So today's headlines in the Juice News have been No, OMG OMG OMG and WTF. Which brings us to this. Sorry to spam you but I guess it's one of those days.

I joined the Obama machine (OFA) remessaging committee for New Mexico, thinking the Dems had finally seen the light and were going to craft a progressive Powell/Luntz memo for the 21st century.

Just got an email from the imperial wizard. The agenda for the next remessaging meeting is writing down soundbites from Michael Moore's speech in Madison to be used during neighborhood canvassing.

The world has gone mad.

The best reporter ever. Non-ideological. Voter-loving. Optimist.

"I've learned that the most undervalued, underreported aspect of politics is what voters bring to the table," he told Washingtonian magazine. "My generation of reporters was deeply influenced by Teddy White, the greatest political journalist of our time. He showed us how far inside a campaign you could go.

"We naturally emulated him, at least as far as our skills would take us," he said. "Before long, we got so far inside that we forgot the outside - that the campaign belonged not to the candidates or their consultants or their pollsters, but to the public."
