McKay vs. McDerm ...

Not a good thing for the demo party. McKay could well win. McDerm ought to announce he is not going to run before something like this happens.


sparky, I just read below where you were wondering about annoying Jill on The Young Turks. I'm putting it here so you'll see. Yes, she is gone. The only time she pops up is when one of the guys can't make it and they can't get anyone else to fill in, which has been only once in the longest time. I listen to them every day. It's much better without her.



I know that McKay was wronged by The Decider and his crew but he was still appointed in the first place by them. Seems to me that he must still be a republican with republican ideas. Just because he doesn't get along with the current bunch doesn't make him a saint or a Democrat.



"Just because he doesn't get along with the current bunch doesn't make him a saint or a Democrat."

True, but is it possible that he still could likely be saved :)


The office won't save him, Duf...he must save the office. If he's as liberal as Bla'M claims, he may be a fresh replacemnet for lefty but "past pull date" (love that line, Bla'M) McD. Great point, Jew...


Even if the Republicans put up a decent moderate candidate in the Seventh District, McDermott (or almost any Democrat to the left of Dixy Lee Ray) will get at least 60% of the vote. Probably more. In today's political environment, there is no way the voters in this district would let it go to the R's.

That said, it would be great to see the Republican party mount a (sacrificial) candidate who could force Jim McD to conduct a campaign on real issues, raher than just coasting into yet another term.


Agree, Rev. Most of us on the far left don't agree with the 5-4 decision. It is another assault on free speech which is becoming par for the course.

Look what's going on regarding the internet and Iraq: "It seems their primary goal is to keep people programmed." (from a Salem-News editorial)

When the military says their security lines are compromised, this was the writer's response: The military is not seeing that type of security threat, if soldiers watched MTV on the secured lines they would quickly be busted.

The right as it currently administers government can only operate in secrecy and must do everything it can to protect that secrecy. I find it interesting that the right would choose to attack free speech rather than own up to the slimy and unethical behavior of Gingrich.


Thanks robin...yay!! I know Im not the only one who didnt care for her....
My favorite is Ben Mankowitz..interesting to see him on the weekends on Turner Classic Movies!


Sparky, I've found that I really like Ben and Cenk together because they compliment each other well. When they have a fill in host, I don't usually like it as much unless the fill in has sort of the personality of which ever one they are filling in for. :)

I would love to see Ben on TCM but we don't have that station. I hate cable boxes. :)



oh you even have to have DIGITAL cable to get Ben on TV....Im a sucker for movies, especially old ones, and I really do get my money's worth having TCM and HBO and another movie station wayyyy up on the dial whose name I cant remember at the moment...


Oh, I have digital cable and I forget I can watch them there. I'm such a sucker for podcasts. I love being able to do two things at once. Seems like I'm not really wasting quite so much time if I'm cleaning or gardening while I'm listening. I'm up to about 3 to 5 podcasts a day now that I'm unemployed for a bit.
These three every day. No idea who I like the best.
The Young Turks
Rachel Maddow
Stephanie Miller

These two most days:
Randi Rhodes



The lovely and gracious (&funny)Ms Stephanie Miller would get my vote.


Remember when Webb used to play tapes of John Ashcroft singing those goofball songs he wrote in that vibrato voice, and laugh at him? I thought along wih Webb that he was just another of W's bornagain Christian fascists. However the news story is now coming out about the time when evil Bush flunkies, henchmen and trolls were coming to his hospital room, where he lying severely ill, to try to browbeat and force him into signing Bush'es illegal surveillance provision into law. He refused to sign it. Kudos to you, Ashcroft. Like Carl Jeffers said- I now have a newfound respect for Ashcroft, goofball songs and all.


T008 Yes I agree...I really misjudged AG Gonzales in the beginning by thinking he was innocent and deserved a break. NOT ANY MORE...that was the capper for me...this guy needs to be gone BIG TIME...and some how, some way we need to get Rove under oath.


Who is in pix? Is that Postman on left, and goldy on right?


Gonzo is part of the Bush 'tribe' from Texas and I expect he is loyal to the gills. If I were a betting man, I would say Gonzo is buying the administration time with his long drawn out antics and non-answers. I never thought I would see the day that somebody made Ashcroft look near saintly in comparison.

Robin...same here re: podcasts. I love putting them on the ol iPod and doing some gardening, the newest hobby the wife doesn't understand, along with golf.


CPP3: gardening and golf, what's your secret how do you get away with the latter...by doing the former? ha...have to 'earn' it, eh - that's the way it is with my partner.


DefCon1. Cue me some Iggy Pop, we're going in
