Inverness Police say former Cook County Republican Chairman Gary Skoien admitted having two prostitutes in his children’s playroom when his wife walked in on him early Sunday morning.The first report I saw said she beat him with a toy guitar.... I'm thinking video game gone wrong? Hmmmmm
The allegation is in a domestic battery report from Skoien, 55, against his 36-year-old, 5-foot-4-inch, 110-pound wife. He said she beat him with her fists and an electric guitar.

Yesterday, legendary country music singer Dolly Parton had the “usually sedate crowd” at the National Press Club “cracking up with her self-deprecating humor and one-liners, including a few on politics.” Parton, who was in town for her role as an ambassador for Great Smoky Mountains National Park said, “Somebody said to me, ‘Well, you know what — you’ve got such a big mouth and you know how to talk to people, did you ever think about running for president?’ … I said, ‘I think we’ve had enough boobs in the White House, but hopefully [President] Obama ain’t gonna be one of them.’”

Well, roger me ragged, I always thought half a mill was not quite a sh*tpot full of money.

Watch this, "And the band played Waltzing Matilda" by the Pogues, a great anti-war song.
Here's what I wrote:
Call their bluff.
Make them filibuster!
Dear Senator Reid,
The republicans in the Senate seem intent on obstructing the stimulus bill (and probably other upcoming legislation as well.)
Please, please do not let the mere threat of a filibuster dissuade you.
Expose their obstructionist tactics to the light of day. MAKE THEM FILIBUSTER!!!!!
US border fence found remarkably ineffective and difficult to completeWhile we were worrying about 16-foot ladders, and using ground penetrating radar to look for tunnels, the smugglers were building ramps. That' s just not fair.
Smugglers build ramps
The planned 670-mile fence along the US border with Mexico has proven remarkably ineffective at deterring or stopping illegal crossers to the United States, advocates and critics of the fence admit.
Moreover, the fence's construction remains in limbo in numerous areas, where legal, political and engineering obstacles have brought its implementation to a halt.
In a related story, smugglers were also able to discover the extent of the wall and walk around the end of the fence.

(I initially supported him, but his relationship with the healthcare industry turns out to be too meretricious for my tastes.)
Can't we just find someone who overpaid their taxes?

The Prisoner was a favorite of mine.
'Prisoner' actor Patrick McGoohan dies in LA
By ANDREW DALTON
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Patrick McGoohan, an Emmy-winning actor who created and starred in the cult classic television show "The Prisoner," has died. He was 80.
McGoohan died Tuesday in Los Angeles after a short illness, his son-in-law, film producer Cleve Landsberg, said Wednesday.
McGoohan won two Emmys for his work on the Peter Falk detective drama "Columbo," and more recently appeared as King Edward Longshanks in the 1995 Mel Gibson film "Braveheart."
But he was best known as the title character Number Six in "The Prisoner," a surreal 1960s British series in which a former spy is held captive in a small village and constantly tries to escape.
