First person I saw was a black man.
What the hell are they trying to pull with...
Oh, that's right.
This is the Democratic Convention...
Next up was the lesbian mother of David Crosby's kids singing
the National Anthem.
Yep, this is definitely not the Republican party.
I didn't know Woody Guthrie wrote the National Anthem!
CNN ran a tobacco ad during the break.
Phillip Morris has so goddamn much money, they're bragging about spending
1.5 billion dollars to tell children not to use their product.
Then they promise "No more cartoon characters."
So you have been targeting kids all these decades that
you denied it.
You lies kill 400,000 people a year, but, since they don't have anything
to do with Clinton's cock, it's not a crime - so nevermind.
Candy Crowley (R-CNN) is covering this convention.
Will she be gushing with praise every few seconds?
Will every speech make her swoon?
No, this is a Democratic convention.
Candy's pants will remain dry tonight, that's for sure.
We won't hear anything but harping criticism from the Big Gulp!
I tuned in Fox Whore News to see if O'Reilly had a hooker
on like he did in Philly,
but he's not even on. Fred (more stupid than Chippy the Chimp) is on, instead.
John King (R-Unqualified) on CNN says Clinton will take Smirk to task
over claiming Clinton "squandered" his eight years in office.
Drop your pants, Smirk, ... 'em panties, too,
You're about to get a whipping like you've never had.
Oh, Mr Greenfield!!
is saying Hillary will spank Smirk, too,
accusing him of stealing that "No child left behind," crap from her!
First a spanking from Hillary, then perhaps a beating from Bill!
Bill (still smoking) Bennett is on MSNBC with Tim the Whore talking about Clinton's Cock!
Let go of his cock!
You've been grabbing at it for eight years.
Haven't you had your fill?
Then the next sentence out of lying lying mouth is,
"Al Gore doesn't make hearts go pitter-patter like Clinton does."
Does that mean you'll leave Pres Gore's cock alone?
Christie Brinkley on Fox Whores.
Damn, I wish she was attacking Clinton.
I have a lot of Christie Brinkley pictures :)
The Big Gulp is trying to mess with Harold Ickes.
Watch your ass, Big Gulp.
Harold Ickes doesn't suffer biased tramps well!
Tom Brokaw says Hillary's limo is pulling into the Staples Cemter!
Start squirming, Smirk!
CNN says 8-Wives will have Hillary on tonight!
8-Wives says Clinton will go on at 9:20 CST
Did you know Bill Bradley will be speaking tomorrow night?
He'd better deliver, too - none of this McCain "I'm a-scared of the future" bullshit.
Fox Whores have proof the GOP means what they say about minorities.
Of course, on the Fox Whore network, it's called "quotas."
The Democrats have 6 trans-gendered delegates.
Can't we discriminate just this one week?
Harold Ickes is battling the Angie Harmon lookalike Claire Shipman on MSNBC
When is something going to happen?
Just like the Demos to stall and stall and then run out of time...
How's Dennis Miller doing over on ABC?
Anybody watching the game till the headliners come on?
I'm taping it, I'll watch it later...
Rage Against the Machine is playing outside their front
Are they anti-Gore?
Hillary, on tape, on on 8-Wives right now.
Switching back to Fox Whores, they're STILL whining about the
the Demos use to include "those peoiple."
Hey, Fox and GOP - EAT IT!
Those people are Americans, too, even if they are black.
Where else but in the GOP would "including everybody" be a bad
...and they wonder why they can't win an election these days.
A quote from Brit Hume:
"Quotas, quotas, quotas, quotas, quotas," close quotes.
Hey, Brit, eat me!
Gore's daughters with Jimmy Page tonight on Leno!
Tom Brokaw just said Gore often asks his daughters their opinion.
(Smirk - note to self - ridicule Gore for that!)
Herrendo Revolver is doing a Vegas special right now on CNBC...
Cher is on Larry King, saying she voted for Perot in 1992, but
then she sang,
"If I could turn back time..." saying she wished she voted for Elvis Clinton, instead.
Wow, she's a quote machine:
"Look at Smirk, what he says is different from what he does.
Look what he did to Texas!"
If you're not rich, white & old, they can't use you.
If you're poor, black, gay, or anything that doesn't fit into their
rich white guy club, you've GOT to vote Democrat."
Boy, I sure am sober...
Tony Snow, working the floor like a newbie,
says the Demos are running 20 minutes behind.
