When the Pope announced this morning that he was resigning, he mentioned that he could no longer lead given "the pressures of spiritual leadership in the modern world."
<span class="floatleft"><img src="http://www.progressive.org/images/staff/will-d.jpg" width="54"></span>Political comic Will Durst has a new book out, “The All-American Sport of Bipartisan Bashing,” available from Ulysses Press. A Midwestern baby boomer with a media- induced identity crisis, Durst, according to the <i>New York Times</i> is “quite possibly the best political satirist working in the country today.” This equal opportunity offender is exceptionally adept at swatting both partisan political piñatas upside their heads. <br><a href="http://www.willdurst.com">Website</a> | <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww... and CDs</a> | <a href="taxonomy/term/1">Daily Dose of Durst</a>

WHAT YOU NEED TO PLAY:
•4 taxpayers: 1 white Wall Street type in full suit and yellow power tie, (MBA Guy) 2 ordinary folks sporting jeans, 1 in blue work shirt, other in white shirt, (the Jeans) and 1 person wearing clothes that look like they were used for floor covering at a tire changing shop for a minimum of three months. Belt, shoelaces, socks and underwear confiscated. (Rags)
Except for MBA Guy, game is non- gender or race specific.
•1 large screen HDTV tuned to speech. 42” or larger. Game played behind coffee table 3’ away.
Maybe Obama should have let the NSA handle healthcare.gov. After all, they have all our information and probably know which plan best fits.
Wishing you all a Very Happy Merry.
For Tiger Woods. A marriage mulligan.
For Hall & Oates. Another 500 or so casinos in Las Vegas so Cirque du Soleil finally gets around to doing a show based on them.
For Barack Obama. A reset switch for his Presidency.
For Joe Biden. Since his foot spends so much time in his mouth, mint-flavored shoelaces.
For Sarah Palin’s Publisher. More best sellers targeted to people who don’t read. Maybe an “audio book for the deaf” division. Cookbooks for Supermodels.
10. Governor Mark Sanford (R- SC) and Senator John Ensign (R- Nev) both found to have a bit of a problem in the monogamy department. The GOP breathes a sigh of relief that at least they were caught with women.
9. Beer Summit. Resolution sounded like the set up for a joke. A professor, a cop and a president walk into a bar. Because as we all know, beer fixes racism.
8. Swine Flu. To keep from defaming our proud American factory pig farms, government attempts to change name to SOIV: Swine Originated Influenza Virus. Fails to catch on.
Citizens of America, stay in your homes. The Minority leadership unleashed their legions of virtual undead to battle the White House’s economic stimulus package with a soul sapping single- mindedness and they’re still out there.
It might have been the shortest honeymoon this side of a drunken Britney Spears careening off of quarter poker video games in Vegas. I’m talking about Barack Obama’s relationship with the press after his Inauguration as the 44th President of the United States.
The Oval Office bonding picture is destined to become as iconic as that Vegas snapshot of the Rat Pack outside the Sands that people regularly Photoshop themselves into.
Okay. Other stuff might have had a bigger impact on America and the world, such as an African American guy whose middle name is Hussein winning the Presidency of the United States.
Well, now we know why she was nicknamed Sarah Barracuda.
(two guys at the bar) “I like the idea of a hockey mom. Kind of like a soccer mom with sharpened steel and a big stick.”
Tonight will determine if Sarah Palin’s Vice Presidential nod is unraveling like an old wool sweater during a brisk walk through a bramble patch.
The Focus on the Family prayed for a storm of biblical proportions to disrupt Barack Obama’s outdoor acceptance speech, and bless their little hearts, they got one.
