Lightning Round - 063010

Not a cloud in the sky. Still, there's lightning:
  • Mark Dayton may have lost the crucial support of Satveer Chaudhary, but he's managed to get the endorsements of Bill Luther and Mike Hatch, which is excellent news, because you should never underestimate the importance of the support of politicians who are otherwise long forgotten. He's also working on getting the endorsements of Roger Moe, Ann Wynia, Dee Long and this guy, which should put him over the top. It's likely that he also has Arne Carlson's support.
  • As expected, the pointless kabuki of the Senate hearings for Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan provide very little insight about how she would judge or her relative fitness for a lifetime appointment to the nation's highest court. Being forthright is not allowed. We have learned a fair amount about Al Franken, though.
  • Andrew Breitbart, bless his heart, understands that money talks. And his offer of $100,000 for the archive of the "Journolist" is yet another brilliant publicity stunt. While I'm guessing none of the participants would want to risk their careers by collecting the money, there are any number of enterprising hackers out there who would be happy to pocket 100 large. Meanwhile, the always-enterprising Iowahawk would like a cashier's check. Alas, that last link is NSFW. But it is funny as hell and spot-on.

Franken, the Ribald junior senator from the State of Minnesota. He makes me so proud....

Fess up -- you're a casting director, right Shawn-O? That's perfect!

Al is casting an absentee ballot for Kagan.

You Minnesotans must be so proud of Al. He is such a class act.

Let's be honest about it... He may be a class act, but he is one heck of an illustrator. He's got that going for him! Any bets on whether or not Al could pass a drug test if one he had to take one!

I continue to lack any understanding for why a person's private opinions (such as those on JournList) should compromise their careers. Is this America we're living in?
