|Condolences to Rep. Louise Slaughter (NY-25) on her husband's death
There's word this evening of the death of her husband, Robert, at age 82. He was a constant presence by her side over the years, driving her back and forth from Rochester to Washington (6+ hours) ...
|(NY-25) Solid lead for our Louise Slaughter
It's taken until just Election-minus-40-days to get any polling from the redrawn NY-25, where veteran progressive fighter Louise Slaughter is getting what's supposed to be one of the stiffest ...
|Digging into the real story behind Rush Limbaugh's Philadelphia station move
Hi there. Me again. It's been a while, I know - life's been intervening, as it sometimes does. But the news breaking tonight about Rush Limbaugh changing stations in Philadelphia deserves some ...
|We are still talking about Rush Limbaugh
...and that's exactly what Rush Limbaugh and the money behind Rush Limbaugh doesn't want to see happening. They were hoping something else would come up to divert our attention, and the radio ...
|Limbaugh: Understanding what the "barter ad suspension" is really about
It took me a few days to finally put all the pieces together here, but I think I finally understand what Premiere Radio Networks, Rush Limbaugh's syndicator, really had in mind when it dropped that "...
|UPDATED: Rush's ad suspension: What it means, and what we should (and shouldn't) do now
Hi there. Me again. Tonight's news about Premiere suspending national advertising on Rush's show is a very big deal...but as with so much about Rush these last few weeks, it's very, very easy for ...
|The most important thing you're going to read all day about Rush's ads
An important thing to remember as we continue to use our free speech rights to speak out against hate radio and its sponsors: The only ads that matter are the ads that are heard over the air. What ...
|How to get your local station to cancel Rush, part 2
On Friday night, many of you saw my first diary on this topic, and I was gratified to see it spend some time on the Wreck List. Several Kossacks suggested I republish it on Monday for some weekday ...
|How to take action against Limbaugh at the local level
**THERE IS A MONDAY UPDATE TO THIS DIARY, HERE !!** I'm in awe of the many Kos-activists who are leading the charge against Rush Limbaugh's sponsors. That's a great way to hit Rush where it hurts, ...
|How do you sleep, Gov. Walker?
Not well, I hope. Because while you might feel some temporary relief at having barely held control of the Senate, it's all downhill from here. Against huge odds and every dirty trick you could ...
|Meanwhile, in birther-land...
If ever there was a day when Orly Taitz and Donald Trump and Pam Geller and the rest all looked especially silly, this would be it. But Orly's in court today, anyway, appearing before a federal ...
|Glenn Beck off the air...in Madison
This is barely a diary, I realize, but this was just too good not to share. Not only has Glenn Beck recently lost his radio affiliates in New York City and Philadelphia, today comes word that he's ...
|It appears Keith is returning to sports
Here's how anonymity cuts both ways: the good news is, even though I work in the media and spend all day being as scrupulously non-partisan as possible, I can still come here to DK and get my ...
|NY-29: We're pissing one away
We all know the numbers: the Republicans need to flip 39 seats from blue to red, just over a month from today, in order to begin wreaking untold havoc on our House and our democracy. ...
|Veteran vs. Debt Collector, or, who says I can't have a Democrat in my district?
You're probably not paying much attention to my congressional district here in upstate New York. I don't blame you. Not only don't we have a congressman here in NY-29 (remember Eric Massa? Yeah, we'...
|NY-23: How soon we forget (UPDATED)
It was just one short year ago that the world was looking to frozen northern New York for one of the Tea Party's first electoral tests: could 'Bagger Doug Hoffman, running on the Conservative line, ...
|MA-Sen: Nobody EVER said this was going to be easy
I'm writing this before the results are in from Massachusetts (except, perhaps, in Chris Matthews' head), and for my purposes here, the result tonight doesn't matter. Whether Coakley pulls it out ...
|A surprising attack on the GOP's victim mentality
My lousy local paper has the annoying tendency to fall back on running Cal Thomas' syndicated opinion columns every few days, and they're usually about as predictable as the nameplate on the front ...
|Mother of Jeebus, Keith. I almost agree with...Rush?!?!
