http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090624/ap_on_re_us/us_sc_governor_where_60 Much as I love news reports exposing Republican hypocrisy and “immoral” (their words… prior to getting caught, anyway) behaviour, they’re coming at rather a quick pace. Can we slow them down so I can savour them each a bit more? *sly grin* After going AWOL for seven days, Gov. Mark Sanford admitted Wednesday that […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061109/ap_on_el_ge/eln_elections_world_view_4 One last smirking post for the night. I and the rest of the Blue-state world have earned a smirk or two, after six years of having to watch Preznit Dubya’s self-satisfied mug: But from Paris to Pakistan, politicians, analysts and ordinary citizens said Wednesday they hoped the Democratic takeover of both Houses of Congress […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061108/ap_en_mu/federline_future_7 After two years of marriage, Federline, 28, went from K-Fed to Fed-Ex on Tuesday when Spears filed for divorce in Los Angeles, citing “irreconcilable differences.” This isn’t Hannukah-worthy, but it’s still some Schadenfreudic* fun.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061108/ap_on_go_ca_st_pe/rumsfeld_resigns_21 Rumsfeld’s gone! In a week that has seen the fall of Rev. Haggard, Donald Rumsfeld and the Republican control of Congress (and the rise of the stock market in reaction), it’s feeling less like Xmas than Hannukah come early.

Army Recruiters Accused of Misleading Students to Get Them to Enlist – ABC News

http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/story?id=2626032&page=1 Suddenly I’m a lot more respectful of John Kerry’s comments. Having said that, I don’t know if stupidity can be cured by education. If these students are totally oblivious to even Fox’s spun news about the situation in Iraq, maybe their being sent there after believing all the trouble was over is just a […]

Mrs. Betty Bowers Words of Christian Concern for Ted Haggards Delicious Disgrace

http://www.bettybowers.com/nl_nov2006.html A warning to regular readers: I don’t see the jokes at Ted Haggard’s expense growing old anytime soon. If anything, they’re getting more and more enjoyable.
