Don't fret about Sen.Ted Stevens' indictment, like most setbacks for the Republicans, it's a great boon for America.
Series of Tubes Quote from Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK)
"I just the
other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 o'clock in the morning on
Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why?
Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the internet commercially...
They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck.
It's a series of tubes.
And if you don't understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and its going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material."
[Senator Stevens,] you don't know jack *bleep* about computers or the Internet. Hey, that's OK. You're just the guy in charge of regulating it. - Jon Stewart on "The Daily Show," July 12, 2006

"While Barack Obama was campaigning in Germany, he spoke to a half million people in Germany, a half million people. And while he was doing that, John McCain, he wasn't laying around, no, no, John McCain was out driving in his driveway and he backed over the mailbox." --David Letterman

It's a year of superheroes
in Hollywood, with the big-budget epics of Batman, Iron Man and the Hulk, but a
big-budget production out of Washington, D.C., is carving a niche in the
Presumptive nominees John McCain and Barack Obama will star this fall in their own comic books put out by IDW Publishing, a San Diego-based publisher better known for telling the stories of robots ("The Transformers") and vampires ("30 Days of Night").
Barack Obama went to the doctor today. He has a sore hip, apparently. Finally, the two presidential candidates have something in common. - Craig Ferguson

The whole Republican party is corrupt. Giving tax cuts to the rich (who are rich by the way, not poor or busted) while running up a national debt is the same as stealing money from the government. - AHNC Viewer

"You know, they said on the news earlier tonight that this political campaign has only 100 days left. Only! Anybody complaining that this thing was dragging out? Oh, not quick enough? ... Only 100 days left. Oh, God! 100 Days. I don't know what's less likely, Barack Obama getting enough experience in 100 days, or John McCain living another 100 days." --Jay Leno

the only one who noticed the press' bias against John McCain. So has John
McCain. Last week, his campaign sent an e-mail to reporters saying, 'It's pretty
obvious that the media has a bizarre fascination with Barack Obama. Some may
even say it's a love affair.' This has got to be hard on McCain. It is tough
seeing your old flame with someone new. John McCain and the media had a very hot
fling back in the summer of 2000. They even had cute little nicknames for each
other. The press called McCain 'maverick,' and McCain called the press any time
he wanted favorable coverage." --Stephen Colbert
