Tuesday Quick Hits
Alabama: Despite the fact that supporting and defending the Constitution of the United States is a key principle in the oath U.S. Senators take (heck, it's the first line!), Jeff Sessions actually mocks those that would fight to defend the Constitution. First, Sessions is an idiot. Second, Patrick Henry said "Give me liberty or give me death," not "Give me liberty, unless we have to work hard to maintain it from time to time."
Alaska: More sketchy, scandal-ridden earmarks courtesy of Ted Stevens.
Kentucky: More conservative leaders are unhappy with Mitch McConnell. Meanwhile, McConnell is caught pushing for tax breaks for another special interest that happens to be lining his campaign coffers.
Nebraska: Scott Kleeb on the Issues. Draft Kleeb!
Oregon: An Independent Party-commissioned poll sees the Independent Party candidate running in a statistical dead heat with Democratic Senate candidate Jeff Merkley, as they hold Republican Gordon Smith to under 40%.
MyDD's Beeton sees some of our Democratic Senate candidates voicing support for Chris Dodd's fight against retroactive telecom immunity.
Speaking of, count the Guru among those very much warming up to the idea of Chris Dodd being our next Senate Majority Leader.
