Some key items to read with your morning coffee.
First, the Wall Street Journal explains how petty John Kerry is, and how that pettiness is proportional to his ignorance, as Iraqi PM Allawi set the record straight yesterday in his speech to Congress.
Second, CNN is reporting that Bush has leads in state-by-state polling worth 301 electoral votes -- 23 more than the 278 he would get just by winning the same states he won in 2000 and 31 more than he needs to for winning reelection. [HT: Cap'n Ed]
Third, Mark Steyn cuts Kerry to shreds for his British audience in The Spectator. Always worth a read.
