|GOP invested to win, we do not
GOP won the election because they've invested in winning. They spend more money on think tanks, legislative groups, media and everything then the democrats - and a lot of this money is focused on ...
I love Barack Obama as my president. I agree with Paul Krugman. He - Obama - is one of the most effective, underappreciated Presidents in a long time. Plus, he's a really great human being. ...
|What is wrong w/NY Times?
This morning, I read the paper and scan story about the amazing result from Obamacare - 7.3 million people are still enrolled and paying premiums - another result that exceeds promises, expectations.
|Daily Kos - (traffic) anomaly? Is the Liberal Blogosphere Dead?
I just read Kos' diary about the Daily Kos setting traffic record after traffic record every month. That's great news because my worry is that the liberal blogoshere is otherwise dead. Remember ...
|NYT: Sun. Morning Shows Book GOP over Dems (60% to 40%)
The New York Times had a story on Sunday entitled: "On the Sunday Morning Talk Shows, a Rather Familiar Cast of Characters" It mainly talks about how certain Senators - e.g., McCain and Graham -- ...
|Ruth Bader Ginsburg - I love you. Please resign right now.
I just read Jeffrey Toobin's wonderful piece about Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I love her. She is a hero. I want her to resign right now. Toobin - a weird guy with great access to the court - quotes ...
|The Missing White Voters - New Zombie GOP Meme
My GOP relatives are now posting that the reason Romney didn't win is that "our base didn't show up." To paraphrase their thinking they same to be making the argument that: the electorate didn't ...
|GOP Debacle - Must listen
I don't know about you guys, but I've been a little suspicious of the "future of the GOP" pieces- on Matthews and Maddow -- that feature David Frum and posit that he's speaking for the GOP. As we ...
|Who's in for 2014?
I view last night as a big victory in the long term war. I am savoring the victory but hungry for more. I really hope OFA goes to the DNC and the DNC does something with it. I am ready to go and ...
|332 Baby - Can we give Drew Linzer his due?
He nailed it. 332 (and he's had the number for awhile). Sam (Wang) had 332 and then backed away. All Hail Votomatic - maybe the Washington Post will buy Drew out!
|VA Turnout Above '08
Check it out ... And, here's the great part Palmer said state elections officials have been assisting some localities that are experiencing especially long lines, including Henrico, Prince William,
|Hey Worrywarts: Don't Worry, Be Happy: O's Fundamentals Looking Good
Hey Worrywarts... Don't worry be happy. I know PPP might have cost some of us some sleep with the Ohio, IA and NH numbers (it did me) but not to worry. Why? Well, because the fundamentals of the ...
|Romney was a dick at the Al Smith dinner
Anyone else notice that all of his jokes were at Obama's expense and none at his own. Whereas Obama actually made fun of himself along with Romney. I wonder if Romney has ever made fun of himself ...
|Debate Game Theory: Post Game Analysis. Mitt's Team Blew It.
So, Romney's team blew it, game theory wise. They got greedy and doubled down on debate 1 strategy and it blew up on their faces. In debate 1, Romney's team unveiled a bold, new strategy for ...
|Campaigns' debate agreement limits Candy Crowley's role - according to Time
Time got the agreement between the campaigns for rules for the Townhall debate and, according to that agreement, Crowley's power as moderator is limited and is only supposed to enable her to: cull ...
|Townhall Debate Rules - What are they?
The commission on presidential debates won't release rules for this upcoming debate. And there seems to be uncertainty about how this will go down.
|Debate Game Theory, Is Romney Team Playing 3D Chess, Obama Team Checkers?
Game Theory is fun -- you look at the parameters of the game, your assets and your opponents likely moves/options in the context of those parameters and then plan your moves - in that context - to ...
|I am no longer freaking out
But, I see lots of people freaking about Gallup poll, new FL polls, bad trend(s). I don't get it. I was there yesterday but not today. Biden's performance does matter and these polls do not ...
|Good news: Romney Family, Tagg, Takes Over..To Let Mitt Be Mitt (a Dick).
Politico has a big story about the Romney rebellion and how the family has taken over from Stuart Stevens - who was apparently responsible for the first debate success as well as Clint - in a bigger ...
|Obama is wide awake, mofos
Yes, he f'ed up at the debate but otherwise it's been an amazing run by his team. Maybe Obama made a mistake at exactly the wrong time and will lose because of it but it is not fair, correct, or ...
|All that ad $ - why so much $ in TV – is it all greedy waste (we hope)?
“You start to follow the money, and you don't know where the fuck it's gonna take you” – Detective Lester Freamon (the Wire) So, in yet another effort, to face down the anxiety that death ...
|Romney’s logo – sign of deluded, micromanaging candidate?
Romney’s logo is bad, very bad. Ask any of your designer friends. It looks like it is homemade and from the 1970s. It is amazing this is being used in a presidential race. His marketing pros are ...
|Advertising – Will all that $ work for Romney (from a marketing guy)
I’m worried about Obama’s several hundred million advertising budget deficit. But, as a marketing guy, I started to think about what Romney’s ad have to do to get enough votes to win and it ...
|Politico Says Lib Blogs Don't Support Krugman
In another case of stellar (really bullshit) reporting, Politico claims that no liberal blogs are supporting what Krugman says ...
|Media Matters - Where are you?
I love media matters. I applaud their courage in taking on Fox everyday. But, I am perplexed as to why they give a pass to the vast majority of journalists from the Washington Post, New York Times,
|(Sort of) New NYT: Issa screwed small shareholders
Issa's company DEI holdings appears to have ...
|Obama was right, I was wrong
I literally couldn't sleep after the debt ceiling debacle because I was so mad at our president's wussy ways, but this am, I realized that Obama (and probably Axelrod) were probably right and I was ...
|Daily Negative Politico Obama Headline - White House Not Camelot! OMG!
Everytime I can stomach it, I go over to Politico to check out the "conventional wisdom." Everytime I go, there is another negative headline about Obama. Not surprising but shameless partisanship. ...
|the new unreality based community
I can no longer stand to read my local paper, the Washington Post, Politico or any of the other mostly, I've come to realize, republican media. I can only stomach Daily Kos, TPM, Huff Post and a few ...
|I kind of want O'Donnell to win -- What's wrong with me?
I know, I know, this means we might have 54 to 46 rather than 53 to 37 but still, I would relish seeing the David Broders of the world have to deal with Senator O'Donnell and still calling for "...
|Why I Became Convinced the Daily Kos Doesn't Get it
Just read the recommended diary "Why I Became a Conservative" rant which leads off (I became a conservative) "because I"m lazy and selfish." I think this is a lazy rant and indicative of why we are ...
|Kos Book Amazon Rating 2.5 stars - Help raise the rating
Hey Folks. "American Taliban's Rating is now at 2.5 stars" because the conservatives are flooding the zone with 1 star ratings (by people who clearly have not read the book and just hate this site, ...
|NY 23: Owens? Show them the money!
Just read NY Times article about NY23. Maybe I missed it, but why aren't WE going crazy with raising money for Owens. ...
|WaPo, Fred Hiatt: Global Warming? No Big Deal!
