Excerpt: Is it possible to win the Democratic nomination
in such a way as to make winning not worth it?
The Obama campaign thinks so. It thinks Hillary's
campaign is willing to take any road to the
White House, including the low road. "They
would do anything to win, and that means anything," David Axelrod, Obama's chief strategist, said
as tho he just sort of wanted to win. "There is a frenetic energy around them to commandeer
this election in any way they can,"
whereas we aren't really trying our best to
win, we're just coasting along.
Why do people say such nutty-ass things?
And why don't people laugh out loud when they
hear that crap?
From Axelrod's point of view, the Clinton campaign
keeps trying to change the rules.
Another Obama senior aide told me he believed
Clinton was willing to "destroy the party" just as long as she ends up with the nomination."all
Isn't there some rule about it takes two people to fight?
Let me get this straight: If neither side backs down, the party is destroyed, ...and
that's Hillary's fault?
Why is it up to her to step down, instead of him?
The score is 49-47 as we start the fourth quarter.
Simply put, both sides will allow the party to be destroyed if the other
doesn't step down,
so why are they (and the we-love-you-Obama media) making such a nutty
Obvious Truth: Both sides want to win.
Both sides will do anything to win.
The media's Obama-is-good and Hillary-is-bad schtick is wearing
Are the writers still on strike?
Is that why this crap sounds so stale and lifeless?
"The Chicago Tribune editorial board has exonerated
Obama 100% regarding his involvement in the so-called Rezko
scandal. Who'd have ever imagined that sitting down and candidly telling the
truth could get you out of a pickle?" -- John Aravosis, so in love that
he's fabricating "facts." Link
They did no such thing and the "candidly telling the truth" was
he had been hiding the bigger story - and the full story still
hasn't come out.
To quote the Tribune:
In a 90-minute interview with Tribune reporters
and editors, Obama disclosed that Rezko had raised more for Obama's earlier
political campaigns than previously known, gathering as much as $250,000 for the first
three offices he sought.
Rezko's trial has just started.
Maybe John Aravosis has a time machine, and knows how the trial is
going to end?
"What they're doing is a 'boycott.' But whatever
they call it, I think it's great. It's a big Internet, so I hope they
find what they're looking for."

stand the hate

Excerpt: More than half of voters are less likely to support
Obama for president after hearing the anti-American
rants of his pastor, a shocking poll revealed
yesterday. The Rasmussen Reports survey found that
Wright's controversial comments made 56 percent
of voters, including 44 percent of Democrats,
less inclined to vote for Obama...Two-thirds
of the 1,200 people polled said they knew of Wright's
statements, which have been broadcast repeatedly
on media outlets over the past several days.
"The House Republican brand is so bad right
now that if it were a dog food, they'd take it off the shelf. You have a very unhappy electorate,
which is no surprise, with oil at $110 a barrel, stocks down a few thousand points, a war in Iraq with
no end in sight and a president who is still very, very unpopular. He's just killed the Republican brand." -- Rep. Thomas M. Davis III (R-Va.),
When was the last time you heard a Republican
tell the truth?
"If you dig into the report in depth, I think
you may find that there was an extensive relationship with terrorist groups,
that Saddame was a state sponsor of terror." -- Cheney, saying his Pentagon
report is lying, Link
Excerpt: We were all wrong about Obama's exotic past.
The same folks who once whispered that
B. Hussein Obama was a mole for radical Islam
are now decrying his links to an even more
anti-American cult: the United Church of Christ.
And it wasn't Honolulu, or Jakarta, or Nairobi
that put Obama in touch with folks supposedly
bent on undermining heartland values. It was the
heartland's biggest city: the South Side of Chicago,
where Obama launched his political career.
The South Side is responsible for the black nationalist
preachers and violent radicals-turned-professors
whose sound bites and rap sheets have now mired
Obama in the worst patch of his presidential campaign.
But without them Obama wouldn't have had a seat
in the state Senate, much less a shot at the White House.
And now the black street cred and lefty bona
fides they provided, so crucial to Barack Obama's early
local success, are proving corrosive to his national
Bart, Obama has attended this church for twenty
He brings his impressionable daughters to hear
this hateful speech every Sunday?
How in the world can we heal the racial divide
if black children listen to this hatred?
How can these children listen to this kind of
racially charged demagoguery on Sunday
and then sit next to white classmates on Monday
and not feel hatred?
If you are taught to respect the pastor, how
can these children grow up without hating white people?
If Barack Obama truly wanted to heal the racial
divide, he would not participate in a church
that does not embrace people of all colors and
races. If he truly believes in the the teachings
Pastor Wright and his church, how can he be the
leader of the USA?
If he did not condone this hatred, he would have
quit the church long ago.
Instead, he had Pastor Wright as his campaign
"In his Economic Club of New York speech, Bush
urged the businessmen and women in the audience not to overreact. And
if you've ever seen the footage of him reading to the children on 9/11, you know one
thing this guy doesn't do is overreact.'" -- Jimmy Kimmel
"With no particular dog in the Democratic fight,
many conservatives have tended to think it would be good for the country if
Obama were to win the Democratic nomination, freeing us from the dreary prospect
of the return of the House of Clinton. Now I wonder. Might the country be better off with
the cynicism of the Clintons than the conceit of Obama?"
No particular dog in the Democratic fight?
What a clever turn of phrase.
His 'dog' was Obama.
Now he's decided to drop him off at the shelter.

