Quote of the Day
"I can understand people not liking war,
President Zero, let me explain it to you:
"Today was Veteran's Day, a day to honor those
brave Americans who have fought to defend
our country - or in our president's case, a day to freak them out. Bush commemorated
Veteran's Day by attending a ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, then signing the
National Cemetery Expansion Act, which basically establishes new burial grounds for veterans.
So happy Veteran's Day - we wanted to give you health insurance but ..."
Two Black Hawks crashed Saturday night in Mosul, killing at least 17
coalition American soldiers
and injuring at least nine, the military said. Witnesses said the two aircraft collided in mid-air.
"Bring 'em on! War is just what I need.
I'm a big hero and the American media loves me!"
9-11 Victims' Relatives Criticize Deal
Relatives of people who perished in the Sept. 11 attacks say a federal commission accepted
too many conditions in striking a deal with the White House over access to secret intelligence documents.
The Family Steering Committee, a group of
victims' relatives who are monitoring the work of the
independent (Oh, please!) commission, criticized the agreement announced late Wednesday.
Under the deal, only some of the 10 commissioners will be allowed to examine classified
intelligence documents, and their notes will be subject to White House review.
"We really want to know the details here," said
Lorie Van Auken of New Jersey, whose husband
was killed at the WTC. "I don't understand what's so secret about that. I mean, this is not a game."
The 10-member commission has equal numbers
of Republicans and Democrats.
and four other Democrats are on that commission.
They should resign and call a press conference and say publicly what we've known for months - that this
is a political handjob that Lee Hamilton and other protectors of the guilty are pulling on the families of the dead.
Why are Cleland and the others accepting
Why the hell don't they make some noise?
If Bush is innocent, why can everyone see
every damn file they have?
If Bush didn't know about 9-11 in advance, what harm could come by being open and honest?
"Mr. Rove will decide what the families need to know."
Subject: Teddy Kennedy
Dear Greg Whitman,
I am a reader of Bartcop and one of his
friends forwarded me an email of yours criticizing Rush for
talking about the word "niggardly" which is not in anyway connected to black people or African-Americans.
Two days ago Ted Kennedy called California
Supreme Court Justice Brown a "Neanderthal."
She is a black woman under criticism by Democrat Senators for being a conservative nominee to the Washington Circuit Court.
I would like to know if you think Teddy Kennedy is a racist?
Of course, "niggardly" is a perfectly acceptable word,
but so is "dog," as in "Chelsea is the White House dog."
Rush uses "niggardly" with a little quirk in his voice as a wink
to let his listeners know
that's he'd really enjoy using the word "nigger," but those awful PC police won't allow it
and we'd all be better off without having to appease the darkies by calling a spade a spade.
He is a vulgar pig, which is how he got his name.
Ted Kennedy is not a racist.
Neanderthal describes a backwards way of thinking - not a race.
Poll: Brits Furious at Bush Visit Cost
Almost half of Britons believe George Bush is threatening world peace rather than helping bring it about.
And as the US President prepares for his trip to Britain next week, many insist they don't want him here.
Three out of four feel Mr Bush's war on
terror is making the planet less safe as renegade groups hit back in retaliation.
A Mirror/GMTV poll also found 75 per cent of people were furious at the £4million cost of security for his state visit
- far more than has been spent on policing previous trips.
And Blair's "special relationship" with
Bush doesn't come out of the ICM survey too well either.
Only 27 per cent of those quizzed yesterday believe the partnership is good for Britain while 38 per cent say the opposite.
Massive demonstrations are planned for Mr
Bush's visit and US officials had wanted to cordon off large parts of London
amid fears of terrorist attacks. But 64 per cent say it is wrong for protesters to be kept away from Busht and voicing their
disapproval of the Iraq war.
"Those people have no right...
I'm not going to allow any....
I've ordered the Secret Service to...
WASHINGTON-January 6, 2004. A paramilitary organization calling itself the Christian Liberation Front
changed the balance of power in Washington by a pair of brutal attacks this afternoon. A force estimated at
about 200 CLF commandos stormed the Supreme Court building, killing 35 people, including five Supreme
Court Justices. At the same time, a contingent of 1,000 CLF paramilitaries attacked the Hart Senate Office
Building, where a Senate Democratic Caucus meeting was being held. Approximately 50 people were killed
in the attack. Once the commandos had seized the building, they systematically killed Democratic senators
from states with Republican governors. Here is a list of the 21 senators killed.
Daniel Akaka Byron Dorgan
Mary Landrieu John Breaux Bob Graham Blanche Lincoln
Hillary Clinton Ernest Hollings Barbara Mikulski Kent Conrad Daniel Inouyye
David Pryor Tom Daschle Tim Johnson Harry Reid Mark Dayton Ted Kennedy
Paul Sarbanes Chris Dodd John Kerry Chuch Schumer
This guy says he doesn't advocate murdering Democrats, so why did he bring it up?
You can tell he's not too bright, because he wants to kill Breaux,
Breaux always votes with the Unelected Fraud - no need to shoot him.

