"I knew something was happening when I had John Murtha on several months ago and he 
talked about his plan for a timetable. And I got several calls from people at the Pentagon 
and others and they said, "You know Murtha's right." And I was stunned because you 
don't usually get those kinds of calls. Then General Zinni said that Rumsfeld should resign. 
One former general said we have a civil war going on at the Pentagon. The generals are 
trying to reclaim control of the war because they do believe serious mistakes were made." 
     --Tim Russert, slut-to-slut with Dom Imus,   Link


Nullifying the Press

Michael Wolff said, "McClellan himself, as though having some terrible social disability, has, standing miserably
in the press briefing room every day, become a kick-me archetype. He's Piggy in 'Lord of the Flies': a living
victim, whose reason for being is, apparently, to shoulder public ridicule and pain (or, come to think of it, 
he's Squealer from 'Animal Farm'). He's the person nobody would ever choose to be."


Forest Gump's Evil Twin


America at large is starting to realize -- finally -- that Bush is exactly as stupid as he looks, sounds and acts. 
How extraordinary. Something is happening here that has never happened in America's history. A consensus 
is sweeping the nation. Not that the war in Iraq is wrong, or that oil companies are screwing us blue, or that 
the climate is going to hell, or that good-paying jobs are being replaced by low-paying jobs, or that our 
national health care system is a disgrace, or that that the rich are getting a lot richer while the middle class 
gets poorer. While all that's true, and more and more folks are getting it, that's not the consensus of which 
I speak. Nope. This one is bigger! Here it is: The president of the United States is a moron.



FDA Disses Medical Marijuana


Bush's faith-based FDA said Thursday that "no sound scientific studies" supported the medical use of marijuana, 
contradicting a 1999 review by a panel of highly regarded scientists. Susan Bro, an agency spokeswoman, said 
Thursday's statement resulted from a past combined review by federal drug enforcement, regulatory and research 
agencies that concluded "smoked marijuana has no currently  accepted or proven medical use in the United States 
and is not an approved medical treatment."

Well, of course "no studies support MM" because no studies have been done. Susan Bro didn't unviel a scientific 
study that said pot didn't help medically.  The government refuses to study it, and they refuse to study it 
because - Oh my God - what if the results confirmed what thousands of sick people know?  That it works!


Subject: song writing

It's the same reason Star Wars rocked and A Phantom Menace sucked.

In high school, George Lucas was a geek.  He was (at the time) skinny, small, wore glasses, 
and had a somewhat high squeaky voice, with an obvious interest in science fiction and fantasy.

He channelled that into his film.  And so long as he wasn't wildly successful, 
he was able to keep thinking, "God dammit, when will I be able to make a living?!"

And then Star Wars hit.

And the high he got from that inspired him to make Empire Strikes Back.  That also kicked ass, 
and so he made Return of the Jedi, the weakest of the original trilogy (though still a good movie).

Sixteen years later, he makes a piece of crap that doesn't even appeal to kids.  
Trust me.  I saw TPM with a nine-year-old.  He didn't like it.

So there you have it.  It's not that great songwriters lose their talent, 
it's that artistic engines lose their fuel when they become really successful.

From: The situation at Duke

Funny, the same right wing bastards that are attacking the alleged victim
were the same ones ready to burn Kobe Bryant.

But that can't be because of race or anything.
 Charlie B

Dude, good point.  The most racist of the whites among us (Republicans) will always
get back to the behavior of "those people" so they can pretend they're so "superior" to them.

Meanwhile, on that same page, we had:

Republican County Councilman Keola Childs pleaded guilty to molesting a male child.
Republican activist John Butler was charged with criminal sexual assault on a teenage girl.
Republican candidate Richard Gardner admitted to molesting his two daughters.
Republican Councilman Jack W. Gardner was convicted of molesting a 13-year old girl.

But the Gop/KKK insists the "darkies" need to be on a leash.

...and why did sexpot Jeff Gannon get a White House press pass with a fake name?




