Marc Ambinder wonders about Senator Hillary Clinton’s lack of disclosure.
Michelle Malkin gives us a view of the “meltdown” of progressives in California trying to censure Senator Feinstein.
That’s what Marc Ambinder is reporting according to one of his readers.
It’s awfully difficult to table an opportunity to rip Dan Rather, but I’m not gonna do it. Instead, I’m going to shower him with thanks and praise. Dan Rather’s report on the Farm Bill is required viewing. The report is straight out of the land of make believe.
You can watch the entire report here.
Call it an endorsement. Markos is putting all his nutroots capital behind the IL-3 Democrat primary challenger.
Markos lights a match, will it start a fire?
Would it kill CNN to not include partisan supporters of the various candidates in their post-debate spin?
Would it kill CNN to disclose that James Carville is a partisan Clinton supporter when talking about the presidential race?
Would it kill James Carville to disclose that he is a partisan Clinton supporter when on the air talking about the presidential race?
More please. The Media is as good at disclosure as Barry Bonds is at telling the truth.
Allahpundit has more fun with reasonable cast member of “The View”.
With President Bush, she respects the office of the President, but not the actual President. That might be satire. You never know.
Good luck finding out who is behind these phone calls. The AP story provides some nibbles, but nothing that hooks.
Residents in New Hampshire and Iowa have received phone calls raising questions about Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, his Mormon faith and the Vietnam War-era military deferments he received while serving as a missionary in France.
Western Wats, a Utah-based company, placed the calls that initially sound like a poll but then pose questions that cast Romney in a harsh light, according to those who received the calls. In politics, this type of phone surveying is called “push polling” — contacting potential voters and asking questions intended to plant a message in voters’ minds, usually negative, rather than gauging peoples’ attitudes.
I’ve got a good idea who’s paying for this push poll.
Update: I added some trackback links. I read the Hotair post from Allah. A Kevin Tracy showed up on the HA trackback. Went over there and found a Huckabee supporter enthusiastic about the push poll and its intentions. You don’t say.
Update 2: Western Wats founder and chairman helped launch the biz school at BYU. And a search of campaign contributions records reveals one Western Wats dialer that has maxed out a primary contribution to Romney. Fork, meet road.
The NY Sun has the report.
Overall, agents on Wednesday hauled away more than 2 tons of copper coins and 500 pounds of silver coins, as well as records and computers, the founder of the currency system, Bernard von NotHaus, told The New York Sun by phone from Miami. Although not present in Evansville, Ind., for the raid, Mr. von NotHaus said he has been told that the government agents left business cards from the FBI and Secret Service. Neither agency would confirm or deny the raid when contacted by the Sun.
Instapundit posts about a Congressional Research Service study that found 1981 and 1982 to have higher casualties in the US Armed Forces than the period of 2005 and 2006.
