So the Susan G Komen Foundation has hired an expensive reputation consulting firm (the firm run by Mark Penn, who ruined Hillary Clinton’s shoo-in candidacy for president in 2008 by not knowing how Democratic Party state caucuses work — good luck with this project, Ambassador Brinker!) to ask supporters how they might repair their reputation after the Planned Parenthood fiasco entirely of their own creation.

James Dobson’s slam on Newt Gingrich at the recent behind-closed-doors meeting of evangelical Christian leaders grabbed a lot of attention in the press, but no one seems to remember that these two have a past. In 2007, Gingrich went on Dobson’s radio program to confess his history of marital infidelity, and received the blessing of numerous TheoCon leaders for doing so.
Now, though, Dobson appears to have led the charge against Gingrich in that meeting of religious conservatives. Is Dobson repenting for having given Gingrich a platform to try to rebuild in image back in 2007?

It’s really time for either some consistency in the way the government pursues its war on terror violent extremism, or an admission that the war on terror has disintegrated into a war on those who oppose U.S. empire. The government is still investigating a bunch of peace activists for material support. And yet four prominent Republicans can offer the same kind of material support as the peace activists — but this time in service of war or U.S. hegemony or oil — with no similar consequences?

Dredging up the idea that Giuliani may be a viable candidate in ’12? Must be a slow news day for Politico.
