Monica Goes Bi-partisan

(AP Photo/Christophe Ena) “President Bush was visited today by Monica Lewinski, who is now a registered Independent. ‘It’s only fair,’ said Ms. Lewinski. ‘I made a promise to myself that if President Bush made it to a second term, then he’d get the same treatment as President Clinton.

Long walk, short pier?

(REUTERS/Christian Charisius) “Harbour officials closed the entire Wismar port today, fearful of the environmental hazard which might be caused by Laura Bush and all her makeup falling into the water. When asked about the increased security, Mrs. Bush seemed to ponder the question for a moment, then responded, ‘I like boats! Are you a seaman? I like seamen.’ She then wandered aimlessly along the pier, tossing Alka Seltzer tablets to the seagulls.”
