"I'm playing for October-November. To get us

Excerpt: On another long vacation in Crawford, Texas,
Bush treated the Katrina alarms with little more than
cheerleading, praise for and confidence in the
federal, state and local officials on the front lines.
Like many Americans watching on TV, Bush acted
like a spectator expecting whatever damage
did occur would be neatly cleared away and everything
would quickly be put back in order.
But that wasn't how Katrina played out. Instead
the storm brought a national awakening - with
large numbers of Americans finally catching on
to the gap between Bush's rhetoric and reality.
Before Katrina, the mix of Bush's folksy charm,
the lasting emotions from 9/11 and the powerful
right-wing media/political apparatus had kept
most Americans under the President's spell.
On Aug. 30, 2005, the Times-Picayune posted a
story at its Web site saying
"no one can say they didn't see it coming."
"This administration has had remarkable success
creating the perception that the 'surge' is succeeding, even though there's
not a shred of verifiable evidence to suggest that it is."
-- Paul Krugman, Link
It's easy to lie when America's whore press backs you up.
Excerpt: Former (?) GOP senator Larry Craig is reconsidering
his decision to resign after his
Men's Room arrest and may still fight for his
Senate seat, his spokesman said Tuesday.
"It's not such a foregone conclusion anymore,
that the only thing he could do was resign,"
Sidney Smith, Craig's spokesman in Idaho's capital,
told The Whore AP.
"The outcome of the legal case in Minnesota and
the ethics investigation will have an impact
on whether we're able to stay in the fight -
and stay in the Senate," Smith said.
Craig, a repressed homosexual Republican, has
represented ruby-red Idaho for 27 years.
Craig said Saturday that he intends to
resign from the Senate on Sept. 30. But since then,
he's hired a prominent lawyer to investigate
the possibility of reversing his plea, his spokesman said.
Larry - welcome back!
All is forgiven - can I buy you a cup of coffee?
"Presidential candidates announcing on The
Tonight Show? To me, one of the fastest ways to devalue the office
of the presidency is to make it part of the pop culture. I mean, people like Paris Hilton and

in this race,
Thompson is skipping tonight's GOP debate, chosing instead to
go on Leno and yuk it up with him because he can't debate for shit.
Did you know Thompson's tart-trophy wife was running his campaign?
Bart, I stopped reading you regularly a while

That's not a good reason to stop reading.

I read Arthur Silber. I don't agree with everything
he says, and I'm sure you won't either, but you

Sen. Clinton is a fundamentally moral person
I can vote for with even a half-way clear conscience.

Ed, if you like the way things are going under Bush, then don't vote
for the Democrat. Vote for the Fascist or Nader if you like the way things are going.
I googled Arthur Silber and found this quote:
"Both parties fully agree that the militarist-corporatist
state needs war, war and more war."
That makes Silber crazy - you'd be better off reading bartcop.com.
Your choices on the November ballot aren't "Republican" and "Perfection."
Your choices are "more of the same" or "Democrat."
Excerpt: Al Gore couldn't believe his eyes: as the 2000
election heated up, The New York Whore Times,
The Washington Whore Post, and other top
whore news outlets kept going after him, with misquotes
("I invented the Internet"), distortions (that
he lied about being the inspiration for Love Story), and strangely
off-the-mark needling, while whores such as Maureen
Dowd were charmed by the monkey, George W. Bush.
The so-called "liberal media" that were supposed
to love Gore - The New York Whore Times, The Washington
Whore Post, The Boston Whore Globe, Whore CNN
- he was variously described as "repellent," "delusional,"
a vote-rigger, a man who "lies like a rug," "Pinocchio."
Eric Pooley, who covered him for Time magazine, says,
"He brought out the creative-writing student
in so many reporters. Everybody kind of let loose on the guy."
This what happens when you refuse to fight back.
We've seen it the last two presidential elections
and I'm tired of it.
They said Gore paid someone (Naomi Wolf?) $10,000
a month to dress his incompetent ass,
and since Gore never denied the charge or tried
to set the record straight, the lie took hold.
That'll happen every time you allow the
Roves, the Coulters and the Pigboys to define who you are.
Gore refused to "dignify the lies," and look what
it got him.
Kerry refused to "dignify the lies," and look
what it got him.

The thing that you still, after all of these years,
haven't addressed is, why aren't we at War with Iraq?
If the evidence was so compelling, incontrovertable
and unassailable, why didn't anyone do what the
Congress is supposed to do: draft and pass a
declaration of war?
You're asking why congress didn't formally declare
war on Iraq?
I don't know, but I have a feeling it's going
to be Hillary's fault.
Senator Clinton said, in so many words, "You've
convinced me that the US is under imminent threat of being attacked by a rogue regime, but I
don't have the courage to declare war, so you just go ahead and take care of it for me; please?"
You seem to think it was the job of the freshman
senator from New York to declare war - that's puzzling.
It's almost like you're looking for any excuse
to lay this disaster at her feet, instead of those who lied.
There are 535 members of congress - how'd you
single her out for the Inaction Award?
And that is the problem I have with the Senator.
If she's fit to lead, she should have led in
So, you looked past the men who've been leading
both parties for decades and wonder why the new girl didn't step up and
demand the steering wheel?
I must ask again - how'd you single her out for
the Inaction Award?
Inexperienced at her role? Young in politics?
Hardly. She'd been fighting the good fight alongside
the Big Dog for thirty years. She was covering
her ass, along with twenty or so other Democratic
senators (none from Michigan, I'm pleased to

