Hilarity from Wonkette:

Cheney Having Heart Surgery Tomorrow, Bush Will Briefly Be 'President':

"Last Saturday doctors performed surgery on George Bush’s asshole, and this Saturday they’ll do it again! But this time, it’s the other asshole, Dick Cheney. They are going to take apart his robotic pig heart and replace the core reactor."

Apparently Bush comes from a long line of assholes:

BBC - Radio 4 Document - Greenham's Hidden Secret:

"The coup was aimed at toppling President Franklin D Roosevelt with the help of half-a-million war veterans. The plotters, who were alleged to involve some of the most famous families in America, (owners of Heinz, Birds Eye, Goodtea, Maxwell Hse & George Bush’s Grandfather, Prescott) believed that their country should adopt the policies of Hitler and Mussolini to beat the great depression.
Mike Thomson investigates why so little is known about this biggest ever peacetime threat to American democracy."

Speaking of Bushholes....


20 billion in arms given to the people who attacked us on 9/11?!? Isn't this the kind of bullshit that got us in trouble to start with? Remember all those Kurds Saddam gassed back in the 80s... the gassing Shrub used for his case to occupy Iraq?

Didn't Rumsfeld and the boys sell Saddam those chemical weapons?

Round and round and round we go.

ScienceDaily: Report: Bush sets $20b Saudi arms deal:

"WASHINGTON, July 28 (UPI) -- The Bush administration plans to ask Congress to approve arms sales to Saudi Arabia and its neighbors that may eventually total $20 billion."

Duuuuude. If you don't want prison riots you'll let the prisoners take care of their own business.

Going Blind Justice :

"JULY 25--In a verdict that could chill lonely inmates everywhere, a jury today convicted a Florida inmate for masturbating in the privacy of his Ft. Lauderdale cell. After deliberating for only 45 minutes, a Broward County panel found Terry Lee Alexander, 20, guilty of indecent exposure for an episode last November. According to investigators, a female guard--who was monitoring Alexander's cell from a jail control room--spotted Alexander pleasuring himself while seated on his bunk. At the time, he was jailed on auto theft and gun raps (Alexander subsequently pleaded guilty to the felony raps and was sentenced to ten years in prison). Alexander, pictured in the below mug shot, was sentenced to 60 days in custody for today's indecent exposure conviction, though the time will be served concurrently with his lengthier sentence. No, you'll get no jokes from us about the penal system, doing 'hard time,' Alexander behaving like a jerk, or how his lawyer failed to get him off. (3 pages)"

Science to save the day.

New Bacterium Discovered in Yellowstone:

"The wonderland known as Yellowstone National Park has yielded a new marvel — an unusual bacterium that converts light to energy.

The discovery was made in a hot spring at the park where colorful mats of microbes drift in the warmth.

'This thing was just bizarre,' David M. Ward, a professor of microbial studies at Montana State University, said of the bacterium.

And just because I'm finally reading Dixie Lullaby here's some Allman Brothers.
