Quote of the Day
"I loved the movie because it showed
"When I hear this coming from Dick Cheney,
who was a coward, who would not serve during
the Vietnam War, it makes my blood boil. Those of us who served and those of us who went in
the military don't like it when someone like a Dick Cheney comes out and he wants to be tough.
Yeah, he'll be tough. He'll be tough with somebody else's blood, somebody else's kids. But not
when it was his turn to go."
--Sen. Tom Harkin, taking the gloves off to bitch-slap the Chicken-in Chief, Attribution
Tom, I love hearing the truth.
Where have you been the last four years?
leads Bush -- despite Nader
"John Kerry has pulled ahead of Bush, even with Ralph Nader accounted for, according to a new poll.
Kerry led Bush 47-43 percent (with distractions) in the Zogby poll. Minus those contenders, Kerry and Edwards
were favored 50-43 percent over Smirk and Snarl in the November 2 vote."
"The Americans have turned the holy city into
a ghost town. They are now seen as full of hatred against
Najaf and the Shia. Nothing I know of will change this. I do not understand why America craves crisis.
A peaceful solution to the confrontation with Muqtada could have been reached. We were hoping that
Prime Minister Iyad Allawi would lead the way, but he sided with oppression. There is no wisdom to
what the Americans and Allawi are doing. The consequences are unthinkable."

Chavez and Bill Clinton's Band
by Greg Palast
What the affable president sees in his reflection, beyond the ribbons of office, is a
"negro e indio" -- a "Black and Indian" man, dark as a cola nut, same as the landless and,
until now, the hopeless. For the first time in Venezuela's history, the 80% Black-Indian
population elected a man with skin darker than the man in the Jaguar.
So why, with a huge majority of the electorate
behind him, twice in elections and today with
a nearly two-to-one landslide victory in a recall referendum, is Hugo Chavez in hot water with
our democracy-promoting White House?
"We've still got about 80 days to go in this
campaign, and Kerry has already made about
$2.2 trillion of new promises. And so I said, 'Well, how are you going to pay for it?' And he said,
'Oh, don't worry, we'll tax the rich.' You've heard that rhetoric before, haven't you?"
--Dubya, reading the script he got from Condi Attribution
He's right - we heard that in 1992, from Bill Clinton, just before the greatest economic boom ever.
I'm glad Salk wasn't a Bush
Laura Bush could not have expected to end the argument over stem cell research with her tepid proclamation:
"We don't even know that stem cell research will provide cures for anything -- much less that [cures] are very close."
Do you see that next hill? We're not going to climb it because there may be nothing worthwhile on the other side.
That's not how Americans approach life or
the world, of course. We climb the hill. So what Mrs. Bush is really doing
is making a persuasive casefor upending her husband's restrictive policies, which have severely limited research on
therapeutic cloning in this country.
Jonas Salk could not have known his concoction
of weakened polio viruses would protect against the deadly disease.
But he certainly believed it would. And millions of Americans dared to believe with him. Many parents were worried
by the prospect of intentionally infecting their children with a lessened strain of a hideous virus. But faced with an
epidemic, they made the leap. And they ended up protecting their children from the scourge.
A shout out to JSY in PittburgH, my good friend who was the brains behind Salk's discoveries.
A shot of Chinaco to your brains and bravery, Sir!
Subject: Kerry's gaffe
You're right on with what you've said about
Kerry's "sensitive" speech.
The people reading your site might be fairly intelligent people who can see
Cheney's remarks for the misquoted out-of-context lies they are but I'm afraid
that most of America cannot.
Perhaps what the Kerry campaign needs is
a list of "Seven Dirty Words" to never say,
ala what the FCC has. Sensitive would have to be one of the top words on such a list.
Sean, well put. You phrased that perfectly.
I'm catching heat for "buying the GOP lie,"
which isn't true, but America might be buying it.
People are scared and they know another 9-11 is coming, and they don't want these killers
to be treated "nice." They know Bush is a blood-thirsty, giggling murderer, and that's what
many of them want when it comes time to deal with Al Qaeda.
