Easy post: Hillary and Sarah need defense in this Australian paper

Hillary and Sarah need defense in this Australian paper. Easy registration and posting (moderation delay); onlly 10 comments so far.

Article is good on Hillary and Bill but Comments are Bots.

Here's the author's dig at Sarah:

<I>Faced with the dismaying rise of flirty, dirty Sarah Palin, a woman who declares that all she ever needed to know was learnt on a basketball court, we cling to the idea of a woman of substance, whose eloquent life is making the impossible possible.
Helen Elliott is a Melbourne writer.</I>

Boston Globe: EASY POST Imaginary Fiends [Clinton's anti-crime policies worked]

<I>[ In the early 90s ] Bill Clinton boosted funding for local police forces, and police began experimenting with radical new approaches to policing, such as those employed in the so-called Boston Miracle. In 1994, the murder rate started to fall, and it's been falling ever since. Rape, robbery, and aggravated assault have dropped along with it. Last year was no exception. According to preliminary FBI data, the murder rate dropped 10 percent from 2008 to 2009, robbery fell 6.5 percent, aggravated assault fell 3.2 percent, auto theft was down a whopping 18.7 percent.</I>

Democrats Desperate to Pass Health Care — Win, Lose or Draw in Massachusetts
a close election would still be seen as a victory for Republicans and enough of a negative judgment on health care reform to spook moderates, who were already anxious over passing a bill that has proved unpopular in the polls. House Democrats' dreams of creating a public option and taxing the rich to pay for it go out the window under this scenario.

politico: Males taking their anger out on Coakley

The numbers show males and independents overwhelmingly breaking for Brown, who has married his GQ looks with a populist tone in a pick-up truck on the campaign trail. 
"Men are not going to vote for Coakley at all. You have a very angry male voter who's repudiating whatever is being said in Washington and they're taking it out on this woman. [....]"

BurningPlatform: EASY POST Is financial collapse inevitable?

[ A good place to talk about how Hillary was right and how the Clintons could save the economy. ]
EASY POST. Doesn't even need name or email. Post goes right up.

BurningPlatform: Did foreigners cause America's financial crisis?

Let me get this straight, its not the fault of the people who came up with the toxic assets backed by fraudulent mortgage loans.  Nor is it the fault of the ones who wrote the fraudulent mortgage loans.  It isn't at all the fault of the ones who lied on their mortgage applications in order to obtain fraudulent mortgage loans.  It isn't the fault of the credit ratings agencies who knew (or ought to have known) that these instruments were unsafe and backed up by a series of fraudulent loans, and thus rated them low-risk.  

 BUT it IS the fault of the dirty foreign investors who were looking for a safe place to put their American dollars.  SHAME on those investors who by simply believing in the American system caused this mess.  Can't you see that it was your insatiable hunger for American assets that caused us to lie and cheat and steal? What choice did we have

EASY POST. Form is at the bottom, can even leave the name and email blank. Post goes right up.

TheHill: easy post? Dems threaten to use 51-vote tactic for health bill if they lose in Mass

[ FYI, this means that electing Brown over Coakley will not in fact stop the HC bill, as Reid has other ways to pass it. ]

Democrats are prepared to use a budgetary procedure to pass healthcare reform legislation if they lose a key Senate race on Tuesday, a House leader said this weekend.

Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), the assistant to the Speaker and chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), said using budget reconciliation is "an option" to pass a healthcare bill.

"Even before Massachusetts and that race was on the radar screen, we prepared for the process of using reconciliation," Van Hollen said during an appearance on Bloomberg television over the weekend.

Budget reconciliation is a procedural rule allowing a bill to pass the Senate with a simple majority, instead of the 60 votes usually needed to end debate on any given piece of legislation.

Easy post? No registration requested, form works quickly, but 'comment will be reviewed.'
