General David Petraeus is being mentioned as a candidate for the Commander of CENTCOM, which has oversight of Iraq, Afghanistan, and all operations in the Middle East. Why, exactly, his performance in the Iraq theater qualifies him for this responsibility is unclear.

Hillary Rodham Clinton made a point of mentioning that Barack Obama had 'outspent her three-to-one' in Pennsylvania, even as she asked her supporters for donations.

I'm just waiting for the Clinton campaign to imply Obama's success at fundraising is proof that he's elitist.

But perhaps Hillary's supporters should consider that Clinton's foundering financial outlook doesn't exactly speak well of a candidate who says she's ready to lead when that '3 AM economic crisis' hits.

The North Carolina GOP is preparing to air a commercial questioning Barack Obama's relationship with Rev. Jeremiah Wright, highlighting Wright's 'God damn America' remarks.

McCain better duck, because his own pastoral canard, John Hagee, has more than a few verbal landmines strewn about on the campaign trail, including blaming Hurricane Katrina on gays, implying that God did smite New Orleans because of a planned gathering by homosexuals.

McCain has vaguely disavowed the ad as not representing his own views; Obama has commented that McCain should be more forceful, as he is the GOP's standard bearer.

The North Carolina GOP is saying the ad will air as planned.

While Bob Schieffer's observations remain the definitive statement about flag pins, here's a handy reference as to media types who are wearing said pins ... or not. Which should underscore how superficial and idiotic the question is.
