"By blocking a vote on Miguel Estrada, some Democrats are flaunting the intention
  of the Constitution and the tradition of the Senate, itself. Alexander Hamilton wrote
  that the purpose of the Senate confirmation was to prevent the appointment of unfit
  characters. No one can possibly call Miguel Estrada unfit. "
    --Dubya, Washington, D.C., Feb. 26, 2003   (dubyaspeak.com)

 But Governor, his refusal to answer simple questions proves he's hiding something.
 Why do you guys have to hide if you're not breaking any laws?

 CBS, White House Clash Over Saddam Interview
  Monkey can't rebut Saddam unless a grown-up writes his answers

  Click  Here

 Ari Fleischer (R-Fork Tongue) said CBS replied it was interested only if President Bush
 made the response himself -- which he said the White House rejected on the grounds that
 it could imply a "moral equivalence" between the two leaders.

"This seems odd they wouldn't let the White House have a voice," Fleischer lied.

 Ari, you're lying again.
 CBS is offering your boy a chance to rebut - the problem is he can't because has no brain.
 Remember during the 2000 campaign I said Gore should insist the debate be held like two men,
 instead of that candy-ass, "debating" format that allowed Weak & Stupid to hide and evade answers?

 Now he's on the world stage and he has to hide again.

 This would've shown the country that Bush was mentally defective, that he couldn't hold his own in a
 debate because he's an empty shell of a man and has no brain functions beyond Play Station 2.

 Now, Bush and America will be seen as weak by all the world because his pea-brain doesn't work.
 How did we get stuck with a president without a brain?

 Virtual March Ties Up Senate Phones

  Click  Here

 Hundreds of thousands of opponents of war against Iraq called and faxed U.S. leaders
 on Wednesday in a "virtual march on Washington," jamming the White House switchboard
 and many congressional telephone lines for several hours.

 Coordinated by the Win Without War Coalition, an umbrella protest group, the action aimed
 to direct at least one telephone call and fax to every U.S. senator every minute throughout the day.
 Organizers said they were far exceeding that goal.

 The White House was flooded and most callers heard a message that "all circuits are busy."

 ha ha

 Stop having opinions!
 I need this war to get my
 approval ratings back up
 and make some millions!

 Hey Smirk, you're kinda arrogant ...considering you lost the election...


"The bidding for Turkey is still at $26B to let us deploy our troops there.
  Now, Joe Lieberman came out today, and he said, not to criticize the president,
  but that's what happens when you let the gentiles do the haggling."

 More snow due today.

 Would someone please bring me a groundhog?
 I think some stew would be nice.

 Mr. Rogers died.

 It is not a very beautiful day in the neighborhood.

 Someone please, the groundhog.

 Cara, if it's any consolation, at least Mr Rogers died from natural causes
 instead of being murdered by the B.F.E.E..

 From Detriot's MetroTimes.com

 Powerful words

 Thank you, Jack Lessenberry, for that very nice tribute to Sen. Robert Byrd
(“What kind of country?,” Metro Times, Feb. 19-25). His speech of Feb. 12,
 2003 was indeed one of the most powerful orations I have ever heard by any senator.

 In a time when we are constantly saturated by the nonsensical ramblings of
 a man who did not truly earn the title of president of the United States, it is
 refreshing to hear a true master of oratory at work.

 The mainstream media will not truly cover anything — such as Sen. Byrd’s speech against
 rushing to war — that might anger Karl Rove, Bush’s “minister of information.” Because of that,
 I look to you and others in the alternative media that can give me a weekly glimpse at the real truth.
   —Mark Barringer, Farmington Hills, bartcop.com contributor  and  chat regular


"Helen Thomas is a legend. She's known and covered every president since JFK.
  In a candid moment, Ms. Thomas spoke a powerful truth. "George W. Bush is the
  worst president in all of American history." Given how Mr. Bush has squandered
  the surplus, trashed the economy and is now hurdling toward a war that is unpopular,
  unjust, unwise and unwarranted, I think I see Helen's point. Now, the GOP has moved
  into smear mode. The RNC is urging it's faithful to, "call her out," which apparently
  means harassing Helen by e-mail, and phone, and fax. I guess nothing makes a
  Republican feel better than beating up on an 82-year-old woman."