Will they get Clinton on in prime time?
It'd be just like them to screw this up...
Mara Liason, harp, harp harp,
bitch, bitch, bitch,
whine, whine, whine
Jesus, she's scary...
We must be getting close.
Diane Feinstein is about the introduce the Jimmy Carter tribute.
He's the president who did NOT give Stinger missles to Iran.
Hillary back on 8-Wives - looking good!
Jimmy Carter tribute on MSNBC, and Fox.
CNN is too damn busy running commercials.
Jimmy carter - the last honest president.
And what did it get him?
Ridicule, hatred, scorn, more ridicule...
He proved honesty and politics don't mix.
Isn't it funny how each network will pull away from the convention
run commercials claiming THEY are the channel that brings the most
and best coverage, instead of simply covering the mother-effer?
Larry (the genius) King is breaking from Demo-Con
2000 to go to
Greg Lamotte so he can give us a tour of a Russian sub like the one
that's having troubles in the Bering Sea.
Good thinkin' Lar.
Of course, that's after ANOTHER round of commercials.
Screw this convention, right Larry?
Carville on MSNBC
"Clinton re-invented this party - moved them towards the center."
Tim the Whore's trying to pin him down, but carvill reminded Timmy
that Gore hasn't been to Bob Jones looking for love.
Timmy's getting smacked around - are you watching this?
Jesus, look at this crowd outside!
I smell a riot!
John Podesta (Chief o Staff) says Clinton is still writing his speech!
Do it without a script, Mr President.
Dare Smirk to do a speech without reading it!
Lisa Myers, not Bob Kerry.
Kerry just apologized for calling Clinton "a good liar"
"I was angry, it was one moment," he says - now!
Sorry, Senator, it';s too late for an apology.
You retired. You're out of the party.
You could've done the right thing in '95 and been a team player.
Your feeling were hurt, so you laid on the floor and threw a tantrum.
Tom Brokaw wants to know why Jesse Jackson called NY "Hymietown" back in 1936.
It's old news, Tom.
Why harp on ancient history tonight?
Is it the whore factor, Tom?
Is that why you'd bring that up?
If you're into the distant past, why not mention Iran-Contra?
Those were CRIMES Tom, not like an off-the-cuff anti-Jewish
but then again, I'm such an anti-Semite, what would I know?
Oh. Mr. Greenfield!!!
Sorry, couldn't resist.
What are the Demos waiting for?
Prime time is right here, right now!
No way Clinton will finish by 10PM.
They still have to do Hillary's speech,
then a "pro-Clinton demonstration" whatever the hell that means,
then a Clinton film, then some other time-wasting stuff.
The Master will come on about midnight.
Mr. Greenfield says Hillary will come on at 9:18
Barbara Boxer, one of (if not the only) Senators on my to-do list.
She looks good in blue, doesn't she?
She did good, too.
Tony the Newbie asked her if people were mad at Clinton for hogging the show,
and she said, "You press jerks are always whining! If he wasn't here, you shits
would try to claim he wasn't wanted. We can't win with you dirty slugs."
Go get 'em, Barbara!
What a whore!
Mara Liasson just said "Al Gore has Clinton Kooties!"
Swear to Koresh, she said it.
Why don't you go blow the exhaust pipe from a bus, OK?
Fred Barnes just said, "With Smirk, we may not have a roaring
but we will have honor and dignity restored to the White House."
They're already laying track for Smirk to fail.
...and now, a quote from Brit Hume:
"Buddhist Temple, Buddhist Temple, Buddhist Temple, Buddhist Temple,
Buddhist Temple, Buddhist Temple, Buddhist Temple, back to you, Tony!"
Hillary due up any minute...
The drama is building...
Toni Snow is reading Hillary's speech ahead of time, the
Looking like a hundred million dollars...
"We are stronger - we are better than we were in 1992"
Give us 8 minutes, we'll give you 8 years!
The most peaceful, prosperous time in our history!
Hillary is a lot better speaker than she was a year ago.
...for the children,
Right now, Marta is tying Rush to a chair for his own protection!
"Leave no child behind?"
She was nice not to call Smirk a thief!
Get 'em, Hillary!
"It takes a village!
It takes a Democrat!
It takes Gore & Lieberman!"
Look - they're doing the wave!
Equal pay for equal work!
(Is it too late to go with Clinton/Gore 2000?)
