News Roundup for 1/22/09

Kamikaze pilot
Typical antiabortion protester

-Headline of the day-
"SUV smashed into Planned Parenthood in St. Paul."

Some people celebrate the 36th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade by visiting Krispy Kreme and enjoying a nice pro-abortion doughnut, while others celebrate by making a kamikaze run at the neighborhood family-planning clinic.

No one was hurt; including the driver, who was "arrested and charged on suspicion of aggravated assault."

The man refused to give a name. "He's not saying much," a police spokesperson said. "He was praying or chanting when the officers arrived."

If Bush were still in office, the punchline here would be something like "prosecutors must wait to see if the man is Muslim before deciding whether to press charges of domestic terrorism."

But Bush is gone. So I'm stuck.

Dang, this is going to be harder than I thought... (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

-Honeymoon? What honeymoon?-
Noted homosexual and founder of the right wing nutjob site WorldNetDaily has taken a break from his campaign to rid the world of Wikipedia and declared Barack Obama's presidency a failure.

In an article titled "I Told You So," Joseph Farah points out that "Gitmo isn't closed," "The Iraq war continues," and "Robert Gates is still the secretary of defense."

"This man does not have any answers for the deep problems besetting this country," he writes, making the obligatory charge of "socialism."

Geez man, it's day freakin' two! He hasn't solved global warming or saved the economy or won the Global War on Terror either, Joe. If he could get all this done right away, he'd only have to come in to work about once every six months.

Remember how everyone used to talk about the "first 100 days?" Why don't you go do what you noted homosexuals do until then, then get back to us with your report card?

Seriously, if you're going to get this crazy right off the bat, you're going to be full-fledged psychotic by this time next week.

Pace yourself, Joe. Pace yourself. (Right Wing Watch)

-Sit down, for chrissake-
Scandal-plagued, soon-to-be impeached Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich spoke to reporters outside his Chicago home today, complaining that the impeachment process was unfair.

Dressed -- as he always seems to be these days -- in that six-million-dollar-man tracksuit, Blago said the impeachment trial was unfair because he couldn't call witnesses, that the impeachment was a "sham," that blah-blah-blah...

Of course, no one cares about any of that. Why doesn't a reporter ask him if he ever does anything other than jog?

That's what America wants to know. (Associated Press)
