    The Republicans had no intention of jumping through any hoops to appease the Democrats. But they showed some willingness to compromise.

    After a time, Moore had eaten enough that he took on a shape that observers could only label “Ironic”

  17. the man says:

    Marion Berry always said that Republicans always have a trick up their sleeves. Berry will best be remembered for being caught in a motel room smoking crack with a trick.

  20. yetanotherjohn says:

    Notice how they removed the tusks before they made the elephant do the trick that made it look ridiculous? A wise donkey could learn something from that.

  21. The GOP selection process for it’s new Majority Leader position in the House grows ever more strange.

    Halftime entertainment at the Alito confirmation hearings…or…Another Democrat attempt at making a Republican look foolish.

  30. Bithead says:

    The Democrats offer a new candidate to fill the Senate Seat Currently held by Seanator Rbt Byrd… Mr. L. A. Funt, of Wheeling, WV. Called “Mr. Big” by his freinds, he is the most Republican looking candidate fielded by the Democrats this election cycle. He’s running, say his staff, on a platform of “balance in government.”

    Says one source: “Hey, look, we had 50 years with a Byrd. May as well try another animal. It doesn’t hurt tha this one will confuse the voter.”

    Critics, however, suggest his past political exploits are not well defined. “He’s just a big grey area” said one anonymous source.

  37. OJ says:

    Announcer: “Ladies and Gentlemen: Fresh off the swiftboat from Davos Switzerland, may I present Jooooohn Kerry!!! Tonight, performing for you his latest amaaaazing circus act! With the use of plenty of smoke and mirrors, Kerry will attempt to make this flesh and blood elephant disappear!”

  38. FreakyBoy says:

    Babar yearns for the days before the US boycott of France.

  39. McCain says:

    Ted Kennedy crosses the bridge in Chappaquiddick.

  40. Elmo says:

    I could have been anything I wanted ….. instead I became a conservative politician (I really need to get out of D.C. more often). I know what your thinking, let my guard down for a minute and the clowns will take over. Well I happen to know they’re too drunk (just let em try). What’s that? You want proof. They nominated Kerry didn’t they.

  41. G A PHILLIPS says:

    All this, chew gum and still stomp on this liberal!

  42. DL says:
