An amusing article at Captain’s Quarters, today…. Susan Estrich either wants to build credibility as a satirist, or her latest column provides a long-overdue look in the mirror for Democrats. Detecting more a whiff of the so-called Bradley Effect in primaries where Barack Obama holds solid polling leads only to mysteriously fall short of Hillary […]

Gee how did I ever live with Maureen Dowd behind the New York Times’s firewall?    How bad is Mrs. Clinton’s campaign going?    Even MoDo, NY Times, is distancing herself from Mrs. Clinton.

The United States Senate is working again, against the interests of the American people. By a vote of 51 to 45, the Senate, while passing the authorization for intel gathering, added section 327 to the bill.

Are you in love with a staffer on Capitol Hill, someone who works at a think tank, or just a plain, old political wonk?
