The Catch Up On Many Things Thread For 10/30/09: The Robust Public Option Still Has A Chance

The robust public option still has a chance thanks to the outstanding Raul Grijalva.

The Daily Open Thread For 10/29/09: Petty Senators

Putting their selfish interest ahead of America again. First, CO-Op man

And former President/Empress Snowe with her Triggerarcy all day long:

These two people speak to how our Senate, as Greenwald said last night on Maddow, has been purchased away painfully to the special interests.

Thanks to Republicans still being classless in the continued blockade of Obama Administration and Judicial nominees, Henry Reid continued his recent little streak of standing strong and calling them out for their childish behavior.

At least Conrad wasn't too pathetic to do this though. So credit is given when earned. And with Conrad, it sure as hell has to be earned.

Sports Thread #1 For 10/29/09: The Runthrough

Daniel Gibson runs into Chris Bosh, as the Cavs have run into an 0-2 start to their season (Photo from Associated Press) The Cavaliers are really lacking the versatility that is needed for a championship team outside of course of LeBron James. It's only two games, but the Cavaliers haven't looked good for the last 7 of the 8 quarters they have played so far.

Mo Williams isn't strong enough of a distributor , Shaq and the rest of the bigs aren't versatile enough to truly execute pick and roll, and here is just no guy right now on that team besides James that you can picture taking over a game deep in the postseason.

I picked them to win the title this year, though when them making a move in the mid season though. Because there is no way with this current lineup and roster that they will win the title.

Music Thread #1 For 10/29/09: The Runthrough

"This Is It" cashed in 2.2 million on its premiere night.

Meanwhile, MJ has made $72 million after his death.

Joe Budden continues to score in the "lose" column.

Shakira's time has past in my mind. Younger pop artists have basically taken over her own her lane in the game, and that single she has out right now just isn't generating anything.

50 Cent's album has is one link to the "Psycho" song from Eminem. And for that album, which has been planned way before even the rushed "Curtis" album, "Before I Self Destruct" isn't generating really any buzz at all.

Quietly, Jay-Z and Black Eyed Peas albums went platinum last week, and both are over the 1.1 million threshold. Disappointing numbers for Mariah Carey though, and Whitney Houston will probably need a second single if she is to go platinum by year's end.

And I guarantee you that this will be the worst rap album ever. This guy is not even good at wh…

10/29/09: TWD's Agenda For The Day- So What Happened To The Robust Public Option

You would think that the House, with how fierce its Speaker has been as well as having a clear dominate majority in the Democratic side would produce the strongest health care reform bill for REAL reform in this country.

And especially after last week, last Thursday, where the Speaker said that she had the votes for a robust public option, you would have all assured yourself that at least the House will give the nation its best shot at ultimate reform happening.

Then all of a sudden, last Friday happened. And ever since then, the robust public option became what it is now today.

Not robust.Under pressure from moderate-to-conservative members of the House Democratic caucus, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has decided to propose a government-run insurance plan that would negotiate rates with doctors and hospitals, rather than using prices set by the government, aides said Wednesday.

Ms. Pelosi said the public plan, which she prefers to call a “consumer option,” would compete with private insurers. …

The Cliff & Chase Show Give Phillies A Dominate Game 1 Win Over The Yankees (World Series Sports Thread #2

Coming into the postseason , Cliff Lee had yet to record a playoff win, let alone pitch in the postseason.

After four starts, no question that Cliff Lee is the best pitcher in baseball at this point.

A masterful performance that featured 10 strikeouts, no walks, and a jaw dropping behind the back fielding play from Lee spurred the defending champion to a dominant 6-1 Game 1 win in the World Series.

This is how good the CY Young winner of 2008 was: He allowed no runner to third base before the 9th inning, and he also prevented two runners form being on base at the same time before the final frame.

Outside of the always brilliant Derek Jeter (who again, with a 3 for 5 performance and the only run scored for the Yankees in this game), Lee flummoxed the entire Yankee lineup all night. He baffled the in form Alex Rodriguez with three strikeouts, took the confident bats away from dangerous youngsters Robinson Cano and Melky Cabrera, and took any threat from the veteran bats of Jorge Posada a…

The 2009 World Series: Phillies vs Yankees (A Sports Thread LIVE Special For 10/28/09)

The Philadelphia Phillies look to become the first National League team since the Cincinnati Reds 33 years ago to repeat as MLB World Series Champions, as they take on a New York Yankees side looking for a 27th championship in their glorious franchise history.

Both teams have obviously proven themselves to no question be the best two teams to reach the ultimate stage of professional baseball this year. There was no "timely peak at the right time" or "ride an ace pitcher on his shoulders" for neither side, as their play all season placed them in position to excel at the highest level in their league's playoffs.

