Zombie Republicans hungry for BRAAAAAINS are lurching about attempting to consume one another. The Republicans have decided to eat each other alive. See Huckabee's attack on his fellow Repugs. Hagel hates you all. Newt Gingrich has returned to the scene of the crime. Go ahead, feast on each others' rotting flesh/rotten ideas! But if you're attempting to live on brains in the GOP, you might die of starvation rather quickly.

Thursday night Rachel Maddow was on! It's like two of my favoritest people EVER in ONE PLACE! (And if Malia and Sasha can't adopt me Rachel is my backup plan):
And here is Stephen with Andrew Young, a civil rights pioneer. Watch as Stephen makes him crack up and then watch as he makes Stephen crack up!

"On the other hand, our preference would be to get a shelter dog. But obviously a lot of shelter dogs are mutts, like me."
I think that the obvious solution is that a President who is one of a kind should have a dog who is one of a kind:
You know how excited I was by Blue Florida? And Blue North Carolina--that state that repeatedly elected Jesse Helms? And Blue Virginia. Ok, well this trumps 'em all. After recounting the votes, adding in provisional and absentee ballots, Obama took one of Nebraska's electoral college votes--the first time in 40 years a Dem has won in NE! (For those of you fortunate enough to not live with a political science dork, Nebraska is one of two states to divide up its electoral college vote by Congressional District.) So my GranNE no longer lives in a Red State! She was part of parting the Red Sea!

As part of his duties, the black man will have to spend four to eight years cleaning up the messes other people left behind. The job comes with such intense scrutiny and so certain a guarantee of failure that only one other person even bothered applying for it. Said scholar and activist Mark L. Denton, "It just goes to show you that, in this country, a black man still can't catch a break."

This just in! Barney the White House Scottie has bitten a Reuters reporter (this was Breaking News on MSNBC--no joke!) and the reporter had to go to the hospital?
Is Barney PO'd that his legacy will always be tied to the Bush Epic Fail? Or his he mad about this story about how the Obama girls' hypothetical dog is more interesting to the public than he is? Or maybe he just doesn't want to go back to Texas with those yahoos? Free Barney!
ETA: Video of the incident!
The Times has a story today about the most important issue of staffing in the transitional period for the Obamas. Picking their daughters' dog! DailyKos has been doing polls, the AKC is trying to convince them to go purebred, the Humane Society is pushing adoption. Right now CBS is doing a story on puppies to help the Obamas make a choice.
Guys, guys. Done and done. I'm RIGHT HERE!
(P.S. Thanks to Alice who sent me this story and who regularly comments IRL on my irresistible cuteness and yesterday referred to me as the essence of nobility. I will be using her as a reference for my White House gig.)

While I have been resting I have been reading the intertubes and I would like to give big kissy smoochies (see above) to Massachusetts for banning greyhound racing. Ha-rooooo! And California passed Prop 2 which restricts some of the worst factory farming techniques.
But I must also blow raspberries (also see above) at California for passing Prop 8 (aka Prop 8) which amends CA's constitution to ban gay marriage. Way to HARSH OUR VIBE, DUDES!
To recap, here are my favorite things from yesterday:
- my new moms Malia and Sasha got their dad (my gramps!) to promise them a puppy when they move to the White House
- BLUE FLORIDA! (Shout out to the Barkalot Boyz!)
- Free Greyhounds
- Staying up late with Stephen Colbert
- No more Joe the Plumber
- Blue Colorado!

P.S. Can we replace Chris Matthews with this kid?

I'd like to congratulate Senator McCain on this endorsement because he really earned it. That endorsement didn't come easy. Senator McCain had to vote 90 percent of the time with George Bush and Dick Cheney to get it. He served as Washington's biggest cheerleader for going to war in Iraq, and supports economic policies that are no different from the last eight years. So Senator McCain worked hard to get Dick Cheney's support.
But here's my question for you, Colorado: do you think Dick Cheney is delighted to support John McCain because he thinks John McCain's going to bring change? Do you think John McCain and Dick Cheney have been talking about how to shake things up, and get rid of the lobbyists and the old boys club in Washington?
