Unfortunately, no, I don't think it's some sort of elaborate joke.

Electing a Marxist leads to Marxism? Who could have seen that coming?

At a time when his Washington honeymoon is turning into a hazing, President Barack Obama and his team are launched on a strategy to sail above the traditional White House press corps by reaching out to liberal commentators, local reporters and ethnic media.Oh, wait. We don't even have to imagine it. Anybody else remember Jeff Gannon?
The highest-profile moments in the new approach have been well-noted, such as the president giving an interview to progressive radio host Ed Schultz and Obama calling on a reporter from the liberal-leaning Huffington Post at his first news conference.
This is doubly lame because President Thin-Skin is apparently afraid that the notoriously conservative [yeah, right] Washington press corps are going to be mean and maybe ask a question a little harder than, say, "Is it difficult being the Smartest Man in the World?" Uh-huh.

Fannie Mae is planning to pay retention bonuses of as much as $611,000 each to several top executives of the government-controlled mortgage finance titan. Sibling company Freddie Mac is planning similar awards.So, the geniuses who got us into the mortgage mess by giving people who had no business owning homes toxic loans (I know, RAAAAAACIST!!!) are getting hundreds of thousands in bonus money? I can't wait to hear the shrieks of outrage from the usual suspects.
Oh, and hundreds of Obamatrons camped out overnight to get tickets to see Teh Teleprompter Messiah in a town hall meeting in Costa Mesa. Judging by the people the local Fox affiliate interviewed, he won't have to worry about getting too many tough questions. Well, that is, except for, "Where's my gubmint money? Gimmie gimmie gimme!!!"

By this fall, he’ll be armed with architect’s renderings and will hold travel around the country to meet with groups and build support for the complex on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas.Interestingly enough, none of them is actually quoted in the article. But that's neither here nor there. For me, it's just fun to imagine them having to pass the place every day for the rest of their tenure, cursing under their breath.
Some of his new neighbors are less than thrilled with the plan, with a handful of history and political science professors lined up to criticize it.

Claiming O.J. Simpson was dealt an injustice, an effort is under way to solicit money for the former football star's appeal of his Nevada conviction and prison sentence on kidnapping and armed robbery charges.
Barrett Prody, the brother of Simpson's former girlfriend, created a nonprofit corporation and an Internet Web site, the Society Against Legal Injustice Inc., to raise money for Simpson.
Oh, yeah, that's gonna be right up there with the Red Cross and the Humane Society.

So apparently Justice Souter said that he undergoes a "sort of annual intellectual lobotomy" when the Supreme Court term begins in October, a condition that he said lasts until the end of the term the following summer.
I'm going to avoid the obvious snark here and punt over to Althouse's reaction
Whinging and, seriously, I'm not lying, an actual (tl;dr) point follow:

Passengers are angry about being forced to fly on a new Southwest Airlines plane featuring a bikini-clad model, saying it is "soft porn" and is offensive to families.
Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli, currently dating actor Leonardo DiCaprio, is pictured lying seductively in a revealing white bikini along the length of the Boeing 737 as part of a promotional deal with Sports Illustrated.
The latest addition to the US-based airline was unveiled this month and is deployed like other aircraft in the fleet, servicing all its routes.
The airline has received a flood of criticism on its corporate blog about the promotion, with many passengers complaining about having to board an aircraft “covered in pornography”.
Click on the link to see a photo of this scandalously smutty and sinful pornographic plane. That is, if you aren't afraid of having your very immortal soul damned straight to hell for all of eternity.

Before the inauguration, AFL-CIO President John Sweeney said he'd been to the White House only once in the past eight years. Now he visits at least once a week.Well, that's just great. I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm sure going to sleep better from now on, knowing that a union boss like Sweeney has such easy access to the president.

But that phrase is nowhere to be found in the constitution. It's actually from the Declaration of Independence, as any elementary school civics student could tell you.
Apparently, the audience at CPAC had no idea that Limbaugh had erred, because they fiercely applauded his mistaken attribution.
And that, my friends, gives new meaning to the word "ignorance."
Yeah, you've got us there. It would have been great if someone in the audience had jumped in right there and said, "Hey, Rush, you screwed up there." I mean, it's not like Obama has never ever made such a trivial mistake about this country, right? Right?
I mean, it's not like you're supposed to learn how many states we have by the time you're in grade school, right? Much less when you're a Senator who's running for President of however many states we may have.
After all, it's pretty easy to get confused. Really, who among us can keep track of that sort of thing?
