Robin Williams Early life Williams was born in Chicago, Illinois. His mother, Laura (ne Smith, 19222001), was a former model from New Orleans, Louisiana. His father, Robert Fitzgerald Williams (September 10, 1906 October 18, 1987) was a senior executive at Lincoln-Mercury Motorship in charge of the Midwest area. Williams was raised in the Episcopal Church, though his mother practiced Christian Science. He grew up in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, where he was a student at the Detroit Country Day School, and Marin County, California, where he attended the public Redwood High School. Williams also attended Claremont McKenna College (then called Claremont Mens College) for four years. He has two half-brothers: Todd (who died August 14, 2007) and McLaurin. Williams has described himself as a quiet child whose first imitation was of his grandmother to his mother. He did not overcome his shyness until he became involved with his high-school drama department. In 1973, Williams was one of only 20 students accepted into the freshman class at the Juilliard School, and one of only two students to be accepted by John Houseman into the Advanced Program at the school that year, the other being Christopher Reeve. In his dialects class, Williams had no trouble mastering all dialects quickly. WIlliams left Juilliard in 1976. Television career After appearing in the cast of the short-lived The Richard Pryor Show on NBC, Williams was cast by Garry Marshall as the alien Mork in the hit TV series Happy Days. As Mork, Williams improvised much of his dialogue and devised plenty of rapid-fire verbal and physical comedy, speaking in a high, nasal voice. Morks appearance was so popular with viewers that it led to a spin-off hit television sitcom, Mork and Mindy, which ran from 1978 to 1982. Although playing the same character as in his appearance in Happy Days, the show was set in the present day, in Boulder, Colorado, instead of late 50s in Milwaukee. Mork was an extremely popular character, featured on posters, coloring books, lunchboxes, and other merchandise. Starting in the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s, Williams began to reach a wider audience with his standup comedy, including three HBO comedy specials, Off The Wall (1978), An Evening with Robin Williams (1982), and Robin Williams: Live at the Met (1986). Also in 1986, Williams reached an ever wider audience to exhibit his style at the 58th Academy Awards show; noting the Hollywood writers strike that year he commented that the Hollywood writer is the only man in the world that can blow smoke up his own ass. As a result, Williams has never hosted the Academy Awards again. His standup work has been a consistent thread through his career, as is seen by the success of his one-man show (and subsequent DVD) Robin Williams Live on Broadway (2002). He was voted 13th on Comedy Centrals list 100 Greatest Stand-ups of All Time in 2004. After some encouragement from his friend Whoopi Goldberg, he was set to make a guest appearance in the 1991 Star Trek: The Next Generation episode, A Matter of Time, but he had to cancel due to a scheduling conflict; Matt Frewer took his place as a time-traveling con man, Professor Berlingoff Rasmussen. Williams also appeared on an episode of the American version of Whose Line Is It Anyway? (Season 3, Episode 9: November 16, 2000). During a game of Scenes from a Hat, the scene What Robin Williams is thinking right now was drawn, and Williams stated I have a career. What the hell am I doing here? Cinema career Most of Williams acting career has been in film, although he has given some performances on stage as well (notably as Estragon in a production of Waiting for Godot with Steve Martin). His performance in Good Morning, Vietnam (1987) got Williams nominated for an Academy Award. Many of his roles have been comedies tinged with pathos, for example The Birdcage and Mrs. Doubtfire. His role as the Genie in the animated film Aladdin was instrumental in establishing the importance of star power in voice actor casting. Williams also used his voice talents in Fern Gully, as the holographic Dr. Know in the 2001 feature A.I. Artificial Intelligence, the 2005 animated feature Robots, the 2006 Academy Award winning Happy Feet, and an uncredited vocal performance in 2006s Everyones Hero. Furthermore, he was the voice of The Timekeeper, a former attraction at the Walt Disney World Resort about a time-traveling robot who encounters Jules Verne and brings him to the future. Williams has also starred in dramatic films, which got him two subsequent Academy Award nominations: First for playing an English teacher in Dead Poets Society (1989), and later for playing a troubled homeless man in The Fisher King (1991); that same year, he played an adult Peter Pan in the movie Hook. Other acclaimed dramatic films include Awakenings (1990) and What Dreams May Come (1998). In the 2002 dramatic thriller Insomnia, Williams portrays a writer/killer on the run from a sleep-deprived Los Angeles policeman (played by Al Pacino) in rural Alaska. And also in 2002, in the psychological thriller One Hour Photo, Williams played an emotionally disturbed photo development technician who becomes obsessed with a family for whom he has developed pictures for a long time. In 1998, he won an Oscar as Best Supporting Actor for his role as a psychologist in Good Will Hunting. However, by the early 2000s, he was thought by some to be typecast in films such as Patch Adams (1998) and Bicentennial Man (1999) that critics complained were excessively maudlin. In 2006 Williams starred in The Night Listener, a thriller about a radio show host who realizes he has developed a friendship with a child who may or may not exist. He is known for his improvisational skills and impersonations. His performances frequently involve impromptu humor designed and delivered in rapid-fire succession while on stage. According to the Aladdin DVD commentary, most of his dialogue as the Genie was improvised. In 2006, he starred in five movies including Man of the Year and was the Surprise Guest at the 2006 Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards. He appeared on an episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition that aired on January 30, 2006. At one point, he was in the running to play the Riddler in Batman Forever until director Tim Burton dropped the project. Earlier, Williams had been a strong contender to play the Joker in Batman. He had expressed interest in assuming the role in The Dark Knight, the sequel to 