NEWS FLASH….Tom Spencer defends George Bush. Tomorrow: Satan rings up Saddam to order a few barrels of heating oil “just to take the chill off.”
But his colleagues apparently found the whole story so hilarious that they could hardly hold still for him to ask his questions.
TIME SCREWS UP….A few days ago I linked to a Time magazine article saying that President Bush had revived the practice of sending a Memorial Day wreath to the Confederate Memorial in Arlington National Cemetery. Today Jay Caruso links to a Washington Times article saying that Time was wrong: nobody ever stopped sending the wreath, and Bush was just keeping up the same tradition as everyone before him.
Looks like Jay (and the Washington Times) were right: Time has now retracted the story. Apparently someone was trying a little too hard to dig up a good story.
TIA ISN’T DEAD….BUT IT TOOK A BODY BLOW TODAY….Good news: LeanLeft reports that the Senate has voted to remove funding for TIA, the big government snoop program. It’s not dead yet, since the spending package it’s embedded in still has to be reconciled with the House, but it’s a start.
