"According to Cheney, Clarke wasn't in the
loop and wanted a more prominent position.
Clarke probably was out of the loop. He wasn't part of the political team. He was just
the guy who knew about counter-terrorism. That's all."

Question: Is Susan Estrich (She put Dukakis in that
damn tank) still one of us?
I see her on FOX News a lot, and she seems to "play ball" with them a little too much.
The only was you can get on FOX News a lot is if you're willing to trash the Democrats.
I've seen her do it and I don't like it.
If you're going to criticize the Dems for lack of sac - that's
But Estrich agress with the FOX Nazi's when they trash the Democrats.
Also, Vic the Racist loooooves Estrich - that should tell you something.
The Bush White House scaled back the struggle against al-Qaida after taking office in 2001
and spurned suggestions that it retaliate for the USS Cole because "it happened on Clinton's watch,"
a former top terrorism adviser testified Wednesday.
The Clinton administration had "no higher
priority" than combatting terrorists while Bush made it
"an important issue but not an urgent issue" prior to 9-11, said Clarke, who advised both presidents.
Clarke's turn in the witness chair transformed
a painstaking, bipartisan probe of 9-11 into a nationally
televised beatdown of the never-elected Monkey on the terror issue at the core of his re-election campaign.
It was truly stunning.
This Clarke guy can answer questions like Bill Clinton, Hillary or Wesley Clark.
One dude asked Clarke to clear up a question about armed Predators vs unarmed Predators,
and why Clinton used just the unarmed Predators - but Bush got to use the armed Predators.
and it reminded me of when Pete Dominici tried to smart off to Harold Ickes.
By the time Clarke was done, he asked, "Does
that answer your question?" and the GOP dude was
so shaken he said, "It sure does... and I'm damn sorry I asked the question in the first place."
Swear to Koresh, Clarke really was that
Do you watch Alias on ABC on Sunday nights?
Clarke comes off like Sydney's dad.
What ever the opposite of a clueless Monkey
is, that's what Clarke seemed to be yesterday for hours.
Team Bush keeps painting Clarke ais "a little bit nutty and a littler bit slutty," but so far, it's not sticking.
He's so sharp, you might even put him in
charge of America's defense against terrorism, which is the job
he held under our last legally-elected president, but then Bush came along and said, "Clarkie boy, your job's
not very important," and demoted his ass - and then came 9-11.
Wednesday, Jon Stewart was aghast - he said,
"If you know someone who might've TIVO'd that - get a copy,"
and yes, I got the whole thing preserved on VHS.
The best parts are in Show 32.
"Bush never fails to remind the rest of the
world that 3,000 innocent Americans were killed on 9/11.
Yet America refuses to count civilian casualties in Iraq. Bush still rails about a Saddam Hussein who
"tortured children in front of their parents." Yet America stiffed thousands of Iraqis who watched family
members burn and bleed to death because of our invasion. Bush says that unlike the terrorists,
"We believe in the values that uphold the dignity of life." Yet the value America places on American
victims of foreign terrorism is 4,580 times more than the average compensation for Iraqi victims of
premeditated American violence. That gap and the ease with which Bush made redneck jokes with
his soldiers is a stunning clue why he found it so easy to invade Iraq."
--Derrick Z. Jackson, Attribution
Commemorating the first anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, George W. Bush gave the
American people a glimpse of his vision of the future: a grim world where a near endless
war is waged against forces of evil by forces loyal to Bush who represents what is good.
So to Bush, the "war on terror" is a fight
to the finish. Eliminate everyone who would or
might engage in terrorism before they destroy civilization and impose slavery on the rest of us.
To Bush's supporters, this black-and-white analysis represents "moral clarity." To others
around the world, it is taking on the look of madness.

Kerry: We need a Truthful Leader
John Kerry said the country deserves leadership that "tells the truth"
as he took over the mantle of the Democratic Party at a unity dinner
Thursday with Clinton, Carter and most of his former foes.
Earlier in the day, Kerry was endorsed by
his harshest primary rival, Howard Dean.
He said Kerry's decorated service in Vietnam made him the better man to lead the country's military.
Clinton, whose performance somewhat upstaged Kerry's speech, lauded Kerry for fighting in the war.
"In the Vietnam era, which marked us all, most
young men, including the president,
the vice president and me, most of us could have gone to Vietnam and didn't go," Clinton said.
"And John Kerry said, `Send me.' "
I think Clinton showed a lot of class.

