  Mood:it's funny cuz it's true
Oval Office
You are standing inside a White House, having just been elected to the presidency of the United States. You knew Scalia would pull through for you.

There is a large desk here, along with a few chairs and couches. The presidential seal is in the middle of the room and there is a full-length mirror upon the wall.

What do you want to do now?

> INVADE IRAQ
You are not able to do that, yet.

> LOOK MIRROR
Self-reflection is not your strong suit.

> PET SEAL
It's not that kind of seal.

Because Snapper refuses to manufacture cheap pieces of junk.

Al-Jazeera on Thursday aired an audiotape from Osama bin Laden, who says al-Qaida is making preparations for attacks in the United States but offers a truce on "fair" but undefined conditions. The CIA has authenticated the voice on the tape as that of bin Laden, an agency official said.

Hey look, we're WINNING THE WAR ON TERROR. Uh... or not. So, do you still think Bush is doing the right things to protect America? If so, why is the man who brought down the World Trade Center with the airplanes still alive, well, walking free, and telling us about the plans for his next attack?

And how's that war in Iraq going? Still a huge mess? 2219 soldiers dead and counting. Have we won yet?
