"This is the kind of job when you come home
at the end of the day, you really like
to have someone to sound off to, and the plants just weren't doing it for me."
- Christie Whitman, on quitting as head of the EPA
Hey Christie, what about that black guy
you played with for a thrill as governor?
Maybe he's out now, and would like to hear your endless whining?
"I love the feel of a black man."
If you haven't seen this picture before, when she was governor
of Jersey, she was bored one night
so she drove around with some state troopers and the first chance they had, they threw this guy up
against the wall, and while the troopers held guns on this poor bastard off-camera, Christie had the
pleasure of "frisking him." Me? I'd rather be shot by the cops than have this political whore rub her
nasty-ass hands all over my body so she could use this photo in her "tough on crime" re-election ads.
Sen. Robert Byrd accused the Bush administration of using ``false premises'' to get Americans
to accept what he said was an illegal and unprovoked attack on Saddam government.
His remarks on the Senate floor Wednesday made for some of the toughest criticism of the Iraq war from Congress.
Referring to turmoil in postwar Iraq, Byrd,
D-W.Va., said: ``If the situation in Iraq is the result of liberation,
we may have set the cause of freedom back 200 years.''
The White House dismissed his comments.
``It was widely known before the conflict began
that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction,
as was determined by the United Nations,'' White House spokeswoman Claire Buchan said.
All the UN knew is what Powell lied about (and got caught) that's why the UN refused to sanction the hit.
"In fact, we have already found at least two
mobile labs'' suspected of being capable of
producing biological weapons, she said.
"Suspected" of "being capable of?"
That's why thousands of innocent Iraqi people died?
I suspect this illegal adminiostration is capable of doing any goddamn thing to steal some oil.
You said the threat was so imminent, that we couldn't wait
for the inspections to work, that Saddam was days
or maybe just hours away from unleasing his terrble, swift sword on the mighty United States, so we had to act!!
America - when will you wake up?
"Christine Whitman resigned yesterday as the
head of the EPA.
Bush was shocked – he didn’t know there was an EPA."
Democratics invoked memories of Watergate on Wednesday as they denounced the destruction of documents by
Texas police in a search last week for runaway Texas state legislators. "Not since Richard Nixon have we seen such
a dangerous abuse of federal resources for political purposes or such a dangerous cover-up," said Rep. Martin Frost,
dean of the Texas Democratic congressional delegation.
A U.S. Department of Homeland Security agency
said last week that Texas police had misled it in seeking help
to find a plane carrying some of the missing politicians. Democrats in the U.S. Congress demanded an investigation.
But don't worry, Tom Ridge has promised a "qucik and fair" investigation
The investigation is over? ...and all Republicans were cleared of all charges of wrongdoing?
I feel so much better.
This could be a gag, but maybe it's not
I was sent a GOP fundraising letter concerning how to answer liberal
charges that Smirk n Dick
knew about 9-11 and allowed it to happen to get Smirk's approval to 90 percent. The letter read:
"Even if Cheney allowed the 9-11
attacks, he did so for the good of the nation.
FDR allowed Pearl Harbor so the United States could join the war in 1941."
Because liberals love Franklin Roosevelt so much, this answer shuts them up quickly.
Yeah, confess that on live TV and see if our reaction is to shut up.
I'll change bartcop.com to themotherlessbastardsknew.com.
Only a true leader can make the toughest
decisions in order to lead his nation to its destined greatness.
Even if our President allowed the attacks of 9/11, this proves Bush is an even bigger hero for
allowing Cheney to make such a tough, necessary decision. We elect our leaders to lead, not flirt and
carry on with interns. It was Bush's amazing post-9/11 leadership that unleashed the American people
to free others around the world, including Afghanistan and Iraq.
I know that reads like a parody, but everything since impeachment
has been upside down.
The last few years, every newspaper reads like The Onion, talking about Bush's "fearless leadership,"
and why terror, war and recession are better than those phoney Clinton days.
Anyone else seen this fund raising letter?
I cannot disagree with you and your other
readers more than when you speak about how it is a
good thing that Annika is playing in the tournament. I would have no problem if their was no LPGA,
or men could play in the LPGA. But, women have their own tour. She should be playing there. Period.
People complain about how "if she can compete
with the men, it's only fair".
Well, let's reverse that.
If Michael Jordan or Shaq went to the WNBA, would THAT be fair?
No you say? Why not?
M, it's very simple.
The person with the disadvantage is a winner for stepping up.
(Think of a blind man climbing Mt Everest.)
But a sighted mountain climber trying to bully his way into the
Easter Egg Hunt
at the Immaculate Conception Home for the Blind would be a cheating loser.
Trust me - the only reason the men don't want her there is because
who lose to Anna will be taunted by the men who managed to beat her.
Boy, wouldn't it be something if Mr Perfect lost to a girl?

