Tomorrow, President Bush will undergo a routine colonoscopy. The medical procedure will require him to be under anesthesia. So, the President will utilize the 25th ammendment to the Constitution and Dick Cheney will assume the power.

Cheney will remain in power till Bush is no longer the influence of the anesthesia. That should be in a few hours after the power has been transferred.

I imagine that people in the business of comedy right now are enjoying the bonanza. This story alone has t...

He was a perennial starting quarterback in the NFL. He had endorsements that other players envy. He was truly one of the NFL's most exciting players. He got "the cover" of the most popular sports videogame franchises ever. As the old cliche goes, women wanted him and men wanted to be him. Michael Vick had it all.

So, last year, when Vick was busted in an airport for possession of a small amount of pot, most people were left wondering, "what is this guy thinking?" Even if someone doesn't hav...

This afternoon, it was announced that Amy Polumbo, Miss New Jersey, will indeed keep her crown despite the efforts of an annonymous coward who threatened her and the title she had earned. Miss Polumbo should serve as an example to others who are the victims of a cold hearted coward that tries to use blackmail to achieve their means.

What she did was not back down. While i'm sure law enforcement was busy looking into the matter, the best thing she did was stand up, and put the photos that she...

This week, Judge Pearson walked out of court with nothing. He wasn't reimbursed in any way, and justice for the Korean couple who ran the dry cleaners he sued was served.

Judge Pearson was one of those unreasonable customers all of us who have ever had the pleasure of dealing with customers occasionally run into. The customer who is wrong and trying to bully their way over you.

Those customers are usually obvious. They yell, they threaten, they make outlandish claims about their personal p...

This is the 2nd part of a brief "good, bad and ugly" analysis of each of the 2 major party's field of contenders. This time, we look at the Democrats.

Hillary Clinton

The Good - About as big of a success story and "living the dream" as any woman could be an example of. Mother, wife, professional, 1st lady and Senator. Hillary has definitely done it all.

The Bad - The public may just be tired of a Bush or Clinton on the ballot since 1980.

The Ugly - Has one of the most well-oiled an...

Today, it was reported that a "tearful" Dennis Nifong will resign as DA. It's about time. Months ago, when ethics charges were finally formally brought onto Nifong, I wrote how maybe justice might be finally on it's way to being done in this case. Today's resignation, combined with stirring testimony from one of Nifong's victims, were a step in that direction.

Nifong should have resigned a long time ago, and I truly hope the North Carolina bar takes away his liscense. What he did in using the...

About 5 minutes ago, my son called me from my desk. He was yelling from our pool out back, "daddy, daddy, look at those 2 planes up there!" When I got out there, I looked up and saw 2 big jets. I'm guessin coming out of Philadelphia International. Could have been BWI or lil ol New Castle's airport, but i'm thinkin Philly, based on the direction and all.

The 1 jet was almost sideways, veering off to it's side. the other was veering slightly the other way. And they were pretty high up in the s...

Today, former Chief of Staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, Scooter Libby, was sentenced to 30 months in prison. He was convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice earlier this year. His lawyers have stated they will appeal the conviction.

In the meantime, the judge in the case is considering whether or not to demand that Libby serve his time immediately, or be able to be free while pending appeal. A 3rd option would have him report in 60 days. Comments by the judge in the court regarding...

Last Night, the 2nd debate for the Democrats took place, this time on CNN. It was the 4th debate overall, with the Republicans going at it twice already on MSNBC and Fox. The Democrats chose to skip Fox's offer for a debate last month.

This production wasn't quite as slick as Fox's, but like the NFL on CBS, it had it's own charm. CNN chose to go back to the "no-applause" rule, sticking to a more traditional debate format than Fox, who encouraged applause, something usually not part of a for...

Another departure from the Bush White House today was announced. The President's Counselor, Dan Bartlett announced he would be stepping down. Bartlett assumed that position in January of 2005. He has been working for the Bush team since 1994 when he was involved in Bush's Texas Governor race.

Today, Texas Congressman and Presidential hopeful Ron Paul defended his prior statements about the blunders in US Policy that lead to 9/11 and our disaster in Iraq.

He did so by offering a reading list to Mr Giuliani, who's gaffes this week include claiming President Clinton wanted to go to war with Iraq, but just never got the chance. Someone needs to inform the ex mayor that this is simply not true. And that the 1998 resolution was not about going to war with Iraq but about backing Chalab...

Last night, Keith Olbermann gave one of his special comments. This time, he was not primarily focused on the President or Vice President and their failed Iraq policy, but rather the Democratic Congress folding to the President after recieving a clear mandate last fall from the voters. For those who claim that "all we do is bash the President" should read this. And those who have read some of my past articles and comments on other blogs know that I have been critical of the leadership and called ...

It seems the Attorney General's days may be numbered.

Today, Senator Arlen Spector joined a growing chorus of bi partisan lawmakers calling for the removal or resignation of Alberto Gonzales. He described Gonzales's continued tenure as a threat to our future.

"I have a sense that when we finish our investigation, we may have the conclusion of the tenure of the attorney general," Specter, R-Pa., said during a committee hearing. "I think when our investigation is concluded, it'll be clear ...
