Still here. I've gotten emails saying some of the yahoo links don't work, and that the site is still taking a long time to load up. Crap. Blogger #ucks up a lot of links on a regular basis. Usually I can catch it during the posting process, but sometimes it doesn't warn me that it's cut off the ends. As far as it taking so long, ???? I don't know what else to do but cut back on the pics. If anyone has any other ideas, let me know. In very basic terms, please!
Nine billion dollars of taxpayer money missing in Iraq
The Coalition Provisional Authority - formerly run by Paul Bremer, who received a Presidential Medal of Freedom last month - has lost $9,000,000,000 in funds due to "frauds, corruption and other misbehavior."
Fun fact: one of the main benefactors of Iraq funds was VP Dick Cheney's "former" company Halliburton, which was paid about $1.7 billion dollars.
Fun fact 2: your new secretary of state, Condoliar Rice, was supposedly in charge of the CPA.
Fun fact 3: The voting Sunday did not degenerate into a violent bloodbath, so it was all worth it.

Dick dresses like homeless, drunken stevedore for death-camp liberation ceremonies
Other leaders at the event in Poland on Thursday marking the 60th anniversary of the death camp's liberation, such as French President Jacques Chirac and Russian President Vladimir Putin, wore dark, formal overcoats and dress shoes or boots.
"The vice president, however, was dressed in the kind of attire one typically wears to operate a snow blower," the Washington Post's fashion writer wrote.
Class. Dignitude. Fucktard.

adler taken aback by revelations about SpongeBob’s insidious pro-homosexual agenda
"I couldn’t agree more," Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) said. "We’ve seen this before with Tinky Winky, the allegedly gay Teletubby. Simply put, kids’ cartoons are no longer safe for kids – at least if we want them to develop into bigoted, narrow-minded adults."Heh!

Congressional Hispanic caucus has just given the UFIA to Gonzales
During the past four years, the CHC has proudly endorsed many judicial and executive branch nominees selected by [the smirking a-hole]. Unfortunately, Mr. Gonzales proved unwilling to discuss important issues facing the Latino community and refused to meet with the CHC, despite the fact that he initially indicated that he would welcome the chance to gain the approval of the 21 member CHC.
We feel we have no choice but to tell him to fuck off.
OK, that last part was mine, but you get the drift.

The Parents Television Council, a

et another paid Bush mouthpiece comes to light
"Did I violate journalistic ethics by not disclosing it?" Gallagher, channelling Donald Rumsfeld, said yesterday. "I don't know. You tell me."
She said she would have "been happy to tell anyone who called me" about the contract but that "frankly, it never occurred to me" to disclose it.
Oh - well, that makes it OK then.

Senate confirms Rice as secretary of state, McCain as pathetic douchebag
Liar gets the most "no" votes since World War II.
Twelve Democrats and independent James Jeffords of Vermont voted against the confirmation of Condoliar Rice today, saying she lied in the run-up to the war in Iraq.
In the spirit of partisan bootlicking, gpuke towelboy and formerly respected senator John McCain called the Dems sore losers who were still "bitter over the outcome of the election."
Well, fuck you too.
Senator/meat puppet McCain mentally prepares himself
for another reach-around by smirking monkey.

‘Why promote failure?’
In another futile, too-little-too-late moment, Democratic Senators today will debate Emperor Snippy's nomination of Condoliar Rice as secretary of state, and "rake his Iraq war policy over the coals."
Fun fact: the testicles, which Dems bought by the case from Costco especially for today, have already expired.
Fun fact 2: "the White House had been confident that Rice would be approved last week, and State Department officials were alerted to show up Friday morning to greet her with smiles and applause." Puke.

You're either with us or against us, Poutine!*
Statesman and uniter George Dumbass Bush wasn't trying to strong-arm Canadians on missile defence in a meeting last month with their Prime Minister, US officials had to explain on Monday.
In the meeting, Bush "waved off attempts to explain how contentious the issue is" and "leaned across the table and said: 'I'm not taking this position, but some future president is going to say: Why are we paying to defend Canada.'"
Meanwhile, some future prime minister is wondering if he's going to have to defend Canada from the US.
The WH toadies were already spinning. "The prime minister needs to look like he's not caving to Bush on this and they need Bush to look like a jerk," said a 'US lobbyist.'
Well, THAT part ought to be easy enough.
*A past example of Bush building relationships with our northern neighbor.

ush's 300 billion-dollar boondoggle
"A record amount that shatters initial estimates."
The Bushies have asked for another $80 billion in new funding for their Iraqi fiasco, on top of the $25 billion in emergency spending already approved.
Defense analyst John Pike said the Pentagon might need even more money later this year "because
everything is so very, very fucked up we just don't know the rate at which the insurgency will grow or subside."
Oh, and the misadministration is also considering including $1 billion to $2 billion to construct a new US embassy complex in Baghdad, presumably to protect against thrown flowers.
In a related story, the boy king, after saying he would honor an Iraqi request to withdraw, now says the US will keep 120,000 troops in Iraq for next 2 years.
"It's yore money!"
- Preznit Privilege.

Winter storm warning!

Winds NE at 5 to 10 mph. 8 to 12 inches of snow expected. Hope you stocked up on soup, milk and candles, you poor bastards!
Tonight: Snow, snow, snow. Winds will increase late. Low 17F. NNE winds at 10 to 20 mph, increasing to 25 to 35 mph. 4 to 7 more inches of snow expected.

he emperor of vulgarity
What an absolutely bitchy article. I love it -
The little Corsican corporal had a few decent victories to his escutcheon. Lodi, Marengo, that sort of thing. Not so this strutting Texan mountebank, with his chimpanzee smirk and his born-again banalities delivered in that constipated syntax that sounds the way cold cheeseburgers look, and his grinning plastic wife, and his scheming junta of neo-con spivs, shamans, flatterers and armchair warmongers, and his sinuous evasions and his brazen lies, and his sleight of hand theft from the American poor, and his rape of the environment, and his lethal conviction that the world must submit to his Pax Americana or be bombed into charcoal.
Difficult to know what was more repellent: the estimated $US40 million cost of this jamboree (most of it stumped up by Republican fat-cats buying future presidential favours), or the sheer crassness of its excess when American boys are dying in the quagmire of Bush's very own Iraq war...
