* Herman Cain at the Americans for Prosperity conference today: "I am the Koch brothers' brother from another mother!" I feel bad for the janitor tasked with cleaning the vomit off the floor at these things.
* Cain's harassment settlement was signed in September, 1999. Or 9/99 if you will. Ye, he is truly the Chosen One.
* John Boehner says the new debt plan will include new tax revenues. Apparently, he's figured out a way to tax toddlers.
* Senate Democrats figure out brand new way to not pass jobs bill.
* Fox News and the New York Post offer proof that the Occupy Wall Street movement is populated solely with mentally-disturbed erratic homeless people. Just as we always suspected!

Wait, what's all this? Conservative congressperson John King (R-NY) wants to investigate Fox News and Wall Street Journal-owner Rupert Murdoch over something 9/11-related.
I don't get it. Murdoch isn't a Muslim, is he?
New York Republican Pete King is calling on the FBI to investigate whether Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation hacked into the voicemail accounts of Sept. 11 victims, calling the allegations of the scandal "disgraceful."
"As I see it, I would expect more things to be coming out over the next several weeks," King told Politico. "And as we approach 9/11, the tenth anniversary, it's even going to get worse."…
A number of Democratic senators are also calling for inquiries into the scandal. Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) is calling on Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate. Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W. Va.), who chairs the Senate Commerce Committee, asked for an investigation on Tuesday into whether American phones were hacked by News Corp. reporters. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) says she supports Rockefeller. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J) wants authorities to look into allegations that News of the World reporters bribed London police for information about the British royal family.
Jeeze! Can you even imagine what would happen if Rupert Murdoch was actually held accountable for something his place in this News of the World scandal (which, oddly enough, isn't getting much play with the New York Post or Fox News) just like any other person would be?
No, me neither.
Can't wait to find out why all of these investigations are unpatriotic wastes of taxpayer money being foisted onto an unwilling public by socialist upstarts. I can't wait! I keep refreshing the Wall Street Journal opinion page, but it's not there yet.

Are we in the media really in that much need of something whole-assed to get behind?
