Humiliation for Powell at Earth summit
The US Secretary of Failed Excuses, Colin Powell was booed, heckled and jeered
as he tried to defend America's environmental record on the closing day of the world
summit in Johannesburg today. Delegates from non-governmental groups in the
audience repeatedly interrupted his speech, chanting: "Shame on Bush".
Poor Colin Powell.
He's at the whim of the stupidest man he's ever met - and hung out to dry,
his opinions dismissed and ridiculed by a moron who's not even a semi-colon.
We know why Powell was hired - to make it appear that Bush could
If Powell was half-a-man, he wouln't stand for this abuse. If these oil pirates are going to
blindside him, again and again - why does he stay? What price prestige?
Isn't he harming the image of the successful black man by being
a stooge for Bush?
Young black kids across America, and indeed the world, will learn from Powell that
if a black man wants to make it, he must find the son of the owner, kiss his ass,
and be humiliated by him again and again if he wants to get ahead.

Also, tonight is the West Wing rerun where Leo has to tell
Jed that he needs to stop
being such a weenie liberal dove and stand up and do what needs to be done.
A scumbag needs dying, and Jed the Dove would rather wring his hands and worry.
I suppose the ditto-monkeys will say this is a parallel to Iraq,
but the difference is,
on tonight's West Wing they have actual proof that the guy needs dying.
It's not just a case of an unelected president trying to steal somebody else's oil.

One went for an ATV ride at dusk in the Valley of Fire State Park, a windowpane moment..
One went to clown around with the Circus Circus circus.

Some experts doubt that the U.S. was ever serious about capturing Osama. If he went on trial for 9-11,
after all, his testimony about his years with the CIA could prove devastatingly embarrassing. This explains,
they say, why Bush refused Taliban offers to turn over bin Laden, why Donald Rumsfeld bombed rather
than invaded by ground, why Colin Powell never asked Pakistan to seal the border, why General Tommy
Franks relied on unreliable local troops. And the Tora Bora escape tale doesn't jibe with Afghan topography
or local eyewitnesses, who say that Osama left for Pakistani Kashmir --a far more typical exit for fleeing
Afghans than the tribal areas of the Northwest Frontier Province--days after 9-11.
Pot calls kettle 'evildoer'
by Molly Ivins
Excuse me: I don't want to be tacky or anything, but hasn't it occurred to anyone that
sending Dick Cheney out to champion an invasion of Iraq on the grounds that Saddam Hussein
is a "murderous dictator" is somewhere between bad taste and flaming hypocrisy?
When Dick Cheney was CEO at Halliburton,
he did $23.8
million in business with
Saddam Hussein, the evildoer "prepared to share his weapons of mass destruction with terrorists."
So if Saddam is "the world's worst leader,"
how come Cheney sold him the
equipment to get his dilapidated oil fields up and running
so he to could afford to build weapons of mass destruction?
Yep, this administration couldn't survive a free press.
If this was a question about Clinton's zipper, the whore press would ask 10,000 questions.
Remember Tim the Whore badgering White House staffers for details about Clinton's cock?
He couldn't stop talking about it - "because we have a right to know the truth."
a whore named Tim
But since it's just another example of the GOP arming terrorists, the press lets it slide.
...just like Mr. Rove ordered.

Subject: Nuns at Catholic grade schools
I spent eight years in a catholic grade
school where almost all the teachers were nuns, as was the principal.
In those eight years, I saw (and heard of) my share of abuse. Of course, this was in the 60's, so corporal
punishment was still in vogue.
But I'm writing to point out that, while
this was reprehensible, it was far from common. Of the couple
dozen nuns I knew, only two or three should have been relegated to an institution instead of teaching.
In fact, I think at least one of them was!
On the plus side, I remember the summer
when I was 14 (just graduated from grade school) and had to
have emergency surgery for an injury. When I woke up after surgery, there were two nuns in my room
from my grade school (my mother had left the room for a few minutes.) They were just sitting there reading.
In my post-anasthetic stupor, I asked what they were doing there. Their reply was that they had walked
down from the convent (a good three miles) to be sure someone would be with me when I woke up.
I guess what I'm saying is that, in my experience,
almost all the nuns we kids knew were very smart and
compassionate people who took a great deal of interest in the development and well-being of their young charges.
These women remained friends of our family for many years until the school was closed and they went back east.
Love your site!
Sally, when I was 16, I knew some good ones, too.
When I had my broken femurs, nuns and priests were always coming by, the nuns gave me "foot rubs"
and the priest played chess with me, everyday (kicked my ass - every time). I even had a "private priest,"
who'd say Mass in my hospital room. It was so funny, because I was the same way then as I am now.
The priest would start in with some Catholic voodoo and I'd stop
him and ask if he was really serious.
Anytime he'd start with that "sheep and the flock" business, I'd groan and roll my eyes.
He'd explain to me his point of view, and we'd debate, right there during my private mass.
I was always respectful of him, but I never pulled any punches. He never gave up on me,
so yes, if I've given the impression that they're all guilty, that was not my intention.
That was a nice memory - I haven't thought of either of them in a decade or two - thanks.

"When Bush took office, surrounded by a well-seasoned,
experienced Cabinet, many were
willing to believe that even if Dubya himself was something of a dim bulb, the light and
competence emanating from those around him would lift him up and make the government
look good. But after 9/11, and more recently, it seems more and more evident that these guys,
with their limited short-term blinders on, don't really know what the hell they're doing, other
than blustering their way through with threats and aggressive behavior."

Plan, Or Just Insanity?

"...Colin Powell and Dick Cheney, seem to be involved in a potentially costly game of "chicken. "
between themselves rather than with the dictator of Baghdad. Mr. Cheney’s allies in the media

their pressure (even as damaging news of his possible early resignation leaked in Time magazine.)

The other night, as I listened to Dennis Miller compare sparing Iraq of unilateral assault
with Neville Chamberlin's acquiescence to Hitler, I was relieved to realize that the last
of his intelligent writers must have finally escaped.
So we are to believe Saddam is in the same
position today that Hitler was in 1939?
Yeah, and if Dennis Miller isn't stopped he'll become the next Will Rogers.
I suppose Miller's Iraq comments were inevitable
-- two years on MNF gave him plenty
of practice making public pronouncements about things of which he knew nothing.
Now that he's done with NBC and Tribune
Broadcasting and ABC and HBO,
Miller is apparently auditioning for a spot on FOX News.
Barry, was kidding, right?
Last night on Leno, former comedian Miller went into his "we must murder everyone" rant,
then closed with, "But what do I know? I'm not even an Irish rock singer."
Then he whined about losing two high-profile jobs this year.
Dennis, if you continue to allign yourself with President Weak
your only real chance at employment might be Fox News.
Good stuff, Barry!

White House in disarray over Cheney speech
by Julian Borger in Washington
George Bush has moved to distance himself from Whistle Dick Cheney
after he learned a sabre-rattling speech on Iraq by Cheney was made
without clearing key points with the White House.
I'm not Lying
Cheney IS the White House
Cheney is more the White House than Runnynose Bunnypants.
With whom is Cheney supposed to clear his remarks?
The ignorant chimp?
The boy without a brain?
The wimp who lost a battle with a pretzel?
What's the real purpose of this headline?
To make us think Dim Son actually has some power?
Who's got the balls to scold Cheney?
The chimp wouldn't be in office without his brain, Cheney,
so how's the governor going to show displeasure with his brain?
If Weak & Stupiod really had some power in this White House,
he would speak without reading someone else's prepared text.

but it is far from finished.
