What Glenn Blechhh said to Princess Sarah Palin:
BECK: I have to tell you that every time I bring up your name and somebody says who’s out there? I answer one of two ways. I’m waiting for George Washington to appear. Then it’s usually followed by your name. And I said, but I don’t know. And it’s not I don’t know, I don’t know if you’re smart enough. I find this insulting. Your kids must find that extraordinarily insulting when they hear that. It’s not that you’re not capable or anything else. I don’t know. I don’t know. I can’t give my trust out to anybody anymore. Every time you do, they burn you. Every time you’re like oh!

And then Princess Sarah said:
Oh, kids! Didya see it? Of course, I am talking about The New Yorker magazine cover! From ABC News:
The sophisticates at The New Yorker have come up with a cover that is sure to get the magazine a lot of attention. Negative attention. From their friends.
An illustration by Barry Blitt depicts Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., and his wife Michelle in the Oval Office, revealing their “true” selves: Michelle is in full revolutionary garb, an enormous afro making her look like a millennial Angela Davis, holding an automatic weapon and wearing military pants.
In the cartoon Michelle is giving dap, or fist-bumping, with her husband who is wearing a turban and is dressed in garb perhaps more appropriate for a madrassa in Lahore than the Oval Office.
A painting of Osama bin Laden hangs above the fireplace, where the American flag is being burned.
Well, you know me, kids! I am always here to help out! I don’t want the people at The New Yorker working too hard. In the spirit of fairness, I thought Captain Underpants and his
botoxed recipe stealing Stepford lovely wife, Cindy Lou, should have a super-cool cover, too, so I created one! Hey, The New Yorker! You have my permission to use this one….

From Wilstar Greetings:
Unlike most of the other nonfoolish holidays, the history of April Fool’s Day, sometimes called All Fool’s Day, is not totally clear. There really wasn’t a “first April Fool’s Day” that can be pinpointed on the calendar. Some believe it sort of evolved simultaneously in several cultures at the same time, from celebrations involving the first day of spring.
It’s better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open it and leave no doubt. –Mark Twain

From Ellis Henican at Newsday:
All that’s left is the rock and roll.
Sex? Drugs? What else can David Paterson cop to now? That he played guitar in a garage band when he was growing up in Hempstead?
