Quick Hits 2/16/11

++New White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney, had a rough first day at the podium.  He punted on a question regarding Iran, fumbled a national debt question, and, finally, blamed Bush!!!  Welcome another Ivy Leaguer to the Obama staff.  Carney, former mouth-piece for VP Biden (the stumble master), looks like the local Geek Squad employee from Best Buy!  Some things never change!

++IBM’s computer, Watson, kicked butt on Jeopardy!  Ken Jennings, who won 74 consecutive games, and Brad Rutter, the highest $$ winner ever, took it in the shorts!  Beware of the machines!!  The Terminator is waiting!

++Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) told 60 Minutes that he had been molested by his step-father and a camp counselor starting when he was 10 years old.  He also said that the interview would be his family’s first time to hear about the incidents.  He wouldn’t tell his mom before a national TV audience!  Not so cool, Mr. One-Timer!

++Andy Warhol’s self portrait sold for $17 million in London!  Would you pay $17 million for a picture of this guy??  I guess the economy is not so bad after all!!  Oh, boy!!

++Leon Panetta, CIA Director, said that if Osama Bin Laden was captured, he would be sent to Guantanamo  in Cuba!  Wait…didn’t you get the memo, Leon, we have closed Guantanamo!  Oops, sorry, Guantanamo has not been closed yet!  Oh, those pesky campaign promises!!

++Michael Vick, Eagles QB, has “no-showed” for a shot at Oprah!  It seems that Michael doesn’t want to discuss his dog-killing days or his childhood!  Good for you, Mick!  Just pass the football and stay away from the big “O”!
