At least we still have Ted Stevens to kick around

This may well have been the last chance for a Vietnam veteran to be elected president. Think of all the veterans of World War II, a much shorter war, we’ve had as presidents.

I think that in the spirit of reconciliation, Obama should appoint Sarah Palin ambassador to the nation of Africa.

In a perverse way, I’m quite pleased that Ted Stevens was re-elected. I’m looking forward to the Senate debate on expulsion, to watching Republican senators forced to decide whether to stand with the decrepit felon or not. Meanwhile, the odor of greed and arrogance wafting off him attaches itself to the already stinking corpse of the Republican Party. Good times.

Oh to be a fly on the wall when Obama visits the White House Monday. What will he say to Bush? What will Bush say to him? Possible quotes and sample dialog in comments, please.
