Can this be actually so?

Via Althouse and the Weekly Standard some things are so incredible that one can’t wrap your head around it.

Does this mean that the Obama administration is planning on giving some freed Guantanamo detainees a stipend? It sure appears that way. So, not only is the Obama administration planning on freeing some detainees on U.S. soil, it is also going to pay them to live here. Amazing. Who would have thought that we would see the day when detainees who were once labeled enemy combatants would be receiving welfare?

That this type of thing hasn’t caused a media riot amazes me.

The kid’s girl comes over today…

…and the wife wants the place spotless. This is going to be an interesting afternoon.

When I was dating my wife my folks would go upstairs, but then again we were in our early 20’s.

A peek in the secret “Jourolist”

Kaus gets the thread, Glenn and Mark and Moe (the new stooges?) provide the snark but Jonah has the best description:

I think that excerpt demonstrates nicely why I thought the whole thing was so funny in the first place. Obviously it’s just one excerpt and I’m sure there are serious conversations that take place over there too. But even going by that one example, it’s pretty clear that the list itself and the qualities and qualifications of those on it is a major concern to those on it. It’s like the liberal egghead version of Heathers.

Boy I wish I introduced myself to Jonah at the Boston meeting back in ’04.
