Happy Birthday, Derek. I have sent both card and check to the Home for Feckless Presidents. There's a peanut farmer there who wants some company. I believe he will have has wish, soon. If you are ever in Maine, look me up. I know a little place on the coast that has the best lobster roll in the world. My treat...

There’s desperation. Then there’s the Obama-Biden re-election campaign’s fundraising operation.

Remember that Seinfeld episode where George Costanza, because he’s cheap and didn’t want to buy co-workers anything for Christmas, gave everyone a card saying a gift had been made in their name to the “Human Fund”? The Human Fund didn’t exist. George made it up because he was just that cheap.

But those “I gave your gift to someone else” charitable donations do exist. I get a few of them every year from people who shouldn’t be giving me gifts in the first place. It never occurred to me...
