80% of GOP Approve Palin as Future, Also 103% of Dems
Alaska governor and former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin refuses to go away, or change her already-failed tactics in aspiration for higher posts. She may be the future of the GOP ticket, and recent polls show that as many as 80% of self-described republican voters want to see her in such a role. Perhaps more surprising, as many as 103% of democrat voters agree (margin of error � 3%.)

Here's Why John McCain Deserves to Lose Election
The negative campaigning has been bad enough, and sending Sarah Palin out as his surrogate has been even worse, but the lies have really boiled over, if you ask me, and it's not the liberal media telling me the GOP is lying through their teeth, it's McCain's own site. I try to keep abreast of all the news, and sometimes I do a pretty good job (I read maybe 50 articles a day and check the polls probably 15-times), but I've never thought to check out McCain's own site� and might I say, wow, that guy is breaking my heart.

God Answers McCain's Prayers with Resounding "No"
God, highest power in all the universe, perhaps best known as the creator of day and night, took a few minutes away from his daily chore of answering billions of prayers for wealth, fame and sexual partners to publicly address a persistent request from one of his most visible, though least faithful followers, John McCain. "No," said God, with a chorus of angels in accompaniment. "I will not honor the requests of you or Sarah Palin. Sorry. I have bigger things to deal with and you should stop praying to me for ."

Seattle�s Halloween Train Chuggas Its Choo-Choo on Horizon
It�s that time of year once again. Of all the seasons in all the months, I reluctantly admit (to you only, not to my family) that Halloween is my favorite, and there�s no better way to enjoy it than with a clever costume, trick-or-treating amongst generous adults, and by riding the fun-tastic rails of the Halloween Train offered up by the Northwest Railway Museum in Snoqualmie, Washington.

Polls Show McCain Gaining Inches, Obama Gaining Electorates
Nationally, the race is tightening, and I can't speak to why, save for saying perhaps that it's because undecided voters have finally come to terms with their inner racists. Post-debate polls show Obama as the clear victor from the third debate, and there haven't been any game changers in the mean time, not even small ones, but yet McCain is gaining ground across the country despite him still being McCain, Palin continuing her mediocre quest for lacklustery, and the GOP ticket generally being out-spent by margins unimaginable in previous presidential races, but here's why it isn't any time yet to even think about losing heart.

Palin to Drop Out, Huckabee Will Replace Her, So Help Him God
With Obama crushing McCain dead in the polls, and the all the pop of radical campaign attempts having fizzled, it�s time for a game-changer, and short of ordering a domestic attack under the guise of foreign terrorism, there ain�t a whole lot of cards to throw down� there is one, though, and it�s troopergate, and those results are nigh about to hit the public press� so get ready for the last arrow in the quiver of the GOP, and it�s a big a doozy as it�s sure to be a dud.

It's Time to Get Serious About Supporing Sarah Palin
America has reached a critical point in her history, and these drastic times call for drastic, even costly measure, and although we've plainly stated our partisan support for the other guys, it's time for you to do something counter-partisan to offset my efforts, or to agree with them. Whether right or left, you can agree that we have to support Maverick Palin, so consider doing as I did, just now. Send a message to McCain to keep that fun lovin' wingnut on the ticket, you betcha.

Collection Agents Struggle to Find New Ways to Be Evil
With job loss at historic highs, inflation already taking hold, and the credit markets virtually frozen, millions of well-to-do Americans have found themselves in a place they never thought they�d be: collections.

Apartments Find Gold in Housing Crunch: They Mine it From Tenants
I�d like to say it�s rare to find a mega-corporate conglomerate that has discovered a new and innovative way to make a few extra bucks legally, and it�s because those types almost always go about it the wrong way. We rarely dip in to consumer protection stories, but the management at Heatherwood Apartments has preyed on its poor, working class tenants like no professional agency I�ve ever seen, and it�s a can of worms, so we�re ready to dip into it. Not because we can, but because we must. These guys are corporate crooks, and they�ve taken advantage of thousands already, and they need to know the world is watching.

Despite their reputation as a nation "not having a reputation," marketing executives have come up with a product that will finally put Canada on the map, which currently, at least on maps printed in the United States, it is not.

Glossy News Endorses Barack Obama for 2008 Presidential Candidacy
Glossy News has long been a political commentary outlet, and has never endorsed a candidate.

