Oh, SNAP. Getting paid to stay at home. What is that, welfare for Republicans?



Now Sarah Palin knows foreign policy because Alaska is next to Russia. You know, I used to live next to a McDonald’s, but that don’t make me an expert on F.D.A. regulations. – Will Durst

Barack Plays The Humor Card


Barack Obama poked some fun at his Arabic-derived first name to explain the need for the constitutional right of prisoners to appeal their detention.

He said U.S. authorities sometimes mistakenly arrest the wrong person, confusing "Muhammad the terrorist" with "Muhammad the cab driver" or "Barack the bomb-thrower" with "Barack, the guy running for president."

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.)"


"Hey, did you all see John McCain last night? He gave a great speech. And you've got to admit, he looked so life-like, didn't he?" -Jay Leno




"Bush didn't make the convention because the hurricane, Gustav, hit New Orleans, but 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


Subject: a reminder


Since many of us have short-term memory loss
as we grow older, I thought a reminder of how
and why we are in the mess we're in was in order.

If you want 4 more years like the last 8, vote for Senator McCain, but
if you want at least the hope things could be better, vote for Senator Obama.

Dueling Obamas


Barack Obama competed against himself Monday with interviews airing simultaneously on two different networks. They might as well have been two different galaxies.

"Cindy McCain appeared at the Republican National Convention, and Vanity Fair took a look at an outfit she wore. The magazine priced it out at around $300,000. With that kind of money, you could buy an 11th house." -Jimmy Kimmel

"But what was the main thrust of John McCain's message? [on screen: McCain saying business in Washington needs to be changed]. Hmm. That's funny. I think I remember another guy with a very similar message [on screen: Obama talking about change]. 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



"During John McCain's speech last night, an anti-Republican heckler began yelling at him. Yeah. Officials removed the man and immediately gave him a job at MSNBC." -Conan O'Brien

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

Residents in Key West, Fla., who didn't adhere to the resident evacuation orders for Hurricane Ike, celebrate the cancellation of a hurricane watch for the Florida Keys on the island's Duval Street Monday, Sept. 8, 2008. Ike's devastating core is expected to pass well south and west of Key West, sparing the Keys island chain of hurricane force winds and major impact.
