This piece is written by Rebecca of Sex and Politics and Screeds and Attitude, Betty of Thomas Friedman Is a Great Man, Kat of Kat's Korner (of The Common Ills), Cedric of Cedric's Big Mix, Mike of Mikey Likes It!, Elaine of Like Maria Said Paz, and Wally of The Daily Jot and all highlights selected by us unless otherwise noted.

"Thomas Friedman in his element" -- Betinna continues searching for answers and for Nicky K (Kristof). She finds her stuff in yet another dive where her crossdressing husband Thomas Friedman contributes to noise pollution. She also finds a bit more.

"Garlic potatoes in the Kitchen" -- Trina explaining conventional oven via microwave in terms of crispness as well as the latest on Dennis Kucinich's campaign.

"Nation magazine damage becomes an illness" -- Forget Bird Flu, we're more concerned with The Nation Flu which appears to have inflicted a number of commentators. Symptoms include a swollen tongue from giving baths to Barack Obama and a fever induced state when perceptions become warped. It is thought that Patricia J. Williams was the earliest carrier of the disease but she's been quaranteneed since babbling that Obama should be president of the United States because he was president of the Harvard Law Review.

"Hoprah, watch your back!" & "THIS JUST IN! BARACK GOES BOTH WAYS ON IRAQ!" -- Cedric & Wally have had their immunizations (required as they 'travel' the globe) and are protected from The Nation Flu. Which is why shortly after Obama had finished his speech, they were already calling it out.

"only mike gravel spoke the truth on hugo chavez", "Univision's Democratic forum" and "Iraq snapshot" -- Rebecca, Kat and C.I. covering the Univision debate which seems to have gone largely unnoticed when compared to other debates thus far this year.

"Judy Collins -- Shameless" -- Kat gives more background on her most recent recent CD revies: "Kat's Korner: Judy Collins makes like Eydie Gorme."

"Cindy Sheehan, Patrick Cockburn, Naomi Klein" -- You do not have Naomi Klein's new book! You don't! Or that's what an e-mailer insisted to Elaine. Yes, she did have it. We all had it. We discuss it here today.

"Bully Boy's backstage antics" & "THIS JUST IN! UGLY BULLY'S BACKSTAGE PROBLEMS!" -- Cedric and Wally go all E! and Behind the Music on your asses to explain how Thursday night's primetime special almost didn't come off.

"And the war drags on . . ." -- Ty told us this entry by C.I. was the most requested highlight in e-mails to this site. Ty noted that Nikoli's e-mail especially deserved a shout-out because Nikoli explained -- in detail -- how his own campus was reflected in the entry. If Nikoli gives his permission, his e-mail will run in full in the gina & krista round-robin this Friday.

"Obama the War Hawk speaks like an idiot" & "Baby Obama makes a stinky"-- Elaine and Mike don't suffer from The Nation Flu either. Which is why they didn't fall Barack Obama's meaningless spin. Samantha Power works really hard, ya'll, on those speeches! She just wants to invade the world one country at a time! Give it up for Sammy. It's not hard being Our Modern Day Carrie Nation!

Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "Bully Boy 'lets' David Petraeus speak to Congress" -- Isaiah's prediction (which turned out to be true) of Davey Petraeus performances before Congress.

"phyllis bennis & eric lever ignore over 400,000 iraqi deaths" -- the one and only Rebecca offering her take on the useless. "Eric Lever"? Rebecca, "Spelling his name properly is the least of my worries and 'Lever' is also an inside joke."
