 Dueling Quotes

"The Republicans are coming to town. Make nice."
   --Ed Koch, former Dem turned Bush whore, asking New Yorkers to treat them with kindness,   Attribution

"If you see a Republican, give 'em a piece of your mind. They want us to hold our tongues.
  It's a physical impossibility."
   --Sean Wilentz, a Princeton history professor, reacting to the 'Make Nice' campaign Attribution

 Anyone know why Koch turned whore?

 Giuliani scolds 9-11 panel
  Tells panel this is no time to play the blame game
  Translation: Clinton's not involved, so forget the investigations and just move on

  Click  Here

 One day after his police and fire chiefs were grilled over their Sept. 11 response, Giuliani
 told the 9-11 panel that their priority should be preventing a new attack, not assigning blame.

"Our enemy is not each other, but the terrorists who attacked us," Giuliani said. He acknowledged
 there were "terrible mistakes" made on Sept. 11, but attributed that to the unprecedented circumstances.

 I don't really know enough about this to get deep into it, but this is the standard GOP excuse.
"If we had know that Saudi hijackers were going to crash 2 planes into the WTC
  the morning of 9-11, we would have done everything possible to prevent it."

 That sounds all well and good, but did they not have ANY disaster response ready?

 Why couldn't the firemen talk to the cops?
 Why couldn't the cops talk to the emergency operators?
 Why couldn't the emergency operators talk to the firemen?

 Maybe if Bush had shared with the nation that a big attack was coming, the NYPD and FDNY
 could have taken a closer look at their incompatable radio situation and taken steps to correct it.
 BUT, that might've interfered with Bush's monthlong vacation.

 Isn't this the same problem we have on a federal level?
 The CIA won't talk to the FBI and vice versa?
 That macho, "we don't share" crap cost how many lives in 2001?

 As far as I know, the same problems exist - nothing has changed.
 Another failure of leadership from America's worst president ever.

"The two times I think I have been most humiliated in my life was standing
  in a big room, naked as a jaybird with about fifty others and they were checking
  us out, now that was humiliating. It was humiliating showering with sixty others
  in a public shower. It didn't kill us did it? No one ever died from humiliation."
    --Zell Miller, (D-Traitor) comparing showering in a gym with being sodomized,
       and videotaped while forced to masturbate by an occupying army,  Attribution

 All these Bush supporters saying the abuse was no big deal?
 The only way to prove that is for them to say, "Get a camera and do to me
 what the pictures show we did to them and I'll prove that it was no big deal."

 But there's not one Republican who would agree to that, is there?
 Anyone who says, "This was no big deal," who doesn't agree to be taped naked
 with a military dog is just bluffing and when you call them on it - they fold.

 Subject: Rape and torture is wrong

 The Pentagon has shown lawmakers the remaining photos of prisoner abuse. These new photos
 are so graphic that senators concluded that releasing the photos would put our troops in danger.
 They stated that even to fully describe everything would offend the sensibilities of any rational person.

 Of what they could describe they stated that saw the raping of prisoners - both heterosexual and
 homosexual rape. Other pictures depicted "crewel and sadistic torture" and obscenities with corpses.
"I don't know how the hell these people got into our army," said Colorado Republican Sen. Ben Nighthorse
 Campbell after viewing what he called a fraction of the images. We can only imaging what they can't describe.

 I want to say for the record that rape and torture is wrong and that there is absolutely no way to justify this.
 We can not ignore this and try to cover it up. We need to get to the bottom of this no matter how high up
 the ladder this goes. This is about who we are as a country and we can not allow ourselves to be defined this way.
 The absolute worse thing that can happen is that we allow people to get away with this. We need to make it
 absolutely clear to the President, the Secretary of Defense, the Military, and the people of the world that it is
 never OK to do this and those who are doing this will be punished. America will be judged by our integrity
 and we must show the world that we are an honest people and can be trusted.

 If you get in now for two slices of the pie, which is your web site mentioned with a

 So if you're thinking about getting involved in this - and have at least $190,
 contact us as soon as possible because the price of ads just dropped 33 percent
 thanks to Helldog and others who were generous enough to contribute.

