If I had more time, I'd write tomorrow's Blog House today. Instead, we'll have to settle for the continuing Bachmann Retardapalooza -otherwise known as Tim O'Brien's the Letter o' the Day - which, I'm guessing, won't be a whole lot different:
Goodbye, Katherine Harris; hello, Michele Bachmann! Did Minnesotans really elect this woman?
Well, some of them did. The ones who didn't buy the lies and caricatures pooped out by some aggressively stupid and bigoted people. These people who voted Bachmann into office are otherwise known as "the normal, well adjusted" ones.

We have enough morons here. Stick to drooling on your own local paper.
EXTRA SPECIAL BONUS MORON MAIL:
Dan Balz, in his Jan. 24 perspective on the president's State of the Union address, comments that the speech may be remembered as "The audacity of hope." More apropos might be "The audacity of cluelessness."

Oh SNAP! I bow down before your superior wit. I bet you stayed up all week thinking that one up. I'm not worthy to reproduce your letter here, much less fisk it. So I will just leave it at that, and merely allow the world to soak in your genius zinger.
