In Larry King's interview with Jon Stewart, Larry was asking him about the primaries. I didn't see the episode, but someone shared Jon's response with me and I thought I'd return the favor and share it here....

Larry asked Jon if America was ready for a "woman or a black president."

Jon looked at him quizzically and said, "This is such a non-question... Did anyone ask us in 2000 if Americans were ready for a MORON?"

And the response from the Bubbas in the country was, "Yer damn right we 'er! We wants someone who can speak as gooder Anglish as we all does." Let history be the judge.

Oh, because of the gas prices, drive-by shootings are down, but jog-by shootings are on the rise. Thanks for the gas prices, Wubbya.

That's so John Stewart. Some of those journalists can't get over the simple questions like that and move on to better ones.

But they love them some Bush.

At least the country's probably ready to get rid of the moron. If only we could try the moron for treason.

I still have this mental pic of Bush sitting on the front porch of his ranch with 'ol Turd Blossom Rove, dictating his memoirs, snorting lines of coke, and swigging from a bottle of Cuervo Especial. Every 5 minutes of so, he'll stop and ask Rove "why'z ever'body hate me soo much?"

There is another card left in the deck that the SOB can still pull on the country. A "disastorous event" will take place in October that would allow Bush to declare Marshall Law, suspending the election and keeping him in power indefinately. It is an idea rooted in some of the Presidential powers he has had expanded in the last few years. Several people have written about this.

Ricci - that's effin awesome.

Monica - you should step away from the conspiracy theory websites and put down the Kool-aid. That's so not going to happen. The "several people" you mention are all a little too high from sniffing glue and haven't seen the sun for months because they're too busy playing WOW in their mothers' basements.

"why'z ever'body hate me soo much?"

Because, Georgie, you're an upper-class twit from Connecticut who went to Yale yet you talk (not to mention *think*) like a lobotomized clone of Jed Clampett.

The possibility that Bush could try to stay in office past January 20, 2009, using a declaration of marshal law, is one very good reason I support the right to own and keep firearms.

I'd love to see Bush tried for treason.

I saw this on TV and laughed my ass off. He delivered the line with the perfect deadpan.
