Wishing the 'President' didn't have the blood of children on his hands

"I know there's a lot of revisionist history
But Saddam is no longer a threat to the free world,"
-- Bloody Bush, at a community college in a Washington suburb
Hey George, that little Baghdad kid with his arms blown off?
He's no longer a threat to us either.
I wish this country understood that we have a monster in the White
It's not a blow job monster, either.
It's a "They're all dead, ...now watch this drive!" monster.
Howard Dean on Tuesday called for an independent investigation of Bush and his
justification for the war against Iraq, arguing that the commander in chief misled the country.
"I think the president owes this country an explanation
because what the president said was
not entirely truthful, and he needs to explain why that was," Dean said in an interview with AP.
"It appears to me that what the president did
was make a decision to go into Iraq sometime
in early 2002, or maybe even late 2001, and then try to get the justification afterward."
"Kill that Al Qaeda and bring his head to me at the Oval Office."
"I guess if Ari had to rebel, being a Republican
is better than being on drugs, but not by much."

Here's what happened: a single media giant, up to now allowed to own television stations reaching
slightly more than a third of the nation's viewers, will soon — thanks to Floodgate — be able to
reach nearly half, a giant's giant step toward 100 percent "penetration." And as for "cross-ownership"
— the ability for newspapers to buy TV and radio stations in the same city and vice versa — the F.C.C.
as much as said "c'mon in, local domination by a media powerhouse is fine."
Now it's up to Congress to overturn the
ruling by the roundheeled F.C.C. On Thursday, Senate
Commerce will mark up a bill put forward by Ted Stevens, Republican of Alaska, to roll back the
penetration to 35 percent. It will be amended by Byron Dorgan, Democrat of North Dakota, to
roll back the cross-ownership.
Subject: Clinton's corrupt presidency
After three years of research, I've discovered that one thing the wing nuts is saying is true
-- Clinton's presidency was the most corrupt until Bush.
Why do I say this? After sufficient
research I discovered that the Office of Independent Counsel
falls under the jurisdiction of the Executive Branch. That's right -- Ken Starr officially worked for Clinton,
and his office was indeed more corrupt than Nixon, Reagan and Bush I together.
So when someone tells me about Clinton's
presidency being the most corrupt in history,
I can let them know that they're right! Clinton's OIC set vast new records for corruption.
"There's about as much ideological diversity
on talk radio today in the US
as there was in Stalin's Soviet Union in 1934. I mean, it's not just right wing,
it's very far to the right."
Of Mass Stupidity
Fox News hits a new lowest common denominator
Fox News is an oxymoron and Cheech and Chong would have made a more credible team of war
correspondents than Geraldo Rivera and Ollie North. Neither Saturday Night Live nor the 1973
film Network, Paddy Chayefsky's corrosive satire of TV news, could even approach the comic
impact of Geraldo embedded, or of Fox's pariah parade, its mothball fleet of experts who always
turn out to be disgraced or indicted Republican refugees. If Ed Meese, Newt Gingrich and Elliott
Abrams couldn't fill your sails with mirth, you could count on the recently deposed Viceroy of
Virtue and High Regent of Rectitude, my old schoolmate Blackjack Bill Bennett.
"...this president -- unlike Ronald Reagan
and the elder George Bush -- can operate
with confidence that Republican control of Washington will provide him eight years to pursue
his economic agenda. This is because the 2002 redistricting gave Republicans a lock on the
House until 2012 and the Founding Fathers gerrymandered the Senate for GOP control.
In the 50-50 election that was 2000, Bush carried 30 states and Al Gore 20. Over time, a
reasonably competent Republican Party will tend to [elect] 60 Republicans in the Senate.
This guarantee of united Republican government has allowed the Bush administration to
work and think long-term."
--Grover G. Norquist
No, the Democrat's refusal to fight back
is what's giving Bush a free ride.
These cowards are stealing money. They cash their paychecks but
they refuse to represent their.constituencies back home.
Subject: You put the wrong Democrat in a tutu
I typically find your webpage very funny,
but I take serious issue with you lumping Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI)
with the tutu-wearing Democrats. Feingold is the finest Senator we've got -- he is the only one to vote against
(lists many of Fiengold's good qualities.)
My two cents,
RG, sounds like we're on the same team.
My point is - where is Russ Fiengold right now, this very minute?
Why isn't he calling a press conference to demand that Bush be held accountable for something?
They crucified Clinton for a blow job.
Bush and his fake war got many Americans killed, and nobody cares?
That's not worth Feingold raising his voice? Where is the Feingold warrior?
Bush is borrowing money to give to the super-rich.
Where is Feingold? What is he waiting for?
Last I heard, we were $7 trillion in debt, isn't that right?
Maybe the Democrats are waiting for Bush to steal another three trillion
before they stand up and say, "This is crazy and it stops today?"

