"Judge Laurence Silberman, George Bush's nominee
to co-chair the commission investigating
U.S. intelligence on Iraq, knows quite a bit about the murky intersection between facts and ideology.
The senior judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington has been near the febrile center of the
largest political scandals of the past two decades, from the rumored "October surprise" of 1980 and
the Iran-contra trials to the character assassination of Anita Hill and the impeachment of President Clinton.
Whenever right-wing conspiracies swing into action, Silberman is there."

Wesley Clark (news - web sites), the novice politician with four-star military credentials,
abandoned his presidential bid Tuesday after two third-place finishes in the South.
The news of Clark's departure broke shortly
after he spoke to supporters, promising to keep
waging fights on behalf of Democratic causes. Clark didn't know at the time he had finished third
in Tennessee, along with his third-place finish in Virginia. The results sealed his fate.
New to politics, Clark may still have a
future. At 59, he is young enough for another race and,
with his military experience, he might fit on a wartime Democratic ticket.
Kerry/Clark could beat Big Oil Dick and
Little Oil Bunnypants.
It may be our last chance until President Clinton wins in 2008.
Virus Warning for Windows Users - Very Serious
Message added by Marc Perkel - Host for Bartcop
Microsoft has yet another very serious security flaw that gives anyone
with the right know how total access to your computer. I
don't know all the details - but it might be the biggest one yet. If you remember the SoBig and Code Red viruses last fall - this one
will similar in that it doesn't require you to get email for you to be attacked or hacked. Your computer can be hacked into and
viruses installed without you doing anything to cause it to happen.
I say "will be" because right now there is no virus - yet. But the flaw
is there and it will be a matter of days before someone writes
a virus to take advantage of the flaw. And - your anti-virus software will have no effect. Microsoft has posted a patch and that is
how you protect yourself - download and install that patch.
Here's the link to Microsoft's Windows Update:
You must use Microsort Explorer to install it.
I am also asking that those of you who have blogs and newsletters and high
traffic web sites post this warning on your front page
and include it in your newsletters. The best defense to this virus is to stop it before it begins. As you all know - this virus will affect
non-windows users in that the new viruses turn windows computer into spam robots and we are still getting the bounce messages
from the last virus. Let's see if we can stop this before it starts by first - patch your computer now - then - tell everyone to patch
theirs. You can cut and paste this warning into your blog or newsletter.
"Rush Limbaugh has once again come to the rescue.
This beacon of intelligence has explained
why homosexuals should not be allowed to marry: Noah Webster says they can't. It seems that
when defining marriage, Mr. Webster described it as being between "a man and a woman."
So there you have it. Homosexuals can't marry because a man in 1840 excluded gays from
his definition of marriage. Who says Republicans aren't a progressive party?
But let's give poor Rush the benefit of the doubt and write off that as a side effect
from the painkillers (does that joke ever stop giving?)."

Bill O'Reilly said on Tuesday he was now skeptical about the Bush administration
and apologized to viewers for supporting prewar claims that Iraq had WMDs.
"I was wrong. I am not pleased about it
at all and I think all Americans should be concerned about this,"
O'Reilly said in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America."
"What do you want me to do, go over and kiss the
camera?" asked O'Reilly, who had promised rival
ABC last year he would publicly apologize if weapons were not found.
O'Reilly said he was "much more skeptical
about the Bush administration now" since David Kay said
he did not think Saddam had any weapons of mass destruction.

"The soldier's girlfriend, who was weeping
quietly in the cold rain, had more sense than all her purported
betters in this city. Informed that the mayor of New York had just made a huge and bold move on the
White House and asked for citizenship for her dead soldier, who was a Dominican, she said at the wake,
"What good is it now? He can't use it." He sure can't. He was Private Luis Moreno. He was 19 years old.
They were loading him in his box into a hearse for the ride to a cemetery forever. She also had a question:
"Why is he dead?"...On Friday, in the deep slush in front of church in the Bronx, in so much sadness in the rain,
I could hear the past that got us here, of George Bush, just before we invaded Iraq, bringing up "Dad" when
he mentioned Saddam Hussein. "He tried to kill Dad, you know." He made it a personal family matter, and
the Bushes clearly think they are a royal family and if you threaten one of them, then the entire country must take up arms."

