O'Connor Wishes Bush V. Gore Had Never Come Up
Sandra Day O'Connor, says she wished the
justices had never had to make the decision
that all but delivered the White House to President George W. Bush.
"There was a great deal of criticism. It was
a difficult case. It's too bad that it came up," O'Connor said
That's a big, fat lie!
The crooked court INSISTED on getting
involved, they INSISTED on stopping the count, and this
is with Scalia's kid, Rehnquist's kids and Slappy's wife all on the Republican payroll to elect the Fraud!
was not a mistake, this was not an accident,
this was not unfortunate happenstance.
This was a crime.

Today in History
On Jan. 28, 1986, the space shuttle Challenger
exploded 73 seconds
after liftoff from Cape Canaveral, killing all seven crew members.
I remember it well.
Rumor was the Reagan Administration pressured NASA to launch in the cold because
Saint Reagan wanted to give his State of the Union speech while Challenger orbited.
Then it blew up, because the O-rings were too brittle in the cold.
Was there an investigation?
Did the media look into this?
Did Congress hold hearings?
No! ...because it had nothing to do with Clinton's zipper!!!!!
Had it involved Monica, or something equally
important, they might've checked into it,
but it was only seven dead heroes, and after all, it was Saint Reagan, the man who walked on water,
so ....no harm, no foul.
Just like with President AWOL and the Japanese
students who were killed when the Enron Boys were
playing with Bush's new submarine toys, nobody cared, nobody investigated and the media went to sleep.
It's not a story without Clinton's zipper so we should just learn to accept media silence.
But oh, if Bill Clinton wrote a check
in 1978 and can't remember why,
we need to stop all government functions, throw Susan McDougal in jail,
kick Julie Hiatt Steele out of her home and threaten the president's friends
and business associates with death in prison.
Is it too early for a fucking drink?
I think Tom Tomorrow agrees

President Enron stabs veterans in the back
Unlike President AWOL, I stand behind
You can raise my taxes to be sure they get their treatment and medicine.
But I understand Bush's point, too.
You see, elderly veterans won't produce a single barrel of oil,
and they won't put any money into the Bush Family Evil Empire,
so why the hell should Bush care about them?
Remember, they didn't take away our right
to vote so they could
do the decent and honest thing with all that power.
...sons of bitches.

Post-wreck Niki Taylor
Niki Taylor Sues Over Scar Photos
Supermodel Niki Taylor is suing a British magazine
over photographs taken of scars
she suffered after undergoing several life-saving operations. The surgeries were
performed last year following a car accident that left Taylor critically injured.
The supermodel claimed that for the magazine to
get the pictures, she was coerced
into taking off her clothes. She also said that if the pictures are published,
it could ruin her career as a fashion model and cause her embarrassment.
Thursday, a judge rejected a request to
prevent the pictures from leaving the state or being printed.
Yeah, like that's what she agreed to when she signed that contract.
You old-timers might remember the WKRP
where some scumbag photographer hired
Loni Anderson to do some bikini pictures, but he had a camera in the dressing room and got
pictures of her naked. Johnny Fever and Venus Flytrap broke into his studio & stole 'em back.
I know you're snickering about the line "coerced into taking off her
clothes," but Niki Taylor
is the only supermodel of which naked pictures do not exist, and I know what I'm talking about.
I think that's one reason I like her more than most. After nine years on the internet, I think a photo
of a woman in a bikini or a teddy is a lot sexier than a Laura Schlessinger-type spread eagle picture.
But chances are the scumbag judge wants to see her naked, so those pics
will get out.
Jesus, you'd think crawling back from her deathbed is tough enough, but now she has to
worry about shitholes trying to get pictures of her scars.
Life sucks sometimes.

