The week that was

A review of the week’s top stories.

Pale amber sunlight falls across
The reddening October trees,
That hardly sway before a breeze
As soft as summer: summer’s loss
Seems little, dear! on days like these.

– Autumnal, Ernest Downson

It‚??s the scariest time in American history but somehow the country survived the scariest day of the year. Kathleen Sebelius¬†celebrated Halloween early by dressing up as Lois Lerner. She testified at her hearing and displayed the same level of corrupt, arrogant incompetence¬†as her muse. The hair, specs, and blas√© expression were all pretty similar, too. Obama has a type.

Ken Cuccinelli is staging a comeback of epic proportions in Virginia, where he is running for governor against Democrat challenger¬†Terry McAuliffe, the Clintons‚?? sidekick. Fellow conservatives balked at Cuccinelli from the start, saying he is an ‚??ideologue.‚?Ě Turns out voters might have ideals, too.

Obama‚??s approval rating this week dipped to its¬†lowest yet. Polls indicate that just 42 percent of Americans approve of the job the president is doing. 99 percent of the 42 percent report that they approve of the way Obamacare is not taking effect.

The National Football League is looking to distance itself from the Redskins’ name SNAFU by appealing to a different minority‚??¬†women. According to reports, the NFL has made a ‚??concerted effort over the past two years to market the game and apparel‚?Ě to females. The Washington Redskins will have a new name, ‚??The Washington Hopeless Romantics,‚?Ě and mascot, Tom Brady, by next season.

Oh and the Boston¬†Red Sox won the World Series but the team’s approval rating in the eyes of the country is only marginally better than Obama‚??s.