Paltrow reports that Bush has twice told a clumsy joke about the 9/11 attacks to audiences of supporters. "I was sitting outside
the classroom, waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower - the TV was obviously on," he said in December 2002.
"And I used to fly myself, and I said, 'Well, there's one terrible pilot. '"
Never happened. The first collision was, of course, not televised live. Amateur video surfaced many hours after the fact.
Important? No, except as it indicates a
curious propensity of Bush's to fabricate his personal role in events.
A bit odder was
the White House insistence that he'd left a Florida classroom within seconds of the second tower's being struck. In fact,
he stayed seven long minutes reading a storybook to schoolchildren before being hustled off to Air Force One.
By themselves, these discrepancies mean
little, but they do add up. And why, given the CIA's warnings of impending
airline hijackings in August 2001, as reported by Paltrow, were there no fighter jets armed and alerted to protect New York or,
incredibly, Washington on that terrible day? Questions like these torture victims' families angered by Bush's seeming determination
to stonewall his own 9/11 Commission.

U.S. Stocks Continue Plunge
Technology shares were hardest hit as all the major indexes notched new lows for 2004.
A selloff late in the session pushed stocks
down after a day of seesaw trading as news reports
quoted witnesses as saying Israeli naval gunboats opened fire off Gaza City's shore.
In the past few session, stocks have been
hit by worries that global violence may spread again
to U.S. soil, helping to push major indexes to their lowest levels since December.
Investors still have security fears in the
forefront of their minds after the Madrid bombings,
said Peter Dunay, chief markets strategist at brokerage Wall Street Access.
"So when you get headlines that sort of
reinforce that, it will make those that are saying,
'Should I be in the market?' start leaning toward 'Probably not,'" he said.
BFEE can't make any money in peacetime
Right now, they need the spotlight off Iraq, so let's start a multi-headed Jihad in other places.
The price of oil is going up, up, up

Subject: Bad president
Bart and Sam,
This is my first time e-mailing you, so
I hope you receive my verbal contribution. I really enjoy your website.
Thank you for your tireless efforts in showing the world the wretched Bush administration.
In particular, I wanted to comment on the picture of Bush rubbing the head of HUD Secretary Jackson.
Just a bit of levity by poking fun of Jackson's
Making fun of his height?
Maybe, but it looks very strange and somewhat condescending don't you think?
Perhaps Bush was just saying "good boy"
to Jackson, an African-American.
Seems like the kind of thing they'd do in Texas.
My god, Bush is an insensitive, heartless prick.
EB, it's worse than you think.
I'm going to be honest, here, and sometime people get very upset
when I speak the truth.
In the South, at least in Arkansas, there's a saying - "You rub a nigger's head for good luck."
I can only see two options here:
Bush is the biggest moron of all time and his staff won't tell him this is a horrible racial slur,
Bush is sending a Rush-like signal
to his supporters at the KKK and Aryan Nation
that as long as he's in charge, the "darkies" are going to know their place.
I'm more inclined to go with Option One, but why doesn't Condi
If Bush put his hands on Condi, would she suggest he remove them?
Or are we still in Strom's 1922, where your owner can treat you like property?
"If George Bush thinks his deceptive rationale
for going to war is a laughing matter, then he's even
more out of touch than we thought. Unfortunately for the president, this is not a joke. 585 American
soldiers have been killed in Iraq in the last year, 3,354 have been wounded and there's no end in sight.
George Bush sold us on going to war with Iraq based on the threat of weapons of mass destruction.
But we still haven't found them, and now he thinks that's funny?"

