Tiger "Slappy" Woods Update
Subject: Tiger Woods...opinion
I understand your opinion, but disagree
to some extent.
Tiger Wood's is typical of today's athletes.
No matter which one you name, they are existing in an environment today
built on the hardship of their forefathers. But so am I.
I am of Irish decent.
Would your opinion be that I should somehow
give something back
to the Irish community, because of the sacrifice of the early Irish miners?
If the GOP was violently anti-Irish,
If an Irishman was dragged behind a pickup last year,
If Irishmen were regularly lynched in your daddy's lifetime,
If Irishmen weren't allowed on golf courses when you were born,
and you became the best golfer in history and did what Tiger has done,
your name would be "Slappy" Skisics and I'd never let up on you.
Tiger is Uncle OJ Watts.
He's accepted in whitey's club for one reason only:
He's good at his sport.
Do you think Uncle OJ would be accepted without a football?
Would whitey accept Tiger without his putter?
Tiger could take a stand and push race relations forward, but
He's too busy whoring for more and more and more money.
He had a chance to make a statement about the Slaver Flag in Carolina,
but he didn't want his money niagra to dry up, so he passed.
He's a multi-million dollar whore and a coward.
Tiger's place is unique.
Nobody in history has had this opportunity before.
There are STILL golf courses with a "no blacks" policy.
Has Golden Boy ever addressed that?
Or would that interfere with his third hundred-million dollar payday?
Paul Begala Shoots the Bull
On today's Supreme Court school prayer ruling...
Separating church and state is a profoundly conservative idea.
I'm intrigued by
people who don't think the government is sufficiently competent to write a health
insurance plan, but is competent enough to write a prayer; that government can't
be trusted to save lives, but can be trusted to save souls.
The real conservative position, it seems to me, is to keep prayer
leaving it in the hands of parents and priests and preachers.
George W. Bush's pre-fab candidacy is being packaged by some of
sharpies on Madison Avenue. One of them, Jim Ferguson of the New York ad
agency Young & Rubicam told USA TODAY they are selling "Brand Bush" the
same way they sold McDonald's. With Bush, like McDonald's, "you know what
you're going to get when you get there." Yes you do, amigo. You're right there.
Bush IS just like McDonald's:
pre-packaged, filled with empty calories and controlled by corporate interests.
A caller just asked Rush why he hasn't mentioned.
Rush said, "I have no comment on whatever's on the Drudge Report
because I haven't heard anything back from ABC yet."
Are you claiming might be wrong?
You've never admitted that before, Rush.
When Drudge has something snotty to say about Clinton, you don't wait
for any kind of confirmation - you scream the rumor to 500 radio stations.
Which reminds me...
Remember what Rush said about Imus?
Rush said Imus was the most honest and on-target radio DJ ever.
He went on and on about Imus the Legend and Imus the Honest.
Then, Imus said Porky was a fat , lying bastard, so Rush declared,
"Imus is always honest and correct EXCEPT when he's talking about me!"
It happened with Bob Woodward, too, but in reverse.
When Woodward wrote his Watergate book, Pigboy said it was
"full of lies and distortions" and he said Woodward was a no-talent hack.
Then Woodward wrote a book claiming William Casey gave him a
deathbed interview and Rush ridiculed Woodward, calling him a
"no-talent hack and the biggest liar to ever write a book."
Woodward wrote a book about Clinton, and lo and behold,
Woodward was suddenly the Mother Tersa of honesty and accuracy.
Gee, it's almost like Rush is the one lying.
Rush likes to cherry-pick his authors and his lies.
This time, Rush wants us to think,
is all wrong.
He's telling us, "You can't trust Drudge."
Thanks for telling us what we knew back in early 1998.
Challenge Update (see Santa, below)
Well, interesting challenge...however, i'm
not interested in playing any
games with you. i just had a piece to say and said it, and don't need to
prove it any further.
We can argue all day and nite, over what
ever Rush says
(for whom i don't particularly care.....why do you go after Rush anyway? he's too easy)
My frustration continues.
