http://news.yahoo.com/s/eonline/20081002/en_celeb_eo/32091;_ylt=AobfNNVX0MuLwMeRykTtj3JY24cA An unpixellated penile revelation on last week’s Survivor episode has caused much frothing at the mouth amongst American puritans. As usual, this is a tempest in a teacup and thoroughly un-newsworthy, though it did provide this fabulous quote: “The number of ‘fleeting’ penises we expect to see on broadcast television is zero.”

Abraham Lincoln – Wikiquote

http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Abraham_Lincoln Dear George W. Bush, It is now for them to demonstrate to the world that those who can fairly carry an election can also suppress a rebellion; that ballots are the rightful and peaceful successors of bullets; and that when ballots have fairly and constitutionally decided, there can be no successful appeal back to […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071223/ap_on_an/mortgage_crisis_4;_ylt=AqoF6PEcw.Dhgi6aibG7AQAE1vAI After a slow and stumbling start, official Washington is scrambling to try to prevent the unfolding mortgage crisis from pushing the country into recession during an election year. There is a strong feeling, though, that the government will need to do more to avert a financial disaster. Congratulations, George W. Bush! An unwinnable war […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070827/ap_on_go_ca_st_pe/gonzales_resigns_47;_ylt=AsstU4gw9sSgcOllMpnNU9EE1vAI Alberto Gonzales, the nation’s first Hispanic attorney general, announced his resignation Monday, driven from office after a wrenching standoff with congressional critics over his honesty and competence. Wow. In addition to leaving, the rats are also being thrown from the sinking ship. How soon before The Decider is left by his lonesome, as a […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070404/ap_on_go_pr_wh/bush_20 President Bush denounced “irresponsible” Democrats on Tuesday for going on spring break without approving money for the Iraq war with no strings. Poor George – prepositions always trip him up. Irresponsible is going on spring break after approving money for the Iraq war with no strings, not without. And I’m not sure I want […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070329/ap_on_go_ca_st_pe/fired_prosecutors_270 Eight federal prosecutors were fired last year because they did not sufficiently support President Bush’s priorities, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales’ former chief of staff says in remarks prepared for delivery to Congress on Thursday. Separately, the Justice Department admitted Wednesday it gave senators inaccurate information about the firings and presidential political adviser Karl Rove’s […]

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/14/washington/14mistakes.html?ex=1331524800&en=034d573555d97e29&ei=5088&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss The New York Times details a history of the phrase, “mistakes were made”, which has seen some heavy use in Washington since the era of Tricky Dick the First.
