And now, over to you

But a couple things before I go:

No mo Joe?: Word on the street is Joe Lieberman might not throw his hat into the ring next time around. Bummed?

Done deal: The FCC approved the Comcast-NBC merger. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont tweets: "The mega-merger of Comcast-NBC will lead to less local news coverage, fewer points of view, & reduced competition for viewers & ads."

Deal with it: Bill Frist says the health care bill is the law of the land and Republicans should build on it rather than try to symbolically tear it down.

Bunghole: LBJ says this word while ordering pants in one of the best animations I've seen since the Dock Ellis video.
