Republican voters: 'Take back your party'
It is so much fun watching Republicans beat each other up, shoot themselves in the foot, get historical facts ass backwards, say torture isn't torture and then they wonder why only 21% of Americans consider themselves Republicans. Republicans are just like George W. Bush. They can't admit a mistake.
"And in a
move that has stunned Washington, D.C., longtime Pennsylvania Republican Senator
Arlen Specter has switched parties. He is the first Republican senator to switch
teams since Senator Larry Craig, I guess." --Jay Leno

A series of civil lawsuits against defense contractors KBR and its former parent company Halliburton claims the companies endangered the health of U.S. troops and contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan by unsafely burning massive amounts of garbage on U.S. bases.
"The White House was on lockdown because a small plane flew into restricted airspace. Say what you want, but Dick Cheney would have shot that thing down." --Jimmy Fallon
"Unemployment is continually rising,
foreclosures are through the roof. I saw a bumper sticker the other day that
said, 'If this van's a-rockin', it's because we live here now.'" --Bill
I mean, this is exciting. Air Force One was in New York City and apparently
nobody knew. They didn't make the call. Hello! Air Force One comes to New York
City and wants to take some pictures. They send it right up and start buzzing
New York City. I mean, isn't this something you would expect from the Bush
Administration?" --David Letterman
NC Rep. Foxx calls hate crime murder case a 'hoax' The Associated Press
RNC officials seek to rein in Steele Politico

Mayo." --Jay Leno

US Asking EU to Take Detainees New York Times
"Republican Senator Arlen Specter has contracted donkey flu. Folks, this disease is now officially out of control. Back in 2004, we thought we had it contained to the coasts and the cities, but then it mutated and tore through the country [on screen: a map of 2004, showing most states as red states. The next map, from 2008, showed more blue states than there previously were]. Republicans tried to fight it off, but their white cells weren't strong enough, although they were very, very white [on screen: photos of four prominent Republicans]. Now, we should have seen this coming, folks. Specter was exhibiting the classic symptoms of donkey flu: mild fever, and being 21 points behind in Republican primary polls. I want to warn Maine Republican Senators Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins to take every possible precaution. Donkey flu is highly contagious and virtually incurable. Only one man has ever beaten it, but clearly, it took a horrible toll [on screen: a photo of Independent Senator Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut]." --Stephen Colbert
Cheney talks up a storm over torture The China Post
those people on the news walking around wearing those surgical masks, huh? For

owe Michael an apology." --Jay Leno
Thank you all for your get well wishes.
I'm surprised I was able to post a new edition today considering I feel so awful, but I just couldn't sleep last night and today's edition is the end product. I hope it wasn't too god-awful. My judgment is highly impaired! lol