"Why mince words? These are the facts: 1) Bush
is a liar, 2) Powell is a liar, 3) Rumsfeld is a liar,
4) Condoleezza Rice is a liar. To the above facts we might add these: There are no WMD in Iraq,
none were there when our war against Iraq began, and none will be found unless we plant them there.
These are the conclusions one could reasonably reach after reading Rep. Henry Waxman's web site,
the section about forged documents used as a justification for war. One might also conclude that
Waxman has found the smoking gun that could -- and should -- bring down Bush. Even if you assume
all that is good, should we tolerate being lied to on such major issues? Waxman is on to something.
He's caught the Bushies in baldfaced lies. But even though he's a powerful congressman, he's just
one man, and he can be shunted aside. What we need, I believe, is a hue and cry in this country to
match the hue and cry that went up when Bill Clinton lied about sex. We shouldn't leave Waxman
dangling out there all by himself. He needs our support. For the sake of our country's future, we
should expose the White House liars for what they are."
--Harley Sorensen, The War Built On A Lie
"I want all liberal reporters killed - That's an order."
But alas, Frank’s fortunes seem to have fallen. After calling teachers slugs and saying
the best method of dealing with teachers was homicide Frank has, to put it not too succinctly,
pissed off the pope. But, that’s ok he once described the Pope as a nice old man who misread
the Catechism when he opposed the death penalty. As with his fellow Republican Governors,
George Pataki and George W. Bush, Frank got a real buzz out of killing people. Nothing like
hauling a unarmed man out of a cell, strapping him to a table and then hiring someone to kill
him for you. Those rites of passage just aren’t what they used to be.

Ancestry.com says the Never-Elected Usurper is related to Colin Powell.
So why didn’t The Times ever report Schaffer’s 1987 effort to persuade federal
regulators to close Madison’s doors? Because, Lelyveld writes, she’d taken no
action until after the Feds kicked McDougal out on July 11, 1986: “From 1984
to 1986 Ms. Schaffer had the power to suspend McDougal herself and didn’t
use it while Madison Guaranty flirted with insolvency.”
This is doubly false. Schaffer took office
in 1985, months after federal and state
regulators settled a disputed 1984 audit with Madison. After the next audit in 1986,
her office helped give McDougal the heave-ho. “At the [July 11, 1986] meeting,”
she wrote Gerth, “we jointly confronted the Board with the findings of self-dealing
and insider abuse….It was a long and confrontational meeting. The Madison
Guaranty Board members appeared stunned.”
I confirmed Schaffer’s account with Federal
Home Loan Bank Board officials
quoted in Fools for Scandal. Oddly, The Times never did.

