Stewart and Colberts rallies somehow scaring Democrats
A lot of people on campus are going. Im planning to attend it, too. Right now I dont think were worried about an effect on GOTV. The rally is Saturday; Halloween is Sunday. Were still going to vote on Tuesday. Georgetown University College Democrats spokespersonWilliam Vogt Suggesting the Democrats worst fears that Jon Stewart and Stephen Colberts dueling rallies will affect get out the vote efforts on the weekend before the election. Dave Weigel, writing about the phenomenon for Slate, seems skeptical. The Democratic panic is out of whack, he writes. Stewarts rally will attract two kinds of people: The liberals who werent going to GOTV anyway, and the liberals who needed this final jolt to reconnect with their elitism. Were with him. Its going to be tough for the Democrats this year, no matter where their voters are on October 30th. source
HUFFPOST HILL - JUNE 28TH, 2010
There are two kinds of days in politics: Serious days and Dale Peterson days. Today was a prime example of the former with matters of grave importance dominating the news, led by the death of Robert Byrd, who served in the Senate for a quarter of its existence. Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee for day one of her confirmation hearing. On John Paul Stevens' last day, the high court handed down two sweeping rulings, striking down gun-control laws and diminishing the reach of hate groups on college campuses. Ah, who are we kidding, there was some Dale Peterson, too. This is HUFFPOST HILL for June 28th, 2010: EXCLUSIVE: NANCY PELOSI ON AFGHANISTAN - Sam Stein: "In some of the strongest terms she has used to date, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared last Friday that the United States will see 'a serious drawdown' of forces in Afghanistan by July 2011 and that the House may use the power of the purse to ensure the drawdown takes place. In an exclusive interview with the Huffington Post, Pelosi made clear that while recent talk has hinted that the administration's stated goal of a June 2011 start date for a troop drawdown may be open to change, her commitment to it remains firm." http://huff.to/avCMLC House Dems block Afghan reconstruction funding. - Dave Obey and Nita Lowey, the chairs of the committee and subcommittee that hold the Afghanistan purse strings, said today they were stripping funding for reconstruction and redevelopment. Lowey cited pervasive corruption in Afghanistan as the cause for her decision to pull the funding from the appropriations bill working its way through her State and Foreign Operations Appropriations Subcommittee. "I do not intend to appropriate one more dime for assistance to Afghanistan until I have confidence that U.S. taxpayer money is not being abused to line the pockets of corrupt Afghan government officials, drug lords and terrorists," said Lowey. The move follows stories in WSJ and WaPo that show billions in cash literally being flown out of Afghanistan and Karzai officials blocking corruptions probes. BYRD'S DEATH MAKES BROWN, CANTWELL KEY TO WALL STREET REFORM - Byrd's absence leaves Dems one vote short of the 60 they had last time around and now Scott Brown may be bailing, trying to have it every which way. The Massachusetts Republican won a Senate special election earlier this year railing against "backroom deals" now he has his very own Bay State Buy Off having secured key exemptions for banks and insurance companies in Massachusetts. His backroom deal secure, Brown is now threatening to vote against the final Wall Street reform bill on the floor. (His spokesman said he may have a statement out later today.) Brown argues that fees and assessments the bill requires banks to pay amount to a tax and that he has vowed never to vote for a tax increase. But without the fees, the bill would increase the deficit. Feingold, American Bankers Association united in opposition - Dems will have to look elsewhere for help on cloture, a 60-vote threshold complicated by the passing of Bob Byrd. Russ Feingold in a statement this afternoon: "As I have indicated for some time now, my test for the financial regulatory reform bill is whether it will prevent another crisis." No bill, of course, could prevent another crisis, but the ABA, at least, had more specific reasons for opposing reform, including the creation of a consumumer financial protection bureau and the regulation of swipe fees. Maria Cantwell, the other Dem to oppose Wall Street reform last time around, is reviewing the bill, her spokesman says. KAGAN CONFIRMATION HEARING BEGINS - A steaming batch of scripted goodness was served up in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing room as both panel members and Elena Kagan issued their opening statements. Ranking member Jeff Sessions previewed his party's line of attack in his remarks, expressing concern over her lack of judicial experience, her decision on military recruitment at Harvard, her college thesis on socialism, her time spent as a political lawyer and her childhood proximity to Central Park. "It's not a coronation, as I've said, but a confirmation process. Serious and substantive questions will be asked.," Sessions told the committee room. http://huff.to/9Bcz7x Not surprisingly, things looked peachier to Pat Leahy: "There is no basis to question her integrity and no one should presume that this intelligent woman, who has excelled during every part of her varied and distinguished career, lacks independence." Kagan, in her opening statement: "I will make no pledges this week other than this one, that if confirmed, I will remember and abide by all these lessons. I will listen hard to every party before the court and to each of my colleagues. I will work hard, and I will do my best to consider every case impartially, modestly, with commitment to principle and in accordance with law." Sam Stein: "...the most noteworthy element seems to be the potential for friction between conservative activists looking for a fight and the elected GOP, which will protest in voice but not vote." http://huff.to/cZRV40 Thurgood Marshall becoming the major boogeyman. Sen. Orrin Hatch on MSNBC: "Let's admire the man for the great things he did, but let's not walk over and wipe out the things that really didn't make sense as an obedient student of the practice of law," adding there was "no doubt he was an activist judge." Later, Thomas Burr of the Salt Lake Tribune tracked down Hatch to ask whether he'd have voted for Marshall. "Well, its hard to say," Hatch said. http://bit.ly/bNCoBn ROBERT BYRD DEAD AT 92 - Byrd's successor will be appointed by West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin, a Democrat. Whoever is appointed will have to run in a special election before Byrd's term expires on January 3, 2013. Manchin might be eyeing the seat, himself. While the West Virginia governor has said he will not appoint himself to the post, observers indicate that he is eying the seat for 2012. http://huff.to/aaWIee Chris Matthews, noting today that the governor will appoint a Democrat, slips up, inserting both a Freudian and a mathematical error into the same sentence: "It's not going to affect Carter's 60 votes." Daniel Inouye was sworn in this afternoon as Senate President Pro Tem. The mostly honorary position, which puts the Hawaii senator third in the presidential line of succession, is bestowed on the Senate's longest serving member. Inouye was elected in 1962. Less honorary, however, is Inouye's chairmanship of the Appropriations Committee, which he took over from Robert Byrd in 2009. "I'm the No. 1 earmarks guy in the U.S. Congress," he said last year. Congrats, dude third in line for the presidency! http://bit.ly/a4HI7A SOME OF OUR FAVORITE BYRD MOMENTS - Robert Byrd opposing the invasion of Iraq: http://huff.to/9AqzZy.

