Daily YouTube: Anderson Cooper, Stuffed Shirt or Serious Journalist?

Anderson Cooper takes his journalism seriously, yet he doesn't seem to take himself too seriously. All things considered, that's no small task for an attractive, successful man born with a Vanderbilt silver spoon in his mouth...

But does this YouTube video (below) reveal him to be a stuffed shirt or an above-the-fray, conflict-of-interest free journalist?

I vote responsible journalist. Cooper makes an excellent point about too-close fraternization between the White House and the supposedly objective press.

What do you think?

Daily YouTube: John McCain's Baloney on Iraq

No wonder John McCain is experiencing problems raising funds for his stalled 2008 run for the White House. Seems the Straight-Talk Express has a proverbial flat tire.

Sen. McCain was admired for his forthrightness... his unflinching grasp on reality, and his perceived compulsion to face and state the truth.

But judging by this CNN clip from March 27, 2007 , McCain has lost touch with the reality-based world, much like the White House has, on the Iraq War.

John McCain without honesty is just another old, angry, cynical politician. And we have too many of those already...

Daily YouTube - Elizabeth Edwards: "Decency Costs Nothing"

This touching YouTube video illustrates why I admire Elizabeth Edwards.

On this day that she announced a recurrence of her breast cancer, take a minute to appreciate her insightful message, originally broadcast on CBS News in December 2006.

Daily YouTube: John Edward's Narcissism on Display

John Edwards and his gorgeous head of hair.

Just because I'm a Democrat doesn't mean I don't find this hilariously, and frighteningly, narcissistic...

Thanks to
