And in a series of news conferences today...
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 07:24 AM by TechBear_Seattle
Media: Pay no attention to the election in Connecticut. Terra, terra, terra!

Chertoff: To prove that we are doing our jobs, we will be horribly inconveniencing everyone. Terra, terra, terra!

Gonzales: We won't give any details except to say that it was in England and has probably been foiled. Terra, terra, terra!

Cheney: This is what will happen if you don't elect my friend, Joe Lieberman, in November. Terra, terra, terra!

Rumsfeld: This plot has nothing to do with our invading and occupying two countries in the Middle East and imposing our imperialist will on a resentful population. This plot has nothing to do with our full and unwavering support of our best ally's invasion and obliteration of its neighbor. This plot has everything to do with evil Muslims who hate freedom, democracy and the One True Faith. Terra, terra, terra!

Chertoff: To protect that freedom, we must further strip away all those pesky constitutional protections. Terra, terra, terra!

Gonzales: But don't worry: you don't need them anyway, and national safety is far more important than inconventent rights anyway. Terra, terra, terra!

Media: All hail the Emperor! Big Brother loves us! God save King George! Terra, terra, terra!

2. The timing of these terra things is truly amazing, isn't it?
Right on cue. You couldn't...well...PLAN them any better. And Bush always seems to be in some secluded spot just beforehand. So does Cheney. And Rice. Hmmm...doesn't take the town fool to see through this one.

Terra, terra, terra. Brought to you by those friendly, down home folks of The Bush Terror Administration.

3. There is only one step to go before they tell us not to drink our tap or
bottled water or take a bath or cook with water or flush. And no watering the grass and gardens.

But enjoy your flights.

And tell me ...

Who was the discoverer of cynicism?

4. The inventor of cynicism: St. Murphy the Monastic
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 08:04 AM by TechBear_Seattle
St. Murphy the Monastic was an Irish abbot in the 6th century. Once thought to be a pious legend about long-suffering faith, his existence was recently verified with the discovery of several ancient manuscripts from the ruins of monastary on the north Irish coast. Included in those manuscripts was St. Murphy's journal, wherein he wrote the passage that has long been attributed to him:

That the faith of the Faithful might be tested as gold in a crucible, God did decree from the beginning of the world: Anything that could go wrong, would.

Oh, my. Are those Viking longboats coming in to the harbor?

He is not to be confused with St. Murphy the Disciple, Rebbe Murfi'ah, the Chinese sage Muru Fu, the Sufi mystic Murffiya or Dr. John Murphy, formerly of UC Berkeley.
