http://twitter.com/#!/CajunTomato/status/476307491283013633 It’s always too early for that.

http://twitter.com/#!/TJSullivanLA/status/454608342346788865 Yesterday, during a speech in Las Vegas, a woman was arrested after throwing a shoe at Hillary Clinton. During a press conference in Baghdad in 2008, George W. Bush dodged two shoes that were thrown at him by an Iraqi journalist. CNN asked which person was the superior shoe dodger: http://twitter.com/#!/CNN/status/454604189977821184 If the voting ends in a tie, will CNN recommend a “dodge-off” competition between Bush and Clinton? Some didn’t any news-worthiness in the question: http://twitter.com/#!/RebeccaTownsend/status/454605354459209728 For most of those who answered the question, Bush was […]

Their mission? To screech about everything from abortion restrictions to fast-food wages.

Brit Hume’s instant classic Obamacare truth-bomb becomes a meme [pic]

http://twitter.com/#!/brithume/status/395561880334643200 In October, Fox News’ Brit Hume nailed the devastating reality of Obamacare with that tweet. Months later, he appears tickled to discover that his words have received the meme treatment. http://twitter.com/#!/brithume/status/436697031986655232 Uh oh. Is Hume dipping his toes in the meme-sturbatory #Fugelsanging pool? http://twitter.com/#!/BigJebBos/status/436698192055640065 Nah. He gets a pass since he’s just noting that the pic is “ricocheting around on Twitter.” And besides, Brit Hume is no John Fugelsang. That science is settled. The October tweet has 3,270 retweets and last night’s tweet has over 560 […]
