Legacy: A Partisan Court
As the late U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice William
Rehnquist is warmly remembered for his
conservatism and his defense of judicial prerogatives,
a troubling part of his legacy is being ignored
- his unprecedented politicization of the American
courts, at times making them little more than
an enforcement arm for the Republican Party.
When the chips were down for Republican leaders
- from George H.W. Bush on the Iran-Contra
scandal to George W. Bush in Election 2000 -
Rehnquist worked behind the scenes with other
right-wing judges to make the federal courts
the GOP's last line of defense. In doing so, these jurists
made a mockery of their sworn duty to enforce
the law impartially and to protect the Constitution.
Much of this history of Rehnquist's partisanship
is being forgotten amid this week's eulogies about
a respected Washington figure who supposedly
mellowed in his later years. But the reality is that
Rehnquist always remained the Republican partisan
that he was in his early days in Arizona politics.
"And consider Bay High School in Bay St. Louis,
Miss. It was an unofficial shelter
turned cesspool, the sight of which Gary Turner,
Trudy Roberts and Felix Ruiz said
should be considered a crime. The three strangers
became a rescue team of sorts
when they fled to the high school themselves
and found people in their 70s, 80s
and 90s wallowing in their own waste on the
auditorium floors. They had been
brought to the school and abandoned, most
unable to move without help.
Rats wouldn't even go in there."

Bush is offering dispossessed Katrina families

Bush is "oblivious, ...in denial, ...dangerous,"
when it comes to the plight of the storm's victims,
says Nancy Pelosi. Harry Reid asked
pointedly whether Monk impeded relief efforts by
playing golf and jerking with country music stars
while the storm murdered black people.
This story hides the truth - when Pelosi said, "Things
went wrong," Monk looked at her and said,
"What things went wrong?"
That's why she called him "oblivious, in denial
Second, isn't $2000 too much for those darkie families?
After all, the senior Bush bitch said, "So
many of these people were underprivileged anyway
so this (she chuckled) - this is working very
well for them."
If the BFEE were honest (should I finish this sentence?) they'd just
take out an ad that says,
"We hate black people - we don't care because
they don't vote Republican."
Watching the horror that is New Orleans unfold
has left me even more depressed and saddened
about my country. Even more depressing than the
wholesale rape and looting of my country by the
powers-that-be are the Americans who have enabled
this train wreck on two legs to unleash yet
another four years of death and destruction on
the world - even after they'd witnessed the first four.
They don't just enable, they excuse and try to
deflect any and all criticism of their Dear Leader.
To those people who have supported Bush and his policies,
especially the so-called "Pro-Life Christians"
who support a "Culture of Life" I'd like to ask Dr. Phil style, "How's
that working out for you?"
You fucking shameless, self-righteous, heartless
bastards. You have every bit as much blood
on your hands as the disaster team that you elected.
Fuck you and fuck your merciful, all-powerful,
all-loving God. If this past five years hasn't proved to you that "He"
doesn't exist then what
the fuck will it take?

Subject: The Life of the Chief
When a person passes we reflect upon the life
of that person and how he changed society.
I think that most people would agree that Justice
Rehnquist's most enduring legacy will be
the 5th vote that appointed Bush president, substituting
his judgment for the will of the
American electorate. Had he not joined in appointing
Bush we would not be at war in Iraq.
We would not have gone from the most prosperous
nation on the planet to the biggest
debtor nation on the planet. And - it would have
cost less than half to fill our gas tank
than it does today.
When a person passes they leave a legacy behind.
What a person does in life often affects
generations to come. It's just too bad Justice
Rehnquist couldn't have taken his legacy with him
because life in this world is far worse today
because of his bad choices. His passing reminds us
that when we face the judgment of history, if
we want to be remembered well, we have to
accomplish good things in our lives.
San Francisco, CA.
In a recent radio show, I mentioned the outright
lies that people tell when someone dies.
CNN (who scored a lot of points with me during
Katrina) keeps talking about "the love"
the American people had for Rehnquist that has
come gushing forth.
That's pure bullshit.
How could anyone love Rehnquist? Nobody
The only times I ever saw him move or speak was
swearing in the president and
presiding over that horseshit, kangaroo impeachment
farce in 1998 - so what's to love?
Nobody loved Rehnquist except some people who knew him personally, so
do us all a favor and stop lying.

