Ironic Headlines of the Day

Chuck Norris says McCain too old for presidency -- Associated Press

Hell, isn't 70 the new 50?

Why Have Abortion Rates Fallen? -- Time

Russia bombers to test-fire missiles in Atlantic -- Reuters

"Russia bombers to test-fire missiles in Atlantic"

Now that's ironic!

If Huckabee is elected, the stress of the job will probably cause him to start over-eating again, and we'll have a 400 lb President in office by the end of his term.
