From Dana Milbank at The Washington Post:
Republicans want to take over the House in the fall, but there’s a problem: They don’t have an agenda.
So on Tuesday, they set out to resolve that shortcoming. They announced that they would solicit suggestions on the Internet, then have members of the public give the ideas a thumbs-up or a thumbs-down. Call it the “Dancing With the Stars” model of public policy.

From the Orlando Sentinel:
Two Florida women on the “Palin Truth Squad” set up by the John McCain campaign have added their voices to the McCain-inspired controversy over Barack Obama’s “lipstick on a pig” comments. You’ll recall that the insult — a longtime Southernism — was addressed at McCain. Efforts to depict the four-term senator as an agent of change are, Obama said, “like putting lipstick on a pig.”
It didn’t take long for former Massachusetts Gov. Jane Swift to accuse him of a “gender-based” remark that must have been directed at Sarah Palin — she being the only person in the campaign, Swift helpfully explained, who wears lipstick.
Yes, kids, a Palin Truth Squad. The woman who is supposedly ready to be President needs
bridesmaids an entire squad to watch over her and make sure nobody insults Captain Underpants’s little Princess Sarah. Don’t tell anyone, but I got a photo of one of the squad’s secret meetings!
