The Big Flip: HC GOP recriminations and navel-gazing (11/12/08 edition)

Texas Watchdog calls our attention to some interesting posts on National Review about Harris County's flip to the Dems

Last Thursday, David Frum apparently noticed the flip.

Since then, he's added three posts of reader emails interpreting the results, here, here, and here.

Shortly after the election, former Harris County GOP chair Gary Polland blasted the way the current regime (i.e. Woodfill/Blakemore) conducted the election. Sadly, the article will eventually scroll from the front page of the site, and there is no permalink currently available, which is something of a statement in itself on the local GOP's technological competence. The County Seat adds some perspective to the Polland broadside.

Those of you who followed the links and read the commentary -- what's your take? What are these folks getting right, getting wrong, and leaving out in terms of Harris County's big flip?
