I'm No Superman Open Thread

Just wanted to let everyone know: I've delayed my vacation until next week, for a bunch of reasons:

1. It's kind of stupid to go on vacation during what I imagine will be the climax of the shutdown showdown. (Though it now appears that may go on longer.)

2. I didn't actually get guest bloggers to cover for me. I just sort of said "Bye!" and told the cobloggers "JUST HANDLE IT!!" Like a Boss. Problem is, I'm not their boss. So I can't say boss-like things like "just handle it."

So I have to contact some guest bloggers and see if they'll pitch in.

3. Yesterday was like a holiday. I'm not going on vacation during a short week. No way. I'm not a sucker.

4. I don't feel all that well so it seems stupid to go on vacation this week.

So no, I'm not working on vacation; I'm doing crappy work during a work week.

In news, the credit agency Fitch has put the US on "negative" outlook, meaning they expect a downward revision in our credit rating. So, like that helps Obama and stuff.

That big game-changing NBC poll that panicked the hell out of the GOP? Looks like a major outlier.

Meanwhile, another Deal could be in the works.

And now, an Otter and Child.

An otter is a type of weasel. (Google It.)

Below, a cool short celebrating Superman's 75th anniversary, with nods to all the different eras and incarnations of the Man of Steel. Including the Super Friends, and including the Super Pets.

Thanks to @drewmtips, @gabrielmalor and @rdbrewer4.
