"The greatest disaster to ever happen in our country could have been prevented by Bush.
  He has taken more vacations, more long week-ends, and more taxpayer financed campaign
  fundraising trips than any President in history.  Why was Bush taking a month off to vacation
  just prior to 9/11 when he and his national security adviser had been warned repeatedly of its
  imminence? Why did he fail to alert the American people? Is it too much to ask of the President
  to stay on the job and not take a month's vacation if he has been told we might be attacked."
     --Cheri Delbrocco, "Mad as Hell

 Too bad the democrats won't call Bush on that.
 Their silence means he didn't do anything wrong.

 Bush's mad cow may be in 8 states
  Wish we had a leader in the White House

  Click  Here

 Investigators have determined that some of the meat from the diseased dairy cow slaughtered
 Dec. 9 in Washington state could have gone to Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana and Guam.

 Earlier, officials had said most of the meat went to Washington and Oregon, with lesser
 amounts to California and Nevada, for distribution to consumers.

 If mad cow is as contagious as they say, we in trouble.
 They say the "harvesting" of the meat is what spreads the disease, which means
 every other cow in the slaughterhouse must be assumed to be infected.

 And every cow from that slaughterhouse that was shipped or sold?
 All those slaughterhouses must be assumed to be infected.
 And every cow from that slaughterhouse that was shipped or sold must be assumed to be infected.

 I don't think it's possible to overstate this problem.

 What I'd like to be hearing is disgruntled ranchers complaining on all the cable channels
 that the big, mean federal government is "overreacting" to this almost certain catastrophe.

 Remember, it started with just Oregon.
 Then they said we should include Washington and northern Idaho.
 Now they're talking about eight states!
 How many states will be affected a week from now?

 Do you own stock in McDonalds or Burger King?

 Too bad we have an acting president who believes in relaxing the rules
 and thinks business ethics should be regulated with the honor system.

 If my search engine worked, you could check the back issues.
 In many rants about "less government," the first example was often "fewer meat inspectors."

 Let's hope the damages from Bush's latest blunder will be merely financial.


"For years, as a Colorado River guide I told people how the Grand Canyon was formed over the evolutionary

 Medical evacuations from Iraq near 11,000
  But don't worry, Bush and Rummy say things are going great

  Click Here

 The total number of wounded soldiers and medical evacuations from the war in Iraq is nearing 11,000,
 according to new Pentagon data provided in response to a request from UPI.

 The military has made 8,581 medical evacuations from Operation Iraqi Freedom for non-hostile causes
 in addition to the 2,273 wounded -- a total of 10,854, according to the new data. The Pentagon says that 457 troops have died.

 The Pentagon's casualty update for Operation Iraqi Freedom listed on its Web site, however,
 does not reflect thousands of the evacuations.

 It is a toll the country has not seen since Vietnam, said Aseneth Blackwell, former national president of
 Gold Star Wives of America, Inc., a support group for people who lose a spouse from war.

"It is staggering," said Blackwell.

 Blackwell sometimes visits Walter Reed where some Iraq veterans get medical care.
 "To see these guys walking around up there with an arm missing, a leg missing, that is when it hits you in the face," said Blackwell..

 It's important that the major media cover up the facts and keep us in the dark.
 Bush must be elected to the presidency no matter how many soldiers die.
 If we have 11,000 soldiers with arms and legs blown off, we should look past that
 and thank the Invisible Cloud Being for sending us George the war hero and fighter pilot.

 Cyber Blackmail Wave Targets Office Workers

  Click  Here

 Cyber blackmail artists are shaking down office workers, threatening to delete computer files
 or install pornographic images on their work PCs unless they pay a ransom, police and security experts said.

 The extortion scam, which is believed to have surfaced one year ago, indiscriminately targets anyone
 on the corporate ladder with a PC connected to the Internet.

 It usually starts with a threatening e-mail in which the author claims to have the power to take over
 a worker's computer through an exploit in the corporate network, experts said.

 The e-mail typically contains a demand that unless a small fee is paid -- at first no more than $20 or $30
 -- they will attack the PC with a file-wiping program or download onto the machine images of child pornography.

 If Marc Perkel hosts your website, you don't have to worry about stuff like this.
 If a blackmailer contacts you, just tell him Bart says "Suck on it," and go back to reading  bartcop.com

 Perkel is Montecore when it comes to free speech.

 Clark's new TV ad features Bill Clinton

  Click  Here

 Wesley Clark's new television commercial includes a clip of him and Bill Clinton.
 It's the first ad of the 2004 campaign to include Clinton, arguably America's most popular Democrat.

