We love inside jokes, we hate being made to feel like idiots. So we normally find the Note's 150 percent-more-clever-than-you references irritating. Today, however, we give them mad props: The whole point of blind items is that they should be easy to figure out, and today's Note about a bilious "Senator X" could be solved by a single Googling monkey. Take your hints:
• He has referred to himself as being "frank"
• He has referred to himself as being "serious"
• He has referred to himself as being "not being facetious"
• He is a Senator who will be participating in confirmation hearings today
