John McCain’s views seem to have evolved since four days ago when he told The Three Dumbest People on Television that he would “do everything in my power to block the nomination of Susan Rice to be Secretary of State.”
Now he won’t allow anyone to become Secretary of State until, well, pudding.

On CBS Face the Nation, yesterday, Rick Santorum left CBS’ Bob Schieffer repeatedly incredulous as Santorum gave us what increasingly sounds like his own personal version of Catholic dogma. He’s been hinting that mainline religion in America — read, Protestants — have led America astray, that while President Obama may claim to be a Christian, his governing religion was not based on the Bible. But his remarks on environmental stewardship are equally appalling.

Polling shows the public divided on whether to blame Democrats or Republicans. The establishment media doesn’t want to be seen as choosing sides. And since there is an even split of powers in our Constitution, unlike many other democracies, there isn’t the clear accountability of being able to point to the party that controls this one specific chamber/office as the obvious offender.

Just before Scott Brown won election to be my Senator, political pundits praised Brown for running a smart, effective campaign. It’s now clear that what they meant was that the man could talk effectively out of both sides of his mouth and bamboozle your typical Talking Heads interviewer.
