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.

Alaska Hates Polar Bears!
The state of Alaska will sue the U.S. government
to stop the listing of the polar bear as a threatened species, arguing the
designation will slow development in the state, Gov. Sarah Palin (R) said on
quite a weekend, politically. An estimated 75,000 people attended a Barack Obama
rally on the banks of the the Willamette River. ... And if you believe the
media, listen to this. After the rally, Barack Obama fed them all with just five
loaves of bread and two fish. Amazing!" --Jay Leno
Subject: Hillary should give up
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:
the job of First Lady is so unimportant
the Clintons are racists! How well they hid that all these years!
that Hillary is "Annie Oakley" waving her "six guns"
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.

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.
Here's a phototoon I did a few days ago
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."
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.
