Late Nite FDL: It’s Hard Out Here For a Pimp

By: Friday March 31, 2006 8:36 pm

  Update:  TBogg has more on tough-talking mama’s boys gonna f**k up Yearly Kos.  Oooh, paintball. Jonah Goldberg has decided Jill Caroll is not conducting herself appropriately following her captivity. I have no doubt it would take Jonah Goldberg all of 5 minutes to go into Ring Ding withdrawal and offer up his fellow captives [...]


George Bush’s Favorite Democrat: Running Scared

By: Friday March 31, 2006 5:38 pm

  Last night Holy Joe was openly booed by his own party, which indicates he’s known all along something we only suspected.  When Lieberman went on the attack early in the game and started raising Ned Lamont’s profile I speculated that they must’ve had some really awful internal polling.  Why else would Lieberman be calling [...]

Reason #30452 To Give to Ned Lamont

By: Friday March 31, 2006 3:02 pm

On Wednesday afternoon, the DSCC and the DCCC held a conference call with some bloggers.  That was my first time participating in one of those.  I found it. . . enlightening.  Ahem. I’ve already written about the basic message both Rahm Emanuel and Chuck Schumer conveyed to us about their strategy for the Fall, without [...]

A Personal Thank-You to Joe Biden

By: Friday March 31, 2006 12:51 pm

I know many were upset with Joe Biden’s cowardly decision to cower under the bed while Russ Feingold bravely showed up to defend the Constitution in today’s Senate Jucidiary hearings, but I think you people have it ALL WRONG. Do you know how hard it is to keep those bleached teeth and hair plugs out [...]

Thoughts on the Censure Hearing

By: Friday March 31, 2006 11:10 am

  UPDATE:  The invaluable Crooks and Liars has the clip of Sen. Feingold giving Glenn his due.  (Thanks, John — you’re a peach!)  Good on Glenn for making a splash — and good on Feingold for recognizing quality blogging when he reads it. Both Sen. Russ Feingold and Sen. Pat Leahy stood up for the [...]

By: Friday March 31, 2006 9:54 am

The hearing is concluded today.  The entire hearing will be re-aired this evening beginning at 8:50 ET, according to C-Span.

SPECTER OPENING: Important hearing because it addresses the struggle between inherent Presidential authority and Congress’s checks and balances, [...]

Censure Hearing, Part II

By: Friday March 31, 2006 8:35 am

SPECTER FIRST ROUND: Asks Dean about his questions about impeachment for the President in his "Worse than Watergate." Dean says that he sees bad faith – but doesn’t see bad faith as a prerequisite to censure. (RH: Specter is doing rapid-fire questions in the cross-examination style, btw.) Asks Fein about Article II and secrecy – [...]

Censure Hearings, Part I

By: Friday March 31, 2006 7:20 am

NOTE: C-Span began its coverage into the beginning of the hearing – so this begins with where their coverage picks up. Not certain if anyone prior to Hatch may have given an opening statement. Hopefully, transcripts will be posted at some point online, and I will link those up when they are posted. HATCH OPENING: [...]

Censure Hearing Today — FDL Patriot Action

By: Friday March 31, 2006 6:10 am

The Censure Resolution hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee begins at 9:30 am, according to the committee schedule.  Looks like the hearing will be carried live on C-Span.  (And can I just say thank goodness for C-Span, because you know the regular news media are planning some sort of missing white woman extravaganza baseball steroids [...]

Late Nite FDL: Bad Night for Bush’s Favorite Democrat

By: Thursday March 30, 2006 9:13 pm

Update:  Ned Lamont only needs 300 more donations to make it to 3000 donors tomorrow.  As Atrios says, even $10 is a donation.  Connecticut Democrats openly booed Joe Lieberman during a high-profile party dinner with both Ned Lamont and Jim Dean of DFA in attendance. Although key note speaker Barak Obama had good words for [...]
