555 - Democrats Back Off
August 13, 2001
Want It Both Ways
by Neil Murray
Sure to cause tremors in the Nader/Moore camp.
Subject: Spineless Democrats
"Spineless cowards..." --Bartcop commentary on the Democrats
It is rather interesting to read almost every
day some sort of attack on the Democratic party
and it's inability (or unwillingness) to fight
with the Republicans, to stand up for what they
believe in, to show some principles...all the
while obsessing over Green Party members for daring to doing just that.
They may be spineless, fraudulent cowards,
but they're our spineless fraudulent cowards!...right?
The Democrats COULD be turned around with one Patton-type speech.
It COULD take decades to build the "Nader" party into something more
than 3 percent.
You willing to let the GOP name the next 6 Supreme Court justices?
"Do you know what President Bush's handicap
is at golf?
Trying to add up the score."
"Of course, Al Gore is in the ring.
The way he sees it, he isn't starting all over.
He is running for re-election
— against a man he has already defeated.
He just needs to evict
the Occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania, the Scalia squatter.
After all, W. is never
there anyway. And even when he's there, he's not there."
-- Mo Dowd, she hates everybody
Subject: Regarding crop circles:
The Aug. 13th edition has an article on crop
circles (a ninth circle supposedly "appeared"
in front of researchers). Well. I don't
really buy into the crop circle thing,
BUT: On July 16th evening, I watched a WNBC
TV (NYC) news broadcast about a
formation of about 14-16 UFO's witnessed over
the Bayonne, New Jersey area. There was
a video of this V-shaped formation, several of
the 'craft' moving in and about. There were eye-witness testimonies
from many people, including at least one policeman. Ok...a major
sighting witnessed by so many people...I would assume there would be follow-up
of some kind.
A refutation, a Gov't explanation, a weather occurence...but,
to my amazement, not a single follow-up. I cannot find it on the
web, my local paper...a biggie (Newsday) said at first they hadn't heard
anything, then, after a second email, said they think it might have
been a meteor...Hmmm, 14-16 meteors flying in formation, interesting.
WNBC, the NYC affiliate
for NBC, replied to my email saying they get
too many queries to answer personally.
What the hell? I mean, I'm not a student
or follower of the UFO thing, but this is ridiculous...
I can find nothing on it.
BTW, great site..........jotho
Jotho, the press in this country does a horrible job.
They can't get anything right, they are the most shameless of whores.
They are too lazy to do even the slightest bit of work and if they
don't find the story
they're looking for, they just make shit up. They should all be ashamed
I think the term "press ethics" should be illegal to utter.
If a UFO landed in the middle of Times Square, they would only
cover the story from the
angle of how it affects Clinton's cock - it's the only story they know
how to write
I don't know anything about the press in other countries, but here in
America, the value of "news" is only what advertisers are willing to pay
for, so horseshit rules the
About a month ago in K-Drag, the Rush station
told a horrific story about the stupidest
criminals ever. These idiots kidnapped a woman,
tied her up and took turns raping her with
whatever objects they could find around the house.
These crazy animals then took pictures
and tried to have them developed at FotoMat
where the clerk immediately called police
and they staked out the hut.
The nut comes back to get his precious pictures
and was arrested. The cops questioned him
but he wouldn't give his name, his address, the
girl's name - nothing. The biggest problem they faced was that once the
suspect was processed, he got his phone call and they were certain
his first phone call would be to someone who'd
tell the others to (probably) kill the woman.
...there was never another word said about
Here we have a woman with possibly hours to live,
and I didn't hear another word about it,
even tho I listen to nine hours of talk radio
every weekday. I was hoping the woman survived
but the idiot whore media probably found some
worthless Clinton accusation to run with instead, so this tick, tick, tick
story of this woman's life just melted into the background, never to be
heard again. To this day, I don't know is she lived or if they ever found
her body - nothing - because the whore press is so stupid and so
incompetent they can't tell a simple story.
