"I've said many times, people won't elect a
party to defend America
if they refuse to defend themselves. The Democrats have a timidity problem."
-- James Carville, at the end of prime time last night
But fighting is wrong!
It's not right for doves to fight
It makes us just like them.
We'd rather sing 'Kumbaya,'
than call Bush on his crimes.
What I heard America say last night
We want the rich to have more
We want Bush to have more power and more oil
Women can't be trusted make sound decisions on abortion
We need a war with Iraq no matter how many dead it costs us.
We really didn't need the Bill of Rights, anyway
We should leave the important decisions to God
We like what Bush has done with the economy
Black Americans would rather have an all-Republican government
Rush and Fox News are telling the truth
We need more oil men in government
Blacks, gays and women need to take a step back
They want the Supreme Court stacked with "what Bush wants" judges
Of course, none of that is true, but the Democrats refused to
fight, just like Gore in 2000
If they continue to wear the pink tutu, we'll lose 2004, and then Jeb will win in 2008.
Bag o' Hairspray finally won an election
"Jesse Helms in high heels..."
One of the comments in last night's chat room.
For a good part of the evening we had over 100 chatters.
"This is great - now we can retire. With
the GOP controlling the Judiciary Committee,
we'll be sure and get "what Bush wants" judges for the next decade or so."

Life of Deception
by Sam Parry at consortiumnews.com
Bush’s self-certainty appears unshaken despite obvious and costly misjudgments,
including his failure to heed warnings about the al Qaeda terrorist threat in the first months
of his presidency and his rejection of advice that his tax cut would throw the government
into deficit. Rather than admit to flaws or reassess situations, Bush digs in his heels (as with
the tax cut) or moves to block public disclosure of the full story (as with stopping the
proposed independent commission on the Sept. 11 attacks).
Subject: Bush owns everything
Can you believe it?
Bush now owns the white house, congress,
the judiciary and the media.
This is the WORST thing that could happen to this nation. We're fucked.
I expect that soon we will all be forced
to do a lot of things we don't want to do--accept a lot
of things that are truly repugnant to our very nature as Americans--perpetual war, right wing judges,
faith based programs, further inequality in the economy, assaults on the rest of the constitution,
a coronation for the new 'king', and everybody gets a tattoo and an ID card.
Gully, the bottom line is... they wanted it more than we did.
We weren't willing to make the effort.
Oh sure, if it was handed to us we'd accept it, but the Democrats, just like they did in Florida in 2000,
had "other, more important things to do," than fight for what they believe in.
The Republicans were Pete Rose last night, we were Randy Moss.
Things that went right last night
Hutchison the religiously-insane
Republican adulterer gave us a senate seat.
Steve Largent (R-Jesus Twin) lost the OK Gov's seat by 7,000 votes, but so far, Largent had refused
to conceed as this was written. How is it possible that a football player lost in Oklahoma?
Ther guy that beat him, Brad Henry, was endorsed by former OU coach Barry Switzer
Gray Davis is still California governor...
...there's gotta be more good news than that, right?
Jesus, there were 435 House races, 36 governor races and 33 senate
Over 500 races and I can only find three important elections that we won?

Dear Bart -
At the EXACT MOMENT I was reading about
Jeb's list of who's who in Florida - Clinton, Gore,
Jackson and Sharpton - Judy Woodriff was playing a clip of Jeb running down the list.
But guess what!?
They edited out the Jackson/Sharpton part.
Let's not make Jeb look bad.
If they played what Jeb said, voters would know he's a racist.
Now we go to War!
The Democrats lost last night because they
made the mistake of being suckered in to supporting Bush's war.
Most of America had no real choice and decided not to vote. The choice was between a Republican who
supports Bush's war - or a Democrat who supports Bush's war. Why bother to vote? When the Democrats
decided to support a war for political reasons they lost the respect of their supporters.
And now - since war seems to work so well
for the Republicans that there is no doubt now that we will go to war.
And we will have a civil war as well because there is no one in either party who represents the Will of the People.
America is on the wrong side of history. We are a threat to the world. Our allies fear us - as they well should.
The America we have known is over. From this time forward we face war and the distruction of freedom and liberty.

“This ought to be slam-dunk on both sides.
Just with the tradition of off-year elections,
the Democrats ought to be talking about winning12 to 20 seats in the House this election,
and in the Senate, who knows? It shouldn't be nip and tuck as it is.”

