Laura Bush on life after the White House:
"When you're married to the President of the United States, you don't worry too much about him leaving his wet towels on the floor," Mrs. Bush said. "But in Dallas, things are different. Memo to the ex president, turmoil in East Timor is no longer an excuse not to pick up your socks."It's hard not to like Laura Bush, isn't it? Then there's Joy Behar, whose recent vulgar attack on Sharron Angle seems to have backfired: “We had a major fundraising surge today. I can only imagine it was directly in response to Joy Behar’s comments,” said an Angle campaign spokesman.
One of life's major mysteries for me is why women watch The View. If you're a fan and willing to admit it, please enlighten me.
Vote once but check it twice next week:
Sam Laughinghouse of New Bern said he pushed the button to vote Republican in all races, but the voting machine screen displayed a ballot with all Democrats checked. He cleared the screen and tried again with the same result, he said. Then he asked for and received help from election staff.See Nice Deb for a collection of similarly disturbing stories, including a report that teachers unions are offering gift cards for Reid votes in Nevada. And see RedState for how they do it in Illinois.*
“They pushed it twice and the same thing happened,” Laughinghouse said. “That was four times in a row. The fifth time they pushed it and the Republicans came up and I voted.”
Speaking of teachers unions, do you need another reason to homeschool your children? If so, do what Chris Christie tells you: Watch the Teachers Gone Wild video and his response to it. Are these the people you want your kids spending the best part of their day with?
$7,500 Per Person for **Dinner With Obama (**Dinner With Obama Not Included):
There’s no greater compliment you can pay to chefs than by talking about dog s*#t just before everybody eats and then skipping out on the meal they cancelled their prior engagements in order to serve you.He got what he came for and it wasn't a painstakingly prepared dinner showcasing locally grown food, something the White House loves to pay lip service to.
Jim Geraghty looks at the brutal House poll numbers:
Let’s read that line again: “The Hill’s data confirm other public polling and expert predictions, some of which put the historic wave even higher than the 52 seats Democrats lost in 1994 and the 71 they lost in 1938.”And also via JG, the weather forecast for election day calls for rain in the eastern half of the country, giving the apathetic (read "democrat") another excuse not to bother showing up at the polls.
Herseth Sandlin and Pomeroy are each at 45 percent, and Hill is at 46 percent. They may lead in these polls, but I wouldn’t have their Washington office staffs buy too many green bananas.