That candidate for the presidency of the United States of America is Barack Obama, whose middle name is "Osama", which we only point out as a commentary on the inanity of tabloid webzines like E Online and the lackluster like.

Dane proved me wrong, and I'm thankful for it.

TSA Bans "Fun" on Airlines
Effective immediately, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced an adjustment in the aviation threat level from RED to ORANGE--and for the color blind, from "pretty dark" to "slightly less dark." As befuddled travelers struggled through even tighter airport security, and with it, longer lines, they were stunned to find security officers burrowing through their bags for what seemed like endless minutes looking for yet another newly prohibited carry-on item, "fun." To eliminate any chance of the threat levels such as "RED" and "ORANGE" being used as a weapon against Americans, Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff also augmented the threat level system itself, saying "aviation threat levels shall now be known as 'Red your grandmother might wear at Christmas' and 'That really tacky orange you see on Floridian homes the further south you go.'" The terrorist threat "fun" presents to an airplane, its crew and its passengers was referred to as greater than the threat of "sticky-notes, doilies, and Vaseline combined", said one DHS official.

Reviews of "The Smile," Starring Edward James Olmos
"That tiresome Hollywood cliche', the Gypsy curse, has been infused with vigorous new life in thriller about a curt, somber-faced Head Chef who must suddenly go through life with a broad smile etched on his face. Much of the film's success is due to the bold casting of Edward James Olmos. Mr. Olmos has played curt somber-faced police lieutenants, curt somber-faced teachers, curt somber-faced fathers, curt somber-faced spaceship commanders and many other types of curt somber-faced authority figures in his lengthy, acclaimed career -- yet here he displays an amazing new depth of character and range of emotion... He smiles, by God! And viewers will find themselves smiling back."

Donald Rumsfeld is not a public figure who inspires indifference in most Americans. His central role in the Bush administration's diplomatic and military policies, combined with an unusual degree of charisma (he actually made People magazine's "Sexiest" list in 2002), have made him a lightning rod for scathing criticism and fervent praise alike (though considerably less of the latter than the former in recent days).

Quandary of Genius: The Life, Struggle, and Passion (for diction) of George Walker Bush
Throughout history humanity has given birth to many extraordinary leaders that have been given a divine gift to command the wills of other and craft the future of civilization with their prophetic foresight and indomitable wills. Men like these come only in handfuls, men like; Mohandas Gandhi, Lech Walesa, V.I. Lenin, Bhaskar Sunkara, Malcolm X, Mikhail Gorbachev, and most recently our generation�s own leader, the great, the always affable, the master wordsmith President George Walker Bush. Although it is clear to even the most untrained, drug-addicted, sandal wearing, stem-cell munching liberal-eye that the President is a master orator, skilled writer, and witty interviewee, the shimmering brilliance of our glorious leader can only be truly appreciated when one carefully examines his words and actions during his remarkable political career.

"Human Noodle Soup" May Help Birds Survive Avian Flu

Scientists have been experimenting with vaccines and medicines to help treat and prevent bird flu, but so far nothing looks promising.
One local veterinary research company, however, has found success with a very unusual yet at the same time logical remedy- human noodle soup. Dr. Kazslo Kovacs of the Lancaster based Avian Solutions has been doing research with the soup for several months now and is excited about the results.

Tsunami Does Some Good for a Change
Off the coast of India, near the ancient seaside town of Mahabalipuram (30 miles south of Madras), the ruins of ancient temples have been uncovered by the power of �Indiana� Tsunami. The heavily sloshing waters washed away sand deposits that had covered what are believed to be part of the fabled �seven pagodas.� Mahabalipuram, which was already well known for its shoreline temples, has already been declared a World Heritage site by whoever it is that makes declarations like that. Archaeologists around the world, none of them nearly as cool as Indiana Jones, are already in the throws of wet dreams thinking of the chance to excavate the site.

Washington, D.C. - Following an exhaustive nine-week long search, President George W. Bush has selected a new intelligence chief who will take over the both the duties of the newly created position and those of Jiminy Cricket, who recently vacated his position as President Bush�s conscience.

Air Force to Ground Older Aircraft
Washington, D.C. - The Air Force said Friday it is grounding 30 of its oldest C-130 cargo planes and putting flight restrictions on 60 others after discovering unexpectedly severe wing cracks. Standard severe wing cracks were to be expected, but completely nonexistent wings and holes the size of the wound suffered by the Space Shuttle Columbia when a piece of the external tank�s insulating foam hit its leading edge were extraordinary.

