KY-Jellyfish

From The Courier-Journal:

Take Sen. Mitch McConnell. His office was caught trying to promote the smear of a Baltimore family, when brain-injured 12-year-old Graeme Frost spoke up for the State Children’s Health Care Insurance Program, which helped when he and his little sister were badly injured in an accident.

Kiss My Crass!

From The Christian Science Monitor:

Shock jock Don Imus – ousted from TV and radio for a racist and sexist remark – is coming back. Conservative pundit Ann Coulter – who has been criticized for anti-Islamic and anti-Semitic rants – never left.

For years, America’s public conversation has become increasingly harsh, polarized, and full of what satirist Stephen Colbert famously coined “truthiness” – the preoccupation with a “gut belief,” regardless of the facts of a situation.

SCHIP Off the Old Block

From The Seattle Times:

Insuring children was considered the easiest part of the health-overhaul challenge because they are cheaper to cover and support for doing so is high.

But the debate bogged down on two key questions also at the heart of broader changes to cover the 47 million uninsured: costs and the role of government in helping middle-class families, not just the poor.

President Bush earlier this month vetoed a measure expanding a program that provides health insurance for children of the working poor. As expected, Thursday’s attempt to override his veto failed.

The Stark Truth

From C-SPAN via The Raw Story:

During today’s House debates over legislation to expand the SCHIP program, vetoed by President Bush, California Democratic Rep. Pete Stark lodges an indictment against the Bush Administration, and his colleagues in the opposition, sharing his perception that there is a higher priority given to money to wage war and “blow things up” than that given to health care for American children in need.

Missing in Inaction

From The Carpetbagger Report:

Woody Allen once said, “90 percent of life is just showing up.” For Fred Thompson, that appears to be too much to ask.

Mitt Romney was in Michigan, Colorado, Arizona and Nevada and then went back to Michigan. Rudy Giuliani visited Florida, Michigan, South Carolina, Alabama, Washington and New Hampshire. John McCain went from Michigan to Iowa to New Hampshire.

But where was Fred, as in Fred Thompson?
