Favoritism to the Max

These stories have a common thread:

1. From Bloomberg: Arab Banking Corp., the lender part-owned by the Central Bank of Libya, a New York branch to get 73 loans from the U.S. Federal Reserve in the 18 months after Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. collapsed....

2. in Madison, WI reports that "26-year-old Katherine Windels sent disturbing emails to 16 Republican senators, repeatedly threatening to kill them.

"Windels, of Cross Plains, faces four charges including using a computer to send a threat and creating a bomb scare...." [no mention of her union membership; also, she is not in custody at this time]

3. Media Research Center reminds us how much slack the dinosaur media are giving President Obama for intervening in the Libyan civil war. Andrea Mitchell of NBC has said, “This intervention could wind up being Barack Obama’s finest hour. His intentions are pure — this is a humanitarian mission, not blood for oil. We’ve got a coalition with us, the United Nations, the Arab League. And the diplomacy has truly been masterful — future military planners will surely use Obama’s Libya template as a guide.” She was not so patient and forgiving when President George W. Bush went to war in Iraq to overthrow Saddam Hussein.