"The biggest issues of the election are character issues.... the Republicans' trustworthiness 
  and honesty and their competence. And they are going to lose big on both those issues. 
  After that we get to Iraq, we get to the economy, we get to healthcare."

Subject: 9-11 conspiracies

Here's the most cogent, non-tin foil hat sounding arguments that I've seen:


1. Fire had never before caused steel-frame buildings to collapse except for the three buildings on 9/11,
    nor has fire collapsed any steel high rise since 9/11.
2. The fires, especially in the South Tower and WTC-7, were small.
3. WTC-7 was unharmed by an airplane and had only minor fires on the seventh and twelfth floors
    of this 47-story steel building yet it collapsed in less than 10 seconds.

Woman Arrested for Speaking

At an outdoor ceremony, Bush told Chinese President Hu: "China has become successful because the Chinese 
people are experience the freedom to buy, and to sell, and to produce -- and China can grow even more successful 
by allowing the Chinese people the freedom to assemble, to speak freely, and to worship." 

Seconds later, one of the people on the White House south lawn tried to speak 
and she was promptly hauled off and arrested...

saw it on therandirhodesshow.com

The Bush-worshipping idiots at CNN then said the incident was "a blemish" on Hu's visit..


'Ponte: Iran No Threat
 He doesn't go by "Negro" anymore...


Even though the threat does not appear imminent, Iran's resumption of uranium enrichment activities,
its operation of 164 centrifuges and the continuing stream of extreme statements issued by regime leaders
continue to cause concern, Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte said April 20.

Negroponte, a Bush felon from the Iran-Contra years, sought to put Iran's technical capabilities into perspective,
pointing out that Iran will have to enrich uranium for several more years before it has enough material to
make a bomb.  Although intelligence says Iran is determined to acquire a nuclear weapons capability,
Negroponte said, they believe it might not achieve that goal until "perhaps into the next decade."

  Damn, he's Poppy's friend."


Subject: song writing

Dear Bartcop,

I love your site and witty humor, but the assumption that men have a higher sex drive is a problem.

Whoa, I don't think I said that.
I linked the writing (or maybe the aggression) to testosterone and then noted that the songs
get more tired and sappy as the testosterone wanes - at least that's what I meant to say :)

I would bet on some good tequila that the lack of females in rock music has litttle or nothing to do
with biology, but everything to do with patriarchy.  Why some of the classics aren't writing good
music these days,  maybe the music cooporations aren't putting forward or encouraging older musicians???
How many musicians on MTV are older than 30???

Keep up the site, its great!

I hear you, but that's no reason why McCartney would write a song as bad as "Freedom."
I swear, give me an hour of piano lessons and I could do better.

Iraq PM to Step Down
 Bush needs a puppet he can control


Bowing to intense pressure from Der Monkey's goons, Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari agreed
to allow Shiite lawmakers to find someone else to head the new government, abandoning his claim
on another term in the face of Sunni and Kurdish opposition.


Numerology And Detention Camps
  by RB Ham


According to many researchers of the power elite, contained within the dogma of  their secret societies 
is a fascination with dates, numerology and the symbolism it represents.  An example many cite is April 19. 
Hitler's Birthday and also the anniversaries of the Waco massacre and the OK City bombing.
Or, for instance, George Bush Sr. publicly proclaiming the birth of a New World Order on 9-11-1991. 
We all know what happened exactly 10 years later.
If this is true, and, as some of these researchers (Alex Jones for example) believe, 
these New World Order types truly do view themselves as a Luceferian, Satanic cult....
And if it's true, as has been discussed openly by even mainstream sources, 
that just one more major terrorist "event"  might usher in Martial Law...
Do you think they would pass up 6-6-6?

Kerry 'thinking hard' about run in 2008

 "They'll take me seriously this time..."


Kerry thinking about another White House bid in 2008 and will decide before the year is out.
"I will make that decision toward the end of the year, but I'm thinking about it hard," Kerry said.

"If you can get help me find 60,000 votes in Ohio ...," he joked, referring to the close race in that state
where he tried to concede early but Der Monkey was already in his jam-jams for the night.

