More election season headlines.

"The left wing British newspaper The Guardian is backing away from a column appearing to call for the assassination of President Bush, calling it an "ironic joke."

"On Saturday, columnist Charlie Brooker lamented an impending Bush victory that he said would bring "four more years of idiocy, arrogance and unwarranted bloodshed, with no benevolent deity to watch over and save us. John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley, Jr. -- where are you now that we need you?"

"The column has since been replaced on the Guardian's website by an apology calling Booker's comments -- quote -- "flippant and tasteless."

"WASHINGTON -- U.S. forces searched several times last year the Iraqi military base from which 380 tons of explosives vanished -- including one check a week before Saddam Hussein was driven out of power. But the military saw no signs of a huge quantity of munitions, Pentagon officials told FOX News."

Some head dweeb from the BBC was at Columbia University this week chastizing journalism students for -- get this -- how pro-Bush the mainstream media is. Of course, this is the BBC's idea of journalistic ethics (scroll down past the ad).

And just because it amuses me...

"KOMO-TV in Washington state reports that a school district in Puyallup has banned Halloween celebrations in part because witch costumes might offend local Wiccans."
