Quote of the Day

"I'm sure you'll be having a nice little tea party
  with your fellow war criminal, Tony Blair. Please 
  wash the cucumber sandwiches down with a glass
  of blood, with my compliments."

Volume 1204 -  Tapestry of Lies 

 Wed-Thurs,  November 19-20, 2003


"Limbaugh cannot have it both ways. Either he will now advocate for rehab and treatments for all
  individuals convicted of drug expenses or he should feel the full weight of the law.  If he doesn't
  go to jail - and he shouldn't - then he has a responsibility  to use his power and influence, his
  millions of listeners, to campaign to change our drugs laws."
   --Jesse Jackson, sounding remarkable naive,

 Jesse, he's also got a responsibility not to lie. What makes you think Rush will be responsible?
 His easily-led sheep won't let anything as small as him being a lying hypocrite and drug abuser
 keep them from worshipping him. Ethics whores like Bill Bennett and Laura the Unloved will
 excuse his behavior the same way they excused Newt's while he was busy impeaching Clinton
 while he was screwing his secretary.

 Bush Chickens Out 
  Afraid to speak when crowd's not hand-picked by Rove

  Click Here

 George Bush was last night branded chicken for scrapping his speech to Parliament because
 he feared being heckled by anti-war MPs.  The US president planned to give a joint address
 to the Commons and Lords during his state visit to Britain - but chickened out at the last minute.

 The only speech Mr Bush is now due to give will be to an "invited audience" in Whitehall.

 Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn said: "This is yet another slight on this country by the president of the USA.
"The least he could do is subject himself to questions from MPs."

 But the monkey doesn't know that trick
 Like Arnold, all he can do is read a script given to him ahead of time..

 And colleague John McDonnell said: "Bush might be able to run from the protesters, he might be able not to see
 the banners, but he must not be able to hide from the anger felt across the country at this unjustified war.".

 Mr. McDonnell, he's been hiding behind his daddy's skirt all his life.
 He has never been held responsible for anything he's ever done.

 "I'm fearless!  Nobody can stop me!"

 Limbaugh, Unbowed 
 'There's No Hypocrisy,' Hypocrite says After Drug Rehab

  Click  Here

 Five weeks after leaving his radio program to check into a rehabilitation clinic, Limbaugh, 52,
 at times sounded more like Dr. Laura than the most popular conservative commentator on the air.
"I can no longer turn over the power of my feelings to anyone else, which is what I have done a lot
 of my life, in order to be liked, appreciated or understood," he said. "And in the process I denied
 myself who I was. I can't be responsible for anybody's happiness but my own."

 I liked Rush better when he was on the heroin.
 From what I've heard of him the last two days, he's just repeating ther same stuff over and over.
 He seems to have lost his sense of when he's made his point, cause he just keeps on and on and on.

 Yesterday a grandmother defied a £19million security clamp by clinging to the gates
 of Buckingham Palace for more than two hours yesterday in protest at Bush's visit.

 Veteran anti-war demonstrator Lindis Percy, 61, unfurled an upside-down US flag
 with the message "Elizabeth Windsor and Co - he's not welcome". Then she refused
 to budge until she climbed down voluntarily and was driven away by police.

 "Kill that woman - do it right now!"

Issue Two

  Best TV Show of the Season

 CBS Chairman Les Moonves wasn't sure when he read the script. He says his head of drama development,
 Nina Tassler, urged him to do the family show because it would attract WB viewers and "Touched by an Angel" fans.
 Then Tony-winner Joe Mantegna and Oscar-winner Mary Steenburgen agreed to play Joan's parents.

"I respect both of them," Moonves says. "I saw the pilot, and said, 'This has so many levels to it.' You know something
 is good when the 50-year-old ... advertising guys in New York call and say, 'This is great. I want to sell this.'"

 Moonves says Tamblyn's casting is essential to the series' success. "If you don't fall in love with that little girl, you're dead.
 She was so appealing, and by the way, so ordinary. I mean that as a compliment. Every girl in America will relate to her."

 Ten Commandments

 Freedom of speech means that you can say pretty much what you want to.
 It doesn't mean that I have to listen to what you have to say.

 I happen to be on Judge Moore's side in this matter. That doesn't mean that I'm overly religious;
 it just means that I do believe in freedom of speech.  I also believe in the US Constitution, that says,
 in words to the effect, that the government will make no laws that interfere with others who want to
 practice their religion whether in public or in private.

 The beauty of all this is that they can have their way, and so can you. It's not the "speaking" that is the problem.
 (Speaking includes posters, bumper stickers, t-shirt messages, junk mailings, burning flags, street corner oratory,
 letters to the editor, advertisements in newspapers, radio and on tv, and any other number of ways people
 "show off" their beliefs, including a monument to the ten commandments.

 None of these interfere with your free speech. You can turn them off, igonore them, or anything else
 to ensure their drivel doesn't insult your intelligence.

 Bottom line. They don't interfere with your ramblings; don't interfere with theirs.

