Statue Of Liberty Being Sent Back To France

New York, New York - A blue ribbon commission appointed by President Bush has decided to tear down the Statue of Liberty, load it onto a merchant ship and send it back to France.

"The Statue of Liberty and what it represents no longer applies to the America of today," said Rudy Giuliani, a member of the commission. "We don't need the tired, poor and huddled masses. We need more Republicans. Besides, the Statue of Liberty is French."

Heading up the commission was Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia who agreed with Giuliani and also added, "Good lord, my four colleagues and I already spend far too much time keeping minorities from polluting our elections with their votes once they become citizens. We need to keep America for Americans. Screw the immigrants."

Immigration rights activists claim that the whole issue might be moot in a few years because of the Bush administration's failed economic policies which will send increasing numbers of Americans to Mexico in search of higher paying jobs.

hey there!

my name is meenakshi ravi. i work out of london with an indie production house. we produce a media analysis show for television and we're doing a piece about news satire. you website is witty and i like the fact that rather than just politics and current affairs, you are actually satirizing the news media iself. it's fun to see how people pick out the flaws and quirks of the media industry. i would love to hear your take on why you think the news media is so easy to spoof.

i wanted to email you, but couldn't get any contact on the home page. do mail me back at if you are interested in this and i can tell you more.

If Meenakshi wonders why the media is so easy to spoof, perhaps s/he isn't paying attention to the U.S. media. Most media outlets are not only self-serving, profit-driven thought manipulators, and they're biased in what they choose to report, what they leave out, and the way they try to influence opinion by the use of the adjectives used to describe people and events. Their goals have nothing to do with informing the public any more. What's not to love?

For another wonderful website satirizing politics and the media, check out It's new every Monday, and it's as good as this site.

btw, I wonder if England is accepting refugees from the USA?
