Just moments before the final Senate vote, the United States Senate adopted

Last night I'm watching a program on the Discovery Channel called "Conspiracy Files." I've seen other episodes of this program and it treats neither the fringe-Art-Bell-types nor the the-government-wouldn't-do-such-a-thing-types as above question. Neither side is presented as gospel.
thanks for the link, we'll give it a read.

Meanwhile, after naming their first-born girl Moxie CrimeFighter last June, comedian Penn Jillette and wife came up with something a bit more mainstream for their new son--Zolten Penn, who was born Monday. "Zolten is a common Hungarian name, it's my wife's maiden name and most importantly, it's the name of Dracula's dog," said Jillette.

Breitbart [via Drudge] brings us this little tale of drunk driving times eighteen.
Lithuanian [Massachusetts] police were so astonished when they pulled over a truck driver [Senator] and his breathalyzer test registered 18 times the legal alcohol limit, they thought their testing device must be broken. It wasn't.
Police said Tuesday [...] Vidmantas Sungaila [Ted and/or Patrick Kennedy] registered 7.27 grams per liter of alcohol in his blood repeatedly on different devices when he was pulled over for driving his truck [limo] down the center of a two-lane highway 60 miles from the capital, Vilnius on Saturday.
Lithuania's [Massachusetts'] legal limit is 0.4 grams per liter.
"This guy should have been lying dead, but he was still driving. It
must be an unofficial national record," Saulius Skvernelis, the director of the
national police traffic control service, told the AP.
"He was of high spirits and grinning the whole time he was questioned."
Medical experts say anything above 3.5 grams per liter of alcohol in the
blood is lethal for most people.
Reuters brings us this little tidbit about a closet environment-hater who used to be veep destroying the ozone layer and contributing to global warming [emphasis mine.]:
AL GORE THE ENVIRONMENTALIST?
Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore appears to have let the glamour of
Cannes get the better of him. In town to promote documentary "An Inconvenient Truth", about global warming and risks to the environment, he and his companions took five cars to travel from the Carlton Hotel to the Palace where films are shown during the festival. Due to the traffic, the 500-metre trip would have been quicker to walk.
Mr Gore said global warming was a "challenge to our moral imagination to understand it and then to respond to it urgently".
Dutch troops are either antigay or unicornphobic. I can't decide which.
Dutch troops in Afghanistan have renamed their peacekeeping operation, fearing that the original name of Unicorn has homosexual connotations, the Defence Ministry said.
"It would seem that in Anglo-Saxon culture the mythological figure of the unicorn is associated with homosexuality," ministry spokesman Otte Beeksma told AFP.
"In Kandahar our men are working alongside Canadian, British and Australian troops," Beeksma added. "They don't want this connotation and to avoid remarks they have changed the name of their mission."

Flint, Michigan, power company wins pissing contest, goes on a power trip against woman who wasn't playing.
It was just a penny, but to Consumers Energy it was enough to cut off power in a local home. Jacqueline Williams, 41, of Flint had an electricity bill of
$1,662.08 and paid all of it, except for one cent. That wasn't enough for the
power company, which blacked her out for seven hours Wednesday.

Another day, another Kennedy substance-abuse problem.
Kennedy said in a statement he had taken a sleeping pill and another drug that can cause drowsiness, but had not been drinking alcohol before the accident. "Apparently, I was disoriented from the medication," Kennedy said. He scheduled a news conference for 3 p.m. EDT Friday in Washington.
The police report described Kennedy as "ability impaired," and listed alcohol influence as a contributing circumstance in the crash.
Louis P. Cannon, president of the Washington chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police, who was not on the scene, said the congressman had appeared intoxicated when he crashed his car. The officers involved in the accident were instructed by an official "above the rank of patrolman" to take Kennedy home and no sobriety tests were conducted at the scene, Cannon said.
Now, let's see if the Left goes after him the way they did Rush.
[Update 2 via Drudge: Patty goes to Mayo.]
"I simply do not remember getting out of bed, being pulled over by the
police, or being cited for three driving infractions," Kennedy said.

| You scored as Libertarian. Libertarians believe that you have the right to live your life as you wish, without the government interfering, as long as you donâ??t violate the rights of others. This translates into strong protections for privacy and property rights, and a weak to non-existent social safety net.|

It seems Dean and the Democrats like gays only as long as they don't get too big for their britches.
Democratic Party Chair Howard Dean on May 2 fired the party's gay outreach advisor Donald Hitchcock less than a week after Hitchcock's domestic partner, Paul Yandura, a longtime party activist, accused Dean of failing to take stronger action to defend gays.
"This is retaliation, plain and simple," said Yandura. "This shows what they think about domestic partners."
Yandura said Tuesday night that Dean was using Hitchcock as a "scapegoat" for problems of Dean's own making.
"All I did was ask questions about what the party and Dean are doing about its GLBT constituency, Yandura said. "I have yet to see any answers."

It's a perfectly street-legal VW, too, with current California registration and smog-approved gas-burning front engine made by Volkswagen.
