The Secrets of September 11

The White House is battling to keep a report on the terror attacks secret. Does the 2004 election have anything to do with it?

- Even as White House political aides plot a 2004 campaign plan designed to capitalize on the emotions and issues raised by the September 11 terror attacks, administration officials are waging a behind-the-scenes battle to restrict public disclosure of key events relating to the attacks.

AS A CERTIFIED flap watcher, I will look back on the Rick Santorum controversy as the cormorant of its species. It took an enormous amount of energy to achieve a modest liftoff, and then it flopped unceremoniously back into the political ocean.

Diplomacy: North Korean Style




We must remember that the Statue of Liberty is a French woman.  I wonder if W. thinks she is a whore? 

Good question. The right wing "patriots" are calling anti-war women sluts on the radio waves. At the very least, the Statue of Liberty isn't a whore for oil.

A young D.C. attorney found himself stuck in traffic on the beltway one afternoon. Nothing was moving, it was a total gridlock situation. He's scanning the radio stations trying to get a traffic report when another driver knocks on his window. He rolls it down and immediately asks the stranger if he knows what the hold-up's all about.

"Sir, apparently the president's motorcade was carjacked by terrorists and the police have shut down the freeway in both directions. The terrorists are demanding five million dollars within the hour or they're going to douse the president in gasoline and set him on fire. So, uh, would you like to contribute?"

Grumbling, but frustrated by the situation, the attorney asks, "Um, sure I guess. About how much is everyone else giving?"

"Five gallons."

"President Bush said that he is worried that Iraq could be overrun by religious fundamentalists. Hey, if it's good enough for the Republican Party, it's good enough for Iraq." óJay Leno

"On Thursday, President Bush will declare that the war with Iraq is over, so now he can concentrate on squandering his high approval rating." óDavid Letterman
