What has three heads and six legs? A frog found in England, that's what. Perhaps this is the result of super-science the likes of which produced Ookla the Mok from Thundar the Barbarian. What's more astonishing than the finding of the frog is that it was allowed to get away. Just another case of life imitating art.

And it looks like Shrub's goin' to the rodeo tomorrow. All part of the renewed effort to portray Bush as a regular dude (who went to the elite Phillips Andover boarding school, attended Yale, Harvard MBA, father was V.P., grandfather was a Senator....just the kind of guy you could have a beer with). Amazingly enough, Shrub still only has one hour to spend with the co-chairs of the 9-11 commission (though the WH concedes that Shrub won't walk out if there are still questions after an hour), and the Bushies still don't understand why their use of imagery in campaign commercials is inappropriate. Almost as galling is a tidbit noted in this passage:
Another less-publicized aspect of the ad flap: the use of paid actors—including two playing firefighters with fire hats and uniforms in what looks like a fire station. "Where the hell did they get those guys?" cracked Harold Schaitberger, president of the International Association of Fire Fighters, which has endorsed John Kerry, when he first saw the ads. (A union spokesman said the shots prompted jokes that the fire hats looked like the plastic hats "from a birthday party.") "There's many reasons not to use real firemen," retorted one Bush media adviser. "Mainly, its cheaper and quicker."
