"In the end, because Steny Hoyer had gone through the leadership ranks, he had a lot
  of chips that he had accumulated.  He had worked for the freshmen.  A lot of people
  owed him favors.  Whereas Jack Murtha simply wanted to run, to run on the issue of Iraq.

  And in the end, a lot of Democrats said tonight they felt that even though Jack Murtha
  might have a slight advantage in negotiating with the White House over Iraq than Hoyer,
  the advantage was not so significant that it was worth pushing aside all of the favors that
  Hoyer had built up, and the fact that Steny Hoyer is much more in line with most Democrats
 when it comes to fiscal policy and social issues.

  And so in the end, it was just a feeling of, We know Hoyer as a leader, we've worked with him
  before as a leader.  Jack Murtha's something of a known unquantity (ph) in this position.
  We'll still have Murtha as the voice of Iraq, but he's just not going to have this position.

America: What to Do Next?
 by Robert Parry

 Excerpt: one of the most encouraging examples of grassroots democracy in decades - citizen-run Internet
sites led the way along with non-traditional TV and radio, from Jon Stewart to Air America and other
progressive radio shows, to pull back the veils of propaganda.  This mix of start-ups, iconoclasts and
unconventional media got enough information to the people so they could finally see through the deceptions.

Meanwhile, the bellicose right-wing media voices - from Rush Limbaugh to Fox News - were exposed
as little more than water carriers for Bush. The day after the elections, Limbaugh admitted as much.
He said he felt "liberated," adding: "I no longer am going to have to carry the water for people who
I don't think deserve having their water carried."

Many mainstream media personalities were unmasked, too, as frauds and cowards. They had stood
meekly aside as Bush's Iraq War parade passed by, or they jumped into line themselves, all the better
to protect and advance their careers.

Note: is the most important site on the internet

 That's the kind of talk I want to hear


Senate Foreign Relations Committee aides debated whether to call Rumsfeld to the hearing table for
a public flogging. The decision was no -- at least for now. Later that day, I bumped into Joe Biden
(D-Powderpuff). He said that while there was "extraordinary malfeasance" born of the Iraq crisis,
he was planning to stay clear of all that. "That's looking backward," he said in typical Demo-surrender mode.

"I'm in the 'bend over for Bush' department." Biden explained, stressing that the key for both chambers
will be 'attaching all investigations to the broadest public purpose.'"

The Democratic Party has show horses and its pit bulls.  Henry Waxman is a classic pit bull.
He has dreamed of subpoenas -- issuing them, and placing witnesses under oath -- for 12 years.
Biden, meanwhile, is a show horse. He's deluded himself into thinking he could be president.
Both must exist within the new congress, and must figure out a way to survive together.

No problem - just kick Biden's surrender-ass and he'll cry and run away.

The Karl Rove crush
  by Eric Boehlert

The article produced real-time cringes, mostly because of the context - it was virtually void of skepticism.
There's nothing wrong with journalists checking in with Republicans and getting their side during the campaign
season. But the tone of the Time piece -- the working assumption that Republicans would naturally find a way
to outsmart Democrats -- was startling considering the circumstances. Meaning, Bush at the time stood as the
most unpopular second-term president in modern history in part because the White House had spent the
previous 18 months careening between a series of political debacles (Katrina, immigration, Iraq).

Bush's presidency was in shambles, yet TIME eagerly passed along the transparent spin about how Republican
chances were "getting better by the day." Those kinds of simplistic campaign talking points worked wonders
with right-wing bloggers and radio talk show hosts who excitedly repeated them as a way to calm their nerves
during the campaign homestretch. But TIME?

 ha ha

 "...but TIME?"

 ha ha

Artie, that you?

Oh, puh-LEEZE!
As though TIME Whore Magazine still had an ounce of dignity?

Some of us are old.
Some of us remember what real news looks like.

TIME double dated on every roofie rape The Old Grey Whore suffered.
TIME should file a victim's report, not a amici curiae on behalf of the defendant.

TIME, like The Old Grey Whore, caught the Stockholm Syndrome, but for money.
Sad, that.

Bart, you wrote:

I've always liked Carville, but why the hell is he going after Dean publicly?
For what purpose?
What does he hope to gain other than smearing Dean?
Why is he giving the Republicans another talking point?

