"Bush sat on the aisle in the second row, next to his wife, Pickles. When Bush's face
appeared on giant screen TVs, many in the crowd outside St. Peter's booed and whistled."

Goss launches another review of Bush's CIA
He's certain to be fair and balanced with his boss
CIA Director Porter Goss has ordered an internal review to determine why doubts about Curveball,
a key source of prewar intelligence on Iraq, were not shared with policymakers, an official said Friday.
Information from Curveball, a drunken and delusional German agent who provided intelligence on WMDs,
allowed the BFEE to fabricate reasons to steal Iraq's oil.
A fake handjob of a presidential commission
assigned to investigate U.S. intelligence on WMDs reported
"In contrast to the boooing that hit Bush at the Pope's funeral, Bill Clinton was mobbed
and greeted with adoring chants of U.S.A.!, U.S.A.!, U.S.A.! As Mr. Clinton went for a walk,
...shoppers, tourists having lunch at outdoor cafes and Italian business people going to meetings
all stopped to greet him. People starting yelling "Bill, Bill, Bill," and a few shouted "U.S.A.!"
--Al Rodgers, "Clinton Mobbed U.S.A! U.S.A."
Mexico loses stability - danger ahead
Presidential Hopeful Resigned to Jail
Mexico's most popular politician plans to give himself up soon and go to jail, after political opponents
ruled he must face trial for a minor crime that could screw the 2006 presidential elections for the Americas.
Mexico City Mayor
Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, a combative leftist who is the clear favorite
to win the polls,
While other Latin American countries
like Argentina and Venezuela have suffered upheaval in recent years,
That steadiness may now be at risk, Wall Street analysts fear. Mexican stocks are down sharply in recent weeks.
Subject: being consistent
One thing that most people believe about George Bush is that he's consistent. But I'm not sure being
consistent is going to help persuade people to like his Social Security reforms. When you look at his
legacy as president so far, it doesn't look real good. He turned the worlds biggest surplus into the world's
biggest deficit. He ignored the warnings about bin Laden, who is - still free. We went to war in Iraq on
bad intelligence. Medicare reform is a failure. Taxes are up, the dollar is down. The flat worlders want
to control the schools. And the government wants to put tracking chips (RFIDs) in federally issued
ID cards to spy on everything we do.
So - do we want Bush to be consistent with his past when it comes to Social Security? I don't think so!
I think we should put it off another four years and focus on paying off the national debt. I don't think we
can afford to risk Social Security with someone who has a bad track record.
San Francisco, CA
"It was a bitter-sweet reminder how, not long ago, the US was both respected and liked abroad.
What a difference five years has made. Imagine if Bush tried strolling down those same streets in Rome,
or any other European city, yesterday. Do you think he’d make to the end of the first block without
someone spitting on him or worse? Not since Hitler has a national leader been so hated by most Europeans."
--Stephen Pizzo, Attribution
Bart, a Texas REPUBLICAN gave this speech in the house of representatives last week.
JCSubject: Who's better off?
by Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas)
the Iraqis did not participate in the 9/11 attacks; Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein were enemies and did not
conspire against the United States; our security was not threatened; we were not welcomed by cheering Iraqi crowds
as we were told; and Iraqi oil has not paid any of the bills. Congress failed to declare war, but instead passed a
wishy-washy resolution citing UN resolutions as justification for our invasion. After the fact we’re now told the
real reason for the Iraq invasion was to spread democracy, and that the Iraqis are better off. Anyone who questions
the war risks being accused of supporting Saddam Hussein, disapproving of democracy, or “supporting terrorists.”
It’s implied that lack of enthusiasm for the war means one is not patriotic and doesn’t support the troops. In other
words, one must march lock-step with the consensus or be ostracized.
Oil was approximately $27 a barrel before the war, now it’s more than twice that. I wonder who benefits from this?
All Republicans are insane, but some are willing to fight.
The Democrats will get back the White House and Congress if someone hands it to them.
Rape Cardinal to vote for new Pope
Law's role in Rome sparks outrage in U.S.
As a cardinal under 80, the Rape Cardinal will enter the conclave to elect a new pope.
Isn't that like letting the inmates voting with the Parole Board?
Like Nixon picking Ford, won't Law vote for a "wink, wink" Pope?
Subject: Your radio show
Just finished show 70, which would be my first. It was even better than I could have believed.
I appreciate your self-depreciation thing, but it had me believing you had some freaky high pitched
weirdass voice, and since you are from OK, I imagined you would have a huge hick accent (my hick
accent is small), as I associate all red states with the southern hick Georgia accent, which is about 2
or 3 notches better than the KORESH forsaken New England accent (from about Boston up to Maine
-their speech is the most annoying sound in the entire world, GA-FL-TX drawl is a distant second).
Dude, your voice is perfect for radio, I was so pleasantly surprised--the few posts on the websites
had me prepared to listen to a straight freak. And the lead in with the personal touch was a nice way
to get into my first show. I don't know about the rest of the subscribers, but getting a feel for your
life is very important to me, it makes the show great in my book.
You are doing an incredible thing. I tried to remember how I came across your site 1-2 years ago,
but could not do it. I also have wondered how I could have eagerly anticipated a new posting every day
for all that time, but it never occurred to me to listen to your show (not even the free snips you throw out),
or why I never thought to throw some loot your way. After all, you have provided a daily dose of sanity
nearly every day of my corporate slavery for the last 1-2 years, I throw you a meager donation and am
rewarded with 6 mos free???
Thanks for what you do, I will hit the tip jar when I can.
It is a good idea to have it up every day, it will get idiots like me thinking.
Don't ever stop swinging that hammer!!

