Farewell, Billmon? - Shadowproof

Farewell, Billmon? - Shadowproof

Looks like somebody made a New Year's resolution that will make us all a little sad.  The deservedly legendary Billmon at the Whiskey Bar late last night.Granted, he's made some cryptic/melodramatic exits before that (thankfully) turned out to be temporary, but suggests that Billmon has given the matter a lot of consideration:I've been spending some of my spare time these past few weeks rummaging around in the Whiskey Bar archives, trying to decide what, if any of it, is worth keeping and what could just as well be consigned to the electronic garbage can.And so he left in that post a...

Late Night: So... Is That Really a Reconciliation Sidecar in Your Pocket, or Are You Just Happy to See Me? - Shadowproof

Late Night: So... Is That Really a Reconciliation Sidecar in Your Pocket, or Are You Just Happy to See Me? - Shadowproof

Stand back, ladies and gentlemen, it appears that the fight for… um, whatever… is starting.  Appearing at a photo op town-hall meeting with Sen. Harry Reid in Nevada today, President Obama “” for passing a healthcare reform bill — and for the so-called summit with Republican and Democratic members of Congress next week.As out two weeks ago, a key reason for announcing the summit was to provide “a delaying tactic… while Congressional Democrats wheel and deal furiously behind the scenes,” giving Obama the appearance of taking the political initiative while Pelosi, Reid, et al. were busy...

Libby Live: Libby Grand Jury Testimony, Five - Shadowproof

Libby Live: Libby Grand Jury Testimony, Five - Shadowproof

HiMore?  You want more Libby trial live-blogging?  Haven't you already been on this ride enough times today?  Oh, very well, step this way and climb on board… A further reminder about these posts… as Marcy/emptywheel was fond of saying, we are not court reporters.  Even though an exchange may look like verbatim dialogue, what I'm usually doing is boiling down a two-sentence question and a four-sentence answer (with plenty of false starts) into a short sentence each — the gist of each question and each answer, with any key phrases or pauses included as best I...

Happy Thanksgiving, and Don't Forget the Turkey - Shadowproof

Happy Thanksgiving, and Don't Forget the Turkey - Shadowproof

Over at today, DHinMI has a post on a theme that I’ve written about here in the past:We’re approaching an election where it’s not just Democrats or the left side of our national political spectrum that hungers for bold, assertive politics and a dramatic change of course. The views of many of the people associated with the Netroots really are the majority because they’re not just the left, but they’re the left and the center. We are the mainstream.. . . The principles and beliefs of “the left,” or the Netroots, or the Democratic party have long—and effectively—been derided by the GOP as...

Obama Tries to Suffocate Ridiculous Gates Controversy with Soothing Blanket of Words, Common Sense - Shadowproof

Obama Tries to Suffocate Ridiculous Gates Controversy with Soothing Blanket of Words, Common Sense - Shadowproof

At the end of his impromptu appearance in the White House briefing room earlier today, President Obama indirectly admitted why he was making yet another statement on the arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr.:Over the last two days as we’ve discussed this issue, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but nobody has been paying much attention to health care.The press laughed, but Obama was telling an important truth. Just as the ginned-up Whitewater and other investigations of President Clinton in 1994 were all about derailing healthcare reform, so is the Gates brouhaha for many of...

Late Night FDL: Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder - Shadowproof

Late Night FDL: Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder - Shadowproof

(photo: Gage Skidmore)How must it feel to be Mitt Romney right now, seeing Rick Santorum in the latest national polls?  Is he starting to get the hint yet that — presumptive front-runner or not — the Republican base just doesn’t want him to be their nominee for the White House?Or maybe he just feels unlucky.  Most presidential candidates only have to defeat one major opponent in the primaries and caucuses.  Instead, despite lopsided advantages in money and organization, Romney has found himself battling what must be the most comically absurd hydra in the history of American...
