Late night TV

I stayed up to watch The Daily Show last night. Usually I'm trying to get to bed by 11, but I heard Kucinich would be on. Leigh came downstairs after she heard me laughing so loudly. Great skit on the Texas democrats hightailing it to New Mexico to stall a Republican effort to redistrict, done in mock "report on shocking abuse/concern for the victim" style. At one point, the "reporter" holds up a state of Texas pillow and asks a congressperson: "Show me where Delay tried to redistrict you." And "you can tell me, were you jerrymandered?"

Then Kucinich came on. As soon as he walked onto the studio floor, Leigh said, "there's no way he'll be elected."

Sad, but true.
