Bush & the Limits of Debate
  by Robert Parry  as seen on consortiumnews.com


George W. Bush, who sees himself as America's all-powerful "unitary executive," has begun 
pronouncing limits on "responsible" debate about his Iraq War policies, putting outside the bounds 
questions on his ulterior motives and false pre-war claims. But it looks like Rep. John Murtha, 
who advocates a prompt withdrawal from Iraq, can expect some harsh treatment, too, 
as conservatives dredge up allegations that he exaggerated his war wounds in Vietnam.

Have you noticed how few (if any) Democrats are standing by as Murtha gets Swift-Boated?
Democrats - you can always count on them to cave in a fight.

Note: consortiumnews.com  is the most important site on the Internet.


Swiftboaters are 'Gangs' in a Moral America

 Link  (Scroll to January 17)

"What a ridiculous situation!  And yet, as I discussed yesterday, this is exactly what happens to 
Democrats when they are 'swiftboated' by Republicans.  To stop 'swiftboaters' from destroying 
the candidacies of more and more top notch Americans running for office, Democrats must take 
the initiative now to make sure that these candidates can set and stay on their own stage--in their 
own frame. The key to cracking down on the swiftboaters is to reframe the entire political system 
in moral terms.  They key is to start describing the swiftboaters as 'gangs.'...Those of us who pay 
the price--who fought when our nation called us to fight, who watched our friends die on the battlefield, 
and who came back home still believing in America--we deserve to be protected from these gangs."

A little urging, and I'm sure the Democrats will become bold and take action!


Iraqi Captors Threaten Life of Reporter


Al-Jazeera aired a silent videotape of hostage American reporter Jill Carroll in which
they gave Bush 72 hours to free female prisoners in Iraq or the journalist would be killed.

Carroll, a freelance reporter for The Christian Science Monitor, has not been heard from
since she was grabbed Jan. 7 in one of Baghdad's most dangerous neighborhoods.
Gunmen ambushed her car shortly after she left the offices of a Sunni Arab politician.

Bart's Law #3

Do not lay down in front of a bulldozer or a train or become a human shield.

That includes traveling to war zones, too.
I hope she makes it back, but she almost begged to be kidnapped.

from Shirley Manson of Garbage
To whom ever it may concern:
I hereby solemnly swear, with my hand upon my very own small but trusted heart, 
that our little bug is our little bug. I have held his little hand in mine, looked him 
in the eye and recognised him as a good person, both honest and true.

We can't be sure Shirley wrote that, and it's not dated, but when you swear on your 
trusted heart that you've looked a person in the eye, how do you follow that with... 

Subject: from Shirley's diary

"I suppose you will have read all the controversy about JT in the press. 
Suffice to say that the books remain a marvel and whoever wrote them 
is still a genius whether they are a man, woman or wilderbeast.

It's perfectly fair that people are confused and up in arms about it but if you 
have read the books and understand them, why on earth would you ever assume 
that the person who wrote them was your regular, 9-5, cookie-cutter joe?"

Taken with the other comments about having been with JT.
I have to assume that the JT person who she met was clearly the front for this fraud.

But anyhow, since you'll let Hilary get away with Mena Airport, killing Vince Foster, 
and knowing Bush was lying into this war but voting for it anyhow (Kidding! Kidding!) 
I'd hope you forgive Shirley for this whole ordeal.

Mike S 

"Suffice to say...?"

Nobody likes to be lied to.
I don't think "Suffice to say..." is the same as being honest.

Is Shirley saying she was duped?
If so, why's she sticking with the duper, like Oprah did to the guy below.

...but thanks for sending that. Mike.


Truth or fiction? It makes a big difference
 by Gene Lyons


According to smokinggun.com, "documents and interviews show Frey wholly fabricated or wildly 
embellished details of his purported criminal career, jail terms and status as an outlaw 'wanted in three states.'"

