    Tim Pawlenty’s campaign manager yesterday sent out an e-mail outlining Pawlenty’s accomplishments and assuring supporters that the former Minnesota governor’s fan club will continue to grow, while enthusiasm for other candidates — most implicitly, Michele Bachmann — will fade.“In 2008, voters elected a member of Congress with no executive experience. We can’t afford the cost of inexperience any longer, and Iowans are getting that,” Ayers wrote. “[A]s more Republican primary voters start to tune in to the race, they are finding out that the governor’s record and message will stand the test [of] a brutal campaign. Other candidates’ records (or...

    Early Thursday afternoon, Derek Willis posted on the paper’s "Caucus" blog a request surely enticing to the paper’s online liberal readership: "Help Us Investigate the Sarah Palin E-Mail Records." Ken Shepherd at NewsBusters says enlisting newspaper readers to pore through the email trove "indirectly amounts to free oppo research for the 2012 Obama campaign." On Friday, the State of Alaska will release more than 24,000 of Sarah Palin’s e-mails covering much of her tenure as governor of Alaska. Times reporters will be in Juneau, the state capital, to begin the process of reviewing the e-mails, which we will be posting...

    LOS ANGELES — Stop that $1 million check: It turns out the call girl linked to Eliot Spitzer had already shed her clothes for "Girls Gone Wild" as an 18-year-old while partying in Miami, the video company's founder said Tuesday. Joe Francis had reached out to Ashley Alexandra Dupre, now 22, with an offer of $1 million to appear in a non-nude spread for his company's new magazine, plus a chance to join the "Girls Gone Wild" tour bus, his company announced Tuesday. But Francis said someone had a revelation at the Tuesday morning staff meeting: Did anyone think to...

    Clinton Objects to Confederate Flag Feb 19 4:25 PM US/Eastern By JIM DAVENPORT Associated Press Writer ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) -- Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday that South Carolina should remove the Confederate flag from its Statehouse grounds, in part because the nation should unite under one banner while at war. "I think about how many South Carolinians have served in our military and who are serving today under our flag and I believe that we should have one flag that we all pay honor to, as I know that most people in South Carolina do every single...

    A man playing golf at a Lemont, Ill., country club claims he received a concussion from a ball hit by a prominent personal-injury lawyer. Edigio "Gino" Berni claims in a lawsuit filed against Chicago attorney Michael Goldberg he was struck in the temple by a ball hit by the lawyer in August, the Chicago Daily Southtown reported Friday. Berni's attorney, Mario Palermo, said his client saw Goldberg hit the ball, which the suit claims bore the name of the attorney's law firm, Goldberg, Weisman and Cairo. "(Goldberg) has a reputation for helping people like Gino," Palermo said. "He hasn't taken...

    If you hate vanities I'll take no offense as you click elsewhere. If you hate the idea of vanity crossbreeding with greed and opportunism of the rankest order, read on and feel your blood boil. Mine hit Fahrenheit 213 when I read that Democratic Senator Charles Schumer was now actively using the aftermath of hurricane Katrina as a partisan fundraising tool. Tragedies bring out the best in some the worst in others. After this week, I've come to believe that tragedy, like advancing age, just makes us all more of what life has taught us to be. In the case...

    Wilmer-Hutchins ISD officials are having difficultly explaining why they sold a large chunk of an active school property. The sale of Kennedy Curry Middle School, which sits on about 10 acres of South Dallas land near Interstate 20, took place last year in a transaction that was kept quiet until now. On April 12, school board president Luther Edwards and board secretary Dortha Thomas signed off on the sale of 4.5 acres of that property. A quitclaim deed indicates the district received $4,700 for the property at 3501 Soft Wind. Both Edwards and Thomas said they had no idea they...

    US Democratic Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts, who had hoped to replace George W. Bush as president yesterday, instead sat in the cold and clapped as the Republican began a second four-year term. Iowa Democratic Senator Tom Harkin patted Senator Kerry on the back shortly before the inauguration Senator Kerry had hoped would be his. As Mr Bush delivered his inaugural address, Senator Kerry, about 10m away on the steps of the US Capitol, joined other lawmakers and the crowd in repeated applause. Senator Kerry looked relaxed, at times wistful. He frequently smiled, able to hide any disappointment over what...
  • Kitty, Cut Loose and Put Out (Kitty Kelley - Bwaahaha!)

    After a relationship of more than 30 years, Washingtonian magazine and writer Kitty Kelley are divorcing, and the terms are not amicable. Kelley is in a snit because the mag unceremoniously booted her from the masthead of its current issue, citing her controversial book "The Family: The Real Story of the Bush Dynasty." In an e-mail last week, Editor Jack Limpert lashed Kelley for what he called the book's partisan timing and its irresponsible reporting about President Bush: "We are always willing to attack the policies, and the behavior, of the President," Limpert wrote to Kelley. "But it seems to...

    Democratic presidential hopeful Carol Moseley Braun's shoestring campaign faces another upheaval as she names former NOW chairwoman Patricia Ireland as her latest campaign manager while other key aides depart. "I have made a whole adult career out of tilting at windmills,'' Ireland said Sunday. Ireland becomes Braun's third campaign chief. Longtime Braun confidant Billie Paige ends her tenure today as treasurer while consultants Kitty Kurth and Kevin Lampe, the Chicago-based husband-and-wife team working with Braun since the start of her longshot bid, left the campaign on Friday, citing "personal'' reasons. Braun has resisted any suggestion she drop out of the...
