Nicole at C&L posted this clip of the ever-lame Senator Graham lisping about Obama's "timidity." (Because the President has demurred from stomping all over the delicate situation unfolding in Iran.)
What caused me to laugh out loud, though, was his demand that Obama speak "truth to power." Multiple times.
Lindsey Graham insists that the President of the United States, the very Locus of Empire, speak "truth to power."
(Insert deadpan stare here.)

Heather at Crooks & Liars' Video Cafe posts a roast at the Radio & TV Correspondents' Dinner, served by the inimitable John Hodgman. (I apologize for writing "inimitable.")
My politically over-stimulated brain substituted "progressive" every time Hodgman said "nerd." And, I have to say, after the concluding comments (which were more sentimental than comedic), our preternaturally cool President seemed to becoming aware of a knot swelling up the backside of his head...
...but maybe that's just me.
