In Like A Lion

Hey, it's March 1.

What's going on in Bush's America?

Trio of Papers Pull Today's 'Boondocks' Referring to Bush and Drugs

NEW YORK - At least three of the approximately 300 "Boondocks" clients dropped today's strip mentioning President Bush's alleged former drug use.

Aaron McGruder's comic showed one character saying: "Bush got recorded admitting that he smoked weed." Another character replies: "Maybe he smoked it to take the edge off the coke."
No worries, citizens - thought police to the rescue.

What else?

Man shot in lobby of New York radio station during rapper's interview

Hey now.
NEW YORK (AP) Police are investigating a shooting at a Manhattan hip-hop radio station where rapper 50 CENT was making an on-air appearance.

The victim, a 24-year-old Los Angeles man, was shot in the left leg. Officials said he was taken to St. Vincent's Hospital and was listed in stable condition early Tuesday. According to Newsday, the injured man was a member of 50 Cent's entourage.

The newspaper reported that the shooting happened after 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, announced he was dropping his protege The Game from his hip-hop clique, G-Unit.

The shooting occurred around 10 p.m. Monday in the lobby of WQHT-FM, or Hot 97, police spokesman Sgt. Kevin Farrell told The Associated Press.
Reminds me of that time time when Rod Stewart tried to kill the Bee Gees.

But the best story this morning comes to us from "Roll Call" via Atrios.

One of our most kick-ass Texas Reps is itchin' to fight some evil-doers:
Now we know where Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas) thinks the weapons of mass destruction are buried: in Syria, which he said he’d like to nuke to smithereens.

Speaking at a veterans’ celebration at Suncreek United Methodist Church in Allen, Texas, on Feb. 19, Johnson told the crowd that he explained his theory to President Bush and Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas) on the porch of the White House one night.

Johnson said he told the president that night, “Syria is the problem. Syria is where those weapons of mass destruction are, in my view. You know, I can fly an F-15, put two nukes on ‘em and I’ll make one pass. We won’t have to worry about Syria anymore."
Yee-haw, congressman. Yee-haw.

"You sure you can do it in one pass, sir?"

"Faster than you can say, 'commiepinkoarabliberal."

Good times.

Good times.

More later...
