“The fact that he tried to kill my father and
my wife shows the nature of the man...
He’s cold-blooded. He’s a dictator. He’s a tyrant. And the decision I’m making,
and have made, to disarm Saddam is based upon the security of the American people.”
-- Extra-stupid monkey in a man suit
Governor, if you wewre interested in anything but taking over
the whole world you'd
have enough respect for democracy to let the winner of the 2000 election take your
place and bring some peace and prosperity to this bankrupt, war-torn country.
THOMAS: Ari, since there is an atmosphere of the imminence of war in this White House,
and since we have no direct access to the President, will you state for the record, for the historical record,
why he wants to bomb Iraqi people?
FLEISCHER: Helen, I dispute the premise
of your question, first of all. There's regular -- there's
regular access to the President. The President is asked questions all the time. And when the President --
THOMAS: He hasn't had a press conference for months.
FLEISCHER: And when 14 of your colleagues
spend 36 minutes asking
scores of questions to the President just two days ago --
THOMAS: Well, that's not a news conference.
FLEISCHER: -- they asked the President a
similar question, although they phrased it a little differently
than you did. They asked the President why does he feel so strongly about the need to use force, if it comes
to that, to disarm Saddam Hussein. And the answer from the President was that, given the fact that the world
changed on September 11th, the threat to the American people was brought immediately to our home and to
our shores and to our families, the President thinks it is in the interest of peace to make certain that Saddam
does not have weapons of mass destruction which he can use against us, either by transferring them to
terrorists or using them himself.
THOMAS: There is no imminent threat.
FLEISCHER: This is where -- Helen, if you
were President you might view things differently.
But you have your judgment and the President has others.
THOMAS: Why doesn't he prove it? Why don't
you lay it out?
When have they threatened in the last 12 years?
FLEISCHER: They have attacked their neighbors. They have gassed their own people.
THOMAS: Twelve years ago.
FLEISCHER: They have launched attacks.
THOMAS: With our support.
FLEISCHER: And September 11th showed the
United States is vulnerable to those who would
attack us. And one of the best ways to protect the homeland is to go after the threats abroad.
THOMAS: You haven't linked terrorism to Saddam Hussein, in terms of 9/11.
FLEISCHER: It's not -- the threat is what
took place on 9/11. You don't have to make a direct linkage
between Saddam and 9/11 to know that others who are planning can try to do it again, Saddam included.

Trust me, I’ve used Macs since 1985, and

That's what everyone keeps telling me.
When that happened, I might've been more insane with rage than the lawyer
who got arrested for wearing the "Give peace a chance" t-shirt at the mall.
The worst part was all the time writing and re-writing and re-writing.
The news stuff I could just re-post, mostly, but the stuff I wrote only stays in
my head for so long, and when I'm double-insane with rage none of it comes back
It just seems like a crime to work that hard and lose everything.
It's like destroying a painting in a museum (if I had talent).
If Bill Gates had walked thru my door, and I killed him without
do you think I could get a jury to buy "depraved indifference?"
O'Reilly made a mistake
(a follow-up to Sometimes Talking Points talk back)
by James Higdon
I understand that the folks at FOX are all atwitter that you are the highest rated talking head on cable.
I've seen the ratings. A whopping 2.8. The fact is that the ratings for all talking head shows are a bust.
I remember, a short time ago, when anything less than a 10.0 would get a show pulled from the air before
its next scheduled broadcast. Perhaps these shows would do better if they provided a lot more useful
information, and a lot less attitude.
Bush faces "humiliating" defeat on UN resolution
So Bush and Ari say they don't care, Bush wants that oil, he'll attack anyway
Powell told Bush he has only four of the nine votes needed for approval of a second resolution.
As a result, some White House advisors are now urging Bush to back off his war hardon and
give UN weapons inspectors more time.
"We have no other choice," admits one Bush advisor.
"We don't have the votes. We don't have the support."
Thousands of California students protest war
"Many of us have family in the army. One of my cousins is a Marine and is being sent to Iraq.
My sister is in the army. Why should they get sent to fight for oil? Nobody likes Bush; he wasn’t
even supposed to be president. The Supreme Court picked him. He didn’t have to go into the
army because he was rich and was sent to the best colleges. There is a big divide between the
rich and the poor. They think that we are trash, but we are human too.”
"With many Americans unhappy at French resistance
to a war in Iraq
there has developed a backlash against the French, not stirred up
by anybody except by the people.”

