Missing Colbert

Deaniacs! Here's some Howard in the Sunday New York Times. I'd be interested to know what went on between him n' Rahm. I hope he works hard to get us some health care. Here he is being funny making videos for Stephen Colbert. You are viral on MY blog, Dr. Dean!

And here is a funny Word from Stephen Colbert about the Obama administration and gay rights. Well played, Colbert.

Yes, I have missed you, Stephen. I can't wait to hear what you have to say about The Sotomayor hearings. (Good luck, Sonia! And if you ever need a Wise Old Corgador as clerk, I'm your dude! I will need to nap between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.)

Health Care, PLZ.

MoveOn is hosting events for a Public Health Care Option. You can check here to see if Linkthere is one in YOUR area. (We're knockin' on Senator Carper's door tomorrow!)

I wonder if the Public Plan will cover disemboweled stuffies? Hmmm.

The Endumbening

My ma ape's discipline just lost a little street cred (and by street cred I mean nerd cred):

from TPM:

Alberto Gonzales lines up teaching gig for the fall.

Late Update: TPM Reader RS:

Please tell me there's at least one Texas Tech political science student with the guts to answer "I do not recall" to every test question. Maybe even "I do not recall remembering."

As the report I link above notes, Gonzo will be "teaching a 'special topics' course on contemporary issues in the executive branch."

Happy Burpday Malia (and America)

My new mom Malia is turning 11 today! What do you think she will get me?

Is Anyone in Charge? and An Announcement

If you have a Republican governor in your state I would strongly recommend figuring out if anyone is actually still doing their job.

In the meantime, I would like to announce that I am running to be governor of Alaska. It appears to require few skills and I have very few. I am too old to hike the Appalachian trail, though I will fess up to having fondness for Canadian Bacon. I have no ethics violations (I have been cleared of all charges after biting my gramps). I have been blogging for a long time so I have no doubt I could weather the glaring media scrutiny and even David Letterman making jokes about me. And I don't wear clothes so my wardrobe will be very inexpensive. Link
As a side note, I am not interested in moving to Alaska so I hope they have Skype on their computer.

AMENDMENT: Khyra is interested in being my Lieutenant Governor which I wholeheartedly endorse, especially since I will probably get bored after a few months and pursue my national political career which I am hoping will lead to a seat on the Supreme Court, preferably on the lap of Ruth Bader Ginsberg who is SASSY.
