Bush fits the role of bookie quite well.  I wonder what idea this administration will come up with next?  Terror betting slot machines at the Post Office, with stamps as the payout?  Bill Bennet must be disappointed .

"The state of Florida will help restore the voting rights to 125,000 felons. Well that makes sense, a lot of people thought the last election was stolen anyways, might as well let felons vote. Should we let criminals vote? We already let them hold office, might as well let them vote." —Jay Leno



   Checked out your site - didn't find it very humorous. It's amazing how misinformed many of you are. Maybe you should try checking out a book called "The Savage Nation" by Michael Savage. He compares the modern Democratic party to the Nazi party with striking resemblance.

"Liberalism is not a state of mind, but a mental disease which will slowly erode this country into nothingness." If you like Socialism, try Canada - I hear it's nice this time of year.

So you are quoting a homophobe racist who was recently fired, as a credible source?  No wonder you are a republican(?).

Does Motorola allow it's employees to surf political websites at work?

Thanks for writing and hopefully you will regain your sense of humor through major surgery, maybe a lobotomy?


Thanks for the festivity! It was fun to get a humorous perspective on Scabbage etc. Keep it up, I'll be back.

Dear Kelley,
We try to stop the spread of Scabbage etc. To avoid catching anything while we do our website work, we wear rubber gloves.  It's a dirty business but somebody has got to do it.

And we are here for you.

Thanks for writing and we welcome your return.



With regard to the Hot Shot story, if you surf the "news" channels you'll see that gleam from all these bims. It reminds
me of the Eagles song, 'Dirty laundry" (Not done dirt cheap by the way!):

The bubble-headed bleach blonde comes on at five she can tell you 'bout the train wreck with a gleam in her eye

I think the worst (if that's possible) was Paula Zahn during the massacre murder bombing of Bagdad. She would ask Wolf the whore,  "Ooh how big was that one?" She had orgasmic glee that her husband probably hasn't seen since the first time in the back of his Pinto!



Dear Doug,

Thanks for writing.  This problem is created by the TV media hiring people by their looks and not the quality of their resume, in my view.

Kyra Philips on CNN is the epitome of stupidity in conducting an interview.  What are the producers on CNN thinking when they allow her to make a fool of herself?  Ratings. 

Dumb blondes are always in demand.  Just look at Zelda and myself!  lol




"“You know I had a drinking problem,” Bush told a
group of clergy who met with him last September. “Right
now I should be in a bar in Texas, not the Oval Office.
There is only one reason that I am in the Oval Office
and not in a bar. I found faith! I found God!”"

..."Once I called my mother-in-law ( Barbara Bush) for help," Sharon says. "She told me, `Neilsie will talk to me. You talk to your own mother.' " ...

Bush compassionate conservatism evaporates when money is involved, don't we all know.


Lie Clock

Donald Rumsfeld died and went to heaven. As he stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him. He asked, "What are all those clocks?"

St. Peter answered, "Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on Earth has a Lie-Clock. Every time you lie the hands on your clock will move."

"Oh," said Rumsfeld, "whose clock is that?"

"That's Mother Teresa's. The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie."

"Incredible," said Rumsfeld. "And whose clock is that one?"

St. Peter responded, "That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abe told only two lies in his entire life."

"Where's Bush's clock?" asked Rumsfeld.

"Bush's clock is in Jesus' office. He's using it as a ceiling fan."

House Leader Backs Condoleezza Rice

Tuesday July 29, 2003 7:09 AM

By JOHN SOLOMON  Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) - The House intelligence committee chairman is giving Condoleezza Rice a strong endorsement in the face of Democratic criticisms, but says President Bush's national security adviser ``had a learning curve'' on terrorism because she didn't have much front-line intelligence experience.

She is the NATIONAL SECURITY advisor.... so what is she doing in that job if she has " little front line intelligence experience"????

Link and comment provided by Editerette.

Good question, Editerette.  Bush selected her, maybe that is the answer why Condi Rice a Roni was chosen?



Thanks to BH48

Morning Tom,

Thanks for the photo.  More people are expressing their disgust with Bush.  Impeachment is being discussed more and more.  There's hope yet!

Take care,






Somewhere over the rainbow is the next Democrat president.
