The New York Marathon welcomed the entry of rescued Chilean miner Edison Pena Tuesday. He trained by running six miles a day in the mine tunnels while he was trapped underground for two months. The only guy who ran harder for survival was Barney Frank.
President Obama met with reporters Wednesday, one day after the American voters gave him a terrible beating. In two years he's gone from Jesus to Rodney King. Last night Johnnie Cochran appeared to Barack Obama in a dream and told him he's got a case.
Election Day saw a record turnout Tuesday thanks to beautiful weather and a massive GOP turnout. The shoe was clearly on the other foot. After the congressional election result was posted, Indonesia offered the Democrats millions in tsunami relief.
President Obama called and saluted the San Francisco Giants Tuesday for winning the World Series the night before. It's usually done right after the game. Well, if he can't carry the white male vote at least he can show women he's the kind of guy who calls the next day.
Democrat Joe Manchin won West Virginia's U.S. Senate race Tuesday by distancing himself from Obama. In one TV ad he raised a rifle and shot a hole through the president's Cap and Trade bill. While nominally a Democrat, he plans to caucus with the Sons of Anarchy.
Charlie Sheen filed for divorce from his third wife just a week after his spectacular relapse in New York. He's reportedly holed up in his Bel Air mansion with champagne and cigars and cocaine and call girls. If James Fenimore Cooper could have written the biography of Charlie Sheen, it would have been called The Last of the Southern Democrats.
