"President Bush announced the rebate checks for at least $600. ... I'm going to use my check to buy enough gas to drive to the bank and cash it. And then maybe back. The rebates were pushed through by the president to help get the economy going. It's kind of like when the mom of the kid nobody likes bakes everyone cupcakes so you can pretend to like him until the cupcakes are gone, and then you go back to giving him wedgies." --Jimmy Kimmel

"And Barack Obama is suffering from a bad headache today. His former pastor, Reverend Wright, is back out there. Reverend Wright gave an interview earlier tonight on PBS with Bill Moyers, and he said he's gotten over a million emails and phone calls telling him to keep on speaking out, and every one of them came from Hillary Clinton. It was amazing." --Jay Leno

Separation of church and state was created for a very good reason. Since your country brought religion in the political arena in the 90s through your Republican party, your country has begun a long slow decline in science and the education of your children. Europeans see your clear decline in the sciences. We don't teach "creationism" in our public schools. We teach our children facts. Religion has dumbed down your country. Just look at your "Christian" leader Bush who has to be the dumbest president I have witnessed in my short life, I'm 38. My God, you people are even afraid of stem cell research or even learning a second language. Here in Belgium, most people are fluent in several languages due to our diverse background and history and we embrace it.
Lisa, you are a bright light in the US and you give me much hope for your country. Keep up the good work. I have sent a nice donation through PayPal.
Thank you, Astrid. Deep curtsy.
I agree with all you said. I do believe this political intrusion by the religious right began in the 50s, when they added "under God" to our pledge of allegiance and most televangelists became the "moneychangers" of 20th century Christianity.

"Tomorrow I go to Washington D.C. to perform at the White House Correspondents Dinner. It's thrown by the press corps for the president and his staff. Everyone who works for the president will be there. Dick Cheney will be there; Condoleezza Rice will be there; Fox News will be there." --Craig Ferguson

"Well, experts say the big test for Barack Obama will be surviving the negative attacks. The big test for Hillary Clinton, of course, is surviving North Carolina. The big test for John McCain is just surviving until November." --Jay Leno
Revenge Shall Be Mine Saith The Lord
The Rev. Jeremiah Wright
went to Washington on Monday not to praise Barack Obama, but to bury him.
Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. Smiling, cracking corny jokes, mugging it up for the big-time news media ó this reverend is never going away. Heís found himself a national platform, and heís loving it.
Itís a twofer. Feeling dissed by Senator Obama, Mr. Wright gets revenge on his former follower while bathed in a spotlight brighter than any he could ever have imagined. Heís living a narcissistís dream. At long last, his 15 minutes have arrived.
daughter, you know, is getting married, Jenna Bush. She was on Larry King
talking about it. Kind of a big brouhaha with the Republicans going on here,
because she said she wasn't sure that she was going to support McCain. She said
she's 'open to learning' about the other candidates.' Because they haven't been
on TV a lot. But come on, this is kind of a treason in the Bush family. Not
supporting a Democrat -- being open to learning. That's outrageous." --Bill

Subject: Obama's pastor
I like Obama but I find his pastor crazy. And the media covering his pastor and his inflammatory words 24/7 is bringing Obama down in the polls. Why Obama is not fighting back tooth and nail bothers me a lot. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest. I used to go the www.democraticunderground.com every day but have stopped because the hatred there scares me. What is going on?
Thank you so much for your very sane and very funny website.
If Barack Obama cannot handle a crisis situation caused by his own pastor then how can he handle Vladimir Putin if he becomes president? That's a question this inquiring mind wants to know.
Thanks for writing Jenny and I agree with you about www.democraticunderground.com . When Obama Democrats started quoting "The Clinton Chronicles" at that website I knew some in my party had lost their sanity.
Politics is a dirty business and Obama doesn't want to get his hands dirty. He should have hit back hard at Jeremiah Wright and the longer he delays in doing so he will continue to drop in the polls. Americans want their president to be a fighter and Obama isn't fighting back.
Stayed tuned Jenny, it's a long way till November and a lot can happen!
Michelle Obama Said This In 2004
Asked what political wife she admires, she cites Hillary Rodham Clinton. "She is smart and gracious and everything she appears to be in public-someone who's managed to raise what appears to be a solid, grounded child."
"Hillary Clinton talking tough. Talking tough. She said if Israel is ever attacked by Iran, she would obliterate Iran. Although, she does admire the Iranians for stoning adulterers." --Jay Leno
"You folks excited about the big presidential campaign, the big shoot-out with the Democrats? Hillary Clinton-Barack Obama. Here's a big endorsement. Barack Obama has been endorsed by Bruce Springsteen. Yup. I'm not done. Earlier today, John McCain was endorsed by Yanni." --David Letterman

President Bush was busy. President Bush signed a proclamation declaring this
Malaria Awareness Week. There was an awkward moment when, during the ceremony,
Bush said, 'This is a great day for all Malarians.'" --Conan O'Brien

Needless to say the photos of that idyllic harbor scene are great. They have been circulating on the Internet for quite a few years, by the way. However, the last photo, meant to be the culmination of the whole drama, is a fake.
Look at it very carefully. I have a version in much higher resolution, which makes close examination easier. It obviously is a photoshopped collage using photo #4 (note the people, the cars and the inflatable in the background!) plus the crane truck either from one of the previous photos or -- more likely -- from a photo that is not part of the series.
Nicely done but not true. I guess most people fall for it. The good thing is, it's funny anyway.
Keep up your great work! It's people like you that make me believe that America isn't a goner yet.

I'm glad I didn't state that
they were real photos! But they are entertaining and that is the point of my lil
