All the money in the world apparently can't buy decent math or history skills…
I thought maybe there was something hinky going on with this, like maybe it was old footage about something else or was taken drastically out of context. But, I found some other footage with the same outfit and same background and it's dated from last month…

Ain't no party like a Twitter Tea Party cause a Twitter Tea Party is limited to 140 characters. Your midterm fix from the twitterverse:
Sharron Angle and nerdy white boys: both really good at imagining high schools girls are 'a little more Asian' than they actually are.
Praise be to the Aqua Buddha that Paul and Conway are going through with their final debate. Now we just need to tell everyone in Kentucky what a television is and everything will be perfect!

Seriously, it's like she's not even trying…
"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." "I don't owe anyone anything." "Jobs, jobs and jobs." Really? Those are the quotes she's gonna go with? I never even heard of those? No "I'll be back," or "Hasta la vista, baby"? Not even an "I'll kill you last"? Ugh!
I'll tell you, I have no idea what kind of governor she'd be, but she is never gonna make it as a guest on Leno.

Used to be a third party candidate couldn't get arrested in this country. Looks like things are finally turning around for the Green Party…
A Green Party candidate in the California's governor's race was arrested Tuesday after trying to get into a debate she was not allowed to participate in.
Laura Wells, 62, from Oakland tried to enter a debate between leading candidates in the race: Republican gubernatorial nominee Meg Whitman and Democratic opponent Jerry Brown, police said… Wells was not allowed to be part of the debate because of her lack of support in the polls, CNN-affiliate KTVU reported…
San Rafael police said Wells was arrested for trespassing after trying to use a bogus ticket to get into the event and then arguing with school security officers.
This seems kind of unfair. Why should Wells not be allowed to sit quietly, anonymously and not-making-a-scenedly in the audience like any other Californian while her two political rivals* debated up on stage as she was certainly planning to do?
Okay, maybe her ticket was in fact "bogus." Or, then again, maybe it wasn't. Either way, if running a distant 3rd (or possibly 6th) doesn't get a spot up on stage, shouldn't at least be good for a few comped tickets? Or at least a little media attention. Would that have been too much to ask?
* Jerry Brown and Meg Whitman are her rivals. She doesn't need to be their rival. Nor do they need to know her name.

On last night's Daily Show and Colbert Report, Jon and Stephen covered all of the latest missteps by 2010 candidates, not the least of which is Ohio Congressional candidate Rich Iott's decision to pose for a photo wearing a Nazi uniform. As you can imagine, Iott's fellow Republicans are furious. After all, how can they trust that he's loyal to the party when he's going around dressed like a Democrat?
Colbert's take is after the jump.
