National Security Ad Outbreak updated Clinton’s ad sure got people’s attention, including the Obama camp. But her team got what they wanted, because cable outlets have been running it all day. Free media, baby. Ben Smith has the video of the Mondale ad, which the ads above mimic to one degree or another. I’ve got [...]
What Will Gay and Lesbians Get for Their Obama Cash? Boy do politicians love the cash that comes in from the gay and lesbian community. But supporting their issues and the people who stand up for them is another matter, especially for Mr. Obama it seems. Susan over at NoQuarter posted on this earlier today [...]
Here’s Clinton’s statement: Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton announced today that she has cosponsored legislation to ban the use of Blackwater and other private mercenary firms in Iraq. "From this war’s very beginning, this administration has permitted thousands of heavily-armed military contractors to march through Iraq without any law or court to rein them in or [...]
So, is this a big deal? … .. The Obama campaign told CTV late Thursday night that no message was passed to the Canadian government that suggests that Obama does not mean what he says about opting out of NAFTA if it is not renegotiated. However, the Obama camp did not respond to repeated questions [...]
When last we convened on this story, the entire traditional media, cable outfits like CNN, and Obama blogs across the spectrum, were all in the tank for Obama. They had collectively pronounced untrue the story CTV had reported about Mr. Obama’s campaign aide(s) (senior staff, worker bees or whatever title you want to include so [...]
Drudge Blows Prince Harry’s Cover updated Prince Harry fighting in Afghanistan Drudge blows Harry’s cover. All that matters to Drudge is a scoop, so I’m not going to link to him. But if a Democratic blogger or journalist did this the wingnuts would rightfully blow the roof. Some Republicans have no scruples at all when [...]
Wingnut radio is filled with these types of guys. Colbert takes Cunningham out. But he’s so upset with McCain! Hilarious. Lambert’s hosting Paul Lukasiak, who has a terrific new post up on independents v. moderates, Obama v. Hillary. Check it out: Based on available exit polling from states that held primary elections, while Obama dominates [...]
Call me cynical, but this move was considered last year. What is the U.S.S. Cole going to do off the coast of Lebanon? NBC news just reported that some suspect Syrian mischief in Lebanese elections, which are stalemated. But again, what is this warship* going to do about it? We’re going to get involved? I [...]
“The facts of our story are accurate.” – Greg McIsaac, Communications Manager, News Information and Current Affairs, CTV The NAFTA – Obama story gets more interesting. I called CTV to verify the story, especially given the Obama campaign’s cries that it’s “inaccurate.” After asking Greg McIsaac of CTV if they were sticking by their story, [...]
This race is still very tight. The delegate count: The NBC News Hard Count is Obama 1,192, Clinton 1,036. Obama picked up two more superdelegates last night and this morning bringing the superdelegate total to Clinton 254, Obama 203. (Since Feb. 5, Obama has picked up 33; Clinton has lost a net of six.) That’s [...]
Quite a kerfuffle stirring. The above should be even more alarming to the Obama campaign than the other video being circulated. A report out of Canada says Obama’s promise on NAFTA is just words. Within the last month, a top staff member for Obama’s campaign telephoned Michael Wilson, Canada’s ambassador to the United States, and [...]
Welcome to John McCain TV. We’re going to see a lot of it. Since the topic is turning to Iraq anew, the latest developments are not good news. If Obama is hoping to earn respect on military matters, he needs to keep articles like this from popping up. No matter who the Democratic nominee is, [...]
The background to Sean Wilentz’s “Race Man,” is important for the clip above. Make sure you read it.
… .. You can’t even find it listed at his Senate Web site, but Sen. Obama is the chairman of the Subcommittee on European Affairs for the Senate Foreign Relations committee. That subcommittee oversees “U.S. involvement with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), relations with the European Union (EU), and the Organization for Security and [...]

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.

“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.

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.