 The bad news?
 Bush has convinced himself *he* owns Iraq's resources.

 Crossfire Moments

 James Carville: "What about people in South Carolina? There's a BMW plant in South Carolina.
 There's a Mercedes plant in Alabama. Look, should these people go to work or should they strike?
 I mean what are you saying? You don't want me to buy a German watch? Are these bad Americans
 that are working these plants and feeding their familes?"

 David Bossie: "What we're saying is that this coalition of the willing, people who are interested in
 making the Germans and the French understand what we're saying, which is enough is enough.
 You're standing in the way of the Iraqi people being liberated."

 James Carville: "So these auto workers in South Carolina and Alabama are bad Americans?"

 David Bossie: "You know what, James? The guys who are the hard workers in Alabama and
 Georgia and South Carolina, what they are...You know what? Because these guys who are in
 the National Guard and in the Reserves, they're all overseas."

 James Carville: "I don't need a speech. I've been in the Marine Corps. Answer the question.
 Mr. Bossie has attacked autoworkers in South Carolina and Alabama...I want to give you a chance.
 Dave, we'll give you a chance to apologize to hardworking people in Alabama."

 David Bossie: "I thought we were going to have a serious conversation, a serious debate.
 You just want to yell and scream at me and that's fine."

 James Carville: "I'll scream at you any time I want to, boy."

 Subject: bill maher show

 Bart,  I finally managed to get thru the show.
 I was tempted several times to turn it off.
 I was real depressed watching that bitch coulter.
 She claimed that bush's SAT scores were huge - 'twice as good as Bill Bradley's'
 -  Maher looked at her and said 'You just make shit up!'

 That was great!

 I agree.
 I plan to watch it each Friday, then as soon as it's over,
 I'll switch to Dave and see who's 'on cape.'

 ...and if Bush's scores were really higher than Bill Bradley's
 that's proof somebody took the test for the brainless Bush boy.

 Subject: Mrs. Bartcop Radio?

 Saw your section about not letting Mrs. Bartcop do anything when you start doing your show.

 No War
  by Jackson Thoreau

  Click  Here

 Such an invasion makes no sense. It's immoral - more than a million Iraqi kids have died due
 to sanctions and other measures since the Persian Gulf war and many more will die faster
 with such an invasion. This war goes against Christ's call to love our enemies and does not
 meet the criteria of a just war, as the Pope and others have said.

 Subject: Grammy censors

 Did they trample on the artists' rights? It looks like it. But they'll get away with it
 until someone has the courage to go ahead and do it and force them to cut off the mikes.

 If that happens, though, it might start to wake up the ditto monkeys as to what's happening.
 As long as they keep everything behind the scenes, and bully Hollywood and recording artists,
 they'll continue to get away with this shit.

 I believe Sheryl, but I'm also a little disappointed that they were able to run over her.
 Sorry about the unemployment "thing", but I'm hoping to hear Bartcop Radio soon. Good luck!


 Glenda, thanks for that.

 You know what would've been cool?
 If artist after artist went into an anti-war rant and got their mic turned off.
 CBS pays millions for a show and then turns the mic off for the performers?

 ha ha

 That would be great TV!

 Out of the wreckage
 By tearing up the global rulebook,
 the US is undermining its own imperial rule

  Click  Here

 The men who run the world are democrats at home and dictators abroad.
 They came to power by means of national elections which possess, at least,
 the potential to represent the will of their people. Their citizens can dismiss
 them without bloodshed, and challenge their policies in the expectation that,
 if enough people join in, they will be obliged to listen.

 Note: Bush has made it very clear. He sees the millions protesting in the streets,
           but nothing will deter a madman who's obsessed with a bad and bloody idea.

