The Five Dumbest Ideas of the Week

1. It's only a rumor but it's a beaut: The New York Observer reports that the Obama transition team is considering Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour for a post as ambassador to England or France. Wintour was the inspiration for the Miranda Priestley character in The Devil Wears Prada and is reportedly on the chopping block at Vogue - leading us to think that it was Wintour who started the rumor.

2. We never tire of Sarah Palin or her improvident interviews in which she blames everyone else for her defeat. This week she told off Katie Couric, noting the CBS anchor "is not the center of everyone's universe." Gov. Palin, we're dedicating this Wilco song to you.

3. We learned this week that Roland Burris has not merely written his own epitaph ("Trail Blazer") but has had it engraved on his mausoleum-in-waiting. We're wondering if he availed himself of the services of epitaph writing coach Lance Hardie, who supplies his services gratis to American military personnel and Death Row inmates. Samples of Hardie's work may be found here.

4. Blago got his inaugural invitation this week. If yours got lost in the mail, you can console yourself by scarfing a pint of Ben & Jerry's "Yes Pecan" ice cream, with an Obama ale chaser.

5. Big News for porn addicts: Sony is bringing back 3-D movies.
