Cheney Misfires -- Big Time!
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A fellow named Whittington, Harry,
In the future will likely be wary
Of hunting with Dick who
Mistook him for quail stew.
The VEEP with a shotgun's quite scary.

Madeline Begun Kane also has a new poem and a limerick about Congress's halfhearted efforts to reclaim some of its power here:

AHNC 2003 Flashback:  Cheney Goes Hunting



Deadeye Dickster

By Hubert Wilson


Better not cross the Dick$ter!
Aimin' fer ya mister!
No releasin' Cheney and Abramoff pitchers!
Gunnin' fer ya with his double-barrel strictures?

Be quiet 'bout that undisclosed location!
Absolutely no questions 'bout Halliburton corporation!
Nary a word 'bout his weapons of mass destruction!
Goin' to make ya a lead introduction?

Hell bent fer quail!
Except the Dick$ter's eyesight has begun to fail?

South Texas attorney
Harry almost went on his last journey!
Obviously the Dick$ter was a little nervous!
Tried too hard to do a Texas public service?

He ain't no Brokeback Mountain cowboy!
If'n ya annoy -
Make ready fer yer own funeral to soon enjoy?

Doin' those fancy trick shots
Only gives his'n huntin' buddies stomach knots!
Will the Dick$ter think its a personal slight?
Now he's the lead story on the Smoking Gun website?



"It's time for me to give out an award to newly elected Majority Leader John Boehner. Mr. Boehner was elected just a few days ago to reform House Republicans, who are feeling the heat from lobbyist scandals. Well, CNN found out that he rents his two-bedroom apartment from a lobbyist who had clients who had interests in legislation that Boehner sponsored. And for that, Mr. Boehner, you've just won a pair of Stephen Colbert's big brass balls." --Stephen Colbert

America the Beautiful Tortured


A draft U.N. report on the detainees at Guantanamo Bay concludes that the U.S. treatment of them violates their right to physical and mental health, and, in some cases, constitutes torture.

It also urges the United States to close the military prison in Cuba and bring the captives to trial on U.S. territory,
charging that Washington's justification for the continued detention is a distortion of international law.
