Volume 871 - Abortionist Loses Primary 

See the anti-bush stuff that E-Bay censors.


 Wednesday   August 21, 2002.................................... .............................................. 


"Maybe Mr Perle would like to be in the first wave of those who go into Baghdad."
     -- Republican Senator Chuck Hagel,

  Yep, if he's fighting back, he must be a Republican

 Well, we lost Bob Barr and Cynthia McKinney

 What the hell kind of goofy state laws does Georgia have?
 They let Republicans vote in Democrat primaries?

 State laws are almost always the stupidest laws in the world.
 We don't need 50 sets of rules - we're one nation, right?
 Aren't we the UNITED States?
 Or are we the fifty states north of Mexico?

 I heard the White House was gunning for McKinney, because revenge
 is one of the cornerstones of the BFEE, and McKinney was asking
 questions about Bush's possible involvement in September 11th,
 so she had to go and the White House fixed her good.

 Bob Barr?
 Can't get too happy about that.
 Look what happened when we "got rid of" John Ashcroft?

 I imagine he'll end up succeeding Chuckles Heston at the NRA
 The spot has to be filled by a religiously insane tobacco whore and
 total gun nut and Bob Barr fits that job description like a snug strap on..

 Bush plays games over deficit
     by E.J. Dionne Jr.

  Click  Here

"And all of the spending differences Bush listed are chicken feed compared with the long-term costs
 of Bush's tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. Thus, the strangest fact about the aftermath of the
 president's economic summit last week: after using the event to show he cares, really cares, about
 what's happening to the economy, the president has fallen back on purely symbolic politics...

 If President Bush is willing to risk large deficits over the long run to keep his tax cuts
 and all his spending priorities, he should just say so.

 Bush guts corporate crime law
   By Nathan Newman

  Click  Here

"Bush has no shame. Within hours of signing the corporate accountability bill and trumpeting his
 supposed tough new attitude on corporate crime, Bush issued a legal "interpretation" from the
 White House that gutted the protections in the law for corporate whistleblowers who tip off
 Congression-al investigators of company abuses...

 If Bush keeps up this defense of his corporate cronies, the American people will hopefully
 be returning him to his beloved private sector at the next election."

 Jon Stewart had another great show last night.

 1. He showed video of the guy who got beat up by karate students
     after he tried to hijack thei mini-van. Poor bastard was groaning.

 2. He ridiculed Bush for promising not to sell the White House, and then
     having big campaign controbutors spend the night in the White House.
     When asked if they stayed in the Lincoln Berdoom, the WH replied,
    "There are many bedrooms in the WH besides the Lincoln Bedroom."

     Jon said, "They must think we're retarded to give us that answer."
     He's right - the press and the Democrats just let Bush get away with that horseshit.

 3. He ridiculed the "message backdrops" behind Bush.

     I wish the Democratic party did their jobs as well as Jon Stewart.


"Sean Hannity's book hit the shelves on Tuesday.
  This book will be a bestseller because of the blurb that I wrote for the jacket."
     --Rush, who never stops bragging about his self-perceived "greatness."

  I wonder how many tugboats it would take to dock his ego?

 Sensenbrenner wants answers on Patriot Act
  He threatens to subpoena Ashcroft to get details on anti-terror measure

  Click  Here

 U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner said Monday he'll play hardball with John Ashcroft over
 a congressional demand for detailed information about the Patriot Act, the post-Sept. 11
 law giving the government broad powers to investigate terrorism.

 Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) said he would "start blowing a fuse" unless Ashcroft's Justice
 Department gives answers by Labor Day week to 50 written questions about the act
 raised by the House Judiciary Committee in June.

 I hope our special BartFest guest stars don't see this, but thank Koresh for the GOP.
 It's somewhat comforting to know that SOMEONE is willing to fight the illegal Bush takeover.
 Let's hope our future does NOT rest with the Freepers, the NRA, Barr, Burton, Jim Jeffords etc.
 Hell, Larry Klayman and Dick Armey are even making some sense these days.

 Remember when Begala said,
"When goofy ideas go to $40 a barrel,
  I want the drilling rights to Dick Armey's head?"
 Right now, Klayman and Armey are fighting Bush - while Demos are begging Mr Rove for mercy.
 We're living in the damn Bizarro world.

 When Bush started talking about using our own military against us, the Democrats said, "OK!"
 while The Freepers were saying, "Bush is a power-hungry madman."

 Right now, with the Democrats scared, AWOL and asleep, we've got nothing but the right to look out for us.
 We need somebody with guts to stand up - somebody like a Julie Hiatt Steele or a Susan McDougal.

  Bush Reads a Book, World Awaits Result
     by Joe Conason

   Click  Here

 In theory, Mr. Cohen’s analogy would embolden this President Bush to act more boldly than his father;
 to disregard or discipline those uniformed dissenters who warn against war-making; to demand action
 and answers rather than excuses, and so on. It all sounds good, and in some circumstances would be good.
(For instance, it would be very good if Mr. Bush demanded answers about the apparent escape of Osama
 bin Laden from Afghanistan, rather than pretending that the capture of Al Qaeda’s Führer never had been
 a prime objective of our operations there.)

 Chickenhawk Daydreams
    by Gene Lyons

 The most crucial question facing Americans this election year is whether an unelected president
 will drag us into an undeclared war in Iraq. Most Democrats, however, don't want to talk about it.
 Try finding a Democrat running for the U.S. Senate--Arkansas' Mark Pryor comes to mind--who's
 taken a strong position for or against what President Junior smugly calls "regime change" with the
 passionate conviction of the CEO of a fast food chain touting a new line of fries.


