Our team gathered some great video which didn’t get paired up with featured articles this week, but they’re excellent Easter evening treats. Here’s a second chance for some videos we couldn’t squeeze into this week’s lineup.

Early Morning Swim: Keith Olbermann Blasts Limbaugh Comments on Haiti

By: Friday January 15, 2010 5:00 am

There isn’t a human tragedy too big for the drug-addicted draft-dodging sex tourist to politicize. RUSH: No, I’m not evading it at all. If I said it I meant to say it, and I do believe that everything is political to this president. Everything this president sees is a political opportunity, including Haiti, and he [...]

Kansas City Free Clinic: Haunting Video from the Heartland

By: Thursday December 10, 2009 8:58 am

Many of the people I met today are working full time and simply cannot afford the exorbitant monthly health insurance premium, so they go without. The choice is stark. Health insurance or rent, food and clothing for the kids.

I think it’s so sad that even as Arkansas has one of the highest uninsured rates in the country (17%), Blanche Lincoln is refusing to say whether she’ll even allow debate on desperately needed health care legislation. Instead, she’s focused on leveraging her vote for personal political advantage. She wants to be “wooed.”

Good for Lieutenant Governor Halter for putting the needs of Arkansas ahead of political self-interest.

By: Tuesday November 10, 2009 4:45 am

Second thoughts? After indicating that she could live with the Stupak amendment in an interview Monday morning, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) said tonight that she opposes the measure because it overreaches in restricting access to abortions. Her words mark a slight change of attitude from this morning, when she suggested on MSNBC that the amendment [...]

Fox has been shoveling shit on the White House since day one of the Obama Presidency, so why has this administration waited till October to call a spade a spade?
