The Sideshow
  • If this kid doesn't grow up be an obstetrician, we'll be shocked.

    Jazmine McEnaney, 8, helped her mother, Krystle Garcia, deliver her baby brother when the little guy decided to make his big debut two weeks ahead of schedule, ABCActionNews.com reported.

    With her mom screaming in pain in the next room, Jazmine called 911 to get some coaching on how to best help deliver baby Joseph safely.

    Jazmine remained remarkably calm over the phone. At one point, the 911 operator asked Jazmine to ask her mother if she was pushing or straining.

    Jazmine relayed the (perhaps obvious) question, to which Garcia responded, "Yes! Yes!"

    Garcia told ABCActionNews.com she was in her bathroom when her water broke. "I was freaking out," she said. "I was like, I am home alone with my 8-year-old daughter. What am I going to do, you know? Even if I call somebody, they're not going to come quick enough because it happened so fast."

    Fast is right. A mere 13 minutes after the 911 call, before paramedics could arrive,

  • Stephen Colbert skewers Fox News's Monica Lewinsky conspiracy theories

    "Folks, Hillary was behind this article just as surely as she was behind the woman who threw a shoe at her last month"

    That's the thing about conspiracy theories  they always involve the people you least expect.

    Take the hubbub surrounding Monica Lewinsky's recent cover story for Vanity Fair.

    In the piece, which is the first time Lewinsky has personally addressed the late-1990s scandal involving President Bill Clinton, the former intern wrote that she "deeply" regretted the affair, the scandal has cost her numerous professional opportunities in life, and she wants nothing more than to move on.

    This wasn't a good enough excuse for coming forward to some Fox News personalities, and satirical TV host Stephen Colbert skewered would-be conspiracy theorists with his segment, "Stephen Colbert's Bats**t Serious."

    According to Fox News, Lewinsky and Hillary Clinton are in cahoots regarding the article's timing. But how could a high-profile article about the affair between the former White House intern and President Clinton possibly benefit Hillary, who may be planning a 2016 presidential run?

  • Tree falls on SUV during traffic stop, no major injuries

    'I was picking tree bark out of my hair, it was in my ears. It just kind of exploded tree crumbs everywhere'

    A relatively routine traffic stop in Centerville, Iowa, nearly ended in tragedy when a tree — for no apparent reason — keeled over and fell atop an SUV that a police officer had pulled over.

    The incident was captured by the police cruiser's dashcam. In the footage, Officer Jeremy Veach can be seen calmly issuing a ticket to a driver who had neglected to turn her headlights on.

    But then, cue nature's fury. The oak tree falls, the officer ducks, and much of the SUV is crushed.

    Veach suffered relatively minor injuries but compared the encounter to being swatted with a giant fly swatter, according to a report from KCCI.com. The driver escaped the bizarre encounter unscathed. Her car, not so much.

    And give credit to Veach. Most people would be curled up in a fetal position after being nearly hammered into the ground. Veach stays calm, limps away like he's Stallone and it's just another day at the office.

    Veach told KCCI that he did notice the cracking of wood just before the oak tree
