Just in Time

Our colleagues at Time have much of interest on the web too. Two we're reading here:

Remember Martha Coakley? Michael Crowley does. Will the Christine O'Donnell juggernaut blow past snickering Democrats and candidate Chris Coons like this fall's Scott Brown? Crowley suggests this is a real possibiliy in his analysis at

Elizabeth Warren has a funny new title: Assistant to the President and Special advisor to the Secretary of the Treasury on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Massimo Calabresi explains the reasoning for her not to get the job as head of the actual agency. He's written a piece for Time's Swampland.

    I whole-heartedly agree. Don't take this woman as a joke. People like to vote for the under-dog, or "picked-on" simply to stick it to the establishment. If she even gets close to winning, it will be the faults of those Dems that react arrogantly and don't prepare.

    Hopefully, he won't. This is a dangerous woman. These mama grizzles are wackos, who can't be ignored. Hope he crushes her this November.

    If this is ture. The the America that I believe in and love will no longer be the country for all of it's people. Think about the past and what this country was like. White people only!!! I believe that the American People will not allow this to happen. The New origanizations have failed the American People by not telling the truth. Disappointing.

  4. Tea Party gone wild!!!

    The GOP spawn a monster and now the Tea Party is eating them. If Democrats hold the house and senate you wait and see how crazy they get. I will be fun to watch pass the popcorn.

    Obama and the dems have already penciled in as a win a Senate seat in Delaware.I wonder if voters are happy with his handling of the economy and the fact he's sent 60,000 more soldiers to Afghanistan.

    This weekend, watch how full the college and pro football stadiums will be. Not to mention the hotels. Where are all the unemployed people?

    Last I checked, Chris Coons is actually bothering to run a campaign, so Time's attempt to belittle him with an analogy to Coakley is entirely misplaced.

    "funny new title"

    That's right...keep on belittling. Keep in mind, folks, CNN and Time are part of a giant corporation too. They're likely as angry about consumer protection as the likes of Walmart and Citibank. After all, purposeful dissemination of misinformation is a form of consumer abuse whether it's the "news" or your credit card statement.

    don't worry about O'Donnell – her juggernaut is headed directly to jail. she's violated federal election laws repeatedly, should be barred from the campaign, and an investigation by the FEC will begin next week. another republican who says "I am not a crook" just like Tricky Dick,

    Elizabeth Warren is a great litmus test to detect GOBPbagger hypocrisy. They CLAIM to be opposed to the Wall St. bailouts. If so, they should support Warren, who has fought harder than anyone to take Wall St. down a peg. Oh wait, you mean the teatards don't really hate Wall St. as much as they claim? What a surprise. I wonder if all that money from billionaires like the Koch brothers have anything to do with this.
