The Center for Science in the Public Interest sued McDonald's Tuesday saying Happy Meal toys unfairly lure children to come to the restaurant. They said McDonald's is the stranger on the playground handing out candy to kids. NBC Dateline's new series will be called To Catch a Clown.
General Stan McChrystal was fired by the president Wednesday over comments slamming the Obama administration. So there is a way to get U.S. troops out of Afghanistan. All they have to do is criticize President Obama and they'll be on the next plane home.
President Obama insisted Wednesday that General McChrystal's departure signals a change in personnel but not in policy. It's a policy the president can call his own. Our purpose remains not to kill the Taliban but to register them to vote in Chicago.
BP Chairman Tony Hayward was dragged over the coals Monday for attending yacht races in England during the gulf oil spill. Never pass up a chance to start a class war. If Democrats had their way, all yacht races would start a mile above Niagara Falls.

The U.S. Border Patrol thwarted an attempt by a Mexican drug cartel on Monday to blow up a dam in Texas. It's a turf war rooted in business. Not that many people know that the Battle of the Alamo was actually a dispute between drywall contractors.
Hillary Clinton flew by President Obama in popularity and job approval ratings Monday. Many Democrats are sorry they didn't nominate the former first lady and now the military feel the same way. The movement for monarchy in America is gaining steam.
