"The AP photographer who took that photo says
that Obama clearly turned his shoulder to Hillary when
she approached Kennedy. If this is the type of President you
want, vote for him." -- some dude named Rusty,
Excerpt: Tthere is something truly special about Bush
43. Something so unique, so poisonous and
strange that historians are busy right this minute
rewriting not only their books, but their
entire way of thinking about how we measure and
interpret political malfeasance.
It has to do with matters of scale. It has to
do with audacity, with sheer recklessness,
with BushCo's stunning contempt for all national
and international law and historic precedent
and human decency. It is the sense that, at bare
minimum, the most significant lies told by
previous administrations were, by and large,
not massive, calculated stabs to the very heart
and infrastructure of the entire nation. They
were not designed, as Bush's clearly were,
specifically to pervert the entire American experiment,
to violently shift us from peace
-promoting and defense-oriented protector to
an arrogant, insular, pre-emptive attacker,
widely loathed and mistrusted worldwide.
See, BushCo rewrote the formulas. From WMD to
tax cuts, AmeriCorp to Iraq, Bush
officially reset the bar to an all-time low as
to what's possible for a truly dreadful, inept
president to get away with without some sort
of significant repercussion, impeachment,
numerous lightning bolts raining down on his
soft little monkey skull.
Well BC I've been with you since I lived in DC,
You know, just before Bush's coup d'etat.
I finally this year sent you a membership - YOU
I am sickened by the constant charges of Race
in this campaign, this is a CONTEST
A hard fought Political Contest - THEY
are all fighting to be PRESIDENT
That AIN'T hay and whoever WHOEVER survives will
get my support
And those so called Democrats who Hate Bill and
Hillary are DELUSIONAL
The Republicans and the NEOCONS are the enemy
Tom, Obama has the same problem as the Palestinians.
The status quo does him no good.
Hillary wants to coast right into the White House but Obama needs
a war to shake things up - so far he's been getting what he wants.
The Democrats are helping him, the networks, talk radio, the cable Nazis,
Jon Stewart couldn't hate the Clintons any more if he tried.
Last night on Nightline, Cynthia
McWeightgain pappered Hillary over and over: "Don't
you think Bill went too far? Aren't you ashamed of him? Can blacks ever
forgive you two?"
You know you're in trouble when your crimes are too despicable to mention.
The morning dude on CNN just had multiple orgasms reporting Obama's
He stared into the camera saying, "Wow!" again and again - to drive
home Obama's greatness.
But all that evaporates the second the fresh-faced newcomer gets the
Why are we throwing certain victory away?
It seems everybody hates Hillary but the voters - how can she
govern if she wins?
"Finally some respect for Teddy. If he had
endorsed Hillary we would have heard about him driving his mistress off the bridge,
his drinking, being a playboy, etc. Give the Hillary camp their dues--they tell
the truth--the records prove it. I will be a part of tsunami Tuesday and Hillary will
have my vote. I listen to what the candidate is saying, not what Bush's
whore media tells me they said." -- some dude named Red, Link
Bart, I'm not a big HRC fan, but I get it.
I think Obama offers a new perspective and
a brighter future, but not yet, maybe in another
eight years. Until then, we need a fighter
and someone who isn't afraid to play dirty when
the other guys refuse to play fair.
I'll be voting Democrat come this fall, but I'm
afraid I'll have to do it while holding my nose.
A dead rat on a stick would be better than another
GOP'er. I live in the south, so I'm trying
to figure out which motivator drives some of
the folks stuck in the 1800's more, racism or misogyny.
At least a bunch of us yankees have invaded to
lib up the place a bit. Maybe if we're lucky,
Hillary can help the country clean up the mess
left behind by the Bushits and pave the way in
eight years for president Obama to bring us back
to our former glory.
Or maybe they're all just different heads on the
same ugly hydra and it's time to
move to Canada, we'll just have to see.
I think I want a pony.
How the hell would Kerry know how an "ex" President
is supposed to act?
He caved too quickly to find out what it's like
to be President, let alone an ex-President.
