Jeff Barth’s campaign ad — in truth a YouTube video — is not as weird as I thought it would be based on the headline of the Political Wire blog post, which is “Most Bizarre Campaign Ad of the Year?” They do have a question mark. The ad does, however, tout the straightness of his children’s teeth. Which is indeed odd. Probably a first for any ad that isn’t for your local dentist.
It also offers a chance to show the silliness of politics as practiced by people on both sides of the aisle. Join us, won’t you? Read more »
Big Daddy Dick Cheney got all up in then-President George W. Bush’s grill when he was trying to get the Prez to pardon Scooter Libby. I have to admit, I wonder why Dubya didn’t issue the pardon. Not because Cheney was all up in his grill (isn’t that a phrase that white people need to stop using? Yes, it is) but because… well, why wouldn’t he just do it? He did a lot of other shit.

Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was unwilling to say that the maniacs who believe that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States and is therefore not a citizen, or “birthers” as they are apparently called (I hate giving them a name), are nothing more than conspiracy theorists. She says that the “birthers”, or “lunatics” as I like to call them, are merely “uncomfortable” with President Barack Obama, who she says is “an American president who seems to be afraid to defend America.” She gives an example about Daniel Ortega and how the President should have reacted more strongly to his obnoxious speech, but mostly just spouts GOP Conservative Hive Mind catchphrases. James Carville, after babbling in that weird accent, eventually hits the nail on the head at the end of this video of his appearance with Lizzie C. on the Larry King Show. The video is worth watching, although it will probably make you mad. (Huffington Post)

Last Cheney item of the day: the Dick himself may have to testify in the CIA investigation. Ooo. That could be interesting. (Politico)