If anybody knows what happened to that poor lady,
could you let me know?
paper says we scooped Slate.com
snub story takes on life of its own
E-mail starts with Philly man, goes worldwide
The man, whose name we agreed to withhold,
said in the e-mail that as Bush worked the
crowd at the Greater Exodus Baptist Church
in North Philly, he confronted the president,
saying he was disappointed with him and
hoped he wouldn't get reelected.
"Who cares what you think?" Bush allegedly replied.
The man sent the e-mail to his friends.
In it, he suggested he might sell
"Who cares what you think?" T-shirts. His
friends sent the e-mail to their friends.
Then it began popping up on Web sites: buzzflash.com,
NewsMax.com and, just this week, on Slate.com.
But this doesn't mean Slate.com is a slacker web site.
I'm sure they've scooped us on some story, too.
A reader saw this on buzzflash.com
and sent it in.
We need an honest translator to tell us
what Bush is really saying.
Here are a few translations that you can
Typical Bush Statement: "I'm putting
this aside for further study."
Translation: I refuse to deal with
this and maybe it will go away.
Statement: "I will permit government
funding for the existing stem cell lines."
Translation: A big thanks to the
pharmaceutical industry for the enormous campaign funds.
Go forth and flourish. You own the existing
cell lines, here and abroad.
May a monetary windfall come your way.
Statement: "I intend to do some deep
thinking about this and come up with a decision
that is right for the American People."
Translation: I intend to ask Rove,
Hughes and Cheney what would be the best decision
for American Business.
Statement: "I have appointed a commission
on this subject and they will be making
recommendations to me."
Translation: I have stacked the
deck with people who are pro Bush and right wing thinkers.
Statement: "I will spend a vacation
month in August at my ranch in Crawford,
the Western White House. Part of the time
will be a working vacation."
Translation: "I'm so sick of Washington,
D.C. and dodging my responsibilities that
I'm going to my hideout where none of
you can get to me. I will read (my?) decision
on stem cell research from a teleprompter,
and that's it!"
Statement: "I have restored dignity
to the White House."
Translation: Making everyone dress
in business attire has surely fooled the country.
Need I go on?
Cathy, good stuff!
your Bill Clinton trading cards
line up to be first to get collector's items
HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - The lineup started
at 6 a.m. Friday for
fans jockeying to be among the first to
own a Bill Clinton trading card.
When the doors to the convention center
opened seven hours later,
1,200 people had gathered to watch the
stepfather, Dick Kelley, accept the first
"I'm one of the proudest guys that ever
came down the pike," Kelley said.
Am I the only one looking forward to this movie?
Chris Rock, George Carlin and Ben Affleck join Jay & Silent
Bob in Hollywood.
It looks like a can't-miss to me, but I'm usually wrong guessing
what the masses will like.
Since they're not having sex with pies or wanking animals, the
kids won't like it.
Jay breaks all the language rules.
The only movie I've seen them in is Dogma, and Jay used
prison talk the whole time.
I was offended at first, because he was saying, "Pass the fucking
salt," at dinner,
but after a while it got funny to me and I can't explain why.
He was so out of line, he told God (Alanis Morrisette) that she
had nice tits.
Odds are Carlin and Rock will only have small cameos, but I'll
pay for it.
At my age, it seems like only one or two movies out of ten are
worth paying for.
I think we should have a round of applause for Jenna Bush.
She's been arrest free for last 30 days.
Of course, it's very possible she's been caught and arrested
again, and the whole thing
was hushed up, like her daddy's cocaine bust in Houston,
so who knows?
I'm sure if she's spotted doing community service, the press will
be "too polite"
to ask for which of her crimes she's doing the time.
Subject: Christopher Reeve did
not like Shrubs decision
>Judas: This most certainly was a great political victory
for the president.
The right-to-lifers are happy and so is Christopher Reeve.
Bush is an incredible genius.
Judas had best do a little homework.
