Volume 1211 -  I ain't dead yet

  Weekend   November 29-30, 2003


"Bush-haters hate Bush for the least articulable reasons, the visceral kind that never
  quite rises to the level of rationality. They're often at a loss even to explain who it is
  they hate--the Yalie plutocrat or the hill-country Bible-thumper?
   --Andrew Ferguson,  Attribution

 Andrew, lying to get us into a fake war to steal Iraq's oil and killing 433 soldiers isn't a good enough reason to hate Bush?
 War, rcesssion and funerals might be the same as peace and prosperity to you, but they're not to me.
 You guys hated Clinton for befriending blacks and gays, so stick your pious, pompous crap up your ass.

 CIA admits lack of specifics on WMD before invasion 

  Click  Here

 The CIA has acknowledged it "lacked specific information" about alleged Iraqi WMD
 when it compiled an intelligence estimate last year that served to justify the US-led invasion of Iraq.

 But it said that and other uncertainties surrounding the case had been fully presented to Bush
 and other US policymakers in the October 2002 National Intelligence Estimate, a document
 often referred to by members of the Bush administration as a basis of their claim that Iraq had
 an arsenal of weapons of mass destruction.

 Will Bush ever be held accountable for any of his deadly crimes?.
 The Democrats are so in love with him...

"The recent saga of Rush Limbaugh and his drug addiction raises important questions. The crucial thing is
 not that Mr. Limbaugh was a drug addict who fed his habit on the black market. That private vice is small
 change compared to his larger, public sin. The real issue about Mr. Limbaugh is brought into focus by asking:
 What does it say about a man if he can talk with contempt, without a shred of compassion, about the
 shortcomings of others while knowing that he is no better than they? And that raises the still larger question:
 What does it say about a society if it repeatedly grants high moral authority to people who practice such hypocrisy?"

"We are ready for any unforeseen event that may or may not occur."
   -- Vice President Al Gore, 9/22/97

 I was searching through some of their stuff--namely their political jokes, of which 90% happen to
 be anti-Clinton/anti-Democrat shit. That's fine, I don't mind making fun of Clinton, as long as it's
 somewhat tasteful and a little funny.  But I get to this link called "Al Gore Quotes".   I start reading
 a few and say to myself, "damn...these sound familiar..." and then it hits me--Al Gore didn't say any
 of this shit, DAN QUAYLE DID!

 McCain Lashes Congress, Bush for Overspending
  McCain has more courage than the we-love-Bush Democrats

  Click  Here

 John McCain berated fellow lawmakers for "spending money like a drunken sailor" and said
 Bush was also to blame for pushing the nation toward higher interest rates and inflation.

 On "Fox Whore News Sunday" program, McCain decried a $31 billion national energy bill,
 still pending until at least next year, much of which would fund industry tax breaks.

 Iraq: Quicksand & Blood
  by Robert Perry of  consortiumnews.com

  Click  Here

 The body dumps that have been unearthed across Central America are thus little different from
 the mass graves blamed on Saddam Hussein in Iraq, except in Central America they represented
 the dark side of U.S. foreign policy and received far less U.S. press scrutiny. Another lesson learned
 from the 1980s was the importance of shielding the American people from the ugly realities of a
 U.S.-backed "dirty war" by using P.R. techniques, which became known inside the Reagan
 administration as "perception management."

 The temptation to recycle these counterinsurgency strategies from Central America to Iraq is explained
 by the number of Reagan-era officials now back in prominent roles in George W. Bush's administration.

 Gay Marriage a Tricky Issue for Democrats
   by Gene Lyons

  Click  Here

 Absent gay marriage, the right Democrat could certainly carry Arkansas.
 Florida and West Virginia are also winnable. Based upon recent election
 results, Virginia and Louisiana may be within reach, and possibly Georgia.
 Democratic victories in two Southern states would make it almost impossible
 for George W. Bush to win the 270 electoral votes needed to remain in office.

 Losing them all, however, would likely finish the Democratic hopeful.

 Some FOX weasel accuses The General of calling the soldiers a "sideshow."
 He says "No, I called the White House a sideshow, not ther soldiers" and
 the FOX guy was lucky he wasn't in the same studio as The General.

 Conservatives Shocked By the Power of Money
   by Joe Conason

  Click  Here

 Exactly what has Mr. Soros done to provoke this reaction? He has given $3 million to a new
 liberal Washington think tank, the Center for American Progress. And yes, he has publicly
 pledged $10 million to Americans Coming Together, a liberal voter-registration effort, and
 $5 million to MoveOn.org, an Internet-based group that is raising millions of dollars in small
 donations for liberal candidates and causes.

 That sounds like a lot of money, except when contrasted with the enormous amounts pumped
 into organs of conservative propaganda every year by such truly prodigious spenders as Sun Myung
 Moon, Rupert Murdoch, Richard Mellon Scaife and literally dozens of other obscure but rich Republicans.

 Subject: Censorship

 Dear Bartcop:

 I was truly disappointed that you censored 'Boondocks'. That is the same crap that we get from the neo-cons.
 So what if the strip was over the top? Let us decide what is or isn't acceptable.

