"People who listen to Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, they like red meat. It's very hard for
a liberal to throw red meat simply because the issues are more complex than you can reduce
down to a soundbite, although I think we have to learn to speak in that new grammar."

He's right - so many liberal voices sound like John Kerry's put-me-to-sleep speeches.
Democrats need to learn the language most Americans use.
'Happy Thoughts' Death Trap
by Robert Parry at consortiumnews.com
A macabre "Peter Pan" syndrome has driven the Iraq War from the start, with Bush and
his neoconservative advisers acting as if happy thoughts about an easy victory and some
pixie dust of propaganda would let them soar over the realities on the ground. This wishful
thinking has turned Iraq into a death trap for American troops and tens of thousands of Iraqis.
Rather than look at the military prospects realistically, Bush and his advisers pursued a consistent
policy of wishful thinking, deceiving the American public about the war's cost in both money and blood,
and ultimately deluding even themselves.
Reality was banished not only from the pre-war WMD justifications, it's been barred from
mid-war assessments, too. But the hard truth - recognized from the start by many military experts
- was that U.S. chances for prevailing in Iraq were never very good and certainly would come at a high price.

GOP lawmaker calls for Iraq pullout
"When I look at the number of men and women who have been killed -- it's
almost over 1,700 now,
in addition to close to 12,000 have been severely wounded -- and I just feel that the reason of going in
for WMDs, the ability of the Iraqis to make a nuclear weapon, that's all been proven that it was never there,"
Rep. Walter Jones of North Carolina said on ABC's "This Week."
Just like Vietnam, the tide is starting to turn. The question is, how many thousands of soldiers
will we lose because the always-faithfull GOP will stand with Bush while the scared-to-death
Democrats are afraid to speak.
You're heard it here a hundred times, we have to depend on the GOP to change this country
because the Democrats can't summon the courage. As time drags on, as hundreds more soldiers
are shipped home in body bags, the GOP will increasingly call for an end to Bush's nightmare.
If the scared-bunny, pink-tutu Democrats could somehow summon some courage, they could
save hundreds or thousands of lives, but asking a Democrat to come up with some courage is
like asking Antartica to come up with some fresh Bixby corn - it just ain't gonna happen.
Subject: Why Kerry got his ass kicked
To put it simply, because "anybody but Bush" was insufficient as a campaign theme.
It makes people ask the question, "ANYBODY but Bush? How about a Flat Stanley cutout?
Is that better than Bush?" If John Kerry showed even 1/10 of the fighting spirit Howard Dean had,
he would have mopped the floor with that idiot fake Texan from Connecticut.
I probably disagree, but you know me - not one to argue.
Bush was a total moron who ruined a great economy and lied us into a war and pretty much
turned Clinton's Paradise into Bush's Hell and Kerry decided answering the Swift Boat liars
wasn't necessary and then he took the summer off and told his convention to "play nice."
That's why the Republicans are shitting-in-their-pants terrified of our new DNC chairman,
and will do whatever they have to do to take the wind out of his sails (it ain't working), whereas
if we had a Kerryite in there, they'd just laugh and get on with their business of destroying America.
I agree 100 percent with that.
If Dean was a mindless buffoon, Unka Dick wouldn't be attacking him.
They have to de-sac ANY leftie who shows some balls.

Former Bushie says 9-11 likely inside job
A former chief economist in the Labor Department during Bush's first term now believes
the official story about the collapse of the WTC is 'bogus,' saying it is more likely that a
controlled demolition destroyed the Twin Towers and adjacent Building No. 7.
"It is hard to exaggerate the importance of a scientific debate over the cause(s) of the collapse
of WTC and building 7," said Morgan Reynolds, Ph.D this week from his Texas A&M office.
"Only professional demolition appears to account for the full range of facts associated with the
collapse of the three buildings."
If they knew to plant the explosives, then they knew a plane was coming.
Otherwise, what would their excuse be?

I am totally against torture in 99 percent of all cases.
Only in the "perfect storm" sense would I green light torture.
The argument I have is with the "never" folks, the folks who would
let 10M people die because "torture is always wrong."
In almost every case, "never" and "always" make a statement or position false.

