Hey everybody, party at my country!!

I wish I'd known this so I'd have time to make one of my famous cream cheese-dried beef-chopped onion-chopped pecan-Worcestershire-garlic-Tabasco cheese balls, but . . . .

There's $20 million in the U.S. FY 2006-07 budget for an Iraq victory celebration!!


Yes, I heard it from National Public Radio this weekend, even if Fox News says they never get anything right because they use basic tools like journalistic integrity, multiple sources, fact checking and interviewing all sides in a story.

Give me a couple of secs to stop laughing . . . .

$20 million for a victory party. When's the Nuremburg party start? And where's Albert Speer, Jr. going to build all the memorials to the Republicans? Hope he's got plenty of statues of nubile young male pages to inspire future generations of molestation victims working to further the Reich's . . . oops, I meant the Republic's fight for traditional family values and against child predators . . .


I kill myself . . . .

Haven't you felt the tug on your buttocks too? I wonder if Mark Foley was in charge of party decorations and getting the keg >H^D>

I wondered what the tugging was.

They can't be serious....

Just think what $20 million can buy...
Body armor? VA Centers? A power station in Iraq that works? Prescription drugs for the poorest seniors? Therapy for sexually abused minors? Day care subsidies for women leaving welfare? Um... those things were all cut back, so I guess we know where the money came from.

Yep, folks. $20 million, and it was a carryover appropriation for the same thing in the FY 2005-06 budget. So that's at least two years this country will have sat on $20 million in pin money for a party.

I like your thinking, Miss C., but the Republican Congressional Caucus doesn't - those worthless friggin party animal and accessories after the fact in a child molestation case.

Well, look, gas prices are plunging right before the election, so they have that covered. So when the surprise capture of Osama Bin Laden occurs right before the Presidential elections, they are going to need some serious confetti in order to celebrate, and confetti don't come cheap!

Exerpt from the upcoming bio of Osama.......

"Every morning, I would get up and go outside the cave to wave at the elite special forces squad that always passed by at precisely 7 am. So many times I wanted to greet them with a surprise ambush, but I could not afford to muck up the deal that Bush made not to execute me when this squad "captured" me. It has been hardest on my closest lietenants who have had to endure the shame of my betrayal of our cause, but they also realized that THEIR families would be dead the next day if anything went wrong with the deal........"

I like what Gawker called the Foley scandal: Cocktober Surprise.

Isn't $20 mil just about enough to give every Iraqi a Dixie cup of Kool-Aid? Just a cynical thought that happened my way.

Rain, actually, it may be enough to give every American a cup as long as we use the sugar-free stuff.

Lee - best description I've heard today.

I think we should all chip in $20 so everyone can have at least a chili hot dog with their dixie cup of Kool-Aid.

Apologies to my non-adoring fans - it's been another 'fun' week at the news desk.

I'll be coherent in a few hours.
