By the way, I just checked.
The air in Houston today is rated "Unhealthy."
The little pink lungs of Houston's first graders wrote a letter
to their governor.
It said, "Thanks, Smirk!"
"I am delighted to be here in Chappaqua,
in my home state, in my backyard,"
Rick (the Lick) Lazio said at one of four fund-raisers he attended yesterday.
This young man thinks he can beat Hillary by repeating, 3-4 times
at every stop,
that he was born in New York, as tho that was a qualification for the Senate.
They'd better televise those debates.
Paul Begala Shoots the Bull
Those of us who said Ken Starr had a political agenda are vindicated
The Washington Post reported this weekend that Starr will be the headliner
for a right-wing, special-interest fundraiser to benefit -- guess who?
The House Managers,
the 13 angry men who persecuted the President until they earned
a place in political infamy.
No sooner does Starr finish wasting $50 million of taxpayers' money hounding and hunting
the President than he's busy raising special interest money to reward the right-wing losers
who ran the impeachment lynch mob. Are we still to believe that Starr wasn't a partisan?
Does any serious person doubt for an instant that he carried that
partisan, political agenda
into the Office of Independent Counsel? Perhaps Starr suddenly abandoned his lofty,
judicial impartiality this week. But given his hard-core partisan record before, during and
now after the Clinton persecution, the Case Against Ken Starr is now closed.
The American people have rendered their judgment. And one day history will validate it.
It's nice that Starr is finally open and above board in his partisanship
-- and that he's applying
special interest money instead of taxpayers' to his vengeful pursuits.
Is Anne Heche involved with a man?
Of course, it's none of our business,
but we are trying to understand the gay thing.

Did anybody catch Ron Reagan Jr. on O'Reilly last night?
This guy is a great debater - I never knew.
After thinking about it, I guess he would be after his dad was president
for eight years - surely he's done more than his share on interviews and
on-camera time, but he put the big "F" on Bill O'Reilly.
O'Reilly asked Junior why he was so down on Smirk, and he said
was an unqualified idiot whose main "qualification" was to no longer be
the most obnoxious drunk in the state of Texas.
(He laid this trap really good, it was fun to watch.)
O'Reilly shot back with, "Well, there were those who said many
same things about your father."
The trap was sprung!
Junior said, "You want to compare Smirk to my father?
Are you sure you want to do that, Mr Smart-ass O'Reilly?"
What could "O'Reilly do but agree...
Junior said, "When my father ran in 1980, he had already been
governor in a REAL state for eight years, and was quite good at it.
He was the president of a union, he was successful at re-defining the
Republican party, and he almost unseated a sitting president of his own
party, and all that was before he ran in 1980, Smart-guy!"
O'Reilly shrunk in his chair and weakly replied,
"I'm not here to defend the Smirk campaign."
I was channel surfing, and when I saw how good Junior was, I hit
on the VCR and only caught the tail-end of it, but if you see Ron Reagan Jr.
on O'Reilly this weekend when they run their repeats, check him out.
I had no idea he was this good.
He had O'Reilly stammering.
By the way, Mrs. BartCop asked me and I'm not sure.
Ron Junior is adopted, right?
He was the ballet dancer, right?
Isn't it unusual to adopt a "Junior" and name the next son "Mike?"

Laboring Before Labor Day
Why doesn't Bush have more to fall back
on? I think we all know the answer.
He and his team call it compassionate conservatism, which on closer inspection
is nothing more than conservatism lite or a conservatism that dares not speak
its name or conservatism repackaged in a kinder, gentler wrapping -- in short,
a conservatism that caves under the first sign of pressure.
Because winning has become infinitely more
important than stubborn principle,
the Reaganite right has readily gone along with young Bush,
accepting more distancing from Reagan than it ever did under George Sr.
In other words, "We're screwed, blue and tattooed."
Let me in on this. Without even seeing
the video, I can tell you that I see
the point of the good people at bushwatch. For any Democrat to even
comment on this video would be a huge mistake. The whole world watched
Gore state that he is a man of issues, and W. can't get beyond sound bites
and platitudes in a prepared script. Gore and the Democrats need to stick
with that theme. If Smirk wants to bring up the video and offer a defense,
let him defend himself against nothing the Democrats have accused him of.
True, but that video is funny.
And if it proves Smirk a liar,
a liar about IMPORTANT things, so be it.
I showed that video to some Repubs where I work.
Just like I'm sure Papax7 would say, they said,
"He doesn't look like he's been drinking to me."
But when I asked them if they'd let that GW Bush drive
their kids or grandkids home in that shape, they said,
"What you have there wouldn't be admissable in a court of law."
I'm talking about the safety of your kids,
not the legal standard for public drunkenness.
I admit he's not falling-down drunk, but look at the way he handles
Look how he repeats whatever's being said off-camera.
Then he says "only in America" four times.
If I was a cop and stopped him two blocks from his house, I might
drive the last two blocks, but I wouldn't want to be in the car with him.
He'd probably knock over the neighbor's trash cans and try to fist his dad.
Great Smirk Quotes
"If I'm fortunate enough to become the president of the United
the folks in Louisiana will have somebody who won't have to look on a map

