    People are furious after pictures of a Florida Walmart's 9/11-themed Coke display began to circulate on Twitter Tuesday afternoon. Twitter user Shawn Richard tweeted a picture of the display, which presented Coke Zero in place of Ground Zero and spurred thousands of angry retweets about the beverage company's marketing ploy. “We stopped and stared at it, like oh my God,” Richard said, according to BuzzFeed News. “Nobody seemed to be noticing it. It wasn’t very crowded, and I got the feeling that it had just been assembled. So, we took some pics and went on our way.” Orlando Weekly reports...

    Oh dear! We really wished to keep this one “in the family” butt some blabbermouth had to go and spill the beans about what really went down the night the White House’s first, second and third lines of defense were breached. What next? Is somebody going to claim that “the Intelligence Community” didn’t really “miss the ISIS threat,” somebody else did that?“What do you see Mr. President?” “Uh, uh,uh - it looks like a cat…in a hat. Right?”I sure hope it wasn’t Molsterman who broke rank and let the cat out of the bag, so to speak. “I see no...

    A Georgia woman was mistakenly jailed for one month after cops confused her SpaghettiOs for meth. Ashley Gabrielle Huff was first detained on July 2 after officers in Gainesville found a spoon with a dried substance baked onto it inside her car during a routine traffic stop. The 23-year-old, from Commerce, claimed it was residue from the canned pasta that she liked to eat in the vehicle. Police, however, believed it to be methamphetamine. Huff, who had no criminal history, was sent to Hall County Jail for two days so cops could conduct crime lab tests on the mysterious texture.

    President Barack Obama reacted to the on-camera slaying of photojournalist James Foley for five minutes on Wednesday, telling a global audience that 'when people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.' Minutes later he began a five-hour round at Farm Neck Golf Course on Martha's Vineyard for his seventh visit to the links, so far, during a vacation that began August 9. The decision brought a chorus of condemnation from TV commentators, journalists, conservative partisans and Twitter denizens – and even an unintentional slap from the left-leaning New York Times.

    CINCINNATI, August 20, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Graphic images of aborted babies have been known to induce profound and searing emotions, ranging from tears and trauma, to nausea and revulsion. Some Planned Parenthood supporters decided the images made a perfect backdrop for a self-portrait. The Ohio-based Stand True Pro-Life Outreach protested outside a Planned Parenthood fundraiser on Saturday. “Summer’s Over – What a Drag…” at The Cabaret charged attendees between $10 and $30 to see drag queens strut their stuff. “We protested and witnessed at a Planned Parenthood fundraiser in Cincinnati last Saturday, it was a Drag Queen show,” said Bryan...

    A vomitous human being. This is really the only way to describe one Lizz Winstead, the co-creator of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show. She’s also the author of following tweet that went out to her 75,000 followers not long after a two-mile-wide tornado destroyed the town of Moore, Oklahoma. Among the 51 dead (the death toll as of 11:40 PM EST Monday) are a reported 20 children–many of whom died at an Elementary School in town–along with mothers, fathers, whole families.

  • Weekly Standard: Mitch Daniel's Speech Leak "Reconsidering Run For President"

    01/19/2012 11:11:20 AM PST · by My Favorite Headache · 124 replies · 16+ views
    This morning, the Republican leadership on the Hill announced that Indiana governor Mitch Daniels would deliver the GOP response Tuesday night to President Obama’s State of the Union Address. An hour ago, a dark lady mysteriously appeared at our offices and dropped off an envelope before vanishing down the stairwell. We can’t vouch for the authenticity of the document the envelope contained, of course. But it appears to be a draft of a section—the final section, apparently—of Daniels’s speech text. On the first page of the section is typed, in capital letters, “DO NOT CIRCULATE WITH THE REST OF THE...

    Some are calling a greeting card offensive, but others say the mass-produced card available at Target is just a joke. On the outside, it reads “Heard you’re pregnant”. On the inside, there is just one word … let’s just say it starts with a “w” and rhymes with “bore”.

    EXCERPT ...So just how posh did the Obamas get on their recent trip to the Maine resort town of Mt. Desert Island? Not very posh at all, says disappointed cocktail expert and occasional Atlantic writer Wayne Curtis. Curtis visits the Mt. Desert Island bar Havana, which he says is known for "some of the best drinks and food on the island," about a month after the Obamas had stopped in there for a drink. Curtis says the caipirinha is especially "superb." Naturally, as a cocktail expert, he was "curious" what the Obamas had ordered. So he found out. And it...

I just wanted to let you know that Chris Christie is my favorite governor.” Meh. What’s funny is that about a week ago I got the exact same chain email from a friend with minor differences: it was about a our...

    It's enough to turn your stomach. Or, if you're a New Yorker who lived through the September 11th attacks, give you a serious case of the heebie-jeebies. A new ad purportedly for the World Wildlife Fund features dozens of airplanes converging on lower Manhattan -- featuring the Twin Towers -- with the line "The Tsunami Killed 100 Times More People Than 9/11." The ad was first brought to our attention by Gothamist, but was originally picked up by Adweek.com's AdFreak blog, which reports that the ad is from the Brazilian arm of the WWF. Sure, the 2004 tsunami was a...

    Die Welt aims it teutonic wit at Polish stereotypes From Poland A.M. The German daily Die Welt has published a satire on Poles which does not shy away from stereotypes. One aspect of the satire presented ideas on how to improve Polish-German relations, including: legalization of the shadow economy, not locking new cars, a ban on jokes about potatoes and the proposal of vodka pipeline from Russia through Poland. The most shocking element is a joke about Pope John Paul II. Die Welt writes that Poland would like to dismiss Benedict XVI and replace him with John Paul II as...

    Ignoring widespread condemnation, Iran awarded the top prize in a Holocaust cartoon contest to a Moroccan artist for his depiction of Israel's security wall with a picture of the Auschwitz concentration camp on it. The organizers of the exhibit -- meant as a response to the Danish cartoons of Islam's Prophet Mohammed that enraged many Muslims -- awarded Abdollah Derkaoui $12,000 Wednesday for his work depicting an Israeli crane piling large cement blocks on Israel's security wall and gradually obscuring Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. A picture of Auschwitz appears on the wall. The mosque is Islam's third-holiest site. Iranian officials...

Now, Joel has chosen to capitalize on the death of Steve Irwin to make yet another attack on Bush. If this makes you angry and you would like to contact the editorial board or Mr. Pett himself, here's some contact information. I do not advocate profanity, abuse, or anything that is or may be perceived as illegal. But Mr. Pett and the Herald-Leader deserve to hear from the numbers of us who are outraged about...
