The News in Zingers

By Argus Hamilton

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Alex Rodriguez smashed his first home run in spring training Wednesday, serving notice on the N.Y. Yankees front office that he's going to be expensive this year. That's because his contract is laden with performance bonuses. If Alex strikes out a hundred times, he gets a government windmill subsidy.

The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau approved Palcohol Thursday, which is alcohol in powdered form that you're supposed to mix with water. Not everyone reads the instructions on the packet. During the mandatory government testing process, Charlie Sheen nearly destroyed his sinuses.

Hillary Clinton flew to high-tech Silicon Valley to speak to eBay workers Thursday. She doesn't believe you can put two e-mail addresses on one device and she wants to be their president. That's okay, under the Continuity of Government Act, presidents can never know what they're talking about.

Scott Walker met Beverly Hills donors last week as Marco Rubio landed a Mitt Romney staffer while Jeb Bush continued raising money. It doesn't affect the GOP nomination process. No one's going to be nominated til they all ride a horse and we see which one looks the most like Ronald Reagan.

Iranian soldiers led Iraqi soldiers into battle and recaptured Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit from ISIS. Our last enemy was led by our next enemy and defeated our current enemy. Things are going so much smoother ever since the Obamacare website team moved over to Pentagon planning.

Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter told Congress Wednesday that ISIS is metastasizing outside of Syria and Iraq. He's a theoretical physicist. President Obama wants to know how we can theoretically put one hundred thousand U.S. troops back into the Middle East without their boots touching the ground.

Fidel Castro told students in Havana that Barack Obama was brilliant in how he got health care reform passed but he added that Obama is a capitalist-imperialist. He's a real wordsmith. Leave it to Fidel Castro to be able to say something that makes both Democrats and Republicans proud of Obama.

Hillary Clinton explained Tuesday she used private e-mail because she didn't want to carry one smartphone for private and one for business which got a huge laugh from young people. This is a switch. After twenty-five years, we finally have a Clinton scandal that your kids have to explain to YOU.

Hillary Clinton flubbed a press conference intended to explain why she used private e-mail to conduct foreign policy. She said she deleted any e-mails she deemed private and declared she won't surrender the server. Harrison Ford sounded better assuring the tower that he had the runway in sight.

Hillary Clinton took questions about her e-mail scandal at a U.N. press conference Tuesday. Her party leaders rallied to her side afterwards. Being a Democrat means insisting that Hillary Clinton's private e-mails are her own business while conceding that Bill Clinton's sex life is everybody's business.

Utah's legislature passed a law allowing capital punishment by firing squad if Utah has trouble getting lethal injection drugs. The European patent-holder of the liquid lethal cocktail will no longer sell it to U.S. states. Vladimir Putin always carries the antidote in case somebody switches drinks on him.

The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau on Wednesday approved the sale of powdered alcohol to the public. That's a start. Now if we can just get alcohol approved in crack form, L.A. can have the sentencing disparities between whites and blacks causing civil unrest and free Apple products.

The Colorado Rockies made history Monday announcing they will sell marijuana brownies at the concession stands at their home games in Denver this year. It could improve the officiating of the game. If the umpires eat these brownies between innings, no one can blame glaucoma for the bad calls.

Tim Tebow is training with Tom Brady's quarterback coach to improve his passing for the NFL veterans scouting combine in Phoenix next week. His odyssey has really matured him. When Tim Tebow sees people kneeling on New York subways, he now knows they're not praying, they're wounded.