Since June, the Yankees were by far the best team in the American league, as there bullpen was solidified with Phil Hughes emerging as the set up man already with lefty Phil Coke to cover the immaculate Mariano Rivera. It also helped that Mark Teixiera showed what a great off season acquisition he was as well as Alex Rodriguez getting over his hip surgery…

The Catch Up On Many Things Thread For 10/28/09:

Busy with many things today outside of TWD everyone, so sorry for the delay. But here's the runthrough:

Public Option Health Care News

While most were focusing on the LIE-bera--hole show yesterday with the Senate, the bigger story probably was in the House. A robust public option, something Nancy Pelosi said was going to happen in her chamber, is in serious danger actually.

The negotiation rates need to keep premiums at 10-11% in comparison to typical private insurers being truly strong instead of the negotiated rates that the Blue Dog/conservative nutcases want. Without that, the public option, though still a public option at day's end, is not as strong as it should be.

And, as Jon Walker said in that link, it IS A Slap in the face to the working class. That would be around a $1,400 reduction in premiums for the average family that could choose the robust public option. Forcing Americans to pay roughly $1,400 more a year on health insurance premiums, by denying them the choice …

Sports Thread #2 For 10/27/09: Los Angeles Lakers Open Their Season By Getting Their Rings


That Context Issue Again

Some are once again giving heat to Alan Grayson for his usage of the word "whore" to describe former Enron lobbyist Linda Robertson. Well, basically that some consist of the usual Republican hypocrites, but also include some on Grayson's fan club that feel he shouldn't have used the word "whore."

For me, this is akin to his usage of the word "holocaust" to describe the non-plan SOP health care ideas, and how some, including Rachel Maddow, gave him criticism on that.

For me, just like with "holocaust", I may have wished Grayson said another word besides "whore" not because of him needing to tone it down at all, but because we wouldn't have to hear anybody slam this man for telling the 100% truth like he has done thus far in his way. Because of the type of outcry from the Right saying "Grayson should once again be ashamed of himself and their usual holy than thou" diatribes, the staff of the fast rising Dem had to ob…

The Read International For 10/27/09: The Deadliest Month For US Soldiers Ever In Afghanistan

Photo from the AP
Today, 8 more US Soldiers died in Afghanistan today via bomb attacks, making it the deadliest month for US forces in the entire 8 year period in that country.

This certainly will continue to raise the obvious question of "Why are we still over there?" Brave troops continuing to being put in harms way, and the growing chorus of President Obama needing to make the right decision here of withdrawing will continue to get louder and louder.

When will that rational and necessary decision be made?

Glenn Beck Day/Teabag Day Needs To Be A Holiday!

TWI's Dave Weigel is reporting that the nutcases in the House did this: Republican Study Committee Chairman Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) today introduced — along with 75 other Republicans — a resolution to officially commemorate the 9/12 taxpayer march on Washington. Other sponsors of H.R. 870 include Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa.), and Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), the party’s whip.

The odds of passage–which would demand that Democrats endorse bill language about “skyrocketing deficits, taxpayer-funded bailouts, pork-barrel projects, burdensome taxes, unaccountable policy czars, command-and-control energy policy, and a government takeover of health care”–seem slim.I guess their next step is to make sure that is becomes a federal holiday.

10/27/09: TWD's Agenda For The Day: Schumer Says White House Preferred Public Option Over Trigger

A lot of people are going to not believe Schumer on this story, and believe he is covering up for the White House. But does that even matter at this point? No, it doesn't The debate over what happened behind the scenes is a big deal: It goes to the heart of who really deserves credit for the startling turn of events yesterday. The claims that the White House wanted a trigger, and tried to bigfoot Harry Reid into inserting one, infuriated liberals who saw it as Obama’s latest stiff-arming of the left-wing base.

But Schumer says that’s not so. Here’s what he told TPM about this:“I think substantively the White House probably preferred a stronger public option than a trigger,” Schumer said. “We talked about this for a while in leadership and the White House wanted to hear our thoughts — and when they heard them they thought that this was the right strategy to get our caucus together.”What matters now is the progress of the final Senate bill to be debated on the floor, and whether the …

Dana Perino's Amnesia Problems Continue

The level of short term memory loss (or just outright lies) of Dana Perino is quite staggering to this writer's brain.

And if you look at some of the coverage of what mainstream media covers when, for example, somebody like a Hugo Chavez shuts down television stations, he calls them illegitimate.

They got through the Red Sox finally and, despite some uncharacteristic errors that cost them dearly in this series, showed why they are still one of the elite franchises in all of Major League Baseball.

Well, I'll let Christina Bellantoni reporting say it all. The clowns at Fixed Propaganda Comedian Network have used this as its latest salvo all day today, in terms of the "WHITE HOUSE WAR ON US" , by saying they were excluded out of an interview with pay czar Ken Feinberg yesterday, and that, (GET THIS) all the other networks came in defense for Fixed being left out in the cold.

Boo hoo hoo.

Only, it was a lie:Feinberg did a pen and pad with reporters to brief them on cutting executive compensation. TV correspondents, as they do with everything, asked to get the comments on camera. Treasury officials agreed and made a list of the networks who asked (Fox was not among them).

But logistically, all of the cameras could not get set up in time or with ease for the Feinberg interview, so they opted for a round robin where the networks use …
