Slate Tackles the Big Issues of the Day

Wow, that Timothy Noah is a real hero. Years after the few people who would have even cared about the Great "Baby Einstein" Scandal have stopped caring, there he has been keeping continuous tabs on the nefarious Julie Aigner-Clark, whose offenses against mankind are beyond number.

Thank you, Timothy, for not letting this one go. My children thank you, too.

P.S. Nice "zinger" there at the end. No "refund" on the Bush presidency, indeed. You are such a card!

Well, he should be.

This is just embarrassing all around. I will say this, if the theory is that having Barack Obama as president is in itself worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize (a ridiculous proposition, in my opinion, but just for the sake of argument...) then shouldn't the award go to the people who put him in office? They're the ones who actually did something.

P.S. One theory: maybe the European intelligentsia thinks that this was a clever way of tying his hands. "I can't take any action against Iran now, I won the Nobel Peace Prize!" Methinks that Barack Obama wouldn't actually think that. He won the prize, now on to other things. You feed the ego...

P.P.S. Over at "Southern Beale's" (originality-free since 2003), the author seems to think that Republicans are just mad that more Democrats (four) have won the award than Republicans (one). Yes, that's the beef: after all, everyone knows how much Republicans crave the approval of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee. They're just jealous!

She'll Never Work In This Town Again

Now that she actually has to deal with it, a Democratic speechwriter urges caution on "health care reform."

Art, of a Sort

The only thing that could have made this better is if, upon scrolling over Samuel Adams, that caption read simply: "Brewer, Patriot."

Does this guy not realize that a few people on here weren't exactly the most devout folks in the world?
