 Making Bush tell the truth about Iraq
  The media has to be tougher on the president's tendency
  to dissemble about his policies, and then again when he's
  caught -- especially when it comes to war.
         by Brendan Nyhan

 Bush has been protected by his reputation for honesty, the media's distaste for complex
 policy issues and -- since Sept. 11 -- his status as a wartime president. As a result, the
 administration has gotten a pass when it has used deceptive, even dishonest arguments to
 sell key pieces of its agenda, most notably the tax cut and Bush's plan to create private
 Social Security accounts. And even when serious questions about its arguments have
 been raised, the White House has dissembled wildly rather than admit mistakes or mendacity.

 From: John DP

 Subject: A Few Election Thoughts

 First of all, it is hysterical watching the media and the white house spin the fact that this election
 is a "mandate" for Bush.  Or that this election somehow conveys legitimacy to the unelected fraud.
 Or that there is such a groundswell of support for Mr. Bush that the Democrats need to get out
 of the way.  A total of 41,000 votes would have swung the election another way.

 In fact, only about 21% of registered voters pulled the lever for the Repugnicans last Tuesday night.
 Yes, the evil doers got more than we got, but a broad mandate its not.   Now on the topic of Bush's
 masterful command of the campaign and how the Republicans are such fabulous politicians, that too,
 is bullshit.  In each close Senate race, the winners (Coleman, Talent, Chambliss and Allard) ran as
 Democrats by blurring the line on significant issues like Social Security PRIVATIZATION, while at
 the same time used hateful slash and burn negative advertising against their opponent.

 Take a case in point with Saxby Chambliss in Georgia.  How a man who avoided military service
 (Chambliss) successfully paint a man who volunteered for duty in Viet Nam and who left three of his
 limbs on the battlefield (Cleland) as soft on national defense issues is beyond me.  But obviously not
 beyond the ignorant crackers in Georgia.  So the lesson of the election is if you are a Repugnican and
 you want to win, run like a Democrat and demonize your opponent.  Its the Republican way.

 Another lesson here is to NEVER go along with Bush.  Look at what he did to Jean Carnahan,
 Cleland and others who supported him on his tax cuts for the greedy.  He came back into their states
 and thumped their pink tu tu asses.  Some payback.

 Why in the world would you trust the unelected fraud on ANYTHING is beyond me.
 And finally, the religiously insane kept a pretty low profile during this election, but you can be sure
 their agenda will get a strong hearing up on Capital Hill.  You do not see Jerry Falwall, Ralph Reed
 and the other sanctimonious pricks threatening to split and create a new party like Saint Ralph and
 the Greens.  They take their lumps when they cannot have each and every thing on their agenda,
 but they stick with the Repugnicans like glue.  We could take a lesson.

 Hey, not sure where that is, but there's no snow in Mexico and they have fine tequila there.

 The Pentagon has begun to administer smallpox vaccinations to it's personnel in anticipation of

 provisions in the Homeland Security Bill will receive the vaccination when the U.S. government
 causes the smallpox outbreak.

 Subject: We're going to be rich, right?

 Wednesday morning, I read CNN.com in horror, realizing that a single party had total control
 of the government. I fully expect about 3 or 4 the Supreme Court Justices to retire now so that
 they can be replaced by other conservative justices with no resistance from Congress.

 As the day wore on, I had time to think about the situation. For one, I think the people really need
 to see the results of having an unbalanced government. When a single point of view gets its way,
 the results are probably going to be very bad. For another, I'm sick of that party's whining about
 how they NEVER get their way.

 Ok, boys, have at it. Let's see how good "your way" is for the country.



"In Nevada voters rejected legalized pot. I guess legalized pot would send
  the wrong message to Nevada’s young gamblers and prostitutes.
       -- Conan

 Subject: Last Tuesday

 After Tuesday, I have become very afraid for our country. The first thing that popped into
 mind was "without anyone to keep Bush in check, what is going to happen?"

 Then I realized that no one has been keeping Bush in check. Certainly, it's nice to keep his
 ultraconservative judicial nominees from being affirmed, but the democrats have not taken up
 any strong issue. They let the PATRIOT act pass without a fight, and they even approved
 giving him the power to unilaterally strike (read invade) Iraq. They haven't even tried to
 pass corporate accountability laws!

