|Newt as evil troll (from Dangerousminds.net)|

I heard Rachel Maddow call them the "Seven Dwarfs," a reference to to the 1988 Democratic hopefuls,* but these guys and gals are so much more diverse than that. We've got a whole damn fairy tale here.
I'm just so glad Christine is back and I can share the Youtube video of her "I am not a witch" ad, auto-tuned. Strangely moving. Now it's back to my lair beneath the Kosciuszko Bridge.
*In 1988, the Democratic candidates were dismissed as the "Seven Dwarfs." Okay, the Duke was a bit of a dwarf, and Paul Simon did wear that goofy bow-tie, but Bruce Babbitt, Al Gore, Joe Biden, Jesse Jackson, Dick Gephardt--not exactly lightweights. Time to get out your Tanner '88.
