Bush the Unprober
“It was relatively easy for me to read the sitting president’s body language after he had talked to his mother or father,” Mr. Andrew Card said. “Sometimes he’d ask me a probing question. And I’d think, Hmm, I don’t think that question came from him.”

The Smack Surge in Afghanistan
Just outside the main gate to Bagram airfield, a U.S. military installation in Afghanistan, sits a series of small makeshift shops known by locals as the Bagram Bazaar. For Afghans, it is the place to buy American goods, but the stalls that make up the heart of the bazaar are also well known for what they provide American soldiers stationed at Bagram. Walking through the bazaar it takes less than 10 minutes for a vendor in his early 20s to step out and ask, "You want whiskey?" "No, heroin," I tell him. He ushers me into his store with a smile.
"Supreme Court Justice John Roberts is back on the bench, even though he is prone to seizures. ... When President Bush heard this, he said, 'That's great 'cause I'm prone to illegal searches'" --Jay Leno

24% Say Clinton Would Not Be Influenced By Lobbyist Rasmussen Reports
"Mitt Romney -- the only candidate named after a glove, one of the leading Republicans, he's called the war on terror the defining mission of our generation -- was asked in Iowa today why none of his five draft-age or army eligible sons are serving in the military. He said -- and this is a quote, people -- 'One of the ways my sons are showing support for the nation is helping me get elected, 'cause they think I'd make a great president.' When I read that, I was moved ... and I'll tell you why. To know that the Romney boys love America so much and the whole family that they're willing to give up all five of their boys for the Romney campaign. Who knows what kind of post-traumatic care these boys will need after the election?" --Jon Stewart

Bush: No Bail Out For The Homeless

Subject: Bush has lyme disease?
Let me get this
straight. George Bush had lyme disease and it went unreported for a year. I
checked and among the symptoms of lyme disease are lethargy, forgetfulness,
confusion, difficulty thinking and difficulty with speech. I don't think his
lyme disease went unreported - I think it went unnoticed.
Hahaha! Thanks for writing!

That's the same problem Michael Jackson's people have." --Jay Leno
