"It's nice that Hillary's campaign is now using
the most vicious of right-wing talking points to not only demonize Obama, but demonize
a good portion of the Democratic party as well. You'd think the dynasty that brought
us "Monica..." -- John
How can you tell when it's all about the hate?
When they bring up Monica.
Excerpt: Right-leaning pundits for months now have very
openly not just called for Hillary Clinton's head,
but also coddled and promoted Obama, salivating
over the prospect of facing him in November.
Obama has been beating Hillary Clinton in part
because Republicans are helping him.
As often as some of them have declared that Clinton
is the most beatable Democrat, their own
agenda suggested otherwise. Republicans
are collectively so confident of beating the black guy in November that they became his
unofficial advance team.
I cringe each time I hear the Republican lie, "We
to face Hillary in November." Why else would Rush, Will, Kristol, Hannity, Dowd, etc praise
a black guy?
Do you think they're sincere in their praise for Obama?
Do you think the GOP suddenly became non-racist?
"If you believe that we've got to heal America
and we've got to repair our standing in the world, then
I think my supporters believe that I am the messenger who can deliver that
message." -- Obama, October 18, 2007,
Barack, can I ask a question?
Are you going to heal America the way you healed the Democratic
Excerpt: In the past days, Carlyle Capital admitted it
had received "substantial additional margin calls and
additional default notices from its lenders".
It said lenders are selling off securities held as collateral.
Margin calls are demanded when a creditor questions
the ability of the borrower to repay.
Carlyle had leveraged $670 million in equity by
an alarmingly high 32 times to finance a $21.7 billion
portfolio of highly rated mortgage-backed securities
issued by Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.
To finance the deals it entered into repurchase
agreements with banks where it posted the mortgage
securities as collateral in exchange for cash.
If the value of the security held as collateral falls, the lender
has the right to ask for more collateral - a
margin call - to secure the loan.
If the borrower does not meet the margin call
by putting up more collateral, the lender may sell the security. .
Looks like Bush might have bankrupted his Daddy's piggy bank.
"Besides, the real softness of his campaign
is not that Obama is a wimp. It's that he has never explained how
this new politics would actually produce bread-and-butter benefits to people
in places like Youngstown and Altoona. If he can't explain that, he's going
to lose at some point anyway. n

First of all, thank you for answering my e-mail
of earlier this week.
Your blog is the least hysterical and
most fact-intensive of all the many available to me.
Having said that, what's up with the frenzy and
gnashing of teeth on just about all of the
purportedly "progressive" sites? Geraldine
Ferraro, having remained pretty much below the radar
of so many people, is suddenly the bitch from
hell and the Antichrist, according to almost everyone.
I guess I didn't get the memo: with all
due respect, is Obama that fragile and vulnerable to defeat
that his supporters, and so many other people,
must shield him from her words? Say you don't like
what she said, but, PLEASE: remember the
war, and the thousands of dead and wounded?
The people of Iraq, dying from lack of medical
care (here, too), the thousands of foreclosures
and unemployed Americans, and our poor, battered
I'm feeling disheartened. Why is this happening?

Five years ago Monday, me & Mrs Bart went
whale watching off San Diego.
We had a great time - saw a bunch of whales.
Mrs Bart was worried about
getting seasick, but she should've been more
worried about the sun.
The next day she was sequestered in an Oceanside
Motel 6 with sunburn.
She'd sent me to the drug store to buy lotions and creams to make her

