Obama Hitting Homeruns All The Back to the USA

The Nuri al-Maliki not-an-endorsement endorsement of Senator Obama is resonating. Hugely. Josh Marshall at The Talking Points Memo: My first instinct is always to try not to overstate the impact of momentary developments. But I don’t think it’s enough to say this is a huge development. It’s huger than that. In a stroke, I think, al Maliki has cut McCain […]

Who Said THAT??? – Muddlespeak Edition

Today’s edition of “Who Said THAT???!” is an amazing example of using a LOT of words to say pretty much nothing at all. If you can figure it out, please let me know.

So, Can We Leave Now?

The Prime Minister of Iraq, Nuri al-Maliki, has more or less endorsed Senator Obama’s timetable for leaving Iraq in Germany’s Spiegel newspaper: “SPIEGEL: Would you hazard a prediction as to when most of the US troops will finally leave Iraq?

Nice Job, Ace

Jesus. And this guy claims he has good judgment??? McCain Breaches Security by Revealing Obama’s Trip Details. Money quote from a “knowledgeable insider”: If it is true that Obama is going to Iraq this weekend, it is a very serious mistake for McCain to have disclosed it publically. Even for run-of-the-mill CODELs the military gives guidance like, “Please strongly discourage […]

Obama: Country Second (or Third…?)

And so it begins: What’s got me most impressed is that Barack Obama has better judgment and a keener sense of what the outcome of our foreign policy would be/will be than McCain who has walked down a market square in Baghdad will a full military escort, attack helicopters, yada yada yada.

The Republican Hypocrisy Nation

I love this. All of it. It’s such blatant hypocrisy that it just makes you laugh and laugh and laugh. Where to start… Well, first, the Bush administration is now in diplomacy mode with Iran.

Rachel Maddow: Rising Star

This makes me very, very happy: For clues about who might be next to get a show on MSNBC, viewers need not have looked further than “Countdown” earlier this month. For eight nights beginning just before the Fourth of July, Rachel Maddow, the host of a program on Air America, the liberal talk-radio network, served as a substitute for the […]

Who Said THAT???! – Predicting the Future Edition

This edition of “Who Said THAT???!” features a bit of prescient thought. The person who said this said it in October 2002, six months before the commencement of the “war” in Iraq. “So for those of us who seek a more just and secure world for our children, let us send a clear message to the President today. You want […]
