    ...Butt speaking of ick factors, did you get the latest email from Howdy Messina? I hate to see them come in, because everyone around here is required to fill them out or we get docked a half days pay. The latest was really, really long, because the big brains are getting a little panicky and are hustling around to figure out what happened to all the Obots out there. Last time around all they had to do was put out word that they needed money and boots on the ground, and the bots complied. Now its like pulling ticks off...

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. --Does a fork or dinner knife pose an unacceptable danger to President Barack Obama? One wouldnt think so, given the hundreds of lunches and dinners hes attended ranging from state dinners to political fundraisers to run-of-the-mill stops on the rubber-chicken circuit. However, at one such lunch Friday afternoon, guests heard an unusual announcement that they needed to hand over their silverware for security reasons. Its very important that you use your utensils as soon as possible, National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials board member Raquel Regalado told about 1000 delegates at the groups annual...

    Will President Obama’s Thursday address be the worst speech ever? Kevin Hassett almost thinks so: It might be that this jobs report stimulates the Obama team to drop all the Keynesian nonsense, but I doubt it. Frankly, I expect Obama’s jobs speech to be the worst presidential speech in my lifetime. I don’t know how old Kevin is, but my lifetime stretches back to Jimmy Carter’s “malaise” speech of 1979. The Washington Post‘s David Nakamura remembers it, too: Obama is not Carter. But when asked if there were historical parallels between the high stakes Obama is facing in his...

    Man gets 3-6 years in chicken, fork assaults JACKSON (AP) — An Ypsilanti man will spend at least three years in prison for attacking a woman with 10 pounds of frozen chicken after stabbing his mother with a fork. Jackson County Circuit Judge John McBain on Thursday sentenced Frederick McKaney, 40, to three to six years. McKaney pleaded guilty in October to felonious assault and domestic assault. Prosecutors said McKaney stabbed his mother with a fork at her house and later exchanged words with another woman as he rode a stolen bicycle. They said McKaney hit her in the...

    HILLARY Clinton's campaign overnight predicted a rapid end to the Democratic White House race next month as the press read the last rites to her quest to be the first woman president. With more party elders drifting to Barack Obama's camp and the media declaring the nominating battle all but over, Senator Clinton aides battled back with appeals for voters to be heard and for new donors to come forward. Even as he vowed no surrender from the former first lady, Clinton campaign chairman Terry McAuliffe said party bosses known as "superdelegates" would coalesce behind a candidate once the final...

    "A jury on Friday said Southwest Airlines did not racially discriminate against an overweight passenger when she was asked to buy a second seat on her flight." "The jury deliberated for a little over an hour before finding against Nadine Thompson, who sued Southwest in federal court. She claimed that she was singled out because she is black and that the airlines "customer of size" policy was unfairly applied to her after she boarded a flight at Manchester Airport in June 2003." " Southwests policy states that a "customer of size" is someone who cant sit in a seat without...

    SOMERSET, Pa. (AP) -- A state prison inmate is charged with attempted homicide for allegedly attacking a prison guard with a sharpened plastic eating utensil known as a spork. State police this week charged Steven Cave, 22, who is serving a five- to 10-year sentence for robbery, for the Dec. 18 attack at the State Correctional Institution-Somerset. A corrections officer told police the trouble began when Cave threw a container of urine at him while he was serving meals in the restricted housing unit where Cave was being held. After the meal, Cave then refused to return his tray and...
