Albany, NY– I”m actually just outside the state capitol, within sight of the antenna for WGY, the 50KW flamethrower on 810khz AM… a station that’s heard all over the east coast.

What job pivot?  Even Arianna Huffington is on to Barack Obama a/k/a Dumbo, from News Busters: Now that is really the greatest fear for the White House.

–Schenectady,NY– I’m at a warehouse unloading a truckload of rice. A load of pepsi from the plant near here to a warehouse down on the southern border of NY state, and then home.   What business folks think our prospects are with Obama: Remember we were told that we had to avoid default, because among […]

Scott Walker for President, from George Will, Journal Sentinel: [Wisconsin Governor Scott] Walker’s calm comportment in this crisis is reminiscent of President Ronald Reagan’s during his 1981 stand against the illegal strike by air traffic controllers, and Margaret Thatcher’s in the1984 showdown with the miners’ union over whether unions or Parliament would govern Britain. Walker, […]

Over at Reason this morning,  Peter Suderman suggests something …(Link repaired….Editor) … that I”ve been slowly coming around to, myself. He looks at the on again / off again agreement between the White House and the Democrats in Congress, on what is or is not supportable in a government run ‘option’. (We both know in […]

This morning, James Joyner speaks to… and quotes… a Ezra Klien article: Since obesity has somehow become our unofficial theme this morning, I’d be remiss not to mention Ezra Klein‘s observations about trying to eat healthy at Cheesecake Factory. On first glance, I would have figure the salmon for the lightest entree, followed by the chicken […]

An interesting post at OTB yesterday, caught my eye: The cover story of the current Atlantic (Monthly) is an interesting piece by Nicholas Carr which asks, Is Google Making Us Stupid? It begins with the standard “the Internet is giving us short attention spans” meme but eventually gives us much more than that. Over the […]

Noted a resturant review over the weekend in the New York Times… and wouldn’t have said much at all, except that it got so bad with it’s left-leaning, that even left leaner, Ezra Klein can’t stand it anymore.  Yes, that’s really saying something.

The Democratic […]

Good move, or bad move, Barack Obama knows where to attack the Clinton’s in the massive, and over inflated, egos.   B.J. Clinton is riled over Obama’s Reagan comments, Ezra Klein, American Prospect: Bill Clinton’s take on this was that Obama “said President Reagan was the engine of innovation and did more, had a more lasting […]

In thinking on the events of last night, I’ve come to the conclusion that the left is really worried about Hillary Clinton winning the nomination. I mean, REALLY worried. The usual Hillary Clinton cheering sections, such a Ezra Klein, are royally PISSED at Tim Russert. So is Paul Waldman. The rest, not so much, though […]
