Barack's and Michelle's Anger Shocks, Devastates White House Party Attendees

White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs on Barack and Michelle Obama: "He was angry. Michelle was angry." Alleged party crasher Tareq Salahi: We're "shocked, devastated" and "greatly saddened."

Viva la France?

I have a french-manufactured double barreled shotgun I use for bird hunting. It's a beautiful shotgun, but I take some ribbing for it when people learn it is French-made. I usually offer my pat answer, "Yeah, made in France, never fired, and dropped only once."
