    Hes done it again! Obama is UNBEATABLE! He beat Jim Thompson in a stunning upset in the Rose Garden on Friday morning, though no one actually saw Thompson, and there have been no confirmed sightings of him on either the White House grounds or anywhere in Washington D.C. None the less the President was shown holding his egg above his head in victory, a large grin upon his face. However, this did not prevent President from graciously thanking Mr. Thompson for his sportsmanship and for the ribald jokes told while on the playing field. "So, Jim, did that balloon popping...
  • Is Fox News Becoming Liberal?

    Fox News | 4/6/07
    Two glaring examples tonight:Fox News about an hour ago breathlessly reported on this new global warming report, and stated straight out that scientists have concluded the World is facing a catastrophe with millions dying of hunger, draught, and disease, and that man IS the cause. Further, they reported that only drastic economic changes can reverse course.They did NOT present any differing views. They reported all this as fact. Sheperd Smith was anchoring, but I don't think you can only blame the anchor for the news writing and reporting.At one point they showed a clip of a scientist predicting catastrophe and...

    Sean Hannity Interview, 2007: HANNITY: Let me move on. And the issue of guns has come up a lot. When people talk about Mayor Giuliani, New York City had some of the toughest gun laws in the entire country. Do you support the right of people to carry handguns? GIULIANI: I understand the Second Amendment. I support it. People have the right to bear arms. When I was mayor of New York, I took over at a very, very difficult time. We were averaging about 2,000 murders a year, 10,000... HANNITY: You inherited those laws, the gun laws in New...

    Iím embarrassed Iím embarrassed to have an ďRĒ stamped on my voter ID card Bear in mind I didnít say Iím embarrassed to be a conservative, but in todayís political lexicon the two are linked like democrat equals liberal, thanks to the great conservative leaders that used to lead and run the party political machine that made these terms almost interchangeable in the American mind for the last twenty years. In a larger sense, I am way past embarrassed with our political process. Looking and watching Congress between the House and Senate is like watching a bunch of children play...

    BAGHDAD (AP) -- U.S. and Iranian envoys exchanged direct talks Saturday on efforts to end Iraq's violence and bolster its government, opening limited but potentially significant contacts that could ease their nearly 28-year diplomatic freeze. The discussions were confined to one session during a conference on Iraq stability, but they appeared to offer room for further interaction between the two nations _ which find themselves increasingly drawn toward common issues in Iraq as the nation's most influential allies. The U.S. ambassador to Iraq, Zalmay Khalilzad, said he exchanged views with Iranian delegates "directly and in the presence of others" at...

    I browsed through my middle and high school yearbooks recently, while drinking cold, depreciating mugs of Pigs Eye beer. Taking care not to drip the dying slags of falling frost upon the aged pages, I wrestled with an obvious truth concerning yearbook nostalgia: We look silly. We act silly. We have silly sayings we believe are cool. We rely upon certain people to be the "in crowd" while others more substantial fade into the background. We have silly hair styles and clothing. We spent money on toys, games, and music that quickly goes out of style. We even made David...

    Juneau Empire ^ | September 14, 2006 | ERIC MORRISON
    By ERIC MORRISON Cryptic graffiti spray-painted next to a swastika on Juneau's lone synagogue angered and confused many late last month. Police initially labeled the mark "pp4lyf" as "gang-related graffiti," but to some Internet-savvy youth the tag seems less likely to be a sign of the infiltration of organized hatemongers in Juneau than of the proliferation of an increasingly popular type of computer slang known as "leetspeak." Leetspeak, or leet, is a computer communication style in which letters are replaced with numbers and symbols to spell or abbreviate phrases and sentences. Although leet is far from new - it is...

    Phrases that sound innocent as well as dirty--depending on your mindset: Petra told Ingrid, "You have a lovely rug." Let's grab something at the golden arches. St. Louis was once known as Mound City. She was caught raising the flag this weekend. The cavernous hole is wet with dew. She favored wood as a golfer. No one ever confused Lance as a wine sipper; hard stuff was his passion. There was ecstatic joy as Marc Spitz lapped the pool several times in triumph, until he accidently fell into the mud. We were in a tight spot as our camels' toes...
