  • Sex and the Single Candidate

    Looks like Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker has a crush on a new man: Harold Ford, Jr. Parker will co-host a March 23rd New York fund-raiser for Ford. For $1,000, you get dinner at the Palace Hotel with Ford and 50 other swells. For $300 you can hang at a VIP open bar party at Crobar with Ford and SJP. For $100 you can party at Crobar and see Harold and Jessica onstage for 20 minutes. And, proving that there’s something for every budget, you can get a late-night dessert and policy discussion for $250. Finally, if you love a bargain, you can get the whole magical evening for $1,250.

    Survey USA provides monthly polling numbers on various issues, state by state. The latest approval/disapproval polling on President Bush shows some startling reversals of fortune. There are only four states as of March 15th in which a majority of Americans "approve" of the job President Bush is doing.

    In Arkansas, Bush has fallen 28 points since November, to a 34 percent approval rating. In Tennessee, things aren't much better for W, at 39 percent. But Mississippi? Those folks still loves them some Bush — barely: 49 percent of Magnolia Staters approve the Prez, versus 47 percent who disapprove.

    C'mon, Mississippi! Time to catch up with the rest of the country.
