At the recent Value Voters Summit, Senator Tom Coburn's Chief of Staff Mike Schwartz declared all pornography is gay pornography. Which, I have to admit, is pretty true. Personally, there's nothing I enjoy more than firing up the latest episode of MILF Hunter and blowing a bunch of dudes. Here's Jon Stewart with more on the Summit.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.

I know, I know, you're saving all your Tom DeLay viewing energy for his upcoming appearance on Dancing With the Stars. Don't blame you. So if you missed yesterday's Hardball, Talking Points Memo recaps the fleet-footed one's take on those rowdy health care town halls…
"This has been going on forever. When I did my town hall meetings — I'll never forget one back in the 80s, on health care, by the way. They brought in quadriplegics on gurneys and dumped them on the floor in front of my podium. This is not new. What's new is the people who came into disrupt my town meetings, we just let them go on," DeLay said.
Weird! Tom DeLay can't forget that incident, but no one else can remember it. I'm sure it happened if he said it did, though. And I'm sure Tom DeLay subsequently cured those quadriplegics by laying his hands on them, which is probably why people were dumping them on the floor in front of his podium in the first place.
I mean, what other reasonable explanation is there?

Just heard that Tom DeLay will be one of the stars dancing on the upcoming season of ABC's Dancing with the Stars.
Don't believe me?
I know I'm supposed to be incredulous about this, but I guess I'm just all out of incredulous juice for the time being.
And I don't really think this is a matter of slumming or pandering to the worst elements of society for attention.
That show's been in steady decline for years.

Matt Taibbi on the GOP's new role as "the unofficial rodeo clowns of the Financial Crisis Era"…
If there were any doubts about the once-mighty party's hilarious new role in American society, they vanished in recent weeks, as the Republican leadership's attempt to stop the passage of Barack Obama's budget turned into one of the most half-assed public-relations campaigns in congressional history.
Watching this amazingly amateurish performance by a party that not long ago was led by highly skilled and ruthless political assassins like Tom DeLay and Karl Rove was just the latest bummer in the spiraling American-decline story. Not only don't we make good cars or airplanes anymore — now our Republicans have apparently lost their touch for evil politics.
Watching the GOP in decline is, for me, kinda like watching one of those monster movies — like King Kong or Frankenstein – in which you actually start feeling sad for the thing that you're supposed to be afraid of.
Except, without the "feeling sad" part.
