Quote of the Day
"You might be a right wing republican if...
"When courts extend constitutional prohibitions
beyond their previously recognized limit,
they may restrict democratic choices made by public bodies."
--Rehnquist, who sided with the conservative majority in Bush v. Gore, explaining why
he couldn't rule in favor of Newdow's "under God" challenge in the Pledge Attribution
It seems like every time they issue a new ruling they prove once
again how biased
they were in 2000 when they took the decision away from the voters.
Wants Saddam by End of the Month
They're acting like they're autonomous - but are they?
The new Iraqi government wants custody of Saddam and all other prisoners by the time
sovereignty is handed over at the end of this month, the interim prime minister said.
"All the detainees will be transferred to the
Iraqi authorities within the two coming weeks,"
Allawi said. "Saddam and the others will be delivered to the Iraqis."
Bush can't let this happen. If Saddam takes the witness stand
and tells what he knows about
Reagan, Bush, Rummy and Cheney selling him poison gas and WMDs, their reputations will
be ruined and President Kerry might want them put on trial for a host of crimes.

Ghraib General Says She's a Scapegoat
How 'bout them cowboys!!
The American general who was in charge of Abu Ghraib claimed she was being made a scapegoat
for the abuse of detainees, and said her successor once told her that prisoners should be treated "like dogs."
A spokesman for Maj. Gen. Geoffrey Miller, accused of making the "like dogs" remark, categorically denied the charge.
Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski said Miller told
her last autumn that prisoners "are like dogs, and if you allow them
to believe at any point that they are more than a dog then you've lost control of them."
Karpinski said that during a visit to Iraq,
Miller - still the commander at the Gitmo - spoke of wanting to
"Gitmoize" Abu Ghraib by applying the Cuban facility's regimented detention and interrogation techniques.
"He talked about Gitmoizing in terms of what the (military police) were going to do; he was going to select
the MPs, they were going to receive special training," she said.
Well of course this female general is guilty.
They can't blame it on the grunts because it was too widespread, too coordinated.
And it can't be the fault of Bush/Rummy/Gonzales because they were sent here by God,
so let's blame the lady because we all know women don't belong in the military anyway.

Enron Gouged Western Customers
All the time, Bush and Rush said, "It was the market"
Enron Corp.'s manipulation of energy markets gouged Western customers for at least $1.1 billion,
according to audiotapes and documents released Monday by the same utility that uncovered tapes
of traders laughing about cheating grandmothers on their electricity bills.
U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., used
the evidence to demand a new investigation by the
Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. She said the agency's colossal failure to uncover Enron's
schemes wound up hurting thousands of customers, and that FERC tried to keep the utility from
getting access to Enron's tapes - because Bush and Cheney are in on the scam.
"When are you going to give justice to the individuals
who have been hurt by this Enron market manipulation?"
Cantwell asked. "If the federal oversight regulators aren't going to do their job, then they should get out of
the way and quit obstructing justice."
Why would Bush and Cheney help Enron cover up their crimes?
There's only one possible explanation - to protect themselves from the law.
Trust me - that $1.1B figure is waaaaaay low.
Enron stole $500M in one day, and there had to be more days like that.
Remember, again and again Bush was asked to intervene, but he
because he said "This is the market at work," but he knew what was going on.
If the Democrats had any balls they's start impeachment today - but they don't.

Subject: October Surprise
I was driving home tonight and listening
to a Reich-Wing crackpot on KSFO in San Francisco and he
was going off about the fact that Bush was going to win in Ohio now because of the Ashcroft announcement
about catching the suspected terrorist who wanted to blow up an unnamed mall somewhere in Ohio.
This might be their strategy to "catch"
a terrorist in each battleground state to swing the vote their direction.
Ashcroft has done this a couple of times already this year. Released information about terrorists that are either
dead or captive in another country to try to give his leader a boost in the election.
Just my brain fart for the day about what the Reich will do to stay in power.
If you take away that one guy who looks like Ron Jeremy, have they caught anybody?
(Saddam and Ootie and Kootie don't count - they didn't try to attack us)
Each time they catch a guy, they always claim he was a "top guy," but are they?
Plus, the American Taliban, Jose Padilla, that 20th hijacker guy Zaccariuri they caught
- nobody has ever seen any evidence that they were guilty of anything, have we?
The Bush administration has been caught
in hundreds of lies, so why believe them
when they say they caught "the dirty bomb guy" when he's not allowed to speak
or have a lawyer or even go before a judge?
And it goes without saying that Osama, Mullah
Omar and that beheading nutjob in Baghdad
are all running lose and killing poeple - so how can the BFEE claim any successes?
Bush is running on his war record which could hardly be worse.
The most positive thing anyone can say about them is they "only" had one 9-11.

News is Good News
When a Monkey misspeaks, who listens?
"With his underlings giving him such uniformly favorable reviews, Bush, who has said his aides
are the "most objective sources" of news, has begun to anticipate good news even before it occurs.
Greeting the Algerian president last week, he remarked: 'That was a good meeting yesterday.
We'll have a good meeting today.'"

