Stratfor - Fourth Quarter to be dominated by Iran, an escalation in fighting in Iraq. An attack by the US on Iran is not mentioned. A mild recession is also forecast for next year. Stratfor totally missed its foreign policy forecast last quarter - will it do better this quarter?

Conservative Activists call on Hastert to Resign
Even today, Republican't leadership excluding Democrats from meetings about Foley. Media Matters has more on the media lack of coverage of this.
Rush Limbaugh - Foley set up by evil liberal Democrats.
White House downplays Foley scandal as "simply naughty emails"
GOP's attempted cover-up Congressman Tom Reynolds' (R-NY) chief of staff, Kirk Fordham, tried to broker a secret deal last Friday to get ABC News to cover up the worst part of the Foley child predator scandal, the lurid five-plus-page instant message chat in which Foley asked a child to measure his penis and then led the child into a detailed discussion of masturbatory techniques.

Is House GOP leadership guilty of a criminal conspiracy?
WP ombudsman responds and agrees with critics - GOP critics. I had an interesting but not informative email exchange with her about her defending the editorial page contradicting facts in the news pages. She said people disagree on facts and pointed to a Post article on disagreement on interpretations of facts, not facts themselves.
The WP's latest editorial trash calls the Democratic Party 'A Party Without Principles'.
A Truly Liberal Media would have all of the GOP House leadership fearing imprisonment instead of simply having them off their game.
Texas 22nd has the GOP given up?
A very long list of Republican Party officials who are pedophiles.
ABC's Mark Halperin in the NY Times says falsely that America is "fundamentally conservative nation" ignoring huge overwhelming majorities for liberal positions.

Significant majorities support Roe v. Wade and equality for gays. Two-thirds back a balanced budget over tax cuts, 57% want a timetable for troop withdrawal from Iraq.

Janette Sexton is preparing some robo-calls which I am helping her with to sound better than her podcast interview. I will also check into why the League of Women Voters has not sent her their questions for the Voter Guide. Janette says she finally saw a Talton sign up. A pretty big one that pretty much just said Talton. Someone else, not me or her, suggested someone get a sign to put below it or beside it that just says "Sucks."
I see musings censored my comment which suggested she do more research on the Internet porn bills before aligning herself with Mark Foley, Rev. Jerry Falwell, Orson Hatch, Lamar Smith, and Dr. James Dobson against Ron Paul no matter how much politically it helps the Democrat. I also mentioned the comic book stores in Oklahoma closed down by a prosecutor doing an early version of the "morphing" laws contending a drawing of a demon was a small child.
