Bush's definition of torture is as twisted as his definition of compassionate conservatives.
"This morning on Capitol Hill ... four bathroom fires broke out inside the Senate office building. Inside one bathroom, three big, burly firemen broke the door down, kicked in the stall, and Senator Craig said, 'My dreams have come true.'" --Jay Leno
Senator Larry Craig
Every time I bake a potato, Idaho or not, I think of Larry Craig and giggle.

Supporting or Screwing Our Troops?
When they came home from
Iraq, 2,600 members of the Minnesota National Guard had been deployed longer
than any other ground combat unit. The tour lasted 22 months and had been
extended as part of President Bush's surge.
1st Lt. Jon Anderson said he never expected to come home to this: A government refusing to pay education benefits he says he should have earned under the GI bill.
Anderson's orders, and the orders of 1,161 other Minnesota guard members, were written for 729 days.
Had they been written for 730 days, just one day more, the soldiers would receive those benefits to pay for school.
"This is an impressive crowd, the haves and the have-mores. Some people call you the elite. I call you my base." - George W Bush, Al Smith Memorial Dinner in New York, 19th October 2000
Jenna Bush and White House Ghosts
“I feel like it’s filled
with millions of ghosts. I get scared there sometimes. I’m not kidding. I have
heard ghosts, I really have—ghosts singing opera. One night, opera noises came
out of my fireplace. When I told my sister, she didn’t believe me, but the next
week we were up late in that bedroom and we heard 1950’s piano music.
People will think
I’m crazy for saying that.”

Bush: We Do NOT Torture
How the United States
became associated with torture is not just a matter of historical interest. And
that's all the more clear today, with the publication of a major New York Times
story describing the Bush administration's ongoing circumvention of national and
international prohibitions against barbaric interrogation practices.
In other words: It continues.
"The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Rudy Giuliani has taken cell phone calls from his wife over 40 times during speeches. 40 times! And each time, it was a different wife calling" --Jay Leno

What Are They Drinking In Idaho?
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -
Security guards refused to allow a woman into a federal courthouse until she
removed a bra that triggered a metal detector.
Lori Plato said she and her husband, Owen Plato, were stunned when U.S. Marshals Service employees asked her to remove her bra after the underwire supports set off the alarm.
"I asked if I could go into the bathroom because they didn't have a privacy screen and no women security officers were available," Plato said Wednesday. "They said, 'No.'
"According to a new survey, 52% of people have had sex with a colleague at work. 52%! You know, I can never look at Hannity and Colmes the same way again." --Jay Leno

This artist's conception provided by NASA Wednesday Oct. 3, 2007 shows a binary-star, or two-star, system, called HD 113766, where astronomers suspect a rocky Earth-like planet is forming around one of the stars. Using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, astronomers have spotted a huge belt of warm dust swirling around a young star called HD 113766 that is just slightly larger than our sun. At approximately 10 million years old, the star is just the right age for forming rocky planets, the researchers say. Photo/NASA