2005s Batman Begins, although the part of the Joker was played by Heath Ledger, who went on to win, posthumously, the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. He was portrayed by Chris Diamantopoulos in the made-for-TV biopic Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of Mork & Mindy (2005), documenting the actors arrival in Hollywood as a struggling comedian. Disputes with Disney In gratitude for his success with the Disney/Touchstone film Good Morning, Vietnam, Robin Williams voiced the Genie in the Disney animated film Aladdin for SAG scale pay (,000), on condition that his name or image not be used for marketing, and his (supporting) character not take more than 25% of space on advertising artwork, since Toys was scheduled for release one month after Aladdins debut. The studio went back on the deal on both counts, especially in poster art by having the Genie in 25% of the image, but having other major and supporting characters portrayed considerably smaller. Disneys Hyperion book, Aladdin: The Making Of An Animated Film, listed both of Williams characters The Peddler and The Genie ahead of main characters, but was forced to refer to him only as the actor signed to play the Genie. Williams and Disney had a bitter falling-out, and as a result Dan Castellaneta voiced the Genie in The Return of Jafar, the Aladdin animated television series, and had recorded his voice for Aladdin and the King of Thieves. When Jeffrey Katzenberg was fired from Disney and replaced by former 20th Century Fox production head Joe Roth (whose last act for Fox was greenlighting Williams film Mrs. Doubtfire), Roth arranged for a public apology to Williams by Disney. Williams agreed to perform in Hollywood Pictures Jack, directed by Francis Ford Coppola, and even agreed to voice the Genie again for the King Of Thieves sequel (for considerably more than scale), replacing all of Castellanetas dialogue. When Williams re-teamed with Doubtfire director Chris Columbus for 1999s Bicentennial Man, Disney asked that the budget be cut by approximately million, and when the film was released on Christmas Day, it flopped at the box office. Williams blamed Disneys marketing and the loss of content the film had suffered due to the budget cuts. As a result, Williams was again on bad terms with Disney, and Castellaneta was once again recruited to replace him as Genie in the Kingdom Hearts video game series and the House of Mouse TV series. The DVD release for Aladdin has no involvement whatsoever from Williams in the bonus materials, although some of his original recording sessions can be seen. Robin Williams has recently made peace with the Walt Disney Company and in 2009 agreed to be inducted into the Disney hall of fame, designated as a Disney Legend. Stand-up career Robin Williams has done a number of stand-up comedy tours since the early 1970s. Some of his most notable tours include An Evening With Robin Williams (1982), Robin Williams: At The Met (1986) and Robin Williams LIVE on Broadway (2002). The latter broke many long held records for a comedy show. In some cases, tickets were sold out within thirty minutes of going on sale. After a six-year break, in August 2008 Williams announced a brand new 26-city tour titled Weapons of Self Destruction. He was quoted as saying that this was his last chance to make cracks at the expense of the current Bush Administration, but by the time the show was staged only a few minutes covered that subject. The tour started at the end of September 2009, finishing in New York on December 3, and was the subject of an HBO special on December 8, 2009. Controversy Robin Williams gained a reputation for stealing material from other comics to the extent that David Brenner claims that he confronted Williams personally and threatened him with bodily harm if he heard Williams utter another one of his jokes. Personal life Robin Williams first marriage was to Valerie Velardi on June 4, 1978, with whom he has one child, Zachary Pym (Zak) (born April 11, 1983). During Williams first marriage, he was involved in an extramarital relationship with Michelle Tish Carter, a cocktail waitress whom he met in 1984. She sued him in 1986, claiming that he did not tell her he was infected with the herpes simplex virus before he embarked on a sexual relationship with her in the mid-1980s, during which, she said, he transmitted the virus to her. The case was settled out of court. On April 30, 1989, he married Marsha Garces, his sons nanny who was already several months pregnant with his child. They have two children, Zelda Rae (born July 31, 1989) and Cody Alan (born November 25, 1991). However, in March 2008, Garces filed for divorce from Williams, citing irreconcilable differences. During the late 1970s and early 1980s, Williams had an addiction to cocaine; he has since quit. Williams was a close friend and frequent partier alongside John Belushi. He says the death of his friend and the birth of his son prompted him to quit drugs: Was it a wake-up call? Oh yeah, on a huge level. The grand jury helped too. On August 9, 2006, Williams checked himself in to a substance-abuse rehabilitation center (located in Newberg, Oregon), later admitting that he was an alcoholic. His publicist delivered the announcement: After 20 years of sobriety, Robin Williams found himself drinking again and has decided to take proactive measures to deal with this for his own well-being and the well-being of his family. He asks that you respect his and his familys privacy during this time. He looks forward to returning to work this fall to support his upcoming film releases. On August 20, 2007, Williams elder brother, Robert Todd Williams, died of complications from heart surgery performed a month earlier. Williams is a member of the Episcopal Church. He has described his denomination in a comedy routine as Catholic Lite; same rituals, half the guilt. While studying at Juilliard, Williams befriended Christopher Reeve. They had several classes together in which they were the only students, and they remained good friends for the rest of Reeves life. Williams visited Reeve after the horse riding accident that rendered him a quadriplegic, and cheered him up by pretending to be an eccentric Russian doctor (similar to his role in Nine Months). Williams claimed that he was there to perform a colonoscopy. Reeve stated that he laughed for the first time since the accident and knew that life was going to be okay. Health Williams was hospitalized in March 2009 due to heart problems. Williams postponed his one-man tour in