Topping



When is it appropriate to identify a lifelong asshole as simply an asshole? (His wife's career that's tied to the Vice President aside, of course.) "The reaction of some of Mr. Clinton’s allies [to Bill Richardson's endorsement of Barack Obama] suggests that might have been a wise decision. “An act of betrayal,” said James Carville, an adviser to Mrs. Clinton and a friend of Mr. Clinton. “Mr. Richardson’s endorsement came right around the anniversary of the day when Judas sold out for 30 pieces of silver, so I think the timing is appropriate, if ironic,” Mr. Carville said, referring to Holy Week." Jesus wept.

Matters of perception


Politicians can disappoint. Ordinary people can surprise. My brother has Down syndrome. He's heavily caught up in the current political race. We are both Philadelphia natives. I'd like to share with you his very brief but very moving endorsement of Barack Obama. I believe this is newsworthy because my brother, Dan is symbolic. His judgement of character is just as valuable as the most famous or respected individuals currently receiving press for endorsing a candidate. Please allow his honest voice to be heard... My older brother has always been an excellent judge of character... This interview is something Dan has asking me to shoot for a few days now... He has a lot to say, just difficulty expressing it. He insisted I subtitle his words saying, "I want to be understood" and who among us doesn't want to be understood?

John McCain establishes incontrovertible proof once again that Iran and Al Qaeda are the same thing


An earlier version of this talking point: "Today in Iraq, America and our allies stand on the precipice of winning a major victory against radical Islamic extremism. The security gains over the past year have been dramatic and undeniable. Al Qaeda and Shia extremists -- with support from external powers such as Iran -- are on the run but not defeated."

Hilary Clinton auditions to be John McCain's running mate


Rachel Maddow: "That's what you say when you want to be John McCain's Vice Presidential choice. That's not what you say when you are trying to become the democratic nominee for president." Keith Olbermann: "Unbelievable." Clinton's statement on behalf of McCain: "I think you'll be able to imagine many things Senator McCain will be able to say," she said. "He’s never been the president, but he will put forth his lifetime of experience. I will put forth my lifetime of experience. Senator Obama will put forth a speech he made in 2002."
