Laura's Daily E-Blast - July 30, 2008
Posted by Staff
SERIOUSLY, COULD THE TIMING BE ANY WORSE?! Just when the GOP had a few sparks of hope -- Sen. Coburn's defeat of the so-called Advancing America's Priorities Act, Democrats' politically inept refusal to permit wildly popular offshore drilling -- Alaska's Republican Sen. Ted Stevens went and got himself indicted. The seven felony counts leveled yesterday center on gifts he received from Vexo, an Alaskan oil company. Will he step down? Republicans in trouble usually do.

PROFESSOR OBAMA, SLACKER: The New York Times reports today that in the 12 years Sen. Barack Obama spent teaching at the University of Chicago Law School, he never completed a single work of legal scholarship! Richard Epstein, a former Obama colleague and one of the most influential legal scholars alive, observed that "His entire life, as best I can tell, is one in which he's always been a thoughtful listener and questioner, but he's never stepped up to the plate and taken full swings." Could it be that the candidate of Hope! and Change! was concerned the content of his writing might come back to haunt him later in his political career? Or maybe he was too busy running five political races during his twelve years there? Most likely, it was both: Obama spent every moment scheming plots for higher office.
