Good morning.

The President was in Ohio over the weekend. Kept seeing tweets that reported the crowd at Ohio State University was 35,000. That’s impressive. The candidates in Ohio sure need some help.

Today, the President is hosting the White House Science Fair. Sounds pretty cool, especially considering the last president tried to eliminate science. The White House also informs us:

The President will also announce his personal appearance on the upcoming December 8, 2010 episode of Discovery Channel’s MythBusters, a popular television show which uses science to determine the truth behind urban legends.

Tonight, Obama will be a at a DSCC fundraiser in Rockville.

There was a lot of buzz yesterday with Meghan McCain’s comments on “This Week” that Christine O’Donnell scares her and is a “nut job.” Here’s the thing, Meghan: Christine O’Donnell is the progeny of Sarah Palin. And, Sarah Palin was inflicted upon us by your father in 2008. So, the McCain clan is not without sin here. Christine O’Donnell is in your family’s political tree.

The TODAY Show showed the clip of Rand Paul refusing to shake hands with Jack Conway after their Kentucky Senate debate last night. Classy, Rand.