...and let's hope Kerry learns to dial back the "Bush did the right thing" gaffes, too.
Best way to measure - who killed the most innocent people in the last 2 years?

rally the armies of compassion."

9/11 Provokes Arab Reactions
"...attendance is at blockbuster proportions"
"Fahrenheit 9/11" is provoking strong Arab reaction. Kuwait banned it, Jordan tried
to cut it, Syria has not decided, and Saudi commentators are denouncing it.
Many Arab moviegoers say with a twinge of
envy that they wish the region, where
free speech is for the most part restricted, had its own Moore. Some say it reinforces
their bad image of the United States and shows Americans what their own media does not.
I guess compared to Saudi Arabia America
has free speech, but compared to ten years ago?
This is a closed society and the media is run by the illegal, fascist government.
"I appreciate your support..."
Subject: Thanks for making August our month
This week, you proved two things. First,
the right-wing attack machine cannot act without consequences.
Your action has ensured that they are held accountable for their lies -- we will not yield an inch.
Second, the common wisdom is wrong -- August
is our month. Your support of the Democratic Party
has made all the difference in eliminating the Bush campaign's August fundraising advantage.
Next week, I'll send you an important campaign
update that lays out our winning strategy for the next
two months -- and how you will play a vital role in that victory. Thank you again for all that you do.
Let's get to work!

Instead of fixing the system, the fix is in. We now know that goof-ups and bone-headed moves
started the power outage rolling but it's spread, from a few tree branches out of Ohio to a third
of the continent, occurred because power companies -- First Energy and Niagara-Mohawk to
name two -- had slashed staffing and maintenance.
The under-manning and the under-spending
all occurred beneath the banner of "deregulation."
In the bad old days of bureaucrats with thick rule books, the government told the power companies
exactly how much to spend on repairs. Under "deregulation," the rules went out the windows and
repair cash was carted off as special dividends to stockholders.

Shirley Manson's Diary
It's been a long time since I wrote in this journal and so very much has happened and yet
at the same time so very little has changed. Bush is still wreaking havoc with antagonistic
foreign policy whilst Blair continues to deny that there's even a remote possibility that he
might have led the UK into an invasion of Iraq under false pretenses. Hundreds of thousands
of people in Sudan are still falling victim to fully fledged genocide whilst the so-called-civilised
world sits back on its heels doing precious little about it. Power and money remain the corrupting
influences and common people around the world suffer immeasurably as a consequence.
Subject: Pull yourself together, man
You sound like you're losing it. First
of all, Kerry is ahead of Bush in many polls.
Kerry is ahead of Bush in Florida! And, just to make you feel a little bit better,
when I was on msnbc.com Tuesday, the live poll of 150,000 people showed 68%
for Kerry, 30% for Bush, and 2% for "Nadir."
There are many people (I'm NOT one of them)
that think that going to war was
a good idea. There are probably a lot more people that think we should have
gone to war and gotten rid of Saddam than think we shouldn't have gone.
You think that Kerry is being skewered now
for being a flip-flopper?
Let him say that he was wrong in his vote!
Thousands of votes (at least) would go up in smoke.
He is doing what is best.
Could you POSSIBLY help the cause by giving him your support?
It really just sounds like you're out of your gourd, or are trying to be sensationalistic.
Faith, if I said Kerry was doing a great job I would be lying.
I'd like to say that, but too many people know that's not true.
Saying Bush did the right thing by invading Iraq was a doozy.
He just excused the 1,000 dead and the never-ending quagmire.
You might not know him, he's a famous swimmer from the 72 Olympics,
(where the PLO thought they'd prove their barbarism by introducing terrorism.)
Spitz won like 22 gold medals in 1972, and the Russian coach asked,
what's your secret?"
He said, "The secret is my thick mustache," and the Russian coach said, WTF?"
Spitz told the Russian coach that the mustache acted as a drainage
system, pushing oncoming water
to the left and right which made breathing easier and it also improved his vision.