No, it means he wasn't at that point in history

Somehow, Hillary doesn't get the same consideration
from you - why?
Seniority-wise, Hillary was as young as any member

and you've decided to blame her for every lie
Bush told to - somehow - get even?
Excerpt: The latest book published about Der Fuhrer reveals
that he was not fully engaged in key policy areas,
including the disbandment of the Iraqi army and
the build-up to Hurricane Katrina.
Dead Certain: The Presidency of George W
Bush, by Robert Draper, highlights both its subject's
strong convictions and the poor communication
and weak leadership within the administration.
It suggests Mr Bush was unaware the Iraqi army
was to be broken up by Paul Bremer in May 2003,
a decision seen as one of the biggest screw-ups
as it put hundreds of thousands of armed men on the street.
The president told Mr Draper that the policy was
to keep the Iraqi army after Saddam's fall.
For some reason, it "didn't happen", he said.
He can't be bothered with details of his failed quagmire.
Like a spoiled 9 year-old with 20 new toys at Christmas, he gets tired

"If you look at my comments over the past eight
months, it's gone from security situation in the sense that we're either going

months. Isn't that remarkable?'
-- Dubya, awash in victory over his "success" in Iraq,
Apparently Senator Larry Craig is considering
reversing his guilty plea and fighting charges
that he was trying to pick up men the restrooms
for gay sex. But Larry's story just doesn't add up.
For example, I'm 51 years old and been using the
Men's room for a long time. Never in my life
did my foot ever come close to touching the foot
of the guy in the next stall. That just doesn't
naturally happen. Then if Larry has a "wide stance"
- if I had my legs so far apart that my foot
was touching the guy in the next stall, I wouldn't
be able to get my pants down.
As Judge Judy would say, "If is doesn't make sense,
it isn't true."

She has four pool tables, the cutest bartender ever and an Internet
Juke Box that plays everything.
Heck, since finding a place is always the biggest hurdle, she's given
the OK to host
So next time you drive thru Tulsa, drop by Sam's Dixie
Tavern and buy Ol' Bart a shot.
Bart - I respect your opinion. And I hope
you are right.
At this point, I would vote for anything other
than what we have.
Ergo, if Hillary made it, I would still be thrilled.
I do note that you didn't post my points on your
site or respond to any of them.
Are you completely committed to Hillary at this
early stage come hell-or-high-water?
You mention very little about any other candidate,
which made me wonder.
I am committed to the Democratic nominee - at
this point, she seems to have it locked up.
Does anyone doubt she's going to win Iowa?
As far as the other candidates, nobody is attacking
them because they aren't likely to win,
but Hillary is catching it from the left and
the right, thus the defense seems like a lot..
One suggestion: How about using your
platform to also seriously examine the other candidates?
Even if just to educate ourselves or look at
potential VP's on the ticket. Most folks are too lazy
to go about the serious business of examining
who will lead the free world for the next several years.
Consider this the best public service you could
perform. Heck, I would pay for something like that.
Excerpt: It used to be a feature of college Psychology
101 that those who were obsessed with demonizing
homosexuality, or fearful of homosexuals, particularly
men, were almost invariably latent homosexuals
themselves. (The problems the Catholic Church
is currently having in this area is further proof.)
In its most extreme expression, these obsessions
often lead to violence against gays by closeted
gay men such as Larry Craig attempting to cover
up their own homosexuality. Since as a Senator,
Craig was too public to get away with beating
up a gay man to 'prove' he was straight, he instead
indulged in verbal violence against homosexuals.
I forget who first pointed this out, but remember when Ted Haggard
was talking about the "temptation" of being homosexual?
I've never been tempted towards gay sex, so what's Ted talking about?
I think he was trying to face his own gay "demons," praying that God
give him the strength to deny who he really was.
Since there is no God, Haggard was just lying to himself.
If the GOP could stop all the gay-bashing, gay people wouldn't have
to lie to themselves.
They say only about 8-10 percent of men are gay, but that number is
How do you think Craig and Foley and Haggard answered that question?
One other thing: If you're a gay Republican, having gay sex is wrong,
wrong,wrong, so think of the sexual charge they must get from doing what is wrong,
It's so wrong, they must get off like a Roman Candle.
Excerpt: Before he was the leader of the free world, the
"liberator" of Iraq, and the most unpopular president
since Nixon, George W. Bush was just a guy with
terrible clothes trying to win his first election.
In an excerpt from Dead Certain,
Robert Draper recalls the dilettante who would be governor
- and the governor who decided he was ready for
the big time.
"George, you've got no base here. All you've got
is a famous name."
Lee Atwater made some calls to Texas kingmakers
on George W.'s behalf. Among those who believed
he could prevail over Ann Richards was dirty
tricks specialist Karl Rove.
But if Rove was wrong, George W. would end up

