A lot of balloons might be popping for Uncle Ted today. It is November 18th, Ted Stevens' 85th birthday.
Meanwhile, today and tomorrow might pop whatever balloons are left in Ted's political future, both in Alaska and in Washington, DC.
Happy 85th Birthday, Sen. Stevens. May your 86th birthday find you healthy, retired and free!