Here's how it works:
1. Rush, the lying pig bastard strings together
a series of mean-spirited
and shit-for-brains lies and distortions on the radio every day.
2. I call him on it.
3. A right-winger writes to me to complain.
4. I challenge the right-winger to speak for Rush so we can battle.
5. The right-winger says, basically "I can't defend Rush."
The Internet is a hueueueueuege mother-effer.
There must be millions of Rush wannabees on the www,
but they're all hiding like that coward at rushonline.com
Santa, here, can't be expected to defend
Rush if he doesn't like him,
but how many more years must I wait to find a Rush fan?
Rush and his idiotic pretend-rants can't
be defended by ANYONE.
That's why Rush can't take unscreened calls.
That's why Rush can't go on a talk show with non-ditto guests,
because he might have to defend that crap he spews.
Rush is pure bullshit, just like the Republican Party.
Santa asks why I go after Rush.
Rush is the leader of the Republican party.
He has more power than Delay or Lott.
I don't attack the Pigboy because he's a radio clown.
I attack him because millions of people believe he's God.
The Idiot-Clowns Finally get one Right.
Justices uphold prayer ban at
Public support for pre-game activity doesnít sway court
WASHINGTON, June 19 ó Ruling in a case thatís become an issue
on the campaign trail, the Supreme Court on Monday finally pulled their head
out of their collective asses and struck down a Texas public school policy of
student prayers before football games.
Smirk has strongly supported the practice. The 6-3 ruling, the most
school prayer decision in nearly a decade, said such prayers violate the
constitutionally required separation of government and religion.
Two hours into Pigboy's show today,
and all he can talk about is Tiger "Slappy" Woods.
He had about 3 minutes to scream at Richardson for the hard drives,
but other than that it's nothing but praise for the great, white golfer.
The most nonsensical bullshit-o-rama, perhaps,
ever to come out of the mouth of the Methane Factory.
"Tiger wins because he's on a higher plane.
Tiger lives and breathes the game.
I'm a great golfer myself.
Tiger this, Tiger that.
Tiger dissed Clinton's invitation to the White House.
Have I told you lately that I'm great?
Tiger doesn't use hyphens.
All the other golfers are jealous.
Tiger is one of the good ones.
Tiger this, Tiger that."
How long before Tiger and Smirk play a few rounds?
Makes me want to fucking hurl...

This caused a full scale alert in my man spider-sense. As they taught us in

I can even put the situation in a sports analogy. The "contract
centered on her hinting at "free agency." I, in my secret life as general
manager, put forth my best offer and brought up the point that her statistics
and performance had fallen off, and, an unconditional release might result
before free agency. We then agreed to table the matter and meet again at the
all-star break. When I first met her she was still "virga intacta."
That is so twentieth century I thought.

ABC: 'NO CONTRACT' FOR VULGAR PIGBOY ON MNF
ABC-TV has decided not to extend an offer to radio whore Pigboy to become
color commentator of its MNF franchise, the FUDGE REPORT has learned.
Pigboy, who has whored millions of dollars for ABC's radio stations
with his daily
rlitany of lies, was thwarted at the top levels of DISNEY, according to sources.
DISNEY head Michael Eisner said last week that ABC "would not be hire
But Eisner added, "the possibility of guest spots should be investigated."
"It would have been great fun, not only for me personally, but for the
network and its
advertisers," a senior ABC source said over the weekend. "Quite frankly, Drudge,
the decision was not based on economics, it was based on politics."
The editor of the New York Whore Times must be out of the country,
because an unflatterring article on Smirk was printed this weekend.
GW Bush Has Defined Himself, Unforgettably,
As Shallow And Callous
by Anthony Lewis
BOSTON-There have been questions all along about the depth and
of Smirk. They have been brought into sharp focus now by a surprising issue:
the way the death penalty is administered in Texas. In his comments on that
subject Smirk has defined himself, unforgettably, as shallow and callous.
