Hurtling Toward 2010, 8/5

More

The 2010 midterms are just around the corner (sort of). Here's what's happening:

Rep. Todd Tiahrt (R-KS) will get some help from former Drug Czar Bill Bennett and former House Speaker Dennis Hastert; the DCCC added 11 Republican targets to its health care offensive today; and Rep. Roy Blunt (R-MO), the former GOP whip who's running to replace retiring Sen. Kit Bond (R) this fall, says he doesn't want to talk about President Obama's birth certificate anymore after being identified as a potential birther by Firedoglake  (Blunt has said he has no reason to believe Obama was not born in the U.S.).