He was lying.
He told somebody this week, Playboy, TV Guide - somebody, that his coaches or trainers or the IOC,
sombody, told him to shave the mustache becasue it wasn't appropriate, so Spitz kept it to spite them.
Shot of Chinaco to Mark Spitz for having a little rebellion in his heart.
Wish the senate Democrats were as balsy as Mustache Boy.
So - is that all there is?
On bartcop.com we deliver.
Spitz said the next time he saw the Russian swim team, they all had mustaches.
I told Mrs Bart that story, and while accidentally watching a
few minutes of Olympics swimming
on NBC with Mrs Bart, she said, "The Russians don't have mustaches this year."
Maybe they read Playboy or TV Guide.
Subject: About John Kerry's "Sensitivity" remarks
I understand completely what your readers
have been saying about Bush and his minions taking Kerry's
"sensitivity" remarks out of context, but I am also aware that you are trying to tell everyone that these dirty
bastards will do everything in their power to twist, distort and even outright lie about anything and everything
Kerry will or won't say in order to win the male and/or redneck vote. Hasn't the Kerry campaign learned
anything from his wife's speech and how the rethug reporter tried to make her comment on a negative
statement she did not even make? These minions will stop at nothing to make the Democrats look bad,
so the last thing Kerry needs to do is to give them any bits that make him look weak and girlish.
Yes, I like that Kerry is smart and intellectual and is capable of reasoned thinking, and these traits are
quite valuable when one is acutally governing. However, in a campaign, these do not serve us well at all,
especially since we are in a culture that has been dumbed down to the point of being nearly brain dead.
If Kerry is going to win this election, every statement he makes needs be factual, but simple, concise,
and to the point, and it has to hit the voter straight in the gut and not his head. I don't understand why
we are arguing or being defensive about what lies Bush is saying about Kerry when we have the whole
failed presidency of Bush to bludgeon the voters with and get them over to our side. We have the hard
facts here! It's about time we used them to hammer our case home!
Don't EVER tell the truth in a political campaign.
People want to be lied to.
I read something about Bill Maher since the last issue.
He said he's the first guy who ever said, "Sucks"
on network TV. It was around 1988-90.
He said something like, "Waiting in line at the DMV sucks," ...something harmless like that.
When he left and went backstage, he said everyone was ashen-faced
"You can't say 'sucks' on network TV," they told him, and Bill's like ...WTF?
Bill Maher, always being a little too frank for the uptight, religio-lie-to-ourselvers.
Three days later, Johnny said, "...and
that sucks" and the NBC censors let it go,
thus "sucks" became part of the accepted vernacular amongst the church going public.
Funny how the Republican right is sooo terribly offended
if someone uses the language that most
Americans use each and every day, and if you think I'm lying, ask Dick go-fuck-yourself Cheney.
That entire Janet Jackson handjob was the best example ever.
A thousand dead soldiers in Iraq is just fine, but a titty on TV for a full second?
Why, it's time to get involved and change the direction his nation is heading.
It's fine and dandy if Bush's lies kill a thousand brave patriots,
but a flash of titty
gets the Christians demanding change because, ...after all, ...which is more awful?

Say War Makes Them Lose Jobs
I have an idea how to get even - vote the bastard out
National Guard and Reserve troops who have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan find new battles
with their civilian employers at home. Jobs were eliminated, benefits reduced and promotions forgotten.
Larry Gill couldn't return as a police officer
in Thomasville, Ala., because a grenade injured a foot,
making it impossible for him to chase criminals or duck bullets.
Jerry Chambers says budget cuts eliminated his job as a substance abuse prevention consultant.
Ron VanderWal was told his job as a CSR
was eliminated. He was hired after filing a lawsuit.
Getting your old job back is nothing compared
to putting your marriage back together. Many of those
returning aren't the same people they were when they left. Plus children have been born, loved ones have
been buried while they were gone, their spouses have new lives, making decisions alone instead of as a team.
...all because the spoiled little boy saw something he wanted to steal.