There's a new game in town.
It's called, "Bart believes every lie the B.F.E.E. tells him."
It's not all that much fun to play, nonetheless it's become very popular.
Subject: Jessica and the Iraqi doctors
I ask you, if she was taken to the hospital
a few hundred yards from the attack within the hour, you mean to tell me
some Iraqi raped her out there amid the wreckage while she was lying there with blood all over and broken bones
like a limp rag doll, then buttoned her back up and zipped up her pants all tidy?
No, I don't
mean to tell you that.
First, there's very little I''d put past ANY soldier who has been at war too long.
Our troops were in Iraq just a few months when OUR guys were charged with sexually abusing
some male Iraqi POWs, so let's stop saying rape never happens in war, OK?
Besides, as I've said a hundred times, I wasn't there so I don't know anything for sure,
but all accounts say Jessica showed up at the hospital without her vest and uniform.
They were brought in by people in the neighborhood afterwards, according to ABC News.
And if this alleged rape is evidenced by
the medical reports, do you mean to tell me that they "rescued" her medical
when they "rescued" her, and that the medical reports contradicted what the doctor said who saved her life?
Monday's online Time Magazine said:
"The exam in Landstuhl," Dr.
Greg Argyros, her primary doctor during her 100 days at Walter Reed,
told TIME, "indicated that the injuries were consistent with possible anal sexual assault."
If you want
to claim Dr. Argyros is a B.F.E.E. tool, I'll listen to that claim.
But there are times when we're going to have to trust what we hear.
Unless you or I have a agent in Baghdad, we're going to have to trust somebody.
He's the same guy who would've written the
damn medical records!
Doesn't bartcop recognize total bullshit when he sees it?
No, I've never had any experience at recognizing
I'm a naive, Okie rube who believes every lie that the B.F.E.E. shoots at me.
BTW, you haven't cited a source for your certainty that Lynch's doctors are lying.
This story is a travesty, the very epitome
of the war propaganda they've been dishing out so blatantly and which he
castigates them for so regularly. Notice that when asked about it by Sawyer in the interview, Jessie never confirmed
the rape story but gave some weasly remark.
Breaking your femur, plus other bones, can
put a person into shock.
That doesn't make her a weasel.
And doesn't anybody remember when her family was interviewed after the event and said that she didn't have memory loss?
Apparently she has a remarkable memory,
except for the 1-3 hours between the wreck and the hospital.
At that time, if you remember, the Pentagon
was saying she had amnesia and couldn't remember a thing about her captivity.
Now it's down to 3 hours (which is totally believable, she was almost dead). So during those three hours those evil evil Iraqis
must have raped her (and sodomized, don't forget sodomized! Gotta make them as bad as we can, those nasty Iraqis),
though of course there's no remotely believable way of providing any evidence for that.
Well, except from the statements from her
primary doctor at Walter Reed.
Like I've said, he may be lying, but he also may not be lying.
Time to wake up and smell the coffee, bartcop.
Jessica was used and abused, all right, but not by the Iraqis.
So, you're giving me the Nancy Grace guarantee
that nobody laid a finger on her?
It's amazing that you can do that - after reading the same things I read about her.
It boggles the mind to hear you suggest that soldiers at war would NOT commit rape.
History disagrees with you.
Of course the President has a brain...
"The first 17 years of my life, my family lived