so I guess I'm wrong.
Possibility of 'Dirty Bomb' in Nigerian Theft
Halliburton, Cheney's super-sized oil field services firm, said it has started a probe involving
U.S. and Nigerian government officials over theft of a radioactive device used at its Nigerian operations.
A report by the Whore Street Journal said
officials were concerned that the device's radioactive
material could be used to create a "dirty bomb," to scatter radioactivity in a densely populated area.
We're going to invade Nigeria, too? So we can "stop the terrorists?"
Why in the world are we going to...
...Oh, that's right.
Nigeria has oil.
No wonder they've found "terrorists" hiding there.
Funny, they find terrorists in Iraq, Iran, the Philippines, and Nigeria.
There you go again, Bart!
Dubya would never use his office to get rich.
He's a good man and he can count on me.
Bush Blackmails Russia
Showing its exasperation with Russia's growing defiance of U.S. war plans, Bush
resorted to economic blackmail and warned Russia that it risks jeopardizing its bid
to join the World Trade Organization if it vetoes a UN Security Council resolution.
Russia also risks having to endure the continued
humiliation of Soviet-era U.S. trade
restrictions and being locked out of a post-Saddam Hussein Iraq, said a senior U.S.
diplomat, who spoke on condition of anonymity in an interview Wednesday.
The lil' King always gets what he wants.
If he can't persuade you, he uses force, backed up by his daddy's power, and then,

Students make stand for peace
Defying warnings from school administrators and ignoring the threat of detentions and suspensions,
300 students from area high schools left their classrooms Wednesday to protest war against Iraq.
"Bush is not the one who's going to be fighting.
Kids are going to be fighting his war, and it's about
getting Iraq's oil, which belongs to them to begin with, said Ashville High freshman Lindsey Chamberlain.

Savage's long, strange trip
A Jewish kid from the Bronx now spews the ugliest bile on talk radio.
(When you consider the competition, that's really saying something.)
These days, Weiner's more interested in purging the body politic. Using the pseudonym Michael Savage,
he's launched a one-man mission to save America from its enemies at home and abroad, which on any
given day includes liberals, gays, academics, the homeless, the Clintons, immigrants, feminists, CNN,
the American Civil Liberties Union, Muslims and other minorities.
Savage, or Weiner, is one of those Fox-type whores who
manufactures their rage.
I don't see how they can do that.
Someday soon, I'll be explaining on BartCop Radio that I can't
I'm going to say what's on my mind, but I can't fake it like Savage and Rush.
I don't understand how they can be in a good mood at 11:58, and
then be pissed off
and ready to take the world on every day at 12:06. To me, it's just phoney crap.
Even for Limbaugh's $28M a year, I couldn't fake it.
I guess these guys should be given "credit" for being able to turn on the Clinton-hate
at a moment's notice, but we're not going to have any of that on BartCop Radio.
If I'm in a good mood, I'm in a good mood.
If I'm in a bad mood, like I was yesterday, I'm in a damn bad mood.
Fortunately, Smirk does something horribly outrageous most every
day, so I won't have to
fake anything, but Clinton's been gone for over two years and the ultra-right-wing Nazi's
run the whole show now, so what's Savage got to be pissed about?
Like Rush, he's become nothing more than an apologist for the always-right federal government.
The Noriega Gambit
Bush Sr. Said In 1996 That War With
'Would Turn Entire Arab World Against Us’
Dimmest Son can't learn, so this lesson is wasted
by Jason Leopold
Former President George Bush predicted in 1996 that if the United States
were to engage in another war with Iraq, one aimed at overthrowing Saddam,
the “entire Arab world would turn against us” and the U.S. would alienate
its allies in the international community.
wife (R-Shrew) actually a circus clown
...but the NY Post is owned by whore, so this story may not be true
Fed up with Wooden's sense of humor, the vice president told him, via a letter from his lawyer,
to delete photos showing his wife, Lynne, wearing a red nose and remove the "biography."
The piece describes Lynne Cheney, First
Lady Laura Bush and President Bush's mother,
Barbara, as "paragons of conjugal subservience."
Hey Unka Dick!
Have your lawyer send me a letter, too.
"The foreign ministers of France, Germany and
Russia today issued a joint declaration
that they will not allow a second American-backed resolution to pass the UN. Bush wants
the Security Council to explicitly authorize force against Iraq, and his press secretary today
remained optimistic that in the end, that's just what he'll get. President Bush is said to be
focusing on one fence-sitting Security Council member, the African nation of Guinea,
because he said -- quote -- "I used to have one of their pigs."