Shaken father writes to president
With heavy heart, tears in my eyes and a home full of sorrow, I pick up my pen to write you
about a brave soldier, 2nd Lt. Seth J. Dvorin, U.S. Army. My son was killed in Iraq on Feb. 3, 2004 fighting in a war.
He joined the Army in an effort to serve his country. And serve his country he did. Seth made the ultimate sacrifice.
Burying a child will no doubt be the hardest
task that his mother and I shall ever have to do. The one question I have,
and the one question I would like you to answer, is, "Why did my son and every other soldier that was killed, maimed
and wounded have to suffer settling your vendetta?"
Subject: Shame on you
Bart, I'm begining to think you are like the Republican pollsters that only post the results they like.
I have sent in two posts and neither have appeared on the page of "who and why".
I never figured you to be dishonest about this.
Bart, I sent 3 e-mails to the "Who I'm Voting For And Why" and not one of them showed up.
I know you didn't like my pro-gun position but censoring out pro-gun people is not helping the Democratic cause.
(I'm pro-gun. I carry a baby Glock. Why would I censor a pro-gun letter?)
The Republicans have been successful in
getting Howard Dean knocked out and Kerry put in his place.
Kerry has so much baggage that Karl Rove will have it easy when the time comes.
Also, the excitement that the Democrats had will not hold for Kerry.
Why don't people start out nice?
There's always time to get snippy if I'm a bad guy, but this was unnecessary.
I have 753 e-mails in the "Who I'm Voting for" folder, 379 are
We probably published 200 of those, which means 500 people are pissed off at Ol' Bart.
No wonder so many lefty web sites burn out - we spend half our time fighting Democrats.

The Debate over Responsibility for the War
In recent weeks, the man in charge at the White House has lost a great deal of his reputation and support.
His last victory, the capture of Saddam Hussein, was quickly forgotten. The carefully staged State of the Union
address on Capitol Hill proved to be a propaganda flop, and even fellow Republicans criticized the Bush budget
proposal for 2005 presented last Monday as an irresponsible "fantasy budget." It gets even worse: According to
a Gallup poll conducted last week, the sitting president had fallen behind John Kerry by a margin of 46 to 53 percent.
And the election is only nine months away.

The Blogroll is on the official blog site: http://campaign.forclark.com/
"They've spent months on the campaign trail
criticizing George W. Bush and his reckless policies,
when in the 107th Congress, both men voted with the president almost 70 percent of the time.
Now, I'm no politician, but that doesn't seem to add up. I don't believe you can have it both ways.
I don't think you can stand with Bush one day and than against him once you decide to run for president."
-- Wesley Clark, calling as tutu a tutu
Bush's public support dropped sharply over the past month, especially among
older voters, political independents and people in the Midwest, AP says.
Bush's approval rating stood at 47 percent,
down from 56 percent approval
just a month ago. Half, or 50 percent, said they disapproved in the latest poll.
Bush's approval rating is the same as his
father's at this stage in his presidency
12 years ago before he lost to Bill Clinton
In January, Trilane A. Ludwig, 24, called his mother from jail
in Clark County, Ala.,
and asked that she grab the $500 from his wallet at home and come bail him out.
As he almost certainly knew, the $500 was oversized, poorly made counterfeit bills,
which put him in even more trouble.
And in December, Tony Lee Hinrichs, 40, was arrested in Mesa,
Ariz., based on video
of him in the act of burglarizing the Extreme Surveillance shop; Hinrichs appeared not to
be aware that the company is a security firm that might be expected to have cameras set up.

