Dan Riehl blows up the NRCC in regards to NY-23
From the diaries by Erick. Consider this piece by Dan Riehl a must read. I have heard the exact same thing as Dan. In a nutshell: forget the nonsense that the New York GOP picked Dede Scozzafava all by itself. There was actual, tangible involvement from the NRCC leadership in that choice — just another example of the Beltway GOP Establishment screwing things up. (H/T | Read More »
(Updated) The Kill Shot? Lieberman says he’ll vote to filabuster Reid
OUCH!!! That wailing and gnashing of teeth you hear is the people at Moveon.org, the Daily Kos, etc., and they are probably burning up Lieberman’s phones right now.

Either way, this is a big win but the battle is not over yet.
Daily Kos puts out a call list to target Dems in the House
While I believe their lean breakdown to be somewhat suspect, call these House congressmen anyway and let them know what you think. According to them, they are 12-15 votes away from securing a majority to vote a public option legislation bill to pass on to the Senate. Hmmm….I thought Pelosi had the votes?
