[Is this thing on?]

Sorry, short day, little reading or blogging until evening (if then). The two big stories of this week, from my viewpoint, are
  • The attempt to sell control of US ports to a company run by the government of the United Arab Emirates. Reasons why this is ludicrious (and not only to racists) listed here, amazement that Bush might pull out the veto power on this one (for the first time) here, likely misjudgement on how it plays with the base here.

  • Ciro Rodriguez, genuine progressive, hot on the tail of primary rival Henry Cuellar, DINO (and protegee of crazy Club for Growth rightwingers): backstory here, current status with two weeks to go here. This is a race for a Texas seat in the US House.
More on other rant-fodder a bit later...
