Tantalizing Tuesday Tidbits
In case you missed it...
For starters:
A new no-frills airline that begins weekly flights between Baghdad and Amman, Jordan, in August will only accept certain passengers - U.S. and Western citizens.

Iraqis, Indians, Pakistanis and other non-Westerners need not apply.

Expat Airways, looking to capitalize on the thousands of contract workers in Iraq, is believed to be the world’s only commercial airline to blacklist such a large swath of nationalities.

Quarterly Reports Indicate Paul Raised More From Military Than Other Republicans One might think such criticism of the war and the Commander-in-Chief's leadership would make Paul a pariah to the military community, however, the latest figures indicate the antiwar Republican is receiving more donations from employees of the US military than any other Republican candidate.
And finally:
The Pittsburgh newspaper owned by conservative billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife yesterday called the Bush administration's plans to stay the course in Iraq a "prescription for American suicide."

The editorial in the Tribune-Review added, "And quite frankly, during last Thursday's news conference, when George Bush started blathering about 'sometimes the decisions you make and the consequences don't enable you to be loved,' we had to question his mental stability."

It continued: "President Bush warns that U.S. withdrawal would risk 'mass killings on a horrific scale.' What do we have today, sir?
I never thought I'd agree with a Scaife-owned anything. I'm a little concerned about my own mental stability now.

And Venus, just like Bush, probably thinks IT'S way is the RIGHT way.

Way to go from 'mass killings on a horrific scale' to 'Laughing Cow Cheese facts'! Puts everything in its proper perspective.
