Sen. Trent Lott resigning? Wow, he must have been caught having an affair. And since he's a Republican, it's a toss up whether the affair is with a man or a woman. Or both. Or a Congressional page. Or in a public restroom. Or...

President Bush denied Tuesday that he knew anything about a cover-up of the leak of Valerie Plame's CIA identity. He's in a fix. For years people said President Bush didn't know anything, and now when he says he didn't know anything, nobody believes him. - Argus Hamilton, comedian

We Must Invade Brazil
In a recent radio
broadcast, Brazil's President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva said he's convinced a
"higher power" has taken a shining to Brazil. That, he said, might explain the
providence of state-run oil company Petrobras (PBR), whose colossal new oil
discovery could transform Brazil from a barely self-sufficient producer into a
major crude exporter...Initially, Tupi will produce about 100,000 barrels a day
but may ramp up to as much as 1 million before 2020—more than the biggest U.S.
field in Alaska's Prudhoe Bay, says Hugo Repsold, Petrobras' exploration and
production strategy manager. "It's monstrous," says Matthew Shaw, a Latin
America energy analyst at consultant Wood Mackenzie in London.

Former Sen. Fred
Thompson (R-Tenn.) suggested on Sunday that Fox News is biased against his
campaign, charging that the network highlights commentators who have been
critical of his run for the presidency.
In an interview on "Fox News Sunday," host Chris Wallace pressed Thompson on how some conservatives have lambasted Thompson's campaign and showed clips of Fox conservative commentators Charles Krauthammer and Fred Barnes criticizing the former senator.
Thompson said, "This has been a constant mantra of Fox, to tell you the truth."

In federal courts and on Capitol Hill, challenges are brewing to a key legal strategy President Bush is using to protect a secret surveillance program that monitors phone calls and e-mails inside the United States.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday if his party wins big in the next election, it will give him the moral right to stay in power. He's muzzled the media and taken over the oil industry and runs a security state. Vladimir Putin is a lot like Dick Cheney, except he was taught to shoot by the KGB, so if he hits a lawyer it wasn't by accident. - Argus Hamilton
Alabama coach Nick Saban compared his team's loss to Louisiana Monroe Saturday to Pearl Harbor and the Twin Towers attack. Crimson Tide fans are mortified. They don't feel that anyone should minimize a catastrophe like the loss of a football game. - Argus Hamilton, comedian
