Wonkette is reporting that the next Republican "Pagefucker" (ahhh, Wonkette) who will be outted will be Jerry Weller from Illinois, who recently tried to blow hot air up the asses of a delegation of students from Olivet Nazarene University (Bourbonnais, IL) who visited him in DC to ask him what, as a member of the house international relations committee, he was doing about the 20,000+ children abducted each year in Uganda's civil war and forced to engage in murder, rape, kidnapping, cannibalism and torture. Clearly the students lost him at "mmmm child-ren". - Wonkette, Daily Journal

John McCain (R-AZ) survived being a prisoner of war in Nam as a guest in the Hanoi Hilton, but if the American people vote more Democrats than Republicans into the Senate "I think I'd just commit suicide."

"Send over the damn bill" demands the White House in regards to the 700-mile fence to keep out pesky border-crossers. But when he "autographs" it, the President will do it in the dark chambers of his evil lair away from the press. So for those scoring at home: when signing away habeas corpus invite photographers, when dissing the Latinos you're trying to pander to, tell the press to get bent - Mickey Kaus, Washington Times
