A pre-dawn Christmas morning fish tale: Bashing Bush is more fun than baitin' bass
By Sheila Samples
I have a cold. And I got it the only way I know how to
do things -- the hard way. On Christmas Eve, I decided I'd give myself a
present. I had this bright idea to get a head start on the new year by testing
the strength of the Equal Rights Amendment -- you know, the ERA, the free pass
that enterprising women have used for years to back stubborn men into corners .

Don�t even start calling things Bushian
By Mark Drolette
I�m sick of lefties snidely comparing the grim
totalitarian society of George Orwell�s 1984
to today�s freedom-spewing United
States, a country few Americans would dare call dystopian, even if they could define it. The following analysis
exposes these aspersions as utterly specious.

A �pattern sensor� alert!
By Kerry Tomasi
As a certified pattern sensor, I�ve detected a certain
pattern involving the Bush administration and the corporate media. It appears
to be Rovian in nature, which means it�s complex and can be difficult to
detect, unless you�ve been trained to detect such things, as I have.
