Glenn Beck goes Ape; McCain vs. McCain; Ritzy Harry Reid
Glenn Beck, in his daily struggle against the dark forces of insanity, suffered another reversal on Wednesday that he doesn't believe in evolution because "I haven't seen a half-monkey, half-person yet."
Beck, who apparently has been studying evolution with Delaware's Christine O'Donnell, probably wouldn't see a half-monkey even if such a beast did exist. This is because Beck is spending his time hoarding freeze-dried food and waiting for the apocalypse -- or a similar calamity Beck hopes will not happen but "probably will."
Ignorance of the law is no defense. Particularly when you wrote the law. This peculiar situation now confronts John McCain, who stands accused by Democrats of violating... McCain-Feingold campaign finance legislation.
May we suggest the Days Inn on Connecticut Avenue?
Politicians' problems with hotels are perennial. Al Gore was ridiculed because he grew up in the Fairfax Hotel in Dupont Circle. Eliot Spitzer's political career ended because of a stay at the Mayflower. The list goes on and on: Monica Lewinsky at the Pentagon City Ritz Carlton, Dick Morris at the Jefferson, and burglars at the Watergate.
Now comes an attack ad against Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader who likes to talk about his hardscrabble upbringing in Searchlight, Nev., but now resides at the Ritz Carlton in Washington. Democrats' best defense: That California Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina lives at the same hotel.
Seems both of them are in danger of getting the turndown service.
