Improbably, RNC Chairman Michael Steele just keeps getting better. Guest-hosting a conservative talk radio program, he responded to a caller's suggestion he might be pressured to resign with, "Not me baby! Nuh-uh. Not happening." Steele also called the last disastrous week "a good week, an instructive week." Yup, and the economy is looking just swell, thanks.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight
Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
