A fascinating daily look at all the things
that could have happened, but never did.
"I appreciate the Senate for working to keep
the existing Patriot Act in law through next July,
despite boasts last week by the Democratic
leader that he had blocked the Act.."

When a President can't get his own party onboard, he must be Poison.
A Plan for
a Cease-Fire in Iraq
by former Democratic congressional staffer Brent Budowsky as seen on consortiumnews.com
Leading Democrats should propose and President
Bush should initiate a plan to win the war in Iraq beginning
with a comprehensive cease-fire, in return for
all-Iraqi participation in the new government, amnesty for insurgents
who lay down their arms to join the democratic process,
multilateral diplomatic and economic support for economic
opportunity in post-cease-fire Iraq, and an unconditional
military victory over foreign terrorists and jihadists led by
aggressive and politically savvy Special Forces and
U.S. Marine Corps and active-duty Army.
The path to victory in Iraq is for President Bush
and Democratic leaders to reflect on how President Kennedy
learned from the failure of the Bay of Pigs invasion,
took full personal responsibility, and applied the political and
military lessons to achieve a world-saving triumph
in the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Reasonable people can disagree about time lines
for withdrawal and force size for American presence,
but these are the wrong questions that inevitably
lead to the wrong answers.
"Bush and Gonzales wanted to play chicken --
and they lost."

Bush to Cut & Run next year
Der crazy Monkey has authorized new cuts in U.S.
combat troops in Iraq,
below the 138,000 level that prevailed for most
of this year, Rumsfeld said Friday.
Rumsfeld did not reveal the exact size of the troop
cut, but Pentagon officials
have said it could be as much as 7,000 combat
Two army brigades that had been scheduled for combat
tours will no longer deploy to Iraq.
That will reduce the number of combat brigades
in Iraq from 17 to 15.
Wait, when Murtha says it's time to start bringing troops home, it proves
he's a traitor.
When Rummy wants to reduce troops levels, it's proof that Bush's "Plan for
victory" is working?
Broader Than Bush Admitted
Once again, the NYWTimes helped them cover-up crimes
They reveal this on Christmas
Eve, to help Bush
The National Security Agency has conducted much
broader surveillance of e-mails and phone calls
- without court orders - than Bush has acknowledged,
The New York Whore Times reported.
Since the Times confessed their involvement last
week, Bush claimed that his orders to break the law
was limited to people with known links to
al-Qaida. But the Whore Times said that NSA technicians
have combed through phone and Internet traffic in search
of patterns that might lead to terrorists.
CNN reports Bush has been spying on environmental
groups like Greenpeace
and animal rights groups such as People for
the Ethical Treatment on Animals.
He can't do that!
He's much worse than Nixon - so
Bush has to go.

I remember when Bill ran. He was an unknown and
garnered a groundswell of support as the voters got to know him.
He was young, charming and articulate in a
way that made him easy to warm up to.
I saw him on Arsenio Hall and KNEW he was going
to be our next President.
I don't see Hillary that way. She strikes me
as a Democratic Margaret Thatcher (heresy!! you say).
I'm a New Yorker and think she has worked very hard
for me but I still feel used like we're a stepping stone.
Yes I voted for her. But that mercenary thing
she has just doesn't make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside about her.
And, FEELINGS are what get you elected. I didn't FEEL
very good about Kerry - ever. And I have that feeling about Hillary.
She's going to have to turn it on in a big way to
get me excited.
I think if we are going to elect a Democrat it will
have to be someone very much in the mold of Bill Clinton ala 1990-91.
I'm trolling for someone off the scope right
now. If I find someone who fits the bill (ha ha) I'll let you know.

Frank, I smell what you're cookin'.
It's hard to measure "electricity" or whatever, but if Hillary goes somewhere
to make a speech
they always have to turn away people because the venue is never big enough
to hold them all.
Remember those crowds that turned out for Kerry in the final days?
They're going to need a wider lens to shoot the Hillary crowds.

