News Cycle Roundup: 4/2/2009

News Cycle Roundup time! Good morning! It's a wonderful 55 degrees here in NYC. And although I'd prefer mid-60s like the promise Spring brought growing up down south, I guess it won't be coming until May. Speaking of promises half fulfilled...
Media Matters is outraged because Fox News adopted the Republican budget op-ed as a Fox Fact .
Erick Ericson via Redstate: Grab your guns! Beat a state official! Fight for phosphates in Washington State! So what if it's federalism at work. It's not how I like it though. Revolution! Aargh!
I really don't like when people criticize polls for "oversampling." Oversampling implies the pollster intentionally picks more Democrats (or Republicans) to get a result, but this assumes that the nation is 33% Democrat, 33% Republican, and 33% independent. I seriously doubt that's true.
Froma Harrop: Liberal Democrats, be advised: You really need your Blue Dog counterparts .
American Spectator: Dodd is a Dud .
Scientific American: Economics and Rational Human Thought don't mix well .
Broder: Obama finally may be showing a little assertion .
