Joe Biden, You Handsome Devil, You!

Funny typo in this Politico article.

A LexisNexis search shows that such outlets as CNN, “Imus in the Morning,” National Review, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, POLITICO, The Independent and the Sacramento Bee have all referred to Biden as “handsome.” (Emphasis added.)

Unless all those sources really have referred to Joe Biden as handsome, which would just be disturbing on many levels.

“Voters Are Right”

This is brilliant.

“In many troubled relationships, both sides deserve some of the blame. But the United States is a nation founded on the belief that governments gain their legitimacy only from the consent of the governed. In the relationship between the people and the Political Class, that means the voters are right, and the politicians need to change.” ~Scott Rasmussen

It’s also nice to see that Mitt Romney has hit 50% for the first time and widened his lead over Barack Obama to 7%…his biggest lead yet.

Breaking News: Teen-Age Boys Are Jerks

Tune in at 11:00 for shocking photographs of blue sky!

Also, the sky is blue and Abraham Lincoln is dead. Shocking! Tune in at 11:00 for details.

It’s been my experience that high school boys are, overwhelmingly, jerks. Apparently, this is news to the Obama campaign, but of course, these are the people for whom everything is unexpected, so maybe it’s not surprising.

So we learn that Mitt Romney bullied a student, who he may or may not have known was gay, when he was in high school. Not something anyone should be proud of, but maybe it was just “Reflective of the struggles and confusion of a teenage boy. Teenage boys are frequently confused.”

Romney says, and I’m inclined to believe him, that he didn’t know the student in question was gay. When I was in high school in the 70s, homosexuality wasn’t really on my radar and that was nearly 20 years and a whole lot of sexual revolution later.

Update 1: Another perspective on the “gay-bashing” incident.

Update 2: Jeff at The Lid gets his hands on this story. LOLZ ensue.
