Bush Takes A Leak

Who, Me?

President George W. Bush vowed to fire the person responsible for leaking the name of an undercover CIA operative to the press. Today, we finally know who that person is.

President George W. Bush.

"Finally we've gotten to the bottom of this," said Bush, in a statement. "Now we can fire the evildoer and get back to the business of fighting terror."

Bush vowed to pursue criminal charges against the "America-hating leaker."

"We will prosecute this individual to the fullest extent of the law. George Bush needs to realize that leaks will not be tolerated by my administration."

When reporters pointed out that Bush was indeed, talking about himself, the President went on the offensive.

"Why does the press always have to be so negative? All you guys ever talk about is that 50 people were killed in a mosque explosion. No one's mentioned that we handed out a hundred Hello Kitty notepads to a school in Tirkut today."

"Make no mistake," Bush continued. "We will win this war, despite the damage that people like this George Bush guy do when they leak classified information."

I Like Music

My credit card bill recently revealed to me what may be a terrifying addiction (and welcome one, as far as the record inustry is concerned). I can't stop downloading from the iTunes music store. I'm just too fed up with Limewire ( and the way that it freezes my computer. Plus, I can never find anything that isn't Top 40, and most of the files end up sounding awful. iTunes, on the other hand, has turned me on to a whole new world of independent music... mostly through its "Listener's Also Bought" feature and "Just For You" features.

Among my discoveries:

Jens Lekman- I can't stop listening to "Maple Leaves" and "Black Cab," the best tracks from "Oh, You're So Silent Jens" He's from Sweden. And he's weird. If those songs don't convince you he's an oddball worth listening to, this video will.

The Wrens- I bought "Meadowlands" on the strength of "Thirteen Grand" and "Everyone Chooses Sides." You should buy it just because of this hilariously honest bio.

And a good song from a band I know nothing about: "No Place Like Home" by Home & Thom
Like a less depressing Coldplay.

There's a lot more, but that's all I got for you now. Also, check out Sickabod Sane, who's not on iTunes, but will be shortly. Get his tracks for free while you still can.

Stupid Girls

A kid got girls at an all-girls private school to enthusiastically sign a petition urging an end to woman's suffrage. Suffrage, for those of you who don't know.. is the right to vote.

The hilarious video is here: Girls Sign Against Voting Rights

Susan B. Anthony is rolling in her grave.
