From POLITICAL HOTSHEET at CBS NEWS:
Conservative Fox News television host, author, and radio host Glenn Beck has started a university.
According to an announcement on Beck’s Web site, “Beck University is a unique academic experience bringing together experts in the fields of religion, American history and economics.” In July, August and September, interested parties can participate in “captivating lectures and interactive online discussions” in which “experts will explore the concepts of Faith, Hope and Charity and show you how they influence America’s past, her present and most importantly her future.”

President Barack Obama’s first Supreme Court nominee, Second District Appeals Court Judge Sonia Sotomayor, began taking hits from the right as her nomination was announced Tuesday morning, with top conservatives describing her as a hardline liberal who would impose her personal agenda on the Court.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee called Sotomayor’s appointment “the clearest indication yet that President Obama’s campaign promises to be a centrist and think in a bipartisan way were mere rhetoric.”
(And by the way, kids, he didn’t even get her name right when he started bitching and moaning about her. He called her Maria.)

From The Swamp at The Chicago Tribune:
We knew that Vice President Dick Cheney had left Yale under less than honorable terms – “by mutual agreement,” as he put it today — but maybe we had forgotten, until today, that he also was kicked out of Kindergarten.
