Here is a transcript of this most unfortunate break-up that we can only pray our country will be able to get over in order to get back to the job Bush intends for us to complete - The Defeat of Terrorism:
Ben: Honey Buns, I have something important to talk to you about. Is it true that the LA Times will soon report that auditors believe the USO improperly billed the Pentagon for expenses incurred at the show you did in Afghanistan?
Jenny from the Block: Ye... Yes, I guess it is.
B-Af: I guess I have to break-up with you permanently now, fucking and everything. I just can't have you ruining my reputation. I've tried to move away from associating with Howard Zinn by appearing in stuff like Pearl Harbor but I think this will ruin my rep.
Never Mrs. Puff Daddy: Oh.
Matt Damon's Friend: Yes. I'm sorry.
I was rereading Bush's SOTU speech to see when if the applause related to the "Key provisions of the Patriot Act are set to expire next year" was noted. To Team Bush's credit, it was. But here is the whole graf from the official transcript:
Key provisions of the Patriot Act are set to expire next year. (Applause.) The terrorist threat will not expire on that schedule. (Applause.) Our law enforcement needs this vital legislation to protect our citizens. You need to renew the Patriot Act. (Applause.)Who was applauding about how the terrorist threat not ending next year? Seems to me they need to held accountable.
No democracy till you do what we say, Jeff Jarvis thinks we should tell the Iraqis.