Excerpt: The thunderous applause was still ringing in
his ears when the state's new governor,
David Paterson, told the Daily Whore News that
he and his wife had extramarital affairs.
Both Paterson, 53, and his wife, Michelle, 46,
acknowledged they each had intimate
relationships with others during a rocky period
in their marriage several years ago.
Paterson banged "a woman other than my wife,"
for two or three years starting in 1999.
Love the radio show. You keep getting better all
It's a damn shame you're loosing so many subscribers
I guess some people just can't deal with a bit
Love the show. Love the format. Like how frequently
you've been able to
put the episodes up. I hope you can sustain the
pace. I know I can.
But, I've been unable to listen to the latest
episodes because of technical difficulties.
All my media players keep buffering the stream
up to about 4% - then stop.
About the same happens in the archives.
I was wondering if you could possibly put new
episodes up on iTunes.
I've listened to some old ones on there before.
I think iTunes provides a login for subscriber
Alex, there's nothing odd about those radio files,
they're just MP3s.
Are you saying none of your media players will

Have you tried the download and

It would be odd if you could hear other MP3s but not mine, so lemme
Excerpt: An Air National Guard jet mistakenly dropped
a 22-pound non-explosive, practice bomb
on an apartment complex, damaging the foundation
but no one was injured, police said Friday.
The military pilot thought he had dropped the
BDU-33 bomb, equipped with a dummy warhead,
over a field in Kansas during a routine training
mission out of Tulsa on Thursday.
A couple returned home to the Canyon Creek apartment
complex and found the ordnance partly
buried in the foundation and the power knocked
out, Tulsa Police Officer Jason Willingham said.
The apartment manager said, "God must love
the people at Canyon Creek."
This is from 2005 on Obama's own Web site:
Obama acknowledges, with no small irony, that
he benefits from his race.
If he were white, he once bluntly noted, he would
simply be one of nine
freshmen senators, almost certainly without a
multimillion-dollar book deal
and a shred of celebrity. Or would he have been
elected at all?
"We might all be disappointed as hell one morning
in November. But these past few weeks I've had more
fun than I've had in a long time." -- Piggy the vulgar Pigboy, predicting
doom for the Fascists in November,
Brent Budowsky can say anything he wants, but I called him on a bunch
of clumsy lies
#137 and if he heard that, he should be plenty
pissed about putting himself
in the position where some lo-talent Okie with an IQ of 64 could make
such a fool out of
the guy Randi Rhodes calls, "The smartest
man I know."
If I was him, and I got my ass kicked by some Okie, I'd need a drink.
Christ, he's like some former CIA analyst.
I have no business kicking his ass in a debate.
Losing to me should make him feel awful.

"Given that candidate Clinton ...clearly
thinks that a lot (if not most) states "don't matter," and epitomizes a 1990s style top-down
form of doing politics, it's no surprise that for all of 2007, Clinton never exceeded 11 percent support
in the monthly Daily Kos users straw poll, -- Kos, on how "progressive" his site is Link
Yeah, Hillary hates the states "that don't
matter." She thinks "the little people"
should be kicked off cliffs.
Koresh, how much more could a "c-word" hate America?
And how about, "Change can't happen from the
top down, change must happen from the bottom up?"
Anybody got a freaking clue what that's supposed to mean?
And the fact that the Democrat's 20-point front-runner could never reach
12 percent on Kos,
does that tell you more about the front-runner or does it tell you
more about Kos?
The truth is, Hillary ranked below 2 percent on Kos's poll for a year.
And then they said name recognition is what made her the front-runner.
I hope Kos hasn't been driven crazy by all those millions he's earned.
That'd be a shame.
Excerpt: "'Well, that's history. That's the past. That's
talking about what happened before.
What we should be talking about is what we're
going to do now.'
The man who spoke those words was Senator John
and the subject was the Iraq war
and its origins in official falsehood, strategic
error and wishful thinking. Expect to hear him repeat
those same dismissive phrases again and again
as the presidential campaign unfolds.
Understandably, he prefers to avoid examining
how our finest young people and vast amounts of
our national treasure came to be squandered,
since he was among the war's most excited advocates."
The Clintons are evil, corporate whores who will
do anything for power,
whereas Obama is a good and decent man who will
lead us to a better future
