Acts of Random Drudgery

One of the few resolutions I pretended to make entering the new year this time around was to avoid linking any story from Drudge or Instapundit. It's not like people are flocking here in droves for late-breaking news. Anyway, I figure I'd start by breaking that resolution with this Drudge Report three-fer.

Thanks, But No Thanks...


Hi, I'm Richard Gere, and I'm speaking for the entire world.

All Things Considered...

I'd rather have Ashlee "No-talent Pop-tart Hack" Simpson as my spokesperson.

Hey, What Do You Know?

There are two America's after all. Just consider yourself lucky not to live in the one inhabited by U.S. Representative John Conyers - D(uh) and his compassionate "progressive" staffers.

The director of a Detroit food bank wants to know what happened to 60 turkeys -- 720 pounds of frozen birds -- that his charity gave to members of U.S. Rep. John Conyers' local staff two days before Thanksgiving to give to needy people.

Conyers' Detroit office promised an accounting of any turkey distribution by Dec. 27, but the Gleaners Community Food Bank had received no paperwork as of Tuesday, said the charity's director, Agostinho Fernandes.

Fernandes said he became suspicious that the turkeys didn't get to poor people after hearing from a friend that a federal court worker had said he was offered free turkeys from a member of Conyers' staff.

The Party of the People: Stealing Christmas turkeys from the poor and down-trodden, and authoring legislation that would forcibly ship their kids off to war.

What's not to like?
