Thomas Frank, the author of What’s the Matter With Kansas, writes an insightful assessment of the 2004 election in the NY Review of Books.
The 2004 presidential campaign provides a near-perfect demonstration of the persistent power of backlashas well as another disheartening example of liberalism’s continuing inability to confront it in an effective manner. So perfect, in fact, that it deserves to be studied by political enthusiasts for decades to come, in the manner that West Point cadets study remarkable infantry exploits and MBAs study branding campaigns that conjured up billions out of nothing but a catchy jingle.
