Pejman Yousefzadeh asks:
Does Andrew Sullivan read what he links to?
It's nice when you can figure out the answer simply by looking at the question.
I, for one, would love to see a one hour, uncensored, no ground rules,
interview of John Kerry by Tom Maguire.
a collection of self-reference jokes.
I'm the humblest person I know.Not included, but I think could be, is this old one from Ronnie Shakes:
I was going to buy a copy of The Power of Positive Thinking, and then I thought: What the hell good would that do?
Barack Obama comes back to phony earth: he's still leading, but looks catchable:

One minor phony news story was the recent effort to impeach Dick Cheney led by our space-case hero, Dennis Kucinich. All but 5 House Democrats voted to shuffle this embarrassment off to committee. (Amusingly, almost all Republicans voted with Kucinich to keep it on the floor. "Bring it, Dennis!") The UnCapitalist Journal comments:
Ha ha! The UnCapitalist got a new thesaurus as an early Christmas present! He or she also identifies Kucinich as being "(R-OH)", so I'd suggest picking up the Almanac of American Politics as well.
