Howard Wolfson Has Been Traded To Japan

  • What I'm Watching/Listening To/Reading:
    • Finished the miniseries of "The Corner". It becomes more and more moving as it goes on and the last few minutes are interviews with the actual people from the book. Incredibly powerful.
    • Fun fact from yesterday's "Meet The Press": Dick Durban and Chuck Schumer share a house in D.C. Durban makes his bed, Schumer does not.
  • Random Thoughts/Links:
    • This is the greatest practical joke I've seen in a long time. If you're not a Phillies fan, you have to at least like them a little bit now.
    • You know, this LeBron kid is pretty good. Pretty, pretty good.
  • Daily Rant:
    • So Howard Wolfson says that Obama is guilty of plagiarism for using some of Mass. Gov. Deval Patrick's words in his speeches. Here's an article from the Boston Globe where Obama and Patrick talked about sharing language. FROM APRIL 16, 2007!!! So nice job, Clinton campaign. Plus, ouch, MSNBC reports that Hillary has twice used words from Bill Clinton speeches and John Edwards debate responses this year in her speeches without attribution. Hillary & Co. (who may not, in fact, be Ready On Day One with the campaign management skills she's shown), deal with it! Get used to those words -- I have a feeling you'll be hearing them again on March 5 considering how unfavorable the Texas delegate rules are to her.