 The clip is only a few seconds and shows Clinton walking from a podium at the White House to place
 the Presidential Medal of Freedom over Clark's head, honoring his fellow Arkansan for his work in
 Kosovo as NATO supreme allied commander.

 Another smart move by the man most likely to send Bush back to Crawford, Texas to talk to the cows.

 Michael Jackson used to live at Neverland Ranch.
 He says he won't live there again, after 83 LA detectives moved everybody out of the estate,
 then locked the doors and searched the place using knives on the mattresses

 But the point is, Michael Jackson is more of a rancher than the fake president.
 Jackson didn't buy a ranch so super-lazy and super-stupid reporters would call it "a ranch."

 How to make billions in Iraq
  Halliburton struggles to manage costs

  Click  Here

 Halliburton estimated that the plant overhaul would cost $75.7 million, but in early September,
 Bush asked Congress for $125 million to do the job - a 40 percent price increase in just six weeks.

 That's $50,000,000 right in the B.F.E.E.'s pocket.
 I'm so old, I remember when the Democrats used to fight GOP excess.

        We love Dubya because he's so brave and honest!

 It's hard to do comedy about Halliburton, because much of comedy is exaggeration.
 But you can't exaggerate what Halliburton does because they've done it already

 That's another $50,000,000 that you and I will have to pay in taxes.

  The Best TV shows of 2003
  by the once respected New York Whore Times

 1. The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
 Comedy Central has the best late night talk show - better than Leno, Letterman or Conan O'Brien.
 Mr. Stewart, who is acidly funny about everything, describes Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman as the candidate
 for "people who want to vote for Bush but don't think he is Jewish enough."

 • Jon Stewart's Perfect Pitch 

 There's no doubt, Stewart is much, much funnier than Leno or Dave.
 One reason - he doesn't do five year old blow job jokes one after another.
 He's hungry and he works at comedy - he's not lazy like his super-rich, so-called "rivals."

 All praise to Jon Stewart.

 Pope pushes campaign against gay marriage
  Since Jesus was a liberal, why is the Pope a conservative?

  Click  Here

  Pope John Paul II pressed his campaign against gay unions Sunday, calling for greater
 defense of the institution of marriage between man and woman and saying a "misunderstood"
 sense of rights was altering it.

 The pope's comments came amid a Vatican campaign to crack down on same-sex unions,
 which have won legal boosts in recent months following landmark court decisions in Canada,
 Massachusetts and elsewhere granting increasing legal rights to gay couples.

 I'm going to say something positive about the Pope.
 (Religious readers are shuddering...)

 At least he's consistent in that he's against divorce, too.
 The joke Jon Stewart stole borrowed from bartcop.com  was a good one:
 The people most in favor of "saving" marriage are on their second or third wives.

 ...but then again, I've yet to hear the Pope demand zero tolerance for raping children.

 BartCop radio Show #19 - The Bill O'Reilly beatdown

 I'm not like most radio gasbag blowhards.
 I don't worship myself and I don't constantly wallow in my "greatness."

 Yesterday, Mrs Bart faintly hinted that she might be able to tolerate hearing some BartCop Radio.
 She has to live with my rants and outburts and screaming at the TV, so there's no real reason for her
 to want to hear BCR, so I'm thinking she wanted to hear Tommy Mack work his magic.

 Like an idiot, I put on Show 19 - the O'Reilly beatdown, (a non-Tommy show) and I couldn't believe the language.

 At one point, as I was smacking O'Reilly around, I said,
"Bill, you don't even have a sac to put balls in."
 which solicited an "Oh my," from Mrs. Bart.

 When I record a rant, I remember if there's some giant flub I need to go back and edit, but as a rule,
 I don't listen to the shows. So I was shocked and surprised whern I heard 19.  There was all kinds of
 words that most Americans use, but I don't think it's vulgar. Vulgar is calling Chelsea the White House dog.

 So if you listen to the shows in the members section or order the CDs via snail mail, you might want to
 listen to them when your parents or the kids aren't around first.  I don't use that language to shock,
 I use it because when I'm talking about a son of a bitch like Rush or O'Reilly - it just pops out.

 Expert Warned That Mad Cow Was Imminent

 So six weeks ago, Dr. Prusiner Sec of Agri Veneman's office with a message.
 "I went to tell her that what happened in Canada was going to happen in the United States,"
 Dr. Prusiner said. "I told her it was just a matter of time."

 Ms. Veneman's response (he said she did not share his sense of urgency) left him frustrated.
 That frustration soared this week after a cow in Washington State was tentatively found to
 have the disease. If the nation had increased testing and inspections, meat from that cow
 might never have entered the food chain, he said.

  president's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board says the panel has concluded the White House made
 "no deliberate effort to fabricate" the claim that Iraq had tried to buy uranium in Africa. Instead, the
  claim was written into the president's speech as part of an effort "to grab onto something affirmative"
  about Saddam Hussein's alleged nuclear program."

