This is indeed unprecedented. There have never been so many bombs in such a short period of time that didn’t involve either Ben Affleck, Ben Stiller, or Whoopi -sans eyebrows- Goldberg.

If you’re due for a prostate exam (or any other exam that requires a delicate touch), I sure hope you got it a week ago, because now the docs might be a bit agitated. Let’s hope they can compartmentalize, otherwise you’ll experience first hand H.L. Menken’s quote in a very real way:
“Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”
When you see an Obama supporter, be sure to express your gratitude.
