Courtroom, Laughter at Fox and a Victory for Al Franken
By SUSAN SAULNY - NY TIMES
A federal judge in Manhattan told Fox News yesterday that it had to learn
how to take a joke. Then he rejected the network's request for an injunction
to block the satirist Al Franken from using the words "fair and balanced" on
the cover of his book, "Lies, and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and
Balanced Look at the Right."
No Flinching in War on Terror, Bush Vows
Guardian, UK - 8-23-03
... Bush returned to his Texas ranch Friday night after a two-day tour
through the Pacific Northwest. There, where he was often greeted by scores
of protesters, the president added over $2.4 million to his already fattened
re-election campaign account, and pitched his policies on salmon restoration
and wildfire prevention.
Bush must be bummed having his every other month vacation interrupted by so many events. But just as Poppy taught him, just golf and fundraise to get those annoying disturbances off your mind. And Dubya sure follows Poppy's advice to the tee.

WOULD YOU PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO 'HIS' HONOR"?
Joe Scab, Rush, Jeb and Allan in a g-string? Oh Lord, that is an obscene visual. Ewww. But their obscenity extends exactly to where you described so eloquently. I'm surprised Florida hasn't been attacked by terrorists yet --oh wait, we already have been, by these compassionate conservatives conserving everything for themselves.
Thanks for writing. And by the way, Joe and his friends read this website. Believe me. He'll get your message.

Great site. Very entertaining and enlightening.
I often receive spam about getting these drugs over the Internet and wondered how could this be? You answered my question--"Could it be that these physicians, pharmacists and pharmaceutical manufacturers tend to be loyal benefactors to politicians in both parties? " I think you hit the nail on the head.
I've always wondered why the government does not regulate these "natural drugs" you buy at health food stores. I remember a few years ago on C-SPAN watching Orrin Hatch (I think it was Hatch, if not, maybe one of our fabulous readers would know who) owned one of these natural drug companies--and was sickened by the fact that such a powerful politician could endanger people by not checking what the heck are contained in these so-called natural drugs.
Thanks for writing and glad you like our site.
Katherine Harris and Governor Jeb Bush celebrate
his brother's victory in Florida, again.
By Libby R.L. Media
Tallahassee, Fla. -- Katherine Harris, Citrus Heiress, millionairess and Jeb
Bush's Secretary of State celebrated today by exchanging gifts. Ms. Harris gave
Gov. Bush a new tie she designed and Gov. Bush gave her a Carmen Miranda hat
and some Sangria. Gov. Bush admits being partial to Latino customs and food.
I did this toon in December 2000. It just seemed appropriate to rerun today. I just love Harris' hat and Jeb's tie.
"When the Republicans ran the Congress and Clinton was in the White House, there was no accusation too small for them to pursue, now that President Bush is in power, there's no scandal so large that they have any interest in examining it."
-California Rep. Henry Waxman, the senior Democrat on the House Government Reform Committee

Yeah, we noticed, Dubya.
