But alas no, Gentle Reader(s). I was plowing through Google Reader this morning and came upon these two gems, both of which are just too good not to share.
From the "Please quit talking" category, The Hill yesterday reported that Joe Lieberman is "now praising Obama" in the wake of his national security team selections. This is, I am sure, completely unrelated to Lieberman having been allowed to keep his Homeland Security chairmanship at Obama's urging. From his Republican convention speech to this:
I applaud President-elect Obama for assembling a talented and bipartisan national security team. ... At a moment in history when our nation faces both great dangers and great opportunities in our foreign relations, the President-elect has begun to build an administration that can lead America forward on the world stage with purpose and principle.And, from the "And all this time I thought Ron Paul was the craziest candidate for office" category, this guy wants to be appointed to fill Hillary Clinton's soon-to-be-vacant Senate seat -- for two years, until Chelsea is old enough to run. His blog is not to be believed (and is a must-skim), and apparently he's spamming countless political writers and bloggers with his request to be a self-appointed Charlie McCarthy of sorts:
I surely cant make things any worse, now can i? and I DO WANT THAT OFFICE IN THE BASEMENT. THERES BENEFITS TO LIVING IN A BUNKER I THESE UNCERTAIN TIMES...Um, OK.
the US Constitution says a Senator must be 30 yrs old to run for Senate. sorry, chelsea- you miss this opportunity by 2 years. but wait-ALL IS NOT LOST! ...
watch me drink this kool-aid- my lips never move!
if i was a surrogate- served for 2 years, then promptly resignED to ms. clinton....meanwhile- follow her every order to the letter..Hillary too!
