Pelosi: "Were the London suicide bombers depressed?"

Could bombers have been despondent over US/UK policy in Iraq?

Congressional inquiries begin this week into what UK and US intelligence agencies knew about the bombers' "lives of quiet desperation" and why more wasn't done to prevent the bombing. Senate Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and other prominent Democrats believe the tragedy that killed 60 in London on 7/7 could have been avoided.

Pelosi believes, "both American and British governments were blind to 'the many red flags' present in the lives of at least two of the bombers: Shehzad Tanweer (L) Hasib Hussain (R)."

"Let's face it," Pelosi stated, "happy people don't blow themselves up. Had the President not been on vacation so much this Summer, perhaps he and his administration would have noticed the warning signs."

House Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) echoed Ms. Pelosi's concern, "Hussain, the bomber ringleader, had been moping around the house for weeks. I mean, police even found bad poetry and Morrissey posters in his apartment. What did Blair and Bush need, a written invitation?"

Friends of the troubled pair say just days prior to their deaths they had become withdrawn and had given away all of their favorite CDs, RPGs, and beheading videos. Sources indicate both had even lost interest in their favorite activities: beating Jews and Christians, subjugating unclean whores, and building detonators.

Senator John Kerry (D-MA) reinforced their assessments, "A blind man could have seen this coming. Suffice to say, a Kerry administration would
have intervened early with a crack team of therapy counselors trained to get these troubled youths they help they so desperately needed. This was not an act of terror so much as a cry for help."

That would be a humourous blog entry if there was a kernel of truth... Did Nancy "too much eyeliner" actually say such a thing?

Hello Bob,

I don't *think* she said it. But, I think no one would be surprised to find out otherwise.

Didn't she oppose the first Gulf War on the grounds it would cause environmental damage?

I don't know -- but if she did she was a psychic 'cause the burning wells in Kuwait did cause environmental damage on a large scale...

White House Denies Existance of Karl Rove

WASHINGTON, DC — The White House denied rumors of wrong doing by anyone named Karl Rove, saying the alleged deputy chief of staff does not exist.

"To my knowledge, no one by the name of Karl Rove works for this president, his staff, or for that matter, anyone on earth, since he is not a real person," White House press secretary Scott McClellan told reporters Monday.

Despite White House denials, allegations have surfaced in recent weeks that Karl Rove is the man who leaked covert CIA operative Valerie Plame's identity to the press. He is rumored to be President Bush's senior advisor, chief political strategist, architect of the president's 2000 and 2004 election victories, and the current deputy White House chief of staff, as well as a frequent guest on televised political talk shows.

"None of these allegations are supported by the facts," McClellan said. "The opponents of this administration have created a mythical figure in order to discredit the president. All they have done is divert attention from the important work at hand—the war in Iraq and the war on terror. In doing so, they have dishonored the sacrifices of our brave men and women in uniform."

"This time," he added, "the Democrats have gone too far."

According to fringe journalist Lou Dubose, author of Boy Genius: Karl Rove, The Brains Behind The Remarkable Political Triumph Of George W. Bush, Rove was born Dec. 25, 1950 in Denver, CO. Dubose alleges that Rove lived in Colorado with his family until 1963, when he moved to Salt Lake City, UT. According to Dubose, the shadowy figure entered politics in college, quickly moving through the ranks to become the chairman of the College Republican National Committee at age 22.

McClellan reiterated his denial of Karl Rove's existence 33 times during the press conference. When pressed, he distributed a list of "real, actual political figures about whom I'd be happy to comment." The list included only President George W. Bush and Secretary of Transportation Norman Y. Mineta.

Rumors of the figure's existence were given a boost early this month when, as part of the official investigation into the CIA leak, a Time magazine reporter named Rove as the source of the leak.

"This is a very clever fiction concocted by those on the other side of the aisle," Vice President Dick Cheney said. "It's preposterous at its core."

The phantom advisor has come under heavy fire in recent weeks from critics of the administration, who say he should be fired for his role in the scandal. President Bush has pledged that anyone in his administration found to be involved in the CIA leak will be dismissed.

"There is no such organization as the CIA," McClellan said. "This is tinfoil-hat stuff."