 Clark Focuses on Southern Votes

  Click  Here

 The New Hampshire primary is less than a month away, but Wesley Clark will spend the waning days
 of 2003 far from the North. Instead, he will barnstorm across eight Southern states, even though most
 of them do not hold their primary elections until well into March and many Democrats expect their
 presidential nominee to have been chosen by then.

 The unusual campaign swing is meant to demonstrate what General Clark's campaign says is his strength
 in a region where Democrats have not fared too well in recent national elections and thus to portray him
 as the best alternative to another candidate, Howard Dean,

 This is a very, very smart move.
 Maybe Clinton is the stealth director of Clark's campaign, but Clark seems to know that Dean is going to
 peak too soon or somehow blow the hueueuege lead he has in this race. Like a good poker player,
 Clark is sitting back, waiting for his chance and he's betting that his time will come.

 You can't win without winning the South.
 Clark knows this, but does Dean?
 Has Dean spent any time on the South?

 Maybe it's buried in the mail, but I still haven't heard how Dean will beat Bush.
 To my eyes, all Clark has to do is stand there.
 The debate moderator might even call him "General."

"You just don't know how great it is to have

   -- Pickles Bush, talking about her brain dead husband who did not write the "Roses are red" poem!

 VCR Alert

 Tonight's repeat of the Vanessa Marcil Show (NBC calls is Las Vegas) is a good one.
 She wears those half shirts better than anyone in Hollywood.

 You start off with Sonny Corleone, probably the most famous hothead in cinema history.
 He's in charge of security at the casino and he's ex-CIA, probably part of the B.F.E.E.

 Some scumbag drugs and kidnaps his daughter and tries to rape her, the fabulous (acts like Tom Cruise) Molly Sims.
 This makes Sonny very, very angry.
 There are security cameras everywhere, so Sonny gets to witness her abduction after the fact.

 At one point, the scumbag is trying to move her and Molly puts some Kung Fu on his ass and Sonny says to himself,
"That's my girl."
 Those three words are reason enough to watch, but wait till you see what Sonny does to the guy.

 Sonny and Freckles take the scumbag out in the desert, mob-style.  Sonny says some mean things
 to the scumbag, then puts a very small (I'm surprised) gun to his head while Freckles begs him not
 to blow the guy's brains all over his nice, Ivy League suit.

 It's the best acting I've seen from Jimmy Caan in a decade.
 When Sonny wants to show anger, he's got the right tools to do it.

 Hey, it's not The Godfather, it's not The Sopranos, it's not even Joan of Arcadia,
 but every TV season should have a show about Las Vegas.
 Sonny and Vanessa Marcil make this show worth watching.

 Right after, NBC demonstrates their funny way of presenting hit TV shows.
 They premier these hit shows (Celeb Poker, Queer Eye) on Bravo, which nobody watches,
 then they repeat them on NBC which everyone knows how to find.

 Tonight it's Celebrity Poker, starring The West Wing.
 They play poker like it's their first game ever, but it's still kinda fun.
 If you want to learn how to play really bad poker, watch this show tonight.
 Wouldn't it be something if Martin Sheen showed up at Pokerfest 2004?

 The front page of today's USA Today recalls the superstars we lost this year.

 Celia Cruz?

 I'm sorry, but I have a rule:
 If I've never heard of you, you can't be a superstar.

 Bob Hope was an American pillar, as was Hepburn, but who is Celia Cruz?
 Oh sure, I could look her up, but who has the time?

 (If Celia Cruz is your favorite, don't get hysterical and write a snippy, hissy-fit e-mail.
  Whoever she is, she doesn't belong in the same category as Hope and Hepburn.)

 The government's public-relations drive to build a favorable impression abroad - particularly

 Pardon my French, but because of Bush, the whole world fucking hates us.
 You can't rape a woman and kill her husband, then buy her an ice cream cone and make everything OK.

 Bush was very clear before he bombed Baghdad:
"We're going to murder Iraq with or without the UN, but either way, we're taking him out."

 Dean: Dems doomed if he loses nomination

 Dean said Sunday that the hundreds of thousands of people drawn to politics
 by his campaign may stay home if he doesn't win the Demo nomination,
 dooming the Democratic Party in the fall campaign against the never-elected murderer.

"If I don't win the nomination, where do you think those million and a half people, half a million
 on the Internet, where do you think they're going to go?  I don't know where they're going to go.
 They're certainly not going to vote for a conventional Washington politician."

 Hmmm, ...isn't it a little early for Dean to be endorsing Wesley Clark?
