God, it's depressing to listen to NPR. They actually reported on the Mexican election this morning while not even giving a he-said/she-said on vote fraud.
I'm starting to think we need a Department of What's Wrong With These People?! Read below the fold...
And by "our freedoms" I mean those freedoms that the Constitution gives all of us, as American citizens.

The Pakistani army announces it will not go after Osama, as long as he remains a mellow dude.
If he is in Pakistan, bin Laden "would not be taken into custody," Major General Shaukat Sultan Khan told ABC News in a telephone interview, "as long as one is being like a peaceful citizen."
Pakistan is also declaring the border area with Afghanistan a permanent party zone: Read below the fold...
it's not Bill Travis hollering from the top of an adobe wall this time and leftist Manuel Lopez Obrador & Co. aren't surrounded by enemies on all sides, running low on powder, and being deserted by their countrymen. Hmm. Maybe this time, Mexico's people can win. Read below the fold...
One last piece of advice: Do listen to your mother when she tells you to keep your hands off your face.
"Picking is not a good idea," [Alexa Boer Kimball, director of Harvard University's Clinical Unit for Research Trials in Skin] said. "Almost always, you're making it worse."

Here's the front page coverage of the latest ranting from our Bedwetter in Chief. Look at the links under the headline:
So, what's the deal with this "Response to the White House" link? What's this "Third Way" bit?

I wrote the following lyrics for my sister. I hope she'll find a way to put them to music.

Dammit, I just read that a solution of bicarbonate of soda would have killed the mildew on my pumpkin leaves.

Rapture Index. So, why did leadership close down one point?
The lack of resolve over Iran's nuclear program has downgraded this category.
Ah, yes. We haven't gone the Clusterfuck-alypse Now route with Iran. Yet. And The Base doesn't want to wait.
Remember, in the crazy mind of The Base, anything that brings the end of the world closer is good.
That's why they keep voting for Bush. Got it? Read below the fold...
