Congress: US repeated 9/11 failures in Xmas plot
AP – Tue May 18, 5:17 pm ET
WASHINGTON - Despite a
top-to-bottom overhaul of the intelligence community after the
2001 terrorist attacks, security officials repeated some of
the same mistakes nearly a decade later and allowed a would-be
bomber to slip a board an airliner, congressional
investigators said Tuesday.
Voters back anti-DC, anti-establishment candidates
AP – Wed May 19, 3:09 am ET
WASHINGTON – With the electorate's
intense anger reverberating across the country, this is all but certain:
It's an anti-Washington, anti-establishment year. And candidates with ties
to either better beware.

Iraq Wants Their
Documents Back From US
national archive has asked the United States to return millions of historical
documents seized by U.S. troops in the mayhem that followed the U.S. invasion in
2003, along with its Jewish archive...Thousands of Jews once lived in Iraq but
the formation of Israel in 1948 prompted an aggressive government campaign to
displace them as Arab nationalism swept the Middle East. Iraqi sociologists
say only a few Jews remain in the country.
security forces say they have detained an al Qaeda member suspected of planning
an attack on the World Cup in South Africa next month. The man has already
admitted that terror and destruction was his ultimate gooooaaalllll! - Jimmy

Incensed About Miss USA Contest
HOGBUTT, Mississippi – When told that an American of Lebanese extraction had won
the Miss USA crown, local xenophobic native bigot Dilbert McFuktard went
apoplectic and had to be sedated.
“That’s it. I can’t take it anymore," he said. "First an African president who
wasn’t even born in this country, and now an Arab Muslim Miss USA. I’m mad as
hell and I want my country back. Everybody knows this is a white Christian
country. We took it fair and square from the pagan heathens who were here when
we got here and then shut the door behind us. To make it even worse, she’s a
Lebanese. God meant for only opposite type relationships.”
When told that “Lebanese” was not the same as “lesbian”, McFuktard said “Oh …
well, never mind about that part then, I guess.”

Sarah Palin Goes

even George Bush in this respect. Bush was sincere in his respect for the
citizen’s right to craft important opinions about the world while drinking beer
and watching baseball, and that came across in his speeches — it was a big
reason for his success.
But Bush couldn’t have spent more than ten minutes in a dirty trailer in
Arkansas before signaling for the helicopter. The guy was just too used to being
around rich people, nice houses, cigarette boats full of sheiks and oil
executives, etc. Sarah Palin on the other hand really is the kind of person who
you can picture eating egg salad off a ping-pong table. That and her utterly
genuine stupidity and meanness can take her a long way — all by themselves, I
think these things can win the White House for her —
and it seems like she senses this on an animal/reptilian level.

What Will CNN Do? Go Left or
Campbell Brown said Tuesday
that she's quitting her prime-time show on CNN primarily for one reason: Not
enough people are watching her...CNN's prime-time problems with Brown, Larry
King and Anderson Cooper have given rise to dozens of armchair program directors
who have published advice this spring. Now CNN's executives will have their
first shot at doing something new.