Bush, cocaine and the mystery six months
The gaps in Bush's TANG records that do not match the records from Denver
(because ARF points do NOT count toward duty at TANG)
Again this fits time frame of Bush being
suspended and grounded from the National Guard
for failure to take required military annual physical, with drug testing- which had just been implemented
Bush looks to have been disciplined by his
assignment to the ARF. ARF is the reserves, and among
other things it's where members of the National Guard are sent for disciplinary reasons. ARF duty is
NOT counted as official duty by the Texas Air National Guard.
Subject: Janet's boob
As for Janet's Boob: I don't really think
of it as guilty, but here's my observation. I worked in the theatre for
--wardrobes don't malfunction perfectly like that. The cup was intended to break away--the red fringe on the cup
is clearly a fringe, not a brassiere. I'm a gay guy, but can't my straight brothers back me up here that if you tried,
you could not rip just one cup off a brassiere without like breakin' someone's back or something?
Any woman out there ever worn a bra that
would break so neatly like that? It was planned and they both knew
what they were supposed to do, in my humble opinion. Add to that all the pre-publicity about special surprise guests
and Janet's gonna shock you--and something I heard this weekend, that the international feed of the Bowl, a live feed
as well, did not include the boobshot. Someone, then, exporting the Bowl to foreign countries who haven't made a bed
of filth for themselves such as is true of Amurkuh land of scandalous television--someone high up enough knew to warn
the dude controlling the feed to black out or switch cameras or something at the moment the boob was gonna pop out
because there are cultures out there for whom it would be a good deal more than simply the scandal du jour.
(Additionally, if your breast is not going to be exposed, why do you put the cute little "protector" on it?) I still have
to say, though, there's no way that wasn't planned just from having seen the footage--the costume was rigged to
"reveal" just where it revealed and if you think that red fringe was a torn brassiere, gimme a break.
Another thing: I think of you every time
I listen to LeShow, Harry Shearer's weekly radio satire show.
It's fantastic, Bart. It's funny and names the names like nobody's bidness. You can find archived episodes
at leshow.com or harryshearer.com. (He's the Harry Shearer of the Simpsons fame.)
All best to you. Hammer on, Bart.
I have guesses, but no answers.
The bra was meant to break away. They worked on a "costume reveal," and I'm sure
Janet has wardrobe people on her payroll so that's not much of a mystery.
Why does she wear a nipple ring?
I don't know - why do they make nipple rings? For women to wear, I'll guess.
Her story is that the top layer was supposed
to come off, not both layers.
For all we know, Justin messed up and grabbed both layers
For me, ther deciding point is - would Janet
pull that stunt knowing how many
kids and grandparents were watching? If she did it in the last hour of the Grammys
or some music awards show, I might buy the intentional scenario, but not the Superbowl.
I guess we'll never know for sure.

newspaper says Al Qaeda has nukes
...but don't worry, Bush says he's a "war president."
I wish he had told us that in the summer of 2000.
A pan-Arab newspaper said Sunday that al Qaeda bought tactical nuclear weapons
from Ukraine in 1998 and is storing them in safe places for possible use.
There was no independent corroboration of
the report, which appeared in the newspaper
al-Hayat under an Islamabad dateline and cited sources close to al Qaeda.
The newspaper said al Qaeda bought the weapons
in suitcases in a deal arranged when
Ukrainian scientists visited the Afghan city of Kandahar in 1998. The city was then a
stronghold of the Taliban movement, which was allied with al Qaeda.

