News Roundup for 3/11/10

Lie? Sure!

-Headline of the day-
"Report: Tiger Woods Hires Former Bush Adviser Ari Fleischer."

OK, you're in hot water for something you've clearly done. There's no denying it, you've really screwed the pooch (and a bunch of ladies, too). Who do you turn to? Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer, of course. Why? Because he's such a skilled liar that the White House press corps used to call him Ari "Lie? Sure!"

He sold everyone on the Iraq invasion, so he seems to be just the sort of guy who can get Tiger Woods out of the rough. Why, he'll probably even be able to get Brit Hume off Tiger's case.

Finally, a use for Ari -- spokes-liar to the stars. (Talking Points Memo)

-Cartoon time with Mark Fiore-
Hey kids, did you know that Democrats are trying to ram healthcare reform down everyone's throats? Sure, it's taking more than a year -- which kind of redefines the term "ramming speed" -- but they're gonna do it! And they'll do it with an evil plan called....

Majority Rule!

When a president gets reelected with 51% of the vote, he gets to claim a mandate. But when congress passes a law with 51% of the vote, it's an obscure parliamentary trick. (MarkFiore.com)

-Bonus HotD-
"Rove Says Bush's Life is Good."

Everyone else's sucks, though. (Political Wire)
