Cheney mulled Israeli strike on Iran: Newsweek
Memo from Cheney: Do not write this down
Warping the lessons of Watergate
Cheney and Soprano have a lot in common -- they both love money, secrecy and guns!
"Hillary Clinton criticized Vice President Cheney and called him 'Darth Vader.' Cheney denied it and said, 'Darth Vader is evil, half-machine and always wears a cape. And I don't own a cape.'" --Conan O'Brien

Hillary did call Dick Cheney “Darth Vader.” So we got that, you know. Yeah, she called him “Darth Vader,” which is very unfair. Because Darth Vader would have caught Bin Laden by now.- Bill Maher
Federal prosecutors are investigating whether employees of the private security firm Blackwater USA illegally smuggled into Iraq weapons that may have been sold on the black market and ended up in the hands of a U.S.-designated terrorist organization, officials said Friday.
"Reporters at the Washington-based web site The Politico said that Larry Craig's return to the Capitol this week was 'about as wanted as a mystery meat sandwich.' ... Which was what Craig was asking the undercover cop for." --Jay Leno

"There are now allegations that New England Patriots Coach Bill Belichick may have tampered with the stadium's audio frequencies to eavesdrop on the other teams' conversations. But the good news of these spying allegations is that today Belichick was offered a job with the Bush administration." --Jay Leno
You know, I have to say the Democrats are so useless they could not even pass a bill to get our troops more time between deployments. Only the Republicans could make an argument that a bill that literally supports the troops didn’t support the troops. And only the Democrats could lose that argument. Next week, the Democrats are getting to vote whether to give Republicans all their lunch money or just some of it. - Bill Maher

today, President Bush gave a press conference to talk about an issue on
everyone's mind -- health care. Specifically, this so-called SCHIP insurance
bill. It's a Democratic measure that would expand what children would be
eligible for federally funded health insurance. And you know why that's bad [on
screen: Bush saying, 'The SCHIP plan is an incremental step toward the goal of
government run health care for every American']. Oh my God, they're gonna put
Communism in our kids' drinking water ... and then inject them with the gay and
load them on Michael Moore and float them to Cuba!" --Jon Stewart

"So obviously, the president has a better idea [on screen: Bush saying, 'I believe the best approach is to put more power in the hands of individuals. By empowering people and their doctors...']. Okay, I'm just going to stop him right there. ... I think I figured out the disconnect here. I think I figured out the problem. 'Empowering people and their doctors.' See, he thinks the uninsured have doctors." --Jon Stewart
Oh, that General Petraeus. You know that the Republicans are still angry about this ten-day-old MoveOn.org ad, you know, that General Petraeus, he betrayed us. And the Senate actually voted to condemn an ad. That’s what your government did yesterday. They held a vote to pass a resolution to condemn an ad with a pun in it. And then they had Oreos and braided each other’s hair.- Bill Maher
Lord of the Flies
Former Press Secretary
Tony Snow says that when a little black fly shows up, Bush gets to work "chasing
flies around the Oval Office.
It drives him crazy when flies get in." And Bush is so well known as a fly
hunter among his White House staff, says Snow, that somebody "made him White
House fly swatters."
Vicente Fox, the former president of Mexico, he’s got a book coming out where he talks about George Bush. And he said that Bush, the cowboy, is afraid of horses. Well, actually, he’s not afraid of them, but he had a bad experience. Because back in college, a horse defeated him in a debate. - Bill Maher

The 'Nano Air Vehicle,' or NAV (R) is designed to carry interchangeable payload modules. Like the seeds of a silver maple tree (L) that it resembles, the single-winged device would pack a tiny two-stage rocket thruster along with telemetry, communications, navigation, imaging sensors and a power source. The keychain-sized device holds the potential to transmit data that could change the way the U.S. military and other users perform a range of critical missions, including homeland security, Lockheed Martin Corp. says.