'spirit' cursed with black magic, tossed into river
Pinhead has more than one Hex to worry about...
"I can't take no more."
The spirit of George W Bush has been trapped in a clay pot and tossed into a river in northern
Thailand after being cursed by hundreds of farmers protesting US agriculture policy.
A photograph of the US leader was sealed
inside a pot amid black magic mantra chants, then tossed
into the Ping River on Friday by demonstrators after they rallied at the US consulate in Chiang Mai.
A respected elder performed the voodoo rites,
inscribing ancient Khmer scripts on the pot,
aimed at trapping the spirit of the never-elected American dictator.
Not content with capture and torture, the organs have been given presidential authority to carry out raids
and kill "suspected terrorists" (including Americans) on their own volition -- without charges, oversight or
evidence -- anywhere in the world, including on American soil. What's more, through a series of executive
orders, Bush has asserted the right to designate anyone he pleases "an enemy combatant" and have them
"rendered" into indefinite detention or simply killed at his order -- again, without charges, evidence, oversight
or appeal. The life of every American citizen -- every person on Earth -- is now at the mercy of his arbitrary whim.
The stories appear -- then they disappear.
There is no reaction. No outcry in Congress or the courts -- the supposed
guardians of the people's rights -- beyond a few wan calls for more formality in the concentration camp processing
or judicial "warrants" for torture. And among the great mass of "the people" itself, there is -- nothing. Silence. Inattention.
Indifference. Acquiescence. State terrorism -- lawless seizure, filthy torture, official murder -- is simply accepted, a part
of "normal life," as in Nazi Germany or Stalin's empire, where "decent people" with "nothing to hide" approved and
applauded the work of the "organs" in "defending national security."
This is the scandal, this is the nation's
festering shame. This acquiescence to state terror will breed -- and attract
a thousand evils for every one it supposedly prevents.
Why bother with a Constitution when we have John Ashcroft and Karl Rove to protect us?
Subject: Rush quote from back in the day
You've probably seen this recently, but I just have to send you
a Rush quote from your second issue in 1996:
Rush says we don't need a flag-burning amendment.
He said "What's next, making it illegal to criticize the President?"
Rush always claimed to knows the future.
Looks like he was right this time..
Joeve's Radio Show
Wesley Clark said he would ask Saudi Arabia to deploy commandos alongside U.S. troops
as part of a three-point plan to capture Osama bin Laden and other al-Qaida leaders.
Clark said although the Bush administration was right to target al-Qaida after 9-11, it gave up too quickly.
"It's high time we got serious in finishing what
we started," he said at Dartmouth College.
"If I were president of the United States right now, I wouldn't be proposing it, I'd be doing it."
Clark said he would start by pressuring
Saudi Arabia to contribute to a joint U.S.-Saudi
commando force to scour the Afghan-Pakistani border where bin Laden is thought to be hiding."
That last sentence was in the last or second last radio show.
Why the hell are we dying in Iraq for oil?
If our boys are going to make sacrifices, it should be attacking
bin Laden on the Afghani-Pakistan border,
not securing the oil fields for a snot-nosed, rich punk who never worked a single day in his whole life.
brought back from the dead
39 minutes after they called it
"Am I seeing things? Does she look like she's breathing?" Detective Kendrick asked his partner.
Less than an hour earlier, Kendrick had
broken the news to the girl's mother that she had been
pronounced dead by doctors. He stood by as the mother said goodbye to her daughter.
Then, 39 minutes after she had been pronounced
dead - her chest appeared to spasm.
The detectives thought it was releasing gas but the spasms continued and became longer.
"It looks like she's breathing," Kendrick told his partner. "Go and get somebody."
Rebert returned with a nurse, who put a
stethoscope to the girl's chest. Doctors raced in.
Machines were turned back on. Mackayala had a pulse. The cops shook their heads in disbelief.
Kendrick had the job of telling Mackayala's mother that her daughter was alive.

Demo Theme Songs
Tom Harkin might not be the Democrat with whom I identify the
but he's got the best musical intoduction in today's political arena.
It's one of the best songs ever written, but does it have a message?
When Harkin was introduced in Iowa Saturday night, we heard Zeppelin's
The second time they introduced him, they played the Puffy/Page Kashmir
Hillary had U2's It's a Beautiful Day, Kucinich
had Lennon's Power to the People,
or it could've been Revolution - I think I heard both. CM Braun used Hillary's
"Stronger Steel" song from 2000. (By the way, who does that song?)
When Ann Coulter gets introduced, they play, I'm just a girl who can't say no.
Hillary mentioned the wounded soldiers at Walter Reed who've lost
their memory due to head wounds.
I hadn't thought of that.
Swear to Koresh - I could be a speech writer for any of
I couldn't write the speech, but I could damn sure punch one up.
There are so many times when a Democrat gets a double or a triple.
A change of words here and there could make those extra base hits home runs.
If any of you Demo candidates read this - I hereby volunteer
time I don't have, but I'll find that time.
Send me a speech your candidate is going to give and let me punch it up.
If you don't like my punches, then the worst that happens is a junior staffer wasted three minutes.
But what if I can contribute a phrase that catches fire?
Like everything in life, elections are just like a game of poker.
Ante up three minutes of your time and send me a speech.
I'll stay in the background - I can't hurt your campaign if you
see my stuff and reject it.

