 Quotes that prove Russert is a pit bull with Republicans.

 Russert: If your analysis is not correct, and we’re not treated as liberators,
  but as conquerors, and the Iraqis begin to resist, particularly in Baghdad, do you think
  the American people are prepared for a long, costly, and bloody battle with significant
  American casualties?

 Cheney: Well, I don’t think it’s likely to unfold that way, Tim.

 Russert: That's good enough for me - no need for a follow up, there.

 U.S. Advises Inspectors to Leave Baghdad
  The Bush boy is finally getting the war he craves so much

  Click  Here

 The United States advised the UN to withdraw its inspectors from Baghdad,
 Germany closed its embassy and some foreign journalists left the country
 Monday as the threat of war inched closer.

  I love war!


"They never saw what napalm does do a little girl's skin. They never saw a
  19-year-old from Iowa screaming and writhing on the ground because a mine blew
  his legs off. They never saw a man take a bullet through the brain, then watch his
  body flop around on the ground for a minute or so because it doesn't realize he's dead.
  They haven't seen the shit I've seen, and they want to do it all over again."
    - anonymous man at the Vietnam Memorial, quoted by AA Hambidge, Point of no return

 What does he mean?

 Stations Boycott Dixie Chicks
 Country stabs one of its biggest groups

  Click  Here

 In Kansas City, WDAF-AM set trash cans outside its offices for listeners
 to toss their Dixie Chicks CDs. Its Web site displayed more than 800 listener
 e-mails, (meaning Freepers) most of them in support of the station's boycott.

 After more than 250 listeners called Friday to complain about Maines'
 comments, WTDR-FM in Talladega, Ala., dropped the Dixie Chicks.

 The poor Dixie Chicks - they're not only "Hollywood," but they have vaginas, too.
 That means they have no right to any opinions. What the hell were they thinking?

 This is just the start, too. As of the last count, America was 57 for the war, and 43 against.
 So we're going to go thru our own civil war, tearing at each other, so the unelected Boy King
 can have his toys, and his oil, and his higher approval numbers during this bloody war of his.


 Can you tell me why the religious nut who kidnapped Elizabeth Smart
 to be his wife is more dangerous than the religious nuts in the White House
 who have kidnapped the world to make Saddam their bitch?


 Mike, no, I can't

 Look - it's trying to think!

  Quotes that prove Russert is a pit bull with Republicans.

  Russert: Brent Scowcroft, a man you know well, national security adviser to Bush 41,
  when you were secretary of defense, talked to the National Journal and said this,
  "...arrogance, black eye. Eighty-five percent of Spain, 86 percent of Germans,
  91 percent of Russians, all against this war. What happened? How did we lose a
  PR battle against Saddam Hussein in the world, and why would Brent Scowcroft
  say those kinds of things?

 Cheney: I have great affection for Brent. We’ve been friends for a long time.
 He is occasionally wrong, and this is one of those occasions.

 Russert: That's good enough for me - no need for a follow up, there.

 Subject: Message from Greg Palast


 I was fortunate enough to be able to go and hear Greg Palast in the Chicago area last night. His inspiring presentation
 touched on many of  the topics in his newly revised book. They included the Dumbya air  national guard "service" and
 the rewards of those who cooperated or covered up, Jeb, Harris and the 2000 stolen election, Poppy and Barrick gold,
 the 9-11 Bin Laden family connection, Saudi support of Iraq's nuclear program and eventual transfer to Pakistan,
 the Cynthia McKinney trashing, Venezuela, the evils of touch-screen voting and more.
 In one segment on "Who is winning the war on terrorism?" some of the big winners mentioned included The Carlyle Group
 (450 million to "wind down" the Crusader program, for example,) Lockheed (the Virginia class submarine that Bush has
 ordered 36 of them at 1.5 billion a piece,)  Choice Point (remember Katherine Harris' database of removed voters,)
 and Syntec Corp. who along with Choice Point is doing John Poindexter's data mining of over 20 billion records they
 have been gathering on US citizens. Did I mention John Poindexter founded Syntech?

 A lot of what he talked about is in the new version of his book "The Best Democracy Money Can Buy". I know you
 don't have a lot of time to read books these days but I went ahead and got one for you. When I told Greg the book was
 for Bartcop he really lit up and got excited. He signed your book, told me to send his thanks and greetings and to tell you
 he would be sending you some more books and stuff. He then took the time to take the attached shot with me (Dick.)
 The book will be on its way to you today.

 All the best,


"Dick," that was way cool - Greg Palast is the man.
 I wonder why the B.F.E.E. hasn't murdered him?

"I bought gas this morning at the local Shell Station.
  Regular $2.42, Super $2.52, Premium $2.62. But the good
  news is that no one is getting blowjobs in the White House."

