Quote of the Day

"This will be no war - there will be a fairly brief 
  and ruthless military intervention.   It will be 
  greeted by the majority of the Iraqi people 
  as an emancipation. And I say, bring it on." 
      -- Christopher Hitchens, Jan 28, 2003, Link

  Hitchens loves Bush more than Pickles.

Murtha: "The president needs to fire some people over Iraq."

Russert: "Who needs to be fired?"

Murtha: "That's up to the president."

Russert: "Feingold wants to censure Bush - do you agree?"

Murtha: "I don't know enough about it, Tim"

Why does Murtha have to be so mealy-mouthed?
Why can't Democrats try speaking the plain truth?
Why are they all so goddamn afraid to speak?

Three Options for America's Future
 by Robert Parry as seen on  Consortiumnews.com


Every great nation eventually reaches a crossroads where it can proceed down an easy path that leads to
catastrophe or it can show courage and creativity in finding another route that protects the future. The United
States is at such a juncture with national leadership that has demonstrated an incapacity to solve the nation's
problems, but which is determined to stay the course for three more years. There are, however, other options.

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


Pigboy: Insurgents on 'Last Gasp'
 If only there was a penalty for lying


On the March 14 edition of his nationally syndicated show, Rush Limbaugh said,
"What do you think this is doing for the morale of these insurgents who are probably
in their last gasp over there or close to it?" and "How many Iraqi women and children
have been killed by insurgents who have been emboldened by the American left?"

Rush gets paid $3M a month to fabricate pro-Republican lies.
He never has to pay a penalty for lying or being wrong.
His listeners allow him to turn 180s whenever it suits the day's news.


Libby Defense May Hurt Bush


Lawyers for Cheney's former top aide are suggesting they may delve deeply at his criminal trial into
infighting among the White House, the CIA and the State Department over intelligence lies to sell the war.

In a court filing, Libby's legal team said that in 2003, the status of  Valerie Plame was at most a peripheral issue
to "the finger-pointing that went on within the executive branch about who was to blame" for the failure to find WMDs.

Is this good news?
Or are they setting the stage for letting Libby go because to try him,
"Would reveal national security secrets to Osama?"



"We're all  neo-cons now."
    -- Chris Matthews, April 9, 2003, gushing at and cheering for Bush,Link

"I'll do anything for that man."


Subject: your readers

Be aware that when you smear your readers by calling them lefty fringe wall-huggers or whatever,
you're insulting a lot of moderate New Democrats who hold the beliefs you're attacking.


Craig, I don't attack a position if it makes sense.
And those who see me as Bush's clone are on the extreme left.
How else could they confuse me with Bush?



"Continued Democratic reluctance to confirm any conservative judge is expected, but conservatives
  are appalled at the lack of interest by Senate Republicans in confronting this outrage."
       -- Bob Novak, not happy that Democrats rubber-stamping every Nazi Bush nominates, Link

Hey Novakula, has syphillis eaten away your rapidly-deteriorating mind?
The right-wing is the only group who has killed a Bush nomination.

The Democrats have rubber-stamped every sick bastard Bush sent up.


Can we get past this?

Subject: you were not fooled in 2003

Hey Bart,

I'm having a hard time with your position on the run-up to war.
If  you look at your back issues, such as this one, for example;

http://www.bartcop.com/0993.htm  you were not fooled by the lies at the time.

...and I'm not fooled today.  I've never trusted Bush for a second,
but the topic is "How could a senator have believed Bush before the war?"

And I know from email exchanges with you that you were against this invasion from the very beginning.
I don't understand the whole "who could've known?" position you now seem to be taking.

You and I both knew this was bullshit from the beginning and there's no excusing senators, be they Kerry,
Hillary or Reid, who couldn't see what you and I plainly saw.   There was no threat and the Iraq misadventure
was a monumental error right from the start, as you said at the time.

Love the page and the show so, no, you are not losing a reader.
Just  wanted to express my confusion at your current stance.

Mark H

My position hasn't changed.
When I express an opinion on this page, there's no way the East Coast can be wiped out.
If I was making life-and-death decisions for tens of millions of people, I'd have to be a lot more careful.

We weren't at the senate's CIA briefing, but IF the CIA said, "Saddam CAN hit us, we're 100% sure,"
then I don't think you can fault a senator for saying, "Let's stop that from happening."

You and I didn't get a private briefing from the CIA, so we were certain without all the evidence.
In the end, our hunch was right, but who bets tens of millions of lives on a hunch?

Thanks for being level-headed and civil.
So many people are unable to discuss anything without wild-ass, childish hysterics.
Some people have to scream "fuck you" at anyone with a different opinion.


Anti-War protests in LA last weekend

Quagmire: Year Four Begins
 The world hates what we've become under Bush


Protesters in South Korea demanded their government bring home its 3,200 troops from Iraq,
the largest contingent of foreign troops after the U.S. and Britain.

"No occupation in Iraq!" chanted the protesters in Seoul, holding signs reading, "No War, No Bush."

