Meanest Mom EVER!

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Jane Hambleton has dubbed herself the "meanest mom on the planet."

After finding alcohol in her son's car, she decided to sell the car and share her 19-year-old's misdeed with everyone -- by placing an ad in the local newspaper.

The ad reads: "OLDS 1999 Intrigue. Totally uncool parents who obviously don't love teenage son, selling his car. Only driven for three weeks before snoopy mom who needs to get a life found booze under front seat. $3,700/offer. Call meanest mom on the planet."

Hambleton has heard from people besides interested buyers since recently placing the ad in The Des Moines Register.

The 48-year-old from Fort Dodge says she has fielded more than 70 telephone calls from emergency room technicians, nurses, school counselors and even a Georgia man who wanted to congratulate her.

"The ad cost a fortune, but you know what? I'm telling people what happened here," Hambleton says. "I'm not just gonna put the car for resale when there's nothing wrong with it, except the driver made a dumb decision.

"It's overwhelming the number of calls I've gotten from people saying 'Thank you, it's nice to see a responsible parent.' So far there are no calls from anyone saying, 'You're really strict. You're real overboard, lady."'

The only critic is her son, who Hambleton says is "very, very unhappy" with the ad and claims the alcohol was left by a passenger.

Hambleton believes her son but has decided mercy isn't the best policy in this case. She says she set two rules when she bought the car at Thanksgiving: No booze, and always keep it locked.

The car has been sold, but Hambleton says she will continue the ad for another week -- just for the feedback.

So good..

Goals for 2008

I'm putting it in bits and bytes.. 2008 is a milestone year in the birthday department, and I am NOT hitting that milestone in my current physical condition.

So it technically started Monday, but actually started today. That's right.. a trip to the Gym. At least 3 times a week would be great.. but I'm a realist.. If I can get there on Tuesday and Thursday I'll be thrilled.

I might post progress, I might not. You'll have to check back.

NH what have you done?

Hillary Clinton, John McCain Win New Hampshire Primary

NH, I can only hope that when you wake up in the morning you'll have recovered from the obvious blow to your collective heads.

WTF are you folks thinking anyway?! Good lord...

All the 50+ biddies who still have wet dreams when they hear Gloria Steinham speak about feminism are who saved Hillary's ass. She is Satan in a dress; wake up NH. The uniformed public seem to like her better when she cries; maybe Bubba should publicly screw around on her again to jet her campaign! The thought of that family in the White House again make me want to puke!