"We are in a nearly no-win situation because
Bush demagogically shifted the fears brought on by 9/11
to justify the invasion of a nation that represented scant military threat to the U.S. This and other
glaring contradictions have been obscured by yammering talk-show yahoos who have been attempting
to equate dissent with treason and capitulation...Unfortunately, this narrow intolerance for debate has
been exemplified by our president, whose vituperative attacks on longtime democratic allies such as
France and Germany set a new low for American diplomacy. Further, Bush's belief -- according to his
close friend, Commerce Secretary Don Evans -- that God has called him to wage war on Iraq, leaves
little room for legitimate argument. When our leaders believe they are speaking for a Christian God
while invading a Muslim country, we should be deeply alarmed. Thus the debate over U.S. goals is
as warranted now as it ever has been."
--Robert Scheer, The View From the Throne
Why do Bush-loving Christians believe that
God wanted W to have Iraq's oil? Whatever happened to:
"Thou shalt not steal?
Thou shalt not kill?
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's goods?"
Those don't apply to never-elected, power-hungry killers?
Subject: American Reality
by Phillip Schuman
As vital as defense of the country is, the military cannot be put on a pedestal
and given a pass. It has been misused more often than not. As much as we can
honor the service of our young men and women in the military, the purposes for
which they risk and sacrifice life and limb are not ones they choose, and like
the rest of America, they have been betrayed at the top. Gen. Butler, Commandant
of the Marine Corps and recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor, called
war a racket, and our military interventions, acting as high class muscle enforcers
for the money boys at City National Bank (now CitiBank) and Chase.

"Why did the CIA say that they had provided
detailed information to the UN inspectors
on all of the high and medium suspect sites with the UN, when they had not? Did the CIA
act in this way in order not to undermine administration policy? Was there another
explanation for this? ... It undermines the credibility of the director of intelligence to be
making public statements relative to intelligence which are not factually accurate."

"Senior figures in the intelligence community and across Whitehall briefed the former international
development secretary Clare Short that Tony Blair had made a secret agreement last summer with
George Bush to invade Iraq in February or March, she claimed yesterday. In damning evidence to
the foreign affairs select committee, Ms Short refused to identify the three figures, but she cited their
authority for making her claim that Mr Blair had actively deceived the cabinet and the country in
persuading them of the need to go to war ."

Telling Clark He’s Not a Patriot
by Joe Conason
All those factors explain the sudden appeal of Wesley Clark, the retired general, television commentator
and political flirt who has yet to declare his interest in the Presidency or even his partisan affiliation. In theory,
he personifies the Democratic answer to the Rove strategy. A native Arkansan, Mr. Clark graduated first
in his class from West Point, won several service decorations, went to Oxford as a Rhodes scholar, and
completed his Army career with victory in Kosovo and four stars as supreme allied commander of NATO.
Aside from Mr. Kerry, he is the only candidate with real military experience—and that includes both the
incumbent President and the Vice President, each of whom found a way to avoid their generation’s war.

Letter by bartcop.com reader in the Dallas Morning Whore
Frantic critics of President George W. Bush should immediately cease their panic attacks of
the American failure to locate even a single Iraqi weapon of mass destruction. Please regain
your composure and your sanity! There is absolutely nothing to fear since any such weapons
have been safely placed in the custody of the same people who have possession of George W.
Bush's strangely missing complete Texas Air National Guard personnel records from 1972-1973.
As long as both are in their custody, the American public (and Bush) have absolutely nothing to fear!
"I'm Just A Bug Man"
"During the 2000 campaign, Bush opposed a DeLay-backed plan on tax credits for the poor to
demonstrate that he was a "new kind of Republican," distinct from the G.O.P.'s tightfisted,
meanspirited wing. At the time, Bush accused DeLay & Co. of trying to "balance their budget
on the backs of the poor." According to a DeLay confidant, Bush later apologized and said he
would not use DeLay as a right-wing bogeyman again. Yet the two men continue to air differences
in public. For DeLay, a former exterminator from Houston, Bush is a Republican born of privilege
and more representative of his party's country-club wing, despite his Midland, Texas, roots and
frequent trips to his Crawford ranch. Explaining himself, DeLay simply says, "I'm just a bug man."
