You have a guy like this at work: he barely knows your name, condescends to you in meetings, but you know he can't add a column of numbers in Excel.  Then when he needs something, why, he's your best bud and how about that football game last night?  Can you help me make a pie chart?  Yeah, yeah, just put my name there, pal.

As White House reporter Keith Koffler notes, so much about politics is fostering relationships, and that's why it's all crashing down on this White House: "Obama's chickens are coming home to roost."

It'll be pretty funny if the cheese-eating French take the lead while the freedom fries Congress sits this one out.

"When asked this morning if the U.S. has any pledges of military support for strikes in Syria, White House chief of staff Denis McDonough emphasized that the G20 and other nations have made supportive condemnations of the Syrian government’s actions, but repeatedly pressed by CNN’s Candy Crowley, provided no examples of countries that have endorsed or will provide personnel or equipment for a military intervention."

Know what's the most surprising part of this story? "Repeatedly pressed by CNN's Candy Crowley."