Anyway, just wanted to point out that Smokin'
Joe Conason was on C-SPAN today and he kicked ass
without going into hysterics or anything. Also, interesting to note that all of those extreme right wingers
who call when their evil brethren are on C-SPAN (and talk about how the Democrats hate America
and want to kill babies) are strangely silent when somebody is on who could challenge them.
And to add to all this secrecy in what is politely
referred to as the Bush Administration -- The CBO and
the Treasury used to release information about how a changes in tax laws would affect certain income brackets.
However, since King George I the CBO does not release these, preferring to only use these numbers internally.
Since George II the Treasury refuses to release
these numbers too. But if somebody were to sue under the
Freedom of Information Act...Well, who knows what would happen but it would be interesting.
Anyway, keep up the great work fighting the good fight!
Stephen, thanks for that.
I set my VCR for 6 AM but it must've been the wrong hour K-Drag time.
Yes, Bush is cooking the books just like Kenneth Lay did.
He's Enroning us like they did those poor employees who are going to the poorhouse.
And you're also right about the ditto-monkeys that hate a fair fight.
I'm here over six years now, and there's nobody in all of cyberspace to debate.
If I scare the DMs with my IQ of 64,
it's no wonder they don't want a piece of Joe Conason.
Bush Team says "No, thanks" to Team Clinton advice to watch al Qaeda
Why Bush deserves his share
of the 9/11 blame
by Aaron Marr Page
"...finally the latest front-page Washington Post installment examines the Bush administration's own
anti-terror accomplishments in 2001. And it turns out that compared to Bush, Clinton was practically Wyatt Earp.
In fact, the latest Post article suggests
a whole new line of inquiry: Did Bush, at a key moment,
dismantle the Clinton administration's increasingly effective anti-Al Qaeda apparatus
(which, though hardly flawless, was far better than nothing)?.
We should've known.
The second Team Bush realized they'd been caught napping, they tried to blame Clinton,
the guy who was not driving the bus when America had its second Pearl Harbor.
...and what's the best defense?
Call Tim Russert and Fox News and have them fire up the GOP Blame Machine.

I haven't heard back from either of them, or maybe it's buried,

The mysterious death of former VP. Nelson Rockefeller
Finally, fully one hour after Nelson Rockefeller had collapsed, the girlfriend called the ambulance.
Thanks to Joanne
One story that was told over and over about
the death was that when the police got there,
they discovered his shoes were on the wrong feet and the newspaper he was "holding"
was upside-down. Then the mistress story came out.
Love the site.

> -- Peggy Noonan in the WSJ on Enron
Nobody has mentioned this yet, but this may be
the most explosive quote
to come out of the Enron scandal.
Remember, the entire Republican economic agenda
is fundamentally based on the principle that the
extremely wealthy, specifically those with $100M will not pursue any activity unless they can make
more money, let's say $5M, doing so. This is the only rationale presented for the present and future tax cuts.
If there is a maximum threshold to individual
wealth at which no further effort can be extracted, then we can
tax anything over this bracket at 99% with no adverse effect to the economy. In fact the noted liberal
Richard Nixon actually proposed a "maximum wage" at one point during his term
Sak, great point.
You're saying the ultra-uber rich won't even get out of bed for less than $5M,
and that's why a little tax for the rich has no effect, thus justifying the too-large tax cut.
And didn't Clinton prove your second paragraph true when he raised taxes
on the top 1.5%?
You may have your finger on the crux.
Never trust a Republican.

I wonder what kinds of torture they're using in Gitmo Cuba.
I mean, they floated all those trial ballons and not a peep was heard, certainly not from the Democrats.
They were too busy applauding the Failure in Thief to consider upholding the constitution.
Then they dragged the Taliban to Cuba where they are currently being "interrogated."
Who's going to stop them from torturing suspects in Cuba?
Who's going to see anything or hear torturing suspects in Cuba?
Certainly, it's a firing-squad offense for any soldier to spill
the beans or blow the whistle,
and you know what they say about absolute power corrupting absolutely, right?
You can bet Powell is "out of the loop" on the torture thing,
he's on a "need to know" basis.
So, in the top circle, who's the guy with humanity and compassion?
Yeah, I'll bet Karl Rove is the conscience of this gang of mobsters.
