I have no idea. And if it weren't for Beau, I'd assume it was just me.
Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "Hiding Behind The Leg Of Her Pantsuit"
That is funny.
Politico has some polling stories. First up, Bully Boy Bush is popular again -- it took Barack to do that. Second, Jimmy Carter's not. Jimmy Carter just got done calling southerners racists -- a detail Politico overlooks in their summary. That pissed off more people than the things they list. You really don't expect a former president to sneer at a portion of the country.
I hate Jimmy Cater. What a loser.
Okay, let's talk Third.

Ron Paul. He's only the second politician to get a truest. (Other one is Bill Clinton.)
Jim breaks down the edition.
This was a good one. And we really had nothing until a few minutes before writing.
I really enjoyed this. They wrote this last. They had a piece (probably toss it to one of the community newsletters now) but Jim asked if they could tackle something else stronger? So they went with this.
Betty, Ty, Cedric, Marcia, Isaiah and Ann did this.
Ann, Ava and C.I. wrote this about Terry Gross' problem booking women.
This is a clip of Senator Byron Dorgan explaining what's what in terms of corruption.
I participated in this. I don't know. I really seemed to toss it to the negative of the book. I hadn't planned on doing that. But I just thought about it and I'm just not in the mood for these people showing up now and wanting to pretend like they did something and were always there. They did nothing but cheerlead. They refused to play independent observer or critic. It's an okay book but it just pissed me off.
This will be a recurring feature. I like this.
And this is just us picking out the week's best.
Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
