Rolling Stone

One leading scholar told Matt Taibbi — author of this issue’s cover story, “The Worst Congress Ever” — that the 109th Congress is so bad, “It makes you wonder if democracy is a failed experiment.”


 

 

"The Terri Shiavo case was the last straw for me. I mean, I thought that that was the abandonment of basic Republican principles dealing with decisions made at the local level, and certainly not expanding the jurisdiction of federal courts in order to appeal to a particular religious group that wanted to keep her hooked up. And I think a lot of people thought that was kind of scary." — John Danforth

 

 


Republican Shenanigans

 


 

Foley's Staffers

 

One minute you're a congressional aide with a corridor reputation as a rising star. Then, in the space of hours, you're locked out, at least temporarily, of the opportunities you worked long hours for little pay to earn.

That's what is happening to the 16 men and women working in Republican Mark Foley's offices in Washington and in Florida's 16th District.
 

 


 

"According to Kim Jong-Il's biography, they say he has been constantly accused of dishonesty, drunkenness and sexual excess. So if he lived here, he could be in Congress." --Jay Leno

"If 9/11 changed everything, how come baseball players are still allowed to fly airplanes around Manhattan? I'm sure you've heard about this story. A Yankees pitcher flew an airplane into a fifty-story building on the East side. At first no one knew whether it was an accident or a terrorist attack, so Bush had no idea how long to sit there and do nothing." --Bill Maher

Odd News

 


 

 

Peter Michaud, a public information officer for the Gemini Observatory in Hawaii, took this picture in November 2003 of an unusual cloud formation above the islands. It is called a lenticular cloud, due to its lens-shaped appearance. These clouds are formed by so-called "mountain waves" of air created by strong winds forced over high mountains.
