While you were roasting weinies

The madman in pajamas tested a nuke. PTL that didn't interfere with Obama's golf game.

Oh, and here's a bit of fun. This is what Obama's saying at Democratc fundraising events now-a-days:

And finally, we need these four leaders to help us restore fiscal discipline in Washington so we don't leave our children and grandchildren with a mountain of debt. These are some of the leaders in trying to get Washington to take those responsibilities seriously. Already, my administration has identified more than 100 government programs that we can reduce or eliminate, save $17 billion next year alone. We're going line by line through the budget, page by page, looking for even more cuts.

I've personally asked the leadership in Congress to reinstate the pay-as-you-go rule that we followed during the 1990s, a rule that will help start -- (applause) -- a rule that helped us start this new century with a $236 billion surplus. You remember that? The idea is very simple: You don't spend what you don't have. If you want to spend, you need to find someplace else to cut. That's the rule that families across this country follow every single day -- and there's no reason why their government shouldn't do the same.

I know, it's a riot!

Today he's in Vegas (yes, the same place corporate fat cats aren't supposed to go) to appear at a fundraiser for Harry Reid.
