Weekend Odds and Ends

We survived another week with our sanity. Congrats, first drink's on me. Here's the news...

Michigan Democrats, you're on notice, because the Senate leadership just scored this: "Senators reached agreement Thursday on a proposal to increase automobile fuel economy standards to 35 miles per gallon, the first significant boost demanded of automakers in nearly 20 years." Hopefully this will survive after 'compromises'.

It'll be even more impressive if they can pull this off: "The House will cast a landmark vote Thursday when it decides whether to reverse U.S. policy and provide contraceptive grants to groups overseas that also provide abortions. This has been greeted with, you guessed it, promises of a veto from the President.

But thanks to that pesky war, everyone hates Congress. And Lil' Bush is in Nixon terrority.

Speaking of the Executive Branch... ABC News reports that "Vice President Dick Cheney has asserted his office is not a part of the executive branch of the U.S. government, and therefore not bound by a presidential order governing the protection of classified information by government agencies."

Someone needs to impeach this monster hand this man a civics textbook.

ABC News also reports that the military spends tens of billions a year on projects like bombs to make people gay, psychic teleportation, arming sharks with chemical implants, and more. Your tax dollars at work!

Wyoming has found its new Senator... it's Republican John Barrasso.

Finally, did Osama bin Laden arrange the post-9/11 U.S-Saudi flights?! The truth is out there!
