Money Is The International Language
The last time I met Saif Abdallah, in the winter of 2006, he was proud to have helped kill dozens, possibly hundreds of American soldiers. Then 28, he was a geeky electronics engineer who made trigger devices for roadside bombs known as IEDs — the No. 1 cause of U.S. troop casualties. I remember the relish he took in listing his clients, most of them Iraqi Sunni insurgent groups, whom he saw as fellow-patriots, trying to drive out the American occupier. He had also devised triggers for al-Qaeda. "They pay me," he said, with a shrug. "Anybody who wants to kill American soldiers, if they pay me, I work for them."
Guess who pays him now? The American taxpayer.
The Press Do Without Clinton Rumors? (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane
The press is so desp’rate for drama
In a White House that’s run by Obama,
That they eagerly tell
Bill and Hill tales pell-mell.
No Clintons? They’d run home to mama.
International maritime officials say 39 ships have been hijacked by pirates this year on the high seas. See, luckily, we don’t have pirates in America that rob and plunder. We just have CEOs.- Jay Leno
More Bush Destruction
Republican-leaning independents are most interested in seeing Sarah Palin, Mitt
Romney, and Mike Huckabee run for the party’s presidential nomination in 2012.
Those three received the highest scores among the 10 possible candidates
evaluated in a recent Gallup Panel survey...And which potential candidates would
the party faithful least like to see on the ballot? The least popular by far was
Jeb Bush — 61 percent said they would NOT want to see him run,
a pretty strong indication of how badly burned the party feels by all things
Bush. The second least popular was Newt Gingrich — 48 percent would not like
to see him run.

auto executives for the Big Three are being criticized now, because, before they
asked Congress for billions of dollars, they all flew to Washington in private
jets. Yeah, separately, in private jets. In their defense, the executives said,
“We would have driven, but our cars only get three miles to the gallon.” -
Earlier this month, a guest
took the pulpit at Open Bible Fellowship in Morrison, Ill., a 350-member church

Congress demanded a business plan from the three automakers before they'd even consider giving them taxpayer money. A business plan? How come we didn't get to see a business plan before Congress gave away 750 billion of our dollars?" --Jay Leno

"But there are some nice aspects during the transition period. For example, the Bush twins gave the Obama girls a tour of the White House. It was very sweet, but the Obama girls got really scared because they heard creepy organ music coming from Cheney's underground lair." --David Letterman