Hits Microsoft With Record $613M Fine
Why do they have to cheat? Why can't they compete fairly?
The European Union declared Microsoft guilty of abusing its "near monopoly" with Windows
to foil competitors in other markets and hit them with a record $613 million fine Wednesday.
The EU's antitrust authority said that "because
the illegal behavior is still ongoing," it was also
demanding changes in the way Microsoft operates in Europe, with the aim of improving competition globally.
Seems like the BFEE, Wal-Mart, the vulgar
Pigboy and Microsoft - they all work the same way.
Have have all the power and wealth in the world - but they have to have more.
Cheney and Bush were going to die super-rich
no matter what they spent or how long they lived,
...but it was worth stealing an election to empty the Teasury to get more money and more power?
What's the point?
Remember the story of Manuel in Ecuador?
Manuel owned a nice shrimp boat (we'll say) that made him $3000 per day.
In Ecuador, $3000 goes a long, long way, so Manuel only had to work one day a month.
He spent the rest of his time with his wife and kids, whom he loved very much.
A Republican on vacation in Ecuador urged
Manuel to work harder, and Manuel asked why.
"If you worked every day, soon you'd have enough money to have a fleet of boats, and a few
years after that, you could retire and spend more time with your wife and kids," he said.
Manuel replied, "But
I'm doing that now ...and you said I should stop doing that."
I understand hard work and reaching for
your goals, yadda, yadda.
But once you have your $300 million in the bank, what drives a Republican to get up early
the next morning and figure out the best way to slit the financial throats of his competitors?
Have you ever noticed...
Half the time the talk radio nazis say,
"Clinton had a chance to catch bin Laden,
but he chose to play by some silly rules of evidence instead of killing this suspect."
But then five minutes later, when you remind them that Bush can't
catch bin Laden, they reply,
"He's just one man, killing bin Laden isn't going to solve this problem."
Subject: Things you haven't gotten to yet
I'm sending you a link to my blog today because I have three things I haven't seen you cover:
1) DeLay may have to step down because of fundraising violations.
2) Bush has stopped kicking gays out
of the military because no one is signing up:
Don't ask, don't tell discharges are down 40% in 2002 and another 19 % in 2003.
3) Bremer appointed a communist
to sit on the Iraqi governing council. Doesn't that make Bush
the first American President to install a communist leader in a country under our defacto control?
Tim, I believe 2 and 3, but Delay is too
powerful, too big a friend to Smirk and the Supremes.

Pope Says Sundays for God, Not Sports
"When Sunday loses its fundamental meaning and becomes subordinate to a
secular concept of 'weekend' dominated by such things as entertainment and sport,
people stay locked within a horizon so narrow that they can no longer see the heavens,"
the pontiff said in a speech to Australian bishops.
Uh, ...excuse me, ...Your Pontiff, but most people have to work
5 or 6 days a week.
They don't put the NFL on Wednesdays at noon because America is busy working on Wednesdays.
Do you think proclamations like this is why the Catholic Church
is in severe trouble?

Subject: Your IQ of 64? It could be 65
Maybe you DO have ESP. Today
I heard a Colin Powell response re: Richard Clarke
where he say's that Bush didn't any longer want to only "swat at flys" in regard to Bin Laden.
Then, I backtracked to yesterday's Bart edition and saw the fly swatter cartoon.
Also heard the NPR "In God we Trust" report.
Gotta give (Newdow) credit arguing his own case.
I went to the same school you did (not literally) and luckily it was not as wretched as yours.
They simply looked down on us. Unless you were a big shot's kid. Belittled, I'd say.
We took a big step.
We took a big, big step tonight.
We took a big, big step tonight in BartCop Radio ...probably.
Here's what up.
I can read your minds - I know you think Ol' Bart just
got soft on the hueueueuge income
generated by the dozens of subscribers of BCR and now only publishes at leisure - but that's not it.
The biggest problem with production (especially with radio) is
that there's just too much to produce.
If the sun is down, I have 2-3 VCRs recording. When I hear something funny, I hit the "Index" feature for
later retrieval. Trouble is, "later" and "retrieval" sometimes get foggy, so I invented a system - and I tried it
tonight for the first time and I think it works.
I have a dozen blank tapes next to me next to the two serialized
When someone says something funny, I pop that tape out and start a stack o' tapes with raw material.
At the end of the night, I back those tapes up two minutes each, and record ALL OF THEM on the
computer as a single wav file maked "fix for tomoro," ...and tonight's virgin run brought excellent results.
I got some Lewis Black, some Al Franken on Jon, and the beginnings of the Colin Quinn Beatdown.
Trust me - Colin Quinn has it coming to him and I'm someone of whom he wants no part.
Sometimes, when I dismember some ignorant
linkhead, I feel all guilty and stuff,
but when I dismember Colin Quinn - it won't be one of those times.
Remember - there's a rule:
The stronger you feel about a subject or topic, the better armed you have to be.
Quinn says the "anti-Patriot Act crowd"
endangers America, and besides the beatdown he's got coming,
Colin better hope he doesn't find himself on a three-hour flight next to me when I have my voice recorder.
...back to the subject,
This low-tech breakthru should expotentially magnify our
(Learned that fancy word watching old Star Trek.)
What did Frank say?
"Necessity is the Mother of Invention."
This had to happen so it did.
I'm a man in a position to cut corners.
I'm a man in a position to take risks.
I'm a man in a position to make "later," "sooner."
I said in Show 32 that by Show 50, we'd rock.
...we can't wait.
(That's my Michael Corleone impression.)

