One reason the CAAN'T campaign backfired is because nobody knows who to root for when one bully beats up another bully.
The latest episode in this most uneven of Mad Men seasons, "A Tale of Two Cities," was actually a good one. Coming just a week after the least viewed episode since 2009, and just as I was thinking it might be time for a pithy 400 or 500 words on the show jumping the shark, it was a welcome arrival.
Lincoln Chaffee is our Most Impressive Democrat Of The Week award-winner. See, Republicans? Not only will you be welcomed, you'll actually get awards for making the trek across the aisle! Step right up, there's room for everyone!
If the new crop of conservatives wants the kind of national stage that Bachmann is ceding, they have to jump in the deep end of the nut bowl with a snorkel and a mouthful of garbled sound bytes.

Yes, we have now crossed the line, and there will be no turning back. Facts no longer matter, at least to a significant percentage of Americans. To them, all that matters is the "truth," even if they have to lie to defend it.

At first glance, a George W. Bush Presidential Library might seem like an oxymoron -- think, the Sarah H. Palin Institute for International Studies.
