Bush claims privilege to withhold CIA leak records
Bush is always having such a good time no matter how miserable the world is.
According to a new poll, most voters think Barack Obama has a better smile than John McCain. Apparently this is because McCain takes his smile out every night and puts it in a glass of water. - Conan O'Brien

The White House said President Bush will visit Northern California on Thursday to get a first-hand look at the wildfires that have ravaged hundreds of square miles and strained the state's firefighting resources.
Bush Terrifies T-Ball Player
At the end of
the game, Bush joined a large chipmunk named Dugout on the field to hand out
baseballs to the players. But even on the South Lawn, he found that his
popularity went only so far. A young girl named Emily from Kentucky, apparently
afraid to meet the president and the chipmunk, ran crying from the field when
Bush tried to present her with a ball.
Undeterred, Bush lingered to sign baseballs and pose for pictures. He was in no hurry: His next big event, the Major League Baseball dinner in the State Dining Room, wouldn't start for two more hours.

Subject: Valerie Plame Dissed on Morning Joe show
Hi Lisa, I just witnessed your favorite GOPer, Joe the Schmo Scarborough diss Valerie Plame--called her a "desk jockey" and inferred several times that she was a nothing in the CIA. And Mika, his cohost, was bobbing her head up and down in agreement.
Plame was a spy who was outted and all these years later, partisan hacks like Scarborough continue to spread lies about Valerie Plame. Misogyny seems to be alive and well at MSNBC as well as misinformation.
Thanks for your wonderful daily humor, it's my comfort food.
Thanks for writing. FAIR GAME by Valerie Plame is on my nightstand.
After Robert Novak outted Valerie Plame in his column, I asked a respected investigative reporter what he would have done if he was leaked that information and he said, "I would have asked, "Why are you giving me this information?'"
Not one of the journalists who sipped on the White House leaks asked that question, including Robert Novak.
I wonder how Joe the Schmo would have handled Valerie's deep undercover work overseas revolving around counter proliferation operations protecting us from WMDs? He'd stick out like an obnoxious redneck in New York City.

Fox Leak Continues To Drip

against for years, adding an ironic new twist to the controversy over his recent
remarks about Barack Obama during an off-air break in a televised
interview...Fox has not aired the clip containing the slur nor released a
transcript containing it, though someone with access --
a "weasel," by O'Reilly's description -- leaked the information.

Packers accuse Vikings of tampering by contacting Favre The Canadian Press
"Reborn babies" are disconcertingly life-like baby dolls carefully crafted in vinyl, which have become swiftly popular mainly with collectors, but also with nostalgic grandparents and grieving parents. Made and collected by an online community of enthusiasts, they are painted several times to create the mottled color of newborn skin, have mohair hair and eyelashes, and are weighted to make them feel as heavy as human babies.
know about you but I find these dolls sort of creepy.
