  1. To paraphrase the Grateful Dead, what a long strange trip the past two weeks have been. Since Last week at this time I was driving home from CPAC this edition covers two weeks.
  2. Since last time, we saw Obama admit another Obamacare lie and once again Sheila Jackson Lee proved Ron White was right when he said, you can’t fix stupid as the Representative from Texas failed American History. We saw Mark Zuckerberg whine to President Obama and Rep. Loretta Sanchez encourage truthers.

    Speaking about not fixing stupid, Code Pink’s Medea Benjamin was arrested in Egypt on her way to Gaza and a UN and EU Funded Palestinian News Agency announced the ‘Jews Plan to Subjugate the World’. Senator Boxer used a long discredited claim as global warming scare tactic and Chelsea Handler told Piers Morgan that he is a Terrible Interviewer. MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski called Sarah Palin a ‘Multimillion-Dollar Moron’ and  the Columbia Journalism Review declared Fox Is More Balanced than MSNBC