 That pitch must be poorly written, because people are wanting to send in $47.50
 so Helldog and the sponsotrs can match it - but it doesn't work that way.
 We have to raise over $5,000 for this to work, and we can't get there $47.50 at a time.
 Well, we could, but then we'd have over a hundred websites to mention.

 Reuters, NBC Staff Abused by U.S. Troops in Iraq

  Click  Here

 U.S. forces beat three Iraqis working for Reuters and subjected them to sexual and
 religious taunts and humiliation during their detention in a military camp, the three said Tuesday.

 Two of the three Reuters staff said they had been forced to insert a finger into their anus and
 then lick it, and were forced to put shoes in their mouths, particularly humiliating in Arab culture.

 All three said they were forced to make demeaning gestures as soldiers laughed, taunted them
 and took photographs. They said they did not want to give details publicly earlier because of the
 degrading nature of the abuse.

 This is the "superb" job Rumsfeld is doing?

 In any other administration - heads would roll over charges like this.
 But in the "We don't make mistakes" administration, they'll just blame the grunts.
 This is not standing by the troops.  This is hanging them out to dry.

 Bush's Movements and Actions on 9/11
  A timeline of Bush's illogical moves on America's worst day

  Click  Here

 Bush's actions on 9- 11 have been the subject of lively debate, mostly on the internet. Details reported
 that day and in the week after the attacks - both the media reports and accounts given by Bush himself
 - have changed radically over the past 18 months. Culling hundreds of reports from newspapers, magazines,
 and the internet has only made finding the "truth" of what happened and when it happened more confusing.
 In the changed political climate after 9/11, few have dared raise challenging questions about Bush's actions.
 A journalist who said Bush was "flying around the country like a scared child, seeking refuge in his mother's
 bed after having a nightmare" and another who said Bush "skedaddled" were fired. Click  Here
 We should have a concise record of where President Bush was throughout that day, but we do not.


 Unfortunately, Bush has never been asked - not even once - to explain these statements. His memory not only
 contradicts every single media report, it also contradicts what he said that evening. In his speech to the nation that
 evening, Bush said: "Immediately following the first attack, I implemented our government's emergency response plans."
 It's not known what these emergency plans were, because neither Bush nor anyone in his administration mentioned
 this immediate response again. Implementing "emergency response plans" seems to completely contradict Bush's
"by the way" recollection of a small airplane accident..

 This is an extremely detailed account with perhaps a hundred links to verify accuracy.
 They've told one lie after another and the press refuses to ask them to explain.
 I wish I had time to go thru all of it - maybe somebody else would like to and file a report?

Get Your War On, (c) 2004 by David Rees. Used with permission


"A month ago on April 18th, George Bush led by five points in the polls. Now, $70 million in
  misleading ads later, John Kerry is up by five points, 51 percent to 46 percent. Even more
  amazing is that polling among swing state voters shows John Kerry leading there as well.
  George Bush's approval rating is at an all time low of 46 percent, and 58 percent of
  Americans disapprove of George Bush's handling of Iraq.
      -- DNC fund raising letter,

 I would like to see you guys fight like you're 15 points behind.
 I remember the last days of the 1992 Clinton campaign. His staff told him he already had the race won,
 but Clinton kept working 18 hour days, campaining in six states per day sometimes, like he was still behind.
 I assume he's helping you guys behind the scenes, and that makes me feel a little better.
 Thank Koresh you didn't reject his help like Gore did.

 US enemies are calling its bluff
  Bush's failed policy has become a bugger's muddle

  Click  Here

"Washington will still argue that the overwhelming majority - the silent majority - of Iraqis are
  not only better off now than under Saddam but that they don't want the Americans to leave.
  But it doesn't matter what the silent majority wants if they cannot speak for fear of getting murdered.

 The inability from day one of the occupation to provide security for the vast bulk of Iraqi civilians
 has emerged as perhaps the central failure of the US occupation. This dates from pre-war planning
 and arises directly out of US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's military theories - that modern
 warfare doesn't require soldiers, that it can all be done with hi-tech gadgetry.  The US is now staring
 colossal failure in the face. The occupation has been a complete bugger's muddle of bureaucratic infighting,
 confused objectives and incompetent implementation."

