Bits & Pieces

From the Unclear on the Concept Department:

� The driver who cut around two lanes of traffic waiting to get onto the Bay Bridge, then forced his way into the line where three lanes merge. Prominently displayed on said driver's trunk? A Jesus fish.

� The woman driving the SUV who somehow looked upset and indignant that she'd been pulled over for driving in the carpool lane.

Why, exactly, is this whole executive privilege thing a 'showdown between Congress and the White House'? When something is wrong, shouldn't it be reported as such? Again, it's funny how these scions of a 'Christian nation' routinely praise God, bless God, and invoke God seem to have such a slim grasp on the concepts.

Note to Cindy Sheehan: You're an idiot.

While I'm every bit as upset with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Harry Reid for not pushing the impeachment question, I don't have any illusions that I could gather signatures and run a successful campaign to replace either of them.

And it's slowly turning out that the much-ballyhooed 'terrorist dry runs' have been nothing of the sort. Remember how the British plot to smuggle chemical explosives initially involved 'a popular sports drink' and only later turned out to involve gimmicked bottles?

It sounds like the same thing here. Blocks of cheese wrapped in ice packs? If you didn't have a mini-lunch cooler, how would you transport something like cheese, which needs to be refrigerated? Is cheese now a suspicious item that can be consifcated?

But if you're so afraid that you'll buy the new, improved Phear al-Qaeda shinola being spread about by the Cow Chip in Chief, then it's Mission Accomplished.

The Associated Press has obtained documents that show doctors questioned the shot placement and wound location on Army Ranger Pat Tillman's body.

It seems three bullet holes in Tillman's head were so close that they could have been fired from an M-16 less than ten yards away.

Additionally, there were no indications of any enemy fire at the scene. No one other than Tillman was hit, and no military equipment was struck.

But one of the most disgusting items is the supposed difference in eyewitness accounts. Spc. Bryan O'Neal, who was at Tillman's side when Tillman was killed, recounted the Ranger shouting, "Cease fire, friendlies! I am Pat (expletive) Tillman, damn it!"

Yet a chaplain who debriefed the squad says O'Neal was hugging the ground and calling out to God for help, to which Tillman replied, "Would you shut your (expletive) mouth? God's not going to help you; you need to do something for yourself, you snivelling �"

It remains to be seen whether this is an accurate account, or if it has been embellished to emphasize Tillman's non-Christian beliefs. (Therefore, since he didn't believe, it was okay for his pals to whack his ass? Better put a bigger Jesus fish on your car, 'cause I don't think God is gonna mistake you for a friendly at any distance if that's your take.)
