Well, well, the personal overrides the political. If only more Republicans would get pregnant accidentally, we'd be all set.

Oh, that ten things we didn't know was fantastic! Also, I enjoy the fact they are encouraging people to send in pictures of ten items. Because we all need more to do with our time and digital cameras!

Also, the stuff on Theresa Heinz Kerry was awesome. And not just because it made me think of one of the best Straight Dope columns ever, which says in part, "After a few more demonstrations of this style of architecture, the citizenry became alarmed lest Heinz encumber every landmark in the Republic with giant pickles." Which is one of the best sentences ever. If you ask me.
