Condi thinks Bush has an inquisitive mind? No wonder we are in such a mess. Is there such a thing as a Tri-impeachment?

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again, goes the saying. To which could be added: try elsewhere. That's the approach human rights activists who want to prosecute former US Secretary of State Donald Rumsfeld for war crimes are taking. They are now planning to file a lawsuit against the former US defense secretary in Spain after a lawsuit against him failed in Germany.

CIA former director George Tenet insisted Sunday he never told the White House it was a slam dunk that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. He says his slam-dunk remark only referred to his ability to move the facts around to convince the public that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. We're starting to understand just why the Bush family crest is two crossed swords over a tangled web.- Argus Hamilton

"President Bush visited a school in New York City. Before his visit, the city filled in all the potholes near the school. Not only that, before the president's visit, the school hid all the sharp objects and covered the electric sockets with plastic protectors." --Conan O'Brien
Dear Lisa ,
Today I looked at your site - as I do almost everyday - and was
really hit hard by the photo of Professor Hawking being loaded into a jet to experience 0-grav. His explanation of 'what's all this??" in
A Brief History Of Time astonished me. I'll admit I had to read it three times , and pencil-marked a number of things that a coworker who had majored in physics as an undergrad had to explain to me.
I felt that I was incalculably more wealthy after reaching enough understanding of our universe to feel a contentment with my efforts. This could not have happened without Dr, Hawking - and I was moved to tears by the image of him going into a life-threatening situation - for the pure joy of Greater Understanding.
Thank you for printing an image that illustrates so much of what is best in Humanity.
You are very welcome. The world is a better place with Dr. Hawking.
Thank you for writing.
28% of America Use BUSH ON
President George W. Bush's
job performance is currently viewed positively by only 28% of U.S. adults,
according to the latest Harris Poll of 1,001 U.S. adults surveyed by phone
between April 20 and 23, 2007 by Harris Interactive.
That approval rating is the lowest recorded since President Bush took office.

NYT Says No to WHCA?
Tucked inside Frank Rich's Sunday column in the New York Times is indication that the newspaper will no longer play ball with the annual White House Correspondents Association dinners in Washington...Rich mixed this criticism of the press in with regret over the death of David Halberstam this week, who Rich said it would be hard to imagine "yukking it up with Alberto Gonzales, Paul Wolfowitz and two discarded 'American Idol' contestants" at the dinner.

"More bad news for Snoop Dogg; he has been banned from Australia. He tried to get in there to co-host the MTV Australian Music Video Awards, but the Immigration Minister wouldn't let him in because of his criminal record. To me, this is really unfair. We let Crocodile Dundee run around here with a four-foot-long machete. Snoop Dogg has now been banned from entering Australia, England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Oh, well -- there's always Jamaica." - Jimmy Kimmel
