Humpbacks sizes of buses frolic close by. The two-year-old spots a mother and baby orca jumping together, splashing silver from their black and white uniforms. Beautiful. Then, an adult orca comes straight for the boat.
In the never ending edge-of-your-seat ennui that is Sarah Palin's future political career, there's some news from the Last Frontier.
The death of Jack Germond this week continues to thin the ranks of a generation of great political reporters who have left us recently, including Haynes Johnson, Helen Thomas, Herb Kaplow and John Palmer, to name a few.
When its constituents start referring to Sen. John McCain as a liberal you know the GOP bus has officially careened off the cliff. Let's just visit McCain's record for a second, because perspective and context here is critical.

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!
