Andrew Young says Hillary Clinton has dated more black women than Obama

Oh wait, I got it a little a wrong - Hillary supporter and professonal black person Andrew Young says it's Bill Cinton that dated more black women than Barack Obama.

All you have to know about Andrew Young is that he is so nuts even Jimmy Carter couldn't take it anymore and fired him from his job as UN Ambassador in 1979. Still, it's good to see that Hillary has the race hustlers on her side. Their mud wrestling with Obama's leftoid moonbats should be quite amusing.

There's good news about Global Warming!

The good news about Global Warming is that you can get research grants to study any goofy thing you want.

Divorce Found to Harm The Environment With Higher Energy, Water Use

Divorce is not just a family matter. It exacts a serious toll on the environment by boosting the energy and water consumption of those who used to live together, according to a study by two Michigan State University researchers.

The analysis found that cohabiting couples and families around the globe use resources more efficiently than households that have split up. The researchers calculated that in 2005, divorced American households used between 42 and 61 percent more resources per person than before they separated, spending 46 percent more per person on electricity and 56 percent more on water.

Their paper, published yesterday in the Proceedings of The National Academy of Sciences, also found that if the divorced couples had stayed together in 2005, the United States would have saved 73 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity and 627 billion gallons of water in that year alone.

Married households use energy and water more efficiently than divorced ones because they share these resources -- including lighting and heating -- among more people, said Jianguo Liu, one of the paper's co-authors. Moreover, the divorced households they surveyed between 1998 and 2002 used up more space, occupying between 33 and 95 percent more rooms per person than in married households.

"Hopefully this will inform people about the environmental impact of divorce," Liu said in an interview yesterday. "For a long time we've blamed industries for environmental problems. One thing we've ignored is the household."

I'm shocked I tell ya! Of course actual marriage isn't the eco-friendly part, it's the cohabitation so I guess there's a new argument in favor of shacking up. Please, don't anyone tell Barbara Boxer - she'll be wanting us all to live in communes.

Eco-friendly kangaroo farts could help global warming: scientists (that really is the title):

SYDNEY (AFP) - Australian scientists are trying to give kangaroo-style stomachs to cattle and sheep in a bid to cut the emission of greenhouse gases blamed for global warming, researchers say.

Thanks to special bacteria in their stomachs, kangaroo flatulence contains no methane and scientists want to transfer that bacteria to cattle and sheep who emit large quantities of the harmful gas.

While the usual image of greenhouse gas pollution is a billowing smokestack pushing out carbon dioxide, livestock passing wind contribute a surprisingly high percentage of total emissions in some countries.

"Fourteen percent of emissions from all sources in Australia is from enteric methane from cattle and sheep," said Athol Klieve, a senior research scientist with the Queensland state government.

"And if you look at another country such as New Zealand, which has got a much higher agricultural base, they're actually up around 50 percent," he told AFP.

Forget the kangaroo-style stomach I want to see Elsie hopping around on her back legs! Actually they ought to experiment on Al Gore - he emits more gas than a feedlot.

Don't expect to hear about it in the mainstream media

Television Networks Fade To Black As The U.S. Surge Succeeds In Iraq
Eleven months ago, when President Bush decided to send an additional 30,000 U.S. troops to Iraq in an effort to win the war, correspondents for the big broadcast networks were openly hostile.

On NBC, anchor emeritus Tom Brokaw scoffed that sending more troops would "seem to most people . . . like a folly," while White House reporter David Gregory touted the charge of unnamed critics that "the President's resolve has become stubbornness."

Over on CBS, Baghdad correspondent Lara Logan chastised that the last time troop levels were increased "it made absolutely no difference. In fact, security here in Baghdad got even worse." The day after Mr. Bush unveiled his "surge" strategy, Katie Couric argued that "selling the American public on it could be a mission impossible."

Her Evening News highlighted the reaction of GOP Senator Chuck Hagel, a media favorite: "I think this speech, given last night by this President, represents the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since Vietnam."

So now that the president's surge strategy has demonstrably paid off in lower casualty rates for our troops and improved security for Iraq citizens, where are the network stories documenting this achievement?

A new Media Research Center study of the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts finds that as the news from Iraq has steadily improved, the war has practically disappeared from TV screens.

Golly, I'm shocked to hear that! It's almost like they were on the terrorists' side. Either that or they just haven't been able to spot any news lately from the hotel bar in Baghdad.

Today's Hoot: Islamic terrorist laughs with the BBC!

Captain Ed provides our daily dose of amusement in Paintballing With The Stars Of The Jihad:

The BBC paid for a paintball trip that included men now accused of training Islamic extremists for terrorism. The British television network included the activity in its "Don't Panic, I'm Islamic" reality series that poked fun at Western Islamophobia. In this case, however, the "joke" is on the Beeb.

Wacky Islamic terrorist fun fer sure! The head fun lover was one Mohammed Hamid who referred to himself as Osama bin London. Even better,
After the bombing, the BBC didn't bother to go to the police with the information, even after Hamid confirmed his association with the two perpetrators. This decision got made at the highest levels of the BBC. The network management decided to withhold information from a national-security investigation because, and I quote, "“I got the sense that he was already talking to the police." One of the biggest news organizations in the world couldn't just ask whether Hamid had gone to the police, or advise him to do so? "I don’t think it’s my obligation to tell another adult that he should go to the police.”

No word on which planet the BBC executives beamed down from and as usual the joke is on us.

Fun with Mary Landrieu

Mary Landrieu is probably not the biggest idiot in the Senate or the sleaziest, but she ranks right up there on both lists, so it's a pleasure to see the Republicans linking her up with Her Heinous, Hillary Clinton.

Don't go away mad, Hugo! Just go away.

The left's favorite loonie Hugo Chavez finally met up with an election he couldn't steal which likely means the real margin was 70 to 30 against. Of course it's not over yet - he may still take a page from the Democrat playbook and keep recounting the ballots until he wins.
