Bush to Congress: drop dead

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060221/...ports_security

"WASHINGTON - President Bush said Tuesday that a deal allowing an Arab company to take over six major U.S. seaports should go forward and that he would veto any congressional effort to stop it."

Personally, I think its ridiculous to even consider blocking the deal, but the great mass of unwashed Merkins seems to think otherwise and has communicated such to their local theives Congresscritters. Doesn't matter to me: I'm just thrilled to see the administration further mired in something that hurts their public opion ratings. The fact that it is being perpetrated by his fellow gay-bashing Xtian fundamentalists makes it that much sweeter.

U.S. Outsources Homeland Security to North Korea
Little-known Korean company ‘seems okay,’ says Chertoff

By Andy Borowitz, Newsweek


Feb. 21, 2006 - Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff raised eyebrows today by announcing that the United States would outsource all of it homeland security operations to a little-known North Korean firm called Jim Kong-Il Inc.

Coming just days after the controversial decision to allow several major U.S. ports to be run by a company based in the United Arab Emirates, the outsourcing of the nation’s homeland security functions to an obscure company based in an Axis of Evil country struck some in Washington as ill-timed at best.

But Chertoff vigorously defended the decision in a Washington press conference this afternoon, calling Jim Kong-Il Inc. the "right firm for the job," adding, “I looked into the company and it seems okay.”

When asked exactly how thoroughly he had vetted the North Korean firm, Chertoff said, “Well, I mean, I haven’t Googled it or anything but you just have to trust me on this one.”

Almost nothing is known about the North Korean company that is about to control the U.S.’s entire homeland security apparatus, nor about its highly reclusive founder, the mercurial Jim Kong-Il.

In an official statement released today, Jim Kong-Il said that his company’s first official act on behalf of the U.S. would be to collect all of the nation’s nuclear fuel rods.

“It is of utmost importance that America’s nuclear fuel rods do not fall into the wrong hands,” his statement read. “Therefore, we will collect all of those fuel rods and ship them to North Korea immediately.”

Elsewhere, Vice President Dick Dick Cheney admitted having a beer at lunch before advocating the invasion of Iraq.

Bunch of frickin idiots.

Do they have a high end think tank that sits around and tries to come up with stuff that you cant get an intelligent person to swallow even if you coat it with three pounds of vaseline? Just to see if they can pull it off??