Mall now wants to drop peace t-shirt charges
Stormed by peace protestors, mall had no choice but to cave
Police said managers from Crossgates Mall called and asked that the complaint against
Stephen Downs be withdrawn. Police Chief James Murley said he would support the mall's decision.
Earlier Wednesday, about 100 anti-war demonstrators
marched through the mall to protest the arrest.
They told a mall manager they would stop only when charges against the shopper were dropped and
when the mall outlined its policy.
By the way, the phone number to Crossgates Mall is 518-869-9565

If you are not yet scared of our influence in the world now,

Then you will have to come to us for your oil.

Public prayer fanatics
"This is really an argument between two kinds of prayer--vertical and horizontal. I don't have the
slightest problem with vertical prayer. It is horizontal prayer that frightens me. Vertical prayer is
private, directed upward toward heaven. It need not be spoken aloud, because God is a spirit
and has no ears. Horizontal prayer must always be audible, because its purpose is not to be heard
by God, but to be heard by fellow men standing within earshot. To choose an example from football,
when my team needs a field goal to win and I think, ''Please, dear God, let them make it!''--that is
vertical prayer. When, before the game, a group of fans joins hands and ''voluntarily'' recites the
Lord's Prayer--that is horizontal prayer. It serves one of two purposes: to encourage me to join them,
or to make me feel excluded. "
This is true.
The religio-nuts want to be seen praying.
They can pray all they want, 24 hours a day, but that's not what they want.
They want to be seen praying to reassure themselves that their God is the real God.
It's pure insanity, and one of these nuts stole his way into the White House to rob us blind.
Subject: Mike Savage is scum
Try to think of MSNBC’s shift to the right
in Naderite terms. Although I fully support
the efforts of you and people like you who are trying to provide a liberal alternative to
Rush, Hannity and the rest, we need to face facts.
Older, white people watch news programs
right now. These people tilt right, in general.
If Michael Savage manages to take the most far right audience from Fox, that hurts Fox,
Hence, my reference to Ralph Nader. In the long run, we need liberal media to educate.
In the short run, a bunch of conservative choices hurts them all as they fight over a dwindling audience share.
"Well, those of you who still believe the myth
of the liberal media should consider this:
MSNBC, an obscure cable channel, has fired Donahue, the host of its highest-rated show.
A memo from inside NBC shows that NBC big wigs feared that the liberal Donahue represented
in the words of the NBC memo -- quote -- "a difficult public face for NBC at a time of war, while
our competitors are waving the flag at every opportunity because he seems to delight in guests
who are anti-war, anti-Bush and skeptical of the administration's motives." So there it is, according
to NBC. Phil Donahue was fired because he's a liberal. In fact, the only liberal with the solo cable
talk show. NBC, of course, is a division of the conglomerate GE, where they apparently only
bring right wing things to life."

Anti-war protesters pile dung outside Labour HQ
Anti-war protesters led by comedian Mark
Thomas have heaped fertiliser
on the steps of the Labour Party headquarters.
Bemused passers-by looked on as seven sacks
of dung were spread near the door
of the party offices in Old Queen Street, Westminster, in a protest against conflict in Iraq.
Mr Thomas told a camera crew at the scene:
"This is what the people of Britain think of
the second UN resolution, which despite the Government's claims, does not specifically call for war on Iraq."
The comedian, who has been involved in a
number of protests in the past, left shortly afterwards
with the rest of the group after police arrived at the scene.
On top of the heap of dung they left anti-war
white ribbons and signs on posts stuck into the pile
saying: "US/UK 2nd Resolution" and "Blair-Bush 2nd Resolution" over the picture of a cow.
A blue van carrying the dung and about five
protesters made it to the security sensitive
Westminster HQ without being challenged
I'm surprised Al Qaeda hasn't attacked London.
That would probably bring half of Britian into this war
that Osama and Bush want so badly.

Why Roy Jones Jr. vs Lennox Lewis won't happen
By Hunter S. Thompson
Roy Jones Jr. is the real thing, and I take my hat off to him. He is a first-class fighter and a proud champion….
The bad news is that Jones is so good that nobody within 40 pounds of his fighting weight even deserves to be
in a boxing ring with him. He is quite literally in a class by himself.
The only fighter alive today who might have
a chance to beat Jones Jr. is Lennox Lewis. But let's face
we will not be tuning into a Jones-Lewis heavyweight fight anytime soon, maybe never. That is not the way
boxing works -- not as long as Don King is around. No sir. That would be too obvious, too logical. It would
short-circuit the revenue stream, bypass too many other big paydays and too many "sure thing" preview
matchups on the road to the big kahuna.
