First-Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton introduced herself to Congress this week as a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister and a woman. Hillary is currently being treated for a Multiple Personality Disorder, which, incidentally, is not covered by the new Health Plan.
The First Lady dazzled Congressional committees in selling the plan, thus rewriting the old saying, "Behind every great woman is a chubby guy in goofy running shorts."
A CNN-USA Today poll says Americans believe Hillary is smarter than Bill by a vote of 40% to 22%. The President took it in stride, saying, "No big deal, it's only an 8% difference."
General Colin Powell officially retired from the Army Thursday. At the ceremony, the President explained to the General exactly what would be inappropriate behavior for gays in the military.
Figures from the latest polls have just come in - 29%, 48%, and 11%.
Anti-violence advocates contend that violence on TV is directly linked to the rise of violence in society, and officials are doing nothing about it. They even pointed out that some cartoons such as the Road Runner are violent, resulting in a proposed bill calling for a mandatory 5-day waiting period before the purchase of an anvil, or any ACME product, including TNT detanators and strap-on rockets.
In lieu of the latest string of murders in Florida, Hertz has unveiled its new line of rentals near the airport.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg took her seat on the Supreme Court today, the first time two women sat on the nation's highest court. She said the first day turned out ot be a little uncomfortable, since they both showed up wearing the same outfit.
The Food and Drug Administration says that glow-in-the-dark condoms may not be safe for their intended use, so, until further notice, no reading in bed, please.
Kevin Nealon: And now, on the lighter side, it's time for Rob Scheinder's Wacky Sports Bloopers. Rob?
Rob Schneider: Thank you, Kevin. We've got a load of hilarious miscues and foul-ups this week, so let's go right to the videotape!

Finally, for the Sports Blooper of the Week, let's go to pro-tennis tour. Stephan Edward tries to serve, and - wow! Watch carefully - later in the same match.. whoa-oa-oa! Almost the exact same thing! Better check that racquet, Stephan!
Kevin Nealon: [ laughing ] Rob, where did you find all these bloopers?
Rob Schneider: Hours and hours of research, Kevin.
Kevin Nealon: I'll bet! Well, it was definitely worth the wait! Rob Schneider, ladies and gentlemen.
Tammy Faye Bakker was married this afternoon in Palm Springs, California, to Ro Messner, as old family friend. Speaking for "Weekend Update", I'd like to apologize to Tammy Faye for all those jokes we did about her in the past, and also to extend our deepest sympathy to her new husband.
In a related story, the wedding was good news at the federal prison in Jessup, Georgia, where his fellow inmates are happy that Jim Bakker is now completely unattached.
Well, sexy covers sell. The hands-on-topless trend gained momentum this spring, with sexy covers of Sharon Stone clutching herself, Kate Moss, Madeline Stowe, and Janet Jackson. Keeping up with the trend next week, will be U.S. News & World Report with its Norman Schwartzkoff cover.