 The whole world (minus Tony Blair) begged us not to attack Iraq, they begged us not to invade,
 but the arrogance and the unlimited greed of the BFEE resulted in this:

 "Screw you - we'll go it alone."

 And then there was this classic from Bunnypanyts:
"Since it's our soldiers doing all the dying, America gets all the profits from the war."

 No, "America" didn't get anything but higher gas prices.
 Those hundreds of billions are going directly to the Bush Family Evil Empire and their gang of thugs.

 Oh yeah, we got all the dead, too.

 Atrocities in Iraq: 'I killed innocent people for our government'

  Click  Here

 Q: Who gave the order to wipe the demonstrators out?

 A: Higher command. We were told to be on the lookout for the civilians because a lot of the
 Fedayeen and the Republican Guards had tossed away uniforms and put on civilian clothes
 and were mounting terrorist attacks on American soldiers. The intelligence reports that were
 given to us were basically known by every member of the chain of command. The order to
 shoot the demonstrators, I believe, came from senior government officials, including intelligence
 communities within the military and the U.S. government.

 This is one reason so many of our soldiers are going to come back screwed up:
 They were given order to fire on cars and trucks leaving Baghdad (after we dropped leaflets
 telling them all they had to do was surrender) and then there's this chilling exchange:

 Q: The reports said the cars were loaded with explosives.
      In all the incidents did you find that to be the case?

 A: Never. Not once. There were no secondary explosions.

"I have sadly come to the conclusion that President Bush is merely a frontman, an empty suit, who is
  manipulated by the people in his administration. Bush has the most dangerously simplistic view of the

 Take away his cue cards and he can barely talk. Americans should be embarrassed that Abdullah of Jordan

"Stand Back and Let Bush Hang Himself"
   by Josh Marshall

  Click  Here

"The most salient fact about the contemporary American political landscape is its profound political polarization.
 And that is almost the last thing the president has going for him. There are forty-plus percent of the electorate
 on both sides that will stick with their candidate, and fight for him, simply because he opposes the other side.
 I think that that's one of the few things keeping the president's approval ratings as high as they are.

 Further injecting partisan political sensibilities into this current moment will, I think, steady the president and
 perhaps even help him in his current state...for now it's salutary for the Democrats to have President Bush
 the focus -- near exclusively -- of attention. There is, I think, a coalescing sense that President Bush is a
 failed president -- that key and grave decisions he has made have been the wrong ones and that his leadership
 and management have been deeply flawed on many fronts."

 Hmmmm.... this sounds like the "No hammer" strategy.
 But as bad as Bush is screwing everything up, there might be something to this.
 The decisions Kerry makes from now till November will determine history.

 Subject: BC, there's no need to bend the truth...

 Bart, you wrote:

> "Alison, right after 9-11 we had a mini-war on these pages.
>   The doves said, "If we retaliate, they'll just hate us more."

 That's bullshit! I don't remember *anyone* saying that.

 Dude, you broke the rule.
 You don't bet on what you don't remember seeing.  You bet on what you saw for sure.
 You can't make that kind of wager and win - you're taking an unacceptable risk.
 When  you call a guy out into the street for a gunfight, it's usually a good idea to be
 standing on solid ground, such as, "Is this guy a faster draw than me?"

 As I recall it, you were talking about "glassing" Afghanistan, and a number of us talked about
 a majority of the population being completely innocent of anything having to do with terrorism,
 and that it was immoral to "glass" all of them to get a few terrorists.

 It's true, for a few hours or days, I was in the "glass them all" mode.
 The back pages are all there, I didn't go back and change anything.
 9-11 happened in Volume 581 - New York Disaster.
 I backed off that "glass them all" and changed it to "glass Al Qaeda."

 Mind you, no one (that I saw) ever said that we shouldn't retaliate, just that punishment
 should be meted out to those who deserved it, not to everyone who happened to be around them.

