It can't be soon enough to suit me.
Maggie over at her Notebook (who has just returned from a luxurious vacation where it was warm, beautiful, and interesting - able to engage in lovely activities like eating gourmet food, sinful shopping, and mega-sightseeing - while most of us were languishing in the snow or rain and doing nothing better or more interesting than gazing out our bedroom windows, where we may or may not have had something lovely to gaze upon. Ooops - sorry, got carried away there for a moment. I really, really am glad she had a break from the mundane and do not begrudge her a good time. Really!)
Anyhoo, Maggie reminds us how disconnected that fool in the White House really is: Obama Putts Japan Drowns, Burns, Explodes, Starves -and we thank her.

Pundette shows her disgust World in crisis, Obama hits links
I'm torn between wanting him gone since he can do less damage while in Rio than DC, and passing some sort of legislation to stop this insane running around the world for no good reason.
But, wait! Be still my beating heart. The St. Paul Pioneer Press, bastion of liberalism, has posted an unflattering story about Obama's time on the links (I believe it's 62 or so since he was sworn in), and his upcoming trip. It gets better. There are 85+ comments, mostly from folks in Minneapolis and St. Paul, calling him the doofus he is. Hope springs eternal...
From the Pioneer Press:
As problems rage, Obama fills out brackets and heads for Rio: Is it a problem?
