Continuing this week’s somber themes, here’s a song for the unemployed who have lost more than a paycheck. It’s The Roches, performing “Losing Our Job” in Princeton, New Jersey, in 1990.

    It looks like here are a few feuds going on. WaPo, Politico, ABC, a few others, have all declared the Clinton Rules are now in effect: It doesn't matter if a story if utterly bogus, they are all happy to report on it.

    ABC seems to be leading the pack, Jon Karl is a vicious hack. It's funny that former ABC'er Jake Tapper is making him look foolish.

    I really hope we are not going to revisit the media atrocities of the Clinton era, but alas, Sally Quinn and other media tabbies won't be ignored.
