A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

"Carpet Bagging" in Reverse 

The Texas Republican Party wants to remove the ever-corrupt Tom DeLay from the upcoming ballot and replace him with someone not under a cloud of suspicion and criminal indictments. The Democratic Party is opposing this saying DeLay withdrew from the race and his name should remain on the ballot.

So, enter Carpet Bagging in Reverse. According to Texas law, if a candidate is ineligible to be on the ballot, he/she may be replaced. Thus, DeLay moves to Virginia to make himself ineligible to represent Texas as a Congressman, a thinly veiled attempt to circumvent the spirit of the law.