There's no evidence Frey was ever wanted anywhere..
Like another dry-drunk ex-frat boy I could name if I were in a partisan mood 
who swaggers around telling tall tales to gullible audiences, Frey's a big faker.. 



Subject: Democrats


Love your site!

Yeah...I just wanted you to know that my spouse and I Unsubscribed from every Democratic 
organization that have been flooding us with solicitations for donations. Especially the f**king DNC. 
In addition, we sent each of them a detailed letter explaining exactly WHY we no longer support them.

Plenty of reasons....ranging from Kerry's rollover in the 2004 elections, to the Democrats continuing
spinelessness on challenging the Alito nomination.  Its just absolutely sickening and you know...
your suggestion of withholding support to these hypocrites just might hit em where it hurts.

I have to say tho'...Im just not seeing WHEN, if ever, these DINO's are ever going to wake up 
and once again become a real opposition party. Thank god for folks like you, Bart, who at least 
give us some hope.

Give em hell.

KB, the crazy part is they refuse to save themselves.
How did they lose their instinct for self-preservation?

To this day, have you heard an elected Democrat speak out on the Diebold problem? 
People tell me, "Bart, Dems are just like the Rethugs,"  ...but that's not true.

Rethugs fight for what they want - our side refuses to fight.

Subject: in defense of shirley

Bart, you wrote:

> I think Shirley owes her fans an explanation.

Does that mean Robert Plant really met "a girl so fair" in the darkest depths of Mordor? 
Please give Ms. Manson a break for writing a song about a book - it's fair poetic license to do so. 

If Plant wrote, "I swear on my trusted heart that I looked my Mordor girl in the eye
and I've held her hand in mine," we'd know he was crazy. 



First, do More Harm
  by Paul Krugman


It's widely expected that Bush will talk a lot about health care in his State of the Union address. 
He probably won't boast about his prescription drug plan, whose debut has been a Katrina-like saga 
of confusion and incompetence. But he probably will tout proposals for so-called "consumer driven" 
health care. So it's important to realize that the administration's idea of health care reform is to take 
what's wrong with our system and make it worse."

If the Democrats has any stones, (Should I bother to finish this sentence?) 
they would walk out on Bush when he starts in with his pack of bloody lies.

But no, they'll applause and show respect because they're all about being polite.
Then after the speech, Bush will tongue kiss LIE-berman again and I'll puke.



Subject: enough of this bullshit

You aren't man enough to stomach what Parry says about the Clintons.
You have your 2008 hopes pinned on a figment of your imagination.

I know you are ill, and I sincerely wonder if that limits your perspective,
because you want so badly for the Bush regime to be gone...
you are compromising yourself in the name of winning, and that's a Bush trait.


No, what's sad is what's going to happen to the next handjob 
who thinks it's cute to drag my health into a political discussion. 

I don't like your manners.
Be a stranger, please.

Yesterday I sent this to Nancy Pelosi:

Dear Rep. Pelosi,
You're the leader of my party in the House.  I've been thinking about
Bush's rush to war in Iraq, and now Iran.  All the signs are there to see.

Why don't you guys get together and go on strike to protest Pres. Bush's
dictatorial use of secret surveillance, imprisoning without trial, establishment
of secret prisons, use of torture at will, and disregard for privacy rights and
other freedoms of Americans?

Pure and simple.  Just get up, and make a speech on the steps of the Capitol,
and set up shop elsewhere.  Bring the rotten corrupt Republican Party into the spotlight.
Name them by name, and quit cooperating with the greed and the evil they are doing.

What have you got to lose?  They're not going to stop until you do something.
So do something.  That's why you're the Leader.

Don the Day Trader

Don, excellent letter and a great idea, but let's go one step further.
The first time Bush tells a lie in the State of the Union speech,
they should stand up and walk out on his warmongering, lying ass.

The news whores would eat that with a Texas-sized spoon and
Der Monkey would be embarrassed all over the world on live TV.
It's free, it's effective and guaranteed to work.

But...it's not being polite so, of course, they'd never do it.