 Living in Utah, Bartcop is the only place that I can get 'Boondocks'.
 I am used to repression and censorship and being disenfranchised but, to find that on Bartcop?
 It is simply too much.

 There is no unity in being splintered and marginalized and fractious. If those of us in opposition to the corporate
 madness and all things neo-con can't come together, well the Repuglicans have won 2004 already.

 Don't be a hypocrite Bartbro and don't be a censor.
 somewhat concerned,

 If disliking poop-eating jokes makes me a bad guy, I'll just have to get used to it.
 ...and it's not like he did one - it was a whole week of poop on the Thanksgiving table.

 US Dead In Iraq Exceed First Three Years Of Vietnam
  This story is from November 21

  Click  Here

 A Reuters analysis of Defense Department statistics showed on Thursday that the Vietnam War,
 which the Army says officially began on Dec. 11, 1961, produced a combined 392 fatal casualties
 from 1962 through 1964, when American troop levels in Indochina stood at just over 17,000.

 By comparison, a roadside bomb attack that killed a soldier in Baghdad on Wednesday brought to
 397 the tally of American dead in Iraq, where U.S. forces number about 130,000 troops -- the
 same number reached in Vietnam by October 1965.

Great Christmas Gifts

 Subject: Bush's visit to Iraq

 At first I thought Bush finally did a decent thing by visiting soldiers. But then I read about
 the concern about the trip's safety. Isn't it funny how Bush could be concerned about his
 own safety to such a degree but when it comes to the soldiers apparently it's not so important.

 Body armor?
 No rush.

 Exit strategy?
 We'll figure it out later.

 Lack of soldiers?
 More soldiers not needed since soldiers will be embraced by grateful Iraqis.

 A good reason to put soldiers in harms way to begin with?
 Nah. Lies will do.

 It's a collection of resignation letters written by disaffected members of the Bush administration who so disagreed
 with administration policies that they preferred the uncertainty of the unemployment line to toeing the party line.

 I've also taken the liberty of including excerpts from what I imagine the first drafts of these letters might have looked like.

 Bush's American soldier body count in Iraq

 Last issue it was.. times  434  ....this issue it's  times 439

 Eight more Americans lives snuffed out by the disaster of Bush stealing the White House.
 Soon - we'll be at 500, and then 800 and then 1000.

 Will the Democrats be willing to fight for their country next November?
 Or will they just hand it to Bush on their knees, like they did in 2000 and 2002?

      I'm a serious president.

 Total deaths since President Giggle and Kill said, "Bring 'em On":  229  234

 From:  http://lunaville.org/warcasualties/Summary.aspx

 Plus, at least  2401  2442  wounded for Bush's illegal oil grab.
 Many of them are missing arms, legs, eyes and their memories from head wounds.

 Subject: Bush Iraq campaign stop


 White House officials are discounting "liberal" statements that Bush's 2-½-hour super-secret visit
 to Iraq was most definitely NOT a campaign stunt, like his other infamous costumed visit to an
 aircraft carrier in May. Condoleezza Rice was quick to point out that not one of the troops carefully
 selected as Bush's audience was pressured to contribute $2000 a plate for their Thanksgiving dinner.

 Tyler, TX

 It sickens me the way Bush's good puppy media is fawning over that 2.5 hour visit.
 There are 130,000 troops there, Bush spent a few minutes with 600 of them.
 he served food long enough for the good puppy photographers to get pictures.

 I guess we don't mind losing three soldiers a day if Bush rides in for a photo-op.

 Dear Mr. Ex President Clinton:

  I recently saw a bumper sticker that said, "Thank me, I voted for Clinton-Gore."
 So, I sat down and reflected on that, and I am sending my "Thank you" for what you have done, specifically:

  Click  Here

 7.   Thank you, for the 19 charges, 8 convictions, and 4 imprisonment's from the Whitewater "mess" and
  the 55 criminal charges and 32 criminal convictions (so far) in the other "Clinton" scandals.

 All horseshit.
 The only guy connected to Clinton who was convicted was a guy who stole from Hillary.
 You can continue to pretend what didn't happen actiually did, but it didn't.

 Joe Conason's Journal

"We'll see whether the Chinese Communist angle draws the attention of the Washington press corps. But the media,
 almost always enticed by sexual misbehavior, has mostly avoided the gamy stories that have already emerged from
 the Bush divorce. That subject arose again during the March deposition, when Sharon Bush's lawyer asked about
 women who had mysteriously showed up at Neil Bush's hotel rooms in Thailand and Hong Kong for sexual assignations.
 Neil Bush insisted that he didn't pay the women and didn't know who might have arranged for their services

 Obviously this could provide rich material for cable television, with Sharon Bush's lawyers telling tales on "Hardball"
 or "Larry King Live." Yet I suspect that discretion, -- and double standards known as "the Clinton rules" -- will prevail "

"When things get tough, do what Bart does:
  Tell stress 'Eat me' and go about your day."
