While I Was Gone...

So, it appears that a lot of stuff happened in the past 10 days while I was away...

Herman Cain looked inept:

...and this guy is a front-runner? Yikes.

Pamela Geller and a bunch of anti-Islamic creeps are trying to boycott Butterball because their Turkeys are certified halal:
Non-Muslims in America and Europe don’t deserve to have halal turkey forced upon them in this way, without their knowledge or consent. So this Thanksgiving, fight for your freedom. Find a non-halal, non-Butterball turkey to celebrate Thanksgiving this Thursday. And write to Butterball and request, politely but firmly, that they stop selling only halal turkeys, and make non-halal turkeys available to Americans who still value our freedoms.
TPM adds, "TPM is awaiting a comment from Butterball, and we’ll update when they respond. Meanwhile, stay tuned for our expose on Communist infiltration of the turducken." Heh.

Jon Huntsman makes a plea for votes in New Hampshire -- on SNL:

Oh, and Congress is still Congress:
The Republican-controlled House of Representatives on Friday rejected a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution -- a setback to GOP leaders and conservative activists who claim the measure is necessary to end the federal government's spiraling deficit spending.

A total of 261 members voted for the measure --- 23 votes shy of the two-thirds majority required for passage -- while 165 members opposed it.

Most Republicans supported the measure; most Democrats voted no.

The vote on the amendment was agreed to by both parties over the summer as part of the agreement raising Washington's debt ceiling. Democratic leaders, however, are vehemently opposed to the idea, arguing that it would force the government into an economically destructive cycle of massive spending cuts.

...and you can always 'unfriend' people on Facebook. Biz Markie style:

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving so I will be taking the next few days off (again!) to be with family and friends. My best to you and yours for a safe and happy holiday weekend! If you're drinkin', don't drive. If you're driving, don't drink. And if you're eating a turkey, make sure that you get Pamela Geller's approval...
