Inman Behind Mosque Is Tagged 'Slumlord'

  • Two buildings In Union City, NJ owned by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf placed into receivership so that rent s could be used to fix dozens of violations, including inoperable alarms and sprinklers. City officials have tagged the Iman a "slumlord" after he skipped a hearing on the violations. The New York Post has the story.
  • Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been hinting that she leave the Obama administration before the end of the President's first term (two long years plus to go yet) and guess who's rumored to be her replacement? John Kerry! Well, at least that may leave another Senate seat in Massachusetts open for the GOP to capture. Read the story US News
  • Everybody's all bent outa shape over some bills that Delaware senate candidate Christine O'Donnell might not have paid (or paid late).But what about those taxes that the Secretary of the Treasury finked out on? And How about that community bank at the center of an ethics investigation that has ensnared Rep. Maxine Water? And what about all the ethics problems still swirling around Rep. Charlie Rangel? And then there were those shady Harry Reid land deals in Nevada? And wasn't it John Kerry who tried to evade Massachusetts taxes by hiding his new multi-million dollar yacht somewhere else? And then there was the matter of the President's questionable dealings with Rezko in Chicago. Well, you get the idea. When it comes to alleged indiscretions, Big Media are might selective about what they choose to focus on (translation: conservatives).
  • Over at Big Hollywood, Victoria Jackson thinks Sarah Palin is the "perfect feminist." because: "She is beautiful, thin, even athletic, successful, happily married, a good mother and a grandmother." And Jackson adds: "She’s got it all – everything those Suffragettes were fighting for back in 1920." You can read Jackson column by clicking here. BTW: Palin certainly did demonstrate her power in the latest round of GOP primaries. And you can bet that the last chapter of the Palin story is far from being written.
  • The London Daily Mail says that you'll soon be able to wear a shit that you spray on. "Thanks to a liquid mixture made of cotton fibres we could soon be spraying ourselves into everything from T-shirts, dresses, trousers to swim-wear and hats," The Daily Mail says.

  • In Ohio, Cuyahoga County Commissioner Jimmy Dimora bartered political favors for sex -- a lot of sex, a federal indictment says. Well now, unless he's a Democrat that oughta disqualify him from seeking higher office, or at least re-election. Hmmm . . .  seems he is a Democrat as the news story about all this seems not to mention his political affiliation. Read all about it by clicking here.
