"I want to talk about a person who has lost
his job and doesn't have the Bush economy to blame.
That's right. I'm talking about the intellectual godfather of modern conservatism. I'm talking
about Michael Savage. This towering giant of our 21st century conservatism was fired by MSNBC
because he had this to say to a caller to his show who identified himself as gay -- quote --
"You're one of the sodomites. You should only get AIDS and die, you pig."
Mr. Savage, it's just not fair. You would
lose your job, while Rick Santorum, elected by the Senate
Republicans to be one of their leaders, gets to keep his. You may be gone from television, but you
will not be gone from the hearts, minds and bookshelves and politics of today's right-wingers.
They'll always admire you for your stupidity, intolerance and bigotry.

9/11 panel: Gov't agencies hampering probe
The federal commission investigating the Sept. 11 terror attacks said today that its work was
being hampered by the failure of executive branch agencies, especially the Pentagon and the
Justice Department, to respond quickly to requests for documents and testimony.
Why does Bush need to stonewall what he knew and when he knew it about 9-11?
I remember 1998.
When Ken Starr was issuing subpoenas for Hillary's underwear draw
in the presidential bedroom,
Clinton's lawyers tried to block that (they were unsuccessful, so Starr's goons got to ruffle through Hillary's
panties while they, no doubt, wore the special pants with the holes in the pockets) and the press screamed,
"What do the Clintons have to hide?" at the top of their collective lungs.
Three years later, America suffers it's worst day in history and
this unelected Rapist-of-the-Treasury and
Murderer-of-the-Economy is blocking the investigation into 3000 deaths on his watch while he was busy
with ANOTHER month-long vacation talking to the cows in Crawford.
Hillary's panties vs 3000 dead?
I guess it's because I'm a lefty, but I think the 3000 dead are more important.
Bush and the press say we have no right to know what Bush
and the American taxpayer had every right to ruffle thru Hillary's underwear.
But America wants to believe that Bush is innocent in the 9-11
so we're going to stick our heads in the sand and fucking pretend.
A House Judiciary Committee report released last September found evidence raising "serious concerns"
that high officials at the Department of Justice executed a pre-meditated plan to destroy Inslaw and co-opt
the rights to its PROMIS software. The committee's call for an independent counsel have fallen on deaf ears.
One journalist, Danny Casolaro, died as he attempted to tell the story (see sidebar), and boxes of documents
relating to the case have been destroyed, stolen, or conveniently "lost" by the Department of Justice.
But so far, not a single person has been held accountable.
Baker doesn't back down from the truth
Is racism driving this non-story?
Chicago Cubs manager Dusty Baker didn't back down when asked about his recent comments
that black and Latin players were better suited to play in the heat than white players.
"I meant what I said. ... I try to be as honest
as possible, and if that's how I feel,
then that's how I feel." he told reporters.
Saturday, Baker said: "We were brought over
here for the heat. Isn't that history?
Your skin color is more conducive to heat than it is to the lighter-skinned people.
I don't see brothers running around burnt."
The comments have prompted debate on radio
shows and in newspaper columns across the country.
Sure, I'll bet Rush, Hannity, O'Reilly and
all the racists had cows over this.
Can anyone explain how Baker's comments are offensive?
Has the truth become offensive?
Who would argue that whites handle heat better?
Who's old enough to remember Jimmy "The
Greek" Snyder's comments that slaves were paired
together by size to produce larger and stronger children? If I remember that sorry episode right,
that not only got him fired but he was drummed out of all of sports for speaking the historical truth.
I've been critical of Baker in the past, but I'm with him on this one.
...and, taking this a step further,
and everybody needs to talke a breath before you launch when I say this, OK?
I'm going to offer some anecdotal evidence,
which is very dangerous when discussing race.
I live In Tulsa, Oklahoma, (not by choice).
Sometimes, you can be driving down Memorial
Drive, the biggest street in Tulsa, and if it's 106 degrees
in the July heat, and you catch up to a $50,000 Lexus with all it's windows rolled down, odde are the AC
in the Lexus is working just fine, because Lexus makes a damn fine car.
No, if you're a gambler, you'll assume the driver is a black person.
I see you racing to the send button on your
racist" e-mail, ...but am I right?
What other conclusion can one come to seeing a 2003 Lexus, new car tags in place,
and the windows are rolled down on the hottest day of the year?
We can only assume the driver likes it that way.
Is it racist talk to say "African Americans
handle heat better than whites?"
If African Americans don't mind the whites-numbing heat, it's wrong to point that out?
I'm sorry, but that's too much like, "You're not allowed to say OilBoy isn't a real president."
If it's true, I want the freedom to say
it. Hell, I want the freedom to say it if it's not true, but since
the truth is on my side, let's just stay here for now. If everyone agrees that facts are facts,
why should anyone catch some crap for saying what is true?
And yes, this is "racist talk," to the degree
that we're talking about racism.
Let the truth trump charges of "racism."

to awaken the conscience of America.

