Illegal immigration foe Rep. Tom Tancredo retires


.... At home, Tancredo lived six doors down from Columbine High School, but he resisted calls for stronger gun control after the nation's deadliest high school shooting in 1999. He was born Catholic, but converted to the Evangelical Presbyterian Church and blasted Pope Benedict XVI for defending immigrants during a papal visit to Washington.

Tancredo was called racist for presidential campaign ads that suggested Latino immigrants are rapists and drug dealers. He once said Miami was like a Third World country because of its growing non-English-speaking population. He suggested America should threaten to destroy Islam's holy city of Mecca in case of a future terrorist attack. ...

It's unclear what may be left for him politically, though he says he's considering a 2010 run against Democratic Gov. Bill Ritter.

Last summer, Tancredo headlined a rally of the Minutemen anti-illegal immigration group at a Denver park during the Democratic National Convention. Just a couple dozen showed up.

Streisand, President Bush share awkward smooch


WASHINGTON - Barbra Streisand got an awkward kiss on the cheek from the president, and yes, she gave him a smooch back.

Streisand, a vocal critic of President George W. Bush, was a guest Sunday at the White House just before one of Washington's few A-list events: the Kennedy Center Honors.

...she said it would have been "lovely" if she could have received the award while President-elect Barack Obama was in office.

The hug and kiss between Bush and Babs - who has previously said Bush's election wins in 2000 and 2004 were stolen - was replayed later on video at a Kennedy Center gala. The crowd couldn't help but laugh.

But well worth it if it makes freeper heads explode! Would that it could thin out the gene pool.

3. That was sorta twisted, to choose GWB's last year as the
year to honor Streisand. Was it a quirk or a way to draw attention to the show, a way to be sure they filled the seats? (and sell advertisement for the television airing on the 30th?)

:shrug:

7. I suppose turning down the Kennedy Center Honor was out of the question
Not that I'm in any danger of receiving any award that includes a meeting with the president, but I'd think once or twice about accepting anything from the blood-stained greedy rookers of Commander Bunnypants.

8. By kissing that thing that sits on his shoulders I think Streisand kissed his ass.