 A ha!
 You have seen the error of your ways and have decided to backpedal your accusation and redefine
 your perimieters to what you recall seeing. It looks like I'm not the only one who's guilty of speaking
 without thinking.  My excuse was the worst day in US history - what's yours?

 Look BC, I'm with you on just about everything but.... there's no reason to
 mischaracterize things that were said in order to make your point today.
 That's the kind of crap that Republicans do, don't fall to THAT level!


 What if I spend four minutes searching the back issues and find such a quote?
 Will you accuse me of planting it there, "because that's the kind of crap Republicans do?"

 When you stand up and say, "Dude, you just told a lie," you are betting your credibility.
 In this case there was no need to bet your credibility unless you had taken the time to scour
 each of the post 9-11 pages to be certain your accusation was solid enough to launch.

 If we were playing poker, I'd be shoving all my chips into the pot about now.
 "I was saddened to read that your e-mail is running heavily against retaliation for the unspeakable atrocities of Tuesday morning."
 ...any chance you live near Chicago?


"Moore's film premiered Monday at the Cannes Film Festival to a series of near-riot scenes,
  as overbooked screenings were besieged by mobs trying to push their way in. The response at
  the early morning screening I attended was loudly enthusiastic. And at the official black-tie
  screening, it was greeted by a standing ovation; a friend who was there said it went on "for at
  least 25 minutes," which probably means closer to 15 (estimates of ovations at Cannes are like
  estimates of parade crowds in Chicago)."
   --Roger Ebert, on "Fahrenheit 9/11" Attribution

 Someday, we'll be big enough that they'll send a DVD for us to review.
 I want to see this film now, not later.

 I had a fella unsubscribe today.

 Usually when people unsubscribe, they say they just don't have
 an extra $5 or $10 to spare because they were laid off or whatever.

 Also, it's not unusual when someone unsubscribes, we probably average
 one a day except when I take an unpopular stand, then it goes up considerably.

 But this guy said he was outta here because Bush was "toast, the battle was won,"
 and there was no reason to continue fighting "after the results were already in."

 No offense to the unsubscriber, (he probably won't read this, anyway) but that's the kind
 of talk that will give the BFEE another 4, 8 or endless years as our merciless overlords.

 The time to stop fighting is after Kerry moves into the White House, because he could
 win and then we could suffer another 9-11 on Bush's watch in December and Bush may
 decide that, to save America, "power cannot be transfered at this time."

 So let's keep fighting - and fighting hard - until January 21st.

GOP Sexual Morality Rap Sheet

 Prison Abuse Scandal Goes Right to the Top
   by Joe Conason

  Click  Here

 ...the men and women absorbing the brunt of George W. Bush's foolish decision to
 invade Iraq are likely to agree on at least one principle: Those at the top must be held
 responsible for the abuses along with those at the bottom.

 As long ago as Jan. 25, 2002, White House counsel Alberto Gonzales advised the President
 that the "new paradigm" created by the war on terrorism "renders obsolete Geneva's strict
 limitations on questioning of enemy prisoners and renders quaint some of its provisions."

 The latest revelations by Seymour Hersh in The New Yorker suggest that those attitudes
 shaped secret intelligence operations at prison camps in Iraq. The crimes at Abu Ghraib
 were not necessarily isolated incidents that occurred outside the chain of command.

 P.S. Did Tommy do some strange edits on this show?
 It seemed like you got cut off in mid-word on a couple of parts.

 No, that was my sloppy editing, and I'm glad you asked that question.
 Lots of time when I talk, I change horses in mid-sentence, All this time
 I've been going back and meticulously editing out whatever blubs I can.

 For Show 39, we're going to try an experiment and do it "free style."
 Show 39 will have lots of mistakes and false starts and stuff because it'll be more real.

 Why are we doing this?  As the weeks go by, I'm getting better at not screwing up
 and it's the editing that slows things down. Maybe I should wait until Show 50 or 60
 to make this move, but as the French say, "Tempus Fugit," so we gotta accelerate,
 but you subscribers will be the ultimate judge.