order to undergo surgery to replace his aortic valve. The surgery was successfully completed on March 13, 2009, at the Cleveland Clinic. Other interests Williams speaking at the 2008 BBC World Debate Williams is an avid enthusiast of games (even naming his daughter after Princess Zelda from The Legend of Zelda video game series), enjoying pen-and-paper role-playing games and online video games, recently playing Warcraft 3, Day of Defeat, Half-Life, and the first-person shooter Battlefield 2 as a sniper. On January 6, 2006, he performed live at Consumer Electronics Show during Googles keynote. In the 2006 E3, on the invitation of Will Wright, he demonstrated the creature editor of Spore while simultaneously commenting on the creatures look: This will actually make a platypus look good. He also complimented the games versatility, comparing it to Populous and Black & White. Later that year, he was one of several celebrities to participate in the Worldwide Dungeons & Dragons Game Day. Williams has gone on record as a fan of the anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion, and incorporated a scene referencing it in One Hour Photo where he purchases a model kit from it as a gift. A fan of professional road cycling, he was a regular on the US Postal and Discovery Channel Pro Cycling team bus and hotels during the years Lance Armstrong dominated the Tour de France. He owns over 50 bicycles. He also enjoys rugby union and is a big fan of former All Black, Jonah Lomu. Williams is a supporter of eco-friendly vehicles. He currently drives a Toyota Prius, but is on the waiting list to be an early adopter of the Aptera 2-series electric vehicle. Charity work Williams and his former wife, Marsha, founded the Windfall Foundation, a philanthropic organization to raise money for many different charities. Williams devotes much of his energy doing work for charities, including the Comic Relief fund-raising efforts. In December 1999, he sang in French on the BBC-inspired music video of international celebrities doing a cover of the Rolling Stones Its Only Rock & Roll for the charity Childrens Promise. Williams has performed with the USO for U.S. troops stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Filmography Year Film Role Notes 1977 Can I Do It Till I Need Glasses?

HUFFPOST HILL - SEPTEMBER 13TH, 2010
Despite Bob Bennett's grumblings about America's limited understanding of how Congress works, it's becoming increasingly apparent that Congress doesn't really understand how the rest of us work, either. Despite attaining Wilford Brimley-levels of folksiness in his new campaign spot, Chuck Grassley is as connected to the Internet as a 28.8 modem. Harry Reid's new attack ad implies that Sharron Angle's only solution to domestic violence is a little extra concealer. And Democrats are going to resolve tax inequity with Malibu Stacy solutions. But, hey, cheer up everyone! Elizabeth Warren is going to run the CFPB... Maybe! This is HUFFPOST HILL for Monday, September 13th, 2010: ELIZABETH WARREN UNDER CONSIDERATION FOR INTERIM CFPB CHIEF - The White House is considering tapping Elizabeth Warren to be the interim director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a move that would allow her to begin setting up the agency immediately and prevent the GOP from filibustering her nomination, a source familiar with the White House deliberations told HuffPost Hill. Warren could serve until Obama nominates a permanent director -- a nomination he's not required to make, meaning that Warren could serve indefinitely with the full powers of the director. Obama could follow the interim nomination by later naming Warren as the permanent director, giving the Senate an opportunity to debate her selection. The ability of the administration to nominate an acting director indefinitely, avoiding a lengthy confirmation battle, was first reported by HuffPost in July. American Banker is also reporting that Warren is under consideration for the interim position. Simon Johnson laid out the case for an interim nomination on Friday: http://huff.to/9KhZOg DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL GETTING A VOTE - Senate aides say that the Defense authorization bill, that includes the (eventual) repeal of don't ask tell, will get a vote this month. Cloture could be filed by the end of the week, setting up a vote early next week. Some judge was confirmed by the Senate today. A White House spokeswoman gave HuffPost Hill the cell-phone diss, sending us straight to voice mail. But on Friday, PRIMARIES TOMORROW - Some CW, fresh out of the oven: "Both Castle and Fenty probably would be elected in general elections, when all voters can participate and turnout dramatically increases. The closed partisan system -- combined with the rigged system of redistricting -- is making the two parties more polarized and less representative, leading directly to the angry hyper-partisanship that is alienating a growing number of Americans. These two races Tuesday are tests of whether centrist candidates can survive. For the moderate majority of Americans, it's time to give a damn and take a stand." CNN: http://bit.ly/dbwQZK Mike Castle: "Bottom line is, if she's nominated, Republicans lose the election automatically." http://bit.ly/ajtDhT ABC News on the New Hampshire GOP Senate primary: "Former state Attorney General Kelly Ayotte, a darling of the party establishment and one of Palin's "mama grizzlies," has been the steady frontrunner. But a flurry of late-race attack ads and high-profile endorsements of her opponents may have Ayotte in trouble...But Tea Party groups, the state's largest newspaper -- the Union Leader -- and prominent conservative Sen. Jim DeMint see a different candidate as the "true conservative" in the race. They've endorsed Ovide Lamontagne, the former gubernatorial candidate running a shoestring campaign, who has surged in recent weeks to become the latest Tea Party threat to an establishment-backed candidate." http://bit.ly/b8JAtc HuffPost New York with a preview of the Empire State primaries, including Carolyn Maloney's tougher-than-usual fight against Reshma Saujani and the GOP gubernatorial showdown: http://huff.to/dCNojn PAGING CHOMSKY: TOP DEMS TRYING TO REBRAND TAX CUTS - In an attempt to drum up support for letting George W. Bush's tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans expire -- and apparently taking a page from the "But she has a new hat!" playbook -- leading Democrats are coalescing around an idea to call their tax proposal the...drum roll please..."Obama