You knew this was coming, Arianna. You've let this nonsense languish on the front page of the Huffington Post for two days. You've been making the rounds on television, monopolizing air time that could be devoted to useful discussion with nonsense. You're way out on a limb, you know it, and now it's time for this fed up HuffPo reader to serve you up a nice big bowl of shut the fuck up.
"I have an idea for how he [Joe Biden] can capitalize on all the attention, and do what generations to come will always be grateful for: resign."
You have an idea? Is that what you think it is? And how on earth do you know that generations to come will be "grateful"? For a look into Arianna's chrystal ball, follow me over the fold...
Sam Stein over at the Huffington Post details Senator Dick Durbin's appearance today on CNN's "State of the Union".
One of Barack Obama's chief allies in the United States Senate hinted on Sunday that a public insurance option could go by the wayside as Congress hammers out its health care legislation.
Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union," Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), one of the chamber's foremost progressives, said that while he supported a government-run option for insurance, he was "open" to alternatives.
"Just understand that, after we pass this bill -- and I hope we do -- in the Senate, it will go to conference committee," said Durbin. "We'll have a chance to work out all of our differences."
I decided to create a highlight reel that includes Orly's most articulate points, so as to prevent the left wing socialist media from distorting her important message.
Today, on Chris Matthews, at the conclusion of a very heated exchange, dick-bag Ari Fleischer made the following astonishing claim about the rationale for the war in IRAQ:
After September 11th having been hit once how could we take a chance that Saddam might strike again?
Bobbie Jindals recently took his wisdoms to the conservative CPAc conference, where he premiered the following cutting edge, hip hop video that totally re-invents the Republicans party into a non-racist, non-lying, non-law-breaking, non-recession/defecit-causing, non-war-fucking-up party of trustworthy badasses in one fell swoop. Regulators! Mount teh fuck up!
It was a huge hit! Now available on teh internets for all to enjoy and absorb. Or is it resorb? Hail satan! I mean, hail Palin!
OK, this pissed me off just enough to bring me out of retirement.
Mike Simpson (R-Idaho), yesterday, talking about the stimulus:
For the first time in my life, I'm embarassed to be a member of this body.
The news is not good right now. But most of these only have around 20% of precincts reporting. So it's early. Updates to come.

Not a whole lot is going on today. And with our man leaving the campaign trail to attend to family business, I wonder how interesting the next couple of news cycles are going to be. I suppose that's a good thing for our side, since we're sitting on a comfy lead at the moment.
Personally, I could use a breather from the 24 hour cable news. Although what I'd prefer is for this thing to be over so I can relax and think about something else for a change.
At any rate, I know that I sure could use a good laugh. A good laugh at McCain's expense? Even better.
Here's a little something to munch on while we eagerly await the final throwdown!
Wow. Matthews just had one of those moments of clarity. He just grilled McCain spokesman Mike Duhaime HARD for five straight minutes on Bill Ayers. And he never got a straight answer on why America should care and what exactly this tells us about Barack Obama.
In an effort to get more eyeballs on these things, I'm going with the most straightforward, no-frills title I could think up between digitizing tapes. Hopefully I'm not sacrificing style points in vain ;)
It was a good night for our man. I'll be posting debate highlights to Youtube all night.