 Internationally, they rule by brute force. They and the global institutions they
 run exercise greater economic and political control over the people of the poor
 world than its own governments do. But those people can no sooner challenge or
 replace them than the citizens of the Soviet Union could vote Stalin out of office.
 Their global governance is, by all the classic political definitions, tyrannical.

 Ari gets laughed out of the WH press room

 Ari just drew himself up with imperious indignation and said something like
 "you're implying that the President is buying the votes of other nations
   and that's just not a consideration" or words to that effect.

 And guess what happened? The whole press corps, normally sheep, broke out
 in laughter... sweet, derisive laughter. They kept on laughing as Ari turned on
 his heels and strode out. Sheesh.

 Go down to White House Press Briefing (02/25/2003) and click on the video.
 After it buffers, play from about 28 minutes forward for context, 30 minutes
 forward to watch Press laugh at Ari's BIG FAT GOP LIE.

 The biggest shock is, in this tiny clip, we actually see the press doing
 something besides kissing Ari's ass and praising the Evil Usurper.

 Have you noticed a difference in the salute given by our military as President Bush walks by?
 Most folks would not notice anything, but those of us who have served in the military see it right away.
 Next time, Watch: When President Bush leaves Air Force One, the honor guards salute and face him
 as he disembarks, then turn their faces towards him as he passes by. They continue to salute his back
 as he walks away. This kind of salute has not been seen in the previous eight years, though it is customary
 courtesy to the Commander-in-Chief. They are not required to salute his back. They are only required to salute.
 They can remain face-forward the entire time. And that is what they did during the previous administration..
 Our soldiers were forced to obey his orders, but they were not forced to respect him

 Respect the numb-nutted moron?

     Do you think he can even spell "salute?"

 The armed forces respects the pampered moron who went AWOL during wartime.

 Strange but true.

 Then there was the creepy way Dean kept referring to the president. He called the showdown
"Bush's undeclared war" and "Bush's bombing campaign." He described it as something
"the president has put us into" and warned his audience, "We should think very, very seriously
 whether we are going to take ownership of the bombing - as though the president weren't the
 nation's commander in chief. He urged Congress to de-fund the war and "pull out the forces
 we now have in the region."

"When the news media turn into a propaganda arm of the administration--as Fox News has
 shamelessly become--it makes it hard for democracy to work. By echoing rather than
 challenging the administration's distortions, by failing to report what is going on in the region,
 by failing to let Americans understand why much of the world opposes the war on Iraq,
 the media are compounding the president's error. It is allowing him to get away without
 sharing why he's made the choices he has made."

 It could be that giant clicking sound MSNBC heard was disgusted liberals tuning out
 each time Phil effused praise for the unelected fraud - which was nearly every show.
 Could viewer feedback to the network and word of mouth have kept Donahue on the air longer?
 Possibly.  But no doubt many activists considered promoting the success of an unabashed
 Naderite too high a risk for later betrayal, and a waste of time.

 Word to future librul talk show hosts and spineless Democrats: Had Al Gore served in the office
 to which he was elected, flagship Faux blowhard Bill O'Reilly, host of the highest-rated screamfest on TV,
 would never refer him as "My President" in the way Donahue bizarrely referred to the unelected fraud
 on a daily basis.  Further, promoting third party, no-chance candidates is no way to endear yourselves to
 the vast majority of those who worked/voted to defeat Bush regime in '00 and hope to defeat it again in '04.

 I plan to take the advice of MWO.
 When we take to the webwaves on April 15th,
 we will not be heaping praise on the unelected fraud.
 Oh, and another thing:
 We're going to be around a damn lot longer than six months.

"Listening to Limbaugh, Hannity, O'Reilly and Ann Coulter, among many other

  a democracy -- which it is surely not, now that the Busheviks have taken over."

"Saddam is Bush’s Butcher of Baghdad. The most important phrase from Condi Rice
  was when she said it’s immoral to leave Saddam in power for 12 years. Of course, it’s

  against the Unicycle of Evil, Iran. Saddam is a killer, a murderer and a berzerker.
  A Frankenstein created by Bush. He hired him, so I guess he has the right to fire him."
