“Daughter Of Destiny” Dead

RIP Benazir Bhutto.

Back in October, an Infant suicide bomber killed 170 in an attempt on her life.

This time they got her.

Robber Uses Taxi As Getaway Car

Wow, you have to hand it to this guy for having the cojones to rob a bank with no weapon and no getaway car:

A man walked into a First Arizona Savings branch, in the 2900 block of North Scottsdale Road, raised his hand in his jacket pocket simulating a weapon and said, “This is a robbery.”

The man took an undisclosed amount of cash and ran from the bank.

A witness reported seeing the man get into a lime green taxi.

And yes, he actually got away.

Police described the man as a 55-year-old White male, about 5 foot, 9 inches, with a stocky build, black or gray mustache and a long ponytail. He was wearing a blue flannel jacket, blue jeans and a tan baseball hat.

Hah! An aging  hippy…figures!

Maybe he’ll use the money to buy himself some wheels.

Priests Rumble

In a brawl reminiscent of the infamous street fight scene in Anchorman, Greek Orthodox and Armenian priests attacked each other “with brooms and stones inside the Church of the Nativity as long-standing rivalries erupted in violence during holiday cleaning on Thursday”.

The basilica, built over the grotto in Bethlehem where Christians believe Jesus was born, is administered jointly by Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox and Armenian Apostolic authorities. Any perceived encroachment on one group’s turf can touch off vicious feuds.

I guess!

On Thursday, dozens of priests and cleaners were scrubbing the church ahead of the Armenian and Orthodox Christmas, celebrated in early January. Thousands of tourists visited the church this week for Christmas celebrations.

But the clean-up turned ugly after some of the Orthodox faithful stepped inside the Armenian church’s section, touching off a scuffle between about 50 Greek Orthodox and 30 Armenians.

Several people were wounded, some with blood running down their faces.

Hey, it could have been worse. At least no one left a trident laying around.

Bad Santa

Only in LA, folks:

A 6 ft 4, 280 lb man dressed in a purple G-string and a red Santa hat failed a breathalyzer test outside of Grauman’s Chinese Theater Sunday night.

Rick Carroll, 53, of Long Beach, Calif., who also sported a blond wig, black leg warmers and red, lace camisole, allegedly registered just over the legal blood-alcohol limit of .08 percent when officers tested him after he pulled up in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater Sunday night, the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.

He was booked on a misdemeanor DUI charge and released on $5,000 bail. His car was impounded.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Chief Ken Garner said officers were “pretty sure this is not … Santa Claus.”

I daresay.

Blogburst For Thompson

It’s the eleventh hour for Thompson, and what’s sad is, even though he’s been my first choice for the Republican nominee, I haven’t devoted a single post for him.

Well, Rick Moran at The Right Wing Nuthouse is proposing a Blogburst for Thompson.

I’m in, baby.

The Thompson Campaign needs $248,846 in the bank before 6:00 pm EST Friday, Dec 28 in order to put this ad on the air in Iowa. It’s ‘do or die’ time for Thompson. If you can help, please do.

Let’s do this thing!
