More talk of “death panels” on TalkingPointsMemo’s day in 100 seconds.
To be fair, no one in Colville at Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ town hall meetings this week — not her, not the audience — used the term “death panel”… unless you count me in an interview with her between events.
Fear and loathing on the town hall circuit, which if you believe the national broadcast and cable news talking heads, is everywhere. Truth be told, not quite everywhere: in Colville yesterday, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers was met with some pointed questions, but there was no shouting, no banners and no guns…well, at least none that were pulled out and brandished. That’s not to say that no one had something handy in a pickup, or a purse.

Things apparently got testy for Sen. Arlen Specter when he had his town hall meeting in Lebannon, Pa., yesterday.
Apparently many, many times over the course of 100 seconds, as this clip from TalkingPointsMemo shows.
You all knew this was going to happen, but Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation still dominated the cable news on Thursday. The funniest thing seemed to be that after months of the nomination-and-hearing process, some people still have trouble pronouncing her name.
Here’s the rundown from TalkingPointsMemo.
The release of two journalists dominated the national news on Wednesday. Here’s a clip from TalkingPointsMemo.
Tuesday was Obama’s birthday…although if one doubts he was born in the U.S., shouldn’t one also doubt the day? The celebration plus a preview of Congress’s upcoming dog days of summer in this video from TalkingPointsMemo.
Spin Control experienced light blogging over the weekend because I was in Vegas being separated from my money on Sat. and Sun., and tied up with a non-political story Monday.
Apologies to readers wondering What’s going on?
Here’s a quick look at the big news of Monday, a question of taxes and lip reading, from the folks at TalkingPointsMemo, with a promise of more local stuff to follow today.
Apparently, there wasn’t much for the national news media to report on Thursday, so they concentrated on Obama having a beer with a couple guys from Cambridge, Mass. TalkingPointsMemo distills it down to its essence.

Finally off single topic synopses, TalkingPointsMemo compiles clips of beer, blue dogs and Sonia Sotomayor from Tuesday.

High noon on health care? Tuesday in review from TalkingPointsMemo.
Sonia Sotomayor finished up her hearings Thursday, and apparently didn’t have a “melt down.” Quick highlights from TalkingPointsMemo.
The confirmation hearings of Sonia Sotomayor continue for the third day in the U.S. Senate, where she continues to get questions about wise Latina women and Sen. Tom Coburn , R-Okla., tries to channel Ricky Ricardo, and Sen. Al Franken, D-SatNiteLive, signs up for the Perry Mason fan club. The best of a long day, from the folks at TalkingPointsMemo.
Sonia Sotomayor hearings continued Tuesday. Here’s 100 seconds worth of it from TalkingPointsMemo.
Sonia Sotomayor’s first day of hearings coincided with All-Star Game eve. Which may explain all the baseball analogies in yesterday’s hearings. Before catching Tuesday’s hearings, here’s a quick recap of yesterday’s spin, from the folks at TalkingPointsMemo:
