It's one thing to say advertising is down but was that the best moment to lay another $13 billion in debt on the thing? You don't throw an anchor to a man barely threading water.

Fight the SmearsIf you're like me, you've just about had it with how Dems are portrayed in the Media. The closer we get to the election, the more of a feeding frenzy this is going to become.

Stagflation in the 1970s and early '80s undermined New Deal ideas and called forth a rebirth of radical free-market notions. What's becoming the Panic of 2008 will mean an end to the latest Capital Rules era.

"Democrats or Liberals" need not apply.

Only Republicans or rightwingers were hired by the Bush Administration for the "Honors" and Summer Intern programs at the Justice Department. The account by All Things Considered this evening is extraordinary.
