Clinton: I Won't Move if Palin Becomes President
Economy prompts fresh look at ND's socialist bank
troops at lowest level since Iraq invasion
A few words of advice for all you anti- Obama conservatives out there. Quit it with the whole teleprompter fixation, would ya? Okay, okay, we get it, you don't like the President. I'm serious here, and only trying to help. You look like idiots. For one thing, Everybody uses a teleprompter. No. No. No. EVERYBODY. I'm talking CEOs, news anchors, dog- catchers, dog- throwers, late night talk show hosts and every politician on the face of the planet. When Glenn Beck spits contempt at the president's lame reliance on a teleprompter he's reading his criticism... off a teleprompter. - Will Durst
Israeli Assassins Hit Dubai
British authorities were
today investigating whether any its nationals had their identities stolen by the
assassination squad who killed a Hamas leader in a Dubai hotel.
Police in the Gulf state are conducting an international manhunt for 11 suspects in the murder of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in his hotel room on January 19.
At the recent Teabagger convention, which is like saying Republicans squared (uber elephants,) Sarah Palin gave a speech mocking the President for using a teleprompter, while she was wearing crib notes inked on her hand. Talk about the Bering Sea calling the Chicago River moist. Hypocrite, or retro techno geek? After all, what are notes on a hand besides a fifth grade teleprompter? Hey, Sarah, so how's that inky- palmy thing working out for ya?- Will Durst
Subject: What the F%&k
What is it with the
Democrats leaving office. After asking us to give them
money and promising to represent us. They bail. I'm so pissed I could
spit nails. We should be allowed to throw rotten tomatoes at them.
I hope you are well. I think that you are, that is my feelings about it. But
I've felt that way from the get go. You are a survivor.
Gee, Susan, I wish you'd tell me what you think!
I love you, girlfriend, and all I have to add is rotten eggs to those rotten tomatoes.
Those Democratic Congressman chose not to help their president make history. They will regret it someday. What, they don't realize power is in numbers?
Fighters fight, quitters quit.
Your feelings are correct, I am doing better than I ever expected. My body is tired a lot but not my spirits thanks to wonderful people as yourself.
Good vibrations sent your way.

I assumed that the President's appearance in front of a group of Republican congressmen answering questions would put a stop to this ludiculous teleprompter charge, since he skated for an hour and a half without benefit of notes or teleprompter or transmitter hidden under the back of his suit coat. But, no. You guys are like a pit bull with an invisible chew toy.- Will Durst
Subject: Monday's feel good picture
At the end of Monday's AHNC you used a wonderful picture from the
Maverick's surf contest.
It is held at Half Moon Bay, a wide place in Highway 1 that winds from LA
up the whole west coast. Half Moon Bay isn't far from where I live, it
is just above Santa Cruz, CA and has always been a small size fishing
village (in past years) and now hippies and tourists. Ah yes, the
hippies are still very much alive and well on the coast. There are many
ranches that border the coast and they specialize in growing artichokes,
broccoli, brussel sprouts and other crops that thrive in the cool salt
air. Near by is the state beach where the ugly elephant seals meet,
greet and mate.
I suppose you also read the reports that this year's Maverick's event was
almost deadly with rogue waves coming up on the beach where stupid people
flocked to get a better look at the event. The organizers beg people to
stay up on the cliffs but they don't listen. Even the cliffs aren't safe,
a few years back there were so many people on the cliffs that the soft
soil (mostly sand) gave way and there were injuries.
Re: Evan Bayh not running again. I don't blame him at all but I do wish
his remarks about leaving the Congress had been stronger and more pointed.
I'm glad your enjoyed the photo as much as I did.
The Pacific Ocean is particularly fierce and 99.9% of people are blissfully unaware of that. Sad, since most people in the world live on or near the water. I hope the state of California had posted signs for those blissfully unaware.
Your email inspired me to throw my two cents in. I grew up in and on the water in the "Venice of America" in Ft Lauderdale, FL. Most that operate personal watercraft don't know what the hell they're doing. Proper training and licensing are desperately needed, yesterday.
Over the years, I've watched many foolish people sink their vehicles trying to launch their boat and also saw a few sink their boats along with their vehicles. One with two kids in the car -- they got snatched out just before the car disappeared beneath the water. I once had the pleasure of watching a showoff in a fabulous Donzi powerboat get swamped and sunk trying to go head on into a swell through the tricky Boynton Beach Inlet in Florida. The showoff popped up like a lobster buoy. His gorgeous deep throated gurgling Donzi didn't.
The bottom line is, the sea always wins, on or offshore, as any sailor worth their salt knows.
As far as Bayh's speech on why he's not running again for the Senate, it left me cold. What, he's quitting because D.C. is mean? Where has he been the past two decades? Bwaaa. At least he hasn't joined the ranks of Sarah Palin and Joe Scarborough who quit their elected positions before completing their terms. Bayh probably got an better offer in the private sector, just as Sarah and Scarborough did.
During Bayh's adios speech, I couldn't take my eyes off his kids and how much they did not want to be there.
Soon, Trig will be displaying those same emotions, because Sarah Palin continually parades him for her tightly controlled "photo oops".
Bayh, Buh Bye!
By Madeleine Begun Kane
Sen. Bayh will not run again. Why?
Cuz there’s “not enough progress.” How wry!
He says partisanship
Is the cause. Here’s a tip:
Our problem is DINOS like Bayh.

