Hope On The Way

H

Jay Nordlinger is not the first to comment on this:

n this brilliant speech of Edwards’s, he said, repeatedly, “Hope is on the way” — a variation on Dick Cheney’s 2000 cry, “Help is on the way.” But as far as I know, no one has paused to acknowledge the stupidity of “Hope is on the way.” Hope is a present condition, pointing to brightness in the future. If you want Kerry and Edwards to win — and think they will win — hope is not on the way, but here: the hope of their victory in November.

You’d think with all the NEA members in the crowd, someone could have prevented that.