In his five years as governor, the state has executed 131 prisoners
-- far more than any other state. Mr. Bush has lately granted a stay
of execution for the first time, for a DNA test.
In answer to questions about that record, Governor Bush has repeatedly
that he has no qualms. "I'm confident," he said last February, "that every person
that has been put to death in Texas under my watch has been guilty,
and has had full access to the courts."
That defense of the record ignores many notorious examples of unfairness
in Texas death penalty cases. Lawyers have been under the influence of
cocaine during the trial, or been drunk or asleep. One court dismissed a
complaint about a lawyer who slept through a trial with the comment that
courts are not "obligated to either constantly monitor trial counsel's
wakefulness or endeavor to wake counsel should he fall asleep."
This past week The Chicago Tribune published a compelling report on
investigation of all 131 death cases in Smirk's time. It made chilling reading.
In one-third of those cases, the report showed, the lawyer who represented
the death penalty defendant at trial or on appeal had been or was later
disbarred or otherwise sanctioned. In 40 cases the lawyers presented no
evidence at all or only one witness at the sentencing phase of the trial.
In 29 cases, the prosecution used testimony from a psychiatrist who
-- based on a hypothetical question about the defendant's past -- predicted
he would commit future violence. Most of those psychiatrists testified without
having examined the defendant: a practice condemned professionally as unethical.
Other witnesses included one who was temporarily released from a psychiatric
ward to testify, a pathologist who had admitted faking autopsies and a judge
who had been reprimanded for lying about his credentials.
Asked about the Tribune study, Governor Bush said, "We've adequately
innocence or guilt" in every case. The defendants, he said, "had full access to a fair trial."
There are two ways of understanding that comment. Either Governor Bush
contemptuous of the facts or, on a matter of life and death, he did not care.
At the heart of the problem is the Texas way of providing lawyers for
too poor to hire their own, as most are in death cases. There is no state system.
Judges assign lawyers -- often lawyers who have contributed to their election campaigns.
"The State of Texas is a national embarrassment in the area of indigent
a committee of the State Bar of Texas says in a report just approved. Again, Smirk
has shown no concern about this reality. He vetoed a bill, passed by the legislature,
that would have let Texas counties set up a limited public defender program for the poor.
Capital punishment, long favored by a majority of Americans, has become
issue again because of concern about the fairness of its administration. Gov. Ryan of
Illinois, a Republican, imposed a moratorium on executions in that state after 13 men
on death row were shown to be innocent. Pat Robertson and other conservatives
have called for a national moratorium.
The most complete study ever done of the death penalty process, by Prof.
Liebman and others at Columbia University, was published the other day. It showed that
two-thirds of death convictions or sentences were upset on appeal for such reasons as
incompetent defense lawyers or prosecutors who bent the rules.
To all this George Bush is seemingly indifferent. Or perhaps not entirely.
If he were not
running for president, it is doubtful that he would just now have granted his first stay of
execution. Next week Gary Graham, convicted of murder on the testimony of a single
witness who said she saw him at night from 30 to 40 feet away, is due to be executed.
Will Smirk care?
Subject: Tiger Woods in Rush's 'Merica
I was nice to see Tiger win the U.S. Open.
Got me to thinkin':
In Rush's America, Tiger Woods wouldn't
be allowed on
the greens, unless he was trimming or cutting the grass.
In Rush's America, if the police saw Tiger
Woods with a club in his hand...they'd shoot him.
Sorry, that's Giuliani's New York, my mistake.
In Rush's America, Tiger Wood's dad could
be arrested for 'breeding outside of his race'.
In Rush's America, Tiger Woods would have to be content cleaning houses or other menial jobs.
Luckily, we live in an America where Democratic
President's have worked hard
to make sure the phrase 'All Men Are Created Equal' has meaning.
There's no denying his talent.
The ball falls in the hole when Tiger hits it.
But it pisses me off that I'll have to hear how great he is for decades to come.
