Thompson courts his base
 by Richard Fricker

Timothy Griffin, the Karl Rove protégé at the center of the federal prosecutor scandal, is negotiating
for a senior position on Fred Thompson's campaign, another sign that the actor and former senator
is positioning himself as the reddest of red-meat candidates appealing to the right-wing base.

A litmus test among devoted followers of George W. Bush remains an instinctive rejection of all scandals
considered important by liberals, from the deceptive intelligence behind the Iraq War to the torture of
terror suspects to the exposure of CIA officer Valerie Plame to the politicization of the U.S. Attorneys.

If the liberals think it's a scandal, Bush's followers know the talking points from Fox News,
Rush Limbaugh and other right-wing media outlets explaining why it isn't.

This could be trouble for us.
If Thompson becomes the darling of the BFEE, he'll have those stolen billions working for him
because a Demo president and Demo congress could mean investigations for all the Bush crimes.
Now that they've raped Iraq and stolen the US Treasury, they've got to cover their tracks.

Putin 1 - Halliburton 0

Vladimir Putin must be good at chess. At the G8 summit on Thursday, Putin diffused a potential new Cold War
by suggesting that the US Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) system would be acceptable to Moscow if it were
built by Russians and located in Azerbaijan. This was political genius. The whole world watched Putin
come out of the summit looking magnanimous and compromising. He appeared to show the kind of leadership
that is necessary to deal with the major problems of our time. In reality, Putin wiped the floor with Bush
while giving the finger to the US Military Industrial complex.

In case you missed it, here is the back story....

Subject: the GOP's front runner

This is my first email to bartcop even though I have been reading for a couple of years.  Great site.

It seems to me unless Giuliani made some sort of a deal to keep quiet about 9-11 with a promise
of the presidency, I don't see any other way that this "man" is in any way competent to be our next president.

 I know our morals have slipped off of the radar as far as Bush and Co. but, come-on,
even the moral base of Republicans is going to be swayed by him?

This smells like a great grand set-up of the first order and the sooner this word gets out, and spread, the better.

As I said, I have been reading you a while and I know what is being said now on your post
as well as others about 9-11 that was not being said previously.

With his amoral credentials, I say the fix is in.
Keep up the good work,

It will be interesting to watch the GOP sell their soul for power.
Will they vote for the baby-killing cross-dresser to remain in the White House?
Will they elect a gay-loving gun grabber - just to maintain control?

Will the NRA roll over and accept Rudy?
Or will Rudy flip-flop on guns, too?

"Karl Rove promised to transform the American political scene for a generation.
The latest poll contains some shockers.  Rove's magic worked - for the Democrats.
54% of all Americans now call themselves "Democrats," against 36% "Republicans."
The Democrats have a powerful ally and his name is Karl Rove."

Condi spews on 2 troops in Iraq

While on a surprise visit to Iraq, Condi Rice sat down with troops to have lunch and was handed a MRE
by a troop sitting next to her. With a surprised look on her face, she inquired about what had happened to
the lunch tat she had brought with her which reportedly was specially prepared by the White House Chef.

"Oh my god" Sleazy exclaimed as she tore open the Beef Mac pack. Plastic spoon in hand, she scooped out
the contents and took a bite. She gagged, then swallowed, then vomitted on the troop sitting next to her.
Quickly standing she apologized, then turned and once again vomitted on another troop.

admits that the military is as quagmired as ever. Rep. William Jefferson pleads not guilty to bribery.
But don't worry about that. In fact, stop everything you are doing and turn on the television. Paris Hilton
is about to do a perp-drive back to the courthouse...The news is so big that CNN International, the serious
show on CNN, interrupted its programming for a live shot of nothing happening outside Hilton's home.

Bart, just got done listening to show 119.

A little harsh on The Sopranos.  Some writer in USA Today saw it my way which went something like:
"Tony survived because, as stupid as he was, those around him were a whole lot stupider."

I think you were imaginining that Tony was supposed to be smart, like in "The Godfather."
No, I think his crew were a lot more akin to Jimmy Breslin's incomparably funny "Gang That Couldn't
Shoot Straight".  Both Chase's and and Jimmy's guys seem a lot closer to the real characters I have
known and worked with.  Stupid but dangerous.

Now.  That "moongrabber" metaphor you came up with was brilliant, and brilliantly executed.
You had me going "right on, mother-effer!" the whole time.

