Friday Morning Open Thread

Good morning.

Why am I still seeing Carrie Prejean on my television? Seriously. This isn’t news anymore. Between her, Kate and Jon and the guy who has the kid in Brazil, the traditional media has a full plate. No time to really cover the intricacies of health care reform, which would affect all of us. Can’t spend too much time uncovering the extensive hate networks in America and how they feed messages into “legitimate” organizations and members of Congress. Nope. Carrie Prejean hates the gay, Jon may or may not hate Kate and that other guy hates Brazil. Apparently, that’s all you need to know.

Today is election day in Iran. The campaigning got really raucous and very intense over the past few weeks. By the end of today, we should know if Iran has a new president or still has the whacko.

Let’s get it started….


On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
