"I would call the French scumbags but that
would be a disservice to bags filled with scum..."
-- scumbag Dennis Miller at Andre Agassi's Grand Slam charity event for Children Attribution
Can you believe this sick bastard?
At a children's charity event, he goes for a cheap, tacky and unfunny political swipe?
Elton John, the star of the event got him back.
"When people say, `Why do they hate us so much?
Why do they hate us so much?' Dennis Miller."
Dennis Miller alligned himself with a sick-minded
who just got caught faking a war that killed over 300 brave Americans.
Isn't it funny when someone backs the wrong horse and gets what they deserve?
The dollar sank to its lowest level since Nov. 2000 before firming slightly to 109.93 yen per dollar,
down from 111 on Monday. Meanwhile, the euro hit a three-month high against the dollar, trading as
high as $1.1813, not far off its record level of $1.1933 in late May. And Canada's dollar, the loonie,
hit a seven-year high against the greenback.
Even surging U.S. economic growth and, now,
hints of a jobs recovery haven't been able to stem
the tide against the dollar.
We need to impeach the Illegal Fraud while we still have a country left to defend.
"Asked by a reporter how confident he was that the F.B.I. would determine who disclosed the identity of the officer,
the president responded by asking the reporter how many times he had exposed a source or had seen a source exposed.
"Probably none," Mr. Bush said in answer to his
own question. "I mean, this is a town full of people who like to leak information.
And I don't know if we're going to find out the senior administration official."
the bouncing White House ball
by Molly Ivins
Two weeks ago, President Bush said, "There's no question that Saddam had al Qaeda ties."
But he also said two weeks ago, "We've had no evidence that Saddam was involved with 9-11."
That helpful clarification came after Cheney
was asked on Meet the Press why he thought
70 percent of Americans believe that Saddam was behind Sept. 11.
"It's not surprising that people make that connection," said the veep.
Back in 2001, Cheney had said it was "pretty
well confirmed" that Iraq and the Sept. 11 hijackers
had coordinated. But most recently he said he didn't know if Saddam was connected to Sept. 11.

Last night, CNN thought it would be keen to send Candy Crowley
(R-Butterqueen) to cover
the Gray Davis victory party. Crowley hates Democrats with every pound she carries.
Why did they send a known Demo-hater to give us "fair & balanced"
coverage of this event?
Why couldn't CNN find somebody who only hates Democrats 80 percent, instead of 100%

I can't believe what I'm reading. A day
after Ahnuld gets into office in what has to be California's
biggest practical joke to the United States, I find out that Senator Hatch and the Republican party
wants to change the rules once again, and allow non-native Americans to run for President! This is incredible!
Basically, this is the Republicans saying
"We don't have anybody with a career record that can match General Clark's,
so we're going to pitch for the popular movie star who plays heroes on the big screen so that we can steal elections from
guys like Clark who actually WERE heroes in real life."
Like in the past several major elections, the Republicans are changing the rules of the game to get their guy in office.
Why don't liberals FIGHT? Why aren't hordes
of people storming the White House and demanding change?
Why has there been no new Boston Tea Party? No uprising? Nothing!
Wilder, the Democrats are scared to death
Mr Rove might not approve of a fight.
The Democrats won't even fight to keep their seats they hold in Washington.
Gray Davis refused to fight in California - why didn't he blame Enron for the huge deficits?
Why didn't he demand a one-on-one debate with Musclehead, and call him chicken if he refused?
The GOP and the B.F.E.E. will continue
to roll over them until they say "Stop."
Until our side decides that we want to win, we're going to keep losing.
"When a Mexican runner won the New York City
marathon, Rush said it was because quote,
'an immigration agent chased him for the last ten miles. Edgy, controversial, brilliant.
What a way to shake up intelligent sports commentary. Hitler would have killed in talk radio.
He was edgy, too. Disney, who owns ESPN, should take a bow."
--Nancy Giles, Limbaugh as Hitlerian Racist
"Mrs. Wilson is one of those rare women who
was a superspy. She risked her own life by going overseas
without official protection, no diplomatic immunity. If she got arrested, she would be shot as a spy. And she
had a cover company, a secret cover the CIA set up. It looks like a normal business, and, from that business,
is able to travel the world and recruit brave people around the world that were willing to help us hunt for WMDs.
And a columnist exposed not only her name, but even after knowing that CIA didnít want her name disclosed,
even after being told that she was an operative, even after knowing she is the rarest operative, a NOC, Robert
Novak then publishes the name of her cover business. Every intelligence agency in the world is tracing all the
mail theyíve ever had with her, all the company connections. I hope that none of her agents are in countries like
North Korea or Iran, because those people are going to be tortured to find out, were you ever an agent for
Mrs. Wilson? What was your connection with this company she had? Now, when Novak released both of those
items, he may have unwittingly exposed himself to federal criminal prosecution.

