In other news...

  • From Quorum Report (via Carl Whitmarsh) comes word that Don Yarborough passed away yesterday. Don was one of the leaders of the progressive movement in Texas. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
  • Farouk Shami, the Houston Hair Honcho, has hired a campaign manager and a pollster to fine tune messaging for his expected run for Texas Governor. Which should make the 2010 Democratic primary the most expensive in history. And I, personally, can't wait to see the message they come up with!
  • A stupid, doe-eyed reporter for the WSJ wrote this about 39%. Among the errors is the omission of the fact that we balanced the budget with stimulus money and that we actually had to borrow money from the Feds to cover unemployment benes and that 39% is, in general, a roundly hated douchebag. Just sayin'
  • Speaking of stupid conservative idolatry, here's a nice piece from Bruce Bartlett that can be rather neatly summarized as 'Clinton was better than Bush'. Bruce was on Reagan's economic team, just so you know where he's coming from.
  • Y'all have yourselves a goodun!
