From the Department of Glaringly Obvious Headlines

A few quick hits:

"High Court questions broad use of FOIA exemption"

By President Transparency's open administration, of course. 

"Obama may delay Hawaiian vacation over tax fight"

Don't strain yourself, sir.  Fret not; we're sure you'll still be able to score some prime tee times.

"U.S. Rep. John Conyers says he's sorry, will repay government for son's use of congressional vehicle"

Darn skippy he will.  In other news, an expensive 2010 Cadillac Escalade SUV apparently is a perfectly valid choice for a run of the mill "government vehicle".  An identical size but less-tony hence less-expensive Chevy Tahoe just wouldn't do?  It sure is nice to be one of the overlords who control the purse-strings.

"John Conyers III, 20, had worked in a $15-an-hour part-time job for his mother, Monica Conyers, a Detroit city councilwoman, before she pleaded guilty to federal bribery charges."  (emphasis ours)

Christmas dinner this year is sure going to be interesting in that particular household.

"Democratic Leader Says Will Force Vote on Dream Act" 

He doesn't have the votes; it's merely pandering to his base.  

Bring it on, Mr. Reid.  A failure to pass this amnesty bill during the lame-duck session will hopefully make it go away for a good while at least, as forever is probably too much to hope for.
