ABSTRACT
This article presents briefs on the political events of the week.Comments on the candidacy of Howard Dean who even as he spirals toward political oblivion talks straight. Last week, Dean sent a mass e-mail declaring he would make a do-or-die stand in the February 17 Wisconsin primary. From the beginning, there was something fishy about Dean's desperate appeal, which vaguely echoed televangelist Oral Roberts's famous warning that God would "call me home" if his flock didn't pony up. Then there are the Republican charges against John Kerry for his antiwar activities following his distinguished service in Vietnam. Expressing outrage, staffers at the IRS make note of how the president used the agency to get a political message out regarding who should get the credit for tax relief.
