- As a student of politics and a reader of McCain's second book, it has surprised me that the Keating Five has not been a bigger deal for McCain's presidential bid. I think the Keating 5 was blown out of perspective when it happened. McCain is guilty (as are the other 4) of not being aware what was going on, but I doubt anyone outside of Keating did anything with sinister motives. Schulz picked this up, but is a little less forgiving.
- Schulz also picked up that the Wall Street Journal has squashed Palin's claim that she rejected the bridge to nowhere. Granted she was probably was acting out of political necessity, but it's unfair to brag about it now.
- Bravo to Luke Ravenstahl on his efforts to have the state help fix Pittsburgh's (and other municipalities') pension problems. It's exactly what REPRESENTATIVES are supposed to do, represent us.
- Bravo to Bram for this comment, "It would also be helpful to have a column on the website listing the political contributions of all contract winners, bidders and principals involved."