I've been doing some thinking... no, seriously, ...
We're going to need a military man on the ticket.

My dream ticket is Clinton-Clark or Clark-Clinton, I don't care.
I might be able to live with a Clinton-Kerry ticket, but Kerry-Clinton is a sure loser.

Kerry lost his balls years ago, plus, he can't speak as well as Bush.
repeat: Kerry can't speak as well as Bush, so he can't win.
We need a fighter this time, not another premature surrenderfest.

Subject: election year 2006

Hi Bart,

I agree with your past statements about not having much of an alternative this year, in terms of forming 
a new party to address the corporate takeover of the government. I think the #1 issue has to be to get 
the Bushistas out of Congress and then we will be able to investigate the issues that need to be investiated. 

This is very important to do this year. No doubt, the supporting documents have been destroyed, but there 
might be much to learn in the memories of people still alive. We need Democrats in that won't stop the investigations. 
I have written to my congreeman about these issues, David Wu of Oregon, and I believe he still support such
investigations. I urge everyone to write their congresspeople, and get thier response to that question and 
make that an issue in this election. 

Please keep hammering and encourage others to pick up the hammer with you and get these evil bastards.


Subject: Can you name a woman with a string of song writing hits?

Akron, Ohio's own Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders.
Keep hammerin'

Richard C,
Project Manager

Interesting... of all the women mentioned so far, she would fit the best, but...
Of all the women mentioned, wouldn't Chrissie be considered ...kinda, maybe the most masculine?

That's not an attack, I'm just saying... check out this line from Tattooed Love Boys:
"I shot my mouth off ...and he showed me what that hole was for." 
Those aren't estrogen lyrics, those are testosterone-on-steroids lyrics.

I think medical science says all humans have both testosterone and estrogen.

Maybe Chrissie has a little more testosterone than some ladies, which helps her songwriting.
and maybe Elton John or that guy from Coldplay are a little heavier on the estrogen,
thus producing more poetry and ballads than headbanging, stadium anthems.
Remember, these are not attacks.

Can't the same thing be applied to one's pick of instrument?
Drummers, singers and guitar players are more aggressive.
They write more and tend to lead the bands, where the keyboard players and bass players
tend to be less dominant, and less likely to die in a motorcyle wreck or a drug overdose?

This isn't "Bart's Manifesto on Human Biology,"
it's just some thoughts that seem to have a common theme.

The Great Revulsion


"I have a vision maybe just a hope of a great revulsion: a moment in which the American people 
look at what is happening, realize how their good will and patriotism have been abused, and put a stop 
to this drive to destroy much of what is best in our country."

I wrote those words three years ago in the introduction to my column collection, "The Great Unraveling." 
It seemed a remote prospect at the time: Baghdad had just fallen and Bush had a 70 percent approval rating.

Now the great revulsion has arrived. The latest Fox News poll puts Bush's approval at only 33 percent. 
Red America now has a smaller population than New York City.

The proximate causes of Mr. Bush's plunge in the polls are familiar: the heck of a job he did on Katrina, 
the prescription drug debacle and, above all, the quagmire in Iraq.


If you see a star in an anti-Bush or pro-peace shirt,
please send that in.

Subject: is 2378 dead soldiers accurate?

Bart, I heard a creepy rumor that there were several thousand more soldiers who had died
in Germany after they were evacuated from Iraq who were not in the total body count.
Think it is possible?


Dude, without a free press, there's no way to know.

We printed stories years ago about the wounded being put on trucks in a hurry, because if they
died pre-truck, they were "war casualties," but if they made it to the truck or to the plane or the
hospital - whatever - they were counted differently.

I think that 2378 figure is "war casualties."
Maybe the real number is 6,000 dead, but Bush cooks the books.
Changing the rules is a BFEE trademark.

They changed the air quality rules to make Los Angeles, not Houston, the nation's
smoggiest city because President Handjob didn't want Houston's reputation "clouded."

