Foley does what Bush couldn't: Unite the country!

WaPo:

There was intense anger among social conservative activists in Washington yesterday, and some called for House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) to resign.

I guess North Korea wants Bush elected

AP:

South Korea -
North Korea said Tuesday that it will conduct a nuclear test to bolster its self-defense capability amid what it calls increasing U.S. hostility toward the communist regime.

Thank God we've Moustache Man at the UN...
