For this Labor Day weekend update on the War on Workers, let’s revisit a video we saw from Change to Win earlier in the summer: Bob Herbert writes: Three to four trillion dollars worth of improvements will be needed over the next decade just to bring the infrastructure into a reasonable state of repair. Meanwhile, we’ve got legions of unemployed construction workers, manufacturing workers, engineers and others who are ready and eager to step into the breach, to take on jobs ranging from infrastructure maintenance and repair to infrastructure design and new construction.

Fifty states in the Union. Which ones will get the most attention next year? Though it rankles some (I can personally recall some scintillating pie fights on the subject during the era of debates over a “50-state strategy” back in the day), it is inevitable that some states will receive more attention than others at election time. Attention can be defined in numerous ways.

Fifty years ago, in the midst of a fierce political debate surrounding the United States’ immigration policies, a young senator named John F. Kennedy penned an essay called “A Nation of Immigrants.” It was a groundbreaking book, asserting urgently and poignantly that our nation’s greatness owes much to the immigrants among us. As current headlines make clear, Kennedy’s plea is as timely and necessary as ever. The United States is — and always has been — a nation of immigrants, though we continue to struggle to come to terms with the fact.

Robert Gibbs pokes fun at Sarah Palin from his presidential podium. Giving a high profile dig to someone not in office, running for any office, or having any official role anywhere in the country. That’s a lot of attention for someone who supposedly doesn’t matter. The White House getting a little sloppy with their arrogance. It’s not like Sarah’s viability has spiked. A new ABC/Washington Post poll finds her unfavorable numbers at 55%, with her support among Republicans down.

It’s tough getting up to the front of the line of those wanting to call Sarah Palin for the truckload of lies spewed in Going Rogue . Even John McCain has gotten into the act by charging Palin with fabricating a $50,000 bill she claimed she got stuck with for her “vetting” and by praising the two aides targeted by Palin, Steve Schmidt and Nicolle Wallace. Up in Alaska, the line is just as contentious.