Hints at Wider Flaws
Election officials spooked by tampering in a test
last week of Diebold optical-scan voting machines
should be equally wary of optical-scan equipment
produced by other manufacturers, according to
a computer scientist who conducted the test.
Election officials in Florida's Leon County, where
the test occurred, promptly announced plans to
drop Diebold machines in favor of optical-scan
machines made by Election Systems & Software,
or ES&S. But Hugh Thompson, an adjunct computer
science professor at the Florida Institute of
Technology who helped devise last week's test, believes
other systems could also be vulnerable.
"Looking at these systems doesn't send off signals
that ... if we just get rid of Diebold and go to
another vendor we'll be safe," Thompson said. "We
know the Diebold machines are vulnerable.
As for ES&S, we don't know that they're bad but
we don't know that they're (good) either."
Too bad this country can't evolve electronically.
The Democrats are going to let them steal the fourth election

Jailed for Over a Year With No Lawyer
abuse in Bush's Amerikkka
A man was jailed for more than a year without ever
seeing a lawyer as he waited for a repeatedly
postponed court hearing, gaining release only
after a cellmate told an attorney about the case.
Walter Mann Sr., 69, was released Dec. 16 after
a year and three months ÷ more than twice the time
he would have served if he had been convicted
in his contempt-of-court case.
Mann's legal troubles began in 2002, when his 13-year-old
son assaulted him and was sent to a
juvenile detention center. Mann, who was unemployed
and on disability benefits, was ordered to
pay $50 a month for the boy's housing but never did,
according to court records.
Wait, the victim was ordered to pay for his attackers "housing
How is an unemployed man on disability supposed to come up with the money?
One of the things I really like about you and your
site is that you are constantly egging on the Democrats
to have balls and tell it like it is and fight,
and to stop thinking they need to sound civil or centrist.
You obviously like Hillary, and you have a lot of
faith in her. Hell, I like her too, and it would be stupid to knock
any Dem candidate that might beat these bastards. But
her strategy has a lot of Bob Shrum in it right now,
and if it was anyone else, I think you'd be calling
them a pink tutu. I think that's what gets people up in arms.
I seems that whatever Hillary does or says, you
give her a pass and you say that her strategy is sound,
and that at the right moment, she's going to
take out the Big Liberal Hammer. I do hope you're right.
When Kerry did the same thing, you (rightfully) ripped
him a new one. It seems inconsistent.
I've been reading your site for four years now,
and to me, two things come through:
1. You love and miss the Clintons, and 2. Wes
Clark is actually most closely aligned with your views and strategies.
Is #1 maybe blinding you a bit to #2? Just
Pete, great letter!
You nailed it when you said, "Hillary's
strategy has a lot of Bob Shrum in it right now."
Timing is everything, and if Hillary makes
her move now, the media will jump on her 24/7
and everyone will be sick of wall-to-wall Hillary a
year before the convention even begins.
After Clinton got caught, they asked him how he
kept his marriage together. He said, (my words)
much as she hated me for that, she hated those fascist bastards MORE."
Remember what Shakespeare said: "Hell
hath no fury like Hillary seeking revenge."
Kerry said, "What
the hell, my bitch own ketchup, I'm
a billionaire - why should I fight?"
If Hillary ever feels like that, she's going to
remember those bastards going thru her underwear drawer,
sniffing her panties and she'll rev up like Popeye
on f-ing Spinich and she's going to kick fascist dog ass.
She's not on the Armed Services Committee by accident.
Her best move would be Clark for VP.
I'll get behind a kick-ass team like that.
I think America will, too.
I think Hillary is playing her strategy in an excellent
A Clinton family rule is don't think beyond the
next election because you may not get past the next election.
For now Hillary is focused on the 2006 congressional
I am hoping for a Democratic sweep of both houses.
Then impeachment proceedings can begin.
A bizarre but slightly unlikely scenario is the
Democrats win the Senate, Hillary is voted Senate Leader,
and Bush and Cheney are both impeached, which
would move Hillary into the Oval Office.
*Sigh* what a sweet fantasy. Ahem, back to reality.
I would rather she win through an election.
Simon, I like that so much, let's hear it again.
The Democrats win the Senate, Hillary is voted
and Bush and Cheney are both impeached,
which would move Hillary into the Oval Office.
Not sure, but I think I started to get some wood.

