Don't Know Much

There hasn't been this bad a case of 'I don't know who did it' since President Bush's infamous Mission Accomplished banner in 2004.

Apparently, the Federal Reserve played a role in assuring the ill-considered bonus payouts to AIG executives, as did the Treasury Department (though whether this lands on Timothy Geithner's desk or Henry Paulson's isn't known at this time; Republicans, of course, are blaming Geithner).

Kudos to President Obama stepping up and saying that the buck stops at his desk, but there needs to be some teeth behind that line for it to be effective.


Former President Bush says he plans on writing an 'authortarian' account of his time in the Oval Office.

The correct word is, 'authoritative.'


You'd think that the one thing Meghan McCain could count upon is the support of her father, Senator John McCain.

Meghan has recently been the target of criticism from conservatives like Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham. But instead of substantive criticism or rational discussion of the issues, it's been about Meghan's weight.

But in an interview with ABC News, Senator McCain could only offer a vague, 'I'm proud of my daughter and she has a right to her opinions,' and, '... like any family, we agree on some things and disagree on others.'

Really, Senator - all you had to say was that you were dismayed that Coulter and Ingraham were choosing to focus on Meghan's weight.