As such, an opening has occurred in the Axis of Evil (whose other members remain Iran and a newly nuclear North Korea).

Jesus is a False Blonde
While Glossy News will not argue the fact that Jesus is the Son of God, we would like to point out that he is, presumably, the son of Mary, as well.

So unless baby Jesus was hit with some kind of supernatural, super-dominant blonde gene, it seems more than likely that he � contrary to popular depiction � was dark-featured as well.

Bush Refuses Murdoch Inaugural Dance, FOX Now Left Wing
Washington - Though never claiming to be President Bush's "Right Hand" in his campaign for election and re-election, media magnate Rupert Murdoch has always settled for being "the President's middle finger," according to many.

Short Guy's "Got it Where it Counts," Doesn't
Geoffrey Cudna, a short man from White Plains, NY, has long purported that, despite his lackluster height of a mere 5'4", he definitely has "got it where it counts." A recent survey of no fewer than six of his past lovers has now surfaced debunking ridiculous claim. "Oh dude," lied Geoffrey through his smallish, carnie-like teeth, "don't let my height fool you. In my pants I've got a wicked anaconda of Hollywood sequel proportion."

America Vindicated: Less Destructive than Nature
America has been temporarily vindicated. As the death toll from the tsunami officially climbs past 225,000, America is no longer the most destructive force on planet Earth. In 1945, an 8,000 pound uranium-235 atomic bomb was dropped by the Enola Gay on the Japanese industrial city of Hiroshima, 500 miles from Tokyo. The bomb exploded with the force of some 125,000 tons of TNT, instantly destroyed most of the city and straight up killing approximately 70,000 people... but just 70,000.

Colts Get Hammered, Choke; Also Lose Football Game
Last Sunday, the Indianapolis Colts got totally hammered and blitzed in Foxboro, Massachusetts. They choked on booze and women until all hours of the night prior to game day. Then they lost their divisional-round playoff game against the New England Patriots. �I guess it was a poor decision on my part to allow my 1st-string squad to get blitzed � in the alcohol sense of the word � the night before the big game.

Janet Jackson Bares Breast at Bush Inauguration
During President Bush's second swearing-in ceremony, the public earned outrage from his 278 abuses of the word �liberty�, and by the reoccuring public display of Janet Jackson�s right breast. The crowd was frenzied as Bush continually stammered �liberty�, but all semblance of order broke down at the conclusion of the ceremony, when Janet Jackson, while singing the national anthem, intentionally exposed her breast for all to see.

It�s not like I�m asking to buy Tom Brady�s jersey right off of his back or something. It�s just a jersey. What else could I buy for $279.99? How about six computer games for my PC or Xbox? How about a one-month payment on a Toyota Corolla? How about 70 issues of Popular Science?

Trees Can't See the Forest for Me
As I stand here gazing at the behemoth connifer which allegedly pre-dates our good Lord Christ, I gain perspective. Sadly, the trees learn nothing from our encounter as if they can't see the forest for the me(s). I see them, I even carve my name in their haggard barks, yet for me, no such respect, appreciation nor vandalism.

Gross Motor Skills Fine By Me
One component of my hectic work-a-day regiment of toddler training is gross motor skills. Some call it occupational training, but if they don't offer job placement upon graduation I just can't agree with that label. Call me old-school but I call it "gross motor skills", and based upon what I've learned to refine my work over recent months, heck, it's just fine by me, baby (and/or babies and/or adult-types.)

Degrees of Bacon Officially Reduced to Five
Transportation and information technologies are steadily shrinking our world, but little has evidenced the matter quite as plainly as the ability to tie any mainstream actor to Kevin Bacon in six or fewer degrees of separation.

Porn Stars Decry US Military Ethics
Amid protest signs exhorting "Plastic Bombs not Boobs" former California Gubernatorial Candidate and Porn Star Mary Carey challenged US Military recruitment ethics. She stated that "the US Military's offer to pay for breast implants as a signing bonus debases women who are proud enough to serve our country and reinforces the belief that small breasts are something to be ashamed of. Most of all it objectifies women."

Road Trip Reaches End of the Line
All good things must come to an end, so too must conclude my near eternity of sitting strapped in the back of the car eating, sleeping, fussing and wondering if we'll ever be there, wherever elusive "there" may be.

