If America is such a great democracy, why aren't our leaders listening to us?



"In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Rudy Giuliani said he is guided by Jesus and the Bible, and he doesn't want people to judge his private life. He then said, 'Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.' And then Mitt Romney hit him in the head with a rock" --Jay Leno

Tortured Thomas


He was 43 and had one year of judicial experience when Bush the Elder nominated him to replace Thurgood Marshall on the court. Even Thomas can't seriously believe Bush's claim that he was the "most qualified" candidate.

In the interview with Kroft, Thomas spoke of his experience at Yale Law School, which set aside a number of slots for minority students. He said he sees his Yale law degree as "tainted," worth less than a white student's degree.






"Did you know homosexuals are executed in Iran? ... But only if a homosexual act either between two men or two women is witnessed by four or more other men. That shows you the difference in our culture. ... Like in Iran, two women having sex witnessed by four men, that's called a capital crime. See, here, that would be called a bachelor party." --Jay Leno





"The old, toe-tapping senator from the great state of Idaho, Larry Craig ... has changed his mind and is not going to resign. You know what it is? I don't think he wants to give up the key to the executive washroom. ... You know that bathroom in the Minneapolis airport where he got caught? Well, the airport is now spending a ton of money to build new stall dividers that go all the way to the ground ... to make it a less inviting spot for sexual activity. And today, Senator Craig said, 'Minneapolis, tear down that wall!'" --Jay Leno

"PBS host Tavis Smiley ... was the moderator at the Republican debate on minority issues at Morgan State University. But not one of the four leading Republican candidates -- Giuliani, Thompson, McCain or Romney-- showed up for the debate on black issues. How are you going to stand up to the terrorists when you're afraid of a guy named Tavis Smiley?" --Jay Leno

 Wouldn't It Be Cool If Anita Hill Sued Justice Thomas for Libel AND Slander?


In a particularly nasty blow, Justice Thomas attacked my religious conviction, telling “60 Minutes” this weekend, “She was not the demure, religious, conservative person that they portrayed.” Perhaps he conveniently forgot that he wrote a letter of recommendation for me to work at the law school at Oral Roberts University, in Tulsa. I remained at that evangelical Christian university for three years, until the law school was sold to Liberty University, in Lynchburg, Va., another Christian college.
