Earmarks Redux & Other Notes

If you missed my column earlier this week about the 1,776 defense bill earmarks and are crunched for time, there’s a slightly scaled down version in today’s Lansing State Journal.

Today I’m taking the crew to Michigan’s Adventure for a little water park/rollercoaster R & R, so I’ll make just a couple quick notes and be on my way:

—The “cleavage” trend in the Senate, started by Ted Kennedy years ago and recently brought back by Hillary, is further catching on. Now Drudge is saying that Nancy Pelosi’s doing it too — though I have a feeling that Nancy had another facelift and those are in fact butt cheeks that have been yanked up to the top of her shirt.

—On the “conspiracy” subject, talk host Michael Savage wonders if the left had something to do with Chief Justice John Roberts’ seizure and fall. My own theory is that Roberts saw a picture of Hillary’s cleavage and, well, you know the rest.

—Elton John thinks the internet is responsible for slipping standards in the music world. Oh come on, everybody knows it’s MTV’s fault.

—Last night I was watching news coverage of the bridge collapse in Minnesota, and as people were still trapped and rescuers were still hard at work, some of the discussion revolved around exactly who was going to be sued for the tragedy. That piece of premature lunacy led me to this thought: In this day and age, all personal injury attorneys should be trained in rescue and life-saving techniques, since they’re often the first on the scene.

It’s time to grab the #50 spf “liquid shirt” and hit the park. Have a good day all!
