The Corner:
The Paul-Bearers Carry On [David Freddoso]  —  Rep. Ron Paul (Tex.) ended Guy Fawkes Day having done something no Republican has ever done before.  He raised almost $4 million over the Internet without spending so much as a thin dime (beyond transaction fees, of course).
Jim Kuhnhenn / Associated Press:
Ron Paul Raises More Than $4.2 Million  —  WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, aided by an extraordinary outpouring of Internet support Monday, hauled in more than $4.2 million in nearly 24 hours.  —  Paul, the Texas congressman with a libertarian tilt and an out-of-Iraq pitch …
Ed Morrissey / Captain's Quarters:
Ron Paul's Very Big Day  —  Say what you will about Ron Paul and his supporters, but they know how to raise money.  Using Guy Fawkes and the movie V For Vendetta as a questionable hook for a fundraiser, Paul's campaign took in over $4 million in a single day — and without spending hardly any money at all, except transaction fees.

A Vote for Justice  —  I AM voting today to support Michael B. Mukasey for attorney general for one critical reason: the Department of Justice — once the crown jewel among our government institutions — is a shambles and is in desperate need of a strong leader, committed to depoliticizing the agency's operations.

A Caracas Musharraf  —  Latin America: As Pakistan's tightening dictatorship draws global opprobrium, a curious double standard is emerging in Venezuela as democracy gasps its last and celebrities continue to file in.  Where's the decency?  —  That's what was seen in the message sent …

Cable Channel Nods to Ratings and Leans Left  —  Riding a ratings wave from "Countdown With Keith Olbermann," a program that takes strong issue with the Bush administration, MSNBC is increasingly seeking to showcase its nighttime lineup as a welcome haven for viewers of a similar mind.
Toby Harnden / Telegraph:
Even Fred Thompson doubts he'll be president  —  Even Fred Thompson doesn't think he will become president.  Chatting off-air to a television reporter, a stunningly candid off-the-cuff quip from the Hollywood actor cemented the impression that his heart is not in the 2008 race.
Mike Soraghan / The Hill:
Terrorists are 'running out of people to kill,' says Obey  —  If violence is decreasing in Iraq, it may be because insurgents "are running out of people to kill," House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey (D-Wis.) said Monday.  —  "There are fewer targets of opportunity," Obey said in a speech to the National Press Club.

New York Times:
The Pakistan Mess  —  By imposing martial law, Gen. Pervez Musharraf has pushed nuclear-armed Pakistan further along a perilous course and underscored the failure of President Bush's policy toward a key ally in the war on terrorism.  The events should not have come as a surprise to administration officials.
Michelle Malkin:
All aboard the impeachment bandwagon: Cheney first, Bush next  —  I told you on Friday about Dennis Kucinich's privileged resolution to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney.  Well, today's the day.  The UFO-spotter will hold a press conference at 3pm Eastern.