Yeah, I know...I almost want to claw my eyes out just typing that sentence. But after watching Countdown tonight, as I've done religiously almost every night for the last four years or so, I think ...
|McCain kinda gets it (UPDATED with video)
No, not John McCain...his 24-year-old daughter, Meghan, who was just on with Rachel Maddow for two full segments. I'm sure the video will be up soon at the show'...
|Turn off the damn analog TV transmitters, already! (UPDATED)
One of the lesser-noticed headlines out of the Obama transition today is the news that the incoming administration is now supporting the idea of delaying the shutoff of analog ...
|Taking off my journalist hat and crying tears of joy
On Monday, I diaried about what my Tuesday would be like - spent as a working journalist, and thus compelled to conceal my excitement ...
|THANK YOU for doing what I couldn't
Before the diary crush of the big day gets underway, I wanted to say something to all of you here on dKos and across the left blogosphere that I can't say in public: THANK YOU. You see, as readers ...
|How they'd put a bug in Palin's ear tonight (2X Follow-up UPDATE)
First things first: this is not a conspiracy diary. I think the odds rather disfavor the idea that Sarah Palin will be wearing an earpiece tonight, and getting cues fed to her from someone backstage.
|Palin misleads about the size of ANWR (updated 2x)
I know this is barely a diary...but I have to be up early in the morning, I haven't seen it anywhere else, and, well...read on and you'll see...
|NY-26: A shocker tonight in western New York
Good news first: Crazy Jack Davis won't have his name on a ballot this fall. Bad news: neither will Orange to Blue candidate Jon Powers. ...
|The Box McCain's Locked Himself In
Here's the thing: Barack Obama is having a good time out there on the stump. So is Michelle. (Cue fist bump.) And when Joe Biden's got a podium and a microphone, he's the happiest man on earth. ...
|Message Discipline, the GOP, and Us
We're all atwitter this evening because there's a video out there that pulls the curtain back, just barely, to show that Mike Murphy and Peggy Noonan aren't as confident about their VP nominee as we'...
|Understanding the New Yorker's cover selection process
Yes, I know; there are a lot of New Yorker diaries up here right now. But I hope you'll indulge one more, for just a few minutes, as I attempt to make some sense of why a New ...
|Remembering Tony Snow, human being
No, I don't mourn the passing of Tony Snow's politics, nor can I muster much sympathy for him in the context of his professional life. I never met the man, and probably wouldn't have had much to ...
|McCain campaign crosses "Auschwitz" line
So I'm reading Sam Stein's excellent takedown of McCain's Iraq comments over at HuffPo, and this ...
|Baby, day 2 (including more pics and...the name!)
When I sat down yesterday morning to share my little bit of good news in this big crazy world with all my friends here ...
|I had a baby this morning (MORE UPDATES)
Well, my wife had the baby this morning. I just sat there and watched. A boy, a month early, but everything went well. And while I'd like to say something moving and eloquent about a new life in the ...
|The only number that matters tonight
So maybe Clinton wins it by 3 points, or 5, or 8. Doesn't matter, and the commentators on MSNBC (and probably CNN and Fox, too, but I'm not watching those) understand the subtext pretty well. ...
|There are a lot of things I don't know
There. I said it. And if I ever had any reason to doubt that simple truth, I was reminded of it while spending far more of my day than I should have commenting (and responding to comments) in the ...
|Barack Obama crossed a line tonight
I've watched Obama's stump speech plenty of times in the last few weeks, seeing the energy that's building around him all over the country. But standing in the kitchen a few minutes ago, reheating ...
|Help persuade me to bother voting Tuesday
I've never missed an election since the day I turned 18. Not one. Uncontested school board race? I'm there, pulling those levers. Off-year race for town justice and town clerk, on a day I'm traveling?
|NY-29: The road clears for Eric Massa
Yeah, it's still VERY early to be thinking about 2008 congressional races, but there's some potentially very good news here in upstate New York: there won't be a primary on our side in the very ...
