After a 420-1 vote Wednesday night, congressman James Trafficant became only the second member of Congress since the Civil War to be kicked out of the House of Representatives.

He's also the first elected government official to be kicked out of the house since Bill Clinton was president.

The one member to vote against expulsion was California congressman Gary Condit.

Condit defended his vote by saying “It wasn't like he killed somebody or anything.”

Particularly if that boyfriend is Billy Bob Thornton.

Erica Pratt, the 7-year-old girl abducted from a southwest Philadelphia street Monday, freed herself by chewing through the duct tape that bound her and breaking through a screened window to call for help, police said.

Once she was out on the street, she was able to quickly get the police's attention by screaming “Help! Allen Iverson just kicked me out of his house!”.

The Rev. Al Sharpton has criticized a 19-year-old FBI surveillance tape of him discussing a drug deal, claiming the recording is part of a campaign to smear his name.

After the Tawana Brawly hoax, if there's one person who knows about “smear” campaigns, it's Al Sharpton.

The tape was recorded as part of a government investigation into whether boxing promoter Don King had ties with organized crime.

Investigating whether Don King has ties with organized crime sounds about as challenging as investigating whether Osama bin Laden has any ties with terrorist organizations.

Harold Shipman, a doctor in Britain who was convicted of the murders of 15 women in January 2000, has also been found responsible for the deaths of another 200 people by a public inquiry.

See, this is a perfect example of why health care is actually much better here in the United States. In this country, half of those people wouldn't have gone to the doctor in the first place since they wouldn't even HAVE health care.

The FBI's top counterterrorism official said Wednesday he believes al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden is probably dead.

Well, gee, if the FBI says bin Laden is dead then you know what that means – he's probably living in Washington D.C. under his real name.

London tabloids are reporting that Prince Harry, second son of heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles, consumed six bottles of a vodka-based drink at a Polo Club bash.

He's a 17 year old kid and they're making him go to a POLO CLUB, for crying out loud. It's a wonder he is isn't drinking more!

Harry's actions are not illegal.

No, but they are pretty pretentious.

Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi has said there is no evidence to prove his country is behind any acts of terrorism.

Isn't that about the same as Bill Clinton saying he didn't have sex with Monica Lewinsky?

Speaking on Wednesday, he said Libya was at the forefront of the battle against terrorists.

Turns out his 401k had lots of WorldComm stock, too.

The sellout crowd loudly chanted “Let them play!” and “Refund!” Tuesday night at the baseball All-Star Game, after the game was declared a 7-7 tie after 11 innings because both teams ran out of pitchers.

The crowd was so mad that the whole event started to look like a WorldCom stockholders meeting.

In fact, it got so bad that the fans started chucking their souvenir Ted Williams popsicles onto the field
