Sometimes it is good to laugh

Once again our erstwhile vice President provides us with a little humor:
Halliburton announced on Friday that its KBR division, responsible for carrying out Pentagon contracts, experienced a 284 percent increase in operating profits during the second quarter of this year.

The increase in profits was primarily due to the Pentagon's payment of "award fees" for what military officials call "good" or "very good" work done by KBR in the Middle East for America's taxpayers and the troops. (emphasis added)

The only thing that would be funnier would be a short circuit in his defibrillator. Dick does look a little wan here.

Finally you post something positive. That's good news. The folks at Halliburton should be proud of their hard work.

Yep--good for Halliburton. Their shareholders should profit from the hard work of the company and its employees (who are also profiting) under dangerous conditions.

And thank goodness my children don't have to see this pediatrician in Easton (we live a bit north) who makes fun of the health of a good man.
