It Takes the Village People to Raise a Monkey


"And I said on my program, if, if the Americans go in and overthrow Saddam Hussein and it's clean, he had nothing, I will apologize to the nation, and I will not trust the Bush administration again."  - Bill O'Reilly, March 18, 2003. Fair and Balanced or Wholly Without Merit, You Decide.

While we are negotiating the break-room and transportation clause in Anita Beer's new contract; we are lifting classics from the Planet Texas, Good Golly, Miss Molly Ivins.

I noticed Molly repeated this quote in her column twice in the last month. We agree.

Over 3000 old people died in France during their heat wave. Do you know why? Because their children went on vacation and left them to rot in the heat. These are the kind of people we’re dealing with.

-Brian Killmeade (Idiot morning host on Fox & Friends 5:35 am ct 9-5-03 )


I heard that on the Fair & Balanced Fox this morn.  This guy is another Bill O'Reilly wannabe.


Speaking of Bill O'Reilly you must go to this site and check it out.   O'Reilly should be ashamed of himself attacking Jeremy Glick, the son of a man who died in the WTC on 911.

Final Interview from the Lazy W

by One Citizen

George W. had just concluded his final photo-op at his Crawford, Texas compound (see photo below) when a reporter noticed one of Bush's neighbors nearby getting into an old pickup truck. Because of this assignment he hadn't been able to report any real news for the past month, so he desperately tried to strike up a conversation with the old-timer to see if he might have something interesting to offer.

"Sir... Hey! Can I talk to you for just a second?" the newsman asked.

"Well I was just leavin'... Got chores to tend-to". the older rancher said as he began rolling up his window.

"The flies seem be a bit worse this time of year" the veteran reporter commented. He had tried unsuccessfully to interview all of Dubya's neighbors during several of his past month-long Crawford vacation assignments, and was hoping that a more relaxed conversational style might get this one to stop long enough to open up a bit.

Not one to be rude, the old rancher stopped rolling up his window. "Them's circle-flies" he said, shooting the reporter a sidelong here for end of story

The surface of Venus is perpetually covered by a veil of thick clouds and remains hidden from even the powerful telescopic eyes of earth-bound astronomers. But in the early 1990s, using imaging radar, the Venus orbiting Magellan spacecraft was able to lift the veil from the face of Venus and produced spectacular high resolution images of the planet's surface. Colors used in this computer generated picture of Magellan radar data are based on color images from the surface of Venus transmitted by the Soviet Venera 13 and 14 landers. The bright area running roughly across the middle represents the largest highland region of Venus known as Aphrodite Terra. (NASA)
