Around the Blogsphere in 80 Minutes
Well, I wanted to point out to you that, even though the Media Whore Drinky McDumbAss Coronation Tour has shamelessly distorted the unemployment and GDP figures, Wall Street and others in the know don’t seem to be buying the BS any more. But Kos, Atrios, and a few of the usual suspects have talked about this much better than I can hope to. So perhaps you can take a look at what they have to say.
Taking a quick trip around the Fashionable Left Bank of Blogistan leads me to recommend the following posts from some of our favorite bloggers:

Apathy Inc. checks out a conservative DJ who isn’t making a whole lot of sense (surprise!).

Ignatz tells us he would be a judge who used judgement.
Rook’s Rant says that his mom is going to vote for the Democrats for the first time in her life.

Veiled4Allah leads us all to the Muslims for Kucinich web site.
