We don't know if the continually smiling Joe Biden from last week's debate was the victim of a misplaced Botox shot, was an early sign of imbecility or that he had gas. But we do know that those images should make for some great GOP campaign commercials. ... Former Vice President and “green” shill Al Gore has stopped investing in green technology, reports National Review Online. That's based on a review of Ozone Al's quarterly report to the Securities and Exchange Commission for his Generation Investment (GI) company (and never mind a Washington Post story that touts Mr. Gore's windfalls from past “green” investments). GI has invested virtually nothing in green darlings such as wind, solar and biomass but is big on investments in China. Betting against America, Al? ... The Daily Mail of London reports that Caroll Spinney, the actor behind Sesame Street's Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch, is paid about $314,000 a year. And tax returns for PBS's Sesame Workshop show even higher salaries for other members of the show's puppet brigade. We'd add more details here, but, hey, it's time for another pledge break.
