Also, do you want to see something really scary? Here's the results from One News Now's (formerly Agape Press) recent poll about how England should respond to their Iranian situation:

OMG, Brownback '08!!! The so-far results of their latest poll are funny, too:

Nancy Pelosi: scarier to some than Osama bin Laden.

How could you possibly have a better name for a website than Agape Press? It's all about the love! The good love of our bestest pal Jeebsus! One News Now will get shortened to ONN, which will remind the faithful of CNN and Onan. Liberalism and masturbation are NOT successful marketing tools for this particular demographic.

And from this disturbing lapse in judgment, we turn to our bestest REAL pal Ursula. She is the pinnacle of thoughtfulness with her guests.

"Yes, it's a scarf, little man, but I can use it to cover my head. You know, just in case you get frightened I might crush you, I'll just put the scarf over my head, and it will be just like you are with your mommy when you were a tiny, little boy!"

I dunno, nothing says 'impromptu picnic' like a wearable tablecloth.

I bet her handbag looks a little like a basket. Our diplomats are nowhere near as thoughtful.

I envision an alternate history, one where the Roman Empire was never sundered, and in fact is now the approximate size and shape of our European Union. In that possibility, our Ursula is a prominent Senator, a noble teutonic statesman of renown and great popularity. This picture (same in both universes) has her wearing her ceremonial Senatorial Toga (tm). Hail, Caesar!

I guess Ursula brings a whole new meaning to the question "Does the carpet match the drapes?"
