"Barack's camp accuses Bill Clinton of being
the junkyard dog. And we can't have that, because everybody knows
that if Obama gets the nomination, the Republicans won't be mean. They'll

Gee, it's almost like the whore press is lying about the Clintons.

Excerpt: Over the past few months, as the Democratic presidential
race has heated up,
we have received a number of complaints about
critical stories we have written
about Barack Obama and, especially, Hillary Clinton.
Sen. Clinton, who insists that she will be "ready
on Day One," wasn't ready on
that day in October 2002 when President Bush
demanded a blank check to
invade Iraq. She did what many other aspiring
Democratic presidential hopefuls did; she tested the political
winds and voted yes.
It's amazing how Bob can read the minds
of other people.
He's giving us the Bob Parry Guarantee
that Hillary took this decision lightly.
He's giving us the Bob Parry Guarantee
that Hillary "tested the political winds" before she cast her I-don't-care-about-the-troops
Let's assume that Hillary didn't personally share
this secret with Bob.
Bob says this IS what she was thinking at the
time - for sure. So, either Bob Parry made that shit up, OR
he's a mind reader - for sure.
He didn't say "maybe." He didn't say"It
that..." He didn't say "apparently..." He didn't say "insiders
No, Bob Parry goes inside Hillary's
mind to get the real scoop.
If I had time to read books, I'd
order these books just to reward her honesty.

"...a light will shine thru that
window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an
epiphany ...and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote
for Obama..." -- Barack Obama, January 7, 2008,
according to... Link
Excerpt: One of Hillary's congressional black supporters
intends to vote for Obama at DemoCon2008,
Rep John Lewis is openly discussing a possible
Rep. David Scott's defection and Rep. John Lewis'
remarks highlight one of the challenges
confronting Clinton in a campaign that has turned
into a race war to even things up.
"I want to go with a winner, and I'm getting lots
of calls," Scott said in at the Capitol.
"My proper position would be to vote the wishes
of my constituents. I don't know
why I've been acting improperly for months -
I guess I'm kinda confused," he whined.
Lewis, whose district voted 3-to-1 for Obama,
said he is not quite ready to abandon his
backing for Hillary. But associates say he has
become torn about his endorsement of Clinton.
Why did Lewis give his support if it was conditioned
on Hillary winning?
Oh, we're Democrats - I forgot.
Note to Barack: See? Like I told you - be careful - and trust
They'll turn on you in a heartbeat.
"McCain is attacking Obama -
why? Maybe McCain's goal is not to hurt Obama in the general
election but to hurt him in the primary? Every poll now shows Obama performing

I'm so sick of the "she voted to go to War" Obamaniax
It was nice to see a hero of the left sum it
up so succinctly.
Now if only Rhandi Rhodes, and people like her,
would accept those facts
instead of misrepresenting the facts to get their
candidate the nod.
You should post a link to that article everyday
on your website until
we no longer here the idiot charge that she supported
the invasion of Iraq.
If they were smart they'd introduce some joint
bills together to end the war
and improve things overall based on their similar
parties to unite their
supporters before this thing gets real ugly.
What makes it worse is they make it sounds like Bush and congress and
the American people all wanted peace, but Hillary said
so here we are.
She voted with 77 other senators, including Edwards, Kerry and Biden.
If Obama had been in the senate, he might've voted with the majority,
Still can't get an answer of why Kerry got a pass on his "war vote,"
but not Hillary, so I'm going to assume I'm right.
As you know, I've been giving the fresh-faced
newcomer some advice,
little tidbits that a newbie might not know -
because I'm starting to like the guy :)
Barack, dude - those
Bush bastards ALWAYS go after the wife.
You need to be prepared for that.
They don't have the balls to come at you, directly.
They'll go after Michelle in an effort to cause
turmoil at home.
The pressure of the campaign will be enormous,
and at the end of the day when
you retire to savor a little quality time with
the family, those Bush bastards will
find ways to get at her to disrupt any peaceful;
time you might use to reflect.
So watch those Bush bastards.
They have the ethics of a jackal who just chewed
off his paw to get free.
you win the nomination, and find yourself jammed up in some jackpot,
contact Ol' Bart and I'll throw a few good suggestions
and one-liners your way.

I can't get 'American Idiot' by Green Day out
of my head.
The primary coverage has become the Brittany/Lindsay/Paris
shiny, spinning lure of the winter.
Even the left wing websites and Olbermann have
been focusing on HC v BO, leaving the BFEE
news below the fold. While the left debates
whether the first Black President''s comments were
racist, the administration continues to pave
the way for martial law (there was a freaky email to

important stuff. I rarely listen to Randi these days,

at Huffington and Buzzflash, I stopped TIVOing Olbermann...
I only have Bartcop, Malloy and HinesSight (thanks
for the tip from your reader).
That leads me to a possible solution for your
dilemma. Declare the truce and take a hiatus
from the primary crap. Only report the
results like the media used to do. Be the one and only
source for entertaining coverage of all the other
shenanigans that are going on while everyone else
has their panties in a bunch about the race.
You stop the bleeding on your readers you have and
you keep the truth seekers happy by continuing
to expose the BFEE. (You got a couple of good
mentions on Malloy last week).
I hope you keep on swinging, but I wouldn't blame
you for stepping aside for a while.

spread the smears. The ugly hasn't begun yet
for Obama in the media. and I can feel it start

delivery system to inject slime and false narratives
into the main stream media. Drudge will post
a smear, Limbaugh will pick it up instantly and
talk about it incessantly - Mark Haperin will
pass it around to the Villagers - FOX will do
specials on it and Wolf Blitzer when interviewing
- will gives us the old "some people say" or
"your critics have said" routine and validate that smear.
