http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Rush Limbaugh lost Legal Zoom as a show sponsor Tuesday in his contraception flap with Democrats. It's owned by L.A. attorney Robert Shapiro. You know it's not your day when the lawyer who got O.J. Simpson acquitted thinks you've been too disrespectful of women.
President Obama consoled Sandra Fluke Sunday about Rush Limbaugh's rant on her for demanding taxpayer-paid condoms. It's a controversial subject. Half of America wants to be protected by Barack Obama while the other half want to be protected from Barack Obama.
Super Tuesday went well for Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and even Ron Paul. Each candidate did just well enough to stay in the race. If Jesus returned to Earth today and offered Republicans just one miracle they'd ask him to winnow the field.
China's president Hu Jintao blasted a bill in Congress that allows for higher tariffs on Chinese goods. It could start a trade war. It's the most belligerent U.S. act since George Bush stood in front of the Great Wall of China and urged Hu Jin Tao to tear down this wall.
President Obama urged patience with Iran in a speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee on Saturday. This week he's a peacemaker. When you just compared yourself in your last speech to Gandhi and Nelson Mandela, even expecting someone to deliver you a pizza within thirty minutes is an act of imperialism.
Powerball Lottery officials announced Tuesday eighty-one year-old Rhode Islander Louise White won the lottery with a ticket she bought in Newport. Three hundred and sixty-four million dollars was won by an eighty-one-year-old woman. She is set for life.
NBC star Alec Baldwin left the door open for a future New York Mayor's run on CNN's Piers Morgan. If terrorists attacked the city, he wouldn't walk the streets with a mask over his face like Rudy Giuliani did. Actors can't stand it when people don't recognize them.
