Quote of the Day
"I stood up to impeachment and beat it back.
I'm going to watch that - are you?
"It seemed a little long and I was worried
about Bush the father with this parachute thing.
Like, what if that didn't open, we would have had another week of funeral coverage. One week
of funeral coverage, after another would have been intolerable."

Shrink Calls Bush a 'Sadistic Meglomaniac'
If he read bartcop.com he would've known that years ago
A new book by a prominent Washington psychoanalyst says Bush is a "paranoid meglomaniac"
as well as a sadist and "untreated alcoholic." The doctor's analysis appears to confirm earlier reports
the President may be emotionally unstable.
Dr. Justin Frank says the President has
a ""lifelong streak of sadism, ranging from childhood pranks
(using firecrackers to explode frogs) to insulting journalists, gloating over state executions ... [and]
pumping his fist gleefully before the bombing of Baghdad."
Even worse, Dr. Frank concludes, the President's
years of heavy drinking ""may have affected his brain function
- and his decision to quit drinking without the help of a 12-step program [puts] him at far higher risk of relapse."
Dr. Frank's revelations comes on the heels
of last week's Capitol
Hill Blue exclusive that revealed increasing
concern by White House aides over Bush's emotional stability.
Barbara Bush - tabbed by some family friends as "the one who instills fear"
- had trouble connecting emotionally with her son, Frank argues.
H.W. Bush's "emotional and physical absence during his son's youth triggered
feelings of both adoration and revenge in George W."
President suffers from "character pathology," including "grandiosity" and
"megalomania" -- viewing himself, America and God as interchangeable.
"I'm not crazy - not like they say!
Hood that guy, take his pants off
and bring him to me right away!"

"The Bush administration is systematically,
relentlessly and with stubborn arrogance
making a mockery of these constitutional mandates through subterfuge, warmongering
and intimidation of a Congress that is cowed, timid, and deferential."

Bomb Kills 35 in Iraq
How 'bout them cowboys!!
The explosion in Baghdad, the deadliest attack since a bombing outside another recruiting
center in February, was the latest in a surge of attacks on U.S. coalition forces and their
Iraqi allies ahead of the transfer of sovereignty to Iraqis on June 30.
The blast scattered bodies and debris across
a four-lane highway outside Baghdad's airport.
The explosion could be heard for miles and sent a cloud of smoke over the city.
Yesterday, Randi Rhodes (AAR) made the point that under Saddam,
the Iraqi's were not
free but they were stable and had security in their homes. Under the new dictator, they're
not free, they're not stable and they never know when the invading army will break down
their front door and tie them, up and take the men away in hoods to be tortured in prison.

Strike at Iraq's Oil Industry
News so fake, it should be delivered by Jon Stewart
Insurgents struck at the heart of Iraq's economic livelihood Wednesday, blasting a major
pipeline to halt vital oil exports and killing the top security chief for the northern oilfields.
They did not!
Bart's Law #2
Any time a person or entity makes a "mistake" that puts extra money (or power) in their pocket,
expect them to make that "mistake" again and again and again. That's why refineries have fires now and then,
because a fire allows them to scream "unexpected shortage" so they can gouge us on the price of gas.
The BFEE must be reading bartcop.com and when they see something like yesterday's
> John Kerry raised $100 million
> Trouble is, Bush
can steal that much from Iraq in one day.
> 2,500,000 million barrels at $40 each = $100,000,000 .
They run to Tim Russert (R-Whore) with a phoney "They're
disrupting the pipeline," handjob footage,
and we have no choice but to believe their bluff because we have nobody in Iraq to prove the BFEE didn't
blow up some unused pipeline from a 20 year dry hole so they could hide the fact that they are stealing
$100,000,000 every f-ing day from Iraq - and we can't stop them.
Each time the BFEE leaks a fake "pipeline
sabotage" story to Timmy, that's another hundred million
dollars the BFEE doesn't have to account for, as if they were accountable to anyone or anything in any way.
Will we ever know the truth?
Bart's comic book memory says we will.
In the 60s, DC comics would produce the occasional, what if, ...imaginary
In one story, they did a "What if Lois and Clark went ahead and actually got married?"
OK, so we buy the premise that he tells her he's Superman and they marry - then what?
Lois, (they portrayed her as a late 50s, women aren't really
equal, baked cookies kind of woman)
found herself frustrated when the other wealthy elite bitches bragged about their husbands.
"My husband is the head of Houston's
"My husband is the head of cartoons on CBS Mornings"
"My husband is the head of hiring at Halliburton/BFEE."
Eventually, Lois Lane found herself in a position where she could remain silent no longer.
The next time some Mob/GOP wife bragged about how important her
husband was, Lois lost her cool
and chimed back in with, "Hey, Beee-ottch ...my husband can fly around the Earth so fast that
time goes f-ing backwards, matter of fact, that's how we got engaged."
BartCop Reader: Bart, where you going with this?
Just like Lois lane, just like the Enron trader tapes, someone
...eventually ...is going to talk.
Someone eventually will let it slip they they worked on a tanker that had no registration
and no flag and no papers when it pulled into a Port of Houston refinery station.
I think the BFEE will someday be brought to justice, but will
that be before or after
Bush ruins what's left of this once-great country?
Subject: Inevitable ulcers
I'm a 20-year-old student that reads your
site basically every day. I work a menial job selling phones
to bovine America at a BJ's wholesale club. My little kiosk is underneath a massive American flag
and near the docking station for those little motor carriages with seats. Oftentimes while I'm reading
the articles you post I'll become so angry that I walk away from the monitor. I'll look away and see
the morbidly obese puttering around under the American flag, searching for their barrels of beef jerky.
Sometimes I find it hard to bite my tongue. I want to scream to them that there is more to life than
consumption and that copy of Bruce Almighty they're holding.
I often become burnt out after reading your
site, but I keep coming back to it. I can't sit back and be
complacent with ignorance like most of my generation. I'll tell my girlfriend about certain things, and most
of it upsets her to the point that she doesn't want me to tell her about it. I'll often hear "Besides voting,
what can we do?" How do you stay positive? What more can I do besides voting and staying angry?
Thanks, and keep hammering away
Ryan, that may be the best e-mail I've gotten this year.
You came to the right place, Dude, I'm gonna fix you up.
I mentioned recently, there's no shame in playing whitey's game
when you're broke.
You have to claw your way ahead, you have to protect yourself and your family.
Being the flawed being that I am, I admit sometimes
you have to cheat to break even.
But when you have $100 million in the bank, and you're still whitey's whore for an extra 10,000,
(Tim Russert) you're just another crack whore trying to get the next better fix.
Bottom line, I say hold your nose and play whitey's game until
you have enough cash to get away.
If you take a stand every time some rich Republican bastard screws a poor black person, you'll lose your
job and your future and your kids will have it worse than you - so play whitey's game ...till you get even.
We're all whores until we get enough money to tell
the boss to go "F" himself.