Unluckily, Tiger Woods, the multi-millionaire Clinton-hater, has
an icon for the right-wing about how "equal" blacks are now.
I have nothing but disgust and contempt for Mr. Woods.
He has abandoned any pretense of being a hero to black people.
He's as white as any man who ever walked a golf course.
He has become whitey's pet negro.
Tiger doesn't seem to understand the sacrifices of those who came
He seems to think blacks have acheived equality because HE has.
Remember those two black runners in the 1968 Olympics who raised their fists
when they received their medals to protest the way blacks were treated in America?
Tiger Woods is the exact opposite of that.
Somebody needs to buy Tiger Woods a history book.
Tiger had a chance to make a statement in Carolina earlier this year.
He chose not to make that statement.
After all, HE made it with talent and hard work,
so maybe he feels other blacks are just talentless and lazy?
Tiger's on that same traitor list as Russ Feingold, George Stephanopolous,
Juan Williams, Maryland's Governor Glendenning (sp - I don't care)
Mike McCurry, DeeDee Myers, and the other back-stabbers.
How much you want to bet, before the year's over,
Tiger and the vulgar Pigboy are seen laughing it up on a golf course?
Rush could use a man like Tiger Woods.

Bush Flies into an Air Force
Once again, we must go outside of Texas to get news critical of Bush..
Why is the Texas press giving him a free ride?
George W Bush, was suspended from flying as a young pilot for
failing to takea medical examination that included a drug test.
Documents obtained by The Sunday Times reveal that in August 1972, as
flyboy in the Air National Guard, Bush was grounded for failing to take a medical exam
that would have indicated whether he was taking drugs.
Rumors of cocaine use and "lost weekends in Mexico" have plagued Bush
for months since he declared himself a candidate in the presidential race.
With character an election issue, the latest revelation is certain to
in Bush's past. Yesterday it provoked accusations by Democrats of a cover-up.
While he has consistently admitted to a "misspent youth", Bush has evaded questions
about cocaine or other drug use, implying only that he has not taken illegal substances
since 1974, the year after he left the Air National Guard.
Allegations about his stint in a reserve unit at the height of the Vietnam
war are likely
to provoke parallels with Bill Clinton, whose early presidential candidacy was mired in
accusations of draft-dodging and questions of whether he inhaled marijuana as a student.
Bush was not required to face drug tests when he first entered the reserve
as a Yale graduate in 1968. It was only at the end of 1971 that the US Air Force
introduced a drug-screening policy. In April 1972 the Pentagon implemented a
drug-abuse testing program that required at least one random drug test every year.
The code stated that personnel must undergo the medical in the month
birthday. For Bush, this meant August. In May, the young airman moved from his
Air Force training base in Houston to Massabama.
To avoid constant travel, he applied to move his training program from
to Dannelly Air Base in Montgomery, Alabama, but he never arrived.
William Turnipseed, a retired general who commanded the Alabama unit at the time,
said Bush never appeared for duty. Two commanders at Ellington air force base in
Houston said in his record they were unable to perform his annual evaluation covering
the year from May 1, 1972 to April 30, 1973. "Lt Bush has not been observed at this
unit during the period of this report," they wrote.
Veterans claim Bush has not been shy in extolling the virtues of
his flying career despite not being backed up by his record.
Today, Fox Whore News accidentally let this slip on the air.
Gee, I wonder what was wrong with the 9AM version?
Did that lying shit Juan Williams accidentally tell the fucking truth?
That might've angered Mr. Murdoch, and jeopardized his kid's education.
You remembered the last time Fox News pulled the old switcheroo?
They started out saying, "Elian REMOVED from Miami relative's home."
When the hateboys got to the office it suddenly changed to
"ELIAN SEIZED IN RAID ON RELATIVE'S HOME,"
because Fox News didn't think " removed " would cause a riot,
so they changed " removed " to "seized in raid" trying to incite one.
