Our complete idiot of a Vice President advises people to avoid the subway because of swine flu. Oh, no problem, you gonna send a car around for us?
“I didn’t anticipate the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression,” he said. “The typical president has two or three big problems, we have seven or eight.”
Hat-tip IC who writes “Huh? You were sworn in on Jan. 21. When did it hit you exactly?”

That’s pretty much the line of questioning the enchanting Obama got tonight. Pathetic? Sure. But anyone who has been expecting something different hasn’t been paying attention. Someone in Hot Air’s comment section said that Dennis Miller noted that we live in funny times when a Miss America contestant gets tougher questions than the president. Indeed.
“Very exciting, very exciting for the American people, because now we can get things done without explaining process,” Pelosi told CNN’s Candy Crowley.

“The White House apologized saying it was a “photo op” gone wrong. My question: A photo op for what? Are we selling Air Force One to pay for the bailout packages?”
Arlen Specter becomes a Democrat. Na, na, na, na, hey, hey, hey, goodbye.
UPDATE: Suckas! He’s your problem now. Writes Allah:
TNR asks a good question: How exactly do the Democrats benefit from having Specter switch? With Toomey sure to beat him in a GOP primary, they could have handpicked any centrist Pennsylvania Democrat they like for the general and stood an odds-on shot of winning the seat. Instead, they let Specter switch for the most cynical, opportunistic reasons, a fact that’ll weigh on some Democrats next year.
If you haven’t already, check out the bottom video here to really understand the fear and panic induced by the “photo-op” low-flying plane over NYC yesterday. Of course it’s not Obama’s fault, nothing ever is, but I’m not entirely clear how he’s going to blame Bush for this one.
As I like to say about Obama’s plans to raise taxes only on the rich, you’ll be surprised what percentage of the population find themselves in “the richest five percent” by the time we’re through. There are simply not enough of “the rich” to pay for what western governments are spending.
Please nobody state the obvious, we don’t want to upset Obama.

The next chapter of the wedding weekend (actually Day 1 of 3) is now up on the wedding blog.

“One thing about torture that keeps me up at night is reprisals. What if AQ captures a U.S. soldier and puts him in a box with a caterpillar?”
A Saudi man has divorced his wife by text message, a newspaper said earlier this month.
The man was in Iraq when he sent the message informing her she was no longer his spouse. He followed up with a telephone call to two of his relatives, the daily Arab News reported.
I’m doing a day-by-day recap (with photos) of our wedding weekend over on the wedding blog.

You’re the richest person in the world. Money is no object. Would you ever, ever, want a mink collar around your bathrobe? Forget the 6 grand original price (and the current bargain price of like $1800), when would anyone ever get out of a bath or shower and reach for mink? Gross!
“I’m happy just to dance with you” by the Beatles
I woke up thinking of “I’m stepping out” by John Lennon, a song I had remembered as quite happy. What a miserable song! He’s been looking at the kids for days and days! Poor him! Must have been so tough in his Dakota apartment with the wrap-around terrace. Noose around his head! Really.
And this got me on a Beatles tangent on youtube which eventually led me to this cute tune which fits my newlywed mood so much better.