The CMT and CRT is just shorthand for which distillary it came from,

After watching wife be swept away,
The day after Katrina wiped out Biloxi, viewers
across the country were moved
by the story of Hardy Jackson.
A Pensacola TV crew happened across Hardy not
long after Hurricane Katrina's
storm surge swept away his house, then his wife.
"I held her hand as tight as I could, but she
told me, 'You can't hold me,' " he sobbed
as he wandered the street with his grandchildren.
"We ain't got no where to go.
I'm lost. That's all I had."
Days later, Hardy's T-shirt was still in the tree
he grabbed onto in the middle of the storm.
He pointed to it as he recalled his struggle.
"A wave came up, she came up and I slid -- Lord
you know it's true -- and I slid
right on down there," he explained.
A massive wall of water, more than 20 feet high,
crushed his neighborhood and
swept his wife Tawnee away. Hardy said it was
actually two waves from different
directions that was finally too much.
"I saw that big monster wave coming this way,
that big son of a gun coming this way,
it hit that house there and -- wham," he recalled.
"She said, 'Take care of the kids and the grandkids,'
" then she let go.
You know what's really sad?

Norm, in my opinion, and maybe Hillary's too,
her job is to avoid
making headlines until she starts her official
run for the White House.
Sher's got to keep her powder dry until she's
ready to attack.
A year ago, Howard Dean looked like the sure nominee,
but he peaked
too soon and he most people considered him a

The stakes couldn't be higher. Hillary probably
can't run for president twice.
And if the BFEE retains control of everything,
we'll lose what's left of our country.
Don't forget - she's married to the smartest politician in our party.
I hope the Hillary haters don't give the BFEE another four years.
Subject: Please, Bart; just explain
it to me. Please!
The other day during that absurd press conference
in Houston, with the Bushies and
the Clintons, again, side by side, a rather rude
question was thrown at Poppy as he was
walking away from the podium, and I heard Bill
say to him, " I got your back."
Why should Bill Clinton give a flying rats ass
about these people?
I don't blame Bill and Hill for hating the MSM
for what they did to them, but g--damn
do they have to help try to bail Junior's butt
out, every time he has one of his ADHD
spells when he should be running the country?
Could Bill Clinton, just once, start out
on his own, before a call from the BFEE, summoning
him to the Court of fools?.
Bart, it is not helping the country or Hill's
to be so tight with America's biggest crime family.
I disagree, but go om.
Please, Bart, just explain why the Clintons keep
buddying up with the BFEE?
It isn't good for the country. It does not bring
about unity (and I hope to Koresh
it doesn't, as long as the BFEE is in power).
It makes me doubt the Clintons big time,
and it is having the same effect on many others.
Please, just give me an explanation, if you know
I think I have the answer - but you've asked a lot of questions :)
First, the thing that makes you mad probably makes the country happy.
When the tsunami hit, there was hundreds of thousands of dead and Clinton
accepted a request to help - not a bad thing for him to have done,
I would rather see Clinton fighting for our side - but look how reasonable
both Bill and Hillary are looking these days.
Viewers see Bill working with Bush the Smarter and Hillary traveling
and they want more of that. Plus, the comparison makes Bill look great,
don't you think?
The whole country is seeing an inept, arrogant, phoney, partisan liar self-destruct
and they see the wise, elder statesman Bill who led us to the best
peace and prosperity ever.
I think it's a brilliant strategy.
I wonder how many subscribers this next paragraphs
will cost me?
If Hillary had gone to visit Cindy Sheehan - think what they would've
done to her.
"There was Hillary, attacking our soldiers
with Code Pink and moveon.org
and Joan Baez and the kooks and even Jane
Baghdad Fonda was there!"
Hell, if bartcop.com was bigger, they'd say, "Hillary
was photographed holding a sticker
for BartCop, the web guy who calls
our dear president 'Der Monkey'
Is that what we want in the White House?"
Bottom line: We have three choices.
Accept that the BFEE will run
Amerikkka from now on.
Get behind the Clinton/Clark
juggernaut - and keep nutjobs like Nader out of the race.

Kerry, Edwards, etc. will catch fire.

search for Snowball
Among the thousands of crushing moments from

to many: a tearful little boy torn from his dog
while being shuttled to safety.
It tugged at the heartstrings, prompting an outpouring

hopes of a reunion.
"Everyone wants to know about Snowball," said
Laura Maloney, executive director of the

But when he went to board a bus to Houston,

the barge striking the levee also want

One of the lies the mainstream media told repeatedly

This was greatly helped by Dowd who wrote a column
ridiculing Gore for saying that he and
Tipper were role models for Erich Segal's "Love

but later on it was learned that both Gore and
Tommy Lee Jones were both role models for t
he character of Oliver.
In addition, a few years before, Dowd had herself
written a column recounting the entire
Segal story in writing the book in which *she*
reported Segal saying that Gore was one
of his role models..
When she wrote her first Bash Bush column, I sent
her an e-mail saying she had noone
