"The only people who want us in Iraq is Iran
and al-Qaeda. I talked to a top-level commander
and he said China wants us there also.
Why? Because we're depleting our resources - our troop
resources and our fiscal resources...The
war on terrorism is worldwide. In Iraq, it's a civil war.
We have diverted ourselves away from
that war on terrorism."
-- Rep. John Murtha (D-PA), on Face the Whore with Bob Schieffer,
John, if you read bartcop.com you would've
known years ago that Bush started this war
so he could rob Iraq of their oil. It was never about terror,
it was always about stealing the oil.
by Alex Sabbeth as seen on Consortiumnews.com
The new Zogby poll has drawn attention mostly
because it finds that 72 percent believe Bush
should withdraw from Iraq in a year or less and
only 23 percent favor Bush's plan to "stay the course."
But the poll also illustrates the power of propaganda.
Shockingly, 85 percent of the troops questioned
believe they are fighting in Iraq "to retaliate for 9-11"
- one of the key Iraq War myths built by Bush's
frequent juxtaposition of references to Osama and Saddam.
This subliminal message has stuck with the vast
majority of U.S. troops even though Bush eventually
acknowledged publicly that there is no evidence
linking Saddam to the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.
In other words, more than eight in 10 of the U.S.
soldiers in Iraq think they are there avenging Sept. 11,
even though the U.S. government lacks evidence
of the connection.
Only if you buy into the notion that voters are smart.
Truth is, voters are incredibly stupid and naive, that's why Bart's
Law #1 is
"Never tell the truth in a political campaign."
Detainees in Iraq are still being tortured, receiving
electric shocks and beatings with plastic cables,
says Amnesty International. The US military maintained
the lie that all detainees were being treated
according to international conventions and Iraqi
law. They said prisoner mistreatment had not ceased
since the revelations in 2004 of abuse by U.S.
troops at Abu Ghraib prison outside Baghdad.
In the new allegations, former detainees asserted
that they were beaten with plastic cables, given electric
shocks and made to stand in a flooded room as
an electrical current was passed through the water.
Bush is endangering the lives of every American
who ventures overseas.
He is clearly drunk with power and insane
and he must be stopped.
Let's pray the GOP takes action before it's too
"I would say they're going very, very well
from everything you look at. No matter where you look
- at their military, their police,
their society - things are much better this year than they were last."
-- Gen. Peter "Rose Glasses" Pace, on "Meet the Whore" with Russert on

if you don't know, fly-over country WILL rule,
deal with it!
Tom, I'm in Oklahoma.
Fly-over people are toothless, inbred, ignorant, backwards and insane.

Bush destroys/ignores U.S. Constitution
Despite the Sixth Amendment's guarantee of public
trials, nearly all records are being kept secret
for more than 5,000 defendants who completed
their journey through the federal courts over the
last three years. Instances of such secrecy more
than doubled from 2003 to 2005.
"The press had better hope we win this war,
if we don't, a lot of people will blame
-- Glenn Reynolds, Link
America's whore press wanted this war more than
they wanted their children and parents to continue breathing.
All those "Hooray, we're going to war"
rallies seem pointless now.
I agree with the Governor of South Dakota when
"The true test of a civilization
is how well people treat
the most vulnerable
and most helpless in their society."
What I don't agree with is that a fetus is a member
The legislature of South Dakota is insincere
and is acting out a fetus fetish to make themselves
feel morally superior rather than focusing their
scarce resources on child care for working mothers,
education, and medical care for children.
The worst kind of morality is faked morality and
I am wholly unimpressed. Religious people who
merely pose as moral to make themselves feel
self-important is what drives people away from religion.

It's time to remove him
by Garrison Keillor
These are troubling times for all of us who love
this country, as surely we all do, even the satirists.
You may poke fun at your mother, but if she is
belittled by others it burns your bacon. A blowhard
French journalist writes a book about America
that is full of arrogant stupidity, and you want to let the
air out of him and mail him home flat.
You hear young people talk about America as if it's all over,
and you trust that this is only them talking
tough. And then you read the paper and realize the country
is led by a man who isn't paying attention, and
you hope that somebody will poke him. Or put a sign
on his desk that says, "Try Much Harder."
Do we need to impeach him to bring some focus
to this man's life?
The man was lost and then he was found and now
he's more lost than ever, plus blind.

Bart, I was looking on craigslist for a cedar
chest then I remembered that you
had an ad running for a long time for some great
looking chests and other pieces
but that was a long time ago and there's nothing

remember the maker's name now.

