    Sarah Palin will swoop into Iowa and New Hampshire to speak at tea party rallies this Labor Day weekend, whipping up talk she will announce her candidacy for president. After all, this coming Saturday will mark the third anniversary of her acceptance speech for vice president at the Republican National Convention – a speech which established her as both a conservative icon and a magnet for criticism. Her supporters are certainly encouraging talk she will be a 2012 candidate. Peter Singleton, her Iowa political organizer, told National Review’s Robert Costa last month: “I believe she will run. Labor Day will...

    PLUMSTEAD - Sarah Palin wasted no time Tuesday night teasing her audience of supporters at a fund-raiser for Plumstead Christian School. After an alumnus of the private school, north of Doylestown in Bucks County, finished an uplifting performance of "God Bless America," she coyly asked him, "Would you like to sing that at an Inauguration?" It was just what the crowd of more than 400 people wanted to hear. For an hour, the audience of students, parents and alumni listened as the former Alaska governor delivered a speech that was part homespun tales from the Palin household and part hardball...

    Former Gov. Tommy Thompson (R) will not challenge Sen. Russ Feingold (D) for re-election this year, reports a Wisconsin media outlet. The Web site of Milwaukee radio station WTMJ said Wednesday morning that an unnamed source "who is close with Thompson's family" said "he believes Thompson's decision is not to run." Though Thompson is pushing back against the report, telling the Associated Press: "The only person who knows what I'm going to do is myself and I don't know what I'm going to do," a GOP source tells CQ Politics that Thompson will not run. Thompson, who served as governor...

    Journalists across the nation, moved by the plight of a troubled Muslim psychiatrist whose "understandable emotional turmoil" broke out in gunfire last week at Fort Hood, Texas, will hold a major fundraising event in the coming weeks in honor of the accused shooter, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan. News coverage of the tragedy sparked reporters and anchors in the mainstream media to "reach out to Hasan in love and brotherhood because his righteous indignation at the illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan led him to express his outrage in the only avenue open to a non-journalist," according to an unnamed organizer...

    Thompson tells Allen decision on presidential race coming soon Associated Press - August 22, 2007 11:25 AM ET RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Fred Thompson said on a Richmond radio station today that he's getting very close to announcing whether he will run for president. The former Tennessee senator and "Law and Order" actor made his comments on a show guest-hosted by another former Republican senator, Virginia's George Allen, on WRVA. Thompson said everybody seems to be announcing a lot earlier than normal, but he's operating on a more traditional time frame. He says the law allows potential candidates to take...

    LONDON: Overweight people are often bullied and discriminated against because ancient fears that fat humans may be diseased causes their thinner counterparts to dislike them, say scientists. In a study, reported in the journal Evolution and Human Behaviour, the researchers have found that the mere sight of someone who is overweight can trigger feelings of disgust and nausea similar to encountering rotten food. Since bacteria and viruses are invisible, human brains have evolved to react to outward signs of disease like rashes and wounds, and these signs also include excessive body fat, suggests the study. "Antipathy towards obese people is...

    A Brooklyn law student who shed her briefs for a Playboy TV series may have to kiss off her career after the sexy video made its way into e-mail in-boxes all over the city. Adriana Dominguez - a third-year student at Brooklyn Law School - happily strips naked, gets spanked and holds gavels up to her bare breasts in the provocative clip. "I wanted to do something a little crazy before I graduate and do become a lawyer ... do something kind of out of character," Dominguez said with a grin as she posed for photographer Andrew Einhorn inside his...

    PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) -- Yavapai Sheriff's detectives arrested four men on theft, fraud and other charges after one of them allegedly tried to enroll a 29-year-old convicted sex offender in a Chino Valley school. Sheriff's office spokeswoman Susan Quayle says school officials called police when 61-year old Lonnie Stiffler used fake documents to try to enroll his 12-year-old grandson. Detectives learned the grandson was, in fact, 29-year-old Neil Rodreick, a convicted sex offender from Oklahoma. Quayle says neither Stiffler nor his roommate, 43-year old Robert Snow, knew that Rodreick was an adult. Authorities say the two men met Rodreick two...

    Bush Caves - Calls Nat'l Guard to Border. Calls Minuteman "Heroes" In a stunning reversal of policy, President George W.

    In his new book "Rewriting History," longtime aide to Bill and Hillary Clinton, Dick Morris reveals that he's guarded a secret about the Whitewater scandal for nearly a decade that could have led to Clinton's removal from office. "What I was not talking about and have not for eight years is an incident that took place in 1996," he told Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes" on Tuesday. Morris alleged that Clinton improperly influenced U.S. District Court Judge Henry Woods to dismiss Whitewater charges against then-Arkansas Gov. Jim Guy Tucker, who had threatened to go public about Hillary's involvement in...

    OAKLAND, Calif. -- They aren't the Buffalo Bills, OK? Not the Minnesota Vikings, or the Toronto Maple Leafs, either. Truth is, the closest you can come is to say the Oakland Athletics are a smaller, cheaper, occasionally cuddlier version of the Atlanta Braves. And as far as that goes, even the Braves won once. But history comes a lot faster than it used to, and many more words will be devoted to the A's latest first-round thoracotomy than to, say, vaudeville, or the Crusades, or the Iron Age. Miguel Tejada, right, and the A's haven't advanced past the Division Series...
