Saturday stuff

Some news you might have missed: did you know that earlier this week, President Obama basically lied?:
"There seems to be a set of folks who—I don't doubt their sincerity—who just believe that we should do nothing," [President Obama] said. But in truth, few of those involved in the stimulus debate are suggesting that the government should not take action to aid the cratering economy.
Many of the president's fiercest congressional critics support a stimulus package of similar size but think it should be built around a much higher proportion of tax cuts than new spending. Others have called for a plan that is half the size of the one headed for a House-Senate conference—still massive by historical standards."

Good news for Republicans--polls indicate that Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd (D) may be in trouble--his favorability ratings are tanking.
