Cable News' Best New Addition ; Rachel Maddow

Unlike the person she's been filling in for, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow is far more level headed and it seems the New York Times noticed too.

As such, she's quietly become the newest talent of MSNBC and rightly so. She's a quietly spoken analyst and host, subtle enough that you have to watch closely for her take on a story.

Tell The Truthiness Says ; Rachel Maddow, just the type of person we need in these crazy times.

Saunter To The White House 103 ; McCain's Free Media Pass

War On Reality Part 97 ; George 'Harry Potter' Bush & His Oil Wand Of Destiny

President Bush did himself no favours by saying how much he wished he had a big wand to wave on oil prices. Yes, he really said it and we have the video tape.

Holding Them To Account 18 ; Fox Shown For What It Is

A fantastic short video showing the way Fox 'News' have trashed Michelle Obama ;

Tell The Truthiness Says ; Got to keep facing this type of thing down right through to November.

Dan & Keith Return To TV! Bulging Discs & All

Considering the reference in a recent post to Sportsnight, inspired by SportsCenter and the pairing of Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann, this news is rather eerie.

Dan and Keith are to reunite on TV to host NBC's Football Night In America.

Tell The Truthiness ; As a taster to those who don't know the magic of the pairing we've posted a recent Letterman interview with the two.

Iraq Wants US Forces Out - Period.

Mouwaffak al-Rubaie, Iraq's national security advisor, has said that there will be no deal on security with the United States unless it includes dates for the withdrawal of US forces.

As we know, President Bush is opposed to a timetable, but will have little choice if the Iraqis hold their ground.

Tell The Truthiness ; Guess this puts the brakes on Senator McCain's hundred years in Iraq. What's a guy to do?

The old chestnut of the Republican party, Osama Bin Laden, looks likely to be the fallback option of the GOP in the upcoming election.

This report from Time magazine says, again, that Bin Laden is suffering from kidney disease and has "no more than six to eighteen months to live."

Tell The Truthiness ; When all else fails, the Republicans go back to the only thing that works for them, scaring people.
