Nancy Pelosi tried to run the Brazos de Cristo play at Netroots Nation,
but she was stopped at the line of scrimmage and forced to punt.
"I, George Walker Bush, President of the United States,
bear true witness to all to whose eyes these presents may
come (whom God,our Lord, honor and preserve from evil),
that on the nineteenth day
of the month of July of the year
two thousand and eight, I arrived in Houston, Texas, to
commence private fundraising in the exclusive River Oaks
neighborhood for the
purpose of defending our homeland
against cold-blooded killer Democrats."
Do you sometimes get the feeling the world is passing you by?

On his 90th birthday, Nelson Mandela remembered when President Reagan supported the apartheid government in South Africa and labeled the African National Congress a notorious terrorist organization. The memory made his day.

A measure seeking to commemorate President Bush's years
 in office by slapping his name on a San Francisco sewage plant 
has qualified for the November ballot. Opponents of the measure
 say the plant is much too 'useful' to be named after Bush. "It
 would be sorta like calling Dick Cheney an 'asshole'," a
 spokesman for the opposition says. "At least the anus
 serves a useful purpose."

We've all heard of 'market discipline'. This is how it works.
"Would it be accurate to say, Senator McCain, that you waited
until now to throw the co-chair of your campaign under the bus
because there were too many of your former advisers already
under there?"

What happens if you reverse 50 years of artery plaque but

Not even a Bushism escaped his lips when Nancy told him,
"Bless your heart, George, you're such a total failure."

While the Netroots Nation Convention is going on here
in Austin, Michelle Malkin and her friends are holding a
shadow convention across town. What they're calling it isn't
exactly clear: the 'RightOnline New Media Summit',
'Defending the American Dream--Texas Summit'
are two variants you'll find online. The program features
appearances, in addition to Michelle, by such rightist
luminaries as Robert Novak, John Fund, and Grover
Norquist. The convention is being held in the
Renaissance Hotel (the Dark Ages Motel was
apparently already booked for the weekend), and the
registration fee is only $59 (which includes free bus
transportation to and from Austin). So, if you're
looking for some comic relief on these warm summer
days, you might want to check it out.

"Good evening, Senator! Welcome to Chez Solitaire!
Party of one?"
Not to be outdone by Obama's 50-state strategy, John McCain
has just launched his revolutionary 13-colony campaign.
It happens every time: Charlie Gibson says 'political firestorm',
and all hell breaks loose. Sources says the fire department is
getting pretty tired of extinguishing his reckless cliches.
Stuart Taylor, a Brookings Institution fellow, writes: "President
George W. Bush ought to pardon any official from cabinet
secretary on down who might plausibly face prosecution
for interrogation methods approved by administration
lawyers." What a novel idea! Here's another: why not
prosecute Mr. Taylor for torturing logic, brutalizing
the rule of law, and insulting human intelligence?

Fearguth is in Austin, Texas, to celebrate the nativity of
Markos Moulitsas ZĂșniga. When the word got out that
Fearguth was coming to town, other high-profile bigwigs,
like Howard Dean and Nancy Pelosi, decided to join him
in the celebration. Meanwhile, if you are so audacious

When older people see Cindy McCain zipping around Phoenix

they think red, white, and blue,

while younger people think green.
Don't you just hate it when some supercilious smartass,
like Gary Kamiya, says you lack a sense of humor simply
because you don't laugh at his jokes? At that moment,
aren't you tempted to open his chest and perform a
humor transplant, without the benefit of anesthesia?
You've heard of 'First Adopters'. Well, when it comes
to email, John McCain is one of the 'Last Adopters'.
"I was an AP political reporter," writes Ron Fournier, "at the
time of the 2004 e-mail exchange [with Karl Rove], and
was interacting with a source, a top aide to the president,
in the course of following an important and compelling story.
I regret the breezy nature of the correspondence." 'Breezy'
means 'displaying a light-hearted nonchalance'. This word
hardly describes what Fournier wrote to Rove about Pat
Tillman: "The Lord creates men and women like this all
over the world. But only the great and free countries allow
them to flourish. Keep up the fight." That sounds about as
'breezy' as 'Onward Christian Soldiers', doesn't it?

"I know how to win wars! I know how to win the war
in Iraq. I know how to win the war in Afghanistan.
Why? Because I knew how to win the war in Vietnam.
Unfortunately, I was a prisoner of war at the time and
couldn't share my secret with the President."
Following his own advice to the American people, President
Bush took a deep breath. But then he couldn't remember what
he was supposed to do next.
"Brit Hume," writes Howard Kurtz, "a top anchor and
executive with Fox News since the channel was launched
12 years ago, plans to step down at year's end. But he won't

And in those days, a prophet came forth, speaking the word

Asked by Wolf Blitzer if there are any significant differences
in memory loss between George Bush and John McCain, Mark
Sanford, the Republican Governor of South Carolina, replied:
"Um, yeah. For instance, take, you know, take, for instance,
the issue of -- I'm drawing a blank, and I hate it when I do
that, particularly on television."
