Gravity

Senator Obama seems to be developing into a deliberative center of gravity, as a number of massive political objects – Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki, French Prime Minister Sarkozy, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, and the White House – have swung inexorably into his orbit. All these august personages, either implicitly or explicitly, embraced his 16-month timeline for withdrawal of US forces from Iraq.

Why are you a Republican?

 TPM Muckraker has the dirt on the Office of Professional Responsibility and Inspector General's report on the politicization of the Justice Department.

Among the stringent Bush-era requirements for employment at DOJ: "What is it about George W. Bush that makes you want to serve him?"

So, Sen. McCain gave an interview with Katie Couric on the CBS Evening News last week. Pretty standard stuff, right?

Sure, except that CBS cut up the tape such that McCain appears to be answering one question, but is really answering another. And because they must have been on a roll, CBS did St. John one better and spliced in heroic still images of him visiting American troops, and footage of American soldiers in action in Iraq.

No, really. Here's video of McCain's bogus answer and the actual interview playing out together in real time, on a split screen.

Short Description: 
Another bad year for Oregon's initiative process?

Oregon's initiative process was supposed to give Oregonians power over special interests but in recent years the opposite seems to be the case. Jo Ann and Dave will talk with Marcy Westerling of the Rural Organizing Project about two Columbia County ballot measures that purport to deal with undocumented workers but which Westerling and others believe is about fueling animosity towards all immigrants in the county. Next, they will talk with organizers from Our Oregon and Rural Organizing Project about statewide ballot measures from Bill Sizemore and Kevin Mannix that could dramatically impact Oregonians should they pass in November.
