"If there was ever a case that demanded a special counsel, this is it."
   -- Chuck Schumer, talking about "Revenge-gate."

 Bush: We'll cooperate with Revenge-gate Probe

 Click  Here

 An administration official told The Washington Post on Saturday that two White House officials
 leaked the information to selected journalists to discredit Wilson. The leak could constitute a federal crime,
 and intelligence officials said it might have endangered confidential sources who had aided the operative
 throughout her career.  CIA Director Tenet has asked Justice to investigate how the leak occurred.

 Condi Rice said on "Fox News Sunday" that she knew "nothing of any such White House effort to
 reveal any of this, and it certainly would not be the way that the president would expect his White House to operate."

 Trust me - The Monkey has all the deniablity in the universe.
 He doesn't know nothing about nothing, and I could testify to that.

 Maybe Bush will show some of that blind loyalty and refuse to cut Rove loose.
 Remember - it's never the crime, it's the coverup that brings down a president.


“Statistically speaking, U.S. soldiers have less of a chance of dying from all causes in Iraq
  than citizens have of being murdered in California which is roughly the same geographical size.”
     --Brit Hume, telling the families of the dead to knock it off and bow to the Unelected Bastard

 Iraq, 9/11 Still Linked By Cheney 
  Could somebody please tell the 'president' what he thinks?

  Click  Here

 In making the case for war against Iraq, Cheney has continued to suggest that an Iraqi intelligence
 agent met with a Sept. 11, 2001, hijacker five months before the attacks, even as the story was falling
 apart under scrutiny by the FBI, CIA and the foreign government that first made the allegation.

 The alleged meeting in Prague between Atta and Iraqi Samir al-Ani was the single thread the administration
 has pointed to that might tie Iraq to the attacks. But as the Czech government distanced itself from its initial
 assertion and American investigators determined Atta was probably in the United States at the time of the
 meeting, other administration officials dropped the incident from their public statements about Iraq.

 Not Cheney, who was the administration's most vociferous advocate for going to war with Iraq.

 So, Pinhead, Rummy and Condi retract the Iraqi link, but Cheney says it's still solid.
 Just think what the paid-for, American whore press would to to a Democratic administration
 that couldn't decide why they ginned up a phoney war that killed over 300 brave Americans.

 If Clinton had been guilty of one of the 25, they would have impeached him again.
 But dewmocrats don't believe in fighting - not even for self-preservation, so expect
 Bush and his gang to keep on keepin on until the GOP tells them, "You've had a good run..."

 Violence surges in Iraq as furor spreads over war intelligence

  Click  Here

 Violence raged in Iraq with mounting casualties amid growing signs that Washington Bush was
 ill-prepared to manage the occupation of the country in the wake of its military victory over Saddam.

 As another US soldier was killed in Fallujah, an Iraqi official working on the technicalities of drafting
 the country's new constitution escaped an assassination attempt that killed his bodyguard.

 The United States and Britain meanwhile continued to protest that their invasion of Iraq was fully justified,
 with more US troops called for duty there, despite mounting public opposition to their continued presence
 amid the security turmoil in the war-ravaged country.

 Great idea!
 Let's send hundreds of thousands of troops into this Bush-created hellhole.
 Better yet, let's reinstate the draft and lose hundreds of thousands more lives over there.

 As long as the Unelected Pinhead gets to steal that oil...

 Subject: Rush on ESPN

 Hey Bart did you catch Rush finally letting out his racist vomit on NFL Countdown?
 The topic was on Donovan Mcnabb and the two game slump he's been in and when
 Rush was giving his opinion he said something to the effect that "He's really not that good.
 He's only being hyped because the NFL is so desperate for a good black quarterback".

 This is unacceptable commentary to be coming from a sports show and
 I think it's time we start a campaign to let ESPN know we won't be watching
 as long as they are employing this racist asshole!


 Mike, they knew Rush was a racist asshole when they hired him.
 Seems like Rush would've been a better hockey commentator,
 as there are so few (if any) blacks skating on professional ice.

 But the NFL is full of "those  people - those Jesse Jackson types..."

 Bill Bennett on CBS's 'Las Vegas'

 Did you see what they did to Bill Bennett (R-BetterThanYou) on last night's "Las Vegas?"
 Only Osama and R Kelly could know how Bill Bennett feels today.

"Las Vegas" did a story about a morality-crusading, sniveling, blowhard punk to whom the casino had
 to provide a dozen scanty-clads for him to grope and fondle on his way to his private luxury suite to gamble.

