So we have a new jack ass on the list … that’s good. I don’t think that it’s really a surprise to anyone. And we have some of the coolest guys to wear the uniform who gave Kerry what for

But who else was warning you about violent squirrels?

“It was a freak thing. It was traumatic,” Dougherty told The Derrick newspaper. “I saw it there on the porch, put the mail in the box and turned to walk away and it jumped on me.”

She said the animal ran up her leg and onto her back.

“I eventually got a hold of the tail and pulled it off me,” Dougherty said.

She is lucky it didn’t use the Force.

“In about 230 years of postal history, I bet it is not the first, but I’ve personally never heard of another squirrel biting,” said Steve Kochersperger, spokesman for the Erie district. 

Huh? What a convoluted sentence … he should work as a Kerry speech writer.

The UN: Just like your Middle School

I guess that everyone must think this is very cute, and how wonderful it is that world leaders can cut up, share a laugh, grow.

Peanut Gallery

Given that the US was paying for this venomous pile of bilge to speak to the UN – and by paying I mean in GDP-related man hours, federal tax dollars, and prime Turtle Bay Real Estate – I think its time to demand an official and comprehensive apology.

But note that at the end, DG is still a jack ass as he insists on trying to make his non-point. Bush does some nice jiu-jitsu to get him to STFU.

David Gregory (NBC): Not Not repeating Democratic Talking Points

Tony Snow is a genuinely nice guy. Given his public persona, which is really all I know, I have tremendous respect for the guy. He’s a mensch. David Gregory is a jack ass. Not in that hard-bitten, “I’m a reporter covering the beat” sort of way either. He’s a jack ass. He acts like a jack ass. He talks like a jack ass.
