Jack Ryan, Meet Bill Clinton

Jack Ryan watched his young career as a Senate candidate go up in smoke because the Chicago Tribune sued to bust the seal on his divorce papers from his wife, the “Star Trek” actress Jeri Lynn Ryan. In the papers, Mrs. Ryan asserted that her husband pressured her to have sex with him in public in swinging sex clubs.

Republicans wanted him gone.

He had lied to conservative journalists and GOP supporters alike when he said there were no potential skeletons in his closet. Republicans wouldn’t stand for that.

Bill Clinton now claims a “badge of honor” because independent counsel Kenneth Starr made an impeachment referral to the House of Representatives alleging he had lied under oath and obstructed justice.

Lollapalosers

Popular Summer music festival Lollapalooza 2004 has been cancelled due to “poor ticket sales across the board”, according to the tour’s website.

Lollapalooza founder, Perry Farrell expressed regret at the cancellation, saying “It breaks my heart that thirty obscure acts, virtually unknown to the concert-going public, cannot go out and shovel money into our coffers.

Who wouldn’t want to do that?”

According to tour co-founder, Marc Geiger, poor ticket sales weren’t the only factor in the cancellation. “I blame Bush.” When asked to elaborate, Geiger stated “Um, Bush and Iraq. Fascists. Patriot Act. Ashfield. Oil. Downloading!”