tax cuts for the middle class." "President Obama and the Democrats want to implement the `Obama tax cuts for the middle class.' It provides a nice contrast between what the current administration is proposing and what Republicans did in the past," a senior leadership aide told Greg Sargent. A Dem aide confirmed to HuffPost Hill http://bit.ly/aN54Tg SENATE GOP NOT BUDGING IN TAX BATTLE - Thanks in part to Joe Lieberman, who took a break from planning which Halloween candy he'll serve without wrapping this October to oppose the expiration of the upper-class tax cuts, Mitch McConnell has enough support to oppose anything but a total extension of the Bush tax cuts Obama tax cuts for the middle class AND our-children-our-taking-time-after- college-to-develop-their-T-shirt-line class. Sam Stein: "Adding salt to the wound, there currently exists no avenue for Democrats to pass only a limited extension through reconciliation, the 50-vote budgetary maneuver used to pass the Bush tax cuts in the first place. The budget resolution from last year, a top aide relayed, did not contain a reconciliation instruction for tax policy, only health care and education. As for this year, Congress hasn't passed a budget." http://huff.to/9mB4Ql A report out today from Moodys takes a ShamWow! to trickle-down economics. "Hand the wealthiest Americans a tax cut and history suggests they will save the money rather than spend it. Tax cuts in 2001 and 2003 under President George W. Bush were followed by increases in the saving rate among the rich, according to data from Moody's Analytics Inc. When taxes were raised under Bill Clinton, the saving rate fell. The findings may weaken arguments by Republicans and some Democrats in Congress who say allowing the Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans to lapse will prompt them to reduce their spending, harming the economy." Bloomberg: http://bit.ly/ciQCm2 Stan Collender in Roll Call examines the possibility of a government shutdown next year: "But there are reasons to believe that a government shutdown in 2011 would be just as politically disastrous for Congressional Republicans as before. A shutdown might be great for the GOP base, but it could just as easily turn off the independent voters who are far more critical to election success today than they were in the 1990s." http://bit.ly/cP8TMb GOP WHINES ABOUT CLASS WARFARE IT ALWAYS WINS - Beat your pitchforks, clubs and comically large torches into plowshares, pleads the GOP -- John Boehner: "Instead of resorting to tired old class warfare rhetoric, pitting one working American against another, the president and the Democratic leadership should start working with us this week..." Mike Pence: "We will not compromise our economy to accommodate the class warfare rhetoric of this administration." Jon Kyl: "So we don't want to punish anyone for being successful. That class warfare went out of style when the Cold War ended." Over the summer, Jim McDermott had the temerity to call it "class warfare" when the GOP (plus Ben Nelson) blocked unemployment benefits for 2.5 million people as Kyl and his pals said the benefits just made them lazy anyway. http://huff.to/9VzOYA TOMORROW'S PAPERS TODAY - Roll Call: Anna Palmer on Democratic staffers who are worried about their employment prospects this fall. They have nervously watched as government relations positions on K Street have dried up as the economy continues to falter and lobby shops and corporations hold off on hiring until after the elections to see which party comes out ahead. The Hill: Kevin Bogardus and Silla Brush on how Democratic aides on Capitol Hill might have missed their chance for a big payday, according to head hunters' salary estimates. NBA Hall of Famer Bill Walton will headline an event on the Hill tomorrow entitled "Innovation 101: Technology and Innovation in the Action & Sport Industry." The morning session will be held in 2168 Rayburn at 10:00 am and the afternoon session will be held in 428 Russell at 2:00 pm. A photographer will be on hand to snap pics and Walton will sign autographs. He won't be impressed by your work on that omnibus appropriations act so don't even try. Don't be bashful: Send tips/stories/photos/events/fundraisers/job movement/juicy miscellanea to firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow us on Twitter - @HuffPostHill FREEDOMWORKS NOT ENDORSING DELAWARE TEA PARTIER - Far-right Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell today joined the privileged ranks of Americans too fit for fat camp and too unafraid of sunlight for the University of Phoenix when the Tea Party organization FreedomWorks deemed her unworthy of its support. This, for some reason, isn't a good thing. "We stayed out of that race because we're not convinced that Christine O'Donnell can win," the group's CEO Matt Kibbe told a Christian Science Monitor-hosted breakfast with reporters. However Kibbe -- who was joined by the organization's Chairman and former House Majority Leader Dick Armey -- added that he is none-too-impressed with Mike Castle: "I think the question for Mike Castle is, if he can't win his primary, does he deserve to win the general? And we'll see what happens tomorrow, but it's always a judgment call as to who is the most competitive candidate, and I think the vetting of the primary and what the Tea Party activists have really asked for is an open primary where their candidates get a chance to run and compete and prove themselves, or lose." Amanda Terkel on O'Donnell being kicked off the political short bus: http://huff.to/db6jdN The news comes on the heels of a PPP survey this weekend showing O'Donnell ahead of Mike Castle 47 percent to 44 percent. Mark Blumenthal takes a look under the hood: http://huff.to/bB7nVW Palin robocall for O'Donnell this weekend: "The wave of positive change can really sweep across our land with the election of constitutional conservatives like Christine who promise to use common sense and rein in federal government spending." http://bit.ly/debtW9 TODAY'S TERKEL TAKEDOWN - From Amanda Terkel: "The best takedown of today is by 23-year-old skateboarder Jacob Isom of Amarillo, Texas, who happened to be around when David Grisham of the Christian fundamentalist group Repent Amarillo was about to burn a Quran in a city park on Saturday. Isom swooped in and took the Quran away. 