Liberals are constantly wrong. In fact, that's how you rise to the top in liberalism, by being wrong. If you are wrong, and if you are consistently wrong, it's even better. You're really one of them if you're really wrong all the time.  - Rush Limbaugh babbling on OxyContin before he entered rehab

If I Were Bush's Speechwriter . . .
By Andy Rooney CBS News - 11-3-03

... probably shouldn't have said Iraq had nuclear weapons. Our guys

and the U.N. have looked under every bed in Iraq and can't find one.

In one speech, I told you Saddam Hussein tried to buy the makings of nuclear bombs

from Africa. That was a mistake and I wish I hadn't said that. I get bad

information sometimes just like you do...


President morphs into Baghdad Bob

Monday November 03, 2003
By Maureen Dowd

In the thick of the war with Iraq, President Bush used to pop out of meetings to catch the Iraqi information minister slipcovering grim reality with willful, idiotic optimism.

Re: CBS' "The Reagans" (miniseries) -

Will this show be sponsored by "Depends"? Just wondering...

I really enjoyed your website today. Please keep us informed as to
what happens to that poor woman in Mississippi.

Did you see how the Gestopo "man handled" her like a common criminal?  Treat the
suspect like crap making sure you slam her head against the roof of the car
(were 20agents really needed???), and ask questions later.




Dear ME,  Thanks for writing. Click here for the latest on the Mississippi woman,Betina Mixon.



We need to execute people like John Walker in order to physically
intimidate liberals, by making them realize that they can be killed too.
Otherwise they will turn out to be outright traitors.

The Spinning Song (to be sung to Spinning Wheel -- Blood, Sweat & Tears)

Down is up. Up is down.
Spinners wield lies that confound.
Claimin' that our troubles really prove: We win!
Spreadin' Bush baloney, Dubya smirks as he spins.

You got no money and you got no home.
Prayin' Bush throws a bone.
Talkin' 'bout your troubles, Dubya feigns concern.
Bush pals gainin' money that they surely didn't earn.

The rest of the song parody is here:

These put faces to the names of those killed. Itís something thatís being hidden from us! Please help promote this!

Love your site.
