"But Um..." Division

Perry's Brain Freeze
The TV show "How I Met Your Mother" had a bit about a drinking game whenever Robin said "but um" on her early morning TV news show.

Trying that with Rick Perry could lead to alcohol poisoning.

Where's the Drama?
Sorry, but the Republican primary season is all over except for the rending of clothes and gnashing of teeth. Mitt Romney will be the candidate with Tim Pawlenty his Veep. In the grand tradition of Jerry Ford, Bob Dole, and John McCain, Republicans are going to pick the only man they universally loath and the one man in their party with a total and complete lack of charisma. [NOTE: The current Intrade odds are: Romney (2 to 5), Ginchrich (10 to 1) Paul (19 to 1), Perry (21 to 1), Cain (22 to 1), Huntsman (30 to 1) and Bachmann (90 to 1)]

Really Too Big to Fail
Who could have predicted it? Italy has been led for over a decade (on and off) by the most insane person to head a Roman government since Nero. Who could have expected the fourth biggest economy in Europe would now be on the brink of collapse as a result? Italy is too big to fail because in failing it will drag down the whole of the European Union. However, it is also too big to save. Italy is a real life Humpty-Dumpty.
