CNN Political Ticker (blog) - 12-22-09

FYI: ABC Outs CIA

 

The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) ran a secret prison in Lithuania where al Qaeda suspects may have been held, a parliamentary probe in the Baltic state found on Tuesday.

The head of Lithuania's domestic intelligence agency has already resigned as speculation about secret jails has intensified.

U.S. broadcaster ABC News reported in August that Lithuania was the third European country, after Poland and Romania, believed to host secret CIA jails

GOP Debates Healthcare With Bird Calling

 

One of the Senate's most soft-spoken members, Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), unleashed a little pent-up frustration on Monday, telling reporters that RNC Chairman Michael Steele was redefining the term obnoxious with his latest histrionics.

On Monday morning, Steele held a conference call with reporters in which he called Democratic Senators crafting health care reform "cowards" who are "flipping the bird" to the American public.

 


 

 


 

"Hey, this is interesting. After somebody threw a tomato at Sarah Palin during a book signing at the Mall of America, she went to another signing at a Costco in Utah, where they took all the tomatoes off the shelves. So instead she got hit by a three pound bag of frozen spinach ravioli." –Jimmy Kimmel

To Obstruct Health Bill’s Xmas Deadline, GOP Plans to Kidnap Santa Claus

By Don Davis

 


 

"And listen to this. After one single senator, just one senator — Joe Lieberman of Connecticut — was able to block passage of the Medicare buy-in provision of that health care bill, some people are calling for the Senate to begin experimenting with a whole new way of doing business. Yeah, it's called majority rules. They're thinking of trying it to see how it works." –Jay Leno
 



 

"Oh, and listen to this. It happened yet again last month. A Georgia couple showed up a day early for a tour at the White House — you know, just regular folks. Showed up to tour the White House, somehow wound up in an invitation-only breakfast with President Obama and the First Lady. Isn't that amazing? The only two people that couldn't get in the White House this year were John McCain and Sarah Palin." –Jay Leno
 


Rock-The-Voter News


 

"On Fox News yesterday, White House Senior Adviser David Axelrod said that President Obama hasn't 'given up on achieving something valuable in Copenhagen.' Wow, in one year we've gone from 'Yes we can!' to 'We haven't totally given up.'" –Jimmy Fallon

Subject: Goodbye 2009

 

Lisa,

Thank you for getting me through another year of "political turmoil".

Speaking of turmoil you sure had your share this year. Your son survives a 15 story fall and  you're diagnosed with the Big C. I bet you want to say goodbye to 2009 too! How is your son?

Thank you.

Janet

 

Thank you for writing, Janet.

 

When I found out I had cancer it was about a month after my son survived that fall.  I took the news as so secondary in my life to the fact that my son lived. And maybe that was a good thing. A psychological redirection.

 

My son is doing fine and is back in China teaching English to IT students.

 

And yes, Janet, I want to say goodbye to 2009 but I don't have a date for New Year's Eve! lol

To Help You Deflate Photo

 

 

A ceramic figurine called 'caganer' of Britain's Queen Elizabeth, is seen on show at the Santa Llucia Fair on December 21, in Barcelona. Statuettes of well-known people defecating are a strong Christmas tradition in Catalonia, dating back to the 18th century. Catalonians hide caganers in Christmas Nativity scenes and invite friends to find them.

Peace.
