According to right wing talkers/news outlets, Obama is a socialist and that’s bad. Unfortunately, the real socialists are the Republicans.read more | digg story ...

A couple of McCain higher-ups have told me that Palin simply knew nothing about national and international issues. Which meant, as one such adviser said to me, “Letting Sarah be Sarah may not be such a good thing.” It’s a grim choice, apparently it came down to whether to make Palin look like a scripted robot or an unscripted ignoramous. read more | digg story ...

DOWN LATE, THE JETS AND BRETT PULL IT OUTby TJ Rosenthal for Football Reporters Online The Jets saved their season by pulling out a last minute win against what was on paper, an undermanned KC Chiefs team Sunday.  While former Jet and now Miami Dolphin signal caller Chad Pennington was throwing for 300 yards against the first place Bills, Favre was at times throwing science experiments into the air, just to see what would happen. What happened as a result was a game that was too close for comfort.  None of his three interceptions were...

The Chicago Defender, one of the nation’s oldest African American publications, posits that should Obama win the White House, IL Governor Blagojevich should appoint Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. as the successor to his Senate seat. Congressman Jackson has a sterling Congressional record and would, among other things, maintain an African American seat in the Senate. He has also worked tirelessly to get Senator Obama elected. For his part, Congressman Jackson says that it’s too early to discuss such matters and continues...
