From 44 at The Washington Post:
A holiday hoops outing with friends and family on Friday turned a bit rough for President Obama, who ended the game with a visit to the White House Medical Unit for a dozen stitches in his lip.
“It’ll never stand up on appeal,” a defiant but obviously shaken Tom DeLay told reporters moments after his recent conviction for money laundering and conspiracy. […] DeLay’s crime ripped a hole in Texas democracy. It’s serious. His conviction carries a penalty of up to life in prison, though no one really expects him to do hard time. As a politician, however, he’s deader than a truck-squashed armadillo.
DeLay spent his early life as an exterminator. He entered local politics in 1978, eventually rising to become Republican House Majority Leader and earning the nickname, “The Hammer.” In 2005 he resigned in disgrace after close ties to another politics felon, Jack Abramoff, and after this set of charges was filed. He has pompously proclaimed his innocence ever since, while quietly using trick after trick in a cowardly attempt to put off the trial.
Yesterday, we looked to Lindseypoo Graham to inspire us to lose all that weight we gained from eating all that good stuff over the last week. I thought we’d look at Lindseypoo over the years to see how he got to be where he is now.
Lindseypoo has always been a fashion-plate, even when he was just a baby…
Well, kids, we spent all week eating and drinking, and I don’t know about you, but I feel bloated as all get-out. I just put in some time on the treadmill, because I want to be able to fit in the latest stylish fashions. I thought we could all use a little inspiration so we can stay on our diets and continue with our work-out routines. What better inspiration could there be than the person who wears clothes so well. I give you…Lindseypoo!
I ask you, who else could pull off a look like this?
Anyone else would look hippy!
