Subject: How the hell did Mondale lose Minnesota?
'Cause he's MONDALE--he lost in 1980, 1984--when
he was at the top
of his game--why wouldn't he lose again--15 years after being out of politics??
You are mistaken.
Mondale won Minnesota in 1980 and 1984.
Subject: The Software
I read your page everyday, and I think you
are on to something here with the voting machines being rigged.
I thought this the night of the Repugs sweep. Watch the tape of Mondale kicking Coleman’s butt.
Coleman let Mondale crawl all over him.
That shit eating brown nosed look Coleman projected led me to
believe he knew something that maybe everyone else didn’t know. Like rigged voting machines would do
the work, and why not let the Democrat have his say. It likely wouldn’t matter in the end anyway.
The night of election 2000, as my husband
and I watched the farce of all times, I mentioned to my husband
that Bush was to cocksure of himself. He was mixed up in something. It was like he knew to much.
Almost the same look that Coleman had on his rotten two faced mug as he sparred with Mondale.
The Repugs cheated in Florida, why not again
all across the united states? Let us win a few races so that
things looked normal. Aside from the spinless Democrats and boot licking often associated with Dashle
and Gephart, I think the Democrats might not have done as poorly as was said. Those voting machines
made the determination of who was elected, and if it were pushed hard enough I think something could
be done about it. Ask dashle and Gephardt if they have the guts to start the ball bouncing in this direction!
Start such a stink that Bush will lay in
bed worrying at night about the outcome.
After all, when you have a ex-druggie for President…anything’s possible.
Keep up the good work.
Play "Who's the nutjob?"

Subject: Who Reads BartCop?
Little old ladies, for one.
Went to a consolation / potluck non-party
for our local anti-Bush campaign Friday night,
where attendance was 95% female and the average age was past retirement. I was impressed
at how these mostly "little old ladies" were so politically savvy, with scathing references to
Diebold and Votescams and Mediawhores and the failure of Dems to "get out the message"
tossed around fast and furious. The phrase "Bush Crime Family" sparked a ten-minute
discussion on whether Dumbshit or his mother was the antichrist.
Then I get to Bartcop this morning (I do
my computering before sunrise) and see some
suspiciously familiar phrases. So I call my 72-year-old friend who is also a pre-dawn type
and demand that she come clean: Did you read Friday's Bartcop before the supper meeting?
Well, yes, she admitted. All her friends
in the retirement community read Bartcop.
But they don't tell their children. The kids might be "shocked" that great-grandma
reads swear words (and uses them) sometimes too.
It's an odd thing... A disproportionate
amount of my contributions come
from ladies named Mildred, Edith, Earlene, Hazel and Zelda.

Subject: Accountability and the new trifecta
I hear people saying that now that the goons
control both houses of Congress and the Supreme Court
and the presidency that Moron will have to accept responsibility for the damage he does to us, accept
responsibility for the things he doesn't get done, quit blaming Clinton for everything.
Well, that's total Bushit!
When the Republicans had control at the
start of Moron's reign of terror (before Jeffords did the big switch),
they were blaming Clinton then for everything they wanted to duck, and they were getting away with it.
It doesn't matter how much control these
thugs have, Clinton is always to blame. Right? So the new trifecta
doesn't let Clinton off the hook. It only makes it easier for Moron and his buddies to finish raping and pillaging.
Little George Bush has never been held accountable in his life.
I'll bet he left his bicycle outside overnight, and when it was stolen,
Daddy just bought him a newer, better bike.
The stolen election,
the Enron-driven murdering submarine,
the spy plane Bush donated to China,
the economy crashing,
the stolen 5 trillion,
Harken and Halliburton,
September 11th -- it's all Clinton's fault.
Hell, I'll bet Hillary was driving the Jeep when Pickles' fiance was killed, too
Sometimes I need to say some stupid-sounding things, because not
saying them is worse.
Over the weekend I got an e-mail from a longtime reader, supporter and multiple-contributor.
It began: "Guess you won't talk to me any more, but just wanted to tell you..."
Try to understand we get between 400-500 e-mails every day.
Some days a certain mailbox doesn't even get opened, so next time I'm in there, your mail
from yesterday could be buried 200 deep, so it's easy for something to get overlooked.
...and while we're on the subject, let me suggest other ways to get your letter noticed:
If the subject line says
gotta see this!" I'll assume it's spam and delete it.
Please drop me a clue what it is, instead of a generic "Have you seen this?"
If you send something you want published, send a title with it and an excerpt:
That saves a lot of time. If you didn't write it, please send the name of the author.
If you send a link, drop me a clue what it is. Some pages take a while to load
and I hate to chase the same story link more than once.
If you send me a story - send the link, too!
If it's some big expose of Karl Rove (yeah, ...right) it makes a big difference if it's
the New York Whore Times or justscrewingwithyourhead.com
Don't send text as an attachment. Send text inside the e-mail.
Don't send cartoons or graphics embedded in the message - send as attachments.
I can't copy a graphic embedded in the e-mail.
Also, if the graphic's not signed, tell me where you got it.
I'd hate the run the "Dancing Bush," and find out it's from mikemalloy.com
(It's killer, by the way)
If it's important or time-sensitive, or a large piece, like a column (or notice of legal action - ha ha)
send it to Christian at firstname.lastname@example.org
Last thing - shorter is better. If my choice is four short mails or one long one, I'll take four short
Whatever you do - don't stop sending mail. It's the lifeblood of bartcop.com
Supreme Court Deathwatch
I have to wonder how long it will be before
the left leaning justices have unfortunate "accidents".
I've started a pool, basically where you guess who gets it first, when, and how.
My personal guess is Breyer, sometime between
Christmas and New Year's Eve,
by a "drunk driver" who somehow manages to drive away and never be seen again.
Man, I hope I'm wrong.