JoeL and God
Hey Bartcop, what's up with Joe's Torah-thumping?
I thought the REPUBLICANS were the ones who wanted
to run our lives according to Bronze Age texts.
One more reason to vote for Nader.
JoeL needs to calm down.
Overall, nobody knows if JoeL helped Gore - or the kiss - ot the convention
or what, but I'm not sure I'd be comfortable with JoeL as president,
which is his function - to be ready.
I'd hate to think we were suddenly plunged into a war and our
was busy praying and couldn't be reached.
This Just In...
Lieberman Told To Limit Expressions
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Anti-Defamation League
has urged Democratic vice
presidential nominee Joseph Lieberman to avoid expressions of religious
values and beliefs in his campaign.
"Candidates should feel comfortable explaining
their religious convictions to voters,"
the league said in a statement. "At the same time, however, we believe there is a point
at which an emphasis on religion in a political campaign becomes inappropriate and even
unsettling in a religiously diverse society such as ours."
The statement was signed by Howard P. Berkowitz,
chairman, and its director, Abe Foxman.
The league's focus is fighting anti-Semitism.
Subject: Let's Debate
ok, i'll debate you.topic: is nazism more closely related to liberalism or conservatism?
I smell a trap, but I don't do traps.
It's my guess you've stumbled onto some strict definition and are trying to make
a parallel that doesn't exist, so let me cut you off.
I think everyone thinks "minority persecution" when they think
There is a reason why your party has one gay and one black.
It's because minorities think the GOP persecutes them, and I agree.
The GOP is built on lets-stop-the-perverted-gays,
You can't deny the KKK votes GOP every election.
You can't deny Tim McVeigh and the all-white CCC are Republicans.
You can't deny your party has been slow to reject racism.
You can't deny your party is anti-education.
Please don't tell me that the word "socialist" was in Hitler's
Names can mean anything, consider Smirk's "compassion" when he dumps
medicare care for 250,000 poor children in Texas.
And please, please, please don't go back 140 years and tell us
what the GOP did
for blacks before electricity was invented. Your question wasn't about Lincoln's term,
it's about the hear-and-now, so let's talk about that.
This isn't even a contest.
I'm surprised you'd want this subject raised.
As long as that Kolbe guy and Uncle OJ Watts are alone in your
your side is stuck with the "persecuting minorities" tag.
That makes the GOP closer to Hitler's ideals.
Smirk Drunk Wedding Video Feedback
Subject: Where's the beef?
It's a good start, but not good enough to
bring him down
...not everyone is a bartender, and won't be able to see the signs.
I doubt this, by itself, will bring Smirk
down, but it proves he's been lying
about controlling his alcohol demons. Lying about sex is one thing,
lying about your ability to control your drug demons is quite another.
You can be president and get a blow job, as Clinton has proved.
But if you're drunk, the planet is in danger.
bushwatch has an interesting take on it as well.
I have nothing but respect for my good
friend Jerry at Bushwatch.com,
but his take is a little confusing. He starts with "A sucker born every minute."
What does that mean?
It's not Smirk?
Smirk's not drunk?
The only way this tape isn't real is if
Smirk's in on the gag, and why would
he act the fool when he wants to be taken seriously?
I think Bushwatch's point is it might actually help Smirk to get off the issues,
but who's going to sympathize with the lying drunk?
It would be fun to hear from the bartender
at the reception, however.
but, somehow, i find that unlikely.
We don't need a witness, because WE are
There may be a Part II to this tape.
Think how drunk Smirk might've been two hours later.
Remember, Al Hunt says Smirk called him
a "mother-effer" in from
of his 4-year old at a restaurant in dallas. That's an out-of-control drunk.
i see you also consider the possibility
of John McCain jumping in to
head the ticket once they realize that it's unwinnable;
but shouldn't they have already realized that?
is the script already written, and being played out?
The idiot GOP should've done the right thing
when they found out
they had a real loser on their hands, but I guess once you've dumped
$100,00,000 into a campaign you don't turn back.
One other thing:
On the tape, Smirk drunkenly slurs, "This
is an election year."
I realize that's every two years, but what evidence is there about the date?
Drudge said "early nineties," I believe.
Is this 1990 or 1992?