It seems like every day on your site, I read more
and more letters excoriating you
for your support of Hillary in '08. I'm curious
as to whether you're getting many letters
agreeing with your stance. If so, you should publish
some of them, as I'd like to know
what Hillary supporters see in her (besides the fact
that she's NOT Bush).
I get very, very few "I
like Hillary" e-mails.
But then, I got very few "Tillman
was a hero" e-mails.
I got very few "I don't
like piss art, either" e-mails.
I got hardly any "I'd
save New York from the H-bomb" e-mails.
I got very few "I'd
use a gun to save my family" e-mails.

I don't have anything against Hillary personally,
but I frankly don't believe that
the America we're living in today has the will
to elect a woman to the presidency.
Carmody, I think George Bush is going to have one bright gold star behind
after we impeach his crooked, lying, incompetent war-mongering ass, and that
star will say,
"Because of GWB, America voted overwhelmingly for a female president."

Dear St. Bartholomew,
I am a member who has never listened to the radio
program. That is for a number of reasons:
I don't have the block of time I'd need to give
it a good listening-to; I'm not very computer savvy
and probably would blow up my Dell if I tried to listen
to it. I "signed up" to support you and the page.
Dude, next time you feel like a road trip, take some BCR CDs with you.
Eight CDs will take you from Minneapolis to Tulsa.
They you could buy me a shot of Chinaco.
Your page has made me a number of close friends,
nation-wide, when you published some of my stuff.
Some of these friendships are going on four or
five years! I've met some great people via the page,
and forward much great stuff from your page to my "Fellow
Travelers" on my "news list."
I believe you reach more people with the page than
with the radio show, and if one takes precedent,
I hope it is the page. Bigger, better, more writers
contributing, more cartoons, more links.
How about a "Sunday Night Show," or even Sunday
mornings--one or two hours every week,
same Bart-time, same Bart-channel? You could
then devote more time to the written page.
And count me in as a contributing writer! I'd be glad
to pen an occasional ranting-bitch
(or bitching-rant) for you, as I'm sure would other
writers out there.
Maybe someday I'll be good enough to do a live "show without a net."
Just my humble opinion. Merry Koreshmas to you and
Mrs. Bart, my friend.
You can celebrate the "holiday" secularly (Christmas
started out as a combination
of pagan holidays, ranging from Saturnalia to winter
solstice. Like our cats, it's a "mixture."

watch some football or hockey or basketball,
enjoy a huge feast, sip some tequilla, and thank

I wish you peace,

think the last one was the best)

Bush Wiretap Crimes
Supreme Court nominee and Bush stooge Samuel Alito
defended the right of BIG government to
spy on Americans for "national security reasons" when
he worked at the Reagan Justice Department.
Then an assistant to the solicitor general, Alito
wrote a 1984 memo that provided insights on his views
of government powers and legal recourse - seen
now through the prism of Bush's crimes - as well as clues
to the judge's understanding of how the Supreme Court
The National Archives released the memo and scores
of other documents related to Alito on Friday;
the Associated Whore Press had requested the
material under the Freedom of Information Act.
The memo comes as Bush is under fire for secretly torching
the Fourth Amendment when ordering
domestic spying Americans that Bush claimes might have
a terrorist connection. Such a broad and
undefined net would surely include peace groups and
Democrats such as Hillary and Wesley Clark.

Spy Judges: "Monkey,
When did Bush become above the law?
Several members of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance
Court said in interviews that they want to know
why Bush believed no-warrant domestic spying
was legal. They are concerned that information gleaned from
Bush's crimes may have been improperly used to gain
authorized wiretaps from their court. Tainted warrants
could be thrown into question. One judge, speaking
on the condition of anonymity, also said members could
suggest disbanding the court in light of the president's
suggestion that he has the power to bypass the court."

What's with all these people pretending they don't

Look at her record before she became a senator,
and you'll see one of the true compassionate progressives.
On the other hand, if she were to try to take

of her political survival -- and she is a
political survivor, she proved that many times as First Lady.
I agree that she's biding her time, that she
is picking her fights -- but I also think she believes in
