"President Bush demanded that Kerry apologize. Can you imagine that -- Bush demanding an apology for someone stumbling over his words? ... Kerry should have tried the Bush strategy: say so many stupid things, no one cares anymore." --Jay Leno

Exposing corruption in Iraq
earns pink slip
Insert in a bill by GOP lawmakers shutters an office that embarrassed the administration...And tucked away in a huge military authorization bill that President Bush signed two weeks ago is what some of Bowen's supporters believe is his reward for repeatedly embarrassing the administration: a pink slip, in the form of an obscure provision terminating the federal oversight agency that he heads, the Office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction.

It's Official - The World Hates Bush
The United States is seen as a threat to world peace by its closest neighbors and allies, with Britons saying President George W. Bush poses a greater danger than North Korea's Kim Jong-il, a survey found on Friday.
...A majority of Canadians
and Mexicans agreed, with 62 percent of those polled in Canada and 57 percent in
Mexico saying their neighbor's policy had made the world more dangerous.
As for Israel, just 25 percent of people asked said Bush had made the world safer...
Please don't try to play Twister with John Kerry's commentary. It is a game that neither our troops nor our nation can afford.- Zing!
Subject: Democrats and War
Just a thought. Bush has been saying that the Democrats they cannot win the war on terror. Correct me if I'm wrong. During WW1 after we entered the war under a Democrat and defeated the Germans in less than 18 months.In WW2 we destoryed a million plus man army and stopped the atrosities of the Nazi's, plus we destroyed another million plus man army totally hell bent on our demise in the pacific. This we did in four years under another Democrat. Bush cannot beat a non army in 5 years!
Shhhhhh, you may be shipped to GITMO for saying things like that!
Ozone Is Greek to Bush
The Bush administration is
seeking world permission to produce thousand of tons of a pesticide that an
international treaty banned nearly two years ago, even though U.S. companies
already have assembled huge stockpiles of the chemical.
Methyl bromide has been used for decades by farmers to help grow plump, sweet strawberries, robust peppers and other crops, but it also depletes the Earth's protective ozone. The United States and other countries signed a 1987 treaty promising to end its use by 2005.
Cheney said on Fox News last night that in the past two weeks Republican
candidates have been picking up speed. That tends to happen when you're going
downhill really fast!-- Jay Leno
"Senator Kerry does not support our troops. If he had won the election, there wouldn't be any troops left in Iraq. President Bush, on the other hand, has given our troops an opportunity to fight without end. That's creating jobs. In fact, the president's policies helped create 104 more job openings last month. Now who's stupid, Senator?" --Stephen Colbert
Is it just me, or did other people also notice that John Kerry's remark got a much faster response than Hurricane Katrina?
Good point Anthony! Just proves what are Republican priorities.

This image provided by NASA Thursday Nov. 2, 2006 is a recent photo from the Cassini spacecraft showing the mighty planet Saturn, and if you look very closely between its wing-like rings, upper left, reveals a faint pinprick of light. That tiny dot is Earth bustling with life as we know it. The image is the second ever taken of our world from deep space. The first was captured by the Voyager spacecraft in 1990. This marvelous panoramic view was created by combining a total of 165 images taken by the Cassini wide-angle camera over nearly three hours on Sept. 15, 2006. The mosaic images were acquired as the spacecraft drifted in the darkness of Saturn's shadow for about 12 hours, allowing a multitude of unique observations of the microscopic particles that compose Saturn's faint rings.
