  • Aziz: I want home in UK

    Britain won't want him, despite what the BBC will say.

    Perhaps we could send him to the Barbra Streisand compound near Los Angeles where he could be secretly interviewed by Peter Jennings. Might as well make him feel at home while he spills his guts.

    Ever notice how much he looks like Henry Kissinger?

    "The way to do it is to get mad, to get angry, to get active, to get out there and get off your ‘.‘.‘. " he said to prolonged cheers, without completing the thought. "Get going."

    John, maybe if you borrowed an Iraqi Freedom vet's medals and threw them over the White House fence you could get some Democrats off of their `.`.`.

    Oh, never mind, you already did that in the 60s, and it didn't work then, either.

    What a Lurch-like martinet.

    Notice how Kim Jong Il's wierd Don King-ish hairstyle has become even more cartoonish? (like a Looney Tunes character saying "YIKES!")

    Maybe he's been watching the war on FOX, and knows he's probably next.
  • WHAT ELSE IS CNN HIDING?

    CNN can no longer claim journalistic impartiality, or have any credibility whatsoever in other global venues. Jordan should have closed the office in Baghdad and reported the atrocities as soon as possible thereafter. "Freedom of the press" indeed...

    It is distressing to learn that CNN collaborated with Saddam Hussein in his brutality. They have the blood of thousands on their hands.
  • Bush honors Carter, other Nobel laureates at White House -

    Bush shows considerable character and class by allowing Jimmy Carter the honor of an Oval Office visit.

    Carter would have shown considerable character and class had he declined the Nobel Prize, particularly after the head of the Nobel Committee made it clear that they were only using Carter to symbolically slap George Bush.

    As Darrell Hammond said in the SNL spoof, Dona-who?'s audience is so low that it's within the margin of error of the ratings service . . . which means that there's no guarantee that anyone is watching the show.

    Goodbye Phil.

    Ya gotta understand...if the election doesn't turn out her way, it's not because the voters rejected her ideas. No, it's that her party was inarticulate. What a twit.
  • Iowa Wins! Banks for Heisman!

    Pardon my exuberance. I was suffering from Budweiser poisoning. I have now fully recovered.

    I agree with you about Kinsbury; he's incredible. Why is he not in the top 6 in the Heisman Watch? And why should the Heisman be a "Lifetime Achievement Award" (if given to Dorsey?)

    The unheralded but mighty Iowa Hawkeyes won big again today, while teams ahead of them in the standings and the BCS struggled. What will it take for Iowa to earn recognition for it's remarkable accomplishments this season?

    They will at least share a portion of the Big Ten Championship; this is their first undefeated run in the Big Ten since Calvin Coolidge was president; yet they might still be screwed out of a BCS bid. They're 11-1, guys!

    C'mon, all you media-types! Break out of the mold. Reward the teams that play to achieve their status.

    And if you don't think Brad Banks deserves a shot at the Heisman, you ain't that knowledgable about College Ball.

    Kirk Ferentz for Coach of the Year!

  • Carter: U.S. perceived as 'too arrogant'

    People around the world perceive the United States as "too arrogant" and "too self-centered" . . . former President Jimmy Carter said in an interview to air Friday.

    Ok, Jimmy...who are these "people" to which you refer?

    . . . "I think they feel that we don't really care about them, which is quite often true."

    Ahh, that's the problem...we just don't care about them. Only Carter, Clinton, et al are qualified to care.

    He added, "They all know -- the ones that are educated -- that among the developed, industrialized nations on earth, the United States is at the bottom . . .in providing humanitarian aid for peace and for human rights and for housing and for health and education."

    "The ones that are educated.."? What a snob.

    Carter . . .also noted that the United States gives only one one-thousandth of its gross national product for international assistance, while the average European country gives four times as much. "For every time an American gives a dollar, a citizen of Norway gives $17," he said.

    Jimmy, tell me about Norway's version of the Marshall Plan.

    "Foreign aid in this country has a bad name, but in other countries, it's a right thing for the government to do. And that's where we at the Carter Center quite often have to turn."

    Where would the world be without the Carter Center?

    Carter also said that recent admissions by North Korean officials that they have pushed ahead with developing nuclear capability came as a surprise to him.

    A surprise?

    However, Carter said he does not believe the North Koreans actually have, or want to build, nuclear weapons.

    What a gullible ass.

    "My belief is ... that it is primarily a kind of a threat to bring attention to themselves as a negotiating ploy," said Carter. . .

    What a stupid, gullible ass.

    "It was a serious mistake on their part, and from every information that I have, the North Koreans would like to get out of this problem and have some genuine negotiations with our country and others."

    What a stupid, naive, gullible ass.

    Carter also expressed concern about the contest for control of Israel's governing Likud party. . .which he characterized as "each one trying to outdo the other about how they can be most abusive toward the Palestinians and avoid any relations of a negotiating nature with [Palestinian leader Yasser] Arafat."

    Negotiating nature? With Arafat?! What would you negotiate, Jimmy -- that he reduce his suicide bombings by 20%?

    What a stupid, naive, dangerous, gullible ass!

  • Gore undecided on new presidential bid

    Gore acts like he's undecided. He isn't. He's running and running hard...Good God, he's going to be host of Saturday Night Live next month. What further proof do we need that he's running?

    Prissy Al has transparent ambitions for the Oval Office. That's OK. But what is it about 5 or 6 recounts -- all with the same result -- that he doesn't understand?
