Excerpt: A couple of days ago, a group called Citizens
filed papers with the IRS
as a "527" organization. Roger Stone signed
on as the group's "assistant treasurer." Uh oh.
Note: Roger goes by "Dick Stone" when he advertises for
strangers to screw his wife in Washington DC sex magazines.
Stone, regular TPM readers know, is a Republican
operative who prides himself as something
of an elder statesman of GOP dirty tricks. He
worked for Reagan's campaigns, Dole's presidential
campaign, two of Arlen Specter's campaigns, among
others. James Baker tapped him to lead
street protests in Florida to shut down the recount
in 2000. Most recently, he was hired by
New York Republicans for their battle with Gov.
Elliot Spitzer (D), a gig that exploded when
he was accused of making a threatening phone
call to Spitzer's 83 year-old father (Stone denied it).
So what's Stone up to? Fortunately, he laid the
whole scheme out to The Weekly Standard.
"Bush issued hundreds of false statements about
Iraq. How come Bill Clinton isn't getting angry
about this, instead of unloading on an African-American Democratic
ha ha What?
Bill spent the last seven years cozying
up to the Bushes and acting "Presidential Emeritus"-- Mr. Above-the-Fray,

take on the primaries, Link
When did the Iraq war become
Bill Clinton's fight?
He's not unloading on "an
African-American," he's campaigning with
in a Democratic primary. Why
in the world would anyone bring race into this?
When the time is right, the
Clintons will kick Republican ass - who denies that?
He hasn't spent "seven years
cozying up" to anybody. There was a big tsunami
where hundreds of thousaands of people died,
and he and Poppy Bush tried to help.
I wonder if the Clintons knew the shit they would get
from their fellow Democrats
for helping people in those dirt-poor nations try to get
back on their feet?
Just curious, what did Obama
do to help those dirt-poor people? Give a speech?
Why is this writer SO SHOCKED
that Bill is helping his wife campaign?
And what would they be saying if he WASN'T helping her?
The writer wants to know "Does
this make any sense?" Well of course is does.
Why is Michelle campaigning with her husband?
Because that's what spouses do?
Sure, just like Pickles campaigned for Der Monkey.
Where's the shock?

Thanks for all the good work and debunking the

I recently attended a sort of ecumenical meeting
between Christians, Muslims and "others,"
which I guess is why I was there. For the Xtians,
there was a self-made Baptist.
He spoke sweet words, very engaging stuff, but
throughout his talk of a "loving god
who gave his son," etc... there was a second
soundtrack running about burning in hell
if you didn't believe 100%... And that is the
Baptist message, and remember, both R
eagan and This Monkey are bornagainers.
These people are as fake as their liturgy, which
is near moronic. When you hear a
Baptist preacher or politician, remember the
180 degree rule: It's always the opposite.
The god of love is the god of hate, compassionate
means punishing, honesty means lying,
peace means war, life is death. Blessed are the
meek means long live the superrich.
Hillary has eight years in the White House (as
the wife of the president).
Since I have been married to my wife for 25 years
and for the last 18 years
she has been a nurse; using your reasoning I
am qualified to be a nurse.
So if you would please roll over I will give you
your injection now.
Mark, that's cute but flawed.
If you watch a hospital's ER team work 18 hours
a day for 8 years,
you probably couldn't pass the nurse's exam but
you'd be damn valuable
if a terror attack sent 2000 severely injured
people to the ER - don't you think?
It would've made a lot more sense for Obama to
watch and learn for, say,
eight years before he decided he was THE MOST
qualified man in America
to be president - but maybe his ego got in the
way of his common sense.
Excerpt: Obama angered fellow Democrats in the Illinois
Senate when he voted to strip
millions of dollars from a child welfare office

party. Who could not love him?
And he is, of course, my senator from Illinois.
Things are not going as I expected, still, I've not
abandoned all hope. His wife has said that
if this year is not to be his, she doesn't want to go
through it again in four years.
That's a great reason for him to have waited "his

But I'm afraid there are still too many knuckle-dragging
misogynistic males who would not vote for
a woman, even if it were Mother Theresa.
Trust me. I know too many of them myself.

would be John Edwards, but he's not
getting much action. Anyway, I'm not young

Just think - if every poor-but-eligible voter went for the same candidate,
he or she would win by 4-to-1, so why don't they use that power?

