"He can apologize all he wants. It doesn't
the sentiment that escaped his mouth that day."
--Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, on Trent Lott's racism
Do we really have a fighter in there now?
The US and Britain sold Saddam Hussein the technology and materials Iraq needed to
develop nuclear, chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction.
Reports by the US Senate's committee on
banking, housing and urban affairs -- which
oversees American exports policy -- reveal that the US, under Reagan and Bush Sr,
sold materials including anthrax, VX nerve gas, West Nile fever germs and botulism to
Iraq right up until March 1992, as well as germs similar to tuberculosis and pneumonia.
Other bacteria sold included brucella melitensis, which damages major organs,
and clostridium perfringens, which causes gas gangrene.
Is this why Bush can't show us his "hard evidence?"
Because his Daddy's fingerprints are all over the proof?
The B.F.E.E. gave birth to Saddam, Noriega and Osama, and they assisted Hitler,
Islamic Jihad and the Taliban. Bush gave the Taliban $43M in 2001 and everybody knows it
but only independent web sites can mention those things without losing their corprate sponsors.
I'm sure the good puppy media will continue to cover this
Going to war to cover the crimes of the B.F.E.E. is not a big story for them.
After all, war and death isn't a serious issue- not like an intern's tongue...
Says Lott Made Racist Comment
Looks like Gore has some fight in him - Go Al!
Al Gore said that Trent Lott should be censured for his "racist statement"
that the nation would have been better off if Strom Thurmond had won
the presidency when he ran on a segregationist ticket in 1948.
Al, I'll say this right now - if you fight like a man from now
until November 2004
you'll probably earn my vote, but you let us down once - don't to it again.
Not So Invincible After All
by Gene Lyons
The White House threw everything it had at Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu and she still handily
defeated a handpicked Bush opponent. Democrats also picked up a previously Republican
congressional seat. The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that last-minute tactical advice by
Bill Clinton made the difference.
As I argued in November, evidence for a
nationwide turn to the GOP is largely imaginary,
and Bush's vaunted popularity about half an inch deep.
Guns N' Roses Tour Down, But Not Out
The promoters, Clear Channel, still would not acknowledge that the tour is finished

The United States will continue to make clear that it reserves the right to respond with
overwhelming force -- including through resort to all our options -- to the use of WMD
against the US, our forces abroad, and friends and allies," the U.S. strategy report said.
"...through resort to all our options?"
Did they let President Happy Crack write that himself?
"Tom Daschle spoke too quickly on Monday when
he said he accepted Lott's explanation
that he hadn't meant his words to be so interpreted. This is a Democratic Party issue.
It is not enough to simply defend or to explain these kinds of statements and then at
election time talk about why black Americans should turn out in large numbers."
--Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Ca)
"It is that kind of a weakness in a guy like
Tom Daschle, where he draws no litmus test line
for very offensive racism that goes into racist policy. Democrats must have some sense of
integrity on this question of racism and gender bias. And I would think there should be a
bipartisan rejection of one whose history and pattern and policy is so overtly insidiously racist."
--Reverend Jesse Jackson
Wait, those quotes aren't dueling - they're both right!
Is there any hope left for Tom Daschle?
Can he lead the Senate Democrats and play for the other team at the same time?
Can he lead the opposition party and cover for President Moron in this dirty oil war?
Trent Lott should be censured and retired home to Massabama for
his racism, and I think
Daschle should step down as minority leader and take his pink damn tutu with him.
Let's burn Daschle's tutu on the Capitol steps as our way of saying "Enough!"
We need a fighter leading the Senate Democrats, not some appeaser de Smirk.
Is Unfit To Run the Senate
by Smoking Joe Conason
Andrew Sullivan demanded on his Web log that the Republicans demote Mr. Lott or
"come out formally as a party that regrets desegregation and civil rights for African-Americans."
Former Bush speechwriter David Frum didn’t go that far in National Review Online, but he too
expressed shock and anger at the Republican leader—as did Weekly Standard editors William
Kristol and Fred Barnes, author David Horowitz and others on the right. (At the lower end of
intellectual evolution, Sean Hannity tried to excuse Mr. Lott, as did Rush Limbaugh.)
The vulgar Pigboy - always last in the class department.
Bush has formally approved $92m to train a pan-Iraqi militia to help fight Saddam.
The Pentagon has been scouring countries looking for bases. A Nato airbase in
southern Hungary emerged yesterday as the favourite site.
Hmmm.. they didn't mention if Halliburton would be given
the contract outright or if they'd
rig a bidding system to give it to them, but either way, it's another $25M for The B.F.E.E.
and since these things always go triple over budget, that leaves $25M for Unka Dick and
$25M to trickle down to the Bush loyalists - ain't a capitalist war grand?
"Lott should resign from his leadership post
to make way for another member of
the Republican Party whose moral compass is pointed toward improving race relations
and not dredging up this nation's poor, polarizing performance of the past."
--Kweisi Mfume, president of the NAACP
by Maureen Dowd
"The lasting mark of that White House was tamping down the post-Watergate zeal for truth,
containing Congressional and media investigations into C.I.A. abuses such as assassinations
of foreign leaders and F.B.I. overreaching on infiltrating civil rights groups.
It was in that battle that the Ford alumni
— Rummy, Cheney & Kissy — forged their worldview
that the greatest threat to the country was the prying eyes of the public, the press and Congress.
Trent Lott may want to turn the clock back
to Jim Crow. Mr. Cheney just wants to go back to a time
before Vietnam and Watergate, when there was more government secrecy and less moral relativism.
by Paul Krugman
"...last week CNN's "Inside Politics" found time to cover Matt Drudge's unconfirmed
(and untrue) allegations about the price of John Kerry's haircuts. "Just two days after
moving closer to a presidential race, John Kerry already is in denial mode," intoned the host.
But when the program interviewed Mr. Lott the day after the Thurmond event,
his apparent nostalgia for segregation never came up.
Hey, I expect CNN to play the whore because there's more money
in it if they
praise the Smirk and diss the Democrats. What I can't stand is when Trent Lott
gets caught making racist statements, Tom Daschle RUNS to the cameras screaming
"He didn't mean it!! He didn't mean it!!"
Pardon my French, but what the fuck is wrong with Tom Daschle?
Why is it HIS place to rescue Lott the Racist?
Did any Republican ever help any Democrat out of a jam?
Is he trying to get Republicans to vote for him in 2004?
Don't we want to win any more elections?
They impeached our legally elected president for no goddamn
and their illigitimate and unelected fraud gets all our respect in return?
But Bart, we must play nice.
Trent is a good man, just like Dubya!
Great Christmas Gifts!
"Oh, yes, my friends! The late Klaus Nomi and

