A Job For Hillary

Plus--Shorter summer.

Doesn't this Matt Stoller person realize such talk only plays into the hands of the GOPs? Let's purge him! [Is Uranus in the right position?--ed So cheap.] Via Blogometer12:15 A.M.

Barnes' Chinatown: Weekly Standard''sFred Barnes says Republicans can win the midterms by stressing anti-terrorist security, Iran, "death tax reduction," and judges.** ... Hmm. It seems like there's an issue is mising from that list. ... I'll think of it in a second. ... Oh, right--didn't Barnes write just a few months ago that the GOPs were doomed if they didn't pass an immigration bill? ("Failure to pass a bill would bring on defeat.") They didn't pass it, even though a few months earlier Barnes had written that  

an immigration bill appears likely (but not certain) to pass when Congress returns from its Easter recess on April 24

No wonder he doesn't want to talk about the subject. ...

**--Judicial confirmation controversies are supposed to turn out the GOP base. It still seems to me that opposition to Bush's (and Barnes')  immigration bill has at least as much base-mobilizing potential. ... 1:35 P.M.

Nobody covers Lindsay Lohan like kausfiles! Am I crazy, or is 20 year-old Lindsay Lohan starting to look like Sally Field? And not the 1970s Sally Field neither. More the '90s. ... 12:50 A.M.

The last Times person to blog on politics, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Michael Hiltzik, soon revealed his hyperpartisanship behind the Times' veil of seeming objectivity ... [Emph. added]

Hiltzik, remember, had previously done straight reporting for the Times--covering the 1996 Republican presidential campaign, for example, and the state energy crisis. He gets a blog and all of a sudden we learn he's really a near-hysterical Kosier-than-thou conservative-basher no more "objective" about anything than Ann Coulter. ... P.S.: Bradley notes that the LAT's remaining allegedly objective political reporters will soon start blogging. Will any of them be non-Democrats at heart? Or will they simply be Dems told to hide their politics better than the excitable Hiltzik did? 12:32 A.M.

"[T]he fact that I'm going to become Speaker ..." Is that how Nancy Pelosi should be talking  at this point? .. P.S.: Shouldn't TIME have at least brought up Pelosi's embarrassing  Hastings-for-Harman pickle12:27 A.M.
