Monday, November 3, 2008 posts are missing

This morning I found all my posts had disappeared, including the one I was working on. Nothing saves. And I found a lot of old comments from Max Bucks, Dave Budge and others "awaiting moderation" when I don't even use comment moderation. Anyway, I think the host is screwing with the SQL server.

Getting the Bum's Rush

Congress is in a big hurry to pass the Mother of All Bailouts. The market rallied today because there is "progress" in the Congressional negotiations. They've just got to get 'er done now....[a] Democrat on the committee, Brad Sherman, said that if Congress does not act in the next few days, the bailout would not likely pass in its current form."My calls are coming in about 300 to 2 against this

MSM Pushback

The Great Falls Tribune takes aim at those outta control bloggers, albeit through an op-ed borrowed from the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Montana Headlines conducted a great 2-part interview of Brad Molnar, who is running for re-election to the Public Service Commission.

Obama as Accidental Nominee

Christopher Hitchens, that lovable erstwhile Trotskyist, seems to be a bit frustrated with Barack Obama.Why is Obama so vapid and hesitant and gutless?

It appears that persons connected to the Obama campaign posted an "independent" video that falsely exaggerated Sarah Palin's involvement with the Alaska Independence Party.Our research suggests that a subdivision of one of the largest public relations firms in the world most likely started and promulgated rumors about Sarah Palin

Push-Polled by the Obama Campaign

It was a long set of questions and at first I couldn't figure out who it was for. I asked who the polling outfit was but she said she didn't know.After determining I was a strong Republican and planned to vote for McCain, albeit with reservations, the questions zeroed in on the economy. Who cared more about people like me? Who was more likely to raise my taxes? Who has closer ties to Wall Street
