O'Donnell's lesbian sister believed in Wicca and the "starfish" Tea Partiers might have a plan.

Fallows and Bob Wright offered insight into Marty's hypocrisy; and Kinsley proposed the price for the Boomers' legacy in America. Americans hated the stimulus because it trickled in; Cash for Clunkers was a clunker, and our ability to feel rich depended on where we live.
