Today the Obama campaign unveiled “Forward,” a seven-minute video highlighting his campaign strategy for the election:

Similar to the 2008 concept, “Change,” this one-word slogan captures a vague sense of movement without articulating a strategy, end, or principle. The movement this terms evokes is no more than a different state than we’re currently...

Dick Lugar has announced that his campaign will target cell phone users browsing the internet in zip codes where Richard Mourdock events are taking place.

It was those damn meteoric expectations, and the failure of those around him, such as the Secret Service agents who visited prostitutes in Colombia, and soldiers in Afghanistan who killed civilians and burned Korans.

My sense of the talk shows this morning (which I usually don’t listen to but did today) is that the War on Women nonsense is completely dominating the current cycle and will for a long time.
