Number 1 with a bullet, is this guy:
"I undertand the way I handled her was inappropriate," Madison said, tearing up. "No one feels worse than I do." During his trial, Madison had maintained that Sophie was hurt by accident while he was roughhousing with the dog and then fell on her.

Fucker got off WAY too easy.
Fiscal responsibility. Let's talk about it:
"President Obama has called for both parties to get serious about fiscal responsibility,'' says House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), attending Obama's
Hokey dokey. When Obama starts showing that he can be fiscally responsible with our money, I'll start taking him seriously.
He's not in office two weeks before he gets tired of the White House and takes not one, but two trips to Chicago. And how much do you suppose those little jaunts cost you and I?
Using these very conservative figures, Air Force One cost $214,768 and the cargo plane cost $32,140. For a grand total of $246,908 for Mr. Obama’s two round trips.That's not including the helicopter (and the way he's going, I'm surprised he's not plumping for a new one). Or the cost to Chicago's police force to shut down Lake Shore Drive so that he could get home uninterrupted.
[Update: My friend Brian reminds me that they never fly just one AF1, but always fly two. Take that $214,768 and double it, folks.]
I can't remember a President who's spent less time in the Oval office in less than his first 100 days.
But he means well. After all, he's just pledged to add $15 billion more to Medicaid because it's the fiscally responsible thing to do.
After all, it's stimulus money.
"We cannot and will not sustain deficits like these without end. ... We cannotMaybe we can't, but obviously he can.
simply spend as we please and defer the consequences," the president said
By Obama's own account, the new law will add to this fiscal year's deficit,
which the administration projects will be $1.5 trillion.
I'm thinking he's got a super-sized magic money machine tucked into a drawer in his credenza in the Oval Office.
In other encouraging news, Freddie Mac is investigating itself. With both hands and a tube of Astroglide, I'm sure.
