Americans must be aware of bubble mentality of Bush 
Yale Daily News - 11-17-03

...How does Bush know his advisers are better informed than journalists in Iraq, and how does he know what the media is saying if he never watches, listens to, or reads it? While the Democrats are having a serious and necessary debate about where they stand on foreign policy, the White House is trying desperately to keep Republicans in line, to show that dissent on Iraq is "just a Democrat thing."...

The Mirror - Nov 17 2003 -  By Bob Roberts

GEORGE Bush was last night branded chicken for scrapping his speech to Parliament because he feared being heckled by anti-war MPs.
The US president planned to give a joint address to the Commons and Lords during his state visit to Britain...Tony Blair gave a joint address to the American Senate and Congress in July.

I wonder if W will wear his flight suit and helmet when he stays at Buckingham Palace? Maybe Tony will let W land on a British aircraft carrier.

A lady bought a new Lexus. Cost a bundle. Two days later, she brought it back, complaining that the radio was not working.

"Madam," said the sales manager, "the audio system in this car is completely automatic. All you need to do is tell it what you want to listen to, and you will hear exactly that!"

She drove out, somewhat amazed and a little confused. She looked at the radio and said, "Nelson." The radio responded, "Ricky or Willie?" She was astounded. If she wanted Beethoven, that's what she got. If she wanted Nat King Cole, she got it.

She was stopped at a traffic light enjoying "On The Road Again" when the light turned green and she pulled out. Suddenly an enormous sports utility vehicle coming from the street she was crossing sped toward her, obviously not paying attention to the light.  She swerved and narrowly missed a collision.

"Idiot!" she yelled and, from the radio, "Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States."

"They say women talk too much.  If you have worked in Congress you know that the filibuster was invented by men."  ~Clare Booth Luce


"If combat means living in a ditch, females have biological problems staying in a ditch for thirty days because they get infections and they don't have upper body strength. I mean, some do, but they're relatively rare. On the other hand, men are basically little piglets, you drop them in the ditch, they roll around in it, doesn't matter, you know. These things are very real. On the other hand, if combat means being on an Aegis-class cruiser managing the computer controls for twelve ships and their rockets, a female may be again dramatically better than a male who gets very, very frustrated sitting in a chair all the time because males are biologically driven to go out and hunt giraffes."
