(no subject)

Catch up on Howard Kurtz's media rodeo, with stuff on Colombia, the Democrats' posse, and more. Let me recommend the section from American Prospect's Robert Kuttner as comedy gold.

"The Democratic transformation of the Greater Middle East should be the next big trans-Atlantic project following the fall of the wall and the consolidation of a peaceful Europe, including the former Eastern bloc." -Ronald Asmus, former deputy assistant secretary of state in the Clinton administration, now a senior fellow at the German Marshall Fund

Also, all the news this week will be about the president's new "budget." I airquote because it doens't tend to follow the traditional parts of being a budget, for instance, explaining where all this money is coming from. Check all the social programs getting cut!

And in case you missed it, six more weeks, baybee.