'I snuck up behind [Grisham] and told him, 'Dude, you have no Quran,' and took off,' recalled Isom. He then gave the book to a religious leader from the Islamic Center of Amarillo." http://huff.to/9UDcAd REID CAMPAIGN: SHARRON ANGLE PROBABLY GOOGLE MAPPING DIRECTIONS TO YOUR HOUSE FOR YOUR ABUSIVE SPOUSE RIGHT NOW - The new ad from Harry Reid's campaign highlights Angle's 2001 state assembly vote that it says would have torpedoed a law recognizing restraining orders from other states. "Imagine you've been abused by your spouse. You get a restraining order and move your family to Nevada thinking you'll be safe," the narrator, a handsome young cop that would NEVER DREAM of hurting you, says. "In the state assembly, Sharron Angle voted to prevent restraining orders from other states from being enforced in Nevada. It would have made Nevada a safe haven from domestic abusers. Thankfully other legislators weren't so extreme because Sharron Angle sided with the abuser, not the abused." We have yet to confirm whether Reid will follow-up with a campaign spot attacking Angle for her misguided vote on the "FY 1986 Won't Somebody PLEASE Lend Willie Horton A Few Bucks For An Avis Rental? Appropriations Bill." Sam Stein: http://huff.to/9z2Guc OH YOU THINK CHARLIE CRIST IS DONE WITH THE OBVIOUS METAPHORS? CHARLIE CRIST IS ONLY GETTING STARTED WITH THE OBVIOUS METAPHORS - Last week we reported on Charlie Crist's inaugural campaign ad/live-action SAT question featuring the Florida governor haphazardly rearranging the words "DEMOCRATS" and "REPUBLICANS" to spell "AMERICANS." Well this weekend Crist debuted his second ad, a heartwarming number in which he walks down the beach wistfully gazing at the ocean while lamenting that he has tried all the other online dating sites, but only found happiness once he signed up for match.com and discusses his plans to transcend partisan politics. While elaborating (if you want to call it that) on his plan to cherry-pick the best ideas from each party, Crist -- and now would be a good time for all you creative writing majors to reach for a garbage can -- draws a line in the sand and proceeds to walk across the newly-created coastline fissure. Video: http://bit.ly/d7CgU5 Oh yeah, he actually says "...put people ahead of politics." Yeesh. Chuck Grassley's newest campaign video opens with an elderly woman quietly announcing that the Iowa senator has a "Twitter." "Oh. Can it be...cured?" replies a second woman -- at long last acknowledging that the inane Web 2.0 service is something that needs to be lanced. Grassley chimes in, as folksy "Pepperidge Farm's special ingredient is love" music plays in the background: "Oh, not that kind. I like to use new technologies like Twitter and Facebook, just to keep in touch." He then ads: "I'll tweet. I'll text. I'll do whatever it takes. I work for you." If Grassley doesn't win reelection, he has a great career ahead of him being the spokesman for Life Alert. Gawker: http://bit.ly/cytnLi Sweet Jesus the campaign videos won't stop: John Dennis, the Tea Party candidate challenging Nancy Pelosi this November, has a new, Wizard of Oz-themed ad portraying Nancy Pelosi as the Wicked Witch of the West. The highly stylized ad, from the same director of that infamous Dale Peterson "they don't give a R-I-I-I-P about Alabama" video, features flying IRS monkeys, a bodiless Hank Paulson wizard and the candidate himself splashing water on the Pelosi witch. Most importantly, the ad answers the question of what a conservative candidate is to do if attacking San Francisco values is bad politics. Dave Weigel: http://bit.ly/9Hmvap BOB BENNETT: PUBLIC HAS NO IDEA HOW CONGRESS WORKS - In an "exit" interview posted by NBC News this morning, the outgoing Utah Republican decried the citizenry's ignorance about the nuts-and-bolts of legislating. "They have no understanding of what we do. They expect that we spend most of our time on the Senate floor debating," Bennett said. "The image of Webster and Calhoun and Clay changing the course of the Republic with a brilliant speech is still in their minds. Particularly since the advent of television in the chamber, Senate speeches are more and more irrelevant." How is it that the public is familiar with Daniel Webster, John C. Calhoun and Henry Clay but not, say, the hyper-politicization of modern day lawmaking? We applaud Senator Bennett for daring to envision a Rockwellian society whose citizens offset their "Meet The Kardashians" marathons with Ken Burns "Muh Dearest Caroline, I write you this letter, weary from war and torn asunder from within" specials but...really? http://bit.ly/cjlJfT A number of civil rights activists are protesting this year's U.S. Commission on Civil Rights national conference, accusing the group of going soft. "The USCCR, established in 1957 as a bulwark against racial discrimination against African-Americans, has historically been associated with a pro civil rights agenda. But under the presidency of George W. Bush, conservatives who had long opposed the commission's work were able to stack the commission with like-minded commissioners, who took the agency in a different direction -- including focusing much of its work on instances of reverse racism." TPM: http://bit.ly/9rumOm Bad reviews for Meghan: "It is impossible to read Dirty, Sexy Politics and come away with the impression that you have read anything other than the completely unedited ramblings of an idiot. This being a professional website for which I have a great deal of respect, I searched for a more eloquent or gentle way to accurately phrase the previous sentence - but could not find one." The New Ledger: http://bit.ly/9gi4au JEREMY THE INTERN'S WEATHER REPORT - Tonight: . A high pressure system rolling in from the West will bring some warmer, drier winds that will ease the area's transition to fall. Yes, fall is coming. It's a fact of life, and should be accepted. Tomorrow: Expect it to stay this warm and sunny throughout the day tomorrow, as well. Thanks, JB! It's the peak of the hurricane season. Everyone's talking about Hurricane Igor, and with good reason. He is on the verge of becoming a category 5 hurricane, with winds of 150 miles per hour. We can expect that Hurricane Igor will re-intensify within the next two days. With the storm taking dead aim at the Bermuda. The second storm, tropical storm Julia, which looks to be heading to hurricane-dom. This storm, like Danielle earlier this season, is taking a quick northward track, which should keep it away from landfall. The third storm, not yet named, could become a problem. Unnamed as of now, it's a tropical low sitting directly south of Jamaica. It's a storm that has not been organized, and may not strengthen due to dry air surrounding it.Take cover, JB!

