Obama Visits Section 60 at Arlington

This report from the New York Daily News is very moving. I just saw the author, James Gordon Meek, on MSNBC and will post the video if/when it becomes available.

It's especially so, when aware that afterward, from 2:30 to 4:50 pm he met with his team to weigh the options for Afghanistan.

Read the whole thing, but here's a taste:
"Well, we appreciate his service very much," Obama told me.

I then told him I'm a reporter for the Daily News - but was just there to visit friends.

"Well, James," he said, looking me in the eye, "just because you're a journalist doesn't mean you can't honor your friends here."

The First Lady smiled and squeezed my hand. I thanked her for coming to Section 60.

Her face opened up into a smile filled with warmth and comfort, a welcome antidote for the weather and sadness around her. She said there was no finer place to be on Veterans Day.

Oprah Previews Palin Interview

Won't broadcast until next Monday, but here's the official Oprah preview:

Regarding Levi Johnson, US Magazine has a bit more -
Of Johnston badmouthing the family to press, the former Alaska Gov. says: "We don't have to keep going down this road of controversy and drama all the time. We're not really into the drama. We don't really like that. We're more productive. We have other things to concentrate on...."
Sure - that's why she responds to every thing Levi says - to NOT keep it going.

"As much as it pains him," Sean Hannity admits Jon Stewart caught him red handed. Called it inadvertent. Sure, just like the labeled Sen. Specter as a Democrat (before he actually became one).

Facts matter not. Here's the video:

FOX - Liar, Liar - Caught With Pants on Fire

One of the two messages I still have from my mother is her saying good-bye to me, a message left at a point when I was driving back to DC.  After saying you good bye, she added - "Did you hear that Fox News identified Mark Foley as a Democrat.  Can you believe that outfit?!?  Bye"

Well Mom - I know you'd appreciate this:

Daily Show Mocks Beck Brilliantly

This was so funny, I laughed until I cried. Probably only funny if you've actually seen Beck's show. Stewart's satire is a relief (and no worse than Affleck mimicking Olbermann on SNL).

"The Communists who want to socialize your Nazism." blissful ignorance indeed.
