George Bush Saves Social Security and Iraq:
President George W. Bush intimated today that God has chosen him to fix the ailing Social Security System. “Saving Social Security is an economic challenge. But it is also a profound moral obligation, one that Jesus would want me to address. In fact, it was Jesus who came to me last night and said, ‘George, fix Social Security’, or maybe it was Karl Rove… I always mix those two up.”
In other news about things that God told Mr. Bush to fix the President, in an interview with The Washington Post said that the publics decision to reelect him was a ratification of his unprovoked attack on Iraq so no one in his Administration, least of all himself, should take any blame for lying about his reasons for a preemptive war that so far has claimed the lives of over one hundred thousand Iraqi’s and over one thousand American troops. “The world is a safer place today because we wupped Saddam’s little brown butt,” said Mr. Bush, “that is of course unless you’re an Iraqi citizen…then you’re screwed.” The President’s Christian Base, who elected him to pack the Supreme Court with anti gay and anti abortion judges responded to the Presidents comments by saying, “What the hell is Iraq?”

Charles Graner Sentenced in Abu Ghraib Torture Case:
Army Specialist Charles Graner was sentenced to ten years in a military prison for his part in the now infamous Abu Ghraib torture case. Graner whose photo appeared around the world as he partook in the degradation of Iraqi prisoners along with fellow soldiers Lynndie England and Sabrina Harmon, tried unsuccessfully to convince the military tribunal that he was acting on orders from higher up the chain of command. The judges however, knowing which side their bread is buttered on, chose to dismiss that claim and characterized Mr. Graner as the ringleader. Reports are that Mr. Graner is looking ahead now to completing his sentence and joining Ms. England and Ms. Harmon in the Adult S&M movie business.
