Ideology really can make smart people stupid:

"There are many theories about the import of Scott Brown’s upset victory in the race for Edward Kennedy’s former Senate seat. To our minds, it is not remotely a verdict on Mr. Obama’s presidency, nor does it amount to a national referendum on health care reform" 

That's from the New York Times. In all fairness, though, the same could probably be said about many-a-Republican.

Pat Robertson? Oh no.

Once again, with his Haiti comments, Pat Robertson says something which only succeeds in making him look ridiculous. If this doesn't make people run away from his political endorsements come '010, then nothing will. What I am wondering, though, is who is this hack co-anchor sitting with him? Doesn't she know to pull the camera off him or something when he says something like that?
