  • Sarah Palin didn't like David Letterman's crack Monday night about her "slutty flight attendant look" (neither did we); she calls it "pretty pathetic." If her make-up is the only thing he can find to mock, we agree. [Politico]
  • A new poll shows that more than half of Republicans can't identify who leads their party, and those that can are split between Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, Dick Cheney, George W. Bush and John McCain — only one of whom actually holds a position within the party. [USA Today]
  • The problem that rank-and-file Republicans have in identifying a leader might stem from the fact that the Republicans who have actually been elected think that government debt will bring down the Obama Administration. Just like it did Reagan's Administration, guys, amirite? [Politico, NY Times]
  • Senator Pat Leahy has chosen July 13th to start confirmation hearings for Judge Sonia Sotomayor's nomination to the Supreme Court, and Republicans are whining about having homework during the week long break they get for July 4th. [NY Times]
  • Obama is dropping his plan to cap salaries at bailed-out firms and let them deal with Congressional caps on bonuses, which Congress passed thinking there would also be salary caps. [Wall Street Journal]
  • We've decided to pay the impoverished island nation of Palau — which we normally ignore and let the Aussies take care of — $20 million in aid to take the 17 Chinese Uighurs we falsely imprisoned at the behest of the Chinese government and can't figure out what to do with. [NY Times]
  • Also, we swear we're not going to invade North Korea the way we did Iraq and Afghanistan. [CNN]
  • The Kenyan government is angry that the Obama Administration isn't blowing sunshine up its ass despite its human rights record, unwillingness to reform and political instability. [LA Times]
  • Rod Blagojevich, in yet another effort to launch his official career as A Celebrity, will appear in a comedy routine about Rod Blagojevich with Second City in Chicago. [Associated Press]
  • Former DNC Chairman and Clintonite Terry McAuliffe lost the 3-way Democratic primary in the Virginia Governor's race to some guy named Creigh that you've never heard of. [MSNBC]