Smart women have always been very ...stimulating for me.
I think I'm breaking the 6th and 9th Commandments right now!
It's up to you, New York New York!
"Thanks for staying with us thru he good times, ...and the bad times" - excellent moment!
Are you ready?
Elvis is in the building!
This film is good, he's going to come out cooking.
Excellent idea, to remind this nation of ingrates that Clinton
so highly respected around the world - other nations wonder why
we've tried so hard to destroy this man who has given us so much.
Let's remember how we got here...
Here we go!
How bad was it, Mr. President?
What a list!
The GOP is reeeeeeeeeeal glad he's retiring.
I ran to change the future!!
Who passed the tie-breaking vote to ensure America's future?
Remember the bad shit the GOP predicted?
Time has NOT been kind to their predictions!!!
Ending with the most homes bought in history!
Hey, this guy's good!
He should run for something...
$5,000 annual increase for each poor family under Clinton!
Want to live like a Republican?
Vote for a Democrat!!
Did they really impeach this guy?
Is there really time to list all the good things that have happened under him?
Is anyone keeping count?
Boy, 1992 was a real shit-hole, wasn't it?
I'm so old, I remember 1992.
Now he's talking about our brave military men!
(I guess I'm showing my right-wing tendencies, again.)
Just the facts, Ma'am!
Are we better off than we were 8 years ago?
Make him stop!
It's not fair what he's doing to the Bush boy.
The Purpose of Prosperity?
Notice how politely he's kicking Smirk's ass?
We built our bridge, and we're not going back!
Can we hold the election this week?
Standing "O!" fore the best president of the last fifty years.
Tribute to Hillary - good move, Bill.
Hell, you might get a little something tonight :)
Now, the Gore tribute.
Hell, you might get a little something from Gore, too.
Like a pardon!
No, wait, ...that's right.
This was the felony-free administration - I forgot!
No pardon needed for this president.
He's a Democrat!
He just said something about "putting purpose above partisanship."
He had to tell a few lies tonight...
Boy, it's sad to think this his last big in-power address.
Look, now he's doing a skit with the crowd.
Tribute to Joel!
Tribute to blacks, tribute to the poor.
...go back to those Smirk-kicking lists, Bill.
"Turn this boat around..."
If he says, "In closing...." I'll just die.
Tribute to MLK and JFK - emotional stuff.
His voice is shaking, and my bullshit-meter isn't barking.
The promise of 1964, we have another chance.
My hair is grey, my wrinkles are deeper...
Please don't go, Shane...
whatever you think about me,
don't stop thinking about tomorrow.
NBC is reporting "major rioting" in LA,
but the other channels don't know anything about it.
What do you know, Mara Liasson said the speech sucked.
"He didn't help Al Gore tonight."
Michael Barone said, "He was trying to pretend he &
are still the young guys from 1992."
Did they rip Smirk's say-nothing speech this way?
Clinton showed Smirk what he could do with the word, "squander."
Rush and Fox and the GOP will tell you they'd looooove to run
but right now every smaret Republican is doing shots of Chinaco now that the
Clinton Monster has been felled by father time, not by anything they did.
I must be the only "pundit" in America that thought he did good.
Hillary had her best night ever in front of a camera, too.
They won't be admitting that, either.
Harold Ickes - there's some feedback!
Harold said he got a tear in his eye, remembering 8 years ago,
sitting in some hotel room somewhere with candidate Clinton,
and how goddamn far the country has come under his friend, Bill.
A shot of Chinaco for this great president!
I think I'm having a stroke...
Chris the Screamer just praised Bill Clinton!
He said the speech was easy to give because it
was the truth!
He said, "Nobaody can argue with the facts, we' ARE better off after Clinton."
When the fuck did Chris the Screamer start telling the truth?
Bill (always the whore) Bennett said he was "looking for something
Hey, asshole - what about the damn truth?
Don't you have ANY inclination to tell the truth?

Fox always books guests who can't fight back.
Remember what happened last time Joe Conason was on....
Can't have that for their budding star, Sean Hannity!
Gotta hire a cotton ball for Sean to scream at.
What a disgrace...
I'd better run now.
I already missed Jon Stewart, have to catch the repeat tomorrow at 6 CST.
Leno's on, he has some guests you might've heard of...
First, there's Jon Stewart, one of the consistently funniest guys ever.
Who else has his batting average?
