Brent Bozell, President of the MRC which runs NewsBusters, appeared Monday night on FNC's Hannity & Colmes to discuss his new book published by Crown Forum, Whitewash: What the Media Won't Tell You About Hillary Clinton, But Conservatives Will. Sean Hannity called the book “timely,” hailed how he “loved” it and admired how it “weaves together a story about Hillary that the media won't tell.” Hannity and Alan Colmes also asked for Bozell's reaction to the low box office numbers for Robert Redford's anti-Iraq war movie, Lions for Lambs. Bozell suggested: “People don't want to go to a movie to see America's military trashed.”
Bozell is scheduled to appear Tuesday morning at about 7:40 AM EST on FNC's Fox & Friends and later in the day on CNBC's 7pm EST Kudlow & Company. He's also doing a lot of radio interviews over the next few days.

For general debate and discussion. Possible talking point: How serious are the recent crack's in Hillary's campaign? Will her two-week stumble lead to a train wreck, or will her campaign, aided by an adoring media, regain its footing in time for the upcoming primaries and caucuses?
For general debate and discussion. Possible talking point: What are your thoughts about what Musharraf is doing in Pakistan? Is this a righteous fight for his life and the future of democracy in his country, or a totally unacceptable abuse of power where the end does not justify the means?

Not a lot of great looking matchups today, or am I missing something?
Just for fun, and because a friend of mine is a Badger, I think Wisconsin at home can upset the Wolverines. Or am I out of my mind?
Lookout for those Red Raiders upsetting the Horns. Or am I out of my mind?
My Bears are going to make me REALLY angry and actually beat the Trojans leading many Northern Californians like myself to wonder what might have been if we hadn't stumbled against two teams we should have easily beaten.
Finally, the game of the day is Auburn vs. Georgia. Having gone to school for one year in Atlanta, I know what this game means to folks down there. And, for it to happen with both teams playing so well, this one is going to be a thing of beauty.
For general debate and discussion. Possible talking point: The current bearishness for the dollar is like nothing I've ever seen. Honestly, is there ANYBODY bullish on the dollar?
With that in mind, could ALL these people be right, and the dollar is going MUCH lower? Or, as contrarian analysis dictates, when so many people agree on the future direction of an asset, it has to start going the other way?
Also, are you concerned about a low dollar? How is it impacting you, your business, or your personal finances if at all?

For general debate and discussion. Possible talking point: How concerned are you about the situation in Pakistan? Where do you see this crisis heading and how will it impact the war on terror? If Musharraf is replaced by an Islamic theocrat, is it a darned-good thing Saddam Hussein is no longer ruling Iraq?
For general debate and discussion. Possible talking point: Did last night's green nonsense interfere with your Sunday Night Football viewing pleasure? Or, like me, have you mostly ignored this game because of Olbermann's disgraceful presence?
For general debate and discussion. Possible talking point: as it seems inappropriate to discuss tomorrow, what do folks think about Halloween? Is there any value to this "holiday" whatsoever, or just a clever way for snack and candy companies to sell their wares?

How's real estate doing in your area? Where I live in Northern California, the middle-income and higher areas are doing just fine. It's the lower income sections, where apparently more sub-prime mortgages were issued, that are seeing declining prices and large inventories. What are you seeing? Is it as bad as the media are making out?
