Paul Begala on TPMCafe

This is getting a lot of front-page blog coverage today, but in case you missed it, Mr. Begala's come up with a must-read.

Here's a sample:
Such is the hatred of the far right at the dawn of the 21st Century. And my how the optical worm has turned. Today it is the left invoking faith, flag and family, while the right destroys crosses. Today it is the left that honors the war dead, raises up a Gold Star Mother and publicly prays for our troops, while the right viciously attacks a woman who gave her country everything. Today it is the left that patiently and peacefully respects the Office of the Presidency, while the right diminishes the office by claiming it's more important for the President to go bike-riding with a sports hero than comfort the mother of a war hero.

This brings up a fact that I am still shocked gets so little play. NEVER in the history of the presidency have we had such an absent president. He is the most vacationing president in our history. And he spends more time 'on the road' promoting his agenda (anyone remember the Social Security tour) than any other president. Since usually I disagree with his policy, I guess I should be grateful that he isn't around more. But somehow I think one of the most powerful men in the world ought to actually show up for work a little more.
