Excerpt: She's ahead in the polls and on course to become
the Democrats' presidential candidate for 2008.
So it is no surprise that a right-wing smear
campaign is gathering speed to derail Hillary's bid for
the White House. Conservative groups and political
figures are planning a film, books and a
concerted media campaign to demonise Clinton,
who is already one of the most polarising figures
in American politics.
Top of the list if a film that aims to delve into
past Clinton scandals, such as Whitewaters, and to
dig up new dirt. 'This project aims to expose
the truth about her conflicts in the past and her
liberal plot for the future,' said a statement
on the film's website.
It's been a long time since we've seen Team Clinton play ball.
During impeachment, the Clintons couldn't say much, so they were forced
to rely on
their terminally retarded Democratic friends and allies, but this time
they're free to fight back.
Maybe you younger kids don't remember 1992 and 1996.
The Clintons laid the framework and drew the blueprints for Democratic
victory, but the Dems
were too stupid, too scared and too disinterested in winning to use
the playbook in 2000 and 2004.
HA HA, I'm laughing my ass off, with the
49.95 for my high speed access plus the cost of a cold
30 pack of bud light, there's no way I'm going
to pay for the kind of drivel most internet blogs spew.
I'm amazed that anybody does. Can you imagine
if knuckledraggers had to pay for Hannity or Limbaugh?
But that's the point - the right is drowning
Rich Republicans throw a million to this web
site and a million to that web site.
Rich Democrats seem to have other priorities
and the rank and file are broke.
The right would be just as wayward as the left.
Typical lefty sentiment though; make 'em pay.
Liberals never could figure out how to get advertisers
so the audience could get what it needed for free.
Excerpt: Obama has been trying to beef up his image for
months but the buzz is still about his beefcake side.
The Democrat who's so afraid of looking like
a pretty boy is once more drawing attention for his more superficial charms.
At his first news conference after he announced
last February, Obama chastised reporters for writing about
how good he looked in a swimsuit, and he defended
hiring oppo-researchers, saying that it was "essential to
democracy" to compare and contrast the candidates
on the issues.
So why would his aides send two sneering memos
about the Clintons' finances to reporters this week,
on a not-for-attribution condition?
Excerpt: He cried. Then he lied.
You remember Tim. Karl Rove's right hand (right
claw?) man. The GOP's ragin' cagin' man.
Griffin is the Rove-bot exposed by our BBC Newsnight
investigations team as the man who gathered
and sent out the infamous 'caging' lists to Republican
state chairmen during the 2004 election.
Caging lists, BBC discovered, were used secretly
as a basis to challenge the right to vote of thousands
of citizens - including the homeless, students
and soldiers sent overseas. The day after BBC broadcast
that the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee,
John Conyers, sought our evidence on Griffin, Tim resigned
his post as US Attorney for Arkansas. That job
was a little gift from Karl Rove who made room for his
man Griffin by demanding the firing of US prosecutor
Last week, our cameras captured Griffin, all teary-eyed,
in his humiliating kiss-off speech delivered
in Little Rock at the University of Arkansas
where he moaned that, "public service isn't worth it."
This is why Homeland Security staged that fake JFK bombing story in
This is the story they had to prevent from making headlines.
"When there were no weapons of mass destruction
in Iraq, Bush immediately seized on the idea of bringing freedom and democracy.
How's that workin' out for you, Mr. President? The United States also pressured the Palestinians
to hold elections.They elected Hamas, a terrorist organization. How's that workin'
out for you, Mr. President? Hamas has now seized Gaza. The Abbas government has been
dismantled and Hamas militants have been on a rampage, pillaging government institutions." --

I think one element missing in the great Hillary
debate is: don't we want a candidate
who will not wimp out at the first possible opportunity
in the face of obvious voter fraud?
Obama's youth might just mean he'd be willing
to lie down like Kerry and Gore
(that timidity invalidates the latter's potential
candidacy) to fight another day.
No way would Hillary take that shit.
Wes in Yogyakarta, Indonesia
I think Hillary is a fighter but that's an expensive opinion.
Bart, I am a retired Firefighter/Medic after
devoting almost 35 years to that great profession.
I think Denis Leary brings out so much which
happens with people being individuals with all the
individual problems and pleasures, and then becoming
a team of togetherness when an alarm sounds.
Most programs regarding firefighting and rescue
and medics don't include the every day lives both
in and out of the firehouse.
No other profession is like firefighting and "Rescue
Me" brings out so much of that lifestyle.

