    Donkeys hate coyotes, so much so that they sometimes go postal on intruding 'yotes like this donkey did. South Carolina landowner Steve Hipps has a grass pasture in his backyard that's guarded by a donkey named Buck. Buck used to share the pasture with a female donkey, but when she had babies, Hipps decided to let Buck have it all to himself. "I just wanted something in there to keep the grass eaten down, and I've always loved donkeys," Hipps told Georgia Outdoor News. But Hipps got more than a grass muncher; he got a coyote killing machine. Read the...

    How wild asses became donkeys of the pharaohs 21:00 10 March 2008 news service Andy Coghlan The ancient Egyptian state was built on the backs of tamed wild asses. Ten skeletons excavated from burial sites of the first Egyptian kings are the best evidence yet that modern-day donkeys emerged through domestication of African wild asses. The 5000-year-old bones also provide the earliest indications that asses were used for transport. The skeletons suggest that the smaller frames of today's donkeys hadn't yet evolved. Instead, the bones resemble those of modern-day Nubian and Somali wild asses, which are much larger than...

    Hours after Nancy Pelosi was sworn in as House speaker last week, Democratic Representative Rahm Emanuel held a celebratory reception at Johnny's Half Shell, an upscale Capitol Hill restaurant. Having just overseen his party's victorious campaign as chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (dccc), Emanuel resembled a mafia don who had taken down a rival family and was now receiving visitors (Harold Ickes, Paul Begala, James Carville) to kiss his ring. Filing into the restaurant along with the giddy Democrats, however, was a crowd with markedly longer faces. These were Republicans attending a reception for Arizona Senator Jon Kyl,...

    Dean and Pelosi - The Gums of August By John Burtis Tuesday, May 9, 2006 Rising from the windy plains like twin pillars of fire, braying with the ungodly howls of a brace of hell dogs, the twin slavering Hounds of the Tyndalos have laid bare their party’s plans for usurping governmental power and returning it to the proper and passionate elites. Ayuh, the left’s premier field commanders, Nancy Pelosi, the woman who would be Speaker at the moment of victory, and Howard Dean, who will return to the sodden comfort of his ordure peppered Green Mountain pastures, come victory...

    New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin exploded in frustration last night as his city spun further out of control, saying that Gov. Kathleen Blanco and President Bush need to stop holding "goddman press conferences" and "get their ass[es] on a plane and sit down, the two of them, and figure this out right now." "I don't know whose problem it is. I don't know whether it's the governor's problem. I don't know whether it's the president's problem," Nagin said during an interview with a local New Orleans radio station. "But somebody needs to get their ass on a plane and sit...

    <p>A blogger on the official John Kerry campaign Web site has offered a telling insight into the Kerry campaign in her account (since removed) of a December campaign party.</p> <p>"We had 200 guests eating, drinking, and watching the MoveOn documentary 'Uncovered,' featuring Joseph Wilson and Rand Beers from the Kerry campaign," wrote blogger Pamela Leavey, describing a Kerry event that did not include Mr. Kerry himself. "When Theresa Heinz-Kerry arrived, she handed me a pin that read in the center: 'Asses of Evil' with 'Bush,' 'Cheney,' 'Rumsfeld,' and 'Ashcroft' surrounding it."</p>