We've known Carville for many years - 15 or so.
Have we seen him take such a drastic step before?

I admit, what JC did seems extreme. 
I'd like to get this settled so we can proceed with rolling the boy.

It presents a bad image to the country to see the Democrats infighting.
It makes them look like idiots, Carville and Dean both.

Maybe, maybe not.
We just voted out 6 years of "whatever you say."
Maybe a little debate isn't entirely a bad thing.

We need a little goddamn unity. Just a little.
And that includes not getting snippy about what strategy works better.
The public doesn't care about this.

I probably agree.

Can't Carville just shut the fuck up and have this out
with Dean behind closed doors, where it belongs?

The Serious Crime of ...Poker
 American Taliban raids "immoral card game"

Jackies was busted tonight. I was there. Dallas SWAT kicking in wall of glass with jackhammers
masks, automatic weapons - the whole nine yards. News cameras waiting as I left with my ticket
asking if I had anything to say for the camera. I said know threw my jacket over my head and 
walked off but I did shout, "Guess it's a lot safer to bust a poker game than to raid something 
dangerous and catch some real criminals.". So sad, so true.


SWAT came out the back door and started waving their M-16s around as they've been known to do
when bringing poker players to justice. Considering that just moments earlier I thought this might be
an armed robbery, I was actually kinda relieved to assume the face-down-on-the-pavement position
and receive my zip-cuffs. As I laid there, one of the cops actually razzed me a bit asking why I wasn't
long gone since they'd had so much trouble with the door. I don't why he was messing with me,
since by my estimation, not a single person escaped.

Not a whole lot of drama after they had us all bound, lined up, searched and ticketed (for "gambling").
Nothing too unreasonable, once the guns were lowered. A&E camera crews weren' there this time.

...but we got those dangerous poker players located and "defeated."

I had no idea Dallas was so crime-free,
that all the cops had to do was bust people who were playing cards.

I'll bet these were "law and order" Republicans who believe in "less government."

Random thought...

What if FDR was a crooked bastard who launched WWII so he could steal billions?

What if Eisenhower, Patton and MacArthur were bumbling fools who intentionally made
the war go longer so they could steal more riches and grab and hold onto more power?

What is Eisenhower, Patton and MacArthur intentionally left 2,000 tons of explosives
unguarded so the bad guys could make the "insurgency" last many more years?

Buh-bye, Fascist dogs

CIA Role Claim in Kennedy Killing
 Republicans will do anything for power - even murder

The report is the result of a three-year investigation by filmmaker Shane O'Sullivan.
He reveals new video and photographs showing three senior CIA operatives at the Ambassador Hotel.

Three of these men have been positively identified as senior officers who worked together
in 1963 at JMWAVE, the CIA's Miami base for its Secret War on Castro.
David Morales was Chief of Operations and once told friends:

"I was in Dallas when we got the son of a bitch and I was in Los Angeles when we got the little bastard."

Gordon Campbell was Chief of Maritime Operations and George Joannides was Chief of Psychological Warfare Operations.

Joannides was called out of retirement in 1978 to act as the CIA liaison to the Congressional investigation
into the JFK assassination. Now, we see him at the Ambassador Hotel the night a second Kennedy is assassinated.

Follow the Money


Now that they'll soon be back in control, congressional Democrats are looking to play a role in shaping 
policy on Iraq. If they want a precedent to follow, there's a good one -- from the Vietnam War era.

In 1969, Congress's ruling Democrats began to offer amendments to funding bills -- often approved with 
Republican votes -- to limit Nixon's military alternatives in Southeast Asia. Although the Hatfield-McGovern 
amendment to cut off money for the war was defeated in August 1970, it accelerated Nixon's steps toward 
Vietnamization of the fighting. And three years later, with withdrawal of U.S. forces having begun, Congress
voted to cut off all funding for "offensive" military action, sealing the deal.

How many ways can I tell a lie?
 An interview with Ed Meese (R-Boy toucher)

"I tough boys..."

Do you think Bush pushed the boundaries on interrogation techniques
that involve sleep deprivation and uncomfortable positionsthat?
I don't know. A lot of this has been classified. There have been a lot of accusations, but I
haven't seen much evidence, (because Bush made the gathering of evidence illegal) so I
really don't know enough to render a judgment.  But my own belief is that Bush is committed
not to engage in anything that we would call torture. They're committed to humane treatment.

It seems like some of these techniques, like waterboarding, are a long way from humane.
Well, again, I have a great deal of confidence that the administration would not engage in torture.

Would you call that torture?
I don't know. I don't know about waterboarding.

It's putting a wet rag over his mouth, making him think he's going to drown.
Yeah, I don't know. As I said, I don't know enough about it to give a firm determination.

That doesn't necessarily sound like torture to you?
I don't know whether they're doing that.

And if they are?
I don't know, because I don't know enough about it.

I'm asking, if that is what they're doing, does that sound like torture?
Well, I'd have to find out how long they do it and whether it does create the impression of drowning.
I've never heard of this using a washcloth in their mouth before.

Hey, let's show this lying SOB what waterboarding is - so he can give us his damn opinion.
He's just lying thru his teeth, because he knows for a fact that Bush is torturing people.

Republicans are all alike - when faced with a simple, direct question, they either lie,
or they change the subject or they answer a different question than the one asked.

They have to do that because facts are their enemies.

 Iraq pumped 3.5M barrels daily before Bush invaded
 and then they got their 2003 Halliburton upgrade

Bush's oil gouge, which is going to $100 a barrel
makes $350,000,000 Bush will steal every day.

No wonder they were so eager to start a war,

stealing  $350,000,000 every day.

It's the biggest theft in Earth's history.

Exxon made $10B profit in 90 days 
 $100M a day - all profit - because Bush started a fake war


Bush's "Bring 'em on" death taunt is up to...

2863....2872 American victims

Bush killed another 9 soldiers last week.

In that week,
Exxon made $700M in profit.

Think The BFEE is ready for this war to end?

Americans than Osama.

The Media's 'Fictional Story Line'
  by Frank Rich

The primary falsehood is that the Democrats' sweep was "more or less an accident. The victory had little 
to do with the Democrats' actual beliefs and was instead solely the result of  Bush's unpopularity and  
cunning by Schumer and Emanuel, to enlist a smattering of 'conservative' candidates to run in red states.... 
And now the party is divided as its old liberals and new conservatives slug it out.

The only problem with this version of events is that it's not true. The overwhelming majority of the winners
are to the left of most Republicans, whether on economic policy or abortion. For all of the hyperventilation 
devoted to the bout for the House leadership, the final count was lopsided next to the one-vote margin in 
the G.O.P. Senate intramural that yielded that paragon of 'unity,' Trent Lott.

Since Oklahoma has turned into a tropical desert, (I blame Bush) I found myself, once again,
cooking Thanksgiving dinner in shorts and a t-shirt on the backyard grill.
I assume Christmas will be the same - it just refuses to cool off.

I'm so old, I remember when temps used to cool some in the winter,
but it never cools off in dusty, tropical Oklahoma.

To make things worse, Eldrick ended up two strokes ahead if Jim Furberger. (sp?)

The Wailing of Whipped Weasels

I started out drinking to protect myself, but suddenly my mood was reversed. I was drinking out of 
pure joyous elation at the spectacle of  Bush having the smirk smacked off him, and the sense that I 
was being unshackled from a six-year walking nightmare. I laughed like an inebriate hyena at the 
banal tableau of Rick Santorum exiting American history. Someone remarked that it was lucky 
Rumsfeld had pissed off the generals, because that ruled out a military coup. I wasn't sure if he 
was joking, and probably neither was he.

Kelly Ripa & Rosie fight
 Clay Aiken put his hands on Ripa


Rosie O'Donnell, always yapping her mouth without thinking, said Tuesday she was 
"offended as a homosexual" after Kelly Ripa made a comment about not knowing 
where Clay Aiken's hand had been during a recent show.

The comment stemmed from an incident when Aiken put his hand over Ripa's mouth 
to prevent her from speaking - on her own damn show!  Ripa pulled his hand away 
and said "That's a no-no. I don't know where that hand has been, Honey."

This has nothing to do with being gay.
Studies show most American men don't wash their hands after using the restroom.

I have an idea!
We should pull men off the street and have them put their hands on Rosie's mouth.

Maybe she'd learn to think before yapping?
