If you’re going to make an argument against Hillary Clinton make it. That goes double for a candidate’s official website. Why not just promote your own agenda and strengths, without using a die hard conservative to get the hatchet job done? Via Barack Obama’s official site, through a community blog entry, we get Andrew Sullivan [...]

Ambushed! How’s it feel, Bill-O? Pick me off of the floor. This is hilarious. Do not miss Mike’s DailyKos diary.
Via Greg Sargent. Watch the ad above from Obama, which is airing in Iowa. Sound familiar? “I haven’t spent most of my life in politics, which most of you know, but I have spent enough time in Washington to know how much we need to change Washington.” – John Edwards, circa 2004 primaries As Greg [...]
IRAQ: Talk of Progress Excludes the Political bumped The wingnuts are afire. Between the O’Hanlon-Pollack op-ed and other military news out of Iraq, Republicans think they’ve found a winner. The surge is “working,” progress is being made. However, this discussion is happening in a vacuum that excludes the political. Republicans are also ignoring what the [...]
It includes not only Mr. Bush, but also Alberto Gonzales, which to me is the biggest disappointment. If not in the House, Pelosi stated today that she "would probably advocate" impeaching Bush. But she is so she doesn’t. At a breakfast this morning, which is named after the dear friend we lost, Maria Leavy, Ari [...]
Bill O’Reilly’s Burlesque updated BREAKING UPDATE: Home Depot dumps O’Reilly, though they still need to hear from you. See Aravosis. Did you see Bill-O last night? It was quite a spectacle. Like watching the air go out of a very large tire. Not even Joe’s best friend Lanny Davis nor Kristen Powers would go along [...]
John Edwards, take a bow. Republicans are now trying to horn in on your issue, as David Brooks talks poverty today. Honestly, I had to look four times when I saw the column. I really wasn’t sure who I was reading. Even so, the very first line still surprises and the curious way in which [...]

House Dems to Introduce Impeachment Against Gonzales updated Via MSNBC: A group of House Democrats will introduce a resolution calling on the Judiciary Committee to begin impeachment proceedings against Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. Rep. Jay Inslee (D-WA) will sponsor the measure. It will be dropped in the hopper tomorrow. More to come as available.
I loved this guy. I never missed his "The Tomorrow Show." When it went off the air I was crushed. “Fire up a colortini, sit back, relax, and watch the pictures, now, as they fly through the air.” – Tom Snyder Cocktail hour at our house tonight will include a toast to Tom. He was [...]
Video above by Max Blumenthal As a person of faith, I get incensed when Democratic elders start talking about how so many of us are afraid of religion and that we are reticent to address spiritual issues. I get equally peeved when they push religion, because there are plenty of secularists in America that deserve [...]
How in the world can you write an op-ed talking about winning in Iraq after only visiting Sunni areas in that country? Then to top that omission, to then trumpet winning in Iraq because we’re making military progress? Memo to O’Hanlon and Pollack, it’s the politics that is keeping the pot on boil, boys. Here [...]
Wingnut Paper Hits Obama & Clinton updated Interesting Sunday shows today, with the Obama – Clinton diplomacy debate getting a full airing and then some. But on “Meet the Press”, at least the talking heads managed to acknowledge John Edwards is still in the race. But the main focus remains on the Obama – Clinton [...]
Gonzo Gets With The Program guest post by Mash Today the New York Times reports on the dispute in 2004 that led Alberto Gonzalies to rush to Attorney General John Ashcroft’s hospital room to intimidate a sedated and sick man. The Times explains Gonzalies’ lies: A 2004 dispute over the National Security Agency’s secret surveillance [...]
This is just weird, not to mention wrong. In the blogosphere, pillorying Hillary Clinton is a full-time sport. Her slightest remark, such as a recent assertion that the country needs a female president because there is so much cleaning up to do, elicited this sort of wisdom: “Hillary isn’t actually a woman, she’s a cyborg, [...]

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.

“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.

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.
