Kickin' it for Kerry; kickbacks for Zell: Democratic wonderboy Barack Obama will be stumping for John Kerry in the final weeks of the election, while Democratic turncoat Zell Miller is reaping the rewards of selling out his party at the Republican convention.

Smart stoners: Fox's Bill O'Reilly says viewers of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart are just a bunch of "stoned slackers." Not so: turns out viewers or Stewart's show are more likely to have a four-year college degree than viewer's of The O'Reilly Factor. And the University of Pennsylvania's National Annenberg Election Survey said young viewers of The Daily Show were more likely to answer questions about politics correctly than those who don't. Maybe that's because, unlike O'Reilly's team (who recently made the incorrect assertion that Bush never said "Mission Accomplished"--Bush did), Stewart's band of stoners gets the facts right.

Soros power: Billionaire George Soros, demonized by the right for his support of progressive causes, is dialing up his efforts to oust Bush. His rationale for a 12-city tour: "President Bush is endangering our safety, hurting our vital interests and undermining American values. That is why I am sending this message." See what Soros is about, and look for his blog later this week, at GeorgeSoros.com.