With Byrd gone, will the Senate allow laptops on the Senate floor? Hooray! Sen. Frank Lautenberg, now the oldest senator at 86, announced that he has fully recovered from cancer. The New Jersey senator, who was diagnosed with a form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in February, made the announcement Saturday at the Garden State Equality Legends Dinner in Maplewood, NJ. http://huff.to/aXabb6 Fed Economist: "Economics is Hard. Don't Let Bloggers Tell You Otherwise" - Seriously. That's the title of a new papery by Kartik Athreya of the Richmond Federal Reserve Bank. He specifically says that "Matthew Yglesias, John Stossel, Robert Samuelson, and Robert Reich... [are] exceedingly unlikely... [to] have anything interesting to say about economic policy." Who'd've thought we'd be agreeing with the Fed? Just kidding, guys. Your stuff is interesting. He also singles out Paul Krugman and Brad Delong, the former of whom won a Nobel Prize in economics. Arthreya talked to HuffPost Hill about the reaction to his paper: "It's mostly negative. People are kind of upset." The paper: http://bit.ly/99Kw18 TOMORROW'S PAPERS TODAY - Washington Post: Eugene Robinson - "Amid what is sure to be a flood of heartfelt encomiums to Sen. Robert Byrd's lifetime of public service, it is important to note that his is a story of change and redemption -- and that Byrd and his party had a shameful past to overcome." http://wapo.st/azUTf6 The Hill: Reporters will tackle the effect Sen. Robert Byrd's death will have on Wall Street reform, earmarks and changing the rules to the filibuster. Roll Call: Bennett Roth writes that business groups, which have not been shy about lobbying on such hot issues as health care and Wall Street reform, are taking a more reticent approach when it comes to Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan. Of the largest business organizations, only the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is expected to take a formal stand on Kagan, whose confirmation hearings began Monday. http://bit.ly/98cTVL SUPREME COURT RULING EXPANDS GUN RIGHTS - The high court ruled in favor of the plantiff 5-4 today in Salt v. Wound (excuse us, McDonald v. City of Chicago). The court found that the second amendment applies at both the state and federal levels. The decision will likely lead to the repeal of stringent gun control laws in Chicago where gun violence has already killed dozens this year. http://huff.to/9m3UgR Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence: "We can expect two things as a result of today's decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in McDonald v. Chicago: the gun lobby and gun criminals will use it to try to strike down gun laws, and those legal challenges will continue to fail." http://bit.ly/cVdQ7U The NRA: "The opinion in McDonald v. City of Chicago brings an end to the nearly 30 year-long handgun ban that the city has imposed on its law-abiding citizens." http://bit.ly/cQpLl2 The high court also ruled that public universities can deny funding to groups they deem discriminatory. AP: "The court turned away an appeal from the Christian Legal Society, which sued to get funding and recognition from the University of California's Hastings College of the Law. The CLS requires that voting members sign a statement of faith and regards 'unrepentant participation in or advocacy of a sexually immoral lifestyle' as being inconsistent with that faith." http://yhoo.it/ak8Rl3 A bittersweet day for bowtie enthusiasts: It was Justice John Paul Stevens' last day on the bench. The justice told President Obama in April that he intended to retire the day after the court finished its summer business. Stevens ties Justice Stephen Field for the second longest time spent as a Supreme Court justice at 34 years, six months and 11 days. http://bit.ly/anvHNU BOOKMARK THIS: The fantastic Adam Serwer now has his own blog at the American Prospect. Check it out here: http://bit.ly/aIpfip OH HEY, THERE'S STILL AN OIL SPILL - And the total cost of the cleanup effort was raised today to $2.65 billion. AP: "[BP] announced the updated total in a news release Monday. The costs include spill response, containment, relief well drilling, grants to Gulf states, claims paid, and federal costs. BP says it has received more than 80,000 claims and made almost 41,000 payments, totaling more than $128 million. BP says the figure does not include a $20 billion fund for Gulf damages it created this month." http://huff.to/aSFr1O A Russian news outlet is reporting that BP CEO Tony Hayward will resign, a charge which BP strongly denies. http://huff.to/aSlYqa AMERICA, MEET ZOMBIE LINCOLN. ZOMBIE LINCOLN, AMERICA - In Rick Barber's new campaign spot, the GOP candidate for Alabama's 2nd congressional district powwows with a very dour looking Abe Lincoln, who tells him that health care reform (and taxes in general) falls on the same part of the moral bell curve as slavery and the Holocaust. Dale Peterson even makes an appearance. http://bit.ly/9XeASl BECAUSE YOU'VE READ THIS FAR - Here's a mouse riding a surfboard: http://bit.ly/cY3R9R YO, ADRIAN...WTF??? - Mayor Adrian Fenty has backed out of tonight's debate with primary challenger and D.C.

So there's a good chance we get hit with multiple cells. Tomorrow: It should be less humid. Highs will be in the mid-80s, with virtually no chance of rain. The good weather should continue through the week. Thanks, JB! A little bit about that hurricane threatening the Gulf: Everyone welcome Alex, the season's first major threat to the beleaguered region. Alex (nee Tropical Depression One) will certainly strengthen even more, and will become the first hurricane of the year due to unseasonably warm Gulf temperatures. Everyone's hoping that it will continue westward (due to weak "steering winds") and miss the oil spill area. The good news is that a hurricane makes the water cooler, so it will be hard for a storm to form in the region for weeks. I expect Alex to become a category 2 or weak category hurricane before striking Mexico or South Texas. Fingers crossed, JB!