Woman Dumps Clueless Metrosexual
27 year old Denise Waters dumped her boyfriend of 6 months Mike Belsen, because �he totally thought he was a metrosexual, but he had no idea what that meant�. Ms. Waters claims that at first, when he would proclaim his �metrosexuality� on dates and what not, she would just shrug. �I mean who cares, so he takes showers right? I thought maybe he takes longer to get ready but no big deal, we don�t live together and I saw us going to Barneys together to buy moisturizers and maybe a spa day.�

Documentary 2,000 Miles to Maine Fails to Suck
I regularly accept requests to review films and do so with boisterous glee. Hollywood is afraid of my brutal honesty but, once out of the "Golden State" of California the fear dissipates and my poignant slams are more graciously accepted. But then I get ambitious, underfunded, granola-laden documentary and I'm giddy as a schoolgirl thinking, "Tearing bad boy apart should be easy."

Local Man 'Google-y Eyed'
In the early days of the internet most would press a key, sit, wait, wait some more, and then part of a screen would load, eventually. Today, everything happens fast and new tricks and tools are coming at the average user faster than bugs to a windshield. That is why what happened to local man, Dolf Shingren, is all the sadder. You see, Dolf is an affirmed 'Google' man.

Maybe you know macular degeneration better known as loss of eyesight. It's troubling among geriatric people starting at the wise old age of ten and up. But have you ever watched someone you love, someone in your own family even struggle with the opposite?

Navy's Trojan Horse Program Cancelled
As I've come to understand it the US Navy has been working for the past year in total secrecy to develop an aquatic trojan horse program to infiltrate foreign coasts with the greatest of sneakiness. Now, due to unforeseeable drawbacks and cutbacks it has sadly been abandoned.

Rival Site Turns 300, Glossy News Running Scared

Tourist Trap Sucks Overall, Money Specifically
I've seen cool places from the Pearl of the Orient to the armpit of the US and one thing I've found all over is greedy locals ruining the experience for the uninformed passers-through. Is it pride, stupidity, hatred or just a general ill-wishing on the world at large? Let's examine it more closely.

Keebler Cousin Visit Goes Elfin' Great
No road trip would be complete without the obligatory visits to family along our path, and as fate would have it my wee, tree-dwelling, baker cousins were right along the way. Pop in, spot of tea, "howdy adieu", mission accomplished, right?

Tunneling Cubans Relieved to Drown Before Reaching US
Cuban citizens have enjoyed a robust, 50-year heritage of devising innovative ways to escape their homeland. From the '55 Chevy Pickup to cargo containers to even the most daring attempts by the four men hiding in former president Carter's handbag. But none have been so courageous as those who recently attempted to dig their way out.

Leggo My Eggo or Today Ye Shall Die
Quantum Petshop has unveiled their latest travesty on the breakfast bar, Bullets Over Breakfast, a heart-warming tale about a trio of assassins divided over the ultimate toaster waffle. By "ultimate" I rarely mean "the one to end all", but in case, sadly and happily, I do.

Welcome to Alderpoint, Population: Cow
My whirlwind tour has quietly ground to the most placid of a pause here in sunny, scorching Alderpoint, California. The hilltop ranching community boasts fewer inhabitants than even attended my dance recital and most of them are Jersey cows.

Housing Prices Soar, Historic Mansions Out of Reach
For those of you who don't regularly read my tales of woe and woah, I'll just tell you that I still live at home. Now that I've looked around at house prices I remember why, prices are crazy! How can a lowly writer, let alone an infant/toddler be expected to afford these prices? It's like I'm expected to have a job or some such sort of thing!

William "Bubba" Jameson of Topeka, Kansas has never been on television. When he received a call from the producers of the Jerry Springer show early Monday morning, rather than being excited about his glimpse at a long-overdue 15-minute segment of fame, he instead looked suspiciously at his "sketchy" girlfriend.

Gender Bent Baby Barks Up Wrong Trunk

"Fashion Do's & Doughnuts" Falls Short with Wide Consumers
In a small, Midwestern town a brave business venture was launched on the simple premise that full-figured shoppers like doughnuts and need "tall or short and wide" clothes. Every ounce of daring and innovation along the way has been met with comparable ounces of "total failure," as the owners and their lenders now agree.