See Rush for all your Hilbilly Heroin needs.
I'm not very good at writing this stuff,
and I'm still swooning a little too much to give his appearance justice,
but he simply OOZES charm and charisma, much as I'd imagine Clinton does in person. My friend and I
were discussing how hard it must be to put that much energy out to hundreds and thousands of people daily.
but he definitely puts it out there.
he didn't say a thing wrong. not one. he
talked a lot about education, job creation, use of force only as a last
his business and political experience, why he joined the race, the essence of democracy which he calls the new patriotism,
the right to disagree/dissent, foreign policy, the economy, civil rights, human rights, everything. he even threw in some
comments about oklahoma v. arkansas football for the hardcore OU fans. :) he took questions and answered them all
very articulately and is thinking on his feet.
i was particularly glad to hear his answer
to the question "how will we know our votes are counted correctly?"
he mentioned charlie rangel heading up the voter-verifiable paper trail issue on electronic voting machines.
this to me was a sign that he is sincere about his passion for politics, as many of the candidates out there don't
even have this very complicated issue on their radar screen, much less in tune with those who have the answer
for how to solve it.
I made sure I reminded a few people in the
campaign to make sure that oklahoma volunteers aren't forgotten as
we tend to never get calls back. (i don't know if that's been your experience, but i find it nearly impossible to get
any campaign to make use of my offer to do door-to-door, man phone banks, etc. which is clearly just insane).
he's got it people. and he's couching it
all in "big tent" terminology trying to bring america together.
the only thing he said i disagreed with is that country is more important than party. :)
in a nutshell, I'm in LUV and Clark's my new boyfriend.

"Rush is a national treasure..."
The Whore Street Journal Seduced by Sleazy Schwarzenegger
"What can The Wall Street Journal be thinking? On Friday, Oct. 3, The Journalís editorial page applauded Arnold
for his "candor" in admitting some truth to the accusations by several women that he had touched them sexually
without their consent. The paper minimized the allegations by saying that all that was proven was that the actor
"can be a boor" and that his statements were "a welcome contrast to the usual political stonewalling or denials."
Sounding like a bunch of 1950ís-era martini-guzzlers, the editors of The Journal gave Mr. Schwarzenegger a
figurative big slap on the back and rewarded him because he did not "deny, dissemble or wag his finger into a
camera. The owners and editors of The Wall Street Journal should be ashamed of themselves."

Rush crush, but too late
Tom Jackson, who told two ESPN executives he would quit "Countdown" if Limbaugh remained on the show,
does not agree with the radio talk show host who, on his Friday program, referred to Jackson as a "friend."
"Rush Limbaugh is known for the divisive nature of his rhetoric. He creates controversy," Jackson said.
"And what he said Sunday is the same type of thing
he has said on radio for years. A player in this league,
who has a young son, called me this week. His son now wants to know if it's all right for a black to play quarterback.
That's why he's called the "vulgar Pigboy."

REST OF THE WORLD: Hey, donít get me wrong, Miller and I used to be pretty tight. I watched his show
on Fox all the time. And he was the only reason I used to watch Saturday Night Live. He was a riot back then.
ME: So, what happened between you two?
REST OF THE WORLD: Well, he stopped
being funny and became flat out mean-spirited. For some reason,
when Bill got that hummer from Lewinksi, well Miller blamed every problem on the planet on him, and just couldnít get over it.

Radio show feedback
1) The clip-your response-clip-your response
format works really well.
Most of us have short attention spans, so it's best to deconstruct Rush (or whoever) sentence by sentence.
2) Your voice sounds great--not that it was bad before, but whatever you did equipment-wise really worked.
3) As for the "more shows" question, I'd rather have fewer, higher-quality shows than something quantity-driven.
4) I guess just keep in mind that we're paying to hear what you think, and we're doing that because we get a kick out of you.
5) I think it would be a nice idea for you to get COMPLETELY shit-faced and do a show.
1. Those are fun to do.
2. Credit Tommy Mack, and my finding the front of the microphone
3. Me, too.
5. That could happen.

PIPA found that 48 percent of the public believe US troops found evidence of close pre-war links
between Iraq and al-Qaeda; 22 percent thought troops found WMD in Iraq; and 25 percent believed
that world public opinion favored Washington's going to war with Iraq. All three are misperceptions.

In a news conference Tuesday, Dr. Derek Duke confirmed that since Sunday afternoon,
Horn has been "communicating with us and is responding nicely."
The neurosurgeon said the prognosis was
not good when Horn arrived at the hospital late on his 59th birthday.
"Mr. Horn's injury was extremely severe, and it is all but miraculous that he is alive at this time," Duke said Tuesday.
"While we are quite pleased with his progress, Mr. Horn is in critical condition, and it will be quite some time
before the extent of his recovery is known," Duke said.
On Tuesday, S&R manager Bernie Yuman reiterated that there are no plans to destroy Montecore.
"His future is bright," Yuman said. "A tiger is a tiger. We understand."
