Comedian Rush Limbaugh's insight on the John Edwards/Rielle Hunter affair?

"It just seems to me that Edwards might be attracted to a woman whose mouth did something other than talk."

Limbaugh went on to explain his remark by suggesting that Elizabeth Edwards, "... is smarter than he is and probably nagging him a lot about doing this."

ABC's Cokie Roberts hates Hawaii. It's elitist. Or, rather, it makes Barack Obama seem 'a little bit more exotic,' because he's on vacation in the state where his grandmother lives. Instead, Roberts suggests a place like Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Senator Daniel Akaka of Hawaii offers this rebuttal. "Saying our 50th state is somehow 'foreign,' does a great disservice to the hard working, patriotic Americans who call Hawaii home. For months people have been asking me, 'when is Sen. Obama going to come home?' I'm so glad he found time to visit his sister and his grandmother, show his daughters more of his home state, and relax a little. Hawaii is a great U.S. destination, just ask the 5.5 million Americans who visited last year for business and pleasure."

At his confirmation hearing, Michael Mukasey assured the Senate panel that he would prosecute any crimes he discovered. Senators like Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein promptly went for the okie-doke and voted to confirm a man whose primary job seems to be keeping members of the Bush Administation out of jail.

Speaking before the American Bar Association, Mukasey affirmed that, "Not every wrong, or even every violation of the law, is a crime," and dismissing findings that Kyle Sampson and Monica Goodling violated civil service laws by hiring Justice Department personnel based on their political views.

It's a sad commentary when Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is on vacation, and French President Nicholas Sarkozy brokers a cease-fire between Russia and Georgia.

Oh, now, you can't blame Sarkozy for what he was compelled to do. He just wanted to pass along the French tradition of rolling over and going belly up whenever there's a conflict. "Sit down, shut up, and wait for the USA to get here!"
