The Note: Populism Now

Watch out, media covering Obama, citizens are on patrol, according to the Chicago Tribune's John McCormick, with the story of how WGN in Chicago was barraged with comments for an interview with an anti-Obama writer: "Now Obama's presidential campaign is increasingly using the list to beat back media messages it does not like, calling on supporters to flood radio and television stations when those opposed to him run anti-Obama ads or appear on talk shows."

McCain's campaign has found its most success attacking Sen. Obama's strengths and turning them into weaknesses and Democrats are trying a little bit of that themselves, launching a website tracking how often the candidate, perceived as open the press and committed to an open campaign, talks to the press. By their count its been 34 days.

The Kicker:

"I thought there was no press here tonight. Hmmm. YouTube junkies." -- Barbra Streisand, speaking at the Obama fundraiser on Los Angeles.

"I'm the only guy you know who doesn't drink." -- Sen. Joe Biden, riding the rails, and ordering a cranberry juice.
