  • A speaker at the Council on Foreign Relations says the Bush administration has "failed the country" and deserves "the lowest grade of any I've known." The speaker? Republican Senator Chuck Hagel.
  • At Blue Hampshire, Elwood has a poll: How should we pay for Republican adultery. Right now, "just borrow from Social Security" is winning, with capital gains taxes in second.
  • Last night, Mitt Romney made a big deal out of being a real Red Sox fan, not like that panderer Rudy Giuliani. Problem being, he flubbed his big claim: He said Red Sox fans waited "87 long years" for a World Series victory. It was 86.
  • From what Atrios says, it sounds like financial reporters are about as awesome as political reporters.
  • And speaking of awesome political reporters, one of Joe Klein's sources has outed himself and it's Pete Hoekstra.
  • Gail Collins:

    Every sign points to the party nominees being chosen by the first week in February. (If given the choice, would you prefer to see your Christmas stocking filled with a lump of coal or 10 months of Clinton vs. Romney?) But on the Republican side, it’s not hard to imagine the poor voters veering from one to the other. (Him? — Oh, god no. How about — him! No, wait, what were we thinking? )

    Maybe they’ll vacillate until the bitter end, leaving it all up to the final primary in South Dakota in June. And that would be great. Finally, instead of allowing a few thousand corn farmers to decide the fate of the nation, we could place the power where it rightfully belongs, with a few thousand wheat farmers.

  • The Right's Field points out that if Rudy Giuliani wants to take credit for reduced snowfall in NYC, he has to take credit for the city's bedbug problem too.
  • A chronological coincidence? Trent Lott's brother-in-law and nephew have been indicted for bribery just days after he announced his resignation.
  • Carson Daly is a picket-line crossing piece of scum.
  • The December 10 Democratic debate on CBS has been canceled given the lack of resolution of labor issues there and the refusal of candidates to cross a picket line to debate.
  • Former Representative Henry Hyde is dead.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