Huffpost hill - september 28th, 2010
Deja vu all over again all over again. Senate Democrats failed to start debate on a jobs bill. A prominent labor official is under scrutiny. Ethics investigations are being politicized. Obama is putting down the Huffington Post. Jim DeMint is being a wet blanket. And Alan Grayson has a peculiar new ad -- an homage to the Wonder Years intro...if the Wonder Years intro was required by Jessica's Law to knock on its neighbors' doors upon moving to town. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Tuesday, September 28th, 2010: SENATE AVOIDS GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN - For all you macro-masochists hoping to see a government shutdown precipitate an economic tailspin before the election, today's 84-14 Senate vote to move forward with a two-month federal budget will come as a cold shower (but not too cold, lest you enjoy it). The tally was actually 83-15 for about two hours, until Lamar Alexander realized he'd voted the wrong way, came back, and switched to a yes. Overall, according to a summary being circulated among Democratic aides, the CR, as it's known, funds the government at a rate $9 billion less than the FY10 budget. Most of those savings come from the Census, with most of the rest coming from the base-closing commission. (An appropriations spokesman cautioned that the summary we got was informal and not final.) SENATE FAILS TO CLEAR HURDLE ON ANTI-OUTSOURCING BILL - Hello and thank you for waiting. My name is Avinash Krishnamma but you can call me Steve. How can I assist you with this HuffPost Hill blurb about the Senate voting today 53 to 45 against beginning debate on a bill that penalizes American companies for employing me? Perhaps this Roll Call article will help you with your query: "Democrats decided to try to bring up the bill late last week to give Members another item to run on this fall.

Tuesday's vote followed a rare Monday night 'live quorum,' which Reid called to try to force a dramatic showdown over the bill."

Byrd, the late Senator from West Virginia." Say wha? "If you die in office your next of kin gets one year salary. It's in the Senate handbook," said a Democratic aide, explaining the expenditure. It was done for Ted Kennedy's family, as well as the family of any other senator who died in office. ANDY STERN UNDER INVESTIGATION - AP: "The FBI and the Labor Department are investigating prominent labor leader Andy Stern in a probe of corruption at the Service Employees International Union, according to two people who have been interviewed by federal agents. The two organized labor officials met with federal agents this summer to answer questions about a six-figure book contract that Stern landed in 2006 and his role in approving money to pay the salary of Alejandro Stephens, a former SEIU leader in California who allegedly performed no work. The title of the book is 'A Country That Works.'" http://bit.ly/bRsQ6i ANDY STERN NOT UNDER INVESTIGATION, SAYS ANDY STERN - "The stories appearing today in the L.A. Times and the on AP are simply false. I have absolutely no reason to believe, and not the slightest indication, that I am being investigated by federal authorities with respect to Alejandro Stephens, or A Country That Works, or for that matter anything else," Stern said in a statement. SEIU spokeswoman Michelle Ringuette tells HuffPost Hill that it was standard practice for Stern to approve Stephens' contract and that Stern did speak with federal investigators in 2009 about Stephens but has been given no indication that he himself is being targeted. Ringuette said that the stories felt like they came from NUHW, a rival union locked in the biggest private sector labor election since the 1940s, battling over more than 40,000 Kaiser workers. NUHW folks deny the charge. A reenactment: http://bit.ly/arfwrL STERN INVESTIGATION CONTEXT - Union officials who've been wary of Stern lately -- he's on the board of a biowarfare company and talking about putting Social Security money into the stock market, after all -- worry that the pressure of the (alleged) investigations will push him further to the right. Stern is a critical vote on Obama's deficit commission and proponents of cutting Social Security hope he can provide progressive cover. The broader labor movement context is the ongoing war on the West Coast over how to organize workers. The Stern news could effect the NUHW election currently underway by mail in ballot. HOUSE REPUBLICANS WANT RANGEL, WATERS INVESTIGATION BEFORE MIDTERMS - In other news, Alex Rodriguez wants a human growth hormone ban to take effect AFTER the World Series. AP: "The House ethics committee has a partisan split over setting trial dates for two prominent Democrats, Charles Rangel of New York and Maxine Waters of California. The five Republicans on the 10-member committee want a trial in October, weeks before the midterm elections. They said in a statement Tuesday that the chairman of the ethics committee, Rep. Zoe Lofgren, a California Democrat, has been stalling. By holding a trial after the elections, Democrats would avoid headlines that could make the party's ethics record a campaign issue. Rangel and Waters have asked the committee to hear their cases as soon as possible." http://bit.ly/a5mENc TOMORROW'S PAPERS TODAY - Roll Call: Two years ago, President Barack Obama rode into the White House on a tide of unprecedented voter enthusiasm, writes Roll Call's Jennifer Bendery.

MANCHIN RUNNING SCARED IN WEST VIRGINIA - With a new Rasmussen poll showing West Virgina governor Joe Manchin trailing John Raese 48 percent to 46 percent in the Mountain State Senate contest, Democratic operatives are clearly taking note of a race that only months ago was considered a shoe-in. A new ad from the DSCC attacks Raese for policy positions it claims are anti-working class. "West Virginia working families, we can do better. And we have to," the narrator declares.

Perhaps more notable than the clips of Grayson frolicking around on a playground is that it is a clear Guche handbag-style knock off of a 2006 campaign spot for Eliot Spitzer. Both ads feature children at play interspersed with talking points written on a chalkboard with the same version of "This Little Light of Mine" playing in the background. Ben Smith: http://politi.co/9uuFhq Alan Grayson, who we're convinced is actually engaged in some Joaquin Phoenix-style performance art, is getting beaten up for quoting his opponent, Dan Webster, out of context in his recent ad. He clearly did. But does Webster want to have an extended debate about his religious views? He's an ardent member of the very weird Institute in Basic Life Principles, founded by Rev. Bill Gothard. Time magazine quoted Gothard's advice to women in 1974 as: "God, thank you for this beating." http://bit.ly/c1uoBv Scott McAdams' new ad portrays the Sitka mayor as a working class stiff and touts his work experience as a deckhand in the Bering Sea.

