Pat Tillman Update


The man chosen by Barack Obama to lead the war in Afghanistan also helped cover up the friendly-fire death of NFL player turned soldier Pat Tillman. He administered a fraudulent medal recommendation to keep the public in the dark. So why isnít anybody talking about it?


"And the Fox News White House correspondent, a man named Major Garrett, has the swine flu. President Obama has ordered Fox News quarantined for up to five years, as long as it takes!" --Jay Leno




Disturbing News


"And, of course, the Republicans still can't believe that Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize. And the Democrats can't believe that Sarah Palin wrote a book. So, it's even." --Jay Leno

Republican-Shenanigans News


"And the Department of Homeland Security announced that instead of putting illegal immigrants in jail, what they're going to do is let them stay at converted hotels. Let me explain how this works. If you're a homeless American whose house has been foreclosed on, you're desperate for shelter, here's what you do. You sneak across the boarder to Mexico, you walk back in; the government puts you up at the Sheraton. Fantastic deal." --Jay Leno

Rock-The-Voter News

Clinton Blames Bush


Clinton told CNN the Bush administration was unrealistic both in terms of the number of U.S. soldiers it committed to the conflict and in its relationship with certain Afghan political leaders.

"Some of the celebrities at the White House Latin music event included Gloria Estefan, George Lopez, Eva Longoria, and Jose Feliciano. Apparently it was much more fun than last year's party, which was just President Bush and Dora the Explorer." --Conan O'Brien

Subject: How's it going?


Lisa, I often think of you and your dilemma. What's up? Have you sold your house? I wish you the very best. You deserve it. I sent you a little something via PayPal. I noticed that donations have dropped.



Thanks for writing Ben. And thank you so much for your support. Yes, donations have dropped. Fewer editions = less donations.


I'm doing pretty good. I return to the hospital in a couple of weeks for a cat scan and to see an oncologist to find out my test results. The good news is I now covered with my medical insurance here. I'm glad Costa Rica wants me to live unlike my good ol' US of A. The bad news is I still have Hodgkin's lymphoma.


The OTHER bad news was that my house was going into foreclosure at the end of the month if $920.31 wasn't paid. The good news is a very generous AHNC viewer paid my overdue mortgage. A big hug to Joe for saving my house.


What did I ever do to receive all this good karma?




"NASA recently announced they have a photograph from the Hubble Telescope that shows two galaxies colliding. Then they took a closer look and said, 'Wait a second. Those galaxies aren't colliding. They're doing it.'" --Conan O'Brien
