Fox Whore News is suing Al Franken for trademark infringement over the phrase "fair and balanced"
on the cover of his upcoming book, saying it has been "a signature slogan" of the network since 1996.
According to court papers, Fox is seeking
a temporary or permanent injunction against Franken and
Penguin Books to stop them using the phrase in connection with the book to be published next month.
The title of liberal satirist Franken's
new book is "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them."
At the bottom of the planned cover is the tag line, "A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right."
Fox claims the use of the phrase is intended to confuse the public and boost book sales.
This is such

than I can own, "Have a nice day."

U.S. Fines Woman for Being 'Human Shield'
A retired schoolteacher who went to Iraq to serve as a "human shield" against the U.S. invasion
is facing thousands of dollars in U.S. government fines, which she is refusing to pay.
The Treasury Department told Faith Fippinger
that she broke the law by crossing the Iraqi border
before the war. Her travel to Iraq violated U.S. sanctions that prohibited American citizens from
engaging in "virtually all direct or indirect commercial, financial or trade transactions with Iraq."
The nerve of these bastards!
Cheney did $23M worth of business with Saddam to build up his war-making capability
and they have the nerve to fine this woman for merely crossing the border?
...and the only reason they're brazen enough
to call the kettle black is because they know
the press won't report what Cheney did and the Democrats are too scared to mention it.
We went to war with Saddam for gassing his own people, but Saddam
did that BEFORE Cheney
did all this business with him, proving that the BFEE will do business with "Hitler" if they can make
a nice profit doing it. With this gang of thugs, it's always about gaining power and making money.

Subject: your addled brain comments on Cuba
I want you to answer the following questions:
1. Have you ever been to Cuba?
No, as stated in the story that angered you.
I've also never been to Germany. Should I not have an opinion
on the murder of six million Jews by Prescott Bush's partner in crime?
2. Have you studied the history of Cuba
No, but I'm old, I've read newspapers for 40 years and I have
a decent memory...
3. Where did you get your information to support the following statements:
Cuba is a prison and Fidel,( meaning Castro,
unless you know him personally)
keeps people there at gun point.
My comments on Cuba are the generally-accepted beliefs of most
It's a fact that hundreds or thousands of Cubans risk death every year to ride
a closet door over 90 miles of shark-infested waters to get away from Cuba.
Seems to me that all your arguments regarding
Cuba have been fed or mainlined to you
by the propaganda machine that keeps this country ignorant about foreign policy and
about all their fuckups.
True, my comments on Cuba are the generally-accepted beliefs of
Are you saying those people riding doors are actors, hired by our government?
The US condemned Cuba to poverty and misery
by slapping an embargo on them
40 years ago. Now what does this say about your country Clive Livermore,
My name is Bart, not sure who Clive Livermore is...
BTW, Javier disagrees with you. (He's from there, been back to visit 6 times)
He says Cuba is a nice place where most people are happy.
it's the same excrement all over again,
they also slapped Iraq with an embargo.
Please I urge to educate yourself on an issue such as Cuba, before you pass such
judgements as you have done. Further I urge to visit Cuba not to accept what you
hear as Gospel. One thing an education teaches you if nothing else is not to open
your trap indiscriminatedly without having a buffer to support your statements.
I have opinions.
I publish them on the Internet.
Sometimes I'm right, sometimes a reader corrects me.
You and I and Javier have different opinions about Cuba, but notice I had the
good manners to not ask you to shut "your trap" for having some of your own.
Some factions in this country operate by
waging war and revenge against those who
want self determination. Cuba is the prime example of that flaw in the US government
and perhaps its culture.
This argument started when I said we should change our position
on Cuba, remember?
When you travel the world and get to really
know the people of other countries...when they
trust you they open up to you, incrdibly a large majority of them agree on one point
"The Americans are backstabbers"
When *I* travel the world, I
end up in jail.
I think I'll do my traveling thru books or the Internet from now on.
And yes, our reputation isn't great around the world, especially lately.
They arrive at this conclusion through their
observation of US dealings.
Now with the Iraq assault there's no doubt.
You can publish my email, but don't take revenge on me for disagreeing
with you and publish my name and email, you did that once...

Arnold grabby-hands assaults a Brit talk show host
"Get your hands off me - I'm scared."
Oversexed Arnold Schwarzenegger Gets A handful Of British Talk Hosts!
During his promotional visit to Britain this week Arnold Schwarzenegger groped
Denise Van Outen on the Big Breakfast and behaved in a similarly oversexed and over here fashion
with a clearly panicked Melanie Sykes on ITV's Celebrity. The Sun in England newspaper reports
that Sykes was chatting with Arnold when, as cameras rolled, he grabbed her around the waist.
She pushed his hand away, saying: "Get your hands off me - I'm scared."
Did I hear this right?
CNN said the Callie-fornia ballot has two parts:
Part One - Gray Davis - stay or go?
Part Two - Who should take his place?
55 minutes into Wolf the Whore's Sunday show, they said the next
governor might be elected with just ten percent of the vote.
That means Larry Flynt could win.
He's probably got more money than Musclehead.

