The Therapy Sessions

Lileks is classic, especially in describing the Democratic contenders:
John Edwards: Well let me tell you 'bout the way he walks, the way he acts and the color of his hair. His voice is soft and cool; his eyes are clear and bright, but he's not there.
Joe Lieberman: Dull, earnest, always sounds like he's trying to pass a stone. Not a chance, you say? According to a recent South Carolina poll, 13 percent of Democratic voters prefer Joe, as opposed to 4 percent for Howard "Two Covers" Dean.
Dennis Kucinich: No man with a Mo Stooge haircut has ever been elected president, and Kucinich will be no exception. His Web site compares him to Seabiscuit - another famous horse who came from behind, electrified a depressed nation, and was oddly unconcerned about Saddam Hussein's crimes.