"No respectable media outlet will have anything
with this trash," predicted a top campaign source.
TRASH? What does he mean "trash?" The movie
Dubya is trash? What exactly was he referring to in this quote?
(---Perhaps the LIBERAL MEDIA took him out of context. Perhaps he was
being interviewed from his back yard while picking up doggie doo doo,
and was pointing to some dog excretement when he made that statement.---)
I don't know about you, but I'll not vote
for someone who makes "trashy" movies.
I have morals.
I'll not vote for someone who is referred
to by his own staff as "trash."
I have common sense.
"No respectable media outlet will have anything
to do with this trash," predicted a top
campaign source. Unfortunately for Dubya, there *is* no "respectable" media outlet.
Except maybe in Canada. Which won't do him much good.
It's possible the media won't play this
- it's hard to tell.
They gave Newt a complete pass when he bought shit for his girlfriend
using his credit card, but Newt was on his way out - Smirk wants in.
If I understand correctly, this broke about
8PM last night.
By 8:30. my mailbox was full of different sources for this tape that
all led back to smokinggun.com
It might be the fastest-spreading story
since the Dr Laura naked pics
from way back in October of 1998. The media can pretend nobody
is talking about this, but I'll bet smokinggun.com has more hits today
that any day they've been online.
Tiger Woo Runs
Out of Magic
(Hose Alert! Hose Alert!)
Fighting fatigue and the flu, Tiger Woo
ran out of magic Monday night
in the "Battle of Bighorn," losing to Sergio (who?) Garcia by a stroke.
Garcia birdied four of the last five holes,
including two long birdie putts
just like Mr. Perfect usually does to everyone he plays, day after day.
I sure am glad Woo had an excuse ready for his fans.
Why, if he hadn't been sick and tired,
if he'd just been sick, or
if he'd just been tired,
he would've whipped that uppitty Spaniard boy.
But since he was sick and tired,
he has an excuse.
I smell a skunk.
A big, fat stinking skunk.
Was this a Don King promotion?
If Woo had done his usual ahead-by-16,
people would've tuned out to watch something else.
Tiger builds the suspense to an Earth-shattering
This way, Garcia and Woo have to play again.
And when Tiger Woo wins, then they'll have to play the tie-breaker.
Funny, when Tiger's playing at the U.S.
Open or the Master's,
he's double digits ahead of the best golfers in the entire world.
But along comes a prime-time showcase for
Mr Wonderful and what happens?
The unknown kid from Spain takes Tiger Woo around the block.
Can you say, "fix?"

How drunk is he?
Again, former professional bartender here.
Check out how he says, "fine taxpayers."
Check out how many time he repeats, "only in America," again and again.
Listen closely to his fourth "only in ..."Merica."
And at the very end, killing the drink...
You don't kill a Coke or Pepsi that way.
That's a drunk man wanting every drop of that drink because
it would be a shame to let "good liquor" go to waste.
The question isn't, "How drunk was he?"
The question is, "Was he drinking in 1990?"
He's said he hasn't had a drink since 1985.
So he lied about being sober for 15 years.
Is he still drinking today?
Does that explain his inability to deliver a coherent sentence?
If he's lying about the liquor,
how do we know he's off the cocaine?
I figure there will be 8-12 "speed bumps" like this.
Which one will make Smirk bow out?
...and at what point do they ask McCain to get back in?
Do you realize that since George W Bush has been in
the national spotlight, nobody has seen Pauly Shore?
Some nut named Tom Squitieri was on Hardballs with Chris
(He claimed he was from USA Today, but that name isn't familiar...)
He said it was unfair that Liebermen was talking about God in
(I don't like it either.)
He said when Pat Robertson tried that in 1988, he got beat up by the press.
But wait a minute.
Robertson is a racist moron and a ticking time bomb.
In 1988, he said Jews shouldn't be allowed to hold elective office in America.
That makes him a racist crazy, so he & Lieberman are hardly twins.
He also said his secret sources told him Cuba had nuclear missles - in 1988.
The Pentagon immediately assured everyone Roberston was crazy
and that blew whatever credibility he once had out the window
No, Tom, it's not the same.
