Rand Paul's filibuster also contains a refreshingly modern performance of the Vagina Monologues.

The unsung hero of this Rand Paul filibuster is whoever is writing the closed captioning.

Look, if ACORN wanted to avoid getting its corpse repeatedly kicked by the U.S. Congress, they should have killed some civilians in Iraq and renamed themselves Academi. Instead they're stuck in the darkest timeline:
March 22, 2010: ACORN, an umbrella organization of community organizers that provided lots of figurines for Glenn Beck's fear-diorama, announces it will disband. Later that year it does just that, closing its state affiliate offices and filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
December 5, 2012: Despite not existing, ACORN is blamed by 49% of Republicans for stealing the 2012 election.
Today: A short-term budget bill sponsored by House Republicans includes language to defund ACORN, which continues to not exist.
April 2013, probably: House Republicans take a strong stand against an appropriations bill that would allow the National Institutes of Health to study unicorn farts and manticore tears.

Probably my least favorite President is that pyramid with the scary eye on top.

I was on my way to work this morning when I realized it's Presidents Day and I don't have a job.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) spoke at the American Enterprise Institute about a new path for the GOP, which turned out to be a lot like the GOP's old path, except "softer." Now, instead of screaming "HELL NO" at the Obama agenda, Eric Cantor will quietly whisper, "nooooo."
Nevertheless, it was an impressive address considering that at least half of Cantor's brainpower is consumed by maintaining that buttery accent.
