In The News:
Thanks this morning to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the news and commentary audio files.

Due to technical difficulties there is some 'garbling' in the last few seconds of the news audio.

Republican congressional contender Carly Fiorina has been hospitalized with an infection and it may be a week or more until she's back on the campaign trail against incumbent Democrat Barbara Boxer.

Also, Meg Whitman was booed at yesterday at a women's college conference in Southern California when she resisted toning down the 'hit' campaign ads against Democrat Jerry Brown.

In the rest of the country many races are too close to call and voters are obviously restless >>> angry about the economy, a lost trillion dollar war, and other issues.

Speaking of "Lost Trillion Dollar Wars", The latest from Afghanistan is they're talking about talking, but in the real news, two days ago the New York Times said the Iranians were funding the Karzai presidency by sending $1 million dollars a year in discretionary funds, and despite Karzai's rejection of blame, and accusations of the US doing the same, the White House laughably denies sending "Big Bags Of Cash", like they did with the Iraqi government.

As reported last week:
Who would have thought there'd be gunfire (or that said gunfire would be news) near the building that houses the people who control most of the planet's fired weapons? Shots fired at Pentagon, no injuries. The person who did this appears to have 'experience':
Director of the Pentagon Force Protection Agency Steven Calvery said he considered the shooting to be "a random event" and did not foresee any new security measures.

But he added that the investigation was continuing and that authorities were looking for any possible link to a shooting over the weekend at the nearby National Museum of the Marine Corps, which also only caused minor damage to the building.

"Right now we consider this just a random event. But if our investigation and others' ascertain that it's part of a larger incident, we would have to evaluate that," Calvery told a Pentagon news briefing.

The Pentagon was one of the targets of the September 11, 2001 attacks and Calvery said the Joint Terrorism Task Force was assisting in the Pentagon investigation, along with local police.

Still, it appeared as if investigators had little firm initial evidence. No bullet casings have been found or suspects identified. While investigators believe a high-velocity rifle was used, ballistic tests still needed to be done. (Reuters) (src)
There have been ballistics tests done and the shots fired at various federal buildings and memorials, including the US Marine Memorial appear to have come from the same weapon.

A quick election statistic... Tallying the seats up for grabs in the house and senate races, there has been an average $4 million dollars spent for each.

There may be ramifications to US/Eastern European relations due to a Saudi citizen who was a suspect in the USS Cole bombing having been granted "Victim Status" by the Polish government... because they appear to have evidence that his torture and other abuse at the hands of CIA personnel and their hired henchmen happened on Polish soil.

George Soros, who has already backed other drug reform initiatives (including the not-yet-fully-acted-on Measure K, demanding the prioritization of police activities, which by rote would put Marijuana enforcement at the bottom, in Razer's hometown) chips in $1 million dollars on the Prop 19 campaign in California.

Democrats: 'If We're Gonna Lose, Let's Go Down Running Away From Every Legislative Accomplishment We've Made'

October 27, 2010

WASHINGTON—Conceding almost certain Republican gains in next month's crucial midterm elections, Democratic lawmakers vowed Tuesday not to give up without making one final push to ensure their party runs away from every major legislative victory of the past two years.

Party leaders told reporters that regardless of the ultimate outcome, they would do everything in their power from now until the polls closed to distance themselves from their hard-won passage of a historic health care overhaul, the toughest financial regulations since the 1930s, and a stimulus package most economists now credit with preventing a second Great Depression.

"There's a great deal on the line, and we know it isn't going to be easy for us," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), speaking from the steps of the Capitol. "But if we suffer defeat, we will do so knowing we cowered away from absolutely anything we produced that was even remotely progressive or valuable in any way."

"And we will keep cowering right up until Election Day," Reid continued. "From Maine to Hawaii, in big cities and small towns, we will collapse into a fetal position and refuse to take credit for our successes anywhere voters could conceivably be swayed by learning what we have achieved on their behalf."

Democrats are spending millions of dollars on a last-minute campaign to remind Americans how utterly spineless they are.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) acknowledged the task would be difficult, but said Democrats would remain steadfast in permitting their opponents to deride... In Full