Only the Democrats would gleefully demonize the
only Democrat in my lifetime to win
two terms while being absolutely hated not only
by Republicans, but, as I'm finding out,
by the Democratic "elite".
I think they are so jealous of the Clintons, that
they are willing to cling to
any "hope" they can of stopping them from doing
The general reason Clinton was impeached is he was a friend to blacks
That meant he had to be discredited, no matter what, to stop
progress in America.
The specific reason he had to be taken down is because they are winners.
Democrats tend to punish achievement and that's a bad thing.
"There he is! Senator McCain! You know you're
in my heart. I have to tell you, the President gave your speech tonight. He
talked about we got to cut the number of earmarks in half or I'm going to veto the
bill, he talked about..about the war against terrorism, he talked about reform.
It was he didn't talk about much about the global economic challenge right now. In
fact, he said basically we'll get through this like you do. It was your speech, Senator." --
Chris Matthews, in orgasmic bliss as he straddles Bush and McCain, Link
Excerpt: When Obama arrived, he gave a pitch-perfect stump
speech, surfing the enthusiasm of
the pulsating gym. When he took the stage he
said, "At some point in the evening, a light is
going to shine down and you will have an epiphany
and you'll say, 'I have to vote for Barack.'...
I imagined, seeing him speak in person for the
first time, that I would hear more of a discussion
of policy than I've heard in the coverage of
his campaign. I was sure that the sound bites that
his stump speech produced about unity and change
may pepper his talk, but could not possibly
be the sum total of his message. But, basically,
There was very little sense that he was standing
in North Charleston talking to a specific community of
people. His transcendent talk was just that,
transcendent. It's not that this didn't have a strong effect
on the people who had waited to see him. It did.
But there was something slightly gimmicky about
his presentation. In my notebook, I wrote twice,
'How will he make change?/
This is for the crazies who say, "If I can't
have X," I'll vote GOP."
"I want to find clones of Alito and Roberts.
I worked as hard as anybody to get them confirmed. I've said a thousand
times that I wanted Alito and Roberts. I will appointed judges as close to
Roberts and Alito as possible." -- McCain, Link

"I was turning away because Claire asked me
a question, as Senator Kennedy was reaching for Hillary... And she and I
have had very cordial relations on the floor and off the floor; I waved at her as
we were coming into the Senate chamber before we walked over. I think there's a lot
more tea leaf reading going on here than I think people are suggesting." -- Obama saying his Hillary snub
was not calculated, Link
"This was obviously an awkward day from that
standpoint, and I don't think he wanted to stand there while Kennedy was greeting
her and I think that was an appropriate sentiment. Unfortunately, the
camera caught it in a different way, and so it got interpreted that way and that's
the kind of environment we're in right now. It's a very competitive race, so
every little thing is going to be interpreted in that way- but it was really
a matter of letting Senator Kennedy have his own conversation with her without
him hovering over them." -- David Axelrod, senior Obama advisor,
seemingly saying it was, Link
> "If Teddy had endorsed Hillary, > how many Chappaquiddick jokes would
be on the web this week? "
Yeah the media was tripping over itself over the
past week attempting to
imbue Teddy with new found dignity and respect.They
even referred to him
as "the old lion of the Democratic Party".
It is all painfully suspect.
I personally don't even care for the Clintons,
but I simply can't abide the treatment
they constantly receive at the hands of the American
press which is so addicted to
bashing them that it defies all logic.
What is more suspect is the praise Obama has been
getting from the right-wing.
I mean how stupid do you have to be not to see
through this right-wing con job?
Scott in Canada
Excerpt: In one such colony in Modesto, two obviously
tame cats watched alone from a distance
as a group of feral cats devoured a pile of dry
food Jennings offered.
"These are obviously abandoned cats," Jennings
said. "They're not afraid of people,
and they stay away from the feral cats because
they're ostracized by them."
The abandoned pets are overwhelming animal shelters
and drawing fury from bloggers,
especially as photos of emaciated animals circulate
on the Internet.
