Can This Administration Do Anything Right? Obviously No!


A new report warns says US provincial reconstruction teams (PRT), a much publicized program for rebuilding Iraq and Afghanistan, operate as ad hoc "pickup games" with no clear direction.


You know – you know that since George Bush has become president, gas has basically tripled in price. Now, Bush is an oil man. I’m not a conspiracy theorist. I’m just saying that if we had elected Colonel Sanders president—[laughter]—and the price of chicken had tripled, I’d be a little suspicious.

Disturbing News



CNN Reporter Busted In Central Park



A CNN reporter was arrested Friday in Central Park with a small amount of methamphetamine in his pocket, but he avoided jail time by agreeing to undergo drug counseling and therapy.

Richard Quest, 46, was arrested around 3:40 a.m. on a count of possession of a controlled substance — a misdemeanor that usually refers to a personal use amount of a drug. He was also charged with loitering; the park officially closes at 1 a.m.


John McCain presented his proposal. He says that over the summer, we should have a “gas tax holiday.” Ooh. For summer drivers, the 18-cent-a-gallon federal gas tax, he wants that lifted over the summer. Or as it used to be called, “Grandpa is giving you five dollars.” - Bill Maher

Airlines should just get it over with and start putting passengers in the cargo hold. Let’s face it. You’ve already taken away the leg room, the food, the pillows. The only thing left is to tag us, load us onto the conveyor belt—and let us fight over who gets to sleep on the bag of mail. - Bill Maher

Did you see what’s going on down in Texas? This is unbelievable. Those 416 kids from the Mormonist sect – whatever they are – polygamist, break-off sect – they had to go before a judge – like, every lawyer in the state was there – to decide whether the kids are going to go back to their “ranch” or into foster care. Which is so sad, because some of these kids are barely old enough to know what’s going on, and they miss their husbands. - Bill Maher
