We’re in all kinds of meetings this morning. So entertain yourself on this slowest of news days and final day of 2008. In other news, go see Slumdog Millionaire. It’s the best movie we’ve seen all year.
Ruh ro! Harsh words for Senator Mitch McConnell. “Mitch McConnell is not my friend. He is not a friend to my family, co-workers, community or state. And even though he supposedly attends the same church I do, I consider him to be a Judas.” [Point Taken]
Speaking of Mitch, check this bit out from Talking Points Memo: “Mitch McConnell and his racist, sexist, xenophobic and homophobic minions want to destroy the United States of America, at least the part left over after 8 years of the Boy Blunder and Dr. Doom.” [TPM]
David Hawpe has some fancy anonymous “handicapper” who says Greg Stumbo will beat Jody Richards. Unfortunately for the reader, Hawpe doesn’t indicate that his handicapper is probably Larry Clark or one of Greg’s lobbyist pals. There’s not a soul in the House who thinks Greg has a shot. Not even Greg’s longtime friends like Jerry Lundergan think he can win. End of story. [C-J]