Have you made your TV signs yet for Bush's State of the Union speech?




"We're watching Al Gore unplugged. Find out why he says President Bush has

"Head-On" is now listed with iTunes and is
rebroadcast Tues-Fri at radiopower.org from 3-6 pm. ET.


Hillary sparked a political firestorm Monday by describing the GOP-controlled Congress
as a "plantation" during a speech before an African-American congregation in Harlem.

"When you look at the way the House of Representatives has been run, it has been run like a plantation,
and you know what I'm talking about," Clinton said during an event sponsored by Al Sharpton.

This isn't the first time the former first lady's utterances have provoked an uproar.
In 1992...

ha ha

The Hillary haters at Newswhore had to go back 16 years to find another "firestorm?"
Der Monkey can't complete a sentence unless he's reading someone else's words.

But wait - does this "firestorm" word sound familiar?

Gingrich once compiled a "required reading list" for fellow members of Congress;
and on the eve of his great electoral victory (in 1994), the speaker-to-be told a reporter
he was leading a "slave rebellion" against the Democrats who "run the plantation." Link

But it's only a "firestorm" when a Democrat uses it, right mainstream media whores?


Subject: no WMDs

Bart, you wrote:

> Unless you can show me a pre-war guarantee that Saddam had no WMDs,

how about scott ritter
how about hans blix
how about the IAEA
how about david kay
how about the downing street memo

The opinions of Ritter, Blix, IAEA and Kay certainly count, but that not proof.
How do you justify gambling with the lives of everyone on the East Coast?

you are really starting to sound like bush & co.
so you got your war, there wasn't any wmd's, and you were wrong.

I got my war?

*I* started the rumor that Saddam had WMDS and could hit the East Coast?
*I* lied about the intelligence?
Are you one of those people who's so far to the left that I look like Bush?

do you remember the gulf of tolkin?

I remember the Gulf of Tonkin incident, but like with Saddam's WMDs,
we didn't learn until later that we were lied into that war.

Do you get your news from a WABAC machine?

the only guarantee about war, is the only people who won't die
are the people who started it.  including your good buddy hillary.

billy the gambler

I got lots and lots and lots of mail about this.
Of course, nobody sent the proof I was asking for.
Just a whole shitload of
"How can you be so blind?"
"How can you be so stupid?"
"How can you be so naive?"
"How can you be so much like Bush?"
"How can you be so warlike?"

Lots of that, lots of name-calling, but nothing even close to proof.


Time to go Long
  by Molly Ivins


I think we can rely upon the Democrats to seize the moment and punt.  Their best play, of course, is to take 
the reform issue and own it, to go long, for the whole reform package every goo-goo group in America 
has been agitating for years -- starting with public campaign financing for Congress. 

What matters here is not what the Republicans or the Democrats do -- it's what you do before November. 
Sit up, join up, stir it up, get online, get in touch, find out who's raising hell and join them. 
No use waiting on a bunch of wussy politicians."

I've received a fundraising letter from the DCC which I wrote back:

"It doesn't cost  $$ to speak out against this corrupt administration.
  Get a message

Rose, good for you.
If a million Democrats did that it might get their attention.


Subject: your quest for a Saddam WMD guarantee

I think that you should give a whole lot of thought about the nonsense of 
100 million Americans at risk if  he did have WMDs.

Even if he did have some half-assed biological weapons which countless inspections did not 
turn up the only people at risk would have to be in neighboring countries ,and as far as nuclear,
do you REALLY think they had a way to deliver them unless Russia loaned them some ICBMs.

Anyone with even a shred of intelligence(mind) would have to know after we bombed them back
to the middle-ages in the early 90's, and had a world embargo since then, not to mention military
over flights and satellite recon 24/7  that the proof you want is absolutely not be needed.

That is, unless you buy into the whole line of nonsense the American people have bought 
and are hopefully, rethinking.


You're that certain?
You'd bet the lives of your family on that certainty?

You and I gamble differently.

Subject: Hillary again

Neil in Vermont wrote: 

> "You are rapidly losing credibility with your readers, and coming off as a whore,

I have to agree with Neil, Bart.  I get fed up with reading about your love for Hillary. 
It's your site.  I respect that. 
I just don't come here as often because of your constant push for this woman. 
She should be wearing one of those little pink tutu's with the others in that photo of yours - IMHO anyway.

Linda, do I really have to explain it again?

At this point in time, 
my experience tells me 
that Hillary has the best chance to win.

YOU are the one who changed that to "your love for Hillary."
The "constant push" was another inaccuracy.

I wonder why you didn't tell me who your candidate is?


Vatican gives a nod to evolution 
  "Intelligent Design is not science"


Although not presented as an official church position, the Vatican newspaper published an article 
this week labeling as "correct" the decision by a judge in Pennsylvania last month that the concept 
of intelligent design could not be taught as a scientific alternative to evolution.

Fiorenzo Facchini, a professor of evolutionary biology at the University of Bologna, wrote in the 
Jan. 16-17 edition of the paper, L'Osservatore Romano:  "...it is not correct from a methodological
point of view to stray from the field of science while pretending to do science," he wrote. 
"It only creates confusion between the scientific plane and those that are philosophical or religious."

Uh-Oh, the Catholics are starting to make sense.
That's one of the Seven Signs, right?

I later realized what separates BartCop from the majority of leftist sites: somehow, and I am not
exactly sure how, but he gives at least a damn good impression that he is fighting for guys like me.
Unlike many other leftist sites which see most decent people as little more than a wallet whose
contents are used to finance the coming utopia, when I read BartCop I get the impression that
I am among friends. It's absolutely amazing how much is forgiven once that one little requirement
is fulfilled. I bet there is something useful that I could learn from this.


Give me Liberty or Let me Think About It
  by Michael Kinsley


Here, once again, the Bush administration helps to make the softies' case.  They could have jumped 
through the required hoops and be wiretapping away about five minutes later.  Or if they didn't like 
the way some court was interpreting the law, they could have gotten a law tailor-made from Congress 
just the way they liked.  ("I'll take it medium rare, with cuffs but no pleats, and hold the right to a jury trial.") 
But that was too much trouble."


Subject: Barrett Report


I found a story today on Rawstory that talks about a special prosecutor named Barrett 
who is coming out with a report tomorrow that claims there was some kind of Clinton 
White House coverup of squashing an IRS investigation of an appointee named Cisneros. 

Is this thing true or is this a Swift Boat deal? 
Judy N

Judy, swear to Koresh, that investigation is still going on.
It's been twelve years, I think, and they've spent $22 million chasing Cisneros.

We couldn't afford another $6M to track Osama, but we're $22M into Cisneros's zipper.
These Republicans are sick bastards.

Wait - I found it at a comedy site called Worldnetdaily.com.

Clinton killed case against Cisneros


 ...which is a nutty headline because they say Cisneros pleaded guilty 
to a misdemeanor charge of lying to the FBI. He paid a $10,000 fine. 

Sounds like Bill killed a settled case.

Jimmy Page voted top guitar soloist
  as seen in the Hindu Times   ha ha


 The top 10 guitar solos are:

1. Stairway to Heaven - Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin)
2. Eruption - Eddie Van Halen (Van Halen)
3. Freebird - Allen Collins and Gary Rossington (Lynyrd Skynyrd)
4. Comfortably Numb - David Gilmour (Pink Floyd)
5. All along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix
6. November Rain - Slash (Guns N' Roses)
7. One - Kirk Hammett (Metallica)
8. Hotel California - Don Felder and Joe Walsh (The Eagles)
9. Crazy Train - Randy Rhoads (Ozzy Osbourne)
10. Crossroads - Eric Clapton (Cream)

I can't argue with that, but many of the live solos were much better than the one on the record.
Anybody have the LA shows from 1977?    Those were the best Stairways ever.