 Subject: Rush


 Rush is advocating a boycott of the Dixie Chicks now.  I consider that a recommendation to do the opposite.
 Guess he's pissed because of his lost sponsors.  What they said, and what he says all the time are very different.
 He is a pathetic, lying, malicious...you understand.  They were making an observation while they were away
 from this "media" based on learning the truth from a real media.  If the media were reporting the truth here,
 Bush would be impeached and in exile now.

 I'm confused about why poppy Bush seems to be turning on junior now.  Perhaps he took it in the direction
 poppy wanted to go, but too fast and now that the world is against him, poppy's starting to think to himself
 "that stupid imbecile of a son is gonna start WWIII, then we'll never sell any  of that stolen oil".

 Just a guess.


"I hear Saddam compared to Hitler, but Hitler was taking over a lot
  of countries in the '30s. Saddam doesn't even have all of his country.
  He doesn't have the North, he doesn't have the South.
  He's basically the mayor of Baghdad is what this guy is."
     --Bill Maher, Wolf the Whore, cnn.com

 Quotes that prove Russert is a pit bull with Republicans.

 Russert: There is a perception, if you read papers around the world, the president is a cowboy,
 he wants to go it alone, that he and you are perceived as ...stumbling, that if you mention the
 president’s name, “It’s like a blast furnace. He just wants to lead the world into war.’
 How did we get to this point? And is the competence of the foreign policy of the Bush
 administration being seriously questioned?

 Cheney: ...the notion that the president is a cowboy—I don’t know, is a Westerner, I think
 that’s not necessarily a bad idea. I think the fact of the matter is he cuts to the chase. He is
 very direct and I find that very refreshing.

 Russert: That's good enough for me - no need for a follow up, there.

 I'm smart, like Unka Dick says.
 I'm gonna get me some oil
 and be rich like my Daddy!

 It's St Patrick's Day!

 Last night at the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame

 The Righteous Brothers were inducted, played.
 Elvis Costello & his band were inducted, played.
 AC/DC were inducted, played.
 The Police were inducted, played.
 The Clash were inducted.
 Damn, that felt good and hurt at the same time.

 I'd like to think the reason they didn't play is the same reason Wings
 wouldn't play if McCartney had died just prior to the ceremony.

 I always get choked up at the Rock Hall of Fame party.
 Half of it is horseshit, but the other half isn't.
 The half that isn't rules.

 The Righteous Brothers opened the show with Lost that Loving Feeling,
 which is OK, just like Unchained Melody, but Soul and Inspiration was the real thing.
 Phil Spector had his best day ever with Soul and Inspiration.

 Elvis Costello never did much for me, I thought the best thing he ever did
 was London Calling two weeks ago with the Boss, Silvio and Dave the Foo-Man.

 AC/DC  has had their share of bad news, but damn - they rock the house.
 Steve Tyler mention that they owned the patent on the power chord.

 The Police closed the show, but it was anti-climactic.
 I guess with The Clash not playing, they felt obligated to close with the oldest band.
 I loved The Police but Sting was always the wimp in the band.
 The drummer, Stewart Copeland, was a monster.

 More on this at the end of this issue.


"Lincoln acted upon principle against great odds and against great opposition, and, likewise,
  President Bush's stance on Iraq is similar because he's acting out of principle while other world
  leaders are putting their fingers up in the air and figuring out which way the wind is blowing,"
   --Michigan AG Mike Cox, Bush's war stand Lincolnesque,

"President Bush said the USA and France continue to have common values and an important
 strategic relationship, but there were obvious strains. All you have to do is watch your TV
 and see the natural reaction of the American people. They are reacting."
   -- Ari the forked tongue

 I don't know about you Bart, but I was watching TV back around the middle of February
 and I saw the American people reacting pretty negatively to a war with Iraq.
 Or were we supposed to ignore that?

 Apology from Natalie Maines & Dixie Chicks
 Something I found on the Specious Report

  Click  Here

 I'm just a young girl who grew up in Texas. As far back as I can remember, I heard people say
 they were ashamed of President Clinton. I saw bumper stickers calling him everything from a pothead
 to a murderer. I heard people on the radio and tv like Rush Limbaugh, Pat Robertson, Newt Gingrich
 and Trent Lott bad mouthing the President and ridiculing his wife and daughter at every opportunity.

 I heard LOTS of people disrespecting the President. So I guess I just assumed it was acceptable behavior.

 We have a new mail box


 This is for radio bits, sound bites, parody songs -etc.
 I had to lose that Yahoo box (bartcopradio@yahoo.com) because
 they have a 10 meg limit and sound files eat space like Limba in his prime.

 We need pretty much everything - if it's short and funny - send it.
 We need bumper music, sound effects, animal noises - anything that can be
 used to ridicule the savage pigs who have illegally taken over our country.
 MP3s are better than wav files because they take 10 percent of the space.

