Things to read today

From the daily kos:

Sources confirmed that freshman Rep. Rodney Alexander's (R) entire DC staff resigned today, in reaction to his last-minute party switch. The staff, en masse this a.m., handed in letters of resignation and returned office keys.

Bush is losing it

Bush also said high taxes on the rich are a failed strategy because "the really rich people figure out how to dodge taxes anyway."

Kerry's Battleground State Bounce

August SUSA polling is showing Kerry beating Bush by 52-41 in Michigan, by 53-41 in Pennsylvania, and by 51-43 in Washington. ARG polling done in August shows Kerry up 50-43 in Florida, and atop Bush 49-42 in New Hampshire. Outside the battleground states, Kerry leads Bush by 20% in New Jersey in a poll done by Rutgers. And Bush leads Kerry by just 2% in Tennessee in a SUSA poll. Both done in August.

Because, aside from its extraordinarily right-wing editorial page, no newspaper does a better job explaining just how unfair the American economy has become to the middle class and continually documenting the growing divide between America's rich and poor.
