Welcome to the short workweek, or, as the Campaigner-in-Chief calls it, a week.

President Barack Obama sounded a nostalgic personal note Sunday night and offered a rare self-assessment while criticizing congressional Republicans as an "impediment" to governing during the start of a West Coast fundraising tour for the Democratic Party.

Obama told donors the sight of Mt. Rainier illuminated by a setting sun was particularly special because it reminded him of his mother, who attended high school in the Seattle area. "I feel the spirit of my mom," he said.

He also attempted to contrast himself with Republicans who control the House of Representatives, saying they are "more focused on positioning themselves for the next election."

"I'm not a particularly ideological person," he said, adding he still is passionate about giving people a fair shake, about the environment, and working for peace and national security. "But I'm pretty pragmatic about how we get there."

Hahahahaha. Whatever, dude.

And ICYMI, Team Juicebox provided some hilarious entertainment over the weekend. Part 1. Part 2.

*Programming Note* We want your comments, questions, advice, jokes, japes, and jackfoolery for this weeks' podcast. This is a holiday-week opportunity only, so if you're really dying to get something out of the cobs, this is your moment. Send your question/comment/request for advice/whatever to andy+asktheblog AT aoshq DOT com, and, provided it's not utter lunacy, there's a good chance we'll read it and either answer it or (more likely) mock it on the podcast. You know you want to.