Subject: Why I subscribed to BartCop Radio
You know, I remember exactly why I joined,
Bart. I found your site on the 'mosthated.com' site
and checked you out. At that time I was brimming over with hate. I felt so helpless and ANGRY.
Your site lets me deal with that anger with the most potent tool we have as a [*perceived*] minority: Humor.
Evil has -NO POWER- when it is laughed at.
Al Franken and Tom Tomorrow prove that with valor. And there is nothing that gives me more pleasure than
taking away the power of mean, evil people by laughing at their pathetic attempts at being the next ceasar of the world.
And WHY on earth did I give an internet
First time, because you were listening to crap I couldn't bear-like Pigboy and Ann ********-er and telling me what
they are spewing. Those slime get me ill. I would gladly pay someone else to listen to that filth. I still feel a little guilty....
Second time??? Well, that's easy-you finally
bought a Mac and won't be having all those Microsoft glitches that
conveniently keep you from being able to diss the microsoft puppetboy-Bush. I was proud of you, man.
Thanks for diving into the filth everyday,
Bart. You expose so much and you are a place where one can go in a ******
world and just be with one's own. Because we are all in this together. See, it's good that we're all so spread out in different states.
Otherwise they would've invented a reason to bomb us, see? But now we're getting back the way they fear the most:
legally-with a democratic vote that we'll shove right up their *** . Ha-Ha.

"This Ass-monkey is just another
one-term loser just like his Daddy."
Clarke Grabs Center Stage at 9/11 Hearing
For a dozen years, he worked quietly in the shadows of the White House. But Richard Clarke stole the spotlight
at an extraordinary series of hearings into 9-11, claiming Bush hadn't done enough to protect the country from terrorists.
A counterterrorism adviser to the past three
presidents, Clarke accused Bush scaling back the campaign against
bin Laden before the attacks and undermining the fight against terrorism by invading Iraq Many of those attending
were relatives of Sept. 11 victims. Clarke began his testimony by apologizing to them.
"Your government failed you, those entrusted with
protecting you failed you and I failed you. We tried hard,
but that doesn't matter because we failed," he said. "And for that failure, I would ask - once all the facts
are out - for your understanding and for your forgiveness."
Did you know...
While Richard Clarke was giving his extremely damning report about
the truth of 9-11 under oath,
FOX News (R-Spawn of Satan) cut away from this live testimony to undercut Clarke's credibility
by playing some spin Clarke gave reporters last August, I believe.
I was in the car so I'm not sure exactly what Clarke was saying
at the time, but when Clarke answered
that August-spin charge, his answer was so damn good the 9-11 families stood and cheered out loud.
FOX News, taking
from the direct, under-oath
testimony by the eye witness to spin the
facts in such a way to make Bush appear more favorable. So much for "We report - you decide."
My dawgs called back.
They want me back to give them another lesson in Texas Hold'em.
Bart has showtunes from Oklahoma going off in his
"When the wind comes screaming down the plains..."
BTW, Wednesday's World Poker Tour from Paris...?
I don't mean to bash the French, ...but they can't play Texas Hold 'em.
They knew the rules, but they didn't fully understand how to play.
They even dealt the cards in a French way (not good in Texas Hold 'em)
They also don't understand that "the flop" means you flop the
three cards over
and then spread them out. No, they dealt the flop 1, ...2, ...3 - that's no good.
Not only that, but they play with square chips - that's not how you play poker.
Most importantly, they seem to not understand the nuances of No
Limit Hold 'em betting.
They bet like there was a limit, so there were fewer pre-Fourth Street showdowns.
I wonder how much a cheapo ticket to paris would cost?
Do you have an opinion?
Do any GOP impressions?
Then listen for your call on...
You have two minutes to spit your bit.

Tyco Corruption Case Veers Toward Mistrial
The corruption case against two former Tyco crooks hurtled toward a mistrial on Friday,
as the splintered jury told the judge it did not believe it could keep deliberating in good faith.
Judge Michael Obus, responding to the latest note delivered by the jury, said he was not
optimistic that the trial would go past Friday and said the situation among jurors had clearly worsened.
"This is not a hung jury note...it's something
worse," Obus said. "Something else is going on here."
CNN reports the jury room has turned "poisonous."
It's going to look really bad for Bush's justice department if they nail Martha Stewart
and let these TYCO crooks - who stole hundreds of millions - go free.