Ronnie, Osama and the Chin defense by Greg Palast
Reagan politically fathered those rascally Rosemary's Babies of the Bush junta:
Dick Cheney, Ronnie's appropriately titled Whip in Congress;
Paul Wolfowitz, the kind of Dr. Strangelove that scares even Henry Kissinger;
John Poindexter, convicted of abetting Contra terrorists while in the Reagan White House,
later Bush's first Total Information Awareness chieftain;
and Reagan Treasury Secretary James Baker, who tried his damnedest to bankrupt America for Ron,
and now, from his Bush White House office, is doing the same for Iraq as "special advisor" to the conquered nation.
But there can be no more dangerous creature
to have burbled out of the Reagan Frankenstein factory
than his Cold War comrade, Osama bin Laden.
"Osama is good people - we grew up together..."

No question: John Ashcroft is the worst attorney general in history.
First, there's the absence of any major successful prosecutions.
Note: Not true - they got Tommy Chong and Martha Stewart.
Then there is the lack of any major captures.
Somewhere, the anthrax terrorist is laughing.
But the Justice Department, you'll be happy to know, is trying to determine whether it can file
bioterrorism charges against a Buffalo art professor whose work includes harmless bacteria in petri dishes.
Perhaps most telling is the way Mr. Ashcroft
responds to criticism of his performance.
His first move is always to withhold the evidence. Then he tries to change the subject
by making a dramatic announcement of a terrorist threat.
Take his clothes off,
hood him and bring

I guess it's just a coincidence that J-Lo and Marc Anthony got
the same weekend his new album was coming out, right?
He's been on every morning show and every talk show you can think

I guess we should blame the gays for ruining the sanctity of marriage.
Why - they made Rush divorce his wife, those awful gays.

Fighter Jets Have Stopped 9/11?
The 9-11 panel wants to know, they claim
Still, two events would have been required for the Pentagon strike to have been averted.
First, President Bush would have had to
have ordered that any hijacked airliners be shot down;
the military's rules of engagement did not allow for that without such presidential intercession.
Bush ultimately did make that call, but only after the Pentagon was hit.
Yes, he was busy reading that goat story
to the kids instead of acting like a "war president,"
and the American press just let's that little fact remain unspoken to protect never-elected Bush.
Second, NORAD's F-16 Fighting Falcons at
Langley Air Force Base, near Norfolk, Va.,
would have had to have been launched sooner. Why they weren't is unclear.

"According to a search of the Nexis electronic
database, looking for stories, columns or
TV transcripts that contained at least six mentions of the former president during the
week that followed his death on June 5, we found the Boston Globe ran 33 items, the
Dallas Morning News made room for 50, the New York Times churned out 59, while the
St. Louis Post-Dispatch ran 62, the Washington Times 65, the Chicago Tribune 71, and
the Los Angeles Times 72. USA Today printed 88 items..The Washington Post..published
approximately 108 items..National Public Radio aired 105 segments..the exact same number
as Fox News..The NBC news family -- NBC, MSNBC, and CNBC..was able to squeeze in
125 segments. But the Reagan title holder was clearly CNN, which somehow managed to
produce 180 segments. Just imagine what the Reagan coverage would have looked like if
the press didn't have a liberal bias."

Golf would be much better served if the real Woods showed his face
Thursday and resumed his pursuit of history.
Everyone loves the occasional upset, but
let's face it: Dynasties make the games
we play and watch far more interesting. Given that the Lakers have no better chance
of finding their touch than David Duval, Woods is the best hope of the week.
So the new Tiger should go back to being
the old Tiger, the one who wouldn't dream
of playing the fool in a commercial spoofing Caddyshack. The one who wouldn't dream
of spending his pre-Masters news conference regaling reporters with stories of tips he'd
received (and used) from complete strangers who could barely break 70 on the front side.

Nation Builders and Low Bidders in Iraq
"From the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison to the mutilation of American civilians at Falluja,
many of the worst moments of the Iraqi occupation have involved private military contractors
"outsourced" by the Pentagon. With no public or Congressional oversight, the Pentagon has
paid billions of dollars to companies that now have as many as 20,000 employees carrying out
military functions ranging from logistics and troop training to convoy escort and interrogations.
Yet despite the problems and the widespread accusations of overbilling, it appears the civilian
leadership at the Pentagon has learned absolutely nothing from the whole experience."

Non-stop, Bob Costas-type, machine gun chatter, using ugly and

DeLay to Be Subject of Ethics Complaint
"A Democratic congressman plans to file a wide-ranging ethics complaint today against
Tom DeLay (R-Squirrel), shattering the remnants of a seven-year-old, unwritten ethics
truce between the two parties and possibly nudging the House back toward a brand of
political warfare that helped topple two speakers.
The complaint, which Rep. Chris Bell (D-Tex.) said he will send to the House ethics committee,
accuses Delay of soliciting campaign contributions in return for legislative favors; laundering illegal
campaign contributions through a Texas political action committee; and improperly involving a
federal agency in a Texas partisan matter. The House's top two Democrats raised no objections
when Bell told them he would file the complaint, according to Bell's office and party leadership aides."
"They can't get me.
I'm too fast for 'em."
Wait - a Democrat is doing this?
I'll bet that's a misprint - I'll bet that Bell guy is a Republican who's fed up with Delay.
No way a Democrat would ever take a stand against Republican corruption.
