We always knew Bush was a thug, didn't we?



"The Forbes list of the 400 richest Americans is out. Everybody on the list is now a billionaire. You can't even be a millionaire and be on the list, you have to be a billionaire to be on the list. So see that, the Bush tax cuts are working" --Jay Leno

Obstructing Congress


 A leading Democratic lawmaker on Tuesday accused Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice of interfering in congressional inquiries into corruption in Iraq's government and the activities of U.S. security firm Blackwater...Waxman also released a letter signed by State Department contracting officer Kiazan Moneypenny to Blackwater.

"I hereby direct Blackwater to make no disclosure of documents or information ... unless such disclosure has been authorized in writing by the contracting officer," wrote Moneypenny.

Waxman also complained Rice was refusing to testify at any hearings his committee planned to look at political reconciliation in Iraq, corruption or the Blackwater incident.


How do you keep a leader as verbally gaffe-prone as U.S. President George W. Bush from making even more slips of the tongue?




Disturbing News




A Florida Republican Party mailer encourages Florida Democrats to join the GOP as a way to cope with the frustration over the national party's decision to punish the state for scheduling an early presidential primary.



"I don't think that the Republicans are that in tune with the black community, because they asked Mitt Romney today what he thought of the Jena 6, and he said "I prefer the Jackson 5." - Bill Maher

Republican Shenanigans

Subject: Bush quote on God


"I trust God speaks through me. Without that I couldn't do my job." Did Bush really say that?


I love your website!




Bush denies it. Here is a link from 2005 that discusses that very quote.


But when all is said and done Bush has given Christians a bad name worldwide, eh?

Subject: Resumes are important


During the 2000 election the media concentrated more on the suit color of Al Gore rather than the resume of George Bush, or lack of it, and look where it got us.


Now, seven years later, our cable talk shows have one non-conservative, Keith Olbermann. The last cable talk show host that was hired, is Republican Joe Scarborough who replaced Imus. Joe has been ranting how journalists will protect politicians when asked and thought nothing unusual went on with Hillary Clinton asking GQ magazine to kill a negative story about her in exchange for an interview with her husband. Joe should know, the national media ignored that dead intern found in his office. 

Or that he RESIGNED from Congress, not RETIRED.

Or that he called his weekly anti-democrat rag (I have several copies) a newspaper as his MSNBC bio states: In 1999, Scarborough founded and published the award-winning newspaper The Florida Sun. In May, 2001, Joe retired from Congress to spend more time with his children and return to his law practice.


One of your viewers wrote of Scarborough: MSNBC might improve their ratings if they had some commentators with gravitas instead of punditry. The irony is that they did improve their ratings with the gravitas of Keith Olbermann.


The solution is simple. Just check their resumes!


Thank you for your factually funny website.




I tried to warn ya'll about Joe. I must admit, he's better at being a talk show host than he was as my congressman - which isn't saying much.


I still wonder why MSNBC would hire a political hack, who desktop published a weekly tabloid filled with the type of "news" and cartoons that Hillary and Janet Reno are lesbian lovers, who resigned from Congress just months after he was re-elected and soon after that, the national media didn't bother reporting on the dead aide found in his office. Is this the kind of twisted resume MSNBC wants from their employees? Was no one else available?


All kidding aside, a great part of my life has been dedicated to phototooning the resumes of our politicians since November 2000 and thank you for noticing.


And Olbermann does have an impressive resume.



NPR Politely Declines Bush Interview



The White House reached out to National Public Radio over the weekend, offering analyst Juan Williams a presidential interview to mark yesterday's 50th anniversary of school desegregation in Little Rock...Ellen Weiss, NPR's vice president for news, said she "felt strongly" that "the White House shouldn't be selecting the person." She said NPR told Bush's press secretary, Dana Perino, that "we're grateful for the opportunity to talk to the president but we wanted to determine who did the interview." When the White House said the offer could not be transferred to one of NPR's program hosts, Weiss took a pass.

Subject: Rough reception for Ahmadinejad at Columbia


Odd, don't you think, that protesters have always been denied access to public forums where the Bush Administration speaks, to the point of forcible eviction and even arrest?



What is odd is it's OK when Republicans do it.

"Vice President Cheney was recently asked who's going to win the 2008 presidential election, and he said it could go either way. So I guess he means Larry Craig" --Conan O'Brien
