Around the Blogosphere This Week

It's been an unusually hectic few days, between my business and the resumption of homeschool lessons. I'm closely following political news, in particular, but haven't had the time I'd like to write about it. Here are some of the interesting stories which have caught my eye lately...

At the link above (click title of post): Is New York in Play? It may not be close enough for McCain to win, but close enough that Obama will have to divert time and financial resources away from battleground states to secure New York. Interesting... (Tuesday Update: It now appears Obama will also have to defend New Jersey.)

Real Clear Politics Electoral Map: RCP has McCain in the lead in the Electoral College...and so does Karl Rove.

ABC News Edited Out Key Parts of Sarah Palin Interview: And what's more, Charles Gibson applied a vastly different standard to his questions than he used for Senator John Edwards in 2004, despite Edwards' sketchy resume. Gibson also lobbed softballs to Senator Barack Obama this past summer.

Bring Your Own Camera: That's the advice to candidates from Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit, who says that policy will prevent networks from repeating the kind of biased editing job they pulled on Governor Palin.

Charlie Gibson's Gaffe: Dr. Krauthammer, who coined the phrase "the Bush Doctrine," explains why Charles Gibson was in error.

McCain Flies His Campaign Past Obama: Michael Barone on how fighter pilot John McCain got inside Obama's "OODA Loop."

Palin Did Not Ban Books In Wasilla As Mayor: What's the old saying, a rumor is out the door before truth gets its shoes on? The bogus stories which have circulated about Governor Palin over the past couple weeks boggle the mind.

How Team Obama Pays Women: When it comes to putting women in positions of authority and paying them equal to or even better than men, it's the Republican McCain who is soundly in the lead.
