Not Ready for Prime Time, Christine O'Donnell Cancels Appearances on Sunday Shows -
the latest tea party darling who won the Republican Senate nomination in Delaware last week will not be appearing on Fox New Sunday and CBS "Face The Nation". has more here.

One only has to look back to when Rand Paul, another tea party favorite, won the Kentucky Republican Senate primary or when Sharon Angle won the Nevada Republican primary. They appeared on the Sunday talk shows immediately afterward and it was readily apparent they were far right wing nuts who was not ready for prime time.

Seems O'Donnell's handlers got the message. The latest revelation on Christine O'Donnell is she dabbled in "witchcraft". Apparently comedian Bill Maher has clips from a show from 1999 with O'Donnell talking about one of her first dates being with a witch at a satanic alter. has more here. Stay tuned...


Abercrombie wins Democratic Governor primary in Hawaii -
he easily beat former Honolulu mayor Mufi Hanneman 60-38% with more than half of the precincts reporting. Former Representative Neil Abercrombie will face Republican James "Duke" Aiona. has more here.


Why "Citizens United" was a bad decision -
newly established 501(c)(4) committees have no requirement to list donors and have no limits on expenditures on political campaigns. This applies equally to unions and businesses, with businesses having the advantage.

President Obama, in his weekly address yesterday pointed out republicans were blocking legislation which would require the donors be identified and the share holders of corporation be informed of political spending of corporations.

The NY Times has a good editorial you can read here.
