Probably my least favorite President is that pyramid with the scary eye on top.

I was on my way to work this morning when I realized it's Presidents Day and I don't have a job.

What I like about Barbara Walters is she's not afraid to ask the tough questions, no matter how inane or tree-related they are. She says what we're all thinking but don't say because we're afraid people will think we're dumb.
And one day, when Walters is honored with a lifetime achievement award, this interview in which she calls Chris Christie fat to his face will be the best part of the clip reel.
Skip to 1:50 for the Chris Christie clip. Or just start at the beginning– Barbara Walters asking Hillary Clinton about her hair is equally ridiculous:

If Rick Santorum accomplishes nothing else this election cycle, he should be proud that he's made me question my own non-belief. When the world sends you someone so vividly quotable, it becomes difficult not to accept it as providential grace…
GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum said…that watching John F. Kennedy's speech to the Baptist ministers in Houston in 1960 made him want to "throw up."
"To say that people of faith have no role in the public square? You bet that makes you throw up. What kind of country do we live that says only people of non-faith can come into the public square and make their case?" Santorum said…Santorum also said he does not believe in an America where the separation of church and state is "absolute."
Santorum distorts the message of Kennedy's speech until it's indecipherable, but it offers an opportunity to challenge Indecision readers to a quote-off. Match the religion-related quote with the Republican politician who uttered it, then weep. Answers below the fold.

I don't know if you've noticed, but there's been something missing in American presidential politics of late. Something of vital importance. And former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton just might be the man to bring it back…
"Yes, I am considering [running for president in 2012]," Bolton told conservative radio show host Aaron Klein's on WABC in New York. "If I did run, and I haven't made a decision, I have never run for office one way or the other, so it would be a pretty big decision to do it."
Bolton, who serves as a Fox News commentator, said he's concerned that the national discourse does not include talk of foreign policy.
That's right! I'm talking, of course, about facial hair. Not since Taft has this great nation been graced with a proper presidential mustache. (And, no, I don't count whatever that dirt was on Obama's upper lip for those few days in June.) And let's not even get into how long we've gone without a full beard or mutton chop sideburns.
Oh, man, it's been too long, hasn't it? Sure, Bolton's idea of foreign policy is waggling his dick in the face of every foreign leader. But look at that glorious stash! I cannot imagine a person better equipped to lead our country bristle-first into a shining new day. Aside from Wilford Brimley, but I have not yet heard anything about him running. (Here's hoping!)
