And I share your frustrated feelings about "breaking news." Wouldn't it be fun if there were alternative banners? "Slightly stale news," "Not so new news," "Same old, same old."

You've inspired me to hold a Palinout of my own. It lasted for ten minutes. Seriously--you're not missing anything. The die is set, y'all. It's all about execution now.

But really, does that change yr mind on anything? Claudia, hold fast! You’ve inspired me to hold a Palinout of my own. It lasted for ten minutes.
