SC governor takes a hike, leaves leaders in dark
Sanford disappears to hike Appalachian Trail on Naked
FYI: I purposely wrote Missing Inaction.
Sanford spent Father's Day hiking without his four sons. The Republican party claims to be the "Family Values Party". There's more to this story.
sad about Iran, but what do you expect about a country with a government that's
propped up by oil, that's led by a religious wacko? Kind of like Alaska."--Bill
Closely watched NKorean ship still off China coast The Associated Press
heard this? We are preparing for a big high seas showdown with North Korea. You
heard that? They may be transporting nukes. We're going to intercept their
ships. It's going to be fun stuff! That's right, we're going to be intercepting
their ships. The winner of the round meets the Somali pirates. And the loser has
to fight the Carnival cruise line." --Bill Maher
North Korea Update
North Korea would like to test missiles and advance its nuclear program, while smuggling arms to some potentially bad actors for extra cash. The U.S. would like North Korea to stop doing all of these things. Neither side is particularly interested in finding out what happens should the other press the issue. And thus North Korea and the U.S. find themselves in a very strange Kabuki war. Pyongyang is plainly the instigator, continuing its rash of missile and nuclear tests while apparently seeking hard currency by peddling weapons to all buyers.
— Lost? Or Losing It? (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane
Gov. Sanford — oh let’s call
him Mark —
Has left his whole state in the dark.
He’s gone missing, they say.
Can they reach him? No way!
Is he nuts, or just lost in some park?
John Ensign was a promise keeper. He was a big proponent of the Defense of Marriage Act. And a loud voice calling for Clinton to resign during the Lewinsky scandal. So he has hit the hypocrisy trifecta." --Bill Maher

French Fashion = No Burkas
PARIS, France (CNN) -- The French National Assembly announced on Tuesday the creation of a parliamentary inquiry into whether women in France should be allowed to wear the burka...."The problem of the burka is not a religious problem. This is an issue of a woman's freedom and dignity. This is not a religious symbol. It is a sign of subservience; it is a sign of lowering. I want to say solemnly, the burka is not welcome in France," Sarkozy told lawmakers.
"Don't you know that this could be the first revolution brought to you by Twitter? Because that's how people are communicating to go of the rallies and so forth, and show the pictures of what's going on. Authorities, of course, in Iran shut down cell phone networks. They shut down the internet. Calls are absolutely not getting through or they're dropped immediately. Or as T-Mobile calls it, normal service." --Bill Maher
Some experts are saying the Iranian election was rigged because in some towns, voter turnout was more than 100%. What’s even stranger, all those extra votes were from elderly Jewish people in Palm Beach, Florida.- Conan O'Brien

knife accidentally left in her enclosure by a keeper in this picture taken on
Tuesday June 16, 2009. Zoo officials say that gorillas don't understand the idea

keeper carried the paring knife into the enclosure to help prepare food for the
gorillas, said Cathy Gaviller, the zoo's director of conservation, education and
research. He stuck the blade in his pocket, but it slid out unnoticed and was