I see Blood boy Friday.
I gave them four vials ten days ago and they're going to tell me what my problem is.
It's weird - having an appointment with a guy who's gonna change
To me, this is every fucking thing in the world. As an agnostic, I don't get "a reward" or a
"second chance" or "72 virgins" or any of that bullshit when I finally reach Boot Hill.
This guy might tell me I have an infection that's taking
care of itself,
he might tell me I have a condition that needs attention and medication,
or the bastard might tell me I have 90 days to live, and what totally kills me about the deal,
is to him, I'm just his One O'Clock. He's probably almost as busy a man as I am.
It took fifteen days for him to fit me in, and he's going to tell me what the odds are of me seeing 2005.
Of course, my first line of defense is to tell cancer to suck me.
If cancer could talk, I'd invite it into the chat room and kick
it's sorry ass.
But it can't talk, so I'll depend on my gambler's luck and attempt to kick this problem in the balls,
but whatever happens, I'll go knowing I had a good time every goddamn day I was here.
I had a really bad day in 1970 and I decided then, I was going
to have fun each and every
fucking day afterwards for the rest of my life and I've pretty much followed thru on that.

Everyone always talks about what a fine,
upstanding American John McCain is.
The truth is, he's punked out for Bush ever since Bush and friends beat him with a dirty stick in South Carolina in 2000.

Gore: Bush Betrayed the U.S.
NASHVILLE, Feb. 8 - In a withering critique of the Bush administration, Al Gore accused Bush
of betraying the country by using the Sept. 11 attacks as a justification for the invasion of Iraq.
"He betrayed this country!" Mr. Gore shouted into
the microphone at a rally of Tennessee Democrats.
"He played on our fears. He took America on an ill-conceived foreign adventure dangerous to our troops,
an adventure preordained and planned before 9/11 ever took place."
The speech had several hundred Democrats roaring their approval for Gore.

All the Democratic nominee needs to do to
win is stand up at the convention during the acceptance speech
and ask the young and women of this nation to join the armed services, and say that no draft is needed.
The rest will follow. Our military is overextended and weak. Our reserves are being abused and the system
is being destroyed, and the careers and lives of reservists are being destroyed too.
Bush should have done this long ago if he
believed this was necessary for our protection. The nominee should
question why no call for volunteers has been uttered from the commander in chief's mouth when the reserves
have been called up and stop loss orders issued.

Bush and Kerry are both graduates of Yale. In addition, both were members of Skull & Bones,
the most exclusive secret society/fraternity in America, and prime breeding ground for the CIA
and Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).
But wait; there's more. John Kerry's wife,
Teresa, was married to Pennsylvania Senator John Heinz.
Guess what college he attended. Answer: Yale. And guess what notorious fraternity he pledged to. Skull & Bones!
Now ask yourself: what are the odds that both presidential candidates went to the same school, belonged to the
same secret society, and that one of their wives was married to TWO different Skull & Bonesmen?
It's infinitesimal off the charts.

I have never been more angry at Michael
Moore than when he (and thousands of other Naderites)
pretended in 2000 that Al Gore and George Bush would take us down the same lousy path.
I (another Clark supporter) have never been more proud of Michael Moore than when he wrote this:
You Say Deserter, I Say More Dessert...
When the press heard me use that word "deserter," though, the bells and whistles went off, for this was one
of those stories they knew they had ignored -- and now it was rearing its ugly, truthful head on a very public stage.
Without a single other word from me other than the d-word, they immediately got so defensive that it looked to
many viewers like they - the press - maybe had something to hide. After all, when I called Bush a deserter,
how did they know I wasn't referring to how he has deserted the 43 million Americans who have no health coverage?
Why didn't they assume I was talking about how Bush is a deserter because he has deserted the working people of
this country (who have lost 3 million jobs since he's taken office)? Why wasn't it obvious to them that I was pointing
out how Bush had deserted our constitution and Bill of Rights as he tries to limit freedom of speech and privacy rights
for law-abiding citizens?
Instead, they have created the brouhaha
over Bush's military record, often without telling their audience what
charges are. It seems all they want to do is to get Clark or me -- or you -- to shut up. "We have never investigated this
and so we want you to apologize for bringing it up!" Ha ha ha.