I continue to get these stories about the St Louis Post Dispatch printing a story by a guy who says he
had a three-month gay affair with the Doctor of Disinformation Dropout. Other stories say Rush was
arrested and then fired for soliciting men on whatever that gay street is in Columbia. But I'm not going
to print anything about that until you send me a URL that works.

Rehnquist Under Scrutiny
Crooked is as crooked does - press covers it up for W
Few political appointees are as well connected as Janet Rehnquist. A former White House staff
member for the first President Bush, she's the daughter of Chief Justice William Rehnquist — whose
Supreme Court ensured there would be a second President Bush.
Now, sources tell TIME, GAO investigators
have discovered that documents potentially important to
the inquiry have been shredded. The investigators are focusing on the possible destruction of notes,
e-mails and memos written by top officials in Rehnquist's office. Rehnquist has denied that anything of
significance was shredded, but the discovery prompted Rehnquist's general counsel to pen a
Thanksgiving-week e-mail urging HHS staff to stop shredding.
How slimy are the Republicans?
The campaign of Suzanne Terrell, running against Mary Landrieu
for the US senate
hired a Bill Clinton voice impersonator to read this ugly text:
"Mary Landrieu is so liberal, she might be closer to Hillary than I am."
So, anyone to the left of Rush, Karl Rove and Adolph Hitler must
This is the message Terrell, Bush and the Republican Party stand for?
Gays aren't really human, ...not like you and me.

How Tony Soprano taught us about HUD
Tony and Ralph learn how to use bogus real-estate deals to con money out of HUD.
In a Russian bath house, they enlist the aid of a state assemblyman and his old friend, Maurice Tiffen,
to create a federally funded windfall. All Maurice's minority organization has to do is take ownership
and mortgages on dilapidated properties, and HUD assumes the lending risks involved.

They say Michael Jackson's nose is fake.
Well, we all know that's not his nose, ...but it's worse than that.
They say he worked on his nose so much, ...his nose quit!.
Wait, I'm still not explaining it right.
People who work with Jacko on his videos say sometimes his nose falls off.
Have you seen my nose?
Swear to Koresh!
I was vainly seaching the newest Rolling Stone for a mention in vain,
when I saw this story on Page 20 that his nose fell off during a shoot.
More than once, although once is more than enough...
Said Tim Considine, video prosthetics expert, "With
the proper makeup, it's possible
to be wearing a prosthetic nose, and you wouldn't be able to tell. Nowadays, they make
realistic snap-on noses that are held on by magnets implanted in the nose."
However, famed Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Randall D. Haworth
told RS magazine,
"If anyone could afford a good prosthetic, it's Jackson. A good prosthetic looks
better than that. That's just a messed up nose."
When they write the Book of Weird, they'll have to give Mikey the cover.
"Bush advisers have long been worried that
a lagging economy could hamper
the president's re-election chances. They hope that the cabinet shake up will
provide a needed jolt. If that doesn't work, ...North Korea has to go."

I felt they had nowhere to go, ...so ...first thing, I poured a shot of the Wildflowers
Chinaco Anejo from last year in case negotiations dragged on and I got cottonmouth.
But bottom line, they made me VERY happy.
And I wish I could brag that my negotiating skills made it happen, but the truth is,
they made me a generous offer before I had a chance to fire any of my big guns.
Here's how she put it:
It was their job to be sure I understood exactly how I was being billed.
Since I did not understand how they were billing me, that means they didn't do their job properly.
They said it was very important that they kept our business, so they
offered a nice lil' package with a comp weekend thrown in to boot.
The Rio is a class act.
I'm reminded of that lady from Albany who wrote to say "Vegas

How about that?

Why can't we get any senators to condemn Lott's racism?

Christians, Shop Wal-Mart
as seen on The Daily Brew
At about the same time China gained admission to the WTO, Wal-Mart moved
its worldwide purchasing headquarters to China. Today, Wal-Mart is the largest
importer of Chinese-made products in the world, buying $10 billion worth of
merchandise from several thousand Chinese factories. There is no question that
if prices are lower at Wal-Mart, it is because of these factories.
So when you see Wal-Mart's smiling, whistling happy face lowering
prices every day,
remember those Chinese kids in sweatshops are bringing home 6 cents a day.
