And now for the important news ....

The White House dismissed a poll showing a fourth of Americans think President Obama is Muslim. The misinformation is widespread. Tiger Woods is just relieved he got adultery out of the way before an executive order makes it a beheading offense.
Tiger Woods finalized his divorce with Elin Nordegren in Florida Monday, giving the wronged wife five hundred million dollars. It wasn't the first time cheating has been profitable. When Bill Clinton was president the nation was running a surplus.
American Airlines began charging extra for earlier seating in coach Monday. It just never ends. Last night a guy went online thinking about booking a flight on American and they charged him one hundred dollars for thinking about booking a flight.
President Obama scheduled a speech marking the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq Sunday. The same day the Pentagon said tribal warfare may keep U.S. troops in Iraq many years. It has Americans admiring salmonella for at least having an exit strategy.
New York construction workers signed petitions not to build a mosque at Ground Zero Monday. The site could get hostile. Muslims are crazy if they think New York construction workers aren't going to whistle at a woman just because she's in a burka.
New York was the site of angry street protests Sunday against the construction of the Ground Zero mosque in Manhattan. There's a double standard. We're waiting to see if Iran lets anyone build a church near Ground Zero in Teheran after next week.
Iran celebrated its armed forces day Sunday by unveiling its first unmanned drone bomber that travels six hundred miles. The Iranian government named the drone the Ambassador of Death. So it proves that Iran has diplomatic relations with someone.
The Boston Herald ripped President Obama for playing golf Sunday and not going to church on Martha's Vineyard. The island was originally a Methodist spiritual retreat. That means a golf course was there a hundred years before the church arrived.
President Obama couldn't swim on Monday because the coastal water is contamination by fecal matter. A president of the United States shouldn't have to swim through fecal matter. The whole idea of a vacation is to escape from your day-to-day office routine.
The Justice Department started advertising Monday for linguists who are fluent in Ebonics to listen in on federally authorized wiretaps. Ebonics is described by scholars as Black English. Investigators were troubled when they realized they can't tell whether a Congressional Black Caucus member is ordering a cover-up or a pizza.
The TSA began giving enhanced palm-forward patdowns to passengers at Las Vegas airport Monday. They get you both ways. The patdowns going into Vegas are to prepare you for having sex with strangers and the patdowns leaving Vegas are for loose change.
The Robert F Kennedy High school is set to open in Los Angeles this month. The five hundred million dollar complex is located at the old Ambassador Hotel where Bobby Kennedy was slain. This being Los Angeles, they were going to name it Marilyn Monroe's Lover High School, but they couldn't get the rights to the name from her estate.
