Wanted -- public school superintendent and man of God; preferably same person

That First Amendment-bulldozing message came courtesy of Texas Commissioner of Education Shirley Neeley in Lancaster Aug. 3.

Neeley was speaking at the district's back-to-school convocation, less than one month after its school board had rejected managing Wilmer-Hutchins ISD.

Two months before that, when Neeley took control of the district from its board and scandal-tainted fired superintendent, Neeley filled the superintendency void with Lancaster's assistant superintendent, Eugene Young.

At the Aug. 3 convocation, Neeley said she had picked him in part because she knew he was a man of God.

Gee, I didn't know that was on the job requirement list.

You really can't trust Bush's bottom line

First, he vows to fire anybody in the White House leaking in the Plame case. Then, he amends that to anybody convicted in the case.

First, this spring, when former Bush-as-managing-partner Texas Ranger star Rafael Palmeiro tells Congress he never, ever took steroids, Bush said he believed him. Then Raffy gets busted and claims he never knowingly took steroids and Bush said he believed him. Now, we find out that Raffy apparently took the same roid that disgraced and busted Olympic sprinter Ben Johnson did -- one that you simply can't get from dietary supplements and that's on the upper end of the potentcy scale.

Please, Shrub, tell us you believe him. Show just how much of a fricking liar, moron or both you are.
