News from the crooked party:  According to the Chicago Sun-Times, as of 2006, when Blago's predecessor, George Ryan, was sent to prison for racketeering, 79 elected officials had been convicted of corruption in the past 30 years. Among the perps: 27 aldermen, 19 judges, 15 state legislators, three governors, two congressmen, one mayor, two turtledoves and a partridge in a stolen pear tree.  But, they did it for the CHILDREN.......
News from the stupid party:  The George W Bush presidency is as bankrupt as GM.   Conservatives, like nails, lose their usefulness when they lose direction and begin to bend....

Private Paul's Perilous Puns..............................
Morris Crisp was very sad when his father passed away. When his mother remarried to a retired Navy captain named Arthur Ness, and made Morrie take the name of his step-father. Morrie felt she was betraying the memory of his father. After he grew up, and his mother died, Morrie had Arthur committed to a nursing home and bilked him of his life savings. When he was caught, the newspapers read, "Morrie Crisp-Ness fleeces Navy Dad!"
The participants in a Xmas pageant forgot their lines, tripped on their floor length costumes, and otherwise totally botched up the performance. All the same, they were foolish enough to show up for a curtain call, at which they promptly were pelted with whatever the  audience had on hand, rather than being applauded. As they retreated backstage to clean up, the lead player remarked to the others,  "Well, those were certainly bows of folly."

A mother was pleased with the card her son had made her for Christmas, but was puzzled as to the scraggly-looking tree from which many presents dangled, and near the top, something that looked strangely like a bullet. She asked him if he would explain the drawing and why the tree itself was so bare, instead of a fat pine tree. "It's not a  traditional Christmas tree," he explained. "It's a cartridge in a bare tree."

But, on the other hand.......
Hope is the thing with feathers

And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all
