The very end of Chew: Barack and Roll

Chew on these tasty link:

  1. Barack Obama is on a crusade.

    But we’re not talking about a push for universal health care, or his tax plan to soak the rich. Instead, we refer to the Senator’s efforts to ban electronic ratings monitoring.

  2. Democratic politicians–including Barack Obama– are mounting a frivilous attempt to block more accurate technology used to measure audiences for radio stations and other media.

    And, sure enough, New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo has made good on his promise to file suit against Arbitron,(via In From the Cold

  8. a tree falls in the forest:

    BAGHDAD — Market by market, square by square, the walls are beginning to come down. The miles of hulking blast walls, ugly but effective, were installed as a central feature of the surge of American troops to stop neighbors from killing one another.
    ….
    “They protected against car bombs and drive-by attacks,” said Adnan, 39, a vegetable seller in the once violent neighborhood of Dora, who argues that the walls now block the markets and the commerce that Baghdad needs to thrive. “Now it is safe.”

    The slow dismantling of the concrete walls is the most visible sign of a fundamental change here in the Iraqi capital.

    A Question of Barack Obama’s Character
    By Charles Krauthammer

    Do you? Obama is a man of first-class intellect and first-class temperament. But his character remains highly suspect. There is a difference between temperament and character. Equanimity is a virtue. Tolerance of the obscene is not.

    Dodd and Countrywide
    The Senator should take the witness stand.

    The Connecticut Senator has been out front denouncing the “companies that form the foundation of our financial markets,” for “their insatiable appetite for risk.” He has also decried “reckless, careless and sometimes unscrupulous actors in the mortgage lending industry” and he has proclaimed that “American taxpayers deserve to know how we arrived at this moment.” To that end, we propose he take the stand — under oath.

    Former Countrywide Financial loan officer Robert Feinberg says Mr. Dodd knowingly saved thousands of dollars on his refinancing of two properties in 2003 as part of a special program the California mortgage company had for the influential. He also says he has internal company documents that prove Mr. Dodd knew he was getting preferential treatment as a friend of Angelo Mozilo, Countrywide’s then-CEO.
