In six years as a member of the Wal-Mart board of directors, between 1986 and 1992, Hillary Clinton remained silent as the world's largest retailer waged a major campaign against labor unions seeking to represent store workers.
Clinton, who joked about having two left feet, shook her hips and did a little shimmy. She then gave Belvis a big high five, sparking applause from the crowd of mostly African-American long-time Clinton supporters.Aaaaaghhh.... need a mind bleach to get that out of my head!

I've known about this for awhile, but just recently remembered that it comes out in April. Shine A Light....a Stones concert film done by Martin Scorsese. This is a no-brainer, a "lets get the band back together" type event. Anyway, here's the trailer. Feel free to use this. The only thing better than this would be a nude pictorial featuring both swimsuit model Marissa Miller and Scarlett Johansen...
A reporter from TV Azteca named Ines Gomez Mont showed up to media day in a wedding gown with the intention of asking Tom Brady to marry her. Holding up a T-shirt that read "The Real Mrs. Brady," she finally popped the question.No word on if Eli is taking her up on the offer as well - or plans on playing the field.
"Wow! I've never had a proposal," said Brady.
Mont shouted, "But I'm the real Mrs. Brady."
In a rare unscripted moment, Brady shot back, "I've got a few Mrs. Brady's in my life."
Quickly catching himself, Brady added, "I'm a one-woman man."

Bill Clinton, the man known as The Big Dog, (lol, what?) growled his way to a large share of media coverage last week on the campaign trail, behind only his wife and Barack Obama and ahead of any Republican. (PEJ)

Robert Novak is spreading a rumor that John Edwards would land the attorney general post in an Obama administration, according to syndicated columnist - let me stress once more - by Robert Novak.
“Installation at the Justice Department of multimillionaire trial lawyer Edwards would please not only the union leaders supporting him for president, but organized labor in general,” Novak pulls out of his ass.
“The unions relish the prospect of an unequivocal labor partisan as the nation’s top legal officer.”
Stopped reading after, "An Inside Report by Robert Novak". I only bring it up again because I keep seeing it on the interwebs - and Novak should be fired. Not because he's wrong, but because he's wrong.
I can make sh*t up too. It's more fun to yell and scream about the stupid stuff going on out there.

Sen. John McCain told a crowd of supporters on Sunday,
I do not disagree with him- as I'm sitting here just counting the minutes until I'm up watching CNN 24/7 in 2008 for the end of the Iranian/Arab/Israeli/U.S. ceasefire...
"It's a tough war we're in. It's not going to be over right away. There's going to be other wars. I'm sorry to tell you, there's going to be other wars. We will never surrender but there will be other wars."
"And right now - we're gonna have a lot of PTSD [post traumatic stress disorder] to treat, my friends, we're gonna have a lot of combat wounds that have to do with these terrible explosive IEDs that inflict such severe wounds. And my friends, it's gonna be tough, we're gonna have a lot to do."
I'm not going to discount his American Imperialistic policies, including the expansion of the Monroe Doctrine to include all of Latin America. However, I will point out that Roosevelt was more of a peace-keeper than an a war-monger. He gained international praise for helping negotiate the end of the Russo-Japanese War, for which he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Roosevelt later arbitrated a dispute between France and Germany over the division of Morocco. Some historians have argued these latter two actions helped to avert a World War.

General Mohammad Ali Jaafari, commander of the Iran's Revolutionary Guards, told Al-Jazeera television that it is Iran's "natural right to respond" if attacked by land or air.
But he assured Arab Gulf countries (some of whom are home to U.S. military bases) that only American forces would come under counterattack. Uh, if you're going to hit U.S. bases on someone's sovern soil - wouldn't that also be construed as an attack on the land that has a base on it? I mean, I hate to get technical here on you, General, but uh, aren't you saying you're gonna start firing a shotgun in the Middle East Mall?
"We realize that there is worry among neighboring countries, Muslim countries whose lands host U.S. military stations," Jaafari said. "However, if the U.S. launches a war against us, and if it uses these stations to attack Iran with missiles, then through the strength and precision of our own missiles, we are capable of targeting only the U.S. military forces who attack us," he told the station. Uh, yeah, wasn't this the guy who also said that they had stealth torpedoes and invisibility cloaks?
The U.S. has military bases in the following Arab countries: Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Yemen. These countries also aren't big fans of Iran or Iranian views of Muhammad.
Here’s my question to you: If the Democrats have trouble picking between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, should Al Gore consider entering the race?Wha-wha-what?
-his political persona has taken on several more iterations since then. Those changes -- from a moderate New Democrat to a liberal populist -- have left many in the party confused about just what Gore really believes and fearful that any attempt by him to re-emerge on the national scene would be met with regular and repeated taunts of flip-flopping by Republicans. (Washington Post.com)Other than that, he'd be a shoe in!

