Rejecting Reality in Iraq
 by Robert Parry

Bush and his advisers have put ideology and wishful thinking ahead of rationality and realism. 
This tendency explains why so many pieces of evidence cited to support the Iraq invasion have 
proven false and why so many claims of progress have proven overly optimistic.

There always was a cockiness among Bush and his Republican allies that they could bend American 
perceptions of reality by putting out their message aggressively and shouting down any dissenting voices.

Given the potent right-wing news media - and the timid and complicit mainstream press - the neocon 
strategy of flooding the process with alarming pseudo-information worked wonders in 2002, convincing 
many Americans that there was a desperate need to invade Iraq.

It turned out, however, that Bush's power to impose his will on adversaries faded the farther away 
he got from the booming voices of Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly.

Third-party bid could shake up '08 race
  It's their turn to split the vote


In an unpredictable 2008 presidential race, the prospect of a viable third-party candidacy
-- particularly a self-financed bid by billionaire Michael Bloomberg -- could be the biggest wild card of all.

Reports that Bloomberg, New York's Republican mayor, is willing to spend a big chunk of his personal fortune
-- perhaps as much as $1 billion -- on a White House run set off a new round of speculation about his intentions
and his possible impact on the November 2008 election.

The speculation was egged on by Sen. Chuck Hagel a conservative Republican and Iraq war opponent who also is
considering an independent bid and had dinner with Bloomberg recently.  Hagel openly hinted about joining the mayor
on a high-octane, third-party ticket that could reshape the political landscape and jolt the traditional U.S. two-party system.

"It's a great country to think about -- a New York boy and a Nebraska boy to be teamed up leading this nation,"
Hagel said earlier this week on CBS.

Can I get an "Amen!" for the split GOP vote?

And since Hagel and Bloomberg aren't "Christian conservatives,"
how about a THIRD GOP ticket to splinter them apart even further?

They brought this on themselves with their blind Monkey worship.

...and no, Ralph, this isn't a signal to you.

First, I want to send you a delayed thanks for the bumperstickers. 
It's been a treat listening to your archived shows and I think your 'new' shows are terrific.
I think the shorter more frequent shows are working out great

Of all of the radio bits, I think the story of the cat and the cure had me laughing so hard I nearly peed my pants.  
Regarding the best rants, you do so many great ones, I'm not sure which was my favorite.  I'd have to say 
anything covering the newscasters and their conservative/whore bias is excellent. 

Thanks for all you do.

Carter calls out Crawford Cowboy
 by Alan Bisbort


So they sent out Tony Fratto to make their statement.
Are you kidding me?! Tony Fratto?! What is this, Godfather VI?

The lapdog press, of course, framed it just as the White House wanted: 
"In a biting rebuke, the White House on Sunday dismissed Carter as 
'increasingly irrelevant' after his harsh criticism of President Bush."

Carter backs up, says he didn't mean it
 Just when you thought he was showing some sac...


<Big Al Gore sigh...>

Just once, can't we say something truthful and not apologize for it?

"The Republicans were the ones who politicized oversight. When Clinton was president, 
  there wasn't an accusation too small for them to rush out and hold hearings. When Bush 
  became president, there wasn't a scandal too large for them to ignore." 
   --  Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), chairman of the House committee on oversight, 
       reminding the bastards of the over 1,000 subpoenas they issued Clinton,   Link

 Henry's a fighter.
 I'll bet he wonders how he got in a party of sacless whiners...

Subject: Bloggers are replacing network news

Network news channels like ABC and CBS are wondering why they losing to war on news to the bloggers.
They can't understand why their market share is dropping. Maybe it's because they don't know what news is.

For example ABC and CBS have yet to report the power struggle between Gonzales and then Attorney General
John Ashcroft over the warrantless domestic wiretapping, Acting Attorney General James Comey testified before
Congress that he prevented Gonzales from pressuring Ashcroft in his hospital bed from reauthorizing Bush's illegal
wiretapping. This is news that is all over the blogs but is being ignored by ABC and CBS.

People like me are turning to the bloggers for real news and leaving the network news to those
who are more interested in celebrity gossip than what is happening in the world.

Immigration Inflation
 Anti-immigration Conservatives and Greed

Though they constantly say they loathe illegal immigration, the GOP has happily turned the other way 
while their corporate buddies exploit illegals for profit. But, with an election on the horizon the situation 
has snowballed into something ugly, and they're being forced to do something not-eactly-hawkish about it. 
Could the neocons have avoided this mess?

I think so. I think the GOP's habitual refusal to address the federally mandated minimum wage, along with 
the greed that drove their constituents to nurture illegal immigration, has brought the right wing to this.

