Nate Silver, soon to be blogging at The New York Times, is not waiting for The Daily Caller to expose more e-mails from the Journolist, in which Silver participated.

The latest meme being pushed is that Sarah Palin somehow, someway, compared Obama to Hitler. Think Progress started it off with:

Palin encourages followers to read column warning that the BP escrow fund could lead to a Nazi-like dictatorship

The spinning for Harry Reid is in full throttle.

The meme is changing — according to Democratic insiders! — from one of doomed Harry Reid to Harry Reid the survivor:

Greg Sargent of The Plum Line blog now blogs under the banner of The Washington Post, a recognition of his status as one of the premier, and normally more reasonable, left-wing bloggers.
