President Clinton is on the verge of becoming the Rodney Dangerfield of national politics. He gets no respect. You expect that from his Republican adversaries, but yesterday his party's leader in the House of Representatives "dissed" him by upstaging his presidential tax cut.The president had let it be known Monday that he would make a bold bid for political respect by announcing on Thursday night his plans for that middle class tax cut he had promised as...

You'd never guess it from his humble rowhouse bakery, where he fires up the oven each day at 2 a.m. Or from his little stall in Cross Street market, where, after a few hours' sleep, he peddles pastries until after dinnertime. But Carminantonio Iannaccone invented tiramisu. At least he says he did, back in Treviso, Italy, in the late 1960s. No less an expert than David Rosengarten, a food writer and Food Network personality, says it just might be true.

Hey Arnold! The Movie is the Rodney Dangerfield of the current cartoon scene. It's certainly not in the same league as Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, which has visual elegance going for it, not to mention a primal narrative power. And, no, it's not nearly as good as Lilo & Stitch, a frenetic, eclectic, blue-hued hoot. But if Hey Arnold! gets "no respect," it's not half-bad either. As every 6-year-old knows, the film is based on the Nickelodeon series about Arnold, a "football-headed" kid. As the movie opens, Arnold's pleasant little neighborhood is in danger of being leveled by the fiendishly oily Scheck and his heartless Future Tech Industries.

Rodney Dangerfield, who earned the respect of comedians and audiences everywhere by insisting he never got any, died yesterday of complications after undergoing heart surgery at a Los Angeles hospital. The 82-year-old comedian, whose bulging eyes, rapid-fire delivery and always-too-tight shirt collar proved comic gold for nearly four decades, had been operated on at UCLA Medical Center Aug. 25 to have a heart valve replaced. He lapsed into a coma after the operation, suffering a small stroke and developing infectious and abdominal complications, publicist Kevin Susaki said.

NEW YORK - There are some sights no human being should ever be subjected to: Head for the hills. Pack your stuff. Board up the windows. Rodney Dangerfield is naked. What's more, Rodney Dangerfield is always naked. In bed. In front of the TV. Eating a sandwich. Thinking up a joke. Digging through a drawer in search of a bag of marijuana and his lighter. Unless he's planning to hit the town, Dangerfield's wardrobe is - simply - a robe, wide open. "Comfort," he says. "I'm all about comfort."

You can tell it's Easter in Brooklyn Park when a Rodney Dangerfield impersonator is on stage telling bad jokes about his doctor and Krazy Glue. Or when grown men dressed as Batman, Superman and Spider-Man are on a balcony dancing to rap music and Jimmy Buffett tunes. Hundreds of people turned out yesterday for the annual Easter celebration at the Club 4100 restaurant in Brooklyn Park, just as they have for the last 42 years. Most years, Baltimore Colts legend Johnny Unitas shows up and throws a few footballs, but he didn't make it this year because he was out of town, organizers say. But this Easter party is not about Johnny or Rodney, loyalists say, though the two have become fixtures over the years.

The fruitcake-eating public has been roused. For several years we were passive. We let those lame jokes about fruitcakes bounce off us like maraschino cherries. The jokes about how there is only one fruitcake that gets passed around the world, or how slices of fruitcake can be used to soak up oil on the garage floor, or how fruitcake bits make a good doorstop or gopher bait.We are not going to take it any more. We eat fruitcake and are proud of it. In response to my recent call to form an anti-fruitcake-defamation club, Friends of Fruitcake (FOF)

Allergies are like Rodney Dangerfield -- they don't get any respect. A heart attack gets everyone's attention. A bad back gets sympathy. Even a toothache may get you time off from work. But if you complain about allergies, most folks are unimpressed.Nancy was so congested she could barely breathe through her nose. Her eyes were swollen, itching and watering. When the sneezing started it could take half an hour before she recovered. Her boss was only interested in whether her sneezes were catching.

ORKNEY SPRINGS, Va. -- My experience coaching basketball earlier this year has led me into some musings about the place of respect in "the well-ordered soul." These are portentous matters to have grown out of working with a bunch of 11-year-olds about putting a round ball through a netted hoop. But I hadn't been with a group of sixth-graders since I was one myself, and I was struck by a major change that's occurred since then. To wit: I arrived at the first practice with some prepared remarks to launch our season.

It has been nearly 30 years since "pingpong diplomacy" helped forge a new relationship between the United States and China, but the sport of table tennis remains relegated to the basement of America's sporting consciousness.That may be a source of frustration for players and coaches who have tried to elevate the game's stature in the United States, but they keep plugging, hoping Americans eventually will start taking pingpong more seriously.The 1999 North American Teams Open Table Tennis Championships, which open today and run through the weekend at the Baltimore Convention Center, could be a step in that direction.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Dave Johnson has made a career out of being overlooked and underappreciated, but his search for respect has come to an end.He didn't find it. He just stopped looking for it.There will always be someone to walk away from home plate sniggering at his so-so fastball. There will always be an opposing manager to claim that Dave Johnson only pitched well enough to win because the other team only hit well enough to lose. There will always be an excuse, because he just looks so beatable.
