Hillary’s HOLC

Make Hillary’s HOLC the buzz-phrase of the day. Her plan is superior, so let’s get it done. The Senate votes on the bill today, and the bill still is not good enough. It won’t be without Hillary’s HOLC. Please call them. As Murphy reminds us, persuading Senators is not as easy as persuading Representatives. But it is still possible. So maybe we can’t stop the bail out, but we can leverage this sucker. Red Queen again has some good ideas. So think about what you want to ask for. Don’t call empty handed. Let them know you are prepared to vote against every single incumbent on the ticket, regardless of party, and then ask the for what you want. Tell them you’ll support the bill on your conditions. And make sure you mention the buzz-phrase for the day: Hillary’s HOLC.

Oh, and if you’re up to it, e-mail Janet H. Brown, Exec. Director of Debates Commission at jb@debates.org and ask her why Gwen Ifill is moderating Thursday’s debate when she stands to make a shitload of money on January 20th if Obama is elected. That’s the date her book, The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama, is scheduled to be released. Nothing impartial about that.

    I love that framing. And Murphy has already made emailing Gwen Ifill a PUMA Pac Prowl. I have no doubt that she will be out by the end of the day.

    As for the Ifill controversy, don’t most publishers choose the title of the book and the publication date? Everything that I’ve read is that the book isn’t only about Obama, but black politics in general.

    As for her remaining unbiased, I guess we’ll have to wait and see. Personally, I’m not so sure I wouldn’t have recused myself had I been her simply because I think more notice is going to be paid to her than to the 2 debators.

    Just my 2 cents worth.
