On the lighter side...

From an email Joe Cuchi sent me earlier today

Three contractors are  bidding to fix a broken fence at the White  House in D.C. -- one  from New Jersey, another from Tennessee and the  third, from Florida.
They go with a White House official to examine the fence.
The Florida  contractor, Jonathan, takes out a tape measure and does some
  measuring, then works  some figures with a pencil. "Well", he says, "I figure
  the job will run about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and
  $100 profit for me."
  Cletus, the Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring,
  then says, "I can do  this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my
  crew and $100 profit for me."
  Vito from Jersey doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the White House
  official and whispers, "$2,700".   The official,  incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure like the  other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?"
The New Jersey contractor whispers back, "$1000 for me, $1000 for you,
  and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence."     "Done!" replies
  the government official.

   And that, my friends, is how it all works!

Everyone remembers the guy who didn't inhale or have sex with that woman  

Bill Clinton wants the government to “correct” what you say on the Internet, folks. Should the government listen to the former panderer-in-chief, we’ll go from Big Brother to Big Bubba on the ol’ Internet tubes.

Bubba is not happy with what he claims is the “misinformation” on the Internet and he wants the force of government to stop it all. Politico is reporting that Clinton makes the proposal in an upcoming CNBC interview saying, “It would be a legitimate thing to do.”
“That is, it would be like, I don’t know, National Public Radio or BBC or something like that, except it would have to be really independent and they would not express opinions, and their mandate would be narrowly confined to identifying relevant factual errors” he said. “And also, they would also have to have citations so that they could be checked in case they made a mistake. Somebody needs to be doing it, and maybe it’s a worthy expenditure of taxpayer money
In other words, if it's not pro Obama the Ministry of Truth will come after you.  You know he's not about to suggest stopping the distortions from MSNBC, CNN or the Washinton Post..
