While in Thailand, President Obama apparently consulted a Buddhist monk about the deficit talks currently underway in Congress.
"If a Buddhist monk is wishing me well, I'm going to accept any good vibes he can give me."
For the second consecutive week, Bill Kristol went on Fox News Sunday and advocated for Republicans in Congress to accept President Obama's demands of raising tax rates on the wealthiest Americans. As Bob Woodward says, "they're going to burn Bill Kristol's Tea Party card, hearing him talk like this."
SNL covered the biggest (and apparently only) story of the week last night with three full segments on General David Petraeus, his biographer/mistress Paula Broadwell, the mysterious Jill Kelly and the media's reaction to the scandal. First, in the cold open, we saw Paula Broadwell read some sexy excerpts from her book All In: The Education of General David Petraeus on C-SPAN's "Booknotes." Next up, Wolf Blitzer enlists some of Tampa's finest to figure out who exactly Jill Kelly is. Finally, Seth Meyers presents his Winners and Losers of the Petraeus scandal.
