The great young american orator aparently lost his tongue.
Where was Barak Obama today? Where was he yesterday? Where was he Tuesday?
He was out-progressived by Senator Dodd, of all people!
Who here can still support him?

I said yes, I'd be delighted to. And a few moments after I hung up, it hit me what I'd just committed to: wandering around a strange neighborhood in the drizzle and cold.
I needn't have worried. (continued below the fold)
A scan and some comments below the cut.
Darksyde posted a link to an article about human-mouse hybrids used for Downs Syndrome research. Obviously, that was snark, but Darksyde couldn't have been farther from the truth. His problem - a difficulty shared by many here on dKOS, myself included - is that he is firmly mired in reality. He should have looked instead to fiction.
Specifically, Surface, in which the villians are aparently creating and cloning vicious and disturbing man-animal hybrids.
It's a fun show, and a bit scary at times. But it can't compare to the horror that comes of knowing that the President of the mightiest nuclear power in the world believes it is true.
Two things to think about: first, Stevens is encouraging the return/donation of Abramoff money, which Bush and others still refuse to do. He can be used as yet another example to counter the 'the money is already spent' excuse and other such dodges. And second, is this an indication that he's serious about his repeated threats to quit the senate?
The plan entails constructing a railway that would go from downtown Raleigh, through NC State University, through the massive suburb Cary, past RDU airport, past IBM's headquaters in RTP, and ending in downtown Durham. The original plan called for completion by 2008.
The original plan called for 60% of the funding to come from the Federal Government, which has funded such projects in the past. Such was not to be.
This a recurring lie I hear from republicans and democrats alike. "Our grandkids will pay for the deficit." What a wonderful dodge.
But it's false.
Detainees were held without being charged, in unpleasant and possibly even dangerous conditions.
And yet, it seems to be largely forgotten. (continued below)
From an article on food testers, page 31:
So, in short, our President believes that the lives of our troops are worth as much as mice.
(I haven't been able to find independent verification of this, but I think that the National Geographic is a fairly reliable source...)
Sometime last March, one of the worst terrorists in the Western hemisphere slipped across the border into the USA. Once in the country, he gave several interviews, made press releases, and was seen by many people. And yet up until a week ago, the State Department denied his presence in the country.
Then, last night, they finally, sheepishly arrested him, after he issued a press release saying that he was planning on leaving the country again - apparently one too many insults for the Department of Homeland Security to withstand.

Senate Majority Leader Frist is expected to take an open-ended approach to the looming floor fight over eliminating the ability to filibuster judicial nominations, opting to allow members from both parties to fully air their concerns and beliefs before forcing a floor vote on the rule changes, a senior GOP aide said Wednesday.
Barring an emergency, Frist is expected to essentially suspend all legislative activity on the floor until the judicial nomination fight is resolved, the aide explained.
As a result, the debate will likely dominate the remaining legislative days on the calendar before the Memorial Day recess and involve long days of lengthy, back-to-back floor speeches.
As KOS said, what this means is that Frist does not have the votes, and plans to hold the floor open to debate until he does.
I believe this is known as a filibuster.
My suggestion for a democratic strategy is simple:
