A brilliant video from JedReport.com on the clear flip-flopping on how John McCain and company have handled Michelle Obama’s patriotism. Faux News has largely jumped on her gaffe, sizing her up as an angst-filled, angry black woman.

Only a handful out commentators, notably MSNBC’s Dan Abrams has sought to point out that McCain himself has made similar statements in the past, yet conservative media outlets have jumped on statements by Michelle Obama completely out of context.

Check out this great smash-up video, “The Glass House of McCain.”

New Yorker:

Olbermann reveres Murrow, but Murrow never called a President “Idiot-in-Chief.’’

It was nearly midnight before Keith Olbermann left the NBC News election studio on May 13th, having spent five hours on the air, co-anchoring coverage of the West Virginia Democratic primary. Olbermann had a short ride home from Rockefeller Plaza to his condominium on the Upper East Side, and he was in bed by 2 A.M. But he lay wide awake, overcome by an urge to get up and move about.

He has been given a diagnosis of Wittmaack-Ekbom’s syndrome, also known as “restless-legs syndrome” (and also “the kicks,” “Jimmy legs,” and “jitters”), a neurological disorder that produces a prickling, itching, or crawling feeling in the legs, profoundly disturbing sleep.

Reclining exacerbates the condition, so Olbermann got out of bed, took a pill for the ailment, and, while waiting for the drug to kick in, scrolled through his BlackBerry, scanning recent messages. One arrested his attention. It was a link to the Web site Politico, which featured an interview conducted that day with President Bush. Olbermann was struck by two questions from the interview, and by Bush’s answers to them: CONTINUE READING

FishBowlDC: Tim Russert’s son, Luke, is scheduled to appear on NBC’s ‘Today’ show program tomorrow morning (sometime between 7 and 7:30 a.m.) to discuss his father’s passing

You’ll recall that Luke vacationed in Italy with his father and mother (Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth) just days before Tim’s death from a heart attack Friday. The vacation was, in part, a celebration of Luke’s graduation from Boston College.

As much of the coverage of Russert’s passing and legacy has indicated, Luke and his father shared a close and treasured father-son relationship.

‘Today’ show host Matt Lauer will conduct the interview via satellite, with Luke appearing from Washington, D.C.

I’m a bit sad today, with the unexpected news of Tim Russert’s sudden passing. As a student of politics and journalism, I had great respect for Russert’s ability to take on the topical news of the moment, and be as objective and fair as he was. He was the pinnacle of fair journalism in the American media, with his ridiculously tough grillings of countless politicians and newsmakers.

As a total news junkie, I’m sad that I won’t see him again (for a bit), in what has become an amazing year in politics. I watched with heartbreak today the coverage of Russert’s death. How painful to watch the reactions from Olbermann, Brokaw, Matthews, Fineman, Robinson, Mitchell, Todd. And how poignant to realize, with his deep connection with Big Russ, he left us on Father’s Day Weekend.

I, for one, will miss an incredible journalist and student of politics… A stand-up guy. But most of all, a lover of life.

The Plainsman Politico extends its condolences to his family, the NBC family, and anyone who watches politics, because we’ve been left with a huge vacuum that simply cannot be replaced.
