Ray McGovern got it right regarding the real problem of trying 9/11 criminals on U.S. soil:

For reasons that are painfully obvious, the (media) have done their best to ignore or bury the role that Israel’s repression of the Palestinians has played in motivating the 9/11 attacks and other anti-Western terrorism.

The U.S. House, not surprisingly, got it way wrong on health care reform:

Statements by more than a dozen lawmakers were ghostwritten, in whole or in part, by Washington lobbyists working for Genentech, one of the world’s largest biotechnology companies.

And Texas just doesn’t get it.  They may never.

Elsewhere, the Wonk Room has Exhibit A of why the Chamber of Commerce is partisan B.S. rather than the bipartisan ‘voice’ they claim to be.

And finally, I don’t think to got there too often, but the headlines today over at Huffington Post really sum it all up when it comes to American politics, and news (“Glen Beck’s Guest List Included White Supremacists”, “Drug Companies Raising Prices Ahead of Reform”, “Palin Accuses AP of Doing ‘Opposition Research’ in Fact Check of Book” and of course “Nicole Kidman: Motherhood Made My Boobs a Normal Size”).

Sigh…. good luck out there folks.