Alan Greenspan lowered the prime interest

Oklahoma judge blocks referendum prohibiting "sport"
Oklahoma's newly enacted ban on cockfighting was supposed to become law Friday, but a state district judge
in rural Idabel issued a TRO blocking it until he can examine a challenge to the law's constitutionality.
Judge Willard Driesel agreed to block the law until a hearing scheduled for Nov. 18.
Cockfighting and Jim Inhofe (R-Pissquik) - it's what Oklahoma wants
Over the past few days, I've reflected on
why there are so many bleating sheep in America
who were so easily bought off by George W. Putsch's $300 "tax cut doggie biscuits" last year.
I asked myself: Didn't these folks notice
how much that free money actually cost them in higher
petroleum prices, massive job losses, 401(k) washouts, etc.?
Didn't they realize that a $600 per family
"tax cut" (read: Populist Flavor doggie biscuit) in a year
when the average household income declined by over $900 actually results in a net loss?
Or were they simply too lazy to do the math or to care?
Then I got to thinking about it, and the
answer hit me.
These are the same kind of ignorant fools who get all excited
when they win $12.00 after buying $46.00 worth of scratch-off lottery tickets.
It's a damn shame.
Keep fighting the good fight...
AB, it's actually worse than you describe it.
That $600 was a LOAN, not a tax rebate.
They got it all back on April 15th.
What's wrong with what went wrong
In the super bonus today, most folks seem to be
pissed off at the DLC
leadership. I agree they've been adrift at least since 2000, and
probably for some time before that. But having a strong message will no
longer work. It wouldn't have worked for them on Tuesday. Having the
right message, and being the man of vision didn't help Mr. Gore when he
did everything right in 2000. The press didn't want him.
the Howler. There is no independent press in this country
anymore, not one that
amounts to anything. Not one that's heard. You, the Horse, Mother Jones, et al, do the work,
but you're *all* read by dozens, and the big guys will never propagate your words. No one hears.
They hear Limbaugh. They hear the Faux whores.
They hear the new right CNN.
...they got Darth fucking Vader lending gravitas to the wingers.
It makes me want to weep. It makes me tired.
It isn't going to end in two years.
It'll be Clinton and the Democratic Party's fault in 2004. We'll be looking at strong
positive indications that we're on the right path in 2008 when Jebbie is elected with 65%.
We'll need to keep a strong right leadership
in power to protect us from ourselves when
Noelle runs, refusing to discuss her mildly irresponsible days when she was young, in 2016.
Maybe Democrats should own guns.
victory for a hollow man
How Norm Coleman sold his soul for a Senate seat
by Garrison Keillor
He was 9 points down to Wellstone when the senator's plane went down. But the tide was
swinging toward the president in those last 10 days. And Norm rode the tide. Mondale took
a little while to get a campaign going. And Norm finessed Wellstone's death beautifully.
The Democrats stood up in raw grief and yelled and shook their fists and offended people.
Norm played his violin. He sorrowed well in public, he was expertly nuanced. The mostly
negative campaign he ran against Wellstone was forgotten immediately.
Hey, what's up with the Dems always bashing gun owners?
FFS, the left is supposed to be "intelligent"
people who get educated on the issues.
I am doing a paper on gun control for an English class. I'll shoot it your way when it's done,
for your perusal. The biggest thing I have noticed is a lack of any empirical data on the anti's side.
It seems like they hold their opinions not
based on fact, but on fear. Another thing that should raise
people's hackles is that the biggest proponents of gun conrol, Sarah and James Brady, are Republicans.
At least I haven't seen anything which says
they have changed their affiliation.
Jason, I believe location is the key.
If you have 3,000 people living in an apartment in NYC, and no gun control, you might have a thousand guns
in that building. Then, some minor altercation could turn into another Gettysburg - that's not good.
In NY, you have cops on most corners. A scream will almost always
draw a crowd.
