Cheney gave Iran warning shot

first_img But if there is an actual breakup, one Scientology attorney said, “Tom gets Oprah’s couch.” Hiatus? Yeah, right: The bad news is that the White House TV drama “Commander-in-Chief,” starring Geena Davis, will not be on the air during network sweeps – the kiss of death for a television show with weak ratings. The good news is that the move will give her vice president, Peter Coyote, time to get in some hunting. D’oh! Nice shot: Eight-year-old Toluca Lake basketball player Jake Gould hit a half-court shot that won his Pee Wee basketball game, made him an ESPN star and led Jake to bypass fourth grade and go directly into this year’s NBA draft. But the big news is that Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has named Jake to lead his effort to build a subway to the Pacific. “We figured it was such a long shot,” said the mayor, “who better to take it?” Memo to Cindy Sheehan: I wouldn’t wear anything with feathers on your Easter holiday visit to Crawford.

You’re all set! Author’s note: Due to the past week’s deluge of Dick Cheney-shot-a-guy-in-the-face jokes, I thought it best not to add to your misery. So I will not be writing any gags like: “It was actually just a warning shot for Iran. If we’d shoot a 78-year-old lawyer friend, what the hell do you think we’d do to a nutso country building a nuclear bomb?” or “Guns don’t shoot lawyers; vice presidents do.” I will not insinuate that DUI attorney Myles Berman could see new client possibilities because friends don’t let vice presidents plead guilty to shooting lawyer friends while drunk. Nor would I ever sing a “Cheney’s Got a Gun” song parody – or even tell you that Cheney would get off by using the ever-popular “but he’s a lawyer” defense. But if I did … Dick shot the lawyer, but he did not shoot Dave Gregory: While the vice president did actually shoot an elderly man in the face, he did not shoot NBC’s White House press corps reporter David Gregory. That was just a really good dream that White House press secretary Scott McClellan had. Wait’ll next year: The Los Angeles Dodgers opened spring training this week and were promptly mathematically eliminated. “It really wasn’t lack of offense or pitching,” said new General Manager Ned Colletti. “It was the math.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant Preposterous painful payback: After reading that wounded 1st Lt. William “Eddie” Rebrook IV had to pay the U.S. military $700 for his missing and bloodied body armor or else his discharge would be held up, Iraqi insurgents sent Rebrook a bill for the cost of the bomb they used to blow him up. “After reading about how the U.S. Army deals with its own men, we figured it would be worth a shot,” said terrorist I. Yamnuts. “These roadside bombs don’t grow on trees.” Ratings fall: The last-known remaining television viewer of the Winter Olympics has pulled out from watching the games due to a devastating fall on his way back from the refrigerator. “It was stupid really,”said Cal Chpotato. “I was carrying way too many Velveeta cheese sandwiches while balancing a six-pack on my head and didn’t notice my family members, who were watching ‘American Idol.’ It’s a letdown, but I should be back in time for next year’s ‘Skating With Celebrities.”‘ Notice from the heart: The meeting of the guys who forgot to get something for their wives on Valentine’s Day has been moved from the Staples Center to the Convention Center to handle the overflow.

No more tortured Polaroids: With the fear that the newly released Abu Ghraib torture photographs would inflame the already strong resentment against the United States, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has put his foot down. “For criminy sakes,” said Rumsfeld, “if you’re going to torture someone, please, no pictures.” Tom and Katie calling it quits? Not to worry fans. The rumors are premature. “Before calling off the engagement there would be a trial separation,” said Holmes’ spokesman Will Kissbutt. “Katie wants to separate before she ends up on trial.” last_img read more
