No more Dopes from Hope, from Allah Pundit, Hot Air :
Yeah, granted, it’s practically home-field advantage for a former governor of Arkansas, but it’s also evidence of Huck’s abiding strength in the south even as Palin’s national profile expands. How’s this for a three-way race: Mitt captures the northeast, Huck takes dixie, and Sarahcuda uses her Jacksonian cred to grab the plains states. And then everything comes down to … California.
No thanks to the Huckadope. I have may fill of liberals.

Negotiations Without Preconditions for Iran, But Not Republicans
Barack Obama was steadfast during the campaign and after his election in his willingness to enter into negotiations with Iran without preconditions.
But Obama is not willing to enter into health care negotiations with Republicans without preconditions.
Snowmentary, from Moe Lane :
I’m still digging out from 3 feet’s worth of RFK Jr’s ‘anemic winter’ …
…so people will understand that I’m about as interested as David Freddoso in being overly nice in pointing out his past bloviating. My back isn’t actually killing me, right now, but that’s only because I was being very, very careful about removing all that anemic winter from the car. I’m going to be forty in a couple of months; I don’t bounce back from straining myself over anemic winters like I used to.

WASHINGTON (AP ) – Even the White House’s top spokesman is getting in on the act of mocking former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin for looking to talking points written on her palm during a speech to “tea party” activists.Robert Gibbs showed the words “hope” and “change” on his hand as he started his daily briefing with reporters on Tuesday.
Many in the room, where President Barack Obama had spoken just moments before about the need for bipartisanship, groaned at the political shot.

Leaving aside its lameness â€” stepping on the President’s message, and demonstrating, once again, that Robert Gibbs is never intentionally funny â€” it really seems to me that bringing up the whole “hope and change” schtick nowadays isn’t doing much for the White House, but rather is simply reminding people of how the original promise of this Administration has failed to bear fruit.
Hint BO, next time don’t send your missus out to do your job, from ABC News :
Michelle Obama defended her husband against some of his most vocal critics, saying President Obama did a “phenomenal” job this year and that change is a long-term process.
The first lady talks about her nationwide campaign called “Let’s Move.”
“I think my husband has done a phenomenal job staying on course, looking his critics in the eye, coming up with clear solutions against staying the course,”
