May 10: Mark Your Calendars
A federal judge has ordered the Secret Service to
release all records of disgraced GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff's visits to the
White House - which could prove an embarrassment for President Bush.
The logs are expected to show who Abramoff met with at the White House as well as when and how long he was there.
Bush has said he didn't know Abramoff, who
pleaded guilty in a massive influence-peddling scandal. But photos show
the two posing for pictures at the White House...
"President Bush introduced former Fox broadcaster Tony Snow as the new White House Press Secretary. See, this is the perfect example of wasteful government spending. I mean, why is the president paying someone to join his staff and tow the party line when he was doing it on Fox for free?" --Jay Leno

"I stand by this man because he stands for things. Not only for things, he stands on things. Things like aircraft carriers, and rubble, and recently flooded city squares. And that sends a strong message that no matter what happens to America she will always rebound with the most powerfully staged photo-ops in the world." --Comedian Stephen Colbert, roasting Bush at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner
Valerie Plame Covertly Speaks
Valerie Plame and husband Joseph Wilson were in the crowd spilling out of the ABC News party (they are guests of the network at the dinner). Plame was pleasant, but asked by E&P why she came tonight she said,“I’m sorry,” adding in mock-red carpet lingo, “I’m wearing Armani.”

"Karl Rove, making his fifth grand jury appearance, his fifth grand jury appearance! One more and he gets to bang the gavel."--Jon Stewart
Great site except for one thing...no criticism of Democrats. Both parties are as corrupt as can be and only exist because of an ignorant populace. The destruction of our nation will continue unabated no matter who is in control. We would not be in Iraq without both parties voting to be there, and then voting to pay for the monstrous events. I could just as easily go to a pro-Republican site and say the same thing. This nation is finished because of the self serving bastards in congress and the white house.
I criticize the Democrats,
but the Republicans have cornered the market on political comedy!
Bush Breaks 750 Laws, Congress Yawns
President Bush has quietly claimed the authority to disobey more than 750 laws enacted since he took office, asserting that he has the power to set aside any statute passed by Congress when it conflicts with his interpretation of the Constitution.
"But when you look at the list of liberals who are active in politics, if
not running. Barbra Streisand, Sean Penn, Warren Beatty, Springsteen,
Spielberg...And then you look at the conservatives, it's like Chuck
Norris, Bo Derek and the Gatlin Brothers. I don't know if being liberal
makes you more right, but it does seem like it makes you more talented."
– Bill Maher
