The Weekend Desk Report

Weekend Desk editor Natasha Julius remains on assignment in India. Stephanie Goldberg once again fills in with her Five Dumbest Ideas of the Week.

This was a week for the books. We laughed, we cried, we danced in the streets and some of us even had sex with strangers just to get a ticket to Obamafest. (Now there's a story to tell the grandchildren.) But let's not forget the little people.

1. Here's to the unnamed Republican Party lawyer who labored on law review and undoubtedly kissed major ass all for the day when he could fly to Alaska to play Repo Man for the remnants of Sarah Palin's designer wardrobe. Good luck and have a mooseburger for me.

2. And on a related note: Who's up for The Wasilla Hillbillies as a Bravo reality show? In the first episode, the family Palin discovers bubbling crude under the snowmobile shed and ditches Alaska to buy a nifty McMansion in a gated Orange County community. Clad in cashmere jogging suits, they gather round the breakfast nook, planning Bristol's wedding to Levi "Jethro" Johnston. Special appearances by Jon Voight and Patti Heaton.

3. "Don't mess with me or I'll cut ya." These words were recently said by:

A) Barney the Scottish terrier to Reuters correspondent Jon Decker
B) Rahm Emanuel to a little old lady who edged him out for a bus seat.
C) Joy Behar to Elizabeth Hasselbeck
D) All of the above

4. Narciso Rodriguez, what were you thinking when you sold Michelle Obama on that horrid red-and-black knit dress that made her hips look broad as a barn? And that's not just me saying that. No soup for you, you Republican saboteur.

5. It must suck to be Sen. Mitch McConnell, whose sex life was deemed to be so uninteresting that Kentucky voters ignored a campaign to out him and re-elected him anyway. Now McConnell is courting Joe Lieberman to become a member of the Republican Party. Joe Lieberman, Joe the Plumber, hey, what's the difference?
