File Under, "Not Much Better"

Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said last week that we needed the F-22 fighter*to help deal with the security threat from India. You might be aware that India is officially an ally of the United States. I certainly hope Cornyn is, since he's a co-chair of the Senate India Caucus.

Well, sly pol that he is, Cornyn had his spokesman clear things up today in an interview with the Times of India:

"Senator Cornyn misspoke, saying 'India' when he meant to say 'China.'"

China. That big country we began a summit with today.

That country that keeps lending us money.

We've got warning labels on blow dryers, irons, household cleaners, and children's toys. Guess what's next?

You thought the days of German invasions were over: but don't worry, this time instead of sending in Panzers, they're sending in supermarkets.

At some high-end confectioner's, milk chocolate will soon take on a slightly different meaning.

A new hunting season opens in Florida which begs the question, is Burmese python red meat or white meat?
