Shot Off The Press
January 2005

* 9 billion dollars is missing? Just claim it as a "freedom-spreading" deduction.    (1-31)

* Ever the skeptic, I must make mention of this:
   President Bush has called Iraq's election a "resounding success."
   In an eerie coincidence, it has the same number of syllables as "Mission Accomplished."    (1-31)

* For those of you "Hearing the voice of freedom from the center of the Middle East"
   as our President does, just remember to thank all those nonexistent weapons of mass destruction.
   Without them, we'd never even be in Iraq.    (1-30)

* The election's over. Can we go home now?    (1-30)

* If the U.S. did leave Iraq right after the elections, all the money saved
   could be used to build that secret undersea oil pipeline to Texas.    (1-29)

* It all keeps coming back to MORAL VALUES. And we, as a nation, apparently have none.    (1-29)

* I've learned to despise and distrust the words "ambitious agenda."
   They're in the same category as "just peace" and "slight rape."    (1-29)

* As tax time rolls around, aren't you glad YOUR money is being used
   to pay media right-wingers to promote Bush Administration policy?
   Now, that's blasphemy at its finest.    (1-29)

* If the actual trillions of National Debt dollars were laid end-to-end,
   they'd circle the Universe roughly 4.5 times.    (1-29)

* Iraq reminds me of that old anti-drug commercial with the fried eggs:
   "This is your brain on drugs." Now it's: "This is your country on Bush."    (1-29)

* HUGE KUDOS to President Bush for staging the Iraqi elections on Super Bowl bye week.
   You can bet a lot of Iraqis will be watching the game. It's what "free" people do.    (1-28)

* According to anonymous insiders, George Bush can often be heard whistling
   Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots Are Made for Walkin' "    (1-28)

* Ted Kennedy: way to step up to the plate, dude.    Chappa-what-ddick? (1-28)

* Come on all you financial wussies: the deficit is no worse than having a credit card
   with the sky for a limit. Like, who wouldn't die to have that?    (1-28)

* I like to think of the United States as a "Pit Bull Democracy"    (1-28)

   and those results will stand."    (1-27)

* I say Michael Jackson should do some "Freedom Concerts" in Iraq to celebrate the elections,
   you know, just in case he should be found guilty and gets off with community service    (1-28)

   "You can run, but you can not hide": evil-doers now confined to just 5 continents    (1-27)

* President Bush urges Iraqis to defy terrorists and vote. That's easy for HIM to say.
   How about our fearless leader casting the first ceremonial vote right in the middle of Baghdad?    (1-27)

* Perfect timing: CONGRATULATIONS to new Secretary of State, Dr. Condoleezza Rice,
   on her confirmation during the bloodiest day of the War for U.S. troops.    (1-26)

* Apparently, we will be "spreading freedom" even if it kills us all. Now, that's resolve.    (1-26)

* From our job files: "Poll workers needed. GREAT pay, no background check, no resume,
   free Iraqi vacation (provide own insurance)..."    (1-26)

* Johnny Carson, Ed Ames, The Tomahawk Incident: "Welcome to Frontier Bris!"
   It'll never be equalled. Just like Johnny.    (1-24)

* Bush proposes faith-based deficit reduction: "God'll crunch the numbers."    (1-26)

* Invoking executive privilege, citing political capital and a mandate from the people,
   a feisty President Bush personally overturns Roe v. Wade.    (1-25)

* Okay, so the War's extremely controversial. Luckily, that's offset by how inexpensive it is.    (1-25)

* Just as Viagra might also be beneficial for combatting heart enlargement,
   Vioxx might also be "beneficial" for causing heart attacks.
   Now all they gotta do is manufacture a need.    (1-25)

* Using the most cost-effective strategy imaginable, Merck purchases the FDA    (1-25)

* How come Iraqis don't display bumper stickers and yard signs for their favorite candidates?    (1-25)

* "hubriswagger": arrogant, defiant overconfidence displayed by a high governmental official,
   especially a president    (1-24)

* Good move: Fox hires Zell "The Loosest Cannon" Miller
   to give color commentary during the Iraqi elections    (1-25)

* While I would be ecstatic for there to be peace between Israel and the Palestinians,
   I liken the whole process to "having sex and then putting on the condom."    (1-23)

* President Yushchenko, beware of your American counterpart    (1-23)

* Exit strategies are for wimps    (1-22)

* Hell, while we're over there, we might as well nail Iran. We're topplin' tyrannies like dominoes.    (1-21)

* The world has just come to an end: the first case of "Mad Beer Disease" has been confirmed.    (1-21)

* I TiVo'd the Inauguration if anyone needs it.    (1-21)

* "FOUR   MORON   MORE YEARS!"    (1-22)

* The Little Republican Cowpoke's Prayer:
   I can't wait until the whole wide world is free and democratic
   and happy and rich and believes in our American God and all the bad people are killed
   and George W. Bush gets to be President forever and ever and fixes Social Security
   and everybody wears cowboy hats and boots and liberals go away or get killed
   and there's no abortions and no gay people and no Roe v. Wade and no Evolution
   and everybody loves everybody even if they aren't as good as us and there's tax and tort reform
   and there's always oil and no global warming and lots and lots of jobs and toys and candy...Amen    (1-21)

* The way the President pursues them, my mind only hears "freedumb" and "dumbocracy."    (1-21)

* With the Inaaarghuration over, let the countdown begin.
   Each second that passes is one second closer to the end of the Bush Regime:
   "1 Barack Obama, 2 Barack Obama, 3 Barack Obama..."    (1-20)

* "mandope": a person who thinks he has a mandate, but actually doesn't.    (1-19)

* My pipe dream headline: "President dumps First Lady for Condi; Jen & Brad offer support"    (1-19)

* Gotta love that Condi: "The time for diplomacy is now," she says.
   The time for diplomacy should have been THEN, damnit.    (1-19)

* The WMD thing didn't work out, so let's try, "The world is better off without Saddam."
   We'll just keep rewriting history until we get it right. It's "absolutely the right thing to do."    (1-19)

* Does that Hersh report on Iran mean we can look forward
   to many more "Shock and Awes" and "Missions Accomplished?"    (1-18)

* Soon-to-be Secretary of State, Condi Rice, doesn't let the truth stand in her way.
   It's a match made in heaven.    (1-18)

* Iraq Exit Strategy: let the next President worry about it.    (1-18)

* How can you be critical of a lavish, extravagant 40-million-dollar Inauguration?
   How else would you expect a swaggerin' Texan to celebrate?
   As for U.S. soldiers, grieving Iraqis, and tsunami victims: let 'em eat cake.    (1-18)

* In order to calm an already jumpy nation,
   noiseless fireworks will be used during all inaugural events    (1-17)

* As the Inauguration nears, national nausea epidemic worsens    (1-16)

* Again feeling the insatiable need to invade for no reason, George Bush attacks Social Security    (1-16)

* Taking the moral low ground: if "President" Bush truly had high moral values,
   he and his top brass would be taking responsibility for an immoral war, torture, and lying to
   and deceiving the American public instead of letting it all fall on lowly Army officers,
   powerless administration officials who dared tell the truth, and a defenseless TV network.
   I would even go so far as to say, if they were truly men of God, they would ask for forgiveness and resign.
    But, I'm not bitter.    (1-16)

* The bad news: we created a holocaust in Iraq.
   The good news: at least we didn't create the killer tsunami.    (1-15)

* Dontcha' just love that Michael Jackson? Hope to see him "perform" at the Inauguration.    (1-14)

* President Bush is my rock & moral mentor:
   whenever I screw up or lie, all I have to do is refuse to admit it and continue doing it.