"Seized in Raid"
is so much more incendiary than a mere " removed,
and after all, they ARE in the business of being whores.
I sure wish we could get a look at the version they're hiding from us.

Always good to hear from the Dark Side.
A. Assuming you think the death penalty

why don't we use it for car theft, burglary, pot possession, bad credit,
running stop signs and every other problem society has?
If it's a deterrent, wouldn't we live in a perfect society
the very day the Cro-Mags push that bill thru and Smirk signs it?
If it's your position the mere threat of harsh punishment will stop
murderous behavior, wouldn't it stop lesser forms of crime, too?
B. Maybe that's what Novak meant,
but that's not what he said.
He said children, education and the environmentwere "good things,"
and if you agreed with government spending money on them,
you should vote for Gore.
C. do you believe in "the leftist
If you did, I thought of a little game you and me could play:
Let's agree on a day in the future, say this Wednesday.
I'll pick an hour of Rush's show, in advance, and you pick an hour of
any show you consider to be "leftist media," and we'll compare notes
on Thursday to see which hour included more lies and more hate.
Ok, I'll take the first hour of Pigboy Wednesday the 21st.
Before then, get back to me with which hour you're picking.
(You can pick two halves if you want.)
If this works, maybe next week I'll take Hannity and you can pick
liberal-slanted show and we'll see who's spreading the lies and the hate.

Besides Bill Clinton, who would you say is your favorite historical figure
(George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, etc)?
Hmmmmm.... Richard Pryor.
He was lucky to be the funniest man in the world at a time when VCRs
were introduced and things like cable TV and satellite hook-ups were making
instant communication a reality to millions of people at once.
This was when racism was starting to wither on the vine.
Richard Pryor would go on Ed Sullivan and connect with the same audience
that the Beatles reached and he would do regular jokes and - race jokes.
Did you know the first time the Beatles played the Ed Sullivan
discrimination in America was still legal? A black family could be told,
"Out of my store, nigger," and that was absolutely legal.
A couple of years ago I found out that in the south, some restaurants
white menu and a black menu. If a black couple came in, they'd see a menu
that had $3 hamburgers when the white menu had fifty cent hamburgers.
One of the first race jokes I ever heard him do was something
about a white
couple left their seats to get popcorn and when they came back, black people
had taken their seats and they were too afraid to ask them to move.
Pryor did the white people's reactions and the black reactions and I think that
was the fist time the masses thought about that from each point of view.
You didn't do things like that on television.
While I'm on the subject, let me say something nice about a guy
I've had some negative things to say about - Frank Sinatra.
Back in the fifties, racism was much more common than in the sixties.
So here comes Frank Sinatra and his negro friend Sammy Davis Jr.
And the nightclub owners and the casino owners would say,
"We love you Frank, but lose the nigger," and Frank would say, "No."
The way the story goes, (I wasn't there) Frank told them if they wanted
him, they had to let Sammy eat in their restaurant, sleep in their hotels
and play on their stages and in their casinos. That took balls.
I know Frank was no angel, and they say he was the queen bitch
but Frank was big on loyalty and he stuck with Sammy.
Now, Frank was never on my top 50 list of people to meet,
and I can't take anything away from Washington or Lincoln,
but I see Richard Pryor as a historical figure so I'd pick him.

BartCop Medical Minute
Bob Lancaster's column from the Arkansas Times
Q. My place is overrun with ticks this year. What is the current
about the proper way to remove one of them?
A. There's no good way to do this, especially if you and a partner
romantically involved at the time of the creature's discovery. The only
consensus at the moment seems to be regarding the tick removal method
formerly recommended by practically all the authorities --touching a
hot match to the embedded tick's rear end. Practically every one of those
same authorities now says you should never, ever do this. Apparently ticks
evolved thicker, heat resistant rear ends to thwart the procedure, and
holding the match closer for a longer period of time doesn't overcome the
adaptation; instead, it tends to cause the tick to explode, and this can
complicate your situation rather seriously and also gruesomely.
