Pelosi Should Appear for Wynn & Edwards

By |October 31st, 2007|

Donna Edwards is an amazing woman and would be an incredible asset to the House. I've met her and interviewed her, so I've seen what she's got first hand. She's running again against Mr. Wynn, whom is getting the support of Speaker Pelosi. It's time for a little diplomacy from the Speaker, because no female [...]

Edwards Onslaught Continues

By |October 31st, 2007|

via Greg Sargent Hillary Clinton is "unelectable," so says Edwards in a Halloween edition of "Scary Times." The question from Edwards: What if Hillary Clinton is the Democratic nominee? The answer: Rudy Giuliani will be the next president. If this is supposed to be cute it's not. If it's supposed to be funny no Democrat [...]

Russert Leads The Boys in All Out Clinton Assault

By |October 31st, 2007|

The debate last night was something else. I've never been prouder to be a Democrat. But evidently Tim Russert felt that with Hillary Clinton the frontrunner it was his job to do what her opponents have been unable to do for months: attack her full out, no matter the subject or tactic. So Russert came [...]

Two Cents for Obama

By |October 30th, 2007|

Andrew has advice for his favorite candidate and he is partially right. But what he should really be doing is attacking Giuliani. I say partially, because he definitely should keep his target area wide to include all of the Republicans. They've given him a perfect shot. But it appears that some GOP frontrunners are once [...]

2008 Democrats Amass Against Mukasey

By |October 30th, 2007|

What an embarrassing exchange for a man who wants to be the Attorney General of the United States. These people seem to come in with great resumes, only to be shrunk to mere mouthpieces once the Bush policy is poured into their heads. Senator Dodd came out against Mukasey. So did Senator Obama. "We urgently [...]

Rudy’s Neocon Crazies

By |October 30th, 2007|

Rudy's Neocon Crazies updated UPDATE: Think Progress has more. The above interview, which TPM caught I'm happy to say, really is instructive. Mr. Podhoretz shows no patience, respect or tolerance for the point of view Fareed Zakaria is offering. The simple truth is that containment and sanctions worked for Saddam, as well as many other [...]

Dobson was the high point for the "values voters." He leveled the boom on 'Mr. 9/11." "They talk about the lesser of two [...]

Ronald Reagan: ‘Salesman’ Over Substance

By |October 29th, 2007|

That sound you just heard was the collective explosion of Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter's heads exploding. If only. Long before former President Gerald Ford left the mortal plain, he let fly and Tom DeFrank got the story and has been making the rounds, first on "Meet the Press." This exchange on Ronald Reagan is [...]
