The GOP is once again
divided over how the nation should treat its most dangerous terror suspects,
setting up a showdown in Congress just weeks away from elections
when all members will try to sell themselves as tough on terror.
"Some good news today on the war on terror. We have captured al Qaeda's No. 2 man--for the 47th time. See, our systems are so different. Over there, al Qaeda's No. 2 man is always getting captured and shot. Here, our No. 2 guy is the guy doing the shooting." --Jay Leno

"Al Qaeda has released another video. This is rather strange. It features a 28-year-old American named Adam Pearlman from Orange County, California. Who is in al Qaeda? How crazy is that? Finally, an American takes a job away from somebody overseas, and it's in al Qaeda." --Jay Leno
Subject: Argus Hamilton
I hope you enjoyed your vacation!
I'm writing just to say that I don't find Argus Hamilton, "comedian",
to be funny at all... I have a great sense of humor, trust me ;-)
I love the Leno/Letterman/Conan quotes, because they're usually funny.
Maybe Argus is funny outside the US, but I just don't get it. I wonder
if others feel the same way.
I did enjoy my vacation -- thanks for asking! I will be In Costa Rica till the end of the month taking care of medical, dental and rentals.
I started running Argus Hamilton because of a lack of one liners from the above mentioned during their recent vacations. It's hard, hard work finding current political humor on the net!
Does anyone else feel the same as Ken?

Because, no matter what happens, we'll always be Americans. Nothing can ever change that. Because even if women here had to start wearing burkhas, believe me, they would find a way to write the word "Juicy" on their ass. - Bill Maher