Poll: USA is losing patience on Iraq
Nearly six in 10 Americans say Bush should withdraw some or all of its troops from his quagmire,
a new Gallup Poll finds, the most
downbeatrealistic view of the war since it began in 2003.
Patience for the war has dropped sharply as optimism has ebbed and violence against U.S. troops
hasn't abated. For the first time, a majority would be "upset" if President Pigheaded sent more troops.
A new low, 36%, say troop levels should be maintained or increased.
The souring of public opinion presents challenges for the president, who has vowed to stay the course
because he thinks changing one's mind shows weakness.
Subject: torture to save 10M people?
Torture is dirty business and wrong.
I'm not into that snuff porn crap.

Seriously. Your question itself is a load of nonsense.
It somehow asserts that such a fantastical scenario could actually take place.
Not in this world Jack! This is pure science fiction.
It's good to know Al Qaeda and 9-11 are fictional,
and that they could never get hold of a nuke.
No beheadings in Iraq lately?
What could explain this lack of barbarism?
Zarqawi had a change of heart and wants to play nice?
Not likely. These religio-crazies never come back from Handjob City.
Zarqawi has been unable to catch any more civilian contractors?
Not likely. There are what, 200,000 Westerners in Iraq, spread out over
100 cities and Zarqawi can't manage to grab a single one in all these months?
Zarqawi realized that beheadings were becoming common, and no longer
had the power to shock and strike terror into Western hearts?
Not likely. I got creeped out every time one occured, and I'm a big, strong man.
I'm so creeped out, I never clicked on the beheader-cam to see what happened..
Does it seem odd that Zarqawi never beheaded a soldier?
It seems damn odd to me that Zarqawi would want to murder people who were
there to provide phone service and build water plants, but not soldiers with guns.
It seems like Zarqawi got orders to stop the executions, isn't that rather obvious?
...but from whom?
I know, that sounds crazy on the surface, but all the major players in this drama
are CIA or ex-CIA and all the power and wealth in the world are at stake.
Would evil men climb into bed with the Devil for unlimited wealth and power?
Officers: Military can't end Iraq insurgency
The solution will have to come through the political process
BAGHDAD - A growing number of senior American military officers in Iraq have concluded
there is no long-term military solution to an insurgency that has killed thousands of Iraqis and
1,300 (Liars, the number is at least 1700) U.S. troops in the last two years.
Instead, officers say, the only way to end the guerrilla war is through Iraqi politics - an arena
that has been crippled by divisions between Shiite Muslims and Sunni Muslims, who are a
minority in Iraq and form the base of support for the insurgency.
"I think the more accurate way to approach this right now is to concede that... this insurgency
is not going to be settled through military options or military operations," Brig. Gen. Donald Alston,
the chief U.S. military spokesman in Iraq, said last week, echoing other senior officers.
"It's going to be settled in the political process."
But Bush the Murder Monkey doesn't know how to settle anything politically.
His foreign policy consists of "We'll go it alone" and"Kill, kill, kill."

Bart, you're right.
The correct choice is to torture someone when ten million lives are at stake.
A liberal would never admit that, and that's why liberals lose elections.
A progressive would see the tradeoff is a devil's tradeoff where there are
no right answers, but one answer is less wrong than the other.
You have the cojones to say the truth. Keep swinging.
ChicoMike, funny how this season of 24 echoed my "perfect storm" for allowing torture.
They knew their scumbag was 100% guilty.
They knew the nuke was due to go off before sunrise the next day
They knew it was aimed at some big city, turns out it was LA.

