I never wrote about this stupid “controversy” because I remember reading something in my local paper that said it was no big deal. Which doesn’t surprise me, because the polling place where this alleged intimidation occurred was in a minority neighborhood, and I would be very surprised if anyone (other than patronage employees of the GOP-controlled parking authority) was breaking down the walls of the polling place to vote for John McCain.
But the corporate media, bowing to temper tantrums from the right, have pronounced this “news” anyway. Because we all know who really controls the media, and it ain’t us.

Wealth has its privileges — and then these interns grow up to take hereditary high-profile jobs in the media (Luke Russert) or in public office. And then they get to decide which social safety nets should be cut “for your own good.” See how that works?

What Krugman said. If only the administration stopped playing to the press and instead concentrated on how real people were affected by what they did.
This has puzzled me as long as I can remember. Politicians so rarely trust the voters to simply reward them with votes for doing the right thing — even though we’d love it.

Doctors have been treating breast cancer that really isn’t cancer — and of course, now the women who have treated are now at higher risk of cancer from their treatments.
Which is why I said before that you don’t want women getting yearly mammograms.

As you know, I’m one of those 99ers. As you also know if you read this blog, the unemployment extension expected to be passed this week doesn’t apply to me, or people like me. So if you can, please throw a few bucks in the tip jar.
Don’t give me money you need to stay afloat yourself. But if you can spare it, any donations are greatly appreciated.
And if you have anything more to spare, drop off some groceries to your local food bank. They’re really hurting.
