1182 - Sheep-like senators
"Victory means exit strategy, and it's important
for the president
to explain to us what the exit strategy
is,' Bush said."
--Bush the smarter, Houston
Dick, what does "exit strategery" mean?
Deficit Hits record $374.2B
The federal deficit soared to $374.2 billion
in 2003, a record total that more than doubled
last year's red ink and looked like a prelude
to even gloomier numbers.
Because the shortfall marked an improvement
from a $455 billion projection the White House
made in July, Bush administration officials
cited it as evidence that their attempts to fortify the
weak economy were working.
"Today's budget numbers reinforce the indications
we have seen for some months now: that the
economy is well on the path to recovery,"
Treasury Secretary John Snow lied.
White House budget director Joshua Bolten
lied much the same but also conceded that worse
fiscal numbers were on the horizon, estimating
the gap for the new year "will likely exceed $500
billion even with the strengthening economy."
Bolten said spending restraint and policies aimed at
bolstering the economy can wrench the budget
onto a course to halve deficits by 2009.
I have an idea... Since they're not hiring,
why don't you stop borrowing billions to give
to the super rich?
Starts Digging for Dirt
The B.F.E.E. fights dirty, even for politics.
Operatives of the Bush/Cheney campaign identifying themselves
only as 'supporters of the President'
approached several local workmen to ask if they had done any
work at the Kerry/Heinz home. In one
case the Bush operative said," I understand they party a lot
there." In this case the workman said he
had never heard about anything wrong going on there [the house].
Asked what a lot of partying meant
the Bush operative mentioned drugs. Bb.c is very familiar with
the area, and is currently checking with
sources to find others who may have been approached.
"I have long believed that if the Bush crowd could not get the president
reelected on his merits of which
there are none, they would fall back on character assignation.
This isn't new. One of the Right's tactics
if their candidates are in trouble is to get what they call '5-10%
dirt votes' to win. It's not just presidential
races. If a GOP Senator or House member can't get enough votes
to win outright the 'dirt squad'
provides the margin with often made up dirt on the opponent."
Said Bob Beckel.

Fuels Calls for New Diana Probe
A letter reportedly written by Princess
Diana expressing fears that someone was plotting
to eliminate her by tampering with the
brakes of her car brought the painful story of her
death back to the front pages Monday and
prompted a call for a public inquiry.
Sure, it's unlikely, but then again, Chuck is the heir to the
throne. ...and like with the B.F.E.E.,
there's no way the Brit CIA could arrange a murder to further
their goals, right?
Subject: W quitting drinking
I read something about W flying a plane
with a friend. They were both drunk.
W almost crashed the plane during a landing.
He threw up all over the plane.
His actions were somewhat suicidal and even
homicidal (if the friend remained in the plane).
This was supposed to be the turning point.
I can't remember all the details; I read
this a long time ago.
Does this ring any bells?
Anne, yes it does.
The only thing I remember is the story was told by the pther
guy in the plane.
Anyone have a URL for this story?

Democracy Failed: The Warnings of History
There are many differences between Hitler and the Unelected
The 70th anniversary wasn't noticed in
the United States, and was barely reported in the corporate media.
But the Germans remembered well that fateful
day seventy years ago - February 27, 1933. They
commemorated the anniversary by joining
in demonstrations for peace that mobilized citizens all across the world.
It started when the government, in the midst
of a worldwide economic crisis, received reports of an imminent
terrorist attack. A foreign ideologue had
launched feeble attacks on a few famous buildings, but the media
largely ignored his relatively small efforts.
The intelligence services knew, however, that the odds were he
would eventually succeed.
But the warnings of investigators were ignored
at the highest levels, in part because the government was
distracted; the man who claimed to be the
nation's leader had not been elected by a majority vote and the
majority of citizens claimed he had no
right to the powers he coveted. He was a simpleton, some said,
a cartoon character of a man who saw things
in black-and-white terms and didn't have the intellect to
understand the subtleties of running a
nation in a complex and internationalist world.

