The Daily Grind

"US and European officials said Tuesday they have detected a plot to carry out a major, coordinated series of commando-style terror attacks in Britain, France, Germany and possibly the United States."

"The more they know," Ms. Blackburn observes, "the less they like Washington."

Alan Grayson gets smacked around by...Contessa Brewer?

The Democrats' women problem.

"Predominantly white crowd."

Valerie Jarrett is the real center of Obama's inner circle. Yep, the woman whose grand idea it was for him to go beg for the Olympics. 2012, here we come!

"Far more significant, however, was the president's misstatement that Mr. Bush and the Republicans left the country with $8 trillion of debt over the next 10 years. The CBO's projected 10-year deficit when Mr. Obama took office was actually $4.09 trillion. Now, after 20 months of his presidency, the expected deficit has almost doubled, to $7.68 trillion. A strong case can be made that the people most responsible for the gigantic deficits we face today are neither George W. Bush nor Barack Obama. The real culprits are Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid."

Nope, Sarah Palin wasn't booed on "Dancing With the Stars."
