Bayh vs. Obama

I love the fact that our President is really willing to be with the people. He hosted another townhall meeting today and took unscreened questions, answered (to the chagrin of Republican critics) without a teleprompter! Gasp! The President continues to prove he is not only brilliant, but brave too. 

Seriously, I really am glad to see him out there, mixing and mingling and getting the story from the mouths of those living the life. He said he wanted to stay connected and he genuinely seems to be making a go of it.

On the flip side, what's up with Evan Bayh? I mean, wasn't he on the short list to be the Vice President? And here he is, trying to rebrand himself and oppose the President at every turn. I'm all for healthy debate and critique of the status quo, but I just find the whole thing interesting. One has to wonder if he would be so "courageous" and willing to "challenge" the President if he weren't up for re-election soon?

Kiss My Fat Ass!

Bravo Meghan McCain! 

Although I'm a little disappointed she canceled her interview with CNN today, Meghan's been holding her own against the onslaught from the right. Admittedly, she brought it on, taking a jab at Ann Coulter:  
Everything about her is extreme: her voice, her interview tactics, and especially the public statements she makes about liberals. Maybe her popularity stems from the fact that watching her is sometimes like watching a train wreck.
But Meghan's a moderate Republican, and she's calling for the party to rebuild and reconsider some of its extreme positioning. Apparently, her calls aren't falling so much on deaf ears as pissed off ears. Laura Ingraham, taking up for her "tight girl" Ann, responds by teasing Meghan about her weight and calling her a "useful idiot."

Meghan who has recently been on Rachel Maddow and the View has responded by channeling her inner Tyra Banks:  Kiss my fat ass!

Check her out on Rachel's show...