If the American press weren't such worthless bastards, we might know the facts.


Heels Dug In


The reaction to the generals' revolt is getting ridiculous. Bush and Rumsfeld and Rumsfeld's loyal officers 
have gone to such lengths to defend the Pentagon chief from attacks by a handful of retired generals that he's 
starting to look like the secretary of defensiveness.  Officers have always resisted quietly (as Colin Powell did 
when proposals were floated to intervene in Bosnia in the early 1990s), and perhaps the real question is why 
this has taken so long to go public.

It figures that Powell (R-Traitor) resisted Bosnia, where no American lives were lost,
but he kept his mouth shut as Bush pushed 2379 soldiers into the open, mass grave.

Subject: rape and TV leading characters

One of the most deftly handled examples of this is the BBC series "Cracker"
with Robbie Coltrane as Fitz and Geraldine Sommerville as DS Jane Penhaligon.

Panhandle, Fitz's pet name for her, was raped by DS Jimmy Beck (Lorcan Cranitch)
and the resulting fallout was fascinating to watch.

One of the best detective shows EVER to air on tv.
No, the best, hands down.

Steve, didn't see it.
I only watch "today's crappy, un-original" American TV, however...
Someone mentioned Dr. Melfi (not the lead actress) on The Sopranos.
She was raped by a guy she could identify, 

Little known fact: Actress Lorraine Bracco was badly hurt in that simulated rape.
I think her shoulder was seperated and she needed surgery to fix it.

and she knew if she told Tony...

Which brings up a morbid, but fascinating possibility:
If Carmella, Tony's wife, or Meadow, Tony's daughter, was raped, the hunt for the bastard and
the eventual "application of justice" would be unlike anything that's ever been on TV before.

I just wanted to get this in print before I forgot about it.
Don't you think a fitting way to close The Sopranos would be for AJ to whack some dude?
Wouldn't that demonstrate the cycle of violence, the passing down of the "traditions," good and bad?

I can still see the pain on Vito Corleone's face when Tom Hagen said, "It was Michael who shot Sollozzo."
Like Vito, Tony never wanted "our thing" for AJ, because he's a scared-bunny Democrat.
Those hardball Republican monsters would chew him up - but if AJ changes, and hardens up,
The Sopranos could have one damn memorable goodbye next year.

David, if you want you can use that AJ idea :)


 Iraq pumps 2,000,000 barrels a day,
(and that was before the 2002 Halliburton Upgrade)
 times today's oil price which is$71.95 a barrel
makes $142,900,000 Bush stole just yesterday

...add to that, Iran pumps 3M barrels a day.

Once the sick bastard invades, that's 5M barrels a day
times today's oil price which is  $71.95 a barrel
makes $359,750,000 dollars Bush will steal daily

That's a third of a billion dollars every day
No wonder they were so eager to start a war

...and what did it cost us?

2378  2379 soldiers' lives


Subject: song writers

Bart,  Give me a break.  You said:

> "U2 is still rocking the world with new, vibrant songs that really pump the adrenaline."

How many times have you heard someone humming, let alone singing, a U2 song?
How many times have you heard a bar full of people join in when a U2 song plays on a jukebox?
In 25 years, I could count the number of times on the fingers of one hand and still have fingers left.
I don't deny the group is popular but their music is anything but new or vibrant.
It's the same old stuff with the same old nasal delivery.

Ray in Gillespie

Ray, you don't like U2 because you're a stupid idiot
who's not smart enough to understand good music when you hear it!!!
Just kidding.

If you don't like US, that's OK with me.
It means I don't have to fight you in the ticket line :)

Rude Rich started this
He sent me an e-mail about how Springsteen was gonna do a tour doing Woody Guthrie songs.

Woody Guthrie songs?

I'm so old, I remember when Springsteen rocked. I remember when Rolling Stone
called Springsteen, "The future of rock," and now he's doing Woody Guthrie songs?
Poor bastard must've lost his testosterone.
I'll bet he stopped downloading porn, too :)
