    Town fears that huge swelling beached blue whale carcass ‘might explode’ About one week ago, the carcass of a dead blue whale washed ashore in Trout River, Newfoundland, Canada. As reported by the BBC, residents now fear that the 25-meter-long (over 82-foot-long) decomposing whale, which is filling and expanding with methane gas, could explode. The BBC notes that a sperm whale carcass that landed on the shores of the Faroe Islands exploded as a biologist tried to perform a dissection. Blue whales are the largest known animals in the world, and the carcass of the beached Trout River blue whale...

    Anthony Weiner’s online paramour took time out from her “15 Minutes of Fame” tour to cool off on a Santa Monica beach — looking more like a frumpy schoolmarm than sultry sext kitten. Sydney Leathers — who sent Weiner a racy, bun-baring shot of herself in a pink thong during their 6-month dalliance — sported this unflattering two-piece halter bathing suit with high-waisted, cover-it-all-up bottoms late last week.
  • Meghan McCain: Hillary Clinton "Is A Woman Who Kicks Ass In Politics" (BARF ALERT)

    11/28/2011 4:44:25 PM PST · by rabscuttle385 · 43 replies · 1+ views
    Meghan McCain, daughter of Sen. John McCain, expresses her excitement over a potential Obama/Hillary ticket: "The problems that he [Obama] is having with women would automatically be solved. She's a statesman. I like Hillary Clinton, even though I am a Republican, just simply for the fact that she's a woman that kicks ass in politics."

    (snip) “I think he’s delusional,” McCain said. “And him calling me clueless I think is so sexist and disgusting and lame and a really offhanded remark … that he’s making towards me. And I think it’s ridiculous. Any polls that he’s reading, if you were seriously running for president, you wouldn’t be taking vacations to Greece during the middle of your campaign trail. I think he has a lot of other issues that all of us are very well aware of. And I would bet my career he’s not going to be our next nominee.” (snip)

    PMSNBC ^ | 11-01-2011 | Montag813
    That's right. The "Republican take" was none other than uber-ditz Meghan McCain. TOTALLY! Among her pearls of wisdom: "Mitt Romney is, like, the most experienced candidate. He will be the nominee, and it's time that people learned to just deal with it." "We are going through each nominee one at a time like when you're...speed dating". "Herman Cain has never held public office before, and I find that, like, so disturbing". "Romney...Mitt..Romney...the best...Romney...." (ok I skipped the rest because I couldn't take it)

    (snip) McCain, who identified herself early in the program as heterosexual, spoke candidly about her own support for a battery of LGBTQ issues on stage...at one point, McCain even indicted pro-Don't Ask, Don't Tell politicians as being "dangerously out of touch.""I support equality," she said. "You can't call this country free if people are being discriminated against. "I'm scared by people who don't evolve," said McCain later on, frustrated by the static nature of conservative politics. The blogger, whose views contradict much of the religious rights' stance on homosexuality, suffered extreme backlash from news pundits throughout her father's campaign. (snip)

    Meghan McCain said Sunday that she is prepared to “kick Obama’s ass the next election.” Speaking at the Miami Book Fair International to promote her book, “Dirty Sexy Politics,” the daughter of Sen. John McCain expressed an interest in working as a Republican “strategist.” “I've already had people interested in me working, which is unbelievably flattering,” McCain said. “I want to go out and do it all over again with somebody else -- I want to go get a Republican elected. I want to kick Obama’s ass the next election and get a Republican elected.” She added that she will...

    When Meghan McCain tweeted the link to her newest Daily Beast "article" on Twitter Tuesday night, my first thought was "How the hell did I get unblocked by her? Why am I seeing this tweet?" This was disconcerting to say the least. I was afraid that I may have failed to pay my Vast Right Wing Conspiracy dues or that the H8R-Ade I had been drinking had expired and lost its strength. My second thought, upon reading the title, My Palin Problem, was "Oh, dear. This is going to be hilarious." I was right. The very first paragraph alone divulges...

    cnn ^ | A. Pawlowski,
    When film director Kevin Smith was recently kicked off a flight because of his size, he focused his anger on Southwest, but the incident put the spotlight on all airlines and their heavy passenger policies. Smith said that he had no trouble buckling his seat belt and lowering his armrests on the flight Saturday and that his neighbors didn't complain about him invading their space. He said he suspected he may have been bumped by an airline employee who did not like his films. Southwest has apologized to Smith -- twice -- but said he was not singled out to...

    (As Prepared for Delivery) July 17, 2007 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Mr. President, these are very difficult days in our history. The war in Iraq continues to impose an unacceptably heavy toll on our military, their families, our national security, and our ability to lead the world. I intend to vote for the Levin-Reed amendment, and I urge the Senate to approve it. America is paying an enormous cost for a war we never should have fought, and it’s time to bring it to an end. The war has divided us here at home, and it has made us more isolated...

    (WCCO) Grantsburg, Wis. Crews rescued a man from the St. Croix River at Fox Landing, near Grantsburg, Wis. after he spent 12 hours stuck in the water. Authorities said the man's weight was a mitigating factor in his delayed rescue. At about 8:15 p.m. Monday, authorities received a call of someone with a medical condition needing assistance. According to the Pine County Sheriff's Office, a group had gone tubing on the river when the tube of a man weighing at least 500 pounds went flat about two miles south of Fox Landing. After attempted to get out of the water...

    Here are some post-election comments from Michael F. Moore: THEY say that in life you get what you deserve. Well, today America has deservedly got a lawless cowboy to lead them further into carnage and isolation and the unreserved contempt of most of the rest of the world. This once-great country has pulled up its drawbridge for another four years and stuck a finger up to the billions of us forced to share the same air. And in doing so, it has shown itself to be a fearful, backward-looking and very small nation. This should have been the day when...

    <p>May 18, 2004 -- CANNES, France - President Bush need not lose any sleep over Michael Moore's much-hyped "Fahrenheit 9/11," which turns out to be a wet firecracker. Moore's virulent feature-length attack on Bush, which premiered yesterday to a 20-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival, falls far short of delivering on the filmmaker's extravagant promises of election-swinging revelations.</p>

    My husband and I were watching Scarborough Country last Friday (November 14) night, and they were discussing Rush Limbaugh's return. The guests for the segment were Edwin Meese, David Horowitz and Ed Schultz (the liberal Rush, yeah right).David Horowitz brought up Ted Kennedy and his little incident with DUI and Mary Jo, and Schultz blew it off as being in a different era. WHAT? An era when the death of some woman was never to be looked at, no matter how suspicious, because of the accused's name? The link to the show transcipt is here. and it is about 7...
