Comment: Dear George,
I've had a great idea for a comedy sketch reguarding what makes a Democrat
vs.a Republican.you touched on it briefly
during your latest HBO special.
[briefly]you see...during high school and collage when Pussy was mentioned
nearlly every other word,etc.....
The future liberals were being formed....they were the ones "gettin
down&funky"...play'n with,chewin on,and gettin
into some of that fine[and sometimes not so fine,Pussy]Etc.
The future conservatives however where being formed a differant way....all
they could get their mouths on was a beer can...and all you have to do is
look at those lame ass mother****ers and its very obvious...[even with a
room full of hookers]Rumsfeld,would try with his glasses&black socks
on,with no results, Newt Gingrich would be masterbating furously,with a
half limp dick,Carl Rove would be cowering in a corner unable to take his
clothes off,Dick Cheny couldn't get it up[thats where that sinister look
was born]and Geo.W would be wearing a gay cowboy orgy outfit and a large
black dildo.....Etc,etc...[theres more]
I'm your age,a product of the 60's...similer problems like you with coke&
booze etc...was a TV Commercial Film Director for 25yrs.New
York,Mexico,and Hollywood,,, before becoming an Artist,20+yr's ago.

P.S.I was born in Hollywood,but now live in CT,near the Gard theature in
New London,where you sometimes perform,maby we can get together...
Please have someone contact me letting me know that you got this
e-mail....LATER

Comment: hello, Please dis-regard the rumors ! Jealousy is every where.
The reason I was contacting you is that last year we put down new wood
floors all over our house. I have since been using the swifter wet cloths
and I just wanted to tell you that I absolutely love them . They are
convenient and do a nice job. I to have a dog and 2 cats and nothing is
wrong with them. And my floors are always clean thanks to you. I was
actually going to ask you if you can send me some coupons for the swifter
wetcloths. Thank you keep up the good work. Any coupon would be appreciated as we are

If nothing is wrong with the dog and two cats why buy a swifter. A correctly inserted pole can save you time and money.
Pets no longer part of the problem, but part of the solution.

Comment: re: Pregnant Pause

Dear Mr. Joe Kennedy,

I am an avid reader of your website and thank you for a critical and
interesting look at today's facts and fallacies. The intention in this
letter is only to provide a (possibly) different angle to help promote the
critical thinking of your readers. When my wife became pregnant, she
smoked nearly two packs of cigarrettes a day. Her intitial decision was to
quit smoking immediately and when she consulted a doctor about her options
he actually told her not to quit but to cut down to at most half a pack a
day. He informed us that quitting completely could result in a miscarriage
and that cutting down would prepare her to quit at the end of the
pregnancy. I don't know if all doctors would give the same advice but it
provides an interesting angle to the "smoking pregnant women is hypocrite"
reaction to the photograph. Once again, thank you for this quality
website. I look forward to reading it everyday.

Comment: To the California Border Patrol:

New technology makes it possible to remotely (through any surveillance
camera) identify and establish whereabouts of individual crossing the
border. Then, even if the person is successful to illegally enter the
country, it would find Him/Her quickly anywhere in the USA. To activate
this "Border Watchdog" the motioncodes chip need to be inserted to the
surveillance cameras. This is totally robotic system doesn't require human
supervision. Please contact us for details
