They don’t call it Hot Air for nothing. Murtha clarifies his statement: The surge, he said in a statement, “has created a window of opportunity for the Iraqi government,” but so far the Iraqi government has “failed to capitalize on the political and diplomatic steps that the surge was designed to provide.” “The fact remains [...]

First, if you haven’t already, read Paul Krugman. I was on a media conference call with the Clinton campaign on health care earlier this morning. It was mainly about an ad Obama is running, but questions were also asked. Oddly enough, Ron Brownstein, formerly of the LA Times, asked what share of income should be [...]
Washington Post Channels Drudge I heard… Did you hear?… No, but guess what?… You’re kidding!! The Post is really outdoing themselves today. First they swiftboat Barack Obama. Then using second hand quotes of a convicted Iran-contra felon, Elliot Abrams, they churn up a story that has Bill Clinton practically salivating over the Iraq war. Trying [...]

It began in January with Fox “News” and Steve Doocy. It continued in February with the Malcolm X hit. In March it was Roger Ailes. April came Townhall. Now, as the primaries close in, it’s the Washington Post. Obama is being swiftboated yet again. It’s despicable. It’s not surprising, because this is what wingnuts do [...]
It was a beautiful thing. Watching the Republicans respond to a gay veteran Special Forces man asking a question about Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. That man also happens to be a Clinton supporter. It will not be forgotten at CNN headquarters or GOP central. It’s unlikely any Republican will forget this travesty. What a colossal [...]
At Long Last the Republicans Face YouTube updated Geez, these white guys are so scared of YouTube, how can they ever protect us from the terrorists? It will stream live on CNN. The RNC YouTube page is classic, though don’t feel obliged to give them traffic. Of course, Clinton is up front and center. The [...]

Via WSJ: Former North Carolina Sen. and Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards launched a Web site today that takes a cloaked strike at front-runner Sen. Hillary Clinton. … ..

Hillary Clinton needs this like she needs another breast. During a campaign swing for his wife, former President Bill Clinton said flatly yesterday that he opposed the war in Iraq “from the beginning” â€” a statement that is more absolute than his comments before the invasion in March 2003. HillaryHub diligently defends Hillary’s other half, [...]
The Mormon Anti Muslim updated Bigotry is a bitch. You’d think Slick Mitt would get it, especially with what’s happening in Iowa. Eventually you’re prejudices will be revealed. Josh Marshall is following Mitt’s muddle every painful step of the way. It began with Mansoor Ijaz: I asked Mr. Romney whether he would consider including qualified [...]
This has turned into quite a little kerfuffle, leaving the Zogby people with a lot of explaining to do. Charles Franklin at Pollster.com takes the last Zogby poll that purported Clinton losing to the Republican wanna bes and tears it apart from top to bottom. A new Zogby Interactive poll, conducted using volunteers over the [...]
via Huffington Post Worst. Line. Of. Questioning. Ever. Couric: If it’s not you, how disappointed will you be? Clinton: Well, it will be me.

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?

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.

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.

The interview with Obama by George Stephanopoulos wasn’t nearly as contentious as the interview with the Edwardses.
