This was at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela in South Africa. First Lady Michelle Obama is not amused with President Obama. That's going to be a looooooong flight home.

YOU MUST REMEMBER THE GOVERNMENT shutdown in early October. What you probably didn't know is the State Department went on a booze spending spree in the weeks leading up to the shutdown, at least according to the Washington Times. With the fiscal year ending the 30th of September, they needed to spend all of their cash or risk congress cutting their budget next year. So they spent $11,550 on "gratuity whiskey" and "gratuity wine" at the embassy in Rio, $22,416 for wine at the embassy in Tokyo, and $15,900 for bourbon and whiskey in Moscow. Your tax dollars at work.
NOT EXACTLY SURE WHY THIS IS HAPPENING, but I've got to believe it's for security. The NFL announced you may not "tailgate" at next years Super Bowl in New Jersey, although you MAY tailgate in your car. No grills, no lounge chairs and you may occupy just one parking space. You will not be permitted to take a taxi or limo to the stadium and your car must have a pass or you won't get anywhere near the ballpark. Your car must then stay in the lot until the end of the game. You cannot be dropped off for the game but you may take certain public transportation or something called the Fan Express at a cost of $51. By the way, the weather in New Jersey is rotton in January so I think I'll just stay home and watch it on television.
THIS IS ONE OF THOSE STORIES THAT MAKE you go hmmmmm...According to a recent study, marijuana causes "manboobs" in some animals. What about people? Not so much. So if you see your tomcat smoking a joint, put a stop to it NOW!
OUR BUDDY GEORGE ZIMMERMAN HAS APPARENTLY kissed and made up with his girlfriend, you know, the one who accused him of threatening her. A recent story from NBC news reports she believes her statement to the police, when SHE called them, was misunderstood. She told police that he pointed a gun at her in a threatening manner. Now she has changed her story and wants the "stay away" court order revoked. She does not fear him at all. I, on the other hand would not want to run into this guy anywhere (especially after dark).
HERE'S ONE WE'LL TALK ABOUT ON WEDNESDAY'S show. Rand Paul was in Michigan recently (Detroit) in an effort to welcome black folks to the party (the GOP party that is). This was part of the Republicans attempt to widen their tent. Many people turned out, but according to those with video of the comings and goings, the crowd that attended was overwhelmingly white. At least it's a start.
JOIN ME TOMORROW AT 9am ON 640 WHLO. Jim
