Authorities are considering charges in the bizarre case of a woman who sat on her boyfriend's toilet for two years -- so long that her body was stuck to the seat by the time the boyfriend finally called police.
Ness County Sheriff Bryan Whipple said it appeared the 35-year-old Ness City woman's skin had grown around the seat. She initially refused emergency medical services but was finally convinced by responders and her boyfriend that she needed to be checked out at a hospital.
"We pried the toilet seat off with a pry bar and the seat went with her to the hospital," Whipple said. "The hospital removed it."
A neighbor said "it really didn't surprise him." The Heartland must have a high standard for the bizarre.
Observe the White House communications team in action:
Bush favors Romney as vice-president, reports Fred Barnes, the same Fred Barnes who penned the Bush valentine, "Rebel-in-Chief." (Sample passage: "Success in at least laying the foundation for representative government in Iraq had many authors … but one in particular stands out. That's Bush.")
The next day, human GOP talking point Sean Hannity "interviews" Romney, who affirms his desire to be McCain's running mate.
“I think any Republican leader in this country would be honored to be asked to serve as the vice presidential nominee, myself included. Of course this is a nation which needs strong leadership. And if the nominee of our party asked you to serve with him, anybody would be honored to receive that call … and to accept it, of course.”
McCain hates Romney, of course, but picking him might help assuage crotchety right wingers. I'd rather he told them to go fuck themselves.
Not all are blinded by enforced gender identity --
"I can't see that Hillary would appeal to feminists because, why is she there? She is there because she is Bill's wife, and it's a bit useless to pretend, 'Oh, it's because of her wonderful job as a senator.'" Germaine Greer, who says Clinton is "brassy and cold and manipulative."
"The arrogant, self-absorbed Clintons have shown their unscrupulous hand to all who have eyes to see. Yes, Hillary may know the labyrinthine flow chart of the Washington bureaucracy, but her peripheral experiences as a gallivanting first lady scarcely qualify her to be commander in chief. On the contrary, her constant resort to schmaltzy videos and cheap entertainment riffs ("The Sopranos," "Saturday Night Live") has been depressingly unpresidential. Is this how she would govern? All that canned "softening" of Hillary's image would have been unnecessary had she had greater personal resources to begin with. Her cutesy campaign has set a bad precedent for future women candidates, who should stand on their own as proponents of public policy." Camille Paglia
Naturally there have been shifts in the race since Feb. 5th, but they tend to favor Obama. So why are white voters flocking to Hillborg -- and not just in Mississippi? Seventy percent of white Dems in Ohio supported Clinton.
One could imagine the Professor and Ginger sharing a big fattie. Today we learned of Mary Ann's habit.
It goes deeper than that; turns out Mary Ann was the island's dealer. The wholesome Kansas farm girl act was merely a clever ruse.
In 1998, (Bob) Denver was arrested when he signed for a FedEx delivery of 30 grams of marijuana. ... Reports at the time suggested that Denver's Gilligan co-star Dawn Wells had arranged the shipment, that his checkbook included several suspicious payments to Wells, and that prosecutors were pressuring him to name Wells as his supplier. Instead, Denver testified that "some crazy fan must have sent it."
