Many thanks to my estimable colleague for covering me for the past few hours. My aging PC and I had a little date with destiny that required immediate attention.

Whenever I’m away from the site for a stretch I like to come back with The Truth. So here’s the chairman of the DNC meeting some of his core constituents and shamelessly pretending like he doesn’t know what they’re talking about. That’s not surprising: when asked at one of the primary debates in 2003 about his own notorious foray into Trutherism, he ducked the question so pathetically that even the true-blue leftists at Slate felt compelled to call him on it.

No big loss. These guys are probably voting Republican anyway.
