Three things up for your consideration on today's Newseum edition of the Political Junkie (NEPOJU). First, Ken Rudin. Need we say more? Second, Senator Barack Obama's trip has been more than covered (see third topic), and we wondered -- what's it like to go on one of these junkets? Representative Christopher Shays (R-CT) has gone to Iraq 20 TIMES since 2003 -- he's got the lowdown. And then, last but not least -- media coverage of Senators Barack Obama and John McCain has people talking -- critics charge that the coverage of Obama's trip proves that there's a love affair going on. For more commentary, you must check out this hilarious Colbert clip. Enjoy.
