http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Maria Shriver was reported on Sunday to be reconciling with Arnold Schwarzenegger. She had absolutely no idea he was cheating on her with the maid in their bed. The adultery was bad enough but it ruined her reputation at NBC News as a crack investigative reporter.

Ron Paul led the GOP field in one of the Iowa polls Monday with the Iowa caucus just one week away. The former gynecologist has surprised a lot of people. The difference between Ron Paul and Bill Clinton is Ron Paul has taken six thousand babies out of women.
President Obama began his vacation in Hawaii Saturday in a beach-front house he's rented for two weeks. It's listed on the market for six million dollars. Like all houses in Hawaii it has to have a separate circuit breaker for the rice cooker or it's not up to code.
President Obama arrived in Hawaii late after a six-thousand mile flight on Friday. He slept the first night, then he enjoyed a round of golf with unnamed friends and his Secret Service detail. You can't expect him to break his daily work habits the first day of vacation.

This is why the mothers of communist dictators tell their kids to always wear clean underwear in case they get into an arranged car wreck.
