Lame duck is a dish best served cold

In case you missed Bush's presser today:

As with most of Bush's recent press conferences, his confidence and speaking patterns varied wildly thoughout it, from fairly composed to awkward and lost. Read below the fold...

Victory Shopping

Thread: 

Like Lambert, I'm a bit exhausted when it comes to politics, and so I took the morning and early afternoon to explore Georgetown. I can't believe I'd never been there before, it's so frickin' beautiful. Like most people there, I did my patriotic post-election duty and did some shopping. And I have one question for you: Read below the fold...

The Irridescent Miracle, or, Keep Those Pitchforks Sharp

EXTREME UPDATE: Who knew we were read in such rarified quarters? Pack yer bags, Professor...RUMSFELD RESIGNS IN DISGRACE (no link yet, we're ahead of WaPo and NYT as usual. AP/NBC reporting though).