doesn't even register with the poorest people that he working for the
Why do the poorest Americans vote for the super-rich to have more?
Because the Democrats have failed to educated the ignorant people.
In the primary season I can understand if the
different campaigns and supporters
going after each other, but this Obama cheerleading
is gone to a point of insanity.
Take Ed Schultz - Ed had Paul Begala on his show
today and all Ed was doing is
trying to spin Obama comments regarding Reagan
and the GOP and his voting record
stance on Iraq. Excuse me Ed, if
Obama portrays himself as the anti war candidate
and his voting record doesn't reflect that (something
Obama supporters don't want to talk about)
that's not dishonesty on Bill Clinton's part.
And I'm very suspicious when right wing pundits
praise Obama, I remember how these same
pundits went after John Kerry. As lame as John
Kerry was, they still went after him like he was
the next Joseph Stalin. Yet Obama is OK
in their book, yet people want to by pass that.
I'm a black male and I have doubts about Obama's
chances due to recent history during
the 2006 election here in Michigan there was
something called Prop 2 and what Prop 2 did
was to ban affirmative action and it passed overwhelming.
I also remember Harold Ford in
Tennessee - the only reason Bob Cocker beat Ford
he appeal to the racists in that state.
So with those two instances happening not that
long ago I have doubts they're going to
be a long line of people willingly to vote for
a black man to be their leader.
You might be onto something - I can see the GOP saying, "Of
course it's time for America to have a Black president - if the Democrats
have the courage to look forward."
But you're right about Tennessee - and Oklahoma, Alabama, Mississippi,
Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Kentucky, Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Indiana
and the Carolinas.
> Of the three, doesn't Edwards have the best
message? > That we need to take power back from the
Yes, yes, and more yes. If you recognize
why are you so preoccupied with Hillary?
Are you voting or betting?
I want to win, and for whatever reasons, Democrats
refuse to vote for Edwards.
They also refuse to vote for Kucinich, Dodd,
Biden, Richardson and Gravel.
My fantasy, and it probably is a fantasy, is that
Hillary and Obama exhaust each other in a
suburban cockfight, and as the cloud of feathers
subsides, John Edwards steps forth and is
embraced for his fairly clear understanding of
what ails America (haves and have nots) and
how to fix it. All it would take is a few
vocal individuals with some influence and reach to
take off the horse race blinders and hammer home
his virtues, like yourself, for instance.
You could convert dozens.

When I ran for the California legislature in the
late 90s, at one Democratic meeting,
a very friendly one, I made a comment about Reagan's
impressive political talents
and instincts. Afterwards, one of the members
of the audience pointed out that you
never speak well of Reagan in front of Democrats.
We both chalked it up to me being really green.
I never did it again.
I would expect Obama, now running for president,
to already know this basic point.
That reminds me of another point:
If Obama can't handle the Clintons "distorting what he said," isn't
that more proof
that he has no idea what the GOP slime machine will do to him?
Is Michelle Obama ready to be photoshopped having sex with animals
and bin Laden and every other monster the GOP bastards can think of?

Excerpt: Prior to Clinton's arrival in Washington, D.
C., it was no small secret that there were an
unusually large number of people "in the know"
who suddenly died of suspicious circumstances.
Personal bodyguards, security personnel and even
financial associates who had prior careers in
the military or in law enforcement and had since
worked for Clinton when he was the governor
of Arkansas, had "car accidents" and committed
"suicide" in ever-increasing numbers.
These people knew too much about the drug deals
and financial dealings at the Rose Law Firm
where Hillary Clinton was a partner. Even two
young boys who witnessed the Mena, Arkansas,
drug shipments arriving by train were murdered,
in order to protect these dark secrets.

I heartily second the appraisal of Reagan's years.
It is un-questioned that his penchant for 'privatizing'
EVERY possible function of government
led directly to the lobbyist dominated, prostituted
lawmaking bodies, corrupt mess that permeates
our national government to this day...and it
shows no real sign of getting better.
For sheer hypocrisy, there is no match for the
fact that Reagan was elected by be-littling Carter
and blaming Carter's 'deficit government financing'
for high-inflation, high un-employment,
high interest rates, etc., etc., and then embarking
on GOP-sponsored spending that increased
the $900-BILLIONS national debt he inherited
from Carter to over $3.5-TRILLIONS by 1989.
I have a match for sheer hypocrisy: Reagan ran on "When I'm president, you won't have to worry about
another hostage crisis," implying that he was some wild-ass cowboy who would nuke them all,
like John Wayne.
But then the bastards made a secret deal with Islamic Jihad
to KEEP OUR HOSTAGES
longer, until Carter was out of office and he repaid them for that
with Stinger Missles.
And they named an aircraft carrier after this traitor?
Carter's "mistake" was caring about those hostages enough to keep them
