The Vegas Report
"Enron is running the Bush administration's
-- Ann Richards, who always tells the truth
Scientists Reset 'Doomsday Clock' Toward Danger
The keepers of the "Doomsday Clock" have advanced its hands nearer
to the midnight hour
symbolizing nuclear weapons conflict, its closest since the Cold War's end, citing worries
over lagging disarmament efforts, the security of existing stockpiles and terrorism.
Having a really stupid president who must have constant war to
keep his approval high,
plus a tendency to go it alone in the face of our closest allies, the world is less safe than
it would have been if Americans were allowed to choose their president by voting.
Astros to Buy Enron Ballpark Name
The Houston Astros are dropping the name
"Enron Field" from
their ballpark to relieve themselves of the embarrassment.
I wonder if George Bush International Airport in Houston is thinking the same?

Why, ...it's Dr. Laura and her hooters.
Dr. Laura, ...how COULD you?

Judge Orders Cheney Records Release
A federal judge has ordered the Energy Department to release thousands of records on the
Vice Oil Man's energy task force, criticizing the government for moving at ``a glacial pace.''
You don't think it's starting, do you?
If there's some really damaging info in these papers that link Smirk 'n Dick to Enron,
bartcop.com will soon be $9.95 a week, because the Smirk Roast will be held right here!
If there was any sense of fair play in the minds of the Karma
Gods, we Democrats would get our turn
to crucify the other guy, who's actually guilty of stuff and I want to be the guy swinging the big hammer.
...in a comedic way, of course.
Subject: It is all my fault!!
It is all my fault!!!!!! Rush says he started
going deaf in May.
That is the exact time that I got in my legendary "Mega Bartcop Dittoes Pigboy" call.
I think what happened was the hearing of
the name "Bartcop" started the famous "Bartcop Hex".
Next thing you know the pigboy is deaf and dumb. I think Rush knows this and I must admit I
still fear for my life from the ditto-monkeys so don't print my e-mail address. Ha, ha.
Mark Twain's War Prayer
O Lord our God, help us to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells;
help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead;
help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded,
writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire;
This Twain guy should 've been a writer.
Washington broods over X-Ray prognosis
As the prisoners while away the weeks in their flyblown cages at Camp X-Ray,
Washington's government lawyers are in a state of confusion and embarrassment,
having so far failed to come up with a coherent plan for the captives' future.
I thought President Emotional Landslide decided they were all
That is, guilty of "being evil-doers," so why doesn't he just show them some of
that good old "Texas hospitality" like he showed those hundreds of prisoners there?
I mean, if King George says they're guilty, they're guilty,
and there's no need for any trials or lawyers, right George?
There are signs that the administration
now regrets inventing the whole concept
of military tribunals, the only war-related issue which has come close to giving
President Bush political problems since September 11.
That was always an extremely stupid idea, even for Bush.
...and I wish I knew why most Democrats remained silent when Bush
extremely stupid and unconstitutional idea. I don't like it when the Unelected Fraud tells me,
"The Constitution doesn't apply in the following cases..."
Did the media kill Daniel Pearl?
Would he still be alive if his picture and story weren't splashed
every TV screen and newspaper front page in the western world?
If you don't count clueless Ronnie Reagan and the Bush Family
everyone agrees you don't pay kidnappers because it encourages more kidnappings.
So wouldn't the same principle apply to publicity-seeking religious
When they made Pearl a media superstar, that empowered the nutjobs.
Roger Hedgehog, the nut subbing for Rush yesterday,
says he wants to see the video of Pearl being beheaded.
The hotter they can make that Pearl video,
the odds increase that there'll be another soon.

Delusions and the Madness of Drudge
by Gene Lyons
The point is that once upon a time, it would have been shocking that for more than a month, not a
single editor or reporter exercised minimal due diligence to determine if this too-good-to-be-true little
nugget had any basis in fact. Today it's business as usual. Indeed, had it not been for the pesky activists
at MediaWhoresOnline.com, it's not clear the Lincoln Bedroom fable would ever have been corrected.
The website posts newsroom e-mail links and phone numbers, encouraging citizens to make pests of
themselves until journalists get it straight.
1. Gene Lyons just totally rules, doesn't he?
2. Mediawhoresonline.com is starting to dominate.
If you read it on mediawhoresonline.com - it's true.
Everytime they get a national mention, which these days is almost daily,
I write them and tell them how jealous I am, but I'm just kidding.
If you read the fine print on their site, it says "In association
I think I need to write "In association with mediawhoresonline.com," instead.
I wrote to the editor last night and said:
> Damn, Lyons even credited you with fixing the
Lay-Lincoln bedroom story!
> You're in the history books now!
> I'm sooooooo jealous!!!!
> It's kinda like "A Star is Born," except that I was never a star :)
I'm real proud of the gang over at MWO.
MWO has more credibility than the New York Times,
because they don't print every damn rumor that Matt Drudge fabricates and pretend it's "news."
At MWO, they take the time to DIG and find the truth like reporters USED to do,
before Clinton came along and the rules changed to "no sources at all."

Las Vegas is too big for one lone dude to handle.
A new friend put a link to bartcop.com on his page.
WARNING: NOT a member of any feminist webrings.
So I thought I'd ask the ladies - only:
Do women have a better online friend than bartcop.com?
Hopefully, it's not my honesty that might upset some women.
For instance, when I do the Emmy and Oscar picks, I'm honest
enough to say I pick the women with whom I'd most enjoy having sex.
This year I'm rooting for Halle Berry.
Could women take that as an insult?
If so, then what would explain the acting careers of Mel Gibson,
Harrison Ford, Sly Stallone, Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan, and, above all, Tom Cruise?
Isn't it a fact that those "actors" make money because women pay
to see their movies
so they can fantasize about having sex with them?
If I'm wrong - explain Tom Cruise to me.
Now that that argument has been settled, I'd like to hear from
Is there anything on bartcop.com that you see as insulting to women?
[I see those extra-vulgar Laura Schlessinger
pictures as political,
not (gag) sensual, but you're free to disagree with that if you like.]
I had the most infuriating conversation with the Democratic
Christian is always saying, "Let me talk to those people, that's what a publicist does."
But did I listen?
Did Nolan Richardson talk himself out of a cushy coaching job at Arkansas?

USA Today reports that, starting in April, Bill Press is leaving
That's not the good news - I like Bill Press.
Oh, I think he could've tempered his condemnation of Bill Clinton
but compared to Alan Colmes, Bill Press is James Carville or Paul Begala.
Guess who's replacing Bill Press?
James Carville and Paul Begala!
The two of them are going to take turns giving the red-ass to
Tucker Carlson and Bob Novak.
I'll bet they're doing it because the Democrats have become such pink-tutu's spineless woosies
that they felt it was their duty to remind the scared bunnies how to fight!
