  • Hillary Clinton vs. John Cornyn: Rumble in the Rotunda

    Politico's Glenn Thrush reports on a run-in between Secretary of State nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican Sen. John Cornyn, the fellow who's delaying Hillary Clinton's confirmation as Secretary of State.

    I bet those two just have so much to say to each other…

    [Clinton and Cornyn] have been having a fairly heated (that is to say, intense but cordial) discussion just out of earshot under the Washington statue in the rotunda. Lots of hand gestures, back and forth and her squeezing his forearm.

    Cornyn's spokespeople are now claiming the conversation was "warm and cordial," which surely isn't an exaggeration.

    "Fairly heated" means "warm," right?

  • Don't Mess with Texas' Belief that Barack Obama is a Muslim

    A new poll from the University of Texas shows that John McCain and Republican Senator John Cornyn are favored to win in the Lone Star State.

    That's not the interesting part

    [T]he statewide survey of 550 registered voters has one very surprising finding: 23 percent of Texans are convinced that Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama is a Muslim….

    The Texas numbers are unusual because most national polls show that just 5 to 10 percent of Americans still believe Obama is a Muslim — less than half the number of Texans who buy into the debunked theories.

    Well, you know what they say: everything's bigger in Texas.

    Including, apparently, the delicious pitchers of Fox News Kool-Aid.