Subject: Democrats attacking Bart
yeah bartcop, one of the more depressing
things i have seen the past year is those
democrats who say you back bush because you criticized kerry's mistakes.
when it comes to american elections, the only thing that counts is image and spin.
kerry needs to be careful not to say things (words such as "sensitive" in relation to terrorism)
that can be picked up and used by the bushmen to score points. and dressing up in funny costumes!
jeez man, didn't these guys learn anything from the dukakis fiasco.
when you try to set them straight, they just turn on you!
where are the street-smart democrats who know how to run an election campaign?
Rove & Co. know how to play that dirty game, Kerry had better learn it or it's 4 more yrs of Bush.
and you are right about the debates. they are set up now so kerry will lose. brit hume will roast kerry
with Qs like- "will you continue to flip-flop for the rest of the campaign, Sen. kerry?" while handing
bush easy ones such as , "Mr Prezident, Sir, what is your plan to continue success in iraq,
getting revenge on saddam hussein for his 9-11 attack on the usa?" that's about it.
I wish I knew what Kerry's people were thinking when they signed
up for the "Gored-style" debates.
Why can't they argue like two men, without the clock, the cutesy whore-press questions and the circus?
The silly-ass clock prevents either man from actually speaking. They'll time it so each guy can repeat
his standard 30-second sound bite and they might as well do this debate via e-mail.
Why have an audience there, besides to challengeg both sides to
interrupt the loudest?
The Democrats will politely clap, while the Republicans will stomp, scream and shout,
making America think "Bush has grabbed the hearts of the undecided voters."
In gambling, there an old saying, "We'll play by your rules if
I get to keep score."
Kerry agreed to their rules AND they get to keep score.
Low on tequila
In our last Cinco de Mayo Show, I was sipping on
nine kinds of tequila.
Those nine have been here since around Tommy Mack's visit in March 03.
I have these nine bottles of luxury tequila that have about a quarter inch each in them.
People ask, "Bart, why aren't the radio shows funnier?"
All radio shows (besides the Vegas Pokerfest) are done straight and sober.
One school of thought is that good comedy can come from the uninhibited mind.
Bottom line, I'm itching to do a "funny" show so I guess I need
to mow some more
lawns for the neighbors to come up with enough money to buy some more tequila.
Glass sliver removed
About two weeks ago, I was barefoot and stepped on the tiniest
sliver of glass you never saw.
For two weeks, I walked around with the chunk (now it's a chunk) of glass in my foot, which is
the same bad leg that had the bungled statute-of-limitations-has-run-out butchery on my knee last time,
magnified by the still-smarting sensation of having Sir Lance-a-Knee having fun with his Turkey Wattle.
...but the good news is, after the stabbing of Sir Lance-a-Knee wears off, my knee feels a lot better.
So I'm lying on the living room floor face down with my foot palms-up
in Mrs Bart's surgical lap.
She got a needle and starting rootin' around for that that sliver of glass, and each time she jabbed
the glass further into my foot, I'd scream like a senate democrat dreaming he angered Karl Rove.
She dug, I screamed.
She dug a hole you could fit a bb in.
Thunderbolt hits me in the head!
Soak the foot in warm water for an hour and try again.
She dug, I screamed.
I told her, "If you can't get it, our next stop is the local Minor
Emergency Center," so she dug real deep
one last time ( I bit a chunk out of the carpet, but we think we can glue it back in ) and she was able to
pop that sliver of glass out of my foot on the next try. That alone was worth getting married.
After that bb hole closes and heals, my foot's going to feel
a lot better.
And after my last double lance Thursday, I'll be walking "normal" until something else breaks.
So it's Springtime in K-Drag!

Geez, will someone of stature in the Democratic Party please step forward and start defending John Kerry?
When I say "defend", I mean to go on the
attack against Bush and Cheney. This is getting ridiculous.
There is an endless litany of good material to use against Bush.
