...spanning the globe...so you don't have to
From 'round the sphere today...
Arlen Specter says he'll NOT vote for card check, which leaves the Dems at probably 59 votes for cloture (of a needed 60) to bring it up for a vote. Could the liklihood he'll have a stiff primary challenge from Pat Toomey next year have anything to do with his sudden change of heart? Nahhh.
Interesting column over at NextRight re: the future of mobile messaging and what it might mean for political get-out-the-vote operations.
Mark Steyn has a good column over at National Review calling this upcoming generation "The Brokest Generation"...suggesting kids are the ultimate credit market...and we're all pre-approved! (And how many of the new voters in that age group voted for "The One"?)
In her most recent fiscal disclosure form, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin points out that her family now has over half a million dollars in debt due to attorney's fees they've incurred fending off bogus ethics charges...filed by liberals who are essentially trying to harass her into bankruptcy.
There seem to be at least a few cracks developing in how the media is covering the Bamster now. Recently such liberal stalwarts as Eleanor Clift and Paul Krugman have begun to question The One. Even the AP made reference to his overuse of tele-prompters. (Bill Bennet chimes in here)
An AIG exec calls it quites...and pens an open letter in the NYT telling everyone why.
Yet ANOTHER nominee to the Treasury Department has said "thanks, but not thanks" and dropped out. Which makes you wonder what these guys are seeing that we don't... As in, they see a coming disaster and don't want to be part of the agency that will take the blame, (might hurt future biz prospects).
