Mister Blunt and Cranky will be offline for a day or three, as he must have his ticker roto-rootered. So here is an early Friday post for you all, and perhaps a chuckle into the bargain:

There is a group of wits who have decided to parody the “birther” morons. Calling themselves “unicorners”, they demand an investigation into Mitt Romney’s birth certificate, insisting that he is actually a unicorn from a fantasy world.

In this current, oh-so-very-serious political climate, it is good to have a laugh now and again. Back to radical centrism Monday.