Another wrinkle oin the illegal davis recall:
Part One - Gray Davis - stay or go?
Part Two - Who should take his place?
What if Davis resigns before the election?
The ballot doesn't say, "Should the sitting
It says, "Should Davis go?"
If Davis resigns and that Bustamonte guy
Parts One and Two become moot, according to know-it-alls on MSGOP.
Those nutty Republicans are going to spend $60M on an election that won't change anything?
Mark Geragos has hired, I presume with his
own money, top forensic scientist Henry Lee
to examine the remains of Laci Peterson in an attempt to prove his client is innocent.
Is there a precedent for this? An attorney spending his own money on a client?
Geragos seems to know Peterson is innocent. Peterson
faces the death penalty,
so he's got every reason to lie and tell Geragos that he's innocent.
But what does Geragos see in this case that the cops don't?
Or maybe he sees what the cops saw but the cops refuse to recognize it.
In the old Perry Mason show, he'd look a potential client in the
eye and say,
"Did you commit this murder?" and then watch for a reaction.
Could Geragos have done the same thing?
Does he feel that Peterson is innocent?
Or is he spending his money on science and evidence?

Secondly, I lost her agent's phone number - do you have that on your Rolodex?

Subject: California fiasco
I'm an occasional reader, and love the site.
At least two times since Sunday, I heard the
Californian Republican Chair and/or Arnold's campaign advisor mention how Davis
squandered a $10 million budget surplus into a $35 million deficit. This seems to be
their biggest gun against Davis.
I wonder how they can justify using it against
Davis, but somehow dismiss that
same criticism against their Emperor Buba Bush?
Dave, they get away with that because the Democrats don't have
and they can't find the courage to mention the obvious.
If *I* ran the DNC, I'd initiate a recall against President
Pinhead and use the exact same
language they're using against Davis - but Democrats can't think and they're very, very scared
that Mr Rove might not like their doing that, so they cower in the corner and whimper, instead.

