WASHINGTON — President Bush cast a quiet veto Wednesday against an...expansion of children's health insurance. Bush vetoed the bill in private, absent the television cameras and other media coverage that normally attend even routine presidential actions. The measure called for adding an estimated 4 million mostly lower-income children to a program that currently covers 6.6 million.

Of course, all the bleeding heart democrats are all up in arms about this.
People - we aren't looking at the big picture here.
It's all about saving the polar bears.
All the iceberg-hugging lefty liberals have had their hemp panties in a bunch for years over the polar bears' territory in the Arctic shrinking making food sources scarce. The polar bears are close to becoming endangered.
George W. Bush has a plan, America. Take all the sick children, all the feeble old people, all the infirm war vets and put them on an ice floe. The ice will melt, a little more rapidly than days of yore thanks to George's hefty build-up of greenhouse gasses, and all the polar bears get a free buffet filled with meatsicles.
Here's a picture of little Melissa, whose parents are too lazy to have insurance, getting ready to feed the polar bears. (Photo by Eddie Lawrence)

THE BS NEWS QUIZ OF THE DAY
Yesterday, I asked...
72% said "Made them work around his house"
"A controversial Alabama judge resigned Monday after allegations surfaced that he removed inmates from jail and did what?"
- No. How degrading. He has illegal immigrants for that sort of stuff.
10% picked "Baptized them"
- Nope. Although I'm sure the thought of holding their heads under water occurred to him.
9% also said "Took them to lunch"
- Now, wouldn't that be nice? Discuss rehabilitation over iced tea and Cobb salad? No.
Only 9% got the right answer "Spanked them"
According to WKRG news, resigning Judge Herman Thomas was charged with violating Alabama's canons of conduct for judges. The claims include removing inmates from Metro Jail and paddling them in a closet-type area near his courtroom. Judge Thomas was reportedly overheard in the closet saying "This is going to hurt me more than it hurts you. Or the people you mugged." No word on if he made the inmates get a switch from the yard first.