HUFFPOST HILL - JUNE 28TH, 2010
There are two kinds of days in politics: Serious days and Dale Peterson days. Today was a prime example of the former with matters of grave importance dominating the news, led by the death of Robert Byrd, who served in the Senate for a quarter of its existence. Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee for day one of her confirmation hearing. On John Paul Stevens' last day, the high court handed down two sweeping rulings, striking down gun-control laws and diminishing the reach of hate groups on college campuses. Ah, who are we kidding, there was some Dale Peterson, too. This is HUFFPOST HILL for June 28th, 2010: EXCLUSIVE: NANCY PELOSI ON AFGHANISTAN - Sam Stein: "In some of the strongest terms she has used to date, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared last Friday that the United States will see 'a serious drawdown' of forces in Afghanistan by July 2011 and that the House may use the power of the purse to ensure the drawdown takes place. In an exclusive interview with the Huffington Post, Pelosi made clear that while recent talk has hinted that the administration's stated goal of a June 2011 start date for a troop drawdown may be open to change, her commitment to it remains firm." http://huff.to/avCMLC House Dems block Afghan reconstruction funding. - Dave Obey and Nita Lowey, the chairs of the committee and subcommittee that hold the Afghanistan purse strings, said today they were stripping funding for reconstruction and redevelopment. Lowey cited pervasive corruption in Afghanistan as the cause for her decision to pull the funding from the appropriations bill working its way through her State and Foreign Operations Appropriations Subcommittee. "I do not intend to appropriate one more dime for assistance to Afghanistan until I have confidence that U.S. taxpayer money is not being abused to line the pockets of corrupt Afghan government officials, drug lords and terrorists," said Lowey. The move follows stories in WSJ and WaPo that show billions in cash literally being flown out of Afghanistan and Karzai officials blocking corruptions probes. BYRD'S DEATH MAKES BROWN, CANTWELL KEY TO WALL STREET REFORM - Byrd's absence leaves Dems one vote short of the 60 they had last time around and now Scott Brown may be bailing, trying to have it every which way. The Massachusetts Republican won a Senate special election earlier this year railing against "backroom deals" now he has his very own Bay State Buy Off having secured key exemptions for banks and insurance companies in Massachusetts. His backroom deal secure, Brown is now threatening to vote against the final Wall Street reform bill on the floor. (His spokesman said he may have a statement out later today.) Brown argues that fees and assessments the bill requires banks to pay amount to a tax and that he has vowed never to vote for a tax increase. But without the fees, the bill would increase the deficit. Feingold, American Bankers Association united in opposition - Dems will have to look elsewhere for help on cloture, a 60-vote threshold complicated by the passing of Bob Byrd. Russ Feingold in a statement this afternoon: "As I have indicated for some time now, my test for the financial regulatory reform bill is whether it will prevent another crisis." No bill, of course, could prevent another crisis, but the ABA, at least, had more specific reasons for opposing reform, including the creation of a consumumer financial protection bureau and the regulation of swipe fees. Maria Cantwell, the other Dem to oppose Wall Street reform last time around, is reviewing the bill, her spokesman says. KAGAN CONFIRMATION HEARING BEGINS - A steaming batch of scripted goodness was served up in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing room as both panel members and Elena Kagan issued their opening statements. Ranking member Jeff Sessions previewed his party's line of attack in his remarks, expressing concern over her lack of judicial experience, her decision on military recruitment at Harvard, her college thesis on socialism, her time spent as a political lawyer and her childhood proximity to Central Park. "It's not a coronation, as I've said, but a confirmation process. Serious and substantive questions will be asked.," Sessions told the committee room. http://huff.to/9Bcz7x Not surprisingly, things looked peachier to Pat Leahy: "There is no basis to question her integrity and no one should presume that this intelligent woman, who has excelled during every part of her varied and distinguished career, lacks independence." Kagan, in her opening statement: "I will make no pledges this week other than this one, that if confirmed, I will remember and abide by all these lessons. I will listen hard to every party before the court and to each of my colleagues. I will work hard, and I will do my best to consider every case impartially, modestly, with commitment to principle and in accordance with law." Sam Stein: "...the most noteworthy element seems to be the potential for friction between conservative activists looking for a fight and the elected GOP, which will protest in voice but not vote." http://huff.to/cZRV40 Thurgood Marshall becoming the major boogeyman. Sen. Orrin Hatch on MSNBC: "Let's admire the man for the great things he did, but let's not walk over and wipe out the things that really didn't make sense as an obedient student of the practice of law," adding there was "no doubt he was an activist judge." Later, Thomas Burr of the Salt Lake Tribune tracked down Hatch to ask whether he'd have voted for Marshall. "Well, its hard to say," Hatch said. http://bit.ly/bNCoBn ROBERT BYRD DEAD AT 92 - Byrd's successor will be appointed by West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin, a Democrat. Whoever is appointed will have to run in a special election before Byrd's term expires on January 3, 2013. Manchin might be eyeing the seat, himself. While the West Virginia governor has said he will not appoint himself to the post, observers indicate that he is eying the seat for 2012. http://huff.to/aaWIee Chris Matthews, noting today that the governor will appoint a Democrat, slips up, inserting both a Freudian and a mathematical error into the same sentence: "It's not going to affect Carter's 60 votes." Daniel Inouye was sworn in this afternoon as Senate President Pro Tem. The mostly honorary position, which puts the Hawaii senator third in the presidential line of succession, is bestowed on the Senate's longest serving member. Inouye was elected in 1962. Less honorary, however, is Inouye's chairmanship of the Appropriations Committee, which he took over from Robert Byrd in 2009. "I'm the No. 1 earmarks guy in the U.S. Congress," he said last year.

The good weather should continue through the week. Thanks, JB! A little bit about that hurricane threatening the Gulf: Everyone welcome Alex, the season's first major threat to the beleaguered region. Alex (nee Tropical Depression One) will certainly strengthen even more, and will become the first hurricane of the year due to unseasonably warm Gulf temperatures. Everyone's hoping that it will continue westward (due to weak "steering winds") and miss the oil spill area. The good news is that a hurricane makes the water cooler, so it will be hard for a storm to form in the region for weeks. I expect Alex to become a category 2 or weak category hurricane before striking Mexico or South Texas. Fingers crossed, JB!

