Horror-witz

From the New York Post:

October 27, 2007 — A controversial author yesterday compared the treatment of conservatives on college campuses to a recent incident in which a black Columbia University professor was targeted with a noose hung on her office door.

“Nooses have been figuratively put on the doors of college Republicans,” conservative commentator and Columbia alum David Horowitz claimed in a speech at the Ivy League school.

Conservatives, always the victims.

Yes or No? Not Knowing is Just Torture!!

From the International Herald Tribune:

A Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee said he might consider opposing President George W. Bush’s choice for U.S. attorney general if the nominee says waterboarding is not torture.

Sen. Lindsey Graham joined two top Senate Democrats in urging nominee Michael Mukasey, a former federal judge, to disclose his views. Mukasey so far has refused to say explicitly what his position is on the lawfulness of the interrogation technique, which simulates drowning.

Where ya been, Lindsey? Out shopping for rugs in Baghdad, maybe? What took you so long to speak up?

Don’t Press Your Luck

From The New York Times:

WASHINGTON, Oct. 26 — The Federal Emergency Management Agency staged a fake news conference this week, with agency staff officials, pretending to be reporters, peppering one of their own bosses with decidedly friendly questions about the response to the California fires, the Department of Homeland Security acknowledged Friday.

Are We Having Funds Yet?

From the Los Angeles Times:

Setting up another confrontation with congressional Democrats over the war in Iraq, President Bush on Monday sent Congress a $45.9-billion emergency funding request for expenses related to U.S. military campaigns around the world.

The request, which comes on top of $147.5 billion sought by the administration earlier this year, pushes the cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to more than $600 billion.

It also appears certain to further inflame tensions between the president and his Democratic critics on Capitol Hill, who are locked in a rancorous debate over federal spending bills as well as the war.