The first people to enter an abandoned house,
such as property inspectors and real estate
brokers, have discovered dogs tied to trees in
backyards, cats in garages, and turtles, etc.
No one keeps track of the numbers of abandoned
pets, but anecdotal evidence suggests
that forsaken animals are becoming a problem
wherever foreclosures are climbing.
Stockton and Modesto have some of the nation's
highest foreclosure rates.
Although I live in NC, I see counseling clients
in SC. The Wednesday before the SC primary
a client with autism excitedly wanted me to listen
to the message on his phone. It was a recorded
rant listing the various ways in which Hillary
had supposedly abused people, starting with an FBI
agent on guard detail. Sorry I couldn't make
myself listen closely, but the general refrain was,
"She yelled at an FBI agent. Hillary Clinton.
She doesn't like FBI agents...(blah blah blah)
Hillary Clinton. She doesn't like X.... (blah
blah blah) Hillary Clinton. She doesn't like YOU."
Now I NEVER thought this was done by Obama's people.
I assumed it was a GOP operation
to stir up some shit, making Hillary and Obama
both look bad. I wish people could see this is
what's going on. The Republicans and their whore
news media are like schoolyard bullies
standing to the side and egging on the nerd's
Today it's "Obama snubbed Hillary at the SOU address."
Better than reporting that the state of the union
is "in the weeds."
"Obama won South Carolina. You got to
give it up for the guy. He won despite persistent rumors that I helped spread
that he had fathered a black child, and named that child Reagan. Full name:
Reagan I Love Reagan Obama." -- Stephen Colbert, forced off the Carolina
ballot by Obama,

use this proof of your Obama bashing)
A Bartcop Quote that bashes Obama
> Iowa - A pony
> NH - Four years Demo control of the White
House and congress
> NV - Four years Demo control of the White
House and congress
> SC - A pony
OK, let's take a look at that. I'll tell you what that means,
and I get
to decide because I wrote it and I know what I meant. Here we
I believe Obama voters are letting their
hearts be swept away. People like the fresh-faced newcomer,
but they really can't say why because they don't know much about
him. That concerns me. I would rather gamble on what I know
than what I don't know.
If I'm guilty of bashing there, then lock me up and take me to Gitmo.
Excerpt: Obama returned to stand by his seat next to Teddy

widely watched event that reverberated across
the political world.
"As Clinton approached, Kennedy made sure to make
eye contact and indicated
he wanted to shake her hand. Clinton leaned towards
Kennedy over a row of seats
and Kennedy leaned in towards her. They shook
"Obama stood icily staring at Clinton during this,
then turned his back and stepped
a few feet away. Kennedy may have wanted to make
peace with Clinton but
Obama clearly wanted no part of that.
Obama has said he would meet with the U.S.'s enemies
But making nice with Clinton apparently is another
I agree with Rude Rich. I'm sad to say that
I believe there ain't no way a black male
or a white female are going to be elected President
of the US, at least not this time around.
Even my own daughters who have been raised about
as liberal as can be say Hillary's
"power hungry" and McCain seems like a neat guy!!!
(God help us all!)
Just think - if Gore had been a little more power
hungry, or if Kerry had been...
Only in the Democratic Party do they take away
points for wanting to win.
Our only hope is that we have a veto proof Democratic
But even that concerns me since African-Americans
are being hoodwinked by the media
to think that the Clintons' are racist!!
Give me a break! I can't believe the crap I'm hearing
about the Clintons from the black community.
And, how dare anyone malign John Lewis for supporting
Hillary. He's got more guts
in his little finger than the rest of us could
ever hope to have. And, I'm currently supporting
John Edwards but you damn well better believe
I'll support Hillary Clinton and/or Obama
over any of the Repugs (gag!) I hope to
God I'm wrong but I'm also the guy who thought
there was no way this country would elect a 2

Excerpt: Just like that Gore win in 2000 that they took
back when Welch started bellowing in anger.
"When is a victory not a victory," says
Andrea Mitchell. There she is. She has no teleprompter.
