HOLLYWOOD — God bless America, and how’s everybody?   
The Pentagon hinted Wednesday the U.S. is considering a military attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.
It’s sad it had to end this way.
President Obama could have to give back his Nobel Peace Prize a week after Reggie Bush had to give back the Heisman Trophy.
Obama flew to Iowa Wednesday to do a backyard discussion with voters, then later flew to Virginia for another backyard town hall.

Michelle Obama’s bill in Congress to rid schools of candy and cola got delayed until after the election.

It made viewers squirm. President Bush used to hire audience members to throw shoes at him any time he spoke for more than a minute without getting a laugh.

World Wrestling CEO and GOP Senate candidate Linda McMahon surged in the polls in Connecticut Tuesday to tie Democrat Richard Blumenthal.
She’s on an impossible quest. She hopes to go to Washington D.C. and raise politics to the level of professional wrestling.       
Nancy Pelosi ducked a vote to extend tax cuts by adjourning Congress Wednesday on the same day that polls showed she was less popular than British Petroleum. It makes no sense. BP handed out twenty billion dollars while she handed out seven hundred billion dollars.   
The Pentagon launched Predator drone attacks on al-Qaeda training camps Tuesday in Pakistan. The terrorists promise seventy-two virgins to any recruit who reports to training camp. They got the idea by keeping up with Ben Roethlisberger on Twitter during the off-season.
