Obama to Take Remakes

Ah, the perils of iPhone autocorrect. From Martha’s Vineyard, a pool report today by Katie Zezima of the Washington Post: President Obama just completed a statement on the situation in Iraq (report to come very shortly).

Kerry To Face Down ISIS from Pink Girl’s Bike

This is from a few days ago, but somehow I missed it. Wanted to make sure you didn’t. Looks like he’s in Nantucket, where he vacations. Here’s the other half of our team, which is bravely taking on Hamas, Isis, Putin, China, and anybody else that gets in their way. Don’t mess with these guys. They’re not afraid to break a nail. H/T Weasel Zippers.