 This should greatly increase BCR output, so it's worth a try.
 If people can't stand the free style, we can always go back to the meticulous editing,
 but I think a few mistakes is worth more content and you might even think it's funny
 that Monkeyboy Bart needed three takes to say, "Welcome to today's show."

"The roots of the Abu Ghraib prison scandal lie not in the criminal inclinations of a few Army
  reservists but in a decision, approved last year by Rumsfeld, to expand a highly secret operation,
  which had been focussed on the hunt for Al Qaeda, to the interrogation of prisoners in Iraq."
     --Seymour Hersh, who is responsible for breaking this story   Attribution

 I wish people would stop looking for a way to link Bush and Rummy to this mess and remember
 that Bush announced to the whole world that we weren't going to play by the rules years ago.

 Subject: Don't sweat the numbers

 It doesn't matter how low Junior's numbers get.

 If it looks like he can't win (and if his daddy's friends can't steal the next one
 like they stole the last one), then THERE MAY NOT BE AN ELECTION.

 There might be some stagering, unprecedented "national emergency" that's so horrifying,
 so catasthrophic, so effing scary that the election will be "postponed" for the duration of
 the emergency...to maintain continuity of command and control over the military.


 M, I agree that's entirely possible.
 I feel certain they will not hand over power to Kerry under any conditions.
 Under normal circumstances I'd be willing to place a large bet on that, but I'd get
 no satisfaction from making a profit on the further loss of democracy in America.

 I see four possible scenarios:
 1. Bush legitimately wins the minds of the voters. If polls show him ahead and he wins, then we accept the loss.
 2. Bush has Diebold wire the machines to where the GOP wins no matter how the real vote count ends up.
 3. A mega-terrorist attack that "forces" Bush to cancel the election. Remember, AL Qaeda struck Spain two days
     before the election. If they hit us on that Sunday, that would give Bush half an excuse to cancel the election
     depending on the size of the catastrope. (This makes me wonder if Spain wasn't a precurser - a test run.
 4. Number Four is scarier than Number Three.  Bush loses legit but says "for the good of the country,
     we cannot trust America's future to those who would appease the evil-doer terrorists."
     At that point, the Supreme Court rules that Bush is entitled to the throne and we're left with two choices:

     Civil war or accept that we'll never get to vote again.
     Since Democrats are afraid to fight, look for the latter to happen.

 participated in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and that "weapons of mass destruction" have been found there.
 Where on earth do these people get their information?

 From talk radio, that's where. Never mind that the Bush administration has repeatedly hinted at Iraqi
 crimes it cannot prove; the main source of right-wing agitprop in the U.S. is there 24/7 on your radio dial.

"It's very much like the American minorities here in this country. You can never hear about the
  bad things they do. It's hush-hush but if a Timothy McVeigh should come along, then it gets
  front page coverage. Because the story line goes that white male, Christian, heterosexuals are
  evil and all of the others are -- are -- are victims and only getting their just rewards by fighting back."
    --Michael Savage, "Savage: Arabs are "non-humans" and 'racist, fascist bigots'" Attribution

 Michael Savage made his fortune from ignorant conservatives who buy this crap.

 To hear him tell it, "negroes" have been blowing up federal buildings, killing hundreds, for years,
 but the liberal establishment refused to cover any of those crimes until a white Christian did it.

 These are the poeople who impeached Bill Clinton.
 Impeachment was all about race - that was the Number One reason Clinton had to go.

 Killing people for their own good
   by Molly Ivins

 It's quite difficult to convince people you are killing them for their own good. That's our basic problem in Iraq.

 You can try explaining that you are killing them in order to bring freedom and democracy to their nation --
"Freedom is the Almighty's gift to every man and woman in the world," said President Bush. However, this
 argument is less than convincing if an American bomb or bullet has just killed your child. Or if you were
 among the 70 percent to 90 percent of the prisoners at Abu Ghraib who were there by accident."

 I wonder how many American dead we'll have by election day...
 I wonder what percent of the military vote Bush will get...
 Will the families of those serving in Iraq vote for more war?
