Murtha Calls for Rumsfeld’s Resignation

Rep. Jack Murtha tells NBC’s Tim Russert that Rumsfeld Should Resign

MR. RUSSERT: The president picks up the phone and calls you up, and says “Jack, come on down. You voted for this war, you now think it was a mistake, but we’re in a fix. And if I get out right away, we could leave behind a civil war, we could leave behind a haven for terrorism. Tell me specifically Mr. Murtha, what should I do today?”

REP. MURTHA: Here, here’s what you should do, Mr. President. First of all, you should fire all the people who are responsible for that, which gives you international credibility.

MR. RUSSERT: Including his secretary of defense?

REP. MURTHA: Well, he, he should—well, let’s say he should offer his resignation, because he certainly…

MR. RUSSERT: And it’s sure to be accepted?

REP. MURTHA: I would accept it, that’s exactly right.

“Trapped In The Closet” maybe trapped forever

By Chris Casey

A war between nutty Hollywood religion, Scientology, and the creators of Comedy Central’s hit animated series, South Park, rages on. The episode entitled “Trapped in the Closet” which sparked the war, aired late last year and became an instant South Park classic. The Scientologists are up in arms now, demanding Comedy Central (a Viacom company) pull the episode permanently. They crazies won the first battle when Isaac Hayes (the voice of Chef and practicing Scientologist) up and quit last week. Obviously the Scientologists are not concerned too much with their public image because generally people who whine and complain about being the subject of parody are labeled asshole’s who cant take a joke.

The creators of the series issued the below statement to the Daily Variety magazine:

So, Scientology, you may have won THIS battle, but the million-year war for earth has just begun! Temporarily anozinizing our episode will NOT stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies. Curses and drat! You have obstructed us for now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail! Hail Xenu!!!

-Trey Parker and Matt Stone, servants of the dark lord Xenu

The National Report Endorses Trey and Matt on this issue

Iraq is in the middle of civil war, the country’s former interim prime minister Iyad Allawi has told the BBC.

He said Iraq had not got to the point of no return, but if it fell apart sectarianism would spread abroad.

The UK and US have repeatedly denied Iraq is facing a civil war, but Mr Allawi suggested there was no other way to describe the sectarian violence.
