760,000 jobless - and counting - denied aid
The misadministration fiddles while the country burns.
“Despite his repeated expressions of concern for the unemployed, President Bush has so far ignored the plight of three-quarters of a million individuals who have gone without unemployment aid," said Isaac Shapiro of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

"Gay marriage!" yelped sweaty WH spokes-hamster Scott McClellan. "9/11!"

The fix is in
Jebus. If THIS doesn't look sleazy and underhanded, I don't know what does.

The Bush family lawyer has been hired to conduct an internal probe of Halliburton's involvement in corrupt payments made in Nigeria at a time when Dick 'Chicanery' Cheney was CEO of the company.

Lawyer James Doty has very close ties to the Bush family and the misadministration, and has represented both Drinky McDumbass and his father, Bush-the-only-slightly-smarter. Last year he was even on the 'short list' of candidates to replace Harvey Pitt as chairman of the SEC, and at one point was alleged to have vigorously serviced talc-ed, wrinkly matriarch Barbara Bush while numbnut-the-elder was off on one of his week-long binges.

Public interest activists have questioned the independence of the Doty investigation. "It's obvious that a firm that already has had a long-standing, close relationship with both the company and top members of the administration is incapable of independently investigating a case that is as complicated and potentially controversial as this one," said Charlie Cray, director of the Center for Corporate Policy in Washington, D.C. "Unscrupulous punk bastards."
