Sometimes the news makes me laugh

Sometimes the news makes me laugh. Sometimes it's a quiet chuckle. Other times it's a rib tickler. I laugh so hard I have tears running down my cheek. Here are two side splitters from my point of view.

The Governor of Illinois was arrested by the FBI. Shocking! Everybody knows Illinois politicians are above reproach. Richard Daly...icon. Richard Daly Jr....Salt of the earth. Jimmie Hoffa...God's gift to labor. Blagojevich...uh..hmm...Flaming idiot. Allegedly somebody told him he was being bugged but he went ahead anyway and tried to sell Obama's vacated Senate seat. Oh, and he tried to extort $500,00 from a children's hospital before he would sign a bill giving the hospital funds for expansion. A CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL! I also understand that a major highway reconstruction project was being sold for campaign funds to be deposited. What's funny is that he really was being bugged and recorded by the Justice Department. The side splitter is that he maintains that he did nothing wrong. Illinois politicians...ya gotta love 'em.

Another chuckle.

It snowed in Beaumont Texas. It snowed in New Orleans. Record low temperatures all throughout the south. Crank up the air conditioner it's GLOBAL WARMING!

I don't know a whole lot about this case - just bits and pieces seen on the news. But, I will say that Aaron and I both agreed that the man didn't have to say much to reveal that he was basically a slime. Not a very bright slime, apparantly, but a slime nonetheless.

I won't say anything about the global warming bit- as our views tend to differ on this topic - but the man is a slime! :)