And then there's the Gore daughters!
Koresh - we know Hillary and Bill kicked ass tonight.
You know Caroline will tear the place apart tomorrow night.
The Gore daughters are gonna introduce their Daddy, I think I heard,
So tonight, we get a peek at that young Gore girl magic!
Did you hear Smirk's claim that he wasn't gonna watch?
Swear to Koresh, Smirk's people said he wouldn't watch.
Smirk, if I was you, I wouldn't want to see it, either.
..and if that's not show enough for ya,
God is about to play his guitar.
Let's hope it's a good one.
...and remember, tomorrow might even be better!
Reaction is everywhere and consistent.

Even for Fox News (We Distort - You Deride),
this is a new low. They're
cutting to the demonstrations outside the Staples Center rather than comment
on the Prez's speech. Of course, the only comments they could make without
looking like morons would be admissions that "Clinton Fatigue" is bullshit,
and that Dumbellyu is damn lucky that the Big Guy can't run again.

As I write this (11:25PM EST), Fox has split
their screen, showing the cops
breaking up the RATM concert (Hume'll call it a riot, I'm sure) - the only coverage
like this on any outlet / everyone else is showing only the greatest President of the
past 50 years.
Fox News: You Decide.
I've decided: you suck.
Did you see Hillary's face when President
Clinton mentioned her?
She GLOWED! What a doll! You're right, she's a MUCH better speaker now,
I think this was the best speech she's given to date.
You're right, when President Clinton walked
into the hall, my Mrs. and I said
the same thing - Elvis Is In The Building! Have you ever been involved in
discussions like, who do you want in centerfield, Willie Mays or Ken Griffey, Jr?
Different eras, hard to decide.
But, if it was possible, I'd LOVE to have seen The Master rip St. Ronnie a new one.
Koresh, I'm going to miss this guy.
P.S. you're right about MM, he's an ass.
And you're right about Page, too.
Won't miss it for anything tonight, perfect topper after hearing Mr. President.
But I'm not hoping for "In My Time Of Dying," good though that choice is
- I'm hoping for "How Many More Times."
Sean, thanks for the note.
Last night's Tonight Show was one of the best I've ever seen.
I missed the monolog and the "Headlines," but Jon Stewart was on fire!
I think that's the best he's ever been, and he's always great.
He didn't just do the safe stuff, either.
His comedy was biting like he was a black comic.
He did gay jokes, he did Jew jokes, he was hell!
Leno usually back-and-forths with a comic at the desk,
but last night Jay just sat there and laughed along with the crowd.
Excellent, fresh stuff.
I can't wait to watch it again.
I semi-sorta caught the Gore daughters.
They seemed very at ease in front of the camera.
But then God came out.

I wish somebody who knew guitar would write a piece on how Page plays.
You COULD say he was all mistakes last night - but he wasn't.
He totally disregards key signature and time signature.
He plays "funny."
I don't know how the rythym section keeps up with him.
I guess they just play their 8 or 16 and hope Page is there
when the measure is over, or however you say that.
I played his incredible solo 6 or 8 times, trying to figure out
where the hell he's going, and I can't figure it out.
There's a real good chance he doesn't know either.
You can tell he starts to go somewhere, then changes his mind - a lot!
If you know the song, at the end of the solo he does a fade-in
that is some strangely-tuned mother. Seriously, if someone knows guitar,
send me the names of the chords he's playing in that song. He's doing some kind
of minor chord half-cousin with a suspended seventh and a mortgage on the ninth.
I've heard guitar players talk about page - he tunes "funny."
Instead of Every Good Boy Does Fine or whatever, it's a whole new set of tunings,
which I don't understand how his fingers and brain can do the math that fast.
I could upload the audio as an MP3, if anybody gives a damn.
Someday, I should tell the Zeppelin stories.
But I guess I should get out of the Mexican jail, first.

Really enjoyed the commentary. Don't see how you do it.
Bill hasn't left the stage yet and already every channel I've checked
except CBS was right back talking about Clinton's cock again.
Jeez, but I hate those bastards!
The media is worse than the republicans.
