Morning is being taken up with bringing the dog to the vet, so I haven’t had a chance to do more than watch the video below, but it occurred to me that if President Obama has any sense of humor at all he’ll come out today and echo Bush in ’06, acknowledging Brown’s stunning upset in Massachusetts by saying “it was a thumpin’.”
It takes a big man to make a joke at his own expense, though, an even bigger man to say “the people have spoken” and adjust to it. How big is Obama? We still don’t know.
I couldn’t believe someone put this together so quickly!

A most revealing chart that you can save for the next time you hear that MSNBC and CNN are (per the WH) “real” news outfits, and Fox is not fair. Very interesting. And sad, too.
