Has Anybody Checked Barney Lately?

Last fall Bob Woodward reported George Bush as saying about Iraq, "I will not withdraw even if even Barney and Laura are the only ones supporting me."

We're getting there. Add to the list of defectors that atavar of American capitalism, Lee Ioccoca, in his new book: "I hardly recognize this country anymore. The President of the United States is given a free pass to ignore the Constitution, tap our phones, and lead us to war on a pack of lies."

At ultra-conservative Brigham Young University, students and faculty are protesting the selection of Dick Cheney as commencement speaker. "“It just feels like too much sleaze and not the right values for B.Y.U.,” a Professor of Management is quoted as saying. “We espouse honesty, chastity, integrity, ethics, virtue and morality, and he does not epitomize those values.”

Mrs. Bush is still on board but Barney, Bush's dog, is refusing to comment.