Kathy Griffin's one funny lady, I agree.

All in all, good show.
Keep up the good work and I might try to find another bottle of Chinaco for you.

"Last night, the 10 Republican candidates had their third presidential debate.
They said there is nothing that they would not do to win and fight this war [on screen: 
GOPers unanimously opposing openly gay soldiers]. ... Apparently, the only thing worse 
for these candidates than another terrorist attack would be a gay hero stopping it. ... 
I don't want to say anything, but there are 10 candidates on that stage and the law 
of averages says one of these guys is a little ...Barney in the Franks."

Bart, long time no read. Nice to see things haven't changed much in the old treehouse.
You're still full of piss and vineger I see. I think I'll start making daily stops again.

Anyways here's the ridiculous answer to part of your big question from 6/8.
Good to read you again ..

How about:

We have elections with the candidates we have, not the one's we wish we had

Mark, they don't want to hear that.

Authentic? Never Mind


Consider the case of Fred Thompson. He spent 18 years working as a highly paid lobbyist, wore
well-tailored suits and drove a black Lincoln Continental. When he ran for the Senate, however,
his campaign reinvented him as a good old boy: it leased a used red pickup truck for him to drive,
dressed up in jeans and a work shirt, with a can of Red Man chewing tobacco on the front seat.

But Mr. Thompson's strength, says Lanny Davis in The Hill, is that he's "authentic."

(Lanny Davis, always wanting to be fair with the Fascist bastards)

Oh, and as a candidate George W. Bush was praised as being more authentic than Al Gore.
As late as November 2005, MSNBC's chief political correspondent declared that Mr. Bush's
authenticity was his remaining source of strength. But now The A.P. says that Mr. Bush's lack
of credibility is the reason his would-be successors need to seem, yes, authentic.

So with the terrorists just waiting for a good chance for another 911,
is that what you want in the White House, a coward?

I had to think about this one, but you may not like the answer.
I think we'll see the real Hillary after she takes the oath.
Until then, she knows she's the most scritunized woman on the planet
now that the Paris Hilton threat has been thrown behind bars.

She's got to be super-careful about every word that leaves her mouth.
She's also reaching out to the other side, ("My religious faith...") to get elected.
She's smart enough to know Bart's Law #1 is true.

No other Democrat is in her position, so you have half a point there.

Dennis Miller tells the truth about Bush

18 seconds long

Bush's credibility


Bush waxed eloquent about democracy in Prague's majestic Czernin Palace last week, pledging to the 
assembled dissidents from 17 countries that the United States "will never excuse your oppressors" and, 
"We will always stand for your freedom."   It was the centerpiece speech of his European tour. But Bush's
scorecard shows him striking out, according to analysts and activists who originally endorsed his efforts. 
Democracy regression is visible from Chavez's Venezuela, a country that was the first democracy in Latin 
America, to Russia, where the Soviet demise triggered political changes worldwide 15 years ago.

Cannibals On The Right


Peggy Noonan wrote that "This White House thinks its base is stupid."

Sen. Lindsey Graham went in for a hot wing of Right. "We're gonna tell the bigots to shut up."

Rush Limbaugh already tired of "carrying water" for the Pubs, said it's gotten "rough defending the President."

Noonan again: "The great shortcoming of this White House is simple wisdom."

Keeping us Scared

H. L. Mencken said, "The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence
clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."

The latest alleged evil plot "busted" by the FBI was announced to great fanfare this past weekend:
Crazed towelheads were going to blow up JFK Airport and half of New York and New Jersey as well.
Whew! Thank goodness the G-men are looking out for us!

Or are they? The NYWT reports that the suspects were "longer on evil intent than on operational capability."
In other words, they wanted to wreak havoc with jet fuel but probably couldn't even light a gas grill.

Subject: what point?

Bart, at what point do you stop voting Democratic?

Good question - I can think of two answers:
When voting for them doesn't slow down the Fascist stampede
When my vote can make an impact for a better alternative.
    I'm certainly not going to vote for Nader and have those murdering GOP thugs
    grab the White House and congress and the judges and the military by 5,000 votes.

When the only difference between the Ds and Rs is whether they lock suspected political
criminals in a dark cell for 30 years (D) or immediately execute them (R), will you still vote
for the Ds? This is where we're heading as both parties keep lurching to the right.

