Midnight News -- 8/18/06

The Russian navy shot at a Japanese fishing boat that had entered waters near the Kurile islands, killing one fisherman. Now, the Russians are going to escalate the controversy by charging the fishermen with "poaching and intruding into Russian waters."

There are certain jokes that no one should make, and that conservatives should be especially careful to avoid. A Republican congressional candidate in Florida has failed this basic test of common sense. I don't care how innocuous the joke really was, he should have known better than to make it.

A motley collection of British leftists, fellow travellers, and aspiring dhimmis has a hate fest over George Bush. Note their peculiar obsession with Bush's unwillingness to indulge Palestinian terrorism. It's almost as if they didn't want Israel around at all.

NFL washout, stalker, and former Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett owes money to an Israeli mobster, and has faced death threats over the past year.

Phoenix police may be zeroing in on the Baseline Killer. Along with the Phoenix snipers, he's terrorized the city for a number of months.

I totally dig this cat.

Violent gangs of yuppies terrorize the Chicago lakefront. Some come on bikes, some come on roller blades, and some come running, but all are united in their thirst for the blood of pedestrians. It's a blood bath on the shores of Lake Michigan. Shattered razor phones litter the streets. Empty bottles of Dasani are crafted into crude weapons. Victims of latte burns crowd the hospitals. The police can do nothing to halt the social breakdown, and a once-great city is paralyzed.

M. Night Shyamalan perhaps drives his stars to drink. First it was Mel Gibson, now it's Haley Joel Osment.