Subject: Clinton Speech
i just saw Clinton's speech; it was the verbal equivelent of mass
The man butchered the Republican Party, bitch slapped Butch, and made it look
easy. But i honestly think we haven't seen anything yet. i remember Gore's
speeches in '92 and '96; and, when i remember that in '92 Quayle wanted to
use quotes from Earth in the Balance out of context in order to brand Gore an
extremist during the VP debates, Gore offered to use as his prop at potato, i
almost feel sorry for Butch. In fact, they ought to just change the phrase
from bitch slapped to Butch-slapped.
The only thing Al has to worry about is if Pickles offers to give
him a ride
somewhere; i hear she's murder in a car.
$100 Million down the drain. How much money does this guy
have to lose
before they idiots that give it to him stop?
Drudge, the no-talent eggbeater, has this breathless headline:

I hope she choked a big one last night.

He's so afraid somebody might get interested in the Democrats.

Clintonís entrance alone eclipsed the entire
pathetic week in Philly.
The cheering is joyful.
Not like Philly.
In Philly, you could just sense the citizens
of Rome at the games gnashing their teeth,
wringing their hands, licking their lips, glaring, snarling in low tones, salivating in
anticipation of a feeding frenzy on copious helpings of juicy red meat.
They wanted scapegoats. Hateful, bitter,
resentful people who wanted red meat.
Body parts strewnÖ well, you know.
In L.A., itís the afterglow of magnificent
We voted for Clinton. Twice.
We were right. Eight great years.
I was watching CNN. Afterwards they didnít
want to comment on the speech,
disappointed as they were at its brilliance. Reluctantly admitted that it was pretty
damn good only after a preface of negative comments about Gore in the polls, etc., etc.,
blah, blah, blah.
How could Gore possibly live up to the standard
of this speech
(Duh. Who could? Why try?).
Novak, still trying desperately to cling to second place, claims that Reaganís 1980ís
debt-ridden economic recovery gets the silver medal, not the one in the 60ís Clinton
referred to: ďBut I tell you, President Clinton has never, uh, bothered playing loose
with the facts (sic). Thatís his trademark.Ē
Bunch of pricks.
I donít drink tequila, but Iíll make an
exception on election night
when Gore trounces that phony and the Dems get the House back.
Iíll get shitfaced if the Senate converts, too.
I'm with you on the shit-faced election night.
Be sure to get the good stuff, tho, and you may want to buy early.
I think a lot of people will be celebrating that night.
Paul Begala Shoots the Bull
Wow! President Clinton last night made the most powerful case
the repeal of the 22nd Amendment. He was the Master of the Game -- at turns
patriotic leader of the country, proud leader of the New Democrats, faithful
friend to his buddy Al, admiring husband of his wronged wife. Even his
detractors had to admit it was one of the great speeches of his life.
Needless to say, I loved it.
The GOP made an enormous strategic mistake in Philadelphia when
America has drifted these last eight years. (And faithful readers of this
space read it here first.) By picking a fight with President Clinton they
allowed him to devote the bulk of his speech to making -- and winning -- the
argument that the last eight years have in truth been a time of unparalleled
progress, made possible by President Clinton's leadership. This election is a
parallel to the 1960 presidential campaign, in which then-Vice President Nixon
was seeking to succeed the remarkably popular President Eisenhower, but he was
being challenged by the fresh-faced young Senator John F. Kennedy, who was
being accused of trading on his family's wealth and name. Here we have VP
Gore trying to succeed Clinton (the most popular second-term president of this
century) opposed by the fresh-faced Governor of Texas, who is being accused of
trading on his family's wealth and fame.
But while JFK went out of his way to avoid picking a fight with
saying at the 1960 Los Angeles convention: "As Winston Churchill said on
taking office some 20 years ago: If we open a quarrel between the present and
the past, we shall be in danger of losing the future." But, lacking JFK's
grace (not to mention his brains) Bush went out of his way to antagonize
President Clinton. This does not make strategic sense. Bush is doing it
because he's all wee-wee'd up about the fact that Clinton clobbered Poppy in
1992. Junior is out for vengeance. But all he did was awaken a sleeping
giant, giving POTUS license to open up a can of whoop-ass on the GOP.
Note to W: Be grateful you're not running against Clinton;
Don't bring him into this race, unless you want to lose.
Tonight's lineup features Democratic legends Sen. Edward M. Kennedy,
JFK's daughter Caroline), Rev. Jesse Jackson, and Bill Bradley. Thus proving
that, although the Clinton-Gore-Lieberman New Democratic ticket has won the
struggle for control of the party, we will not hide from our base. We are not
ashamed of our most loyal supporters, unlike the Republicans, who are obviously
embarrassed by their leaders, their platform and their agenda. I looked everywhere
in Philadelphia and could not catch a glimpse of Rev. Pat Robertson, Tom DeLay or
Dick Armey, or the rest of the right-wing goofballs.
