I am envious. I wish I were able to write golden nuggets dripping with diamonds like these folks. They are my idols. Enjoy, and click the links for more.

Shocking: Levin Johnston Shopping Tell-All Lie Book About Sarah Palin
"...After all, he's accomplished so much -- he had unprotected sex with a younger girl, got her knocked up, and then abandoned her. And then, fearing that he soon might have to get a real job, he tricked her into accepting a false marriage proposal so he could sell the story to Us weekly for $100,000 (and also shop a reality show about the sham marriage)..." - Ace of Spades
Can We Dispense, Now, With The Myth That They Feel Our Pain?
"Honestly, I don’t care about the frequency with which our King and his Queen vacation from the tough grind of their having to talk out of both sides of their mouths. And I’ve long since grown accustomed to taking a shiv in the back at the 4th rib from the Monarchy on a fairly routine basis.…but, can we please stop now with the nonsense of being asked to believe that our rulers are just private folk?" - Redstate
Robert Gibbs: Obama’s Economic Team ‘Exhausted’
 "...We know Gibbs has a flair for the ridiculous, but he’s somehow managed to out-do himself. Besides, who cares how hard Obama’s economists are working? Gilligan worked hard to get off the island too — so what?" - Doug Powers at MichelleMalkin.com
So tasty, too. Just like candy.

Sometimes, Irony is Just Easier

Having principles and consistency is hard work. Being a hypocrite is much easier.
The Mid-Atlantic Regional Council of Carpenters is seeking paid demonstrators to march and chant in its current picket line outside the McPherson Building, an office complex here where the council says work is being done with nonunion labor.

"For a lot of our members, it's really difficult to have them come out, either because of parking or something else," explains Vincente Garcia, a union representative who is supervising the picketing.
Something else, like watching my Maury and Judge Judy reruns. So look for the union label, printed up by some 10 year old Honduran kids probably.

I found this from my hero, Ace of Spades, who got it from the Wall Street Journal.
