Dig This Reporting
The gossip tidbit is that Kobe and his wife, for whom he had to purchase a huge diamond due to his raping a young girl at a Colorado hotel, are expecting another child.
Note the underline in the paragraph below from 13WHAM. Ahem. Kobe Bryant was NOT cleared of the rape. The young lady dropped the case when Bryant’s shark lawyers began to rip her apart.
Now perhaps, as Kobe claims, it was consensual sex. Although the Colorado prosecutors thought the damage to the young woman was enough to cause the rape charge to be very believable.
Still, that is NOT the same thing as being “CLEARED”.
Kobe Bryant to be a Dad Again
Controversial basketball star Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa are expecting their second child in May.
The couple already has a three-year-old daughter named Natalia.
A spokesperson for the couple says, "In addition to their excitement, Kobe and Vanessa have been sharing a lot of laughs because, after hitting game winning shots for the Los Angeles Lakers, Kobe has been making late night food runs for his wife's pregnancy cravings only to get home with the food and find out that her craving has changed."
Bryant was cleared of raping a 19-year-old hotel worker in Colorado last
year. He claimed the sex was consensual.
A Book You Really Oughta Read
I like it so much it will be the feature book for this Blog post.
Because with such luminaries and political experts as Barbra Streisand, Cher, and the very handsome Michael Moore, how can you go wrong?
The book is Do As I Say (Not As I Do) : Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy by Peter Schweizer.
Check out the Amazon listing for the book. Better, buy one. And hey, check the comments by such unbiased users such as BitchAboutBush.com "Support The Anti-Bush Movement @" (http://www.BitchAboutBush.com). Heh.
We hear Al Franken is suing.
Trump Making $15 Million for Ten Speeches
We’re all for capitalism here and if The Donald can get these kind of bucks for talking, then more power to him.
The speeches will be for The Learning Annex, according to SFGate.com, a “Sylvan Learning Center” type of place that was, ahem, featured prominently in a recent The Apprentice episode.
We also hear Trump is filing bankruptcy on some of his Atlantic City casinos.
Wethinks The Donald with the impossible hair should be making up my mind just who he is. Is he a savvy business fellow who managed to grow his father’s legacy to a grandness of epic proportions? Is he a TV star? Or is he a huckster selling his soul for the highest offer?
It’ll die off someday, somebody should tell The Donald. Someday he’ll just be a has-been with ridiculous hair.
The Apprentice" star Donald Trump is set to make $15 million for ten one-hour speeches.
The property tycoon will headline The Learning Annex Real Estate Wealth Expo Tour 2006 after his reality TV show made him a celebrity as well as a tycoon.
The Learning Annex president Bill Zanker says, "In the 25-year history of The Learning Annex, there's never been a bigger draw than Donald Trump.
"He's worth every dollar we're paying him and then some."
Trump will take the show to Las Vegas, New York, Dallas, Houston, San Diego,
Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston and Philadelphia.

Biden Backs Down
Heh. Seems threatening to shove rosary beads down someone’s throat is not considered good political form.
Biden admits he shouldn't have threatened to shove rosary beads down people's throats
Senator Biden is backing off of some controversial remarks he made last month during a campaign appearance in Kentucky.
Biden told WDEL's Allan Loudell Thursday that he regrets saying he would shove his rosary beads "down the throat" of the next Republican who questioned his faith.
Nanny Minner Not Doing Too Well
Seems even her friends, the mighty Delaware state worker unions, are even picketing the lady’s house.
Indeed this Biden buddy has ratings tanking so bad they make Bush’s look astronomical. Read on for her next act.
All of the following from a GOP email.
Because Delaware Can Never Have Too Much Biden
And Nanny Minner, so it is speculated, will insure our next generation will have more Cheshire cat grins when BEAU BIDEN is appointed Delaware Attorney General to replace Jane Brady.

Mike Castle-Traitor and RINO.
Last week, Delaware’s one and only representative in the House of Representatives, Mike Castle, voted AGAINST drilling in ANWAR.
Go to hell. We get ourselves one piddly Republican elected and the traitor goes and votes to keep this country dependent on foreign oil, to keep our grandchildren dependent on foreign oil.
Ladies and gems, next time, either the GOP gets a candidate who’s a real REPUBLICAN, or go on and vote Democrat. We know where they’re coming from.

Dogs savage a crocodile
Pack of Dogs kill Croc In Florida
Sometimes nature is cruel but there is also a beauty in that cruelty. The crocodile as one of the ultimate predators can fall victim to the kind of implemented 'team work' strategy which is possible due to the pack mentality and social structure of canines.
