The first of the Elvis potato heads will be released for Elvis Tribute Week in August. The toy will be in a jumpsuit. A second version ó with the likeness dressed in black leather ó will be on the market for Christmas...
  • Congressman Hank Johnson (D): If Guam gets too overpopulated, it might tip over!! (Video)

    And this is the mentality of our lawmakers representing us? No wonder this country is in shambles. These are the brilliant people regulating our industry folks. This is a must see video of what our politicians are lacking in Washington, and that's common sense and education. I am at a loss for words for this fine displacement of intellect. Watch the video, especially at the 1:20 mark:

    Joe Biden's pretty happy with himself for avoiding any major gaffes recently. "You know, I'm sort of a gaffe-free zone right now, you know," he told CNN's Ed Henry in an interview airing today. Biden's been particularly careful to avoid verbal slips recently. After almost taking a shot at Dick Cheney in a recent interview with reporters, Biden caught himself and backtraked. "Yeah, yeah, I know. I can see the headline now," he said, according to a pool report. "Iím getting better, guys. Iím getting a little bit better, you know what I mean?" Biden's foot-in-mouth disease has caused Obama...

    FAA says low-flying plane over Staten Island is 'pre-planned' flight to take photos by Staten Island Advance Monday April 27, 2009, 10:03 AM A plane, that appears to be a commercial jet tailed by fighter jets, is a "pre-planned" military flight taking photos of the Statue of Liberty, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. Reports indicate it may be Air Force One. "It is pre-planned, pre-coordinated with everyone involved," said FAA spokesman Jim Peters. "It's a military flight over New York to take photos." Peters, who stressed it is not an emergency, said the flight is circling the Statue of...

    U.S. President Barack Obama says he is determined to halt piracy in the shipping lanes off the coast of Somalia. Mr. Obama spoke one day after the dramatic rescue of an American cargo ship captain who had been held hostage by the pirates since last week.

  • Obama: Fighting 'rise of privacy' (piracy) (Yet another Obama gaffe)

    President Barack Obama is taking a stand against "the rise of privacy'' in the Indian Ocean. Say what? The president clearly meant the "rise of piracy,'' but his brief statement on the rescue of the American container ship captain held hostage by Somalian pirates came so quickly today that he didn't stop to correct himself. He did note, however, that those "who commit acts of piracy'' must be "held accountable'' for the crime.... (snip) We'll hand one thing to the White House's stenographers, however. Whenever former President George W. Bush tripped over his own tongue, which happened with some frequency,...
  • Triumph of the Geeks and Tough Guys (Tina Brown compares Obama to Paris Hilton)

    Triumph of the Geeks and Tough Guys by Tina Brown Obama is the only person walking around with a big smile on his face. That onset of wild laughter on 60 Minutes about how humorous it is that no one in America, I mean no one, wants a bailout for the auto companies was one of the more surreal presidential performances lately. Why has Obama suddenly turned into the Paris Hilton of teachable moments? We realize heís just trying to shore up his poll ratings so he can distance himself from Pelosiís pitchfork mob, but a 60 Minutes sitdown right...
  • Chavez loses critical votes in Venezuela election

    Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has suffered a setback in regional elections, losing several key votes. While Mr Chavez's broad coalition managed to hold on to most of the regional governors' positions, he did lose the most critical votes including the mayor of Caracas and the governorships of the country's two most populous states. The mayor's job is often referred to as the second most important position in Venezuela. While Mr Chavez's popularity remains high, he has never recovered from the surprising loss last year of his sweeping constitutional reforms. He maintains he still wants to amend the country's constitution in...

    Plants on Earth are green because of chlorophyll, which harnesses the energy of the sun to make sugars for metabolism. But our plants aren't completely efficient -- they waste a little bit of light. "Ideally, what you want is a black molecule that absorbs all of the light," Blankenship said... They also are looking into the "red edge" effect. Seen at 700 nanometers out, beyond the limit of normal human vision, this reflectance spectrum is a signature of the fact that there is very intense chlorophyll absorption going on... "When you consider another world you've got to find that life...

  • Kerry, Dean ahead in latest poll (Yawn!)

    DURHAM - John Kerry and Howard Dean lead in a New Hampshire poll that indicates no presidential candidate has won the hearts of likely Democratic primary voters. Sen. Kerry of Massachusetts was at 18 percent and former Vermont Gov. Dean was at 16 percent in the Granite State poll conducted by the University of New Hampshire and released Monday. Almost a third of those surveyed said they remain undecided, while 14 percent said they would prefer New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, who has said she does not plan to run for president in 2004. And in more bad news...
