Nation Suddenly Realizes
as seen on The Onion.com
"A few nights ago, I was watching The Tonight Show, and [Jay] Leno was making
some typical joke about Bush--you know, the kind we've all heard a thousand times
before--and I was thinking, 'Boy, wouldn't it be bizarre if he actually got elected?'"
said Ocala, FL, homemaker and mother of four Janis Niering.
"Then it hit me: 'Wait a minute--I think he was.'"
Now it's obvious why Starr hid [the Shaheen Report]. Shaheen concluded that Olson offered what amounted
to " 'free' legal services because he viewed the client as a thorn in the side of a political foe."
Ancient history? Maybe to Senate
Democrats, but not to Tucker, who filed a motion last year to have his
Whitewater conviction set aside on precisely those grounds: that Starr's prosecutors hid Hale's Arkansas Project
ties for the same reason they went after Tucker in the first place--to conceal their star witness' role in a well-funded
dirty-tricks campaign involving Olson whose ultimate goal was the ruination of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

for Slime Time: Critics Slander Jeffords
by my good friend Joe Conason
Poisonous accusations about Mr. Jeffords have been spewed up by the same pundits
who routinely praise GeorgeW. Bush for uplifting the atmosphere of Washington.
Their bile carried the usual aroma of hypocrisy.
“Changing the tone” was only a self-serving
slogan, the kind of cheap sanctimony
that winners forget as soon as they sense they might be losing.

The Cardinals' new No. 2 hitter admits
he doesn't know the bunt sign.
"I haven't looked at the signs in years," said Mark McGwire on Monday.
McGwire and No. 2 haven't been used in
the same sentence other than
a reference to McGwire hitting a second home run in a game.
But No. 2 is where the Cardinals' slugger was hitting Monday
for the first time in his career after being activated from the 15-day disabled list.
"It is opening day," said McGwire,
who was making his first appearance since April 16.
And, as he seemingly does on most opening days, McGwire hit a home run.
He also singled and scored another run as the Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-2.

I got a nice e-mail from Ben Affleck, thanking

It may have been the only positive review given to Pearl Harbor.

No one ever brings up how Limbaugh spent
the first year or two beginning
each show with "Day __ America Held Hostage."
The right never accepted Clinton's election
even though he unequivocally won both the popular and electoral vote.
I think this attitude helped lead to some of the violence, like Oklahoma City, against the government by giving
an imprimatur to the idea that the government was illegitimate.
DeElk, how true.
Limbaugh spent years calling Clinton "illegitimate," but now that his boy has won
over the objections of the voters he's a fucking church mouse on "legitimacy."
Rush Limbaugh is a lying opportunist with an infected cyst on

Subject: Chinaco Anejo and the Bartcop Tax Plan
Congratulations on the "Bartcop Tax Plan" passing!
Secondly, after my girlfriend of 4 years broke up with me yesterday,
I decided to try some Chinaco Anejo to ease the pain.
Went to a place in Tempe called "Palapas"
and it was hopping, even on a Sunday night.
Salsa or whatever filled the air and the small dance floor was packed with Hispanic-Americans.
I bellied up to the bar and asked for Chinaco Anejo.
The bartender looked over his inventory
and then handed me a Tequilla menu.
I looked it over and sure enough, Chinaco Anejo was on the menu for $7 a shot.
The bartender poured out what looked to
me like a huuuuuuge shot--but I wouldn't know
since I haven't drank "shots" since I was a teenager.
Damn that was good! It took me almost 20 minutes to find my car afterwards!
I understand now why you are so gaa-gaa
over the Chinaco. It truly is heavenily nectar,
although I suspect it will take me a number of months to recover from the pain of relationship breakup,
it was a nice distraction from the trauma of the experience.
Chinaco Anejo will never lie to you.
Chinaco Anejo will never break your heart.
Chinaco Anejo will never throw your clothes into the street.
Chinaco Anejo will never run up $6200 on your credit cards.
Chinaco Anejo will never tell your friends about that one night.
Chinaco Anejo will never have nasty, hot-monkey sex with your best friend.
Chinaco Anejo will never pack a .357 in your carry-on luggage,*
then call the airline and tell them you're planning to hijack the damn plane
You can trust Chinaco Anejo.

PLEA FOR HELP

BartCop's Lib'ral Hammer
Subject: Reagan Analysis
"Reagan was essentially an opportunist
in the pursuit of power.
He had very little coherent political 'philosophy'. His focus was upon power.
In my view he is best seen as atavist, a throw-back to an earlier society: the
'great conqueror' and would-be builder of empire, not a modern pragmatic politician.
In a sense, he was born out of his time.
He was a brilliant stage performer who,
in a later part of the century, might have ended as a pop singer or a successful salesman
or businessman. Reagan is, as with us all, a child of his times. He is also an example of
the professional politician-not primarily an ideas man, but an opportunist who will
'read the polls' and say whatever it takes to gain and stay in power."
The author certainly has Bill Clinton pegged
accurately, doesn't he.
This is fascinating because if you are a liberal or a conservative there is plenty to agree with.
Not much to disagree with.
The only flaw in the analysis is that I told a little fib.
I substituted the name Reagan for the real subject of the analysis.
The real subject was Adolf Hitler.
Larry, good stuff.
That must've been hard for you, because I know at one time you were a Reagan fan.

