There is no joy in Mudflats...

Dan Riehl reports that upon hearing the news that Sen. Kent Conrad (D-ND) said the Senate will never pass a government-funded public health insurance option, and it was futile to continue to "chase that rabbit" -- President Obama...
"...was rumored to have been spotted roaming the White House in a stupor late last night searching for his faux-Greecian, paper mache columns cursing, my kingdom for a Facebook account! Woe is me, oh woe...."  
Riehl says "one fast ball over the plate from Sarah Palin" and the mighty Sox Fan has fanned. Dan goes on to paraphrase Shakespeare, but we were inspired to have our way with some lines from Thayer:
Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
But there is no joy at Mudflats — mighty Barack has struck out.