He is full of BS when he says Christopher Reeve
is happy with Shrubs stem cell decision.
Reeve was not pleased. Larry King talked to
Mary Tyler Moore and Reeve right after
Shrubs speech. Reeve was not happy at all,
he did not like the limited study Shrub
is allowing plus he wondered where the heck
did the number 60 come from, which is exactly
what Moore wondered as did Michael
J. Fox the following day. They are
all in touch with scientists constantly they said and
they had never heard there were 60 stem
cells. So Judas has best get his head out from
where the sun does not shine, actually
he could take the rest of the crew and take
a flying leap..
Karen, I've said this many times, but I thought when ABC hired
Judas, it was to have a
liberal voice on the panel, but all he does is ditto every personal
slur that comes out of
George Will's mouth. When George Will says, "Clinton
is a liar," Judas pipes up with
"...and he's a pervert, too," so
why was Steffie hired in the first goddamn place?
Reminder: Judas isn't there to play fair or give the facts.
He's there to help ABC News
get a piece of the Fox News angry white man viewership that pays
I guess with Cokie Roberts sitting there, Judas looks like a genius.
I know you don't care much about sports,
but the St
Louis Rams look vastly improved this year on defense.
Last year when they lost games, it was usually 48-45 or something
so if they can get a defense on the field, that 45 points should
win a lot of games.
John Madden said they were the most potent offense he'd ever
seen in football,
so a little defense might make them a contender.
BTW, our sports editor, The
Angry Burgher said he'd keep the sports page alive
until football season got underway. I would've bet a bottle of
Chinaco that sports was
a thing some people got passionate about, but apparently not
Polls Are Much Worse than the Media Pretends
The Conventional Wisdom for the past couple of weeks is that Resident-Select
has gotten a bump in the polls, and the media sent him off on
his "working vacation"
with lots of puff pieces about his recent victories in the House.
As always with the Shrub,
however, there were some interesting, and largely overlooked
items in those polls.
For example: 48% of the respondents agreed that Bush had won
"fair and square";
but 50% (fully half) did not! 33% of those polled felt that Bush
had won "on a technicality",
and 17% (1 out of every 6 Americans) were willing to tell pollsters
that they believe
that Bush "stole the election"!

Over the weekend, Mark McGwire hit #574 and #575.
He's now in fifth place on the all-time home run list,
with Frank Robinson's #586 the next to fall.
Granted, he strikes out a lot, but his
last 12 hits have all been home runs.
All he needs is twelve more home runs to replace Robinson on baseball's
Already, they won't let him pay for food, drinks, sex, gasoline,

When he joins Rushmore, he will be a bigger legend than ever.
I expect the sports networks to go crazy covering this.
Aaron and Robinson were the seventies.
Ruth was the thirties.
Mays was the sixties.
This is now.
When Mark goes Rushmore, I will drink a shot of Chinaco.
Mark McGwire - one of the most decent men in sports.
Circle Changes As Researchers Watch
"President Bush isn't going to change his mind
on stem cell research,
no matter what
some scientist discovers."
--Tommy Thompson, quoted by Fox News
Exactly, and that's a big problem.
Reagan was the same way.
Once he made up his mind,
all the science and logic in the world couldn't shake him.
Y'know, there's something to be said for
"sticking to your guns,"
be refusing to recognize change is just plain stupid.

Why are media execs knobbing with Castro?
Moonves, the CBS president, took a razzing
from David Letterman after his return.
Letterman ran a skit, Lunch with Les
and Fidel,' in which an actor playing Castro says,
"Les, throughout the decades, to insure
a strong dictatorship, I have starved my
countrymen and tortured and murdered
my political opponents.''
The Moonves character then quips: ``The
Bette Midler Show was my idea.''
Funny how birthdays are spread out.
Today, the only guy worth mentioning is dead, but tomorrow
is so jam-packed it'll look like a damn People magazine.
"Doctors say President Bush's sitting
heartbeat is 43.