 And don't forget. The good old USA is about the only country in the world where you can get away with
 voicing your view of the government, the ten commandments or anything else you don't happen to like. Ain't that great?

 Chris or Granddad, not sure which.

 So, if I came to your home and put a 5500 pound monument to Shirley Manson on your front lawn, you would allow that?
 I have a feeling you'd tell me to remove that and remind me I didn't own that property - you do.

 Nobody has stopped that crazy judge from doing anything on his property - he's been lying constantly about that.
 He wants the state to endorse his momument - that's why he put it on state property.

 Subject: Eat that, Santorum!

 Woo hoo, what a bad day for Rick Santorum! The Massachusetts Supreme Court
 ruled that under state constitution, marriage rights cannot be denied to gay couples.
 Since it's based on state law, homophobes can't appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court,
 nor can it be overturned in the legislature without a state constitutional amendment.

 The decision has "conservatives" everywhere jumping up and down yelling
"between a man and a woman! between a man and a woman!!"
 The State's argument against gay marriage tried to say that marriage was mostly
 about procreation and gay couples couldn't procreate. I guess that explains the
 groundswell of right wingers fighting to deny marriage rights to senior citizens
 and victims of testicular and ovarian cancer.


 Republicans like to pretend they're for "less government," so why are they always wanting bedroom legislation?
 They want an armed federal agent in every bedroom to be sure everybody does it the way Jesse Helms and Jim Inhofe approve.

 Why can't they just butt the hell out of everybody else's sex life?


"Your state visit to the UK is risky, unpopular and awkward enough. Many Americans will be nervously
  peeking at the TV news from between our tightly crossed fingers and praying that you don't utterly
  disgrace us. Don't go all folksy and Texan, thanking Tony Blair for his friendship. He has enough to deal
  with already in the Labour party without receiving any more public kisses of political death from you.
  Don't interrupt when someone is asking you a question. Try not to puke on the Queen."

 Michael Jackson - At It Again?

 Officers conducting a criminal investigation searched Jackson's Alwaysland Ranch yesterday.
 The purpose of the raid was not disclosed.  Court TV said the search warrant was tied to
 sexual-abuse allegations brought by a 12- or 13-year-old boy.  Sixty to 70 investigators served
 a warrant as part of an "ongoing criminal investigation."

 I'm not an attorney (even though I have over 300 wins in court with no losses) but how can a man
 sexually assault a child and then write a check to the parents and pretend it never happened?
 Could Kobe write that Colorado woman a check for a million and have his rape charges dropped?

 I can understand a property case - if I break a man's windshield with a baseball bat and they drop
 the charges if I agree to pay for a new windshield, but how do you do that after raping a child?
 Maybe he can be Rush's cellmate.

 The "New American Century" Ends Prematurely
     by Gene Lyons

  Click  Here

 Last week's new "Iraqification" plan--the U.S. would retain military control--made
 many suspect that real idea is to prop up a make-believe government in Iraq, call it a
 democracy, proclaim victory during the Republican National Convention, then pray that
 sheer chaos and open civil war among the country's three main ethnic groups--Sunni,
 Shiites and Kurds--don't break out before election day 2004.

 Even as the U.S. command's Hollywood-sounding "Operation Iron Hammer" began
 bombing empty warehouses and shooting up villages deemed loyal to Saddam Hussein,
 Bush felt compelled to deny that the U.S. planned to "cut and run." Doubters came from
 almost every point on the political compass: "My greatest fear is that this administration,
 having made all the wrong choices, is going to conclude they have to bring Johnny and
 Jane home by the next election in order to survive," Joe Biden told the New York Times.

 Subject: Military endorsements for Dean

 Retired Gen. Merrill "Tony" McPeak, the former Air Force chief of staff who endorsed
 Bush in 2000, has left the Republican fold and is backing Howard Dean in 2004.

 McPeak, who headed the Air Force during the Persian Gulf War in 1991, criticized
 Bush's policy toward Iraq before the invasion in March. He also said he has become
 disenchanted with the president's economic policies.

 "I don't think the younger Bush has put a foot right since he entered the White House,"
 said McPeak, who changed his registration from Republican to independent in April.

 In addition to McPeak, Dean has been endorsed by retired Marine Gen. Joseph Hoar,
 who once headed Central Command, which is in charge of all military operations in
 the Mideast. Klass said that retired Adm. Stansfield Turner, who headed the CIA under
 President Carter, also supports Dean and that several other retired military officers are
 informal advisers and might endorse him.

 No Jeff, you're wrong. They CLAIM they defend families, then they gut programs to help them.

 Bush Boy Negotiates Weak Settlement with Mutual Fund

  Click  Here

 Despite President Bush's strong support for corporate accountability, the President's hand-picked
 Securities and Exchange Commission chairman, William Donaldson, is coming under fire for negotiating
 a weak first settlement in the burgeoning mutual funds scandal with the nation's fifth-largest fund.

