I HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS!
Mr. Obama has also maintained the longstanding presidential tradition of weekly lunches with his vice president. For Mr. Obama, lunch generally means a cheeseburger, chicken or fish in his small dining room off the Oval Office. There is also a new addition to White House cuisine: the refrigerators are stocked with the president’s favorite organic brew: Honest Tea, in Mr. Obama’s preferred flavors of Black Forest Berry and Green Dragon.
☞ Now, if we could only get the Republicans on board with this.
It’s way too early to give up on bipartisanship, so there’s a fine line to be walked when it comes to criticizing Republicans for rejecting it. But in his latest nationally syndicated column, Bill Press expresses the frustration the Administration must feel. And don’t miss Frank Rich.
“The economy’s getting worse. Home Depot announced that they’re laying off 7,000 employees… which is interesting because I’ve been to Home Depot, and I didn’t even know they had employees.” – Jimmy Kimmel
US AIR SURVIVORS: SO GRATEFUL TO BE ALIVE, THEY MAY SUE
What is going ON here, people? I don’t even know where to start. (“You’re going to crash me into the water, and you’re going to tell me all I get is [$5,000 and] and an upgrade?” asked Antonio Sales, 20, who was traveling with the University of South Carolina’s track team. “That’s more of an ‘OK, you’re not dead, I’ll give you something to hold on to.’ It’s not enough at all.” Teammate Gabrielle Glenn, 20, was more blunt: “That’s it.

Quote of the Day
Guys, just remember: if you get real lucky, if you make a lot of money, if you go out and buy a lot of stuff, it's gonna break. You got your biggest, fanciest mansion in the world. It has air conditioning. It has a pool. Just think of all the pumps that are going to go out. Or go to a yacht basin any place in the world.

Things just don't mean happiness.~Ross Perot to Harvard B-School students, quoted in Forbes
