The News in Zingers

By Argus Hamilton

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | The State Department closed U.S. embassies in the Middle East due to a threat from al-Qaeda cells. Reaction was furious. The INS is so mad at al-Qaeda they threatened to revoke their student visas so they'll never complete pilot school in time for the Super Bowl.

Illinois became the twentieth state in the Union Friday to legalize the medical use of marijuana. The law sets up state-run pot dispensaries statewide. They think it might cut down on the murder rate in Chicago if no one can remember where they left their gun .

Sports Illustrated says San Diego Chargers rookie linebacker Mante Teo has wowed coaches and players in training camp. The fans love him. Mante Teo has become so popular in San Diego that San Diego's mayor is now sexually harassing imaginary women.

Mayor Bob Filner said he had no sex harassment seminars to teach him that groping is wrong. He means well. The mayor makes good progress resisting the urge to grope women at work and then Mad Men comes back on the air every July and triggers a setback.

Philadelphia Eagles player Wiley Cooper apologized for his racial slur on a black bouncer at a country music concert in Philly stadium. The producers share the blame. They thought that they'd save money by color-coding the security guards instead of the backstage badges.

U.S. Rep Jim McDermott likened this fall's battle to fund ObamaCare to Gettysburg on Friday. He said the GOP is the doomed Rebel army. The difference is, this time Pickett's Charge includes the ten thousand dollar deductible for Pickett's Hip Replacement Surgery.

NSA leaker Edward Snowden was granted asylum in Russia Thursday. It did cost him some dignity. Ed Snowden was allowed to stay in Russia only after agreeing to pose for photographers next to a shirtless Vladimir Putin, who held him upside down like a big fish.

Swedish women took off their tops and stormed the Russian Embassy in Stockholm to protest Russia's new anti-gay laws, They could affect the Winter Games. To ensure straight behavior on the ice, the Olympic male skating competition could include gunfights.

Seattle told city workers to stop using the word citizen and use the word resident to accommodate illegal aliens. That's as far north as they can survive. An illegal alien once made it into Canada but he sprained his ankle and was buried by paperwork at the hospital.

Congress billed the taxpayers to fund health care insurance for themselves and their staffs Friday. It gets them out of ObamaCare. Not only do average Americans pick up the cost of House members' health care, all death-panel rulings apply to randomly-selected taxpayers.

The U.S. Senate had calls by both parties for the NSA to stop data-mining every phone call in the U.S. Thursday. It really looks bad. There are now sixteen satellite dishes on top of the White House and nobody believes President Obama's story that it's just for ESPN.

Al-Qaeda vowed to free the prisoners jailed at Guantanamo Friday. Why would they leave a tropical palace with central air, a library, free health care, Internet and cable TV? Place some sheep on the soccer field and they'd think they were on Temptation Island.

The London Telegraph reports the Benghazi attack last year masked a CIA weapons supply operation to the rebels in Syria. They call themselves the Syrian Alliance. If you don't know who the Syrian Alliance is, they're our allies who we will be fighting next year.
