"At one point I respected Al Gore,
Dennis, speaking of sad, what's it like to turn Nazi
"Dennis Miller's 9pm CNBC show is still at
the bottom of the ratings charts
-- and it dipped lower last month. In April, Miller averaged 211,000 households,
in May, the show slumped to 132,000 households, declines of 30 to 40%."

Poor Dennis - he bet his career that Bush would be a success.
Hey Dennis, take away "Springtime for Hitler" and you'll discover

Falls on Sword for Bush, Resigns
Going out with another lie, "Leaving for personal reasons..."
Tenet had been under fire for months in connection with intelligence failures related to the war in Iraq
specifically assertions the United States made about Saddam's purported possession of WMDs,
and with respect to the threat from the al-Qaida terrorist network.
During his seven years at the CIA, speculation
at times has swirled around whether Tenet would retire
or be forced out, peaking after 9-11 and surging again after the flawed intelligence about Iraq.
"He's been a strong and able leader at the agency, and I will miss him," said Bush.
Where else but working for the BFEE can
you totally screw up and get thousands of people killed
and still be praised as "a strong and able leader," by a monkey posing as a president?

Subject: help with hypocrisy
I won't pretend to understand the tenets of the Catholic religion.
Bishop Michael Sheridan implies that a vote
for Kerry is a mortal sin.
I'm wondering why the Catholic hierarchy didn't weigh in when Republican
pro-choice candidates George Pataki, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Arlen Specter,
and Rudy Giuliani were running for office.
I'd be grateful if someone could explain
away this hypocrisy?
Is it only a sin if you're a Democrat?
Are you free of sin if you are a registered Republican?
A conspiracy nut might think that the Catholic
Church was part of
a Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy.

Gives Contract to Tax Traitor/Campaign Donor
Another crooked deal by the most crooked president ever
President Bush has said he wants to "make sure that the system is fair for those of us who do pay taxes"
and that "we want everybody paying their fair share." But yesterday, the president went out of his way to
lavish a massive government contract on a major campaign contributor, even though it specifically moved
operations offshore to avoid paying U.S. taxes.
According to news reports, the Bush administration
yesterday gave a $10 billion contract for the Department
of Homeland Security to Accenture (formerly Arthur Andersen), despite the company having recently moved
its official headquarters to Bermuda to avoid U.S. taxes. The contract was awarded less than two years after
the White House and its allies in Congress gutted a House-passed provision that would have banned awarding
homeland security contracts to corporations who exploit tax loopholes, move offshore, and avoid U.S. taxes.
At the time, Accenture lobbied to eliminate the provision, hiring GOP political consultant "and Bush family
confidant" Charlie Black to lobby on its behalf. Accenture executives have given President Bush more than
$68,000 in campaign contributions since 2000.

Bush Consults Lawyer for Plame Leak Probe
"Can a lawyer get me out of this?"
President Bush has consulted an outside lawyer in case he needs to retain him in the
grand jury investigation of who leaked the name of a covert CIA operative last year,
the White House said Wednesday.
There was no indication that Bush is a target
of the leak investigation, but the president
has decided that in the event he needs an attorney's advice, "he would retain him."
The lawyer is Jim Sharp, White House spokeswoman Claire Buchan said.
"The president has said that everyone should cooperate
in this matter and that would
include himself," she said.
But that's all a lie. There was only
a handful of people involved, but Bush and the
stonewalling FBI are dragging this out (it's been a year) to get past the November election.
Leak Probe Subpoenas Reporters
Tim the Whore and a journalist from Time Inc. have received federal subpoenas to face
questioning about the alleged leak of an undercover CIA weapons expert's identity, but both
news organizations said Sunday they would fight the subpoenas.
The companies said the subpoenas came from
a special grand jury investigating whether a
figure in the Bush administration improperly disclosed the identity of the agent, Valerie Plame,
after her husband, former diplomat Joseph Wilson, publicly challenged the White House's claim
that Iraq had been trying to obtain uranium for nuclear weapons from Africa. Wilson has
charged that officials made the disclosure in an effort to discredit him.
Why are they messing with Tim the Whore
- why not Bob Novak?
remember, they put Susan McDougal in federal prison for 22 months because she refused
to help Ken Starr unelect Clinton, but when the BFEE rats out a CIA agent for petty reasons,
they can't put Novak in jail until he talks?
Why are the Republicans, no matter how guilty
or how serious the crime, held unaccountable?
And why do the innocent Democrats always end up in the most trouble?
If Susan McDougal had to do time for keeping
qwuiet about Clinton's sex life,
Novak should do time for risking the life of an American agent to help the GOP get revenge.

