Daily Kos Radio's Kagro in the Morning show podcasts are now available through iTunes.

Federal government managers are preparing employees for yet another government shutdown threat, so I guess we'll keep an eye on that. Oh, and yes, we might also get in another judicial appointments filibuster fight, as well.

Meanwhile, the traditional media seems largely convinced that this is all still the fault of both sides, equally. So, the future's looking pretty bright! The fever's probably just about to break!

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.

  •  VA Gov = terry mac over cooch (3+ / 0-)

    Democrat Terry McAuliffe has vaulted into the lead over Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II in a Virginia governor’s race that has left many voters sour on both candidates, according to a new Washington Post-Abt SRBI poll.

    McAuliffe leads 47 percent to 39 percent among likely voters, with Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis’s 10 percent suggesting an unrest among voters not satisfied with either major-party contender. In a one-on-one matchup without Sarvis in the mix, the poll shows a narrower, 49-to-44-percent race between McAuliffe and Cuccinelli among likely voters — but still flips Cuccinelli’s 10-point lead from this spring.

    I think Ed Rogers wins that one today.

    Some of the commentary about the political harm facing Republicans over the looming government shutdown may be overestimated. I believe there may be such a thing as “shutdown fatigue” among voters.


    No one is winning this fight. Does either party believe it can survive for much longer with this kind of dissatisfaction among their consumers? Voters might just go shopping for a better offer.

    For the first time, I see the ingredients there for a third-party movement. It wouldn’t take much for a conservative third party to gather enough votes in a few districts and states to make a big difference. But any such movement would have to coalesce around a leader, and I don’t see who that person might be.

  •  Bring on the GOP obstructionists. Let's help ... (0+ / 0-)

    ... them parade their political wares.

    As Kos and many others have pointed out, there are no comparable beings on the Democratic side. Many in the mainstream media are deliberately ignorant to this or, like Chuck Todd who I used to admire, proudly declare that it's not their job to point out this lack of balance and equivalency.

    We must make it harder to be deliberately stupid.

    After all, "Know Nothing" should not be a badge of honor or integrity.

    2014 IS COMING. Build up the Senate. Win back the House : 17 seats. Plus!

  •  Filibuster Cruz - Recap of Day One (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    David Waldman

    I know you will probably touch upon this in today's show, so I thought I would recap Day One of the Cruz show and highlight some of the stuff I found amusing.

    First Cruz objected to Reid's Unanimous Consent request to confirm the appointment of some low level Federal Judges.  Not because he had any concerns about the judges, but because he simply was trying to delay the introduction of the CR that Reid had just announced.  After the objection, Reid used his floor privilege as Majority Leader to give Cruz an indirect tongue lashing over the whole looming CR / ACA fight.  They then engaged in a private colloquies on the Senate floor with Cruz pleading his case as he stood over Reid seated at his desk.  Boy, I would have loved to have been a fly on Reid's desk.  Anyway, when they went back live on C-Span, Reid again made his motion to approve the judges and Cruz did not object.  End of first battle, Score Reid 1, Cruz 0.

    Cruz later got up and asked consent to speak for 20 minutes, where he planned to end his speech with a couple unanimous consent motions on the CR.  Reid said he would love to listen to Cruz's speech and his motions, but he had a prior commitment (TRANSLATION: Can you get to the point because I'm not going to sit here and listen to your verbal sewage).

    Cruz then volunteered to make his motions first so Reid could leave for his appointment (TRANSLATION: Fine, I'll do them now so you can go to your pretend meeting).

    Reid thanked his "good friend" Senator Cruz and promised on his honor that he would listen to the entirety of Cruz's 20 minute speech before day's end (TRANSLATION: I'll listen to your crappy speech, but I'd much rather use the 20 minutes to have a root canal without anesthesia).  Aaahhhh, Senate comity, or at least the appearance of it.

    Cruz's first motion was a unanimous consent request to pass the House CR as is (i.e., with de-funding of the ACA intact).  Reid reserved his right to object.

    Cruz's second motion was a unanimous consent request to require 60 votes to pass any proposed amendments to the House CR (the "Silent Filibuster").  Reid again reserved his right to object.

    Stopped listening at that point because there was no way I was going to listen to Cruz for 20 minutes.  I would assume that after Reid listened intently to a replay of the Cruz speech (YEAH, RIGHT!), he came back and objected to Cruz's two motions.  Score Reid 3, Cruz 0.

    I guess today there will be more bloviating on the Senate floor by Cruz while we wait for the Cloture motion which Reid filed Monday to end debate on the motion to begin debate on the House CR, to "ripen" as required under the Senate Rules.

    Well, got to go out and buy more popcorn.
