Cheney campaigning for Kuhl
I would love to go to this event. I’ve never met Cheney and something like this would be a good chance to talk to him without him alreadly being on the defensive.

Massa and Cleland on WXXI
Eric Massa and Max Cleland appeared on WXXI’s 1370 Connection this afternoon. (Post contains audio link.)

Max Cleland in Corning

Conservative blogger Andrew Sullivan (who generally has excellent sources) is reporting that the White House is about to stoop to a new low in exploiting 911 for political gain:

The swift boats are coming, the swift boats are coming!
Are Massa, Maffei, and Davis ready? Here’s the Washington Post:

The 29th: A Little Red State
… Though the 29th is situated in one of the bluest states in the nation, it is rural and mainly Republican. 

Bush Hands Kuhl a Golden Opportunity
President Bush’s proposal for Gitmo tribunals brings back the memory of one of Randy Kuhl’s most interesting votes.
