On Christmas Eve I have decided to bring you two delightful, completely unrelated stories from different corners of the United States.
First, from our very own Detroit Zoo the Free Press brings us the story of Amani (Swahili for Peace) the aardvark who was born on December 8th. The darling “earth pig,” which is what aardvark means in Afrikaans, is growing rapidly and will soon grow to 90 to 145 lbs.Â Of the newborn Director of Conservation and Animal Welfare at the Zoo stated: â€œThis baby can only be described as hideously cute.”
More holiday spirit after the jump… (more…)
It gives me great pleasure and also great sadness to inform you that we will have no need for expulsion proceedings in the Senate.Â Senator Ted “I’m crazy as fuck” Stevens has conceded his bid for reelection to Anchorage mayor, Mark Begich.Â Begich will be the only member of the upcoming senate not to have a college degree.Â With that being said, he also isn’t a convicted felon.Â Now, talk amongst yourselves.Â CNN
The Alaska Board of Elections is now reporting that Democrat Mark Begich is leading Republican Ted Stevens for the Alaskan Senate seat by 814 votes!! As of Nov. 5, Begich was down by more that 3,000 votes, but has since caught up and surpassed Stevens due to the large number of absentee ballots cast, a majority of which in favor of Begich. AND! it only gets better from here! FiveThirtyEight‘sÂ Sean Quinn writes:
All I can say is, “YAY!! Thank God!!” Now it looks like Sarah Palin can’t sneak her way into the Senate!
