Welding Two Bricks Together

Having it all ways?

Looks like Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Weld is still, um, developing his positions on the issues. During the Atlantic Monthly's celeb-studded State of the Union dinner at the St. Regis, the former Massachusetts governor clapped heartily at President Bush's applause lines. Weld was often the only guy making noise in a Democrat-heavy group that included Julia Stiles, Jonathan Cramer, David Boies, Moby, Boykin Curry, Peggy Siegal and Joe Conason. But when The Atlantic's Jim Fallows asked Weld his opinion of Bush's performance, he answered: "The speech didn't do that much for me. I thought it was smarmy at worst." That's covering bases I didn't even know existed.
Yah huh. Poor Billy. He's about to have his ass handed to him in New York...
