"...just close your eyes and try to imagine
Ted Kennedy landing that Navy jet on the deck of that aircraft carrier.
I don't know about you, I certainly don't want to see Teddy Kennedy in a Navy flight suit anytime soon."

Howard Dean has chosen Bush country as the site for a second television
advertisement that will begin broadcasting before any other candidate has gone on the air.
The ad will begin airing Monday in Austin,
The goal is to show that Dean won't back down from President Bush.
"The people of Texas know George W. Bush better
than anyone,'' said the announcement.
"Throughout this campaign, Howard Dean has been standing up to George W. Bush, and
what better place to stand up against what George W. Bush has done to the economy
and our nation than in Bush's home state of Texas.''
Dean's Campaign Web site: http://www.deanforamerica.com
Dean is showing more balls than any other Democrat.
He's showing brains, too:
He's smart enough to embrace the internet and it's not an accident
that he's raised more money than the others.
This Texas buy is a great poker move.
He's walking right up the the bully's strength and raising the stakes.
It's still waaay to early to be endorsing a candidate in the primaries,
but so far, Dean is
showing us he's got brains, balls and guts - and the Democrats needs a lot more of all three.
"On BBC TV last month, I reported this: following
the bombing of our embassies, the Clinton Administration sent
two delegations to Saudi Arabia to tell their royal highnesses to stop giving money to the guys who are killing us.
But Mr. Bush, once in office, put the kibosh on unfriendly words to the Saudis. Furthermore, in the summer of 2001,
Mr. Bush disbanded the US intelligence unit tracking funding of Al Qaeda. What is it our G-men were uncovering?
According to two separate sources speaking
to BBC, the funders of Al Qaeda fronts include those who have
previously funded Bush family business and political ventures. Now that's a wee bit embarrassing. Something you
wouldn't want in a congressional report. Something you may not want the FBI to dwell on. (And you can unlock
the womens and children: the BBC reports will NOT be broadcast on US television.)"

Boxer stabs Gray Davis
Democrats always stab their own in the back
As state and national Democratic leaders were insisting the party was united in Davis' fight
against the recall,. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Dagger), one of California's two senators,
questioned the wisdom of that strategy.
"We have to see where we are when the filing deadline
approaches," Boxer told the AP.
"I'm against the recall, but I think we have to look at who's on the ballot, we have to keep
our options open as to who's on the ballot," she said
Subject: I love ur site!
I've been reading your site for a few months
now, and I must say how nice it is to see someone speaking up
unabashedly about the important issues. I'm a Canadian, and I've been watching American politics closely
because whatever you guys do affects us a lot. It is so amazing to hear someone rip apart the lies and
falsehoods that some of the right-wing Republicans have been spreading around! Your site not only makes me
aware of what is going on, it gives me great fodder for debates and even makes me laugh and cheers me up,
as it is nice to see that not everybody is a ditto-monkey!
I'd love to say that all Canadians support
what you say, but that wouldn't be all true.
What I will say is that almost everyone I know loves to call your President an evil monkey!
Here's to good luck in the 2004 election,
(what was with that guy who called it unsophisicated?)
and thanks for a great site!!

