Ari Melber is a great young reporter who covers Netroots for The Nation and is posting frequent dispatches from the Obama campaign trail at The Washington Independent (www.washingtonindependent.com

)  His real-time account of the origins of the lipstick-on-pig faux controversy last week was priceless.

I'm cross-posting this item he's running today, based on his appearance on my show last Friday.  As he points out, I'm blessed with callers who are well informed and have interesting views.