Study says 'She's the One'

Clinton shows she can win.   At this point, Clinton clearly shows that she can win the states 
that matter for the Democrats. And that is one of the most important things in the primary; 
to vote for someone that can win the general election. 

...but I also saw a headline, "Hillary falls to third in Iowa."

Subject: you hacked up my e-mail

WTF!?  You fabricate an argument with points not even made to avoid publishing the point you cannot refute.

Hillary knew.  You know this ruins your argument.
What, you did not think I would catch your trick....
god, I wish I could warn others about what you are up to with this kind of thing.

You have GOT to be getting a wee amount from Hillary's war chest.
No longer any f-ing doubt.

No, she's giving all her e-money to, and I'm not getting a penny,
which is really stupid of Her, don't you think?

Off the top of my head, I'd say only Arianna has been mocking her more than Kos, but lately,
Kos seems to be fully on the Hillary team since she spent those big bucks on his site.

Don't quote my e-mail header if you are not going to quote my e-mail and the point I made.

There was an error on my part.
I wondered why I only had a header and two links, but no text.
I remember reading your e-mail, but it got erased, somehow.

BTW, there's nothing I need to hide from.
I don't need tricks to justify anything.
I don't have to hide from the facts.
Facts are my friends - we're on the same side, me & the facts.

I went back to previous issue to find if I missed the original.  Nope.
Good christ you're a loser.

That may be true, but this was an accident.
Even "the great Bartcop" make a mistake now and then.
If the future when you send something, could you throttle back on the use of the "F" word?
I took the time to delete your vulgarisms this time, and I'm a busy man.

I will be posting about this on Democracy Underground.

Oh please, not that!
What if I paid you to keep quiet?

Subject: BCR Shows 116/117

Hey, Bart!

Just doing a little catching up on the radio shows!  Man, that beat down of dead-beat DelGiorno is a riot.  
I've listened to it about six or seven times just to savor every last well-deserved invective.  I think you forgot 
to use my favorite word for people like Mike DelGiorno - Hypocrite.  That one word alone better sums up 
what almost everyone on the Right is all about: "Do As I Say, Not  As I Do."  

The funny thing is, you could have taken any sound bite from any right-winger, drop it in place of 
DelGiorno's audio, leave your comments in place - and your entire rant would still make perfect sense.

Show 117 with the details of your Dallas road trip was a nice balance and compliment to the Show 116.   
Your Visa story, although upsetting for a variety of reasons, was ultimately hilarious.  Who hasn't been
through a situation like the one you described.  I think we've all had to deal with low-level, empty-headed 
automatons at a credit card company at some point.  Too funny. 

Keep up the great work.  Your website continues to be funny, informative, and the best 
political commentary on the web  (for those of us with an IQ of 64).

"There's a lot of speculation about what happened and what didn't happen; 
  I'm not going to talk about it. It's a very sensitive program."  
     -- Dubya, on Gonzales torturing Ashcroft on his sickbed to break the law,   Link 

"Excuse me, it's not speculation. It is the sworn testimony of the man you appointed as the 
second-ranking law-enforcement officer in the land. And while the program may be sensitive,
the question wasn't about the inner workings of attempts to spy on terrorists. It was about 
whether the attempt by Gonzales and Andy Card to get the ailing Ashcroft to sign from his 
sickbed was proper. Bush chose to dodge the question instead."

Why I hate Barry Bonds
  by liar, thief, whore and fraud George Will


In a few games in 1969, the "Miracle Mets" had an all-Mobile outfield. Five Hall of Famers were raised here
-- Satchel Paige, Willie McCovey, Ozzie Smith, Billy Williams and Hank Aaron. As Barry Bonds continues
his gimpy, joyless pursuit of such glory as he is eligible for, consider the odyssey of Mobile's greatest native son.

George Will likes baseball and he'll suck anything with "GOP" written on it.

I'm so old, I remember 1998.
George Will wrote 30 columns a week on how Clinton's immorality was destroying the country,
how this was a nation conceived under the rule of law, and no president was above the law when
it came to the details of his horsing around with the young thong flasher with presidential kneepads..

Now, Bush has screwed America to death in every way imaginable, and George Will, political whore,
thinks it's important we all think about baseball instead of the shitty mess HIS HERO made of America.

3500 dead, maybe 60,000 amputees, Bush staying the course and George f-ing Will wants to
scream at the black man for violating some invisible handjob baseball rule that was never on the books.

Why don't the Democrats point to bastards
like George Will to show what liars they are?