 President Bush's corporate responsibility bill, signed into law in July 2002, was designed to address the wave
 of corporate scandals that had impacted markets, beginning with Enron's collapse in December 2001.
"The fundamentals of a free market...require clear rules and confidence in basic fairness."1

 The SEC settlement with Putnam Investments, announced last week, prompted Massachusetts Commonwealth
 Secretary Bill Galvin to say, "It's clear that the SEC is more interested in papering over wrongdoing than uncovering it."

 The huge bombings of the Shiites at the Najaf mosque and the vicious bombings of the UN and Red Cross are
 probably the opening shots in this coming War. They are convinced America can be dealt with- first they've ensured
 no other governments will send sizable quantities of troops, and guaranteed their countrymen endless hardship without
 the solace of international relief agencies. The rebels attacking US, Shiite, and relief forces are from 6 groups: Baathist
 and Saddamites re-seeking their position at the top of the food chain; Sunni Army people who also want to reassert
 their dominance over the Shiites; people out to revenge killed, injured, or humiliated relatives in the invasion, occupation,
 or 12 year sanctions (which killed maybe 2/3 million); criminals released under Saddamnesty, foreign jihadists lured to
 Iraq by our reckless invasion; and radical Shiites who want to control their sect, think they could persevere in a Civil War,
 and still think of America as the Great Satan. There are way too few troops to do the job in Iraq, but against a guerrilla war,
 more troops are just more targets, and it's probably already too late.

 A message for the troops

  Click Here

 I am a retired veteran of the army, and my own son is among you, a paratrooper like I was.
 In 1970, I was assigned to the 173rd Airborne Brigade, in what was then the Republic of Vietnam.

 Before I got there in 1970, the American armed forces had been burning villages, killing livestock,
 poisoning farmlands and forests, killing civilians for sport, bombing whole villages, and committing rapes
 and massacres, and the people who were grieving and raging over that weren't in a position to figure out
 the difference between me - just in country - and the people who had done those things to them.

 Wait - this can't be right.
 I've got written guarantees from dozens of men that soldiers never commit rape.

 Jessica Lynch (who never made the claim) has to be lying about her sexual abuse,
 because there's no way any soldier would rape a woman in the fog of war, not even
 a helpless, pretty blonde girl from a country we hate that invaded us for no reason.

 Spinning Fumbles into Touchdowns
  by David Hackworth

 Jessica Lynch says she simply wasn't the GI Jane superstar that desperate White House and Pentagon flacks
 morphed her into last March when the battle to take Baghdad was briefly bogged down in the desert.

 True, Lynch wasn't the fighting action figure extolled by a gullible press corps that gobbled up the Rove boys'
 Pentagon-processed baloney. But the way this little wisp of a girl has stood up to the world's biggest propaganda
 machine makes her a hero in my book. Telling the truth had to take at least a bellyful of that tried-and-true
 West Virginia moral courage.

 Lynch's rescue was right out of the movie "Wag the Dog" - a complex night helicopter raid executed by our best
 and brightest, who were saddled with and filmed by Pentagon PR camera teams to make absolutely sure that the
 upbeat, breaking story played on all network and cable news within hours after the dramatic Special Forces coup.

 This has to be the low point in the Pentagon's quest to sell war: Good men's lives placed at risk for high prime-time
 ratings and poll-tweaking rather than military necessity.

 Ex wants Neil Bush to undergo paternity test

  Click  Here

 Sharon Bush has asked a state district court judge to order her ex-husband -- Bush's brother Neil Bush
 -- to submit to a blood test to settle a paternity question at the heart of a defamation lawsuit against her.

 The request, filed Monday, asks that the judge order Neil Bush and Robert Andrews to submit blood tests
 to determine the paternity of Andrews' 2-year-old son.

 Sharon Bush contends she needs the tests to defend herself against a $850,000 defamation lawsuit filed
 against her by Andrews. Andrews' suit contends Bush defamed him when she suggested in conversations
 with reporters, friends and restaurant employees that his son may have been fathered by Neil Bush.

 Andrews and his wife, Maria Andrews, divorced in October 2002 after 14 years of marriage. The Bushes
 divorced in April after a 23-year marriage. Neil Bush and Maria Andrews met several years ago when she
 was working as a volunteer for former first lady Barbara Bush.

 Liberals Fight Back; Pundits Are Shocked
   by Joe Conason

  Click  Here

 As a journalist, columnist and author of two books about contemporary conservatism, I have hurled
 a few opinions myself. In fact, writers who decry the progressive offensive occasionally cite my work
 as an unhealthy example (although not often enough). Hearing such complaints about our degraded
 political debate, what strikes me is their extreme tardiness, after decades of increasingly shrill assault
 from the right on liberals and Democrats.

 During those years, and in particular during the Clinton era, accusations of immorality, criminality and
 even treason became so commonplace in Republican discourse that hardly anyone bothered to protest.
 None of these worthies piped up. Where were the righteous critics when their pleas for civility might have mattered?

 Have a good time today.
