The News in Zingers

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Texas inmate Keith Judd upset President Obama in eight counties in West Virginia's primary. The voters preferred a jailbird. The next day, Bill Clinton reminded viewers he was impeached and would have done time if he hadn't agreed to give up his law license.
NBC's Saturday Night Live ran a hilarious parody of President Obama's speech about his decision to kill bin Laden in Saturday's dress rehearsal. It's a matter of propriety. Everyone's waiting for Rudy Giuliani to say that it's okay to laugh at the Obama presidency.
Senate Democrats introduced a bill Wednesday to ban employers from demanding that job applicants give them the password to their Facebook page. Some things should be private. It's real turnoff to bosses if your home page says you went to Yale and you forget to add Locksmith School.
Mexico Congressional candidate Natalia Juarez posed topless for a campaign billboard to promote her candidacy. The national election has been marked by violence, profanity and now nudity. ABC is making it a summer replacement series for Desperate Housewives.
Al-Qaeda's underwear bomber turned out to be a double agent in the May Day plot to blow up an airline with a non-metal bomb. The TSA says they never would have seen the bomb in the security line. They only watch for metals, anything else is too hard to fence.
The Transportation Department ripped New York air traffic controllers Tuesday for playing video games on their iPhones instead of watching the planes. They play the same game on the radar screen. Whoever wins at Bird Strike doesn't pay for the beer that night.
Occupy Wall Street in Washington had their office rent paid by a union Tuesday. The protesters carry their belongings with them on the streets. Last week they made the mistake of protesting in front of the airport and Spirit Airlines nailed them for fifty dollars a bag.
