Things that are fun and funny: Tirades!

No, seriously, they are! Check out this clip that didn't air on SNL but could/should have. It focuses on the reportedly firey temper of Rahm Emanuel, Barack Obama's choice for chief of staff.

Eagle Killers: Friends of Bush

So... today President pardoned a bunch of crooks and weirdos who have connections to the current administration, at least enough of a way to make it seem worth the President's while to drop their prison terms, etc. This is nothing out of the ordinary, in fact it's a pretty standard piece of the whole Presidency thing. Anyway, among the pardoned is some bozo who was in prison for killing bald eagles by poisoning them... so all I can do is ask this:
