    A new internet search engine, funded by the Chinese communist government and endorsed by former President Bill Clinton, hopes to challenge Google even though it lacks the search leader's most admired feature -- the 'I'm Feeling Lucky' button.

"Out of respect for President Clinton, we decided not to offer a 'Feeling Lucky' button," said an unnamed Accoona spokesman. "We didn't think it sounded very presidential." Accoona executives are said to be considering Mr. Clinton's suggestion for a button that would...

So after Ahhnie screws California royally and the nation sees what corrupt fools W and the repuggies are, the Democrats will take control of the nation again for 40 years. Hasta La Vista baybee
