Yesterday was Groundhog Day. In fact, when the groundhog came out of his hole, he didn’t even look for his shadow, he just said he was walking away from his mortgage.
Well, it happened again. Two Northwest pilots overshot Minneapolis Airport by 500 miles. They weren’t in a plane, they were in a Toyota. It wouldn’t stop.
President Obama has announced his administration’s plan to build a new $8 billion high-speed rail system. Have you ever been on Amtrak? We can’t even figure out how to keep a low-speed rail system from crashing.
ABC News reports that the president of Pakistan slaughters a goat every day since becoming president, in an attempt to ward off the “evil eye.” It’s good to see these modern, progressive people are our allies in the war against terror.
Yesterday, New York City Mayor Bloomberg got in on the Groundhog Day festivities. The mayor is so tiny. He saw the groundhog, threw a saddle on it and rode it up Fifth Ave.
It looks like we’ll have six more weeks of winter now because Rip Torn’s liver saw its shadow.
President Obama has invited a group of Republicans to his Super Bowl party. He’s going to sit the “you lie” guy right next to the “not true” guy.

President Obama told a group of high school kids not to blow their college money in Las Vegas and people in Las Vegas are very upset. Without these kids’ college funds, who is going to take care of the ventriloquists and the prostitutes?

Adm. Michael Mullen, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, says he believes gays should serve in the military. All gays, whether they want to or not.
Iran fired a rocket into space carrying a mouse, a turtle, and some worms. It reminds me of the time when I was eight years old and my friend and I glued a cockroach to a bottle rocket and shot it over his fence.
During his town hall meeting in New Hampshire yesterday, President Obama said that using stimulus money to help schools is “not sexy” but it’s “making a difference.” Oddly enough, that's the same way he describes Nancy Pelosi.
At the town hall event, President Obama also said, “Jobs will be our No. 1 focus in 2010.” He then added, “Specifically, mine and Biden's jobs.”
The president told Senate Democrats that politics "can't just be about scoring points." Then today, he was sued by the Knicks for stealing their motto.
Everyone’s talking about the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. Adm. Mike Mullen said it’s wrong to force people “to lie about who they are” in order to serve their country. Then Congress was like, “Who cares? We do that every election.”
