It was noted on Rush's show Monday - at the bottom of the 12 o'clock hour the man who held one of Hillary Clinton's New Hampshire campaign offices hostage on Friday, Leeland Eisenberg, contacted CNN three times attempting to get the NY Senator on the phone with him.
The touch of satire easily added to this aspect of the event was that the disturbed man's reasoning for looking to the network seems quite understandable in light of their recent series of mishaps relating to Mrs. Clinton.
Hugo Chavez is defeated in his measure to rewrite Venezuela's constitution, which would have allowed him to run for office again in 2012, at the completion of his current term. The voting's margin was about as close as it could possibly get - 51% to 49%. It would be unwise, however, to believe this is the last we've heard of the dictator's attempts at remaining in power past 2012.
My guess would be that within the next couple of years he puts the issue back up for vote again this, of course, after additional measures are taken to allow his government to control the media, silence opposition and generate fear in those that disagree with him and his policies.
If need be, the measure will be on the ballot until it passes. If - perhaps when - it does pass, the people of Venezuela will never see that opportunity again to voice opposition to the man.
Mitt Romney has announced his is planning on giving a speech to explain his faith to the American people. The speech will be given on Thursday titled "Faith in America" at the George Bush Presidential Library.
I'm torn on this decision. While, I do look forward to the former governor being given the stage to speak on an issue he obviously holds in highest regard, I am a little disappointed that it is seemingly a necessity for him to do so. All indications are that it will be advantageous for him to make "the speech". I've just felt he has done very well, thus far, reflecting on his faith when brought up in context of individual issues and individual questions on the trail.
Governor Romney rarely disappoints when given a forum to express his values and ideas I doubt Thursday will be any different.
It seems what we're seeing over in the democrat race for the White House is exactly what happens when an assembly of government officials who legislate and govern without any sense of political compass or set values are transformed into even worse Politicians, in a run for office, who campaign with even less a sense of political compass or set values.
What is spoken by the politicians seems to be dependent upon which zip code they find themselves in or what specific group of supporters entail the audience of the moment. What the candidates have not yet seemed to grasp is that in this day and age, especially in such a pivotal election, there is always a documentation of what is said from one day to the next, one stump speech to the next.
As well documented, one candidate on (D) side has been at the biggest disadvantage in this regard.
