Free Questions for Audience Members!

The White House announced this week that the President would be taking "unscripted" questions from audience members during his upcoming tour of speeches defending his secret domestic spying program.

Here at TWDQ, we're offering up these questions free as a public service:

You promised to fire anyone involved in the leak of Valerie Plame's identity. Why then is Karl Rove still working at the White House?

Please explain why you thought a FISA court wouldn't give you a warrant to wiretap terrorists.

Why did you say no one could have anticipated the levee breaches in New Orleans when Homeland Security was warned about that the day before Hurricane Katrina made landfall?

Halliburton has been accused of knowingly supplying contaminated water to our troops in Iraq. Will you be asking Attorney General Gonzales to open an investigation?

It's been over four years since September 11, 2001. Why haven't we captured Osama bin Laden?

You sure take a lot of vacation. How freaking much brush can there possibly be at your ranch?

And there's this personal favorite, which worked pretty well the last time someone asked it:

Sir, at long last, have you left no sense of decency?

They're free, free, free. If you manage to find your way to the microphone at one of these little shindigs, ask away with our blessing!

One of These Things is Not Like the Others

From a glance at Yahoo News's Top Stories from AP section this afternoon, here's this week's discussion question:

Which one of these is not like the others?

* Iran Threatens to Block U.N. Inspections
* Forensic Clues Could Explain Mine Disaster
* Alaska Volcano Erupts Third Time in a Week
* Tyco to Split Into 3 Cos. at Cost of $1B
* Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Visit Haiti

Please keep the discussion civil and do not wander off into "What? Nothing more about the sobbing Mrs. Alito?" or "This must be a definition of top that I was not previously aware of."

Mama Weer All Crazee Now

Today's comment from Pat Robertson linking Ariel Sharon's stroke to God's wrath is the subject of This Week's Discussion Question:

Why isn't there a National Registry of Lunatics Who Are Not Allowed on Television?

Please keep the discussion civil and do not wander off into "Hey, I've already got a list they can use to get it started!" or "How long would Fox News Channel have to air an 'Experiencing Technical Difficulties' disclaimer before they could restaff?"
