"We look for common ground," she said, "but where we cannot find common ground, we must stand our ground." - Nancy Pelosi
"Washington is stirring over a forthcoming novel about the Obama administration, written by an anonymous author who is said to have "vast experience" on the subject of the Obama White House. O: A Presidential Novel, published by Simon & Schuster, will hit shelves on Jan. 25. Besides the title, little else is known about the book. In 1996, reporter Joe Klein anonymously published a similar book about the Clinton White House. Klein has denied that he has anything to do with O. You can bet the race to figure out who is responsible will heat up in the coming weeks." Safe bets are that it is a labradoodle mystery, where a famous waterdog saves the president's life while out on their daily walks. Another theory is that one of the Obama daughters really has secret superpowers and gets to use them while saving the free world, all in time for lunch, to borrow from my own favorite super-heroes. Or, it could be a garden mystery, set outside among the organic vegetables of the White House garden, where the upbeat Mrs Obama must use the skills she had to set aside to become First Lady, solve the mystery, rid us of obesity, and keep her marriage intact in the face of slurs from the opposition. Finally, it could be the mystery of O: a Kenyan Birth Certificate Mystery, complete with pictures and official state seals...
"The feisty Venezuelan president – who caused a diplomatic row by refusing Mr. Obama’s first choice for Washington’s new ambassador to Caracas – has a personal short list for the job. Mr. Chávez says he’d take director Oliver Stone, actor Sean Penn, linguist and philosopher (and longtime critic of US foreign policy in Latin America) Noam Chomsky, or – why not? – Bill Clinton..." Little known fact, when actor Sean Penn went and toured Cuba, he got to interview Fidel Castro, which was subsequently published, and that is why his name is on Chavez's list. But this opens up a whole new set of possibilites, celebrities as ambassadors. The UN uses them as "goodwill" ambassadors, but I know there is a new game I just invented, matching up our favorite celebrities with the countries we think they should go to, and the reasons why... An easy example, Madonna goes as ambassador to Argentina, which won't cry for her. I would have Bill and Hillary Clinton as ambassadors at large, constantly circling the hemispheres, sometimes together, often apart... And, I would send George W Bush out as ambassador to Osama bin Laden...
ex-Pentagon employee, who was filmed in a parking garage and office building, wandering about in a confused state, almost as if he had been hit by some kind of electro-magnetic pulse. His body was later mysteriously found in a landfill, over 15 miles away, as described in the Denver Post: "Questions about the death of a for mer Pentagon official multiplied Wednesday as police reported he had been wandering downtown Wilmington disoriented in the days before his body was found at a nearby landfill.
Two days before John P. Wheeler III's body was found, parking garage videos showed him in a black suit with no tie, wearing only one shoe even though there was snow outside. The 66-year-old New Castle resident was carrying his other, ripped, burgundy loafer. He told a parking attendant he wanted to get warm before he paid for parking, but police said his car wasn't there. He also said his briefcase was stolen and repeatedly said he wasn't drunk.
The last time he was seen alive on video, he was wandering an office building and had refused help from several people who approached him, police said. About 14 hours later, he was found in the landfill."
Next, jackdaws in Sweden also mysteriously rain out of the sky last night, and albino twin tigers are born at the Bangkok zoo. These mysterious and supposedly unrelated events culminate in the leaked files, possibly from the Pentagon, or even by the Chinese government, of a stealth plane that the Chinese are developing and could use electro-magnetics in its flight. Or as a weapon, since one is also being developed by the Pentagon as a non-lethal weapon for crowd control, except it kills birds and fishes when used at that level... does that make more sense than UFO's, weather manipulation, or the use of black helicopters? This past season on television a couple of shows depicting our interactions with extra-terrestrial aliens were canceled from lack of interest, and now we have resurrected the alien as vicious predator in the show V... If I thought that Jesse Ventura made any sense, I'd say he might be right...
