We interrupt this regularly scheduled Carnival of the Mundane for this news bulletin...

WASHINGTON (FNN) -- On Monday, US President George W. Bush nominated Air Force General Michael Hayden to be the new CIA chief, sparking many to speculate that the reason for this controversial nominee has eluded public attention.

Fake News Network has discovered that the President does, in fact, have a hidden agenda. Specifically, the expected Senate focus on General Hayden will avoid otherwise vigorous scrutiny of the President's other nominees and appointees, which will be announced next Monday.

FNN has learned that President Bush has named the following nominees and appointees:

Only time will tell if the President's strategy will be a successful one. Nevertheless, the Senate will certainly be busy over the next few months.
