Republicans achieve top goal in Obama tax-cut plan
A former volunteer with Kentucky Republican Rand Paul's Senate campaign is due back in a Lexington court Tuesday for a hearing on a misdemeanor assault charge for a videotaped scuffle during which a liberal activist's head was stepped on.
...liberals make clear that Obama’s efforts to
strike a lame-duck deal with Republicans will come at a cost: open and
on-the-record taunting about whether the president is a patsy.
Obama compromised with the Republicans and broke his campaign promise to end the Bush tax cuts for the rich. I wonder what he got in exchange? Possibly a delay in his impeachment?
Obama caved to Republican pressure so fast, staffers should check the availability of the team that rescued those Chilean miners. - Will Durst

Chamber of Commerce Revolt?
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is under fire from some local chambers over its hard-hitting $75 million ad campaign to elect a Republican House, with dozens of hometown groups distancing themselves from the effort and a handful even quitting the national group in protest.
“We were getting pounded. We
felt here, in Central Pennsylvania, that the ads they were running were not
professional ads,” said David Wise, president of the Chamber of Business and

To my friend
Margaret Cho, if you ever have a question, call me girlfriend. Don't ever rely
on "sources" who claim to know me or my family. You will be taken every time.
And we need to talk. You say you "don't agree with the family's politics at all"
but I say, if you understood that commonsense conservative values supports the
right of individuals like you, like all of us, to live our lives with less
government interference and more independence, you would embrace us faster than
KD Lang at an Indigo Girls concert.
P.S. If you want to baby-sit Tripp, I could use a night off.
I wonder who wrote that for Bristol?
The Decline of The Washington Post From Watergate To Plamegate
The Washington Post's
editorial page suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. The cause: the
newspaper's inability to come to terms with its cheerleading for the Iraq war.
The symptoms were most recently manifested in an editorial that slammed the
movie, Fair Game, which is a Hollywood treatment of the Valerie Plame/CIA leak
case that culminated with the 2007 conviction of Scooter Libby, Vice President
Dick Cheney's chief of staff. The Post huffed that the movie is "full of
distortions—if not outright inventions."
But the paper's editorialists protest too much—and reveal their own biases.
