About That Apology, Ginni…

From The Washington Post:

For nearly two decades, Lillian McEwen has been silent — a part of history, yet absent from it.

When Anita Hill accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his explosive 1991 Supreme Court confirmation hearing, Thomas vehemently denied the allegations and his handlers cited his steady relationship with another woman in an effort to deflect Hill’s allegations.

Lillian McEwen was that woman.

Listing to the Right

From POLITICAL HOTSHEET at CBS NEWS:

During a Sunday appearance on Fox News, Republican strategist Karl Rove fired back at recent accusations that he has “funded” conservative groups responsible for pouring money into nationwide conservative causes, and disputed the validity of statements made by President Obama and the Democratic National Committee.

“The president is completely inaccurate,” Rove said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” of Mr. Obama’s recent statements that Rove had “funded and advised” conservative groups American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS.

…snip…

Rove went on to slam a recent Democratic ad criticizing his past political contributions, and accused Mr. Obama for having an “enemies list.”

Not-So-Super Tuesday for Some People

From THE HILL:

It was a bittersweet night for Democrats as they won a House special election but saw one senator fall and another incumbent go to a runoff.

Meanwhile Republicans saw their favored Senate candidate lose in Kentucky to a darling of the Tea Party movement.

Most of all, Tuesday’s primaries were another sign of the anti-incumbent mood that has swept the nation and has lawmakers worried about their futures.

Bittersweet? Seriously?

Snow Day! What a Capitol Idea!

From The CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR:

With major airports and the federal government shut down, effects from this week’s snow storm will linger beyond the time needed to dig out. The unemployed may be impacted by Congress’ snow days, unless lawmakers are able to rush through a bill extending their benefits.

That didn’t stop the kids in D.C. from having some fun though!

I Know Nothing! Nothing!

From POLITICO:

“Game Change.” the just-released book on the 2008 campaign, portrays the vetting of [Sarah] Palin as “hasty and haphazard” and reports that McCain’s campaign didn’t speak with the former governor’s husband, political allies or enemies or even send anybody to Alaska to look into her background until after she was selected.

Asked on NBC’s “Today” show if the book was fair in its assessment, McCain responded: “I wouldn’t know.”

Pressed by host Matt Lauer how the GOP presidential nominee wouldn’t know about the vetting of his own running mate, McCain said: “I wouldn’t know what the sources are or care.”

The Schmidt Hits the Fan

From POLITICS DAILY:

In “Going Rogue,” Sarah Palin settled some scores with those she felt had done her wrong, including top aides to John McCain. One of the aides who came in for some of the most blistering criticism was a top campaign strategist, Steve Schmidt, and he’s now punching back. But paybacks can be tough, as Schmidt demonstrated in his appearance on CBS’ “60 Minutes” Sunday night.
