Apparently before last night’s Democratic Presidential Debate, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton spent the day chugging triple espressos:

With several Red Bulls as a chaser:

And an hourly regimen of crystal meth:

However the crash came before the debate’s end, causing her to lose focus. Unwittingly, she previewed her most common pose if elected president:

Sure, while the rest of the world does the popular thing and celebrates Halloween tonight, my family will quietly observe Reformation Day in our usual way: We’re going around all the houses in our neighbourhood and tacking up copies of Luther’s 95 Theses on the doors of all the houses that look Papist.
And then we’ll hand out Luther bobble-heads
to all the little Protestant kids that come around tonight, and finish
off the evening with a few rousing stanzas of “A Mighty Fortress Is Our
God” and go off to bed secure in the knowledge of our salvation by

When three of Finland’s most popular musicians, including one described as that country’s Bruce Springsteen, arrived for a recent tour in Minnesota, they expected a quick trip through airport customs.
Instead, immigration agents at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport subjected them to more than two hours of interrogation that the musicians considered so harsh and demeaning that they filed a formal complaint with the U.S. Embassy in Helsinki.
First off, Jukka Karjalainen is not “Bruce Springsteen of Finland.” Rather, Bruce Springsteen is the “Jukka Karjalainen of America.” And be forewarned: Revenge is a dish best served cold and cold is one thing that we Finns know all about. Minnesota, prepare to feel our barely concealed eyerolls and unspoken resentment!

“Voters are showing the highest level of confidence in some time that
we’re winning the war against terrorists. I take this as part of a
growing realization that we’re making progress and achieving some
success in Iraq. That’s not a story a lot of people in mainstream media
want to report, but it appears to be true, and the word may be getting
And that good news about Iraq is definitely starting to get out, but once again, the role of General Petreaus and the Surge must not be mentioned:
“An important turning point was the founding late last year of the
Anbar Awakening Council by the charismatic Sheik Abdul Sattar Abu
Risha. He united dozens of Sunni tribes against .
Fed up with the violence and eager for revenge against al-Qaida
members who killed 10 family members, including his father, Abu Risha
persuaded citizens to join the police force. They did — in droves —
despite past attacks against recruits.”
And it’s just a coincidence that the Iraqis in Ramadi did *exactly* what our strategy wanted them to do.
Like it was a coincidence that the Moon just happened to be there when Apollo 11 got to it…