HUFFPOST HILL - JULY 20TH, 2010
Even as the Senate cleared a major hurdle in the fight for unemployment benefits and the Judiciary Committee confirmed Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court, the media today seemed to be distracted by slightly more...salacious developments. Some politicos were entranced by Andrew Breitbart's new roll as head of White House personnel. Others by Sharron Angle's ongoing efforts to spread word about our country's demise. One particularly zealous commentator just wants to punch Alan Grayson in the face. We'll be back tomorrow for the House unemployment vote and the signing of Wall Street reform into law...assuming we finish our Mike Mullen portrait in time. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Tuesday, July 20th, 2010: SENATE NEARING PASSAGE OF UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS EXTENSIONS, REPUBLIC IN TACT...FOR NOW - After weeks of hold-ups, the Senate finally ended the filibuster of the long-awaited unemployment aide package 60-40, only hours after lawyer/Oakley sunglasses model Carte Goodwin was sworn in as West Virginia's newest senator. Ben Nelson was the only Democrat to vote against the bill while Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe broke ranks and supported the measure. A final vote is expected shortly. Applause erupted in the Senate chamber after the clerk read out Goodwin's "aye" vote to invoke cloture. Arthur Delaney: "The great debate pitting deficit reduction against jobless aid is over -- until November, when it is certain to return. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Monday that the president would push for an additional extension of benefits when the current one expires shortly after the mid-term congressional elections." http://huff.to/c6N803 The bill will be taken up by the House tomorrow and is expected to be signed by the president this week. Tough POTUS statement: "After a partisan minority blocked this critical aid to our nation's families three separate times, the Senate has moved forward on restoring benefits to the 2.5 million Americans whose livelihood has been held hostage by obstruction and game playing over the past weeks." OBAMA TO MOVE QUICKLY ON CONSUMER AGENCY CHIEF, TREASURY OFFICIAL SAYS - "U.S. President Barack Obama will move 'fairly quickly' to choose a head for the new Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection, Deputy Treasury Secretary Neal Wolin said on Tuesday...'We are identifying possible candidates,' Wolin told a news briefing on implementation of the legislation." Reuters: http://bit.ly/dfsYZA Labor is lining up behind Elizabeth Warren for the position. Sam Stein: "On Tuesday, SEIU President Mary Kay Henry will 'raise the point that Elizabeth Warren would be an excellent head of the newly created Consumer Protection Agency' in private talks with Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, according to a senior source with the union. The tete-a-tete adds an element of intrigue into the debate over who should head the new, but important agency, and could set up a now-familiar scenario in which the labor community finds itself butting heads with the White House's economic team." http://huff.to/am8o6z Sam Stein also notes that at-risk Dem Mary Joe Kilroy's endorsement of Warren signals the electoral potency of the consumer protection issue. http://huff.to/cDUiqj Word comes to HuffPost Hill that Jackie Speier will endorse Warren in a HuffPost blog post. DAILY DELANEY DOWNER - Arthur is en route to Las Vegas but he'd probably want us to mention Greg Sargent's item highlighting Richard Burr and Wisconsin Senate candidate Ron Johnson's recent statements that unemployment benefits discourage individuals from finding work. Burr on CSPAN in March: "The wrong thing to do is to automatically today extend unemployment for 12 months. I think that's a discouragement to individuals that are out there to actually go out and go through the interviews." And Johnson in an interview last month with Wisconsin Public Television: "When you continue to extend unemployment benefits, people really don't have the incentive to go take other jobs. They'll just wait the system out until their benefits run out, then they'll go out and take, probably not as high paying jobs as they'd like to take, but that's really how you have to get back to work." This argument, according to economists across the political spectrum, is completely false. http://bit.ly/aSRyTn DEMS TO MEET ON ENERGY AND CLIMATE THURSDAY - The Hill: "Senate Democrats are gathering Thursday to see if they can get closer to determining details and a strategy for moving a climate and energy plan that may hit the floor next week...That includes when he will bring a climate and energy strategy to the Senate floor and whether it will include a first-time carbon-pricing plan for power plants. Two leading senators working on such a plan -- John Kerry (D-Mass.) