Pre-Super Bowl Notes
1) It was a rough week on The Young Turks for my little segment. First they thought I was someone else (actually my colleague at The Gadflyer, Paul Waldman, not due to go on until 8:30 AM, not 8 AM), no biggie, but then it seems I reported a story that is an Internet hoax (Donnie Davies).
I had heard rumblings, but decided to go with it anyhow, as it is a "funny" segment, as opposed to well-sourced, hard-hitting news like the fact that Barack Obama was educated at a Madrassa.
2) I wrote a piece for Huff Post summing up our success (over 200,000 views and counting of Robert Greenwald's short video John McCain vs. John McCain) at launching The Real McCain site. Progressive synergy.
Hey, it got us a front-page article on the LA Times and coverage in numerous other MSM venues (supposedly on CNN tonight, but I'll be watching other things...we'll get to that in a minute).
3) I have a new piece up at The Real McCain. It shows how Republican Senator Chuck Hagel has now called Double-Talk McCain's Iraq plan "intellectually dishonest."
4) I am going on the Cup O' Joe Radio Show on The Head-On Radio Network tomorrow at 10:15 AM EST to discuss using technology in message politics (a la our McCain site). From the picture it looks like it's based on Chicago. I don't know much more. Should be fun.
Finally, who ya want to win tonight in the Superbowl, if you indeed give a crap? I was pulling for Peyton Manning, and I do try to separate my sports from my politics, but just found out he maxed out to racist Bob Corker in the last election. And I do love Chicago. But Paddy's from Indiana. So, really, as you can see, I have no freakin idea who I am pulling for anymore.
Now off to the gym to pre-work off that pizza and beer.
