    “Texas DA’s Murder Has Prosecutors On Alert”

    Headline should be changed to : “Obama Supporter Kills Texas DA” .
    I learned that trick from NYTWAPoCNNABCNBCCBSMSNBC headline writers.

    “Caroline Kennedy Eyed As Possible Ambassador To Japan”

    Her talents could be better applied to solving the current North Korea problem. She and Little Kim have much in common – both are descended from line of liars, murderers and thieves, owe everything to nepotism, biggest accomplishment in life peaked with toilet training. I’m sure the two of them could work things out.

    It would be great if that lawsuit killed Obamacare, but I’m not holding my breath.