They give Clinton a few minutes, like two or
three max, and then interrupt with commentary.
"Hillary Clinton will not be interrupting you,"
says Olbermann to Scarborough.
Excerpt: In his speech, the President asked Congress for
$300 million for poor kids in the inner city.
There are 15 million children in America living
in poverty, how much is that per child?
The President also demanded that Congress extend
his tax cuts. The cost: $4.3 trillion over ten years.
The big recipients are millionaires. And the
number of millionaires happens, not coincidentally, to equal
the number of poor kids, roughly 15 million of
them. What is the cost of the tax cut per millionaire?
That's right, Richie, $287,000
> "Was Wal Mart expected to ship union bosses
into the state > so they could organize the workers to demand
I hope you aren't trying to defend Wal-Mart
Your hopes are realized.
In 1992, Wal-Mart was smaller than it is today,
but it was still huge, with $43.9 billion
in net sales, 1,714 stores and 371,000 employees.
Even in 1992, Wal-Mart was already
the world's largest retailer. Wal-Mart was rabidly
anti-union, was exploiting sweatshop
labor around the world, discriminating against
women workers, forcing workers to
labor off the clock and destroying communities
that did not want them.
Mike, what we have is failure to communicate on my part.
Follow me here...
Wal-Mart was a little store run by friendly Mr. Sam back in the day.
Then it grew and expanded and they were putting up a store per week
eventually they spread to other states and ran into the unions and
things got ugly.

Bush, and he's a pariah now.
Excerpt: "No matter what happens in Florida's
primary -- where the season's unreliable polls are
predicting an Obama victory --
the Clinton campaign machine will live to fight another day
in many other states. Obama is
not merely running against another senator, or many current
and former elected officials, or
an ex-president, he is running against the deepest and best
-organized Democratic campaign
in years. And when Hillary Clinton says she has the
experience to govern from day one,
there are an inordinate number of public officials who
want to join her on that January
day in 2009, and they are vigorously campaigning for her
in states like South Carolina."
Ok, OK, I relent. I'm over my fit of pique about
If he is nominated I'll support his sorry ass.
Obama's campaign knows full-well what's going
on over at HuffPost with the
relentless personal bashing of the Clintons.
He's using the "she's too divisive" tactic
today and that fits right in with the meme of
the day over there. There's even an article
by a guy named Palermo that slams her for having
the temerity to thank the nearly one
million people that came out for her in Florida.
What a dirtbag, imagine thanking folks for getting
off their dead asses and
going to the polls and voting? Man, that Hillary
really wants to win...yeah well, duh?
Good stuff on your page, man.
I like your down-the-middle fastballs at the
Obama camp, lately.
If they would only quit whining and argue his
positions you could
straighten them out in short order.
Excerpt: "Who would want to be President?" That's the
comment I've heard recently, whenever I've
discussed the race with my friends. Noting the
mess Bush has made, they say, "The next
President will have to spend four years working
24 hours per day repairing the wreckage."
The damage begins with Iraq, where the Bush Administration
has fractured that country beyond repair.
But it's not only Iraq that's been demolished;
it's the entirety of Bush's ill-conceived "war" on terror.
It's painfully obvious to everyone, except the
residents of the White House, that we made a disastrous
mistake when we abandoned Osama and invaded Iraq.
Therefore, the next President will have to send
more American troops to Afghanistan and Pakistan.
The "war" on terror will continue, in a different form,
as will many of the financial expenditures.
These two issues may have been some of the best
work and logic you've done.
Your points on the media and the candidates could
not lose in a debate.
So many on our side go out of their way to say
how much they despise the Clinton's.
If it's Obama they will rip his guts out eat
it raw and ask for more.
In the end I think it's less than 50-50 there
will be a Dem in the big house.
I agree - looks like our suicidal tendencies have
won the day.
And how they turn on you for refusing to understand
it is an opinion, a way to
open up dialog and ideas. Rather than that they
attack instead. I'm at a loss.
Thank you for your efforts to inform and educate
and the many laughs!