Ever notice on Law & Order there's always a witness or two to each crime?
But, if you own a ranch or a farm in Arizona or Montana, and the
sheriff is 30 minutes away,
you must be able to protect your family. If you're gunless out there, any two high school punks
can drop by and own you, your daughters, your wife and eveything you worked for your whole life.
Please - somebody argue with me on that.
So now we have the problem that guns are illegal, say, in DC,
but there very legal, even encouraged
in next door Virginia where the NRA has it's headquarters. That's a 20 minute drive from DC.
Guns are here - they're not going anywhere.
Every time a liberal screams "fewer guns" we lose 10,000 votes.
The "all guns, all-the-time, no-limits" gunnuts are the enemy - not the guns themselves.
The vast right-wing conspiracy
Even though many of the stories and innuendos about Clinton were spurious, the attack financed
and spun by the far right paid off in largely discrediting him. In his recent book "Blinded by the Right"
David Brock admits fabrication and embellishment in his "Troopergate" articles for The American
Spectator which directly helped spur the investigation into Clinton's sex life. Yet while the suspicions
and innuendos about Clinton were being repeated in the mainstream press, the onus was completely
on Clinton to prove he was innocent after already being found guilty by the right wing influence mongers.
This is what you need to show your ditt-monkey friends when they
mention "all those scandals."
There was never any scandal, unless you consider a powerful man having semi-sex "scandalous."
But the GOP's sexscapades will more than double anything you'll find from the Democrats.
But the whore media doesn't want the facts - they want the story that will sell the best.
Why did VNS bow out the morning of the election?
VNS got into a lot of trouble for correctly calling
Florida for Gore
after exit polls showed him winning by a comfortable margin. After that
'debacle' they were forced to completely re-design their computer
hardware and software. They were my client, and ran on a large IBM
mainframe with legacy software. They were forced to get off the
mainframe and on to a completely different hardware and software
platform. Everything had to be built from scratch. Supposedly, they
didn't have time to fully test the new environment thoroughly far enough
ahead of this election cycle. Therefore, they chose to use this election
to test the new environment, but not publicly release the results.
Why does VNS think their "Gore wins" Florida 2000 projection was wrong?
Bush guaranteed he would win Florida, even after VNS said he lost it.
Why is nobody else suspicious?
We may all bear the cost of the Democrats' failure
"And how the Democrats must miss Mr Clinton. Theirs is a timid leaderless party that has lost
its flair for campaigning. Its dependence on the charisma of one man, already apparent in the
2000 Gore campaign, is now painfully obvious. There were a few consolation prizes picked up
in gubernatorial contests, but this was one bitter night for the party...

In the Final
Oh listen, America, for I hear a drumbeat
I hear a drumbeat and a call to war
Not war for freedom, or liberty,
But a war for security.
And security was never sold at the marketplace
I hear a call for restriction,
That men might be cast in chains without bond or accusation
And no man may know their crimes
For security demands it, it is said.
But have we security if the Constitution fall?
I hear a call for empire,
That the emperor may command the troops without let or hinderance,
But the emperor will rule at his whim, not yours,
And who shall dare stay his hand?
The emperor will never allow resistance to his commands,
For that is the first law of Empire,
What then shall happen to your precious right,
Lest a man should think to kill a King?
I smell the breath of cordite,
The bitter scent of powder,
Some there are who will not sell
Their freedom for false promises of a cowards safety
Yet they must fall before the gunships
What use a fowling piece ‘gainst the Apache?
Yet the future ones shall record them
As the last fallen hope of the Republic
Though there was no hope at all.
What flag shall fly then?
Whose face on the coin of empire?
And who shall join me to mourn at the grave of Uncle Sam?
