The Sestak affair – does any thinking person really believe that a White House serious about offering Sestak a job to keep him from challenging Arlen Spector would offer a unpaid position on an executive branch advisory board? Yeah, me neither. And now we have Clinton in the mix?

Memorial day – what it means and, with two wars going on and with the bodies of those he’s ordered into combat laying in final repose there, should the President be at Arlington tomorrow instead of Chicago?

In NJ the governor is taking on the public service unions and cutting spending. In IL the governor is backing the demands of the public service unions and calling for an income tax hike.

GM’s “payback” of their loan: The real deal? Or smoke and mirrors? If you’re guessing the latter, give yourself a cigar. We’ll explain.
