North Korea Wants Ticket to Obama Inauguration

Yup, they want to send their chief nuclear envoy to witness the coronation inauguration of Obama. They were even extra super nice in asking and refrained from their usual US-bashing crap. If the Associated Press is right about these bad guys (who are really just misunderstood good guys) then maybe they’ve turned of a new, less murderous, leaf: The North’s move, if confirmed, would be another sign the regime is eager to forge good relations with the next U.S. administration. But, gee-golly, call me a skeptic cause I just ain’t buying the happy face routine. Though it looks like we

Bobby Jindal Says ‘No’ to Presidential Run

In a bit of sad news Lousiana Governor Bobby Jindal bluntly told reporters “No” when asked if he was interested in being President. The question came while Jindal was in Virgina endorsing Bob McDonnell who is a Republican running for governor of Virginia. And it came after Jindal stirred up speculation by visiting the all important primary state of Iowa last month. Unfortunately, this rules out my favorite candidate for ’12. A man who has earned praise and respect for his successful application of conservative principles at a time when the popular thing to do is turn left. He has

AP Cites Workers ‘Occupying’ Factory as a ‘Rallying Point’

In an article heroically chronicling the efforts of 200 union workers “occupying” their old window and door factory the Associated Press made sure to emphasize how the squatters have given the nation’s grim economy a “rallying point.” Here is how they introduced the story (emphasis added): The nation’s grim economy now has a rallying point: Employees at a window-and-door factory that went out of business have taken over the building in a siege that has come to symbolize the woes of the ordinary worker. Yes, that’s right; the AP sees a group of people who are illegally squatting on private

Associated Press Cites Cookie Success as Example of Obama’s Change

No… I couldn’t make this up if I tried: Want an example of the change Barack Obama is bringing to the country? Check out cookie sales at Baby Boomers Cafe in Des Moines. Yes… that’s right, not only is Obama our new savior but he is now our new Pillsbury Doughboy. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_I3br9m-68 Actually, judging by this comment from the owner of the cafe that Obama has shown his grace upon maybe he is a strange doughboy messiah combination, or, in other words, he is a savory savior: “I think everybody just … thought, ‘Oh, great cookie, great president _ the

Bristol Palin watch out… The AP has a crush on Levi Johnston

Yea, you read it right. The Associated Press seems to have a crush on Levi Johnston, which is obviously odd considering the fact that the AP has been so very unfriendly and unprofessional towards the Palins. On second thought though… I guess only one thing changed. Now instead of being unfriendly and unprofessional they are too friendly and unprofessional. I mean this article, while less deranged than their others, still fails the test of legitimacy for a professional news agency. Just look at some of these quotes from the article (my emphasis added): “Johnston, a Wasilla heartthrob, said he wanted