"The U.S. has massacred hundreds of thousands ... of people in Iraq," a speaker told the crowd.
"The U.S. imperialists should be brought to the war tribunal."


Man Claims 9-11 'Smoking Gun'


Schwarz saw a French film entitled The Barbarian Invasion.

Contained in the film unrelated to 9-11, is a segment which Schwartz says
clearly shows a Boeing 737 airliner striking the south tower.

"This segment conclusively shows a 737 hit the south tower, not a 767.
This in itself should be the smoking gun, which proves the whole story
given to us by the government about 9-11 is untrue."



Subject: wild about Hillary

Here in Missouri, we like fighters, and the more I hear the negatives about Hillary, the more I love her.
She's going to kick some ass when she becomes president. She's just mad enough at those who
persecuted her for twelve years to let them have it with both barrels.

How can anyone NOT like her?
She's tough, smart, and not afraid to stand up to the "best" of the liars and cheats.

Harry Truman would be proud; at last someone with a spine to run the country again.
 Marian in Missouri

Some people want Hillary to hug that left wall, the wall that prevents winning.

"What's significant about Rummy's essay is not his inability to think beyond his egotism. 
  It's the fact that only in an environment where a free press has sold its soul could such

  by an emotionally handicapped wack-job, and no one is saying "boo" about it."

"Mr. President: Did you ever hold conservative notions and assumptions on the issue of spending?

Subject: water wars coming

You are really up on things!  MAN, you just amaze me some times.

You are only the second person that I have heard say any thing about the coming shortage of water
and the wars that it will bring. Some of the biggest barons on the planet are secretly buying up water rights
in order to control water in the future. YOU, my man hit a nail on the head with your observation on the
Mexican water war and Enron looking into buying water rights in Southern California.

I, for one, worry about this potential threat to the water supply.

Personal Fog of War


His 3-year-old son Nicholas' first steps, the first time Liam, his newborn, smiled
Sgt. Dou Piper lived to see them. Then his memory erased those precious moments.

"I can't remember what they did yesterday," Piper says.
"Sometimes, I can't remember what I did yesterday. The days are broken."

In the war's first month, Piper was wounded in action. A grenade mangled his right eye,
collapsed his right eardrum and slammed his brain against the inside of his skull.

Can't Stay, Can't Leave


Our army is in danger," said former senator Gary Hart. "If all-out civil war breaks out, we could lose our army.
If Sunnis and Shiites take to the streets by the thousands, it could literally be impossible to get [the soldiers] out.
I know that sounds apocalyptic, but it's not out of the question. We need an exit strategy. We have no choice.
We're making things worse. 90% of the insurgents are Iraqis who don't like the fact that we have occupied their country. ...

"I know we can't just pack up and leave right away, but we're still acting as if we hold all the cards over there.
We don't. We're losing control of the situation. ... The British occupied Iraq for 35 years and finally had to leave
because there was a constant insurgency against them. We haven't learned anything."


Subject: Nader in 2000

Bart -

Don't forget about the electoral college, in the state of Florida Nader took enough votes away
from Gore to give the state to Bush, and that one state's electoral votes, had they gone to Gore,
would have given Gore the victory.  Ok- so you're thinking "yeah but not all the Nader voters
would have voted for Gore because many wouldn't have voted at all if Nader wasn't on the ballot".
Well not so fast, look at the actual numbers.

    * Bush        2,912,790
    * Gore        2,912,253
    * Nader           94,488

source for these numbers is :http://www.fec.gov/pubrec/2000presgeresults.htm

So in reality (and we are reality based, right?) only 538 of the people who voted Nader had to vote
instead for Gore (because I think we can agree that no one who voted for Nader would have voted for Bush)
and in all likelihood many more would have voted for Gore for gore to have carried the state.

PS keep up the good work...

Subject: We've lost the war

We can pretend that we are winning in Iraq but we have already lost the war.
The reason is that there is no insurgency.   Iraq is in a civil war and the only way 
we can win the war is to defeat the people who we are trying to liberate. 

You can't win a war when you don't know who the enemy is. 
And who is the enemy? 
Bush is America's enemy.

Preemptive Nukes for Iran?


As our ears prick to the drumbeat of Bush v. Iran, a highly respected researcher warns that WashingtonBush
is edging toward a policy of nuclear preemption, and Teheran knows it. Although the post 9/11 doctrine of US 
military strategy known as "Global Strike" is often promoted as a post nuclear plan, Hans M. Kristensen finds 
documentary evidence that a "nuclear option" is included.

"Global Strike is offensive and preemptive in nature and deeply rooted in the expectation that deterrence 
"will" fail sooner or later. Rather than waiting for the mushroom cloud to appear, the Global Strike mission 
is focused on defeating the threat before it is unleashed."

Our best hope is the that some Republicans tell Bush that "Whoops, my bad" nukes are not acceptable.
Bush is religiously insane, he has no busuiness with his super-itchy finger on the button.

 "Follow me ...to Heaven."

