Happy Monday! Today on the DGS we’ll talk to Former Senator Jim Talent at 5pm, focusing on Benghazi and the latest with the IRS targeting conservatives.
A Canadian astronaut named Chris Hadfield has been commander of the International Space Station for the past five months. But he's also a musician.
You might remember him from earlier this year, when he recorded a duet with Ed Robertson of the Barenaked Ladies. And back in December, he released the first original song recorded in space.
Well, today he's finally heading back to Earth. But first he made one more video, and it might be his best. It's a cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity" . . . with some of the lyrics changed, so it's not all about being STRANDED in space.
And he posted a cool music video for it that he shot entirely on the Space Station.
Did you forget to set your alarm this morning, or maybe you slept right through it because of your Mother's Day hangover? Don't worry . . . I've got your back.
Because I care, here are your Top Excuses for Being Late to Work this Morning.
Your car wouldn't start. Technically, the alcohol-detection device wouldn't let you start it. But, whatever.
You were out all night, getting loaded with Lindsay Lohan and her sponsor.
You did your best to get traffic moving by honking relentlessly, but amazingly, it didn't work.
You lost your car keys . . . in a fishbowl at a swingers' party.
It was a long, emotional night in the "Game of Thrones" chat room.
Back in February, someone started a dumb trend on YouTube called "gallon smashing", where you walk through a grocery store carrying two gallons of milk, throw them on the ground, and pretend to slip on them.
A few teenagers actually got arrested for doing it. But they got off easy compared to THIS guy.
There's video of some Einstein doing it, and when he pretends to slip . . . he smashes his face on the floor, gets up, and says he broke his jaw.
