This Is The Greatest Story Ever

This is just too awesome.

Earlier this week, New York Times columnist David Brooks wrote about how “the dignity code” has been “completely obliterated” in Washington, DC. Discussing the concept on MSNBC today, Brooks recalled how he “sat next to a Republican senator once at dinner and he had his hand on my inner thigh the whole time”:

BROOKS: You know, all three of us spend a lot of time covering politicians and I don’t know about you guys, but in my view, they’re all emotional freaks of one sort or another. They’re guaranteed to invade your personal space, touch you. I sat next to a Republican senator once at dinner and he had his hand on my inner thigh the whole time. I was like, ehh, get me out of here.

You underestimate David Brooks’ sexual magnetism at your peril.

Also: Pleasepleaseplease let it be Lindsey Graham.

Friday Quote & Croc Blogging

This week’s quote is from Frank Capra’s Shangri-La movie, Lost Horizon:

She’s a fragile thing, and can only live where fragile things are loved.

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s baby crocs:

I’m not actually sure whether it’s a baby croc or some kind of pygmy croc, but it’s kind of adorable all the same.

Wanker Of The Day

Arlen Specter slams primary opponent Joe Sestak for not registering with a political party while an active duty admiral.  I would say that he misleads by ignoring Sestak’s military service, but he does refer to it… as a “lame excuse for avoiding party affiliation.”

It amazes me that anyone could mistake this prick for a Democrat.
