"More rockets were fired into Israel today. Israel responded by bombing more targets inside Lebanon. Now there's talk the U.S. might send some troops over there to help with border security. That's when you know the people over there are in trouble, when they start asking our advice on border security." --Jay Leno
"A lot of people were offended by
President Bush using a four-letter word at the G-8 Summit the other day. Were
you offended? I was more offended by the way he eats a buttered roll in front of
company." --Jay Leno
Wielding government-issued credit cards, Homeland Security employees racked up hundreds of thousands of dollars in unjustified expenses last year, including booties for rescue dogs, iPods, designer rain jackets and beer-making equipment, according to a congressional audit released Wednesday.

When I read the following on your website (on July 19th):
Just let Bar develop Alzheimer's, or the twins diabetes, and see how fast Bush changes his mind on stem cell research. -- Zing!
It reminded me that president Bush's sister Robin died of Leukemia when he was young (she was 3). Stem cell treatment is one tactic that shows potential combating it.

Subject: Dead Aide and Chandra Levy
What should be more of a story is the difference in media response to these two
tragedies. Condit was hounded, accused of murder, vilified by the right-wing
echo chamber and eventually defeated in his bid for re-election. Scarborough,
may have suffered from some indignities, but nothing on the scale of what
happened to Condit and his family.
Only one newspaper in the entire country covered the
death of Joe Scarborough's aide from start to finish. That alone speaks volumes.
Subject: Joe Scarborough
Joe was a lousy US Congressman. I'm from his old district and we still don't have a north 4 lane highway to evacuate from hurricanes that we begged him for after hurricanes Erin and Opal. We have to drive to Mobile (70 miles west I65 and almost 300 miles to the east I75) to get the closet northern super highway. Interstate 10 is slowed to a crawl trying to evacuate Pensacola.
He pumped up the military and played the good time Charlie role, then quit.
I'd hate to see what would happen if the military had to evacuate (Eglin, Hurlburt, Naval Air) NORTH via I10, in a national emergency.
Yeah, like you, Lisa, I know Scarborough country too well.
I hear ya but let's give Joe a break - he was busy doing three things at once -- pulling down Bill Clinton's pants AND in the middle of a messy divorce AND preparing his new wedding. No wonder he quit Congress after he was re-elected, he was exhausted.
The only conspiracy theory I see with this Joe guy, is that a liberal media exists.

KEN LAY'S ALIVE!
Don't check the casket. I know he's back. When I saw those lights
flickering out at La Guardia Airport yesterday and heard the eerie shrieks
and moans in the dark, broiling subway tunnels, I just knew it: Ken Lay's
alive! We can see his spirit in every flickering lightbulb from Kansas to
Queens as we head into America's annual Blackout season.

Video To Come of Bush In His Underwear?
American officials are always wary of being spied on
when they come to Russia. But on this visit, officials said they had very little
doubt that their suspicions were correct: the attic and basement of Mr. Bush’s
“cottage” were sealed off from him and his security detail.
American officials, granted anonymity in order to speak freely, joked that the rooms were filled with listening equipment.
"The situation in the Mideast is not
looking good. Yesterday Vice President Dick Cheney said when it comes to war,
Americans need to know where he stands. I don't even know where he stands with
those seven deferments. I think it's near the back." --Jay Leno
