A mug from the past:
Guess my son turns 3 in less than a week, I turn 41 in a month, they found a planet which could possibly sustain life which has not yet been seen and is trillions of miles away, Rostapovich dies a month after his 80th birthday, April 26 (Bloomberg) -- The Senate approved a war spending measure calling for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, sending it to President George W. Bush who says he'll veto it.
A day after the House passed the legislation, the Senate voted 51-46 to approve it. Bush has promised to reject the $124.2 billion bill, which would require lawmakers to then draft new legislation to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that doesn't include any troop withdrawals.
``This legislation is dead before arrival.'' Mississippi Republican Trent Lott said. ``Next week can we get together and do the right thing.'' Wow, didnt know that Trent Lott was such a big fan of Spike Lee??? I guess I can see it, having been friends with Strom Thurmond who is now dead.....isnt he??? Thats assuming he was once alive, of course! Democratic presidental candidates have their first debate called "Who are we??? Why are we here???" debate in South Carolina. The contestants: Senator Joe Biden of Delaware, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, Senator Christopher Dodd of Connecticut, Former Senator John Edwards of North Carolina, Former Senator Mike Gravel of Alaska, Representative Dennis Kucinich of Ohio, Senator Barack Obama of Illinois, with Bill Richardson from New Mexico exploring the possibility of running and Westly Clark thinking about it and who knows about Ralph Nader, but I think maybe not. Then theres the Republicans: Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas John H. Cox of Illinois, Former Governor Jim Gilmore of Virginia ,Former Mayor and 9/11 star, Rudy Giuliani of New York City, New York, Representative Duncan Hunter of California, Senator John McCain of Arizona, Representative Ron Paul of Texas, Former Governor Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, Representative Tom Tancredo of Colorado, Former Governor Tommy Thompson of Wisconsin, then the one exploring and seriously considering: Former Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas (Exploratory Committee), Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia, Osama Bin Laden, the unknown comic, Senator Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, Former Senator and actor Fred Thompson of Tennessee. Then you have libertarians greens constitution party, independants, but so far no silly o,r farce(well, obvious farce) candidates like maybe Chuck Norris or a power ranger or britany spears or chuck woolery or moe larry or curly, groucho, harpo, chico, zeppo, scrooge mcduck, yosemite sam, foghorn leghorn, tasmanian devil(oh, hes vice president, currently, whoops!) dr. jeckyll, mr. hyde, randolph hearst, rosebud, mr. smith, dr. jones, as in indiana jones, rocky balboa, rambo, kermit the frog(green party, the terminator( governor of california), jessie the mind ventura, bobby the brain hennan, mr. wonderful, brutus beefcake, bluto, popeye, the jeep, some smelly Yak, and the rest of the cast from the sgt. peppers lonely hearts club band record album collage!!!!
