I find myself not too happy with Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today. It appears that on Wednesday he went on to the liberal talk radio show of Bill Press and said?
BILL PRESS:? Alright, well good for you. You know, we gotta work on that, because they are just shutting down progressive talk from one city after another. All we want is, you know, some balance on the airwaves, that’s all. You know, we’re not going to take any of the conservative voices off the airwaves, but just make sure that there are a few progressives and liberals out there, right?
SENATOR TOM HARKIN (D-IA): Exactly, and that’s why we need the fair — that’s why we need the Fairness Doctrine back.
I’ve joined the ranks of Twitters for the last week or so and it is quickly becoming an obsession. In those few days I have begun following about 350 people and have gained a following of 150. If you don’t know, Twitter is like a cross between an instant messenger service and bloging. Your limited to only 140 characters per post and is sometimes called micro-blogging.
In the last week one of the things I have learned from Twitter is…
That@johnleonardo and a few others seem to have some odd obsession with President Obama’s teleprompter usage, even though it doesn’t appear as if he has used it any more than other Presidents before him. It might be that they are seeing it more because Obama actually talks to people on a regular basis. The have even created a fake twitter persona called @BOTeleprompter.
@michellemalkin: seems to have become the first celebrity to ever reply to one of my tweets. I’m not sure exactly how I feel about that. This is how it went.
@michellemalkinVery effective that almost all GOP house members have text of Dodd/Treasury/Obama provision in poster form/on paper. Driving the point home.
@vastvariety: @michellemalkin If it’s all Dodd and Obama’s fault what was Paulson and Bush responsible for in September when the first money went to AIG?
@michellemalkin:@vastvariety They all have dirty hands, and I have said so many, many times.
@vastvariety: @michellemalkin They do Indeed.
