UPDATE: Hey Rick, don't tick off the chicks. NOTE: Forgot to include Chris Bowers' post today on Pennsylvania. Don't miss it. Where does Ricky reside? Nah, not peeping Toms, but a missing Ricky residence, maybe. I've had several requests lately to talk about the Pennsylvania race between Santorum and Casey. So, when this issue came [...]

UPDATE: More from Laura Rozen. UPDATE: If you haven't seen Rep. Jane Harman's post for the Agonist, it's a worthy read. She takes a strong stance against any war with Iran. It's the latest political game show. You know, like trading nuclear rods for mangos. But if you believe Bush really wants to talk to [...]
Wait until you read this one. It is simply incredible. I've been all over the Iranian badge story, as you undoubtedly know by now. But this latest development defies all rational thinking. The man who fabricated the whole story was invited to the White House as an “expert” yesterday. You just can't make this stuff [...]
Laura Ingraham's Hotel Balcony I'd like to shove the latest tragedy about reporter Kimberly Dozier, the CBS correspondent who came close to dying in Baghdad, down Laura Ingraham's pie hole. Lord knows, it's big enough. Ingraham, back from the war a few months ago, was all high and mighty after her hack radio Iraq tour, [...]
Al Gore is a Tease UPDATE: Here's a “draft Al Gore” blog that looks like just a very basic start up effort. Al Gore delivers his speech at the Guardian's Hay Festival in Wales. Photograph: Chris Jackson/Getty Images I know he's a “recovering politician,” but this is killing me. He's saying all the right things [...]
The “War on Terror” is for Girlie Men General Richard Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the National Press Club on Monday that he had “objected to the use of the term 'war on terrorism' before, because if you call it a war, then you think of people in uniform as being [...]
At Least they Didn't Talk About S-E-X I'm still waiting for Chris Matthews to make Rudy a subject of \”Pornball.\” After all, who could be a more titillating candidate? Rudy had an affair with his aide while still married. Then, when his wife got fed up and kicked him out, he lived with two gay [...]
What Now for Terror Guy? It's a man! It's the president! It's Terror Guy! Two in a CBS news crew killed, with one person seriously wounded. Afghanistan is in flames. Iraq needs more troops! In the latest installment of the Adventures of Terror Guy, things have gotten very grim for our anti-hero. The “war on [...]
MEMORIAL DAY: The Republican Military Myth Revealed Lt. John F. Kennedy with other crewmen on board USS PT-109, 1943. As President John F. Kennedy said, “the great enemy of truth is very often not the lie â€¦ but the myth.” Nothing defines this more than the Republican myth that they are stronger on national security [...]
It won't talk you long. I do it every week. But today it was really easy. There is only one woman invited on the Sunday talk shows today. Oh, and she's a conservative: Kate O'Beirne. That's all, folks. FOX NEWS SUNDAY: Sens. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) and Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) and Staff Sgt. Alfred Lanier, [...]
Circa 2004…We still don’t know the half of it. My uncle suffered from PTSD after flying continuous mission in WWII. My brother was a Marine waiting for word from President Kennedy during the Cuban crisis. But nobody in my family had to face what Iraqi war veterans are facing. I cover the military all the [...]
Kerry's Hog Farmer Challenge Al Gore and John Kerry are new men these days. Gone is the tongue tied Al Gore and his stage fright. John Kerry's inability to make a declarative sentence is kaput. But since Gore keeps saying he's not running, let's take another look at John Kerry. As regular readers know, I [...]
UPDATE: Steve Soto reels out this story a bit. Like me, he also thinks the threat from Gonzales and Mueller was real on this one. I know many are cynical about this, but this element is serious. Soto's take on Cheney is good, but frankly, I didn't even pay the Post story any mind, because [...]
“… You had to be Dan Brown to decode the story. No offense to your newspaper, but I mean, it was kind of written in code. … Readers get annoyed when newspapers don't just come out and say what they know.” – Jonathan Alter on “Hardball” MEDIA MATTERS has the story! Matthews was downright hilarious [...]
Bush's Theater of the Disingenuous Wolffe: ..And for me the big giveaway was at the end of that answer, I don't know if you can see it on camera, but the President flashed a big grin to those of us sitting in the front rows. It didn't seem that he was quite as contrite as [...]

