    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: While all this is going, folks, we're not gonna ever, ever forget Barack Obama. We are not going to be distracted. Now, Barack Obama is in Ohio as we speak while McCain is endorsing Romney. (laughing) Who's in charge of this? Who thinks this is good? Who thinks this is helpful? I want to know. There it is: "McCain Endorsing Mitt Romney." What am I missing? Obviously somebody thinks this is well-timed and a great idea. I'd like to know who. At any rate, Obama is out in Ohio talking about the economy. Now, this is pathetic....

    If John McCain during the second debate was, as Mark Steyn famously called him, Yosemite Sam when the dynamite failed to go off, the post-election Barack Obama is shaping up to be Daffy Duck. Like Daffy, he is not suffering from a self-esteem deficit. As he announced early in the campaign, “we are the ones we’ve been waiting for!” When he made his acceptance speech, he was careful to remove anyone who might detract attention from himself, like his running mate and his family. But things often go awry for Daffy, despite his supreme confidence. And Obama got off to...

    CANTON, Texas -- The father of a high school football player shot and wounded the team's coach Thursday, then fled in a truck loaded with weapons and tried to kill himself by slashing his wrists, authorities said. Jeffrey Doyle Robertson, 45, went to the school just after classes started and shot coach Gary Joe Kinne in the chest, apparently with a .45-caliber pistol, police said. The coach, who also is the school's athletic director, was in critical condition Friday at Trinity Mother Frances Health System in Tyler, said Lisa Morgan, the hospital's clinical coordinator. Robertson's pickup was found about two...

    Push turns to shove in Barr-Linder race By DOUG NURSE Atlanta Journal-Constitution Staff Writer The Bob Barr-John Linder race has gotten cartoonish. A video clip circulating Monday shows a protester dressed as Yosemite Sam in a crowd listening to Barr speak in Canton Saturday. The costumed man, John Harris, 35, of Marietta was making light of a recent Barr mishap -- a gun that accidentally fired at a supporter's home. Harris wore an oversized foam cowboy hat and a button with the words, "Bob Barr's Official Gun Safety Trainer." Harris is approached by man in a light blue shirt identified...

    KAMPALA (Reuters) - Thirty-one Ugandan prison inmates escaped when their guards ran off to chase a rabbit, a newspaper said on Friday. The prisoners were digging in a garden near their prison in northeastern Uganda when a rabbit shot out of a nearby bush. All five guards set off in pursuit. "While they were chasing the rabbit, the inmates also took off in the opposite direction," Lieutenant Colonel John Mulindwa told the state-owned New Vision newspaper. Mulindwa, currently leading a drive to disarm Karimojong warriors in the area, said 10 of the prisoners had been convicted earlier this year of...
