IT'S not healthy to blow your favorite evening beverage through your nostrils

But that's how surprised I was to hear National Democratic Chairman Howard Dean deny that any Democrats took money from Jack Abramoff…But, I checked it out and, guess what? Dean was right. Although both Democrats and Republicans did, in fact, receive money from Abramoff's clients, only Republicans received personal donations from Abramoff himself.



Re: "Condoleezza Rice's anti-Russian stance based on sexual problems"

Pravda is right - and wrong - regarding this. It’s not just Kindasleezy who has "sexual problems" that makes her "a very cruel, offended" person who

"[r]eleas[es] such stupid remarks ." Which person - man or woman - in this group of thugs couldn’t have his/her name replaced for Kindasleezy in this article and not have it be just as true? None. Certainly not Bush, Cheney, McClellan, etc. etc. (Aside: if the photo of the guy in the article is the author, he looks like he’s got a few problems himself).

This is a cabal of sexually-repressed individuals whose perversions cause them to turn to war and destruction as their only outlets. This is a sexually-strange country anyway, but this bunch at the top are the most puritanical, and thus most hateful, of all. They all are "especially dangerous ... malicious ... that evoke hatred and irritation with everyone."

Sex, lies and videotape to come from Bush Inc?

Seriously, can any of the Bush Cabal list "babe magnet" on their resume?

From Ventura to Vampires

Minnesota voters, who eight years ago elected a former professional wrestler as their governor, may find a self-proclaimed vampire on the ballot for the office this year.

"Politics is a cut-throat business," said Jonathan "The Impaler" Sharkey, who said he plans to announce his bid for governor Friday on the ticket of the Vampyres, Witches and Pagans Party.

  • I'm confused. If a man can get a vasectomy without government interference, why can't a woman get an abortion without government interference? (or what is the difference between regulating what passes through the fallopian tubes and not regulating what passes through the vas deferens tubes?)

  • Are there any government regulations concerning the male reproductive system?

  • Why wasn't Alito asked these questions?

because the dems no longer feel we need any civil liberties , , welcome to The New World Order.



A sampling of viewers reactions:


Gazillions of lives are lost when a man has a vasectomy! Think of all those sperm and no where to go.


  • I'm confused. If a man can get a vasectomy without government interference, why can't a woman get an abortion without government interference?

  • For the same reason there are far more ads for Viagra than there are for birth control pills.

  • Are there any government regulations concerning the male reproductive system?

  • Not really. Ours is a society that is still too puritanical, chauvanistic and misogynistic. The real progress in women's rights that has been made on the surface in our country has always been compromised by an undercurrent of sexual discrimination. It's just more subtle here than in some societies. And even that progress is now being threatened as never before.

  • Why wasn't Alito asked these questions?

  • Because too many Democrats feel very comfortable in their role as Republican Lites. And the Republicans? Well, enough said.
