Bush puts Yalta on par with Nazi-Soviet pact to partition Poland. Buchanan calls war against Hitler "not worth it." Next up, Santorum to decry rough shake Francisco Franco has gotten at the hands of Juan Carlos.

As of 11:54 AM, the FristFilibuster students are on the front page of NYTimes.com.

Who will back down first in the Mike Medved - Rep. Chris Chocola (R) grudge match?

As we noted yesterday, Rock the Vote's Hans Riemer went on Medved's show yesterday. And Medved not only denied that any Republican was for 'privatization' but once Hans confronted Medved with the Count's October 2000 quote (one of perhaps a million examples) endorsing total privatization of Social Security, Medved denied that Chocola was even a real congressman.

Now, admittedly, this places us in a somewhat compromised position, because we've never thought of the Count as a real congressman either. Still, you wouldn't think this is a charge the Count himself would sit still for.

Please let us know if Medved cuts the Count any slack on his show today or whether he keeps up his anti-Count crusade.

Late Update: Hans himself has an update. Check it out.

A criminal investigation into why those three non-Bush-loyalists were booted from the Bamboozlepalooza event in Denver back in March?

A local TV station reports that the lawyer for the three says his clients were questioned yesterday as "part of an investigation into whether a man dressed in a dark suit and wearing an earpiece criminally impersonated a Secret Service agent when he escorted the three Denver residents out of the March 21 event."

The local office of the Secret Service confirmed that they are conducting a continuing investigation but declined to comment on the specifics.

They've even made it into the Washington Times: "Yesterday, for example, [RNC Chair Ken] Mehlman hosted a conference call with College Republicans to rally support for the Bush nominees. But today, two Democratic senators -- Jon Corzine of New Jersey and Charles E. Schumer of New York -- will join Princeton University students in a mock filibuster in front of the Capitol Building."

Privatization Bamboozle Michael Medved Meltdown.

And the reality is even weirder than that convoluted phrase. See this post for the details.

The Count even gets dragged into the action.
