Bush Still Ignoring Katrina Victims


A spending bill containing nearly $9 billion for Mississippi and Louisiana to recover from Hurricane Katrina has run into White House opposition because of its price tag.






Larry Craig BobbleHead or BobbleFoot?


The St. Paul Saints, long known for offbeat, sometimes edgy, promotions, have come up with a real doozy for this Sunday's game. ..The keepsakes consist of a miniature bathroom stall with a couple of lower legs and feet. One of the feet is springloaded and "taps," which, the Saints' press release says, is in honor of National Tap Dance Day....That's a none-too-subtle reference to Idaho Republican Sen. Larry Craig, who pleaded guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct after an undercover police officer arrested him for allegedly soliciting sex in a bathroom stall at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Subject: Hillary should give up


Hi Lisa,


I am so tired hearing Hillary Clinton should quit. I'm one of those 17 million people who voted for her.


I am "thankful" to Obama for letting me know that:

I'll vote for Obama if Hillary is VP. Otherwise I won't vote for a party that threw the Clintons under the bus in order to get Obama elected.



Gun owner in the Adirondacks



If the GOP had as successful a presidency as the Clintons (remember, two for the price of one), they'd already be on Mt Rushmore and every new school, highway and bridge would be named after them.


Gee, I started this website in 2000 because I wanted my Florida vote to be counted. And eight years later the Florida and Michigan votes aren't being counted this time because of the Democratic party. What irony.


I'll still vote though, as futile as it may seem.


Hillary is still standing strong. The Republicans couldn't destroy her and hopefully neither can the Obama Democrats. Obama needs Hillary to beat McCain.


The media is now reporting "Parsing Words" News.

"Hillary Clinton is expected to win in Kentucky. Barack Obama is expected to win in Oregon. And John McCain is expected to win at bingo. So everybody wins." --Conan O'Brien



I'm Not A Member of an ORGANIZED Party, I'm A Democrat!


Democrats are picking up the pieces after an embarrassing technical gaffe that delayed a triumphant rejection of President Bush's veto of a massive farm bill...The Senate then was expected to follow suit quickly, but action stalled after the discovery that a 34-page section of the bill had been omitted from the printed bill sent to the White House. That means Bush vetoed a different bill from the one Congress passed, raising questions that the eventual law would be unconstitutional.

"Hillary Clinton campaigned extensively in Bowling Green, Kentucky, over the weekend. Barack Obama did not campaign in Bowling Green. He doesn't do well in any place with the word 'bowling' in it. Anywhere with 'bowling,' he is out of there." --Jay Leno
