And Now The News....

.... brought to you by Liberals who smoke too much catnip:

Today, facing mounting political pressure over the Iraq war and domestic economic problems, President Bush arranged a moderate earthquake in Mexico City as a distraction.

Meanwhile, as Tony Blair faces revolt within his own Labour party over UK foreign policy in the middle East, he orders a major typhoon to strike China, and sends the state-owned BBC off to cover that instead. President Bush later calls Blair to check that he was not affected by the Mexico earthquake, as Blair is on holiday in the Caribbean.

And finally, in a move designed to make him appear warm and fuzzy, Canadian PM Stephen Harper arranges for bald eagles at the Winnipeg zoo to succesfully hatch a chick.
