Benjamin Netanyahu soothed us all with his melodious honey voice earlier this week, while at the same time putting the fear of Allah¬†into¬†Iran. Barack Obama and Joe Biden were so intimidated before Bibi even started speaking that they couldn’t even muster the courage¬†to attend.
The DOJ has decided that (former) police officer Darren Wilson is innocent of killing Michael Brown for race reasons, six months after a¬†jury decided the same thing. Wilson is now free! in the same way George Zimmerman was freed to live a¬†completely normal and happy life full of opportunity.
The Army declared¬†this week that Bradley Manning, who betrayed the U.S. by making public top-secret¬†documents, will from now on be referred to as a “she,” as Bradley, aka “Chelsea,” transitions from a male to a female. Bradley should also request that the Army refer to him as “innocent” while he’s at it.
Parents and children upset at the D.C. sled-riding ban took to Capitol Hill yesterday to protest in the form of a “sled-in.” The defiance was hailed as a “great day for sledding and democracy.” I agree. Nothing screams “democracy!” quite like¬†a good old-fashioned, angry mob.
The DOJ is¬†planning to bring criminal corruption charges against Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ).¬†In other words, he’s being charged¬†for being a politician.¬†
Harrison Ford was in a harrowing, Howard Hughes-esque close-call when he crash-landed his WWII-era airplane. Ford broke some bones and hit his head, but is expected to make a full recovery. It was likely¬†a reactor leak. Large leak, very dangerous.¬†
