The FBI's anti-corruption squad is bigger than ever and roaming the Hill, and Democratic congressional investigators are just cracking their knuckles and getting out their subpoena forms.

They won in spite of it, in spite of a press that gave wall-to-wall coverage of Kerry's blunder and call-me ads, in spite of a press that chose feigned scandal over true substance. In the face of such a hostile media environment, the Democrats still won. And that, my friends, is a true miracle."* froomkin:
But even more astonishing to me was the "New Bush" I saw today in his press conference. Owning up to reality. Speaking well of Democrats. Acknowledging voter skepticism, and vowing to overcome it with deeds. Self-deprecating (rather than bullying). Who is this guy? Will it last?* atr:

"It's so nice to have the sane evil people back running a few things. Oh sane evil people, I will never take you for granted again."* harry and nancy should recruit Kofi Annan. just for fun.
