 CHELSEA CLINTON – THE NEXT GENERATION?

In an exclusive interview with Bill Clinton in People Magazine, he’s asked would Chelsea ever consider a career in politics? This leaves some interesting prospects for the future. A Clinton dynasty? Well it’s got to be better than the one the Bush’s have handed us. Clinton had an interesting answer.  “Before Iowa, I would have said, ‘No way. She is too allergic to anything we do.’ But she is really good at it. It all changed after Iowa. She realized her mother lost Iowa 100 percent because of younger voters. She was upset, bawled, went to her employer and said, ‘Look, you got to let me go or give me an indefinite leave of absence. I’m not letting my mother go down like this.'” It appears that Chelsea has some of her mother’s tenacity and getting her mother’s back gets her big time points. Chelsea has been a continuing presence in Hillary’s campaign and has been dealing with some tough questions on some tough issues. In the People interview, Clinton called his daughter’s “emergence” the “second best thing” of the campaign, after his wife’s resiliency. The former President also made a comment about a press bias against Hillary. “I think most of the press people are in Obama’s demographic. They need a feeling more than they perceive they need a President. There have been times when I thought I was literally lost in a fun house.”  I’m not so sure he’s correct there, but he does go on to say about Obama, “I don’t know him very well. But, I do think it’s better to have made a lot of decisions before you get to be President.” This People interview is definately worth a read and it hits newstands today. Could Chelsea get a taste for politics? Could we be seeing the continuation of the Clinton influence on American politics for the future? It sounds awfully Kennedy to me.

NEW CAR DEAL – GUN OR GAS?

At a new car dealership in Butler, Missouri they are offering a bang-up special deal. You can put $250 to either get a new handgun or gas with any purchase through the end of the month. General Manager, Walter Moore of Max Motors says most people are opting for the handgun. He recommends the semi-automatic model because it holds more rounds.  That doesn’t surprise me, with the handgun you can get your gas for free. Moore says, “Down here, we all believe in God, guts and guns.” Well, this IS the state that gave us Frank and Jesse James.

GERMAN GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS LOCKED UP BY ACCIDENT

A group of German officials were locked away in a jail previously run by the East German Stasi, the former secret police. Thinking all visitors had left, staff closed up the memorial museum that was the Stasi’s main jail, and shut the high-ranking representatives from Germany‘s 16 states inside. I bet that brought on some unintentional enlightenment. “It was a misunderstanding,” said Siegfried Reiprich, deputy director of the complex in eastern Berlin, on Wednesday. I’m sure he was hoping that he wouldn’t be fired over the mixup. Realizing they were trapped, the group called the federal Chancellery late on Tuesday and urgently requested to be let out.  About half an hour later the officials were freed from the complex where political opponents of the East German regime were once interrogated by their captors. I wish some of our politicians would “accidentally” get locked away. Then just don’t answer the phone. Anybody up for a trip to Alcatraz?

 BRITISH MAN HAS BARE BUTT POSTERED AROUND TOWN

 Pasha Cummings of Seaford, England is the latest victim of the fury of a woman scorned. According to his recently exited wife, Carol, he had been cheating on her and she decided to get even. She had 200 posters of him printed and then posted all over town on lampposts, bus stops, and walls that shows him and his bare butt posing at a barbeque. I have to admit, that would be something that should come under a blight law. Beneath the ‘glamour shot’, the posters read: ‘Pasha Cummings: lying, cheating, two-timing arse! Sandra Beckworth is no better.’ Sandra is apparently the “other” woman. Carol exited the country for Cyprus immediately upon distribution of the controversial poster. People have come up with the most creative ways to slander each other lately. Youtube, Ebay, now this. They’re certainly being creative. What ever happened to keeping your dirty laundry behind closed doors.

MAN CLAIMS SEX WITH 1000 CARS

Never buy a used car from this man, “used” being the operative word here. Edward Smith has a sexual attraction for mechanical vehicles. I guess they wouldn’t complain if you’re not very good. Smith, 57, says he first had sex with a car at the age of 15 and has banged out the fenders of more than 1000. He claims he has never been attracted to women or men and cars are just his preference. OK, something went seriously wrong here. I’ve heard of having a passion for your cars but, this is a bit over the top. They even have a name for this: mechaphilia. He is now part of a global community of more than 500 “car lovers” brought together through the Internet. Smith, who now lives with his current “girlfriend,” a white Volkswagen Beetle named Vanilla, said he has no desire to change his ways. Of course not, all his desire is aimed at this poor VW’s fender. “I’m not sick,” he said, “And I don’t want to hurt anyone.” That, may be a matter of opinion. If the car doesn’t start, does that mean no? Does he consider Herbie the Love Bug porn? This guy would be a riot at a NASCAR rally.

BARACK OBAMA, BALTIMORE RAVENS, A MILLION PENNIES, AND UNDERWATER CEMETERY

OBAMA TAKING FOCUS OFF CLINTON, BAD MOVE.

Obama seems to think he has things sewed up with the Democrats. Maybe he has and maybe he hasn’t. Yes he’s picked up a few more “superdelegates” but, neither candidate has or can get enough support to actually claim the nomination before the convention. Obama seems to shifting his focus away from Clinton and onto McCain looking to a future he doesn’t have yet. Sort of counting his chickens before they’ve hatched. It shows his inexperience in the political arena. This is alright by me because, I don’t think he can do the job anyway. He’s not experienced. Heck he hasn’t done the job he was originally elected for in Illinois. He’s a good speaker, yes, but this doesn’t equate to good foreign or domestic policy. Rhetoric doesn’t get the job done. Just what we need is another four years of someone screwing up the office of the Presidency. People need to wake up and make him do the job he was elected for in the first place before they give him another one.

BALTIMORE RAVENS BRAWL AT MINICAMP

Well this is quite a way to start out putting your team together, with an onfield fight. We’re not talking just a couple of players, we’re talking the whole team. John Harbaugh, the coach that replaced Brian Billick after nine years, is shrugging the incident off. “Guys are competing, so tempers flare a little bit,” Harbaugh said. Is this some kind of new concept for creating team spirit by beating the crap out of each other? It seems to me that the only threat the Ravens will be in the NFL this year is to each other. They’ll all be on the injured list before season starts. Way to keep those players healthy coach.

 FOURTH-GRADER COLLECTS ONE MILLION PENNIES FOR HIS SCHOOL

Andrew Niemi of Carlton, Michigan has collected one million pennies for his school. He has been collecting them since 2006 and has held fundraisers to make his goal. Last week he presented a $10,000 check to St. Patrick’s School. The money will go towards equipment and school supplies. That’s a lot of copper. Who says pennies don’t add up. Well, this ought to get him the benefit of the doubt on his tests.

UNDERWATER CEMETERY IN FLORIDA

In 45 feet of water, divers have created an underwater cemetery. It’s meant as a final resting place for those that had a passion for the sea. It consists of underwater sculptures and has room for 850 remains. The Neptune Memorial Reef is about 3 1/4 miles of Key Biscayne and is meant as a diver’s attraction as well as a resting place. A person’s ashes are mixed with a special cement and then placed in a mold. A bronze plaque is then attached to a cement sculpture as a memorial creating the underwater pantheon of cement objects for divers.  This is seriously weird. Talk about sleeping with the fishes.
