The Pentagon did not violate
a federal prohibition on propaganda by using retired military officers to tout
the Bush administration's war policies in the media, congressional investigators
At the same time, the report by the Government Accountability Office said the use of military analysts by the administration prompted legitimate questions from members of Congress and the news media about whether defense contractors with commercial ties to the retired officers received favorable treatment in procurement decisions.

Sanford is still trying to recover from his sex scandal. This is the latest.
This weekend, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford wrote an editorial

The Sad Effects of Conservative Constipation
California Carrie Prejean, who got canned from her beauty queen job for not
showing up to her contractual obligations, is writing a book.
It will be called “Still Standing" and it's due out in November.
"Still Standing," despite, we assume, those nasty winds that exposed her breasts during that photo shoot.
Wanna bet the book is about her being the victim of a liberal media that hates beautiful conservatives like her and tried to make her look really, really dumb?

White House delays report on closing Guantánamo Christian Science Monitor
"It was that fateful day in July that we planted the Stars and Stripes in the lunar surface, officially claiming the moon as America's space Puerto Rico. It was all ours. It was the culmination of a dream. ... It took us ten years, astronauts' lives, billions of dollars, and all we did is hit a f***ing golf ball? ...

By now, we'd probably have hourly shuttles to the moon casinos that we had to give them as an apology for the terrible Earthpox epidemic of 1973." --Jon Stewart

Subject: Health care costs
I'm not really sure why there is so much controversy to paying for
health care. I have paid for public education for all of my adult life
even though I don't have kids and never gave it a second thought because
I realize the alternative: ignorance. Just my opinion, but I consider
the right to health care in the same league with education. Everybody
should have it. Not really sure why the government can mandate car
insurance but not health insurance. As I said, just my opinion.
P.S.- Hope your son is good
say it any better: Not really sure why
the government can mandate car
insurance but not health insurance.
And yes, my son is good. The excellent healthcare he is receiving in China is a small fraction of what it would have cost here.
