"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

Sunday, January 02, 2005


This goes back a couple weeks, but it came out on my birthday so I have to post it.

From the Borowitz report:
An interceptor rocket that failed to launch last week during a test of a proposed missile defense system confounded its critics today by receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom in a ceremony at the White House.

President George W. Bush presided over the ceremony, placing the Medal of Freedom around the part of the rocket that would be its neck if rockets had necks.

As he presented the medal, Mr. Bush made no mention of the interceptor rocket’s refusal to leave the ground, saying only that the missile had “made our country more secure and advanced the cause of human liberty.”
There's more where that came from.

Happy new year, from all of us (me) at The Facts Machine.

Rest in peace, Rep. Matsui.