Subject: The Family Guy didn't insult Trig Palin
Certainly not Sarah, nor
Bristol, saw the episode. I did. The episode did NOT mock Trig. Trig is a male
toddler, the character in the episode was a teenage female mainstreamed (in a
"regular" school, with "regular" friends). She was asked out on a date by one of
the lead characters. She turned out to be a jerk. All Palin's outrage is
meaningless and misplaced. Besides, is Todd Palin an accountant?
Todd Palin is a First Dude who also is a highly accomplished professional snowmachiner which requires much accounting, dontcha know?
Of course Palin must know that cartoons, comedians and late night shows make fun of people with horrible disabilities also known as politicians. And if not, why not?
My question to Sarah Palin would be, "Is it true that the name of your next book is, 'Sarah Palin: Professional Victim.?'"
But the best is yet to come, my friend. Read this snappy press release from the nut who didn't fall far from the Paranoia Tree, Bristol Palin, CEO of her new public relations firm in the frozen whining winds of the tundra.
"When you're the son or
daughter of a public figure, you have to develop thick skin. My siblings and I
all have that, but insults directed at our youngest brother hurt too much for us
to remain silent. People with special needs face challenges that many of us will
never confront, and yet they are some of the kindest and most loving people
you'll ever meet. Their lives are difficult enough as it is, so why would anyone
want to make their lives more difficult by mocking them? As a culture, shouldn't
we be more compassionate to innocent people - especially those who are less
fortunate? Shouldn't we be willing to say that some things just are not funny?
Are there any limits to what some people will do or say in regards to my little
brother or others in the special needs community? If the writers of a
particularly pathetic cartoon show thought they were being clever in mocking my
brother and my family yesterday, they failed. All they proved is that they're
heartless jerks. - Bristol Palin"
Her first sentence implies she has thick skin.
Her last sentence resorts to name calling, which I don't believe is a sign of thick skin.
OK, which one of the Forbes 500 companies is going to be the first to snatch Bristol Palin up to head their Public Relations Department?

Can someone explain to me the purpose of the Olympics in today's world. Do the results of the games improve the economy of countries of the medalists, or is this just pretty much self serving nonsense? "Wow, you can really go fast with boards or blades on your feet, is there a job for that?" I really think all this money could be better spent on more important causes / issues. In the current economy, it seems ludicrous that any country can afford the opulence of the Olympic process. I didn't think we still lived in a world where the biggest and the strongest and the fastest ruled. Bill Gates is the richest man in the world and pretty smart too. I don't think he is capable of winning an Olympic medal but on the other hand, all the people doing the maintenance on his house and grounds look pretty strong.
I hear ya, Jonathan, but I 'm a sports fan and the wrong person to ask but I would like to add that the Olympics provide a rare venue for people from all over the world to come together and showcase their finest athletes. Just think how boring life would be if we didn't have the likes of our Tonya Harding involved in the attempted knee breaking of her Olympic ice skating teammate, Nancy Kerrigan.
On a similar note, just look what the Non-Olympic Steroid Sport of Bodybuilding has done for the state of California.