Thanks for being a voice for us.
Curtis, 35 years of running into fires?
That deserves a shot of Chinaco for sure.
Excerpt: A senior Justice Department official who helped
carry out the dismissals of federal prosecutors
said Friday he is resigning. Mike Elston, chief
of staff to Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty,
is the fifth Justice official to leave after
being linked to the dismissals of the prosecutors.
Elston was accused of threatening at least four
of the eight fired U.S. attorneys to keep quiet about their ousters.
John Conyers (D-Hero) said the resignation raises
a red flag for investigators.
"When yet another significant player resigns
in the U.S. attorney scandal, it only deepens the mystery of who
targeted U.S. attorneys for firing, why they
did it, and what exactly is going on in the highest reaches of the
Justice Department and who is filling the vacuum
of leadership that has developed there," said Conyers.
Thanks for your defense of PH, I'm really tired
of all of the piling on.
What if the whore media held W to the same standard
as they do for Paris?
That Friday when they threw her back in jail?
FOX News was going on and on about "This is what
happens when you're brought up with priviledge and never
have to pay for your mistakes," without the slightest hint of irony that Bush's upbringing certainly
played a role in
his decision to start a war so he could steal everything he wants.
Excerpt: You would have thought Libby had been ordered
to Guantanamo, so intense was the reaction from his cheerleaders.
They flooded the judge's chambers with letters
of support for their comrade and took to the airwaves in a campaign
to "free Scooter." Cheney issued a statement
praising Libby as "a man...of personal integrity" -- without even a hint
of irony about their collusion to browbeat the
CIA into mangling intelligence about Iraq in order to justify the invasion.
"A patriot, a dedicated public servant, a strong
family man, and a tireless, honorable, selfless human being," said
Rumsfeld - the very same Rumsfeld who had claimed
to know the whereabouts of weapons of mass destruction
and who boasted of "bulletproof" evidence linking
Saddam to 9/11.
"The idea of trying to blame Clinton is just
wrong for many, many reasons, not the least of which is I don't think
he deserves it."
-- Rudy Giuliani, nine months ago, before he was a candidateLink
America needs leadership to remain on offense.
We can fall back easily into what the Democrats are talking about. It sounds
very appealing, you know? Don't react, let things go, kind of act the
way Clinton did in the '90s."
-- Rudy Giuliani, 06/12/07, now that's he's a candidate,Link
"Something has gone wrong with the democratic
process when you can get idiots rising to offices of extreme power
like the presidency of the United States of America. George Bush - you could not make a
worse choice in someone to lead the most powerful nation in the free world." --
Waters in the latest Rolling Stone
"Forty years ago I left some guys on the battlefield
in Vietnam who lost their lives following 2nd Lt. Pace. And I promised myself
then that I will serve this country until I was no longer needed - that it's not my decision.
I need to be told that I'm done. I've been told I'm done."
-- Marine Gen. Peter Pace,Link
Excerpt: More than 130 years of government propaganda
has hidden this fact from the American people by
creating a Mythical Lincoln that never existed.
Take, for instance, the fact that everyone supposedly
knows - that Lincoln was an abolitionist. This
would be a surprise to the preeminent Lincoln scholar,
Pulitzer prize-winning Lincoln biographer David
Donald, who in his 1961 book, Lincoln Reconsidered,
wrote that "Lincoln was not an abolitionist."
And he wasn't. He was glad to accept on behalf of the
Republican Party any votes from abolitionists,
but real abolitionists despised him. William Lloyd Garrison,
the most prominent of all abolitionists, concluded
that Lincoln "had not a drop of anti-slavery blood in his veins."
You mean the last good Republican was a phoney, too?
"Obviously, I've seen the Internet stuff about
caging. First of all, the allegations that are on the Internet and are completely and
absolutely false and ridiculous. This is all made up and faux pas."
-- Karl Rove-protege Tim Griffin, explaining why he resigned, Link
Yeah, we always resign when the allegations
of wrongdoing are false.
Excerpt: The only thing Angel Cabrera couldn't conquer
at this U.S. Open was Oakmont.
That was much tougher than Tiger Woo
Cabrera hit all the right shots at the right time
Sunday, none bigger than a booming tee shot
down the middle of the 18th fairway that stopped
a late slide, allowed him to post a 1-under 69
and forced Woods and Jim Furyk to catch him.
For the second straight major, Woods couldn't
buy a birdie.
Excerpt: After half a century underground, there are plenty
of questions Friday night about Tulsa's buried Belvedere.
What does it look like after 50 years? Is it
rusty? Will it start? Did all the artifacts turn to dust?
After 50 years of waiting, the '57 Plymouth Belvedere's
protective coatings were peeled off.
Time and water took its toll on the car buried
underground in downtown Tulsa.
During its 50 years underground, water leaked
into the vault, and years of rust covered the car.
Back in 1957, organizers put a glass jug of gas
in the car just in case fossil fuels were history.
The gas survived, but the tank it was meant to
fill up didn't.
Tulsa is an oil town.
Back in 1957, they thought we'd be powering our cars with something
We should be, but BIG OIL is making $75,000 a minute - why should they
The rusty Plymouth story strikes me as kind of
a metaphor for America.
The contents of the time capsule, representing,
in the eyes of those who created it,
examples of excellence from the apex of American
industry and culture.
They were proud of those things, and of their
country, and their culture.
All these years, as the contents have been secretly
corroding away in the ground,
the government, the heart and soul of America
has suffered a similar same fate.
These cancers were hidden from the world,
and all this time everyone believed
that those things they held dear were still as
shiny and uncorrupted as before.

Excerpt: Kim Mayorga was confused when her 2-year-old
started making funny faces and pushing away
the apple juice he had ordered at Applebee's.
The explanation came when she opened the lid of
the sippy cup and was hit by the smell of tequila
and Triple Sec. The restaurant staff accidentally
gave Julian Mayorga a margarita Monday. He grew
drowsy and started vomiting a few hours later
and was rushed to the hospital.
Excerpt: Attorney Robert F. Bauer, counsel for the Obama
campaign, comes out with what he calls a
"progressive case for a Libby pardon." In a nutshell,
Bauer's blog at the Huffington Post illustrates
why Democrats running for office should not recycle
'Democratic' advisors left over from 'centrist'
losing campaigns. Bauer worked for Bill Bradley,
one of the authors of the so-called 'tax reform'
of the Eighties that began the mighty work of
shifting our national tax burden from the wealthy and
corporations to the middle class.
The important point here is that Bauer's silly
machiavellianism - that a Libby pardon will get Bush
into more trouble and therefore we should want
it - is ethically wrong.
Excerpt: Security forces in Baghdad have full control
in only 40 percent of the city five months into the surge,
a top American general said Saturday as U.S.
troops began an offensive against two al-Qaida
strongholds on the capital's southern outskirts.
The military, meanwhile, reported that paratroopers
had found the ID cards of two missing U.S. soldiers
at an al-Qaida safe house 100 miles north of
where they were captured last month, but there
was no sign of the men. The house contained
computers, video equipment and
