Tight Race in Iowa 

Only a point separates Edwards, Obama and Clinton.

There are wider spreads on leadership, experience, and honesty.

Have I mentioned that I love 

The Freeway Blogger


I hope these thugs never pray for my recovery 

Over at liberal hate central:
“It’s time,” Ensign said, stressing emphatically that he and all of his colleagues continue to pray for Johnson’s full recovery. “Obviously, we are all still concerned. But this is a United States Senate seat. He was a top target before his health problems and he’s still a top target.”
Senator Johnson's staff replies:
“We don’t fear John Ensign and the national Republican hit men. It’s clear that this is a classless attack by a desperate chairman,” Johnson spokeswoman Julianne Fisher said. “Tim Johnson has a long record of accomplishments for South Dakota, and those accomplishments will be John Ensign’s worst nightmare.”
Heh. Indeedy.

Yearly Kos and the Hateful Falafel Boy 

Al Gore never claimed he invented the Internets. And I didn't invent Yearly Kos.

But way back, a long time ago (June 11, 2004, to be exact), I did suggest the idea of a big lefty blogger convention.

Two years later the first Yearly Kos was launched in Las Vegas. I really wanted to be there, but instead I took my kids on vacation to some other exotic location. A dad's gotta do what a dad's gotta do.

Now Falafel Boy is having a shit-fit because lots of key Democrats are going to be there. O'Reilly is spazzing out of control over the thought that Democratic Presidential candidates will be showing up to meet with hundreds of bloggers -- bloggers who are read by hundreds of thousands of progressive voters, donors, fundraisers, and campaign volunteers.

His 1-mouth mission to marginalize the Daily Kos web site (as a hate site -- that coming from O'Reilly -- go figure) is classic, arch-typical up is down the rabbit hole Orwellian oppo-speak. It's great theater, and hilarious in a cartoonish kind of way.

But it's also a reminder that this is exactly what they do. And they do it even harder when they're on the ropes and running scared. Don't let up. Get them running fast enough and they'll follow one another right over the cliff.


Republican YouTube Debate Questions 

John Cole has a good selection of probable questions from winger bloggers that could end the cowardice of the Republican candidates.

Go read. You'll like them.

Where DID Steve come from? 

Since, if you believe the true believers, God didn't create Steve.

Which brings to mind that classic scene in Inherit the Wind when Brady calls Drummond to the stand as an expert on the Bible, and asks him,
"Then it says here, 'And Cain knew his wife.' Any idea where she came from? Somebody have another creation going on over in the next county?"


Nice to see the Gonzo Impeachment 

is moving right along (for you youngsters, "moving right along" is a quote from the film "Dog Day Afternoon").
Directing the Committee on the Judiciary to investigate whether Alberto R. Gonzales, Attorney General of the United States, should be impeached for high crimes and

1 Resolved, That the Committee on the Judiciary shall
2 investigate fully whether sufficient grounds exist for the
3 House of Representatives to impeach Alberto R. Gonzales,
4 Attorney General of the United States, for high crimes
5 and misdemeanors.
God knows we need some good theater during these trying times.

Impeaching Gonzo 

It should be a slam dunk. That is, if we had a Congress that gave a rat's ass about the Constitution.

Over at left wing conspiracy world headquarters (wingerspeak for Daily Kos), Ms. Laura and KargoX add significant historical perspective.
Elections are the extent of the people's ability to demand accountability, in George W. Bush's mind. And he wants them to be the extent of accountability in your mind, too.

The failure even to hold Gonzales accountable for his part in this would be a complete abdication of the Congress' responsibility to preserve and exercise an absolutely critical element of the ongoing scheme of accountability designed by the Founders. It was to the Congress that the Founders entrusted the only mechanisms of mid-term accountability that could be brought to bear directly on the president and his administration. Giving that up would be an error of incalculable magnitude.
Pray that God gives Congress a spine.
