The deadliest battle
of the Afghan war claimed the lives of
ten US soldiers last week. Meanwhile, back at home, the Senate rejected an attempt
to have the top commander in
Afghanistan testify about the increasingly volatile situation.
No word yet from President Obama about the request for more troops. He was otherwise
occupied with a jaunt to Copenhagen to make a personal pitch for the Olympics to
be held in Chicago. And appearing on the Letterman Show
. Obama managed to take time out from
his and Michelle's latest 'date night'
to explain that Afghanistan is not an American battle
- its a NATO mission. I'm sure
that comforted the families of our dead warriors.
Meanwhile, the State Department has gotten rid of all the terrorists. They just renamed them
President Obama continued regaling Americans with healthcare horror stories in order
to garner support for the pending government take over of 17% of the economy. The
only problem: most of his stories just aren't true
. The White House made clear that these
lies were merely 'mis-statements.' Oh, the joys of being a media darling. Speaking
of the media:
The Los Angeles Times has no plan to ever release a video
it obtained of President Obama attending
an anti-Israel event in which he delivered a glowing testimonial for Rashid Khalidi,
a pro-Palestinian professor who excuses terrorism.
The Washington Post admitted it made up a quote
out of whole cloth and the New York Times
bravely admitted that it blew the ACORN scandal
. Translation: they ignored it until
it became so huge they had to report on it. How utterly courageous of them
to admit the obvious.
Cary and Chris Daniels
Cary and Chris Daniels of Dallas have filed a lawsuit seeking big bucks from a former neighbor and
landlord for damage they say was caused by cigarette smoke wafting through adjoining
walls of their high-end townhome. Hey, they've got rights!

A Texas judge has cleared the way for two Dallas men to get a divorce
, ruling that Texas' ban on same-sex
marriage violates the constitutional guarantee to equal protection under the law.
Tufts University has ruled
that “You may not engage in sexual
activity while your roommate is present in the room.” And officials in Berkeley,
California said the fact the south side of the Berkeley park has become a well-known
location for public sex buggery
is hurting the city. Duh.
The Hollywood community is rallying around Roman Polanski. Remember him? He's the
guy that was convicted of drugging and raping a 13 year-old girl 30 years ago. Bringing
new meaning to the old adage that "the wheels of justice grind slowly," Polanski
was finally nabbed in Switzerland. He might just skate again - Whoppi Goldberg has
informed America that in Polanski's case, rape really isn't rape (unless, of course,
its committed by a conservative) Click here

I don't know about you but I'm awful tired of all this sex stuff. Color me prudish.

This is our government at work. Sigh.
