The Republican National Committee
The Republican Party is working towards political obscurity at the national level. The RNC votes as a bloc to reject Mr. Obama’s stimulus plan and then crows about their obstruction tactics. They demand more tax cuts because the tax cuts of the past eight years have worked so well for the economy.

Mission For Emissions
Automobile manufacturers say that it would be too confusing to let states set their own emission standards. I say just make cars to meet the strictest rules and call it a day. I didn’t even need billions of dollars in bailout funds to come up with that idea.

Blagojevich Takes Case To Media
Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich makes his case to Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America regarding the unfairness of the impeachment process he faces.

And he’ll wonder why he lost his job.

Drunk Negro Cookies
Ted Kefalinos’ Drunken Negro Face cookies are a tribute to President Barack Obama that ranks right up there with Obama Waffles and Barack the Magic Negro. The owner of this haughty upscale bakery in New York said the cookies were in honor of our new President and made innuendos suggesting that he was hoping Mr. Obama would be assassinated. And now that people discovered the true nature of this clever prankster who wears his racism on his sleeve why do they continue to patronize his bakery?

Splashdown On The Hudson
Captain Chesley Sullenberger of US Airways flight 1549, an Airbus A320 with more than 150 passengers, splashed his plane down in the Hudson river after losing total power after colliding with birds just seconds after leaving the ground from LaGuardia Airport. Now that sounds like the kind of mavericky behavior people should be looking for in leadership.

The Largest National Monument Ever
Parts of three remote and uninhabited Pacific island chains totaling some 195,280 square miles have been set aside by President Bush as national monuments to protect them from oil and gas extraction and commercial fishing in what will be the largest marine conservation effort in history. At least on the surface that’s how it looks. Back in November Mr. Bush undermined EPA protection for national monuments making it easier for corporations to do whatever they want right next to national monuments.

Jobs Works To Stop Health Rumors
People have been asking about Apple’s iconic executive, Steve Jobs frail health. Mr. Jobs released a statement saying he has a hormone imbalance that has been robbing him of proteins. Does it really matter? The man has access to the very best healthcare in the world and money is no object. A better question is how do I get Apple’s iHealth coverage?

Happy Birthday Mars Rovers
Four years and nine months past their ninety day warranty the Mars rovers Spirit and Opportunity are still roaming the red planet without a single repair, maintenance visit, refueling, or anything else. These two machines were put on the back of rockets and shot tens of millions of miles across space to land by parachute on a desolate planet and in a harsh environment. But American ingenuity has difficulty competing with foreign automakers.