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) -- on Tuesday said they need more time to work out a deal with utility companies." http://bit.ly/cT4GzU Organizers of this week's Republican Senate caucus meeting screened a video featuring the two things respectively older and less funny than the attendees themselves: Looney Tunes and Jay Leno. The clip, which included quips from Leno about the economy spliced in between the cartoon's iconic opening and closing sequences, was intended to highlight Democratic infighting and Republican concern for the economy. Check it out here: http://bit.ly/90GQ4w 'DON'T ASK DON'T TELL' SURVEY BREACHED BY ACTIVIST - John Aravosis, a gay rights activist and founder of AmericaBlog, says he was "able to get three different PIN numbers" to gain access to an online chat portion of the DoD's survey. DAVID CAMERON VISITS WHITE HOUSE - Even before he touched down in the States, the British PM already found himself linked to America's two favorite things: BP and terrorism. "British Prime Minister David Cameron said the Scottish government 'had no business' releasing the Lockerbie bomber from prison, but said that he would not stage an inquiry into British Petroleum's involvement in Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi's return to his native Libya. Standing next to President Obama during the leaders' first joint press conference, Cameron also urged against prejudging BP's interference in the case, stressing the company's job-creating role in his country and his host's." MSNBC: http://bit.ly/abJbmH Via Lynn Sweet, the menu at Obama and Cameron's lunch: http://bit.ly/9RJLuw SPEAKING OF WHICH, Hari Sevugan at the DNC is enjoying a good laugh at Sharron Angle's latest press release, "Angle Goes On Offence with New TV Ad; "We're Just Getting Started" http://bit.ly/byy2Lk Sevugan writes to HuffPost Hill: "After playing defence for so long, we know that she had high hopes for her new communications team to take her on offence. And while it's possible that they simply were trying to honour the visit of the British PM, we suspect they will be criticised for this latest flub nonetheless and it will unfavourably colour her campaign despite their labours." TOMORROW'S PAPERS TODAY - Washington Post: David Ignatius examines The Post's "Top Secret America" series on the U.S. intelligence community and contemplates what we are to learn from the investigation. The Hill: Molly K. Hooper on House Republicans, after failing to win elections in recent years by attacking Nancy Pelosi, are vowing to concentrate more on policy differences this election year. Roll Call: Jennifer Bendery on how President Barack Obama's effort to close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, has been all but forgotten on Capitol Hill, and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer acknowledges that the urgency has subsided as other issues have grabbed lawmakers' attention.

Follow us on Twitter - @HuffPostHill KAGAN CONFIRMED BY JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, GRAHAM VOTES IN FAVOR - Confessed New Yorker and holder of opinions Elena Kagan (D - Riverside Drive) cleared the first of two very low hurdles today on her way to the high court. The final vote was 13-6 with Lindsey Graham joining the committee's 12 Democrats. "It puts upon me a standard that stood the test of time is the person qualified? Is it a person of good character? Are they someone that understands the difference between being a judge and a politician? And, quite frankly, I think she's passed all those tests," Graham said before casting his vote for the solicitor general. http://huff.to/daRbb1 Noted by First Read: "[A]t this moment, residents of five states -- well over 50 million Americans -- are partly represented in the Senate by a lawmaker who has never won a Senate election." http://bit.ly/c4T0BX MANCHIN RUNNING FOR WV SENATE - The morning after West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin and the state legislature hammered out an agreement on a special election to fill Robert Byrd's seat, Manchin announced today that he will run for the seat himself. There will be an August 28th primary and a November 2nd general. The agreement reached last night designates the election as legally distinct from the other general election contests, meaning Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, widely seen as the GOP's best hope for the seat, can run for both her House seat and the Senate opening. http://huff.to/dq4EhY REID UP OVER ANGLE IN NEW POLL - The Public Policy Polling survey finds the majority leader holding a slight lead in his reelection bid,besting Sharron Angle 48% to 46%. "44% of voters in the state like the job [Reid]'s doing while 53% disapprove. That's a good deal better than earlier in the year when his approval was only 36% and 58%...Reid's approval spread within his party is 80/14, compared to 67/27 over the winter...With independents he's still pretty unpopular at 38/60 but that's much improved from the prior standing of 24/68...Only 36% of voters in the state have a favorable opinion of Angle, while 52% see her negatively." http://bit.ly/bAjU26 Angle has released her first positive TV ad of the campaign, warmly telling a crowd that our kids and the very liberties that form the bedrock of our society are at risk. In the spot, in which she appears to be interrupting at a bingo meet, Angle says that "We have a fearful society right now. What they're afraid of is that what we're going to be passing down to our children is not liberty and freedom, but debt and deficit. That's why you and I have an opportunity right now to change the direction of our country." http://bit.ly/cVmfbZ Steny Hoyer, when asked at his pen and pad about whether the Tea Party is racist: "I don't know who the Tea Party is, number one." Lucia Graves: http://huff.to/a68e30 Another poll from PPP has Charlie Crist beating Marco Rubio 35% to 29%. Kendrick Meek, God bless him, finishes a distant third at 17%. With Jeff Greene running, it's Crist 38%, Rubio 29% and Green 13%. http://bit.ly/arMTYg Harry Reid is denying Crist's claim that the majority leader floated the idea of Crist caucusing with the Democrats. "You must be reading somebody's mail other than mine," Reid said today. "I don't know what you're talking about." Politico: http://politi.co/9pl5Qm A prominent Republican talking head wants Alan Grayson to die eat a fist sandwich quickly. Laura Bassett reports that Dan Gainor, a conservative media critic, tweet offered (twoffered?) to pay $100 to anyone who punched the Florida congressman in the face. Grayson told Bassett: "I think he's overlooking something