Brunch Time!!!!

If you missed Keith's run down on the primaries, here is memory lane...



Great new state lapel pins, make sure you check it out.


Maureen Dowd has an interesting op-ed in the NYT, "Mincing Michelle". One thing that she takes to task is the internet rumors, especially that "whitey tape", which is a tape that DOES NOT EXIST. Believe me, if it did it would have been OUT.

Also that E.D. Hill had to apologize on air for the "terrorist fist jab" mention on her show at Fox News. Again, the stupids are out hot and heavy.

“Michelle,” as one political observer puts it, “is a target-rich environment.”

Team Obama is hoping for the best. When she’s on her game, after all, Michelle is a knockout. And as one Obama booster enthuses: “Michelle’s story is a lot more mainstream American than Cindy McCain inheriting a brewery.”

But the campaign is preparing for the worst, planning to shore up Michelle with her own slick and quick war room staffed by top operatives from previous campaigns.

David Axelrod thinks “there’s a real recoil potential” if the Republicans go after Michelle. “I don’t think she’s projecting herself into the fray in a way that would justify that,” he said, adding that her charming and polite daughters, Malia and Sasha, are walking testimony to Michelle’s “loving parenting.”

Read all of it here.

Plus LA Times get us prepared for the GOP going after Michelle Obama

They loved to hate Hillary Rodham Clinton. They loved to hate Teresa Heinz Kerry. And now, it appears, conservative voices are energetically taking on Michelle Obama.

"Mrs. Grievance" bellowed the cover of a recent National Review, which featured a photo of a fierce-looking Obama. The magazine's online edition titled an essay about her stump speech "America's Unhappiest Millionaire."

Michelle Malkin, the popular conservative blogger, called her "Obama's bitter half."

Even the relatively liberal online magazine Slate piled on. In a piece subtitled "Is Michelle Obama responsible for the Jeremiah Wright fiasco?" the contrarian Christopher Hitchens blamed her for her husband's pastor troubles since she was a member of the church first.

sigh....where have we seen this ugliness before? Remember, how the GOP victimized Hillary Clinton in the 90s? They are attempting to do this again. But watch for heavy pushback from the Obama Campaign.

And another interesting read on Michelle and feminism is here. (h/t jjp)


Oklahoma Congressman Dan Boren (D-OK) refuses to endorse Obama. Stating he is too, liberal. But his father, former Governor and Senator David Boren backs Obama. sigh....


OK. The Clintons Enemies List. More stuff at HuffPo. Next.


Morning Joe show airing the laundry of the Vanity Fair article about Bill Clinton.


Bringing the troops home is not important to McCain....h/t to slinkerwink


Good news for Obama, a lead in Rasmussen Poll, 45-42 over McCain....also the NBC/Wall Street Journal Poll is being released later today. Stay tuned. Or check poblano over at 538, to my left.


Obama vs. the Internet Rumor Machine.


Lastly, a must read diary over at daily kos by timran, McCain's History of Blow-Ups: The Top Ten.

My take, once you know how to stroke that fire, expect a blow up. Folks, it will come before November.

Hope your day is going great.
