War in the
Age of 'Poodle-ism'
by Brent Budowsky
Since we live in an age of careerism where those
who speak the truth can expect reprisals,
it is perhaps not surprising that America's politics
and journalism are dominated by a combination
of bullies who punish dissenters and timid souls
who maneuver endlessly to avoid offending the powerful.
In this guest essay, political analyst Brent Budowsky
notes that Tony Blair may deserve his nickname
"the poodle" for acting as Bush's lapdog, but
that Blair is not alone. There are plenty of American
accommodators and facilitators who have helped
enable the loss of democratic values in the United States
and the bloody disasters unfolding in the Middle
Budowsky suggests that this culture of timidity
deserves its own label, "poodle-ism."

the Nixon era
Specter to expand Bush's power
With one piece of legislation, Sen. Arlen Specter
seeks to expand Bush's radical theory of
executive power beyond the wildest dreams of
Dick Cheney or even John Yoo. Just when it
looked as though some semblance of checks and
balances was being restored, Specter
-- the Pennsylvania Republican who masqueraded
for months as a tenacious opponent of the
White House -- offers a bill that would strike
an immeasurable blow for the Bush vision of an
imperial presidency...In reality, Specter does
not want to amend the mandates of FISA so much
as abolish them. His bill makes it optional,
rather than mandatory, for the president to
subject himself to judicial oversight when
eavesdropping on Americans, in effect returning
the nation to the pre-FISA era. Bush would be
allowed to eavesdrop at will, precisely the situation
that led to the surveillance abuses of the Nixon
White House and J. Edgar Hoover's FBI."
"One night a couple of years ago we all went
to bed in one era of history
and woke up in another...I knew on
that tragic day that many more tragic
days were to follow, and I made the
decision that I would use my little space
to scream out louder against the great
injustices the United States government
was about to unleash upon the planet."
-- Aaron McGruder, on why he turned political

A sad fact is he probably will be reelected.

For 'Tar Baby'
At least he didn't call it "The Big Nig"
Gov. Mitt Romney has apologized for referring
to the "Big dig" as a "tar baby" in Iowa,
saying he did not know anyone would be offended
by the term some consider a racial epithet.
Saturday, Romney, who wants to be president with
that attitude, acknowledged he took a big
political risk in taking control of the project
after a fatal tunnel ceiling collapse, but said inaction
would have been even worse.
"The best thing politically would be to stay as
far away from that tar baby as I can,"
he told a crowd of about 100 supporters in Ames,
Subject: Californian and not
There's evidence that California voted for "Ahnold"
the way Ohio voted for Bush.
Up here in beautiful Mendo (where we have been
involved in the drug war since the 70's)
we're just trying to farm and stay out of trouble,
while passing the nations most liberal laws locally.
We're involved politically, vocally, and put our
money where our mouth is.
Or our corn and beets, anyway.
Praying to the quantum god for the breakout of
peace...and a good harvest...

Weeknights on AAR
Lieberman's problems began long before he was
kissed by Bush. With his Senate seat safe,
he didn't have to fight in 2000. He went easier
on Cheney in their debate than he did against
Lamont. During the Florida recount, he made a
point of favoring military absentee ballots likely
to be Republican. Lieberman has voted 90 percent
of the time with the Democrats - but his first
impulse is often to find fault with them. His
2004 run for the White House was better known for
its attacks on fellow Democrats than on the incumbent.
He approved of Washington intervention
in the Terri Schiavo case. On Iraq, he buys the
GOP argument that equates criticism of the Bush
with hurting the troops, which means no real
oversight. (Has he forgotten the Truman Committee
during World War II?) The duty of the opposition
is to oppose.
"The duty of the opposition is to oppose."
Damn, I wish we could get our Democrats to understand
They think their duty is to rubberstamp every Fascist idea Bush has.
Subject: Did Jesus exist?
I wish the subject of religion wouldn't come up,
but it always will as long as Bush
uses the name of Jesus in vain and the atheists
keep say things like "Jesus never existed".
But relax Bart, I have found the perfect solution
for this dilemma.

