Yet another Clinton money scandal

You know it's real when the almighty New York Times can't avoid putting it on page one... This is like dejavu all over again. But don't think this little sideshow will obstruct the most important issue: corrupt Republicans. Especially the "out of the closet" ones, because being gay is suddenly wrong again (according to the drive-by media). Could we please have a break from these horrendous double-standards for even a few days? What ever happened to moral and ethical failure ruining the career of ANY politician (or other prominent figure), regardless of party, class or ideology?

Thompson: "We've got plenty of time."

Fred Thompson, still an undeclared candidate for president, campaigned in Iowa this week. Despite recent campaign setbacks, he sounds unworried and optimistic. He may have plenty of time, but it's running out plenty quick. GET IN, FRED!

Hillary's Records Out of Sight

Hillary Clinton wants voters to consider her stunning and allegedly historical record of her first go-around as "president," except for the nearly 2 million pages of documents currently deemed off-limits until after the 2008 election (probably WAY after...). See the LA Times for more.

More Evidence

This story seems to add more evidence to my hotly contested post about children and media. While I agree with the evidence in this story, this passage caught my eye:

"Parents and caretakers are the baby's first and best teachers," he noted. "They instinctively adjust their speech, eye gaze and social signals to support language acquisition. Watching attention-getting DVDs and TV may not be an even swap for warm social human interaction at a very young age."

May not be an even swap? Please.