year later, Senate is a different place without Wellstone
On Capitol Hill, the letters keep coming
for the late Sen. Paul Wellstone.
Jeffrey Levensaler, Wellstone's former office
manager and deputy chief of staff, opens them at his condo
after he leaves work. Unpaid bills. Correspondence
from the Department of Defense. Cards for the
senator's sons, David and Mark. Letters
trying to influence votes, including a recent inquiry asking why
Wellstone still wants to tax estates.
"Some of it stuns me, that people in Minneapolis,
Minnesota, are still sending Paul letters," Levensaler said.
Nearly one year after the Minnesota Democrat
died in a plane crash, Wellstone is hardly a forgotten man,
but the U.S. Senate is a different place,
for different reasons.

Bart: Imagine my surprise this morning,
when I got a phone call
from some guy named Brad from the Rush
This morning when I came to work an
hour early and was surfing to Bartcop
as I am want to do. Via the link
provided on your site, I sent an email with the following text.
"Do you really want a hypocritical drug addict
pushing your product. You can do better than that"
Rather tame, I'd say. Anyway, I was in our
Tuesday editorial meeting, when I get a phone call
from Brad Glicklick from the Rush Limbaugh
show. He basically threatened me with "I'm going
to tell your employer that you are using
the internet to send hateful email."
Me: Go right ahead. I'll put you on hold
so you can talk to him right now.
Amazingly, when my boss went to answer
the call, Brad had hung up.
We are small weekly, pro-union newspaper.
My boss hates Rush more than I do.
The point: They are filtering out the email
being sent to sponsors. And threatening anyone
who doesn't follow the partyline and dares
to send one from work.

Emperor Has No Clothes
We were told that we were threatened by
weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, but they have not been seen.
We were told that the throngs of Iraqi's
would welcome our troops with flowers, but no throngs or flowers appeared.
We were led to believe that Saddam Hussein
was connected to the attack on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon,
but no evidence has ever been produced.
We were told in 16 words that Saddam Hussein
tried to buy "yellow cake" from Africa for production of
nuclear weapons, but the story has turned
into empty air.
We were frightened with visions of mushroom
clouds, but they turned out to be only vapors of the mind.
We were told that major combat was over
but 101 [as of October 17] Americans have died in combat since
that proclamation from the deck of an aircraft
carrier by our very own Emperor in his new clothes.

Spending for Ex-Soldiers Not "Priority" Treatment
Two years ago, President Bush said, "Veterans
are a priority for this administration... and that priority
is reflected in my budget." But, a year
ago, when he had a chance to approve an emergency funding
bill that included $275 million for medical
care of veterans, he said, "We'll spend none of it."
Now the President's 2004 budget request
for the Veterans Administration will effectively cut spending
for its already-stretched health care system.
Because of increased medical costs at an above-inflation
rate of 4.7% and increased enrollment of
8%, the American Legion calculates that Bush's 2004 request
"comes $1.9 billion short of maintaining
an inadequate status quo."3
Subject: Limbaugh's sponsors
I took advantage of the link you posted,
and sent Rush Limbaugh's sponsors this message:
I don't understand why you wanted a hate-mongering,
mean-spirited, God-mocking winger pushing
your products in the first place.
Now that he's turned out to be a hypocritical drug addict as well,
maybe it's time to stop supporting his
brand of "entertainment" with your marketing budgets.
I never use any product advertised on the
Rush Limbaugh Show. I go out of my way to take my
business to their competitors. My
resolve to make sure that none of my consumer spending in
any way supports keeping LImbaugh on the
air has only become stronger as I have learned more
about who and what he really is.