I think I know where you're coming from,

More than any year ever, any one persons' vote is THE vote that counts.

Oklahoma wouldn't vote for Kerry if bin Laden was Bush's running mate.

34 to 40 weeks old. "Hence, the argument that Laci Peterson didn't die on Dec. 23rd, as the prosecution says.

In short, a thorough analysis of the WMD reporting failures at the New York Times would have to
include a recognition of a pro-conservative tilt in the news columns over the past quarter century,
especially in areas of investigative journalism. Over and over, when stories might make conservatives
look bad, the Times insists on the strictest journalistic standards or ignores the stories outright.
Conversely, when stories parallel conservative interests, almost anything goes.
Simply put, the Iraq WMD lapses were not
an isolated or inexplicable case of bad journalism.
They were part of a pattern of skewing reporting in a conservative direction.

Sues for Access to Fla. Voter Rolls
Democrats too scared to sue, CNN does the job for them
CNN sued Florida's elections office Wednesday to get access to a state list with names of possible felons
who may need to be deleted from voter rolls. The state uses the list to provide names of possible felons to
county elections officials, who must review them to determine if individuals should be removed from the rolls.
The list is of interest to journalists because of the potential for mistakes.
After the 2000 election, in which George
W. Bush was declared the winner in Florida by 537 votes following
five weeks of recounts and challenges, there were widespread claims around the state by people who said
they were prevented from voting even though they weren't felons.
Why are the Democrats afraid to fight their
We see Lugar, McCain and Hagel telling the punk to wise up on Iraq,

I wish you wouldn't sound so convinced whenever
you talk about Osama and 911.
Do you think, absent any evidence, it's right to blame Osama for 911 just because Bush says so?
I haven't seen a shred of evidence that will stand in a courtroom that points to Osama bin Laden
as the planner of the 911 attacks. If I'm wrong, feel free to correct me.
If you agree with me, perhaps you could
consider putting a disclaimer-ish word whenever you
mention Osama as guilty of 911, you know, like- "allegedly", "supposedly" etc etc.
B, I think Osama did it.
And the page would be much longer if I had to put "allegedly" in front of every statement
that hasn't been proven in a court of law. For example, we are "allegedly" at war with Iraq.
That hasn't been proven in court, but most people believe it's true.
On the other hand, do you have any evidence Osama is innocent?

Bush Administration Frees Terror Suspect
Why free this guy and not even give the other 'suspects' a hearing?
Nabil al-Marabh, once imprisoned as the No. 27 man on the FBI's list of must-capture terror suspects, is free again.
He's free despite telling a Jordanian informant he planned to die a martyr by driving a gasoline truck into a New York City
tunnel, turning it sideways, opening its fuel valves and having an al-Qaida operative shoot a flare to ignite a massive explosion.
Free despite telling the FBI he had trained
on rifles and rocket propelled grenades at militant camps in Afghanistan
after admitting he sent money to a former roommate convicted of trying to blow up a hotel in Jordan.
Free despite efforts by prosecutors in Detroit
and Chicago to indict him on charges that could have kept him in prison
Those indictments were rejected by the Justice Department in the name of protecting intelligence. Even two judges openly
questioned al-Marabh's terror ties. The Bush administration in January deported al-Marabh to Syria - his home and a
country the U.S. government long has regarded as a sponsor of terrorism.

'Sopranos' to Air Its Fifth-Season Finale
Poor Adriana: Scuttling on all fours across dead leaves in a forest until Silvio, Tony Soprano's consigliere,
popped her with two shots. That was Adriana's ghastly end on the most recent episode of "The Sopranos,"
underlining how business is business in a mob family - even for Ade, a terribly reluctant FBI informant
whose own fiance, Soprano soldier Christopher Moltisanti, set in motion the hit Tony ordered.
"The Sopranos" airs its fifth-season finale Sunday
at 9 p.m. EDT on HBO.
Then 10 more episodes in 2005 will close this magnificent saga.
It will be sad losing The Sopranos, probably the
best TV series ever, but at least we get another mini-season.
This was supposed to be the last show, but David Chase got carried away and shot more episodes than he
planned so HBO cut the final year into two mini-seasons so we get a few final episodes next year.

