Received this e-mail from VoteVets in support of Dan McCready’s (D. NC-09) campaign: Republicans have already committed $4 million in outside spending to take on progressive Marine veteran Dan McCready in the quickly-approaching NC-9 special election.

Joshua Johnson, of PBS 1A fame, appeared on Meet The Press with Chuck Todd. He is the kind of guy that should be running a show like MTP. Todd's reaction to a story he told about a man in Michigan illustrates the nature of our media.

A reply I wrote on another diary just now gave me an idea. We could try to settle on a single moniker for Trump and harp on it over and over. One reason “Moscow Mitch” works so well — aside from being true — is
