Wombat's Thursday News

Or some of the more interesting (to me) selections from Wombat-socho's "Live at FiveSix: 12.11.14"

Dick Cheney: Senate Committee’s CIA Report “Full Of Crap” - You don't say?

Spending Bill In Danger As Pelosi Demands Changes And Conservatives Peel Off - Not happy with decreased control over conservative fund raising, and liberal control over banks. I wonder if the Dems will shut down the government over it.

ScarJo learns a lesson:  Scarlett Johansson: Motherhood Is “Magical – And Exhausting”
The first-time mama admits she’s happy to take on the more tedious tasks of a newborn: diaper duty and late-night feeds.

“[I do] the whole bit,” she says. “I’m nursing and I love it.”

But breastfeeding isn’t just about bonding with her baby girl. “It’s the best way to get back in shape,” Johansson shares.
Babies just don't don't know how good they've got it.

State Department Stonewalling Requests For Hillary Files - Hillary is hiding things?  I just can't imagine that.
The AP requested copies of Clinton's full schedules and calendars from her four years as secretary of state; her department's decision to grant a special position for longtime aide Huma Abedin; Clinton's and the agency's roles in the Osama bin Laden raid and National Security Agency surveillance practices; and her role overseeing a major Defense Department contractor. The AP made most of its requests last summer, although one was filed in March 2010.

"We sincerely regret the delay," said Lela H. Ross of the Office of Information Programs and Services, which administers the agency's requests. The official did not explain the delays but cited the agency's "complex and lengthy administrative FOIA process."
Still, the royal in-law noted that she found the spread rather questionable. "But the Kim butt story did make me pause," Pippa wrote. "What is it with this American booty culture? It seems to me to be a form of obsession. Kim’s aim, apparently, was to break the internet, but I’m not sure she’s going the right way about it."
So what is it with this British boobie culture, as exemplified by the Page 3 girls? It's seem to me to be a form of obsession. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I'd much rather gaze on Lucy Pinder's ta-tas than a Kardashian tush. Or even Pippa's.

Multiemployer Pensions Could Face Cuts - Government doesn't have enough money to pay off all the failing union retirement plans. What cannot be sustained, won't.

Brad Pitt doesn’t want his daughters to get tattoos
Angelina Jolie says Brad Pitt does not want their kids to adopt their love of tattoos.

In fact, the 39-year-old “Unbroken” director says, Pitt, 50, is having a hard time imagining his daughters with ink.

The couple, who quietly tied the knot in France in August, have six children: twins Vivienne and Knox, 6, Shiloh, 8, Zahara, 9, Pax, 11, and Maddox, 13.

“They’re already asking me about tattoos,” Jolie told Radio Times after saying Maddox has already asked for a tattoo and Zahara has begun exploring her curiosity.

“How do I say ‘No’? It’s especially hard for dads and girls,” she said. “For some reason, men get a little more sensitive when the daughter gets a tattoo.”
What father wouldn't want his little girl to get all tattoo, and look more available.

Just one more celebrity piece: Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons Set to Star in 'Fargo' Season 2
The sophomore season will revisit the 1979 Sioux Falls incident referenced in the freshman run's "A Fox, a Rabbit, and a Cabbage" episode when Molly's (Allison Tolman) father Lou Solverson (Keith Carradine) was still a state trooper. Season two will take place in Fargo, N.D., Sioux Falls, S.D., and Luverne, Minn., Hawley said, with a new actor coming in to play the younger Lou character.
Can Fargo work as an ongoing series?  I hope so, the last one was great:
