QUESTION: You can't say you're challenging the facts and then not say which ones you're challenging.

12. Ambien
The number one sleep aid of guilty Republicans.

For some reason I doubt Ambien will be using that slogan anytime soon, though.

6. lol - Tweety gives Scotty the George Galloway "popinjay" treatment--

Matthews also had this to say about press secretary Scott McClellan: "How can he come out day after day like a figure on a Schwarzwarld clock and just come out and make these chirpings, these announcements that turn out not to be true and then continue to do the job? Don't they just laugh at him down there?"
:spray:

13. SCOTT McCLELLAN: Yes, I can. I just did
Yes you can Scotty, and it makes you look like a little boy stomping his feet. "It's a lie" What part of it is a lie Scotty? There's a whole big story there hon, can you be more specific? "It's ALL a lie, any part I say, it's all just stupid, and you can't make me say why!" Would cookie help Scotty? "Leave me alone!"

We're all just stupid. Scotty says so.
