Possible Glamorous Daughter of GOP Candidate Discovered

Because presidential campaigns are such sausage-fests and political wives are usually pill zombies with frozen smiles, the Washington media must always find some haughty, semi-glamorous and/or drunken daughter of a candidate to find reasons to write about. Whether it’s the Bush Twins or Meghan McCain or that one grown-up daughter of John Kerry’s who once appeared in public wearing a dress that looked sheer in a single flash photograph, you can always count on the campaign press corps to come up with a girl to fit this modern requirement. Who will it be this year? Read more on Possible Glamorous Daughter of GOP Candidate Discovered…

U.S. Was Prepared To Fight Pakistan In Getting Bin Laden

Here’s some good news for ally relations: If Pakistan had noticed the U.S. troops entering Pakistan airspace to take out bin Laden in time and opened fire on them, as they likely would have, the U.S. was prepared to shoot back and send in reinforcements to fight the Pakistanis until bin Laden’s body was back in Afghanistan. “Some people may have assumed we could talk our way out of a jam, but given our difficult relationship with Pakistan right now, the president did not want to leave anything to chance,” somebody told the New York Times. But Pakistan is now letting the U.S. talk to the terrorism guy’s widows, hooray! BFFs! Blood brothers! Haha, remember when we almost tried to kill each other and go to war?!

Huntsman Still Running For President, Making Romney Look Like Teabagger

Former Utah governor and current Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman is going to run for the Republican nomination for president, just as he always has been, basically. He will wait until this spring, because like every potential GOP presidential candidate, he hates giving the political Internet pageviewz. Huntsman’s campaign staff will basically be John McCain people from 2008, and Huntsman will be a similarly moderate alternative to the candidates who eat fried squirrel. How moderate? He currently works for Barack Obama. So it is likely Teabaggers will assassinate him before he can even get to the Iowa caucuses for helping prop up an illegal Kenyan president. Oh, and he’s Mormon. So he’s just around to make Mitt Romney look good in comparison, we guess? Read more on Huntsman Still Running For President, Making Romney Look Like Teabagger…

Nevada Prefers The Mere Idea Of Not-Harry Reid To Harry Reid

The Internet, as personified by a Utah State Rep., briefly suggested that Jon Huntsman’s ambassadorship means that Huntsman will be in a prime position from which to convert all of China to Mormonism, and probably Republicanism!
