The Musical Fruit

At least they're not pretending anymore. A FOX pundit is hired as Bush's spokesperson. Not really a career move by Tony, more like a job title change.

FOX in the hen house or Snow Job:
"President Bush on Wednesday announced Fox News anchor and analyst Tony Snow as his new White House press secretary."
Red rover, red rover, send an indictment of Carl Rove right over:

CIA Leak Prosecutor Goes to Grand Jury:
"WASHINGTON - Special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald early Wednesday went before a federal grand jury looking into the leak of the identity of undercover CIA officer Valerie Plame.

It is believed to be only the second session the prosecutor has had with the grand jury which is examining questions left unanswered in the Plame affair. The only other time Fitzgerald was seen going before the new panel was Dec. 7."
Great read on how to get our point across.

"I Don't Agree that Bush is God":
"Another Sunday of the talking head circus is past, where the 101st Fighting Keyboardists can bravely take up arms against an army of straw men who hate America. Yes, with extreme valor do they shoot down those who don't want to listen in on Al Queda, lob grenades at isolationists, or skewer the liberals who don't believe Iraqis deserve freedom.

Yes, week in and week out Republicans caricature Democratic positions to the point of ridiculousness, and then blow them over with a gust of hot air. Why? Because it works! The listener tends to have an instinctive revulsion to the silly position, and the person on the other side of the debate frequently is forced to dissociate himself from the strawman argument, to clarify his real position--leaving precious little time to discuss the merits of his position. Moreover, the Republican version of his argument is neat, clean and--most of all--memorable.

How do liberals respond? Why, with truth and logic of course. And they usually prevail, three hours after the show has gone off the air. "
Why are people trying to take all the fun out of beans? I mean, what's the purpose here. Why do Venezuelans hate comedy so? What are little kids and grown men gonna laugh at now. This world is going to shit.

Study shows secret to gas-free beans:
"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two strains of bacteria are the key to making beans flatulence-free, Venezuelan researchers reported on Tuesday."