HUFFPOST HILL - JUNE 28TH, 2010
There are two kinds of days in politics: Serious days and Dale Peterson days. Today was a prime example of the former with matters of grave importance dominating the news, led by the death of Robert Byrd, who served in the Senate for a quarter of its existence. Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee for day one of her confirmation hearing. On John Paul Stevens' last day, the high court handed down two sweeping rulings, striking down gun-control laws and diminishing the reach of hate groups on college campuses. Ah, who are we kidding, there was some Dale Peterson, too. This is HUFFPOST HILL for June 28th, 2010: EXCLUSIVE: NANCY PELOSI ON AFGHANISTAN - Sam Stein: "In some of the strongest terms she has used to date, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared last Friday that the United States will see 'a serious drawdown' of forces in Afghanistan by July 2011 and that the House may use the power of the purse to ensure the drawdown takes place. In an exclusive interview with the Huffington Post, Pelosi made clear that while recent talk has hinted that the administration's stated goal of a June 2011 start date for a troop drawdown may be open to change, her commitment to it remains firm." http://huff.to/avCMLC House Dems block Afghan reconstruction funding. - Dave Obey and Nita Lowey, the chairs of the committee and subcommittee that hold the Afghanistan purse strings, said today they were stripping funding for reconstruction and redevelopment. Lowey cited pervasive corruption in Afghanistan as the cause for her decision to pull the funding from the appropriations bill working its way through her State and Foreign Operations Appropriations Subcommittee. "I do not intend to appropriate one more dime for assistance to Afghanistan until I have confidence that U.S. taxpayer money is not being abused to line the pockets of corrupt Afghan government officials, drug lords and terrorists," said Lowey. The move follows stories in WSJ and WaPo that show billions in cash literally being flown out of Afghanistan and Karzai officials blocking corruptions probes. BYRD'S DEATH MAKES BROWN, CANTWELL KEY TO WALL STREET REFORM - Byrd's absence leaves Dems one vote short of the 60 they had last time around and now Scott Brown may be bailing, trying to have it every which way. The Massachusetts Republican won a Senate special election earlier this year railing against "backroom deals" now he has his very own Bay State Buy Off having secured key exemptions for banks and insurance companies in Massachusetts. His backroom deal secure, Brown is now threatening to vote against the final Wall Street reform bill on the floor. (His spokesman said he may have a statement out later today.) Brown argues that fees and assessments the bill requires banks to pay amount to a tax and that he has vowed never to vote for a tax increase. But without the fees, the bill would increase the deficit. Feingold, American Bankers Association united in opposition - Dems will have to look elsewhere for help on cloture, a 60-vote threshold complicated by the passing of Bob Byrd. Russ Feingold in a statement this afternoon: "As I have indicated for some time now, my test for the financial regulatory reform bill is whether it will prevent another crisis." No bill, of course, could prevent another crisis, but the ABA, at least, had more specific reasons for opposing reform, including the creation of a consumumer financial protection bureau and the regulation of swipe fees. Maria Cantwell, the other Dem to oppose Wall Street reform last time around, is reviewing the bill, her spokesman says. KAGAN CONFIRMATION HEARING BEGINS - A steaming batch of scripted goodness was served up in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing room as both panel members and Elena Kagan issued their opening statements. Ranking member Jeff Sessions previewed his party's line of attack in his remarks, expressing concern over her lack of judicial experience, her decision on military recruitment at Harvard, her college thesis on socialism, her time spent as a political lawyer and her childhood proximity to Central Park. "It's not a coronation, as I've said, but a confirmation process. Serious and substantive questions will be asked.," Sessions told the committee room. http://huff.to/9Bcz7x Not surprisingly, things looked peachier to Pat Leahy: "There is no basis to question her integrity and no one should presume that this intelligent woman, who has excelled during every part of her varied and distinguished career, lacks independence." Kagan, in her opening statement: "I will make no pledges this week other than this one, that if confirmed, I will remember and abide by all these lessons. I will listen hard to every party before the court and to each of my colleagues. I will work hard, and I will do my best to consider every case impartially, modestly, with commitment to principle and in accordance with law." Sam Stein: "...the most noteworthy element seems to be the potential for friction between conservative activists looking for a fight and the elected GOP, which will protest in voice but not vote." http://huff.to/cZRV40 Thurgood Marshall becoming the major boogeyman. Sen. Orrin Hatch on MSNBC: "Let's admire the man for the great things he did, but let's not walk over and wipe out the things that really didn't make sense as an obedient student of the practice of law," adding there was "no doubt he was an activist judge." Later, Thomas Burr of the Salt Lake Tribune tracked down Hatch to ask whether he'd have voted for Marshall. "Well, its hard to say," Hatch said. http://bit.ly/bNCoBn ROBERT BYRD DEAD AT 92 - Byrd's successor will be appointed by West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin, a Democrat. Whoever is appointed will have to run in a special election before Byrd's term expires on January 3, 2013. Manchin might be eyeing the seat, himself. While the West Virginia governor has said he will not appoint himself to the post, observers indicate that he is eying the seat for 2012. http://huff.to/aaWIee Chris Matthews, noting today that the governor will appoint a Democrat, slips up, inserting both a Freudian and a mathematical error into the same sentence: "It's not going to affect Carter's 60 votes." Daniel Inouye was sworn in this afternoon as Senate President Pro Tem. The mostly honorary position, which puts the Hawaii senator third in the presidential line of succession, is bestowed on the Senate's longest serving member. Inouye was elected in 1962. Less honorary, however, is Inouye's chairmanship of the Appropriations Committee, which he took over from Robert Byrd in 2009. "I'm the No. 1 earmarks guy in the U.S. Congress," he said last year. Congrats, dude third in line for the presidency! http://bit.ly/a4HI7A SOME OF OUR FAVORITE BYRD MOMENTS - Robert Byrd opposing the invasion of Iraq: http://huff.to/9AqzZy.