 They portrayed Bill Bennett as a hard-drinking, scheming, conniving, back-stabbing whore who made passes
 at women while watching his TV image rail against "immoral liberals."  When a tabloid reporter got a whiff
 that Bill Bennett might be in the house, he snuck in a camera to get some proof so Bennett told casino security
 to make him disappear, as in "murder him."

 They really did a job on Bennett, and this is an outrage....or it would be if he didn't deserve it.

 That smug bastard, screaming from channel to channel all thru 1998, talking about Bill Clinton being
 the "out-of-control, lust-maniac," when Bennett can't copntrol his smoking, drinking and gambling.

 Hussein link was a sales job
   by Helen Thomas,  who uses "sales" for "hand"

  Click  Here

 Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the US, according to Bush.
 But don't blame Americans for thinking otherwise.

 When reporters asked him last week, Bush said: ``We've had no evidence that Saddam was involved with 9-11.''


 In an instant, the president knocked the stuffing from one of his stated reasons for leading us to war against Iraq.
 Earlier casualties in the administration's sell-the-war campaign were Hussein's WMDs (still missing despite five
 months of searching by U.S. troops) and Iraq's nuclear arsenal (cancelled out earlier this month by Cheney.)

  Let's win one for The Chicks
 Deny Renewal of Clear Channel's License
  Goebbels would be proud of Clear Channel Communications

  Click  Here

"Clear Channel and its subsidiaries have violated the law on 36 separate occasions over
 the last three years, demonstrating its poor character," said Donahue. "Clear Channel is
 not qualified to hold a broadcast license under the FCC's own character rules," he added.

"The FCC has held that licensees which exhibit a pattern of illegal conduct shall be denied
 broadcasting on the public's airwaves because such licensees cannot be considered truthful
 or reliable in complying with the Communications Act of 1934 or FCC regulations," said Donahue.

 Did Clear Channel go after the Dixie Chicks for the money?
 Did they do it to make nice with Smirk, which would mean more money?
 Did they do it just to be sons of bitches?

 Remember all those "Let's have a BIG-ass war," rallies Clear Channel hosted?
 They would use their almost-monopoly propaganda machines to rally the duped public,
 then lie about the crowd size and then label the smart people, "liberal Saddam appeasers."

 They tied themselves to Bush like a tar-baby, and look where Bush is now.

 It felt good to read that headline last week,
"Chicks leave Country music for Rock & roll."

 They said they did it because, except for a lone mention from Merle Haggert,
 none of those flag-waving, racist yahoos stood by their "friends," the Dixie Chicks.

 Dixie Chicks?

 Don't they need a new name?

 Subject: al Qaeda vs. Musharraf

"Aljazeera has aired an audiotape of Usama bin Ladin's spokesman
 calling on Pakistanis to overthrow President Pervez Musharraf."


 Right, start Muslim activism in Pakistan.
 See if the Muslim fundamentalists can overthrow Musharraf (who is a not
 very nice dictator), and replace it with Muslim fundamentalism.

 And have control of Pakistan's nuclear weapons and missles to deliver them.

 Thanks *so* very much, Georgie boy,

 Voting machines taking heat

  Click  Here

 ...there is a growing contingent who say the electronic system is ripe for corruption or malfunction.

 That fear was seeded in the 2002 primary, when thousands of Broward and Miami-Dade voters
 experienced errors with their voting machines, or had their votes ignored by a computer.

 Broward County Commissioner John Rodstrom said that when his wife went to the polls in 2002,
 she pressed the screen to vote for one candidate, and the machine showed she was voting for another.
 That was a common problem in Broward.

 In Dade, computer tallies did not count votes from several precincts.
 A backup check of the computerized system revealed the mistakes.

"We're learning there are some glitches with the system. Add that to the fact that someone could
 hack into it, and that's a problem," Rodstrom said. "Politicians are hearing these horror stories and
 saying, 'Gee, we need to rethink this.' "

 Sometimes the rest of the country gets a story a year or two after we got it.
 We knew about Diebold over a year ago, right?
 We knew about that Revenge-gate way back in mid-July.
 We knew Newt had a hooker over a year before the press stopped covering for him.

 If only America had a press that would tell the truth.

 and Bob Barr is not Black (although he possibly has some African ancestry by his looks), so I'm kinda lost
 as to your intention - could you clarify the joke that I don't seem to be getting?


 Cris, over the years, it has been suggested by non-comedians that Barr is, indeed, black.
 I believe some of his ancestors were African American, so he tries to pass.

 To:  Tim Russert

 Subject: Dr. Rice

 Good Lord, Tim, how embarrassing and embarrassed are you?
 How can you let Condi just sit there, the way you let Cheney sit there, and lie that boldly?

