Joe Miller hires the "Christian Indiana Jones"; Obama packs bag lunch; Meg Whitman wastes $139 million

Don't mess with Joe Miller.

First, the Republican nominee for the Senate from Alaska caused a stir when the active-duty military bodyguards protecting him handcuffed a reporter who was trying to ask the candidate questions. Now comes word from Mother Jones that Miller has hired a consultant named Terry Moffitt who describes himself as the "Christian Indiana Jones" and claims to have "received death threats from a radial [sic] Islamic groups and been bitten by a very nasty spider in Australia."

"Radial" Muslims, in case you didn't know, are significantly more dangerous than those who use snow tires.

Watch this drive.

President Obama is mere days from an election that will define the rest of his term, and he's clearly on his game. On Sunday, he devoted his precious time to a game of golf at Andrews Air Force Base.

But let it not be said that this president is out of touch with these austere times. According to the White House pool report, Obama "appeared to be carrying his own foil-wrapped sandwich."

One hundred and thirty-nine million dollars later, Republican Meg Whitman's closing pitch in the California gubernatorial race begins with an admission that she's seen as "a billionaire with no government experience."

Mr. Milbank,

You'll be glad to know that because of your article, Moffit (code name 185R15) has removed his slur against "radial" Islamist groups. The billions of peaceful Muslims who use radial tires are our friends. We must reserve our "bias" for those who "ply" their terrorist trade on snow tires, using Australian spiders.

I'll have you know that President Obama did NOT play golf at Andrews AFB as you report. He flew to Massachusetts for a round of golf with David Katz, from the Department of Energy. They were testing a top-secret, foil-wrapped energy saving device for Air Force One. The plane came back with 100 more gallons of jet fuel than it left with.

And sure, Meg Whitman may have no government experience, and maybe she should have run for Miss Wasilla first. But later in the ad, she promised voters she would, "treat you like grown-ups." I, for one, am tired of the Terminator calling me a girlie-man just because I cried when the stock market gave me a spanking. From now on, I'm buying my diapers on eBay.
