    I will bet every dollar I own, that–despite THIS sentence:

    The deadly virus itself was never present in the laboratory

    tomorrow’s headlines will read “EBOLA SCARE IN THE HEARTLAND: DEADLY VIRUS NOT SECURED”

    Meanwhile, it’s Thursday nite, which calls for a few beers and the undergrad bar scene. Booyah.

    Alright John,

    Niners vs. Steelers this weekend. How about a bet.

    Niners win, you make a $5-$10 donation to MoveOn. Steelers win, I’ll make the same to…whatever you choose.

    or…think of something better?

    More Dumbass Headlines: La. Protests Hark Back to 50’s, 60’s.

    Except, they don’t, and the reporter is an idiot.

    However, the story does serve as a reminder that Martin Luther King, Jr. is dead and the poseurs trying to fill his shoes hark back to toddlers clomping around in daddy’s work boots.

    The nonprofit Families USA group

    Wouldn’t it be nice if Focus on the Family and all of their ilk actually…focused on families?

    BAGHDAD – American convoys under the protection of Blackwater USA resumed on Friday, four days after the U.S. Embassy suspended all land travel by its diplomats and other civilian officials in response to the alleged killing of civilians by the security firm.

    A top aide to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki had earlier conceded it may prove difficult for the Iraqi government to follow through on threats to expel Blackwater and other Western security contractors.

    Hearts and minds, the Bush way – fahevah!

    Punchy, did you catch this?

    The researcher, Yoshi Kawaoka, a professor of virology in the School of Veterinary Medicine, said he immediately moved the research to a Canadian lab with higher security after the NIH said the UW-Madison laboratory was not secure enough for the research.

    A Canadian lab, outside the jurisdiction(my ass) of the NIH. :-)

    WAIT! WAIT EVERYBODY!

    Wire Tapping does work in helping find Treasonous snakes.

    The FBI, working with an Alaska oil contractor, secretly taped telephone calls with Sen. Ted Stevens as part of a public corruption sting, according to people close to the investigation.

    Do you think they had a court order? Or did they really need one? After all if Senator Stevens had nothing to hide…

    You could be ‘The Other Dave’. Or do we got one of those? How about ‘Another Dave’?

    Stevens has a wide stance on business relationships, therefore there is no underlying crime.

    Don’t need one. They had Bill Allen dead to rights so he agreed to be recorded.

    D-Chance. says:

    Do the Republican candidates realize they’re actually PUSHING Hillary into the White House???

    Fred Thompson (introducing his wife): “She would make a much better first lady than Bill Clinton.”

    Mitt Romney (about his wife): “she is a much prettier first lady than Bill Clinton…”

    Way to go, boys… keep reminding the American public that if they vote for Hillary that they will also have one of the most popular presidents in recent times back in the White House and back in (or standing side-by-side with) power. That will get those voters turning Republican! After all, if you gave the public the choice of Ann Romney, Judith Nathan, Jeri Thompson, or Bill Clinton having the president’s ear 24/7, which would they choose…

    *sigh* They just don’t see their own stupidity, do they?

    asterisks = bold type?

    Shhhhhh! If they want to do it, don’t stop them.

    It’s human nature to assume the rest of the country thinks like you do. We liberals probably sometimes over-estimate the degree to which the country opposed the war. And it’s probably difficult for conservatives who can’t stand Clinton to let in how popular he was and is.

    And yes, asterisks are bold face; I discovered it the same way.

    Rick Taylor says:

    Also, when Fred Thompson said that, he was speaking to his base where it probably will help him. He probably won’t make the same joke if nominated, come the general election.
