Martha will be wintering in Alderson, West Virginia.

Her photo added to the album of celebrity mug shots, it's off to "bucolic" Camp Cupcake, where ..."Inmates take donated yarn and knit sweaters, hats, scarves and mittens for the Family Refuge Center in Lewisburg", reports Fox. Sounds almost like something she'd have shown how to do on her old TV show.

Democrats find religion.

Saint Bill.

Saint Paul in the manger, and grown with tenure.

I'm taking Paul as merely a saint here, in spite of the manger business.

Kerry's topping Bush at something... "Boo!"

"If Halloween costumes are supposed to be scary, then a lot of people must find Senator Kerry terrifying, because stores online and on the street are sold out of Kerry masks.

"The company that makes the mask, a French manufacturer called Cesar ... has been unable to keep up with demand for the rubbery likenesses of the Democratic nominee.

"A few are available through Internet proprietors that planned far enough ahead and made a big early order, but even they're running out: sold its last five Kerry masks over the weekend, and the company isn't sure it'll be able to get anymore in time for the annual scare fest.

"The owner of the largest costume store in the city, Paul Blum of Abracadabra Superstore, sold his last Kerry mask for $300, a 600% markup on the $24.95 product. He had a second offer for the same amount, but couldn't lay his hands on a mask.

"There was no such shortage of Al Gore or President Bush masks in 2000..."
