- Politico.com has the list of The Obamessiah's pet peeves, which as expected are the lamest pet peeves ever, things that you'd make up on your resume, like, "I'm just too awesome of a father," or "I would never cheat on the White Sox," or "I just work out so much it's tough to be a slobbering blob."
In the follow-up I expect that we'll learn that he doesn't like it when people cut in line at the White House cafeteria or that he gets so embarrassed when the Obamedia spends too much time filling his drinks by the pool and insisting on adding the little umbrellas.

"The babies born in hospital corridors: Bed shortage forces 4,000 mothers to give birth in lifts, offices and hospital toilets"

- Speaking of Kennedy's death, I couldn't believe it when I was watching an NBC news update on the Weather Channel at 5 a.m. yesterday and the anchor starts off by shaking her head, saying, "What a terrible day for us all." Um, what? For his family, definitely. For Democrats, sure. But the rest of us? Eh, just another celebrity death with far too much news coverage. I doubt she expressed such grief on behalf of all of us when, say, Gerald Ford died, or heck, even when Ronald Reagan passed.
Teddy Kennedy was what was wrong with the Senate and Democrats for nearly 50 years, a mean S.O.B. who would defame Republicans with nary a wink and a nod to politics, and who escaped justice for letting his aide, Mary Jo Kapechne, drown in his car while he panicked about his precious career. Even Time magazine had to admit that Kennedy was a “Palm Beach boozer, lout, and tabloid grotesque.”
- Democrat Party headquarters in Colorado vandalized. Why those good for nothing anti-health care Republicans and their mobs ... oh, wait, it was a Democrat trying to make Republicans look guilty. Never mind.
