Your call is very important to us…

Whenever I hear that message I often come to the same conclusion. If my call really was important then they would increase their service staff so I could speak to a human being right away. Instead you wait. You wait while your children fight. You wait while someone rings the doorbell. You wait all the way through an episode of some program you'd never watch on TV except for the fact that you are sitting around waiting. Of course if you finally get service of some sort it ends up being no better than a voice menu system that doesn't have any options you want.

The Problem With Bush - No Comic Can Imitate Him

I was reading the news feeds as I sometimes do and after reading an article entitled Bush Defends Calling DeLay Not Guilty I just started laughing out loud. Then it hit me. I have not seen a single comic do a funny imitation of George Bush. I've seen a few body doubles, but they were just NOT funny. Jon Stewart does a lame Bush satire at best. Yet he is hilariously funny. Why? Because he plays off of news footage of George Bush just being himself.

Of Course! Bush's Next (Media) War Will Be Against Mexico

Why didn't I realize this before? All the Bush administration really has been doing is catering to his buddies in Texas. I knew that from the first line dance at the inauguration ball. Did they have a mechanical bull in there? I can't remember. So now that we've taken back the oil "stole" from Texas oil companies isn't it time to remember the Alamo? This article in the Washington Post is just the beginning.

Stop The Torture!

You probably think I am writing about the fact that our Vice President seems to be in favor of torture. But I'm not. Sure it is obvious that Dick has watched too many episodes of "24" and it is obvious he should be punished. He did, after all, swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States and uphold its laws. But for most of the politicians in our government "swearing-in" is just a quaint ceremony.


Judge Dread

So what have we learned about Alito so far? According to the Washington Post he did join the ROTC, but it was to avoid serving in Viet Nam. In other words, at best he is a chicken-hawk wanna-be. The record of Scalito, as he is called, raises some serious questions about whether we want this guy deciding the law of the land.
