It's News to Me

It's News To Me:

That Sudanese Muslims prefer their children's beloved toy bears to be named after the 26th President of the United States.

KHARTOUM, Sudan (CNN) -- Hundreds of angry protesters, some waving ceremonial swords from trucks equipped with loud speakers, gathered Friday outside the presidential palace to denounce a teacher whose class named a Teddy bear "Mohammed" -- some calling for her execution.

That radio talk show host Michael Savage nailed it- that "Liberalism is a Mental Disease", years ago.

PRINCETON, NJ -- Republicans are significantly more likely than Democrats or independents to rate their mental health as excellent, according to data from the last four November Gallup Health and Healthcare polls. Fifty-eight percent of Republicans report having excellent mental health, compared to 43% of independents and 38% of Democrats.

That Rep(tile). Jack Murtha, whose district includes LaTrobe, PA, home of Arnold Palmer, asks for a mulligan, after getting in the sandtrap.

"I think the ’surge’ is working," the Democrat said from his Johnstown office, describing the president’s decision to commit more than 20,000 additional combat troops this year. But the Iraqis "have got to take care of themselves." Murtha visited troops in Kuwait, Iraq, Turkey and Belgium over Thanksgiving.

That the University of Nebraska athletic department took this long to find a football coach replacement.

Lincoln, Neb. (AP) -- Tom Osborne is back as Nebraska's football coach -- just for now. Osborne, already the interim athletic director, has declared himself interim head coach until he hires a successor to Bill Callahan.

That Fidel Castro is this senile, revealing his own tried and true assassination tips.

Havana (AP) - Fidel Castro said Friday he has warned Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to watch out for U.S.-backed assassination attempts, telling his close friend and socialist ally to avoid open-top vehicles that could be targeted by snipers.

All this time, I thought it was the other way around.

Pope Benedict XVI strongly criticized modern-day atheism in a major document released today, saying atheism had led to some of the "greatest forms of cruelty and violations of justice" ever known to mankind.

I always believed Ronald Reagan was Irish.
