Nancy Pelosi, governor of Texas?

Melanie Mason, DMN:

Led by Sen. John Cornyn , 20 members of the Texas GOP congressional delegation have sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., urging her to strip a Texas-specific provision out of an upcoming spending bill.

The amendment, inserted by Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Austin, requires Texas to preserve current education funding levels through 2013 in order to receive $820 million in federal funds to protect teacher jobs. Texas is the only state to face specific requirements.

True or False: A vote for Chet Edwards is a vote in favor of Nancy Pelosi trying to dictate how Texas governs itself.

I seem to recall Nancy Pelosi pushing for Chet Edwards to be Obama's vicepresident and Edwards not exactly fighting it...

Bill White for Obama

I've gotten a few hits for people searching "Who did Bill White support for president?"

Answer: Barack Obama. But perhaps this means Bill White ducking Obama will have some effect?

Newsweek sells for $1

The Washington Post Co has picked Sidney Harman as its buyer for Newsweek because he promised no layoffs and is a Democrat. From the Daily Beast:

But make no mistake, Harman's pocket change purchase of Newsweek -- he paid $1, plus the assumption of liabilities for the magazine -- has to be a passion play, because it certainly isn't a financial one. The Daily Beast has obtained a copy of the 66-page sales memorandum that the Newsweek seller, the Washington Post Co., gave to prospective buyers, and it paints the picture of a media property given to someone unequipped to fundamentally change its current trajectory.

Much will depend on finding a near-genius editor and an inspired publisher and on their freedom and shared approach, as well as on their bankroll. As with many weeklies, Newsweek's financial freefall is jarring. Revenue dropped 38 percent between 2007 and 2009, to $165 million. Newsweek's negligible operating loss (not including certain pension and early retirement changes) of $3 million in 2007 turned into a bloodbath: the business lost $32 million in 2008 and $39.5 million in 2009. Even after reducing headcount by 33 percent and slashing the number of issues printed and distributed to readers each week from 2.6 million to 1.5 million, the 2010 operating loss is still forecast at $20 million.

You'd think Evan Smith might be on Harman's short list for Newsweek, wouldn't you?
