Need a laugh - read "Alito's agenda"
Andy Borowitz in Newsweek:
- The judge said that if confirmed as a justice of the United States Supreme Court, "I will continue my practice of not owning an agenda book and not knowing what I am doing."
- But just as Alito appeared to have satisfied Senate Democrats on the agenda book issue, Sen. Edward Kennedy produced the most dramatic moment of the day by holding up an agenda book allegedly owned by Alito that the senator claimed to have bought on eBay. Reading from it, Sen. Kennedy said, "It's right here, as plain as day: 'Monday, 9 AM: Pick up dry cleaning. 10 AM: Pass litmus test.'"
- Elsewhere, Iran announced plans to enrich uranium, and Vice President Dick Cheney announced plans to enrich himself.
And so it goes.
