This piece is written by Rebecca of Sex and Politics and Screeds and Attitude, Cedric of Cedric's Big Mix, Kat of Kat's Korner, Betty of Thomas Friedman is a Great Man, Mike of Mikey Likes It!, Elaine of Like Maria Said Paz, Ruth of Ruth's Report, Marcia of SICKOFITRADLZ and Wally of The Daily Jot. Unless otherwise noted, we picked all highlights.

"Naeema al-Gasseer: the United Nations' embarrassment in Iraq" -- if any parent of any of us requests a highlight, they get it. Jim's father requested that we highlight this piece by C.I. He's read over a transcript of the Friday press conference and says the United Nations has allowed one of their employees to completely cross the line and that every reporter he's shown the transcript to are outraged at a UN rep attacking the press, covering for a government and blaming individuals for a government that refuses to address a disease.

"Thomas Friedman mounts his Huffy bike" -- In this chapter, Betinna faces the return (and departure) of husband Thomas Friedman who frets over his new love and fancies himself Mary Tyler Moore.

"Adults in the Kitchen" -- Trina calls out Barack's crap and his refusal to take it seriously -- his refusal and many others.

"sunsara taylor," "Sunsara Taylor and political honesty" and "Iraq snapshot" -- Rebecca, Elaine and C.I. all note Sunsara Taylor's powerful speech.

"Nancy Pelosi: The fold-out politician" and "nancy pelosi donates to cindy sheehan's campaign!" -- Kat and Rebecca note "No offshore drilling!" Pelosi's latest cave and how it helps Cindy Sheehan.

"The company he keeps" & "THIS JUST IN! CAROL FOWLER TERRORIST AND ASS!" -- Cedric and Wally cover the continued decay of the Fowler family with Carol Fowler being the latest embarrassment.

"Jeremiah was a . . . piece of trash" -- The 'upstanding' Jeremiah Wright, portrayed as a man of God to listen to by all the fringe media. And during that? Cheating on his wife with an employee who has now filed a lawsuit against him. Cheating on his second wife, we should add. His first marriage broke up when he gave marriage 'counseling' to a couple -- but wanted one on one sessions with the wife -- the woman who ended up being his second wife. For any who remember his mocking of Bill Clinton at the front of the church which included hip thrusting, Jeremiah's inability to keep it in his own pants probably comes as no shock. His 'standards' were on display for all to see long ago, as Marcia outlines.

Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "Barack Running Scared" -- Isaiah's comic explaining Barack's reaction to Sarah Palin.

"House Armed Services Committee" & "Iraq snapshot" -- Mike and C.I. cover the House Armed Services Committee hearing.

"Child labor scandal" -- a scandal that didn't get a great deal of attention but should have. Ruth caught it.

"the new 'obama girls'," "How stupid is Michelle Cottle?," "Sexism and bad journalism" "the new 'obama girls'," & "The crazies" -- Rebecca, Marcia, Elaine and Mike's state of the world/media overviews.

"Barack the unwanted," "THIS JUST IN! BARACK NEEDS RESCUING!" & "I don't want Bill campaigning for Barack" -- Cedric, Wally and Kat covering the weak Barack.

"Andrew Romano, Jeff Roca" -- Ruth explaining just how many voters Barack's running off.