"Laura Bush will be visiting France, Hungary and the Czech Republic next week without Dubya.
 When he was asked why he wasn’t going to Europe with her, he said,
 "She’s not going to Europe, she’s visiting France, Hungary and the Czech Republic."
         --Conan O'Brien

 If anyone has the complete weekend issue, #869, let me know.
 It's probably near 40K in size, all I could recover was 28K.

 That Vegas weekend

 The weekend we're gathering here's some of who's in town.

 Penn & Teller @ The Rio, The Grand Slam for Children (Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation)
 on Saturday, Sept. 28 at the MGM Grand - Elton John, Martina McBride, Dennis Miller,
 Robin Williams, Babyface, Sheryl Crow and Carlos Santana - and others.

 Also, I'm hoping to get a list of BIG games we can bet on that weekend.
 We'll have baseball (possibly) college football, pro football etc.

 Oil Prices Near $30 a Barrel, a 15-Month High

  The price of crude oil rose to its highest level in 15 months, surging 50 percent
  this year and may already be a drag on the weakening economic recovery.

  Nothing makes oil prices skyrocket like a war in the Middle East.
  All Bush has to say it "Terra will not stand," and he makes billions.

 Bush the Nazi?

 i sure wish you wouldn't throw around the word "nazi" so much, or keep
 showing cartoons with nazi imagery and comparing bush with hitler.
 believe me i'm in agreement with most everything you say about the b.f.e.e.,
 but there's evil and there's evil.  in nazi germany about 10 MILLION people
 were systematically killed.  it's in a different class.  i find it somewhat belittling
 to those 10 million when we compare the evil going on today in this country
 (and it is evil, i agree, don't get me wrong) with evil on that level.

 that said, keep up the great work.


 Denise, I'll grant you that Hitler was probably more evil than the B.F.E.E.,
 but the difference between Bush and Hitler is we KNOW what Hitler's crimes were.

 The B.F.E.E. stole their way into power in 1980, and were caught committing global crimes
 that needed a presidential pardon to remain hidden. The B.F.E.E. stole their way into power
 again in 2000, and this is the most arrogant and secretive presidency in history and we STILL
 don't have the slightest clue what severe crimes were buried with that Bush pardon.

 Let's hope you're right and I'm wrong.

Last Liberal on the Radio in NYC Gone

Lynn Samuels was fired from her radio show in New York last Thursday.
The reason given by the program director was 'budget cuts'.
If we do not speak up, we will lose our voice in America.. LITERALLY!

I STRONGLY encourage everyone to support our Progressive friends who are on the air now!!

 The best story concerns Rush Limbaugh, the ferociously bellicose radio personality, who allegedly
 had either "anal cysts" or an "ingrown hair follicle on his bottom". It is not my custom to mock others'
 ailments, but anyone who has listened to Limbaugh's programme can imagine the dripping scorn he
 would bring to the revelation that a prominent Democrat had skipped a war over something like that.
 Also, in his case, a pain in the arse is peculiarly appropriate.

 9am Friday – Breakfast again on the patio at Lago, followed by four hours of poolage.
 Total Heaven.  Grabbed a float mat, cocktail… aaaaaah.

 4pm – Met Mike at Chinois, and proceeded to eat our way stupid again. Noted there was also a bottle
 of Chincao Anejo here as well. During the week, the drinks are half price and so is the sushi – at the
 main bar only. They do a great Caterpillar Role, and their Shrimp and Chicken pot stickers are wonderful!

Subject: Mallard Fillmore


I had never read a Mallard Fillmore comic until I read his name on your site.
You mentioned that he's a liar and unfunny but (I know, I know, I should
have learned by now that I can take your word for it) I thought,
"How could a comic writer/artist be a liar...They're comic strips!"

Then I looked him up.  I couldn't believe how disgusted and angry I got.
Pretty sad that people pay him to do what he does.

Czar, and before people say I'm just prejudiced, I can appreciate a anti-Clinton joke
from Leno or Dave, (altho it's generally a really, really lazy blow job joke) and people
like PJ O'Rourke can be damn funny, even when they're lying/stretching a point.

But Mallard Fillmore is one unfunny duck. in its second year!
Woo Hoo!

 Why subscribe to
   by the benefactor who's matching all new subscriptions

 Keep pounding that hammer.  I wish more people would subscribe, even at the $5 level.
 In Influence: Science and Practice (4th Edition), Robert B. Cialdini groups influence techniques
 into six categories: reciprocation, consistency, social proof, liking, authority, and scarcity.

 Reciprocation -- Bartcop has done something for me, so I ought to do something for Bartcop.

 Consistency -- I'm a radical kind of guy that likes to make a difference, it would be inconsistent
 with my identity to just sit on my fat ass while Bartcop does all the risk taking and heavy lifting.

 Social proof -- Millions of Bartcop subscribers can't be wrong.
 Subscribing to Bartcop must be the right thing to do.

 Liking --  Bartcop -- I love that guy.  I guess I ought to help him out.

 Authority -- Julie and the Big Dog both say I should subscribe, and so do 5 out 6 doctors surveyed.
 Sounds good to me. Where do I sign up?

 Scarcity -- You mean there only 5 Bartcop subscriptions left and then they're all gone?
 I've got to get mine before the hoarders get them!

 Bin Laden: from 'Evil One' to Unmentionable One

  Click  Here

 President Bush used to call him "the evil one" but in recent months Osama bin Laden
 has become the unmentionable one, replaced by Saddam Hussein as the chief enemy.

 With the help of his good puppy press, Bush can pretend he never promised
 to bring bin Laden to justice. He's never been accountable for any broken promises.
