Even though I make it a point to not watch Lou Dobbs whistle the latest emailed right-wing talking point he gets through his dentures, I’m confident he’s been tossing out this one, because he’s spun the same crap before.

OMG, Nancy Pelosi’s been flying all over the place on your dime — when she should be using her broom!

I know you’ll all be shocked to learn, that talking point is once again, not only overblown, but more accurate about her Republican predecessor, who was never criticized about the topic at all.

The documents cover the period from January 2007 to November 2008 and show that Pelosi made the equivalent of 20 round-trips between Washington (Andrews Air Force Base) and San Francisco. That’s an average of less than one round-trip per month. In contrast, former Speaker Hastert traveled home to his Illinois district virtually every weekend and, his former aides tell ABC News, he would almost always travel on military aircraft.

Lies loudly proclaimed and transmitted by a lazy press corps, all shown to be crap — after the lies are reported.

So it’s a day ending in "y".

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
