Political bits - "What up?"

(AP) It's a little complicated, but Obama's meeting with Spanish PM Zapatero today is layered with meaning. If you'll remember, Zapatero came to power after the complicated politics around the Madrid bombings and Iraq. Shortly after coming to power, Zapatero rather quickly pulled out of Iraq and served as a European voice against Buch policies. Since that time, George Bush very publicly refused to meet with him, so Obama's meeting today is another symbolic world stage "turning of the page."

(Politico) Price-Waterhouse can't run away fast enough from that propagandist "report" they provided for the insurance industry.

(DMRegiuster) Fears in Iowa that the increasingly "Christian" tilt among Republican caucusgoers may end up making that state's early "primary" less important (and less profitable.)

(Politico) The NRCC (Repub Congressional Committee) links to an altered video of Hitler praising Nancy Pelosi.

And, For some reason, I find it incredibly funny that Michael Steele's new RNC blog is titled "What up?"


  • The Republican party (NRC, NRCC, etc) is officially treading in fringe-land. How many times can you go to the Hitler/Fascist/Socialist bucket before you lose not only impact, but credibility and relevance?

    Well, with today's corporate media you'll they'll at least be given 65% of the air... because that's what balance is all about.

  • I agree, but I linked this because I think it's a step beyond shouting Hitler.

    Even the Willie Horton ad didn't have willie Horton endorsing.

  • The Xtian Right in Iowa is well entrenched. Remember Pat Robertson won the caucus in 1988. They've been batshiite crazy for 21 years now.

  • The article was saying that the rest of them might just concede it to Huckabee. If the rest don't come, it's a huge state loss of money attention, and influence.
