Also, for some reason I've been easily irritated and cranky--bordering on mischievously cranky, for some reason--so I'm going to lie down and read. Something. Anything. I came about as close to flaming someone as I ever have today, and it wasn't even over anything interesting.

Specter: Bush not sole 'decision-maker.' "A Senate Republican on Tuesday directly challenged President Bush's declaration that 'I am the decision-maker' on issues of war....The question of whether to use its power over the government's purse strings to force an end to the war in Iraq, and under what conditions, is among the issues faced by the newly empowered Democratic majority in Congress, and even some of the president's political allies as well. 'The Constitution makes Congress a coequal branch of government. It's time we start acting like it,' said Sen. Russell Feingold, D-Wis., who presided over a hearing Tuesday on Congress' war powers. He also is pushing legislation to end the war by eventually prohibiting funding for the deployment of troops to Iraq."

From unheardpublic: Police use stun guns on greased, naked student. "A high school lunch period was disrupted Monday by a greased, naked student who ran around screaming and flailing his arms until police twice used a stun gun on him, authorities said. Taylor Killian, 18, had rubbed his body with grapeseed oil to keep from being caught, and got up after the first time he was shocked to continue running toward a group of frightened students huddled in a corner at Westerville North High School, Lt. Jeff Gaylor said. School officials reported that Killian was a good student, Gaylor said. There was no indication of substance abuse or a medical problem." See, we in the South would diagnose that as "done lost his fool mind."

An '80s comic where Superman and Big Barda are forced to film porn. My favorite part is how everyone in the comments volunteers what song they think is playing on the boombox in Barda's exotic dancing scene. I'm going to go with "Naughty Girls Need Love Too," myself.
