Must Be a Slow Day

You know it's been kind of a slow news day when this headline appears on the CNN homepage:

Pelosi Calls Bush a "Total Failure"

Really? The far left leader of the House Democrats is criticizing the far right Republican president with historically low approval ratings? How shocking! I guess the real shock here is that she waited this long.

In other news, I highly recommend this piece from the latest issue of the New Yorker (yeah, the one with the cover). It breaks down the supposed Obama flip flops one by one and sorts them according to how much of a flip each flop is. It also ends with (what I think) is the brilliant last line: "Flip-flops are preferable to cement shoes, especially in summertime." That's why he writes for the New Yorker and I don't.