...have not only gone Obamamaniacal, but they
have spewed so much vitriol and hate
toward Hillary as to make me sick to my stomach.
I might as well read Politico or
National Review because it has made me feel like
an outsider in my own party.
None of them will get a penny more from me.
And if they are wrong,
and the lollipop gets taken away a third time
and we lose the election,
I'll be sending out a series of "WTF were you
And, where are the media?
All these months gone by and I still don't know
a damn thing
about Obama except that he can give a good speech.
Excerpt: Now that Obama is waiting in the
wings, I find that once again I am barracking for Hillary.
The turnaround began upon reading
about how deeply she is loathed by some Americans.
This is not the ordinary hate people
feel for politicians they don't like. The hatred Americans feel
for Hillary is of a different order.
Pollsters have remarked that it is unusually deep-seated and personal.
Men and women will say, for instance,
that they hate Hillary's hair, her lined skin, her eyes. They hate
what she wears. They hate how she
is always right. It's crazy-making sexism in action here.
Google "hate Hillary Clinton".
Richard Cohen says that more than 30 books have been written
about her, many of them "vituperative
and ugly". "They have questioned Hillary's honesty, sexuality,
parenting, wifing and just about
everything else Hillary has come to personify all that is wrong with Bill, the Democrats, liberals,
working women, independent women and women of a certain kind - which is any woman you
don't like. No man could possibly match her in that department."
I can't believe that I don't listen to Randi Rhodes
anymore, or watch Keith Olbermann.
They were my two favorite people to listen to,
next to you, Bart :-).
They trash Hillary constantly, and I can't take
I agree - they spew the nastiest, personal crap
and who would want to hear that?
Randy says Bill wants her to lose so he'll
always have one up on her.
Once again, they read the Clintons's minds
and reveal their innermost thoughts.
Meanwhile, I haven't slurred anybody, at least
Why are people so crazy over the Clintons, when
the Bushes are evil incarnate?
It's a form on insanity we've never witnessed
Hillary hate makes the Israeli-Palestinian thing
look like friends arguing.
You have only ever asked legitimate and much needed
questions of Obama's
capacity to be president. Also you have
pointed out where his supporters have
gone overboard in their reactions to any question
of his suitability.
They really must beleive that Hillary is the worst
they are going to face.
These guys forget what was done to both Gore
The Rethug slime machine is being oiled as we
getting ready to smear B 'Hussein' O like never
Come November we won't be sure that Obama has
a first or a last name, Just Hussein.
I hope Hillary is not his VP, hope she refuses
if offered. She being his running mate
would only give the right-wing media reason to
ratchet up the smearing campaign.
critics are starting to make waves about his relationships with lobbyists
with a European company, by charging that the
results cost Americans jobs..
European Aeronautic Defense and Space Co. and
Northop Grumman Corp. were
awarded a $35 billion Pentagon contract last
month to build new AirForce tankers,
instead of Boeing Co., which is formally challenging
Boeing's complaint asks the GAO to make sure the
EADS contract is fair. McCain
pushed for EADS to get the contract, and his
campaign employs three former EADS
lobbyists, although there is no specific evidence
of impropriety, according to ABC.
"Mr. Clean has a bunch of lobbyists that work
for a company that won that contract,"
Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., told Whore ABC. "Some people
claim the way the specs were
written, it was all but certain that the company
that his campaign lobbyists worked for
got that contract."
Excerpt: But just because what Ferraro said was wrong
doesn't mean that the reaction to it
hasn't been over the top -- it has.
Tuesday night, Keith Olbermann said, "It seems
remarkable to me that a campaign being run in the
21st century or even the second half of the 20th
century would allow itself to be associated in any kind
of way and not step back ... Does it not have
disaster written all over it, or are we living in South Africa?"
(Wednesday night, he followed up with one of
his trademark "Special Comment" segments.)
unlike some, claim to be a mind reader. Still, I have
that at least some of the South Africans who
lived through apartheid -- not to mention some of those who
died as a result of it -- might tell Olbermann
that the comparison was perhaps a tad hyperbolic.
And suggestions that the Clinton campaign -- even
the candidate herself -- had some role
in Ferraro's remarks seem to some degree illogical.
"Bush has misled Americans on intelligence-gathering
and antiterrorism operations. It will be up to the next president
to restore the rule of law." -- NY Whore Times editorial,
You sons of bitches have lied for Bush, you've whored for Bush,
you've helped him cover up his crimes, and now you say he's misled

"Of course it's true - even the New
York Times says so."
New York Times, you are a whore newspaper.
New York Times, you helped Bush and Cheney do this:
Excerpt: While results from many states have suggested
that Obama's candidacy might really be transcending
old voting patterns, there is no such suggestion
to be found in the results from this corner of the deep south.
Among African Americans, Obama won a striking
90-10 margin. Among the white, Clinton won 74-21
Among the 37 percent of the electorate identified
as white protestants, Clinton's margin went to 76-18.
Among white over 60 -- one-fifth of the primary
electorate, Clinton was favored 82-16.
These numbers point to a continuing, very real
and very serious racial divide in the old Confederacy.
The divide in Mississippi is similar to the one
seen in the neighboring state of Alabama on February 5.
The exit poll data provides little support for
the argument that nominating Obama
would get Democrats back in the game in the Republican-leaning
south this fall.
Here's another small donation to show my appreciation
for what you do in these difficult times.
I'm not much of a Clinton supporter, but I'm not
going to take my ball and go home crying
just because I don't always agree with what you
say that being said, I hope some of your
readers who claim to have abandoned you will
regain their sanity soon.
I eagerly await the time that you can spend more
of your time hammering the rethuglicans
as they so richly deserve instead of having to
defend yourself and the candidate you support
from lies and/or distortions.
