Wednesday Quick Hits
Texas: John Cornyn's spokesman confirms that Cornyn will debate his 2008 Republican Senate primary opponent, Larry Kilgore. I can't wait for those YouTube highlights!
Idaho: Larry Craig is trying yet another line of defense to clear his name following his "bathroom sex sting" arrest. I, for one, would very much like to know if Craig's new BFF Jim Risch supports Craig's efforts, and I hope the Idaho media will inquire.
New Mexico: The 2008 Republican Senate primary between GOP Congresscritters Heather Wilson and Steve Pearce will see a sparkplug in the mix stirring up noise as the unpredictable former state senator Tom Benavides is joining the race.
Minnesota: House party fundraisers typically get a couple dozen attendees. Al Franken's are getting over 100.
Kos channels my exact sentiments from last night:
I've been watching MSNBC because of Keith Olbermann [and, for the Guru, Norah O'Donnell]. But I'm done. Chris Matthews is insufferable. Right now, Brokaw is giving him a tongue-lashing, well deserved. But that's it. I'm watching CNN the rest of the way unless MSNBC muzzles that blowhard.Matthews was beyond obnoxious to watch last night.