Troubles Become a Liability
Dave Boyd, sipping a Busch Light in his
lawn chair as Rep. Jim Leach (R-Iowa) approached, was troubled.
As a production operator at an auto interiors
shop in Iowa City, he worried about the Bush administration's
bid to revamp the nation's overtime rules.
"I think it would cut into our income quite a
bit," Boyd said of the plan, which would make some middle-income
workers ineligible for overtime pay.
"I voted against it," replied Leach, who was attending
the town's annual Columbus Day parade. "The theory
of those who advocate it is that it gives
management more flexibility." But "lots of people would be affected
by it" negatively.
Until recently, few Republican lawmakers
would be so quick to distance themselves from President Bush.
But the president's approval ratings have
fallen sharply since April, the nation's job growth remains sluggish
and some Americans feel the nation is putting
too much money -- and not enough wise planning -- into Iraq.

Since the end of the Vietnam War, presidents
have worried that their military actions would lose support
once the public glimpsed the remains of
U.S. soldiers arriving at air bases in flag-draped caskets.
To this problem, the Bush administration
has found a simple solution: It has ended the public dissemination
of such images by banning news coverage
and photography of dead soldiers' homecomings on all military bases.
In March, on the eve of the Iraq war, a
directive arrived from the Pentagon at U.S. military bases.
"There will be no arrival ceremonies for, or
media coverage of, deceased military personnel returning to
or departing from Ramstein airbase or Dover
base, to include interim stops," the Defense Department said,
referring to the major ports for the returning

Why aren't federal DEA agents storming

federal, state, and local police agencies seized the celebrity's

Finally, why aren't bloviating blabbermouths
like William Bennett publicly explaining how America
would be better off if Limbaugh were
prosecuted, locked in a steel cage and forced to abandon his
wife, his friends, and his career?
"America's drug warriors are shameless hypocrites
who believe in one standard of justice for
ordinary Americans and another
for themselves, their families and their political allies. That alone
should completely discredit them."
Party Press Release Attribution
I can answer those questions - because Rush is white, and everyone
on that list knows that the GOP only
goes after people of color because they are a party of racist
thugs who want only blacks to go to jail.
GOP = Racist bastards
Is Rush Limbaugh the newest member of the GOP Rat Pack?
On the "new" right, sleazy does it
No topic is better suited to the talents of Frank Rich than the tension
between Republican preaching about strict
morality and Republican longing to be hip. In his Sunday essay
the Times columnist deftly satirizes the
new GOP "rat pack" -- Rush Limbaugh, Arnold Schwarzenegger,
Bill Bennett and sidekick Jay Leno -- while
noting that certain conservative Clinton critics seem to have
developed a sudden taste for sleaze. Rich
acknowledges that the new pack may not live up to the old legend, but still:
"If Arnold strikes some Rat Pack purists as a
faint echo of Peter Lawford's immigrant origins, dubious father
and Kennedy connection, his movie career
and sexual exploits both literally and figuratively outstrip those of his
predecessor. Nor can anyone doubt that
Mr. Leno, the official Schwarzenegger toastmaster, is a late-night wit
on an uncanny par with his antecedent,
Joey Bishop. If only Rush had found a way to join the election night
tableau, it would have been complete: As
we know from his brief but memorable run as a commentator on
ESPN's Sunday N.F.L. Countdown, he can
be more out-of-it than Sammy Davis, the candy man himself."
Expected to Ban Abortion Procedure Today
The Senate was expected to pass the ban
on "partial birth abortion," today. With House passage
of the bill three weeks ago, the Senate's
expected action today will send the bill to the extra-eager Bush.
With Bush's signature, the bill will become
- on paper, if not in effect - the first federal ban on a
specific abortion method since a woman's
constitutional right to have an abortion was established in
1973 by the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade
(news - web sites) decision..
The religiously-insane GOP is going to decide ALL abortions are
Women didn't seem to think this was a proiority in 2000, so many
voted for Bush.
This is Gore's fault. I know he doesn't know what a "bartcop"
is, but he should've taken my advice.
I said, during the 2000 campaign, that he needed to use the BIG
hammer on this issue, but I guess
that would've required some work on his part and I don't think
he wanted to win that race.
Someday soon, all abortions will be illegal and Republicans will
have to fly their daughters
to Montreal to "kill their unborn grandson or granddaughter."
Women will ask, "How did this happen?"
It happened because Gore refused to fight after promsing he would.