Toll in Iraq Nears '91 War Deaths
He's determined to out-do his Daddy in every way
The Pentagon has raised its count of Americans killed by hostile fire in Iraq since the war
began, a figure that approaches the 147 killed in the the smarter Bush's 1991 Gulf War.
Subject: In lieu of a staff, use this
I just needed to put this out there because
this really ruined my day when I heard it.
They're now reporting that they've got some Iraqi that they claim met with Atta in Prague.
And it conveniently comes at a time when the White House has had to come out and say that,
all right, yeah, the Niger/Uranium story was wrong.
It's so overt and it's such a freakin' lie that it twists my knickers into a huge wad.
And yet, the media continues to play along and the general, mouth-breathing public falls for it every time.
It's 9am. Is it too early for a shot of tequila?
Allows Suit on Cheney Energy Panel
Will this gang of thugs finally be held accountable for something?
Or will Bush's court step in and protect them from the law - again?
A federal appeals court dealt a setback to Bush Tuesday, refusing to stop a lawsuit
delving into Cheney's contacts with the energy industry as his task force was drafting
the White House's energy policy in concert with Kennyboy, the governor's good friend.
In a 2-1 ruling, the court rejected the
government's arguments that the lawsuit would be
an unconstitutional intrusion on the operations of the executive office of the president.
Well gee, it's a smaller intrusion than impeachment, I'd say.
Subject: fried chicken recipe
Here's belated kudos to you for your
I found on the site in the archives. It was the food hit of our 4th of July party.
The family spent the night at my sister
and brother-in-law's house in an unincorporated area
near Terrell in North Texas, so fireworks are allowed. We've had a big party there for the
last three years. What a feeling, sitting in lawn chairs, fireworks exploding above, the ashes
and cinders falling down on us. All their neighbors join in. Half-a-dozen grills were lined up cooking away.
I cooked 25 pieces of chicken but used bone-in
thighs and breasts instead of the boneless breast.
Used a gallon of Wesson oil in a big stock pot. Heated on an electric stove on the next-to-last setting
as you said. It took over an hour to cook in batches but WOW! the chicken came out great.
This is now my definitive fried-chicken
recipe (did gave you credit).
Since you cook, you know what I mean by a definitive recipe.
The definitive rises above all others.
Thanks again for the great recipe.
Hope you had a good 4th.
Loyal BartCop reader,
Calvin, great letter. That Train Station Chicken just can't
It reminds me, I forgot to tell about our 4th of July dinner.
We either had steak or burgers, I don't remember, because the
beef wasn't the star on the show.
Mrs. Bart whipped up some of her extra-peaky mashed potatos* but they weren't the star, either.
I had recently acquired a bottle of Herradura Anejo. And I had my Chinaco and some Silver King
picked-that-morning luxury corn, and some picked-that-day Kandy Korn.
So here I am, a bite o beef, and a tiny sip of the Herradura,
a taste of the Silver King, a peak of potatoe*
a taste of the Kandy Korn, and a tiny sip of the Chinaco- repeat!
Jesus, that was a fine meal.

Subject: Iraqi meat grinder
while the number of needless dead American
teenagers in Iraq is appalling, even more
appalling is the sort of reporting that says, "no Americans were killed, only four were wounded."
only wounded? where is the wounded count?
Americans in Iraq wear body armor.
it covers them from belly button to the top of their heads.
has anyone seen or thought about the kind of wounds these kids are taking?
i saw a lovely story about a young lieutenant
who was only wounded.
he had both his legs blown off below the knee caps.
thank God he was only wounded!
Ricky, for reasons I can't fathom, they
are happy to give their legs for Smirk.
The Fraudulent Deserter is their hero - they love him, no matter what.
When Clinton was president, they hated him
with everything they had.
They truly despised the man who kept them safe and always brought them home.
Now we have a man-child taunting the enemy to "bring it on" and they love that, too.
Most military families would rather lose their sons under Bush,
fighting for the BFEE's right
to get their oil from under the sand the Arabs claim as their own. What's most important to
the men losing life and limbs is that this 'president' would never lie about sex.
That's what's important to Americans today - having a good, moral, Christian 'president'
with a hardon for other people's oil who is ready to kill anybody who tries to stop him.
They forgive him for being a rich snot who never worked a day
in his life.
They forgive him for buying his way out of combat.
They forgive him for deserting his post during wartime.
They forgive him for stealing power and recklessly getting them killed.
He only lied about the reasons we went to war and why they're
dying, so they forgive him,
cheer him, pose for pictures when he wears his monkey suit and it makes people like you
and I sick to our stomachs to see them accept this fraud as their superior.
They even salute the son of a bitch..

