The President Goes Off Duty, With a Vengeance
By ELISABETH BUMILLER - NYTIMES is vacation time in the crisp mountain spring of Santa Fe, a stunning change from the flat prairie and soon-to-be oven like temperatures of Mr. Bush's ranch in Crawford, Tex.

"So what do you like — Santa Fe or Crawford better?" Mr. Bush called out to reporters on Saturday at the 18th hole.

Nobody answered.

The rude arrogance of a president inspired today's cartoon. A standing ovation to the reporter who caused Bush to show his true nature.

Sorry for all the anatomical references as of late but Bush literally  put it out there and made it irresistible.

SUBJECT: Your site

You guys rawk!
Thanks for helping keep me from becoming depressed, with this man as commander-in-chief.
Got any idea what it's like, to be a liberal in today's military???


Thanks Dave. I can only imagine that being a liberal in the military must be akin to being a Democrat in the Redneck Riviera, only worse.  Having been shouted down for years here, is why this website exists.

I feel your pain. I prescribe visual medication. -Lisa

Did you see it? It ran in today's L.A. Times. Shrub got pissed that the woman wouldn't stop asking him questions and he
aimed his golf club at her as if it were a rifle, in a very threatening manner.

What a man he is! Threatening a woman with a pretend rifle!

I love your site, keep it up,

Thanks for writing.  We must be on the same wave length. Shrub is great fodder for comedians. He just doesn't get it.