George Will KNOWS that Clinton's sex life didn't matter,
and George Will KNOWS that Bush's oil hardon has killed 3500 soldiers and maimed 60,000 more,
but he's a dirty, lousy, scumbag, douchebag Republican whore for hire, like they all are, so he says,

"Baseball is more important than the dying soldiers!"
  Nevermind what the president is doing!
  We need to stand behind George Bush - right or wrong,
  no matter how many thousands of military familes are destroyed,
  no matter how many hundreds of billions this bloody quagmire is costing us,
  the president is our leader and our duty is to stand behind him..."

...and the Democrats remain silent on Will's overt hypocrisy
so he gets away with this shit year after year after year after f-ing year.

How gutless and sacless can a majority party be?

Sometimes, I think *I* could do a better job...

Red State Update on Paris Hilton

The more you hate her, the more you'll love this.

Subject: Hillary and the others

Hi Bart,

I just wanted to say that Obama came to Atlanta for a FREE rally. Edwards came to Atlanta for FREE 
to speak at our annual JJ Dinner (which is a democratic fundraiser but he shook "regular" people's hands for free).  

Hillary comes the following weekend and charges $75-1000 for a fundraiser. 
Howard Dean comes to Atlanta the same weekend and they charge $1000 for a visit with the man.  

How can a normal everyday people ever hope to meet the candidates they are going to vote for?  
I'm beginning to believe the polls are influenced by the media hype! What do you think?
You're the best Bart!
 Joann L.

Joann, how does Obama raise money with free rallies?
As you know, I like Obama, but experience tells us what to expect.

If he wins the nomination, the Nazi hate machine will ask,
"Can we trust America's survival to an unqualified negro named Hussein?"

It's a shame that politics has become what it has become.

Random thought...

Wild idea, probably won't work, but you don't know until you ask...

We gotta burn (or sell) some FF miles so how about Tequilafest San Fransisco?
Who wants to host a tons-of-fun Poker/Fine Tequila party?
Hell, we could meet at Tommy's and sort everything out :)

We were in San Fransisco right after 9-11, but that was the Humboldt trip,
and we kinda got lost in the tall trees and we never got to see much of The City.

Or, we could fly to Dallas and try to track down those elusive Mexican restaurants
but the airfare is free so we might as well fly somewhere exciting, right?

So who's got a big house, or a club house we can rent for a night?

Fear of Eating 
 by Paul Krugman


Yesterday I did something risky: I ate a salad.

These are anxious days at the lunch table. For all you know, there may be E. coli on your spinach, 
salmonella in your peanut butter and melamine in your pet's food and, because it was in the feed, 
in your chicken sandwich.

Who's responsible for the new fear of eating? Some blame globalization; some blame food-producing
corporations; some blame the Bush administration. But I blame Milton Friedman.

The Mussolini of Manhattan

With the Bush presidency in a free-fall and Republicans scrambling to find a candidate with as little connection 
as possible to the White House, cross-dressing Giuliani is back at center stage. Despised in New York as a 
lame-duck mayor through much of his second term, Giuliani today is leading in opinion polls among contenders 
for the Fascist nomination.  In 2001, Time Whore magazine declared him its "Person of the Year," and he became 
known as "America's mayor." He projected an image of a tough but compassionate leader who would unite 
New Yorkers and "heal the wounds" of a traumatized city."

But he made the trains run on time so he wasn't hung upside down.

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

Bush is stealing $220,000,000 every day.

No wonder they were so eager to start a war,

stealing  $220,000,000 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...

3,409....3,422 American victims

13 more families destroyed by Bush greed since last issue.
14 if you count the families of the kidnapped.

...and how much did BIG OIL make yesterday?
Exxon makes $108M - every day

Bush can live with that,
because Iraq's oil wells have no meters
and his front company is moving to Dubai.


 $100M a day,
$200M a day,
$300M a day - where's that money going?

Bush has killed more Americans than Osama.

Michael Moore's "Sicko"
  by Nat Parry


Moore said: "Bush's Treasury Secretary, Henry Paulson, launched an investigation of a trip I took to Cuba
to film scenes for the movie. These scenes involve a group of 9/11 rescue workers who are suffering from 
illnesses obtained from working at Ground Zero. They have received little or no help with their health care 
from the government. I do not want to give away what actually happens in the movie because I don't want 
to spoil it for you (although I'm sure you'll hear much about it after it unspools Saturday). Plus, our lawyers 
have advised me to say little at this point, as the film goes somewhere far scarier than "Cuba." Rest assured 
of one thing: no laws were broken. All I've done is violate the modern-day rule of journalism that says, 
"ask no questions of those in power or your luncheon privileges will be revoked."
