The News in Zingers

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | The White House refused to say which wine was served at the state dinner for Great Britain. Everybody is so sensitive. They didn't want to offend the British by serving a French wine and they did not want to offend cocaine dealers by serving a California wine.
The White House blocked a Texas law requiring voters to show government issued photo-ID at the polls. It's obvious why. As hard as the Democrats are working to turn out the illegal alien vote, the last thing they need is a state law that sends out mixed signals.
President Obama met high school kids competing in the Intel Science Talent Search contest in Washington D.C. The students just rolled their eyes when Obama challenged them to develop green energies. The kids know damn well that the money is in armaments.
President Obama's approval rating slid to an all-time low of forty-one percent in the CBS News poll. He had a bad week. The president is right to be concerned because the moment it hits forty percent, Hillary starts getting her hair done and wearing bright colors.
President Obama cited China Tuesday for banning the export of rare earth minerals needed by U.S. manufacturers to make flat-screen TVs. He's just fighting for the American consumer. Everyone in Los Angeles has a flat screen because they're so light and loot-able.
A New York Times poll taken in the wake of the Georgetown law student testimony showed only twenty-one percent of women back Obama's free contraceptive mandate. It's revealing. This shows that eighty percent of women just got their rate hike in the mail, and that one percent didn't have their reading glasses on when they opened the envelope.
The L.A. Times reported Friday that a California ballot measure to legalize marijuana isn't getting enough signatures to make it onto the ballot. It's the same old problem. The activists who gather up all the signatures keep forgetting where they left the petitions.
