Cavuto Battles the Health Care Jihad
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales was back in a familiar place Tuesday, on Capitol Hill testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the US Attorney firings. Past Gonzales hearings have been ugly, but none have compared with the ugliness of the latest round.
Did you hear about the War on Iran Authorization bill the Senate is going to vote on perhaps as early as today? No, that's not how it's getting billed. But that's what the 'Kyl-Lieberman' amendment is. In fact, the supporters of going to war against Iran are using exactly same strategy with this amendment that they did to lay the ground work for the Iraq War.
Tomorrow night the Republican presidential candidates will debate in Dearborn, Michigan - the first debate of the full Fred-Thompson-included GOP field. With Thompson's feeble performance on the campaign trail thus far, Rudy Giuliani's fundamental obstacles in winning over the religious right wing of the party, and Mitt Romney's, well, chronic Mitt Romneyism, we thought we'd check the enthusiasm temperature of the Republican party. Catch the GOP '08 fever!!!
Over the weekend President Pervez Musharraf declared a State of Emergency in Pakistan, instituting martial law, suspending the constitution, and firing the chief justice of the supreme court. Police have also begun rounding up scores of lawyers, judges, and activists, and the state has taken control of many of the private television stations and raided newspaper offices. This puts the Bush administration in a nearly impossible bind: oppose a Musharraf dictatorship or continue to support a leader who has been one of America's lone allies in the region in waging the war on terror. All this under the specter of a nuclear power teetering on the brink of failed statehood.

If it's Sunday... it's Joe Lieberman sputtering nonsense. In a TPMtv Sunday Show Roundup we bring you Senator Lieberman's latest ravings, and the opposing rationality of, well, everybody else.
You've probably heard from Bill O'Reilly all about the hate and depravity that goes on at the Daily Kos website and at its annual orgy of obscenity and atrocity, the YearlyKos Convention. Never one to shrink from evil, intrepid TPMtv has endeavored to venture into the belly of the beast.
As the final chapter in our Yearly Kos 2007 coverage, TPMtv interview the Kos himself, Markos Moulitsas, and tries to figure out the significance and future of the convention, and of the netroots as a whole.
On the Ground in Ames
While you may have heard that Mitt Romney recently won the Ames Straw Poll, most non-Iowans probably have no idea what the Ames Straw Poll actually is, or what it looks like. Luckily, helpful TPMtv viewer Greg Hauenstein attended the Straw Poll and filed a report direct from Ames to show us how this fabled event actually plays out in person.
