A prospective lawyer for William Jefferson Clinton on some faraway day when things really get tough for him makes an audacious argument for the accused in Connecticut Superior Court:
The lawyer for a Shelton man accused of sexually assaulting his neighbor’s horse claimed Thursday the case has been blown out of proportion.
“If this was a guy and a sheep in Litchfield, and I’ve had a few of those cases, this would not have gotten nearly the media attention it has,” said Ralph Crozier, who represents 63-year-old Marian Wegiel.
“But I guess because a horse is higher off the ground it leaves a little more to the imagination.”
Wegiel, of 11 Partridge Lane, is charged with cruelty to animals, fourth-degree sexual assault, third-degree criminal trespass, and second-degree breach of the peace in the October 18 incident.

Esoteric thoughts of a socio-political nature uttered by Grammy Award-winning singer and part-time yoga instructor Mr. Garth Brooks on the occasion of his performance at the Points of Light Institute’s ceremony honoring former president George H. W. Bush. And seriously, friends, refrain from laughing. This is just the way Garth cerebrates when he does not have a guitar in his hands:
The whole political system kind of has me concerned right now to tell you the truth — 200 years old and we might think of about, you know, kind of kicking it in the ass a little bit. It just seems like we vote for things because they’re Republican or Democratic….I think we should vote for them because they’re right or wrong and we kind of have seemed to have fallen into that trap so that would be the one warning I would give all us….Put down where you’re from and what flag you fly under and let’s get to putting the best person, man or women in office and let’s start making some strides.

Shocking exposé of Ronald W. Reagan as president proffered by historian Eric Alterman, endowed by a grant from the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library and Trailer Camp:
The same cannot be said of Ronald Reagan. We have, for instance, contemporaneous reports that Reagan apparently was a pathological liar. He bragged of liberating concentration camps in Germany although he spent all of World War II in Hollywood. He invented “a verbal message” from the pope in support of his Central America policies and lied about that too. He insisted, in 1985, that the leader of South Africa’s vicious apartheid regime, P. W. Botha, had “eliminated the segregation that we once had in our own country.” Pants on fire…
We also know from contemporaneous reports that Reagan approved of genocide when committed by professed anticommunists.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
