Carville: Dean Suffering From 'Political Lobotomy': Top Clinton advisor James Carville is blasting Democratic presidential front-runner Howard Dean for making a series of devastating gaffes in recent weeks, saying the ex-Vermont governor sounds like he's suffering from a political lobotomy. "I'm scared to death that this guy just says anything..."

Ironically, Dean himself admitted two weeks ago that he's a volatile personality, saying he was so easily provoked by critics that he sometimes needs to be restrained. "If someone punches me I am apt to chase them down, and I need to be restrained by the people who know better and have been in the game longer than I have," the one-time medical doctor told MSNBC.

[William J Clinton] "Unfortunately, it's not always easy to find someone with the skill and experience to chase you down and restrain you."

Father Of The Web Becomes "Sir Tim": Time magazine once named him one of the top 20 thinkers of the 20th century. Now Queen Elizabeth II, his monarch, has made him a Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire.
The sad part is that no one in the Royal Family still has any idea who Tim Berners-Lee is -- he just picked up his knighthood in the last 8 seconds of an eBay auction.

Thief Returns Icon Of Baby Jesus: [St Paul, MN] "Sorry I took your baby Jesus. It was a childish prank," the perpetrator said in a handwritten note. "As far as his new color, I thought I would point out that Jesus was not an Aryan but actually a man of color. Although you probably knew this but would rather not be reminded...."

Dr. Henry Bowden, executive secretary of the American Society of Church History, said the dark-skinned Jesus is probably more historically accurate than the light-skinned image commonly seen in the United States.

"He was of Jewish heritage, from the eastern coast of the Mediterranean. Most Jews were swarthy, with olive skin, brown eyes, and brown or black hair..."

[Jesus Christ] "...and if anyone needs to hear it, I've been waiting to be charged with a crime at Guantánamo Bay for the last two years!"