important: I punch back." http://huff.to/czylfU Fiscal austerity at its finest: Roll Call's Jackie Kucinich reports that more than 60 members of the House Republican Conference have yet to pay even half of their assessment to the National Republican Congressional Committee, and they're being called out on a giant dues sheet hanging in the NRCC building. http://bit.ly/aDpvm5 POLITICAL DICTIONARY WORD OF THE DAY - Quorum Call: A procedure used in both houses of Congress to bring to the floor the number of Members of the House or Senate who must be present for it to conduct its business. "Hoping to dish about last night's 'Meet the Kardashians,' Senator Leahy suggested the absence of quorum." http://bit.ly/9fLLMd BREITBART CREATES FAKE CONTROVERSY, WHITE HOUSE BUCKLES - While we were keeping an eye on unemployment extenders today, a veritable brouhaha erupted on cable news and in the Twittersphere over a selectively-edited video leaked by Andrew Breitbart's Big Government website of Department of Agriculture official Shirley Sherrod, telling a NAACP gathering earlier this year that back in the 1980s she did not assist a farmer as much as she could have because the person in question was white. The NAACP quickly denounced Sherrod and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack soon asked, and shortly thereafter received, her resignation. Roland Martin involved himself in some way, also. The whole thing is kind of a mess. Turns out, Sherrod was telling a story about how she overcame an initial prejudice and wound up helping the farmer, forming a life-long bond. Think Progress: "Indeed, the wife of the white farmer in question, 82-year-old Eloise Spooner, confirmed the story and called Sherrod a 'friend for life.' She told CNN that Sherrod 'treated us really good and got us all we could.' 'She's the one I give credit to with helping us save our farm.'" This is also a good time as any to bring back that picture of Tom Vilsack in a Winnie the Pooh costume (via @pareene via Wonkette): http://bit.ly/3Gw1V Maryland might become the second state in the nation to regulate the information candidates share on their social media portals. A committee of state legislators in Maryland have approved a measure requiring candidates to specify certain pieces of information about their campaigns. Baltimore Sun: "Candidates must begin including an authority line -- a declaration of approval that lists their campaign treasurer -- on their official campaign pages on Twitter, Facebook and other social networking sites that have exploded in popularity this election season...Maryland's new rules also provide clarity on what a candidate must do if he or she wants to purchase an online ad with Facebook or Google or another provider." http://bit.ly/dksecV BECAUSE YOU'VE READ THIS FAR - Here's a monkey grooming a cat. http://bit.ly/cyF6QM It's a real race to the bottom in Louisiana: the primary challenger to David Vitter is allegedly sleeping with his stepson's wife. Retired state Supreme Court Justice Chet Traylor, who is running on a family values platform, has allegedly shtupped two married women, one of whom is his stepson's estranged wife. "State Rep. Noble Ellington, D-Winnsboro, said that Traylor was 'significantly involved' in the cause of his divorce from Peggy McDowell, who later married Chet Traylor and became Peggy McDowell Traylor. Noble Ellington said in an interview Monday that Traylor was 'certainly part of the reason' for his divorce from his then wife." http://bit.ly/a6D6m1 Rick Perry wants to inject your daughters with with his evil STD serum, or so alleges a new spot out from the Back to Basics PAC, which insists the Texas governor acted inappropriately by mandating that 11 and 12-year-old girls be vaccinated for HPV, the virus which causes cervical cancer. The group suggests that Perry made the decision after being heavily lobbied by Merck. The proposal was later overturned by the legislature. The spot features the disapproving glances of an actress/housewife, who you know is a responsible parent because she has a terrible haircut and apparently buys her kids bananas. http://bit.ly/9ujgLq The Republican California state legislator who was outed as gay earlier this year after a drunk driving arrest has penned an op-ed calling on his party to adopt a pro-gay rights platform. "Gay people being treated with respect and having the same opportunities for a good life regardless of sexual orientation should not be topics of political debate. How can it possibly be that there is a partisan political divide over equal rights in America?" writes Roy Ashburn, who previously opposed expanding freedoms to LGBT Americans. http://bit.ly/95lRpJ HERE'S YOUR CHANCE TO PAINT ADMIRAL MIKE MULLEN - Concerned citizen and HuffPost Hill reader Kevin sends along an interesting job opening, soliciting applications from artists for the opportunity to paint a portrait of Joint Chiefs Chairman Mike Mullen. "The finished portrait shall be displayed in the 'E' Corridor outside the 'Tank' in the Pentagon," the listing reads.

Scattered thunderstorms will pop up all over the place. Tomorrow: The problem is that the jet stream took a deep dip south before bouncing back up. It causes problems for storms trying to go east. Because the jet stream is north of us, we're going to see hot, sticky weather continue. I've also seen some strong pressure gradients in the Midwest. I think the volatility will reach here in the late afternoon/early evening. Thanks, JB! For our reporters in Vegas: It's going to be really hot, folks. Expect 100+ degree temperatures, but little humidity. It doesn't mean you're not going to sweat, though. Drink lots of fluids during the day (alcohol makes it worse, not better), or stay indoors. No chance of rain. Don't tell us how to live, JB!
