Made it to my destination- flew Southwestern for the first time, and man the open seating is genius. I found the fattest guy I could sitting by himself in a window seat, and I took the aisle seat. I knew no one would sit between us. It also seems like there is a helluva lot more leg room.
BTW- I’m laughing at the Lieberman stuff. Will all the folks who spent the last few weeks trashing the WH for being insufficiently aggressive with the public option please write up your apologies long-form? I’ll check memeorandum for you later. Pretty clearly, the swarthy guy knew the whip count better than Harry Reid. Imagine that! Of course, by noting that Team Obama has more political awareness and skill than Senate Democrats just makes me an O-bot.
Although I hear if you wish really hard and scream “Just words” at Obama, Lieberman might change his mind. That is how this shit works- I read it on the internet!
