UPDATE (2/09): Joshua DuBois has officially been appointed to lead President Obama's Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. From the pr...
The sage Todd Gitlin urges us to voice our complaint and move on. But moving on doesn't move me. I want my transcendent moment. First, it seems, I'll have to transcend my damn self.
Maybe we are not interested in learning this stuff, or maybe TV is just the wrong medium for transmitting serious information.
Over at the Cato Institute's blog, Jim Harper argues that McCain's "I'll follow bin Laden to the Gates Of Hell" rhetoric at the Saddleback Forum gave ...
Obama personally hammered this point in a New Mexico town hall this week -- the campaign is now circulating a 40-second clip of Obama ridiculing McCain's elitism.
If McCain was indeed in an automobile, if he was not in a "cone of silence", how will we ever know whether he cheated, perhaps with the help of staff?
