And now for the important news ....

GOP House Minority Leader John Boehner was targeted by the New York Times with an adultery probe Friday. It could affect the November elections. The Republicans have had so many sex scandals in the past year they're starting to attract Democratic voters.
Iran threatened to close the Persian Gulf to U.S. and British shipping Friday and drive up world oil prices. This time we're ready for them. That's why hybrid cars are becoming so popular in America, they only finance terrorism when they're going uphill.
President Obama was invited to a meeting of all Nobel Peace Prize winners this November in Japan. Of all the awards in the world, it's the most prestigious and the most highly publicized. People in Los Angeles would kill for a Nobel Peace Prize.
White House chief economic adviser Larry Summers left the administration Friday to return to Harvard and teach. He said he wants to mold young minds. If he does for Harvard what he did for the economy, they will lose every game to China for the next twenty years.
President Obama's approval rating hit the lowest point of his presidency Friday at forty-two percent in the Gallup Poll. He looks mauled. All presidents come riding into office on the back of a horse and after two years, all that's left is the back of the horse.
President Obama was urged by environmentalists Friday to maintain his offshore drilling ban. They don't care about the economy. Environmentalists believe in their hearts that President Obama can restore this country to what it once was, an Arctic region covered with ice.
U.S. Rep. Loretta Sanchez of Orange County told Spanish TV that the Vietnamese and the Republicans are trying to steal her seat. That's progress for you. Fourteen years ago her GOP opponent Bob Dornan said the Democrats and the Mexicans were trying to steal his seat.
Jimmy Carter went on CNN Thursday and recalled his human rights campaign when he was president back in the Seventies. It didn't work out like he planned. He never foresaw the day that it would be harder to get into the United States than it was to get out of the Soviet Union.
