Dkos, Atrios, Americablog

AmericaBlog, Atrios, and Kos all got shout-outs on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.  I'm a comedian.  I comment at all these sites.  This could get me a job.

Mark at United Left has video of the show.

why didn't they say

Congrads, guys!

My gut said this would happen

I had a feeling during the primaries that this was going to happen sooner rather than later if the Governor were to become the nominee or something of that nature.

The Republican Jewish Coalition is already smearing the Governor Dean, the newly elected chairman of the Democratic Party.  They have purchased advertisements in several Jewish newspapers featuring some bad pictures.

The remarks caused a heated debate between Gov. Dean and Sen. Lieberman during the primary debates.

I have the original NJDC email containing quotes from the Jewish community.  The text of that email is no longer online.

Buck Humphrey for Senate 2006

From KSTP Eyewitness News:
On the DFL side, activist Buck Humphrey said he's not ruling out a bid for the U.S. Senate.

The grandson of the late Vice President Hubert Humphrey and the son of former state Attorney General Skip Humphrey first said he wasn't interested in joining a growing list of candidates seeking the party nomination. But Buck Humphrey said later that he wouldn't rule out running for the open Senate seat.

Other potential DFL candidates include Minneapolis lawyer Mike Ciresi, Senate Majority Leader Dean Johnson of Willmar, state Senator Steve Kelley of Hopkins, former Congressman Bill Luther, Hennepin County Attorney Amy Klobuchar, and former public development official Rebecca Yanisch.

Salazar defending Gonzales

Al Gonzales has only one Democrat in favor of him.

Ken Salazar appears to be defending Al Gonzales and being bashed in the blogosphere for indirectly supporting Torture.

Senator Salazar ran as a moderate Democrat, but far more conservative than my tastes

Gov. Howard Dean on Republicans

From my blog: The Kentucky Democrat:
This is not the way I want my party run.  I believe in a big tent.  I want to find common ground with Republicans.  I disagree politically with them but, in the end, we are still Americans and need to get along together.  This was in the New York Daily News:
"I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for, but I admire their discipline and their organization," the failed presidential hopeful told the crowd at the Roosevelt Hotel, where he and six other candidates spoke at the final DNC forum before the Feb. 12 vote for chairman.

But Dean said the Democrats should not change their beliefs to be "Republican lite."

I am a moderate-to-liberal Democrat and I paid my $25 to the DLC.  However, I hate being labeled Republican-lite.  Just the other day, I was labeled a neo-conservative for being pro-Israel.  Do you not see what Bush is doing?  Because he supports Israel, I get labeled a neo-conservative?!?  That's not fair to me and any other Jewish Democrat.

Out of the Fainthearted Faction

Excellent. Ford's out too--Chris

It looks as if Senator Bayh is out of the fainthearted faction.  I am relieved at this myself.  I missed the show this morning so I was glad that Josh blogged about it.

Anyway, I have posted some of my comments below the split.  I for one had figured he would oppose efforts to privatize social security after seeing the poll that all Democrats were opposed to the President's plan.

Tribute to Johnny

I think this TV guide cover says it all:

Is this how we want our party run?

A while back, I posted an entry on the results of the Kentucky Democratic Party's choice for State Party Chairman.  A lot went down at the meeting and it is messy.  Click read more to see what the saddening news is.  It is a testament to the mess that politics can be and why we should not name leaders that have no idea how to run things or accept bribes in return for voting the way that they do.
