Cross-dressing stirs up state House race in Cleburne

Dr. Rice's opening statement to be about 20 minutes long In her opening statement, Ms. Rice is expected to speak directly to the survivors of those killed in the Sept. 11 attacks, some of whom will be in the audience in a Senate hearing room. Those survivors were angry that the White House had barred Ms. Rice from testifying in public, and it was their pressure, in part, that forced President Bush to waive claims of executive privilege that were preventing her testimony.

9/11 panel disputes White House criticism Spokesman insinuating that commission members shirked duty called 'infuriating.' White House spokesman Scott McClellan complained last month that when she testified in private, "only five members showed up" to hear what she had to say... What McClellan didn't tell reporters was that on Nov. 21 — long before Rice met with the five commissioners in February — the White House counsel's office had sent the commission a letter saying no more than three commissioners could attend meetings with White House aides of Rice's rank.

Painful Memories Erased Prior to Testimony

by Andy Borowitz
In preparation for her testimony in front of the 9/11 commission this Thursday, the White House has redacted the brain of National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice twenty-eight times, White House spokesman Scott McClellan confirmed today.
Doctors at Bethesda Naval Hospital used an experimental new procedure in which painful or embarrassing memories are virtually zapped away by a pinpoint laser beam in order to make the twenty-eight redactions to Dr. Rice’s brain.
According to White House sources, Dr. Rice now has no memory of any conversations about Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, Pervez Musharraf, Richard Clarke, or the unmanned Predator drone.
In addition, Dr. Rice can no longer recall anything that happened in the first nine months of the year 2001, the sources confirmed.
“Her memory pretty much picks up at the point where she starts doing an amazing job to protect America from terrorism,” one source said.
White House spokesman McClellan denied that the twenty-eight redactions were made to Dr. Rice’s brain in order to conceal damaging revelations that might otherwise come out in her congressional testimony.
“In the two hours allotted for her testimony, it would have been impossible for Dr. Rice to tell everything she knows,” Mr. McClellan told reporters. “But now, thanks to this procedure, she knows virtually nothing.”
At Bethesda Naval Hospital, doctors who performed the brain-zapping procedure said that the first question they asked Dr. Rice when she regained consciousness was, “Who is the President of the United States?”
“She was unable to remember Dick Cheney’s name,” one doctor said. “That’s when we knew the procedure was a success.”





I hope you saw Oprah's show yesterday. She came to San Antonio and interviewed recuperating soldiers at Brooke Army Medical Center and then in her studio, interviewed two POW's. Oprah appeared amazed at the brave attitudes of the soldiers.
They have burn scars, missing limbs and horrible nightmares from their memories but everyone of these men and women said they would do it again. One young man that had just returned from surgery, scared from being on fire, bandaged and still weak, said he couldn't wait to be released as he was going back to Iraq and wanted to get there as soon as possible.
One of the POW's, Shoshanna Johnson, said she wouldn't get caught again, but she would join the Army again. Oprah vividly described each of the soldiers attack possibly for shock value and I got the feeling she was stunned to witness their devotion to their country and fellow soldiers.
Her show was a fabulous testament to the brave and wonderful men and women fighting so we can sleep at night a little more peacefully.
One young man said it all when he told her he would gladly give his life for his country because "Freedom isn't free!"