Hey, where'd you get that puppet?
Mr. Rove: Austin, Texas!
i am 26. i grew up during the prosperous
clinton years, and have only the vaguest recollections of
the last republican empire. i've tried to ask my working class parents if this is what the 80's were like,
with the liberty raping and blatant abuses of power and the "f-you, environment!" and whatnot.
i also asked them if the public, as a whole,
was this stupid (i.e--'i'm voting for the one that looks good
in a flight suit!' ) back then. they claim they don't remember. i think they don't want to. can you help me?
i'll have some hope for the future of this country if i can believe that it's been this bad before,
and we managed to get out of it.
JJ, it would take a smarter person than me to give you a good
answer, but I remember the 80's.
In the 70's we had runaway inflation, (they blame Carter, but it was a Nixon/Ford problem) but things
weren't that bad. Old people got plenty of money from their savings interest, and if you owned a home,
every time you made a $700 mortgage payment the value of your home increased $1200.
(I pity the fool who wants to argue with me on that since I was doing real estate loans at the time.)
When Reagan got in, he slayed the inflation beast with the biggest
recession since the 1930s.
Tens of millions pf people couldn't find jobs, but the people loved Reagan because he promised he'd
nuke Iran if they pulled any hostage crap on his watch. Nobody knew he'd made a secret, illegal deal
with the terrorists to hold those Americans an extra few months to make Carter look weak..
Just like today's market, once-profitable company's were gobbled
up for pennies on the dollar and
Reagan's rich friends made hundreds of millions by doing nothing - absolutely nothing. On top of that,
Reagan went on this wild spendind spree that put us trillions in debt. Bush wasn't much better.
The vulgar Pigboy likes to say "Reagan had the longest growth
period ever," which might be true
because he crashed the economy from 100 to 20, then for the next twelve years it clawed it's way back
That 20 to 100 stretch is what the GOP is so proud of. When Clinton got in, he took that 100 and
ran it to three hundred, and Bush has crashed it back to 100 again, so look for another looooong
period of growth, as American families try to get back to Clintonian levels.
That's the best I can do off the top of my head.
Subject: Re: Nigger, Faggot, etc..
Hey Bart, personally I LOVE it when you use derogatory racial and anti-gay slurs to make a point.
What you are doing is cutting through the
bullshit codes the RNC has been getting away with for too long.
I am gay and have no confusion in understanding that when the Repigs use phrases like 'family values'
they are actually saying "fuck those perverted faggots". There are tons of euphamisms they love to
use in public. Rush is a master at using these codes.
Keep it real, you are the BEST,
Subject:The "N-Word" Debate
A reader named "Pidru" wrote and said he
used to feel the same way you did about the "n" word
until he saw an episode of "Boston Public," which illustrated to him that all uses of the word are bad.
What made it acceptable for "Boston Public"
to use to word to illustrate it's point?
It's probably time to let this one rest.

