Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, with his perpetually ahead-of-the-mainstream views, finds himself treated like old Ben Kenobi in the beginning of A New Hope, a crazy old wizard with no real shot. Now, though, it seems like maybe the tide is turning.

Fox News, the official network of the GOP, has announced the names of nine of the candidates in the debate. The tenth will either be Ohio Gov. John Kasich or former Texas Gov. Rick Perry. What is it going to be, Fox, beets or liverwurst?
So Vladimir Putin checks in at the Ukraine. A guard asks his name and he gives it. Then Putin is asked "occupation?" No Putin says, "just a visit." The Capitol Steps have tons of jokes like this - some vocally and most sung beautifully in well known tunes.