GOP consultant marries his boyfriend
Yet he works to elect fascists who call him "faggot"
Artie Finkelstein, a prominent Republican consultant who has directed a series of hard-edged political
campaigns to elect conservatives Nazi bastards over the last 25 years, said Friday that he had married his male partner
in a civil ceremony at his home in Massachusetts.
Mr. Finkelstein, 59, who has made a
practice of defeating Democrats by trying to demonize them as liberal,
name his boyfriend said, "This is the same man who was the architect of Jesse Helms's political rise."
"I think a walk in faith constantly confronts doubt, as faith becomes more mature.
And you constantly confront, you know, questions. My faith is strong. There is
no doubt in my mind there is a living God. And no doubt in my mind that the Lord,
Christ, was sent by the Almighty. No doubt in my mind about that."
--Dubya, who also had "no doubt" that Saddam had WMDs Attribution

Subject: Bart attacking veterans
Your question about veterens returning home with lost limbs reveals your ignorance about military culture.
If you ask them, most of these guys will tell you that what they really want to do is get rehabilitated and
go back to their units. No matter how bad it is over there, they are, for the most part, pretty gung-ho
about "doing their jobs." So you can't really blame them for not "warning" the people behind them.
As far as they are concerned, fighting in Iraq is a noble effort, and if you lose your arm or leg doing it,
it is all the more noble.
This is hardly surprising; anyone who has seen boot camp up close understands the socialization process
of joining the military is pretty much a brainwashing operation. Additionally, the realities of combat only
serve to reinforce military indoctrination, and cause them to justify both their efforts and the war.
After all, once you have killed a few dozen people and had your arm has been blown off, what is going to
cause more cognitive dissonance; believing that you were fighting and injured in a fight for freedom, or
believing that you tossed your life away to help Bush's dad get rich?
Given the psycological incentives, what is surprising is that any injured vets escape both their indoctrination
and overcome the awful reality of how badly they have been used, and speak out at all.
Five years from now, they will have had much more time to reflect. At that point, they will have grown much
more accustomed to life with their injury. I will be amazed if many of these, who are now very gung-ho,
have not grown disillusioned and bitter. But I sure as hell won't blame them for not having everything
figured out in the immediate aftermath of their injury. Despite your rant, I suspect you won't either.

Hey, unlike Bush's fancy-pants hooker,
*I* never made any claims about being a military insider.
I'm jusy saying by remaining silent while the carnage continues, disabled vets seem to be
giving up their chance to prevent that which they'll surely claim later is a world of horrors.
Centrist Democrats warn liberals
Do we want to win or lose 50 states next time?
The Democrats' postelection war about what they should stand for is heating up again,
with centrists challenging liberals to "real fights" within the party about staking out a tougher
position against terrorism.
"To win back the White House in 2008, our party must change. We must be willing to discard
political strategies that may make us feel good but that keep falling short. We must finally reject
the false choice between exciting our base and expanding our appeal, because unless we both
motivate and persuade, we'll lose every time," said DLC's Al From and Bruce Reed, who clearly
have no idea why we lost so bad in 2004.
There might be some validity to what they're saying, but we lost because we refused to fight.
When our 2008 candidate says, "We must fight - like proper ladies," all we can do in plan for 2012.
When our 2008 candidate says, "You cannot mention GOP crimes or abuses at our convention,"
that means we've chosen to forfeit instead of fighting back for the third cycle in a row.
If Hillary ruins, Bill will coach her to an easy and certain victory - if they don't murder them.
Halliburton frantically working to end public relations nightmare
Halliburton initiated a new advertising campaign this week to counter the never-ending saga of bad news
that plagues the company, AdWeek reported. The ads, in both video and print format, will attempt to
"educate those who didn't know what to think about all the charges," a Halliburton spokesperson said,
referring to the numerous ongoing government investigations and charges of wrongdoing.
During the 2004 presidential campaign, Halliburton complained that widespread criticism of its behavior
was "political" and designed only to embarrass Dick Cheney. But, ironically, most of the criticism came
from officials inside Bush's Justice and Defense departments. Most of the government investigations from
2004 continue today even though the presidential campaign has ended.
So, it seems logical that Halliburton would embark on a new ad campaign to praise itself.

Developing a medical milestone
The Salk Youngner vaccine:
Fifty years free from fear of polio
You have to be old to get how big that is
In the late 1940s, however, medical science produced the tools needed to conquer the polio virus
and Youngner, then beginning his career as a microbiologist, was in position to exploit them.
Working for years in a basement laboratory
in Oakland, he and a group of dogged researchers
The polio vaccine was "safe, effective and potent."
Before Dr. Youngner kicked polio's ass, the worst victims ended up like this:
Unable to breathe without being locked in this forever coffin.
Thank you for being a genius that stayed on polio's ass, Dr. Younger!
Subject: your page and radio show
I just got through listening to show 72. Not bad. My comments on your radio show,
try to tone down your anti-religious rhetoric. I am religious, though not a big fan of organised religion.
I know it's hard and must seem awful redundant, but you need to keep hammering on Bush and his ilk.
I really don't care about Shaivo, Jackson, any of them. We have a thief and murderer in the White House
and anything pales in comparison.
Keep Hammering and good luck

heard you're going to Maui and you're a little tight on cash.
I've never really contributed much to your site and I'd like to pay
for one night's room for you and Mrs. Bart in a nice place.
Just let me know where you'd like to stay and I'll have that covered for you.
Hear from you soon.
Dude, that was way cool - thanks.
We were hoping to do at least one day with an ocean view,
and thanks to you we're going to do that.
