Two things today, so let’s jump right into it. Jeff Passan talked to Jimmy McMillan, better known as the “Rent is Too Damn High Party” guy, about the American League MVP voting. No, I don’t know why. You should read about it anyway:
“I like Mike. He’s just like me,” McMillan said over the phone Monday afternoon. “He’s not supposed to be there, but he’s there. McMillan look like Santa Claus. He wore sneakers to the debate. I like Michael Young. I really do. I say this to you, Mike: You keep your head up. Verlander got the vote, but I guarantee you, you’re the right guy.”
McMillan called from New York, where he was watching “The Situation Room” and doing push-ups. He criticized Newt Gingrich, outlined the Rent Is Too Damn High Party’s future, paused for a few more push-ups and, when prompted about sports, went into a minute-long dissection of Eli Manning.

That’s how everyone watches the Situation Room, right?
Second thing: Here’s a link to xkcd and the greatest giant infographic you’ll ever see about money, how it stacks up, and where it all goes.