THE 21st century world offers ways to tweak your appearance, or alter it altogether, with women finally able to combat directly the comparison that’s always been around. Men look distinguished as they age, while women look old, unattractive, or to use Rush Limbaugh’s favorite comment, who wants to look at a woman with wrinkles? The 2012 plastic surgery statistics are out and the American Society of Plastic Surgery tells the story.
The real question about Hillary is this: When people take a new look at her in the coming years, will they see the past or the future — Mrs. Clinton or Madam President? – Maureen Dowd IT’S A classic front page from Huffington Post, coupled with a post by Jason Linkins, which details what’s been going on.

“Norma Rae is a survivor and for the first time in her life she’s got a chance to become something more… a winner.” – Promo for “Norma Rae” CRITICS like Anne-Marie Slaughter, but especially Maureen I-Love-My-Pearls Dowd, and others [most of whom didn't read the book or do their homework] who are blaming Sheryl Sandberg for being a billionaire Ivy League graduate, while accusing her of letting corporations and government off the hook, are missing a major point.
Great sex doesn’t always just happen. Sometimes, it takes a little planning, especially if — like many Americans — you’ve been in a bit of a sex rut. Do some prep work by turning your bedroom into a love nest: Make the bed (with new, or at least clean, sheets), tidy up, light a candle or two, and queue up a sexy playlist on your iPod.
“You Don’t Own Me” PSA -Official from You Don't Own Me on Vimeo. WHO DOESN’T know the song “You Don’t Own Me,” sung by Leslie Gore? The movie First Wives Club helped to reignite the relevancy of the song.
“Last night I interviewed Jill Stein the presidential candidate for the Green Party on this show. And I confess right now, I should have asked her to just get out of the race.” – Jennifer Granholm, “The War Room” [Current TV] THE ARGUMENT Jennifer Granholm makes above is a tactic that no longer fits the times.
“With that drum magazine, he could have gotten off 50, 60 rounds, even if it was semiautomatic, within one minute,” Chief Oates said. [New York Times] IN THE GAPING MAW of our leadership vacuum stands Aurora Police Chief Daniel Oates, whose resolve, vulnerability and humility inside the vortex of a man made hell revealed what nobody in Congress or either political party has shown in decades. Leadership without regard to anything but his own duty to the people, which included the cops in the eye of volcanic carnage.
“Rick Doblin has done a lot for the field, but he is more of a populist,” Grob says. “We need careful and controlled scientific studies showing the efficacy of these drugs so funding can continue.” Broader awareness of these sorts of end-of-life psychedelic studies could be good for everyone, the researchers say.
*updated below* So much for keep calm and carry on, what Joe Scarborough proclaims to be his motto. It was the weirdest one-on-one back and forth with a high profile talking head imaginable. It makes high school look mature.

Despite rising public concern about the federal budget deficit, Americans favor keeping Social Security and Medicare benefits as they are rather than taking steps to reduce the budget deficit (by 60% vs. 32%). – Public Wants Changes in Entitlements, Not Changes in Benefits This is starting early, so it’s time to revisit the facts.
“If we can prove that a biological attack originated in a country that attacked us, then all bets are off.” – Sect. Hillary Clinton Women can do it, too.
The interview with Obama by George Stephanopoulos wasn’t nearly as contentious as the interview with the Edwardses. No Republican talking points from Stephanopoulos yesterday, like when he accused Edwards of abandoning the troops with this beauty: “Do you think the Democrats should be saddled with the idea of completely cutting off funding for the troops?” Or this one: “You know, a lot of Democrats still in the Senate think that your position here is cynical political theater.
