Not that it matters. Just slowly starting off touring the political sites. Not that it matters… [sigh] but I landed at this first.. at The Page:
Curtain Rises on the Blago Trial
Set to appear Monday on “Good Morning America,”" The View” and “Larry King Live.”
Told the “Today” show that his trial is “rigged” and “fixed,” and that he draws comfort by thinking of Gandhi, Mandela and Martin Luther King.
Not that it matters, as we all know Obama is from Honolulu and Jakarta. As I began the silly online perambulations, TV helpfully assisted with telling the Blago stories… with a cut from Daley being asked about Blago. His only answer was to “cuck coo” a few times. He does it well. Which might mean something. I guess.
Feingold has a nice idea (that I don’t see a bi partisan push back from governors going for) that out of cycle empty senate seats must be resolved by election, but hahahahahaha it barely scratches the surface of our political problems.
As for the rest, catching MTP on a repeat, Summers is surely on the right track, this was nearly the first out of his mouth.
DR. SUMMERS: I’m telling him he’s inherited an extraordinarily difficult situation: the worst economy since the second World War, a financial system that’s got very serious problems, government budget deficits he’s inheriting of a trillion dollars, an entitlement situation that’s three times the burden that it was in the year 2000. He’s inheriting an extraordinarily difficult situation in the domestic economy, in the global economy; the kind of situation that requires the types of decisive action he’s been working with Congress to produce.
Wars? Anyone care to mention the wars? The COST of the wars?
Oh look! Beyonce is serenading the Prom King and Queen… Look over there! At last… at last…
Things are in bad shape.
I do wonder what is to become of us.
