"And former White House press spokesman Scott McClellan has written a book highly critical of the Bush administration. And while in Utah, President Bush told an audience he has not read McClellan's book. He doesn't plan to read it. It's nothing to do with McClellan, just general principle. It's a book. It's got big words, and not a lot of pictures." --Jay Leno

Way Back When
In 1801, the United States
had a new president, Thomas Jefferson. It also had a new party in power: his
Democratic-Republican Party. Though supporters of Jefferson were called
Republicans, that party led to the modern Democratic Party.
On taking office, Jefferson spoke of the bitter struggle between his party and the Federalist Party of Alexander Hamilton. The United States now had a two-party system. Jefferson held out the hand of peace and friendship to the Federalists. He said: "We are all Republicans. We are all Federalists. Let us unite with hearts and minds. Let us have peace and love in our relations with each other."

apologize for the joke he made about West Virginia. Nothing yet on the Iraqi
war." --David Letterman

To my loyal viewers
AHNC is about to change, significantly, unless you can help.
Due to the low response to my last fundraiser, I may soon be forced to reduce the number of AHNC editions to two or three times a week instead of five. I will continue as long as your financial support continues.
Obamanomics hit AHNC hard. Once I announced my tepid preference for Sen. Hillary Clinton, the hate mail greatly increased and donations greatly decreased. Oddly, my amount of visitors has also greatly increased during this same time, which disproves the claim, "the more hits your website receives the more money you make."
Like most Democrats, I have to work hard for a living so I can continue to put food on my family.
Thank you so much and fingers crossed.
Love and peace,
