A university professor who has never held elected office just knocked the GOP’s #2 guy out of the Virginia primary. House Republican leader Eric Cantor spent a fortune on his campaign but at the end of the day, couldn’t name enough positive points about himself in a :30 TV ad.
Riot police in Sao Paulo, Brazil are battling angry throngs of subway workers who went on strike right before the start of the FIFA World Cup. It’s so violent it’s starting to look like a soccer riot. There’s a video of the violence on YouTube where the police are chanting "FIFA-Fo-Fun, we smell the blood of a striking-Brazilian." Brazil is catching heat for not being ready for the World Cup; no subway service, busted roads, unfinished stadiums. If they keep this up they might be charged with impersonating the Sochi Winter Olympics.
Believe it or not, Hillary Clinton says that she and Bill left the White House completely broke. Settling all those lawsuits was expensive! I hope to one day be as wealthy as the Clintons were when they were broke.
Clippers ex owner Donald Sterling now says he’s not selling the team. Again. I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to doubt this guy’s character.
And a few things you need to know…
On this date in 1947, sugar rationing in the U.S. ended. Maybe that’s something we need to bring back.
On this date in 2002, Paul McCartney married Heather Mills. That's like the "Pearl Harbor Day" of Beatles fans. Speaking of, Sir Paul is still recovering from his recent bout of plague and cancelled his entire Japan tour. He’s feeling Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club bland.
Michael Jackson's three kids are receiving an $8-million allowance. You know, with budgeting, you could make that work.
And … Kate Hudson says she's not going to judge someone for getting fanny implants. OK, I guess I didn't know the job was open?
