* Congress is considering doing away with the $1 paper bill and replacing it with a coin. Which is kind of appropriate since the dollar is only worth about a quarter anyway.
* Show me where in the Constitution its says that the Founding Fathers intended for Christian Slater to get to vote to begin with.
* John Boehner appointed Candice Miller to a House chair position. That should effectively solve the Republican's problems with women, don't you think?
* Download our free iPhone and iPad app Indecision Election Companion and join us for our last Peanut Gallery event of the 2012 election cycle. We'll be watching and responding to Timothy Geithner's appearance on CBS's Face the Nation this Sunday on CBS, 10:30 am ET. So, please join us and contribute your two cents. Though, that might be asking a bit much in this economy, am I right?

If this new poll is to be believed, then more Americans favor legalizing marijuana than ever before…
Support for marijuana legalization has edged up recently and is now tied with the opposition, according to a CBS poll released Friday — the first time since that survey started keeping track of the issue.
Forty-seven percent support legalization, and forty-seven percent oppose it, according to a CBS News poll. Support for legalizing pot crept up slightly from 45 percent in September, the poll found.
I don't know about you, but I don't buy it. I don't care what this poll says. I find it incredibly difficult to imagine that 146,448,200 red-blooded patriotic Americans are in favor of taking these marijuana drugs and injecting its pot dust into their veins so that they can "get off" and "feel groovy."
Hey, I'm young! I'm hep! I realize that kids like to get free love while going on their marijuana trips. But that's a phase. All of these 146 million people who support legalization are eventually going to grow out of it. Unless they become jazz saxophonists. But, let's be realistic here, how many job openings for jazz saxophonists have you seen recently? Everybody else is going to go out and get one of the many high-paying factory jobs available to them, and they'll go back to drinking beer or taking prescription drugs like our Founding Father intended.
Mark my words. This is a phase. It'll pass. Just like bell bottoms did.

Rush Limbaugh on Sanda Fluke being named as a finalist for Time Magazine's Person of the Year…
"It's not something I'm proud of here, folks, I must be blatantly honest. Nobody would know who she is if it weren't for me. If anybody is going to be named Person of the Year on that basis, it ought to be me!"
I think this is one point on which he and a lot of liberals would agree. You've got to admit, very few people have done more to further the progressive cause than Rush Limbaugh.