"This is the first administration that I can
remember, including Nixon's, that said
-- and Porter Goss said this to Congress
-- that we need to think about a law that would
put journalists who print national
security things to...bring them up in front of grand juries
and put them in jail if they don't
-- in effect, if they don't reveal their sources."
-- David Gergen, Link
David, you had no probelm with impeacxhing Clinton for a girlfriend.
Why not call for impeachment for lies that killed 2300 soldiers?
Could it be that you're a partisan whore who cares more about
his political party than the lives of another 2300 dead
In Nixon's time, the GOP had enough pride and self-respect to
tell the bastard to stand down.
What happened to your party's pride and self-respect, David?
Subject: "An Arab who acts like
Speaking as a naturalized citizen of Indian descent
and as a liberal I have to say that its a difficult situation.
I would say in day to day affairs that it is
reasonable to assume that most "brown" people are not terrorists.
But in terms of fighting terrorists, I think
its insane not to admit that our enemies are radical muslims and
that we should be directing our efforts towards
those types of people.
Thanks to Bush this is nearly impossible.
In late 2001 we knew who the terrorists were
(because we recruited them to fight the Soviets) and we
had them cornered. But then we just stopped!!!
Now we are facing a worldwide movement, and not just "Arabs".
Now our enemies can be arab, south asian, indonesian,
african, white (bosnia), or european.

Subject: Obstacles 2008
I want a strong Democrat in the White House, not
the BFEE but that person has to be respected and capable.
Maybe we can all get behind Hillary soon but
you know she has baggage too. Liberal voters can't be sheep.
How do we get a message to the DNC besides witholding
Keep up the good work.
The DNC? I don't know of any other way to get their attention
if not financially.
They may get tired of hearing, "Not another
dime until you lazy bastards start fighting back"
As far as Hillary's "baggage," I don't buy it.
Kerry was baggage free and look what they did to him.
Why run Snow White if they're just going to turn her into Typhoid Mary?
I suggest we run someone who won't say,
"I want it, but I don't want it bad enough
to fight for it."
That's what we got from Kerry, Gore, Daschle, Cleland etc.
Subject: Scared Democrats
It's probably up to conservative Republicans to
get us out of this mess, 'cause there's nary a Dem in sight.
To their credit, the GOP is sort of rethinking
things these days. However, the Dems dare not think bad thoughts
of any kind because they fear the electronic
mind worms the far right implanted in them when they were asleep,
and they know people like Pat Roberts can still
flip a switch at any time and cause them much pain.
That's why I don't buy the "they're all the same" argument.
Our side is soooooo afraid to offend Karl Rove while
their side is beating our f-ing brains in.

Conservatives, time to act!
I'm really not sure at this point that the country
and the world will survive three more years of this
bumbling, deceitful, artificial, and thoroughly
mediocre man, and his bumbling, deceitful, artificial,
and thoroughly mediocre courtiers...I suppose
the world has survived far worse; it did survive Hitler.
I suppose we'll "survive" in the sense that the
United States will still be here. But what kind of country
and world? I say this not as an ideologue, but
as a citizen: The prospect of relying on these incompetents
to protect us and manage the world for three
more years is genuinely alarming."

Gee - I'm a strong liberal who never ever thought
or said those things about Tillman

any other liberal who said or wote such things.
Dorothy, I can't blame you for not reading every

EVERY e-mail I got that day called him an idiot/coward/steroid-laden
asshole. It was damn sad.

Subject: Forcing women to bear
the children of their rapist is wrong
The State of South Dakota has passed a law that
prohibits all abortions with no exceptions for rape or incest.
What this means is if a woman is raped she is
forced by the State to bear the child of the rapist against her will.
And this is touted but South Dakota as "moral"?
I don't think so.
Some of us have a different standard of what is
right and wrong and my values say that it is
fundamentally wrong to force the victims of rapists
to bear the children of their attacker.

