It seems that the Arab press is having problems with news stories about Frances' new Prime Minister, Jean-Marc Ayrault. It seems that his name translates in Arabic to "his penis". Makes the News Hour a little awkward.

We had both a Dick as president, and a Dick as VP, and both were corrupt. The Dick with a new heart is pushing MD to allow gay marriage, for his daughter.

I was told by an Iraqi co-worker back in the day, that "DOLE" meant DICK!

Not "penis", but "DICK"!

"Bob Dole thinks that 'Bob Dole's' name shouldn't be made fun of."

(That impersonation is actually funny if you could hear me do it and see me with a pen in my hand...)

Dan Akroyd did the BEST Bob Dole impersonation.

"His name's not 'Pierre'... it's 'PETE'! I know it, you know it, the American people KNOW it!"

Nuclear Plant Has Been Leaking For Four Years

According to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Entergy Corp has allowed highly radioactive waste to leak into a contained area at the FitzPatrick nuclear power plant for the last four years.

The FitzPatrick plant is near Oswego, New York, but the NRC has said that the leak "poses no immediate risks to any residents or the environment."
