Random commentary and senseless acts of blogging.
The first Republican president once said, "While the people retain their virtue and their vigilance, no administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years." If Mr. Lincoln could see what's happened in these last three-and-a-half years, he might hedge a little on that statement.

It Depends on what the Meaning of Resign Is
Avedon Carol notes the 'resignation' of Katherine Harris as Florida Secretary of State. Harris's resignation, submitted in August, is effective July 15, becasue she was legally required to resign then. However, she has been appointed acting Secretary of State by Jeb Bush, so she continues to hold the office and presumably receive the pay even though she resigned yesterday and her resignation 'took effect' a few weeks ago.
Hey, why bother actually being honest when you can do whatever you like and then define honest as whatever you did?