Now Bush is known as the Butcher of Baghdad,
the bungling idiot who killed 4,000 soldiers.
I don't doubt this. My anecdotal experience with
the TSA is that they like to steal (and I presume burn) books
they don't agree with. On a trip earlier this
year to Hawaii, I had a copy of Amy Goodman's book:
"Static: Government Liars, Media Cheerleaders,
and the People who Fight Back" in my suitcase.
I was planning on giving it back to my parents
who had lent it to me earlier. When I arrived, the book was
not to be found. No note from the TSA. They usually
leave a note that they rooted around through your stuff
or if they confiscated something dangerous like
baby food. But with this book, there wasn't even a note.
I'd like to think some liberal minded TSA goon
wanted it to read but was too afraid to be seen buying it himself. :)
Bush's overbearing federal government is an out-of-control bunch of
goons who steal what they want.
I'm so old, I remember when the NRA said we all needed guns for when
the feds went crazy.
Now, the feds have gone crazy but the NRA loves
a BIG, intrusive, all-powerful government.
When Bush puts tanks in the street to "calm us down" will the NRA bend
over for that, too?
Funny how they can reverse course on a dime and nobody mentions it.
Excerpt: There is seemingly implacable opposition to her
in the netroots and the left wing of her party, but from
her point of view she does not need the netroots
at all. "This internet phenomenon on the left wing of the
American politics has only been shown to be effective
so far in raising money and in providing
organizational support for candidates, neither
of which she needs." And here's where it gets interesting.
Should Clinton win her party's nomination, and
it is looking like she will more and more each day,
the only thing Clinton will need from the netroots
is additional GOTV efforts and, of course, their votes
- neither of which they will withhold. Why? Because
the netroots need a presidential victory to seal
their status as a serious political movement.
Excerpt: However, with HRC, GOP strategists have a pre-existing
pool of Clinton-hating sentiment to work with.
It's like getting a running start. Does
any GOP voter really know why they hate HC so much?
Of course not, but it doesn't matter. They
hate Clinton the way Mark Foley hates "To Catch a Predator,"
and whoever takes Karl Rove's place is gonna
run with it.

of paper" during the recording of his chat with the police.

Excerpt: A group of Bush administration staffers is gathered
to consider the gravest threat their government
has faced this century: the testing of a nuclear
weapon by Iran.
Bush, no longer prepared to tolerate the risk
that Iranian nuclear weapons will be used against Israel,
or passed to terrorists, has already launched
a bombing campaign to destroy known Iranian nuclear sites,
air bases and air defence sites. Iran has retaliated
by cutting off oil to America and its allies, blockading
the Straits of Hormuz, and sanctioned an uprising
by Shia militias in southern Iraq that has shut down
60 per cent of Iraq's oil exports.
The job of the Bush toadies - they claim - is
to prevent a spike in oil prices that will pitch
the world's economy into a catastrophic spin.
The good news is that this was a war game;
The Bush toadies will bomb Iran specifically to
raise oil prices and steal more money from us.
The Bush bastards can make more money with war, death and misery than
they can with peace.
Why do you think they stole power in the first place - to help the
little guy get his piece of the pie?
"A new book about Bush claims Rove discouraged
him from naming Cheney as his running mate. Rove said, "Selecting Daddy's top foreign-policy
guy ran counter to message. It was worse than a safe pick - it was needy." But, 'Bush didn't
care. He was comfortable with Cheney.'"

Excerpt: ...but when I got to the cinema, for some reason,
my resignation started to crumble.
I bought a ticket to No End in Sight.
One critic of the movie said, "Even well-informed
audiences will find their jaws dropping."
He was right. Comments made by former Bush political
advisors, strategists, and planners were
so alarming, my jaws were dropping. The many
remarks made by the U.S. soldiers made my head jangle.
Hearing former Army Major General Paul Eaton,
responsible for training the New Iraqi Army, recount that
George W. Bush, Commander in Chief, had been,
after the invasion of Baghdad, totally unaware that his
hand-picked official, L. Paul "Jerry" Bremer,
was disbanding the Iraqi Army, was infuriating.

there's not much new in the movie,
but most Americans have no idea what their crooked government has been

Excerpt: The headline read, "Citing Vietnam, Bush Warns
of Carnage if U.S. Leaves Iraq."
Readers with live brain cells must be stunned
by such a warning.
What, exactly, does President Bush imagine is
happening every day in Iraq now? Does he envision
scenes of social tranquility and cooperative
harmony amid the peaceful palms of Mesopotamia?
And what, one wonders, does he suppose was going
on earlier in Vietnam, as the U.S. forces
extended their unwelcome stay year after grisly
Observing the president and listening to his speeches,
one simply doesn't know what to make of him.
Is he actually as detached from reality as he
