I'VE GOT A THEORY. I'm traveling and haven't been doing my normal quotient of blog reading, so maybe others have said this. But: How sure are we that this 1984-Hillary ad was made by an Obama "supporter"? Because when I saw it, my immediate reaction was that it was made by a winger. It's conservatives who have this Orwellian view of HRC -- they think she wants the state to control everything, she wants to take away your babies so they can be raised in state orphanages where the party line will be piped through the sound system, and so forth.
I bet that when David Obey lost his temper last week, he was thinking in part of a number (politicians are always thinking of numbers) that I haven't seen at all in the press during these discussions about what the Democrats should do on Iraq.
In the hours of television I watched in the wake of the Scooter Libby verdict Tuesday, I found this exchange, between MSNBC host Tucker Carlson and A.B. Stoddard of The Hill, the most interesting (Stoddard, a reporter, was paired with former RNC spokesman Jim Dyke -- balance, baby!):
Carlson: Will there be real Democratic investigations, led by Congress, into the genesis of this war and will they result in action?