 Condi says, "That's not the way the President runs his White House"???

 This White House?

 This White House has used such strong arm tactics that Jeffords left the GOP because of the bullying?
 This White House that tried to strong arm Europe and when that failed hinted--well, flat out said
 --that France and Germany would be punished?

 Outing a CIA operative as punishment is completely in line with the behavior of this White House.
 Or haven't you been following the news?   I know you're only the Washington Bureau chief for a
 major network, so obviously, you don't know dick.    But come on!!!

 Condi has been on your show saying the administration knows everything about Iraq for a year, and
 since May, has been on your show repeatedly saying the administration didn't know anything about Iraq.

 She's been saying no one knew about using airplanes as weapons, even though she had been briefed on
 terrorists using airplanes as weapons;  she said no one ever said Hussein would have nuclear weapons
 within a year, even though she and Cheney, and Bush, and Powell, and Rumsfeld all said Hussein might
 have nuclear weapons within a year.

 Christ, she makes a different compelling and credible speech every freaking Sunday morning.
 Say it with me, Tim:  She's lied, and lied, and lied.

 For the love of all things American, will you do your job and finally say,
"Condi, you're just lying.  Your lying to my face, aren't you?"

 She is, you know.
 Call her on it, call any of them on it, before they cost this country
 any more in integrity, reputation, or billions and billions of dollars.

 After all, Tim, you were much harder on Clinton.
 And his penis didn't kill one single U.S. serviceman.

 By the way, has anyone in Houston heard anything more about that
 sexual harassment suit the Ford F-150 vacuum hose filed against Tom Delay?

"F-150's are hot!"

 I forget who said it, but someone recently suggested that Bush
 should not be faulted for posing like a whore before this lying banner...

"I won this war with my own two hands..."

 ...because the White House did not put the banner up.

 They said the banner was put up by the sailors, and Team Bush had nothing to do with it.

 I guess it was a "lucky coincidence" that the camera the Monkey was staring into
 was accidentally alligned with Bush's smirking face and that lying, coincidental banner?

 It's never Pinhead's fault - someone else always get blamed for George's blunders.

 Subject: "Siamese brothers"


 I have been an avid reader and supporter of Bartcop for the past 7 years,
 dating all the way back to Issue 50 or so.  But using the term "Siamese" was
 quite uncalled for, and really pisses me off.  So I am writing to tell you to "fuck-off",
 you and your politically incorrect piece of shit web site.

 How could you be so goddamn insensitive to use the term Siamese in the year 2003?
 Where have you been?  The term is "conjoined", not Siamese.
 We're not talking about some fucking cats, for Christ's sake.
 Wake the hell up man!

 So you just lost another reader, but I'm sure you don't care as long as you can get
 a laugh bashing another group that you secretly probably hate anyway.

 Have a nice day and nice life Mr. Bartcop.


 P.S.  I'm kidding.

 I admit, you had me going.  I've been getting a lot of that lately, mostly from the
 a "I was gonna donate, but now I ain't," types.   Plus, that  may've been the best joke in
 that bit, because Carville, Begala, Ivins, McAuliffe etc has no idea what a 'Bartcop' is.

 White House spokesman, Scott McClellan accidentally revealed something damaging to the President today:

"He wasn't involved in the Valerie Plame leak," White House press secretary Scott McClellan said of Karl Rove.
"The president knows he wasn't involved.… It's simply not true."

 ThePresident KNOWS that Karl Rove wasn't involved?

 Either he knows who DID do it, and it wasn't Rove, or he asked Rove, and Rove denied it directly.
 In which case, why is Bush ONLY asking Karl Rove?

 Or ...IS he only asking Karl Rove? And if he's asked other people, who are they, and what did they tell him?
 Of course, if he already knows who did it, then there's no reason to ask is there?

 Thinking back to the phone calls tipping the White House that Air Force One  was a target on 9/11,  using
 certain code phrases (like the code name of the  day, which is top secret and changes randomly) to prove
 they knew what they were talking about, it's possible that W was supposed to buy the farm that day as well.

 Eventually, the WH recanted that story, claiming (after William Safire challenged them to reveal what
 traitorous group in the government had targeted Bush) that they were mistaken.  Mostly, people take this
 to mean that the first story was a lie, to cover up W's apparent cowardice.  However, if it had been a lie,
 they would have stuck to it. I think the recantation was the lie, and that they had received such a warning.

"President Bill Clinton was impeached by a Republican-controlled Congress for lying about sex.
