Egypt slammed a contest to name the Seven New Wonders of the World. The Pyramids are the only one of the ancient wonders still in existence. At least they were before the Hanging Gardens of Babylon was brought out of retirement for Saddam's farewell party.
Hillary Clinton got a big laugh in Iowa Sunday when she said she had lots of experience dealing with evil men. It works everywhere. If Saddam Hussein had told a Bill Clinton joke on the scaffold he would have gotten the crowd back on his side.
Hillary Clinton was in Iowa Sunday campaigning among Democrats. At one event an open microphone picked up her voice as she sang the National Anthem three or four notes flat. She could go down in American political history as Francis Off Key.
Rudy Giuliani was in New Hampshire Sunday sounding a lot like a presidential candidate. He listed just a few of his accomplishments as mayor of New York. He hasn't mentioned getting rid of the hookers ever since Nevada moved its primary up to early February.
The Washington Post reported Sunday that Mexico is in the middle of the worst tortilla crisis in its history now that corn prices have skyrocketed due to the American demand for ethanol.
