My guess, given his actions during the Civil War, would be Lincoln.

What to make of this photo of Dennis Rodman - the NBA Hall of Famer, cross-dressing, Carmen Electra dating, Celebrity Apprentice contestant and all-around wild man - hanging out in Pyongyang, North Korea with Kim Jong Un, the even more bizarre dictator of what is arguably the world's most (Axis of) evil country? 

Rodman, who is traveling with a contingent of Harlem Globetrotters, and a crew from HBO that's filming the while thing. The North Korean leader is said to be a huge basketball fan.

Enter your best caption for this photo here (not on Twitter) and WWR will send you a t-shirt.

Mine didn't appear, either - thought it didn't pass muster for posting.

I tied the pic to Product Placement Ad with a quip, too.

Can Obama Flip the House to Democrats?

...tough road to 218 (Photo: Bill Clark/Roll Call)

Over the past few weeks, I have heard some people suggest that President Barack Obama’s strategy in pursuing his legislative agenda is more about creating issues for the 2014 midterm elections than about passing legislation.

Whether that is true, it leads to an obvious question: Is the president able to put the House back into Democratic hands, even if he wants to?

Electing a Democratic House next year would allow Obama to push a more unapologetically liberal agenda in his final two years, which he clearly would prefer. And it certainly sounds as if he will be more active during the 2014 midterms than he was in 2010, when his party saw a net loss of 63 House seats and fell into the minority.

He has already committed to holding at least 14 fundraisers for his party’s two congressional campaign committees, including eight for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which will lead the party’s charge to net at least 17 House seats in 2014. He’s also told DCCC Chairman Steve Israel of New York that he will help with candidate recruitment.

Obama loves to fly around the country and talk. He couldn't be bothered to campaign in 2010, but now I think he realizes how much easier he can get his own way if the entire Congress to be Democrats. That would be a disaster for the country. This president has little regard for the Constitution as it is. There needs to be some restraints. Our forefathers new that people can be corrupted so they designed checks and balances. Whether he can force a change depends on many things.(not least of which is how much fraud is perpetrated in that election.

American Hero: Statue of Rosa Parks Unveiled

Rosa Parks today took her place among the giants of American history when her statue was unveiled on Capitol Hill. It stands proudly in Statuary Hall, with two statues from each state. 

Parks, of course, was the Alabama woman who, in 1955, refused to go to the back of a bus, when ordered to do so by the driver. Her defiance sparked a key chapter in America's long civil rights struggle. Hers is an amazing story - here is West Wing Reports's account of it.

Annd to provide Texans a means to do their part, the state has offered various renewable enerrgy incentives which appear in various forms such as propety tax rebates
or incentives based on performance. Especially, the fee is stored by ions as in a
battery. Zoning laws vary from city to city and they
determine whether or not you are allowed to doo your own installation.
