    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Here's Siobhan in Columbia, Mississippi. Hi, welcome, it's great to have you here. It's Open Line Friday and you're next. CALLER: Hi. I'm so happy to finally get through to you. I have one major problem, and that's Barack Obama himself. My problem is, as a black woman, I am embarrassed to be a black-American. My grandmother is 94 years old, and I imagine that her and all of our ancestors that died and fought for what we're supposed to call freedom, this is not what they imagined of the first black president. I mean, Congress is...

    I was born in Colorado in 1977 and lived there until I was 21. I went to a private Christian school from age 5-18 and then studied Computer Science at Colorado State University.I graduated at the height of the .com Bubble in 2000 and could’ve gotten a job at any tech company in the USA. I was offered ridiculous salaries with signing bonuses of luxury cars. Pretty tempting.Something about it all seemed very predictable though. Go to College, get the job, go to work. I had lived in Colorado my entire life and even though I had tried very hard...

    For the first time in my life, I'm embarrassed to be an American. Last weekend, as tens of thousands of Japanese were fighting for their lives after an 8.9 earthquake devastated their nation, our President, after giving a generic "We're with you" statement, remained noticeably absent. Not really absent -- Obama could be found on the golf course Saturday afternoon. As a Japanese nuclear reactor melted down and threatened a catastrophe of biblical proportions, Obama was otherwise engaged Saturday night, having a rollicking good time at Washington D.C.'s annual Gridiron Dinner. Joking with journalists. There is something quite shameful about...

    HARARE (AFP) - Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has urged his supporters to gear up for presidential polls next year, conceding an embarrassing defeat over plans to extend his rule to 2010, analysts said. "I think the view I am getting is that 2008 is preferable," the New Ziana news agency quoted the veteran leader as telling his party's women's league in Harare on Friday. "If we are going to have an election, we must start organising and mobilising support now." Analysts said that by agreeing to elections next year, Mugabe has bowed to opposition from cadres in his Zimbabwe African...

    Sarkozy embarrassed as Algerian thief is arrested By Colin Randall in Paris (Filed: 31/08/2006) An Algerian thief saved from deportation by France's interior minister, Nicolas Sarkozy, made a spectacular return to crime. Police opened fire after a stolen BMW driven by Cherif Bouchelaleg sped towards a checkpoint protecting the prime minister, Dominique de Villepin, at Sallanches, near the borders with Switzerland and Italy. The incident — in which Bouchelaleg, 36, was arrested after jumping from the car and trying to escape on foot — embarrassed Mr Sarkozy, a presidential hopeful who has made much of exerting control over France's borders....

    CHICAGO — Cook County prosecutors say a 29-year-old man traveling with his mother desperately didn't want her to know he'd packed a sexual aid for their trip to Turkey. So he told security it was a bomb, officials said. Madin Azad Amin, 29, of Skokie, was stopped Aug. 16 at O'Hare International Airport after guards found an object in his baggage that resembled a grenade, prosecutors said. When officers asked him to identify it, Amin said it was a bomb, said Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Lorraine Scaduto. He later told officials he'd lied about the item because his mother...

    Michelle Malkin has the update on a 527 organization's attempt (Main Street Individual Fund) to hide the George Soros' $50,000 donation to moderate Republicans (Republican in name only - RINOs) who are essentially against President Bush. This organization funds "Main Street" moderate Republicans. Even if the Google cache is supposedly gone (Soros) you can always try the Internet Archive site to find the cache where it would look like this. Click on any of the three that were archived in 2004 and see that Soros' name is still there. This'll add a bit more legitimacy on what Malkin pointed out...

    I was watching my TiVoed recording of today's inauguration. At about 1:45 CT (2:45 ET), as the dignitaries were leaving Statuary Hall to go to the parade, I noticed Bill and Hillary leaving together. Bill looked over and said something to someone off camera, and the covered his mouth like "Oops!" I put a QuickTime of it and put it on 2 different servers I had access to: Site 1Site 2

    Dems: Embarrassed Yet? Seriously, the embarrassment of being Democrat must be killing you by now. It's not so bad that you went into a collective tantrum when Bush took office after your favorite race baiters insisted that blacks were disenfranchised. Several investigations, run by your minions, concluded that the count in Florida STILL went to Bush and that not one person could be found to have been turned away or intimidated from voting. All that whining seems ages ago. Now, the absurd and insulting antics of the Democrat Party have reached a zenith. Forget, for a moment, that your candidate...

    Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld apologized to the celebrity community for the outcome of the war yesterday at his daily press briefing. "In spite of the joy we feel at what happened in Baghdad this week, it is tinged with sadness as we know that we have embarrassed and disappointed the many members of the celebrity community who wanted us to fail." Rumsfeld went on to say that "it is always difficult" to go against celebrity foreign policy analysts and added that he hoped "Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins, Michael Moore, Edward Norton and the Dixie Chicks will not feel too...
