Sunday Replay 25.5.2010 FactCheck
This Sunday’s collection of morning talkfests produced a few points worth noting, including distortions of Rand Paul’s use of the term "un-American," a bit of cherry-picking on job growth numbers under President Obama, a false accusation that oil companies are making "record profits," and misleading innuendo that the White House has been slow to respond [...]

Linda Stamper Boyne: Suddenly, it's so 30 years ago 24.5.2010 Vail Colorado: Business
I had a little problem writing this week. None of my topic ideas were panning out. So in search of yet another idea, I hit "Google" on my favorites bar and what to my wondering eyes should appear but a Google doodle of PAC-MAN! How fabulous! It was there to celebrate the game's 30th anniversary. PAC-MAN was invented 30 years ago? But it seems like just yesterday that the Stamper girls were hanging out in the arcade at Pony Village Mall playing PAC-MAN and Space Invaders. As I was pondering the passage of time, suddenly I heard those all-to-familiar sounds signaling the beginning of the game! Are you serious? I get to play? This is awesome! Or in the vernacular of that era, this is awesome! After 24 hours of somewhat addictive play, and after ...

Money Isn't Everything 23.5.2010 The Hotline

Oh, the irony.

Last spring, the NRCC spent $552K on befhalf of NY Assemb. Jim Tedisco (R), and the National Republican Trust PAC spent an additional $820K. Rep. Scott Murphy (D) won that race.

This fall, the NRCC spent $897K on the confused race to replace Army Sec. John McHugh in NY 23. Rep. Bill Owens (D) beat a GOPer and a Conservative Party candidate.

Over the last few months, the DCCC spent $314K beating up Honolulu City Councilor Charles Djou (R), before pulling out earlier this month. Last night, Djou won 40% of the vote against 2 Dems to win ex-Rep. Neil Abercrombie's (D-HI) seat.

The NRCC's total spending in the HI 01 race: $0.

Travel to Cuba Legislation Mired by Scandal, Fierce Opposition 22.5.2010 Truthout - All Articles

In 1963, following heightened tensions in the aftermath of the Cuban Missile Crisis, President Kennedy imposed the first travel restrictions on American citizens desiring to travel to Cuba. After years of gridlock regarding the subject courtesy of Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) and her ideological kinsman from the ultra-conservative Cuban American National Foundation, a growing number of U.S. members of Congress have consistently introduced legislation in an attempt to remove long-held constraints on U.S. citizens’ freedom to travel.

Dueling Headlines 22.5.2010 PowerLine
The Hill reports that Washington Democrats see things going their way, and want to put the pedal to the metal: Sensing momentum, Senate Dems don't want to ease up. Sure, that makes sense. They want to drive their approval rating down into single digits by passing cap-and-tax, the Union Thug Empowerment Act, and so on. Meanwhile, the smart money--such as it is--goes elsewhere.
