Well, to my great disappointment, Mookie only got his 6 minutes.

Tonight's guests start with William D. Cohan who isn't the one you think.  Sebastian begs the question, "Why won't institutional Demorcrats nominate someone who actually is, you know, a Democrat to Secretary of Defense?  Someone like General Wesley Clark, Supreme Allied Commander Europe of NATO, valedictorian of his class at West Point, Rhodes Scholar?

Not that I always agree with his positions mind you, but there is no denying the man is well qualified.

Why hang on to a W toady like Robert Gates?

Anyway, Bill David is not actually a journalist, don't let his degrees fool you.  He's a Bankster who writes.

Prior to becoming a journalist, he worked on Wall Street for seventeen years. He spent six years at Lazard Frères in New York, then Merrill Lynch & Co., and later became a managing director at JP Morgan Chase. He also worked for two years at GE Capital.
He'll be on to whore his new book The Price of Silence, about the lacrosse case at Duke, where he got his undergraduate degree.  No conflict of interest there, no siree.

Robert Rodriguez is a film director from Texas.  He directed The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl which isn't as terrible as you might think and Spy Kids which is exactly that bad.

He'll want to talk about Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
