Questions to Ponder

In an effort to provoke thought and discussion, I thought it would be a good idea to throw out some questions to the reading audience tonight. A few questions to ponder on as you drift off to sleep tonight... or tomorrow morning before your first cup of coffee:

  • Has Scott McClellan completely lost his mind? Some people think so, read this excellent post from Daily Kos and judge for yourslef.
  • Should the U.S. listen to Representative John Murtha (D-PA)? The conservative Democrat (huh?) and decorated Vietnam war veteran, who said Thursday, when speaking about the U.S. military, that "It's time for them to come home" from Iraq.
  • What happened to Bob Woodward?
  • Has Cindy Sheehan's 15-minutes passed yet?
  • Can anyone throw a tantrum like former Illinois Governor George Ryan? Read the article and watch the video here.
  • Will relations between the U.S. and China be better or worse after the weekend is over? (I know it was at a Japanese State Dinner, but as long as Dubya doesn't throw-up on anyone, he'll do better than his dad ever did on ANY of his Asian trips)
  • What is the U.S. House and Senate doing with the Patriot Act? What's that? You say you don't know... that's ok, it doesn't sound as though Congress knows what they are doing about it either.
  • Does anyone know that Ben Bernanke's nomination for Fed Chair was approved by the Senate Banking Committee on Wednesday, thus sending it to the full Senate for a final confirming vote? Sort of gotten buried this week, didn't it?

That's all for tonight; ponder them, question them, learn about them, discuss them.

Come on... you know you would rather talk politics with people than go catch Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire at midnight... right... right?

Hello... is anyone out there?
