Our weird situation in Iraq
John Robb: “The US military is now ‘nominally’ in charge of both the Iraqi insurgency and the Iraqi military/police.”

McCain’s strategy vs. Obama?
Josh Marshall: “The core is to drill a handful of key adjectives into the public mind about Barack Obama: Muslim, anti-American, BLACK, terrorist, Arab. Maybe a little hustler and shifty thrown in, but we’ll have to see.”

Lakoff on Clinton vs. Obama
This podcast interview just gets better as it goes on. Follow-up post from interviewer Dave Winer: “If you really want to understand why the Obama campaign is working and the Clinton campaign is fading, Lakoff understands it, and if you press him, he’ll get out of professor mode, and tell you how it works in words anyone with a brain and an education can understand. That’s his gift.”
