I should check in at your blog more frequently, Barb. It could help to unfuse my confused mind concerning current events in a way that the cable channel talking heads and print media column-filling self-appointed experts ply their trade and make their livings.

The singing video is almost a masterpiece. So good to hear that I'm not the only one disappointed with the "us versus them" atmosphere of DC politics. Old-fashioned me still naively clings to the "let's work together" way of getting things done. Partisanship be damned!

Yes, OHB's image is faltering. Trying to accomplish too much too soon, attempting to bring about an exorbitantly major health care reform while the country is in this deep recession —. Come on, Barack, you must be kidding. Let's get serious, oh naive one. Slipping into the GWB mindset is not what we voted for either.

Letterman, Leno, and now Conan have all demeaned their styles with their alleged humor, much of what is nothing more than insults, cheap shots and in incredibly poor taste. (Do you guys know what that is?) I can appreciate good humor as well as anyone but what evokes groans from the audience, no laughs, or even a smile is not humor. Kudos to Palin for calling Letterman on the carpet even though he continues to harass her.

Thanks for the video, but what's with the person who went to all the trouble to create those ? designs?

There are many comical creatures in the news lately.
Senator Franken seems to be one of the few serious ones.