And OneF called it
Clinton will steal -er, could stake claim, yes, that's more legal - to nearly all those delegates to the convention -- which will be more than 350.
Against good taste and party official orders, The Hill was the only candidate on the Democratic ballot in Michigan and holds a strong lead in Florida, which happens to have some kind of contest on Tuesday.
Again, the national party eliminated the delegates from Michigan and Florida because the states broke party rules by holding primary voting contests before February 5. Amazingly, just four days before Florida's primary, Clinton said she wants the delegates reinstated.
I never said that The Hill didn't have brass balls. Her slight of hand dirty tricks further illustrates how she will govern if no one stands up to her now.I don't even have to talk about Jim McDougal or Whitewater, or Vince Foster, or Waco, or Janet Reno, or Ruby Ridge, or no response to the first WTC Bombing, or covering-up Flight 800, or leaving Somalia because of Blackhawk Down, or the lies - cover-up - lies and also lies throughout all of of Monicagate, Wag the Dog rather than commitment in Bosnia and Iraq , or Wal-Mart and China, Clinton and China, China and Al Gore...

The Clinton strategy of marginalising Barack Obama as an African-American candidate showed signs of success on the eve of today's Democratic primary in South Carolina.
Polls suggest Obama is in line to add South Carolina to his win in Iowa, but they also show a sharp drop in his support from white voters, undermining his claim to a leadership that transcends race.
A repeat of this pattern in the 22 primaries on Super Tuesday, February 5, would see Clinton come out on top.
That rating may be peculiar to South Carolina, with its history of racism, but it is a worrying trend for a candidate who spent all of last year trying to avoid race.
Obama, asked by a reporter on the campaign trail in South Carolina on Thursday if he feared the Clintons were trying to pigeonhole him as the black candidate, said he had run his campaign and public career "based on the idea that we're all in it together, and that black, white, Hispanic, Asian, all of us share common dreams, common fears, and common concerns".
That approach, Obama said, won him votes "across the board" in Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada, and will do so elsewhere. "I'll let the Clintons speak to what their strategy is going to be," he said coolly.
The Clinton team pulled a negative radio ad that cast Obama as an admirer of Ronald Reagan after complaints from fellow Democrats about its accuracy.
The Obama team, in response, dropped a negative ad about the Clintons.
But otherwise the bitter and divisive battle for the Democratic nomination continued unabated. In an interview on CBS yesterday morning Clinton conceded that her husband, who has led the personal attacks on Obama, had admitted that "maybe he got a little bit carried away".
But minutes later, on ABC television, she resumed attacking Obama for his links to a Chicago developer, Tony Rezko, who goes on trial for extortion next month.
Despite the hard-fought campaign in South Carolina, the Clinton camp has discounted the state and is concentrating its efforts on Super Tuesday, when 1,700 delegates in 22 states will be at stake.
Clinton, renewed by victories in New Hampshire and Nevada, is more confident on the campaign trail, and has begun to inject more emotion into her speeches.
She received an additional boost yesterday when her hometown newspaper, the New York Times, endorsed her for the Democratic nomination and John McCain for the Republicans.
However, out side of "the act" Al had an anger management issue back in 2004 at a Howard Dean rally in New Hampshire. A LaRouche supporter was giving Howard Dean some shit and Al Franken tackled him. Why he wasn't booked on assault and shunned for violating the heckler's first amendment rights is not known? Perhaps because he was a "celebrity?" I guess?
The story I picked up today was that he acted nutz again on the campaign trail in Northfield MN.
Early this month, on the campaign trail in Northfield, Minn., Franken inexplicably verbally attacked a college student that was himself trying to be as civil and jovial as he could. Apparently, Franken couldn't stomach the fact that student Peter Fritz didn't share his sort of activist, brash politics and for that crime, Franken mercilessly and without provocation launched into the unassuming kid.
C.J., a columnist for the Minn. Star Tribune, reported the tale of Franken's latest explosion of mental instability.
At a student rally held at Carleton College in Northfield, Franken began posing for photos with some of the students gathered there. According to Peter Fritz, the student who was the target of Al's rage, he was taking photos of Franken and his college friends when Franken asked why Frtiz wasn't trying to get into any of the photos himself.
One of Fritz' college pals informed Franken that Fritz was a conservative. This sent Franken off the deep end.
