The folks who promoted Earth Hour were the WWF. Since when does professional wrestling and environmentalism mix?
No, this isn't a preliminary to WrestleMania, the group is actually called the World Wildlife Fund.
I'm spending today tying down loose ends, packing and getting ready to head out to Dulles Airport tomorrow as I go out of town for business. I won't have much access to a computer for the next week and a half. I plan to be back here next Thursday, April 9. Until then, here's a couple other items you should know about.
Tax time is coming up soon, and with that, TEA PARTIES! On that note, there's going to be a couple this week which would be great to attend if you're in the area.
Reader Sally notifies me that on Wednesday, April 1, there will be a tea party in San Francisco at Civic Center Park. From there, they will walk to City Hall, Pelosi's office, the Supreme Court and back.
Sally says, "Make sure all signs are appropriate. Stay classy and true to our values; kids might be coming as well." You can find out more at http://www.americasnewteaparty.com/. She also writes that another tea party is planned for April 15 at the same place. For more info go to http://www.taxdayteaparty.com/ and click on CA link and then the facebook link to the SF party.
In West Chester, PA, our friend Skye and the American Sheepdogs will hold a tea party this Saturday, April 4 from 12 to 1 p.m. at High and Market streets. Bring a sign and a friend. Go to MidnightBlue for more info.
New American Tea Party has lists of upcoming tea parties near you, especially those on Tax Day (Democrat National Holiday), especially the big one planned April 15 in Washington DC, in front of the Treasury.
A "friend" of Vice President Joseph Biden's daughter, Ashley, is attempting to hawk a videotape that he claims shows her snorting cocaine at a house party this month in Delaware.
...The video, which the shooter initially hoped to sell for $2 million before scaling back his price to $400,000, shows a 20-something woman with light skin and long brown hair taking a red straw from her mouth, bending over a desk, inserting the straw into her nostril and snorting lines of white powder.
She then stands up and begins talking with other people in the room. A young man looks on from behind her, facing the camera. The lawyers said he was Ashley's boyfriend of a few years.
The camera follows the woman from a few feet away, focusing on her as she moves around the room. It appears not to be concealed. At one point she shouts, "Shut the f--- up!"
The woman appears to resemble Ashley Biden, 27, a social worker for a Delaware child-welfare agency and a visible presence during her father's campaign for the White House.
The dialogue is difficult to discern, but the woman makes repeated references to the drugs, said the lawyers, who said they viewed the tape about 15 times.
"At one point she pretty much complains that the line isn't big enough," said the second lawyer, who declined to identify himself. "And she talks about her dad."
This isn't Ashley's first brush with the law. The Swamp wrote last year how Ashley was arrested in 2002 in Chicago.
From the Tribune, Aug. 4, 2002:
The daughter of Democratic Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware was arrested early Saturday morning in Chicago after two people she was with allegedly attacked a police officer.
Ashley Biden, 21, was in the West Division Street nightlife district about 1:15 a.m. when a friend, John Kaulentis, 24, of Deerfield, threw a soft-drink can at a police officer who had told him to stay behind a barricade set up to keep clubgoers off the street, said police spokesman Thomas Donegan.When the officer tried to take Kaulentis into custody, Kelly Donohoe, 21, of Lake Forest, allegedly jumped on the officer's back, striking him in the mouth with her fist, Donegan said.
When a second officer approached to assist, Biden "verbally intimidated him" and was also arrested, Donegan said. Biden, a student at Tulane University in New Orleans, was charged with obstructing a police officer. She was in Chicago visiting family.
Kaulentis was charged with battery and resisting an officer, and Donohoe was charged with battery and obstructing and resisting a police officer. All three were released on their own recognizance.
And from the Tribune, Oct. 30, 2002:
The daughter of a U.S. senator and two of her friends were cleared Tuesday of criminal charges stemming from a fracas with Chicago police after they apologized to the officers.
Obstruction charges were dropped against Ashley Biden, 21, a college student in New Orleans and the daughter of Sen. Joseph Biden (D-Del.), officials said. Battery charges were dropped against John Kaulentis, 24, of Deerfield, and Kelly Donohoe, 21, of Lake Forest, according to the Cook County state's attorney's office.
The three were arrested after an August incident outside a nightclub on West Division Street. Jerry Lawrence, a spokesman for the state's attorney's office, said the case was dropped in exchange for a public apology in Misdemeanor Court.
Wonder if Joe will use his office to get the video squashed and cover it up? I'm certain the liberal media will cover for him as well. If this had been Bristol Palin or the Bush twins, this story would be at the top of every liberal newscast and newspaper.
See you in a week and a half!
