On this day:

A night like this enough to make me want to start blogging again.

What an extraordinary election! Here in Alabama, Republicans made a clean sweep of those statewide offices up for election, and come January, both houses of the state legislature will have Republican majorities for the first time in 136 years. ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY-SIX years. And it wasn't even close.

Nationwide, Republicans have won control of the House of Representatives by a large margin. They failed to win the Senate, but with the election of folks like Mario Rubio and Pat Toomey, I'm convinced that their minority status will be temporary.

Happy, happy, joy, joy...

Happy Bastille Day!

If you're a Frenchman, raise both hands so we'll know who you are!

I hear they celebrated in Paris today by planting trees along the Champs Elysees - so that next time the Germans can march in the shade.

They were going to have a big fireworks show at the Eiffel Tower this evening, but after the first shot, France surrendered to China.

The French army will be entertained tonight with a special showing of its favorite film - Forrest Gump. Nike will be providing free running shoes as door prizes. Coppertone will be handing out free sunscreen so the army men won't burn their armpits; Gillette will give away razors so the women can shave theirs. Rosetta Stone will provide copies of their software so that soldiers will be able to say "I surrender" in any language. Swiss Army will be distributing their famous knives, customized for use by the French military: the logo will be a white cross on a white background.

In honor of Bastille Day, the U.N. flew a white flag at its NYC headquarters today. President Obama sent a note of congratulations to the French people, in which he commended them for their support in the war against terrorism, especially for teaching the terrorists how to properly surrender.

The French have commissioned a new ship for their navy this Bastille Day. A marvel of engineering, it has a glass bottom so that its sailors can see all the other ships in the French Navy.

On a sad note, a French soap factory burned to the ground today. Oh...never mind...that wasn't in France.

Congratulations, Dr. Bentley

Two doctors won the Republican primary tonight - Robert Bentley and Paul Hubbert. It's hard to say which one deserves the most credit.

Raising my middle finger's Claire Suddath asks "Why are Southerners So Fat?"

I'm looking forward to her article on why Yankees are so f***ing rude.

It's easy to get them confused

Obama trips up.

Or maybe he was just having a little fun.

I would have.

Paul Sanford wins big in Alabama Senate race

A conservative Republican replaces Democrat Parker Griffith, who was elected to the U.S. House last November. And this actually is a laughing matter.

Thought for the day

If you believe that money grows on trees, why on earth would you try to clear the forest?
