We know why NMA selected her for this treatment. It is because watching our media, NMA determined she must be a big story. The real question – Why is she such a big story here? Why is she getting so much new and old media attention that she pops up on the NMA meme radarscope?

Updating “10 in 10″ on 10-10-10 at 10:10

By mw | Related entries in Congress, News, Politics, Polls, Senate

What better day and time to update our “10 in 10? election prognostications? Last we checked in – Nate Silver (our polling analyst of choice) showed that 9 of the 10 seats most likely to change parties were all held by Democrats and he was forecasting a net 6-7 seat Republican gain in the Senate. One month later, with less than a month to go – 10 of the top 10 seats most likely to change parties are all held by Democrats and Nate is forecasting an 8-9 seat gain by the GOP. So – despite the nomination of a GOP clown candidate in Delaware (virtually guaranteeing a Democratic victory in that state) the odds of a GOP Senate takeover continue to improve.

72 Hour Transparency Call Is Right For Any Bill

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Congress, Democrats, Health Care, Transparency

Regardless of what you think about the current health care legislation being debated on Capitol Hill, being able to read it before it goes to the floor for a vote is the right thing to do and I’m glad to see a Senator from Missouri calling for it. But will the Dems listen? From Politico: […]

Why 2010 Will Not Be Like 1994

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Congress, Democrats, Polls, Republicans

It’s pretty easy…the only people that voters like less than Congressional Democrats and Congressional Republicans. Add in the facts that Republicans have no coherent plan, no definitive leadership and are allowing right wing pundits to organize and promote this Tea Party movement and you have a reality where Dems might actually pick up seats next […]

To Dream The (Im)Possible Health Care Reform Dream

By mw | Related entries in Congress, Fiscal Responsibility, Health Care, Ideas

Justin Gardner (Donk Quixote) and Mike Wallach (Phanto), endeavor to tilt at windmills (With apologies to Miguel de Cervantes). Justin is a registered Democrat, considers himself an independent but views the world from the left side of the political spectrum. Mike most recently registered as a Republican, but considers himself primarily a fiscal conservative, deficit hawk, and a libertarian leaning independent. They find common ground in the Health Care Reform debate.
