    Adam Carolla wants to set the record straight. The broadcaster who once boastfully told "Loveline" listeners he was "literally" a millionaire isn't rich. He's successful. There's a difference, and it's one lost in the current debate over Democrats trying to increase taxes on the wealthiest Americans. Carolla shared his thoughts on the matter with "The O'Reilly Factor" viewers last night.

    Initially hailed as a solution to the biggest question in computer science, the latest attempt to prove P ≠ NP – otherwise known as the "P vs NP" problem – seems to be running into trouble. Two prominent computer scientists have pointed out potentially "fatal flaws" in the draft proof by Vinay Deolalikar of Hewlett-Packard Labs in Palo Alto, California. Since the 100-page proof exploded onto the internet a week ago, mathematicians and computer scientists have been racing to make sense of it. The problem concerns the speed at which a computer can accomplish a task such as factorising a...

O'Reilly explains "the John Adams Project is secretly photographing CIA agents and showing the pictures to terror suspects at Guantanamo Bay." Ginsberg said "CIA agents put a lot of people in danger, they put this country in danger, they put American Soldiers in danger." After trying to grab the microphone away from Bank's hands she said "You are making me feel threatened, get out of my face!" (Watch Video)

    WASHINGTON - The White House said Thursday that China's crackdown in Tibet is not cause for President Bush to cancel his attendance at the Beijing Olympics. Presidential spokeswoman Dana Perino Bush's position is that "this should be about the athletes and not necessarily about politics." She said that Bush, in accepting the invitation last year from Chinese President Hu Jintao to attend the Olympics, told him that the games would "shine a spotlight on all things Chinese." "That's not necessarily a bad thing," Perino added. Bush agreed to go to the Olympics during a meeting with Hu in Australia last...

    The Republicans will head into a tough primary fight in Michigan this week, with all of the candidates vying for an important win before the South Carolina vote on the 22nd. The Democrats, however, will focus on Nevada, since the Michigan primary has been disqualified by the DNC for violating the party's rules by moving its primary up before February 5th. Only Hillary Clinton appears on the ballot among the main contenders, leaving Democrats the option of skipping their side of the ticket and focusing in on the Republicans. The Democrats don't want that, and have organized an effort --...

Thousands of Iowans have flocked to his office, and have 1,385 signed up as volunteers to score tickets to see the talk show diva and magazine queen. The campaign declines to say how many tickets have been distributed for two events Saturday in Iowa but says no one will be turned away from the unique opportunity to attract new voters.

    Is President Bush done or can he make a comeback? A new Gallup poll has the president's job approval rating at just 31 percent, the lowest ever for him. Only 52 percent of conservatives approve of the job Mr. Bush is doing and that's his base. Only four presidents have scored lower approval ratings since the Gallup poll began tabulating Oval Office performance: Truman, Nixon, Carter and Bush the elder. The question now is: Can Bush the younger regain the confidence of the American people? Now there's no clear answer to that question. But one thing is certain: Mr. Bush...

A portion of that feature reads, "So long as their big flamboyant lie remains an established fact in the public's mind, President Bush will be seen as justified in taking for himself the power to make war on his whim." Does that mean Jihad Unspun's editors feel some ideological kinship with both Gore and some obscure writer who suggests nations should arm themselves with nuclear weapons? I cannot...

Code Pink is the organization that has been holding anti-troop demonstrations outside Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington, D.C. every week, countered by a large turnout from the DC Chapter of Free Republic (God bless FR.) There are plenty of legitimate antiwar organizations whose spokepersons O'Reilly could have put on the Factor. Instead, he chose to put on the founder of Code Pink, which gave thousands of dollars to the terrorists in...

    For the first time in Santa Clara County, the coroner's office has listed the use of Tasers by police officers as one of the factors causing a person's death. The main cause of Jose Angel Rios' death late last year was heart failure during his cocaine-fueled battle against San Jose police officers, according to an autopsy obtained Friday by the Mercury News. The 38-year-old's obesity and heart disease caused by cocaine use were also listed as causes. The manner of death -- accidental, homicide, suicide, etc. -- was ``undetermined.'' Dr. Christopher Happy also concluded a ``contributory cause of death'' was...

When he got the news through the earpiece he arched his eyebrows and seemed quite surprised at this development. Might be worth watching...

    SACRAMENTO (AP) - Air regulators said Monday that dairies are the number one source of smog-producing pollution in the San Joaquin Valley, producing more than even cars and light trucks. In a much-disputed report released Monday, the San Joaquin Valley Unified Air Pollution Control District determined that a cow annually emits 19.3 pounds of volatile organic compounds, the gases that contribute to smog. That's 50 percent more than currently thought. At that new rate, dairies in the San Joaquin Valley produce more than 50 tons of VOCs a day, exceeding the amount released by cars and light trucks in the...

    Maybe it's just me. Perhaps I'm overly sensitive. But when I wish a store clerk "Merry Christmas!" they often appear stunned and flummoxed for a moment, as if I've just blabbed the plans for the underground's sabotage of the train tracks in front of the secret police. I've said something highly inappropriate for the public square, and I almost expect a security guard to take me aside on the way out. He'll lead me to a small room. He has no enthusiasm for this; it's the end of his shift, and he's done this a dozen times already today. But...

    COLUMBUS, OHIO As President Bush and Sen. John Kerry hurtle into the final two days of the presidential race, the campaign has in some ways already moved out of their hands - and into the hands of people like Regina Weinhardt. Ms. Weinhardt, a stay-at-home mother of three in Thornbury Township, Pa., spent much of the weekend at the Hilltop Pub, a temporary headquarters for the Republican Party's get-out-the-vote drive in Delaware County, dialing up likely Bush voters and reading from a script reminding them to vote.

    After talking with some left-wing friends this weekend, I realized now more than ever that the question of whether to vote for Bush or Kerry truly boils down to another question, A war for our lives, or a nuisance to our lifestyle? The later question was asked on Friday by eminent historian Victor David Hanson. He answers it with honesty and erudition, but leaves out a very important point: the fear factor. Hanson correctly identifies Kerry et als penchant for wanting to solve our foreign policy disputes through diplomatic bureaucracy ad nauseum -- e.g., the United Nations. He hints at...

Instead, the "Arnold factor" in this campaign may come down to political body language.
