Twitter news; all the news that fits in your stomach after engorging yourself last week.
Elbowing Obama in the face; dirty basketball or clean terrorism?
Finally, an excuse to have 'pope condoms' in your Google search history.

Liberalism really is an insidious virus spreading throughout our society, isn't it. Used to be, you could avoid infection by simply staying away from the hippy colonies, feminist marches and universities. Not any more.
As you plainly see from this Fox News interview with EA Sports president Peter Moore — whose company just introduced the newest version of NBA Jam, featuring a bunch of playable politicians, such as Barack Obama and Sarah Palin — the threat runs much deeper these days…
Random Blonde Fox Lady: Is this a bipartisan game, though, Peter, because I read that the president has some special skills; do any of the Republicans have any special skills, Peter?
Peter Moore: We try and be nonpartisan in what we do, but at the same time the president, who as you know is a pretty good hoops player himself, we try to represent his skills. So the president does have some special skills, which you’ll have to buy the game to find out what they are.
Random Blonde Fox Lady: Well handled, Peter.
Yes, well handled this time, Peter. But Fox News has it's eye on you. And it will be watching… watching… watching…

Oh, this old story again: The six foot eleven inch ex-NBA player with the Yale degree and the type 1 diabetes runs as the Republican candidate for governor in a state composed primarily of lumberjacks and lesbian hippies.
Ladies and gentlemen, the next governor of the great state of Oregon, Chris Dudley!
Dudley, 45, is an unusual political candidate. He played basketball at Yale, a university far better known for producing politicians than N.B.A. players, and did so while living with diabetes. And in N.B.A. history, no player who scored as little as Dudley — he averaged 3.9 points per game and was famous for his inept free-throw shooting — has managed to linger longer than his 886 games, which included four seasons with the Nets and three with the Knicks.
Is this gubernatorial playa not quirky enough for you? Well, feature this: Chris Dudley is a Republican who supports civil unions and legal abortion. In this way he is maybe a non-crazy, non-Teabaggy, non-embarrassing Republican candidate! Who knew they even MADE those anymore?!
Um, also? The Future First Lady of The Land of Beavers shares her husband's first and last name. Chris Dudley is married to Chris Dudley. So there is that.
A million votes for Chris Dudley, the other Chris Dudley, and their adorable giant children, now.

Do yourself a favor and don't turn this off this video of Obama and former Indiana Pacers Clark Kellogg after the first few minutes. Believe me, you're going to want to. You'll start getting that same feeling that you got when you watched Obama "throw" out the first pitch yesterday. Resist the urge…
Can't help but feel that this is some kind of a metaphor for something or other.