 Where is the Democratic leadership?

 (They are under a table like Bernie Shaw in Baghdad, wetting their pants and cowering
  in fear that Karl Rove and VP Snarl might not be pleased with their rate of ass-kissing.)

 Hopefully, whoever emerges as the new Democratic leader will have backbone. He or she
 will press issues such as corporate accountability. That person will not be a "yessir" to Bush
 or any other republican, and that person will stand up for what is right.

 It is time for change. The Dems have nothing else to lose... it's time to fight.

 Now the Senate has no brakes. George W. Bush Inc. owns all three branches of government
 - as well as the Supreme Court. America has become that truck plunging down Moosic Street
 without any way of stopping. The only difference is that the driver is smiling."

 The Daily Brew has a great article

 More than 60% of the American public believes Saddam Hussein was a co-conspirator in the attacks of 9-11,
 despite the fact that the Central Intelligence Agency had issued a report concluding that no connection existed.
 A majority also believe that the so-called "death tax" will apply to them, despite the fact that fewer than 2.5%
 of Americans actually possess sufficient net worth to be eligible. Most Americans believe that the recent
 recession was caused by 9-11, despite the fact that it began prior to the attack. Many Americans believe that
 the deficits projected by the government are unrelated to the tax cuts signed into law by Bush, although both the
 CBO and the GAO have concluded that the tax cuts will greatly exacerbate the problem.

 That leadership does deserve blame for this defeat. And there is an honorable tradition of demanding
 accountability from those who are responsible. Gephardt deserves credit for removing himself swiftly,
 and let us hope that he doesn't nourish too many illusions about his future. Tom Daschle should probably
 be next, having made the worst use of his best qualities during the past two years. He allowed himself and
 his members to be battered ideologically without fighting back until it was far too late; he resisted bad policy
 without vociferously arguing the Democratic case to the electorate. Quiet toughness is admirable, except
 when the other side is shouting every day.

 Subject: I've found my new Bible

 For years it has been Al Franken's "Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot."
 Today, however, I picked up "It's Still the Economy, Stupid" by Paul Begala.

 I'm already over halfway through it. It is a MUST read for all Democrats.
 Using clear, irrefutable logic and facts, Begala goes over the Clinton Miracle
 and shows just who Shrub is the worst thing to happen since, well...his dad.

 Who Do I Blame?

Bush promised to get bin Laden.
He vowed "to bring him to justice or bring justice to him."
That's why his approval numbers went to the high eighties.
That was 412 days ago ...and counting

 Subject: Gephardt

 Dear Bart:

 Gephardt is resigning from his leadership position. I have never been one of his supporters
 and I agree that he deserves a lot of the blame for what happened Nov 5. Call me a bleeding heart,
 but I actually feel some compassion for him. He has always been an advocate for civil rights and
 equality and I'm not about to forget that just because I'm angry.

 I think it's time to stop taking cheap shots against him. He did the honorable thing in the end and
 deserves some respect, at least from Democrats. Please remove him from your hit-list.


 Hector, I don't plan to publish Dick Gephardt - Lying Nazi Whore or anything...
 Truth is, Gephardt and Daschle produced last Tuesday's disaster.

 They are like football coaches who didn't win a game the last two years.
 They may be nice guys, but the Democrats can't afford "nice" right now.

Yeah, well.  We just have to take the word of the voting machine companies.
Thanks to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act you'd be looking at a minimum of 5 years
federal time if you dig into the computer code of those machines to look for the fraud.

99-1 vote in the Senate -- including Saint Wellstone.
Being his constituent, it's a damn shame I long ago threw away

You could post _that_ on your site.

The sad thing is, the DMCA was just a warm up for what government and industry have
coming down to make sure the internet loses the freedom it has.  Right to bear arms be damned.
America is already armed to the teeth.  But it's important to be educated about _technology_ rights

 Stop all the talk about how the Democratic Party ain't left enough.
 That's not the problem.   A left wing party in this country will never
 win elections in the current political environment.
 The US is a conservative country, like it or not.

 Well, I can agree with some of that.
 If we move too far left, we'll be as successful as Dukakis and Mondale were.
 Clinton showed us the winning formula, why can't we use the trail he blazed?

Ho...                 ho...                  ho!
