Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard said Saturday he will sell his inflammatory Prophet Muhammed cartoon. It showed a bomb fuse coming out of a turban. It almost cost Barack Obama his victory in Mississippi until everybody realized it was Muhammed.
John Daly played golf Sunday with the three amateur golfers he stood up in the Arnold Palmer pro-am when he was disqualified Wednesday for being a no-show. It could get worse. John Daly has accumulated so many thirty-day sobriety chips that he's taken up poker.
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama had no events on their calendars Sunday. It's the new campaign schedule. The candidates stay up late to watch Saturday Night Live, then spend Sunday huddled with their advisors to figure out what to do with the clips.
Eliot Spitzer formally resigned as governor of New York Monday because of his sex scandal. There's a reason he hired a New York prostitute to meet him in Washington D.C. for Valentine's Day. Congress had already booked all the Washington D.C. prostitutes.
New York's Lieutenant Governor David Paterson of Harlem was sworn in as the new governor of New York in the state capitol in Albany on Monday. Governor Paterson just happens to be legally blind. It's a condition he had even before St. Patrick's Day.
Barack Obama's pastor Jeremiah Wright was videotaped preaching that the U.S. invented AIDS and deserved the 9/11 attacks, and he urged his congregation to sing G-d Damn America.
