Obama v Letterman
Obama also had his most
irreverent answer yet on the question of whether some of the vitriolic reaction
to his health care plan is driven at least partly by racism.
"First of all, I think it's important to realize that I was actually black before the election," Obama said to huge laughs from Letterman and the audience.
Responded Letterman: "How long have you been a black man?"
"Democratic Senator Max Baucus introduced his health care plan this week, to make it mandatory to get health insurance and ... you would fine people if you didn't get it. And if you didn't pay the fine, you'd go to jail. But the good news is, once you're in jail, free health care!" --Jay Leno

Carrie Prejean. You know Carrie, the almost-Miss California. She spoke today at the Values Voters Summit. They have great speakers, like crazy Michele Bachmann is there this year, John Boehner, the unemployed Baldwin brother, token black guy and for that segment of the Republican party that finds Sarah Palin too intellectual, they got Carrie Prejean to speak this year. She said, God chose her to give that answer at the pageant against gay marriage. You know what, Carrie, if God is really that interested in what goes on at beauty pageants, he's gay." --Bill Maher
Teabaggers Say "Take Our Country Back", What They Mean Is "Take Our Country Back From The Black"
"If Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid thought that after 9/12 we'd just go away and give up, well then we have some bad news for them," organizers wrote in a blog item — singling out the president, Senate majority leader and House speaker — that was posted on the Tea Party Express Web site. "We're back, better than ever, and determined to TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK!"

Not-So-Frugal Traveler (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane
Making staffers use each Post-It side,
Mark Sanford would wastefulness chide.
Then he’d charter a plane,
Throwing cash down the drain.
Sanford sure took his state for a ride.
"Right now in Washington, D.C., they're holding something called the Values Voters Summit. This is a gathering of conservative activists at the Omni Hotel. During the day, they get together and talk about values and politics, and then at night, they sneak hookers up to their hotel rooms. " --Jimmy Kimmel