 Quotes that prove Russert is a pit bull with Republicans.

 Russert: Do you prefer french fries or freedom fries?

 Cheney: I don’t eat them whatever they’re called. I used to love them, but, no,
 I stay away from french fries. They’re not on my diet.

 BartCop: Ease up, Tim. Stop badgering the man with tough questions

 War is Treason

 Bush is turning me - and every other American into international criminals. If Bush starts
 an illegal war - it will be the American people who will pay the price. Bush seems to have
 the illusion that the United Nations voted to approve war with Iraq while at the same time
 avoiding a vote on war because he knows he would lose it. The very act of avoiding a vote
 or war is an admission that he knows he doesn't have UN approval to start a war.

 Bush is a criminal and to start an unprovoked war it treason. When the president commits
 treason it is the duty of the people to immediately remove him from office. In the name of
 the People of the United States I demand Bush step down and I call on the People of
 America to force him out of office if he does not immediately step down.

"President Bush is meeting with the prime ministers of Spain and Great Britain. Pretty much the
 only world leaders who don't hate his guts. Tony Blair of Great Britain in particular is paying an
 enormous price for aligning himself with President Bush. Polls show Tony Blair with just a 31 percent
 approval rating. Some observers fear that a war without U.N. backing could cost Mr. Blair his job.
 Well, Mr. Bush promised regime change, I just didn't think he meant in England."

 Letter from War veterans to Illegal Moron

 Our concerns about the potential human and material costs of a military conflict in Iraq are well substantiated.
 The scale of the crisis would be so large that the international community would be unable to prevent widespread suffering.
 For these reasons and more, it remains in our nation’s best interest to avoid another war.

 Who cares what you think?
 This war's on, so let's roll!


“We're trying to 'connect the dots,' and the same Doubting Thomases who would have
  prevented us from doing so before 9/11 are standing in the way of it happening now.”
    --Rush Limbaugh

 But Rush, since nobody stopped Bush from connecting the dots prior to 9-11,
 what's your excuse for Bush making the most costly bungle in modern history?

 Oh, that's right - you blame Clinton for Bush's month-long vacations...

 Subject: Fake Iraq documents 'embarrassing' for U.S.

 Intelligence documents that U.S. and British governments said were strong evidence that Iraq
 was developing nuclear weapons have been dismissed as forgeries by U.N. weapons inspectors.

 The documents, given to International Atomic Energy Agency Director Mo ElBaradei, indicated
 that Iraq might  have tried to buy 500 tons of uranium from Niger, but the agency said they were "obvious" fakes.

 Colin Powell referred to the documents directly in his presentation to the U.N. Security Council
 outlining the Bush administration's case against Iraq.   When our Administration has to resort to
 using fake documents to justify going to war, then it is an unjust war.

"How did Saddam get the precursor for anthrax?  We know for historical fact
  that Reagan, tilting our policy towards Iraq and against Iran, authorized anthrax
  and bubonic plague to be sold to Saddam. Wasn't it appeasement in 1983 when
  Saddam was using chemical weapons against the Iranians and Rumsfeld went to
  suck up to him on behalf to on Ronald Reagan? Was that appeasement?"
         --Paul Begala, Crossfire

  Unka Dick - is that true?
  Why did you and Daddy give Saddam anthrax?

 “I've changed my mind on this boycott stuff. To hell with
   the Dixie Chicks and all these people. Just boycott them.”
    --Rush, explaining free speech to his ditto-zombies

 On last night's broadcast of the Rock k Roll Hall of Fame ceremonies,
 Tom Morolla of Audioslave had the honor of inducting The Clash.
 He said watching The Clash live changed his life.
 Here is some more of what he said:

"When Joe Strummer played, he played as though the world could be changed
  by a three minute song, ...and you know, ...he was right.  When The Clash played,
  they played like the soul of every single person  in that room depended on it.
 (That's a fact, I saw them in Dallas - they were fan-fucking-tastic.)
  But The Clash isn't really gone.  Whenever a band cares more about it's fans
  than its bank account, the spirit of The Clash is there. When a stadium band or
  a garage band has the  guts  to put their beliefs on the line to make a difference,
  the spirit of The Clash is there.   ...and when people take to the streets to
  protest an immoral war, the spirit of The Clash is there."

 I can't speak for Joe Strummer, but knowing his politics and his courage, if he had been there
 to accept his Hall of Fame honor, he might've gone up to that microphone and said,
"Fuck this immoral war and the goofy monkey in the stolen White House."

 Joe didn't give a fuck what anybody thought about his politics.
 If he had been at the Grammy;s he would've told CBS to take a fucking hike
 and said whatever he wanted to say about Bush's stupid oil war.

 Until 2004, we won't have a chance to vote against the Commander in Thief, so vote with your wallet:
