"In my first five seconds as president, I would

Ashcroft trampling on the Bill of Rights."

Hey guys, that's all well and good, but where the hell were you

"Another senior official with knowledge of the intelligence said the CIA had doubts about the accuracy
of the documents underlying the allegation, which months later turned out to be forged.
The new disclosure suggests how eager the
White House was in January to make Iraq's nuclear program
a part of its case against Saddam Hussein even in the face of earlier objections by its own CIA director.
It also appears to raise questions about the administration's explanation of how the faulty allegations
were included in the State of the Union speech.
If a sitting president can wipe the slate clean at a time when he was trying to convince the American people that
invading Iraq was in our national security interests and misleading the country into a war in which our men and
women as well as thousands of Iraqi civilians would die, certainly an admission of having sex should put an end
to the diatribe that still fills the AM dial. It seems like the entire administration is in lockstep over this little "oversight."
Donald Rumsfeld testified in front of a
congressional hearing last week saying that he just found out about the
Niger report being false in the last couple days. And he said it with a straight face.
Is Saturday Night Live alum Jon Lovitz running this administration?
"Yeah, I, uh, didn't know about the forgery until
just this week. I, uh, was out of the office and forgot to read
any CIA reports or newspapers over the past year.
"Yeah, that's the ticket."
"The tragic failure of the administration's
efforts to build international support before
launching its impatient rush toward war against Iraq is now bearing its bitter, bitter fruit."
--Sen. Robert Byrd, who finally stopped yelling at Clinton Attribution
House of Waffles

The president and Condi Rice can shuffle the shells and blame George Tenet, but it smells of mendacity.
Mr. Clinton indulged in casuistry to hide personal weakness. The Bush team indulges in casuistry to perpetuate its image of political steel.
Dissembling over peccadillos is pathetic.
Dissembling over pre-emptive strikes is pathological, given over 200 Americans
1,000 wounded in Iraq, and untold numbers of dead Iraqis. Our troops are in "a shooting gallery," as Teddy Kennedy put it, and our
spy agencies warn that we are on the cusp of a new round of attacks by Saddam snipers.
Why does it always come to this in Washington?
The people who ascend to power on the promise of doing things differently
making the same unforced errors their predecessors did. Out of office, the Bush crowd mocked the Clinton propensity for stonewalling;
in office, they have stonewalled the 9/11 families on the events that preceded the attacks, and the American public on how — and why
— they maneuvered the nation into the Iraqi war.
Their defensive crouch and obsession with
secrecy are positively Nixonian.
(But instead of John Dean and an aggressive media, they have Howard Dean and a cowed media.)
Maureen, don't forget your personal lies helped elect this
You could've told the truth back in the summer of 2000, but you knew you could make more money

You and Russert and Schieffer and FOX and CNN all promoted the Monster into the White House.
Some of those dead are on you, Maureen.
Letters to the editor
Now that the United States has finally admitted
that the "evidence" implicating Iraq in the potential production
of nuclear weapons used in President Bush's January State of the Union address was wrong and based on
forged documents, the U.S. government is caught in a lie.
The CIA went to Niger to investigate these
claims last fall and found them to be false. The CIA urged Bush
not to use this information in his address. The false evidence was apparently irresistible, though, because it
made such a good case for war.
The U.S. soldier death toll in Iraq is at
143 and the Iraqi civilian casualty estimates are in the 6,000 to 7,000
conservatively. Rumsfeld just doubled the daily estimates of how much he thinks it will cost each day to occupy Iraq.
The war is not over.
The Bush administration should be.

"Bush has been missing in action in explaining
to the American people why its important to stay in Iraq."
--Sen. Joseph Biden, one of the worst Bush enablers on our (?) side Attribution
He's hiding bad economic news. Here's how.
"The Bush economic team has snuffed its own reports when they reach conclusions that don't match
the administration's rosy scenarios. The administration deep-sixed a study commissioned by then
Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill that predicts huge budget deficits well into the future. As noted by
the Financial Times in late May, this survey, which asserted that the baby-boom generation's future
health care and retirement costs would swamp U.S. coffers, was dropped from a 2004 budget summary
published in February 2003— at the same time the White House was campaigning for a tax-cut package
that critics warned would greatly expand future deficits. "The study's [analysis of future deficits] dwarfs
previous estimates of the financial challenge facing Washington," wrote the FT. According to the FT,
a Bush official said the study was merely a thought exercise.
The crazy bastard has thrown away a generation
worth of Social Security funds.
In the near future, America is going to wake up and realize the bank is broke,
and we'll look back and say, "But why didn't anybody warn us what Bush was doing?"
"My super-rich oil buddies needed a tax cut so they could create jobs..."
Like Mother, Like Son
Jonah Goldberg takes his ball and goes home
"Now, for those who don’t know it–and my email shows that many do not – Goldberg is the son
of the notorious, sleazoid web maven, Lucianne the Bat, the scheming literary agent who helped
expose Bill Clinton’s sex life. If not for his mother’s standing among those on the right–and the
favors she had stockpiled for being a tool of the anti-Clinton machine–Jonah would probably be
punching data in a terminal somewhere, rather than sitting on talk shows as a pundit.
I heard one internet rumor that Jonah's father is Lyndon Johnson.
O'Reilly the Fascist
“Cosmos Left believes FOX talk show host Bill O'Reilly has emerged as one of the most dangerous individuals in this country.
There are other bourgeois pundits more personally obnoxious than O'Reilly--Hannity, Colter, Limbaugh--but none of these
cretins pretends to be working class heroes. O'Reilly does claim to speak for workers, as fascist demagogues usually do."
“It’s very easy to pick one little flaw here
or one little flaw there. The overall reason we went into Iraq
was sound and morally sound. And it’s not just because somebody forged or made a mistake on whether
Saddam Hussein was looking for nuclear material from Niger or whatever.”