Boxing Promoter Don King Stumps for Bush
Don King, the most crooked man in thwe world's most crooked sport,
is touring the country with crooked RNC chairman Ed Gillespie to tout the
election of the most crooked president in the history of the United States.
King's rap sheet makes him an odd choice
for Bush front man. He was convicted in the
1967 beating death of a man who owed him money and spent nearly four years in prison.
In 1954, he killed a man who was robbing a numbers house he operated in Cleveland,
but it was ruled self-defense. King also has beaten tax evasion and fraud charges, faced
numerous lawsuits from boxers and their handlers and endured three grand jury investigations
and an FBI sting operation - all while cementing his status as one of the world's top boxing promoters. .
King's rap sheet isn't any worse than the
Iran-Contra thungs Bush hired for Homeland Security.
Don King fits with the BFEE as snug as OJ's gloves, soaked in blood.
The Justice Department's victory over the Constitution
"Hmmm...darkie, wears a Pizza Hut
table cloth, he sure looks guilty..."
With a triumphant chorus of "We-told-you-so"s, the Justice Department unveiled yesterday a seven-page
document summarizing all the accumulated evil that lurks in the heart of alleged enemy combatant Jose Padilla.
Why release all this information now? The folks at Justice say they were just responding to a request from Orrin Hatch.
As though Hatch's was the first and only demand for some tangible piece of evidence against Padilla. ...
The DOJ insists that the timing of this
release has nothing to do with public outrage about unsubstantiated warnings
of stepped-up terror threats. They also say it has nothing to do with the Supreme Court's deliberations over Padilla's
case, due to be decided this month.
Change exists with the hope of spreading the messages
of the Howard Dean and Dennis Kucinich presidential campaigns
and working together for the greater good.

Subject: Why I love your site
I come to your site regularly because your
commentary on the Democrats' abject
cowardice provides me with a consistant reminder of why Nader's candidacy is so vital.
You can't have it both ways, Bart.
If the Republicans suck (and they do), and
the Democrats are unable to get it up either
(and they can't), then the only logical choice for lefties is Nader. You have yet to prove
otherwise in any of your rebuttals.
Riddle me this: why did more Democrats in Florida vote Bush in 2000 than for Nader?
Because Bush had a chance to win and Nader
Gore lost his own election, with certain
help from James Baker and other Republican cronies.
The more we suck up to the false dichotomy presented by the Republicrats, the more America
will ease slowly into some kind of neo-fascist corporate oligarchy.
You tell me when I can vote for someone
who doesn't own multiple houses while most
Americans struggle to pay their rent.
Happy to debate you in a chat room on this-
Ethan, the answer is simple - Kerry can
make Bush go away and Nader can't.
If you want Bush to rape the world for another four years, vote for him or Nader.
Yes, the Democrats are gutless, spineless cowards, but all they
need is motivation.
Nader couldn't win if Bush's plane crashed into Kerry's plane a week before the election.
Why not strive for Nader's ideals and vote to get rid of Bush
I'll agree that Nader wants to change American politics, but can we
afford any more change like what Nader gave us in 2000?
Last thing - Nader is rich enough to own multiple houses - what does that prove?

Mr. Brahimi was the person that put together the group. And I haven't spoken to him or anybody on the
ground as to why Chalabi wasn't taken. I don't remember anybody walking into my office saying,

Sr.'s Iraq-Iran Secrets
more great writing from Robert Parry
Israeli governments have long made a high priority out of forging alliances with countries like Iran
on the periphery of the Arab world to divert Arab antipathy that otherwise could be concentrated on Israel.
Plus, Israel and Iran had an important enemy in common: Iraq's Saddam Hussein. Both Israel and Iran had
a lot to gain by convincing the United States to remove their hated adversary.
The elder George Bush also understands the
rise of the neocons, a movement that took shape in the late 1970s
and helped the Reagan-Bush campaign in 1980. Many of the neocons were disaffected Democrats who favored
a harder line against the Soviet Union (which many conservatives argued was then in the ascendancy) and in
support of Israel (at a time when U.S. diplomats were pushing Israel toward a land for peace swap with the Palestinians).
God, The Rapture and Vera Casey
What will your God be doing on June 11?" I asked George Bush.
"We will be closing down the Vera Casey Parent-Child Center in Berkeley. And, of course, occupying Iraq."
"But why?" I asked. "I thought you guys were pro-life."
George looked at me like I was the veriest
fool. "You are just not getting it, Jane." Obviously not.
The Vera Casey Center offers excellent child care services to teen mothers who chose not to have abortions.
It should be a pro-lifer's dream! They should be funding it right and -- gulp -- left. Instead, the Bush administration's
Scrooge-like grip on the educational purse strings of America is causing the center to close down on June 11.

Do any GOP impressions?
