NOVEMBER: The Stuporcommittee deadlocked and the “trigger” was pulled, which produced a collective yawn among the financial markets. Fortunately for our elected representatives, the automatic spending cuts will not take effect until 2013, giving them plenty of time to dig our financial hole several trillion dollars deeper.
DECEMBER: (In the final crisis meeting of the year, the Eurozidiots declared victory by proposing a new EU treaty which was vetoed by British PM David Cameron in his first act of conservatism. Undaunted, the Eurozone leaders tried to pronounce the details of their deal, but their statements were unclear because each of them had been drinking directly from personalized jugs of Gallo Hearty Burgundy for the previous twenty-four hours.)

In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
