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 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)

Laura Bush and her extremely TOXIC husband GW Bush jr., poisoned the Republican party so much that millions left the Republican party and permanently joined the Democratic Party of compassion and the people.

Given Laura Bush's direct role in the vehicle accident which caused the death of her classmate, I'm surprised Laura Bush was not charged and convicted of vehicular manslaughter. Laura Bush chose to lay the blame on the death of her classmate on a small stop sign or safety belts or the unsafe vehicle and NONE on herself. I find that very telling.

Laura Bush was right beside her husband, the horrific Bush jr. and just like Millions of American's watched Media feeds as dozens and dozens of body's floated down the flooded streets of New Orleans while residents scrambled for their very lives as everyone except the Coast Guards few helicopters sought to help them.

Laura Bush's extremely toxic and horrific husband Bush jr. publicly stated 'Good Job Brownie' to his FEMA chief who appears to have done absolutely nothing to help the New Orleans residents during the peak of the crisis that killed many of them.

What part did Laura Bush play with that terrible lack of foresight and lack of response?

George Bush gets a belly ache and he is suspect he has been poisoned.

A despot, and former U.S. arms buyer, in Iraq 'shoots from the lip' bragging he has "weapons of mass destruction" and over 1 1/2 million people are killed or wounded, only to find out it was an exaggeration.

A Moslem fundamentalist, the strategist for the 9-11 attacks on the World Trade Center and former leader of a militia using U.S. donated weapons that were notably responsible for the former Soviet Union withdrawal from Afghanistan, takes up residence in that country. At the behest of Bush, that country is attacked and we still occupy it. Total casualties, yet to be calculated. To-date cost, over 1 trillion $$$ and counting....

It's possible he has had a bug up his posterior since birth...that ate away his ability to be a leader long before he became president. Now he is "im-Palined" to write about it and make another killing. Buy the book...if your impaled with his will only cost you around $25.00 or so, and your moral values..

Cajazz76:24:8   April 30th, 2010 6:21 pm ET

How can anyone with a "C/D" average become the president of the United States of America? Buy the book.. You too could learn to lead the country on 2milligrams of IQ...a lifetime...

I think Laura Bush is one of the most gracious First Ladies we have ever had. I look forward to reading her book.

Jane   April 30th, 2010 8:02 pm ET

I don't find any reason to criticize Laura Bush. I think she's a classy lady.

Cajazz76:24:8   April 30th, 2010 9:19 pm ET


I agree with you that Laura Bush is a classy lady. She is, however, married to the class clown. It was his book I was referencing, not hers. The other reference, in regards to her accident, was made in recognition another author's book, Ralph Nader. Laura Bush crashed her vehicle into a Corvair..while, in her words gabbing with her passenger. All can be read in her novel revelations.

Christie   April 30th, 2010 9:35 pm ET

I think she has been punished enough for the accident; afterall, she has to live with that forever. It would in no way justify manslaughter or homicide. I can understand her saying that it really bothers her that she did not visit the young man's family. Sometimes as adults we very much regret situations such as that, the fact that we should have done more. I think it's good that she tries to help young people in a similar situation.

Cajazz76:24:8   April 30th, 2010 10:19 pm ET


With more clarity..I am not criticizing her and I do have empathy for the years she spent agonizing over the accident. I do however, have a great deal of criticism for her husband who lives about 20 minutes from my home. I wish no harm to either of them, but the criticism will abound for years for his decisions made in office..

Cajazz76:24:8   April 30th, 2010 10:26 pm ET


The Corvair, my first vehicle, statement was not critical of her other than it restated facts she has in the merely gives the cause of the accident. The bigger picture in that statement was that Ralph Nader unfairly caused GM to lose millions by his book....and many, an awesome vehicle, now a collector's dream to own....

@ Smith in should know can not judge a person by their spouse. If i was judged because of my 1st husband...then I also would've been called an alcoholic!!!!

Ted   May 1st, 2010 7:57 am ET

In the old days only literate and highly intelligent persons wrote a book.
Dickens, Schakespear, Dostojevski, Tolstoy, Goethe, Schiller, Melville, Maupassant, etc., just to name a few, are even today a class of their own.

Today, anyone with an IQ of 55 can write a book, in case you cannot spell you just take a partner who can.
LKL does nothing else, but promote books on a daily base, I wonder if Larry gets a cut.

Chrisite   May 1st, 2010 8:27 am ET

Thanks for your comments. I should have acknowledged that I did not think you were criticizing her. My response was also in response to the suggestion someone had made that she should have been charged with homicide. I think some judge her harshly because they don't like her husband but, again, I realize your comments were directed at her spouse.

I happened to click into one of your shows last night on UFO’s for a segment or two. I don’t know who all four of your guests were because I clicked in to late. One of them was Dan Akroyd and another was a SETI representative of some kind. I don’t know the names of the other guests and it doesn’t matter because THEY DON’T MATTER.

I was hoping that your guests would finally talk about these evil demonic other dimensional entities who have been infiltrating our three-dimensional world for thousands of years. But that didn’t happen in the two short segments that I watched and I doubt any serious discussion was had after I clicked back out.

SETI couldn’t find an alien or other dimensional entity that was sitting in their boardroom much less in the skies above our heads.

Thank god for shows like “Coast to Coast A.M.” and George Noory, YouTube and the Internet, or the general public would remain in the dark about so many subjects that the world should be discussing. I quit listening to shows like Larry King Live, Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer and others because you NEVER TALK ABOUT THE REAL NEWS and when they do mention a really important subject matter you dismantle it so that the public does not know what is really going on. Your experts on so many subjects become the classic “Drips Under Pressure” to divert the attention of the American public AWAY FROM WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON IN THE WORLD.

We might have ameliorated as a country if Laura Bush was President and GW would have been 'first man'!

MIke   May 1st, 2010 12:28 pm ET

Her conspiracy mentality fits right in with the right wing nut jobs driving good Republicans like Charlie Crist out of what is left of the party. So keep it up Laura you and the Tea Baggers are bringing centrist and moderates to their senses.

Cindy   May 1st, 2010 8:51 pm ET

I was reminded tonight how funny she was when she spoke at the White House Correspondents Dinner. There really hasn't been anyone any funnier, although Wanda Sykes was great also; but she is a paid comedian.

Idzan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia   May 2nd, 2010 7:50 pm ET


I own two books on Laura Bush. i think she's a long-suffering wife. I wish her all the best.

Do you guys know whether Chelsea Clinton will convert to Judaism after marriage just like Ivanka Trump?

Cajazz76:24:8   May 3rd, 2010 12:16 am ET

Idzan Ismail, Kuala Lumpu,

The laws of average for a good marriage are in favor of the odds she will, otherwise, her children won't inherit the Earth or get Hannukah and Yom Kippur off from

Take care and shine that light from the Petonas Twins pinnacle so we can get a glimpse of their magnitude. Good to hear from you again. Laura Bush's new book, 'Spoken From The Heart" goes on sale May 4th, if you're interested.

Idzan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia   May 3rd, 2010 8:57 am ET


Thanks, Not a a fan of Laura.. The books were given by a friend.
You take care of yourself too.

On Chelsea, I guess her kids will also have the Clinton name just like Caroline Kennedy.