"The administration sold the connection between

sheep turn on Wolfie
by the She-Thing of the Whore Times
Even now that it's clear the Bushies played up the terror angle because they thought it was
the best way to whip up support for getting rid of Saddam, the administration refuses to level
with the public. It dishes out the same old sauerkraut - conjuring up images of al-Qaida by calling
Iraqi guerrillas and foreign fighters "terrorists". Meanwhile, the real al-Qaida may be planning more
suicide hijackings of passenger planes on the east coast this summer, homeland security says.
Noting that the administration is tamping
down Iraq while al-Qaida is bubbling up elsewhere, Senator
Rush Feingold pressed: "I would ask you, Secretary Wolfowitz, are you sure we have our eye on the ball?"
My mom attends a lot of family support group
meetings and here is what she says
about soldiers being depressed.
Remember, for a lot of reservists, they
left real jobs to complete this Guard duty. They are making
house payments (or, more accurately not making house payments) because the difference in salary
between their job and their Gaurd salary is often significant and makes it difficult for them to keep up their payments.
My mom described one young mother raising
three kids by herself and going to the Army for food and clothes
--and she had to sell her husband's truck--all because they had lost his salary as a computer programmer while
he was on guard duty. This young woman is seriously worried about losing their house! Every time Rummy says:
"Psych, your tour is extended three more months" it makes it more likely that they will lose their house, car and family.
But Bush wants to cut hazardous duty pay
and family separation pay for the Guard while they are in Iraq.
Evidently that extra $120 a month is preventing some millionaire from getting a bigger tax cuts.
Baghdad may be a tough place, but it isn't
easy on the home front either.
There is a lot for the military to be depressed about.
Too bad those Conservatives don't support our troops by suspending car and house payments during their tour, eh Bart?
Tim, I'm fairly certain the law prevents any action being taken
against a soldier at war.
I certainly wouldn't want to explain to a local TV crew why my loan company repo'd
a soldier's car when he was fighting for and very possibly dying for his country.
Jeez man, what is this idolotry you have
for Bill Clinton the biggest fake since Warren G. Harding!
He faked his whole presidency.
Wait, you're saying peace and prosperity are fake, but war and
recession are real?
Let's go with the fake, then. Nobody died under Clinton.
He just wanted to bang babes,
I admit he has an eye for the ladies.
If Sharon Stone was on you like Rush
on a black welfare mother with two kids, how long could you hold out?
...stuff his pockets with cash and help
all his commie buddies
he met in Little Rock (Chinese restaurant owner moved back to China at the end of Clinton's
presidency after 30+ years in Little Rock cultivating Clinton for his bosses in Beijing).
He didn't make any money until after he left the White House, having done a great job..
Your boy Bush is stealing trillions and he's not even showing up for work.
That Chinese guy ran a restaurant accross the street from the
Clinton's not supposed to know the guy who owns the restaurant by the Capitol?
Clinton made a ton of commie friends when
he met with the KGB in Moscow
and hung out with them in England as a Rhodes Scholar
Dude, if Clinton was a KGB agent, I kinda
think Bush would've mentioned that in 1992.
...(who did not complete his education there
because his financiers wanted him to go to work
and get that governorship of Arkansas as fast as he could).
Take a breath...
Being governor of Arkansas used to pay $10,000 a year.
They eventually raised that to a whopping $35,000.
Who are Clinton's "financeers?"
Clinton was broke his entire life.
Are you saying he sold out for peanuts?
Got any facts to back up the wild charges?
Jeez man, you are supportive of a guy cultivated
and financed by the Chinese commies who plan
to be at war with us by 2015.
Dude, how did you get wind of the ChiCom's plans for 2015?
Have you contacted the White House to warn them?
Have you read "The War Against the USA in 2015" written by the Chinese military chairman of their joint chiefs?
Sorry, I don't read Chinese...
Meanwhile Hillary is cavorting with Maoists in San Francisco and elsewhere in the 1960s,
You've been listening to talk radio again, haven't you?
That Moaist/60's stuff is pure Rush.
...getting a lot of funding from the same Chinese guys who tell her to hook Bill and make him governor of Arkansas,
Hillary is a Chinese agent, too? I wonder why Ken Starr
didn't focus on this stuff. He was only after the sex,
and now Ken the Repub comes forward with proof that Bill & Hillary are actually secret agents or dupes for
the ChiComs and poor Hardon Kenny was barking up the wrong tree.
That's so sad for your side.
...then President of the USA. They
promise her they will fund her, too, if she does a good job with Bill.
Note the timing of the war is 2015, the year before Hillary's second term ends as President if she runs in 2008.
Now, the Chinese are patient folks, but when they see an opportunity they move quickly.
Dude, can I buy an ounce of what you're smoking?
I haven't had pot that good since college.
Bill and Hillary have made about $20 million in the last three years.
What could China be paying them to sell out?
BTW, did you know Bush's uncle runs China? That's why Bush
got on his knees and begged China
to forgive America for flying out spyplane in international waters. Bush said he was very sorry, then
he said he was very, very sorry that our plane was flying in international waters when China shot it down.
The reason he bent over for China is because thr BFEE id making
Remember - Poppy was ambassadot - they've been sucking China for three decades.
Now they are moving her election up to 2004 because Bush looks beatable.
She can always back out if Bush zooms ahead before the nominating conventions begin.
Dude, can I have a ride in your time machine?
Can you tell me which three horses will win the next triple crown races?
I could use a rich six weeks in Vegas.
Got it Bart, this is the real world and
your buddies Clinton are working very, very hard
to be a major part of your future and maybe the end, the absorption, of the USA.
Happy trails, buddy.
Ken, seriously, how much for an ounce of that?
Can you take a post-dated check?
And really, you have to remember that handjobs like Rush are being
paid $28M a year
to fabricate these wild stories for which you've fallen. Be honest, if I gave you $28M,
wouldn't you say Hillary is the greatest woman in American history?
Of course you would - you're a Republican...