As but one example, the economic news is just horrific right now. Where are the Democratic charges that
Bush is destroying our economy? The Congressional Budget Office confirms that the Bush tax cuts strongly
favor the very wealthy. This point should be driven home by Democrats, over and over and over again.
We will not win this election by taking a defensive stance on all issues. Let's go on the attack.

on the Swift Boat Veterans for Bush
by Jim Rassmann, the guy Kerry saved to get the medal
When I surfaced, all the swift boats had left, and I was alone taking fire from both banks. To avoid the incoming fire,
I repeatedly swam under water as long as I could hold my breath, attempting to make it to the north bank of the river.
I thought I would die right there. The odds were against me avoiding the incoming fire and, even if I made it out of the river,
I thought I'd be captured and executed. Kerry must have seen me in the water and directed his driver, Del Sandusky,
to turn the boat around. Kerry's boat ran up to me in the water, bow on, and I was able to climb up a cargo net to the
lip of the deck. But, because I was nearly upside down, I couldn't make it over the edge of the deck. This left me hanging
out in the open, a perfect target. John, already wounded by the explosion that threw me off his boat, came out onto the bow,
exposing himself to the fire directed at us from the jungle, and pulled me aboard.
For his actions that day, I recommended John for the Silver Star, our country's third highest award for bravery under fire.
Subject: Source help
Love your site -- I rely on it for my daily dose of infuriation.
I have a question that I hope you could
answer for me. I have no doubt the Iraq invasion
was solely for the purpose of pumping the country's oil into ChimpBoy and Pals pockets.
You frequently cite the 90 million a day
figure - a fact I bring up whenever I'm discussing
the issue with the idiot warmongers in my family. What I could really use is a source -- not
so much one that backs up the 2 million barrels a day figure, but rather one that will provide
proof that this oil is being pumped by Chimp's buddies and that they are reaping the financial
benefits of it. I have a few uncles I need to shut up.
So much appreciated and please keep up the
Brian, I can't prove they're stealing the
$90M a day, but since it's (apparently) a secret, what else can we
assume but that it's none of our business, and knowing where that $90M a day goes only helps bin Laden.
$90M a day is a lot of money for a starving, bombed and broken country.
That's roughly $3 billion dollars a month,
but nobody knows where it went because there's a war on
and we all know how tough bookkeeping is during a war. With each beheading, the BFEE can argue
bookkeeping in these horrific times is simply impossible, kind like justifying Halliburton's expense report.
It's not up to Tequilaboy in Oklahoma to explain how that $3 billion a month disappeared.
That's Bush's job and the Democrats are supposed to hold his feet to the fire.
Eldrick Woods Has More Major Frustration
Standing over his tee shot on the par-3 seventh, he settled in over his ball
when he heard the click from a news photographer behind the tee box.

the club as soon as he made contact.
"Good (expletive) swing," he growled. "Great focus."
Subject: Bart, Jon Stewart agrees, and screamed, "Kerry's TRYING to lose!"
After he played the clip of Bush challenging
Kerry to say "yes" or "no" to invading Iraq if he knew what
is now known, and then Stewart says "Kerry should hit this one out of the park!" and cuts to Kerry saying
"yes" he would have still voted to let Bush invade Iraq....Stewart just lost it.
He was incredulous and cried out "He's TRYING to LOSE!"
Is there no one in the Kerry camp who watches Jon?
This is why I was completely depressed when
Clark did not get the VP pick...
Clark woulda kicked Kerry's ass into fighting shape. I'm afraid of what Kerry will say or do in the debates...
I thought it would be REAL bad for Bush, but Kerry ENJOYS capitulating to the enemy framing the questions,
and then giving the WRONG answer!! I don't feel good about any of this.
Was the last time Kerry has been in a fight
was over 30 years ago???
That is why Clark was needed....fighting was fresh to him.
Hell, even Kerry's wife seems like more of a fighter than HIM.

Kill Bill Part II
Friday night, me & Mrs. Bart saw Kill
Bill Part II for the first time on DVD.
Good movie, but that's not what I'm writing about.
