Texas to Hastert ally DeLay:
You're Under Arrest.

Welllllll. This is funny.

Any wonder that Hastert's website has not been updated since he and his covorts went on a 10-day vacation for Columbus Day? What a gig!

Of course, there's no need to update if you're not doing anything.

Up with the Contract on America!!

Latest Gallup: Americans Fed Up.

And the beat goes on. In our Wild America, this will be spun somehow so the numbers actually appear to keep getting better.

Only thing lower than Bush's 39% is Hastert Congress's 29%.

Denny Hastert's Sound Fiscal Policy

I got your fiscal policy right here, baby.
    The program administered by the Small Business Administration directly lent $1.2 billion to companies that made specific arguments about how their businesses were hurt by the suicide hijackings in 2001. Figures released by the agency last week show that $245 million in SBA direct loans have been charged off or liquidated or are at least 60 days delinquent.
Wherever you stand on this, it's a very complicated mess, resulting from a complete lack of oversight, and political reaction to gigantic fiscal problems.

Are we up to Clusterfuck IV™ yet?

Who's Man Enough to Slam Kennedy Now?

Even that smug, arrogant little prick, Hannity, and his Minotaur, er, mentor, Limbaugh will have a tough time cracking wise about a man like this:
    Kennedy was walking his two dogs on the shore at 11:15 a.m. when he spotted the men cut off from shore by the rising waters. They had been fishing on a jetty that begins at the tip of the Kennedy compound.

    Tides had risen over the patchy rocks, which made it difficult to walk back to shore.

    Kennedy and a friend tried to rescue the men using a 13-foot boat but rough waters forced them back.
It takes a man with real guts to do something like that. Anyone who has ever done any serious boating knows the dangers of such an operation -- not just from the standpoint of taking a boat out over the rocks, but in such cold water.

Of course, this is Hannity's boating style. And here's Limbaugh's.

The Biggest Story in DC Today.

In spite of the fact that Karl Rove is about to be indicted (which will now bring about his resignation), and everyone is about to start talking about the naked emperor boy, there is much bigger news in Washington today.

With his name finally revealed: Welcome, Tai Shan. The newly-named baby panda at the National Zoo is the first to be born in captivity in the U.S. and survive 100 days. His name means "Peaceful Mountain." Indeed.

I'll be visiting in the spring, for sure. Oh, my GOD! Is this a cute baby, or what?
