"President Bush also says he's going to ask Congress for $10 billion more for Afghanistan: $10 billion. You know, I got a solution for the people of New Orleans. Put on turbans, throw rocks at each other, change your name to 'Kabul,' you'll get $10 billion like that. Okay?" - Jay Leno

Laboring in a war with no
discernible front line, more than 770 civilian contractors have died in Iraq
since the U.S.-led invasion began in March 2003.
Statistics kept by the Labor Department indicate fatalities among civilian contractors working for American firms escalated rapidly late last year, with at least 301 dying in Iraq in 2006 -- including 124 in the final three months...And the recent troop "surge" announced by President Bush has prompted KBR to increase its hiring.

From high-dollar fraud to
conspiracy to bribery and bid rigging, Army investigators have opened up to 50
criminal probes involving battlefield contractors in the war in Iraq and the
U.S. fight against terrorism, the Associated Press has learned.
Senior contracting officials, government employees, residents of other countries and, in some cases, U.S. military personnel have been implicated in millions of dollars of fraud allegations....The Pentagon has viewed outsourcing a wide variety of military tasks as much more efficient, leaving troops trained in combat to the business of war.
Pennsylvania Republican Don Sherwood -- he's a congressman and car dealer who
lost his House seat last Fall after he ran an ad admitting he had a mistress --
is refusing to pay her the rest of the half a million dollars he promised her.
Let that be a lesson to all young women out there -- when you sleep with a
member of Congress, get your money up front. ... This woman is surprised he
lied. She is surprised he lied? He's a politician, a car dealer and a guy.
That's the trifecta of lying." --Jay Leno

Bush ventured out of the White House on a chilly Saturday night to a Washington
hotel warmed by a roast of bigwig guests...The event was closed to news media
The club is named after the alfalfa plant because its roots will range far afield to reach liquid refreshment. Its sole task is holding the annual dinner. Founded in 1913, the club was off-limits to women until 1994 when then-first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton attended the event with President Clinton.

"Here's a very odd story. In Florida, a duck that was shot by a duck hunter is doing fine after the hunter found it still alive in his refrigerator two days later. You hear about this story? This guy shoots a duck, puts in his refrigerator. Two days later, opens the door, hears a 'quack.' And today, a worried Dick Cheney checked his deep freezer to see if any lawyer's still in there." - Jay Leno
