Only 35 Days Left!

LinkIn these waning days of the Reign of Error I admit I have found myself a bit nostalgic, concerned that I'm going to miss the old guy. Sure, he wasn't perfect and his handling of the media could use a little work but still, he gave us some good years.

And by him I mean Barney, the White House Dog. Here's his latest Holiday Video. (Watch Dubya in the credits and tell me that man has not fallen off the wagon!)

And as a special message to Barney and Miss Beasley: It's ok guys, we know it is not your fault. FREE BARNEY!

New Dog at Secret Undisclosed Location

Joe Biden got a new dog. He got himsel an Oscar. But not from our DE SPCA where my ma ape could have helped him pick out a winner! Bummer.

No word on if the pup cost more or less than a Senate seat in Illinois.

I would have traded Oscar for his Senate seat.

Transition Team: Poet Laureate

Obama Pictures and McCain Pictures

I think that Obama is on the cusp of naming our next poet laureate. Slate has an article with some of her finest pomes. Here are the lyrical stylings of Poet Palin, the Gifted Governor from Alaska.

"Small Mayors"

You know,
Small mayors,
Mayors of small towns—
Quote, unquote—
They're on the front lines.
