The News in Zingers

By Argus Hamilton

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Oklahoma was rocked by severe thunderstorms Monday after two straight weeks of tornadoes. They're working hard to avoid further damage. Oklahomans are frantically trying to register more Democratic voters in case the IRS has any control over the weather.

President Obama renewed his efforts to close down Guantanamo this week. It's got air conditioning, two soccer fields, a library, a gym, and six guard towers. There's no reason to close it down when it could be converted instantly into a Los Angeles high school.

Los Angeles fire crews battled hillside blazes near Santa Clarita Monday as Governor Jerry Brown took matters into his own hands. It could work. Jerry Brown is on the phone right now trying to persuade the fire to move to Texas for a better economy and lower taxes.

U.S. Congressman Charlie Rangel said the IRS scrutiny of conservatives was the result of a cancer on the IRS office in Cincinnati. Many agree. Michael Douglas now blames his throat cancer on the envelope he licked when he sent in his tax returns seven years ago.

Michael Douglas claimed Sunday he caught his throat cancer from giving oral sex to his wife Catherine Zeta-Jones. Why would he reveal this to the public? The best guess is that Michael Douglas just played Liberace so convincingly that people were starting to talk.

The IRS was found Monday to have spent fifty million dollars of taxpayer money on lavish conferences the last two years. The conference entertainment cost ran up the bill. Throwing taxpayers to the lions was expensive, mostly because of the liability insurance.

IRS commissioner Danny Werfel admitted to Congress Monday that the IRS had overreached in targeting conservative groups. He promised to make it right. The NAACP would be wise to place Pat Buchanan's face on its fundraising stationery until the heat's off.

Tiger Woods was reported Monday to be close to signing a huge extension to endorse Nike apparel and golf equipment. He also has deals with Rolex, Fuse, EA Sports, Upper Deck NetJets, and Kowa. He was dropped by Fidelity the day after Thanksgiving three years ago.

Congress heard testimony from real people Tuesday who'd been targeted by the IRS because they'd sought exemption for their conservative groups. The IRS questions were so intrusive. The only organizations they didn't red flag were the ones that have a red flag.

Miss America 2003 Erika Harold announced she'll run for Congress as a Republican Monday. She was crowned a week after the World Trade Center attack. She sewed up the crown during contestant interviews when she went against type and called for world war.

Boston mob legend Whitey Bulger went on trial for nineteen murders Tuesday. He'd been on the run for twenty-five years before he was found in Southern California. If you've really got what it takes, nothing will keep you from being discovered in Los Angeles.

Hollywood star Steven Seagal flew to Russia Monday to meet with Russia's president Vladimia Putin in the Kremlin in Moscow. The meeting was strictly private. It was just the two of them, the preening, narcissistic fitness buff and superstar, and the movie actor.

Bill Clinton will be paid five hundred thousand dollars for a speech he gives in Israel in two weeks. He gets the crowd on his side right away. Whenever Bill Clinton gives a speech in Israel he always opens by reminding everyone that his last girlfriend was Jewish.
