Breakfast Scramble

DavidL's Breakfast ScrambleWeather Whooper, 13-WHAM-TV [1]:

(Rochester, N.Y.) — A winter storm warning is in effect for Western New York beginning Tuesday morning and going into Wednesday.

13WHAM Meteorologists expect snow on and off for the two days. Snow will begin Tuesday morning and then become steady by the afternoon. 

The good news, is so far this season, the storms have only been about half the size projected.   The bad news, if we even half the predicted snowfall, it will be the biggest storm of the year.

It must have come as something of a surprise to him last week, then, to learn that MI6 hasn’t killed anyone for years. Sir Richard Dearlove, the former MI6 chief, told the inquest into the death of Diana, Princess of Wales that, contrary to claims from two separate whistleblowers – David Shayler, who said the service had drawn up a plan to kill Colonel Gadaffi, and Richard Tomlinson, who described a plot to kill Slobodan Milosevic – the service had not carried out any assassinations since he joined it in 1966.

Stop the Global Warming Cooling, National Post: [3]

Snow cover over North America and much of Siberia, Mongolia and China is greater than at any time since 1966.

The U.S. National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) reported that many American cities and towns suffered record cold temperatures in January and early February. According to the NCDC, the average temperature in January “was -0.3 F cooler than the 1901-2000 (20th century) average.”

Dan Rather endores Bill Keller, New Busters [4]:

If you’re the New York Times’ Jim Rutenberg or Bill Keller the last person you probably want in your corner is Dan “National Guard Forgery Story” Rather. Yet on the syndicated “Chris Matthews Show,” Rather jumped to their defense, on last week’s McCain hit piece, by declaring them “outstanding journalists.”

B.J. Clinton admits the truth, Brietbart [5]:

Mrs. Clinton:  Too Little, Too Late, RCP: [6]

Patrick Healy and Julie Bosman lay out Hillary Clinton’s last ditch, five pronged, “kitchen sink” strategy against Obama. The key graf in the piece is a quote from Democratic strategist Steve McMahon:

“There’s a general rule in politics: A legitimate distinction which could be effective when drawn early in the campaign often backfires and could seem desperate when it happens in the final hours of a campaign,” said Steve McMahon, a Democratic strategist working for neither candidate.