"Let me defend Ari Fleischer. Critics
are going through the many factual misstatements that Ari made.
But we need to change not the monkey, but the organ grinder.
Somebody sent him out there to say these things that were false. For example, it was Bush and Cheney
who said Iraq has a nuclear weapons program. We now know that they do not. Why blaming Fleischer,
when it's the president and the vice president who misled us about a war?"
--Paul Begala, who has never admitted reading bartcop.com
Why has the Bush administration done so little to secure
Iraq's nuclear sites since the coalition's victory?
Today's warning of excited "chatter" among
the cadres of al-Qaida -- and the prospect of
renewed attacks in Saudi Arabia or the United States -- again highlight the Bush
administration's appalling failure to secure nuclear materials in Iraq.
For several weeks, Mohammed ElBaradei has
pleaded with U.S. officials to permit his experienced
IAEA inspection and security personnel to assist in that urgent task -- but his worries about missing
nuclear materials again raise the specter of a "dirty bomb" attack by terrorists.
Karl Rove knows if there's anothger massive attack, America will
rally around this incompetent
moron and raise his approval ratings another 30 points. We reward failures with extra praise.
If it doesn't move - hit refresh.

Questions and Answers about Foreign Policy
Q: Why did Iraq want all those weapons of mass destruction?
A: To use them in a war, silly.
Q: I'm confused. If they had all those weapons
that they planned to use in a war,
then why didn't they use any of those weapons when we went to war with them?
A: Well, obviously they didn't want anyone to
know they had those weapons,
so they chose to die by the thousands rather than defend themselves.
Subject: does Howard Dean know about Diebold...?
I saw part of a Howard Dean Q&A on CSPAN
a couple nights ago; one audience member raised the
'crooked elections'/no-paper-trail issue, and Dean said that he'd recently become aware of it as an issue
and he was looking into it pretty seriously. He sounded like he wasn't just blowing it off, either.
He sounded, in fact, like a guy who'd raise holy heck about it.
Question: is there a BartCop reader who knows how we could approach Dean with what we've gathered on the subject?
Most political campaigns are notoroiusly impossible to reach,
which is funny because they're trying so hard
to reach out to other people. If we can get to Dean, I suggest we have Faun Otter do the talking.
As far as I know, he broke the story that was published here, and then the Observer in the UK mentioned
that we were one of the only places talking about it. Maybe Dean doesn't wear pink tutus?

This is the fun position, but it has to be just the right person. We need a reader.
We need a person who loves to read new, hardback books, but it's more than that.
Here's how that might work: Right now, Sid Blumenthal has a new book out.
I'd send you the book, you'd read it in a few days, then write a book report for us to read.
Then you'd send us the Top Ten quotes, or most important facts
we must know from the book.
Then, in many cases, you'd interview the author. For this, you'd probably need a tape recorder,
but they're cheap and you'd need that for accuracy when filing your interview with bartcop.com
I haven't talked to Sid's people, but I'll bet they'd make him available. My good friend Joe Conason
also has a new book coming out, and I'll bet he'd talk to us to plug his book, "BIG LIES!"
I've had to pass up interviews with some big-time Democrats because I have no time to read the book
(except for Susan McDougal and much of Conason/Lyons "Hunting") and I'm not going to insult the author
by asking dumb questions like most reporters. In most cases, I imagine you could say, "Tell me about
your new book," and it'd be tough to shut them up :)
For this position, we really need someone with time on their
hands. No sense setting this up if you have
a houseful of needy kids, ongoing medical problems, a crazy, ax-weilding wife etc. We need the brainy type,
older, balding and with thick glasses (just kidding) but it could be a fun gig. Had we set this up a year ago,
you possibly could've interviewed Susan McDougal, Arianna Huffington, Greg Palast etc.

Fighting terrorism doesn't require that we go billions of dollars in debt. Mostly it requires a concentrated
intelligence effort and good relations with other democratic governments. At the same time, however
horrific terrorist attacks are, no one should be so foolish to believe that eliminating them would be the end
all of our problems. Sooner or later new problems will emerge. If the Bush administration is allowed to
bankrupt the country in the interim, we will be very vulnerable to those threats when they arise.
