This week, the New York Post became utterly unhinged over Occupy Wall Street, Grover Norquist ricocheted between being "the most powerful man in America" (ask Alan Simpson) and "some random person in America" (ask John Boehner), and Kim Kardashian failed to live happily ever after -- or even happily after 72 days. On the GOP campaign trail, Rick Perry tried to explain going all gooey over a bottle of maple syrup, Herman Cain gave a master's course in how not to handle a sex scandal, and Mitt Romney replaced Lou Gehrig as the luckiest man on the face of the earth. Meanwhile, the Party of No lived down to its name as Senate Republicans obstructed another piece of the president's jobs bill, blocking $60 billion targeted to patching up America's crumbling infrastructure -- earning the undying support of gaping potholes, collapsing bridges, and derailed trains all across the country. Andy Rooney would have had a field day mocking that one.
