"A noun, a verb, and 9/11"

In tonight's Donkey Debate, the Overqualified/Ice-Cube-in-Hell candidate Joe "Clean & Articulate" Biden nailed Giuliani with all the finesse that Bentsen nailed Quayle back in 1988. (Of course GOPper Giuliani wasn't there, but still...)

Hillary, Obama, Edwards, whomever, take note: zingers work. Much as I hate "sound-byte" politics, it works.

Who says its boring in the Great Northwest? --unless of course you use "boring" as a verb instead of an adjective.

Extremely Short One-Act Play of the Day

Q Thank you, sir. A simple question.
THE PRESIDENT: Yes. It may require a simple answer.
Q What’s your definition of the word “torture”?
THE PRESIDENT: Of what?
Q The word “torture.” What’s your definition?
THE PRESIDENT: That’s defined in U.S. law, and we don’t torture.
Q Can you give me your version of it, sir?
THE PRESIDENT: Whatever the law says.

Quote of the Day

"I didn’t realize, as a gay man, that I’d be a criminal once I arrived - because it’s illegal for a man to make love to another man in Singapore. I was rather naughty because I was on an early morning show… At the end of the interview, they asked what was I looking forward to doing while I was in Singapore. And I looked at the man, who was clearly straight, and said, `Can you recommend any decent gay bars?’, which would be illegal in every possible way. I looked at the playback of the program afterwards and I’ve never seen the credits come up so quickly!"

- Ian McKellen, speaking about appearing on Singaporean television.

Guess Who Said It?

"If we took away women's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about another Democrat president. It's kind of a pipe dream, it's a personal fantasy of mine, but I don't think it's going to happen."

Give up? This person said it.
