How did they go from $250,000 or more to this in a few weeks?
If they continue like that, Joe the Plumber will be considered rich even if he never makes enough to buy that plumbing business he’s always wanted.
Stanley Kurtz has got the goods on Obama’s past, once again:
Obama’s New party ties graphically illustrate the connection between his troubling “associations” and the core economic issues of the presidential campaign. The New Party’s agenda was radically redistributionist. More important, the New Party’s specific strategy for achieving its economic goals precisely paralleled Obama’s now infamous 2001 radio remarks on “major redistributive change.”

The result would be something like this.
Pretty clever, if not always funny.
Nice. I wonder if all model Tivo’s will have this capability. I used to have a DirecTV Tivo and it couldn’t do everything free-standing Tivos could.
Reuters: Qaeda Wants Republicans, Bush Humiliated.
Alas, not many protestors, but at least they’re out there.

Looks like they definitely could, depending on where you live, even if you don’t work for a federal defense contractor. Communities in certain states derive much income from defense projects.
Some Democrats could be seeing that possibility.
Welcome back, Fairness Doctrine! (Not)
What an affront to free speech, really.
So says Rasmussen.
I guess people are paying attention now. Either that or “redistribution” has more resonance than “hope and change”.
Of course, there’s only one poll that counts and that’s not it. We’ll see next week.

This is the AP? I feel like saying “Who are you and what have you done with the news service?”

A friend of Anne Thompson’s who also covers the entertainment biz has caught a screening of the new DiCaprio-Winslet starrer, Revolutionary Road (it’s almost as if they lived happily unhappily ever after post-Titanic). He or she has shared first impressions with Anne and she has posted them here.
I know little about the film, except that it’s Sam Mendes’s new project and that it’s shaping up to become an early Oscar favorite. Evidently it’s an adaptation of a novel of note, but I had never heard of it before.
You can watch a trailer for the film here.
National Review’s Jim Gheraty writes “If You’re Going to Worry, Worry About the Right Things.”

Not in Nevada, so far (via Drudge).
Talk about Infernal Affairs: Mexican drug cartels allegedly placed moles in Mexico’s Attorney General’s office and maybe even in the U.S. Embassy.
It has been a bad year for Mexico and its drug war. If true, the moles would partly explain why.
Via Drudge: “The traditional media are playing a very, very dangerous game — with their readers, with the Constitution and with their own fates.”
Nikki Finke has the Top 10, with analysis. No surprise: High School Musical 3 is Number 1. W, not so much.
I know I’m a little late with the information, but it was a busy weekend and it kind of extended into Monday…
Well, this season of Sarah Connor Chronicles certainly hasn’t lived up to the quality of the first one. I would have expected Fox to cancel it by now, but good for them.
I can just imagine what an Obama Presidency would be like for “non-compliant” media…
Janet Maslin reviews Donald Spoto’s Spellbound by Beauty: Alfred Hitchcock and His Leading Ladies for the NYT.
One more to add to my list!
NOT SO FAST, GUYS: Obama staffers had to pull their bogus Ohio registrations AND ballots.
An investigation has begun. I thought Obamaniacs were against government spying and all that FISA court stuff. I guess not so much…
Anne Thompson reflects on “Changeling” after seeing it a second time. She also links to a couple of reviews.
“Changeling” is based on a true story of injustice about a 1920’s Los Angeles woman whose son disappears to the consternation of much of the city. The authorities eventually bring back to her a different boy; and put her in an insane asylum once she protests their ineffectiveness.
Which is just what I would expect our L.A. City Hall to do.
Wow. When I saw that the government of perennial financial screw-up Argentina was planning to confiscate private pensions to make up for a lack of funds, I told myself something like that could never happen here.
Looks like I was wrong. The Democrats are planning something pretty close to it if Obama becomes President. Say goodbye to your 401K. And forget about 401K tax breaks.
Samsung Blu-Ray players that can stream Netflix content! Nice.
But concluding that “Craig’s humorless Bond is in danger of becoming simply a very well-dressed but murderous thug”? This must be a darker Bond. But that sounds right, since Quantum is largely a revenge story.
