"Last night, John McCain said that under the Democratic health care plan, a bureaucrat would stand between you and your doctor, as opposed to the Republican health care plan, where an accountant would stand between you and your health care." -Jay Leno

College Republican Makes Fun Of Obama's Lips
The leader of a
statewide group of college Republicans has been forced to resign after posting
racially insensitive comments about Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama
on the Internet.
Adam LaDuca, 21, the former executive director of the Pennsylvania Federation of College Republicans, wrote on his Facebook page in late July that Obama has "a pair of lips so large he could float half of Cuba to the shores of Miami (and probably would.)"

actually didn't. Bush was at the Hurricane Command Center, taking credit for a
perfect emergency response to a perfect non-emergency. Although he actually did
cause some panic, because viewers at home saw him sitting there, doing nothing,
and they thought maybe it was another terrorist attack." -Bill Maher

Since many of us have

as we grow older, I thought a reminder of how

if you want at least the hope things could be better, vote for Senator Obama.

was the main thrust of John McCain's message? [on screen: McCain saying business

No. No. No, no, not that guy [on screen: President Bush in 2000 saying he wants
to 'change' Washington]. That's the guy! I remember that! He's going to change
the tone of Washington. How did that work out?" -Jon Stewart

Rumors On The Internets
Lance Armstrong will always
have Paris, where he completed his seven consecutive Tour de France triumphs —
the last in 2005.
Why would he want to do it again?
The question was raised anew Monday on the Internet following an unattributed story by VeloNews that Armstrong will come out of retirement and compete in the 2009 Tour and four other races with Team Astana.
However, Astana team director Johan Bruyneel, who was with Armstrong for all seven Tour wins from 1999-2005, told CyclingNews.com that he was unaware of any Armstrong comeback.
"I don't know where the rumors come from," the website quoted him as saying.
"Actually, some Republicans are not that thrilled with McCain's speech. In fact, the rumor is Sarah Palin is thinking of dropping him from the ticket." -Jay Leno

Happy Birthday Lisa!
Don't you hate sharing your birthday week with 9-11. I remembered your birthday because we share the same day.
Happy Birthday to you too Craig! Thank you so much for remembering.
I don't mind sharing my birthday week with 9-11 as much as I do mind sharing my astrological sign, Virgo, with John McCain! The horror of it all.
I hope you had a good time today