Subject: Tom Crews
Come on Bart,
I'm shocked that you don't think Tom Crews is that good an actor. I mean, C'mon!
Let me refresh your memory, as to great quotes from some of his more legendary roles:
"Show me the money" -Jerry Maguire
"I'm an excellent driver, gotta go to K-Mart, 2-3--04" -Rain Man
"You can't handle the truth!" -Few Good Men
Oh! wait...those were quotes from people that acted opposite him in those movies. Hmmm...
Well, what about the: "I feel the need -- the need for speed!!" scene from Top Gun...
Isn't that worth a grain of Oscar salt? I know that my teenage sister liked that movie a lot.
So if anything, I know that this new Samurai flick should bring him the golden trophy.
You know why?
Because we now know that all those Civil War doods had their teeth capped before going into battle
(and they were shorter than their ex-wives, not that there's anything wrong w/ that).
John W. in H-Town
John, remember when Cruise said he did all his own stunts for Mission Impossible?
Trust me, if that's Tom Cruise he's only one foot off the ground.

"Do you expect the invasion, if it comes, to be welcomed by the majority of the civilian population of Iraq?"
Jim Lehrer asked the defense secretary on PBS' "The News Hour."
"There is no question but that they would be welcomed,"
Rumsfeld replied, referring to American forces.
"Go back to Afghanistan, the people were in the streets playing music, cheering, flying kites, and doing
all the things that the Taliban and the al-Qaeda would not let them do."
That was then - this is now.
"Before the war in Iraq, you stated the case very
eloquently and you said . . . they would welcome us with open arms,"
Sinclair Broadcasting anchor Morris Jones said to Rumsfeld as the prelude to a question.
The defense chief quickly cut him off. "Never
said that," he said. "Never did. You may remember it well, but you're
thinking of somebody else. You can't find, anywhere, me saying anything like either of those two things you just said I said."
takes Diebold to Court
Court Hearing on Their Threats Against Critics
Diebold has threatened a dozen or more ISPs who host websites that publish or link to
an email archive that includes emails from Diebold staff confirming flaws in Diebold
voting machines and difficulties certifying the systems for actual elections.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF)
and the Center for Internet and Society Cyberlaw Clinic
at Stanford Law School are providing legal representation to the ISP OPG and two Swarthmore students,
Nelson Pavlosky and Luke Smith, in this important case to prevent abusive copyright claims from silencing
public debate about voting, the very foundation of our democratic process.
"We are pleased that the court has recognized
the urgency of our case against Diebold with an expedited schedule,"
said EFF Staff Attorney Wendy Seltzer. "Diebold must not be permitted to use unfounded copyright claims to
stifle public debate over the accuracy of electronic voting machines."

What is it better than?
Carson the Republican
We lose 40,000 people a year in car wrecks.
If we mandated "Bicycles Only," those lives would be saved, right?
But we don't do that because we want our mobile freedom more than we want those 40,000 lives..
We could save thousands more lives if we did away with guns, alcohol and electricity,
but we choose to have those dangerous things because we enjoy them, more than saving lives.
Would could save thousands of fetal lives
if we outlawed abortion, but having Tom Delay,
George Bush and Jim Inhofe determine a woman's reproductive choices is too high a price to pay.
You Republicans always claim you want less
government, yet you want the federal government to
get between a woman and her doctor to dictate orders on what's best for her?
What a sham.
Your party wants a MORE powerful federal government.
They hide behind that "less government" lie to fool the people who aren't paying attention.
Consider yourself straightened out.

Roy Horn Continues to Improve
Six weeks after being mauled, Roy Horn has seen "significant" improvement, his manager said Friday.
Bernie Yuman, who manages Siegfried & Roy, told Larry King that Horn is "getting better every day."
"Yep, dat's what he said."
Bernie creeped me out Friday night.
He answered Larry's questions like a really bad lawyer.
From the transcript:
KING: Does he have an ability to eat on his own?
YUMAN: Roy's doing very well, Larry, and he's continuing to progress every single day.
KING: The tabloid that said he was paralyzed and in a coma and on a ventilator -- was that wrong?
YUMAN: Respectfully, I'm not going to dignify any rumors. I'm here tonight to (say) we're really optimistic about where Roy is.
What happened to answering the question?
Roy's either eating on his own or he's being fed with a tube.
He's either paralyzed and in a coma and on a ventilator or he's not, and if this
is a privacy issue, why is Bernie going on national TV talking about Roy's health?
I ended up more worried about Roy than when the interview started.

The CIA's latest assessment of Iraq is
not quite the happy news Bush likes to hear.
Yes, they told him so -- but he probably didn't hear. The original Philadelphia Inquirer story
on the CIA's pessimistic new Iraq assessment is worth reading -- not only for details that
stories on the CIA report in other media have omitted, but also for reporter Jonathan Landay's
assessment of his sources' motives.
