Hey, everybody

Font Size:

Okay, break’s over. Wait, not “break.” Um… time off? Time off’s over.

As usual, I’m just playing this by ear. Here are a few things you might like, if you haven’t seen them already:

My dad wrote an op-ed for us yesterday. It’s currently the third most popular page on the site.

Your fame has now eclipsed mine, father. You win. This time.

Matt Labash is a good writer. You should buy his new book Fly Fishing with Darth Vader and read it. Okay, is that what you wanted, Labash? Are you satisfied? Now just let the girl go. She hasn’t done anything. This is between you and me.

There’s a new weapon in the battle against global warming-related scientistism: snark.

As a native Hoosier, I jumped off the Evan Bayh train when he voted for Obamacare. Here’s what he said about it less than two months ago, according to the NYT:

Lawmakers who attended a private meeting between Mr. Obama and Senate Democrats at the White House on Tuesday pointed to remarks there by Senator Evan Bayh, Democrat of Indiana, as providing some new inspiration.

Mr. Bayh said that the health care measure was the kind of public policy he had come to Washington to work on, according to officials who attended the session, and that he did not want to see the satisfied looks on the faces of Republican leaders if they succeeded in blocking the measure.

Now all of a sudden it’s “I do not love Congress.” Aww, poor baby didn’t win and now he’s quitting the tee-ball team. Seriously, though, what happened to precipitate this announcement? I’m thinking it was some sort of blackmail attempt. Perhaps someone threatened to reveal the precise shade of his hair dye.

Okay, that’s all I’ve got for now. If you’ve sent me well wishes and I haven’t replied, it’s only because you’ve said or done something to offend me personally. And I will never tell you what it is. Just kidding, I’ll tell you.
