In the "How Are We Going to Be Able to Tell?" category, cable network MSNBC has announced that Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann will, henceforth, be "commentators" rather than news anchors at political events.

When the invitations went out about a week ago, I thought about calling Gay Finlayson to see if she was going, but decided against it. I don't know why. Probably because syndicated talk show host Michael Savage is such a horse's patootie that I didn't want to bother Gay with him. Then I saw that a group of San Francisco parents of kids with autism were demonstrating on Tuesday and calling for Savage's firing, which of...

His $50-million-a-year paycheck represents a raise of about $14.4 million a year over his current contract, which was paying him $285 million over eight years and was set to expire in 2009. The deal - struck a month short of the 20th anniversary of "The Rush...