Click on the toxic "W"
the Rush to Execute Tim McVeigh?
Maybe they don't want him to reveal who he voted for?
There is another dimension to the Oklahoma City bombing that the political establishment has sought to conceal.
At the federal, state and local level there are numerous political figures with close ties to the Christian right,
militia groups and racist and anti-Semitic organizations—the very circles in which McVeigh moved prior to the bombing.
The Republican Party in particular has close ties to such right-wing groups, and a number of Republican senators,
congressmen and governors have actively solicited their support.
During the GOP impeachment drive against
Clinton, it was revealed, for example, that Bob Barr,
and Trent Lott had ties to the Council of Conservative Citizens, a white supremacist group.
The GOP is run by white supremacist handjobs?

The secret, as near as I can tell, is to put fresh garlic on the bread before applying the sauce.
In my neighborhood in Brooklyn, there were three pizza joints within a block or so.
It was TORTURE deciding which one to go to for a slice. All different, and all great.

This is a picture of Sarah O'Hare.
She's a near supermodel who married Rupert Murdoch's son "Lachlan."
(If I ever had a kid, I'd name him "Lachlan."
Either "Lachlan" or "Hootie and the Blowfish," whichever is more street.)
I'm not trying to make some big political statement here
about how supermodels
sometimes marry men for their daddy's money or to get inside a hotter spotlight.
This is not about the imperialistic, reich-leanings of the Murdoch
It's not about Newt's failed revolution and how Murdoch got burned.
I just think Rupert's daughter-in-law has a cute caboose.

the Paul Harvey Fan Cluib
(You must pass a test to get in)
I wanted to email you because I thought maybe you could give me your opinion on a few things......
1. I was talking to a friend of my mom's
the other day about the Iran hostages in the early 80's.
He says that the reason the hostages weren't released until Reagan got into office is because the
Ayotollah didn't like Jimmy Carter and wanted to wait until a Republican president was in office
before he let them go.
2. One of my friends is a Republican
and she was talking about Clinton, saying that he was the
reason that a lot of american soldiers got killed during the war in Bosnia. I'm sure that's not true either.
(Of course she also brought up the subject of Monica. and also the supposed trashing of the White House
and the looting of Air Force One, which I pointed out to her never happened and which she had no response for.)
Kelly, you came to the right place.
1. Yes, the religiously insane Ayataollah Khomenie didn't like Jimmy Carter because
Carter allowed the dying Shah of Iran to come to New York for medical teatment.
Khomenie very logically assumed the Shah was here to plot his return to power,
so the hostages were taken - for no particular reason.
There was no "invasion" to call off, there was just a lot of name-calling,
and a lot of chest-thumping about how badly Iran could kick our ass in battle, ha ha
but Khomenie came to realize that the hostages were gaining him absolutely nothing,
and they were becoming a severe liability to him and his faith-based initiatives.
While looking for a way to get out and save face, Bill Casey contacted
Iran and told them
if they would keep the hostages until after the election, they would be rewarded with
planeloads of Stinger missles to help them in their war with Saddam in Iraq.
So, your mother's friend is right: Khomenie didn't like Carter
at all, but he loved Reagan
and his team of perjury-riddled, Constitution-raping, arms-for-hostages band of thugs.
Reagan's promise of missles from the future and his "never negotiate with terrorists" horseshit
was just what Khomenie needed to get out of his jam with Jimmy Carter.
Reagan saved the day - for the Ayataollah.
And all it cost was Raegan's dignity, his honor, his self-respect,
the rule of law, his word to
the American people2 planeloads of missles, and the continued blindfolded incarceration
of 50 innocent, terrorized career-service diplomats. Since these crimes had nothing to do
with Clinton's zipper, they weren't considered crimes at all.
After the election, Iran wanted to release the hostages right
away, but Bush and Casey
thought it would look better if Iran held those innocent diplomats until January 20th,
so Reagan could start his "never negotiate with terrorists" administration on a high note.
2. This is crazy talk. There were no "American
soldiers killed during the war in Bosnia."
Sadly, one ot two died in a car wreck and I think one committed suicide, but none in battle
When in doubt, just remember, "Clinton never sent a man into battle who didn't come home."
When you're young, ...and hopelessly in love,
there's only one thing that matters...
Is it illegitimate president or bastard president?