A party that is ashamed of its base is a party that's going to lose.
The Bushies must be sweatin' back home in Texas.
Both the once-respected Whore Street Journal poll and the Zogby poll show
the race has tightened to just three points. Just a week ago, the Zogby poll
showed Bush with a 17-point lead. What's happened to that mighty lead? Well,
it was built on nothing. Bush ain't a mile wide and an inch deep -- he's
about a quarter-inch deep. The GOP convention was all Alka-Seltzer: it fizzed
for awhile, but then it was gone without a trace. If Al Gore gives a good
speech Thursday night, he should emerge from this convention tied or in the
lead -- a remarkable political turnaround.
I have a question that you might have an
Conservatives are pro-religious, supposedly.
I want to know what religion?
It seems that all conservatives who speak
of god refer to the catholic based
christian religions. What I mean is any religion that believes in heaven, hell, god
and the devil and so forth. I have yet to see any mention to muslims,
mormons, witness's, buddhists, etc. Is the conservative party really for
religious rights and if so, who's religious rights?
They want to control religion.
They're so certain of their brand of insanity, they don't allow for others to
have a different brand. Like I explained when beating back the pinheads
who called me "anti-Semitic," as long as someone's not handing a rattlesnake
to a child, or refusing medical help for that child, I don't give a rat's ass
which brand of stupidity anyone wants to believe in.
Some people worship the sun, which is at least real.
Some people, like the ancient Egyptians, prayed to cats.
Some people worship a money-grubbing Nazi pig of a man.
Under BartCop-ism, all that would be allowed, but not encouraged.
If the Religious Reich ever gets control of the White House and
they will attempt to force their insanity on us sane people.
Then there will be a Great Civil War,
which is why every liberal should own a gun.
Grand Master Clinton!!!!
The guy is amazing. I watched his speech and Hillary's without getting up.
And I do agree with a point you made a while ago...Hillary is hot.
And I am only 26.
Bill Clinton is so damn good in the spotlight and can bring up
all kinds of emotions.
And did you notice all of the minorities in the crowd?
Not one of the was carrying a broom, like in the other "show."
I can't wait for the remaining Kennedy to speak. This convention seemed lighter and
more fun than the GOP's, but that was because our's was missing the hate.
Ralph Nader knows better
He is one of our greatest public advocates,
but his presidential campaign is leading the public astray.
By Joe Conason
Aug. 15, 2000 | After all the carping about Ralph Nader's personal eccentricity and millionaire income drifts
away on the wind, he will remain in the pantheon of great American citizens. He stands in a tradition of dissenting
intellectual activists that reaches back to Lincoln Steffens, Frederick Douglass and Tom Paine. His achievements
as the nation's most effective consumer advocate encompass, at the very minimum, the saving of scores of
thousands of lives which might otherwise have been sacrificed to corporate profitability (and not only in the auto
industry). He earned sufficient stature to run for any public office a long time ago.
Ralph is a man I admire and someone to whom I also happen to owe
a measure of personal gratitude. More
than two years ago -- back before he decided retrospectively to become a supporter of impeachment, when he
was among the most trenchant and thoughtful critics of Kenneth Starr -- Nader supported the research for "The
Hunting of the President," the book I coauthored with Gene Lyons. That is among the many reasons I am sorry
to say I think his presidential campaign is attempting to mislead voters, the consumers of democracy.
The premises of Nader's campaign, which threatens to deliver certain
key states to the Republicans in
November, are that the two major parties have become so similar that it doesn't matter which one wins the
White House; and that through his candidacy, the Green Party will become a viable institution to advance
progressive goals. Neither of those selling points is consistent with truth in advertising.
As one of the nation's premier intellectuals concerned with federal
policy, with particular expertise in matters
where Democrats and Republicans are indeed very different, it is hard to imagine that Nader really believes his
own rhetoric about "Republicrats." For an advocate such as him -- whose life's work is based on the idea that
government has a responsibility to protect consumers, workers and families from corporate depredation -- the
distinction between the major parties could never have appeared as stark as it does now.
