Dems Call for Gonzales
Gonzales 'stands by' apparently contradictory testimony
Gonzales must have learned from Bush -- if you tell a lie enough times, someone will believe it.
“But the doctors
found five polyps [in President Bush]. And I was thinking well hell, maybe we should send these guys
up and look for bin Laden.” - David Letterman

Document uncovers details of a planned coup in the USA in 1933 by a group of right-wing American businessmen.
The coup was aimed at toppling President Franklin D Roosevelt with the help of half-a-million war veterans. The plotters, who were alleged to involve some of the most famous families in America, (owners of Heinz, Birds Eye, Goodtea, Maxwell Hse & George Bush’s Grandfather, Prescott) believed that their country should adopt the policies of Hitler and Mussolini to beat the great depression.
President Harding...Harding sucked, but he once said, "I am not fit for this office and never should have been here." So at least he knew he sucked. He never walked offstage like Bush does after one of his embarrassing, language-mangling press conferences--with that smirk on his face like, "Nailed it!" Or maybe that's just the look you get when you have a showdown with the Democrats, and you win. Like he just did with Iraq. You don't get to become the worst president ever without a little help from the other side.- Bill Maher

If Mitt Romney wants respect for the Mormon religion, he has to start wearing a funny hat. Orthodox Jews? Crazy, but they wear funny hats, so you can't diss them. Sikhs. I'm not even sure they're a religion, but I know better than to mess with the hat. The Pope. What does that hat even mean? "I'm infallible"? "I'm a sailboat"? - Bill Maher
It's Official - Bush Has Ruined the Military
presidential panel on military and veterans health care released a report
concluding that the system was insufficient for the demands of two modern wars
and called for improvements, including far-reaching changes in the way the
government determines the disability status and benefits of injured soldiers and
was up all night on Wikipedia doing an exhaustive study of former presidents.
And while other presidents have sucked in their own individual ways, Bush is
like a smorgasbord of "suck." He -- he combines the corruption of Warren G.
Harding, the war-mongering of James Polk, and the abuse of power of Richard
Nixon. - Bill Maher
It's Official - Pat Tillman Is Still A Hero, General Demoted
Secretary Peter Geren is expected to recommend
that a retired three-star general be demoted for his role in providing
misleading information about the death of Army Ranger Pat Tillman, military
officials say, in what would be a stinging and rare rebuke.

“Now here’s something pretty serious. It seems a worker at the Oak Ridge National Lab in Tennessee, home of the atomic bomb, has been accused of stealing classified secrets on the uranium enrichment process to sell to foreign countries. Seems he had a pretty easy time pulling off this crime. Apparently, all the police in town were at Barnes & Noble guarding the new ‘Harry Potter’ books.” - Jay Leno
