The Holidays Are Upon Us

Truly, the news cycle is generally slow. When the number one story on Countdown is Olbermann's visit on the Martha Stewart show, there's really not much going on.

Oh sure, there's activity: We have a president-elect determined to ride the middle way, and he may just be crazy enough to do it. The Cabinet's being picked; the economy does its silly little dance; all of these big companies lining up for the government dole; and everybody is essentially bracing for the madness to begin when January 20th rolls around.

There are little gems to be found. For example, tired of hearing all of the center-right nonsense? Here are the results of a Media Matters report subtitled "Why Conservative America Is A Myth;" and the results of another study showing the spike in the phrase "Center-Right Nation" in the printed media since the election of Barack Obama.

Doldrums. These be they.

It's the holidays...Things are bound to pick up after New Year's Eve.

It is indeed a slow news cycle, but George Bush to the rescue!
