Strike Up The Band. "So let me get this straight: The army, confronted with the fact it doesn't have enough musicians to play at all the soldier's funerals, looks at that problem and comes up with this solution -- hire more musicians. You know I'm not a military man but it seems to me that those guys might want to start thinking outside the coffin on this one. Maybe less dead people. It's a thought." Jon Stewart, The Daily Show

This past Thursday, Congresswoman Corrine Brown (D-FL) spoke out about the 2000 election debacle, the GOP and HR-4818, a bill that would provide international monitoring of the November presidential election. "I come from Florida, where you and others participated in what I call the United States coup d'etat. We need to make sure that it doesn't happen again. Over and over again after the election when you stole the election, you came back here and said get over it. No, we're not going to get over it and we want verification from the world."

According to this report: "Those comments drew an immediate objection from Republican members of the House. Leaders moved to strike her comments from the record. The House also censured Brown which kept her from talking on the House floor for the rest of the day." ... Ain't democracy wonderful?