Today's Republican Party is an entirely corporate-dominated entity
whose congressional leaders are utterly
hostile to the environmental, consumer and workplace safety agencies that Nader played an important role in
creating. For all their imperfections and compromises, and their increasing reliance on corporate soft money, the
Democrats maintain their traditional support for all those essential institutions. Many of them have been
reinvigorated under the Clinton presidency, after more than a decade of stagnation, influence-peddling and
outright corruption during the Reagan and Bush administrations.
The memories of Nader's supporters may be too short to recall
the fate of the Environmental Protection Agency,
the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Federal Trade Commission, and all the other federal
offices that were crippled under Reagan and Bush. But somehow I suspect that Ralph is only pretending
amnesia. Does he really think the lobbyists and executives who have raised $100 million to elect George W.
Bush are full of benign intentions? Isn't it obvious that this time around, especially if the Republicans also maintain
control of Congress, this crowd will try to finish the wrecking job they began in the 1980s?
Even on the issue of global trade, Democrats at least acknowledge
that globalization shouldn't sacrifice
environmental and labor standards for the sake of commerce. Republican ideology places no value whatsoever
on those concerns, which are regarded by GOP ideologues only as potential impediments to the marvels of the
The list of issues that distinguish Democrats from Republicans
is long and indisputable. It begins with the
minimum wage, which Democrats have consistently raised and Republicans would prefer to see abolished, and
goes on through reproductive rights, affirmative action, gay and minority rights, to the regulation of rapacious
health insurers and the maintenance of the freedom to sue corporate wrongdoers (a special concern of Nader's).
For upper-middle-class liberals -- to whom all these questions are comfortably abstract -- a vanity vote for
Nader may well be an affordable luxury. For everyone else, that choice represents a flirtation with disaster.
The argument that the major parties are identical is absurd, but
even less plausible is the notion that the Green
Party will ever become a useful alternative. Third parties that claim they are on the way to displacing the
Democrats or the Republicans are invariably perpetrating a consumer fraud.
More than a century has passed since such a party ascended into
real electoral competition; in recent times, all
of the rump parties have been spoilers. When they aren't spoilers, they simply spoil away themselves into
factional isolation and irrelevance. That is what happened with the Citizens Party in 1980, the precursor of
today's Green Party. It is also what happened to the movement around John Anderson's candidacy that same
year, which failed so pitifully that it couldn't even take a share of the blame for electing Reagan.
More immediately, that kind of political decay is what is happening
right now to the Reform Party, an effort with
better funding and a more significant social base than the Greens will ever possess. Well-meaning and sincere as
they are, the Greens call to mind George Orwell's acid description of the fringe personalities and obsessions that
once made British socialism unattractive to ordinary people.
In this country, the same small-party patent medicine has been
peddled by the same few figures on the far left for
more than two decades. It is about as useful for curing cancer or growing hair as it has been in reforming
American politics. Ralph Nader shouldn't be lending his illustrious name to a fake like this. And it is sad that to
whatever extent he does succeed this fall, he will only be undermining the extraordinary public contributions of
his own lifetime.

What's up with Drudge, he seems totally
with the unfolding drama of the sunken submarine?
Oh yeah, it's a story that has all the stuff
long, hard tubes full of seamen.
Drudge has half his page dedicated to the Russian sub.
To hear him tell it, that sub is almost as big a story as Clinton's cock.

Man that was a killer speech the greatest
President ever gave Bart.
You could almost hear the screws twisting in the republicons.
Pretty cool to see Hardballs pin down the pathetic turd Billy Bennett
on the economy stats.
I'm still puzzled why Chris the Screamer would say something nice
about Bill Clinton, even though it was true. Clinton has been a great
president loing before last night...
You really have Christy Brinkley Pics?
I have a couple...
Since she's a Democrat, I can only publish flattering pictures of her, fully-clothed.
But if she ever goes ditto-monkey on us...
From the Mind of BrainSmasher
Remember all the crying last summer by Republicans
when Clinton borrowed
money to buy his house in New York? "Clinton can't borrow from an individual,"
sniffed the GOP, "because he would be beholdant to that person."
So Clinton went to a bank and borrowed the
money at prevailing market rates,
but still the GOP complained because they felt Clinton should have to pay
PMI, etc. If Clinton got a deal, it was a fraction of a point in interest
on his $1.4 million dollar loan.
