I Don’t Believe It

Rappers committing crimes? Say it isn’t so.

PHOENIX —  Rapper DMX was sentenced to 90 days in jail Friday for convictions of theft, drug-possession and animal-cruelty charges.

DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, also was placed on at least 18 months’ supervised probation by Maricopa County Superior Court Commissioner Phemonia Miller.

What is the world coming to?

How does she know this?

Say What You Want About George Bush

But at least he never had to be rushed to the hospital after being attacked… by a poodle.

Former French president Jacques Chirac was rushed to hospital after being mauled by his own ‘clinically depressed’ pet dog.

The 76-year-old statesman was savaged by his white Maltese dog – which suffers from frenzied fits and is being treated with anti-depressants.

The animal, named Sumo, had become increasingly violent over the past years and was prone to making ‘vicious, unprovoked attacks’, Chirac’s wife Bernadette said.

There are so many French jokes there, I don’t even know where to begin.

Thank You, President Bush

They Finally Admit It

I didn’t think the MSM would ever run a story about how much the upcoming inauguration is costing the taxpayers in this shaky economy. But they did.

The price tag for President-elect Barack Obama’s inauguration gala is expected to break records, with some estimates reaching as high as $150 million.

If this were Bush spending $150 million on an inauguration in a time of war with the stock market down, unemployment up, and and a recession underway, the MSM would be putting out stories daily, maybe even hourly, about what a waste of money it was, and wondering how many poor people could have been fed with that $150 million.

But instead, we get concerts by U2, Springsteen, Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Sheryl Crow, etc. This sentence seems to sum it up:

Democrats who called on President George W. Bush to be frugal four years ago are issuing no such demands now that an inaugural weekend of rock concerts and star-studded parties has begun.

Oh, the hypocrisy.

That Is Just No Way To Die

I can think of about 1000 other ways I’d rather go.

An Australian woman accused of setting her husband’s genitals on fire because she thought he was having an affair has been charged with murder.

Prosecutors said 44-year-old Rajini Narayan confessed to neighbors that she set her husband on fire on Dec. 8, 2008, after she saw him hug another woman.

She was initially charged with endangering life and arson but the charges were upgraded to murder after her 47-year-old husband, Satish Narayan, died from his injuries last week.

Wow, that’s just nuts.
