Prediction for 2035:  Jefferson County, Colorado lame duck Sheriff John
"Stonewall" Stone will issue a statement that "one or two" of his officers "may"
have been at the scene of the Columbine High School shooting in 1999 and not
across town helping thwart an invasion of space slugs from Alpha Centuri. 
Speaking through a sugar donut, Sheriff Stone said "Mwwefflef pfwaffstaff
spuffista.  Kallwdff pffstsffs mummffafsl afwfwuffel!"

Mixed Metaphor Award

Time to present another Mixed Metaphor Award. This go around the award goes to Barack Obama staffer Mika Brzezinski:

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Well, but you can’t argue that the Clinton campaign didn’t do some serious damage in light of the Wright stuff and the bitter comments–

SCARBOROUGH: That wasn’t the Clinton campaign.

BRZEZINSKI: They pounced on it like lemmings.

SCARBOROUGH: That wasn’t the Clinton campaign–

BRZEZINSKI: Oh, please.

SCARBOROUGH: And I don’t know if lemmings actually pounce. I think lemmings go over cliffs.
