It's amazing what an Election Day thumping can do. Apparently, it can even bring back the dead. Here, for example, is the 2006 version of John McCain sprung back to life…
I agree with the calls for comprehensive immigration reform

A lot of attention this election cycle has been focused on the question of what Mitt Romney would do as president. "There's a pretty compelling story that if you had a President Romney, you'd be in a different situation," said Richard Williamson, a Romney adviser, as he told the story of a world in which the trees are the right height and our embassies aren't stormed.
But questions about what Mitt Romney would do elide the question, "Is Mitt Romney already the president?" Consider Vice President Joe Biden's remarks on Meet the Press…
"Based on what President Romney has said as it relates to his view, for example, him saying our arch-enemy, I'm paraphrasing, is Russia , though he called it the Soviets, is Russia ."
That's just crazy uncle Joe being himself. But here's Sean Hannity from last night…

Hands down, the breakout star of the 2012 election has been the blogosphere. Between Buzzfeed's found-footage savant, Andrew Kaczynski and all the talented folks at Gawker and Politico, bloggers have left no stone unturned and no offhand remark unmocked.
Today, Gawker introduced the inaugural column of "The Fox Mole," a disgruntled Fox News employee who will be leaking fun behind-the-scenes videos, like this one of Mitt Romney affecting a stereotypically "gay" voice…
From the bottom of our cold, dead comedy-blogger hearts, we thank you, Fox Mole. Hopefully this clip is just the first of many videos that will offer an entertaining window into the inner workings of Mitt Romney's circuit boards.
If you watch the whole clip, you'll see Romney discuss his wife's passion for the totally down-to-earth sport of horseback riding and then dismiss the pink tie he's offered as too "Donald Trump." When told that if he doesn't switch ties, he'll be perceived as wearing the same thing two nights in a row, Romney says, it's fine with him, he'll "look like a schlep."
Unfortunately, Romney is only slightly better at Yiddish than Michele Bachmann. A schlep is a tedious or difficult journey. As in, the GOP primary has been such a schlep. What he probably meant to say was schlub, a stupid, talentless or unattractive person. As in, that Newt Gingrich is such a schlub. Why is he still schlepping along in this primary?

If it wasn't obvious before Rick Santorum dropped out today, then it should be painfully clear now that Mitt Romney is the official GOP nominee. Unfortunately, Newt Gingrich still has a problem processing "reality" and plans to stay in the race until the bitter end.
He's even willing to get that message tattooed on his forehead…
Newt Gingrich pushed back against the idea he was, effectively, conceding the race to Mitt Romney in an interview with Fox News on Monday night.
"I am in here — I'm thinking of getting it tattooed up here [points to forehead] 'all the way to Tampa,'" he said. Tampa is where the GOP convention will take place in August.
That's actually a good strategy. With a face tattoo, Newt should fit right in with the people of Tampa.
Now that Rick Santorum's out of the race, Newt will only feel more emboldened. Especially since he'll absorb some of Santorum's leftover conservative votes. And you know how much Newt likes absorbing leftovers.

Do you remember Jon McNaughton, the artist who gave us the timeless masterpiece "One Nation Under God," alternately known (by me) as "Lord Jesus Christ Presenting Us with Our Holy Constitution"? Well, he's got a newer, even better piece of art that's–
Hey, let's let the artist present this one…
Wow! Looks amazing, right? Finally, we can dump that piece of junk "Mona Lisa" in the trash and hang up something with a little class in its place!
How much would you think a brilliant piece of art like that goes for? A lot of money, right!
It goes for even more…
