Sinking Fast: By the time we send Al Gore to the White House it’s gonna be underwater.
Israel vs Gaza: It’s beginning to look a lot like… gee, armageddon. Oh, and Israel arrests Hamas leaders—you know, those guys that just won a democratic election? Those guys, the ones bent on the destruction of Israel.

Headline of the Day: “Bear Flees for 2nd Time Before Neutering.” Can you blame him?
Starjonesgate: Wait a minute—they fired her ass twice?
