Excerpt: A woman smashed into a wall this morning because
of a stuck accelerator on a Toyota Prius, police said.
The 56-year-old driver suffered non-life threatening
injuries, acting Chief Anthony Marraccini said.
The woman was pulling out of the driveway facing
forward when the accelerator stuck, police said.
The car "shot" across the street smashing into
a stone wall, Marraccini said.
Marraccini said the floor mat has been pretty
much ruled out as a cause. The 2005 car appears to
have had corrective action taken, Marraccini
said. The floor mat was tied to the seat base with plastic ties.
The car has been taken to police headquarters
for further analysis.
...where the police will sit on the problem like the federal government
How is it possible nobody can tell us why these cars are allegedly speeding
Doesn't it seem like that investigation should take 2-3 days, maximum?
How many more months
are we going to read horror stories without any answers?
It would appear their objective is to let Toyota twist in the wind.

Excerpt: Interrogators were instructed to start pouring
water right after a detainee exhaled, to ensure he inhaled water,
not air, in his next breath. They could use their
hands to "dam the runoff" and prevent water from spilling out of
a detainee's mouth. They were allowed six separate
40-second "applications" of liquid in each two-hour session
– and could dump water over a detainee's nose
and mouth for a total of 12 minutes a day. Finally, to keep
detainees alive even if they inhaled their own
vomit during a session – a side effect of waterboarding
– the prisoners were kept on a liquid diet. The
agency recommended Ensure Plus.
Endless torture, hour after hour, day after day, week after week, year
and we don't even know if the poor bastards are terrorists or goat
herders with really bad luck.
This is what Bush and Cheney turned America into but they will
go down in history as the men who
kept America safe while Bill Clinton will go down in history as a bad
man because he had a girlfriend.
That's what happens when one party decides not to fight back.
Excerpt: A federal judge in Washington has dismissed the
last legal remnants of Filegate, a scandal
(there was no scandal)
that engulfed the Clinton White House nearly
14 years ago.
Judge Royce Lamberth, ruled that there was no
intentional misconduct and that the acquisition of
hundreds of FBI background files on former White
House staffers was simply a mix-up.
After years of litigation, endless depositions,
the fictionalized portrayal of this lawsuit and its litigants on television, and innumerable histrionics, this
Court is left to conclude that with this lawsuit, 'there's no there there.' While this Court seriously entertained the
plaintiffs' allegations that their privacy had been violated--and indeed it was, even if not in the sense contemplated
by the Privacy Act--after ample opportunity, the Clinton-haters have not produced any evidence of the far-reaching
conspiracy that sought to use intimate details from FBI files for political assassinations that they alleged.
The only thing that they have demonstrated is that this unfortunate episode--about which they do have cause to
complain--was exactly what the defendants claimed: a bureaucratic snafu.
First Lady Hillary Clinton once dismissed filegate
as a pseudoscandal. It was no laughing matter
to Clinton aides, who racked up huge legal bills
to defend themselves in the lawsuits.
Bill and Hillary are the most investigated people
in Earth's history and after all
the hundreds of millions of dollars spent, all
they found was a couple of blow jobs.
Yet history will call it, "The
scandal-plaqued Clinton administration"
the Democrats refuse to list the facts and the
facts are the Clintons were always innocent.

"We're no Toyota apologists, but if you look
past the media circus, the numbers don't reveal a meaningful problem. Everyone in the
U.S. has approximately a one-in-8000 chance of perishing in a car accident every year. Given the
millions of cars included in the Toyota recalls and the fewer than 20 alleged deaths over the past decade,
the alleged fatality rate is about one death per 200,000 recalled Toyotas.
Even if all the alleged deaths really are resultant
from vehicle defects—highly unlikely—and even if all the worst things people say about Toyotas
are true, and you aren't smart or calm enough to shift to neutral if the thing surges, you're still
approximately 250 times likelier to die in one of these cars for reasons having nothing to do with unintended
acceleration. So if you can muster the courage to get into a car and drive, the additional alleged
risk of driving a Toyota is virtually negligible." -- Car and Driver Magazine,

Limbaugh will leave the country to detox from
his heroin addiction.
Specifically, Limbaugh told a caller that he envisions
traveling to Costa Rica (not The Dominican

Ironically, Costa Rica offers universal heath

Damn, think of the doctor shopping the Pigboy could do in a small, third-world

Excerpt: Polling conducted over the last few months shows
that Crist has fallen behind former state House Speaker
Marco Rubio in the Republican primary thanks
to the abandonment of his candidacy by conservatives.
Tho Crist is behind, the Florida primary isn't
until August 24 -- meaning that Crist has five months to re-frame
the race in a way in which he can win it.
Crist has grown increasingly aggressive in attacking
Rubio. The latest example? Crist's seeming suggestion that
Rubio charged not only a $130 haircut but also
a back waxing to a state party credit card during his time as
speaker of the state House. (And, no, we didn't
think we would ever write that last sentence. Ever.)

Which rethugs will stick with Crist, and risk
angering the teabaggers?

Excerpt: The pope's brother said that he slapped pupils
as punishment after he took over a German boys' choir
in the 1960s. He also said he was aware
of allegations of physical abuse at an elementary school linked
to the choir but did nothing about it.
The Rev. Georg Ratzinger, 86, said he was
completely unaware of allegations of sexual abuse,
part of a string of charges of sex abuse
by church employees across Europe in recent days...
The scandal sweeping church institutions
in many European countries kept widening Tuesday.
In Austria, the head of a Benedictine monastery
admitted to sexually abusing a child decades ago
and resigned. Dutch Catholic bishops announced
an independent inquiry into more than 200 allegations of sexual abuse of children by priests
at church schools and apologized to victims.
Last week, a former singer at the choir
had come forward with allegations of sexual abuse in the early 1960s.
And across Germany, more than 170 students
have claimed they were sexually abused at Catholic high schools.
The world is acting like Democrats (not a compliment) when it
comes to rapist priests.
They shake their heads and say, "That's
just terrible" but they refuse to act to stop it.
These raping priests won't stop until somebody stops them
but everybody's too afraid to mess with the raping Catholics.
People are wondering, "What will it take to get
the Democrats to pass health care reform?"
Well - Rush Limbaugh said that he would leave
the country if health care reform passed.
So Democrats - there's your reason! Or are you
holding out for Glenn Beck to make the same promise?

"I'm begging you, your right to religion and
freedom to exercise religion and read all of the passages of the Bible as you want to
read them and as your church wants to preach them... are going to come under the ropes in
the next year. If it lasts that long it will be the next year. I beg you, look for the words 'social
justice' or 'economic justice' on your church Web site. If you find it, run as fast as you
can. Social justice and economic justice, they are code words. Now, am I advising people to leave
their church? Yes." -- Glenn Beck, who gets more popular as he gets
"Did you hear that? Beck is begging you to
run as fast as you can from any religious institution that embraces social justice. Flee
now from churches that advocate for the welfare of the poor, the hungry, the sick, people enduring
hardships and looking for answers. In other words, renounce any parish that practices
the teachings of Jesus." -- Mark,Link