I have a contribution to make at this point. I've found a foolproof
way to rid
yourself of ticks. Just get in your car around noontime, roll down a window,
turn on the radio to Rush Limbaugh, and turn up the volume. If you have two
ticks on you or two hundred, they will turn loose and flee your person and
the car within a very short time. I don't know if it's the annoying voice or
the annoying philosophy; whatever, it will send many other varieties of
vermin skedaddling also.
Moose in Kansas City
It's none of my business,
but why is Diana Ross starting a 30-city tour if she's this pregnant?
Here we see Bill Gates auditioning for the part of Supreme Court
William Renquist in the Fox News channel's made-for-TV docu-drama,
"Raped by the President - Based on a true story by Juanita Brodderrick."
Subject: Russ Fiengold
I'll defend Russ to the end. He is
perhaps the only member of
congress who can honestly claim to an independent. You might want to
review his last campaign; Strangely, he actually practiced what he preached,
accepting no soft money, and following the rules he and McCain had proposed
earlier in the year. Of course 'campaign finance reform' was defeated,
but he, being a stand-up kinda guy, still managed to follow them (the afore
mentioned rules), despite intense pressure from the DNC not to. This
honesty/integrety almost cost him the election. Every once in a while, I
suppose, the electorate manages to see through the barrage of advertising, and
pick the more deserving of candidates, this was definately one of those times.
You might want to check out his voting record as well.

I admire loyalty.
You say Feingold can honestly claim to be an independent?
I guess he can.
He was certainly independent of the Democratic party during impeachment.
Maybe Ol' Russ is everything you say, but to me, even thirty years from
he'll always be the Democrat who voted to continue to play with the evidence
when his country desperately wanted the Congress to move on.
...and what did Clinton do?
What was Clinton's reaction to Feingold's knife in the back?
He said, "That's OK. Russ was voting his conscience."
That's 200 times more forgiving that I would've been.
I would've flown to Milwaukee in my big, blue jet and campaign for some hot,
young Democrat running against Feingold and retire Ol' Russ forever.
Clinton is a lot better man than me.
Elton John Blasts Scottish Cardinal Over Gay Views
LONDON (Reuters) - Pop legend Elton John
attacked the leader of Scotland's
Roman Catholics Thursday for his ''ignorance'' over homosexuality.
"Cardinal Winning and his ignorance, is totally
representative of why people are turning
away from the Church,'' John wrote in this week's edition of The Spectator magazine.
The singer was responding to an article
written by Cardinal Thomas Winning in which
the priest said homosexuals were ensnared in ``a lifestyle that can never respond
to the deepest longings of the human heart.''
"As a gay man I am perfectly happy with my sexuality
and my life,'' wrote the singer.
"I can honestly say that the deepest longings of my heart are satisfied.''
John said he was astonished to be getting advice from a celibate individual
Elton, don't kid yourself.
Subject: Gore & the Internet
Actually... the Internet itself has existed
since 1969 or 1970, created by
the Department of Defense for faster communication in times of crisis.
It was made available to universities sometime between then and 1989 or so...
I think what Gore set in motion may have
been an item designed to
improve the existing technology and make it available to the public at
large, paving the way for existing companies like America Online and
Prodigy and Compuserve to eventually become Internet providers, as well
as the startup of all the independent ISPs.
So, while the Internet existed before Gore's
efforts, it seems he was
important in making it possible for all of us to be here and doing this now. :)
"I am so stupid!"
(Think Chris farley)
I should've posted the whole story, because I wasn't familiar
with it myself.
The way I understand it, and fuck knows it's every man for himself since
the whore media can't be counted on to anything but shill for higher ratings,
Gore authored legislation to convert a tool that academics and the Pentagon
used into the biggest thing in the history of communications.
I'm not saying "nobody else could've done it."
I'm not saying Gore wrote the first line of code.
I'm saying what he said:
Gore took the initiative in creating the Internet.
Somebody had to - we're lucky it was Gore.
