More on Rush...on Drugs

Big surprise here, ha, ha, ha: two-faced 'Rush's drug use no joking matter'. Excellent work by Joe Conason, writing in The New York Observer.


"Fair and Ignorant"

Helen Thomas says: 'No wonder Bush doesn't connect with the rest of the country.'

The guy's practically proud to be an ignoramus.


Laughing at the News

Which we really need to do once in awhile...

"In a surprising move, Rush Limbaugh admitted he is addicted to painkillers and is entering rehab again, to 'break the hold this highly addictive medication has on me.' He also accepted full responsibility for his problems, somehow resisting the natural urge to blame it all on 'femi-nazis,' Bill Clinton and the 'liberal media.'" - Patrick M. Rhody

"The Food and Drug Administration is considering lifting its ban on silicone breast implants. While major scientific studies have never proven that silicone-gel implants cause serious diseases, there is no denying that they played a key role in creating the damaging careers of Pamela Anderson and Anna Nicole Smith." - Jacob Novak

While the Bush Daughters are Partying in Texas

Widely reported story today, below from The Mirror in the UK.


By Mark Ellis

American soldiers are committing suicide in record numbers as their deployment in Iraq takes its toll, it was revealed yesterday.

Eleven soldiers and three Marines have killed themselves in seven months, double the average for the military.

And the Army has sent home 478 soldiers for mental health problems.

Army chiefs sent a mental health team to Iraq last month to investigate.

Lt Col Elspeth Cameron Ritchie, a US army psychiatrist, said: "The team are looking at the stresses on the troops, how well they are coping and how well the basic principles of battlefield psychiatry are working."

Health experts say harsh and dangerous living conditions and long deployments can worsen depression.

Meanwhile two US soldiers were killed in attacks, bringing to 96 the number killed since May.

One died in Baiji, 110 miles north of Baghdad, when his armoured car hit a landmine. The other was killed by a rocket grenade in Tikrit.


Here's how Rush Limbaugh might spin it...

...if Bill Clinton were an addict!

Absolutely brilliant, insightful piece from today's St. Louis Post-Dispatch by Bill McClellan.

Pass the URL on to friends, tell everyone you know. Let's not let this arrogant, lying, blowhard dirtbag shill for the Republicans get away with blaming "the addiction" for the reality of his just being a piece of hateful, greedy, divisive, drug-addicted human garbage.

More on Arnold

Wow, what a coincidence! It wasn't just me.

See my comments from Saturday, 10/11 (right before this entry), on Jay Leno's persistent and gleeful ass-kissing of Governor-elect Arnie.

Now, enjoy Martin Knelman's column, Jay Leno's dangerous liaison with California's new governor, from today's Toronto Star!
