Podcast Yes, ScuttleButton No

There is, in life as well in the Political Junkie blog, good news and bad news.

The bad news is that ScuttleButton, America's favorite Waste of Time button puzzle, will not appear this week.  Seems like lots of folks are off gallivanting during this Labor Day holiday weekend, and studies show it to be not an especially high traffic time on the Internets.  Desperate as I am to find a large audience, I'm holding off the puzzle until next Friday.

But the good news — and yes, that's questionable — is that the latest episode of our "It's All Politics" podcast is up.

And, as always, there's lots to talk about.  The Obama speech about the war in Iraq.  The Murkowski speech about conceding the election in Alaska.  And what the Tea Party has planned for Delaware.

And, speaking of labor, you can listen to the latest episode right here:
