Democrat posse in House of Reps pass all of the 911 Commission's recommendations, except for one . . . pinning a tail on Dick Cheney!
What the heck is a "non-binding resolution"? You got some splaining to do! Nobody takes a "non-binding resolution" seriously! Isn't that what you use when you fake bondage during sex? A non-binding resolution?
Yesterday, one wise old man at The State Dept. suggested that the Iraqi people should actually vote on whether they want
Sympathetic Republican lobbyists have been sending Scooter Libby gifts during his perjury and obstruction of justice trial! These goodies include: soap-on-a-rope, thong underwear, and lots of KY Jelly products! __
Bill and Hillary Clinton, now there's a pair! How'd you like to wake up to that every morning? Boy, there's NO prize! On either side of the bed!
The insiders say Hillary will never apologize for voting for the war! Hell, she won't even apologize for staying married to Billyboy!
To put it mildly, like most couples, the

Lindsay Lohan had her appendix, and driver's license removed!
Brittany Spears and that Federline boob didn't really get a divorce! K-Fed now says: "It's just a phased withdrawal!"
Marilyn Manson & wifey are getting a divorce! I wonder which made her crazier: Was it the boatload of casual gay sex, or the fact that he had a big "L" on his forehead?
New study says: Women are attracted to a chemical in a man's sweat! Not only does this apply to cheerleaders and the captain of the football team, it's probably why your wife waits so long to change the sheets! __
Here's a bonus: A new short story for reading so much of my Almanack!
A Drink with the Candidates!
So . . . an icy blonde, a Hispanic, an elf from
All are quite wary, as this is the first time they've been in the same room. Slowly, all notice: hanging behind the bar is a huge oil painting of Jeb Bush. It has a moustache and eyeglasses drawn on the face. Everybody smiles!
The bartender says "What'll it be?" The angry
They grew quiet, and notice a man in a black suit stroll to the door and depart the premises. New guy Barak asks the Huckabuck who that was. As a group, including the bartender, they answer: "The man from Diebold!" They stand respectful and quietly. A visible sigh of relief escapes them.
The bartender serves everybody the same thing: Coca-Cola, with a small shot of Pepto Bismol as a back up! No one touches their drink, until the icy blonde raises her glass and says: "Thank God, Schwarzenegger can't run for president!" Various "amens" and "hallelujahs" come from everybody.
Spontaneously, the Huckabuck raises his glass and proposes a toast: "To all the informed voters!" The balding New Yorker says: "What have they got to do with it?" Once again, everybody breaks up, and laughs.
When the bartender says the tab is $85, the Mormon says: "Is that in soft money or hard?" Now, everybody is bent over laughing.
Working to get in the spirit of things, the angry
The icy blonde, trying too hard to be one of the guys yells: "Screw Al Gore!" The rest receive this hesitantly, but can't contain themselves, and one by one, bust up laughing. The icy blonde says: "Hey, that was a joke!"
Next, Barak says: "Has anyone seen that Joe Biden? He's sooo clean!" All are now starting to fall down from laughing so hard!
The phone on the bar rings, all get quiet. The bartender answers, listens, then holds the phone to his chest and yells loudly: "Anybody from the online magazine, TheCheers.org here?" The icy blonde motions all to hush. "Shhh!"
Unnoticed at a back corner table until now, a silver haired guy in red shoes, slowly rises, then limps to take the phone, and turns away for some privacy.
Now subdued, each attempts to straighten themselves. The angry

That’s my question! Do you hate to be tickled? Some people do. I am not one of those people. Do you like to tickle your lover? I do. It’s scientific name is : gargalesis!
After a good night at a comedy show, isn’t it amazing how hard you laughed then, but the next day, you can’t recall the name, or place the face? (Geez, that babe with the tight skirt? Or that guy with those red shoes? Or the guy in the robe that did that silly rap parody?) Those are the folks this weird treatise is all about.
