It's time for a new semi-regular feature here at The Shelf:

You S'news, You Lose.

We take a look at some of the news items from the weekend that make us sit back and just scratch our collective nogins. You know the kind of stories I'm talking about- the ones that you just got re-read to make sure you really read that. Since it was the weekend - some media outlets release potentially harmful (to them and their causes) stories in hopes you missed them, because you were out enjoying your life. If you missed 'em- don't worry. The Shelf is on top of the situation. We'll find 'em, link'em and let you digest 'em- all in Monday morning coffee break time. So hang on- it's going to be a bumpy morning.

I'm totally serial...Al Gore treated like some kind of celebrity guru. Considering the marriage between Hollywood and Gore-- what else would we expect. Actual, intellectual critique of his ideas rather than blind devotion. Nah...that would be inconvenient.

Ray Nagin re-elected. Regulars have read our diatribes about ragin' Nagin. New Orleans- seriously - you deserve whatever you get from this fiasco.

Speaking about nawlins' - remember Rep. Jefferson, he of the National Guard movers? Well, guess who's hand was caught in the cookie jar? Despite this, he will probably profess innocence and then at a later date stage a press conference in which he will recount difficulties and hardships with tears in his eyes. If he manages to get away with this, the people of New Orleans will probably re-elect him.

Murtha is now claiming that Iraq is now worse than pre-war Iraq. This guy is getting worse everyday. Pennsylvania - I don't want to tell you what to do- but consider your options carefully before voting day. This chowderhead can't be worth it. Perhaps he ought to ask a few Iraqis instead of sniffing his own gas, a la South Park. Gateway Pundit has the story.

Next on the merry-go-round... It turns out that the badges story we linked to last post may be false- the original news link is now running an article in which Iranian officials deny that the law was even brought up. Some still believe it was passed. Allahpundit over at Hot Air has the back and forth. This will remain on the "watch" list.

Lastly - we would like to call your attention to a new addition to The Shelf community... Stop the ACLU. Perhaps you are no stranger to STA, neither are we, and they stay on top of the pulse of what's happening out there- not just with the ridiculous machinations of the A.C.L.U.. If you heard about the High School Graduation prayer incident this weekend- you'll understand why this political advocacy group that refers to itself as the A.C.L.U. is none to concerned with real liberties. Go on over and visit Stop The ALCU and tell 'em Loophole sent ya'.

Tomorrow is media roundup day. Some great stuff hit the Shelf ...stay tuned.

Oh, I know it's a penny here and a penny there, but look at me. I worked myself up from nothing to a state of extreme poverty.

I never went in for embroidery, just results .
