Pennsylvania Democrats aren't amused. To the working class, being a terrible bowler is the first sign of a monarchist.
Hillary Clinton said reasonable people differ over the merits of the Colombia free-trade deal, admitting she's against it and her husband is for it.
Bill takes the money for supporting the trade deal while Hillary takes the votes for opposing the trade deal. Chelsea taught them how to do that when she worked for the hedge fund.
Bill Clinton was called the most expensive ex-president in history Thursday by congressional auditors for his cost to the taxpayers. How many times do the bean counters of this world need to hear this before it finally sinks in.
Funny isn't free. Air America radio host Randi Rhodes resigned rather than apologize for calling Hillary Clinton a whore while speaking onstage in San Francisco. It was painful to watch.
Two drinks and a microphone have ended more careers than rotator cuff surgery.

Dear Abby,I am a 60-year-old woman who is married to a man who acts like he hates me. In public, he pretends he loves me and talks about how wonderful I am. But in private, he shakes his finger in my face and calls me the "B" word. He constantly tells me how ugly I am without make-up.
I've tried everything,including a face-lift, botox treatments, and a chin tuck. I even went on a diet and lost 20 pounds.He quit his job a few years ago after having an affair with a woman in his office. He hasn't even looked for another job. We haven't slept together since I confronted him about the affair.
He denied it, of course, but everybody knew it. It was humiliating. I believe he is still messing around.
While we both want to sell this house, we argue constantly about when to put it on the market. The house we want will be available in a few months.

Signed,Worried in NY
Dear Worried in NY:I doubt it. He wants to move back into the White House as much as you do.
New element added to Periodic ChartResearch has led to the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. The new element, Governmentium (Gv), has one neuron, 25 assistant neurons, 88 deputy neurons, and 198 assistant deputy neurons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.
These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons. Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert; however, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact.
A minute amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second to take from four days to four years to complete. Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2-6 years; it does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neurons and deputy neurons exchange places.
In fact, Governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neurons, forming isodopes. This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.
When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium, an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.
