  2. Do you have people who help you plant ugly, false rumors about your competitors?

  3. How much would it take for you to sing this new song that Jim Inhofe just wrote, called "It ain't global warmin' that makes me hot near you?"

  4. Could you folks do a real quick Iraq tour before they close that place up for good?

  5. Anybody here ever met a guy named Abramoff?

  6. Anybody here ever met a guy called Cunningham?

  7. Does NSA help you guys tally up all those electronic votes, or is it them clowns from Dielbold?

  8. Any of you guys seen a tall, thin  Arab with one of them head dress thingies?
