Palin's continued viability as a commentator on anything is a lasting confirmation of Americans' terminal ignorance.

Philly deserves a more admirable leader than Roethlisberger; great QB, but pretty much a dick as a person. & I ADMIRE Tomlin hugely. Still.

Excuse me, Universe? Is there some way you could ensure that BOTH Roethlisberger AND Flacco get the shit kicked out of them? kthxbai

Boehner went to an RNC cocktail party/fundraiser, instead of the Arizona memorial service. Guess he felt he had better things to do. Scum.

At sunrise in the east on Wednesday, Sarah Palin demonstrated that she has little interest -- or capacity -- in moving beyond her brand of grievance-based politics. And at sundown in the west, Barack Obama reminded even his critics of his ability to rally disparate Americans around a message of reconciliation.Sarah Palin will never again hold elected office. Guaranteed.

The more tortured their arguments disavowing responsibility, the more isolated they become. Soon, no one but the fringe will them: a losing strategy.
