Luckiest bird alive: ”This Friday, July 6, 2012, photo, shows a 70-day-old golden eagle in Ogden, Utah, that was feared lost but found burned alive on June 28 behind a charred tree, about 25 feet below the nest that was burned to a crisp in the 5,500-acre Dump Fire near Saratoga Springs. The raptor was taken to the Wildlife Rehbilitation Center of Ogden where it was nicknamed ‘Phoenix.’” Do yourself a favor and click the full-resolution version of this photo. (photo by Leah Hogsten/The Salt Lake Tribune/AP)

Sometimes a photo tells the whole story: ”Torn election posters of French President and UMP candidate Nicolas Sarkozy are seen in Paris Sunday, May 6, 2012. France voted in a presidential run-off election Sunday expected to see Socialist challenger Francois Hollande defeat incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy by capitalizing on public anger over spending cuts and a Europe-wide push for austerity.” Sarkozy has conceded defeat in the election, wishing his opponent “good luck.” (Photo by Francois Mori/AP)

President Obama reading Where The Wild Things Are during the White House Easter Egg Roll. 
That is all.

That’s sure a Poe look for him.

Your daily Ron Swanson Nick Offerman: ”There’s so much luck involved in mixing up a pot of goulash, and you’re not sure exactly which ingredient is going to make you say, `You know, that’s a delicious meal.’ Sometimes it’s the cumin that takes it over the top. If I were ever referred to as the cumin on ‘Parks and Recreation,’ I would consider it high praise.” (previously; photo by Victoria Will/AP)

Apocalypse now? Donald Trump is going to moderate a debate.
Who would show up for such a thing? Likely everybody.

Though presidential candidates may initially balk at the idea of  appearing in a debate where Mr. Trump – with his bombast and The Hair –  is the one posing the questions, they may ultimately see it as an  invitation they can’t refuse. In fact many of the candidates have  already met with him, some more publicly than others. Representative Michele Bachmann has sat down with Mr. Trump several times this year. Gov. Rick Perry of Texas had dinner with him at Jean Georges, the posh Manhattan restaurant. And Mitt Romney paid a visit but carefully avoided being photographed.
And Newsmax is a powerful player itself. It has a broad reach into the conservative base, with monthly  Web traffic second only to Fox News among sites with  conservative-leaning audiences.


Looks like our post-Christmas plans just got a little crazy.

Herman Cain and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Herman Cain’s doing kinda crappy, but he’s not exactly dead in the water yet. In fact, he’s way up on Mitt Romney in South Carolina, according to a poll that came out after the scandal.
