Washington, D.C., May 9, 2009 -- During a short press availability in the White House Rose Garden, President Trent Lott announced today a plan to remake the White House and adjacent National Mall in a manner that "would reflect the glorious antebellum history and culture of the region" by converting the currently open, recreational park spaces to "small-scale agricultural production carried out by entrepreneurial families".
Atlanta, Georgia, March 22, 2007 -- Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, whose career was thought by virtually all observers to have evaporated in a hail of spittle in 1998, announced today that he will be seeking the Republican nomination for president in 2008. The former Speaker had hinted as early as the autumn of 2005 that he "could be cajoled to run, if the voice were soft and silky enough", but only with today's announcement does Mr. Gingrich's candidacy become official.
