Subject: White House admits wrongdoing by Rove
White House spokesman said Waxman was playing
'politics of personal destruction'
by calling for investigation of Rove.
But if he's done nothing wrong, how could he be
'personally destoyed' by an investigation?
Therefore, according to the White House, Rove has something to hide.

Subject: What a moron "Exhibit B" is everyone else
After naming half of Fox news - independent
radio hosts around the country,
you forgot the rest of the media.
Let me see off the top of my head:
Anyone who writes for: The Times, The post, Seattle time, Houston Chronicle,
Chicago Tribune, Newsweek, TIME, - virtually anyone that works for Ted Turner....
NBS, CBS, CNN, local and national news headlines "Dan Rathers" of the world.
I could go on, but I'm just wasting my time, because you are obviously moron!
Cliff, you missed it.
You were asked to name those who would defend Clitnon.
You didn't - because you can't.
The NY Times was 'Monica Central' for three years.
They printed Drudge's lie that Clinton fathered a kid with a crack whore.
And they put it on the front page above the fold.
They broke the non-existent "Whitewater" story and pretended it
was some serious smoking gun, but we all know it was nothing.
You call that defending Clinton?
It's real easy to say, "everybody," but it's just not true.
You seem to be more interested in personal slurs than the truth.
Would you care to try again?
PS. Seattle time, and NBS, are they new?
Subject: Chaney's electricity bill is too high
Apparently the Vice President's electricity bill
is too high for him to pay!
He wants the Navy to pick up the tab. The residence is on a Naval Base, but
every other VP hasn't had a problem paying the tab out of their office expenses.
Full sad story
The White House has cited the large and unpredictable energy bills of the VP's
official residence in urging Congress to relieve Cheney of using any part of his
official budget to pay for electricity. The entire electricity bill - an estimated
$186,000 this year - would be shifted to the Navy.
KJ, it's hard to pay the energy bills under Smirk when you only made $22,000,000 last year.

Golfers boycott greedy Tiger?
Mr. Perfect is getting $2,000,000 just
for showing up in New Zealand,
which is five times the total prize money. To recoup that, organizers are
charging $205 for a weeklong spectator ticket, compared with $20.50 last year.
Check out what Mr. Perfect said:
Woods said he would talk to some players to get a measure of their feelings.
"The players who want to do that, that is their
opinion and it is their choice to do whatever they still see
as fit for themselves,'' Woods said Tuesday. ``I understand what they are trying to do.
"But we will see what happens. Until I speak
with them, I am going to hold my opinion. I am sure when
I get a chance to talk with them and hear their viewpoints, then I will probably have a better appreciation
of where they are coming from.''
He said it would not stop him from going.
He's just like President Weak & Stupid.
He's going to sit down with his fellow golfers, he's going to listen to their complaints,
and then he's going to go anyway.
Hey, Mr. Perfect!
Why bother with the charade if you're going anyway?
I hope they ALL boycott New Zealand.
That way, maybe Tiger could win the tournament.

Ann Coulter never pays for her french fries
Got a link for you from smirkingchimp.com
It's an in-depth look at Ann Coulter by Brendan Nyhan
Most name-calling, however, is directed at Clinton, who is mentioned in 17 of her 28 columns
(that's 61% - I'll omit a links list). Coulter calls him, among other things, a "celebrated felon" (3/29),
a "known" felon (5/24), a "pervert, liar and a felon" (6/21), a "criminal" (1/11), "a flim-flam artist"
(1/11) and a "prominent" criminal (3/29).
Note to Ann, or would 'Monica' be more accurate?
Unlike your president, Bill Clinton has never been arrested or charged with a crime.
...and you claim you're a lawyer?
Maybe Abbe Lowell isn't the worst lawyer in DC, after all.
Have you ever seen a high-powered lawyer do a worse job than Abbe Lowell?
Was he this terrible representing Clinton?
Did Clinton coach Lowell thru his defense?
Can Condit be that guilty?
Have you ever heard of, "I don't need
to cooperate with the police because
my lawyer says I passed a lie detector test that nobody witnessed?"
Is this Abbe Lowell's last job?

Good catch-up article on my good friend, Greg Palast
Great sports column by Jon Saraceno in Monday's USA TODAY
"Bonds Will Break Before Home Run Record"
He says Barry Bonds can't break McGwire's home run record.
"McGwire's cherished single-season home run
record of 70,
set only three years ago after belonging to Roger Maris for FOUR DECADES,
couldn't be safer if it was protected by armed Pinkerton guards.
If Reggie Jackson is Mr. October, Barry
Bonds is Mr. May.
Since June 22, he has only hit two over the wall.
In sports terminology, it's called choking.
If he doesn't catch McGwire, it's because
he didn't want to try."
That's the kind of passion I was hoping to catch for the BartCop
but I guess people just don't have much passion for sports anymore.

