April 10 News Update

Scooter Libby says President Bush leaked classified information to bolster support for War in Iraq. Commander-in-Chief now Leaker-in-Chief?

Didn't the President once say he would fire anyone who leaked classified information? Didn't really mean it. Besides, the White House says it's not classified if the President says it's not classified. Just as illegal eavesdropping is not illegal if the President says it's not illegal. And war is peace.

Vermont Democrats urge Congress to begin impeachment proceedings against Bush. Are they crazy? Don't they know who's the Vice President?

Know why Tom DeLay avoided service in Vietnam? Said there were so many minority volunteers, there was no room for white guys!

New York Times lead story headline on Friday: "Senate Leaders Announce a Deal on Immigration." Oops.

Massive demonstrations planned for Monday to show support for immigration reform. Turnout questionable if word gets out that INS will be checking for green cards.

Will reform include a provision that you don't have to press #1 on the telephone to speak English in the United States, an ostensibly English-speaking country?

Scientists think they may have found the "missing link."

Proponents of intelligent design want to know when it went missing.

Recently discovered long-lost documents suggest Jesus Christ asked Judas to betray him so he could become a martyr. Historians now looking into reports that Julius Caesar asked Brutus to stab him so he could become immortalized in crossword puzzles forever with the words, "Et tu, Brutus."

New York Post embroiled in scandal over Page Six gossip pages. What? Can't believe what you read in the New York Post? If you can't trust the Post, who can you trust?

Never mind.

Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney apologizes for striking a Capitol Cop who didn't recognize her because she wasn't wearing her ID pin and then tried to stop her from entering the Capitol. Race card trumped.
