SHORT TAKES ON THE DRIFTING WRECKAGE – AT 10:53 P.M. ET:

GUNSLINGER –  The president of the United States has announced in an interview with The New Republic that "up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time."  So the president has, poof, suddenly become a shooter.  We understand that tomorrow he will be an astronaut.  Fireman on Tuesday.  Wednesday is brain surgeon time.  It is wonderful that Dear Leader has so many skills that he has modestly hidden from us.  Okay, you can stop laughing.

DID YOU KNOW?  From Fox:  "The price of a first-class stamp for domestic mail rose Sunday from 45 cents to 46 cents, while postcards cost 33 cents to send. The USPS rolled out the pricing changes alongside a new stamp – the Global Forever – which lets people mail one-ounce letters to anywhere in the world for $1.10."  Given the state of our educational system, the USPS should charge an extra dollar to write the letter for any graduate of an American high school.

EYEBROWS RAISED – Former GOP vice-presidential candidate raised eyebrows today when he said, on "Meet the Press," that  "if we had a Clinton presidency, if we had Erskine Bowles chief-of-staff at the White House, or President of the United States, I think we would have fixed this fiscal mess by now. That's not the kind of presidency we're dealing with right now."  Hmm.  Was that a subtle endorsement of a Hillary run for the presidency from a Republican?  Hard to say, but it was no valentine to Obama.
