Carcieri's 15 Minutes

Yesterday, we were too busy hiding under a rock (out of embarrassment) to post a link to this — Governor Carcieri’s skewering by Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert for his views on burial rights for gay partners. But it’s still good for a laugh (or cry) this a.m. The title of the piece — "Skeletons in the Closet" — is brilliant and so is the tag line: "How is the governor of Rhode Island supposed to rest in peace knowing that a couple of plots over two dudes are being gay dead?"

Good question. Another good question — where is Keith Olbermann in all this? Reads like perfect fodder for his "Worst Persons in the World" nightly segment. Then we could really be proud.
