The Republicans won a majority in the House just two days ago, and as Stephen Colbert pointed out on last night's Colbert Report, they've already accomplished so much, from making a profit on TARP to saving the auto industry. In fact, some say the party started turning things around months ago. It's all part of the GOP's new philosophy, Trickle Back in Time Economics.

Last night Austan Goolsbee returned to The Daily Show, but what made it to air was just the tip of the Goolsberg. If you think you can handle it, there's nearly ten additional uncut Goolsbeelicious minutes after the jump. Unless you're an experienced Goolsbeehead though, probably don't take it all at once though. Wouldn't want you to Goolsberdose.

Teabaggers turning on not only one of their own for a minor and politically-understandable infraction, but turning on the chairperson and creator of the actual congressional Tea Party Caucus?
I find this to be completely out of character for them…
Tea party groups in Missouri are furious that national tea party icon, Rep. Michele Bachmann, endorsed the strong frontrunner for the Senate nomination Rep. Roy Blunt (R-MO). Bachmann will join Blunt for a fundraiser and to make campaign calls in his St. Louis headquarters Saturday…
"We believe she has been grossly misled if she understands him to be a Missouri Tea Party candidate," read a statement issued by 38 groups from the Show Me state, claiming to represent more than 8,660 activists.
How dare they accuse Bachmann of "understanding" Blunt to be something other than he is?! After everything she's contributed to their movement, those Missouri Tea Partiers have no right accusing her of "understanding" something like that. In fact, they have no right of accusing her of "understanding" anything.
As far as they — and all Americans for that matter — are concerned, Michele Bachmann understands absolutely nothing. Please, people, try to remember that.

Are you tired of being forced into having the courage of your convictions? Doesn't it really get under your skin when people expect you to take responsibility for things that are your responsibility? And isn't it just the worst when decisions that you have made in the past are remembered by people today?
Well, John McCain — head sensei for the Way of the Maverick — is went on Meet the Press this past weekend to tell you that there's another way!
Blame Henry Paulson!
David Gregory: One question about the bailout, the TARP. You voted for it. But you said that you were misled by Former Treasury Secretary Paulson. How so?
John McCain: We were all misled. We were all misled.
Yes! We were misled by Henry Paulson. All of us! And not just on the bailout, but on a multitude of things! Henry Paulson has been misleading Americans into a responsibility-free existence for years!
Harness the ancient wisdom of fearful Bedouin tribespeople to improve your life today! It's just that easy!
Try it on your boss…
Your Boss: You're more than an hour late to work this morning.
You: I was misled by Henry Paulson into believing that the physics governing time had been suspended.
Try it on your wife…
Your Wife: You're having sex with my sister!
You: I was misled by Henry Paulson into believing that you were wearing her skin as a ceremonial raiment.
You can even try it on your personal deity…
Your God: You have spent your entire life in the pursuit of debauchery and sinful self-gratification.
You: I was misled by Henry Paulson into believing that You valued orgiastic Bacchanalia and ecstatic pleasure as states of pure holiness.
Thanks, John McCain! Now we can all live the life of a Maverick!
Warning: Offer may not be good in Arizona.
