Quick Political Notes

Gabrielle Giffords will be on CNN’s “The Situation Room” today. The SR runs from 2 to 4 this afternoon…Cox channel 31 and Comcast channel 24. Sorry, don’t know exactly when on the show she’ll appear. Then she'll be on CNN's "Lou Dobbs Tonight" at 4:00 pm.


George Tuttle, a Latas supporter whose comments you’ve read on The Data Port, has taken the plunge and started his own blog. It’s called “Stand up and be counted,” and you can take a look at it here.

He has joined Tedski in not allowing anonymous comments and he asks that discussion be kept relevant and civil. I approve both sentiments.

Thanks for the plug.

I hope I won't disappoint.

I know Tedski was hammered when he disallowed anonymous comments. I thought about this issue and since I am new to this field, I thought it was best that I keep it on a civil level.

Thanks again-George

I didn't see her on the Situation Room but the big story was the Republican revolt over the port management issue. Either she was bumped, or I was away from the TV when she was on.

Her appearance on Dobbs was part of a border security piece. Hardly more than a sentence or two,the appearance certainly didn't do her any harm but I suspect it was too fleeting to do her much good.

The CNN appearance just gives her "bragging rights," like a one sentence mention in the NY Times.
