Breaking Up Is Hard To Do
Oh kids, I hate to be the one to break this to you, but…..

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says he was surprised by John McCain’s pick of Sarah Palin because he believes the only difference between himself and the Alaska governor is “she looks better in stilettos than I do.”
Reflecting on the Palin pick in an interview with the New Yorker posted Monday, Huckabee told the magazine that “I was scratching my head, saying, ‘Hey, wait a minute. She’s wonderful, but the only difference was she looks better in stilettos than I do, and she has better hair.’”
Well, kids, we now know the direction the Rethuglican party is going to take. Chuckleberry feels like he is going to have to compete with Princess Sarah next time around, and I suspect the others will follow suit (that is, if the Rethuglican party gives them shopping sprees, too!)….

Apparently, Chuckleberry didn’t get the memo about shopping at Neiman Marcus and rushed over to his local Walmart. Rudy, not to be outdone, goes to Dame Edna garage sales.

Drive Me Crazy
WASHINGTON — Democratic leaders in Congress called on Detroit’s automakers Friday to submit “credible” financial plans to lawmakers by Dec. 2 for spending up to $25 billion in government money, including vows for “significant sacrifices” by top executives.
Oh, c’mon, Dems, your lips tell them no no, but there’s yes yes in your eyes….

We don’t know where the buck stops, but that’s okay, because there are no bucks left!
From Paul Krugman at The New York Times:
Everyone’s talking about a new New Deal, for obvious reasons. In 2008, as in 1932, a long era of Republican political dominance came to an end in the face of an economic and financial crisis that, in voters’ minds, both discredited the G.O.P.’s free-market ideology and undermined its claims of competence. And for those on the progressive side of the political spectrum, these are hopeful times.
There is, however, another and more disturbing parallel between 2008 and 1932 — namely, the emergence of a power vacuum at the height of the crisis. The interregnum of 1932-1933, the long stretch between the election and the actual transfer of power, was disastrous for the U.S. economy, at least in part because the outgoing administration had no credibility, the incoming administration had no authority and the ideological chasm between the two sides was too great to allow concerted action. And the same thing is happening now.