Sure, the deaths on the USS Cole weren't
his fault, but the ones in Somalia sure as well were.
Clinton refused to give the military the go ahead to use the right amount force, and as a result
the forces theiir were under equipped to do their job.
Well Hayes, you can say that a hundred more times, but I'm not
Bush the smarter sent those men to Somalia, a piece of hell run by Al Qaeda.
He sent them without the protection they needed, and look what happened.
As former head of the CIA, and current president, Bush should've
known what he was sending
those boys into. Remember, the ONLY reason Bush sent them is because he'd just lost the election,
and he was days away from issuing pardons for the gang of thugs that were caught doing God-knows-what
around the globe and he needed a legacy - something besides, "He pardoned his co-conspirators."
To bury the Iran-Contra crimes forever, he dreamed up this little
to feed the starving Somalis without getting his facts straight and it blew up and 18 men died.
By the way, would you agree that Vietnam was Nixon's war?
...and again, your concern for the 18 in Somalia is touching,
But what about the almost 600 killed under Reagan, Bush and Pinhead?
Why do the GOP and the press continue to fret about those 18 brave men
but the other 600 never get any press? Weren't they important enough to remember, too?
Nevermind, join Bush's good puppy press and keep repeating "Somalia
was Clinton's fault."
After all, politics is important.

"Conservatives' lack of interest in the WMD
question takes an even more ominous turn when combined
with general support for presidential warmaking. Thus, [in the view of Republican presidents, legislators,
and conservative intellectuals], once someone is elected president, he or she faces no legal or political
constraint. The president doesn't need congressional authority; Washington doesn't need UN authority.
Allied support is irrelevant. The president needn't offer the public a justification for going to war that
holds up after the conflict ends. The president may not even be questioned about the legitimacy of his
professed justification. Accept his word and let him do whatever he wants, irrespective of circumstances.
This is not the government created by the Founders. This is not the government that any believer in liberty
should favor. It is foolish to turn the Iraq war, a prudential political question, into a philosophical test for
conservatism. It is even worse to demand unthinking support for Bush."

questions son's role in Iraq
Sends note to the boy some call 'president'
Jabbing his right hand in the air with juvenile bravado, Bush screeched in that irritating twang, more fit for
a Western movie than the world stage, "There are some who feel that the conditions are such that they can
attack us there. My answer is: Bring 'em on. We've got the force necessary to deal with the security situation."
He bragged, like John Wayne risen, that U.S. forces are "plenty tough" to deal with any threat.
The president then licked his lips with
the smug assurance of a frat boy showing the world how tough he is.
The flippant, immature "bring 'em on" remark finally got the usually timid Democrats to actually criticize the popular president.
"As I watched the footage of your landing on the
U.S.S. Lincoln last week and listened to the speech about major
combat being over, I found myself nauseated. While your political theatrics are being launched in hopes of getting
the popularity polls up, my son is still in danger in Baghdad. Your feeble attempt at camaraderie with returning
soldiers was patronizing, in my opinion.".
I say too, "Bring 'em on." Bring on the
simple truths so well understood and bravely said by a worried mother
from Indiana who loves her son and her country, but fears what George W. Bush is doing to our nation.
"Have her tongue cut out and then shoot her."

“In Hillary’s world, being a homemaker means

Letter to the Editor
"GOP rule-breaking seems to be SOP
by Dean Everman, West Palm Beach
It seems to me that Republicans will stop
at nothing if the ends justify the means.
If the vote counting in Florida doesn't go as planned, make the ballot counting stop.
If Texas Democrats won't vote on a strictly
partisan redistricting bill that favors only
Republican lawmakers, send Homeland Security agents to arrest them.
If you can't win an election against a Democratic
governor in California,
begin a recall petition and demand the right to vote again.
When Democrats in the U.S. Senate refuse
to confirm right-wing conservative judicial
nominees, try to change the rules so they can't filibuster any more.
Why can't Republicans (the self-proclaimed
moral high-grounders) compete on a level
playing field? It seems they either must cheat, undermine or change a longstanding
precedent to favor their objectives. The Bush administration recently refused to release
a critical Medicare memo warning how millions of senior citizens would be negatively
affected if Republican plans to inject market forces into the Medicare program were implemented.
Medicare chief Tom Scully declared that
Democrats in Congress had no right to any information from him.
"They don't have the right on the Hill to call up my actuary and demand things." Scully said he would
release the analysis "if I feel like it." I believe he has forgotten that he is a public official and serves
at the pleasure of the taxpayers.
And as if that weren't bad enough, the Bush
administration proposed a plan the same day to cut
overtime pay for millions of workers in exchange for comp time. In this time of financial uncertainty,
once again the Bush administration plans to take money out of the pockets of hard-working Americans.
Something is rotten in the party of Lincoln, and its odor is permeating the very core of American values.

Britney no longer a virgin
In the upcoming issue of W magazine, (ha ha) Spears details her relationship with Justin Timberlake.
"The most painful thing I have ever experienced
was that breakup. "We were together so long
and I had this vision. You think you're going to spend the rest of your life together. Where I come from,
the woman is the homemaker, and that's how I was brought up -- you cook for your kids."
So, you lost your virginity ...cooking?
