Stephen Metcalf in Slate: "Springsteen is no longer a musician. He's a belief system. And, like any belief system worth its salt, he brooks no in-between. You're either in or you're out. This has solidified Bruce's standing with his base, for whom he remains a god of total rock authenticity. But it's killed him with everyone else. To a legion of devout nonbelievers -- they're not saying Bruuuce, they're booing -- Bruce is more a phenomenon akin to Dianetics or Tinkerbell than 'the new Dylan,' as the Columbia Records promotions machine once hyped him."

Problems with John Tierney's NYT column this morning, starting with the way he paints the aristo-Bushes as earnest yeopersons. Also, if there was a coded message in Laura Bush's humor, it was a stiff-arm to the prigs and zealots who think they now run the country, not those dreaded liberals. Tierney of Yale and the Times -- I wonder if he's ever watched an episode of Hee-Haw -- says the effete blue-staters just don't understand real Americans, but that's not the way it looks out here in real America.
