Why All the Secrecy?


Bob and Joan Pesta's son Chris died at Fort Bragg last year. The Army told the family he died from a previously undiagnosed heart condition made worse by the painkillers Army doctors had prescribed for a back injury..."We immediately requested to go to Fort Bragg to see our son," Bob Pesta said. "We were refused."

"I just wanted to hold his hand," Joan Pesta said. "I just wanted to say goodbye. They said we could not come and if we did, we'd be arrested."

Must see video - The Fall of John McCain



"Honestly, Wolf, you'll barely last twenty minutes out there. I don't know what part of Neverland Senator McCain is talking about when he says we can go strolling in Baghdad." - Michael Ware, CNN reporter in Baghdad -Video from Crooks and Liars


"In his new tell-all book, Republican former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said he partied too much, drank too much, and slept with too many women he wasn't married to....When DeLay was cheating and having sex with all these women, that's when he earned the nickname 'Five-second DeLay.'" --Jay Leno



Disturbing News


Will She Be Fired?


The Army's new acting surgeon general said Tuesday she is concerned about long-term morale because the military lacks money to hire enough nurses and mental health specialists to treat thousands of troops coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan.



"Effectively we've moved from an open media environment to a state-controlled media environment, which is a considerable turnaround from the direction media was heading in Afghanistan up until 2005-06," said Adrian Edwards, spokesman of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan.



"The liberal assault on our president continues, folks. Yesterday the Democrats pulled out their most underhanded weapon yet -- Republicans. ... Senator Hagel wasted no time in mavericking the president [on screen: Hagel criticizing Bush and saying the U.S. is not a monarchy]. Of course it's not a monarchy. What an outrageous thing to say. The president should confiscate Hagel's land and revoke his privilege." --Stephen Colbert





Republican Shenanigans


Ann Coulter's Head Explodes, Prognosis Good


"The White House always complains that the liberal media never shows the good news coming out of Iraq. So tonight, I'm going to set things right with my new feature 'Lewis Black's Iraq Good New Explosion.' ... Tattoos. For decades under Saddam, they were punishable by death. But now, the only tough part about it is picking out a design. Let's see, should I get 'Mom' or 'Death to America'? I'd go with 'Death to America.' You never know how your feelings for your mom might change." --Lewis Black on The Daily Show

While we're at it, let's impeach the Patriot Act. - Grant Gerver,

Rock-The-Voter News



"There's good news for Iraqi nature lovers. A newly formed conservation group called Nature Iraq has published the country's first ever bird guide. Yes! What a great place to go birding! Let's say we throw on some camouflage, grab some high-powered binoculars, and go lurk. What could go wrong? ... Still, you have to admire the optimism. Imagine a day when Iraqis will want to see something flying towards them in the air." --Lewis Black on The Daily Show


Will another presidency be tripped up by another Monica?

As suspicions about the White House role in the firings of eight U.S. attorneys last year continue to deepen, one of the people who could shed light on what happened -- Monica Goodling, the Justice Department's White House liaison -- has suddenly decided to clam up, invoking her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination...Now it looks like the 33-year-old Goodling's terrified, whining refusal to own up to what she did may end up exposing one of the weaknesses of relying on such people. When the going gets tough, they can't necessarily be trusted to either stand up to pressure -- or take the fall. Instead, they panic.

“And yesterday on MSNBC, indicted Republican Congressman Tom DeLay, who was forced to resign last year -- you might remember that. He said in his new book that he used to cheat on his wife all the time and get drunk. Says 'cause 20 years ago he was -- and this is his quote – ‘a self-centered jerk.’ But that's all changed now. Now he's just a disgraced politician.”- Jay Leno

Al Gore, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush go to heaven, and God addresses Al first. ''Al, what do you believe in?''

Al replies: "Well, I believe that I won that election, but that it was your will that I did not serve. And I've come to understand that now.''

God thinks for a second and says: "Very good. Come and sit at my left.''

God then addresses Bill. "Bill, what do you believe in?''

Bill Replies: "I believe in forgiveness. I've sinned, but I've never held a grudge against my fellow man, and I hope no grudges are held against me.''

God thinks for a second and says: "You are forgiven, my son. Come and sit at my right.''

Then God addresses George.

"George, what do you believe in?''

He replies: "I believe you're in my chair."