The New Jersey senator, who was diagnosed with a form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in February, made the announcement Saturday at the Garden State Equality Legends Dinner in Maplewood, NJ. http://huff.to/aXabb6 Fed Economist: "Economics is Hard. Don't Let Bloggers Tell You Otherwise" - Seriously. That's the title of a new papery by Kartik Athreya of the Richmond Federal Reserve Bank. He specifically says that "Matthew Yglesias, John Stossel, Robert Samuelson, and Robert Reich... [are] exceedingly unlikely... [to] have anything interesting to say about economic policy." Who'd've thought we'd be agreeing with the Fed? Just kidding, guys. Your stuff is interesting. He also singles out Paul Krugman and Brad Delong, the former of whom won a Nobel Prize in economics. Arthreya talked to HuffPost Hill about the reaction to his paper: "It's mostly negative. People are kind of upset." The paper: http://bit.ly/99Kw18 TOMORROW'S PAPERS TODAY - Washington Post: Eugene Robinson - "Amid what is sure to be a flood of heartfelt encomiums to Sen. Robert Byrd's lifetime of public service, it is important to note that his is a story of change and redemption -- and that Byrd and his party had a shameful past to overcome." http://wapo.st/azUTf6 The Hill: Reporters will tackle the effect Sen. Robert Byrd's death will have on Wall Street reform, earmarks and changing the rules to the filibuster. Roll Call: Bennett Roth writes that business groups, which have not been shy about lobbying on such hot issues as health care and Wall Street reform, are taking a more reticent approach when it comes to Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan. Of the largest business organizations, only the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is expected to take a formal stand on Kagan, whose confirmation hearings began Monday. http://bit.ly/98cTVL SUPREME COURT RULING EXPANDS GUN RIGHTS - The high court ruled in favor of the plantiff 5-4 today in Salt v. Wound (excuse us, McDonald v. City of Chicago). The court found that the second amendment applies at both the state and federal levels. The decision will likely lead to the repeal of stringent gun control laws in Chicago where gun violence has already killed dozens this year. http://huff.to/9m3UgR Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence: "We can expect two things as a result of today's decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in McDonald v. Chicago: the gun lobby and gun criminals will use it to try to strike down gun laws, and those legal challenges will continue to fail." http://bit.ly/cVdQ7U The NRA: "The opinion in McDonald v. City of Chicago brings an end to the nearly 30 year-long handgun ban that the city has imposed on its law-abiding citizens." http://bit.ly/cQpLl2 The high court also ruled that public universities can deny funding to groups they deem discriminatory. AP: "The court turned away an appeal from the Christian Legal Society, which sued to get funding and recognition from the University of California's Hastings College of the Law. The CLS requires that voting members sign a statement of faith and regards 'unrepentant participation in or advocacy of a sexually immoral lifestyle' as being inconsistent with that faith." http://yhoo.it/ak8Rl3 A bittersweet day for bowtie enthusiasts: It was Justice John Paul Stevens' last day on the bench. The justice told President Obama in April that he intended to retire the day after the court finished its summer business. Stevens ties Justice Stephen Field for the second longest time spent as a Supreme Court justice at 34 years, six months and 11 days. http://bit.ly/anvHNU BOOKMARK THIS: The fantastic Adam Serwer now has his own blog at the American Prospect.

AP: "[BP] announced the updated total in a news release Monday. The costs include spill response, containment, relief well drilling, grants to Gulf states, claims paid, and federal costs. BP says it has received more than 80,000 claims and made almost 41,000 payments, totaling more than $128 million. BP says the figure does not include a $20 billion fund for Gulf damages it created this month." http://huff.to/aSFr1O A Russian news outlet is reporting that BP CEO Tony Hayward will resign, a charge which BP strongly denies. http://huff.to/aSlYqa AMERICA, MEET ZOMBIE LINCOLN. ZOMBIE LINCOLN, AMERICA - In Rick Barber's new campaign spot, the GOP candidate for Alabama's 2nd congressional district powwows with a very dour looking Abe Lincoln, who tells him that health care reform (and taxes in general) falls on the same part of the moral bell curve as slavery and the Holocaust.

HUFFPOST HILL - SEPTEMBER 28TH, 2010
Deja vu all over again all over again. Senate Democrats failed to start debate on a jobs bill. A prominent labor official is under scrutiny. Ethics investigations are being politicized. Obama is putting down the Huffington Post. Jim DeMint is being a wet blanket. And Alan Grayson has a peculiar new ad -- an homage to the Wonder Years intro...if the Wonder Years intro was required by Jessica's Law to knock on its neighbors' doors upon moving to town. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Tuesday, September 28th, 2010: SENATE AVOIDS GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN - For all you macro-masochists hoping to see a government shutdown precipitate an economic tailspin before the election, today's 84-14 Senate vote to move forward with a two-month federal budget will come as a cold shower (but not too cold, lest you enjoy it). The tally was actually 83-15 for about two hours, until Lamar Alexander realized he'd voted the wrong way, came back, and switched to a yes. Overall, according to a summary being circulated among Democratic aides, the CR, as it's known, funds the government at a rate $9 billion less than the FY10 budget. Most of those savings come from the Census, with most of the rest coming from the base-closing commission. (An appropriations spokesman cautioned that the summary we got was informal and not final.) SENATE FAILS TO CLEAR HURDLE ON ANTI-OUTSOURCING BILL - Hello and thank you for waiting. My name is Avinash Krishnamma but you can call me Steve. How can I assist you with this HuffPost Hill blurb about the Senate voting today 53 to 45 against beginning debate on a bill that penalizes American companies for employing me? Perhaps this Roll Call article will help you with your query: "Democrats decided to try to bring up the bill late last week to give Members another item to run on this fall. The decision to bring up the outsourcing measure came after Democratic leaders decided to put off a debate on extending the Bush-era tax cuts. Tuesday's vote followed a rare Monday night 'live quorum,' which Reid called to try to force a dramatic showdown over the bill." More: http://huff.to/ciZoAj BUDGET INCLUDES $193,400 FOR BOBBY BYRD'S FAMILY - The strangest line item in the summary of the budget extension that is circulating among Dem staff is certainly the last one: "Provides $193,400 for the survivors of Robert C. Byrd, the late Senator from West Virginia." Say wha? "If you die in office your next of kin gets one year salary. It's in the Senate handbook," said a Democratic aide, explaining the expenditure. It was done for Ted Kennedy's family, as well as the family of any other senator who died in office. ANDY STERN UNDER INVESTIGATION - AP: "The FBI and the Labor Department are investigating prominent labor leader Andy Stern in a probe of corruption at the Service Employees International Union, according to two people who have been interviewed by federal agents. The two organized labor officials met with federal agents this summer to answer questions about a six-figure book contract that Stern landed in 2006 and his role in approving money to pay the salary of Alejandro Stephens, a former SEIU leader in California who allegedly performed no work. The title of the book is 'A Country That Works.'" http://bit.ly/bRsQ6i ANDY STERN NOT UNDER INVESTIGATION, SAYS ANDY STERN - "The stories appearing today in the L.A. Times and the on AP are simply false. I have absolutely no reason to believe, and not the slightest indication, that I am being investigated by federal authorities with respect to Alejandro Stephens, or A Country That Works, or for that matter anything else," Stern said in a statement. SEIU spokeswoman Michelle Ringuette tells HuffPost Hill that it was standard practice for Stern to approve Stephens' contract and that Stern did speak with federal investigators in 2009 about Stephens but has been given no indication that he himself is being targeted. Ringuette said that the stories felt like they came from NUHW, a rival union locked in the biggest private sector labor election since the 1940s, battling over more than 40,000 Kaiser workers. NUHW folks deny the charge. A reenactment: http://bit.ly/arfwrL STERN INVESTIGATION CONTEXT - Union officials who've been wary of Stern lately -- he's on the board of a biowarfare company and talking about putting Social Security money into the stock market, after all -- worry that the pressure of the (alleged) investigations will push him further to the right. Stern is a critical vote on Obama's deficit commission and proponents of cutting Social Security hope he can provide progressive cover. The broader labor movement context is the ongoing war on the West Coast over how to organize workers. The Stern news could effect the NUHW election currently underway by mail in ballot. HOUSE REPUBLICANS WANT RANGEL, WATERS INVESTIGATION BEFORE MIDTERMS - In other news, Alex Rodriguez wants a human growth hormone ban to take effect AFTER the World Series. AP: "The House ethics committee has a partisan split over setting trial dates for two prominent Democrats, Charles Rangel of New York and Maxine Waters of California. The five Republicans on the 10-member committee want a trial in October, weeks before the midterm elections. They said in a statement Tuesday that the chairman of the ethics committee, Rep. Zoe Lofgren, a California Democrat, has been stalling. By holding a trial after the elections, Democrats would avoid headlines that could make the party's ethics record a campaign issue. Rangel and Waters have asked the committee to hear their cases as soon as possible." http://bit.ly/a5mENc TOMORROW'S PAPERS TODAY - Roll Call: Two years ago, President Barack Obama rode into the White House on a tide of unprecedented voter enthusiasm, writes Roll Call's Jennifer Bendery. But fast-forward to 2010, and you'll find Obama lambasting those same voters for growing complacent, and Democratic lawmakers are quietly endorsing the far harsher tone ahead of a rough election. The Hill: Some Democrats in the Senate are second-guessing President Obama's proposal to permanently extend the middle-class tax cuts passed under President George W. Bush, Alexander Bolton reports. JIM DEMINT THREATENS TO HOLD UP SENATE, BLOGGERS SCRAMBLING FOR APT STAR WARS/DARTH VADAR ANALOGIES - As for us, we're going to go with "the unblinking, lidless, Vineyard Vines-wearing eye of Sauron." Roll Call: "Sen. Jim DeMint warned his colleagues Monday night that he would place a hold on all legislation that has not been 'hot-lined' by the chamber or has not been cleared by his office before the close of business Tuesday...[I]n a terse e-mail sent to all 100 Senate chiefs of staff Monday evening, Steering Committee Chief of Staff Bret Bernhardt warned that DeMint would place a hold on any legislation that had not been hot-lined or been cleared by his office before the close of business Tuesday." http://bit.ly/aIpA3r Sam Stein reports that this is nothing new: "It is my understanding Jim DeMint has had a standing hold on everything throughout this two year process," Senator Jeff Merkley told Sam today. "When I have had amendments on a couple of occasions, I have been told 'Absolutely, we in the Republican leadership are fine but you are going to have to clear it with Jim DeMint because he has a standing hold on everything.' So I'm not sure this is a real change from what he has been doing." http://huff.to/b0anT3 Dr. No has company: http://politi.co/cE8tF7 ELIZABETH WARREN TOOK MONEY TO TESTIFY AGAINST BANKS WHILE HEADING OVERSIGHT PANEL - Conflicts of interest you can believe in! "Elizabeth Warren, named by President Barack Obama to set up the new consumer finance agency, was paid $90,000 this year to be an expert witness in a class-action lawsuit against some of the biggest U.S. banks. Warren, who at the time she did the work was head of the Congressional Oversight Panel monitoring the $700 billion bank bailout, was retained by a law firm that represents retailers suing credit-card networks Visa Inc. and MasterCard Inc., and banks including Citigroup Inc., Bank of America Corp. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. for alleged antitrust violations in setting card processing rates, her financial disclosure forms show." Bloomberg: http://bit.ly/b0n8m7 DAILY DELANEY DOWNER - From Arthur Delaney, another Senate-served slice of sadness: "Siobhan Kolar can't believe that thousands of jobs, including her own with an unemployment advocacy nonprofit called Chicago Jobs with Justice, are on the Senate's fiscal chopping block....'It's totally unbelievable that 26,000 people won't be getting unemployment in Illinois and will be hitting the pantry line,' said Kolar, who lives in Downers Grove, Ill. She said she worked at nonprofits for the past several years before losing her job in May. 'My kids are 15, 14, 12, and 8. When my 14-year-old heard I was going to get laid off, he said, 'Oh, not again.'"