If we elect a Democrat and give him/her a filibuster-proof congress, I think the 2009
America will look a lot better than the dark, bloody Amerikka of the Bush Error.
The country will conitnue moving to the right as long as the thugs want to win more than we do.

I will further ask -- why should I vote for someone I don't support, when doing so will simply
perpetuate the policies that are killing millions per year (toxins in our air, water, homes and food)
and give aid and comfort to those who are destroying the capacity of this planet to support life?

I think you just said there's no difference between, say, Al Gore and Der Fascist Monkey.
You can't really think that - did someone brainwash you? :)

The invisible cloud kingdom is filled with people who believe that voting for a Democratic
Congress and a Democratic President will end the war for control over middle eastern oil.
- Erik,

We don't need their stinking oil.
I say we tell the Arabs to eat and drink and drive their oil - and good luck with that sand, too.

You've heard "Necessity is the Mother of Invention?"
If gas went to $10 a gallon, we'd turn Green in 5 years.
The problem is, every time gas shoots up, people sell their SUVs and buy a Honda.
Then gas gets cheap sop they sell the Honda and buy an SUV.

Once we tell the Arabs, "Suck on that," we can drill in Oklahoma and Texas until we get
convert over to electric cars.  Electric cars (golf carts) work just fine for short trips.
Once there are 30M electric cars on the road, they'll be battery exhange station every
twenty miles on the interstate and our gasoline problems are over.

Let's get rid of the Oil Administration

According to  when Clinton took office gas was $1.05
When Clinton left office gas was $1.45
That's an increase of  5 cents a year.

Today in Los Angeles, gas is $3.45
That's an increase of  33 cents a year and it's going nowhere but up from there.

As far as politics are concerned, the greater majority of the Christian right are Southern Baptists,
and a bigger pack of rabid God-loons you'll never find.  They believe in the literate truth of the Bible,
that there can be no error in the Bible, and that if you find an error, the fault is yours, not the Bible's.

Bart,  John McCain may not have called Kosovo "Clinton's war,"

How does Bush sleep?

What a hideous combination of conceits Bush has. He has the ego that drives him to want to be the top man.
He has the arrogance to think that he his qualified. But he has the laziness that makes him not want to actually do the job.
He has the insecurity that makes him want to cover up his faults. He has the smallness of character that will not concede
his weaknesses and seek out help. He has the hubris to think that he could cover up all this, run the world into the ground
and think that people won't notice. How has the world fallen into the grasp of this tiny, tiny man?

George W. Bush is the perfect storm of character flaws.
Not only does he bring all of these horrible traits together at once, but he does at the worst possible time in the worst
possible position. The president of the United States of America has to be the most competent person on earth.
And somehow the exact opposite has snuck in to that role.

Let's pick the most competent person next time for this position.

Subject: Hillary

Hi Bart,

The same idiotic Repugs who impeached Bill are now using the same tactic against Hillary.
They said they hated Bill because he can't keep his hands off of women.
BS. They hate him because he's Bill Clinton...and likewise...they hate Hillary for being Hillary.

I know this makes no sense. Their irrational hatred of the Clintons makes no sense.
I've not seen one viable argument as to why Hillary should not be president.
I hear vague crap like "she's power hungry..."cold and calculating"...and their favorite,
"she voted for the war and won't apologize."

I think it all comes down to people having issues with a woman as president.
Scratch them deep enough and you'll find they think she should be home baking cookies.
If Hillary can get the job done and America back on track...she'll have my vote every time.
 Charles A

I think you nailed it exactly.

Some people make up their mind, facts be damned, and they can't argue their position
or answer the simplest of questions because if they do, their irrationality is exposed.

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

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

No wonder they were so eager to start a war,

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...

3,504....3512 American dead

I'm REAL tired of this war.
When can we change the channel?


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.

I'm bummed for a lot of reasons about the end of "The Sopranos." I'll miss Tony's invincible life force, 
and Meadow's fight to make a clean life, and Paulie's utter lack of self-insight, and Dr. Melfi's half-sexy, 
half-unnerving voice. I'll miss the Bada Bing and Satriale's and that great opening sequence, the drive through 
stratified class layers until we arrive at Tony's vulgar McMansion. I'll even miss poor little A.J., who recently 
discovered the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. But mostly, I'll miss the show's absolute and perverse amorality. 
In the age of Bush, how am I going to survive without my weekly double shot of ethical ambiguity?"
