Disturbing News


Gonzales Update

 

If the White House did nothing improper in the controversial firing of eight U.S. Attorneys last year, why would top officials in the Justice Department, perhaps including Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, have tried to conceal its role in the dismissals?

Bush & the Queen in 1991

 

In fact, Bush's real mother warned the queen about her son before their first meeting in 1991, when his father was president. At a White House luncheon for the visiting monarch, then-first lady Barbara Bush joked that she had seated her eldest son at the far end of the table and told him to keep quiet.

"Are you the black sheep of the family?" the queen asked George W. Bush, according to Barbara Bush's memoirs.

"I guess that might be true," he replied.

"Well, I guess all families have one," the queen said.
 


 

"Nation, we did it again. This past Sunday, the French people went to the polls and elected conservative, pro-American candidate Nicolas Sarkozy as their new president. ... Just how American is he? He's allowed himself to be photographed with George W. Bush, which means he's more American than many of our presidential candidates." --Stephen Colbert

Candidates for Imus' Old Spot on MSNBC

 

 

Michael Smerconish - Bald

Stephanie Miller - Beautiful

Tucker Carlson  - Bow untied

Larry Elder - Black

Joe Scarborough - Boob

 

 

My guess is that Scaborough will win the time slot because he has already named his tryout show - "Morning Joe". And in his honor I even designed a logo for him!

 

 

 

I was lucky enough to catch a few minutes of Cup of Joe this morning -- and in those few moments, he slid out the words slut, hell, Jesus and then put his feet up on his desk. Anyone taking bets he'll pull an Imus?

 

I am so looking forward to more of his intellectual discussions and his clever turn of a phrase -- Hollyweird, Dummocrats or this quote: "Today they have proven once again that the mainstream media can't print enough bad news about our troops."