Read about it here: http://bit.ly/cDmhNz OVER 400 FUNDRAISERS SCHEDULED IN FINAL WEEKS OF LEGISLATING - Because the Capitol Hill Club isn't going to throw itself a party, people. Politico: "But outside the Capitol, in the private rooms of Washington's top steakhouses, political clubs and Capitol Hill townhouse salons, there is an epic money grab under way, with more than 400 fundraisers for House candidates in the two weeks leading up to Friday's congressional adjournment...Even so-called outsiders, such as GOP Senate nominee Joe Miller of Alaska, are getting in on the money grab. Miller has five fundraisers scheduled over a 48-hour period in Washington this week. Democratic House candidates have roughly 130 events this week, and Republican Senate candidates have about 80 total events scheduled during the two-week period ending Friday." http://politi.co/bZw48s FILIBUSTER REFORM OCCUPYING FRESHMAN SENATORS - Sam Stein sends word to HuffPost Hill: "A vocal champion of reforming Senate rules, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) appeared to side on Monday with proposals offered by, among others, Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) which would put the onus for a filibuster on the minority party getting 40 votes as opposed to the majority party finding 60. Speaking at a Center for American Progress forum on procedural reform, Merkley argued that it was 'absolutely impossible to make the Senate any less deliberative than it is at this moment' before suggesting that the chamber change its rules during the start of its next sessions." OBAMA REALLY STUCK ON HUFFPOST - "I could have had a knock-down, drag-out fight on the public option that might have energized you and The Huffington Post, and we would not have health care legislation now." :-( http://bit.ly/cRjZI1 This past May: "Still, if you're someone who only reads the editorial page of The New York Times, try glancing at the page of The Wall Street Journal once in awhile. If you're a fan of Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh, try reading a few columns on the Huffington Post website. It may make your blood boil; your mind may not often be changed. But the practice of listening to opposing views is essential for effective citizenship." :-| http://huff.to/9ctgFD In our dreams: "Have you seen Billy Baldwin's Huffington Post blog entry on NATO expansion in the Balkans? Captivating stuff." :-) Anyway, Mr. President: The public-option fight is over. You won. Can we move on, please? MANCHIN RUNNING SCARED IN WEST VIRGINIA - With a new Rasmussen poll showing West Virgina governor Joe Manchin trailing John Raese 48 percent to 46 percent in the Mountain State Senate contest, Democratic operatives are clearly taking note of a race that only months ago was considered a shoe-in. A new ad from the DSCC attacks Raese for policy positions it claims are anti-working class. "West Virginia working families, we can do better. And we have to," the narrator declares. Video: http://bit.ly/cKZhCY Raese is hitting back, accusing Manchin of supporting environmental regulation and being socially acquainted with Barack Obama. http://bit.ly/b9tbtf ALAN GRAYSON AD RIPS OFF ELIOT SPITZER - Days after unveiling its "Taliban Dan" video, which attacks his opponent Dan Webster's misogynistic policy prescriptions, Alan Grayson's campaign has released a new, less hostile -- but no less weird -- campaign spot. Perhaps more notable than the clips of Grayson frolicking around on a playground is that it is a clear Guche handbag-style knock off of a 2006 campaign spot for Eliot Spitzer. Both ads feature children at play interspersed with talking points written on a chalkboard with the same version of "This Little Light of Mine" playing in the background. Ben Smith: http://politi.co/9uuFhq Alan Grayson, who we're convinced is actually engaged in some Joaquin Phoenix-style performance art, is getting beaten up for quoting his opponent, Dan Webster, out of context in his recent ad. He clearly did. But does Webster want to have an extended debate about his religious views? He's an ardent member of the very weird Institute in Basic Life Principles, founded by Rev. Bill Gothard. Time magazine quoted Gothard's advice to women in 1974 as: "God, thank you for this beating." http://bit.ly/c1uoBv Scott McAdams' new ad portrays the Sitka mayor as a working class stiff and touts his work experience as a deckhand in the Bering Sea. Video of McAdams working on a small fishing boat is overlaid with the candidate discussing his modest beginnings, culminating with the disclaimer "I approve this message because after you've been cursed at in Norwegian, you can take on anyone." The schmaltzy jazz music, combined with McAdams' resemblance to a button man from a 40s gangster movie and the gray, stormy setting make this one of the most Dadaesque campaign ads this season. Dave Weigel: http://bit.ly/bn7EKW Fret no more, Democrats. Mike Dukakis is on the case: "Former Massachusetts Governor Michael S. Dukakis, the failed 1988 presidential nominee, recently visited the White House and delivered his strategy for the midterm elections: pound key precincts across the country with the message that Republicans want to implement the same policies that led to the Great Recession." Boston Herald: http://bit.ly/bYsWoy BECAUSE YOU'VE READ THIS FAR - World War One will end on Sunday. That's nice. http://bit.ly/azy6eW YOUR FRIENDLY, NEIGHBORHOOD LGBT RIGHTS UPDATE - Congress.org reports that a schism has emerged between grassroots LGBT activists and the Human Rights Campaign. "The split has only grown in the months since, with activists such as [Dan] Choi staging aggressive, low-budget protests to pressure key Democratic leaders, while the Human Rights Campaign has worked quietly behind the scenes in meetings with some of the very same politicians. The tension between those two radically different approaches came to a head last week when Senate Republicans successfully filibustered an attempt to repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell...It could also change the face of the movement, widening a split between more aggressive advocacy and inside-the-Beltway lobbying--a rift that has happened to a number of other social movements in U.S. history." http://bit.ly/bVX9Hf The much-maligned Human Rights Campaign is teaming up with the Courage Campaign to launch a new web venture, NOMexposed.com, that tracks the enlightened activity of the National Organization for Marriage. http://bit.ly/dlChl5 JIMMY CARTER HOSPITALIZED, DOING FINE - "Former President Jimmy Carter is hospitalized in Cleveland after his plane was met by paramedics there when he complained that he did not feel well. Carter had an upset stomach and was taken to Metro Health Hospital "for observation," his spokesperson, Deanna Congileo, said. Carter has been traveling to promote his new book, 'White House Diary.' 'He is resting comfortably and is expected to resume his book tour this week,' Congileo said." AJC: http://bit.ly/cDLLbV Obama likes "gangster" rap. Fox News is intrigued. Anyone happy to keep their lunch in their stomach should avoid the comments. http://bit.ly/cNS7iD RAHM EMANUEL WOULD LIKE HIS %@#$^% HOUSE BACK - The Chicago Sun Times reports that the potentially outgoing White House chief of staff won't be able to return to his Chicago home if he runs for mayor of Chicago. Lynn Sweet: "White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel--expected to step down this week to launch a run for mayor of Chicago--tried and failed to persuade his tenant in his Chicago home to move out so Emanuel could move back in, reports my Sun-Times colleague Michael Sneed...Emanuel rented his North Side Chicago home from Sept. 1, 2009 to Sept. 1, 2010--and signed an extension until June, 2011 just six days before Daley announced on Sept. 7 that he would not seek another term." http://bit.ly/b8mj1S JEREMY THE INTERN'S WEATHER REPORT - Tonight: The bad weather has more or less cleared the area.
