The World Energy Watch presents recent news and analysis highlighting the activities of the players involved in the power struggle for the world's remaining energy resources

Washington D.C. (NIS) - Impersonator Rich Little's presentation to the White House Correspondents Association annual dinner didn't evoke any laughter at all, except for a few stifled chortles from Jon Stewart, who was seated at the very back of the ballroom. Here, from the White House correspondents own News Impersonation Service, are excerpts from that presentation:

The lady doth protest too much, methinks.
--From Hamlet

As a young girl of 12, I started working fulltime in a professional theatre. Six days a week, 4 p.m. to midnight after grade school, I took two busses across town to wash clothes and mop up after some of the most delightfully eccentric and flamboyantly gay artists in the known universe.

by Michael Winship

I love the theater but never come late. Or try not to. I had a girlfriend many years ago who so consistently was late for the theater I fantasized about publishing a book of the first acts of plays we'd missed because of her pokiness.


Mr. Carville, we know your wife is a Repuglican, we know you love her very much, but really sir, when did you start advising the Repuglican Party??? "CARVILLE: ... I also think that there's a good chance that the Republican nominee is not even in the race yet. BLITZER: So, give me some names. CARVILLE: Jeb Bush. He's ... the only person I know who could unify the Republican Party. ... there's a political market ... there's great dissatisfaction ... I don't see a unifying force within the Republican Party right now that can run for president, other than Jeb Bush. That's why I think that, in -- in the end, the party will turn to him." Another Bush indeed, what a revolting development that would be! Does anyone really want "apocalypse now"??? 

This doesn't really surprise me
But I do want to point out at this time
That everywhere Karl seems to be
Seems to be the scene of the crime.

I bet Mueller and Gonzales are convinced their careers are through
They must feel like Fredo after Michael kissed him in "Godfather II."

Cindy Sheehan: Betrayals

by Cindy Sheehan

In the past week, my travels have taken me to 15 different cities in New England holding impeachment teach-ins.

Admittedly, we were speaking to converted, mostly singing, Impeachment Choir members, but the outrage against the crimes of the BushCo is palpable and profound.


I believe that we’re close to a tipping point right now. What happened to the Soviet Union between 1989 and 1991 could easily be happening to us for essentially the same reasons. Imperial overreach, inability to reform, rigid economic ideology. ... The world’s balance of power didn’t change one iota on September 11, 2001. The only way we could lose the power and influence we had at that time was through our own actions, and that’s what we did.


Iraq is spiraling towards violence in way most people do not realize. But it is not because of what is going on in Iraq; the problem is what is coming out of Iraq.

An estimated 2.3 million Iraqis have fled the country since the 2003 invasion, and 1.7 million are displaced within Iraq. These 4 million uplifted people make up about 16% of the 2003 population of roughly 25 million.
