voltaire said "i dont agree with what your saying but i will defend to the death your right to say it" if a liberal wants to put a liberal link, let him do so, if a conservative wants to post something up him as well should do so. granted that it isnt untasteful humor. the next time (if ever) the democrats will be in power, i can almost garuntee there will be some links slandering them, its almost a sure thing it comes with the power. im not a liberal im not a conservative, i am however open to political humor without getting worked up on "how bias" these links are, if you find something funny about liberals and its tasteful post it. share the laugh with the community

He lost the popular vote, and he got in through technicalities. The big media tycoons and donors are republicans a lot of the media is actually in bush’s favor. If the public knew what was going there’d be a rise in social upheaval, theres so much that’s the public doesn’t know because the administration does not want to tarnish their record, and if there is any news of wats going theres obviously a big media spin. So your right disapproval would be higher if they knew what was going on. The only reason there is the a big deal about about cheney is…the vice president shot a dude, and hell you know media they’ll create a storm about anything, as long as it attracts viewers, and right now it’s a very hot topic. Stupid media, but democrats will be democrats, republicans will be republicans, and presidents and other members of the administration as long as they are in the administration will always be put into a satirical perspective,

davidson, Bush won both elections, despite widespread fraud perpetrated by Democrats and the media, so enough with that chestnut. Also, your 64 percent figure is only a job disapproval rating, which would be higher if the American public actually knew what the heck was going on. Still, if the Democrats really thought the majority of America hated Bush, don`t you think he would be gone by now?

beernotbombs, we are not fighting about the article in the Onion. We are arguing about the obvious liberal bias on i-am-bored.com.

Sure, presidential satire is to be expected, but this is ridiculous. Just Google Bush`s name and you`ll find millions of web pages ridiculing or lying about him. Don`t get me wrong here: I thought the Cheney incident was kind of funny until Whittington had a heart attack. I just think that nonstop coverage of a hunting accident is more than enough evidence to prove my (and jtc970`s) points.

I`m not stupid, I just thought the photocopier thing was funny. I can just imagine Cheney turning green and becoming all buff. Then he says "Cheney Mad! Cheney destroy! Cheney hurl photocopier at your a$s!"

it could in a way be true, but the way they said things was just weird.
oh and gypsycassie, are you saying that if i make jokes about you, theyre gunna be funny? ha.
and yes while i understand that Bush is pretty much the most powerful man in the world, and that its alot of the time funny. but it is just ridiculous that so much of the submitted content is in some way making fun of Bush, or Chritians/Christianity, or Conservetives in general. if there were less biased links, or submitted links that showed veiws from both sides and not just one, it would be a little more entertaining. of course, politics isnt a reason to just quit a site, so stay here but dont click any political links. there still may be a few left right?

"just dont like to see my president elected by the people twice"

elected after winning second place in the election...twice...and its 64 percent of the general population dont care much for bush... so wat if its not something you agree with, surfers discretion is advised, if you dont want to see it dont look at it, oh and by the way the onion is one of the various sites on the interweb that does not really have credibility. if your granny panties are being knotted up from it just get over it, your b**ching and moaning isnt gonna change peoples views, its just a satirical look at the government

The sad thing is, this story could easily have been true. With the current administration, it wouldn`t surprise me at all.

There`s a lot of anti-Bush links because he`s the most powerful man in the world. Powerful people get made fun of a lot in free societies. Deal with it.

Um, I think anything making fun of our president is funny, you know why? because he is ridiculous, and ridiculous people are funny, no matter what position they hold in our country. Besides, I didn`t vote for him, so I dont feel embaressed about him being in power, though those who voted for him should...

This article is a load bull poo. They said "possessed the capabilities and intentions to spray a senior citizen with projectiles fired from a shotgun or other weapon." WTF? That is freakin retarded. Cheney never meant to shoot his BEST FRIEND. Come on people, do you honestly think that the vice president would WANT to shoot his best friend? And he owned up to it. He didn`t shift the blame or anything. I think this article was made up, even though it is on an actual news site. And an even bigger load of crap is this - "The president routinely deals with any number of reports concerning the vice president`s assaults on our nation`s elderly, such as ear-biting, clubbing, or in one case, the hurtling of a photocopier". You can`t honestly tell me that our vice president hurled a photocopier. Anybody who believes this is a complete moron. I know that democrats love to bash Bush, true - he may not be a great speaker, but that doesn`t mean that he`s a terrorist. Come on, re

If you don`t like I-am-bored because it has too much politics, then don`t bother coming. There is no reason that we should have to put up with you complaining about it being left-wing or conservative, or racist. If you are complaining because it isn`t funny, I would understand, but you`re just being annoying.

I`m not a conservative, I have some very liberal views.
I just dont like to see my president elected by the people twice constantly bashed EVERYWHERE I look.
I started coming to I-am-bored because well, I was bored and thought thats what it was for.
You just admitted that half the link about Bush arent even funny, and you know most arent even entertaining. so why even add them to a site that is meant to entertain? Which is why I point out Fazed.com. They know how to entertain without injecting political crap links every single day.
And FRANCESUX, please, stop trying to insult people that dont agree with you, we get enough of that from the democratic party and Buddy.

^^it`s more anti-bush than it is anti-republican, and half of it is pretty funny, unless youre a diehard conservative like jtc or doppel with a giant stick up ur ass.

Thank you, jtc970. I`m glad to see that there are some vigilant people here.

fk, there is a big difference between not having a sense of humor and being able to identify the obnoxious. IAB has anti-Republican posts daily and you know it. The only reason you don`t agree with jtc`s comments is that you agree with and laugh at every "Bush is dumb" link on this site. Grow up.

Uhhh....fazed.net, populated by a "more mature group of people"?!?! LOL!!!! And jtc970, actually talking about *others* having a political agenda?! :-D

Oh my...needed to wipe a tear there. :-) But I digress. jtc970, let me be the first to take the pleasure of welcoming you out the door, if you feel buddy/IAB doesn`t do it for you. Please, feel free to find your place, and make your seemingly neverending, inane diatribes, elsewhere.
And that aside from how crass and brainless it is coming on to sites and actually recommending others *instead*. I mean no one is necessarily happy with every link here (I personally find the Family Guy clips have long worn out their welcome), but damn.

Anyway, don`t mean to interrupt. As you were...out the door and on to your bigger and better things (hopefully including a sense of humor, frankly). Please. :-)

I`m not suprised certain people would think it`s real, though.
