According to the Mirror, "anti-terror officials said the past week had seen an 'unusually high' number of people on their no-fly list trying to board US-bound planes." This must be Bush's fault.
Chemical Ali was hanged in Iraq for genocide. Sam Valley put it best: "His bad luck that Eric Holder wasn't in charge when he was captured."
Maybe we should set aside a Twitter for Congress. All bills must be 140 characters or less.
I find it amazing that H1N1 is a threat to the US, but not to Haiti.
A couple of local stories: SOA Watch trespassers get 6 month sentences, the max. If they'd get 13-month sentences, they would only have to sentence them every other year.
The other local story: There was a fire on Sesame Street. No, not that one. There's one in Columbus. Nobody was hurt, thankfully. And, yes, it's tasteless to make jokes about a fire. But, I've never been accused of having good taste.
Did you hear? There are reports of a John Edwards sex tape. Really. How long before the John Edwards Sex Tape virus starts making the rounds? And what kind of perv would open it?
MSNBC reports home sales plunge in December. Ah, the Obama recovery.
Obama tells ABC's Diane Sawyer that he would "rather be a really good one-term president." Personaly, I'd rather him have been an awesome no-term president. And, before all is said and done, so will you.
Fox News' Major Garrett reports that Obama saluted Magic Johnson and his "infectious enthusiasm" during East Room event. You know, if Saturday Night Live hired Obama's writers, they'd be funny. But not on purpose.
Obama has disproved The Peter Principle. He has already risen several levels beyond his level of incompetence.

The last of the Cartwrights dies. Pernell Roberts was from Waycross, Georgia. That's not all that far from where I grew up. Roberts was 81.
Some group called the "Women's Media Center" (that's Latin for "Crazy-ass Bitches") demands CBS cancel ad featuring Tim Tebow and his mom ... because it could convey a pro-life message. Yes, there's nothing quite as divisive as love. Or the birth of a child.
