Dancing Queen from the movie Mamma Mia

Yes, I'm a big dork as well as a "woman of a certain age" and I went to see Mamma Mia this weekend. I'm old enough to remember when ABBA was the biggest thing out of the Eurovision contest and I saw the musical a few years ago as well. Definitely not geared for everyone, but it was very fun for my niece, my young'uns and me (my husband won't admit he liked it, but I saw a smile on his face a couple of times). However, as much as I enjoyed myself, I have to admit Pierce Brosnan's singing is highly cringeworthy (I won't lie, they clearly didn't audition any of the cast for their singing ability).

But I was inspired to pick this video by Nancy Pelosi's appearance ABC's Meet the Press, because I suspect there's gonna be a whole lot of dancing going on there. She's going to be promoting her book, Know Your Power: A Message To America's Daughters, while conveniently not exercising ANY of her Constitutionally-mandated powers herself. And the omnipresent Holy Joe Lieberman and Huckleberry Graham will be appearing on Meet the Press and FOXNews Sunday, respectively. I'll refrain from humming "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme" in honor of them. Would that this election turn into their personal Waterloo.

Glassman, undersecretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs; Laura Tyson, adviser to Barack Obama; Nancy Pfotenhauer, adviser to McCain.

"Fox News Sunday" - Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and former Sen. Tom Daschle, D-S.D.; Ashley Judd, actress.

Would Congressional Democrats work with a President McCain? Meter Questions: Would Obama be able to cut deals with Republicans in Congress?

So other than my terrible taste in movies, what's catching your eye this morning?
