- After last night's fellatio-esque interview of John McCain, reporters ask Jon Stewart if he's a real journalist and if he should've tried harder to ask a real question. No, and yes. [Comedy Central, Time, Rolling Stone]
- No one really cares, though, because Hillary might not actually stay in the race until August. [NY Times]
- And there is one economist who agrees with her gas tax plan, but only because this example of blatant electoral pandering is the method of blatant electoral pandering likely to do the least harm of all the harmful ways to blatantly pander to the electorate. [NY Times]
- Oh, and some New York Congressman got his mistress pregnant three years ago and has a secret love child and is a drunk driver. Even married Republicans lose when it comes to abstinence-only education. [NY Times]
- That pedophile Interpol was searching for? He was a store Santa from Jersey and found fucking little kids "euphoric." Gross. [Associated Press]
- And some people still buy that shit about Obama being a Muslim. [Wired]
- And some dude used to drug and rape women at his office parties, but the law firm he worked at didn't sack him for it or warn anyone even after 2 women got drugged and reported it. Dudes, don't lawyers know not to fuck with lawyers? [Boston Globe]
- Mark Penn is so dumb that he didn't know about proportional representation in the primaries when Hillary hired him, but she'll still have to pay him the $10 million or so she owes him. Asshole. [HuffPo]

- Speaking of disasters, Burma is still fucked. [NY Times]
- And the Prime Minister of Israel has likely been taking bribes from foreigners. [Washington Times]
- God I need a fucking drink.
BTW, aren't these journalists the same ones that whined about "usurpation of territory", "overstepping boundaries", and "lack of serious credentials" following Stewart's evisceration of Chris Matthews and other pundits with Faux Noise compatible perspectives?
As for the lawyers-on-lawyers thing, perhaps it's just a bad week - I mean decade - I mean, century - for misogyny in BigLaw.
