"Character matters because there is such a
thing as absolute truth,
and the scouting principles are based on absolute truth - it is better to
be honest than to lie, it is better to show integrity in your life than to just slip by."
--Jeb Bush, to some Boy Scouts
Hey Jeb, does character matter when you're rigging an election?
Tucker Carlson calls Reagan "uncivilized terrorist."
by the Last Honest Reporter
On Crossfire Tuesday night, Tucker
said the reason Arafat is a terrorist and Sharon is not, is their intent.
He said Sharon does not target innocent civilians
and children and that
leaders who target innocent civilians and children are "uncivilized terrorists."
Let's not forget, Ronald Reagan, The God of War,
targeted Khadahfi's kids
when he ordered his compound bombed in Libya in the eighties.
Khadahfi lost a young daughter in that raid.
"Nyah, nyah - gotcha!"
Subject: Clinton Legacy
Hey BC -
Just a little tidbit from the Citizen Clinton story from yesterday -
>"Sensitive to the charge that the good times
were not his doing,
> he was cheered by U.S. Census figures showing that while the
> Reagan boom lifted 50,000 children out of poverty,
> the Clinton boom did the same for 4.1 million."
I wonder, can the ditto monkeys do math?
Tally - no.
Bush Relies on Polls to Deceive the Public
Have you ever wondered why Bush emphasizes certain words in his sentences,
like they were manufactured?
Wonder no more - they were!
"A Washington Monthly analysis of Republican National Committee disbursement
filings revealed that Bush's
principal pollsters received $346,000 in direct payments in 2001. Add to that the multiple boutique polling firms
the administration regularly employs for specialized and targeted polls and the figure is closer to $1 million.
That's about half the amount Clinton spent during his first year;
but while Clinton used polling to craft popular
policies, Bush uses polling to spin unpopular ones---arguably a much more cynical undertaking. Bush's principal
pollster, Jan van Lohuizen, and his focus-group guru, Fred Steeper, are the best-kept secrets in Washington...
They toil in the background, poll-testing the words and phrases the
president uses to sell his policies to an
often-skeptical public." When will the media expose Bush's poll-manufactured vocabulary?
"Condi and Unka Dick told me I'm
the most trusted president ever."
Tuesday on the vulgar Pigboy's show, his
ditto-monkey army was bitching
and whining about how horrible it was that Carville and Begala, who represent
the majority of voters in America, are actually allowed to express an opinion
on Crossfire that differs from Karl Rove and the mainstream pro-Bush media.
There's almost an entire generation that
has grown up without having heard
a non-ditto-monkey opinion. These people are shell-shocked that there might
be a voice of dissent in a country where the right to vote was stolen.
All they've heard since Bush pardoned the
Iran-Contra gang is that Bill Clinton
was a draft-dodging, dope-smoking, child-raping, crack-baby-fathering scumbag.
They have no idea what the majority thinks because the rich minority refuses
to let both sides of an issue hit the airwaves.
Will this change in our lifetime?
Sure it will - just as soon as money is no longer the driving force behind the news.
“I say it’s time for our representatives in
Congress — even those afraid of
not being re-elected — and for our citizen leaders, for each and every one
of us to stand up and speak out. This is not a question of party, but of principle.”

Things are heating up in the Pacific
April 3, 1942
Japanese bombers hit Mandalay, killing 2000 and destroying much of the city.
The Japanese open their final offensive
on Bataan with a five-hour artillery
and air bombardment, followed by infantry attacks supported armor.
The tank support, limited as it was, still forced the US-Filipino defensive positions.
Resistance was collapsing quickly.
all hope Condi, Colin and Vice Oil aren't stupid enough
to let the idiot Bush boy put American troops in Israel.
That would GUARANTEE increased violence there.
That would GUARANTEE dozens/hundreds of American dead.
That would GUARANTEE a repeat of Reagan's Beirut disaster where we lost 241 brave men.
It would be nice if we could depend on the Senate MAJORITY to
stop this madness,
but, of course, they will green light every bungle the Bush boy gets us into.

