Politics is King! Possible poisoning, 'Nerd Prom,' and losing weight
Posted: 04:37 PM ET
In national politics this week, President Obama left D.C. for "Main Street," and Goldman Sachs execs wished the could have left D.C. for - well, anywhere really.
Meanwhile, illegal immigration took center stage. Arizona passed a new law that will end up in the courts faster than you can swim across the Rio Grande.
And speaking of water...now all eyes are on the Gulf Coast to see how bad the oil spill gets. Seriously, how hard is it to put a bottle cap back on.
However, as we do every week here on the LKL blog, we want to share some political stories you may have missed:
1. In her new book, Laura Bush suggests that she, her husband, "and several members of their staff may have been poisoned during a visit to Germany," when "they all became mysteriously sick" (New York Times).
2. Chelsea Clinton is asking her father, President Bill Clinton, to lose FIFTEEN POUNDS before her summer nuptials. That means NO McDonalds. (Politico)
3. So, a Supreme Court Justice walks into a bathroom and sees a U.S. Senator and the senator says.... (The Hill)
4. A-list celebrities are descending upon our nation's capital this weekend to attend what is dubbed as the "Nerd Prom," the annual White House Correspondent's Dinner. Our fearless host, Larry, will be there – as for the rest, it's easier for you to just click HERE to see who else will be attending the event. (Politico)
5. "I've been sleeping with a teacher for a long time" - Vice President Joe Biden (HuffingtonPost)
