COMMERCE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – Police say a man dressed as a woman repeatedly crashed his car into a suburban Detroit lingerie store that had refused to hire him earlier this year.
Oakland County Undersheriff Michael McCabe said Jeremy McIntosh, 27, was arrested Saturday night outside the Intimate Ideas store in Commerce Township, 25 miles northwest of Detroit. Damage to the store was estimated at $3,000.
McCabe said McIntosh was wearing “facial makeup, lipstick, blue Capri pants, red ‘flip-flops,’ a flowery blouse and a matching flowery women’s bra.” McIntosh told deputies he is homeless and wanted to go to jail because he had nowhere else to go.
McIntosh remained jailed after his Monday arraignment on charges including malicious destruction of property
Wading back into the Democratic presidential race, billionaire businessman Bob Johnson said Monday that Sen. Barack Obama would not be his party’s leading candidate if he were white.
Johnson’s comments to the Observer echoed those of former vice presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro. She stepped down as an adviser to Sen. Hillary Clinton last month after saying Obama wouldn’t be where he is if he were white.
“What I believe Geraldine Ferraro meant is that if you take a freshman senator from Illinois called `Jerry Smith’ and he says I’m going to run for president, would he start off with 90 percent of the black vote?” Johnson said. “And the answer is, probably not… .”
“Geraldine Ferraro said it right. The problem is, Geraldine Ferraro is white. This campaign has such a hair-trigger on anything racial … it is almost impossible for anybody to say anything.”
Johnson, who made a fortune after founding Black Entertainment Television and now owns the Charlotte Bobcats, is a longtime friend of Clinton and her husband, the former president.
RAMALLAH, West Bank – Former President Jimmy Carter today warmly embraced a top Hamas terrorist and laid a wreath on the gravesite of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, whom Carter called a “peace fighter” and a “dear friend,” according to Palestinian officials speaking to WND.
Visiting the West Bank city of Ramallah, Carter attended a reception with Nasser Shaer, a senior Hamas leader. The reception was closed to the media, but according to participants and the Hamas leader, Carter hugged Shaer and kissed him on each cheek, the customary greeting for good friends. Many U.S. diplomats refrain from kissing Palestinian officials.
“He gave me a hug. We hugged each other, and it was a warm reception,” Shaer told the Associated Press. “Carter asked what he can do to achieve peace between the Palestinians and Israel … and I told him the possibility for peace is high.”
It was said during the Carter years, his mother Lillian had the largest boobs ever known. Jimmy and Billy. Those saying it, were right on.
James Lileks has coined a new word for all us God-clinging gun-nut anti-NAFTA fools.
I like it.

Melbourne has seriously cool gardens. The one above is just metres from St Kilda Road, one of the busiest roads leading into and out of the city. Yet it’s just so damn tranquil, and so beautiful.

Dr. Daniel Pipes is here on thursday evening. His topic? “Threats to the existence of Israel: why it’s back and how to deal with it.”
I don’t know about anyone else, but I am so there.
Where: Monash University: ROOM K321, Caulfield campus, 900 Dandenong Rd, Caulfield
When: 8pm start, thursday April 17th.
I’ve spoken to the organisers (AIJAC) and that room has seating for about 150 people, and it’s on a first come first served basis. In the event of abuse from the lovely Friends of Paleostinians, campus security will be on guard, and the usual mode of operation for Dr Pipes is to stop talking until said abusers either settle down or are kicked out on their arses/removed from the room.
Any Melbournistan anti-jihadis are welcome to drop me a line beforehand to catch up – the more the merrier.
