Enough with the 'Obama gave Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II an iPod' and 'Michelle Obama Broke Protocol!' stories.


Neglected in the fuss is that the President and First Lady also presented Her Majesty with a signed Richard Rogers songbook. An unconfirmed source says that the music, 'People Will Say We're In Love,' from the musical, Oklahoma, has sentimental meaning to Her Majesty and Prince Phillip.

As for the protocol question, it seems that Her Majesty initiated the 'hug' - so it's most decidedly a non-issue.

Catholic Cardinal Francis George is calling Notre Dame University's invitation for President Obama to speak at this year's commencement an 'extreme embarassment' to Catholics, due to Obama's stance on embryonic stem cell research.

Cardinal George is encouraging Catholics to write their elected representatives and the White House, expressing their embarassment and difficulties with the matter.

And where was this pious umbrage when our previous president (who also spoke at NDU) launched a war on false pretenses, approved torture, and then paid lip service to Pope John Paul II's treatise on the Culture of Life?

Pious umbrage doesn't exactly describe the latest from Rush Limbaugh - more like 'racist homophobe with bizarre fascination with anal sex.'

Regarding British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and President Obama, Limbaugh remarked, "The slobbering, the slobbering, this guy folks--- I'm telling you. If he keeps this up throughout the G-20, Gordon Brown will come down with anal poisoning and may die from it."

This is the man to whom leading GOP officials and members of Congress defer to?

I think it's time to do something about it.

Police have arrested seven people, four of them juveniles, on charges stemming from a case of arson on March 20.

The suspects broke into a former Boys' & Girls' Club building, lit molotov cocktails, and set several fires.

There's no dancing around or equivocation with terms like 'alleged' or 'believed to have' ... because the suspects videotaped the incident and posted it to YouTube.

The video included a credits roll with their names on it.