"President Clinton committed allegedly perjury
and obstruction of justice, charges for which he was facing
impeachment in the house of representatives and did have that vote of impeachment in the house, was not
convicted in the senate. But no one died. No one died in the Monica Lewinsky Affair. This President has
taken this nation to war resulting in the deaths of 800-plus united states soldiers, thousands of Iraqi civilians
dead, hundreds and thousands -- thousands of Iraqi civilians permanently injured as well as soldiers on our side.
This President should be held accountable for all that. He should be held accountable for taking this nation into
this war that continues to spiral out of control. There is no real comparison to that and the Monica Affair. And if
we're going to impeach a president for alleged perjury and obstruction of justice, surely we ought to debate
whether or not we should impeach a President for taking the nation to illegal war."

Subject: O'Reilly's review of Fahrenheit 9-11
Watchin foxnews this morning before work
for some cheap laughs when that dick O'Reilly
gave some half-assed review of Fahrenheit 9/11. He made some cynical comment about
how it (wrongly, in his eyes) paints America as a police-state. But the jackass openly admits
he didn't stay to watch the whole film because "the showing was running 40 minutes late" and
he must have had some important evil tyrant meeting to attend.
Anyway, if this guy is so darn sure Mr.
Moore is fabricating stuff wouldn't he actually watch
the whole thing so he could make a decent point on his show? But then it struck me, this is what
Republicans do- when they hear the truth they stick their fingers in their ears and hope it goes away.
What a tool.

Is Kerry Catholic enough?
Archbishop Burke from St. Louis told a local television station four months ago that Kerry,
with a staunchly pro-choice voting record should "not present himself for Communion" in that archdiocese.
If that didn't seem like such a big deal
then, it does now. A handful of other church leaders have since echoed
Burke's declaration that Catholic politicians who vote against church teachings are unfit for the sacrament that
more than any other symbolizes a Catholic's ongoing connection to the faith. At least one of those leaders -
Colorado Springs Bishop Sheridan - has even suggested that unrepentant Catholics who so much as vote for
a pro-choice politician should stay away from the Communion rail.
Notice they didn't say, "Stay away from
They still want your money, even if you refuse to let thousand year-old thinking to run your life today.
If they were honest, (should I finish that sentence?) they'd say, "Any Catholic who believes in the death
penalty should leave the Church and stop giving us money. Any Catholic woman who had ever been
on The Pill should leave the Church and stop giving us money. Anyone who has ever remarried
should leave the Church and stop giving us money." But they can't bring themselves to be that honest
becausse they want/need your money.
Instead, a few political jackasses decide they want to play partisan
politics with their God.
They should be ashamed of themselves, whoring for money in Christ's name.

