  • Johnnie Walker Blackened

    That would-be martyr John Walker--the mujahid of Marin County--has done something more than give a bad name to my favorite Scotch whiskey. He has illuminated the utter unfitness of our police and intelligence chiefs for the supreme power they now wish and propose to award themselves. And he has also accidentally exposed the stupidity and nastiness of the Patriot Act.

  • Rudy Giuliani, Triumphant

    So Rudy is the person of the year.
    We join the world in offering a cheer
    To him--a man, some thought, was sent by heaven
    To guide us through the shock of 9/11.

    A paranoid control freak's just what's needed.
