Liar Glass Wants To Be California Lawyer

"Lawyers and journalists aren't highly regarded, although they usually rank a notch above lobbyists, members of Congress and used car salespeople in Gallup's annual Honesty and Ethics survey." - linked CNN article

Stephen Glass, infamous for fabricating information in articles he wrote for “George” and “New Republic” magazines in the late 1990s, has been trying to become a lawyer in California for the past five years. Glass graduated from Georgetown school of law in 2000, applied to the New York bar but withdrew his application after waiting several years, then applied in California in 2005. His application has been in limbo ever since.

“It’s not that there’s anything about being an accomplished liar that precludes being an attorney” a source close to the state Bar Association said. “It’s just that this guy is such an accomplished liar we don’t know if other California attorneys need the competition..”

Fortunately, Joe Wilson HAS The Guts

It takes real guts to heckle the President of the United States, particularly if you are a member of Congress, and especially if the┬áPresident is addressing Congress at the time. Fortunately for the proud people of South Carolina, Representative Joe Wilson has the guts. Lots of ’em, hanging-out all over his belt buckle, and probably seething with the kind of stomach acid even grits won’t soak up.

Wilson shouted “You lying negro commie socialist wetback lover!” (or words to that effect) at one point during President Barack Obama’s speech Wednesday night, when Obama assured the Congress and the nation that his new Health Care plan would not cover illegal aliens. Later in the speech, Obama called for civility in the health care debate, at which point Wilson vomited down the front of his shirt.

Undeterred, Obama went on to summon the ghost of the late Ted Kennedy. Kennedy duly appeared, floating in the air above the audience and, giggling, peed on Senate minority leader Mitch McConnel. Several in the audience said the tubby spectre seemed to be intoxicated.

After the speech, Wilson called the White House to apologize, saying “I’m sorry you’re a lying negro commie socialist wetback lover – really, I am.” There was no report on if the apology was accepted.