On the Daily Show last night, did you catch what Hassan Ibrahim said?
It was about the Palestinian/Israeli conflict
and he said something like:
"Spiritually, there is no difference between Jerusalem, Mecca, and Oklahoma!"
"The golf courses are becoming more difficult.
the fairways, and the rough is getting higher. The green speeds have
certainly increased, and the fields are so much deeper..."
-- Eldrick Woods, on why his gold game sucks so badly these days Attribution
Hey Eldrick, I can tell you're GOP from your sills-ass arguments.
Guess what, Sunshine, the courses are more difficult for everybody.
The fairways are narrower for everybody, the rough is higher for everyone,
the green speeds are faster for everyone and I don't know if he means the
physical field is "deeper" or if he's saying there's more competition, but maybe
you should stop whining these non-excuses and practice your putting a little more.
Sidebar: On last night's local news,
they said Mt Perfect was practicing ...then someone took his picture!
They said Eldrick got angry, picked up his ball and walked away mumbling cursewords under his breath.
Hey Eldrick, those hundreds of millions
of dollars you made come with a price.
You're a "media darling," so try to be gracious when a fan does something awful like taking your picture.
It would be one thing if you were eating dinner with your girlfriend and some mook runs up to your table
popping flashbulbs in your face wheile you're trying to eat. But when you're on the golf course, why don't you
'take it like a man,' as a famous harpy once used to say.

Dry Drunk George W. Bush
It was when I started noticing the extreme language that colored President Bush's speeches that I
began to wonder. First there were the terms-- "crusade" and "infinite justice" that were later withdrawn.
Next came "evil doers," "axis of evil," and "regime change", terms that have almost become clichés in the
mass media. Something about the polarized thinking and the obsessive repetition reminded me of many of
the recovering alcoholics/addicts I had treated. (A point worth noting is that because of the connection
between addiction and "stinking thinking," relapse prevention usually consists of work in the cognitive area).
Having worked with recovering alcoholics for years, I flinched at the single-mindedness and ego- and
ethnocentricity in the President's speeches.
Subject: Bishops and reality
I find the idea of Catholic Bishops endorsing
the idea that those who approve of abortion aren't fit
to receive communion to be somewhat amusing. There's an old saying - those without sin should
cast the first stone. And - even though no one really holds to those standards - I really think that
the Bishops should focus on the issue of priests having sex with children before they represent
themselves as being moral enough to give communion - let alone decide who should receive it.
Yesterday I was surfing Dave's Vegas Report and I saw his spirits link.
I went there to check on a bottle of Chinaco Anejo and saw they had rated it a 95 out of 100.
I checked the Patron Anejo,
and they only got 90 - ha ha
I checked the Herradura Anejo, and they only got 91
The Don Julio Anejo got a 90/81, but it had a great price - $45
The Sauza Anejo Tres Generaciones got a confusing 92, 88, 73.
The Jose Cuervo Gold (not
real tequila) got a 72/64 - ha ha
I guess they knew somebody on the ratings board.

The first thing to remember is that the Cold War wasn't really a war. Nuclear dente prevented World War III.
The critical moment was probably the Cuban missile crisis of 1963, in which JFK and Khrushchev backed away
from nuclear confrontation. Altogether, the struggle lasted more than 40 years, from Truman's adoption of the
doctrine of containment through the Marshall Plan, Korea, the Berlin airlift, Vietnam, the Cuban debacle,
anti-Soviet uprisings in Budapest, Prague and Warsaw to the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. There was, for example,
no fiercer anti-Communist than Jimmy Carter's national security adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski.
"The election of 2004 is about one thing only:
It is a referendum on George Bush's record.
It is our only chance to get rid of him before he can do any more damage. The election of 2004
is the most important of our lifetime. Never before has there been such a dangerous man in the
White House. His policies have ruined the economy, pitted Americans against each other,
destroyed the environment and made enemies around the world."

Reformation: Reagan Remade
You've heard the lies, now how about the truth?
Republicans scorned Clinton for lying to the American people about Monica Lewinsky, but they never blinked
when Reagan lied to us about his involvement in the illegal Iran-Contra intrigue. Reagan fans could not express
enough disgust with Clinton for having an extramarital affair, but they must have known that Reagan acquired
his second wife and their first child through just such an extramarital affair. Inconsistency like that may reflect
mere hypocrisy, but most people simply find the world so unpleasant that they cannot seem to accept it without
a veneer of comforting lies and legends. All they ask for is someone who can spin a yarn plausible enough to fool
everyone into feeling safe and satisfied. That is also the dream of the discredited Republican Party, for the benefit
of which the recent orgy of lamentation was really intended.
Poll reveals hostility to US
Only 2 per cent of the Iraqis polled in mid-May see coalition troops as liberators,
while 92 per cent said they were occupiers. In a crumb of comfort for the coalition,
only .3 per cent expressed support for Saddam Hussein.

Imagine America today if September 11 had not happened.
Would we tolerate a President who drove
us to war on the basis of lies and exaggeration?
Would we tolerate a President who used fear against his own people to get what he wanted?
Would we tolerate a President whose people destroyed deep-cover CIA agents as a means
of exacting political revenge? Would we tolerate a President who gave away billions of our tax
dollars to his closest corporate friends, under the cover of the aforementioned lies and exaggerations?
Would we tolerate a President who made the torture of fellow human beings an accepted policy,
whose advisors and attorneys concocted twisted arguments to defend such torture, who came to
the conclusion that the President is absolutely, totally and without exception above the law?
Put another way, would we have tolerated
any of this had it happened during the Clinton administration?
Certainly not. Had Clinton done even one of these things, he would have been impeached and removed from
office, deservedly so, and none of us would have been required to hear about stained dresses and thong underwear.
That was then, and this is now.
