1) Jim Treacher is funnier than me:
That’s my favorite part, the nervous, hesitant laughter. You can almost hear the audience thinking, “Is this okay? Will people think I’m a racist?”
2) Democrats are kicking up a dust cloud when they say, "Changing circumstances required Obama to change his mind."
When Obama made his pledge he knew that if he won the primary that he would face the winner of the Republican party. What changed there? Did he think that McCain is just a big meanie and that he would have kept his pledge if Fred Thompson was the Republican candidate? Mike Huckabee?
What has changed since then? Money. Lots and lots of money.
Like the old joke goes, "We've established what you are, my dear. We are now haggling price."
