The rumor that won't die
Al Eisele, writing for the "Huffington Post" Web site, sounded like he fell head over heels for Bill Richardson during the guv's speech Wednesday on nuclear security. But then he had to go and ruin all the gushing by bringing up that "Politico.com" smear job that was slammed, we told you Thursday, by "Media Matters." Eisele's conclusion:
"(I)f he can disprove gossip that he may have a Monica problem, continue raising alarms about the terrible and very real threat of nuclear terrorism, convince voters that he'll get us out of a disastrous war in Iraq, show us how to achieve energy independence, and inspire Americans to embrace diversity and build a more just society, he may well have a good chance of adding to his already illustrious résumé."
Maybe she can stop the gossip
Richardson announced on Thursday that Martha Burk, a renowned women's equity expert, author and political consultant, has joined his campaign as senior adviser for women's issues. Burk has a ton of feminista creds, including money editor for Ms. magazine, former board member for the National Organization for Women and former chairwoman of the National Council of Women's Organizations, where she spearheaded the effort to open the Augusta National Golf Club to women.
The reviews are in
At the "2008 Central" blog, one writer live-blogged Richardson's "Daily Show" appearance Wednesday night and found it a lot more entertaining than we did. "A+ on the appearance for Richardson. There's zero chance anyone saw that (except diehard Republicans) and was turned off."
Well, in fact, one was. And he's a Richardson supporter, too.
Douglas Lindner, writing on the "Intent Dissent" blog, said: "There was nothing wrong with the Richardson interview, but it wasn't as endearing as I had hoped. . . . Overall, a good interview, but `The Daily Show' is about as much exposure as a candidate can get in a single interview, and I wish the governor had been more focused on trying to persuade the 1.4 million (average) viewers to support his presidential bid."
Payday loans and China
Today, Richardson plans to sign the payday-lending bill and then meet with the ambassador of China. We know the two are connected somehow, given all the money we owe China.
At the "Daily Kos" blog, Isaiah had a post saying Richardson deserves the gay and Western vote for his support of gay-rights issues and for, um, well, we guess just being a Westerner. Our only question is whether he means voters who are both gay and Western or gay and/or Western, but we're kind of smart-alecky that way.
