Maine: My Sunday column at MyDD focused on Susan Collins' record of lies, hypocrisy and allegiance to the far-right wing of the GOP. The column isn't half-bad, if I say so myself. By the end of writing the column, I was so disgusted with Collins' record that, even though it's a relatively high-profile race, I had to add Tom Allen to the Expand the Map! ActBlue page even though his race is already firmly on the map. Read the column and contribute to Tom Allen so we can oust Susan Collins! It would be awesome to get 10 contributions to Allen today, any amount, just give a little if you can.
Alaska: A new Research 2000 poll commissioned by Daily Kos finds that Ted Stevens is in deep trouble if/when Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich enters the 2008 Senate race. Begich leads Stevens 47-41. And that's before Begich even enters the race! Further, Stevens' favorable-unfavorable stands at 39-58 while Begich's stands at 48-19. Lookin' good! (It's almost good enough to hope that Stevens doesn't get indicted!)
Kentucky: We should expect an announcement from Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Horne about a 2008 Senate challenge to Mitch McConnell within two weeks. Meanwhile, anybody accepting that state Attorney General Greg Stumbo had ruled out a Senate challenge is mistaken, for now.
Tennessee: While attorney Kevin Doherty mulls over a possible 2008 Senate challenge to Lamar Alexander, businessman Andrew Byrd's name is popping up as a possible challenger.
Alabama: State Senator Vivian Davis Figures' full Senate campaign website is up and running. (HT: Left in Alabama)
South Carolina: If political reconciliation in Iraq doesn't occur by Christmas, boy, Lindsey Graham sure will have egg on his face!
I'm not saying that White House Press Secretary Dana Perino is dumb as bricks, but she doesn't know the difference between the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Bay of Pigs "thing." Sound clip here.
