And now for the important news ....
By Argus Hamilton
Rafael Palmiero was cleared of perjury charges by Congress
Friday. He denied taking steroids, then tested positive. Congress
wanted to press charges but it turns out that everybody ever
connected to the Texas Rangers is immune from prosecution.
John Kerry just happened to be in New Hampshire Sunday while
John Edwards renounced his war vote in a Washington Post column.
Tom Daschle was shaking hands in Iowa while Hillary Clinton was
touring Israel. If they had started campaigning for president any
earlier they would be running against Lincoln.
Bill and Hillary Clinton visited the bombed-out Radisson
hotel in Jordan Sunday. They squeezed hands as they walked over a
blood-stained carpet littered with broken glass and silverware. It
reminded them so much of their very first home in Arkansas.
Jordanian television broadcast the confession of a wife who
tried and failed to blow herself up. Her suicide belt failed to
explode and she was arrested as she fled the scene. She faces life
imprisonment for showing ankle in a public place.
Condoleezza Rice was in Jerusalem Sunday and she denounced
Iran for threatening in late October to wipe Israel off the map.
That only took two weeks. The White House must have gotten a
report saying someday cars might be able to run on oranges.
Medicare recipients face a deadline today to enroll in a prescription drug plan. The options are incredibly confusing. The telephone help lines are so jammed that India has reached full employment for the first time in its three-thousand-year history.