At that point, Franken reportedly began peppering Fritz with questions about supporting President George W. Bush and former President Ronald Reagan's tax hikes. Fritz told me he got tense and, as he does in those situations, started chewing the inside of his mouth, a gesture he said was mimicked by Franken; Fritz also thought his style of speech was mocked by Franken
Apparently, a campaign aide realized that Franken was going over the edge and tried to interrupt and get his patron to move along. With that, student Fritz tried to part as friends. As C.J. reports:
Fritz told me Monday that he then stuck out his hand to shake Franken's. "Well, at least it's nice to meet you," the GOPer said he told Franken, who reportedly replied, I can't say the same.
There was no handshake, said Fritz.
Fritz told me Wednesday he was stunned by Franken's behavior: "I usually expect politicians to, at least, pretend as though, even in that kind of interaction, that they can convince me or have some kind of reasonable dialogue -- the whole Minnesota Nice thing, at least."
Dude. Al? What's up? You gots to shake hands with the electorate, bud. You can't even converse with someone who disagrees with your political positions? How you gonna' get along in the Senate?
And if Democrats think this man is an ideal candidate, what does that say about the Democrat Party?
The story, first published in Modern Woman magazine in 1959, has Bond sent to the Caribbean to sabotage a ship running guns to Castro’s army (an assignment that he takes on reluctantly because he has some sympathy with the Cuban rebels).
In the Bahamas he attends a dull dinner party at the Governor’s Mansion, where the elderly governor tells him a story about a man named Masters who married an air hostess. The marriage started well but soon the wife began a torrid and very public affair with the son of a wealthy island family.
It is at this point that the governor explains his theory: the quantum of solace, he says, is a precise figure defining the comfort, humanity and fellow feeling required between two people for love to survive. If the quantum of solace is nil, then love is dead.
Bond, who understands the limits of love, catches the governor’s meaning at once. When mutual solace falls below a certain point, 007 reflects, “you’ve got to get away to save yourself . . . when the other person not only makes you feel totally insecure, but actually seems to want to destroy you”.
The governor continues his story, describing how Masters left his faithless wife for six months. When he returned she wanted to go back to him. He treated her icily, even dividing their house in half so that they did not need to speak to each another. The quantum of solace had been reduced to nothing.
Quantam of Solace was Fleming’s attempt to write a more serious story, in the manner of Somerset Maugham. But it was also a reflection on his own turbulent marriage, which was troubled by infidelity and periodic coldness.
Fleming’s tale is a brooding study of the emotional realities of colonial life and takes place in one building; not much is likely to be reproduced in the new Bond film. Yet the original does offer flashes of the lighter Bond, including its opening line, in which one of Bond’s less well-known tastes is revealed: “James Bond said, ‘I’ve always thought that if I ever married I would marry an air hostess’.”
Also on the list is a vow to "appoint Mitt Romney secretary of lookin' good" and another to "put Regis on the nickel."
And the No. 1 campaign promise?
"Three words: Vice President Oprah."
Other candidates have been showing up all over late night TV, and apparently John Edwards came on the show and his carefully coifed hair was messed up by the host.
On Thursday, Obama joked that Lettermen couldn't repeat that prank, telling him: "you can't muss my hair."

Click here to listen to the Bikini Girls' new publicity, and a decision to not go any less than their Packers' bikinis if they do a photo shoot with Maxim.
The Bikini Girls may be going to Maxim, but they won't go with less than their bikinis.
Maxim Magazine has contacted three women who, for portions of Packers games they've attended, worn nothing but their bikinis on their bodies.
The girls, Jen and Ashley and their cousin Liz who are all students at UWM, are considering their offer, but they've stated that they won't wear less than the homemade gold bikinis with Packers logos on them.
Jen tells Today's TMJ4 that it started out with a small goal.
"We wanted to get on the jumbo tron and it the coldest game of the season. for sure we thought we'd get on with our swim suits," said Jen.
"It's awesome!" said Jen about the publicity they've received, including national television exposure on Fox during the Packers-Giants NFC Title Game, in which temperatures reached -4.
"We got in the game and our adrenaline took over and all the fans cheering, and we just did it and we weren't cold one bit," claimed Jen.
Inside Edition and the Howard Stern Show have even featured the Bikini Girls, and they're considering marketing their trademark wear.
