Just because it’s the day after Thanksgiving doesn’t mean you’re getting out of a p-Op quiz. While the week wasn’t nearly as head-spinning as the previous week, it was interesting. Folks were still talking about alleged “gifts” from President Obama to those who voted for him. They were still trampling U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice over Benghazi. They couldn’t get enough of the Broadwell-Petraeus-Kelley shenanigans. We’re in week three of this stuff. And a couple of turkeys got pardoned. No, I’m not talking about Rod Blagojevich.
