The establishment media loves the idea of a great American moderate political center, mostly because it would mean there is still a large market for their pathetic products that try for universal appeal in order to obtain eclectic advertising. Though for many of the media elite having influence is an end as well as a means to an end. Unfortunately for them, no such “center” exists and moderates are a statistical myth.

President Obama’s overall job approval numbers, while not great, remain decent in the latest Washington Post poll. The poll found that 44 percent approve of his job performance while 46 percent disapprove. While the total level of support remains little changed, the intensity of that support has dropped significantly.

Yesterday, in news eclipsed by the ongoing furor about the killing of Osama bin Laden, voters went to the polls in Ohio. On the ballot were primary elections for mayors and city councilmen, and a whole bevy of proposed tax levies, both new and renewed.

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele has been called a lot of names. Here’s another one for him: cheater.

The election numbers are in and the winner is….
America’s working families.
Even before the Nov. 4 results are tallied, the nearly year-long election mobilization throughout the union movement is a victory for the thousands of union volunteers who have dedicated their scarce free time in get-out-the-vote efforts. Without them, we could not have reached the millions of union members critical to reversing the misery of the Bush years.
