    This will put a smile on your face:

    U.S. Administrator for Iraq, Paul Bremer,
    "in a morning meeting on Wednesday, Mr. Bremer warned the Iraqi leaders that they risked isolating themselves and their country if they continued to snub the United Nations. -- NY Times​

    The U.S. is now lecturing Iraqi leaders on the merits of listening to the U.N.

    Yet again they beat satirists to the punch.

    Comedians must be making up a large number of the unemployment rate.

    the problem is heightening. when writing comedy, it's (almost) necessary. these guys do their own heightening. i bet the guys at the Onion are having a hell of a hard time.

    Anyone see the Daily Show segment that went off on Bush's fake Medicare ads, complaining "how the hell can we compete with the US government in the production of fake news?"
