Politicians who show off bare chest! RMAN's Skipwaves... news briefs, jokes, stuff ending 6/10

Skip Waves

Cable News still beating up on Anthony Weiner over his bare chest, doing counts of who wants him to resign and who doesn't over his shirtless Twitter photo.  All to keep the ratings builder story alive awhile longer.   Well.  He's in good company.

Yes, that's Ronald Reagan shirtless!  And Putin.  And Obama.  The horror.


 And as promised, the news briefs...talked about all week.  Weiner's bulge.

Fox News: NEW CASTLE, Del. police are investigating direct online communications between Weiner and a 17-year-old girl and are looking for any other young women who may be involved, though the nature of the communications wasn't immediately clear.



Rewriting Science: RUSH writes off MITT!  Mitt Romney thinks there's something to global warming, Rush Limbaugh says Romney's toast for going against the Republican anti-science talking points.  Here's the audio of the whole deal... and its clear....RUSH doesn't think much of Romney.  (audio from liveleak)

And Mitt writes off the Iowa Caucuses!   From his campaign manager:  “Our campaign has made the decision to not participate in any straw polls, whether it’s in Florida, Iowa, Michigan or someplace else. This time we will focus our energies and resources on winning primaries and caucuses.  What does it mean?  Ask Politico's Ben Smith.


Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

Kansas City's famous Westport Katz Drug Store building is to be auctioned in August.  The Star reports "the owner of the former Katz Drugstore building at the corner of Westport Road and Main Street has decided to sell the property at public auction. The familiar art deco building with its iconic clock tower was originally built in 1934 as the first Katz Drug Store outside the central business district."


Chicago State's Attorney Lets Bad Cops Slide, Prosecutes Citizens Who Record Them


A German passenger stripped naked on an Iberia flight from Madrid to Frankfurt, forcing the pilot to turn the plane around so the man could be arrested, the Spanish airline said Friday.

"A German passenger took all his clothes off on the plane" Thursday night, an Iberia spokeswoman said. "Staff on board tried to dissuade him, but he became aggressive and finally locked himself in the toilet. The pilot then decided to turn around and land in Madrid."

The Dead Parrot  (For Golfers!)

At dawn the telephone rings, "Hello, Senor Rod? This is Ernesto, the caretaker at your country house."

"Ah yes, Ernesto. What can I do for you? Is there a problem?"

"Um, I am just calling to advise you, Senor Rod, that your parrot, he is dead".

"My parrot? Dead? The one that won the International competition?"

"Si, Senor, that's the one."

"Damn! That's a pity! I spent a small fortune on that bird. What did he die from?"

"From eating the rotten meat, Senor Rod."

"Rotten meat? Who the hell fed him rotten meat?"

"Nobody, Senor. He ate the meat of the dead horse."

"Dead horse? What dead horse?"

"The thoroughbred, Senor Rod."

"My prize thoroughbred is dead?"

"Yes, Senor Rod, he died from all that work pulling the water cart."

"Are you insane? What water cart?"

"The one we used to put out the fire, Senor."

"Good Lord! What fire are you talking about, man?"

"The one at your house, Senor! A candle fell and the curtains caught on fire."

"What the hell? Are you saying that my mansion is destroyed because of a candle?!"

"Yes, Senor Rod."

"But there's electricity at the house! What was the candle for?"

"For the funeral, Senor Rod."


"Your  wife's, Senor Rod". She showed up very late one night and I thought she was a thief, so I hit her with your new Ping G15 204g titanium head golf club with the TFC 149D graphite shaft."


"Ernesto, if you broke that driver, you're in deep shit."
