The sliming of Graeme Frost...

Paul Krugman has this Op Ed in today's New York Times that is well worth reading. He describes the Right Wing efforts to slime Graeme Frost, the 12-year old boy that delivered the Democratic response to President Bush two weeks ago. The young boy spoke about how his family had benefited from S-chip, the Federal insurance program for children.

I should note that Op Ed's in the NYT are again available to all readers at no cost.


Over at the Guardian (UK)they have just reported that Al Gore and the Climate Change Panel have won the Nobel Peace Prize. I expect this will increase the pressure on him to join the Presidential race. At this stage he would be the choice of many progressive Democrats for President.
