A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Where Howard Dean meets "High Fidelity": This is funny, comparing presidential hopeful Howard Dean to the record store clerks in "High Fidelity."


The man setting the tone of the campaign so far is Howard Dean, who is reported to be quite popular with Generation X and Y voters. When asked "What is your favorite song?" at a Sept. 9 debate, he responded: "One you've never heard of, Wyclef Jean, 'Jaspora.'"

Note the pose of superiority, the floating insult that Mr. Dean's audience isn't sufficiently courant to know about Jean, this funky, Creole-singing rap artist. Mr. Dean sounds like one of the record-store clerks in the movie "High Fidelity," a hipster geek with too many songs in his mental catalog. Strange but true, the leading Democratic candidate for president is a music snob.


Of course, the truth goes a little deeper than that. Dean, along with many of his Democrat colleagues, is a snob about everything. They know better than the hoi polloi. Don't think. Just vote Democrat.