"I would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade,
which would then force
"X" number of women to undergo illegal
and dangerous operations."
-- John McCain, during his "I'm Bush's bitch" 2000 presidential campaign,
"I've never agreed with Roe v. Wade, so (its
repeal) wouldn't bother me any."
-- John McCain, in a January 06 interview,
You may think you are a "NeoCon Insider"-but
if you were only brought on board as recently as 2000,
you are most probably not.
No matter how elegant your office space or how
impressive your title and rich your paycheck, the chances are that
in this administration you are there either for
the same reasons Scooter and Brownie got their jobs or you are there for
something that is, perhaps, even more devious.
If, like others, you were astonished to have received your appointment
you should allow the shivers of fear to percolate
through your nervous system. It is only reasonable to be nervous.
All administrations must needs fill thousands
of appointments but only this administration has done so with such a
devious agenda, laying out the battle ground
in advance in curious ways.
G. Gordon Libby fell on his sword because he was
self-programmed to do just that; it accorded with his views.
That will not be the case with yourself. The
NeoCons doubtless noted what good cover he made.
The conferences the Bush Administration held before
this administration was assembled were different than any
administration in the past. Real NeoCon Insiders,
such as John Fund, provided the names for appointments, such as
your own. They had unusual criteria for their
suggestions, criteria that included if you could arguably be spun as
incompetent when the time came for you to go
off the back of the Sleigh. They knew the G. Gordons were thin upon
the ground. You can think of it as an appointment
but the reality is very much like being the guestof honor at a
cannibalistic barbecue. In ancient times they
always ensured the guest of honor for the ceremony was well fed.
Easy to see why.
Subject: The Stones
The Stones couldn't play? Pleeeze.
If you are a guitar player, try coping a couple
Keith Richards licks and than tell me the Stones
Chris, have you ever heard Keith tell the story of how the "Satisfaction"
riff came to him in his sleep?
It's true - he was dreaming that riff and woke up and wrote it down
right away so he could be sure
to remember exactly how it went.
I can't play guitar - not even one percent.
But if you gave me a guitar and 90 seconds, I could play "Satisfaction"
with no problem.
It's three notes.
How long could it take a Okie with an IQ of 64 to learn three notes?
Seriously, in the history of mankind, did even one kid ever say,
"I want to grow up and be a guitar player
like Keith Richards?"

The whore press continues to protect Der Monkey
Seven months have passed since we began politely
asking Corporate Media pollsters to include
impeachment questions in their polls. Despite
our efforts, every media pollster has refused to include
an impeachment question (unless we paid for it).
The few that have bothered to reply to our letters
(like Richard Morin of the Pentagon Post) have
basically told us to go "Cheney" ourselves. In the past
two weeks, most of these pollsters have released
new data. And every single poll shows a steep drop
in Bush's approval rating. It's time to tell
the media pollsters to stop censoring the truth and to include
an impeachment question in every poll from now
until Bush is impeached - and imprisoned.
Bart, I saw David Letterman the other day
He's still doing very unfunny Clinton/Monica jokes.
I turned it off right away
Paul, Dave is super-lazy.
His audience is mostly tourists who really want an excuse to laugh,
and Dave knows that
any joke with "desk" or "Monica" or "blow" or "suck" or "cow" a hundred
other buzz words
can be turned into a Clinton joke - so he lazily takes the low-hanging
...but what makes him differenmt from Leno is it is possible
for him to get a shot off at Bush.
Leno has been kissing Nazi ass since loooooooooooooong before 9-11.

Parents Deserve the Truth
The Tillmans are justifiably skeptical that the
probe will reveal anything new. As Patrick Sr. said,
"I think it's another step. But if you send investigators
to reinvestigate an investigation that was falsified in the
first place, what do you think you're going to
get?" He's right, of course, but the fact that the Army is launching
this criminal probe only demonstrates how effective
the Tillmans have been in challenging the Pentagon, while
being armed with nothing but their outrage. As
Col. Joseph Curtin, an Army spokesman at the Pentagon said,
"We want to do the right thing for the family.
We owe it to the family. We owe them the truth." It's an amazing
admission. With over 2,300 U.S. troops and tens
of thousands of Iraqis killed for a presidential administration's
ambitions and lies, now one family is at last
owed "the truth." It's a start, I suppose.
I read that he was killed while driving a Humvee.
Why are our soldiers shooting at Humvees?
Hey Bart, I am a Sopranos junkie and I
am looking forward to this season, plus the extra 8 episode season.
I hope it is worth the 16 month hiatus. I don't
think AJ would ever tangle in the "business".
I mean he cried at the sight of a bear last year.
Dude, if I ever get that close to a bear, first
I'm going to cry,
then I'm going to wet myself while mumbling "Mama,"
then I'm going to ask God to protect me.

This season should be great.
I am looking forward to the Furio subplot along
with how Chris deals with the loss of Adriana.
People getting whacked this year for sure....
in my opinion:
Only one week to go....
Phil should go first.
I think Bobby is safe.
Tony should do Paulie with his bare hands to pay him back for the painting.
Vito is gay - lots of ways to make that hit interesting...but I read
that the actor who
plays Furio isn't coming back. Maybe Tony will whack him off-camera.

Bart, a while back you wrote:

I was in Haglanyah during elections with the mightiest
military on Earth and I watched... people voted.
We ran a shuttle service from one part of the
town to the voting facility in fact and I watched the people
go by the bus load to vote. My buddies were in
Ramadi...the people voted there too.
