Now that even the Democratic presidential frontrunners are endorsing keeping troops in Iraq, the doves have lost. But that doesn’t mean the issue is anywhere near settled.
It’s the franking privilege, stupid. Also, the unions are stymied over endorsements, until they remember the Dodd loophole. Finally, Mike Huckabee’s diet plan can work for anybody, it just needs to be required by law.
Mike Huckabee’s victory lap is more like a victory slap. Also, Barack Obama for Taliban Information Minister! And Ted Stevens is earmarked for an indictment.
Democratic Structure: Promise the world. Republican Structure: Quit while you’re not ahead. And the New Hampshire primaries are likely to include time machines in the next go-round.
Barack Obama, you silly war hawk you. Rupert Murdoch’s acquisition gets criticism from the New York Times. And liberal bloggers are all about free speech — keeping it to themselves, that is.
Hillary’s the real man when it comes to foreign policy. Joe Biden’s got a thing about guns, but it’s not a clue. And is Fred Thompson’s leaky ship seaworthy?
Don Young: Representative of Alaska, or Scrooge McDuck? Jack Murtha’s a big fan of the Department of Creative Energy, what with all the creative ways Congress is spending money. And be sure to visit the Rangel Center for Public Service — because selflessness is a virtue.
How to win friends and become a key public official. But just don’t acquire a hooker habit. And one Nobel Peace Prize winner teaches us how to kill someone. Nonviolently, of course.
McCain is getting thrifty with his money, while Obama is eyeing the not-Hillary vote (and cutting his own hair). Meanwhile, Gore is leaving a big carbon footprint.
Apparently, Brownback voted for the immigration bill before he voted against it. Really.
Bloomberg has a big truth problem, but not as big as a Giuliani’s little friend in South Carolina. And faced with talk radio critics, Hillary and Nancy surmise that there ought to be a law…
Speaker Pelosi is going to have to fire her travel agent. Meanwhile, Democrats are showing America how to get things done, and America is crying “stop!” And somebody get Mike Gravel a translator.
Mike Huckabee for Education Secretary, Kucinich for Osama’s executioner, and Bono for an appointment with Canadian PM Steve Harper’s secretary.
This weekly roundup notes Fred Thompson’s innovative (read: lazy) run for President, Justice Ginsburg’s newfound appreciation for legislation, and a few people having the nerve to walk into America.
John Tabin rounds up notable political stories of the week.
The Republicans weren’t the only ones debating last night.
Don Imus’s firing gives Sen. Obama something ridiculous to say, and Harry Reid is a pretty forgetful senator.
The Republicans are reticent, so the Democrats are the ones bringing in the cash. Also, Speaker Pelosi brokers a middle east peace deal — in her mind. Finally, Zell is the belle of the ball now that he purchased the Tribune company.
Hillary’s derailing the freight-train momentum of her own campaign, so why worry?
Ann Coulter’s outrageous approach to politics has been widely criticized, but what does it mean for conservatives?
