President Bush, opening the fall campaign season, is painting Democrats as defeatist for criticizing ...

Cindy Sheehan made the wrong choice wearing an anti-war t-shirt. Instead, she should have nailed Bush with a rotten tomato.

There’s a reason the state of the union speeches are in January, they are just like New Year’s resolutions -- you make them in January and forget them by April. -- Craig Crawford on MSNBC’s IMUS Show 2-1-06

As a matter of course, embedded journalists sign release forms that—in this (PDF) version, at least—make it very clear that the government isn't responsible for the cost of any medical care in the field: "Persons receiving government medical or dental care who are not otherwise eligible to receive such care shall be obligated to reimburse the government." (The military also offered to supply the first embedded reporters with vaccinations against smallpox and anthrax—as long as they were willing to pay for them.)

I was watching American Idol last night, and just trying to tolerate one bad act after another.

I went to the kitchen to get a sandwich, and when I came back, I just sat there staring at the TV screen and thinking, "This guy REALLY sucks!"

Then, I realized the State of the Union address had come on.




Keep up the great work!


Thanks Anthony.

President Bush recently went to a primary school in Macon, Georgia, to talk about the world. After his talk, he asked if the children had any questions. One little boy put up his hand, and the president asked him his name.


"And what is your question, Kenneth?"

"I have three questions:

1 ... Whatever happened to the weapons of mass destruction?

2 ... Why did you give a tax break to the super wealthy?

3 ... Did you steal votes to win both elections?"

Just then the bell rang for recess. President Bush informed the kiddies that they would continue after recess.

When they resumed, the President said "OK, where were we? Oh, that's right, question time. Who has a question?"

A different little boy put his hand up. Bush pointed him out and asked him his name.


"And what is your question, Larry?"

"I have five questions:

1 ...Whatever happened to the weapons of mass destruction?

2 ...Why did you give a tax break to the super wealthy?

3 ...Did you steal votes to win both elections?

4 ...Why did the recess bell go off 20 minutes early?

5 ...What happened to Kenneth?"