After nine years of cover-ups, lies, perjury
and dereliction of their duties,
the LAPD is finally pretending to get serious
about solving BIG's murder.
Six veteran homicide detectives are leading a
new police task force into the case.
Why did they wait nine years?
So the trail would be good and cold and the shooters could get away?
Hey guys - check those missing files that LAPD I.A.D. is hiding from

Cease fire - end the madness
He wants to be president, so he's acting sane...
"Bush is a mad bastard."
Urging Der Monkey to "end this madness," Chuck
Hagel broke with the
outlaw administration and called for an immediate
cease-fire in the Mideast.
"The sickening slaughter on both sides must end
and it must end now," Hagel said.
"Bush must call for an immediate cease-fire.
This madness must stop."
Sen. Diebold is real popular with that sane minority of Republicans.
So how does 2008 look?
McCain: Bush is God.
Rice: Bush is God.
Guiliani: Bush is God
Hagel: Stop the madness you insane bastards.

and Alito Misled Us
by Ted Kennedy
Tthe careful, bipartisan process of years past
has been badly broken by Bush. The result has been
the confirmation of two justices, Roberts and
Alito, whose voting record on the court reflects not the
neutral, modest judicial philosophy they promised
the Judiciary Committee, but an activist's embrace
of the administration's political and ideological
Now that the votes are in from their first term,
we can see plainly the agenda that Roberts and Alito
sought to conceal from the committee. Our new
justices consistently voted to erode civil liberties,
decrease the rights of minorities and limit environmental
protections. At the same time, they voted to
expand the power of the president, reduce restrictions
on abusive police tactics and approve federal
intrusion into issues traditionally governed
by state law.
Ted, why are you whining?
*I* knew they were lying during that horseshit confirmation
so why didn't *you* know they were lying? Why didn't you filibuster
their fascist asses?
Yesterday I said I was real tired of hearing, "He
died doing something he loved."
You know what else I'm damn tired of hearing?
"He's going to have to answer some tough questions
before he gets my vote,"
because the Democrats in the senate always
confirm every fascist Bush nominates,
so why bother with the long-ass, jerk off show for the cameras?
Subject: Nader voters
Bart, you wrote:
> If the Nader voters voted Democrat, Gore would've won Florida.
And if my aunt had balls, she'd be my uncle.
I can agree with that.
You are assuming that all Nader voters would vote
democrat if they weren't voting for Nader?
Since a vote for Nader is a vote for Bush (and
his war, and his tax cuts)
I must assume many Nader voters know this.
The 2000 election, as you point out often, was
and I don't see how Nader voters could change
You any good at math?
Gore "lost" Florida by fewer votes than Nader got.
That means the Nader voters sealed the victory for Bush.
If you have a problem with that, attack the communicative properties
of addition, not me.
We are obviously not a very influential group.

Subject: Does Israel have a special

A lot of people have been talking about Israel's
right to exist
as if Israel has some special rights that other
countries don't have.
Israel has no more of a right to exist
than any other country.
There is nothing special about Israel.
Nor is there anything special about Jews compared
to other religions.
Judaism, like Islam and Christianity, is just

The right to exist is an earned right, based
on a country's ability to respect

I liked the Cuban music in the film more than you'd think, too.
I also liked Hustle & Flow.

I wanted to like Syriana but it
was too much for my brain.
We saw it on DVD so we had the option to pause
it and ask each other questions
and try to get some clarity - but it didn't help
- so we just kept watching.
Question: Why did Clooney have to gain
30-40 pounds to play that character?
I kept looking for a reason but I never could
dig one up. That weight gain nearly
killed Clooney (spinal fluid ran out his nose
at one point) so I figured there'd be
a big, compelling reason for it, but if there
was - it was lost on me.
And this always kills me - after getting free, Clooney goes allllllllllllllllllll

I was doing real good, table general and all that, bullying people,

First time that ever happened to me in a non-fixed game.
It's not so bad losing to a Royal Flush.
It's like losing a 'Best Guitar' contest to a Del Castillo brother.