-- Bill Maher, HBO
The new estimates show that, under Bush, total outlays will have risen $408 billion in just three years
to $2.272 trillion: an enormous increase in federal spending of 22 percent. Administration officials privately
admit that spending is too high. Yet they argue that deficits are appropriate in times of war and recession.
So, is it true that the war on terrorism has resulted in an increase in defense spending? Yes. And, is it also
true that a slow economy has meant a decreased stream of tax revenues to pay for government? Yes again.
But the real truth is that national defense
is far from being responsible for all of the spending increases.
According to the new numbers, defense spending will have risen by about 34 percent since Bush came into office.
But, at the same time, non-defense discretionary spending will have skyrocketed by almost 28 percent. Government
agencies that Republicans were calling to be abolished less than 10 years ago, such as education and labor, have
enjoyed jaw-dropping spending increases under Bush of 70 percent and 65 percent respectively.
America has never had more government than we have now.
The talk radio Nazi blowhards have been screaming "smaller government" for a decade,
but since their boy wants to make the federal government into everybody's nanny, they've
changed their tune and now bigger government is better government.
Reagan the Puppet played the same game. He ran on the "government
is the problem" plank,
then proceeded to spend more money than every president from Washington thru Carter COMBINED
This "smaller government" plays to the extra stupid, the largest
voting block in this country.
They promise more money in your pocket in the campaign, then they go on the mother of
all spending sprees. Meanwhile their base, who backed his 'smaller government' rhetoric
in the campaign, cherrs him on as he explodes the national debt for his pet programs.

no millionaire behind
I have two ways to jumpstart the economy:
1. Stop taxbreaking multi-billionaires with
the b.s. that giving them more money will create jobs
(when we know damn right well it doesn't. Didn't work in the 80's and it sure as hell isn't working now).
2. Impeach Bush and his pack of murderering
Let him get another four years, and this country is through for sure.
Another friend attacks
The Vegas Hard Rock serves $75 tequila shots

stupid enought to spend that much on something they will either puke or piss away in a matter of hours.
First, I paid $17.50 for a fourth of a shot of that because I had to try it.
Second, I've never gotten sick from tequila - I don't know anyone who has.
I know plenty of people who've gotten sick on Cuervo, but that's not tequila.
The one part you got right was yes, since I'm a human being, liquids
leave the body, but that's kind of a crazy thing to accuse me of, isn't it?
Much like the Bush administration gets away
with charging a billion a week
so that human lives can get pissed away for lies and bullshit.
Yes, that's right - I'm Bush's twin because he pisses away lives.

- HBO Comedy Special: Bill Maher,
Victory Begins at Home
by Midnight Warner
HBO is airing Bill Maher's one-man Broadway
show. Well, yes, it was a one-man Broadway show
but we all really know it's just a long set of old-fashioned stand up. But, as anyone running for office
will tell you, labels aren't important.
Hey, Bill Maher is funny and his special
is definitely worth watching. Does he say things just to be
contrary sometimes? Yeah, sure he does. But even through he might offends some liberal pieties
and say some outrageous things he at least tries to be an equal opportunity offender.
All of that said, Maher is brilliant with
W., you'd think, would be heaven's gift to comics and Maher treats him with the respect he is due.
But I think where Maher really shines in
this special is not with his political humor but with his wry
observations about men and women. Politically incorrect? Yes, but too true.
It's hard to review jokes without giving
away the punch line, so catch the show for yourself when HBO airs it.
For my money, his stand-up is far more original then the prattle from the usual suspects on his HBO Real Time show.