It's an interesting but long piece on how
Americans are being manipulated by fear, but what I found
most interesting in the piece is near the end of the article. They mention Annthrax Coulter's infamous
remarks about killing their leaders and converting them to Christianity.
Apparently the website of a militant Islamist
group republished her comments as proof that America
is out to get all Muslims. Read the article for their full rant. Interesting.
Take care and keep hammering!
Tina, America IS out to get all Muslims
Bush says he's getting his orders directly from God, himself.
And God, in the Commandments, says "Thou shalt have no false Gods before me,"
so if the Tinhorn Dictator is listening very hard, he'll probably hear God's selfish command
that he murder all the false Gods" to be in compliance with his personal Invisible Cloud Being.
Religion is the willful practice of insanity.
Having a religiously insane man commanding America's military is very dangerous.
"Bart, are you sure?"
What if God tells 'President' Pinhead that he's lost faith in
the human race and wants it destoryed?
What if God told Bush that Paul Wellstone was a problem that needs to be dealt with?
Is Bush supposed to disregard what his personal Invisible Cloud
Being tells him?
Or will he fall in line like a Senate Democrat and follow the orders given to him?
Have a question or a comment?

Trading on fear
Shortly after Coulter's column appeared, it resurfaced on the website of the Mujahideen Lashkar-e-Taiba - one of the
largest militant Islamist groups in Pakistan - which works closely with al-Qaida. At the time, the Lashkar-e-Taiba site
was decorated with an image that depicted a hairy, monstrous hand with claws in place of fingernails, from which blood
dripped on to a burning globe of planet earth. A star of David decorated the wrist of the hairy hand, and behind it stood
an American flag. The reproduction of Coulter's column used bold, red letters to highlight the sentence that said to
"invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity".
To make the point even stronger, the webmaster
added a comment: "We told you so. Is anyone listening out there?
The noose is already around our necks. The preparation for genocide of ALL Muslims has begun ... The media is now
doing its groundwork to create more hostility towards Islam and Muslims to the point that no one will oppose this mass
murder which is about to take place. Mosques will be shut down, schools will be closed, Muslims will be arrested,
and executed. There may even be special awards set up to kill Muslims. Millions and millions will be slaughtered like sheep.
Remember these words because it is coming. The only safe refuge you have is Allah."
So, we have a monkey president, who spoke of
"this crusade," and begged the enemy to "bring
'em on" after did his
cock-of-the-walk strut on the deck on the Lincoln. Then add the "Kill them all" comments from Bush's good friend
Ann Coulter and you've got a real mess on your hands - a mess a smarter president would - and did - avoid.
Anybody got a match?
Subject: Roll out the new product
Bush's job performance ratings are falling,
as they have every summer.
Look for a "new product rollout" in September -- and I'm afraid a lot of people
will have to die to get those numbers back up.
Excuse me, but the two lies are not the same.
Lie number one:
was none of our damn business
didn't cost us a single penny
got nobody hurt or killed
(Unless you count what Ken Starr did to Jim McDougal)
Lie number Two:
is certainly our business
has cost us $100 billion so far
has killed 200 of our bravest soldiers
has killed thousands of innocent Iraqi's
...the two lies are not the same.
It is asinine to suggest they are equal.
Bush stands by CIA after Iraq Mistake
That's a headline on CNN.com.
I can't even bring myself to read it. I need one of those buckets.
On Friday, Bill Oh-really was playing fair
and balanced calling for a comment by the
"president" about the "lie." I wonder what time Karl Rove called Bill to let him know
it would be great to start talking tough before Bush could clear his name. Bravo!
The Tulsa CBS alffiliate interviewed a local soldier Sunday.
He said his unit lost 18 men.
Eighteen friends of his are dead because Bush told some lies to steal some oil.
I wonder if he's going to vote for the man whose lies got those men killed?

President Bush could lose the 2004 election. Before now, I didn't think that was possible.
Considering Bush's general popularity, political skills that dwarf his father's and the prospective
Democratic alternatives, I thought Bush would win reelection - and probably easily.
What's changed? The prospect for a major
scandal involving the administration's arguments
for going to war against Iraq and, specifically, the President's cavalier, even arrogant, responses
to the charge that he and his aides distorted or exaggerated the intelligence on which the case
for battle rested.

the tune in Washington/California
by John H
Bush said again and again during the 2000 campaign that he was going to "change the tone in Washington."
Perhaps it was simply one of his verbal flubs. Maybe he meant to say he'd change the TUNE in Washington,
again and again and again and again. We weren't going to engage in nation-building in a Bush presidency.
Now we're just crazy about nation-building. We were going to get Bin Laden dead or alive. Now he's not
all that important. We were going to march on Iraq to disarm it. Now we're there to liberate the Iraqi people.
The only thing that changed was when Bush was sworn in, the GOP
stopped filing wild-ass lawsuits
and holding hearings on fabricated "scandals" that never amounted to anything more than a blow job.
The tone changed because the bastards stopped their constant attacks on an innocent man.

The former supervisor of a Newport Beach
youth program was sentenced Friday to life in prison
on 25 counts of lewd conduct and assault for sucking the toes of 20 boys.
Trenton Veches, 32, will be eligible for parole in 15 years.
During the trial, the defense lawyer said
Veches' actions with boys 6 to 10 years old were "horseplay."
But the prosecutor said Veches "clearly befriended these children, manipulated them and he sexually molested them."
Veches was arrested in April 2002 after
a co-worker reported seeing him sucking a boy's toes.
I'm no expert, but how can you sexually molest a boy below the ankle?
