"President Obama would like the House to vote on his healthcare plan on either St. Patrick’s Day or the day after. That means Congress will be voting on healthcare either when they’re drunk, or when they’re hung over." –Jay Leno

President Obama must not bail out Greece. Besides democracy, philosophy, geometry, poetry, architecture and drama what have they ever given us? Greek President Papandreau came to Washington this week, begging for money. To which I say: Screw you, Zorba, and the horse you came hidden inside of. You want our hard earned dollars? Come back when you're an insurance company." –Bill Maher

Well, in Toyota’s defense, there are allegations that the driver of that runaway Prius in San Diego may have faked it. The guy claims he couldn’t stop a runaway Prius? Come on. Tiger Woods’s wife stopped a runaway Cadillac Escalade with a 9-iron, O.K.?- Jay Leno

And in World News, the tension between the White House and Israel is at its highest level in 30 years. Israel wants to build more houses in its territory, and the Obama administration wants them torn down. Here’s the solution: You build the houses, but let Countrywide give everybody an adjustable rate mortgage. They’ll be foreclosed on and out of there by July.- Jay Leno




Subject: Texas School Board Travesty


hey, Lisa,
hope you're feeling great. :-) been seeing on the news and your site what happened in Texas. hope this makes folks realize how important local elections are and how disastrous it can be when the crazies take over a school board. i've emailed the NEA,  and asked them to refuse to use textbooks that distort history and favor myth over facts. if enough people make their voices heard all over the country, maybe some of the damage can be mitigated. keep up the great work, pal!

Thanks for writing. I am feeling as fine as can be expected as someone with cancer and limited Internet access!


In 1992 any Halloween celebration was banned by the Christian crazies that ruled the Santa Rosa County school board where my son was a first grader. My son's school was in military rich, Bible thumping, Navarre, Florida. This area of Northwest Florida is proudly nicknamed the Redneck Riviera. "The Devil He Bad" mentality ruled the radio/TV airwaves, billboards, Jesus yard signs, and bumper stickers. Church and state unseparated. 


The following year, in 1993, those same Christian crazies gleefully elected an inexperienced at anything, non-veteran, openly anti-abortion thirtysomething to be their US Congressman. His name was Joe Scarborough.


Until this country has standardized education we are going to keep producing more and more morons.






Oh, when my son was a sixth grader in Navarre, his DARE program teacher, a local cop, taught the class that Bill Clinton was a pothead and got high in the White House.

It seems The Journal of Neurology reports that the longer you smoke, the less likely you are to develop Parkinson’s disease. So what are they telling us? Follow me guys. Remember, a couple of months ago, doctors said drinking a glass of alcohol every day was good for your heart. Smoking prevents Parkinson’s disease. Marijuana is good for glaucoma. Sex is good for your prostate. You know, screw health care. Let’s party!- Jay Leno