But now that Dick Cheney is getting $20,000,000
as a going-away present from
Halliburton, Republicans are silent once again.
What would you rather have?
A waiver of PMI on a $1.4 million dollar loan, or $20,000,000?
No wonder the GOP screws up the economy;
they think that a fraction of $1.4
mil is better than 20 million bucks.
Tamara Baker has a good piece about in in
but she doesn't make the Clinton comparison.
She also lets us know she learned about the Cheney deal while completely naked.
Is that really her picture with the boxing gloves?
If so, do you have any other pictures of
I hear she's a traitor!
Shame on you for thinking about her as a sexual object!
But I must admit, smart women are a turn-on for most Democrats.
You're right about the $20,000,000 bribe for Cheney.
That's not even the sales tax on what Smirk & Snarl will do for Big Oil
if they get their polluting hands on the White House.
You ever notice how the GOP hates and ridicules President Clinton,
but when Al Gore shows up, they all say, "He's no Clinton."
More proof they're lying...
On the way into the office, Uncle OJ Watts
was on the ditto-monkey AM station,
that broadcasts "the Truth Detector" every afternoon for three hours, whining and
complaining about the spectacular performance we saw last night.
"What Clinton said was pure mythology.
This president had nothing to do with this economy.
He used his sleight-of-hand to pretend he was responsible."
...and the all-white DL agreed with every lie OJ offered.
How does Clinton compare to Smirk?
Uncle OJ said,
"George W Bush had the courage
to speak to the NAACP.
That tells you what kind of man he is."
How much courage should it take for a presidential candidate to speak
to his fellow Americans? Christ, you might as well compliment him for
having the courage to defend Texas from Charlie during the seventies...
Great Clinton Quotes
"You could put my cabinet on this stage and it would
look a lot like that stage we saw two weeks ago."
Don't you think it was terribly bad manners for the Fox Whores
to read highlighted passages from Hillary's speech before she gave it?
Tony Snow, a particularly cheap-ass whore, even read false stage
(...pause for dramatic effect...) that Hillary never even used.
I'm old, I've seen six or eight of these conventions, and the
has never read from the speech before it was given, but then again,
we've never had an entire network turn gutter whore until Rupert Murdoch's
Fox Whore News came along.
Obviously Fox wanted to dilute the message by breaking it early
so it would have less dramatic effect to the viewer watching at home.
..and speaking of terribly cheap whores, Mara Liasson has to be
cheapest of the cheap whores on Fox, and that's really saying something.
The malicious venom that spewed from her mouth all night would've
gotten her mouth washed out with soap had she been Catholic and
back at the grade school where this writer was reared.
Candy Crowley, Peggy Noonan, Fred Barnes and the other usual suspects
were on their best behavior next to Mara Liasson. She acted like she was
related to that Mayberry family who complained about landlord Gore.
A shot of Jose Cuervo Gold for Mara Liasson - cheap-ass whore.

Remember Skirtboy and his "big challenge?"

Subject: **Last night's festivities**
I caught t\last night's opening of the AmericaFest
2000 on C-SPAN, which
seems to be the only whore-free network covering these conventions. After
the speech in which Clinton proved he'd win in a walk if it was permitted
to run for a third term, I flipped around the other channels to find out
what the shrunken-heads were saying right afterward:
NBC's Tom Brokhaw: Won in 1992 beating
Bush and Perot...stumbled
1994...came back to win again in '96 fueled by the largest cash
machine ever seen which is still raising questions...
ABC's Judas Maximus: The most partisan
convention speech I've ever heard...
Ediotr's Note: That back-stabbing son-of-a-bitch...
CNN's Jeff Greenfield: The Republicans
said they weren't going to be
held responsible for this economy...Clinton turned that around on them...
PBS's David Gergen: I don't see how this speech helps Gore at all...
ABC's Sam Donaldson: Are you better
off now than you were eight
years ago...Clinton's made the case on the economy that Shrub
will find hard to answer...Most effective line of the evening...
Only snippets, but some of these commentators
were busting a gut having
to say *anything* positive about the speech. Gergen and some other drone
yammered about how having Clinton's speech so late nullified its effectiveness
(which is why God gave us VCR's, David). "People go to bed after 11.00"
--which I suppose is why Letterman, Leno, and O'Brien are all failing in their timeslots?
(and I seem to remember Gergen saying that same thing eight years ago)
"Liberal-biased media"... Yeah, right!
