President Bush told reporters Tuesday that Condi Rice is handling all phone calls to U.S. allies and brokering the Lebanon cease-fire. He's kicking back in the easy chair while Condi does all the work. And people say he's not really a Southerner. ---- comedian Argus Hamilton

"How embarrassing is this: Former White House domestic advisor Claude Allen has pled guilty to a misdemeanor theft charge for stealing stuff from Target and then taking it back for a refund. Guy works in the White House, he would steal stuff from Target and then bring it back to get the money. How embarrassing is that? Republicans shopping at Target." --Jay Leno
Subject: What to name after Bush
If we have to
name something after Bush, I'd prefer it to be his cemetery.
Reagan was the absolute most hideous leader ever. Bush is too incompetent to ever challenge that fact.
I never understood renaming airports, the Florida Turnpike, etc... after Ronald Reagan. He fired the air traffic controllers while president, did absolutely nothing positive for the state of Florida highways and the GOP even named an aircraft carrier after him. I guess it's the GOP way to put false idols in front of us.
Lisa, do you
think a Sewage Treatment Plant might be more appropriate for GWB, even though a
Federal Prison sounds good if he is locked up in it.
Haha. The George W. Bush Sewage Treatment Plant does have a nice ring to it!
Also, now I do think it was appropriate to rename the CIA Headquarters "The George H.W. Bush Center for Central Intelligence" considering their track record for the past 40 years.

When All Else Fails, Blame the Clintons
The only scheduled debate between the Republican
candidates for Senate turned into a mud-slinging match last night when
Kathleen (KT) McFarland accused her opponent, John Spencer, of
philandering and nepotism.
"John, the problem with you is that you are like the Clintons: You've taxed and spent like Hillary and you've behaved like Bill," McFarland said.
"We are considering sending every voter a copy of that debate," crowed Howard Wolfson, spokesman for Sen. Hillary Clinton.
Lieberman's Website still down
Holey Joe Fires Entire Staff
Lieberman said that he fired his campaign manager and spokesman, andasked for the resignations of his campaign staff.
The Richard Nixon Library on Tuesday marked the thirty-second anniversary of his resignation. In the final days he drank heavily and blamed the Jews for all his problems. We never knew until today that what he really wanted to do was direct. ---- comedian Argus Hamilton

Another Laptop Theft, This Time In Flori-duh
A laptop computer used by the
Department of Transportation to combat fraud was stolen in Doral last
month, putting the sensitive personal information of almost 133,000
Florida residents at risk of the criminal activity the agency was trying
to guard against.
Social Security numbers, birth dates and addresses were on the laptop assigned to a special agent in the Miami office when it was stolen from a government-owned vehicle
The government said it may have to dip
into the strategic petroleum reserve. That oil is only to be released to the
public in an emergency. You know, like at election time. -- Jay Leno

"Yesterday the company BP announced that it's shutting down its Alaska pipeline after a spill revealed some corrosion. The shutdown means the cutoff of 8% of our domestic oil supply and another uptick in the prices, because you know summer was just too awesome. You all remember BP, they're the cool oil company, their slogan is beyond petroleum because apparently that can leak. BP even invites their customers to speak to them. Oh, I have a question. Hey, you know that main pipeline that connects your product to the U.S. mainland. You ever check that?." --Jon Stewart

“Here's an odd story -- a candidate for the president of the Congo has called a press conference to deny that he is a cannibal and said he has never eaten any pygmy. That's what he said. Finally, a candidate who cares about the little people.” -- Jay Leno
