Amy Klobuchar, Gust of Helium

Not to put too fine a point on it, but we have sent a couple of slack-jawed morons to the United States Senate:

At her Senate confirmation hearing Wednesday, Kagan was asked by Sen. Amy Klobuchar about "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" movie, which opened this week. The franchise has a huge following among teenage girls and has sparked debate over whether the tormented heroine Bella should choose Edward the vampire or Jacob the werewolf.

The senator jokingly asked Kagan's thoughts on "the vampire versus the werewolf."

There is precedent for this sort of thing. Who can forget the magic moment when Orrin Hatch asked Samuel Alito whether he preferred Ginger or Mary Ann? Wait, you don't remember that. I'm sure it happened. Hmm, might have to do a Lexis-Nexis search on that one....

The good news? This is one of the people who decided how health care is delivered in this country. I'm sure you feel better about it now.

Al's drawing pictures, and Amy's a feature writer for People Magazine. What a fine representatiion. We'd do better with Bullwinkle and Rocky Squirel.

Oh, yes - Rocky and Bullwinkle as the senators from Minnesota! They'd get to the bottom of that Russian spy ring, which is no doubt another would-be fiendish plot by Boris Badonov and Natasha Fatale!

Sitting down there on yοuг counter, it baгely appears able of this ѕοгt оf miracles,
but the primary timеrѕ and the seasoned cooks alike will
relіsh introducing that cοnνentiοnаl taѕte to
