This just cracks me up. A draft dodger and a bloated, big-mouthed, drug addict, want Colin Powell, who has spent a lifetime honorably serving his country, to get out of "their" party. Priceless.

Giuliani's Son Sues Over Golf


Andrew Giuliani, the mayoral scion who sued Duke University after he was kicked off the school's varsity golf team, just had his Pings handed to him by a North Carolina magistrate. Judge Wallace Dixon recommended that the young Giuliani's suit be dismissed, and in doing so, cheekily used some classic golf-cinema references. From his written recommendation:


Subject: renaming the republican party


hi, Lisa,
heard this morning that the republicans failed to adopt a resolution renaming the Democratic Party as the democrate socialist party. one illustrious member of the disloyal opposition said that even though it didn't happen, he hoped the attention to the issue made Americans appropriately fearful or something like that. that led me to the conclusion that the republican party ought to change its name, to the republicrap terrorist party. that has a nice ring to it, don'tcha think? :-) keep up the great work, pal. :-)

republicrap terrorist party -- roflol --that says it all, doesn't it?



"Nation, you know I miss the Bush administration. At least with those guys, you knew where you stood, which was occasionally on a box while holding electrodes. That's why I was glad to see former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld ... featured in the latest issue of GQ. Apparently, they gave George Clooney the month off. The story is that during the Iraq war, Rumsfeld's briefings to President Bush had cover pages featuring war photography and passages from the Bible. Because obviously, briefings about a war you just launched are a snooze unless you add a little pizzazz. So they added quotes like this one from Isaiah, 'Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?' Of course, the answer was, 'The same soldiers, over and over again.' Then there's this one from Ephesians, 'Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground.' See, Rumsfeld knew the troops already had the full armor of God, so they didn't need the full armor of actual armor. These cover pages should surprise no one. Bush and Rumsfeld are men of faith. In fact, they considered changing the Pentagon into the Jesus fish [on screen: a photo of a 'building' shaped like the Jesus fish]." --Stephen Colbert

Another Crazy Republican


South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford said he wasted no time filing a federal lawsuit to trump legislators Wednesday after they overrode a veto and required him to seek $700 million in federal stimulus cash. He said the vote to force him to seek the cash was unconstitutional and that he would fight it in court.


Joe Biden accidentally revealed the location of the Vice President’s top secret bunker. The guy can’t help it. But he did apologize. He said, “I am so sorry for the mistake. The launch code is 85334. It will never happen again. It will never happen again. My Gmail password is robot23. What am I doing? The house key is under the plant near the doorstep.”- Jimmy Fallon

Ode To Tropical Breeze Colonoscopies

By Madeleine Begun Kane


It wasn’t bad enough that Sen. Jeff Sessions cited “tropical breezes” in extolling the glories of Gitmo. Now we have Sen. Jim Inhofe bragging about Gitmo’s health care — colonoscopies for inmates over fifty-five. Whoopee!

If I were British, I’d probably write this song parody:

Gitmo Prison, here I come.
Need a doc to check my bum.

But instead, I’ll have to settle for a limerick:

Ode To Tropical Breeze Colonoscopies
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I’m moving to Gitmo real soon
Cuz I’m told inmate health care’s a boon.
Colonoscopies free
After fifty-five. Whee!
So please lock me up, Sen. Buffoon!
