Mulligans: Obama courts gentler opponents
President Obama's last basketball outing had him in stitches (12, to the upper lip), but now he's found some playmates whose elbows aren't quite so sharp: daughters Malia and Sasha.
The incoming Republican House majority hasn't yet sorted out what to do about the deficit, but it has made progress on plans to abolish honorific resolutions. Legislators seeking post office namings would do well to have their resolutions taken up during the lame duck session; the House today takes up H.Res. 1644, "expressing support for designation of a 'National Veterans History Project Week.'"
David Hedrick failed as a Tea Party candidate in Washington state, but he may have a more promising career as a children's book author. In Hedrick's new book, the Liberal Claus, Obama is portrayed as an evil Santa who claims to be from the North Pole (but does not furnish proof -- a birth certificate? -- to back up this claim).
