    Obama pokes fun at himself at correspondents' dinner

    I thought he did pretty good. Finally put to rest the teleprompter issue - the thing that Hannity uses every night. The right to bare arms is now in the lexicon!
  2. WASHINGTON (AFP) – US President Barack Obama poked fun at himself, his cabinet and the journalists who covered him at his first star-studded annual dinner with White House correspondents. The president joked about his reliance on a teleprompter and at what critics say is the easy ride he gets from Washington journalists. "Most of you covered me, all of you voted for me," Obama told more than 2,000 guests in the Cabinet Ballroom of the Washington Hilton Hotel. "In the next 100 days, I will learn to get off the prompter and Joe Biden will learn to get on the prompter," the president continued referring to his vice president. http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20090510/ts_alt_afp/uspoliticsobamaentertainment_20090510032309 I'm shocked you guy's weren't already talking about it.

    White House apologizes for Obama plane's NY flyover

    I wouldn't count on the good people of New York wavering 8 minutes of a poor choice against 8 years of stupid. What are you selling again?

    Five reasons the National Council for a New America won't work

    Great Time article: Republicans in Distress: Is the Party Over? As the party has shrunk to its base, it has catered even more to its base's biases, insisting that the New Deal made the Depression worse, carbon emissions are fine for the environment and tax cuts actually boost revenues-even though the vast majority of historians, scientists and economists disagree. The RNC is about to vote on a kindergartenish resolution to change the name of its opponent to the Democrat Socialist Party. This plays well with hard-core culture warriors and tea-party activists convinced that a dictator-President is plotting to seize their guns, choose their doctors and put ACORN in charge of the Census, but it ultimately produces even more shrinkage, which gives the base even more influence-and the death spiral continues. "We're excluding the young, minorities, environmentalists, pro-choice-the list goes on," says Olympia Snowe of Maine, one of two moderate Republicans left in the Senate after Specter's switch. "Ideological purity is not the ticket to the promised land." http://www.time.com/time/politics/article/0,8599,1896588,00.html

    I'm waiting for a little more information to come out. Right now it's not clear what exactly she was briefed on, but I'm looking forward to finding out.

    CIA Records Unclear On Pelosi Briefing Agency Briefed Dem On Interrogation Techniques In 2002 But No Indication That Use Of Waterboarding Was Disclosed (CBS/AP) CIA records show Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi was briefed in September 2002 on harsh interrogation techniques that could be used on terror suspects, but the records are unclear on whether she was informed that waterboarding - a form of torture - had already been used against a prisoner. The first mention of waterboarding comes in the description of a February 2003 meeting attended by Pelosi's successor on the House Intelligence Committee, California Democrat Jane Harman. Harman wrote to the CIA expressing concern about the techniques, the only known objection formally raised by a member of Congress at that time. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/05/08/politics/main5001003.shtml?tag=topHome;topStories Is there a possibility we are being a little quick to judge? If it's found she indeed knew about waterboarding, I'll join the festivities.

    Five reasons the National Council for a New America won't work

    I know, it's like watching a train wreck - especially considering other happenings of late. For the National Republican Senatorial Committee's recruitment list for 2010 reads like a roster of some of the party's best-known RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) and squishes-the derisive terms applied to centrists by movement conservatives. The party's top choice for Florida's open Senate seat is popular Gov. Charlie Crist, who raised eyebrows earlier this year with his vigorous advocacy of President Barack Obama's stimulus package-he even went so far as to appear with Obama at a Florida rally in February. In Connecticut, the national GOP has lobbied former Rep. Rob Simmons-who holds a higher lifetime rating from the liberal Americans for Democratic Action group than Specter does-to challenge Democratic Sen. Chris Dodd. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0509/22212.html

    Five reasons the National Council for a New America won't work

    Social conservatives are blasting the National Council for a New America, House Minority Whip Eric Cantor's (R-Va.) nascent effort to rebrand the Republican Party, as a misguided and weak-kneed initiative that is out of touch with the GOP rank and file. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0509/22242.html Trouble in paradise continues.
