important news ....
The Weather Channel said Arctic air swept into the Midwest,
freezing everyone in its path last weekend. The bitter cold forced
many people to take desperate measures. To keep their hands warm
in Iowa Monday, the Democrats burned Howard Dean.
Howard Dean launched into a frightful rant during a speech
to his supporters in Iowa late Monday night. It was an
unbelievable spectacle. They must keep him away from folding
chairs or Howard Dean could be the next Governor of Minnesota.
Senator John Edwards of North Carolina stole the show in
Iowa with a second place showing. By caucus day he convinced many
Democrats that we live in two Americas. Only a Southerner would
pick Martin Luther King Day to argue for secession.
President Bush delivered his State of the Union speech to a
joint session of Congress last night. The annual address is
America's answer to the Speech from the Throne to Parliament. It's
an especially noteworthy occasion this year because not even Queen
Victoria at the height of her glory ever thought of colonizing Mars.
Senate Democrats demanded the omnibus spending bill protect
consumers by requiring country-of-origin labeling on beef. It's
amazing. Who would believe the answer to food safety in America
was the membership policy of the Los Angeles Country Club.
The Salvation Army learned the late McDonald's heir Joan
Kroc left them $1.5 billion in her will. It's a wonderful
organization. It has always provided a hot meal and a warm bed for
people who are forced to live on what McDonald's pays them.
McDonald's dropped Kobe Bryant Monday as the television commercial spokesman for the hamburger chain. You would think he would be the perfect guy. McDonald's is in the fast food business and Kobe Bryant committed adultery in only five minutes.
