Sen. Webb’s Burmese Vacation

Sen. Jim Webb is the first senior U.S. official in more than 10 years to visit Burma, triggering speculation that the White House may be trying to nudge the authoritarian regime there into a “new era of engagement.” The trip follows the recent ludicrous sentencing of pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi to 18 more months of house arrest.

During his response to President Bush’s State of the Union address, Sen. Jim Webb (shown above with congressional leaders Sen. Harry Reid and Rep. Nancy Pelosi) referred to the crises of division and war faced by two of history’s better Republican presidents, Teddy Roosevelt and Dwight Eisenhower, and then issued an ultimatum to the current occupant of the White House.

    Ragin' Recount

    Get Ready for Ragin’ Recount 2006!

So prepare yourself for a recount battle second in ferocity only to the 2000 Bush-Gore saga—one replete with legal maneuvering, public posturing and, of course, dirty tricks.
    Update: We may be wrong about the above. (mea culpa after the jump…)

    Marie Cocco: The Race That ‘Macaca’ Made

    The unraveling of Virginia Sen. George Allen’s reelection campaign may have begun with a single offensive remark caught on tape, but his competitor’s Lamont-style netroots insurgency is just as responsible for making the race tight.
