As you all know, Barack Obama is over in the Middle East. Hey, did you see him playing basketball with our troops in Iraq? Did you see that one shot he made from 40 feet? Let me tell you something. If shooting baskets is now a requirement to be president, a white guy may never have that job again. - Jay Leno

Condoleezza: Not So Fast Obama
"Sen. Obama is a senator, let's remember. He sits on the Foreign Relations Committee and he is a candidate for president. He is all of those things," Condoleezza Rice said. "But he has said, and we continue to act on the basis, as do our foreign partners, that this government remains in power until January 2009."

"A lot of
people think, to take some of the spotlight off of Barack Obama, that John
McCain will announce his vice presidential choice this week. And most think it's
gonna be Mitt Romney. See, I don't know. You know, when Romney and McCain stand
together, doesn't it look like one of those slick Countrywide lenders trying to
trick your grandfather into reverse mortgage?" --Jay Leno

Robert Novak aka "The Prince of Darkness"
The pedestrian who was
struck by prominent Washington columnist and commentator Robert Novak is in
worse shape than first thought, a hospital source tells ABC 7 News...Novak said
he did not know he had struck anyone and he didn't know anything was wrong until
a bicyclist rode ahead of him and blocked traffic. The bicyclist, attorney David
Bono, informed Novak he had hit a pedestrian....Bono dismissed Novak's assertion
that he never saw the struck pedestrian."
There was a pedestrian splayed on his windshield -- I don't think there is any
way you can miss that."
Turns out this is not the
first time Novak has had a run-in with pedestrians. The Washington Post's Lloyd
Grove reported back in March of 2001 that CNN researcher Evan Glass was walking
across Pennsylvania Avenue at noon one day when he passed in front of Novak's
Corvette. "Learn to read the signs!" Novak snapped, according to Glass. Novak
told Grove: "He was crossing on the red light. I really hate jay walkers. I
despise them. Since I don't run the country, all I can do is yell at 'em.
The other option is to run 'em over, but as a compassionate conservative, I
would never do that."

Shooting the Messengers
It is becoming
less unusual to hear of American journalists abroad who are detained, kidnapped
or even killed in the line of duty. But for local journalists across Africa,
Asia and the Mideast, kidnapping, detentions and threats to their families are
Journalists from these places assume a target on their backs the moment they pick up a pen, and conduct their work dodging the scopes of local mafias, corrupt officials - and now, the U.S. government.
