Does anyone know what the deal is? Countdown is supposed to be on (according to Comcast) right now, but it's Lock Up instead. Did Keith forfeit his special edition to Chris Matthews and David Shuster, or what?

Subject:If you've been watching Keith the past few days,
Time:07:28 am
You'll have heard that Rachel is getting her own show (surprise!) starting on September 8th. It'll be following Keith's show, and replacing Dan Abrams.

I'm happy for Rachel and I'll definitely be watching. And hoping for Keith cameos! :)

But sad for Dan, cause I did like his show. I would have preferred her replacing Chris Matthews. :P

I watched Dan's show last night, which was the LAST SHOW, that I think he mentioned every 5 minutes. Poor Dan. :(

I guess MSNBC will be going hot and heavy at the 2 political conventions in the next couple of weeks.

But yay, Rachel! :)

Subject:Reason #5,765 that I love the junion Senator from Ilinois
Time:05:21 pm
NO...not his OBVIOUS expertise in basketball (that's reason #17,509).



NO...not that he has at least enough of a knowledge of geography that he knows that Iraq & Pakistan do not share a physical border (that's reason #213)



NO...not because he's aware of the countries that currently actually exist on this planet (that's reason #27).



Reason #5,765 is that he knows exactly what Fox "News" is...
(Sorry, no YouTube for this clip featuring the always glorious & magnificent Stephen Colbert).

Please do cut & paste it into your web browser, though, it's really worth it!!

That fake backdrop behind Keith should have given it away, but I listen, more than I actually watch.

For those who haven't seen it, Keith hosts the first 25 minutes, and then Rachel comes on, ostensibly as a guest like usual, but then Keith hands off the show to her, and Rachel hosts for the rest of the hour!

Interesting article on Rachel.

I'd love to see her host a show next year! :)

Subject:The words of a Fighting Liberal...
Time:05:36 pm
Living in a country bought & paid for by the Neocons who own the (not-so-)Grand Old Party & watching how they have done their best to use their total control of the government to take care of their (political) own & to fill the pockets of their corporate cohorts at the expense of the "little guy (and gal)" & run a war of choice based on lies by throwing as much cash & humanity as they can find it has--to say the least--been a little disheartening for progressives (and anyone else who is not part of the Bush Collective) for some time now.

This post (http://stevegilliard.blogspot.com/2003/12/im-fighting-liberal-you-know-ive.html), written by an unabashed LIBERAL, was written over 4 years ago on a blog I just found today. The sentiments Steve Gilliard writes about are still as timely & as important today as they ever were. I read it & I felt refreshed again. It helped me to remember that the fight for what's right & what's moral is ongoing & it is eternal. We don't ever make it to the top of the mountain. We can't allow ourselves to sit still & merely hope for the best. We have to always work at it & we have to always fight against forces that have a vested interest in blocking progress and in taking us backwards. They will never stop, so we must never stop.

I hope you read Steve's blog entry & I hope it gives to you the same desire it gave to me to engage the Good Fight.

What an awesome way to end the old year & prepare for the new.

Subject:Poor Mitt!
Time:07:34 am
The nation's first presidential primary occurs in New Hampshire in only SIXTEEN days! I still have no idea which Democrat I will be voting for in Florida's primary (and/or if the vote of Florida Democrats will matter at all - for more info see this article: http://politics.nytimes.com/packages/html/election-guide/2008/primaries/states/FL.html) which is about a month away, but this post has nothing to do with the Democrats. It concerns the other party.

I will admit that I've had a not-so-soft spot in my heart for Mitt Romney ever since he fought so hard to prevent marriage equality in Massachusetts. I was particularly disgusted that he dredged up a rarely-used, mean-spirited early 20th century law that prevented out-of-staters from getting married in the Bay State if their marriage would not have been recognized in the state of the couple's legal residence. This was a law that was created way-back-when to prevent people of different races from getting hitched in relatively liberal Massachusetts & then going back home to where it was still illegal & spreading the "disease" of tolerance to others. Good ol' Mitt couldn't stop gay Bay Staters from getting legal sanction from the state government, but he could stop latter-day reverse-carpetbaggers from sullying the "sanctity of marriage" in their own states by dusting off a law that hadn't been used for decades.

Anyway, back to the main point of this post: it seems that the good EX-Gov has had a little cold water thrown on his presidential aspirations from an influential newspaper in the neighbor state of New Hampshire. I'm sure there are at least a couple of people who feel the same way the Concord Monitor does about Romney's flippity-floppity issue positions, but no one I've seen yet has worded it better than the Monitor's editorial entitled, "Romney should not be the next president" (http://www.concordmonitor.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20071222/OPINION/712230301).

I particularly dig this part: "People can change, and intransigence is not necessarily a virtue. But Romney has yet to explain this particular set of turnarounds in a way that convinces voters they are based on anything other than his own ambition." As the Brits say, "Spot on!" Beyond this man's obvious distaste for more stable relationships in Massachusetts, that's what has bugged me about Mitt Romney. I would wager that most voters have long believed that most politicians will say or do just about anything to get a vote. Mitt Romney is the most egregious example of that for me in this election cycle. If I were a republican, I'd be wary of voting for a man who is concerned more with "his own ambition" than with doing what is right for his country...but, of course, I am not a republican, and I am not in the business of advising these people how to vote.

Should I feel guilty because, in this most joyous season, I am TOTALLY enjoying this pre-Xmas gift of a well-worded figurative political evisceration from the Concord Monitor of a politician for whom I have no respect? Should I be ashamed of myself for giggling like a schoolgirl and indulging in such raw schadenfreude when I read the words in this editorial?!?!

Maybe I should, but, the truth is, I'm too busy trying to fit in last-minute Christmas shopping into my already-overloaded homosexual agenda! So, in the words of Scarlet O'Hara, "I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow," (if there's not another pre-Christmas sale on).
