Michelle says: My dictionary defines “moderator” as “the nonpartisan presiding officer of a town meeting.” On Thursday, PBS anchor Gwen Ifill will serve as moderator for the first and only vice presidential debate.

(AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama on Tuesday called for Americans to get behind attempts to salvage a $700 billion rescue plan for the financial sector, saying that if Wall Street fails ordinary people will also be hurt. “This is no longer just a Wall [...]
Nancy Pelosi is a first class idiot, if she thinks this kind of BS is generating a ‘spirit of cooperation’. And you know, if she wanted to scuttle the bill, I can’t think of a more effective way to do it, than what she did yesterday in the well. Come to think of it, it’s to the Democrats’ advantage to set things up this way, because in a few days, or weeks when she finally gets around to bringing this up for a vote again, she’s going to have congress critters begging to get screwed over, just so we can get the damn thing passed.
Hume last night: The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has decided a racially-tinged attack by one of its commentators on Sarah Palin was not such a good idea after all.

Welcome, dear reader, to the most intense nightly read in the ‘sphere… The Nightly Ramble…. Lots to cover today, as always and as dictated by events, most of it to do with the bailout which at this point (About 2pm eastern) is looking like it won’t pass. so let’s get to it. Jerry Pournelle: Golden [...]
I’ll have much more on the bailout bill in tonight’s Ramble but for now the thing is moving too fast for me to track. Drudge and Memeorandum seem the best aggragators at the moment.
The bailout bill is due up for a vote today. Lawmakers are supposed to be at it at 8 this morning, and the President is speaking this morning on the subject. I think I’ve found the best indicator possible in terms of the bailout bill being worthy of support: Dennis Kucinich is against it. As [...]
