Viewers of CNN expecting a repeat of “Shock and Awe” as coined by Rumsfeld in the start of the bombing of Bagdad, got just “Bored and Bemused” with the first air raid on Tripoli. As one viewer put it, "I’ve seen backyard fireworks displays better than that – what, a few scenes of tracers and a lot of scenes of dark night sky.

Washington DC

Committee on Homeland Security Chairman Rep. Peter King has now shifted the focus of his congressional investigation of US Muslims to their role in the recent spate of Natural Disasters both in the US and around the world. According to King, Muslims’ frequent prayers to “Allah”, the Muslim God, instead of “Jehovah” the Christian God has been the root cause of recent flooding, blizzards, earthquakes, and oil spills.
The committee plans a thorough investigation into this matter starting with their star witness, Charlie Sheen. Charlie Sheen, who also professes God-like powers and personally knows “Jehovah”, plans to testify that he has first hand knowledge that these disasters were not caused by “Jehovah”.
He also plans to ask the Committee if he can use his own God-like powers to retaliate and create natural disasters in Muslim countries that are not allied to the US.

Green Bay, Wisconsin

The Governor or Wisconsin and Republican State Senators are planning to stage a sit in a Lambeau Stadium to protest the decertification by the NFL players Union.

According to Wisconsin Governor Walker “This is an arbitrary meddling in the collective bargain process that is a fundamental right to all American Workers. This decertification move by the players union makes the likelihood that there would be no football season in 2011, and hence no Green Bay Packers games. This would be simply intolerable to this state and is grossly irresponsible, The Green Bay packers are workers just like any other workers and are entitled to collective bargaining over pensions, healthcare, and pay."

The Governor and Senators plan to camp out at Lambeau Stadium until the Players Union agree to restore collective bargaining with the NFL.