You've heard about Israel's "security fence?"

For some reason, our lying media wants you to think Israel is

this "fence" is actually a steel and concrete wall that's 25 feet high!

Why don't they show the 25-foot high cement wall instead of the chicken-wire crap?
Letter to the Editor
We want Full Disclosure
It now appears the government of Saudi Arabia,
not Iraq, was behind the 9-11 attack. According to an article
in the LA Times, people who have read the 28 pages that were blacked out are saying that "the Saudi government
that not only provided significant money and aid to the suicide hijackers but also allowed potentially hundreds of
millions of dollars to flow to al-Qaida and other terrorist groups through suspect charities and other fronts."
The sources quoted say there was "direct
involvement of senior (Saudi) government officials in a coordinated
and methodical way directly to the hijackers, as well as very direct, very specific links that cannot be passed off
as rogue, isolated or coincidental."
If Saudi Arabia was behind this then the
people of America have a right to know. We can not allow the Bush
administration to conceal the identities of the people what are truly behind the worst terrorist act in the history
of America.If we don't find out what happened - then how can we prevent a 9-11 from happening again?
I call on everyone to demand full disclosure. We have a right to know.

When it turned out that Iraq had no WMD as Bush guaranteed, they
the reason they invaded to "we did it to save the poor Iraqi people from an evil tyrant."
Well you know what, America is the only western country that executes
In that regard, we're just like Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia and the other 'savage states."
As Texas governor, Bush enjoyed killing people.
When asked why he killed a man every two weeks, Bush would
smirk and giggle and say,
"It's the law of the land," which is another way of saying, "That's how we do stuff here."
What of some foreign superpower was run by a man of color.
What if this foreign superpower
didn't like the way Bush giggled when he executed people? What if this foreign superpower decided
it would invade the United States to save the poor American blacks from Bush's giggling murder spree?
You can bet Bush would hire James Baker to say, "They
have no right to invade us this way!
We are a sovereign nation. They have no right to imposing their way of life on us,"
but that plea didn't work for Saddam, did it?
Besides Tony Blair, the entire globe begged Bush not to fuck this up, but he did it, anyway.
The point I'm trying to get to is this:
In the Middle East - murderous tyrants have ruled by force for centuries. When the civilized Europeans
look at America, especially Texas, they wonder how such an advanced society can be such barbarians
that we still execute people convicted of serious crimes. But since Europe doesn't have the guns to stop us,
all they can do is sigh and look away.
...which is possibly what we should have done with Saddam.
What we've done is executed the father of a family with 20 million
children. All of Iraq is now the
responsibility of the American military. They said Clinton stretched the military too thin, and now the
Unelected Idiot is spreading the military thinner than gold leaf on a birthday cake.
Oh God, what did we do to offend you
that you would send the plague of this murdering monster?
You have two minutes to rant away.
I have been thinking about this for the last few weeks Bart, and... (drum roll)...
I believe that Texas is winnable for the
Democratic presidential candidate in 2004.
No, hear me out.
Yes, I had a few shots of Chinaco,
but hear me out. The people of Texas are utterly fed up
with Republican Governor Perry and the strongarm tactics of Tom Delay's redistricting shenanigans.
The Killer D's, both House and Senate (currently holed up in a hotel in Albuquerque), have become
authentic folk heroes in Texas. The majority of Texas' representatives in DC are Democrats.
I'm not saying Dean is gonna do it, I'm
just saying it's do-able. I am from Austin and many broke
and pissed Texans are paying for the failed policies of Bush and Perry, and there's something about
the crookedness of this whole redistricting fandango that DOES NOT SIT WELL with the Texas mindset.
An organized, concerted effort could take Bush in his own home state.
You heard it here first, people - Texas is winnable for the Democrats.
