British MPs visiting the
Pentagon to discuss America's stance on Iran and Iraq were shocked to be told by
one of President Bush's senior women officials:

The all-party group of MPs say Debra Cagan, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Coalition Affairs to Defense Secretary Robert Gates, made the comments this month.

There is a new book out this week about President Bush by one of his longtime fans, Bill Sammon. I think Bill is going to be on our show soon. It’s called The Evangelical President. And it’s pretty standard Bush idolatry. You know, he’s smarter than you think; [laughter] his enemies are just jealous; he’s ahead of his time. And, by the way, if you order it through Amazon, they recommend you might also like the “ten pound bag of bulls**t.”- Bill Maher

I don’t know why this happened...I mean, he – he said he was “shocked and delighted to see there is no difference between a black-owned restaurant and a white-owned restaurant.” Which is true, because apparently they both serve “crackers.” - Bill Maher
