What passes for diplomacy

This MAD TV youtube video would be funnier if it weren't so sadly descriptive of our president's policies: Introducing ......... the Apple iRack.

Also, this is perhaps the most innovative thing that Joe Lieberman has done since getting reelected: changed the seating chart.

Lieberman Hatches New Seating Arrangement

Sen. Joseph Lieberman (D-CT) and Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) are changing the seating arrangements for members of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, according to Washington Wire.

"For future hearings, Democrats and Republicans won’t sit on opposite sides of the dais but rather, next to each other -- alternating Democrat, Republican, Democrat, Republican etc."

In a joint statement, Lieberman and Collins said "In the last election, the voters said they were sick of the partisanship that produces gridlock… So, as a start, instead of sitting on opposite sides of the room like a house divided, we want the American people to see us sitting side by side as our committee members work together make our nation more secure and our government more efficient."

Ah, yes. Bipartisan Joe strikes again! We're counting down the days until he:

1) Asks the Dems and Republicans to stop referring to each other as "having cooties."
2) Forces them to make nice nice.
3) Subjects them to a 5 minute timeout if found pulling each other's hair.

Then the Great Lieberator can call for a truce, ring both sides together, and stab the Democrats in the back.