Hey, Fuzzball, don't be so smug.
I could beat up Mike Tyson if he refused to fight back.

Excuses: The Democrats Have Only Themselves to Blame
Joe Conason's Journal
A party that will not criticize the incumbent president cannot defeat him,
now or two years from now. A party that has nothing to say about unfair tax breaks,
a vanishing surplus and a looted economy cannot expect anyone to listen when it asks for votes.
A party without passion or vision is hardly a political party at all.
Does Gore Vidal read bartcop.com?
"We know what they want. They want Caspian
Every important player in the administration is from the oil and gas business, mostly Texas.
We conquered Afghanistan in order to put in a pipeline.
We captured Afghanistan because that is the gateway to Caspian Sea oil.
An hour and 20 minutes passed (on 9-11) before any plane goes up.
And we have nothing but fighter planes up and down the United States.
Why didn't the president do anything?
The same people own the media that own
the White House and the Congress and the oil fields.
They all work together to give a false view of the world to the American people."

KURTZ [seemingly amazed]: You hold CNN to a higher standard (than Fox)?
Here Stewart finally asks what so many have wondered since CNN surrendered to the right wing juggernaut.
Jon: Exactly. I expect that from
them. From you guys. I'm upset -- what I don't understand is
why you guys, with the talent and the credibility, would want to take a page out of their playbook.
Why wouldn't you want to take a page out of the more credible?
Why wouldn't you go towards the other -- why would you go louder when you could go smarter?

Pete, there's always a senate filibuster to stop some wild Bush
but that would take Democratic courage - something in very short supply.
In the days leading up to the mid-term elections, my hubby and I spent our time preparing to do battle
(gladiator style), against the fascists republicans. We voted today, and hopefully our ballots were not
cast in vain, but wanted to let you know we had the spirit of Bartcop with us in our preparations.
We the faithful here in Florida are still
fighting the good fight against the likes of Katherine (cough) Harris.
I know I am a lady and should not curse like a sailor, but when you slog through the trenches fighting
history's most vile female creation, one tends to get dirty. Enclosed is a pic of our handmade sign,
one of several we toted, stumped and waved around Sarasota County trying to raise the hammer higher
- and I must say the response to them was awesome.
Yours in Bartcop spirit.
“When you go in the Oval Office and see the
door leading off to the private area
where the Clinton and Monica stuff happened, you get incensed. You're incensed
that in this room where so much greatness has been and so many great things have
happened and so much responsibility exists, that that thought even occurs to you.
It makes you mad.”
That's the room where Bush talked Reagan into giving missles to Islamic Jihad.
That's the room where Reagan signed a document that funded bin Laden.
That's the room where Reagan signed a document that funded Noriega.
That's the room where Reagan signed a document that funded Saddam.
That's the room where Reagan signed condolence cards for the 240 marines he got killed.
That's the room where Bush pardoned the Iran-Contra criminals to bury his crimes.
That's the room where Reagan demanded the Challenger shuttle be launched early.
That's the room where Reagan took his damn naps.
That's the room where Dim Son signed a document that gave $43M to the Taliban..
It's also the room where Clinton signed his budgets that turned deficits into surpluses.
Bart, did you see this headline today?
U.S. kills Cole suspect
CIA drone launched missile

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it Dim
Son who stopped the Predator
program because he didn't want to just send a missile up some camel's ass,
or words to that effect? Didn't the ditto monkeys deride Bill Clinton for the
Predator program and the Cruise missile strikes? Haven't we spent a number
of months blundering around in Afghanistan, bombing civilians and devastating
an already devastated country, with no results to show for it? And now, one
Predator drone knocks out a wanted Al Qaeda suspect and five of his troops
without the loss or wounding of a single American, or, for the matter of that,
without the loss of a single Afghan wedding party.

Subject: Now We'll Never Know The Truth About 9/11
Give Bush credit for helping his party win
back control of the Senate.
He fought so feverishly because his future also depended on it.
Now the investigation into 9/11, about what
Bush knew and when he knew it
will be buried forever.
“If you knew what the Democrats really thought
and said about Bush in private,
your ears would burn. You wouldn't vote for another liberal Democrat the rest
of your life and half the Democrats in this country wouldn't, either, if they could
actually hear these people talk about Bush and Republicans in private.”
