Too Confused To Be President
"Actually, just look at what Osama - Barack Obama - said just yesterday. Barack Obama, calling on radicals, jihadists of all different types, to come together in Iraq. That is the battlefield. ... It's almost as if the Democratic contenders for president are living in fantasyland. Their idea for jihad is to retreat, and their idea for the economy is to also retreat. And in my view, both efforts are wrongheaded."...Mr Romney refused to discuss the error, which was made at a campaign speech in South Carolina. A spokesman for Mr Obama said: "Apparently, Mitt Romney can switch names just as casually as he switches positions, but what's wrongheaded is continuing a misguided war in Iraq that has left America less safe."
“More bad news today for Barack Obama. You hear what happened? Oh, boy. Yeah, yeah. He just found out he’s related to Bill O’Reilly, too. The guy can’t get a break!”- Jay Leno

Republican Calls for Raid on Democratic Meeting
presidential candidate on Tuesday called for a federal immigration raid at a
meeting in the U.S. Capitol hosted by the Senate's No. 2 Democrat. No one
from Immigration and Customs Enforcement showed up despite GOP Rep. Tom Tancredo
of Colorado's call, Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin of Illinois said
"His hatred for people who are immigrants is boundless," Durbin said.
Tancredo issued a news release saying he had called federal immigration officials to warn them that illegal immigrants might show up at Durbin's meeting promoting the DREAM Act.
“And a new study says that screeners at L.A. International Airport” missed “75% of the fake bombs that were sent through the lines. It’s unbelievable. However, they did confiscate 100% of people’s water bottles. So you have to go buy a new one at the airport gift shop for five bucks a piece. They did get that.” - Jay Leno

Subject: A quote for you
I've been reading your column and watching the hilarious jokes about
most unamerican american ever for almost a year now, with great
everytime. I was searching a word today on an eminent source of
etymology, http://www.etymonline.com , and found a quote by another
american president which actually fits this administration rather well.
"Everything is un-American that tends either to government by a
plutocracy or government by a mob." [Theodore Roosevelt, 1917]
At least I think it is fitting to see this quote in the light of the
fact that the vicepresident was head of an oil company (and he still is
pulling the strings in the same company somehow) which is part of a
plutocracy and the angry mob that is the new conservative republicans.
Don't you agree?
Keep up the good work, even after Bush is long gone,
Thank you Carl.
I sure do agree.
Hillary Clinton said there was a vast right wing conspiracy. She was right and they're ruining my country and the world.
I apologize for that.
I'm thankful I have the ability to have friends on all sides of the political spectrum. My friends and I have political debates and we learn from each other. We don't engage in hateful diatribes. We often use humor to make our political points. I guess that's why we're friends. And that is why I've always liked Bill Clinton, he has the ability to keep the lines of communication open, without personally attacking anyone with made-up junk and often using humor to make his point.
Here's a great example of Bill Clinton's humor in August 1993, right before the Republican convention, when Papa Bush's campaign was in full personal attack mode and admittedly so.
Mr. Bush, or at least his campaign, plans to go after not only Gov. Bill Clinton of Arkansas but also the Democratic nominee's wife, Hillary. A senior strategist said: "No sleaze, but maybe some draft-dodging, a lot about his record as Governor, and plenty about Hillary. She's more than fair game."...Responding to the attacks on Mrs. Clinton here, he said, "You'd think he was running for First Lady." And with scorn: "They haven't had anything positive to say about themselves. If I were the Republicans, I'd be more worried about what I could do for America than how I could bad-mouth Bill Clinton and Al Gore and Hillary Clinton and Tipper Gore."
Fair game? Isn't that the name of Valerie Plame Wilson's new book?
I miss having an intelligent president who really cared about America and the world.
