I'm sorry, but I don't want to be linked to Andrew Sullivan's end.

Who Will Obama Target Next?

We expect nothing less.

Is anyone liveblogging (obviously not) the NY 20 race? Drudge has dems ahead. Is ACORN involved? Are there any Republican poll watchers? What is Michael Steele doing? Anything?

You realize, everyone, if there's a recount, the dems take it.

Lsst 1 read 90% if the rpreceincts were in and the D had less than a 100 vote lead with a signficiant no of absentee ballots not yet counted. (Won't be until 4/13). It's a cliff hanger.


It shouldn't go Republican. Not with New York's gerrymandering.

A close loss would be a damaging blow to Dems, no matter how they spin it. It's your Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut border and Albany bedroom communities. Although it is rural, it's not exactly all farmland. Gillibrand was a Dem, after all.


The NY Times calls the district heavily Republican and then notes the Dem comes from liberal college artsy town of Saratoga Springs from whence the former Democratic leader of the Senate Joe Bruno funnelled millions into the area. Heavily Republican indeed!

Fresh Air


Bruno was a Republican.


Interesting. From Instapundit, on Sebelius's mortgage interest deduction

Sebelius said she sold her home in Topeka, Kan., for an amount less than the outstanding balance on the mortgage. She continued paying off the loan and the interest for which they continued to claim a deduction.
How is that even possible?

Did anyone else see the press conference with Gordon Brown this morning. According to the Fox anchors, every time he was asked a question you could hear the president's blackberry go off as he was texted the answer. I saw the end and despite all this help he still sounded like a moron.


Jane, for real?

I just googled it and had no luck but did find this:

Barack Obama's Blackberry's Blog



Bruno was a Republican.

Bruno was a Republican RINO.

Fixed that for you.


For real Porchlight. At least that is what Steve Doocey said.

And I posted this in the other thread. All the charges against Stevens have been dropped (by Eric Holder) for prosecutorial misconduct.

I smell a rat.


Hello. That's very nice site but I've seen this before here http://text.inguaro.com/68fc9c90746c68a33138cb58e1b6eaca

If anyone heard Tedisco's ads, it's no wonder the election is close.

In his radio ad, for example, it was impossible to tell if the ad was for a Republican or a Democrat until the announcer ended with Tedisco's name. One would think any Republican could have respectfully made the argument that the Democrats have too much power, and that voting Republican would help provide needed balance, but there was nothing but AIG bonus and "Wall Street" stupidity in Tedisco's campaign, as far as I could tell.

I imagine Steele was in agreement with his strategy.


Wow, Jane. We knew he NEEDED that Blackberry for a reason. Now I guess we know what the real reason is. From the sounds of that FNC report you cite, Blackie doesn't work as well as Teleprompty. Too funny.


Via Instapundit:

http://www.reuters.com/article/politicsNews/idUSTRE5302O820090401>U.S. to drop charges against former Sen. Stevens

The misconduct must have been pretty damn bad for them to just give up on the convictions.


A cynic would say there was no need to defend Steven's conviction. The objective was achieved when he lost re-election.

Case closed

Yes, but I seem to recall that it is a federal crime to use the power of an official office to throw an election for federal office (to prevent exactly this type of thing from happening).


Ranger, my brilliant friend, that law only applies to Republicans screwing over a Democrat.


BTW, Holder basically admitted as much:

From the story I linked:

Holder also was influenced by the age of Stevens, 85, and the fact that he is no longer in the Senate, NPR reported.


What a moron. Holder is even more pathetic than I thought.

There's another stupid move he's made. LUN

Let's see, Tony Dungy, who may become a member of the White House's Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, coached the Tampa Bay Bucs and the Indy Colts. Obama coached the Harvard Law Review and some Chicago agitators. Looks to me as if Dungy has more real executive experience and that Dungy should be POTUS and that Obama should be on some council with no real power.


the April fools joke is typepad no longer can accept my data


Jane, and anybody else perplexed by this, the latest updates to typepad use ajax, the main effect of which is that you can preview and/or edit your posting without redrawing the whole page. Which makes it much faster. Which is good, since PIMF.

The subtlety is what happens when there are other posts made to the thread between when you start and when you actually hit that Post button. From what I have observed, it is fine as long as the current comments still end on the same page (yes, pagination sucks again.) But if the comments have caused the page to increment, then the script gets confused. Fortunately, if you hit "Refresh" at this point, your post will not disappear, and after the Refresh you can hit the Post button. If you are paranoid (who, me?) you can hit Edit and then copy your comment into the paste buffer before you hit the Refresh button.

See LUN for an article on a free speech rally at UMass Amherst. The money quote from the rally was:

“When free speech is limited, thought is limited. Hating free speech is the most oppressive form of hate speech.”

Of course, I'm a completely disinterested observer. :-))