The surprise Uma pulled on Daryl Hannah in the trailer fight - wasn't that the most unexpected thing ever?
Mrs Bart is still laughing - she loves both Kill Bills and is now a big Tarantino fan.
Sidebar in a sidebar:
I knew that was Sam Jackson sitting at the wedding chapel piano player.
You'll think I'm lying, but I could tell by the way he held his cigarette that it was him..
Towards the end. Uma has killed everyone who needed dying - except
Not sure why, but she was looking for him in Mexico or Central America - somewhere.
The soundtrack suddenly started sounding familiar. I turned to Mrs Bart and said,
"Mrs Bart, that sounds like our good friend Rick del Castillo playing."
We decided I didn't know enough about Latino/Salsa/Flaminco/Ethinic/Passion
music to judge.
As the movie ended, we watched the credits for a clue to what band played the del Castillo-sounding music.
The credits said, "Music by Robert Rodriquez," the famous director
and "The RZA."
I said to Mrs Bart, "Mrs Bart, Robert Rodriquez directed 'Once Upon a Time in Mexico,'"
which featured our good friend Rick's band, but maybe he knows more than one excellent
Latino/Salsa/Flaminco/Ethinic/Passion band, but those RZA dudes sure sound like Rick's band."
Saturday night, we still had the DVD in the player, so I clicked
on the Kill Bill II "Special Featrures."
Among the listings was "Chinga playing live at the Kill Bill II Premier." In the director's comments,
Tarantino was going on about the 3-piece Mariachi bands that play at Mexican Restaurants, so I
suspected "Chinga" might be one of them. So I clicked on that and began to prepare supper..
I was partly paying attention to the TV as I whipped up some Train
Station Fried Chicken,
and I heard a voice I've become familiar with - and I blurted out, "That's Alex from Rick's band."
Sure enough, there was Robert Rodriguez on stage playing guitar with Del Castillo.
"Chinga" is apparently Del Castillo with Rodriquez on third guitar.
On the Del
Castillo website, they mention that they've been on two
Mexico and Mariachis
and Rodriquez's Once Upon a Time in Mexico, but there's no mention of their Kill Bill Part II soundtrack
That's confusing to a low IQ guy like myself, because at least
financially, Kill Bill II is the biggest movie
of the three, but, ...since "The RZA" and Chingons" appeared in Kill Bill II and not "Del Castillo," per se,
I'll bet some lawyers got involved just to deny the Del Castillo band from being able to say, "That's us!"
So I'll say it for them.
But why the discrepancy?
...why am I asking you?
I should call my good friend Rick and ask him. (That was
him in BCR #50, part 4)
One thing - I'll be sure to call late in the day.
Rick doesn't like being unexpectedly jarred out of bed too early, even if it's Julie McCullough.
Tuesday, the 17th, Del Castillo at Orlando's
Hard Rock, the place that gives Rude Rich serious wood.
If you're in Orlando, drop by and see Del Castillo, and tell Rick that Bart says, "Hey!"
New York to unleash reighteous fury on GOP
"John Flanigan and Tim Doody are two other protest co-ordinators aiming to make 31 August
a day of direct action. They said they would shun the idea of applying for any form of permit.
'We already have a permit. It is called the American constitution. The idea that I have to ask
for permission to protest my own government is ridiculous,' Flanigan said. Sitting on the steps
of St Mark's church in the East Village, the pair typified the anger felt by protesters that the
Republicans are holding their convention in a city that prides itself on its liberalism. 'This has
really shaken everyone out of their complacency. People are outraged,' said Doody.
Polls support that reaction. A recent survey
showed that 83 per cent of New Yorkers did not
want the convention in their city. 'We all live here,' said Angela Coppola, an office worker who
has joined the protest groups. 'We were the victims of 11 September and now they are coming
to terrorise us with their asinine convention.'"
Maybe someone will remind America that
Bush stood on the rubble that still contained
bodies and swore to get bin Laden, then
abandon that vow to steal Saddam's oil.