Subject: Question about Gene Lyons
What happened to your site hosting his columns?
I really liked them, and I would forward them to five or six
acquaintances who, or some strange reason, do not read your site.
Can they come back, or is there some kind of copyright issue?
Nathan, Gene has gone AWOL.
He was last seen in Monterey, Texas, drunk on Jim Beam with two hookers.
No, wait, that was Governor Bush - not Gene Lyons
Gene is in LA working on his BIG film project, The Hunting of the President.
Unrestrained by laws or morality,
Bush continues to savage the Constitution,
plunder funds from Social Security,
and bungle America into wars
so his oil buddies can earn.

Is Criticized for Mideast Role
by David E Sanger and Michael R Gordon of the NYWTimes
Mr. Bush, his voice tinged with resentment during brief comments in
the Oval Office this morning, also grew testy about suggestions that he
had kept his distance from the conflict. He said those who maintained he
was insufficiently engaged "must not have been with me in Crawford
when I was on the phone all morning long talking to world leaders."
Gee, "all morning long?"
That's a lot of work for a tenth-wit.
I'll bet Condi gave him a pin to wear that said, "I did work today!"
by Maureen Dowd - she hates everybody - today, it's Governor Bush
"We don't stick our finger in the air trying to figure out which way the wind is blowing," Bush
told steelworkers last August. "I do what I think is right for the American people. And we'll let
the political chips fall where they may." As it turns out, the chips are not falling quite so randomly.
The Bush White House, mirabile dictu, is
giving the Clinton White House a run for its polling money.
Karl Rove, a master of nasty push-polling for tobacco companies and politicians (the kind used to
destroy John McCain in the South Carolina primary), devours polls as rapaciously as Dick Morris.

Can’t Stand By While Mideast Burns
by Joe Conason
"...the Bush administration’s decision to abstain from diplomacy in the Middle East—and even
to mock former President Clinton’s strenuous engagement—was a disastrous mistake, with
consequences yet to be fully revealed. The "tough-minded" foreign-policy veterans surrounding
George W. Bush ought to have known better than to abandon Mr. Clinton’s unfinished business,
no matter what they might feel about him or his policies."

How 'Bout Relocating Israel to Mexico?
That's why I'm asking you both to consider my big idea of moving Israel to the lovely
and sparsely populated Mexican state of Baja California Sur. Presidente Fox, you're the
first democratically elected leader of Mexico, and most Mexican Jews voted for you.
Prime Minister Sharon, you're an old warrior who needs a vacation and a bucket of
Corona beer on the beach. Israel has money and smarts. Mexico has a bright future
but could use a few hundred billion in foreign investment.
Yeah, it's easy to invite Israel to move to some other
We could only guarantee their safety on our turf, moron.

Union forces occupied the Confederate capital of Richmond, Va.
Confederate forces took it back, along with Washington
outlaw Jesse James was shot to death in St. Joseph, Mo.
Senator Don Nickles (R-Knuckledragger) says on Meet the Press that
Hillary will be indicted any day for this "unspeakable atrocity."
Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous "mountaintop" speech to
a rally of striking sanitation workers. Republican party wonders aloud,
"What will it take to shut that nigger up?"
Doctor King was assassinated the next day in Memphis, Tenn.,
an Air Force jetliner carrying Ron Brown and others crashed in Croatia,
killing all 35 people aboard. Rush Limbaugh begins the most fun of his life, blaming
Clinton for Brown's "murder," and playing funeral footage hundreds of times, backwards,
upside-down, slow motion etc, while giggling and laughing, that godless son of a bitch.
Unabomber Theodore Kaczynski was fingered by his brother.
Candace Gingrich refused comment.
Poppy Bush , speaking in Philadelphia, said members of Congress should retire
after 12 years. Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond led the standing ovation.
Governor Weak and Stupid begged communist China to quickly release
the American crew of a damaged Navy spy plane. When they refused,
Bush said he was "very sorry" they flew near Chinese airspace.
When China still refused, Bush fell to his knees, openly weeping, and said
the United States was "very, very sorry," and promised to back China's bid
for the Olympics and to have his uncle green light trillions more in trade.

promised to restore integrity to the White House
and demand the highest standard of ethics from all members of his team.
Of course, Bill Clinton made the same
pledge. But, unlike Clinton,
everyone expected Bush to keep his promise. He hasn't."

I am searching for reasons why Bill Press should not be criticized
"everyone" expected Clinton to break his promises, but I'm coming up dry.
Bill, I'd say you have some explaining to do.
Why would you say that about our last legally-elected president?
