Mulligans: TSA puts out 'feelers,' Jimmy Carter reveals killer rabbit details
Florida Republican Allen West is fast becoming our favorite congressman-elect. First he tried to hire as his chief of staff a radio personality who had talked about hanging illegal immigrants. Now he's on Meet the Press offering his critique of aggressive pat downs at airports: "We should have put out some type of feelers and talked to the American people about this before we implemented this type of plan."
At long last, Jimmy Carter has broken his silence about the great mystery of his presidency: the killer rabbit attack.
"I was fishing one afternoon," Carter Told our friend Howard Kurtz on CNN's Reliable Sources. "And a rabbit was being chased by hounds.... He jumped in the water and swam toward my boat. When he got almost there, I splashed some water with a paddle."
Carter blamed his press secretary, Jody Powell, for telling reporters about the incident "in a bar after a lot of drinking." Powell is no longer alive to refute the claim, although he once wrote that he revealed the rabbit incident to a reporter over a cup of tea.
On Saturday Night Live, Nancy Pelosi was described as "a woman who always looks like she's watching someone not use a coaster." And a Rachel Maddow character was greeted by a Charlie Rangel character with "Hello, young man."
Presidential wife and mother Barbara Bush, speaking the truth that so many Republicans dare not utter, said of Sarah Palin: "I sat next to her once. Thought she was beautiful. And she's very happy in Alaska, and I hope she'll stay there."
Bush will be disappointed, therefore, to read a report in the Guardian that Palin, who visits Iowa next week, has been looking for office space in the first caucus state.