Scott Peterson case on Larry King.
We accidentally rented two Colin Farrell movies and Knockaround Guys.
Phone Booth was well done.
It was my first Colin Farrell movie, besides that horrid Tom Cruise Minority Report,
and I was surprised such a pretty boy could act that well. I thought he did a great job.
He's Tom Cruise, but better-looking, younger and with acting skills.
Also, Forrest Whitaker (the main cop) is one of my favorite actors.
If you buy the premise of the phone booth movie, he really was
in a fix.
At any second, Jack could kill his wife or girlfriend - he was truly stuck.
But I thought the ending was bogus. There was no logical
reason for the doctor to give
anyone a shot that would cause hallucinations, and Jack couldn't possibly have known that.
Knockaround Guys was sold as Goodfellas Knockoff.
I had high hopes, but this was Panic Room all over again.
Every decision anyone could possibly make was made wrong on purpose.
You know you have
a crap movie when the only way to hold the story together is to have each character do everything
exactly the opposite of what the person watching the movie would do.
They give $500,000 to a scared rabbit, then they can't believe
it when he panics and loses it.
Suddenly, "Matty" finds himself in Michael Corleone's position:
The only way his father can live is if he killes the crooked cop and takes back the money.
He assembles a small gang and visits the crooked sheriff who has
his loot. Instead of going in blazing
(remember - it's life and death for Dad) he politely asks the crook to please give back the money.
The sheriff laughs and kicks his stupid ass while the deputy holds a shotgun on his gang.
Later, John Malkovich shoots Matty's second-best friend in
front of Matty AND the sheriff.
There was no reason to murder anyone with the crooked sheriff standing there. Once the first shot
was fired, everyone was forced to shoot and seven gunmen shooting at once is always trouble.
Plus, this was before they found out if the sheriff was
stupid enough to bring the money to an ambush
that the sheriff, himself, had set up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Whenever I plan to murder four mobsters, I leave the money at home.
If your intent is to kill the mob guys, why bring the money?
Malko didn't know if the money was there when the shooting started.
He risked the half-mil for no reason just like he shot Matty's friend for no reason.
Maybe the moral of the story is "Mob guys are stupid," but how
do you get to be
60 years old as a higher-up in the New York mob if you're that stupid?
This is another example of why Hollywood should hire me. You have
a $40M movie, why not
give Bart a pre-release copy and give me $1000 for every plot hole I find thru which even
Joe Hazleton on Black Russians could pilot the Exxon Valdez?
My arm fire has come back - like totally...
Who can keep track of time, ...but maybe 3 weeks ago, I got the
shot of death.
A week ago it wore off, we're taking the pain like a man, or at least like half a man.
I went to Doc Shariff and asked him how serious it was.
I mean, I've already been to the pass-out, needles-slicing-the-pain stage of treatment,
and now we're going to entertain other options?
He said it was so bad, I might have to have my arm amputated.
I refused to accept that, so I went to another doc to get a second opinion.
Dr. Ashante, (Can we get some American doctors?)
said the same thing.
He said my best bet was to have my right arm amputated like Little Joe on Bonanza.
Broken, I visted a third Doctor, Dr. Allah-Shah-Al-Abazz Ali.
At least I could understand his English...
He basically said I had nothing to worry about.
I offered him a shot of Chinaco Anejo and I tried to kiss him on the lips.
He pulled away from my embrace and said,
"Don't worry. In a few weeks, the son of a bitch will fall off all by itself..."
KKBJ-AM Talk Radio 1360 discovered the union-owned network's liberal programming on a stormy night
back in June when one of the Minnesota talk station's satellite receivers died. To avoid dead air, the station
flipped to the program stream coming down on a second satellite receiver, tuned in to i.e. America Radio
Network's 9 pm-midnight host, Mike Malloy. Malloy was in fine form, ranting about the "Bush crime family."
The next day, KKBJ's Chuck Sebastian got
some feedback from listeners who had just heard their first bit
of liberal programming on a station that otherwise carries mostly right-wingers. "One guy said that it was
a breath of fresh air to finally get somebody who knows what he's talking about," Sebastian said.
He added, "Another said it was 'nice to hear somebody with an opinion the opposite of Michael
Savage's ranting and raving.'"
"That's not fair - a lefty on the radio?"
Subject: Lets roll flight
I think the guy who said "Let's roll," was
Todd beamer. He was hailed as a hero.
There was also an incredibly well trained expert in the martial arts aboard that flight.
I believe his name was Jeremy Glick.
Mr Glick was about six foot seven and had the ability to kill a man with one blow.
Based on what I saw on the news, I believe he may have been a gay man.
I think that's all correct.
Although its theory, I suspect that Glick
handily killed the terrorists and was ready to
receive orders to try to pilot that plane. Its a shame, but I think our air force shot it.
Im not an expert on debris fields, but have you ever heard of one that involved so
many pieces and so little plane actually impacting with the ground?
C, no telling about the debris field. I mean, who would we ask
about that? Bush's NTSB?
Former Air Force Intelligent Officers? Bush's CIA? Bush's FBI?
I saw a 30-second interview with Glick's Dad on CBS. He
said the feds allowed the families to hear
the last few minutes on the cockpit flight recorder. He said after hearing a lot of commotion and
Arabic shouting (don't write) he heard his son do that exhale/grunt thing karate boys do before they strike.
Then he said he heard a snap and a man with a crushed windpipe trying to breathe.
I think if the hijackers saw Glick go thru Hadji #1 like warm
they would then go to Plan B and crash early so as not to be taken alive.
Sure, it's possible that plane was shot down.

by Schwarzenegger for sex?
by Jackson Thoreau
A woman - a family member of this source - worked behind the scenes on a weekend shoot in one of
Schwarzenegger’s movie’s years ago. He harassed this woman for two days about having sex with him
in his movie trailer, my source says.
She tried to politely say no, but Schwarzenegger
kept persisting, insisting she come to his trailer during a break.
The woman tried to joke it off, saying at one point, "But Arnold, what about Maria?" He laughed and said,
"My driver is very discreet."

Subject: Feedback on the radio
Was just catching up on the last couple of pages, and saw you're asking if
it's worth doing the transcripts. Are you putting the entire show on the site?
No, only about 1/3 of each segment and, so far, just shows 9 and
8, I think.
It seems to me that people can now just
put a Garbage CD on and read the
radio show transcript and get the same effect for free.
Damn, that's what I do when I'm writing!!

"On Monday, October 24, the news from Beirut
became even more sickening, in all, 241
marines had died
as they slept, resting from the duties of trying to keep peace in Lebanon. Two miles away, and two minutes
after the blast at the airport, fifty-eight French soldiers, also members of the multinational force, had been
killed by a second car bomb. The evidence indicated that both suicide vehicles were driven by radical Shiite
fundamentalists suicidally bent on the pursuit of martyrdom. They were members of the same group responsible
for the barbarous bombing of our embassy in Beirut the previous April, a group whose religious leaders promised
instant entry to Paradise for killing an enemy of Iran's theocracy. Nancy and I were in a state of grief, made
almost speechless by the magnitude of the loss"

But 60 days later, a bad actor is suddenly the answer to serious
