Lame Duck Yucks

In these lame-duck days, as Obama picks his dream team and George Bush shuffles around the White House trying to convince people he did some stuff in the last eight years, there is a bit of a vacuum of political coverage left in the wake of the election. In just the last 24 hours, therefore, we've gotten a trio of political hilarity that may not have come about at all if people really had their game faces on.First: Obama jokes about Bill Richardson's missing beard. Obama is newly hilarious. He must have some new comedy writers.Second: Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen hangs up on Obama, twice, because she thinks he is a prank caller. Sarah Palin's legacy continues.Three: Ed Rendell, the governor of Pennsylvania, quips that Homeland Security nominee Janet Napolitano will be a great pick because she has no family and no life and will simply work 20 hours a day.
