U.S. Recruiters Reportedly Admitting Neo-Nazis to Military

Need more evidence that our military is stretched too thin? Its ranks reportedly are now being filled with the kind of military ambassadors particularly unsuited to the task of winning foreign hearts and minds.

Lieberman’s Internet Outreach: So Web 1.0 It’s Frightening

Want to see everything you need to know about how hopelessly out of touch Sen. Joe Lieberman is with the next generation of voters? Check out his campaign website, then check out the site of challenger Ned Lamont:

  • Immediately after the candidates’ Thursday night debate, Lamont’s site was jam-packed with video highlights, media reactions, blogger coverage and fact-checked responses to Lieberman’s charges. Lieberman’s site, however, barely even mentions the debates; there’s nary a blog; and his “news” page hasn’t been updated since Monday. (Update: 12 hours after the debate, the campaign posted a few paragraphs—but that’s it.) It’s such a tone-deaf approach you have to wonder who’s minding the shop over there.

    Bush, Pleasing God by Skipping Briefings on Sunday

    In a mostly softball interview with Larry King Thursday night, President Bush said that he doesn’t get intelligence briefings on Sunday. (Presumably because that’s the day the Lord takes a break from those updates, too.)

    Lamont and Lieberman Go Toe to Toe in Debate

    Conn. businessman Ned Lamont, who in the polls is closing in fast on Joe Lieberman, forced the three-term senator in a debate Thursday night to defend his strong support for President Bush over the Iraq war, in addition to charging that Lieberman has made his bed in Congress with lobbyists and special interest groups.
    A few elbows were thrown.

  • Video highlights
  • Individual video clips of each exchange
  • MSNBC Host: Lieberman used GOP talking points (he even channeled Reagan).
  • Lamont blog with media reactions, fact-checking and blogger coverage
  • Point of interest: One of the main blogs featured on Lamont’s site is My Left Nutmeg.
  • President Bush (interviewed before the debate) on Lieberman
  • Truthdig’s interview with Lamont
  • UPDATE #1: Blogger Enigmatic Paradox gives the debate to Lamont, but not for the reason you’d expect….

    Thuggish Far-Right Intimidation Tactics Go Mainstream

    The practice of posting the home address of someone targeted for supposed offenses (like being a member of the ACLU), until now practiced mainly by hate groups, has been embraced by “mainstream” pundits like Michelle Malkin and David Horowitz.

    Test-Tube Meat May Be En Route to Dinner Table

    Dutch scientists are working on growing artificial pork out of pig stem cells. Efforts to mass-produce it are underway.
    This use of stem cells may have the unintended effect of uniting militant vegans and evangelical right-to-life’ers.

    Military Checking Journos’ ‘Slant’ Before Granting Access

    Newsweek’s former Baghdad bureau chief says that U.S. military personnel in Iraq have started reviewing journalists’ previous work and their “slant,” or point of view, before granting the reporters the right to embed with units. He said some reporters have been “blacklisted” for writing pieces unfriendly to the military.

    Pentagon Monitored Student Groups’ E-mail

    The Department of Defense monitored e-mails from college students who were planning protests against the Iraq war and against the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. The Pentagon apparently started digging after receiving tips through a website used for soliciting anti-terror tips from civilians and military personnel. (Link - reg req’d)