Damn it Bart!
What the hell are you trying to do, make me forget all the horror for a few seconds?
We Dems LOVE to suffer. That's why we belong to this friggin' party ;)))


Rob, several people wrote screaming, "Who gives a fuck?!!!!!?"
Some people prefer to read only about war, death, torture, etc 24/7.
I don't understand them.

"He looked like an alternatively commander in chief,

Lately, he looks into the CNN camera and says, "How did this moron get elected?"


Subject: Democrats called me

Just got a phone solicitation from the DNC.
I sounded just like Bart - I told them they weren't getting another effing dime from me until
(and here's where I raised my voice) JUST ONE SENATOR SHOWS SOME BALLS!!

I said the GD president's rating is at 35% and the senate cowards won't lift a finger.
This is where I hung up the phone.

Anyway, just one more voice from the wilderness!

Reminder: Not a dime for the Democrats until AFTER they start fighting back. (Wes Clark excluded)


Bush's 12% Approval Rating 


...during the height of Watergate, even Nixon had 25% approval. So, no matter who is President, 
I contend 25% of the people polled are gonna approve of them.    25% of 1018 is 255. 

That means of the 347 who approved of Bush 255 would've approved of him no matter what. 
Let's throw those 255 out of our sample of 1018.   That leaves 763 total people polled. 
Of those 763, 92 approved (347-255) that is a whopping 12% approval rating!


Subject: Nuremberg

 Dear Bartcop,
thank you very much for keeping sanity alive in these worst of all possible,
(yeah, I know. The worst isn't here yet) times!

It's very clear that Bush and close pals should be in cells underneath the Hague, waiting for trial 
on the charge of Crimes Against Humanity. I too am aghast at the cowardliness of the Dems in Congress. 
After seeing it for so long, I fear that the real problem is worse than a severe lack of courage.

Money. They suckle at the same troughs as do the Rapeuglicans. They're bought and paid for 
by the same coffers that keep the self satisfied screw the little guy sheen on the faces of the GOPers.

Thank you very much, you make my week sometimes!

South Park's War on Tom Cruise


"South Park" has declared war on Scientology, digging in against the celebrity-endorsed religion after
a controversial episode mocking outspoken Scientologist Tom Cruise was yanked abruptly from the
schedule Wednesday with Internet rumors it was covert warfare by Cruise that led to its departure.

Internet bloggers accused Cruise of threatening to not promote "Mission Impossible 3," if the episode ran.
Comedy Central is owned by Viacom, as is Paramount, which is putting out "MI:3."


Subject: Bush's war

Bush's war is so fucking stupid as to be incomprehensible. 
Rational solutions can't apply.  The only way to get out is to cut and run.
only make up a new name for it, like "uncontrolled rephasing of expeditionay force assets". 
Yikes! I'm thinking like a damn Republican. 

Keep it up, Bart

Without a doubt, Bush will "cut and run" this year, but like you said,
he'll call it something else and Bush's army of talking heads will agree
that Bush pulled out at exactly the right time - just before the election.

Subject: Hillary

Bart, I hope you are right about Hillary, because she most likely will be the democratic nominee. 
But, what I fear most about her is that she will listen to the consultants, and run a cautious, triangulating, 
calculating campaign, like Kerry and Gore before her.  I fear that, because she has shown signs that she is 
leaning the DLC consultant way.  She has shown little of the fighting spirit and political instincts that some have 
attributed to her.  But she has shown some indication that she is under the sway of the Shrum-led losers in DC.

I'm willing to withhold judgement, because I know a lot of what Hillary is doing now is playing the game, 
to some extent.  How much of an extent that is, only time will tell.  A lot of the people who have written 
to you about Hillary have been too hate-filled and fanatical to accept this point.  To them, Molly too, 
I say, don't hate the player, hate the game.


Clark, we'll see a new Hillary after she wins re-election.
Then she will be free to speak her mind.

"The war winds down, politics heats up...Picture perfect. 
   Part Spider-Man, part Tom Cruise, part Ronald Reagan. 
   The president seizes the moment on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific." 
     -- PBS's Gwen Ifill, outright worshipping The First Monkey on "Mission Accomplished",    Link

This is America's "liberal" press?
This is the American press that's been "hounding" poor George Bush, 24/7?

Remember when the Monkey landed on that carrier and preened around like an ass showing off his codpiece?
The whore networks insinuated that Bush himself, landed the plane, the lying bastards.

Remember Chris Matthews and Russert and G. Gordon Liddy going triple-hardon over Bush, 
gushing praise of a sexual nature over this pinhead about how great that never-elected idiot looked 
as he walked around waving his codpiece at the camera?

             "Hey girls, I'm Captain Cock - Look my my 'junk'."

...and Bush's whore media ate it with a big, big spoon.


Angelina Jolie in a wedding dress?


The main thing missing from the much-rumored wedding between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
was the bride and groom. Still, officials held out hope that the couple would show up this weekend
to tie the knot in Clooney's Lake Como retreat.  Cernobbio Mayor Simona Saladini said she was told
Saturday to remain on standby for possible official functions into the evening.
