12/16   Sadam Hussein is an actor and the US government is planning to
        plant WMD in Iraq:
        \_ Nothing on the onion says anything like that.  What in Sam Hill
           are you talkin' about, boy?

        "We have tried spending money. We are spending more than we have ever
        spent before and it does not work. And I have just one interest, and
        now if I am wrong somebody else can have my job. I want to see this
        country prosper. I want to see people get a job. I want to see people
        get enough to eat. We have never made good on our promises. I say after

11/4    Regardless of the outcome, I'm very proud of all the Americans
        who voted today. We've come a long way and it's amazing that
        women & black men actually have a chance of winning. Something
        like this was unthinkable in the 60s. We've come a long way.
        \_ not really.  they all suported the bailout which continues to come
           pouring out of our pockets.  maybe it was necessary to win the

11/1    SCHWARZENEGGER: [W]hen Americans go into that voting booth on Tuesday,
        I hope that you will think about this. If you were in a POW cell, with
        the threat and danger and torture as part of the daily life, who would
        you want in that cell with you?
        AUDIENCE: John McCain!

8/11    Analysis: roots of conflict between Georgia and Russia
        \_ This is an excellent insight. Thank you.
        \_ this is pretty straightforward actually:
           - s. ossetia is de facto independent and allied with Russia
           - georgia takes s. ossetia by force, pokes Russian Bear in eye

        Analysis: US now winning Iraq war that seemed lost
        \_ So move the goalposts enough and eventually you can claim
           victory and bug the fuck out.  That's not winning.
           What exactly was won again?
           \_ Huh?  What goalposts are you talking about?

7/4     Jesse Helms is dead. Too bad he didn't die in pain: maybe
        God is Conservative afterall. At least he gave America a good
        present on this 231st birthday of ours.
                          \_ 232nd. And thanks for showing the example of all
                             that is wrong with politics today.

6/12    Barack Obama's Birth Certificate
        Not really that interesting, except that I didn't know that his full
        name is "Brack Hussein Obama II" (The Revenge)
        \_ This obsession of yours is beginning to look unhealthy.

6/6     Pure comedy as freepers react to Obama's fist bump with his wife:
        "History has shown repeatedly, when Whites set up new countries and
        then give the control to the blacks, or any non-White race, it will
        soon collapse into another third world catastrophe."

4/8     Yes, the Iraqi army kicked Al-Sadr's ass

        \_ Now there's a dependable source.  Obviously I'm just some MSM
           reading, what's the word -- oh yeah, sheeple.

3/10    Exhaustive Pentagon review finds no Saddam/Al Qaeda link:
        "An exhaustive review of more than 600,000 Iraqi documents that were
        captured after the 2003 U.S. invasion has found no evidence that
        Saddam Hussein's regime had any operational links with Osama bin
        Laden's al Qaida terrorist network."

3/1     holy shit Hillary Clinton is on Saturday Night Live! She must
        be desperate or something. I feel sorry for her.
        \_ Well yeah, her campaign was dead weeks ago.  Hail Mary!
        \_ Appearing on the Arsenio Hall Show worked for Bill.
           \_ Arsenio Hall Show circa 1992 wasn't nearly as bad (and unwatched)
              as the current SNL season.

New Negative Campaign Ads Blast Voters Directly WASHINGTON, DCIn the latest round of political mudslinging, both John Kerrys and George W. Bushs election committees have replaced ads that focus on their opponents shortcomings with ads that personally insult the voting public. Friend Buys Computer Just Like That KANSAS CITY, MOAccount executive Jeremy Trask, 33, entered a local Best Buy Sunday, shopped for approximately 20 minutes, and bought a brand-new laptop computer right off the shelf, like it was a bag of pretzels, Trasks friend Paul Cheng said Monday. Boland of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sacramento announced Monday that, although he remains a devoted servant of God and the Catholic Church, he has become tired of the same old church scene. Study: Owning A Boat Not Worth It YONKERS, NYAccording to a study published in the April issue of Boating Magazine , owning a boat is not even close to worth it. Our study proved conclusively that boat-ownership is primarily an inconvenience and a monetary black hole, editor Roger Bernbaum said. We found little to no reason to keep that thing sitting in a shed all winter just so you can tow it to the lake and pay outrageous docking fees three weekends a year. Itd be much more cost-efficient to don a yachting cap and hang out at the dockhouse. The May issue of Boating promises to explore the financial viability of seaside vacation homes. What Grieving Widow Needs Is A Day At The Spa PACIFIC PALISADES, CANow that her husband Harvey has been laid to rest and all the visiting relatives have left, what grieving widow Judith Blauser, 46, really needs is a day at the spa, friend Carrie Thomas reported Tuesday. I know that seeing poor Harvey there in the casket reminded me how long its been since I treated myself to a full-body seaweed wrap. Thomas suggested that Blauser fly to Palm Desert for a volcanic sand bath immediately following the reading of the will. Man Nods His Way To The Top BOSTONUsing his unparalleled ability to nod after his superiors speak, Thomas J. Mieritz, 39, rose to the level of vice-president at Fidelity Investments Monday. I knew Mieritz was the man for the job the instant I started talking. He was ready to get on board with every one of my proposed mutual-fund investment initiatives, Fidelity chairman Edward C. I thought, Now, theres a man who makes smart decisions without a lot of hullabaloo. Johnson added that, if Mieritz can master boot-licking, buck-passing, and myopic self-satisfaction, hell probably run the company one day. Room Scanned For Something To Sell On eBay ALBANY, CAApplying tape to the last package in a 12-item round of eBay sales, Brandon Vye scanned his bedroom for anything else he could auction off online. After listing a misshapen clay bowl he made in a high-school ceramics class, Vye decided to head out to the yard to search for eBay-able stuff there. Zambia Tired Of Being Mentioned In News Of The Weird Section LUSAKA, ZAMBIAZambian president HE Levy P. Mwanawasa publicly chastised Reuters and 10 other news organizations Monday for featuring Zambia in their news of the weird sections. Zambia has a rich cultural history well beyond the man who can swallow razor blades, Mwanawasa said. Either feature something about Zambia besides dodecatuplets, or dont feature Zambia at all. Interestingly, in addition to being the Zambian leader, Mwanawasa is also the proud owner of the worlds longest soda-can pull-tab chain.
