So a Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy smuggled heroin hidden in a burrito into a courthouse jail... [KABC]

In a TV appearance peppered with several "oh lords," Sarah Palin attempts to rip into Michelle Obama's defense of her husband's presidential performance. Forgive me for being redundant but this was on Fox News. [HuffPo]