Subject: tequila tastings
Thanks for getting us all interested in fine tequilas just as an agave shortage is pushing up prices. ;-)
Most tequila "experts" I know like Patron Anejo
the best, which is not on your list. I haven't tried Patron yet.
Cabo Wabo is a favored Reposado, and is quite good. For $20 a bottle, I like Sauza Hornitos, a Reposado.
Patron is needle city.
You ask, "What are needles?"
Needles are what you get after you taste some Chinaco Anejo, then chase it
with a shot in Patron. You say, "Koresh! What's with the needles, Patron?"
Needles stab your tongue, for no damn reason.
I don't want Chinaco Anejo to become everyone's favorite.
It could only increase the price. If someone tells you Patron or Herradura is better,
agree with him and save the Chinaco for Ol' BartCop, would you?
Herradura Anejo, another one not
on your list, has won a bunch of gold medals,
but this must be owing to payola, because it tastes like mediocre bourbon at 4x the price.
It won't make you gag - not like Cuervo Gold.
Remember that story I told in December 2000 about being at my sister's house?
She had a pantry of liquor, and just for grins, I tried a shot of Cuervo.
I gagged on it, and we almost had an incident, but I got it down without making a mess.
Jose Cuervo is nasty shit, and should not be taken by mouth.
They make hundreds of millions a year because people think if it's a real party,
like Mike's getting married or something, we have to get sick on fake-tequila.
These are the same people who voted for peanuts-in-his-YooHoo boy.
Herradura Anejo is tolerable.
If they don't serve Chinaco at this restaurant, you can still have a good time.
In a 1999 post to alt.smokers.cigars, Tom Mullaney writes that he prefers these over Chinaco Anejo:
1. El Tesoro de San Filipe Anejo
- light straw color, very subtle wood and pepper.
Best of breed for me [and Mrs. BC].
2. Gran Centenario Anejo - dark and smokey with a lot of wood.
The Don Felipe El Tesoro works.
It's not Chinaco, but it'll do in a storm.
Gran Centenario - never heard of it.
At my advanced age, if I've never heard of a tequila, it must not be a contender.

I have a close-up video tape of the fingers of a fantastic,
unheard-of guitar player.
This guy is Eddie, he's Steve Vai, he's Ingvie, but he doesn't want to kill his mother.
If you've taught guitar for 20 years, he'll still teach you something you didn't know.
This is the type of guitar player you can watch for five seconds and say, "Koresh!"
This poor bastard works at a PAINT store.
He got tired of the band scene, and quit it, but I have the tape.
Even if you're really good at guitar, and I mean really
he can make you stand up and say, "Son of a bitch, he can't DO that!"
But he can.
He has normal sized hands, but he does stuff that can't be done.
What so extra cool, is on this tape, he's so rusty, so out-of-shape, but you
can still hear the musicians in the room saying, "Jesus, do that again, but slower."
Even when he makes the mistakes, you see the genius.
One night, we had an after-party at BartCop Manor.
I had the foresight to put a camcorder on a tripod and point it at this guy's hands
while he played and fiddled with a guitar.
This guy is no Jimmy Page.
He can't take your mind on a journey.
He can't use his magik powers to call up the devil.
He's hopelessly tethered to the planet Earth.
But you should see the guitar teachers f-ing melt at this guy's feet.
BartCop TV - where are you?
Have I lied to you before?
Wait, maybe I did, but this is the truth.
This guy can do things with a guitar you can't believe.
I have a saying:
If you don't have it on tape, it didn't happen.
Well - this happened.
I will locate and post appropriate snippetts.
I expect guitar players to insist on full and complete copies, to check for fakery.
West Wingers on strike
Rob Lowe and Martin Sheen get over $100K per episode.
CJ, Toby, Josh and Leo only get $30,000 per episode.
That doesn't seem at all fair, after two seasons with a Hall of Fame Emmy winning powerhouse.
I'll give you Martin Sheen's irreplacability, but Sam Sehorn?
To me, Lowe is less of the show than Josh or Toby.
But on the other side, $30K a week and all the fame and respect
you can handle?
Some people would kill for that.
Like the Sopranos gang, everyone on West Wing has a lucrative future,
except for Larry O'Donnell and that bastard Pat Cadell.
What's the best way to put this...
If Pat Cadell is ever on fire, he'd better
hope I'm not nearby, and really really have to urinate,
because I wouldn't give him the satisfaction.
I like Rush more than I like Pat Cadell.
I haven't heard if they've come to an agreement, yet.
The producers are offering $60K per show, but they want $90K.
Evidence mounts that GOP used every trick in the book
By Eric Alterman
The New York Times has discovered mounds of evidence of unequal treatment of overseas ballots
in Florida on behalf of the Republican candidate George Bush. Its report provides additional evidence
to demonstrate what almost all of us know but precious few are willing to admit: the process that
determined the outcome of the 2000 election was fundamentally corrupt. Republicans dominated
the public relations battle, the behind-the-scenes political struggle, and ultimately the fateful
Supreme Court decision that handed them their tarnished victory.

Part I: From my perspective
by James Higdon
I rarely watch broadcast news anymore. I don’t listen to it on the radio either, other than to
check traffic reports and the weather. I’ve discarded from my life all talking heads and
disembodied voices that offer to “inform” me. Don’t get me wrong. I am a “news junkie.”
I spend several hours a day pouring through information from sources I trust. But quite
frankly, I’ve grown tired of being lied to. Lies coming from the broadcast frequencies that I,
and the rest of the American citizenry own. I see no purpose to being gentle, or kind here.
The time has long passed for mincing words with amiable complaint.

he was having an affair with an aid in his office. All the while his wife of 29 years was living in Ark.
Then he quietly divorced the Mrs. and married

It is so stupid, it has totally wiped out any discussion of the NY Times findings on the 2000 election,
stem cell research, prescription drugs, Karl Rove.....the list is endless.
I think it is tragic that Chandra Levy cannot
be found. However, she is 24 yrs. old and not a little girl like
some are saying, she had an affair with a married man and she knew it all along. Also why does her mother
keep saying "my daughter", never does she say OUR daughter or give her husband a chance to say anything.
Karen, I agree.
Hutchison is whore scumbag personified.
Banging the help in God's name.
Ted Bundy, OJ, and Gary Condit didn't go that far.

I agree about Chandra, mostly, but she is missing.
