GOP Hops Aboard the Inevitability Train

Speaking of (perceptions of) the inevitability of Sen. Clinton winning the Democratic nomination for president, Republicans are behaving as if the votes have already been cast. The Hill newspaper has a piece today about Stop Her Now and other efforts to tarnish Clinton’s image in anticipation of her winning the nomination. And Mike …

Re: Phony Soliders

Via Ana, who is not able to post it herself at the moment, comes this reaction to Rush from John McCain:

Continuing today’s do-it-yourself theme here in the Swamp, Mitt Romney’s campaign has announced a winner of its Create Your Own Ad contest:

Ana earlier noted an entry by our former colleague John Dickerson, who is now at Slate. But those folks at Slate didn’t stop there. There was also this one, by former Clinton domestic policy …

Edwards v. Edwards

Apparently, John Edwards was for combat missions in Iraq before he was against them. In his September 7 speech on terrorism, here’s what he had to say:
