CNN’s Ali Velshi Gets Punked On Air!

Poor Ali Velshi. When he was giving weather updates today,he talked to a caller who identified himself as Gene Laster of Newark Liberty Airport. The caller was supposed to be talking to Ali about how the severe weather has shut down the Newark Airport. About a minute into the conversation,Gene Laster calls Ali a dumb ass on air. Why? Well,Gene Laster says that Ali Velshi should have known that he was the recipient of a prank call.Because the Newark Airport was never closed.

After that, Ali said,”Good one,Gene.”

Then,he went on with the rest of the broadcast without incident. What,a funny & crazy CNN moment.

Scott Brown & President Obama Are Related

Wow, the things that genealogy can uncover is truly amazing. A genealogist has discovered that newly elected Massachusetts governor Scott Brown & our illustrious president Barack Obama are actually related. Now, I can’t see any physical resemblances between these 10th cousins.The only family trait that these cousins share are their spectacularly great looks. They also have made their mark in politics.

I wonder how they feel about being distant cousins. Kinda weird,isn’t it?

Here’s more from The Wall Street Journal:

President Barack Obama can add a new name to the list of things he calls Scott Brown: cousin.

Genealogists at the New England Historic Genealogical Society said today that the president and the Republican senator-elect from Massachusetts are 10th cousins. Obama’s mother and Brown’s mother are both descendents of Richard Singletary of Haverhill, Mass., who died in 1687.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.

Contessa Brewer Can’t Tell The Difference Between Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson!

Talk about a cringe worthy moment! When Contessa Brewer of MSNBC interviewed Rev. Jesse Jackson,she called him Rev. Al Sharpton.

Well,Rev. Jackson took about half a minute to correct this pretty little birdbrain.I think he did that because he wanted to keep his composure.But,he was visibly agitated by the ridiculous gaffe that Contessa Brewer made.Who would confuse Jesse Jackson with Rev. Al Sharpton?

After apologizing,Contessa Brewer claimed that was what the script said.I’ve heard of sticking to the script,but wow! Can you really blame the teleprompter for that mistake,Contessa Brewer? I think not!

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee Did Not Have To Take That Call,Ya’ll!

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee is a Texas congresswoman who has made news for all the wrong reasons as of late.First,she wanted to introduce a bill to the House of Representatives that “recognizes Michael Jackson as a global humanitarian.”

Now, Rep. Jackson Lee is being accused of not recognizing her constituents.During a town hall meeting on health care,a cancer survivor asked Rep Jackson Lee a question that went unanswered.Why is that,you ask? Rep. Jackson Lee was talking to someone on her cell phone!

Since many who are in the political stratosphere are being branded as “elitists“,I do not think it was wise of her to even appear to be ignoring any of her constituents.Rep. Jackson Lee really did not have to take that call,ya’ll!And,now,I think that she realizes that!

Instead of doing interviews that make the situation even worse,Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee should have issued an apology in the form of a written statement. That would have nipped the controversy right in the bud!

Hillary Clinton: “My Husband Is Not Secretary Of State,I Am”

Hillary Clinton is a proven spitfire.You could almost see the flames coming out of her mouth when a student asked a question she didn’t like during her visit in the Congo.

Here’s what caused Hillary Clinton to lose some of her composure from The Telegraph:

Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, has snapped at a Congolese university student after, as she heard it, he asked what her husband thought about an international financial matter.

“My husband is not secretary of state, I am,” she said. “I am not going to be channelling my husband.”

Mrs Clinton was speaking in Kinshasa during a seven-nation trip through Africa.

“You want me to tell you what my husband thinks?” she asked incredulously when the student raised a question about a multibillion-dollar Chinese loan offer to Congo.

“If you want my opinion, I will tell you my opinion,” she said. “I am not going to be channelling my husband.”

The moderator quickly moved on.

State Department officials said the student approached Mrs Clinton afterward and told her he had meant to ask what Mr Obama, not Bill Clinton, thought about the Chinese loan. A senior Clinton aide said that Mrs Clinton assured the student not to worry about it.

The question, according to the State Department translation, went like this:

“Thank you. Mrs Clinton, we’ve all heard about the Chinese contracts in this country. The interference is from the World Bank against this contract. What does Mr. Clinton think through the mouth of Mrs. Clinton and what does Mr. Mutombo think on this situation? Thank you very much.”

It was unclear whether the French-speaking student or translator had erred. Either way, she was not pleased at the mention of her husband’s name.Mrs Clinton quickly recovered her cool and moved on to other subjects.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.

PETA Tells The President How To Relocate A Fly Instead Of Killing It!

070306_salvoad

During an interview with CNBC,President Obama killed a fly with his bare hands.The interviewer,John Harwood,laughed & said nice.” But,PETA didn’t think it was “nice” for Obama to end a poor fly’s life.And they are speaking out about it.

I know that they have more worthy causes that deserve attention than the death of a fly.They should have kept their silence on this one.

Here’s more from The AP:

“The group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants the flyswatter in chief to try taking a more humane attitude the next time he’s bedeviled by a fly in the White House.

PETA is sending President Barack Obama a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside.

“We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least sympathetic animals,” PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich said Wednesday. “We believe that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals.” (End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.

Joe Biden Told His Family To Stay Out Of “Confined Places” Because Of The Swine Flu Outbreak!

Personally,I’m glad that there are people in government who really say what they feel.So,I did not take issue with Joe Biden when he said he really wouldn’t take public transportation right now on The Today Show.Heck,what’s wrong with being overcautious?Nothing at all!

But,Joe Biden is getting some serious heat for telling America that he is really airing on the side of caution.At least,that’s how I took it.Others feel like Joe Biden’s latest “gaffe” was almost akin to “fear-mongering.” Here’s more from ABC News:

Democrats hustled to temper Vice President Joe Biden’s comments today that he would advise his family to avoid flying or being in confined spaces because of concerns about swine flu, a comment that drew criticism from the travel industry.

At a news conference Wednesday evening, President Obama said Americans who may be sick should avoid airplanes and “any system of public transportation where you’re confined,” but the vice president today took it one step further.

“I would tell members of my family — and I have — I wouldn’t go anywhere in confined places now. It’s not that it’s going to Mexico in a confined aircraft where one person sneezes, that goes all the way through the aircraft,” Biden said on NBC’s “Today” show.

That’s me,” he said.

“I would not be, at this point, if they had another way of transportation, suggesting they ride the subway,” he said.

“From my perspective, this relates to mitigation. If you’re out in the middle of the field and someone sneezes, that’s one thing. If you’re in a closed aircraft, a closed container, a closed car, a closed classroom, that’s another thing.”

Biden’s comments came just hours before the White House announced that a Department of Energy official who had traveled to Mexico City with Secretary Energy Chu exhibited flu-like symptoms upon his return, but tested negative for the swine flu. However, his wife, son and nephew tested positive for the virus, and have now recovered.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.

There Was A Runaway Bull Caught On Camera In An Irish Supermarket!

America has had its share of crazy animal mishaps.Remember the three deer that ran amok at the Beer Arena in Greensburg, Pennsylvania last month?But,the raging bull caught on camera running through the aisles of Cummins’ SuperValu in Ireland really takes the cake! I got a much needed chuckle out of that one!

Apparently,the bull had escaped from a nearby cattle market.But,his owner was not far behind & he was the one who captured the escapee! No one was hurt & the store owner got a good laugh out of it too! He says the store takes pride in their fresh meat.

It’s unbelievable, you know. It’s not everyday a shop has beef as fresh as that,”says the owner,John Cummins.
