$50 Billion More
President Bush plans to ask Congress next month for up to $50 billion in additional funding for the war in Iraq, a White House official said yesterday, a move that appears to reflect increasing administration confidence that it can fend off congressional calls for a rapid drawdown of U.S. forces.

Stop saying Barack Obama isn't black enough! First, you aren't sure America was ready for a black president. Now he's not black enough? "I like his stand on the issues, but can he dunk?" Why are we even talking about him this way? Mitt Romney, now there's someone who's not black enough to be president. -Bill Maher

A Trio Of Limericks For Idaho Senator Larry Craig
By Madeleine Begun Kane
Craig confessed to a crime in the loo
He proclaims that he never would do,
Cuz he’s straight as can be:
He was just there to pee,
And perversions he’d always eschew.
When Larry was under arrest,
He was stressed, which is why he confessed.
All his actions are pure
And he’s really demure
And not gay … except when undressed.
Larry Craig says he has a wide stance
In the john when he zips down his pants.
He’s an innocent man:
His arrest in the can
Was an error, cuz Craig ain’t a nance.
