McCain and Petraeus At Odds
"Today it is possible to talk with real hope and optimism about the future of Iraq and the outcome of our efforts there. For while the job of bringing security to Iraq is not finished, as the recent fighting in Basra and elsewhere vividly demonstrated, we're no longer staring into the abyss of defeat and we can now look ahead to the genuine prospect of success." — Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz
"I have repeatedly noted that we haven't turned any corners," Petraeus said. "We haven't seen any lights at the end of the tunnel. The champagne bottle has been pushed to the back of the refrigerator. And the progress, while real, is fragile and is reversible."

"Fortunately, I have the privilege, the distinct privilege today, of introducing a true American hero who defies political norms in Washington," Bellavia said. "Sen. John McCain has spent a lifetime in service to our nation. His example of unwavering courage is a model for every American. Rest assured that men like Senator McCain will be the goal and the men that my two young boys will emulate and admire. You can have your Tiger Woods, we've got Senator McCain."

Subject: Joe Scarborough and Hillary
What's up with a right wing talk show host saying good things about Hillary? I remember him as a US Rep
constantly slamming Hillary and all "Dumocrats". Why the flip flop by Joe? You know him better than any other blogger I've read over the years.
It's all about Joe, don't ya know?
While a sitting U.S. Congressman in 1999, Joe started a weekly tabloid giveaway devoted to bashing the Clintons and anything remotely connected to the Democratic party in Pensacola, FL. The content of Joe's publication, The Independent Florida Sun, was to put it kindly, sophomoric -- only the desktop publisher page design gave it a faint air of credibility. Odd that Joe doesn't mention the content of his publication, eh?
Speaking of sophomoric -- Joe has a segment at the end of his show called "What did we learn today?" All that's needed is Sesame Street music in the background.
Joe is an opportunist, so he fits right in with MSNBC, the home of Opportunistic Journalism.
"More bad news on the economic front. 80,000 people lost jobs last month. 80,000 people lost jobs. But, to be fair, most of those are politicians caught with hookers." --Jay Leno
