Bits and pieces

Yeah, but can he jump on his camel and ride????


In the two weeks since Newsweek has redesigned, the magazine’s editors have sent out a statement that they intend to sever any and all connection to the turgid, dusty newsweekly of yore. And Jon Meacham, the magazine’s editor, is trying to recapture that age-old magazine editor’s trick for his newly conceived book: buzz.

For the next issue that hits newsstands on June 8, Comedy Central funnyman Stephen Colbert will be Newsweek’s guest editor, The Observer has learned.
“I was just very impressed with the range of his knowledge and he had an almost encyclopedic feel for anything that came up,” said Mr. Meacham.


Like most Lefties, this pair knows everything and understand nothing.


Oh! The humanity of it all!

Angelina Jolie has been named the most powerful celebrity in the world, forcing Oprah Winfrey off the top spot and into second.


I thought I felt the earth move.


CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez said on Tuesday that he and Cuban ally Fidel Castro risk being more conservative than U.S. President Barack Obama as Washington prepares to take control of General Motors Corp.


You know, Hugo has a point!


VATICAN CITY (AP) - A Vatican official is lamenting that many faithful no longer confess their sins, and says some confuse a psychologist's couch for a confessional booth.
Archbishop Mauro Piacenza has told Vatican Radio the sacrament of penance has been experiencing a "deep crisis" for decades. Piacenza, an official for the Vatican office on clergy, says fewer people distinguish between good and evil, and as a result don't go to confession.


On the other hand, maybe people have just been being good??


Shane Kadidal, who meets with detainees as an attorney with the New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights, said expectations for dramatic change have ebbed. He said prisoners know that only two prisoners have been released since Obama took office, compared with more than 500 under the administration of former President George W. Bush.

"They're saying, 'At least Bush sent some people home,'" he said.


Hey look, he’s been a disappointment to us, too.


No good deed goes unpunished!

SANDUSKY, Ohio -An Ohio man arrested for mowing unkempt grass at a public park said he just wanted to make his city look nice. John Hamilton said he took control of the situation because the grass in Sandusky's Central Park was about a foot high. According to a police report, a witness said Hamilton was blowing grass onto the sidewalk and shredding trash in the park that had not been picked up.

Police said they arrested 48-year-old Hamilton after he refused to stop mowing and charged him with obstructing official business and disorderly conduct.

Now if he had ony relieved himself against a tree, pulled a grocery cart personal transport device through some flower beds and muttered dark curses against unseen foes nothing would have happened.

In the meantime Sandusky has assumed top position on my "Places I will never visit" list, replacing Paris. And I thought that would never happen.


Obama marginalizes us

For a long time I thought Obamie was just another socialist, educated but ignorant about the real world. His stupid remarks... 57states.... didn't know what the Reverend was saying, etc., have been ignored by the Lame Stream Media, as was his pissing away $45,000 of my money taking his wife out to dinner.... Look Obamie, if you don't like dining at the White House, resign and let Biden take over..... But now he takes it further...

What I want to do is to create a better dialogue so that the Muslim world understands more effectively how the United States but also how the West thinks about many of these difficult issues like terrorism, like democracy, to discuss the framework for what's happened in Iraq and Afghanistan and our outreach to Iran, and also how we view the prospects for peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

Now, the flip side is I think that the United States and the West generally, we have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam. And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslims Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world. And so there's got to be a better dialogue and a better understanding between the two peoples.


Uh, Obamie...can we talk?? I mean can you tell me why we need a better dialogue with the Muslim world?? It appears to me that they don't give a flip about what we think and we, or at least the intelligent ones, have figured out that the typical Muslim doesn't give a flip about what we think.

Why should he?? We have elected a President who is busy saying that we won't demand anything of the Muslim world. That pretty well marginalizes us, eh??

Brian Williamns of NBC News bows to Obama

Click here to see Brian Williams of NBC bowing to Obamnie.

This video clearly shows the mindset of Williams. If he worked for me as a news person I would fire him on the spot for "actions unbecoming" and "bring disdain and damage to NBC News."

OK, OK. I know that you can't the Lame Stream Media's reputation. And maybe it was a huge tingle running up his leg that caused the head drop.

Anybody want to make a bet on how long it will be before You Tube jerks the video?

I don't know whether to laugh, cry or puke.
