The Fox News crowd is predictably appalled that anyone would pass some blame for the Gulf oil spill onto George W. Bush. But as Jon Stewart pointed out on last night's Daily Show, they were more than glad to fault Bill Clinton anytime something went awry during the Bush administration. Of course, blaming Bush and blaming Clinton are both incredibly unfair. Because all this stuff, from 9/11 to Katrina to both recessions, is obviously William Henry Harrison's fault.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.

Hey, so the good news is that Rush Limbaugh has — for the fourth time — found everlasting happiness in the sanctity of marriage with a human female. And the even better news is that he has made so much money in his job selling hatred to angry people, that he was able to purchase outspoken marriage equality advocate Elton John's soul for an evening. Well, if that isn't the sweetest…
[A]ccording to a News Corporation (which owns Fox News) wire report, the Rocket Man, 63, serenaded the 400 guests into the wee hours Saturday night to celebrate the marriage of Limbaugh, 59, to Kathryn Rogers, 33, in the Ponce de Leon ballroom of Florida's fabled Breakers hotel in Palm Beach. Sir Elton's fee: $1 million, the report notes.
Well, at least Elton John got a million dollars out it. That'll come in handy if anything ever happens to the 200 thousand other millions of dollars he already has. You know, every little bit counts.
And also, I suppose he had the pleasure of perform before an exceedingly distinguished collection of wedding guests…
Amid dozens of giant bouquets of white roses (and very tight security), reports the Palm Beach Post, guests at the wedding included former Bush adviser Karl Rove; actor-politician Fred Thompson; former Kansas City Royals slugger George Brett; Fox News commentator Sean Hannity; former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani; New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft; former Clinton adviser James Carville and his wife, GOP analyst Mary Matalin; and golfer Tom Watson. A wedding guest also tells PEOPLE that among the others was Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Yikes! My god! That is literally like one of those Abbott & Costello movies in which they pack every movie monsters they can think of. We have no definitive details about what happened at this party, but I'm one hundred percent certain that at some point Sean Hannity and James Carville must have had some kind of stiff-armed wrestling match on top of a mountain during a thunderstorm. And the Creature from the Black Lagoon probably used that opportunity to hit on Mary Matalin. Or maybe it was Rudy Giuliani. Whatever. Same thing pretty much.
Sunday morning, a source tells PEOPLE, the newlyweds hopped Limbaugh's private Gulfstream jet for a honeymoon in Mexico, Africa and a couple other spots.
Aaaaahhhhh!!! Now I have Rush Limbaugh's honeymoon in my brain! Get it out! Get it out! Get it out!
The wire service also quotes the new bride as saying of the couple's 26-year age gap: "I'm sometimes not able to relate to the average person my age."
Well, then good for her. Sounds like she found just the right match. Because "average" and "person" are definitely not words generally associated with Limbaugh.

The 2012 GOP primaries keep looking hilariouser and hilariouser…
Ex-CNNer Lou Dobbs tells WTOP this morning that he feels "liberated and emancipated" since leaving the network — and he's not ruling out the possibility of running for president in 2012…
"For the first time I'm actually listening to [people who want him to run for office]. … I don't think I have the nature for it. … But we've got to do something for this country."
Oh man, can you even imagine? Dobbs vs. Palin vs. Giuliani vs. Ailes vs. Huckabee vs. Romney? What other ridiculous people can we throw in there? Is Chewbacca planning a run? I think he'd do well in the current Republican climate.

Nine eleven nine eleven, nine eleven nine eleven nine eleven nine eleven. Nine eleven nine eleven nine eleven! Nine eleven nine eleven nine?
Former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani has decided not to run for governor of New York next year after months of mulling a candidacy, according to people who have been told of the decision.
Nine eleven nine eleven?
It was not clear what prompted the decision, but the prospect of potentially facing Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo, who is quietly planning his own run for governor on the Democratic ticket, may not have appealed to Mr. Giuliani, who suffered a bruising defeat in the 2008 Republican presidential primary. While many political analysts believe Mr. Giuliani would have comfortably beaten Gov. David A. Paterson, he would likely have faced an uphill battle against Mr. Cuomo, one of the most popular politicians in the state.
Nine eleven nine eleven nine eleven nine eleven. Nine eleven nine eleven nine: eleven nine eleven; nine eleven nine eleven; nine eleven nine; eleven nine.
Eleven nine eleven.
Update: Nine eleven nine eleven nine eleven. Nine eleven?!?!
Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani has decided not to run for governor next year – but will run for U.S. Senate instead, sources told the Daily News.
If elected, the source said, he could use that as a stepping stone to run for President in 2012 — rather than run for re-election to the Senate.
Nine eleven nine eleven nine eleven nine eleven.