Michael Jackson runs the "Not Guilty" table
Conservative jury tells D.A Sneddon to eat it with a big-ass spoon
My good friend Jeffrey Toobin said if MJ could get past Count Two, he'd be home free.
Count Two was the "Goodbye, Michael" Count.
By finding him not guilty on all ten counts, the all-white jury seemed to be saying to extra-eager Sneddon,
"Why did you bother to bring charges against this man with no better evidence than this?"
I was shocked and surprised.
I would've bet they were going to hang him.
FOXwhore.com says that prosecutors were celebrating victory last weekend since the jury
was sequestered but I didn't mention it because we don't so the rumor thing here at bartcop.com
The benefits to all of us?

and better yet, we don't have to endure the "Michael Jackson's Murder" True Hollywood Story.
No way he was going to survive prison.

In posing a question that assumes "we win" to include some

It is your competitiveness that clouds your vision.
If I was more willing to lose, I'd win more often?
To rebut your premise the question becomes, "to whom?".
Lighten up and stand for what you stand for.
"We" don't have to "win" to succeed at what counts.

Michael Jackson looks to rebuild career
Now that Michael Jackson has been cleared of child molestation charges, the next
big question is whether he can rebuild a shattered career and work his way out of deep debt.
Experts in image management and the music industry say Jackson could make a modest
comeback singing the hits that made him famous, especially in Europe and Asia.
Whatever Jackson does next, he added, especially if it's soon, will "get enormous attention,"
Kragen said, adding, "The best thing for him to do would be something that's unexpected."
I have just the remedy for MJ, it was in a BCR radio show that's over a year old.
The answer? Pretend you can sing and hire a band and go into show business.
Michael should hire a 5-piece rock band, practice up on 20 songs and go on tour.
Don't play Prague, Antwerp, Quito, Minsk, Pyoungyang or Kongsvinger.
Play Albuquerque, OKC, Tulsa, Shreveport, Littls Rock - you know, normal places.

No Elephant Man bones,
no oxygen chambers,
no Diane Sawyer,

no 200-piece orchestra,
no lotteries for tickets,
First thing you gotta do, Michael, is undo the decades of horseshit you built for yourself.
Convince people you're from Planet Earth and trust me, you've taken a BIG first step.
Just get out there and act like a human being who wrote some good songs and f-ing sing them.

Congrats to Mesereau for doing a very good job of defending Jackson,
but with such a feeble prosecution, Bubbles the Chimp could've handled
Michael's defense and still gotten an acquital.
FOX's Wendy Murphy....minutes before the verdict is read, tells Shepherd Smith:
'Obviously, clearly we are looking at multiple guilty verdicts. They deliberated too long
for an acquittal and not long enough for a hung jury.' Judge Napolitano, normally a
much more conservative analyst, agrees, making the fatal mistake of going out on a limb
and guessing, and it comes back to hit them in the face badly. When Shepherd Smith (of Fox)
and Nancy Grace (of Hell) mention that courtroom observers have said that the jury is not
looking at Jackson, Wendy Murphy, Nancy Grace, Shep Smith and Judge Nap all agree
on their respective shows that it means a guilty verdict

Katie Holmes converting to Scientology
Also taking "bad acting" lessons to be closer to Tom
Katie Holmes, in London as Mrs. Batman, was asked if she was turning Scientologist,
a religion that's mocked by many but in reality is no crazier than most religions.
"Yes, I am, and I'm really excited about it," she gushed like a giddy schoolgirl.
Katie, get the wedding over with before you throw your God away for him.
God has a terrible temper, and there's no telling how vengeant he'll be.
Also, (and don't think I follow these things) I think I read that Katie boasted
about still being a virgin, which is always a stupid thing to declare because the
press will ask you each and every day, "Are you still a virgin?"
But won't Cruise's career die if he doesn't marry her and stay with her a decade?
Will his fans tolerate her deflowering and dumping by Mr. Mega-star?
Is the Cruise-Holmes relationship a hoax?
Was Katie Tom's second choice for a beard?
"The Garner plan began last summer, that's when Cruise met with Jennifer Garner,"
my source says, "just like he eventually had a meeting with Katie Holmes."
"When Jennifer moved into her new home, Tom starting sending her gifts,"
my source says. "That's when she called him and said, 'It has to stop.'
She told him she was with Ben. That's when the Katie plan took hold."
If he could act, he mighta gotten away with it
